Actor Jon Voight has endorsed President Trump. many pro-Trump statements,
Voight won the best actor Oscar for his role in the 1978 film “Coming Home” and currently has a role on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” for which he’s won a best supporting actor Golden Globe, the Western Journal reported.
“There is no better man to take this country to its highest call of God. There is only one man,” Voight said.
“This is our president of the United States of America, Donald Trump,” Voight said.
Voight argued that the last four years had been very good for the country: “No man will take this to the heights he has,” Voight said.
“Take this pledge with me,” Vioght asked Americans. “Let us all vote for our president to win this battle, and with this win, he and the Almighty will make America great once again.”
“I stand with all of you — and, for the love of our country and with the power of God, may he give strength to all so they can follow the truth, see the truth and vote for the only truth, President Trump.”
“We call upon our highest prayers and ask Jesus, Moses and all saints to save the truth that has been taken down by these cruel individuals of the left and ask God to place his hands upon this nation of the United States of America and bless and protect the truth for our President Donald Trump, so he can continue his legacy as one of our greatest presidents,” Voight added.
Voight criticized “the radical left” for “filthy lies and distortion of the mighty truths that have been written.”
“This is a disgrace to mankind and a disgrace to the people of the United States of America,” he said.
“For their control of deceit and disgusting lies against our President Trump, who held to his promise for our country [and] his word for our country’s love,” he concluded.
Voight has been heavily criticized in Hollywood over his support of Trump. In particular, actress and political activist Alyssa Milano called Voight an “F-lister.”
From Western Journal:
You could be the most famous actor in the Southern California firmament, but you put on a MAGA cap and fellow stars would be like, “Leonardo who? I don’t remember any of this guy’s movies. ‘Titanic?’ Sounds like some direct-to-video disaster flick, right?”
The great thing is that Jon Voight doesn’t care — as a recent video dispatch yet again proved…
The media coverage of this one was predictable as ever, with USA Today identifying the 81-year-old as “the father of actress Angelina Jolie.”
I’m a millennial. I know who Jon Voight is without his daughter.
Trust me, it’s not that difficult, especially if you watch a few movies that aren’t from Disney or don’t have Voldemort in them.
Then again, as a member of a generation where at least half of the political spectrum demands the un-personing of everyone who doesn’t agree with their views, it’s easy to see why people don’t know who Jon Voight is, even though he’s a working actor.
His beliefs don’t coincide with theirs so, well, you do the math.
