Clint Eastwood Misses The Good Ol' Days Of Racism; At Least He Has A Hot Son Comments (0)

Esquire September 2016 cover_CLINT AND SCOTT EASTWOOD(Images by Terry Richardson for Esquire)

Surprisingly, rich, old, white male Clint Eastwood is fed up with this P.C. bull, longing for the days when (racist) men were (racist) men.

From his new Esquire interview, done in tandem with hot, steadfastly apolitical (at least publicly) son Scott:

We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing Esquire Sept issue_Scott Eastwood photo people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.

It wasn't called racism, it just was racism. The stuff he's referring to is not political correctness, it's actual bigotry. He even uses a Trump kerfuffle with clear anti-Mexican origins to prove his point:

I haven’t endorsed anybody. I haven’t talked to Trump. I haven’t talked to anybody. You know, he’s a racist now because he’s talked about this judge. And yeah, it’s a dumb thing to say. I mean, to predicate your opinion on the fact that the guy was born to Mexican parents or something. He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides.

No, both sides are not using xenophobia to get votes, Clint. One side is. Actually, your side is:

I'd have to go for Trump … you know, 'cause [Hillary]'s declared that she's gonna follow in Obama's footsteps. There's been just too much funny business on both sides of the aisle. She's made a lot of dough out of being a politician. I gave up dough to be a politician. I'm sure that Ronald Reagan gave up dough to be a politician.

All about the money. With a dose of misogyny for good measure:

What about [Hillary]? I mean, it's a tough voice to listen to for four years. It could be a tough one.

He's made some good movies, many bad, but he's an asshole regardless, and that's a shame when an iconic figure so many find so talented is also so, so selfish and ignorant. Well, he's only 86; maybe it's just a phase he'll grow out of.

Is Trump For Real? Comments (0)


Esquire's new cover story on Donald Trump—great cover and cover line—is preceded by a letter from the EIC, who thinks Trump is just playing a game:

It was business as usual inside Trump Tower, and he broke off the interview right in the middle to give me a call.

After he bragged that he had "destroyed" Ben Carson ("I had to do it"), he was off on a conversation very much like the one I wrote about in my editor's letter two months ago. Here's how it ended this time:

"Yeah. So good to talk to you, man. So good. Hey, call me, like, in Florida or something; we'll play. You know, I have Doral, I have Palm Beach, so whenever you're down there, call me and we'll play, okay? Or you'll play with some friends. But call me, okay? You take care of yourself, David. Have a good time, thanks."

This is not a man who is planning to occupy the White House. This is not the man who personifies the rage that is rippling through our culture. When you talk with Donald, you get the distinct impression that he's enjoying this other person, this fellow named Donald Trump, out there tuning up the rubes.

I think this outlook is dangerous because Trump could very well win the nomination and the presidency. It is not out of the question. And if he does, it will not matter if he was just having fun and ginning people up—he will be the most powerful dude on Earth, for real.

Balls To The Wall: Tom Hardy For ESQUIRE Comments (0)
  Tom-Hardy-Esquire-1 Tom-Hardy-Esquire-2 Tom-Hardy-Esquire-3

Tom Hardy is looking unbelievably hot on and in Esquire (May 2014). The magazine identifies him as genuinely dangerous and possibly the greatest actor of his generation. For some reason, they asked him to shave off his beard:

“We asked Hardy to shave his beard. His response: 'I ain't shaving my beard for you. To shave my beard off would be to cut my fking [sic] nuts off...and give them to you to sell.'”

I wouldn't sell them.
