While appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday, comedian Tim Allen compared modern Hollywood to 1930s Germany, telling the host that supporters of President Trump “gotta be real careful” about what they say.
“You’ve gotta be real careful around here. You might get beat up if don’t believe what everybody believes. This is like ’30s Germany. I don’t know what happened,” he said.
BizPac Review added:
“If you’re not part of the group, ‘you know what we believe is right,’ I go, ‘Well, I might have a problem with that,’” he joked, adding that he likes “going on both sides” of the political aisle.
The Republican actor and star of ABC’s “Last Man Standing,” has called out his colleagues for their hypocrisy in attacking Trump and his supporters and has sometimes used his show’s character, Mike Baxter, to make social and political commentary.
He told Kimmel about his experience at Trump’s inauguration in January.
“This government does stuff big,” Allen said. “I’ve never been to anything like that. Just so many people, and when they show up, you know, the ex-president gets in a helicopter and there’s jets and marines taking him this way and there’s parades, but it looks like a Cadillac parade, everything was just rows of Cadillacs. My kids were going, ‘Is this the parade?’ It’s like black Cadillac after black Cadillac and then a tractor.”
Here’s video of his comments:
“What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully,” Allen told Megyn Kelly last November. “But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that.”
“It gets a little hypocritical to me that you can now bully people,” he added.
