Jon Voight Calls Donald Trump ‘the Greatest President of This Century’

Share on Facebook

As the world further questions the authority of Donald Trump’s Presidency (and as the death of his former “best friend” becomes more and more suspicious-looking), he’ll be glad to hear that he’s not entirely out of fans. But the latest one to surface may be one of the most unexpected yet.

Actor, Jon Voight, best known for his role as Joe Buck in 1969’s Midnight Cowboy also has another claim to fame – he’s the father of UN ambassador and activist, Angelina Jolie. But we can’t imagine that this self-proclaimed feminist would be too pleased with her dad’s latest actions. Keep scrolling for the full (bizarre) video.

As the 2020 elections approach, things are starting to look a little strained for Trump – although, of course, he’d be the last to admit it.

“Best friend” of Trump, Jeffrey Epstein, was recently indicted for multiple counts of child sexual abuse. He then mysteriously died in prison – which many people think was no suicide.

Or, at least, one old actor who is renowned for posting long, rambling opinion videos on his Twitter, Jon Voight.

You may recognize Voight from Midnight Cowboy.

In the 1969 movie, Voight plays a naive male prostitute who heads to New York City to make it big – and much drama ensues.

He’s the father of perhaps one of the most famous actresses in Hollywood history, Angelina Jolie. Here they are together at a party for KISS at Firoucci in Los Angeles in 1978.

Jolie’s mom and dad separated when she was very young. At age six, Jolie lost all contact with her father.

But in recent years, they’ve become more and more estranged. And with Voight constantly making bizarre, right-wing proclamations online, we don’t see things getting fixed anytime soon.

This week, the Hollywood star took to Twitter to rant about the sad scene of U.S. politics – and the contents of the video are pretty weird.

Voight wanted to praise Donald Trump, alongside wishing him the very best of luck for his upcoming presidential run in 2020. Yikes.

He said that he wishes for more kindness and harmony on Earth, saying: “This is not peace. This is not love. This is hate among the radical left.”

“No amount of book smart will show the given policy of what truth stands for. Truth is a powerful emotion. Love…is what we should be voting for,” he goes on.

“And I must say that we – the Republican Party – have voted for renewal, for a place of safety, a community where all can have peace.”

“This is war among the left. They have hate, it’s like a venom. No words of God, no words of love, but a radical emotion of hate,” he raves. “Hate … like venom.”

“I’ve said this many times and I’m saying it again. From the deep truths of my heart and soul, President Trump is a man of truths, love, and justice for the American people and also for the people of a sacred place – Israel. Not only does he love our country, the United States of America, but he has a love for the people of all nations.”

In the past, he called him “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.” But, in this video, he doubles down, calling him “the greatest president of this century.”

If you want to hear more from the man who claimed that “racism has been solved long ago by our forefathers for peace and love,” then you’re in luck. Just press play.

As his broadcasts become more and more erratic, many are wondering if there’s more to this story than meets the eye.

Trump replied to Voight’s rambling video, thanking him for the support. Well, we guess you’ve got to take what you can get.

In the grand scheme of Trump’s Twitter behavior, this is just a drop in the ocean in terms of erratic social media content.

He’s also come under fire today for this really weird joke (?) about Greenland. Honestly, you couldn’t make it up. Feeling down in the dumps about Trump? This guy has had the best response to his supporters.
