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.
It's safe to say that Donald Trump hasn't been in the news for the best reasons lately.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.
There's been one story which has dominated the headlines recently."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.
Thankfully, one of the finest political voices has spoken out in support of the president.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.
Voight also has another huge claim to fame.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.
Although the pair's relationship has been somewhat strained.Jolie's mom and dad separated when she was very young. At age six, Jolie lost all contact with her father.
They have tried to mend things over the years.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.
Voight's latest move has the internet feeling confused.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.
His main point?Voight wanted to praise Donald Trump, alongside wishing him the very best of luck for his upcoming presidential run in 2020. Yikes.
Voight claimed to have one simple wish.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."
The star also derides book-learning."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.
Voight goes on to defend right-wing politics."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."
He also pours huge criticism on the left."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."
He then turns his affections towards Trump."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."
This isn't the first time that Voight has complimented Trump.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."

Some are actually a little concerned for the star.
@jonvoight It is horrible to see an average actor parade his descent into dementia like this.— Liz Pollitt #JC4PM (@Liz Pollitt #JC4PM)1566167972.0
Although someone else seems to think otherwise.Trump replied to Voight's rambling video, thanking him for the support. Well, we guess you've got to take what you can get.
Although others have pointed this out.
