After pretending he didn’t want Grand Wizard of the KKK, David Duke’s support, which he does, and deserves. Trump, who claims he wants no endorsements went on Twitter and claimed Robert Redford supports his candidacy, which Redford’s rep immediately put an end to such outrageous claims.
Trump, who claims, “I don’t care about endorsements,” proudly tweeted a quote from Redford Tuesday morning in which Redford speaks positively about the presidential candidate: “I’m glad [Trump is] in there because him being the way he is, and saying what he says the way he says it, I think shakes things up, and I think that’s very needed. Because on the other side, it’s so bland, it’s so boring, it’s so empty.”
Trump wrote, “Wow! Such nice words from Robert Redford on my running for President. Thank you, Robert.”
However Redford’s rep quickly denounced that tweet by Trump, saying, that while the quote reflects the actor’s enjoyment of Trump as a character, it doesn’t mean he wants him as the next president of the United States.
“He enjoys him,” Redford’s rep added, “but not for president.”
The quote Trump pulled is from a recent Larry King interview. The entire quote paints a slightly different picture than what Trump presented: “He’s got such a big foot in his mouth, I’m not sure you could get it out,” Redford told King. “But on the other hand, I’m glad he’s in there.”
Redford then went on to call the presidential race “Looney Tunes” and “crazy stuff.”
“It’s like, come on, you guys,” said Redford. “You’re making us feel foolish, just having to watch you.”
