Clint Eastwood Defends His Support For Gay Marriage On “Ellen”

By: Daley Quinn / September 18, 2012

Throwing his feet up on the coffee table isn’t the only thing Clint Eastwood is totally relaxed about. During his interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Eastwood shared his views on gay marriage and his libertarian beliefs: “Socially, [they believe to] leave everyone alone, but [they] believe in fiscal responsibility and government staying out of your life.” DeGeneres then pressed Eastwood — who famously spoke to an empty chair at the Republican National Convention earlier this month — about his stance on gay marriage, noting that he had previously said he had no problem with it. Eastwood’s response was again, “Leave everyone alone!”

Although I certainly don’t agree with Clint Eastwood on everything, I can agree with him there are so many other problems the United States is facing today, including massive amounts of debt, that we should be focusing on, rather than wasting our time on “what gay marriage is about.”

I just wished more of his Republican friends in positions of power agreed with him.
