Jon Voight Supports Trump Despite His Misogynistic Comments About Daughter Angelina Jolie
Yes, Angelina Jolie’s father Jon Voight is an adamant supporter of the current president Donald Trump. We were surprised for obvious reasons as well as reasons we could not have expected. Donal Trump has made inappropriate and really misogynistic comments about Jon Voight’s own daughter Angelina Jolie.
What Trump Said About Angelina Jolie
A few years ago, before Trump even became a presidential candidate for the Republic party, he attended Howard Stern’s show. It was there where he opened up about what he feels about Angelina Jolie.
The question Trump was asked was this:
“I’d say, Mr. Trump, who are the great beauties? If I ask you some names, can you tell me who the great beauties are?”
That is when Trump’s misogynistic rambling went on:
First of all, the great beauties aren’t actresses. It’s models and a lot of these girls who work in the…anyone who works in the entertainment industry, I’ve only seen sixes and sevens
When Howard Stern mentioned Angelina Jolie, here’s what Donald Trump had to say:
Seven! He goes, ‘You know who is a great beauty? My daughter Ivanka. She’s a 10.
This goes well with the low-key incestuous and weird remarks Trump has already made about her own daughter Ivanka Trump.
But Trump has made even more inappropriate comments about actress Angelina Jolie back in 2007 in an interview with Larry King:
“Angelina Jolie is sort of amazing because everyone thinks she’s like this great beauty, and I’m not saying she’s an unattractive woman, but she’s not a beauty, by any stretch of the imagination. In terms of beauty, she’s not a great beauty. She’s a nice-looking woman. She’s okay. But she’s not a great beauty.”
That’s not all!
“I remember at the Academy Awards a few years ago she was frenching her brother. She was giving her brother lip kisses like I never saw before in my life. And she had just said she made love to Billy Bob Thornton in the back of the limousine on the way over. And I wouldn’t want to shake her hand, by the way.”
Jon Voight Still Supporting Trump
What’s concerning is that Angelina Jolie’s own father, Jon Voight, chooses to dismiss all of these comments, and still support Donald Trump. In fact, Voight thinks that Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.
And President Lincoln, who sits here with us. I’m sure is smiling knowing America will be saved by an honest and good man who will work for all the people, no matter their creed or color.
We’re not sure why Jon Voight dismisses all of these comments Trump makes about his own daughter. But that might have a little something to do with the fact that Voight and Angelina’s relationship wasn’t always a perfect one.
Jon and Angelina’s Fraught Relationship Over The Years
Over the course of Angelina Jolie’s career, Jon Voight suddenly became too concerned about his daughter’s emotional state of health. In about 2001, some disagreements and misunderstandings led to the father and daughter not speaking for almost 5 years. They only restarted their communication when Angelina’s mother had died.
Though, the two have reconciled and are on good terms. Voight loves to spend time with his grand kids and states that he is proud of her daughter. But Angelina has expressed how they only talk about art and not politics. This is probably a good idea since their views are so politically different and these talks never fare well during family dinners.
But, it still doesn’t make sense why Voight chooses to ignore these misogynistic remarks Trump made about Angelina way back in the day.
