2020 defending people who were duplicitous. john: crooks and thieves this is just a poor actor. >> w has a lot of sway especially with young people unfortunately like better not young people take the cue from celebrities. being hip and cool means in favor of the conservationist policies that harrison ford got his chest waxed over but i don't care he owns seven airplanes. i would love to but do not lecture me or the rest of us that we are on the press of this of karmic added while you have a sasquatch sized car ben for prep. that is at i confronted him. >> the press treats actors fferently thepaparazzi annoy them but reporters to question them. . bill: exclusivity the interviews are patty cake
12:08 am
they will not grow them on substantive policy positions that thects themselves have taken itis not out of the blue but somebody asked harrison ford is serious question about his own personal car been r a pram. we would have to walk around spraying aerosol cans all day long just toeep up with his carbon footprint. john: you are an independent voting for republicans and democrats but that makes him very unusual.@ overwhelmingly days of four liberal democrats and obama certainly and that led to another pledge. >> to be of service to barack obama. >> i pledged to be of service to our presidents. >> and all mankind. together became and. john: dunne guess we can campaign. my book is titled "no they

can't." i have a problem they say yes wean meaning individuals but president and obama of the means government and that is a dangerous idea. and you are not allowed to say things like that in hollywood. >> not allowed to disagree with hollywood. it is mind-boggling that things that come out of people's mouths they pushing employers did everything they push for does not have the fact on them. i have called with the big names i say you can afford to be a socialist you are worth $100 billion. john: you said that? aughter] to george clooney. >> he says raise taxes. >> to drive a toyota petraeus to the ms -- jemmies but they have a private airplane and i wish i had a private airplane. >> many advate to raise taxes but well-connected

12:11 am
that is the hypocrisy that is frustrating to se why i wrote the book calling of these people on their duplicity. john: one final example some of the activists are so eager to promote anti- catalist they glamorize people like bill ears -- bill ayers they killed people and bombed buildings and obama held a fund-raiser in bill ayers living room so robert redford came out with a movie based on the weather underground that the terrorists are on the run. >> we'd never be trade any of us all these years. >> i saw an interview with him about this movie he is behind it wanted to% it was the good thing.

12:13 am
but this goes beyond hypocrisy it is a human decency factor. it is one thing to make a movie about the weather underground terrorist but another thing to romanticize it to make get a heartfelt. a bank robbery that resulted in the murder of two police officers and a security guard and now redford will make a movie that is essentially one b tribute? it i remarkably deplorable even by hollywood standards. john: thank you jon and kevin. please go to facebook or twitter to keep the conversati going and use that #hollywood and let people know what you think. people know what you think. more celebrity hy this is the quicksilver cash back card from capione.
