Tim Allen On Talking About President Trump: ‘You’ve Gotta Be Real Careful’ In Hollywood
Tim Allen said that when it comes to talking about President Donald Trump “you’ve gotta be real careful” in Hollywood.
During his Thursday night appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the 63-year-old actor said that as a comedian he “[likes] going on both sides” of the political aisle and jokingly compared 1930s Germany to the attitude in Hollywood today when it comes to the president.

“You’ve gotta be real careful around here,” Allen said. “You get beat up if don’t believe what everybody believes. This is like ’30s Germany. I don’t know what happened.” (RELATED: Tim Allen: ‘We’re Going To Drill Hillary Clinton’ If She Continues To Lead Democrats)
“If you’re not part of the group, ‘you know what we believe is right,’ I go, ‘Well, I might have a problem with that,'” he added.
He also talked about attending Trump’s inauguration and how this government does everything “big.”
“This government does stuff big,” Allen said. “I’ve never been to anything like that. Just so many people, and when they show up, you know, the ex-president gets in a helicopter and there’s jets and marines taking him this way and there’s parades, but it looks like a Cadillac parade, everything was just rows of Cadillacs. My kids were going, ‘Is this the parade?’ It’s like black Cadillac after black Cadillac and then a tractor.”
In a past interview with Fox News, the actor called out Hollywood for their hypocrisy when it comes to criticizing Trump as a bully while bullying people who praise him.
“What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully, but if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that,” Allen said. “And … it gets a little bit hypocritical to me.”
“Mostly what I’m finding [as a comedian] is there’s no source material…like he was against homosexuals somehow and I said where did you..whoever said that,” he added. “Didn’t he wave the flag at the convention? I feel like we are playing that game telephone.”
