Last man standing Star Tim Allen has described his silence on former President Donald Trump as not joining “the lynch mob.”
In a long interview about Marc Maron Wtf podcast, the conservative Allen explained why he stays away from talking about politics. “I literally preach nothing,” Allen told Maron. “What I’ve done is just not join, as I call it, the ‘us culture’. I’m not telling anyone else how to live. “
Allen continued, “I don’t like that, ‘we should do this’ or ‘we should do that.’ Regarding Trump, Allen said: “Once I realized that the last president pissed people off, I liked it. . So it was fun not saying anything. I didn’t join the lynch mob. “
the Home improvement Star also shared her anti-tax stance: “Once I started making money, I had a silent partner who only took almost half of my money and never gave me anything for it and that was the taxes.”
He added: “I work pretty hard for these things and I accomplished a lot and was handicapped by my own mistakes… but I had a silent partner. I never liked taxes. “He said the silent partner was” the government. “
Allen also spoke with Maron about the 1978 drug arrest that put him behind bars for more than two years. “After my father died,” he said, “I really played with people and told the adults what they wanted to hear and then I stole their drink.” He was arrested with a pound of cocaine at a Michigan airport when he was 23, the same number of years he has been sober.
“I literally learned how to live from day to day,” Allen said of his time in prison. And I learned to shut up. You definitely want to learn to shut up. “
