Hollywood Megastar Just Sounded off on Trump – and What He Said Was Shocking

Donald_Trump_hairBy B. Christopher Agee. Owen Wilson, a predominantly comedic actor showing off his dramatic chops in the new film No Escape, ventured into the political realm recently when describing Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Wilson – described as a “staunch liberal” – acknowledged he is at least intrigued by Trump’s brash approach to politics.

“You can’t help but get a kick out of him,” he admitted, “and I think part of it is we’re so used to politicians on both sides sounding like actors at press junkets. It’s sort of by rote, and they say all the right things.”

Trump, by comparison, does not follow “that script,” Wilson said.

“It’s like when Charlie Sheen was doing that stuff,” he continued, apparently referring to the actor’s infamous public meltdown in 2011. “Like, wow! He’s answering a question completely honestly, and in an entertaining way.”

When it comes to Trump’s ideology, however, Wilson is less compelled. Either way, he said it is far too early in the process to declare Trump the Republican nominee – much less a general election winner.

Donald Trump Trounces GOP Field, Biden Leads General Election Match-Ups

By Theodore Schleifer. Vice President Joe Biden fares better against top GOP candidates in hypothetical general election match-ups than Hillary Clinton, according to a new national survey.

The Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday, also shows Donald Trump smashing the GOP presidential competition garnering 28% support from registered Republican voters in the 17-member field. The real estate mogul’s closest competitor is retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who tallies 12%.

Just 7% said they would vote for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a record low since November 2013.

Those results show just how far both Trump — now the Republican front-runner — and Bush — the old one — have come. Bush led national polls for much of the first half of 2015, but was quickly dislodged by Trump, after he announced his presidential ambitions this June.

Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida both are tied with Bush at 7%, the polls shows, with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at 6% and former tech CEO Carly Fiorina and Ohio Gov. John Kasich tied at 5%. (Read more from this story HERE)
