Jon Voight thinks Donald Trump is the best president since Abraham Lincoln

27th Annual Movieguide Awards Gala

The long Memorial Day weekend generally brings some shenanigans on social media, meaning that weird things and weird people begin to “trend” for absurd reasons. This is one of those times. On Saturday, “Jon Voight” was trending for hours because he did a video appeal to… Republicans, I guess, about how Donald Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln and we all need to pray for Trump or something. I honestly couldn’t follow his thought process because I turned this off after 30 seconds (sorry for the Deplorable user video, blah):

I mean… did people only just now realize that Jon Voight has been unhinged about politics? He’s been unhinged for years. I think the Obama presidency really broke Voight – something about seeing an educated, charismatic and beloved Democrat in the White House just threw Voight off kilter and he’s never really recovered. His brain broke and it’s never healed. For years now, Voight has ranted about Israel and Iran and whatever bonkers conspiracy theories are being peddled on right-wing radio shows. Voight has been ride-or-die for Trump for a while too.

The only good thing that came out of this “oh, right, Jon Voight is bonkers” reminder is that so many people were also like “Oh, yeah, that’s right, Angelina Jolie hates her father.” Silver lining!

    Jon Voight, he not right in the brain.

    • Seraphina says:


      Obviously he is lacking oxygen to the brain. Angie needs to focus on him too.

      • Snazzy says:

        Why would she need to focus on him? Hell no. She needs to keep as far away as possible, taking care of herself and her children. That fool is in no way her responsibility

    I can’t ever imagine degrading myself by publically gargling the fetid orange balls of a man who’s demonstrably unable to operate an umbrella, but then I’ve never been crippled by tertiary syphilitic dementia. I look forward to seeing him rant at an empty chair at the RNC.

    • guilty pleasures says:

      @ Elkie, I chuckled while reading your comment, thinking, ‘I wonder what The Orange turd thinks this means?’ Then I remembered, it doesn’t read!

  3. Rainy Red Carpet says:

    Lyndon B Johnson is my favourite.

  4. CROWHOOD says:

    Jon Voight has always been a dumpster human. It’s why Brad never stood a chance in his gaslight manipulation game- Angelina already knows how to walk through the fire the men in her life burn, and she hits the other side without even smelling like smoke.

      WORD! PREACH IT!!!!

      Eh I’m the same age as AJ and if my dad were alive, he would be #Trumpforever. And we would be battling it out over him. He would send me emails constantly about how Obama was ruining the country. My last email to him was to stop worrying about things that you cannot control.

    • Snappyfish says:

      Exactly this! I’m not sure there are words to accurately describe The vermin that is Voight. Righteous trash comes to mind. Pandering to a traitor. George Washington said it best “Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism” that sums up Voight, Trump & the entire steaming pile that is the GOP

  5. Lensblury says:

    Well, of course he does. Ugh…

  6. Sue Denim says:

    Interesting that he invokes a Pres on the brink of civil war as I truly worry that’s where we’re headed, that or, more likely, a DJT takeover a la Putin. And as for brains breaking, such a good way to put it — I feel like mine broke w the Kavanaugh hearings, worse for me even than the elections…just a horrifying experience of enraged male entitlement and utter degradation of a dignified, well spoken woman. Sigh…but happy Memorial Day all, enjoy the Spring day. We’re better than all of this…

    • Surly Gale says:

      I’ve been feeling your way for awhile now, Sue Denim. About war, I mean. I believe (because the NRA has been losing money and Trump is in their pockets) he doesn’t care if it’s an international war or a civil war. I think he just plain old wants war..

    “I think the Obama presidency really broke Voight – something about seeing an educated, charismatic and beloved Democrat in the White House just threw Voight off kilter and he’s never really recovered.”

    There’s some descriptor about President Obama that enrages Voight that’s missing. What in the world could it be? Is it tall, slim, athletic, good looking, beloved husband and father? I’m not sure. Gotta put on my thinking cap.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      Yep, came here to say the same thing….there’s a word missing, could it be … Black?

    • Mel M says:

      I was just having a conversation with my husband about this very thing because both our parents have lost all humanity in suppose this thing. I was once again wondering why his base literally worships him and sees nothing wrong with anything he does when they weren’t like this with either Bush or Reagan. Yeah they supported them but there wasn’t this out of their minds-lunacy-cult-like adoration of them that there is with rump and I think one big reason is because of the Obama presidency. I think they sat there raging for eight years and now that they have power again they’ve gone off the deep end. I think they would’ve done it with any republican that got elected but unfortunately for us the lowest of the low got elected and has brought out the worst in these people because he’s the worst.

      • Snowflake says:

        I think you’re right

      • Sue Denim says:

        I think many of the MAGA people are also a lot more scared and angry than they were then, w a lost way of life as mfg and other low skill but once relatively high paying, reasonably secure jobs went away. Rather than pivot, adapt, grow, or even blame the rising inequality that’s a big source of their issues, they’re looking for scapegoats and the plutocrats are all too happy to provide that. That’s what’s so devastatingly scary about these times; we’ve been on this path as a species before and it doesn’t end well…

      • cutitout says:

        Fear is very powerful. There is no coincidence that the biggest example of white-privilege would be elected after we had a Black president. They spent 8 years trying to demonize him in order to find a scapegoat for their racism and unwillingness to give up their positions of privilege. Electing Trump was a last ditch effort to reclaim and reinforce white privilege and white ethnocentrism. The worst enemy of MAGA folk are MAGA folk and their unwillingness to adapt and evolve.

    • A says:

      There was an article that someone wrote where children of parents who excessively watch Fox News were asked to submit their stories. A LOT of them wrote some variation of, “My parents always leaned somewhat on the Democrat side of things, even if they weren’t a total progressive liberal all of the time…and then Obama got elected. And then they lost their SH*T.”

      And I was just like, hmmmm…..wonder why…..soo many people….esp so many Democrat leaning people…..just flipped their lid….after Obama got elected…..wonder what was so different about OBAMA…HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM ;;thinking emoji;;

      • Aang says:

        My in laws voted for Obama twice. Then they started watching Fox and listening to right wing radio. They are crazy people now. NPR just ran a story about how for some reason older people loose their ability to spot a scam and are easily fooled by con artists.

      • Jerusha says:

        @Aang. Maybe “some” older people. I’m 74 and sharp as a tack if I do say so myself.

      • Surly Gale says:

        My son’s paternal side (in the US) are for Trump…..I am disengaging. My son’s maternal side (Canadian and British) are not for Trump…..and we’re losing his mind, because in the construction industry, where men are men and swear and grunt many think Trump is doing good work, tho I don’t know why. When I say something about, for example, steel and aluminium tariffs that are hurting them, they say means to an end. I raised him right…seeing him go sideways like this w/the family that abandoned him when he was a baby is really, really hard. Loving him through this hurts me, too.

  8. Cattywampus says:

    How is he still alive? He’s like older than Methuselah.

  9. LeaTheFrench says:

    I have no words.

  10. Peg says:

    This is from Paul Rudnick
    Trump has the support of men, whose children don’t speak to them(Jon Voight), men who hit their wives (Rob Porter), men who call their wives “mother” (Mike Pence), pedophiles (Roy Moore), men who harass women (Bill O’Reilly), and a fussy butler from a 70s sit-com (Lindsey Graham)

  11. Alexis says:

    One logical thought that I hope gets back to Trump….. Please do not announce that you are sending troops to any country before they get there. I don’t have Twitter. I do however, have a great friend whose son was just sent to Afghanistan and while midflight, it was announced that they were being deployed. They could possibly be shot down midflight. I don’t think that it is too much to ask to wait until they get to their destination to announce your plans.

  12. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    There’s no silver lining with him. He’s a translucent gummy.

  13. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Angelina and I have a LOT in common. We are both Geminis. And we both had garbage human beins as fathers who we cut out of out lives without a second thought.

  14. Alexis says:

    Is that Marilyn Manson? Good Lord.

  15. Valerie says:

    lol, and people lost their minds over Robert De Niro, who spoke the real truth. His timing didn’t reflect well on him, but he was right. It’s funny to watch conservative tough guys fall apart and denounce the man who was their alpha-male hero only two years ago.

    • Snowflake says:

      I love Robert DeNiro for speaking out like that.

      • Valerie says:

        I think he should’ve held his tongue at the American Icon Awards, but at the same time, I have to hand it to him for aiming it where he did. He knows that Hollywood is full of Repubs/Trumppies and that they would be in attendance that evening.

  16. Wolfy says:

    Uh everybody….. What if he really IS the Antichrist ?

  17. judith reeder says:

    Its sad that Jon Voight, is suffering from dementia!!

  18. Holly hobby says:

    Haha that’s all I got

  19. kerwood says:

    It wasn’t just having a Black President that drove the deplorables insane. It was that President Obama was so clearly a better man than all of them. President Obama was an intelligent accomplished man who knew how to reach out to the highest and the lowest. He was never afraid to show emotion in public. President Obama led the nation and for 8 years, the United States was admired and envied by the entire world BECAUSE OF HIM. President Obama loved and was loved by his whole family, including two intelligent, beautiful daughters, who have done nothing to cause him shame and his wife, a brilliant accomplished woman who he clearly adored and admired. None of the deplorables have ANY of this and they can’t stand the fact that a Black man has it. And last, but not least, President Barack Obama, a biracial man CHOSE to identify as a Black man. They can’t stand that and will NEVER forgive him for it.

  20. Hmmm says:

    Angelina Jolie has forgiven her father even if he kisses Donald’s as after trashed Angelina .

    She has more integrity and more of something we don’t know because I myself would never forgive my dad If he kissed the has of someone who basically called me ugly and worse,

  21. Liz Simpson says:

    He’s a true piece of shit and like knows like.
    How embarrassing for his grandkids, hope he’s blackballed now so we don’t have to see his horrible face and stupid scarf ever again.

  22. Win says:

    He needs to be able to voice his own opinion without everyone jumping all over him!

    • Jerusha says:

      He.voiced his opinion. We have the right to voice our opinions. I’m sure he got lots of virtual pats on the back from certain segments of the population.

  23. Kate says:

    Voight, for several reasons, has always made my skin crawl. Once again proof water seeks its’ own level.

  24. Jane says:

    Remember a couple of years ago when Brad tried to reunite Angelina and Jon. It makes you question Brad because why would you want your wife to reunite with someone that despicable even if it’s her father. Especially a father who publicly criticized her.
