Fox’s “Last Man Standing” star Tim Allen says critics of President Donald Trump should “stop banging on the pilot’s door and trying to pull the guy out of his seat while he’s still flying.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly posted Thursday, Allen acknowledged that even though he’s perceived as a supporter of Trump, he endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich in 2016 -- and added “politically I’m kind of an anarchist.”
“I’ve met [Trump] at the charity event years ago, and that certainly doesn’t fit with the man who tweets,” he said of the president. “I’ve met a lot of people in private whose public persona is a bit off. My perception is ‘let’s see what he gets done.’
“Let’s stop banging on the pilot’s door and trying to pull the guy out of his seat while he’s still flying. You might not like how he’s flying the plane but let’s let him land it.”
He added his opinion of Trump doesn’t matter.
“It’s like a slight of hand with this dude,” he said.
“There’s this smoke and smelly food but over here he just fixed a pothole. The theater of this is fascinating. He doesn’t do it very attractively but you don’t even realize the economy is doing better. Is it? There’s so much drama. Maybe it took this type of guy to get stuff done because it was so stuck in the mud. I’m just watching the theater of it and trying to keep my personal opinions out of it.”
