“We are going to drill Hillary,” the out-and-proud Republican declared Monday during a Q&A session on the set of his hit ABC sitcom.
“It will be horrible [for me] personally if Hillary continues [to be the Democratic frontrunner in the 2016 presidential election], but it will be great for the story line.”
“The only thing that stops us, really, is the network. I would dive deep into that if I could.”
It’s no secret that Allen, 62, shares many political views with on screen alter-ego Mike Baxter — an ultra conservative father to three daughters, who some have labeled a modern-day Archie Bunker.
While ratings for the Friday night comedy continue to grow, so have concerns from the Disney-owned broadcaster.
The actor — who also serves as an executive producer — admits he has gotten more than one warning to stop calling President Obama a “communist.”
Supporting the Republican agenda in left-leaning Hollywood is “very challenging,” Allen concedes.
“But there is nothing funnier than liberals eating liberals. The writing staff is all liberal. Sometimes they will come down here and I will even go, ‘I am not going to say that.’”
Allen remains skeptical of headline hoarder Donald Trump: “Until I see what is under that hair, I can’t really [support him],” he jokes, offering his to Ohio governor Kasich:
“I went to see him at an LA town meeting, which is usually a very liberal forum. He talked about poor people and the underprivileged and the working poor. It was very un-Republican. He is a Republican that a Democrat could vote for,” Allen says.
“I think he is a practical guy. He wants to help poor people that need help. Republicans don’t say that enough. Democrats and liberals are very good at formulating a message. Republicans are not very good at that.”
LAST MAN STANDING returns Friday, September 25 on ABC.
