Michael Moore Still Seeking Attention for Clint Eastwood’s 10 Year Old Comments That He Would “Kill” Him if He Ever Showed Up at His House With a Camera …. Well Michael Moore, Do You Feel Lucky?
GO AHEAD MICHAEL MOORE, MAKE OUR DAY …
Liberal film maker Michael Moore is still trying to make mileage off something that Clint Eastwood said to him 10 years ago. The comments, supposedly made in jest at the National Board of Review awards dinner when Clint Eastwood allegedly told filmmaker Michael Moore he would “kill” him if he ever showed up at his house with a camera. However, Moore seems to have taken the threat somewhat serious to this day. Note to Michael Moore, you are still around making ridiculous, ignorant comments so you must have heeded Clint’s warning. By the way, Clint did not threaten you, he warned you that if you ever showed up at his home with a camera, well punk, do you feel lucky?
Ten years ago this past week, Clint Eastwood stood in front of the National Board of Review awards dinner and announced to me and to the crowd that he would “kill” me if I ever came to his house with my camera for an interview.
“I’ll kill you,” he declared.
The crowd laughed nervously. As for me, having just experienced a half-dozen assaults in the previous year from crazies upset at ‘Fahrenheit 9/11? and my anti-war Oscar speech, plus the attempt by a right wing extremist to blow up my house (he was caught in time and went to prison), I was a bit stunned to hear Eastwood, out of the blue, make such a violent statement. But I instantly decided he was just trying to be funny, so I laughed the same nervous laugh everyone else did. Clint, though, didn’t seem to like all that laughter.
“I mean it,” he barked, and the audience grew more quiet. “I’ll shoot you.”
Hey Michael Moore, how about some cheese with that whine … Maybe Clint East Wood meant he would kill you at the box office?
