Clint Eastwood is clearly not going "any which way but loose" in his political beliefs, backing Donald Trump and slamming the real estate mogul's critics in a new interview with Esquire magazine.

The Oscar winner said Trump is “onto something, because secretly everybody's getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That's the kiss-ass generation we're in right now."

The actor, who once portrayed a racist codger in the 2008 film Gran Torino, also said that people need to “just f***ing get over” the GOP presidential candidates racist remarks.

“But everybody — the press and everybody's going, 'Oh, well, that's racist,' and they're making a big hoodoo out of it. Just f***ing get over it. It's a sad time in history,” Eastwood said.

The Fistful of Dollars star said: "We're really in a p***y generation. Everybody's walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren't called racist.

“All these people that say, 'Oh, you can't do that, and you can't do this, and you can't say that.' I guess it's just the times... What Trump is onto is he's just saying what's on his mind. And sometimes it's not so good. And sometimes it's… I mean, I can understand where he's coming from, but I don't always agree with it."

The famed actor, who served as the mayor of Carmel, California, in the 80s, hasn’t publically endorsed Trump. However, between the billionaire and Hillary Clinton, Eastwood said he would vote for Trump.

The Pale Rider actor said: “She’s declared that she's gonna follow in Obama's footsteps. There's been just too much funny business on both sides of the aisle. She's made a lot of dough out of being a politician. I gave up dough to be a politician. I'm sure that Ronald Reagan gave up dough to be a politician.”

Eastwood, an outspoken Republican, turned heads four years ago at the RNC when he spoke to an empty chair during his keynote address. The actor claimed it was to symbolize Obama’s empty presidency.
