Given the current political climate in America, it’s hard to believe there was a time when people were actually feeling optimistic about what goes on in Washington, D.C. But back in 2008, when Barack Obama was elected to become the first black President of the United States, it was a historic and hopeful moment for the country… or at least most of it.
Because while much of Hollywood rallied around him, there are actually a few celebs who have been vocal in their disapproval or disappointment with the POTUS. As he prepares to make his exit from the Oval Office, then, we thought that it would be interesting to take a look at some of the stars who might not be that sad to see him go.
20. Clint Eastwood
Clint Eastwood’s political leanings were made abundantly clear after his rather bizarre appearance at the 2012 Republican National Convention. There, the Dirty Harry star pretended that Obama was an empty seat and then directed his ramblings to it, making it clear as a result how he felt about the president.
19. Victoria Jackson
Comedian Victoria Jackson was once recognized for her hilarious antics on Saturday Night Live, but now she’s best known for her bonkers conservative conspiracy theories. And perhaps most notorious of all is her belief that Obama is a Muslim who “hates America” – an opinion voiced in 2015 during a Newsmax TV broadcast.
