    Edit by LYKUNO 10-26-20 10PM EST ... Oops, I shoulda fact checked the following post, but let it fly without doing due diligence. Anyway, it turns out that Snopes (those bastions of truth) had investigated the content below back in 2014, when it was purportedly written by Clint about Obama. They rated it "False" at that time. (See the Snopes findings here {<link} if you're interested.) I'll try to avoid such misrepresentations in the future! Honest!

    Mr. Eastwood has always had a way with words..............
    ...even though his below comments are unusually thoughtful, reflective, & cultured!
    Preparing to say goodbye... a message from Clint Eastwood
    My Twilight Years at 90.
    If you realize each day is a gift, you may be near my age. As I enjoy my twilight years, I am often struck by the inevitability that the party must end.
    There will come a clear, cold morning when there isn't any "more."
    No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat.

    It seems to me that one of the important things to do before that morning comes, is to let everyone of your family and friends know that you care for them by finding simple ways to let them know your heartfelt beliefs and the guiding principles of your life so they can always say, "He was my friend, and I know where he stood."

    So, just in case I'm gone tomorrow, please know this: I voted against, Biden, that incompetent, lying, flip-flopping, insincere, double-talking, radical socialist, terrorist excusing, bleeding heart, narcissistic, scientific and economic moron that spent eight years-in the White House with Obama trying to destroy our wonderful country and turn it into Muslim loving, socialist crap hole like he came from and I don't mean Hawaii!
    Participating in a gun buy-back program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbors have too many kids.

    Regards, Clint

    I find it hard to believe that Clint is 90. I just watched him on Saturday on "Maverick" and "Rawhide" and he didn't look over 25. Damn, time is flying by....

    i also watch those tv shows, and also, Highway Patrol, starring Broderick Crawford. Clint was a biker in an episode, that got a townsman all worked up, just cuz he rode motorbikes.

    tall, lean he was back then

    then again, many of us were lean, and maybe a bit shorter than Clint..lol

    Mr. Clint Eastwood never said this about Biden. A similar false claim (verbatim) was reportedly issued by Mr. Eastwood to former President Obama and that was false. In 2012, Eastwood did say that former President Barack Obama was "the greatest hoax ever perpetuated on the American people." But couldn’t find any evidence that he penned the sentiments that appear in the Facebook post.

    I'm not playing fact checker here...but I have too much respect for Mr. Eastwood to use his name as the one who said this even though I would whole heartedly agree with him but that's my point of view of Biden and we all know that amounts to less than $0.02.

    I have serious doubts about that alleged quote.
