Tim Allen Plans to 'Drill' Hillary Clinton Next Season on 'Last Man Standing'
By Alex Ungerman
Is it election time already?
Not quite, but that's not stopping politics from seeping into all of our media. For instance, Tim Allen revealed at the Summer TCA press tour that he will be going after Hillary Clinton this season on Last Man Standing, his ABC family comedy where he plays a marketing executive at a sporting goods store.
"We're going to drill Hillary," the 62-year-old conservative actor told FOX411, promising to make fun of the Democratic presidential hopeful. "It will be horrible personally if Hillary continued [to lead the Democrats], but it will be great for the story line if she continues."
While primetime TV is typically not the place you see hardline political topics discussed, Allen does often use his character on the show to promote family values, and conservative ideals -- though rarely past overly tread talking points, such as admitting he likes "blaming" Clinton for things, or remarking that President Barack Obama is from Kenya, as his character did in the season two premiere.
It's likely Allen will stick to that territory in the coming season, seeing as ABC has had problems with his political humor in the past. In 2012, the network cut a joke where Allen called the president a "communist" from the final broadcast.
Despite his right-leaning political views however, Allen is also not about Republican presidential hopeful, Donald Trump.
"I sat with a group of liberal Jewish guys who said, 'When Trump starts to make sense, we know the world is upside down,'" Allen said, jokingly adding "Until I see what's under that hair, I can't really support him."
Of course, while Allen is not worried about getting political, the actor confessed to ET on-set in January that when it came to doing a reunion on his show with his Home Improvement wife, Patricia Richardson, he was a little hesitant at first.
"I thought it was kind of forward of us to ask [Patricia] to do this," Allen said. "This business is promotional so it seemed kind of cheesy."
