Clint Eastwood

We Haven't Had a Great

President Since Truman!!

2/20/2012 6:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Clint Eastwood tells TMZ ... he hasn't been impressed with an American president in quite a while ... dating all the way back to one Harry S. Truman.

Eastwood was leaving the Beverly Wilshire hotel this weekend -- where Obama stays when he's in town -- when we asked the Hollywood legend to pick his favorite U.S. president of all time.

Clint said he was a big fan of Washington and Lincoln and then asked, "You mean in our life time?"

Eastwood then explained, "I think Truman because he got mad at the people who bum wrapped his daughter."

But then Clint dropped the DISS -- saying, "We haven't seen one for a while."

So, we gotta ask ...

There was an economic boom during the Clinton years. What's the matter Clint, did you sleep through Clinton's presidency?

What took the luster off Clinton's work was the speed in which Bush 43 blew a hole the economy in one year.

I would beg to differ, Regan was a great president. Iran Contra was not him, did he know about it; probably not, he had dementia and it usually begins and is covered up for a long time before diagnosis.

Any father would be angered by his daughter being "bum wrapped".

I think history tends to wash away some of the lackluster performance of any President. He was a member of the KKK and a bit of a racist in his youth, granted he overcame that...but still...a member of the KKK.

that would be "Bum Rapped". I don't think that anyone tried to put clothes on her butt. BTW, Truman's daughter Bess was on a TV show singing(badly)and a critic had the nerve to say she was terrible. The President of the US said if he ever ran into that critic, he would "punch him in the nose". I have no doubt he would have. They don't make 'em like Harry anymore.

Oh Michelle, you realize you just said that a senile old man was a great President. DO you realize he once mistook a black member of the joint chiefs of staff for waiter? That he would tell WW II stories of bravery by soldiers when in reality he was retelling the plots of movies in was in? He didn't do these while out of office, he did these things while he was President.

From Reagan to now, every president has been a Wall Street plutocrat stooge!
