Hollywood legend, Clint Eastwood is still living in the early 1900s...mentally that is

In an interview with Esquire, the famed actor/director/producer came to bat and defend Donald Trump's explicit racism. As if solely backing Trump wasn't enough, Eastwood made a comment about how the concept of racism didn't exist when he grew up

"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," Eastwood said

Clint Eastwood was born in 1930.

He was an adult years before the Civil Rights movement began

Sarah McBride, National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign, wasn't here for Eastwood's "racism isn't a thing" logic. McBride, also the first-ever transgender person to address a national convention,  proceeded to unearth a list of things that weren't considered racist when Clint Eastwood was growing up, exposing the illegitimacy of his argument

And so, the list began:

Wait, there's more. The rest of Twitter participated in the dragging of Clint Eastwood and it was beautiful.

Let's take a moment to appreciate McBride's well-executed scholarly drag.

Having lived in the era of pre-Civil Rights Movement doesn't give anyone an excuse to stay there. How Clint Eastwood has managed to live under a rock all of this time, is a mystery. And if he's seen McBride's tweets, maybe he's just now seeing the light

Welcome to the cookout, Sarah!
