Harrison Ford: prefers political middle ground

Veteran Hollywood actor Harrison Ford has yet to join the throngs of celebrities endorsing their top 2020 presidential picks, but he has hinted at his political persuasions in a new interview with CBS Sunday Morning.

A few days after calling President Donald Trump a “son of a b***h” during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the 77-year-old star called for a moderate approach.

“I think it’s come to the point where we gotta start talking politics,” Ford told CBS correspondent Lee Cowan, who noted that the Star Wars legend typically refrains from getting political.

“But we gotta talk about it in a positive way. We gotta regain the middle ground. We’re in these ideological enclaves. But the truth is in the middle. Progress is made in the middle.”

When asked if he thinks “we can get back there somehow,” Ford responded, “we damn well better.”

Some celebrities such as Sharon Stone and Kevin Costner have endorsed former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and singer Cardi B is backing Sen. Bernie Sanders.

But Ford has not named a preferred candidate.
