Robert Redford may be a longtime Democratic supporter, but the actor said he’s “happy” Donald Trump is running for president.

“I’m glad he’s in there because him being the way he is, and saying what he says the way he says it, I think shakes things up and I think that’s very needed,” Redford said in an interview this week. (RELATED: Dennis Rodman Endorses Donald Trump For President)

Redford said the race was looking more “like ‘Looney Tunes’ and not ‘Merrie Melodies.'”

“It’s crazy stuff. It’s like, come on, you guys. You’re making us feel foolish, just having to watch you.” (VIDEO: Salma Hayek Refuses To Say Donald Trump’s Name)
