On Sunday night Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight broke down on national television while talking about President Donald Trump. He told Mark Levin of Fox News Channel’s, “Life, Liberty & Levin” that “one of the things we have lost is this compass of God”.

The 79-year-old actor who is a very strong supporter of President Trump broke down while discussing the interaction he shared on a flight with a conservative woman about the 45th President.  

The actor began crying after imitating how the woman placed her hand on her heart when he asked, “So what do you think about our man?” in reference to President Trump.

"The gesture was so beautiful she couldn't even speak she was just saying, 'thank God,' and I said, 'thank God.' And one of the reasons I can say 'thank God' is because I know he's there for us all."

Voight also made a distinction between Kal Marx and America’s founding fathers.

"What did Karl Marx come up with? He eliminated God from the picture."

Voight’s vulnerabilities were further highlighted on the Sunday night show when he publicly said farewell to his friend Burt Reynolds. They both starred in the 1972 movie Deliverance. However in doing this he was more composed than when he spoke about the President.
