President Obama is Coming Between Angelina Jolie & Her Dad
Angie’s reconciliation with her dad hit the skids when talk turned to politics
There’s an old saying that you should never discuss sex, politics or religion if you want to avoid an argument. Unfortunately Angelina Jolie seems to be ignoring that wise adage.
After years of not talking to her dad, Jon Voight, the actress recently called her father (at her partner Brad Pitt‘s urging), but her peace-making mission was derailed when the talk turned to President Obama.
Angelina hasn’t seen her dad since he claimed to Access Hollywood back in 2002 that she had “serious mental problems,” but Brad – who enjoys a close relationship with his parents, Bill and Jane – has been urging Angie to make peace with Jon, so that he can meet their six kids.
“Angelina is always coming up with excuses not to get in touch with her father, and never follows through when Brad asks her to call him,” an insider tells BettyConfidential.com. “This time, she agreed to phone him. But no sooner did the conversation get started than it came to a halt when they started talking about politics.”
Angelina and Brad are liberal-minded supporters of President Obama, while Jon, 70, is an outspoken conservative, who back in June railed against the president at a GOP fundraiser, calling him “weak,” and last week told the Washington Times that President Obama was “creating a civil war in our own country.”
“Angelina told her father that he and others like him shouldn’t be shooting down the president’s agenda publicly,” the insider says. “Jon laughed and told Angelina, ‘I don’t like or trust the guy and I have no clout. He’s destroying his chances on his own.’ “
