When I saw that Jon Voight was the top-trending name on Twitter in Vancouver, my first thought was "the poor old guy died".
Midnight Cowboy, a.k.a. Angelina Jolie's daddy, reached the top spot for an entirely different reason.
It was for distributing a video claiming that Donald Trump was the best American president since Abraham Lincoln. With a flourish, he ended his comments with "God Bless America."
You can see Voight's comments below.
All of this is eliciting gaffaws, outrage, and even some support across America as it's lit up the Twittersphere.
