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.
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.
