Video of Jon Voight Drying Chairs for Gold Star Families Goes Viral - WATCH
Actor seen wiping down wet chairs at Trump’s July 4th 'Salute to America' celebration
Patriotic actor Jon Voight was unknowingly filmed wiping down wet chairs for Gold Star families on the Fourth of July during President Trump's "Salute to America" celebration, with video of the gesture quickly going viral.
The clip of the award-winning star drying off seats was posted online on Monday by Michael Hahn and rapidly spread across social media.
A Gold Star family is the relatives of members of the United States military who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom during battle.
“While Hollywood Elites protested President @realDonaldTrump’s ‘Salute to America’ on July 4th,” Hahn said in the caption.
“Here’s a video of John Voight cleaning the rain off seats for Gold Star families.”
“This is what it’s all about!” the “Team Trump” social media guru added.

According to the Daily Wire, Voight has been one of the few voices in Hollywood to praise the president.
In May, for example, the Academy Award winner posted a viral video to his Twitter account declaring Trump “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.”
The "Ray Donovan" actor was an early backer of candidate Trump, too, and has been a fierce defender ever since.
“He spoke several times at various events during Mr. Trump's inauguration, including during the inauguration concert, during which he declared, ‘God answered our prayers,’” The Daily Wire noted.
In fact, on Tuesday, Voight posted another video similar in flavor: “Our nation is stronger and wiser because we have taken a chance on a man who has become the greatest president. I’m honored to call him President Trump,” he told his followers.
“My fellow Americans, I stand with you and the truth of our nation, with great pride and honor,” said Voight, as reported by Yahoo.
"I say this truly from a place of God’s truths.
"Our nation is stronger and wiser because we have taken a chance on a man who has become the greatest president.
"I’m honored to call him President Trump."
“And as we come closer to 2020, let us track all the magnificent documentations that have been signed, sealed and delivered to this country and its glory.
"We must continue this race of truths and stand with President Trump for his next win.
"Because this is more than win; this is not a sacrifice. This is God’s honor, God’s trust for this nation.
"For this land of liberty. For justice for all,” he continued.
“This is America, this land of the free,” added the actor.
“This is our president, Donald Trump, that will set the nation to be the greatest land of peace and love ... and great again. God bless.”

Twitter users were pleased with Mr. Voight's gesture, replying to the video, “More class than 90% of Hollywood elites,” and, “He is a humble man. Hat off for him.”
Another Twitter user wrote, “Great work Johhny! Couldn't you also see other Hollywood actors like Johnny Depp & Leonardo DiCaprio do this? Neither could I.”
“Way to go Jon Voight! Finally a decent and caring for his Fellow Man celebrity. U have better odds of winning the lottery than finding another one,” said one woman.
