“Jon and I made an agreement years ago to just never talk about politics,” Schreiber said. “It’s just something that we don’t want in the workspace. We don’t want that. Our jobs are difficult enough as they are without all the other nonsense coming into it. So, for that brief time that we’re working together, we just don’t do it.”
He added, “I love Jon. I would do anything for him.”
Schreiber, who is an outspoken liberal, has on occasion addressed Voight’s conservative politics and support for Donald Trump, including a 2016 conversation on Twitter.
Thankfully they are not running for president.
