Ron Howard has one question on his mind, and it has nothing to with his latest film, “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” “Honest question to #MAGA minders,” the 64-year-old tweeted Thursday. “ When was America at its greatest ?

There's little left to be said, but Abraham Lincoln's ten sentence missive at Gettysburg is remembered by many as the greatest speech in American political history. It also recently spawned a very cool project in honor of its 150 year anniverary.

Ron Howard has one question on his mind, and it has nothing to with his latest film, “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

“Honest question to #MAGA minders,” the 64-year-old tweeted Thursday. “When was America at its greatest? Can you tell me an era that reflects the ‘Again’ that you hope to return to?”

The Oscar-winning filmmaker and former “Happy Days” actor quickly started a conversation with users who had different opinions of President Trump’s famous slogan.

Picking Another National Anthem Fight Makes Trump Look Like A Loser

  Picking Another National Anthem Fight Makes Trump Look Like A Loser It's simply egotistical for President Trump to even imply the Eagles did something wrong because they 'disagreed' with the president.The debate over the national anthem protests reignited last month when the NFL announced that they will be enforcing a new policy that requires its athletes to stand or face fines. What began with a handful of players (most famously Colin Kaepernick) became a heated political feud between President Trump and the entire NFL when he referred to kneelers as a “son of a b-tch” during a rally last September, causing hundreds of players to kneel during the anthem for the rest of the season.

Share on Twitter . "I was watching the Republican debate , and I threw out a comment that [Rick] Santorum said about 40 percent of births in America last year were by unwed mothers," Ronnie recalls. As for his political affiliation, the 'Cost of Livin'' singer is staying mum.

“Tell me yours Ron, we are about the same age!” one user responded. “Mine is the Ronald Reagan 8 years! Economic growth! Stability! People were happy to talk about GOD in a positive mode! The World hates Christians & GOD! Love killing, especially babies! It’s all about me generation instead of GOD!”

“Any time before Obama,” chimed another.

“I would say prob after WWII” added one user.

“My dad and I have had heated conversations around this,” explained a user. “He believes it’s bringing back manufacturing because everyone has a job and you didn’t need a college degree. Which at least my kids don’t want. They want tiny houses and no debt.”

But some used the open question to criticize the current administration.

“I don’t think this is really much about politics,” tweeted one user. “It’s about a huge cohort of old people who are scared and confused about a changing world, and resentful that privileges they once took for granted seem to be disappearing. Fearmongering media drums this message,”

Ramadan fast sparks debate ahead of World Cup

  Ramadan fast sparks debate ahead of World Cup Shouldtop athletes fast during Ramadan? The question has provoked an often heated debate in Muslim countries, particularly as national teams prepare for the 2018 World Cup. For Egypt, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, and Morocco -- four Muslim-majority countries competing in this year's World Cup in Russia -- the end of the Muslim holy month on Thursday coincides with the tournament's kick-off.Throughout Ramadan, observant Muslims are expected to abstain from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset.The traditional fast has long proved divisive among players, fans, coaches and preachers -- and this year was no different.

“As a director I feel badly when people who I believe (& exit polls show) will very likely enjoy a movie … don’t see it on a big screen w/ great sound,” Howard tweeted. The movie’s director, Ron Howard , addressed the low audience turnout on Twitter over the weekend (“Solo” made just million in its

“I’d like to know that too Ron,” said another. “For all of us outside of America, we’ve been questioning the ‘again’ all along. When was this golden age?”

“So the era of McCarthyism, segregation, limited women’s rights, the growth of the US Military industrial complex, and the repression of the LGTBQ communities,” tweeted a user. “Exactly. Trumper’s want to return to the decade of unchecked straight, white, male power.”

Out of all the responses Howard received, he retweeted one comment that read, “I know personally I had more money under bill Clinton then any other president.”

Howard pointed out the opinion about post-WWII.

“I always assume that, too,” he explained. “A time when most other economies were in a shattered state, so our dominance was clear and there was little global market competition. Taxes were high (90% top bracket) so there was infrastructure money to work with and the war economy continued.”

This isn’t the first time Howard has spoken out about Trump. After the 2017 Golden Globes where Meryl Streep delivered a speech that condemned the president, Trump took to Twitter and characterized her as an “over-rated actress.”

Soon after Howard addressed Trump’s comment on Twitter.

“Trump was a reality tv star spouting criticisms of a president & reinforcing the Birther Lie,” he tweeted. “but now celebs should b muzzled? Trump takes the bait & calls #MerylStreep overrated?! Please Pres-Elect. Don’t make this into the WWF which is fun but not presidential. Trump used his fame to speak out on issues years before he ran 4 office. Why was he allowed & Ms Streep should keep quiet. No hypocrisy pls.”

Howard says he wants to go somewhere where he can help a team win. But is there a market for his services? After the Charlotte Hornets traded Dwight Howard to Brooklyn one day before the 2018 NBA Draft, the former All-Star center Dwight Howard doesn’t even want to board the plane.
