Award-winning conservative actor Jon Voight was in attendance for President Donald Trump's "Salute to America" celebration on Independence Day, and it appears he put himself to work for some other honored guests.

What are the details?

A video posted Monday has gone viral showing Voight — with a roll of paper towels in hand — drying off rain-soaked seats reportedly intended for Gold Star families.

The clip was shared on Twitter by Team Trump staffer Mike Hahn, who wrote, "While Hollywood elites protested President @realDonaldTrump's "Salute to America" on July 4th...Here's a video of John [sic] Voight cleaning the rain off seats for Gold Star families. This is what it's all about!"

According to BizPacReview, Voight was aware ahead of time that the mothers of service members lost in combat would be in attendance. Days before the event, the actor said, "There's no greater honor than to stand with these moms who have lost their loved ones who sacrificed for our country, for our freedoms, and who love and honor and respect our nation."

Anything else?

Voight has been an ardent supporter of President Trump, and spoke at his inauguration. On Tuesday, the Academy Award and Golden Globe winner released a video telling his fellow Americans, "Our nation is stronger, and wiser, because we have taken a chance on a man who has become the greatest president."
