As the 2016 election approaches, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump is receiving a growing number of celebrity endorsements. Support from celebrities is a major plus for any political candidate who wants to widen his audience fan base. From actors to sports stars, even Trump’s ex-wife, Ivana, the rich and the famous are beginning to hitch their wagons behind good old Donald. But then again, when you look at it, are they really standing by him or is it dog and pony showcasing?
Familiar faces that were fired from past seasons of “The Celebrity Apprentice” are vouching for Trump. Among them, Stephen Baldwin, Lou Ferrigno, and Gary Busey are all endorsing Trump. Are they real supporting him or is it only because they were on his show? Retired NLF wide receiver Terrell Owens is another advocator for Donald taking the Oval Office. But its not like we’re checking for Terrell anymore anyways. He needs the publicity. On the basketball side, Dennis Rodman, fired from season 2 of “Celebrity Apprentice” and a close friend to both Trump and Kim Jong Un, is publically pro-Trump. We’re definitely not checking for Dennis’ whereabouts! Talk about conflicts of interest!
Other celebrities are taking their support for Donald to the next level. Last October, Tila Tequila posted a Youtube video titled “Tila Tequila for Donald Trump 2016!” Musican Ted Nugent wrote an article for WorldNetDaily where he argued that Trump, “should be given the Medal of Freedom for speaking his mind in such a bold, honest, and straightforward manner.” What? Yeah, even though people say dumb sh*t, I defend their right to be able to say it. But its still dumb sh*t.
Both Charlie Sheen and Azealia Banks took to tweeting about Trump. But their support isn’t full fledged. Neither of the two has explicitly voiced actual support. Banks believes Trump, “is evil like America is evil,” so that’s why we need him. I guess she stands by the old adage to catch a thief, hire a thief. But lets not do that on an entire country level, ok guys? Sheen has publically criticized Trump on his Instagram, but has recently tweeted that he wishes he could be Donald’s VP. He even tweeted the hashtag #TrumpSheen16 last month. So does putting them together make two and half men? This whole thing is pure comedy!
