Anthony Mackie has the Internet abuzz after revealing whom he is endorsing for president..hypothetically speaking. Find out what he said about supporting Donald Trump for president inside…
Anthony Mackie sent out a tweet confirming he does NOT endorse Donald Trump and that it was merely a bad joke:
Well there you have it.
Anthony Mackie is no stranger to controversial topics in the media. Remember when he said black men wearing "locks" led to racial profiling? Yeah, well now he’s raising eyebrows with his presidential endorsement.
The Captain America star sat down with BET recently to promote his upcoming film Our Brand Is Crisis, a drama flick about politics in Bolivia.
When asked if he had to choose between running Hilary Clinton’s campaign or Donald Trump’s campaign, he said he would 100% choose Trump over Clinton. His reason? He claims Trump is an easy sell because “you can sell him as the guy who worked his way up from nothing.” Hmm… did Anthony know that Donald’s father Fred Trump was a real estate developer and reportedly left Donald $300 million when he died? Hardly "working his way up from nothing." Plus....Hilary's family was not upper class by any means.
Back to the interview...
Anthony revealed his endorsement saying,
"I would 100 percent want to run Trump's campaign. 100 percent," he said. "I mean, first that'll be the best party ever when he won, and second, Trump's an easy sell... When you look at Trump, he's an easy sell because you can sell him as the guy who worked his way up from nothing. And I think if you're a 'pull yourself up by your bootstraps' candidate, people would identify with that."
So does this mean Mr. Mackie will be putting in a vote for Trump if he makes the ballot? He said,
"I'm on the bandwagon," he said. "I'm drinking the Kool-Aid!"
Yes, he seriously said this. Check it below:
