30 celebrities who love and endorse Donald Trump

One of the most unforgettable political moments of 2012 happened at the Republican National Convention, and it wasn’t because of a politician – it was because of a celebrity.

No one can forget Clint Eastwood’s odd ramblings to an empty chair, dubbed “Invisible Obama.”

This time around, the GOP has a different assortment of celebrities to bolster its presumptive presidential nominee, Donald Trump. Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr. spoke Monday night, and several other reality TV stars are scheduled to appear.

Trump has found support among many celebrities, in addition to politicians and pundits – like Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter – though many aren’t necessarily making their way to Cleveland this week for the RNC. Fox News reports that Kid Rock and Mark McGrath are all scheduled to play, but it’s unclear which other famous faces will be seen.

Here are 30 celebrities and entertainment figures, from Mike Tyson to Kirstie Alley, who are showing their support for Trump, whether in Cleveland or elsewhere:

The “Happy Days” and “Joanie Loves Chachi” star has previously said he likes how Trumps communicates. (“He speaks like I speak,” he told FoxNews’ Judge Jeanine Pirro.) Baio is also one of the few celebrities who’s on the docket to speak at this year’s RNC.

In his speech on the convention’s opening day, Baio said, “We need Donald Trump to fix this. Is Donald Trump a messiah? No, he’s just a man, a man who wants to give back to his country, America, the country that has given him everything.

“Hillary Clinton wants to be president for Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump wants to be president for all of us,” he added. “So, of course, let’s make America great again, but let’s make America,Americaagain.”

The reality TV star and former Calvin Klein model also spoke at the RNC on Monday night. “Trump is for unity,” Sabato Jr. said in his speech.

“Donald Trump belives in one America with liberty and justice for all,” he continued. “Having secure borders, protecting our citizens – none of this is hateful. This is the responsibility of the government, and it’s the right thing to do. Donald Trump will get it done and put us back on the right track.”


Omarosa Manigault

Anyone surprised? One of the most famous “Apprentice” alums is not only a supporter of her former reality-show host, but she has also been named Trump’s director of African-American outreach.

“Donald Trump really has an incredible vision for this country,” she told MSNBC in the same interview that revealed her title change.

Omarosa has also been vocal in defending Trump’s stance on women.

She told CNN, “Donald Trump does not have a woman problem… Yes, he’s said things off the cuff, but to take them and use them and try to apply them to all women, just because he doesn’t like Rosie O’Donnell, doesn’t mean he hates all women.”


Stacey Dash

The “Clueless” star vocalizes her Trump support on Twitter, saying the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando “would not go unanswered under President Trump I promise!!” She also tweeted a photo of herself in front of the White House and said she’d help Trump “take out the squatters … Bronx style.”

Dash also gave financial support to the Great America PAC, a super PAC that says it’s the leading outside group supporting Trump.


Gene Simmons

The Kiss member told Rolling Stone that Trump is “good for the political system.”

He supported Trump’s infamous idea to build a wall, saying, “The Pope has said the wall is unkind, but it’s interesting that at the Vatican there’s a wall. They don’t want people on the outside coming into the Vatican.”

Though the article largely shows Simmons displaying his approval of Trump, toward the end, Simmons makes his support a little less clear: “Trump is not a politician. He does not need your money, and he will speak his mind, God damn it, whether you like it or not. And he has no problem saying, ‘F— off.’ I like that. Even if I disagree.”


John Ratzenberger

The “Cheers” and “Toy Story” star announced his support for Trump on FoxNews.

“I want us to become self-reliant again… The only candidate out there is Donald Trump, for me, because he’s a builder,” he said. “He understands better than anybody that if we lose the people – average age is 58 years old by the way of people that actually know how to build things – once they’re gone, they’re gone and we don’t have anybody comin’ up behind them.”

The star of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” went on “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen to say “of course” she was going to vote for Trump. “I think he’s amazing. I think he’ll make a great president,” she said.

Giudice is also a former contestant on Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice.”

The ex-Superman initially told The Hollywood Reporter that he was “not a Trump guy,” and instead opted for Ted Cruz. However, once Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee, his hand was forced.

“I’m not voting for Bernie Sanders and I’m not voting for Hillary Clinton, so I guess that makes me a Trump guy,” he told “Fox & Friends.”

In a statement to Breitbart, the actor said that he is supporting Donald Trump because “he’s an answer to our problems.” He also called Trump “funny, playful, and colorful, but most of all, he is honest.”

He added:

There are many Republicans fighting to keep him from winning the Republican nomination. You know why? Because he has no bull to sell, and everyone will discover the bull most politicians spew out is for their own causes and benefits. I pray all Americans who have seen and felt the meltdown of America with the Obama years, to please fight for Donald Trump.

Alley hasn’t fully endorsed a presidential candidate yet, but in September, she tweeted that she liked Trump after disagreeing with the way “60 Minutes'” Scott Pelley was interviewing the candidate.

In January, she told Fox Business that she wants “someone that will rev us up and make us pay attention. Donald Trump, whether you like him or don’t, he’s waking this country up.”

The rapper tweeted at the beginning of February to voice her support for Trump because she has “no hope for America.” But she does say that “Trump is evil like America is evil and in order for America to keep up with itself it needs him.” So her endorsement is not exactly positive.

James, a TV personality and founder of West Coast Choppers, posted a lengthy Facebook message in January supporting his former “Celebrity Apprentice” boss.

He said:

Ive met a lot of people in life and I have found it best to form opinions about them by actually meeting them in person. … What I personally observed is a man that is perfect suited to run this country. … One thing you know about me is Good or bad I will always tell it like it is. This guy is the Real Deal, and will Make America Great Again.

The former heavyweight-boxing champion announced that he would endorse Trump while appearing on HuffPost Live in October 2015. “He should be president of the United States,” Tyson said.

As for what Trump has said about immigration, Tyson said that the words were “crude” and someone could work with him on the delivery of his message.


Stephen Baldwin

Baldwin, who was fired by Trump on two different seasons of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” said during an interview with Don Lemon on an episode of “CNN Tonight” that Trump would make a “great” president “because he’s not a politician, and he doesn’t care what anybody thinks.”
