Using Their Celebrity To Endorse Trump - Kristy Swanson, Dean Cain, Scott Baio & Isaiah Washington
Former Lois and Clark actor Dean Cain, gave his perspective: “There’s no compassion. They’re so hypocritical, it’s unreal. They just don’t like the man.”
Actress Kristy Swanson asked, “Why is it not OK in Hollywood to be a conservative?”
The Buffy the Vampire Slayer star said she hopes for change.
“I feel that it’s time to set the example of let’s just all get along, ya know?” she said. “We can learn from each other. We don’t have to hate each other.”
When it was Charles in Charge star Baio’s turn, he was much less conciliatory: “If you’re not hiring me because I’m a conservative, shame on you. If there’s a civil war, then don’t forget who has all the guns.”
He also lamented, “It bothers me that people won’t speak to me, because I’m a Trump guy.”
Isaiah Washington offered a theory on why the entertainment industry opposes Trump, who starred in the reality competition The Apprentice for more than a decade. “So what I’ve seen with the media, who is notorious for having a nasty, dirty, low-life Hollyweird behavior, attack this man because he’s the president, I begin to put it together: Ah, he knows their secrets. I would be a little nervous too,” the former Grey’s Anatomy actor said.
Also speaking out Ted Nugent, Kid Rock, Robert Davi,

Swanson is a disgusting homophobe and Trump cult follower with a Twitter feed to match. Yesterday she said that Mayor Pete suffers from PMS. She has had trouble finding work because she can’t act.

More hypocrisy from the right. Whatever happened to “shut up and act”? People whining because they’re in the minority when they exhibit no empathy for minorities. Conservatives love to label Hollywood as liberal, but it’s OK for Nashville to be conservative because they’re real Americans.
|by Anonymous||reply 7||10/15/2020|
There is a tradition of real conservatives in Hollywood— remember Ronald Reagan? Jimmy Stewart? Charlton Heston? Also being conservative hasn’t held back Kelsey Grammar, Clint Eastwood among others—so maybe Chachi and friends need to figure out what else makes them pariahs.

Years ago when Dean Cain first spoke out about being a conservative, it was obvious he had he brain of a high school graduate who graduated with a "C" average.
He completely lacked the ability to make cogent points or to make an argument for his philosophy, and his shtick basically consisted of saying that conservatives have a right to their opinions.
When you're incapable of debating the other side, you're outing yourself as an complete idiot.

It must be such a bummer for them to realize something: Given the opportunity to have dinner with any of them vs. Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, G.Clooney and any number of hardcore LIBERAL celebs, who do they think Trump would choose?

Hey, Scott Biao, if you support a criminally corrupt pathologically lying con-man and fraud who is a straight-up fascist authoritarian endorsed by neo-nazis, the KKK, and the Taliban, and who is a defacto White Supremacist, you don't get to whine that people won't speak to you. You fucking dumbass.

Isaiah Washington's gotta be the dumbest person alive; they're attacking Trump because "he knows their secrets"?! If someone knew my dirty secrets I'd be bribing and kissing that person's butt, not attacking him and trying to make him even angrier.

Well that's horseshit. they are American citizens and entitled to speak but they have to live with the consequences. I never hear Trumpsters actually saying why they support him so it has to be the racist element though I will never know why a black man would support a White Supremacist. Let them speak and make fools of themselves.

R47 - he was a football recruit. They have lower standards for football players - seriously - albeit higher than other schools. There are some really average minds on Ivy League football and basketball teams - not so much with other sports - but those two are known to have the dummies.
Plus he was raised in Malibu - I would think his wealthy family had some connections somewhere.

Are they bad at math? Supporting Trump = perceived as a hateful bigot = unlikely to get work in a liberal minded town. Instead, they think this way: Supporting Trump = victim of discrimination for expressing the way I think = Hollywood is unfair. Hard to comprehend how people can't see that being perceived as a hateful bigot will have negative consequences.

Antonio Sabato Jr. is my favorite when it comes to his claims of being "blacklisted." Did someone not notify him that over-the-hill underwear models aren't being sought after to star in "The Revenant"?
Jon Voight -who could drop dead for all I care- is a hardcore whackjob Deplorable and he WORKS to this day because he's a good actor.
All of these fools haven't worked even before Trump and frankly, you're not entitled to work in Hollywood when there are tons of washed up liberals who also no longer work. Are they fucking kidding me trying to blame being deplorables for their the lack of calls from studios looking to hire them rather than never having ever been considered great actors to begin with and being older.
Talk about living in a bubble.

Actually I'm going to have to disagree - Trump IS the Republican party in its naked form. This IS who they are, it's just not hidden in dog whistles and wordplay.
Republicans stopped being respectful, honorable, and trustworthy decades ago.
And they STILL vote in lockstep for Trump.
Do not excuse it away saying that conservatives and Republicans are not Trump - yes, yes they are. Maybe not in its current form, but all the beliefs, ideas and dishonesty is actually what they are fully about.

You don't "earn" the right to use "faggot" or "nigger" or "spic" or "chink" or any other derogatory term when someone else uses it towards you - only trash like yourself who I don't doubt uses racial epithets, would think that's how you respond to bigotry. And I'm sure if a gay person did use a derogatory term, your response would not be "The other person has the right to use 'faggot' in response."
You have such a shitty mentally and you lack introspection. Unfortunately, there's a lot of that around here.
