His supporters support him because of his ideas on how the country should be run. I don't care if he's a famous celebrity or a nobody who just came out of a duplex apartment in West Virginia.
The fact that other celebrities, especially the Hollywierd type disdain him for the most part is a huge positive.

I wonder if it's because they don't want to damage their brand, don't like No Puppet, or both - I'm guessing both!

Hillary on the other hand has a raft of celebrities that are both endorsing her and on the trail with her. To name just a few:

Oprah
Meryl Streep
Katy Perry
Beyonce
Jay-Z
Bon Jovi
John Legend
America Ferrera
Lena Dunham
Amy Schumer
Lebron James
Stevie Wonder
Robert DeNiro
Kerry Washington
Ellen Degeneres

Guess all the famous and cool people want to be with a winner rather than a loser like Donny!

I've heard bad things about Lena Dunham so I don't know if I'd put her in this list. They could just be stories because as I say I take what I read with a grain of salt but my intuition doesn't know what to think of her.

I agree with you. It'd be pretty much career suicide to be African American and say you support Trump so even if they did they wouldn't admit it.

Considering this, for some it may be because they don't want to damage their brand but the fact that Ellen doesn't support Trump speaks volumes to me. Ellen is very much a people person and I don't think it's fear because Jimmy Fallon had him on his show. She did say she would welcome him on the show if he wanted to be on it but she didn't sound enthused about it. Even better Miley Cyrus already has a terrible reputation so she doesn't care what people think of her but she says she's with Hilary too.

It's very ironic to me. They complain about celebrities but Trump is the worst kind of celebrity.

They're just mad The Donald will take away their cheap nannies and gardeners. They have tens of millions of dollars but don't want to pay a decent wage to a legal immigrant or a citizen.

I'm embarrassed for you. Honestly. Turn off your computer and go watch TMZ.

Who cares about a bunch of Hollywood liberals. But since we are playing that game, here are some Trump supporters:

Kirstie Alley
Kid Rock
Clint Eastwood
Jon Voight
Tom Brady
Scott Baio
Hulk Hogan
Mike Tyson

You fail at this game. That's a small list and only one of them in that list is a woman.

With unemployment at 4.9% and job openings at eight years highs?

I think Trump supporters expect the jobs to fall on their laps.

I can list more if you want. That list was in no way exhaustive. Neither is this one.

Azealia Banks
Stacey Dash
Dennis Rodman
Loretta Lynn
Lou Ferrigno
Jesse James
Terrell Owens
Willie Robertson
Charlie Sheen

Here is one of many sources (Not all of them listed are on this source, but from others)

29 celebrities who support Donald Trump - Business Insider

But I have to wonder how many of these are just hearsay because I noticed sources on your link like the Hollywood Reporter.

Of course the OPs list could be that way too but I've heard more people vocalize that they were against Trump than for him.


I guess it's pretty even assuming these articles are true though. The ones who are written on there to support Trump aren't really surprising either except for Dean Cain but I only know him as Superman so I haven't really studied him.

Beyonce is a feminist herself, which is why her fans are mostly women and millennials. Trump is essentially seen as an existential threat to this specific following. That's why I said if you're a fan of Beyonce, you probably aren't voting for Trump, and if you're a fan of Trump, you're probably not a fan of Beyonce.
