An alphabetical list of celebrities who support Donald Trump

Kirstie Alley

What she’s famous for: a sitcom about alcohol abuse, a series of movies about talking babies

What she said about Trump: “I want someone that will rev us up and make us pay attention. Donald Trump, whether you like him or you don’t like him, is waking this country up. And I think that’s a really great step with this country because I think this country’s gotten very complacent.”

Tom Brady

What he’s famous for: deflating footballs, losing to Eli Manning

What he said about Trump, in response to a reporter asking whether he thought Trump could win the election: “I hope so. That’d be great. There’d be a putting green on the White House lawn, I’m sure of that.” (Brady later backpedaled when he realized how controversial the endorsement was, noting that “Donald is a good friend of mine” and “I support all my friends” and that he would prefer to “stay out of this debate,” as he doesn’t “even know what the issues are,” having not “paid attention to politics in a long time.”)

Gary Busey

What he’s famous for: dramatic eye sockets, crazed grin

What he said about Trump: “I know him personally. I know him professionally. He’s a great guy. He’s sharp. He’s fast. He can change the country after the last eight years.”

Mark Cuban

What he’s famous for: watching Dirk Nowitzki play basketball

What he wrote about Trump: “I don’t care what his actual positions are. I don’t care if he says the wrong thing. He says what’s on his mind. He gives honest answers rather than prepared answers. This is more important than anything any candidate has done in years. He has changed the game and for that he deserves a lot of credit.”

Lou Ferrigno

What he’s famous for: busting shirts, “Sharknado 3”

What he said about Trump: “I wish Donald the best. He’s a fabulous guy. I hope he goes all the way. He cares about our country, keeping our country safe. That’s what it all comes down to.”

Jesse James

What he’s famous for: cheating on Sandra Bullock

What he wrote about Trump: “He is a pretty honest regular guy. I think the majority of the haters hate him because he is successful. I would way rather have somebody that works hard and steps on some toes and gets [expletive] done. Then [sic] some Clown that is friends with Jay-Z or plays sax on the Arcinio [sic] Hall show. We need somebody that actually works hard for us.”

Loretta Lynn

What she’s famous for: legendary country music artist

What she said about Trump: “Trump has sold me. What more can I say? I just think he’s the only one who’s going to turn this country around.”

Wayne Newton

What he’s famous for: physical embodiment of traditional show-biz cheesiness, “Vegas Vacation” (1997) antagonist

What he said about Trump: “Number one, he tells the truth. Number two, he’s been where most of these guys want to be, in terms of riding on his own plane. He doesn’t have to worry about what hotels he stays in, he doesn’t have to worry about how his family gets to Hawaii, so on and so forth.”

Ted Nugent

What he’s famous for: platinum-selling musician, rightwing caricature

What he wrote about Trump: “Donald Trump should be given the Medal of Freedom for speaking his mind in such a bold, honest and straight-forward manner. And for the record, I dare anybody to show me one word from Trump that isn’t accurate.”

Dennis Rodman

What he’s famous for: elite defense and rebounding, beautiful friendship with Kim Jong-un

What he wrote about Trump: “We don’t need another politician, we need a businessman like Mr. Trump!”

Tila Tequila

What she’s famous for: nobody’s really sure

What she said about Trump: “I’m a huge Donald Trump supporter, and so should you. I definitely think that he should definitely be our new president because, as you all know, I’m very anti-vax, and Donald Trump is also anti-vax. They’ve proven that vaccines causes 240 percent of black boys to have autism.”

Mike Tyson

What he’s famous for: “Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!”, “The Hangover,” face tattoo

What he said about Trump: “I’m a black [expletive] from the poorest town in the country. I’ve been through a lot in life. And I know him. When I see him, he shakes my hand and respects my family. None of them—Barack, whoever—nobody else does that. They’re gonna be who they are and disregard me, my family. So I’m voting for him. If I can get 20,000 people or more to vote for him, I’m gonna do it.”

I have been to the new Yankee Stadium once. Obviously, since I still call it the “new” Yankee Stadium even though it’s over a decade old.
