As part of Fox’s relentless parade of B-list (or lower) celebs endorsing Donald Trump, Robert Davi visited Your World last week where he announced that his Persian hairdresser, whose daughter is a doctor with an office of “Persians, Koreans, Hispanics,” are all in for Trump.
The 5+-minute segment purported to be a balance to a brief clip of George Clooney saying, at the Cannes film festival, “There is not going to be a President Donald Trump.”
First, came the requisite knock of liberals and the movie industry. “Cannes is a wonderful festival, I’ve been there many times,” Davi said, “and you can almost call it the progressive, socialist, Marxist, liberal convention of Europe.”
“I heard them all snickering,” host Neil Cavuto replied. “They love to snicker at Trump and all, you can put that in [an] ad, too, the French snickering.”
Davi didn’t just disagree with Clooney, he offered to bet him “$1,000 to his favorite charity” that Trump would win. “And not because of fear mongering, but because of the ineptitude and the lies and the misrepresentation that we find in the current people running for president on the Democratic side.” Predictably, Davi threw in Benghazi later.
Davi argued that unlike “elite” Clooney, “the proletariat” will vote for Trump.
DAVI: I gave an interview yesterday for a major network, Neil, and I said to them, “I bet you the below-the-line people, the cameramen, are going to be for Trump, and most of the above-the-line won’t be.” Well, exactly when I finished, the guys that were running the camera came to me, says, “Hey man, right on! We agree with what you said." And you find that all over the place.
I think it’s going to be a much bigger win than people expect. I just spoke to a hairdresser who’s Persian, my hairdresser. She just got back from Palm Springs, her daughter is a doctor with an office of 40 people, Persians, Koreans, Hispanics. She told me while I was sitting in the chair, they’re all voting for Trump. She said a major hospital in Palm Springs all voting for Trump. She’s going on and on and on about these people.
But If Davi thinks polling people at one hospital or one hair salon indicates a Trump victory, he might want to think again. RealClear Politics’ average of polls has Clinton up by 3.1%. But that includes two polls from the GOP-favoring Rasmussen and Fox News, each of which have a grade of C+ from FiveThirtyEight.com.
