Attention D-list celebrities. If you endorse Donald Trump, you’ll get oodles of air time on Fox News and/or Fox Business.
Yesterday, Fox Business’ Risk & Reward with Deirdre Bolton show featured D-lister Robert Davi to discuss D-lister Scott Baio’s endorsement of Trump. Keep in mind this is the show FBN promises “takes you beyond stocks and bonds into the world of alternative investing. [Bolton] brings viewers new ways to make money and better ways to keep it.”
The segment began with a pre-recorded clip of Baio, discussing in a previous Risk & Reward show, his support for Trump. Baio’s clip included such “business-like” comments as “The Constitution is not a suicide pact.” And, “These people (ISIS) are coming west and we seem to be playing footsie with them.”
Bolton followed up with, “Baio among the growing list of celebrities throwing his support behind Donald Trump. So, he may be rare in Hollywood, he’s not alone, though. Kid Rock, Jon Voight, Willie Robertson all share his opinion on what is best for America.” Their photos appeared on the screen as she spoke, along with those of Ted Nugent, Antonio Sabato, Jr., and Robert Davi.
As a special treat, we got “actor/singer” Davi in person to follow up.
Bolton's first question was the hard-hitting, “Why is Trump best suited, in your view, even more capable than, say, Senator Cruz or Ohio Governor John Kasich?”
You could bank on the buzzwords in Davi's answer: “Strong leader… immigration and radical Islam…”
Davi did actually wade into the weeds with some policy prescriptions, which Bolton never probed or challenged. She did, however, interject at one point, “Some people say the Egyptian president is stronger on this [“radical Islam”] than President Obama. It sounds like that’s what you think, too.”
Bolton closed the interview by saying that Trump uses “what some took to be more offensive language but I hear what you’re saying: He’s addressing the issues where they need to be addressed.”
Then she thanked Davi for going to Washington, D.C. and added, “Actor and Trump supporter and contributing to big thinking on how to fight terrorism.”
And that concluded this edition of D-list Celebs For Trump.
Watch it below, from the March 28 Risk & Reward show on the Trump Fox Business Network.
Whewww!!! That’s all the snark for today. I’m bushed!
