Trump Dings Clinton For Parade Of ‘Not Very Hot’ Celeb Supporters

Donald Trump said the most energized supporters of Hillary Clinton’s campaign are celebrities “who aren’t very hot anymore” in an off-script dig at a Wednesday rally in Tampa, Florida.

“The only people enthusiastic about her campaign are Hollywood celebrities, in many cases celebrities who aren’t very hot anymore,” Trump told the crowd.

The GOP nominee himself promised an A-list, showbiz-ready Republican National Convention this summer. He managed to deliver Scott Baio, the actor best known for his 1980s sitcom work, multiple former daytime soap opera stars, and the patriarch of the family from “Duck Dynasty.” The Academy Award winner Jon Voight also backs Trump.

Among the not “very hot” celebrities supporting Clinton are Beyonce, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Kerry Washington and George Clooney.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
