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

August 24, 2016 3:37 p.m.

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.
