We’re all f***ing hypocrites. That’s what I think about it. The policeman who arrested him has never used the word ‘n**ger’ or ‘that f***ing Jew’? I’m being brutally honest here. It’s the hypocrisy of it that drives me crazy.”

Fans of the show threatened to boycott ABC unless they brought the show back, but ABC confirmed that the show was not cancelled for political reasons, saying “Politics had nothing to do with it.” Allen originally supported Ohio Gov. John Kasich for president in 2016, but ultimately voted for Donald Trump, and attended his inauguration in 2017.

When Trump confronted charges of sexual assault, Hilton said Trump’s accusers were “just trying to get attention and get fame.” Hilton’s foray into politics got interesting back in 2008 when presidential hopeful Sen.

After accepting an endorsement from the Wayne family, President Trump said, “John Wayne represented strength. He represented power.

A male and a female. For that reason, they’ll leave their father and mother and cleave to one and other and become one flesh. I know it’s been that way for 7,000 years, but we know best for what’s everyone.'”

4. Cary Grant
Grant was known for his swagger and musical skills, but he was one of the original Hollywood conservatives. In 1976, he even introduced Betty Ford during the Republican National Convention.

Also, religion and politics should be completely separate. Completely separate.” He eventually came back around and now supports Donald Trump. “We finally have a president who knows the real values of our people. He works for the people, that’s the most important thing. Donald Trump is in love with his country,” he said earlier in 2018.

I bought it when Obummer came into office, because I’m thinking, ‘What if he f***in’ bans guns?'” In 2012, he endorsed Mitt Romney, calling him “the most decent motherf***er I’ve ever met in my life.” He also supported Donald Trump and was one of the first celebrities to visit the White House. On some issues, though, he considers himself moderate.”I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues. I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it,” Rock told The Guardian.
