Actors and Trump supporters, Scott Baio and Steven Baldwin joined Fox News’ Judge Jeanine on Wednesday to discuss Hollywood’s reaction to Donald Trump’s victory.
She asked them both the same question: “Now that you guys have basically “come out of the closet,” do you think more conservatives in Hollywood would be willing to admit they support the President-elect?”
“I think right now with all this anger, which is just so unbelievable to me,” said Baio. “I mean eight years ago I wasn’t crying, and looking for a dog to hold. I wasn’t looking for somebody with a pin on their shoulder that was a safety person. I sucked it up. We lost. Personally, if I don’t ever work again — and I told you this before judge — and Donald Trump is now President-elect Donald Trump…I’m good.”
“Yes and no,” answered Baldwin. “I think a lot of people who are Hollywood folks who voted for Trump inevitably will start coming out of the closet so to speak, and Scott and I agree on one thing. We’re two actors — been in the business 30 years — and our biggest driver in support for Mr. Trump has been the economy.”
“Just like Reagan, when everyone was afraid of Reagan, it was the same exact rhetoric,” added Baio. “When the economy turns around, and when the country gets strong again, that’s when you’re going to see all these people come out of the woodwork in Hollywood for Trump.”
