These Celebrities Appreciate Donald Trump in a Way You Don’t

They actually think he can make America great again.

With each day, the idea of a Donald Trump presidency becomes realer. The businessman with questionable hair is slaying the polls and has all but secured the GOP nomination. How did this happen? How did a reality TV star go from a political punchline to a viable, powerful candidate?

His supporters. And there are tons of ’em. They show up to his rallies in droves, do crazy s–t and chant his name relentlessly. It’s like nothing we’ve ever seen. Some of those supporters are high-profile celebrities. These 14 stars have praised Trump proudly and publicly. Are we missing something here? This is the man who coined a TV catchphrase à la Paris Hilton! And he is going to run the White House? We’re lost, but maybe Mike Tyson and Azealia Banks can help explain.
