Scott Baio said recently that he’s fed up with his party’s candidates for president with one exception: Donald Trump.
The former Happy Days actor says he’s backing Trump because of his ability to communicate, unlike some other Republicans.
“They’ve lied and conned and B.S.ed me. They’re going to attack whomever the Republican nominee is and we need somebody to relentlessly, relentlessly attack Hillary. It’s the only way we’re going to win. I’m trying to be a classy guy, but to win elections nowadays, the Democrats and liberals attack viciously…it’s very simple, because when he speaks I understand him. He speaks like I speak, he communicates with people very well. I want him, as any one person can do, to go into Washington and blow it up,” Baio said.

Baio’s views aren’t sitting well with some, however, who have taken to Twitter to express their disbelief that he would endorse Trump.
If Scott Baio is going to repulse us all with his political opinions, I politely request that he date either Jonathan Franzen or Bjork.

Donald Trump made headlines again today after news broke that ISIS had claimed responsibility for the attacks in Brussels, killing dozens of people, saying that the U.S. should be careful in the future.
“I will tell you, I’ve been talking about this a long time, and look at Brussels. Brussels was a beautiful city, a beautiful place with zero crime. And now it’s a disaster city. It’s a total disaster, and we have to be very careful in the United States, we have to be very careful and very vigilant as to who we allow in this country,” Trump said.
