Donald Trump said that Hillary Clinton’s supporters are mostly Hollywood celebrities who “aren’t very hot anymore,” during a rally in Tampa on Wednesday.

Taking a shot at the Clinton’s campaign’s momentum, Trump said, “Her supporters have very little enthusiasm.”

He continued, “The only people enthusiastic about her campaign are Hollywood celebrities — in many cases celebrities that aren’t very hot anymore — and Wall Street donors, special interests, lobbyists, etcetera that want to control government, not to the benefit of our country, but to the benefit of their wallet.”

This comes after Trump said that he would bring “showbiz” to the Republican National Convention, but failed to impress with a lineup that highlighted Antonio Sabato Jr. and Scott Baio during its opening night.

Sabato Jr. said that he was bullied after speaking at the RNC, and said that Hollywood directors have blacklisted him. The actor is best known for appearing in the soap opera “General Hospital” in the mid-90s. Baio is known for his role in “Happy Days” which ran from 1977 until 1984.

Meanwhile, celebrities including Kerry Washington and Mark Ruffalo are included in a long list of actors who have rallied against Trump. Katy Perry, Meryl Streep and Elizabeth Banks are some of her other notable celebrity supporters.

Barbra Streisand, who has criticized Trump during her concert tour, is headlining a Clinton event in New York next month. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel hosted an event for Clinton at their home in Los Angeles on Monday.

  1. As I mention James Woods, Stacey Dash, Scott Baio and Sabato, folks stare blankly at me saying they have no idea who they are.
    Of course, according to our lying GOP candidate, Streep, Bank, Timberlake and Biel are washed up…
    This guy…

  2. TEd says:

    They nominated Lady Macbeth.

  3. Losers are losing says:

    It’s “1984” for real!

  4. Ben says:

    Does Donald Trump really think he’s still “hot” ? He’s crazy enough…

  5. Jacques Strappe says:

    “Chachi” and Ted Nugent are so much hotter and relevant than any of those A-list celebs supporting Clinton. LOL Trump is just so sad and pathetic–only A-holes like him.

  6. Walter S says:

    Trump’s former hot celeb:
    1) sarah palin
    2) dennis rodman
    3) willie robertson of Duck Dynasty
    4) Scott Baio, of charle’s in charge and speaker at RNC

    Let me ask, if I may: What’s wrong with this picture?
    From my own POV the primary focus of this article is about Trump’s derisive observations of celebrities associated with Clinton.Have I got it, so far? If so, what in God’s name does any of that TMZ-type garbage have to do with Trump’s campaign strategy (he said with tongue firmly planted in his cheek)?
    His focus should be 100% on Hillary Clinton and her record but, historically, that would be normal with any other presidential candidates. But media-savvy Trump knows his demo, which is your average TV watching Joe and Joan Six-pack.

  8. SMN says:

    God bless Trump. Every day he gives me such a good laugh.

  9. So, who is hot? Scott Baio I have no idea who that guy is. Or Antonio Sabatto who was a model or actor in mid 90’s. Other than that even Justin Bieber dish him. He is just jealous…He would look better if he wouldn’t have said stupid comments like that hahahaha

    • Dunstan says:

      Cale, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, Trump’s m.o. is to take the accusations against him (which are almost entirely true) and fling them back at warp speed.

      He is delusional, demented and deranged. And the most dangerous man in America not currently behind bars.

  10. Drew Gars says:

    Look who’s talking. He has endorsements from celebs that are washed up and no one gives a fuck about. At least Clinton has endorsements by celebrities that are well educated and are still working. AKA, people with actually intelligence.

  11. A.J. Eaton says:

    Well, what can we say…Trump does have the support of Hollywood A-listers Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato, Jr.

  12. Chris Darling says:

    My God what a major arsehole. I guess Donald doesn’t realize that his television series was a comedy program. Nobody ever took it seriously except perhaps Donald and his family. Most Americans tuned in to watch the absolute ridiculousness of the whole thing and the bloviating pomposity of Donald Trump. That he has managed to turn satire into nightmare shows that he has a heretofor unrecognized talent. But then Hitler was originally thought of only as a failed painter and quite a bit of a joke in artistic circles until he started painting on a much larger canvas…

  13. EricJ says:

    Uh, speaking of “Not hot anymore”, Don…

  14. Mark says:

    Bernie endorsed Clinton, stop lying.
