Scott Baio Endorses Donald Trump: ‘We Need Somebody to Relentlessly Attack Hillary’

Scott Baio has added his name to the list of celebrities who are getting behind Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

The actor revealed his endorsement of Trump to Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday, calling himself “fed up” with the Republican party. When asked why he supports Trump, Baio, who identifies as a conservative independent, said Trump “communicates with people very well.”

“It’s very simple, because when he speaks I understand him,” Baio said. “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.”

The “Charlies in Charge,” “Happy Days” and “Joanie Loves Chachi” actor went on to say that the right needs someone to “relentlessly” take on democrat Hillary Clinton.

“They’re going to attack whomever the Republican nominee is,” he said. “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.”

Baio also slammed the Republican party, telling Pirro that it “lie and conned and B.S.ed” him. He’s only the latest celebrity voicing support for Trump, joining Ted Nugent, Jon Voight, Kid Rock, Aaron Carter, Willie Robertson and Stephen Baldwin. Meanwhile, stars including Johnny Depp and Louis C.K. have spoken out against him.

Baio previously supported Scott Walker for president.
