Donald Trump Slams Hillary Clinton’s Celebrity Supporters: They ‘Aren’t Very Hot Anymore’

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.
