Actor Scott Baio, who recently endorsed Republican presidential-frontrunner Donald Trump, called on the party to coalesce around the outspoken businessman.
“It’s a huge mistake,” Baio said of establishment Republicans not supporting Trump on Fox Business Network’s ‘Cavuto Coast to Coast.‘ “For some reason, they insist and continue to and will not stop shooting themselves in the head. Not the foot, the head.”
Baio, one of the more outspoken conservatives in Hollywood, wasn’t afraid to criticize the party.
“I just wish the Republican Party — which I don’t really consider myself a part of anymore, because I don’t trust them on anything — I just wish they would attack Democrats the way they attack their own.”
In his endorsement of Trump last week, Baio argued that the former ‘Apprentice’ host is the only one capable of fending off Hillary Clinton’s attacks.
“They’re going to attack whomever the Republican nominee is,” Baio 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.”
