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.”
Actor Clint Eastwood signed a petition that was presented to the Supreme Court late last week in support of gay marriage, ABC news reported.
The petition was presented to the Court prior to their review of California’s Prop. 8 that banned gay marriage in the state.
Eastwood joined nearly 100 other notable Republicans in supporting gay marriage. Others on the list included former California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, former congresswoman Mary Bono Mack and former commerce secretary under President George W. Bush, Carlos Gutierrez.
Eastwood, a proclaimed libertarian, was both praised and scrutinized for his speech at the Republican National Convention late last summer.

Actress Mila Kunis ripped Republicans in the latest publication of Esquire.
“The way that Republicans attack women is so offensive to me,” Kunis said. “And the way they talk about religion is offensive. I may not be a practicing Jew, but why we gotta talk about Jesus all the time? And it’s baffling to me how a poor person in Georgia can say, ‘I’m a Republican.’ Why?”
The actress then brought up a commercial that 2008 presidential hopeful John McCain ran during his bid for the White House.
“God, not many people have seen this commercial,” Kunis said. “McCain’s walking along the Arizona border fence and talking to a sheriff, and the sheriff says, ‘You’re one of us, sir.’ And McCain turns to the sheriff and says, ‘Eh, finish the dang fence.’ I lost my shit. ‘Finish the dang fence.'”
When asked if she considered herself political, Kunis said she finds enjoyment in the topic of politics.
“I find it all to be incredibly entertaining,” Kunis said. “I went to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner with Wolf Blitzer. It’s weird: You get invited by people you don’t know — and I never wanna go again, because I had the most incredible experience. Ever. I watch CNN or MSNBC all day long, every day. So I meet with Wolf, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God. There’s Wolf Blitzer.’ Like two drinks in, I just start talking. ‘So, about Ahmadinejad’s nephew …’ Wolf was surprised I followed politics.”

Actor Kelsey Grammer discussed his Emmy-snub for his hit-show Boss on Starz with Jay Leno on Tuesday.
Grammer, 57, won a Golden Globe last January for his role in Boss. When Leno pressed why he was overlooked for an Emmy nomination, Grammer said it might have to do with his political views.
“It’s a question that will remain one for me throughout the ages,” Grammer said. “It may have to do with several things, honestly, but I think it’s possible. I mean, I’m a declared out-of-the-closet Republican in Hollywood.”
But Grammer said he doesn’t believe that’s the case.
“Do I believe it’s possible that some young person, young voting actor—or even older voting member for the Emmys — would sit there and go, ‘Yeah, that’s a great performance, but oooooooh, I just hate everything he stands for’?” he said.
Obama supporter and actor Morgan Freeman told NPR that Obama is not America’s first black leader.
“First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him … they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America,” Freeman said. “There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America’s first black president hasn’t arisen yet. He’s not America’s first black president — he’s America’s first mixed-race president.”
Freeman said Republicans want the president to fail.
“He is being purposely, purposely thwarted by the Republican Party, who started out at the beginning of his tenure by saying, ‘We are going to do whatever is necessary to make sure that he’s only going to serve one term,’ ” he said. “That means they will not cooperate with him on anything. So to say he’s ineffective is a misappropriation of the facts.”
Actor Chuck Norris is lending his voice in an effort to keep Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in office.
Walker is facing a tough race against Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (D) in the recall election on Tuesday. The election is said to be in a dead heat, with some polls suggesting Walker with a slight lead. Last week, former President Bill Clinton campaigned with Barrett in Milwaulkee.
Norris wrote a column for the WorldNetDaily outlining why Walker is the best choice for Tuesday’s election:
“Wisconsin Democrats, Washington elite and insiders, and liberal special interests have joined together to fight for the recall of Gov. Scott Walker in Wisconsin in Tuesday’s election. But last Friday, when I saw them also send in the big guns, former President Bill Clinton himself, against Gov. Walker, I knew I had to enter the ring, too.”
“Walker’s recall is not just about Wisconsin; it is about national reform. It’s about living within our means. It’s about taking back our republic. It is about saving our nation and posterity, one election and state at a time.”
“Ronald Reagan was right, ‘Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.'”
Norris has been an outspoken conservative, most recently throwing his support behind Newt Gingrich in the GOP primary
Beach Boys member Bruce Johnston isn’t giving President Obama any good vibrations.
The singer recently went off on the president.
“Obama is an a–hole,” Johnston said in a video posted on TMZ. “Unless you’re interested in never having any money and being socialized.”
Johnston went on to say that if Obama is re-elected, “you’re f*cked.”
Although his views of the president weren’t very positive, Johnston’s views of Mitt Romney don’t seem to be any better.
“And who’s the Republican a–hole?” Johnston blurted. “Our guy isn’t any good.”
