After what some political pundits called a mediocre second debate performance, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump can rest easy with endorsements from actor Gary Busey and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
“I know him personally. I know him professionally. He’s a great guy. He’s sharp. He’s fast. He can change the country after the last eight years,” Busey told Fox News. The actor endorsed and then unendorsed Newt Gingrich in the 2012 GOP primary.
On Thursday, Brady said it would be “great” if Trump triumphed in 2016.
Meanwhile, Trump’s taken heat from a slew of celebrities:
Sharon Osbourne: “You don’t expect somebody in that sphere to behave that way.”
Robert Redford: “He’s got such a big foot in his mouth I’m not sure you could get it out.”
Andrew Garfield: “I just don’t understand the blatant lack of humanity that he is proudly exhibiting on a daily basis. [It is] harrowing.”
Salma Hayek: “We have to take this very seriously. This is very scary.”
“This is not a reality show. America is not a reality show. This is not a popularity contest. This is not Miss America or Miss Universe.”
Emily Blunt (To Republicans in general): “I became an American citizen recently, and that night, we watched the Republican debate and I thought, ‘This was a terrible mistake. What have I done?'”
