During an interview with, of all places, BET (Black Entertainment Television), actor Anthony Mackie committed the ultimate transgression in the eyes of the supposedly loving, tolerant and open-minded left. Mackie announced on national television that he is on the Trump train and would love to run his campaign.
Mackie, best known for his role in Hurt Locker and the Captain America movies, made it clear that his statement was not a joke. He’s also not supporting Trump only because he’s a reality TV star and real estate mogul with wide name recognition. Mackie believes that Trump’s life story is one that is an “easy sell,” believing his life story is inspiring.
While speaking with BET to promote his new film Our Brand is Crisis, a political comedy which also stars Sandra Bullock, Mackie said, “I would 100 percent want to run Trump’s campaign. 100 percent. I mean, first that’ll be the best party ever when he won, and second, Trump’s an easy sell… When you look at Trump, he’s an easy sell because you can sell him as the guy who worked his way up from nothing. And I think if you’re a ‘pull yourself up by your bootstraps’ candidate, people would identify with that.”
He then excitedly proclaimed, “I’m on the bandwagon. I’m drinking the Kool-Aid!”
I support your freedom to declare your support for your candidate of choice for the presidency, Falcon…I mean, Mackie. But, leftists on Twitter can’t say the same.
Of course, the leftists on Twitter would have none of that! Doesn’t Mackie know that he’s now allowed to leave the Democrat plantation? He’s not allowed to support anyone for president unless they are a Democrat. He’s not allowed to think for himself.
Black Twitter, in all their hate and bigotry, along with their white bigoted counterparts, will put him in his place if he dares to step out of line!
And that’s what they did, in all their intolerant ways.
Don’t you know that once you’ve been in a Spike Lee movie and you’re black, you are relegated for life to never supporting Trump? That’s according to this idiot.
Dear Anthony Mackie, you can’t be in Spike Lee movies and endorse Donald Trump.

He is deemed a disappointment.
He’s lost his ‘hotness’ factor for some.
And just like that. Anthony Mackie just lost any amount of FINE he had. That dude just said he’d “run Trump’s campaign. 100%.” I can’t.

There were “prayers” that he was just kidding!
Please tell me Anthony Mackie was joking about supporting Trump. Please tell me Anthony Mackie was joking about supporting Trump. — Spooky Mojito (@deggowaffles) October 19, 2015
And, of course, for daring to say he supports Trump, his character of Falcon must be destroyed.

Typical of the intolerant, bigoted, and closed-minded leftists. Typical.
