Actor, Anthony Mackie, recently sat down with BET for an interview in promotion of his new film called, Our Brand Is Crisis. In the film, he plays the role much like Kerry Washington does on ABC’s hit TV show, Scandal.
During the interview, he was asked a series of questions; primarily about how he handles the media and if he would be running for office in the next round of elections for presidency.When asked, “If you had to choose which campaign you wanted to run, Clinton’s or Trump’s?” Mackie’s response was quite…debatable!
He said, “I would 100% want to run for Trump’s campaign…Trump’s an easy sell!” He explains further, “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.”
It is still uncertain who Mackie might be voting for on the upcoming election, but it might be clear that he is on Donald Trump’s wagon. “I’m on the bandwagon. I’m drinking the Kool-Aid!” Mackie’s new movie will be in theaters October 30th.
