Before you go revoking Anthony Mackie’s Black card, the actor wants you to know he is not a Donald Trump supporter. Monday afternoon after his interview with BET angered fans and caused Black Twitter to go off, Mackie tweeted:
Sorry Donald, that wasn’t an endorsement. Just a bad attempt at a joke, I guess?
During the interview for his new film Our Brand is Crisis, Mackie was asked if he would rather run Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump’s campaign, and he said Trump without a doubt. “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.”
Mackie, who plays a campaign manager in the film opposite Sandra Bullock, also went on to say he felt like Trump “worked his way up from nothing.” But, Mackie had a whole other response about the Presidential candidates, particularly the Republicans when we talked to him during the same press junket.
HipHollywood asked Mackie if he was optimistic about this crop of candidates and he told us: “The Republican Party is just a mess, I mean, I don’t think they even have humans running, they are about to throw a cow in the race. The Democratic Party, which I am proud to say, in their debate they talked abut more than the Republican party talked about in their first two debates. So I think there is a definite push from the Democrats for answers, but I think there is a dumbing down of American politics on the Republican side that’s going to come to a ferocious head.”
So who would Mackie vote for? The 37 year old actor told us it would be … wait for it, Kanye West. Check out the video for his full quote.
Our Brand is Crisis hits theaters October 30th.
Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
