Which Candidates Are Clinching Celebrity Endorsements This Election Season?
One person who isn't on the #DumpTrump train? Former Girls Next Door star Wilkinson, who said that despite being pro-choice, she's supporting the businessman in the 2016 election. And she has a lot of thoughts about the way our country runs in general. "I'm more of a conspiracy theorist," she told FOX411. "I think everything is a motive for money. Every thought, every belief, everything we’re taught in school. I just believe there’s more to life than what's in those books." Sounds like someone's ready for a revolution!
DICK VAN DYKE
He's 90 years old, but that doesn't make Van Dyke any less politically active: He spoke out in support of Sanders in a video posted on his YouTube channel, saying that he thinks the candidate should be seen as a catalyst for change. "Whether or not he makes it to the White House, I hope everyone realizes the alarm is sounding now," the actor shared.
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
They've got 'chili' in their name, but that's not the only reason the rock group is feeling the burn (or should we say, Bern?). The men of the Red Hot Chili Peppers voiced their support for the Vermont senator when they headlined a benefit concert on his behalf. "So excited to be playing this concert for Bernie Sanders next week," bassist Flea wrote on Instagram. "Feels great to support someone I believe in."
It was snowing in New Hampshire, but Ratajkowski was feeling the bern! The Gone Girl actress headed up north on the day of the state's primary elections to speak at a rally for Bernie Sanders – clad in a cropped Bernie sweater, of course.
After Sanders' loss in Nevada, actor Glover stepped out to support him in the candidate's next battle ground: South Carolina. Clinton has traditionally led with African-American voters, something Glover is trying to change. "I think that African-American voters are astute and certainly intelligent enough to see the difference, and I think they're beginning to see the difference," he said at a rally.
Another African-American speaking up for Sanders is director Lee, who officially endorsed him in an audio clip on Sanders' SoundCloud channel. Lee was won over by Sanders' refusal to take money from corporations, and his long history of activism. "When Bernie gets in the White House, he will do the right thing," Lee said.
Arguably one of the most politically vocal people in Hollywood, Dunham has long been an avid supporter of Hillary Clinton, even featuring the front-runner in her newly-launched Lenny Letter. After Clinton announced her bid for the White House, Dunham tweeted that she was "with you every step of the way, girl" to Clinton – with the hashtag #mypresident.
The comedienne is such a fan of Vermont senator Sanders that she introduced him at a campaign event in Los Angeles. "His moral compass and sense of values inspires me," Silverman said. "He always seems to be on the right side of history."
Snoop's also ready to see a woman in the White House. During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, he said: “Just to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America, I'd love to see that. So I’ll be voting [for] Ms. Clinton."
The funny man is standing up for Sanders in next year's Democratic primary: His name was included on a list of supporters released by the Sanders campaign in September.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Matthews admitted he's feeling the Bern – hard. "When I hear someone like Bernie Sanders talking, I think there's a hope," he said.
RICK HARRISON OF PAWN STARS
Why is this pawn star backing Florida senator Marco Rubio? He thinks that Rubio "honestly cares about the American people." After meeting him in Los Angeles, Harrison was convinced. "The entire time I talked to him, all he wanted to talk about was people and he never mentioned the party once. That was a really big deal to me," he told Fox News.
The Duck Dynasty star may be a friend of The Donald – he made an appearance at a Trump campaign event in September – but Bobby Jindal's camp claims the reality star is sticking behind him.
