Donald Trump has picked up a major endorsement. No, not that one, at least not yet. Western movie star John Wayne’s daughter has endorsed Trump, assuring voters that she’s doing what her late father would have done if he’d been around to do it.
"The reason that I'm here to support Mr. Trump is because America needs help," she said. "And we need a strong leader. And we need someone like Mr. Trump with leadership qualities, somebody with courage, someone that's strong like John Wayne."
She added: "If John Wayne were around, he'd be standing right here instead of me."
Trump said he was a "longtime fan" of John Wayne.
This all seems totally plausible, actually. Especially when you consider Wayne's views on race, as laid out in a 1971 Playboy interview:
I believe in white supremacy, until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people … I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from [the Native Americans] … Our so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.
Yeah, I’d say it makes sense that if he was alive, John Wayne would be personally endorsing Donald Trump.he always from the time i was able to understand bigotry and racism impressed me as a platinum card carrier for the cause. wonder how many "say it ain't so's" out there as oppose to shhhhhhhhhh!!! we are finding out majority of Trump supporters are just that birds of a father hate together. he also came off a little effeminate with that signature stroll or walk and the arm wave. no disrespect to my Gay Brothers believe me this is strictly about Wayne.
