Anthony Mackie Endorses Donald Trump: He Worked His Way Up From Nothing

The Our Brand Is Crisis actor said he is "drinking the Kool-Aid."

Looks like we might see Anthony Mackie on the campaign trail with Donald Trump. During a sit-down chat with BET.com during the promotional trail for his new film Our Brand Is Crisis, the actor showed his adoration for the controversial candidate.

"I would 100 percent want to run Trump's campaign. 100 percent," he said. "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."

So, does all this praise mean that Mackie is backing Trump for the 2016 presidency? It seems so: "I'm on the bandwagon," he said. "I'm drinking the Kool-Aid!"

Well, alright then. Watch the video above! Our Brand Is Crisis is in theaters October 30.
