In an interview with TMZ, the Hulk actor did not hesitate to express his admiration for Donald Trump, and his hope that “The Donald” is successful with his candidacy.
“You know, all I can say is that I wish Donald the best. He’s a fabulous guy. I hope he goes all the way and I love all people…”
Lou Ferrigno further explained exactly why he strongly believes that Donald Trump has a legitimate chance of winning the election and becoming the next elected official to have a special seat inside of the Oval Office.
“[Donald] cares about our country. Keeping our country safe. That’s what it comes down to… We have so many problems in this country.”
The topic of Donald Trump possibly running as a third-party candidate was also brought up by the interviewer. He asked Lou, an actor who is a well-known conservative, if that could possibly hurt the Republican party.
“I think that he said the truth… More power to him. It’d be interesting, because it’s all about saving our country. Keeping our country safe. I love all people… I love Donald Trump.”
Lou Ferrigno made headlines back in April 2012 when he joined the long list of celebrities that were fired by Donald Trump on the hit reality competition show, Celebrity Apprentice.
Weeks before Lou was booted from the show, Donald Trump opened up to the media about how he felt about Lou, as well as Lou’s overall enthusiasm for being on the show in the first place.
“He’s wanted to be on so badly and he’s so intense and he tries so hard, and I think that actually hurts him because he tries so hard that it actually turns off…other people. I know how hard he worked to be on this – he just wanted to be on so badly… We are humans and it is hard to forget that, but I think he’s doing a great job. I think he’s a real character, but his intensity and his wanting to win is so intense that I think it actually hurts him.”
It’s clear that Lou Ferrigno still has a lot of respect for Donald Trump, even years after he was fired. Apparently, he has enough respect and love for Trump that he hopes the billionaire businessman becomes the next Commander-in-Chief.
