Sylvester Stallone Under Consideration For Trump National Endowment For Arts Appointment

Amy Feinstein

Well, if Donald Trump is looking to add some action and adventure to his administration, then he's come to the right place because the word is he's thinking of tapping Sylvester Stallone to head up the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). Trump obviously took Arnold Schwarzenegger out of the running after Ahnuld called Trump out for being disrespectful to women back when the Billy Bush tape came out during the election. And perhaps a Stallone appointment makes sense because at least he is in the correct industry, and Stallone has always supported Trump.

But showing support hasn't always been enough, as Chris Christie found out, says the Inquisitr. Christie, who supported the Trump campaign, ended up being pushed out of the inner circle after the Trump victory.

"I love Donald Trump."

And reportedly, the feeling is mutual.

Unlike Kanye West and Ray Lewis, Sylvester Stallone has not taken an express flight to Trump Tower to speak to the President-elect, but it sounds like if he got an invite, he would come. The NEA is currently chaired by artist Jane Chu, and she manages a budget of $150 million.

"It's been widely and wrongly assumed that a Trump Presidency will be hostile to the arts," a source told 'But Mr Trump feels this sort of A-list appointment is precisely the shot in the arm that the industry needs."

And though Stallone is said not to be a Republican, in the past he has also supported John McCain. But Sylvester Stallone says that Donald Trump is "larger than life," and a "Dickensian character."

"You know what I mean? 'There are certain people like Arnold, Babe Ruth, that are bigger than life. But I don't know how that translates to running the world."

Ironically, the NEA was formerly housed in the Old Post Office building that is now the new Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C. The NEA was formed in the sixties, and is "an independent federal agency that funds, promotes, and supports everything from museums and opera to folk music, dance and design."

And brother Frank is also obviously on board with the whole Trump thing, as his Twitter account shows the Trump slogan.

"Make America Great Again."

Do you think that Sylvester Stallone would make a good appointment for the NEA?
