VOICE OVER: Rebecca Brayton

In fact, 'The Donald' can count many celebrity friends among his supprters, including actors Jon Voigt, Lou Ferrigno, and Gary Busey. Athletes such as former NBA star Dennis Rodman, NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens and former boxing champ Mike Tyson. From the celebrities that surprisingly support Trump like Tila Tequila, to the celebrities that are an easier target to hit like Willie Robertson from Duck Dynasty, here's our list of the Top 10 Celebrities Who Support Donald Trump.

Top 10 Celebrities Who Support Donald Trump
These are the celebs that, along with The Donald, have expressed their desire to “make America great again.” Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 celebrities who support Donald Trump.
For this list, we’re looking at celebrities that have, at one point or another, publicly proclaimed their support for Donald Trump, the Republican Party nominee for President of the United States in the 2016 election. We’re excluding politicians and other famous individuals, like Aaron Carter and Mark Cuban, who seem to have since changed their minds about voting for Trump. However, note that, since this list was ranked in August 2016, and because Trump is so polarising, it is possible that some entries on this list will switch sides before the election in November 2016.
#10: Dana White
Many of Trump’s critics have called him a bully. So it makes sense that he’d get along with UFC president Dana White, a man whose paycheck comes from being the head of an organization where people beat each other up. In all seriousness though, the two go way back, as Trump gave White a place to host UFC events in Atlantic City with the Trump Taj Mahal when the MMA promotion company was still in its infancy. While White has admitted he’s never been that into politics, he has voiced his support for Trump for standing up for the UFC in the early days – despite the fact that Trump’s a major shareholder in rival company, Affliction Entertainment. White even spoke at the Republican National Convention in July 2016, calling Trump a fighter and a good friend.
#9: Lou Ferrigno
Lou Ferrigno is the first of several entries on this list that was a contestant on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” a variation of the TV reality game show hosted by Donald Trump. Ferrigno, known for playing The Incredible Hulk in the 1970s television show, admires Trump for his strength, and plans on voting for him because he promises to make America safe. Ferrigno may have been fired about midway through “The Apprentice,” but maybe Trump will hire him as a Secretary of Defense. After all, The Donald wants America’s enemies to fear him, and what better way to do that than to put a guy who can transform into a massive green creature in charge of the military? We kid… or at least we think we kid…
#8: Kid Rock
Kid Rock has been known to be an outspoken conservative, though not all of his views can be categorized under that political philosophy as he’s also stated that he considers himself more of a libertarian these days. However, he did permit his song “Born Free” to be used by republican Mitt Romney for his 2012 presidential campaign. So it shouldn’t come as a “yuge” surprise that Kid Rock has endorsed Donald Trump. In February 2016, the musician stated in a Rolling Stone interview that he’s “digging Trump.” He elaborated that they should “let the motherf----g business guy run [the country] like a f----g business” because he hasn’t seen any big changes “whether it’s been a Republican or a Democrat in office.” Kid Rock also added that Trump’s campaign has been “entertaining as shit.” No matter how you feel about Trump, at least that last statement is one thing most of us can agree on.
#7: Terrell Owens
At first glance, the brash billionaire and the star football wide receiver may seem like they have nothing in common. However, they both love to talk trash and get into fights, and they both have been criticized for their hands. Owens for dropping the ball, and Trump for… you know. Owens actually appeared on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” and was fired early on. Nonetheless, T.O. held no hard feelings. Actually, he gained a lot of respect for Trump through the experience and told TMZ that he supports the candidate’s run because “he won’t put up with BS”. Interestingly, T.O. also said he has no beef with Obama either.
#6: Hulk Hogan
Former WWE wrestling legend Hulk Hogan not only supports Donald Trump; he’s also said he would’ve liked to have been a candidate for vice president alongside him. When asked by TMZ, “If you could have any presidential candidate in the ring with you, who would you be most excited to leg drop, or go against?", Hogan’s response was "I don’t want to be in the ring with any candidates, I want to be Trump's running mate." And he went on to refer to himself as Vice President Hogan. Unfortunately, both men have been accused of racism. In fact, Hulk Hogan was fired from the WWE for using the N-word. Hogan later apologized; Trump, on the other hand, seems to have a hard time doing that.
#5: Jon Voight
Despite becoming a counterculture icon by starring in such films as Midnight Cowboy and Coming Home, Academy Award winner Jon Voight is firmly on team Trump! He finds Donald Trump “funny, playful and colorful, but most of all, he is honest.” He feels The Donald is the only one that can bring back America’s prosperity. Voight even narrated a video for him that was shown at the Republican National Convention. That’s despite Trump’s apparent dislike for his daughter, Angelina Jolie: Trump has criticized Jolie’s attractiveness and behavior while on talk shows like “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “Larry King Live”. Jon Voight has reached out to the Trump campaign and vowed to help Trump get elected any way that he can.
#4: Willie Robertson
“Duck Dynasty” reality TV star Willie Robertson thinks Donald Trump can make America great again. What’s more: “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil became part of team Trump in 2016, after having previously endorsed Texas Senator Ted Cruz. On the Fox show “Outnumbered,” Willie declared that Trump is a “breath of fresh air” and “a real guy,” not an “over-glossed politician.” He believes Trump is a strong leader with solid conservative values, and one who will firmly support the second amendment. What’s more, Willie’s also impressed by Trump’s abilities as a businessman and a family man.
#3: Gary Busey
Another member of “The Celebrity Apprentice” family endorsing Donald Trump is Academy Award-nominated actor Gary Busey. Despite being fired by Donald Trump on the show, and once again on the “All-Star” season of Celebrity Apprentice,” Busey is still a Trump fan and enjoyed every day he spent with The Donald. The eccentric Lethal Weapon and Point Break star thinks Donald Trump is sharp, fast and “can change the country after the last eight years.” In Busey’s own words, the name Trump stands for “Taking Redirection Understanding Massive Power.” Whoa, now that is a ringing endorsement for Team Trump!
#2: Dennis Rodman
Dennis Rodman is not only an NBA Hall-of-Famer; he’s also a “Celebrity Apprentice” and “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” alum, as well as a proud Donald Trump supporter. Rodman, also known as “The Worm”, tweeted that America doesn’t need another politician, America “needs a businessman like Mr. Trump!” The colorful bad boy of basketball has been friends with Trump for years, and does not hold a grudge for getting fired twice; the second time for spelling Melania Trump’s name incorrectly in a presentation. Given that Rodman has experience in international diplomacy, after his successful visits with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, maybe Trump will want some foreign policy advice from him.
Before we get to our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions
- Tila Tequila
- Jesse James
- Ted Nugent
#1: Mike Tyson
Trump says he wants America to be tough, so it’s no surprise that he got the endorsement of former heavyweight champ, Mike Tyson; a guy so tough he bit off part of Evander Holyfield’s ear! Trump and Tyson go way back: Tyson fought some of his biggest bouts at Trump hotel-casinos. Trump was there for Tyson during his 1992 rape conviction, proposing that Tyson shouldn’t go to jail and should be able to continue fighting, with his proceeds going to rape victims. Of course, Trump would’ve likely benefited from this deal, if it had come to pass. Even though Tyson converted to Islam while he was in prison, he still gives Trump the benefit of the doubt regarding the ban on Muslims, as the ex-boxer doesn’t think Trump would actually do go through with it.
