After Anthony Mackie said he was on Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential bandwagon, many of Mackie’s fans were shocked and upset the actor was seemingly on #TeamTrump.
Actually, a lot of them were upset.
So Anthony Mackie is endorsing a racist idiot and doesn't know the basic details of Trump's background. Cool cool.

Remember when Anthony Mackie said he believed a woman's role was to "make daddy a sandwich" … He was losing well before this Trump moment

Dear Anthony Mackie, you can't be in Spike Lee movies and endorse Donald Trump.

Anthony Mackie is a respectable Negro. That he supports Donald Trump is an extension of that respectability for a wide range of reasons.

Anthony Mackie needs to be more concerned about why his restaurant is so expensive with such small portions as opposed to GOP candidates.

After Mackie’s name became a Twitter trending topic, the actor logged on and told his fans–well, actually Trump, he was just kidding about that endorsement.
Sorry Donald, that wasn’t an endorsement. Just a bad attempt at a joke, I guess?
