The Iowa caucuses are tonight, and things are heating up in the 2016 race to the White House with the first major nominating event of the election season! Historically, the Iowa caucuses have a 43% (Democrat) and 50%(Republican) accuracy rate when it comes to predicting each party’s nominee, and the candidates are racking up the celebrity endorsements as they battle to become the next Commander-in-Chief.
Over the weekend, Buzzfeed News reported that in a recent interview with the outlet, Ron Jeremy officially endorsed his choice for President in 2016: Hillary Clinton.
According to the interview, much of Jeremy’s decision came out of admiration for Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton.
“’I got to shake hands with her husband,’ Jeremy said, noting his admiration for former president Bill Clinton’s role in the Northern Irish peace process and his attempts to resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict. ‘A lot of it’s because of him. When he was in office, she gave him a lot of advice. When she’s in office, he’ll give her a lot of advice.’”
But that wasn’t all Jeremy had to say, and he certainly wasn’t shy when it came to his opinion on the field of Republican candidates.
On party front runner Donald Trump, Jeremy stated that he “likes [Trump] because he’s a New Yorker and because Trump stocks his brand of rum at Trump Tower in Panama. ‘Everyone loves his passion,’ he said, ‘but when it comes down to having a finger on a button, I don’t know if I want Donald Trump’s finger on the button.’
Jeremy had even harsher words for candidate Ben Carson.
“‘He should do what he does best and go back into the OR. Go cure cancer.’ Get the fuck out of the race, you fucking idiot, and do what you do best,’ he added later.”
Wise words, from a wise man. Maybe it’s time to back Ron Jeremy 2016 instead!
