Actor and comedian Michael Rappaport, known for his unsparing criticism of former President Donald Trump, has apparently revised his political stance, according to a video he released on social media.
In a video posted on Thursday, Rappaport, 53, conveyed that he is now considering voting for Trump in the upcoming presidential election. This statement comes as a significant shift for Rappaport, who has been vocal in his criticism of Trump over the years.
“If it comes down to pig d–k Donald Trump and smokin’ Joe Biden. I’m sorry, I am sorry – voting for pig d–k Donald Trump is on the table,” Rappaport stated.
“I’m sorry! I’m f–king – I’ll still call him slob d–k Donald Trump, pig d–k Donald Trump, and all that. But we need to get this whole f–king situation under control,” Rappaport continued.
The “True Romance” actor’s change of heart is apparently attributable to recent events, particularly a purported rise in antisemitism in the United States. He has been an outspoken critic of pro-Palestine rallies and antisemitic incidents, especially in New York City.
“For d–k stain Donald Trump, who I had conversations with, I might vote for that motherf–ker. Oh yea, I’ll break the f–king – Oh yea, I’ll break your hearts. Let me tell you something, if things don’t get straightened up in this f–king world ASAP, and I know smokin’ Joe has said the right thing about Israel,” Rapport stated in a somewhat longer cut of the viral video, which was posted on Wednesday. He expressed his concerns about the current state of the nation, including the economy and public displays of opposition to Israel.
“But when I’m seein’ motherf–kers in New York City climb in public in front of crowds of people — rip down U.N. flag, rip down Israeli flags, rip down American flags on Veterans Day. When the economy is the way the economy is. When I’m paying f–king mortgage up the – I mean I’m getting – forget a colonoscopy! You don’t need to get a colposcopy. Go buy a house!” Rappaport added.
In the context of the upcoming 2024 presidential election, Trump has been gaining traction in the polls. A Nov. 14 Reuters/Ipsos poll shows Trump leading by two points with 32% of the votes in a hypothetical general election against Biden and Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. This is particularly notable in six major swing states that Biden had previously secured in 2020.
