Joey Lawrence Endorses Donald Trump

April 28th, 2011 // 60 Comments

After having his ass handed to him yesterday by the president himself, (Or did he? Says these crazy people here and here.) Donald Trump has miraculously received the crucial Joey Lawrence endorsement that will make him a lock for the 2012 presidential election should he decide to run which he won’t. FOX News, of course, reports:

“Obama was something fresh, and new, and people wanted to put their faith in his message of being different and ‘change’ and all this stuff two years ago, but that fell flat because he gets in there and it’s pretty much the same old thing. I think everybody can agree on that, there’s no real change,” he told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column at the Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Issue soiree in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. “It would just be nice to see him make speeches instead of Hillary (Clinton) and Timothy Geithner and all these other people. Something’s not working; definitely the approach we’re taking is not working.”
… “I’d be open to Donald. He’s somebody out of the box and I think that some of the stuff he’s saying makes sense. It sounds like you and I would say it, and it’s time,” Lawrence said. “I’m tired of ‘so politically correct’ every step of the way. It’s like there are times when we need to say, ‘We’re getting our rear ends kicked, we are the world leader, we need to step up and act like it.’”
Lawrence said speaking out like this isn’t usually his style.
“Everyone is so afraid to say anything. I keep my political views private; I think that’s the best way to do it. But I have no problem calling a spade a spade,” he said. “I think Donald is an interesting character. He’s an amazing CEO, this is a business. This is a business, running this country is a business and it has not been run the last decade the right way, whether it’s Republican or Democrat, so it’s not really a party issue, it’s more of a person issue. Somebody has to get in there and really hold people accountable.”

It says a lot about Joey Lawrence’s political savvy that he’s decided to come forward now only to embrace a candidate that’s pretty much universally understood to be faking a run just to drum up publicity and ratings for Celebrity Apprentice. That said, it’ll be hilarious to watch conservatives try and say Hollywood should keep its mouth shut about politics on this one. “Well, uh, you see, ‘Whoa!’ has the rallying cry of the over-taxed American, has it not? Not to mention his work on Gimme a Break! practically makes Joey Lawrence a scholar on post-racial America. ‘Nothin’ My Love Can’t Fix’ is to this day, a poignant look at the white man’s struggle to break into the racially oppressive hip-hop community. It’s as revelatory as it is funky. — My dog.”

    “It says a lot about Joey Lawrence’s political savvy that he’s decided to come forward now only to embrace a candidate that’s pretty much universally understood to be faking a run just to drum up publicity and ratings for Celebrity Apprentice.”

    Yeah, because he’s doing the same thing? Getting press for endorsing a political candidate that is getting a bunch of press? I’m sure we’ll hear about Joey’s new show/book/perfume soon enough…

      As usual, the political ignorance on this site by its owner and readers is juvenile. There is NOTHING in his statement that ENDORSES anyone.

      “I’d be open to Donald.” and “But I have no problem calling a spade a spade” is by no means an endorsement.

      You guys reading that into his comments with high hopes of some sort of Obama re-election (HAH) are fucking retarded. Par for the course.

      • The writer was showing Joey’s ignorance & clear lack of weight in the political world by using the word ‘endorsement’ to make fun of him. Nobody but you actually thinks this will have any relevance in the world bc Joey Lawrence doesn’t have any relevance as a human being.
        So while it obviously wasn’t an official endorsement, anybody who’d consider someone who’s not even taking himself seriously and is only doing this for PR is a buffoon.
        Anybody who would criticize someone for ‘reading into things’ while having zero understanding of context themselves is an even bigger buffoon.
        Go back to ‘managing’ Jay-Z’s career.

        For an Illuminati, you’re remarkably dense. You’ve missed the whole point of this site, apparently – or do you think everything that is printed here is correct? The Superficial is the Fox News of celebrity gossip.

        No offense to The Superficial, though.

        @ bianca…

        You sure spend a lot of time on the superficial trying to purpose a witty sense. Does the UNCF know that youre wasting their african studies education on a gossip blog?

        What happened? HuffPo meet their racial quota and start denying memberships? Ebony/ Vibe all filled up with other jobless members?

    • Jim Jones

      LOL the fact that Joey thinks Trump ran a successful business is laughable, given that he bankrupted a freaking casino. I mean, really, that takes some talent.

    Best bit: “I have no problem calling a spade a spade”

    CONTEXT JOEY CONTEXT!

    His career is long dead, but no one’s been able to produce the death certificate.

  4. Ron Popiel

    Ahhhh, he just trying to get Trump’s preferred member discount at The Hairclub For Men.

  5. mr clean

    First his hairline now Trump. What’s Joey going to plug next?

  6. Okay…Joey Lawrence is endorsing a candidate…That’s nice! I hope everyone who respects Joey Lawrence’s political views votes for Trump! Because, Joey is probably the only person in this country that is more idiotic than Trump! Shut the hell up and go watch reruns of Blossom! I’m sure it’s satisfying knowing you’re career ended before you were 30! What an IDIOT!!!!!

    Im not from the states but how come when ever white person mentions Obama and is not praising him to great extents they are considered a racist. I didn’t see any racial motives in what that Lawrence guy said but inevitably the guy who wrote this article turned it in to a race issue because Obama was involved. You are in a sad and dangerous place when people can not question the president. Just my opinion I must be racist because I understand economic policy.

    • You are absolutely right about that! Everything anybody says bad about Obama is supposedly related to race. However, Joey Lawrence should shut the hell up and take his shirt off! That’s all he was ever good for! Still HOT!! Still STUPID!!!

    • You are right David and where are you from. You sound like a smart guy, you from China? You guys are kicking are ass.

    • LJ

      I guess you’re from Texas then.

    • The Listener

      While ‘calling a spade a spade’ is a common expression saying you’re calling it as you see it, in the USA the term “spade” can also be used not only as a reference to a black spade in a deck of cards but also as a racial slur to black people. Although in Joey’s case, he seems to be using it as a perfectly innocent expression, just an unfortunate choice for one.
      A black person will have a problem with a white person criticizing the President if the white person uses metaphors, similes, or other analogies that have clear racial overtones during the actual criticism.

    I think if you try to look up a definition of what’s below a D-List celebrity, you won’t even find a photo of Joey Lawrence.

  9. rough the source

    What were the circumstances that fox would ask Joey Lawrence for his opinion? Blossom wasn’t available?

  10. Sarah

    I was hoping Obama would meet with Ricky Schroeder. Their rally cry for helping the middle class could be “NO MORE SILVER SPOONS!” It would be perfect and my life would be complete.

  11. zomgbie

    whos joey lawrence?

    • The Listener

      USA actor from 1980s show “Gimme a Break.” (I loved that show.) Made a few songs as a teen heartthrob in the 1990s when he starred in TV show “Blossom.” Famous song-’Nothin’ My Love Can’t Fix’ made in the 1990s.

  12. Did someone crack open the “irrelevant actors and musicians” time capsule or something? These guys keep popping up of late… WTF?

  13. Bob

    How did Trump get his ass handed to him? If anything it showed that Obama is Trump’s bitch.

    Trump: Hey Barry–jump!
    Obama: How high?

    • Sarah

      You’re an idiot, and probably a racist. You should look into it.

    • Racist? Really? Must you cry “racism” when you cannot argue validly???

      Trump got the birth certificate released.

      That is called RESULTS… which happens to be a word Barry doesn’t know the meaning of…

      • Tell me your not giving credit to Trump for getting the birth certificate released. And I wouldn’t call this RESULTS either. His birth certificate had been released and verified a long time ago. But this is more like Obama and the White House saying here is another version of it, that everybody knew it already existed except you crazy ass birthers. Now shut the fuck up and contribute something to the discussion of the national deficit, jobs, and the economy. These assholes preached jobs jobs jobs during midterms and were dealing with this shit.

      • Bob

        Wow–you even spew nonsensical shit like your hero, KO. Trump got what he wanted! Trump 1, Barry 0. Case closed.

      • Bob, trump got what he wanted? What was that, to look like a fool and be proven wrong. Now trump is trying to prove that obama did not belong at Harvard. You republicans and tea baggers may like these silly games, but the majority of the americans don’t. People are out here struggling and want jobs and congress to work together. Sorry guys, Trump loses but he doesn’t want to be president anyway. It really makes the republicans look bad.

      • Bob

        Obama’s lack of leadership is on display everyday. I would question his college records, too, after the piss-poor job he’s done so far. The only thing Obama is good at is being a hypocrite.

      • Bob, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink. That describes this piss poor congress and there bickering ways. I see cry baby John Boehner rating are down with the american people. Its funny that the front runner of the republican party is trump. This is not because of a plan to create jobs, stimulate the economy, or foreign affairs. Its because he believes obama birth certificate is fake. If that is your platform and that what it takes to become the front runner in 2012, you guys are fucked. Please give examples of lack of leadership? Didn’t he just help lead to avoid a gov shutdown. Now he wants to work on the deficit, but you guys are worry about a damn birth certificate.

    • Keith you really should stop jumping to conclusions. I am not a Republican, a birther, or a Tea Bagger.

      I was talking about the fact that BO finally released the FULL birth certificate after Trump made it an issue again. Trump made that happen. Deal with it LibTard.

    • Actually, here is the best solution to all of these problems.

      Purge them ALL.

      Having American’s bicker and argue over issues is how Congress keeps American’s from realizing just how badly it has gotten in DC. They really don’t serve the people anymore.

      ALWAYS VOTE NON-INCUMBENT

  14. Donald Trump

    Thanks for the endorsement Joey. But I gotta ask….WTF happened to your face?

  15. kulit

    Looks like a wax figure.

  16. Celeb apprentice pr? Thats sweet serendipidy–looking more closely i’d bet trumps a dem who wants to split the gop vote. Look who hes endorsed in the past. Theyre often democrats. Not to mention trymp was bashing bush and singing obamas praise not that long ago.

    Hey fish maybe ill send you a copy of my fire and rescue certs. Seems to be the in thing this week, refuting the crazies who have nothing better to do than cut down those who do more than them. Poor fragile egos…

    Catch u all later were fuckin rocked this week.

  17. dontlooknow

    Who the hell cares who “Joey Lawrence” endorses?

  18. Kanyeisgay

    How bad of a president do we have to have to get Trump this kinda of attention ? Oh yea, I forgot the arrogant guy in the White House right now that “guilty feeling white people” AL Sharpton quote by the way and the blacks voted in because of a skin color , JUST SAYIN’ !

  19. Richard McBeef

    Tonight on a very special episode of Blossom, Joey endorses Trump for President but has regrets when he realizes Trump is against gay marriage.

  20. The Listener

    By asking President Obama to release his grades from college, the implication is that people think that he is not an intelligent man. Considering he is the ONLY US President that I am aware of since the founding of this country that has ever been asked to provide a record of his college grades to the general public suggests that his race is one factor, if not the main factor, behind this request.
    If I were in his position, I would be personally offended and take it as a slap in the face.

  21. Carl

    Nice job Joey. Well said and 99% of pussy actors/actresses won’t call it like it is. Time for some real change not the hopey changey crap we all knew we would get with Nobama.

  22. thespiral

    What the hell? Joey Lawrence is famous enough to get a Madame Tussaud wax sculpture now?

  23. Keithypoo

    Oh good. Some worthless human being backing up another worthless human.

  24. wanda

    Say what u want about Joey,, but the fact that he is hot is undebateable.

  25. SuperTramp

    All this political talk is obscuring the most important fact here. The fact that he looks like Pee Wee Herman in that gray suit.

  26. Anya

    What’s wrong with this homo’s face? He looks like he has more botox than that hairy urinal whatsherface. He looks like he’s wearing some powder and bronzer as well.

  27. sexsells

    he has the skin of an angel…

  28. Normal Male

    Joey Lawrence is a fuckwit and Trump is a lying, teabagging racist. Any and all birthers are racists, plain and simple. But the more idiots vying for the Rushpublican nomination the more diluted the vote and President Obama wins in a landslide. So have at it Rushpublicans, you bunch of ignorant, corrupt scumbags.

  29. Squishy

    Because any one really cares what Joey Lawrence thinks about politics…sorry, who is he again? And because any new president was going to possibly make a night vs day difference with the Bush leftovers they had to begin with, seriously, frak off!
