Scott Baio Receives Shout-Out From President, Scorn From Twitter Over Pic Of Trump Candle Display

Scott Baio has been a vocal supporter of the president since Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president five years ago.

On Thursday, the “Happy Days” alum took to Twitter to share a photo purportedly taken in a Michaels craft store.

The former “Charles in Charge” star’s tweet earned a shout-out from Trump himself, currently engaged in a so-far losing legal challenge to invalidate votes in key swing states as he refuses to concede after losing the 2020 presidential election.

Not everyone on Twitter was as impressed by the waxy show of support as Trump.

“Did you rearrange that yourself or did you see it set up like that, or did someone send you this and you weren’t even in Michaels?” a Twitter user asked Baio.

Baio was also hit with backlash by those who aren’t buying into Trump’s evidence-free claims that he won the election.

“Your ‘president’ is going to be unemployed on January 20th,” wrote another Twitter user. “Get ready for it!”

Baio responded with a joke:

Meanwhile, The Hill is reporting that a spokesperson for the craft chain insisted the candle display “was not created by Michaels and has been dismantled.”

The spokesperson added, “At Michaels we strive to maintain an inclusive environment for all our team members and customers.”
