She exploded on the scene in 'CLueless' in 1995!
Then, 19 years later, she said enough outrageous things to warrant a spot on Fox News. Continuing that form she is throwing her support behind Donald Trump rather aggressively.
We are moving in, Mr. Trump...," she tweeted in July 2016, alongside a photo of the White House. "If you need anyone to take out the squatters, got your back, Bronx style. #Trump2016"
After being ambushed by TMZ at an airport (the ideal soapbox for spouting one's political views), former 'Incredible Hulk' actor Lou Ferrigno -- a staunch Republican -- was asked for his thoughts on Donald. "I wish Donald the best, he's a fabulous guy. I hope he goes all the way... All he cares about is our country and keeping our country safe."

From one strong man to another (and not the last on this list), former wrestler (or is he still wrestling somewhere -- we don't know) Hulk Hogan not only wants to vote for Trump, he wants to be his running mate. TMZ got the scoop as they chased the Hulkster down the street on the way to the airport (the ideal soapbox for spouting one's political views).
You'll soon pick up on a couple of trends throughout this gallery: i) the 'Celeb Apprentice' alums are 'friends' with Trump, and ii) America should be run like a business. Former NBA star Rodman covered both with this tweet from July 2015.
"@realDonaldTrump has been a great friend for many years. We don't need another politician, we need a businessman like Mr. Trump! Trump 2016"

Clearly demonstrating that there's some sort of brotherhood amongst those whose name is associated with casinos is Wayne Newton, who appeared on 'Fox & Friends' last October to enumerate reasons why he's voting Trump.
“Number one, he tells the truth. Number two, he’s been where most of these guys want to be, in terms of riding on his own plane... I could give you so many reasons but most of all, most important I think for Mr. Trump, is he tells it like it is.”
'Celebrity Apprentice' count: 2.5 (Newton made a cameo on an episode)
The third strong man on this list is former heavyweight boxer and facial-tattoo connoisseur Mike Tyson, whose connection to Trump goes back to when Tyson used to get paid to beat people up in Trump's hotels (as a boxer, that is).
While on HuffPost Live in October 2015, Tyson, like so many on this list, explained his backing of Trump for what he has accomplished in the boardroom. “Let’s try something new. Let’s run America like a business, where no colors matter. Whoever can do the job, gets the job."
The former Mrs. Trump (um, who is now known as Miss Trump?), while not referring to him as a friend, should know Donald better than all others on this list. And despite everything she knows about Donald Trump personally, it is the man's professional acumen that has her voting 'Republican'.
“Yes, of course I’m going to vote for him," she told People magazine earlier this year. "He’s going to run the country as a business. He’s going to negotiate. And he knows how to make decisions.”
One appeared with Trump on 'Celeb Apprentice'; another satirizes Trump on 'SNL'; and another is Billy Baldwin. Clearly politics has come between the Baldwin boys. It began with Stephen speaking of Trump on CNN in July 2015. "I think he'd make a great president... because he's not a politician. And he doesn't care what anybody thinks." He then followed that up with this tweet: "If my father were alive today (a veteran) He would be ashamed & disgusted of media biased & manipulation by people like @andersoncooper." This is when Billy Baldwin, a relative newcomer to the social tool, responded, "If our father were alive today… he'd smack you in the side of the head for supporting Donald Trump." The coup de grace comes courtesy of big brother Alec, who took a sly dig at Stephen during a recent 'SNL' sketch.
'Celebrity Apprentice' count: 4.5 (Baldwin was on the show not once, but twice)
If there's anyone whose prudence and sound judgment should be heeded, it's Gary Busey. "I know him personally. I know him professionally," Busey said of his former TV boss last year. "He's a great guy. He's sharp. He's fast. He can change the country after the last eight years." Yes, Gary, but the debate is whether that "change" will be for the better or the worse.
'Celebrity Apprentice' count: 6.5 (Yep, another who entered Trump's boardroom on more than one season)
The Detroit rap-rocker/rock-rapper, who, last election, performed in the name of Mitt Romney, told Rolling Stone earlier this year he intends on sticking with the GOP. "I'm not an expert at political science or anything. I do try to follow things, obviously. I'm a pretty good, tax-paying citizen of this country. [Laughs] Let the business guy in there. It's not really working too well running it not like a business. I mean, what business fucking survives when they're fucking broke?" Rock may not be a political science whiz but he seems to have the tenets of business down pat.
Joanie may love Chachi but who does Chachi love? Donny.
Once again we turn our attention to Fox News where, earlier this year, Scott Baio explained to host Jeanine Pirro. why Trump was getting his vote.
“It’s very simple, because when he speaks I understand him,”; Baio told Pirro. “He speaks like I speak, he communicates with people very well. I want him, as any one person can do, to go into Washington and blow it up.”
It's hardly a ringing endorsement but we're sure Trump will take whatever the Midnight Cowboy has to offer.
“I’m not someone who’s saying he’s the best of this group. I’m saying I like this guy,” said the Republican actor in March. “He’s an answer to our problems. We need to get behind him."
So much weight in Voight's choice of article, going with "AN answer" instead of "THE answer" but who are we to haggle over semantics.
