Celebrity Apprentice’s Gary Busey Endorses Donald Trump for President, Slams Team Backbone

April 19, 2011 12:00 PM by Shayla Perry

Donald Trump is obviously a big fan of Gary Busey, and despite being fired by the real estate tycoon on Sunday’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice, Busey admitted that he’s a fan of Trump’s as well, telling NBC‘s Today show that he “would be an absolutely good” president. An endorsement from Gary Busey could  be either really good, or REALLY bad, depending on whether you think the eccentric actor is a genius, or clinically insane. If you ask the members of team Backbone, they’re sure to tell you the latter, but Gary doesn’t think too highly of them either!

Not everyone is convinced that Donald Trump is really going to run for President of the United States in 2012, but if he does, one person he can count on to campaign for him is Gary Busey.

In a recent appearance on the Today show, Busey said that Trump would be an “absolutely good” president.

“He knows about this country. He knows the situation we’re in now,” said Busey of Donald Trump’s potential presidential bid.

Although Gary says that he has “great respect for sitting President Barack Obama,” if it came down to Obama and Trump for president in 2012, he’d likely choose The Donald.

As for his teammates on Celebrity Apprentice, Gary Busey didn’t have many — okay, ANY nice things to say.

“The team – Backbone – should be called Backstabber,” said Busey, “because after the second episode they were out to get me, get me out there.

“My team didn’t want me there. My team was not my team,” added the actor, suggesting that the members of Backbone just didn’t understand him.

“I work in a mysterious way. People don’t know what I’m thinking or where I’m coming from,” said Busey.

Alright, is anyone else hoping that Donald Trump does run for President just to see Gary Busey on the campaign trail and how many “bacronyms” he can make out of the word VOTE?!!

    The men’s team on Celebrity Apprentice on April 17, 2011 was appalling. Shows how men & women react to someone who is not up to their standards. Meat Loaf, Lil John and cowboy John are a sad example of a man. Meat Loaf should be in a padded cell, Lil John can’t even show his eyes to the world, what does that tell ya? And cowboy John should be put out to the pasture. Shame shame shame. Why would they want the world to know what fools they are? Right along with Neenee guetto girl and the ever so shining Star Jones. YOU’RE embarassing America. How dare Neenee (what kind of name is that) say LaToya was going to pull a Michael Jackson! That’s one ignorant bitch. LaToya is a woman of integrity and would not stoop to jealousy. Donald Trump grow up and stop being stupid.
