Anthony Mackie is “drinking” the Donald Trump Kool-Aid, and he knows it. The actor just revealed that he is endorsing the crass candidate for president in 2016.

In an interview with BET, Mackie was asked whose presidential campaign he would want to run (he’s out promoting his political drama Our Brand is Crisis), and he picked The Apprentice creator.

Mackie believes that the Donald would be an “easy sell” because he “worked his way up from nothing.”

“I would 100 percent want to run Trump’s campaign. 100 percent,” he said. “I mean, first that’ll be the best party ever when he won, and second, Trump’s an easy sell… When you look at Trump, he’s an easy sell because you can sell him as the guy who worked his way up from nothing. And I think if you’re a ‘pull yourself up by your bootstraps’ candidate, people would identify with that.”

The only hole in Mackie’s understanding of Trump’s background is that he didn’t work his way up from nothing. Trump’s father, Fred, was a real-estate mogul who built affordable-housing complexes all over New York City.

Keep drinking the Kool-Aid, Mackie…

UPDATE: Anthony Mackie apologized for his comments on Twitter.
