Actor Robert Davi was on Laura Ingraham’s show last night to discuss the Messing/McCormick anti-Trump blacklist debacle.
Toward the end of the interview Davi explained to Laura that despite Hollywood being incredibly liberal, 95% of the technical crews are pro Trump and actually thank him for being pro-Trump:
“The below-the-line people – the key grips, the sound guys, the lighting guys, the gaffers, the makeup artists – a lot of them, 95 percent are for Trump.
“So, when they go in front of the cameras, they’re frightened. They come to me and say, ‘Man, thank you for speaking up for us. Thank you for being one of the few that speak up.’”
Davi also admitted something that I thought was very interesting. He said that he’s been asked by some in Hollywood, on several occasions, to denounce Trump:
I’ve been offered by other people in the industry, at certain points, to denounce Trump. And they said ‘what do you want?’…’you’d be on every talk show, everything…’
But of course Davi has turned them down. And he admitted that he’s been blackballed because of his support for Trump, saying that he’s been told so many times that a director wanted to use him ‘but he knows he can’t’.
