It’s the endorsement we’ve all been waiting for: that of Jimmy McMillan. In case you’ve forgotten, he’s the founder of the “Rent is Too Damn High Party,” and became known nationally in 2010 after his participation in a gubernatorial debate for New York state.
He’s stopped running for office, but he’s not keeping his opinion out of any races anytime soon. As The Hill reports:
The founder of the Rent is Too Damn High Party is endorsing billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump for president.
Jimmy McMillan, an advocate for affordable housing and a Vietnam veteran, told the New York Daily News that Trump’s support for veterans outweighs any negatives.
“He’s the only one who is supporting my brother veterans, which is good enough for me,” McMillan said of the Republican presidential front-runner.
“My main concern is helping my brother veterans get help,” he added. “America needs change.”
McMillan, who also ran for president in 2012, said he wanted Trump to be his vice president at the time.I predicted as much. He IS concerned about real estate issues after all… I just wonder if he’s aware of the rent prices Donald Trump charges.
