“I’m not a fan of Donald Trump, but I am so tired of hearing celebrities talk about not being a fan of Donald Trump, that it almost seems like white noise,” Thomas said, according to the Hill. “I think that he’s a man that’s not really equipped for the job, but I think no one really cares what I think about that.” (RELATED: Celebrities Freak Out Over Trump’s Immigration Restriction)
“I have opinions, but my opinions are as a 45-year-old husband, father, taxpayer,” he added. “No matter what I say, they always kind of come across as a guy who sings music and it’s always, ‘Well you need to shut up!'”
“I think that there is a huge part of his base that thinks he’s killing it right now.”
