Mackie says his endorsement of Trump in the BET article was a joke.
Sorry Donald, that wasn’t an endorsement. Just a bad attempt at a joke, I guess?

In an interview with BET, Mackie says he endorses Trump.
I would 100 percent want to run Trump’s campaign. 100 percent. 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…I’m on the bandwagon. I’m drinking the Kool-Aid.
Hall talks to Mackie about how when he was a child, he used to watch Hall’s original talk show, and what an influence Hall had on him.
I turned to my mom and said, that man’s a star. I said I want to effect somebody like that.
