The Fonz’s Cousin ‘Chachi’ Endorses Donald Trump

scott-baioScott Baio, of Happy Days and Charles in Charge, became the latest celebrity to endorse a presidential candidate––and that candidate is Donald Trump. Baio joins an eclectic group of reality stars and other celebs (of varying success) who have come out for The Donald, ranging from Dennis Rodman and Tila Tequila to Gary Busey and Jon Voight.

After talking about how he campaigned for Ronald Reagan, Baio revealed his much coveted endorsement to Jeanine Pirro. He explained that he’s a conservative independent tired of the GOP who just wants to see Trump “go into Washington and blow it up.”

While he likes Ted Cruz and John Kasich, he apparently wants a Republican who can actually fight back and “relentlessly attack Hillary,” rather than staying above the fray like past Republican nominees. What may, moving forward, become known as the “sit on it” test.

He also claimed that some of his liberal Hollywood friends are more conservative than they think but they just hate the word “Republican.”

Correction: An earlier version of this headline stated that Chachi was The Fonz’s nephew. They were cousins on Happy Days. We regret jumping the shark like that.
