Anthony Mackie clearly has a drinking problem.

Though not the kind of drinking problem to which Scott Disick or others of that nature can relate.

In an interview this week with BET, the actor was asked which 2016 Presidential campaign he would want to run, in light of his role in the new film Our Brand is Crisis.

“I would 100 percent want to run Trump’s campaign,” said Mackie. “First, that’ll be the best party ever when he won, and second, Trump’s an easy sell."

An easy sell? How so?

"If you you look at Trump, he’s an easy sell because you can sell him as the guy who worked his way up from nothing," Mackie said.

"And I think if you’re a ‘pull yourself up by your bootstraps’ candidate, people would identify with that.”

That may be true as a general role… but Trump’s father was a millionaire real estate developer who played a key role in his son’s path to riches.

So Trump is the opposite of a guy who worked his way up from nothing. Other than that detail, Mackie’s assessment is spot on.

“I’m on the bandwagon," Mackie, the anti-Jennifer Lawrence, said when asked if he would be voting for Trump. "I’m drinking the Kool-Aid."

And we’ve heard that’s the BEST Kool-Aid out there. It makes all other types of Kool-Aid into total and complete losers.
