Scott Baio is a fervent supporter of Donald Trump’s campaign for president. The actor/director even spoke at the Republican National Convention in July, where he told the audience that Trump is a man who “says what he means” and “means what he says” and is running for president out of the “goodness of his heart.”
After Trump’s latest headline-making stumble, Baio joined Jeanine Pirro on her FOX News show “Justice with Judge Jeanine” to defend Trump’s 2005 so-called “locker room” discussion with Billy Bush that recently emerged.
Baio agreed with Trump’s assessment that this is how men joke around in the locker room. He took it a step further and said anyone who isn’t okay with it just needs to “grow up.”
“First of all, I think 11 years ago Trump was a Democrat, so doesn’t he deserve a pass?” he asked Pirro. “I like Trump because Trump is not a politician. He talks like a guy. And, ladies out there, this is what guys talk about when you’re not around. So if you’re offended by it, grow up. And by the way, this is what you guys talk about over white wine when you have your brunches, so take it easy with your phony outrage. This is the way the world works. It’s not a big thing.”
Pirro interjected that this is not how she talks.
