There have been so many major announcements coming out of President-Donald J. Trump’s administration, with one appointment more impressive then the next.
But now, Trump has selected conservative Hollywood icon Sylvester Stallone to “make art great again!”
Stallone, the actor famous for his characters Rambo and Rocky Balboa, will be the Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. It is an agency which supports worthy, aspiring artists and creative projects. It has an annual budget of $146,200,000.
Once formally offered the job, Stallone’s appointment would up to a vote of Congress, where he would certainly have unanimous support!
This is incredible:
While Stallone is positively disposed to the idea, It is not known whether Stallone will accept the gig. He has spoken previously of his admiration for Trump – and of his interest in entering politics.
‘It’s been widely and wrongly assumed that a Trump Presidency will be hostile to the arts,’ a source told DailyMail.com. ‘But Mr Trump feels this sort of A-list appointment is precisely the shot in the arm that the industry needs.’
Stallone, 70 – best known for his roles as John Rambo and Rocky Balboa – backed John McCain’s presidential run in 2008 but he is not a registered Republican.
However the movie action man described Trump as ‘bigger than life’ in a recent interview, though he stopped short of endorsing his Presidency. ‘I love Donald Trump,’ he told Variety Magazine. ‘He’s a great Dickensian character. You know what I mean? ‘There are certain people like Arnold, Babe Ruth, that are bigger than life. But I don’t know how that translates to running the world.’
Stallone is an American hero…
