Locally-bred actor, reality star, and New Kid on the Block Donnie Wahlberg has weighed in on the 2016 presidential race. “Watching [Carly Fiorina] on #MeetThePress She is a strong human being and a strong candidate for President in 2016!,” Wahlberg tweeted Sunday morning about the Republican.
An endorsement from a New Kid might not seem like much, but Wahlberg does have more than 700,000 Twitter followers. His fans responded with mixed reactions. One said, “I agree, Donnie! I love the outsider element to her campaign. Can we get her to be a @celtics fan though?” Another tweeted, “We’ll just have to agree to disagree on this point.”
