John Wayne’s Family Endorses Donald Trump

"This is very important to me because of John and his whole legacy"

Standing in front of a horse saddle, a fake desert background and a statue of John Wayne, Donald Trump accepted the endorsement of Wayne’s family before reporters in Iowa Tuesday morning.

After Wayne’s daughter Aissa introduced Trump, he quipped, “John Wayne would be very proud of you right now, I think. Maybe he would say, ‘What are you doing?'”

“This is very important to me because of John and his whole legacy,” Trump said. “I met him one time and it made such an impression. When you talk about bigger than life, there aren’t too many people bigger than life… It’s an honor to be here, it’s a tremendous honor to have your support and endorsement.”

Trump is fresh off a very warm welcome from Liberty University on Monday, the largest Christian university in the world.


But Trump mispronounced a word. So the trip to Liberty University was a miserable failure.

(This I know. Cause Cruz FReepers tell me so.)

As I recall, Wayne himself favored giving away the Panama Canal. Some said Wayne was senile; others thought he had been a phony all along.

I am sure Trump will claim he can raise him from the dead.

This is probably the endorsement that all of the Trump-haters were foaming at the mouth about, thinking that it was Sarah Palin who was going to come out for Trump, it still remains that Sarah said "Thank God he's running" and she has never walked that back.

Come to Marlboro TRUMP COUNTRY!
