Honey cake is not the most popular dessert in America, but Fox Sports commentator Jason Whitlock isn’t going to eat it.
“I have a cake in my kitchen,” Whitlock said, referring to the “Muppet Cake” dessert that’s been on the menu for years.
“But I don’t want a Trump cake.”
The “Muppets” star said he’s a huge fan of President Donald Trump, who he described as a good friend and supporter.
“You don’t need to get a cake,” he said.
“You don [need] a cake that looks good.
I don [want] a president who makes a cake for a big dinner.
That’s not me.
I’m a huge supporter of President Trump, I’m his biggest supporter, and that’s all I want.”
In recent weeks, Trump has been a focus of the “Hamilton” cast members.
“He’s a friend, a great guy.
I know that a lot of people say that,” “Hamilton’s” Muppets’ creator Lin-Manuel Miranda said during a Q&A on Sunday.
“And so I just feel like, you know, the guy is really, really smart and he’s been doing a lot to try and bring people together.”
Trump, Miranda added, “has been really doing a good job, in a way.”
“I want to thank Donald Trump for all the jobs that he’s done,” Miranda said.
But, the former “Mork and Mindy” star, who also appeared on “The Daily Show” on Friday, didn’t seem to be a fan.
“It’s not that I’m not a big fan of Donald Trump.
I do have a lot in common with him, which is that I’ve always had a problem with political correctness,” he told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday.
“If you look at history, the last few decades, you see a lot more hate, more racism, a lot less tolerance for people who are different than you, or people who believe differently than you.”
“The truth is, there’s more hatred, a little bit more bigotry, and a little more racism.
I’ve had to learn that a long time ago,” he added.
Whitlock, who grew up in Indiana and is a longtime resident of Hollywood, said he didn’t think Trump was a fan either of “Hamilton.”
“He’s kind of like a very, very popular guy,” Whitock said of the president.
“The fact that I feel like he’s kind, and he speaks like him, I think that’s really good for him.”
In an interview with the New York Times, Miranda defended Trump, saying that the president is “really good for the country” and that “he’s got to have a little patience with the critics.”
“In a country that’s a democracy, we have to be able to express our views,” Miranda told the Times.
“It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to have this job.”
Miranda added that he thinks the president’s administration is “a success” for “Hamilton,” but he also has some concerns about Trump’s policies.
“I do have concerns about a lot things that he said,” Miranda, who was a part of the cast of “Mankoff,” told the New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin.
“That’s his problem.
He can’t control the media, but he can control his base.
So, if you have a base that’s not willing to take responsibility for its own actions, that’s the problem.”
Whitlock and Miranda also appeared to disagree about whether Trump was actually a “good man.”
“You have to wonder why he [has] done this,” Miranda quipped.
“Why does he want to do this?
Why does he do this?””
It just seems like a waste of time,” he continued.
“We’re not going to give it a second thought.”
