From Oprah Winfrey to Ben Affleck, celebrities aren't shy when it comes to turning their political views into candidate endorsements. Now, even Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is jumping in to snatch a piece of the political pie.
When I sat down with the pint-sized reality star at her press conference announcing the launch of Team Snooki Boxing, she expressed a certain disdain for the candidates currently in the presidential race. However, she did say there was one man she would vote for.
"I thought Trump was gonna run," Snooki pondered. "But he's not, right? I would endorse him and vote for him."
Beyond the future of the American empire, Snooki was much more interested in chatting about the expansion of her own empire, starting with the boxing team she is currently promoting. Snooki's guys -- Hyland brothers Patrick, Eddie and Paul -- are set to square off in Atlantic City at the end of the month.
What qualifies Snooki to promote boxing? The same thing that qualifies her to write a bestselling book or design a clothing line. She's famous-ish.
"I do love the movie 'Rocky' and I see myself as a business woman and want to get involved in everything I can," Snooki told me on Thursday at McFadden's bar in Manhattan. "Boxing is just another thing I am excited to learn about and get into."
Sounds like this mini orange Donald Trump has been paying attention to the mogul's lessons. But despite her antics on the Shore, Snooki claims to be an amateur when it comes to throwing punches.
"I'm training to learn boxing but I'm not going to box -- I don't want to mess up my pretty face," Snooki said. "I don't know how to fight. All I know how to do is pull hair. I would rather not fight. I want to stay away from violence. I would rather scream than fight."
