Boy bye! Star Jones used her time on the Democratic National Convention stage to share her passionate support for Hillary Clinton, and to throw some ‘shade’ at her former ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ boss Donald Trump! We have all the details right here.
“Nobody else in the race has the same unique connection to women, children, families, and our day-to-day challenges,” said Star Jones about Hillary Clinton at the DNC on July 27. “That’s very different from some very loud, obnoxious, race-baiting folks on the other side who I also know.” If there was any question that she was hating on Donald Trump with her statement, she followed it up with some major side-eye and said “Shade! Boy bye!”
As far back at 2011, Star said “absolutely not” when asked if she would vote for The Donald if he ever ran for office. “I’m a Democrat, I would never vote for a Republican,” she said to E!, adding, “When it comes to business, Mr. Trump is the best at what he does. He should stay in his lane.” Earlier the same year, Star had been a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice.
Donald reminded her of this fact in 2012 when Star supported President Obama on Twitter after he stood up against Donald’s demands to see his college transcripts. “Admit it…Pure Class. Don’t Hate…APPRECIATE!>Barack #Obama Laughs Off Feud With Donald Trump On The Tonight Show,” tweeted Star.
Donald said that when Star “begged me to put her on The Apprentice she was ‘professionally dead.’ I saved her tiny career — now she knocks my offer! I defended @StarJonesEsq when she lied about her stomach operation to lose weight. I defended @StarJonesEsq against @NeNeLeakes on The Apprentice when @NeNeLeakes was making a fool out of her — but my loyalty was not rewarded. I should have let @NeNeLeakes finish the job.” Yikes! We’re sure he’s going to really hate her most recent statement.
