At the Grammys, Ricky Rebel wears red lace, with a strong pro-Trump message

When it comes to Trump, it's reasonable to identify his core supporters as people who might called "generic conservatives."  They're the types who quite obviously support America, the Constitution, guns, and God.  What makes Trump special is that his policies also attract people who don't fit the obvious stereotype.  That is, they belong to lifestyle or racial communities that aren't obviously associated with Trump support.

One of those people is Ricky Rebel, a 39-year-old singer, songwriter, dancer, musician, and recording artist.  He's openly gay and considers himself a transgender activist.  He's also a fervent Trump-supporter.  Last year, at the Grammy Awards, he showed up in a dazzling pro-Trump jacket — and even made a video about the way in which Trump represents "alpha energy":

And just in case people didn't get his message last year, Rebel redoubled it this year.  Here's the video of Rebel's costume for Sunday's 62nd annual Grammy Awards show.  Be sure to watch the video long enough to catch the message on his cheeks — and no, not the cheeks on his face:

If you're an entertainer who wants buzz, that's certainly the way to get it.

More seriously, kudos to Rebel for being his own man.  It takes a great deal of courage to live in the entertainment world and to be gay and still be an out-and-proud Trump supporter.  What Rebel did may be vulgar, but it gets people talking and reminds them that, in America, you vote for the candidate who speaks to your values, not for the candidate everyone tells you you have to vote for.
