Former porn star and Cruz ad actress endorses Trump

March 8, 2016

A former softcore  porn star who recently appeared in a pro-Ted Cruz advertisement has endorsed Donald Trump, according to Politico.

“I like what he stands for,” Amy Lindsay reportedly said in an interview with CNN. “He’s the front-runner but he’s also kind of — especially in this last week or so become kind of an underdog,” she said.

While the Cruz campaign likely does not lament the missed endorsement – the campaign pulled the ad spot following the revelation that Lindsay had appeared in a number of adult films prior to starring in the ad – additional praise to his biggest rival for the party’s nomination certainly isn’t good for Cruz, who currently trails Trump nationally by 20 points.

Lindsay, following the ad pull, had been unsparing in her criticism of the Texas senator, saying she was disappointed by the campaign’s decision to pull the ad.

Since then, her Twitter feed has hinted at a possible affinity for the billionaire former reality TV star even before Monday’s endorsement, often tweeting and re-tweeting messages favorable to Trump.

In addition to scoring an acting credit in the Cruz ad, Lindsay’s Internet Movie Database page boasts such credits as:  “Celebrity Sex Tape,” “Milf,” “The Erotic Traveler,” as well as a onetime appearance on the TV series “Star Trek: Voyager.”
