Donald Trump shamelessly tries to piggy back off Ronda Rousey’s popularity


A politician hopping on a bandwagon for his own personal gain? Stop the presses!

Donald Trump claims Ronda Rousey likes him, but it seems that the 2016 Presidential hopeful may not be fully aware how the UFC women’s bantamweight champion really feels about him.

In an interview with CNN, the host of the reality TV show The Apprentice said Rousey is a great example of women being good fighters. He then dropped the bombshell of a claim about the most dominant female MMA fighter in the world.

“Some of them are really, really good. I’ll tell you what, I know some woman that are just — Ronda Rousey is an example, who likes me. I’d take her on my side as a fighter.”

But while Trump claims to be liked by the champ, Rousey’s comments to the very same TV station suggest otherwise.

“I mean, I wouldn’t vote for him. I just really wouldn’t trust the guy with running my country, that’s all. … I’m not really going to get into specifics of it, but, I mean, I don’t want a reality TV star to be running my country.”

Nice try, Donald.
