The vitriol that actor and comedian Michael Rapaport has long held for former President Donald Trump has been well-documented and intense. But in a striking shift, Rapaport expressed on his podcast, a sentiment that’s sending shockwaves across the political spectrum.
In a moment of blunt honesty, Rapaport said, “If it’s between Pig D*ck Donald Trump and Smoking Biden, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Voting for Pig Trump is now an option.” He emphasized that he would continue to criticize Trump, but underscored the need to address the current state of affairs under President Joe Biden.
Rapaport’s crass language aside, his change of heart is a glaring indicator of the broader disillusionment with the Biden administration. When even a staunch Trump critic like Rapaport contemplates supporting Trump, it’s a clear sign that Biden is losing ground, not just with moderates but even among those on the left.
So, what’s driving Rapaport’s frustration with Biden? A key issue for Rapaport has been the surge in radical anti-Israel protests and the rising antisemitism within certain segments of the left. He has been particularly vocal against the antisemitism displayed in these protests, expressing outrage over hateful comments and actions.
Rapaport hasn’t held back in calling out members of the Democratic party either. Last month, he fiercely criticized Democratic Representatives Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for their comments on the Israel-Hamas conflict and accused them of spreading misinformation and perpetuating hate against Jews.
But his grievances extend beyond foreign policy issues. Rapaport also touched on domestic economic concerns, like the soaring interest rates making housing and car purchases increasingly unaffordable. He sees these issues as part of the “chaos” engulfing the country and the world under Biden’s watch.

Interestingly, Rapaport’s shift implies a belief that such issues wouldn’t have escalated under Trump’s leadership, suggesting that he acknowledges, albeit grudgingly, a better handling of these matters in the Trump era.
Rapaport’s commentary, especially his openness to supporting Trump, reflects a growing sentiment among Americans who feel let down by the Biden administration. It’s a significant indicator of the political climate, where frustration with the current leadership is pushing even the most unlikely critics to reconsider their stances.
