When you're a D-list star and the paparazzi have moved on, there's no faster way to make America pay attention to you again than to endorse a fascist for President. And no, we're not talking about Sarah Palin.

Rapper Chingy, a man who clearly knows a thing or two about business if his stellar and still super-relevant career is any indication [EDITOR'S NOTE: FACT-CHECK THIS], has decided to throw his star power behind angry orange Mr. Potatohead look-alike and presidential hopeful Donald Trump.

The St. Louis rapper, best-known for his 2003 hits "Right Thurr" and "Holidae Inn," took to Twitter today to show support for Trump's campaign, tweeting "Politics vs society. People should innerstand that politics is a business jus like the job you work at. I vote for @realDonaldTrump 'YEP' 3," a bold statement which is, almost, an English sentence.

But, uh, the Twitter-verse didn't exactly take to kindly to it.

In fact, Chingy was quickly left trying to justify his statement ....
.. and then claiming it was all taken out of context. #LiveofACeleb, don't you know?

Next up: He's gonna say his phone was hacked. #LiveofACeleb and all. 

But we have to wonder: What excuse does Sarah Palin have?
