"To all the women and all the men with daughters and sisters and mothers, everybody, no matter how you identify, now is your chance to vote against Donald Trump, a man who believes his fame gives him the right to grab one of your daughters or sisters or mothers or wives by any part of their bodies," she said at a rally. "Vote for Joe. He's a good person. Thank you."

The former NFL quarterback and reality star re-posted the president, who had posted a statement from Nicklaus. 

Nicklaus wrote, in part, "I have had the privilege over the last 3½ years to get to know our current President a little more as his term has progressed," he continued. "I have been very disappointed in what he's had to put up with from many directions, but with that, I have seen a resolve and a determination to do the right thing for our country."

Brett Favre, another former NFL quarterback, has also voiced his support for Trump.

Favre tweeted about voting for Trump on October 30. "My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military. In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump," the former Green Bay Packer wrote.

On Instagram, Jennifer Aniston said she voted for Biden, and she cautioned her followers against voting for Kanye West.

Aniston posted a photo on Instagram of herself in a mask casting her vote at a ballot drop box in California.

The "Morning Show" star began her post saying, "#IVOTED for @joebiden and @kamalaharris. I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early. I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can't do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science... too many people have died."

"PS — It's not funny to vote for Kanye. I don't know how else to say it. Please be responsible," she concluded.

Brad Pitt also officially endorsed Biden.

Pitt's voice was heard in an ad aired during the 2020 World Series. 

"America is a place for everyone — those who chose this county, those who fought for it — some Republicans, some Democrats, and most, just somewhere in between, all looking for the same thing: Someone who understands their hopes, their dreams, their pain, to listen, to bring people together. To get up every day and work to make life better for families like yours. To look you in the eye, treat you with respect, and tell you the truth. To work just as hard for the people who voted for him as those who didn't. To be a president for all Americans," the Oscar winner can be heard saying over footage of Biden speaking with Americans.

Kid Rock co-hosted a Trump rally in his home state of Michigan in September.

The "Gucci Gang" rapper posted a picture showing him with the president on Instagram in October, captioning it "THE DAY I MET TRUMP #trump202022020."

He then posted an expletive-filled video explaining why he is supporting Trump: "All I gotta say is Trump 2020 b----" he said. "F--- I look like paying a extra 33 is tax for Biden, b----- a-- n----. F--- sleepy Joe n— Trump 2020 b-----."

The day before Election Day, Trump even called Lil Pump on stage at a rally — though he mistakenly called him "Little Pimp."

Maren Morris, who performed at a Democratic "I Will Vote" fundraiser, said she voted early for Biden.

"I am a proud Texan now living in Nashville, Tennessee. Coming from a Southern family with a conservative background, throughout my childhood, I was always taught to treat people with respect and dignity, no matter their race, their religion, their sexual orientation, and yes, even their political party," she said in an Instagram video. "But like a lot of us, I've been in perpetual shock watching what's happened to our country these last few years. We've been divided and pitted against one another. We've seen the forces of hatred, not just reserved for the awkward Thanksgiving dinner conversation with a crazy relative once a year, but out in the open, encouraged and supported by the President of the United States."

"I voted early for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and for Democrats down the ticket here in Tennessee because we need leadership that is kind, compassionate and that cares," she continued.

"It's time we tell someone that he's fired," Morris said, in a reference to Trump's catchphrase on "The Apprentice."

Tom Hanks appeared in a Biden fundraiser this summer.

Hanks called the former vice president, "My pal Joe," and spoke about how the president's handling of the coronavirus pandemic was one of the largest issues he had with him. "There is such a confluence of issues, so many crises that are landing in one time, certainly the economic fallout that has come about because of a brand of fear and a response to a virus that has already killed close to 200,000 Americans, and many more around the world."

He added, "You don't have to be Superman to fight for truth, justice and the American way."

 

After staying quiet in 2016, Taylor Swift officially endorsed Biden with a post on Instagram.

Swift caught a lot of heat for not disclosing her political views in 2016, a subject that was well-documented during "Miss Americana."

This year, Swift posted an Instagram showing her with custom Biden/Harris cookies, along with a link to an article in V Magazine about why she will be voting for Biden

"The change we need most is to elect a president who recognizes that people of color deserve to feel safe and represented, that women deserve the right to choose what happens to their bodies, and that the LGBTQIA+ community deserves to be acknowledged and included. Everyone deserves a government that takes global health risks seriously and puts the lives of its people first. The only way we can begin to make things better is to choose leaders who are willing to face these issues and find ways to work through them," she told V. "I will proudly vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in this year's presidential election. Under their leadership, I believe America has a chance to start the healing process it so desperately needs," she continued.

Jennifer Lawrence also officially endorsed Biden in V Magazine.

"Voting is the foundation of our democracy and our freedom. And I would consider this upcoming election the most consequential of our lifetime. I'm voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this year because Donald Trump has and will continue to put himself before the safety and well-being of America. He does not represent my values as an American, and most importantly as a human being," she told V.

Jon Voight, who was presented with the National Medal of Arts by Trump in 2019, has supported the president for years.

Most recently, he shared a video on his Twitter account calling Vice President Biden "evil."

"Trump must win — he's real. He will bring back the people's trusts. These leftists are not for the American people. It's the biggest cover-up ever," he continued.

Kirstie Alley recently made headlines for her support of Trump.

In October, Alley tweeted, "I'm voting for @realDonaldTrump because he's NOT a politician. I voted for him 4 years ago for this reason and shall vote for him again for this reason. He gets things done quickly and he will turn the economy around quickly. There you have it folks there you have it."

Stacey Dash has both "#MAGA" and "#WomenForTrump" in her Twitter bio.

The "Clueless" star also supported Trump in 2016, and even hoped for his endorsement when she was running for Congress in 2018, though she eventually dropped out.

Dash used to be a Democrat, according to the Guardian, but switched parties after 2008 when, in her words, she realized President Obama was a "socialist" and a "divider."

Mindy Kaling has been vocally supporting Senator Kamala Harris on Instagram.

The Food Network chef, who also worked in Jimmy Carter's administration, interviewed Jill Biden for the fundraiser

Although she is normally apolitical, Garten decided to speak out this year.

"I'm not political," she told People. "I think if you research you'll find I've supported political programs privately but I've never been really public about it — but sometimes you just have to do it."

"As a country, we need to pull this together," she continued. "We need to stop being divisive and be positive and supportive and collaborative. [Biden] is a guy who's been in Congress for decades and has a reputation for working across the aisle, and I think that's exactly what we need right now."

Mariska Hargitay and Biden have been friendly since he appeared on an episode of "Law and Order: SVU."

The "SVU" star again supported him in 2020 with a cameo during the Democratic National Convention.

Hargitay said that she and Biden worked together to tackle the immense backlog of rape kits in the US, which sends a "vital message to survivors that what happened to them matters," the New York Post reported.

She has also praised his work to pass the Violence Against Women Act in the '90s.

Keegan-Michael Key endorsed Biden back in March.

50 Cent has tweeted multiple times in the last few days about his choice to vote for Trump. 

"WHAT THE [F---]! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT, [F---] NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don't care Trump doesn't like black people 62% are you out of ya f------ mind," the rapper tweeted on October 19 alongside a screenshot of Biden's tax plan which showed that, in New York, the highest tax rate would be 62%.

Gaffigan broke his political silence after he watched the president's speech at the RNC. He tweeted multiple times about his dislike for Trump, and he later went on to support Biden.

On Facebook, he shared a story about an event he planned for Georgetown University in 2019. "I organized the event with my good friend & classmate @emilychennyc. Emily and I were thinking of ideas on how to make the event even more special. Emily mentioned she could maybe get a video from @joebiden. I asked 'Did Biden go to Georgetown?' She replied, 'No, but this is the kind of thing Joe Biden would care about.' Well, to my surprise Joe gave us a video. We started the show with Joe's video and he reminded everyone in the audience that we should look out for our fellow citizens. It set the tone for an incredible show. This American pin clip reminded me of Joe's kindness and generosity toward our event and GSP. This country would be lucky to be led by a man like @joebiden. Please vote," Gaffigan wrote.

Cher headlined an LGBTQ+ fundraiser for Biden's campaign that raised almost $2 million in September.

The iconic popstar has always been politically outspoken. During the fundraiser, Cher recalled the first time she met Biden in 2006.

"I saw a speech Joe had given and it was love at first speech. So I went to his office to grill him and I asked him really pointed questions and unlike most politicians, Joe actually listened to me and cared (about) what I had to say. He was honest and kind and smart," she said, according to CBS. She also called him "smart enough, he's kind enough, he's strong enough."

"I said, sink or swim, I'm with him, I'm ridin' with Biden. It sounds corny but that's what I said," Cher continued.

Dean Cain voted for Trump in 2016 and has pledged to do so again.

The former Superman has identified as an Independent, and told the Washington Post in 2018 that he had voted for Al Gore and Bill Clinton. "I don't ever vote party lines ... I vote candidates and I vote issues," Cain said.

"Oh, I'm backing the president for sure. I don't like a single Democratic candidate. I mean Pete Buttigieg is an interesting guy and he's smart and he's eloquent, but when you start getting into his economic philosophies and that whole Marxist push — no, I'm not cool with that," he continued, when asked he would support in 2020.

Ted Nugent has said that "Donald Trump was sent here by God."

He added, on an episode of the "Pat's Soundbytes Unplugged" podcast, "I think he's the greatest president in the history of America. I think he's the greatest leader in the history of the human experience."

Dwayne Johnson made the first presidential endorsement of his career this year when he backed Biden.

Johnson interviewed both Biden and Harris for his Instagram account. He posted the video in September.

He captioned the video, "As a political independent and centrist for many years, I've voted for Democrats in the past and as well as Republican. In this critical election, I believe Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the best to lead our country, and as my first ever (public) Presidential endorsement, I proudly endorse them for the presidential office of our United States."

Sam Elliott narrated an ad for the Biden campaign in October.

The ad aired during game one of the 2020 World Series.

"There is only one America. No Democratic rivers. No Republican mountains. Just this great land, and all that's possible on it with a fresh start. Cures we could find. Futures we can shape. Work to reward. Dignity to protect. There is so much we can do, if we choose to take on problems, and not each other. And choose a president who brings out our best. Joe Biden doesn't need everyone in this country to always agree. Just to agree we all love this country, and go from there," he says in the ad.

Isaiah Washington revealed he was a Trump supporter in 2019.

"You got a lot of conservative or centric libertarian-minded people that really care about other people but they are terrified to come out of the closet and say anything that's not in line with the Democratic party," the actor said on the Fox Nation show "Nuff Said." He cited Trump's policies as his reason for supporting him, specifically his policies regarding the Black community.

Now, Washington has his own show on Fox Nation, "Kitchen Talk."

Ross moderated the second night of the convention, and cited Biden's choice of running mate, Harris, as a real "turning point" in American history and part of the reason she supported his candidacy.

"As a Black woman, I find myself at a crucial intersection in American politics. For far too long, Black female leadership ... has been utilized without being acknowledged or valued, but we are turning the tide. Hello, Kamala," she said.

Mark Cuban officially endorsed Biden during an appearance on Fox News.

The "Shark Tank" star told Sean Hannity he was voting for Biden. "The one event in the White House that Joe Biden put on and spoke about his support for entrepreneurship is one more event than he [Trump] has ever done for entrepreneurs in the White House or anywhere else," he said. 

"Donald Trump doesn't want to run a country, he wants to run a campaign. Joe Biden actually wants to run a country," he continued.

In April, Howard Stern said he was "all in on Joe Biden."

Stern made this announcement on his radio show in April after Trump said that ultraviolet light could potentially cure COVID-19 — Trump later said he was being sarcastic.

"I am all in on Joe Biden," Stern said. "You see the wall that's right next to you, I'll vote for the wall over a guy who tells me that I should pour Clorox into my mouth. Listen, I think we are in deep s---. I think we could have been ahead of this curve."

Jon Stewart explained to Stephen Colbert how he learned to like Biden as a candidate.

"Biden was not my guy. Wasn't even in the top four or five. I was more of a Sanders, Warren [supporter]," he said in a June appearance on "The Late Show."

"I've recently been thinking about something and that is, we are a country in terrible anguish right now. We are in pain," he continued. "'American exceptionalism' is not a title that you wear like you were Miss America in 1937 and you'll always be Miss America. It takes effort and work to maintain. If you treat it like a fait accompli, it will erode and you will lose it. We are seeing that erosion, and we are fearful and we are angry and we are in pain. When I see Biden, past the shtick, I see a guy who knows what loss is, who knows grief."
