EXCLUSIVE: Gay Porn Icon and HBO Star Colby Keller – I Voted For Trump, But Trump’s Falling Apart And It’s Glorious

While there was a lot of tension leading up to the election- and after- as those who voted for President Donald Trump and those who voted for Hillary Clinton were constantly fighting and at odds. While a lot of that still hasn’t calmed down, when you learned who supported which candidate, there were definitely some interesting surprises. One of the bigger surprises to note was when gay porn icon and HBO’s High Maintenance star Colby Keller announced he was voting for Trump.

We spoke to Keller about what made him want to support Trump, what his thoughts on Trump are now that he’s President, and more.

When asked what made him want to support Trump in the first place, Keller shared, Accelerationism.  I do not support Trump.  I voted for him. Many liberals do not support Hillary Clinton, but they voted for her. America was presented with two terrible choices and Trump was the more likely candidate to crash and burn so that we could start over sooner.”

As we noted, it was surprising to hear Keller would vote for Trump, especially given his jobs. When we asked if he felt like his choice was contradictory, he told us, Sex workers, socialists and homosexuals are pretty equally vilified. This is not new. The Left is still blamed by liberals for the Bush II election, as opposed to voting irregularities or an interventionist Supreme Court.  I wasn’t surprised that the neoliberals pointed fingers at the Left in anticipation of/after this election.  And I have always been a Leftist so my political leanings only came as a surprise to people who haven’t really read anything I’ve written or heard interviews I’ve given.”

“Before the election,” he continued, “some people liked to discredit me because of my line of work or for identifying as an artist, while others thought a ‘thinking person’s porn star’ made for an interesting headline. As the election loomed large and especially after the massive Democratic Party failure, many people were looking for scapegoats towards which they could direct their anger. The ‘shut up, you stupid socialist porn star’ headline seemed to garner the most clicks on these sites so I’ve seen a lot of that lately.  It’s a natural response and not one that has surprised me. Critiquing the self is one of the hardest things we can do.”

“Ironically,” he added, “I doubt many people outside of the fashion industry would have paid attention to my Office interview if it hadn’t been for the click-bait sites creating salacious and misleading headlines without any meat.”

Being in the industry he’s in, we couldn’t help asking what his thoughts are on Trump’s LGBTQ stance and what the LGBTQ community might be missing in regards to Trump.

“I think the LGBTQ community knows exactly what Trump’s LGBT platform is,” Keller detailed. “He will try to stay as even keeled as he can to not piss off pro-LGBT businesses and LGBT business leaders while still catering to social conservatives by supporting efforts to roll back laws like trans bathroom rights and supporting ‘religious freedom’ laws that are considered by many Americans to be more controversial and will bring about more press.”

Of note, we recalled that early on in the election Keller was supportive of Bernie Sanders. We were curious what made him switch from Sanders to Trump, as the choice seemed a bit of a 180 degree turn.

“The Democratic primary was stolen from the people by corporate interests funding the Democratic primary,” he shared. “ How could I possibly support them after that?  The Democratic Party literally moved backwards eights years, not to mention Obama’s problematic relationship to increased wealth inequality during his tenure.  Secretary Clinton ran the same campaign that lost the primary to a centrist Obama in 2008 and should have lost this race had it not been for elites engineering the results against progress, change and the will of an increasingly informed electorate.”

“Capitalism is itself a state of war between the classes and Secretary Clinton campaigned on the premise that you could be the champion of socially progressive identity politics and still protect the billionaire class,” Keller added. “You have to pick sides and she didn’t.  To pretend that virtuous identity politics are somehow congruous with business interests that only tolerate them if they help turn a profit is foolish. The Democratic Party has become a party of big business pretending to be otherwise by exploiting the voices of those most vulnerable to the endorse the evils of unbridled capitalism. Sanders tried to change this and Secretary Clinton had no designs on shaking up the status quo.”

 We wrapped our conversation with Keller with asking him how he thinks Trump’s doing, now that he’s been in office for a few weeks.

“He’s falling apart at the seems,” Keller wrapped with stating, “and it’s glorious.”

We really enjoyed our extensive conversation with Keller, and think it’s definitely worth noting this man is much more than a “porn star.”  While we already knew this about Keller, it was reiterated from our talk with him that there are many more layers to this artist, and we can’t wait to hear more from him in the future.
