Is Hollywood secretly on board the Trump train?
Bret Easton Ellis, author of “American Psycho” among other novels and screenplays, said on social media Saturday night that several people he spoke to at a West Hollywood dinner were planning on voting for Trump but wouldn’t admit it publicly.
Just back from a dinner in West Hollywood: shocked the majority of the table was voting for Trump but they would never admit it publicly.

The revelation is backed up by the list of celebrities that have previously expressed support for the Republican candidate.
Names like former NFL star Terrell Owens, Las vegas entertainment legend Wayne Newton and the star of “Our Brand is Crisis” Anthony Mackie.
Many Twitter users didn’t seem too surprised by the revelation.
