During an appearance on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” actor Scott Baio told host Jeanine Pirro exactly how Donald Trump approached him to speak at the Republican national convention this week.

The “Happy Days” and “Charles In Charge” star said he was at a fundraiser when the presumptive Republican presidential nominee asked him to speak at the convention.

“It’s been fantastic, Judge. It started with you,” he said about his appearance on her show in March where he first endorsed Trump. “From that, I’ve gotten so much time to talk about Donald Trump, a man that I believe in, and I’ve done I don’t know how many interviews, and radio, and print, and things like that.

“I was at a fundraiser for Mr. Trump the other night with my wife, and he invited me to speak at the convention—which was completely unexpected and out of left field,” he said. “I mean, he had given a speech, and he was walking out, and I looked at him, and I said, ‘Mr. Trump, Scott Baio…,’ and he said, ‘Oh my god!’ And he said to me, ‘Do you want to speak?’ and I said, ‘Here?’ and he goes, ‘No, no, at the convention!’ And I went, ‘Ugh… o…okay,’ and we went inside the house where the fundraiser was.”

Since his first appearance with Pirro, Baio has been outspoken in his support of Trump. Including explaining his reasons for supporting Trump on “Cashin’ In” and a trip to Starbucks where he gave the barista fits because she couldn’t say the name, Trump.

While many are excited that the actor will be speaking at the convention on Monday, others went on the attack.
