Dennis Quaid Fires Back After Participating in Trump's COVID-19 Ad: 'It Was in No Way Political'

Dennis Quaid is firing back at reports that he took part in a $300 million Donald Trump ad about the Coronavirus pandemic.

The campaign is reportedly to help the country “defeat despair” (and it’s important to mention that Dennis did praise Trump‘s response to the pandemic months ago).

Amid the backlash, Dennis took to Instagram to record a video explaining.

“It was in no way political,” Dennis said, adding he was not paid for his involvement. “I did a PSA for Dr. Anthony Fauci and he was kind enough to grant me an interview as well, and the interview and the PSA were about raising awareness of COVID-19 and what we can still do to prevent lives being lost to this terrible, terrible virus. It was about the importance of wearing a mask and social distancing and it was in no way political. In fact, Dr. Anthony Fauci and I both talked about it before that it was not to be political, as the virus is not political.”

Dennis captioned his video, “NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPOLITICIZED”

Donald Trump seems to have some celebrity support in the 2020 election.
