This Election Has Already Seen Some Strange Endorsements

It's early in the election cycle, but several high-profile figures have already endorsed candidates for U.S. president.

2016: The Campaign of Strange Endorsements 

For Bernie Sanders: 

"Bernie was a part of fighting against segregation; that was something that really touched my heart and I appreciate it," Lil B said in an interview with CNN

For Bobby Jindal and Scott Walker: 

Kevin Sorbo aka "The TRUE Hercules" on Bobby Jindal: "I like the fact that he's a strong-valued man and he speaks his mind."        

On Scott Walker: "I like Walker. I've met him a couple times and he's a good guy." 

For Donald Trump: 

"You think he's got what it takes?" a reporter asked Tom Brady. 

"I hope so. That'd be great. There'd be a putting green on the White House lawn, I know that," Brady answered

"I'm all for it. He could win. He should win. I'm really close to Donald, the Trump family, and everything I know about him since the day we met is he's a good friend," former NFL player Shawne Merriman said

For Ben Carson: 

"I know you liked Romney in the last election. You got anybody you like now?" Megyn Kelly asked Kid Rock. 

"I like Herm – uhm, the black guy ... Ben Carson," the singer said

For Hillary Clinton: 

"I like Hillary. ... I'm a Democrat, so I would vote Hillary," Ja Rule told Fox Business
