Presidential candidate Donald Trump may be able to count on the support of celebrities Kirstie Alley, Jon Voight and, er, Mrs Trump, but there’s one person who won’t be dropping his name in the ballot box in November, and that’s Will Smith.

The ‘Suicide Squad’ star was almost spitting with rage when he told news.com.au that he would throw his son out of the house if he used the same derogatory remarks about women as those voiced by the ginger-quiffed one.

“For a man to be able to publicly refer to a woman as a fat pig, that makes me teary. And for people to applaud, that is absolutely f**king insanity to me,” he said.

Will Smith pulls no punches when it comes to his reaction to Donald Trump

“My grandmother would have smacked my teeth out of my head if I had referred to a woman as a fat pig. And I cannot understand how people can clap for that. It’s absolutely collective insanity,” he says, shaking his head.

“If one of my sons, I am getting furious just thinking about it, if one of my sons said that in a public place, they couldn’t even live in my house anymore.”

Will Smith reveals he’s still having trouble processing that Trump’s campaign has come this far.

“For me, deep down in my heart, I believe that America won’t and we can’t (elect Mr Trump). Of all the things he has said, and we could go through the laundry list, that was the one that was such an absolute illustration of a darkness of his soul. I just cannot figure out how people can clap for that.”

Will Smith previously told CBS news that Trump’s “crazy” comments suggesting the US should ban all Muslims from entering the country, may “force” him to run for office himself.
