Chris Jericho said that he’s not political, but that didn’t hold much water when it was discovered that he donated thousands of dollars to Donald Trump’s campaign. It turns out that Le Champion gave way more than first thought.
Brandon Thurston from Wrestlenomics has uncovered a full list of Chris Jericho’s donations. He made them as both Chris Irvine, his real name, and as Chris Jericho. In total, those donations add up to over 38k.
http://FEC.gov shows Chris Irvine of Florida contributed a total of $13,700, to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. and the Republican National Committee in 2020. Chris Jericho of Florida gave an additional $24,660 to Winred and Trump committees, for a total of $38,360.
To whether this should be shared: He’s a public figure, the total amount is more than many Americans’ income in 2020, the records are public, he has a large audience podcast that hosted political guests Trump Jr. and Andrew Yang, a recent ep touched on Covid conspiracies.
Chris Jericho received backlash for having Donald Trump Jr. on his podcast. He later had Andrew Yang on as well. In recent memory, Jericho invited conspiracy theorist David Weiss on his show to discuss COVID-19 and QAnon.
This is an interesting subject, especially since Chris Jericho declared himself as not a political person. We will have to wait and see if the Million Viewer Man has any comment about this new information coming to light.
