Sameul “Joe the Plumber” Wurzelbacher is a fan of Donald Trump and believes the businessman’s success with “beautiful women” shows he can do great things for America.

“He’s a winner. He’s made billions. He’s dated beautiful women. His wife is a model. That’s not to sniff at. And a lot of people believe he can bring that kind of success to the White House,” Wurzelbacher told Reuters in an interview gauging his thoughts on the presidential race.

Trump’s unorthodox brand of conservatism doesn’t seem to bother the politically-engaged workingman, but what does anger Wurzelbacher is the Republican establishment’s attacks on The Donald.

“They are not opposing Trump for the American people. They are doing it for their party, and I don’t like that. It’s control, power, greed. Trump scares them,” he said.

He supports Trump’s attacks on political correctness and believes that phenomenon is hurting free speech.

“Political correctness is a huge issue. People are afraid to speak their minds. They are afraid of being labeled a racist or a homophobe,” Wurzelbacher remarked.

However, Joe the Plumber isn’t ready to commit to voting for Trump just yet as he also likes Texas Senator [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore].  But he doesn’t like [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore] and the governor of his home state, John Kasich.

Wurzelbacher is famous for aggressively questioning then-presidential candidate Barack Obama about his tax policy during the 2008 race and became a surrogate for [crscore]John McCain[/crscore]’s campaign soon after the exchange.
