Former viral sensation and aspiring heavy metal star Balloon Boy (otherwise known as Falcon Heene) has officially announced his endorsement of Donald J. Trump in an email to Gawker.

When asked who Balloon Boy might be eyeing for the White House in 2016, his father, Richard Heene, wrote:

Falcon said Donald Trump. He is a get it done guy while all of the other candidates will sit around doing nothing and collect a paycheck. Trump is a businessman and he will run the U.S. that way. Go check out Donald Trumps Victory Song called “Hellyeah!”…

With the endorsement, Balloon Boy joins the ranks of Sarah Palin, Jerry Falwell, Jr., and John Rocker. We’ve reached out to Trump for comment on what’s sure to be a major jolt to the former viral hoax voter base and will update if and when we hear back.
