'Sex and the City' alum Chris Noth says there's 'no way' Mr. Big would have been a Trump supporter

Cynthia Nixon isn’t the only Sex and the City star who is wading into politics.

While the real-life Miranda campaigns to be governor of New York, former co-star Chris Noth is clearing up some assumptions about his own SATC character’s political leanings. Noth famously played Mr. Big, Carrie Bradshaw’s wealthy on-off lover and eventual husband, on the HBO series and its two film adaptations.

On Thursday the actor posted an Instagram that shows him proudly holding up a mug emblazoned with an image of the Kehinde Wiley presidential portrait of Barack Obama.

“Having a cup of coffee with my favorite President!” he captioned the pic, which got a “like” from Carrie herself, Sarah Jessica Parker. “Boy do I miss him!!!”


While the 63-year-old star is Team Obama, one fan speculated that Mr. Big “probably would’ve voted for Trump though.”

Noth wasted no time in putting that rumor to rest.

“No way,” he shot back.

Fans backed him up.

“He was a jerk, but not at that level,” read one comment.

“I doubt it,” added another commenter. “He’s smarter than voting for that orange wonder!”

“Mr. Big probably knew Trump, so like most New Yorkers would not have voted for [him],” theorized one fan. “He didn’t need the tax break.”

One follower disagreed, based on a pivotal plot point in the first SATC film.

“I’m going to be honest,” she wrote. “Mr. Big would have done a party vote and voted for Trump. Y’all know I’m not lying. He. Stood. Carrie. Up. At. The. Wedding. Now y’all know Mr. Big would not have voted a second term though.”

Barring a third film, we’ll probably never know for sure where this rich, white, middle-aged male Lothario might have swung his support. It is worth noting that Trump did technically receive the SATC seal of approval. The future POTUS flirted with Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) in a Season 2 scene back in 1999.
