Brickey Pearce, a former child artist of the 1996 kiddie comedy “First Kid”, who grew up to become a cryptocurrency billionaire, is aggressively advancing to appear in the 2020 presidential race and calls himself President Trump and Is ranked as an independent third party alternative to. Joe Biden.
Pierce’s five-year run on the big screen included Giggs in the first two “The Mighty Duck” films with Emilio Estevez and in “First Kid” with Sinabad as the son of a president. And he landed some rave reviews.
“Pierce excels in his first major film role,” Leonard Culdi wrote in his Variety Criticism of “First Kid”. “He is completely focused as an artist, capturing the complexity of his character with a deceptive simplicity that one rarely sees in kidnappers.”
That junior political comedy brought Pearce what he was expecting was just his first taste of DC politics.
“Bill Clinton had a cameo in the film and Sunny Bono had a cameo and I had to spend some time in the Oval Office,” Pierce recalled.
Pierce is still in the comedy Sinabad with his odd-duet partner Pulse, who played his Secret Service agent and the two recit often.
“He is a wonderful person. We have been in contact for years. He is very interested in technology and innovation. We are probably screening ‘First Kid’ in New York and Los Angeles and DC with some cast and crew.
After acting, Pierce joined bitcoin, internet gaming and other tech ventures where he made his fortune. Now the 39-year-old single father of two daughters, with two different women, is once again going into the presidential election campaign.
“Whether we go left or right, it doesn’t feel like we’re making progress or moving forward as a country. We need … to change the game. It’s upgrading America’s operating system It’s time to do it. America 2.0, “Pearce told The Post, stating that neither Trump or Biden” have a true understanding of technology. ”
“I think neither candidate really connects with younger generations,” Pierce said. “I am not hearing from any real-vision candidate. I’m not listening to anything that really inspires me. I am hearing a lot of negativity. ”
Pierce’s personal cash, however, tells a different story. He donated more than $ 100,000 to Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee in August 2019, FEC Records show. Pierce said the money was spent so he could lobby the president about Puerto Rican relief issues that were at dinner with him at the home of hedge fund billionaire John Paulson.
“It was something done once with a purpose,” he said emphatically, explaining the six-figure donation.
Pierce says he does not expect to win, but rather jumps a viable, national third-party movement.
“In the year 2020, it is not our goal to win the general election. Our goal is to do the ground work for the future. I … turn 40 in November. I am in it for at least the next 40 years. Time is on my side, ”he said.
Still the Oval Office is not completely out of sight. Pierce’s upstart plan has forced him to die aggressively to win some states, thus preventing any candidate from gaining the 270 electoral votes needed to become president. A bitterly divided House of Representatives then elects him as a compromise candidate, the plan is made.
Pierce, who announced his candidacy on July 4 – the same day Kanye West – already outperformed the rapper on several key metrics. He is for another five in a plan to work on ballots in at least 15 states. Kanye has made it in at least 12 states – but was removed from the ballot in Ohio, Arizona and Virginia. Pearce would appear on the New York ballot as a candidate for the Independence Party – which supported him last month.
According to FEC filings, Pierce has started pouring over $ 1.2 million of his own money into the campaign, and says a minimum of $ 3.5 million has already been injected. He refused to offer a ceiling on what he spent, saying only that he was “prepared to invest heavily.”
