“Happy Days” is getting political.
Much of the cast of the wholesome ’50s sitcom set in Milwaukee is getting back together for a virtual reunion on behalf of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin — with one notable exception.
Former teen heartthrob Scott Baio, an outspoken Donald Trump supporter, will likely not be throwing in his talents as Chachi for the reunion of the show that ran from 1974 to 1984.
Instead, actor John Stamos, 57, has offered to play the role of Fonzie’s beloved cousin, with Twitter’s approval. The sitcom star in his own right — as hunky Uncle Jesse in “Full House” — threw in his hat late Monday after the reunion announcement.
Baio, 60, clapped back with his own snarky response: “Shouldn’t you be taking care of Aunt Becky?,” he tweeted in an apparent reference to former “Full House” co-star Lori Loughlin’s legal fallout from the ongoing college admissions scandal.
Can I play Chachi? https://t.co/qAa8fIzg4Z
