Shorter Dem plan for 2018: We corralled every celebrity we could think of, in 2016. And got beaten anyway. . So, let’s try the same failed strategy, again. Yee-haw!
Hillary Clinton’s celebrity-backed White House bid in 2016 was an epic failure, so Democrats are doubling down and turning to Hollywood for help to persuaded voters heading to the polls in November.
The Democratic National Committee and Democratic members of Congress are teaming with celebrities to craft campaign messages to win over the voters in middle America.
DNC Chairman Tom Perez and top Democrats have met with groups of Hollywood writers, producers, and actors to work on upcoming elections….
David Mandel, executive producer of the HBO Emmy-winning comedy series Veep, did note that maybe Hollywood isn’t the best messenger.
“Look, the world knows they don’t necessarily need Hollywood telling people what to do,” Mandel told Politico. “I have no desire to tell people what to do.”
But, the producer added, “One thing I think we are pretty good at is getting the word out on something.”….
Um, ok… then go for it.
