It looks like the DNC is getting some extra assistance from Hollywood — which also helped during such notorious Dem triumphs as Hillary Clinton’s campaign and historic Republican gains at state and national levels during Obama’s presidency — in order to try and save the party’s hopes and dreams of re-taking Congress:
The Democratic National Committee and members of Congress are turning to Hollywood for help with voter turnout and messaging ahead of the midterm elections and 2020 presidential campaign, quietly consulting with a group of actors, writers and producers here.
DNC Chairman Tom Perez, several House members and other top elected officials have already met with the group, formed by members of the entertainment industry in the wake of the 2016 election, that participants liken to a TV writers’ room, complete with producers of such programs as “Veep.” The existence of the group and details of the meetings have not been previously reported.
At the Tony Awards, Robert DeNiro got the Hollywood push to help get more Dems elected in November off to a rousing start… for Republicans:
Fortunately Dems don’t understand how much “flyover country” can’t stand Hollywood, and I won’t be surprised to see that clip used in one of Trump’s re-election ads in 2020.
