Many Hollywood celebrities, appalled by President Trump, are ready to dive into the midterm elections. But there’s also a sense of caution, and in some cases retreat, after their enormous support failed to push Hillary Clinton over the finish line in 2016.
Sunday marked 100 days until Election Day, and at least one expert on the entertainment industry and politics says the next three months could see an explosion of celebrity involvement.
The article goes on to state the following:
The money is already pouring in. “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane donated an eye-popping $2 million to the Senate Majority PAC, which has ties to Democratic leadership, in April. “Desperate Housewives” alum Eva Longoria gave $10,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in May. And a number of entertainers, including Will Ferrell, Kate Capshaw and Michael Douglas, have donated to Sen. Sherrod Brown’s (D-Ohio) re-election bid.
Actor John Leguizamo and Broadway star Audra McDonald have both given money to Democrat Andrew Janz’s campaign, who’s running to unseat Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), while “West Wing” alum Bradley Whitford gave thousands to Abby Finkenauer’s House bid. Finkenauer’s midterm opponent, Rep. Rod Blum (R-Iowa), is considered a top target for Democrats.
The report also stated:
Already, a who’s who of Hollywood have joined former first lady Michelle Obama in a nonpartisan, get-out-the-vote push. Launched earlier this month, the non-profit effort, “When We All Vote,” aims to “spark a conversation about our rights and responsibilities in shaping our democracy.” It features a bevy of famous faces, including actor Tom Hanks, country music stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, singer Janelle Monae and NBA star Chris Paul.
Actress Michelle Monaghan says she is already hearing more entertainment industry vets speaking out.
“I think they are,” the “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” star said of her colleagues in Hollywood. “I think they are more vocal.”
“I think every American citizen should be more vocal and should be talking it. I would encourage everyone to be having conversations,” Monaghan said.
