Hollywood thinks Michelle Obama by no means left the White House.
Last month we discovered HBO Max is pairing with the previous First Lady for a “West Wing” reunion that doubles as an advert for Obama’s When We All Vote initiative.
The “nonpartisan” group overwhelmingly leans left by way of its very public face, from Obama herself to the galaxy of stars behind her.
Now, ABC is teaming up with When We All Vote for a brand new comedy particular geared toward boosting voter turnout.
Kevin Hart will host VOMO: Vote or Miss Out, and seem alongside an all-star record of comics, musicians and politicians. The particular is ready to air Sept. 14, following the premiere of Dancing With the Stars.
The particular vows to be “nonpartisan,” however a fast take a look at the expertise roster doesn’t assist that evaluation. The solely overtly conservative star is “Last Man Standing” standout Tim Allen. The relaxation? A cavalcade of liberal celebrities like Will Ferrell, Charlamagne Tha God, Tiffany Haddish, Jon Hamm and Scarlett Johansson flesh out the forged to this point.
Where’s Scott Baio? Antonio Sabato, Jr.? Dennis Miller? Dean Cain? Stacey Dash? Heck, even Jeff Foxworthy might convey Red State bona fides to the affair.
Allen, whereas an overtly proper of heart movie star, is just not practically as vocal as your common member of the Hollywood Resistance.
The bias will get worse.
The right-leaning figures assembled to supply ideological steadiness embrace of us who overtly oppose President Donald Trump. Cindy McCain, widow of the late Sen. John McCain, not too long ago contributed to Joe Biden’s marketing campaign by way of a DNC conference video. Her husband famously sparred with Trump throughout the 2016 election cycle, with Trump’s belittling feedback towards the veteran drawing loads of headlines, and rightly so.
Ann Romney is the spouse of Sen. Mitt Romney, some of the anti-Trump Republicans on the scene.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, the previous Republican governor who repeatedly clashes with President Trump, additionally will seem throughout the occasion.
The solely Republican voice listed by THR that isn’t at warfare with Trump in any apparent method is Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan. Yet Hogan has been a fierce Trump critic on events, too.
Optics matter. Seeing a scrum of liberal stars alongside right-leaning personalities who detest Trump, sends a really clear message.
Pull the lever for Biden/Harris.
