Hollywood Weaponizes Nostalgia to Take Down President Trump


As you would like, certainly.

Hollywood has a brand new approach of getting folks excited to tug the lever for the Biden-Harris ticket, and it entails a little bit of time touring.

No, Doc Brown’s Delorean has nothing to do with the trade’s newest voter effort. A minimum of not but.

A trio of beloved properties are staging reunions to drum up extra votes this November. And everyone knows which approach we’re imagined to vote, wink-wink.

It’s not sufficient that a lot of contemporary Hollywood is woke, progressive and dismissive of Purple State USA. Now, popular culture reminiscences are being weaponized towards conservatives. 

Some reunions, like “The Princess Bride’s” gathering, make no bones about its political intentions. The upcoming digital occasion might be a fundraiser for Wisconsin Democrats, and famous Trump hater Rob Reiner, the movie’s director, might be one in all many readily available Sept. 13.

“I believe most individuals are conscious by now that Donald Trump has fully abdicated his duties as President to characterize and get up for all Individuals. He has didn’t hold the nation secure from COVID-19 and because of this he’s liable for the devastating chaos, violence and financial collapse that we are actually experiencing,” mentioned “Bride” star Cary Elwes in a statement tied to the occasion.

The Zoom-based “Golden Ladies” reunion required extra creativeness.

Three of the present’s 4 leads have since handed, with solely Betty White nonetheless alive and properly. So the venture recast the principle characters as ladies of colour, that includes stars like Sanaa Lathan and Tracee Ellis Rose reading a “classic” “Golden Girls” script.

Tuesday’s occasion teamed with Color of Change, a progressive outfit supporting “financial justice” and different far-left causes, to maximise voter turnout.

After all, that is along with an “October Surprise”-like surge of shows, movies and properties already lined as much as drag Biden throughout the electoral end line. That features voter “suppression” documentaries like “All In: The Combat for Democracy” and the upcoming Showtime miniseries “The Comedy Rule.”
