Elites gonna elite …
Former first lady Michelle Obama’s “When We All Vote” nonprofit and the media group ATTN: are reportedly teaming up to produce a “nonpartisan” comedy schedule slated to air on prime-time TV this fall and ostensibly designed to encourage Americans to vote.
“The hour long special, airing on Sept. 14, will urge viewers to practice their civic duty and vote in the upcoming presidential election in November,” Deadline Hollywood reported Wednesday.
There’s just one problem: Little about the “nonpartisan” event appears to be nonpartisan, including the list of all the guests poised to participate.
Among them are Obama, of course, and Ann Romney, the wife of Sen. Mitt Romney, a man so underhanded that Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs has dubbed him a veritable modern-day reincarnation of “Judas, Brutus [and] Benedict Arnold.”
Romney was the only “Republican” to join Democrats earlier this year in voting to remove President Donald Trump from office. And this week he attacked the president over his tweets, accusing them of being “intended to further inflame racial tension.”

According to Deadline Hollywood, other guests include anti-Trump former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, anti-Trump Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and anti-Trump widow Cindy McCain, the wife of deceased anti-Trump Sen. John McCain.
See the pattern?
“Set to make appearances during the one-time comedy special are Tiffany Haddish, Scarlett Johansson, Will Ferrell, Jay Leno, Jaden Smith and Willow Smith. Also joining in are Tim Allen, Whitney Cummings, Kaia Gerber, Charlamagne tha God, Cristela Alonzo, 2 Chainz and Lil Baby,” the outlet’s report continued.
Of all the celebrities listed, Allen is the only surefire conservative, though it’s not clear whom he supports in the 2020 race. Everybody else appears to be liberal.
One of the men responsible for putting together the event, ATTN: co-founder Matthew Segal, also appears to be liberal.
“Voter participation is in ATTN:’s DNA, and we hope that we can create an event that will speak to all generations, young and old, in a way that shows them that by engaging in the political process, we have an exceptional opportunity to have our voices and values reflected at every level of government,” he reportedly said in a statement.
But what did he mean by “our voices and values?” Was he specifically referring to the values (or lack thereof) of folks like Obama, Romney and McCain?
A glance through his Twitter feeds shows him frequently retweeting left-wingers and highlighting left-wing talking points:
Here’s a reminder that voting is often made tough… on purpose.

Don’t let Congress pretend addressing gun safety is “complicated.” The solutions are simple and right in front of us. It’s only complicated for their campaign purses. Listen to @JoeBiden explain. https://t.co/b5C08tOQUH

This guy appears to be a walking, talking Democrat talking point, and as he made clear in his statement, the goal of the so-called “nonpartisan” special is to bring his left-wing values to the government. Sorry, but that doesn’t sound very “nonpartisan” at all.
Notice also how most of the special’s participants are celebrities. Who do celebrities appeal to? Primarily liberal Democrats. That’s why the Democrat National Convention contained numerous celebrities, whereas the Republican National Convention instead contained everyday Americans, from Nick Sandmann to the McCloskeys.
The left has lost the middle as they get in bed with the Hollywood elites. Factory workers and farmers in the Midwest could careless about Hollywood.

And as for Romney’s appearance at the event, it speaks volumes, according to conservatives:

They still don’t get it. Can you look anymore like the establishment? That’s one of the reasons people like @realDonaldTrump . He’s not part of them

Ann Romney will join a bunch of other people we don’t respect or care about to tell us to do something we’ve been waiting to do for many, many months.

Which goes to show Washington is a swamp of the same tyrannical hypocrites. Trump broke the mold for the working class at all levels.

She is such a hypocrite! Her husband was the Republican nominee for President. She and her husband have betrayed their Republican constituents. He was hired BY THE PEOPLE, and we pay his salary. They pretend they are sooo moral! Absolutely devoid of true character. Fire him Utah
