Skip to comments.Democrats turn to Hollywood for messaging help
Posted on 06/11/2018 7:43:34 PM PDT by EdnaMode
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.
The group has discussed targeted voter-registration programs with visiting Democrats, as well as the partys framing of issues ranging from abortion rights to gun control. In one recent meeting, a Midwestern senator sought advice about how to discuss gun control with conservative-leaning voters in his or her state, multiple participants said.
Participants declined to identify the senator or other elected officials who have visited.
Were a messaging strike force, mostly around voter registration and get-out-the-vote efforts, said Mathew Littman, a former Joe Biden speechwriter who helped to organize the group with Stephanie Daily Smith, a political consultant based in Los Angeles.

That's a terrible idea!
Maybe Paul McCartney can redub the All you need is love song, to the democrat party line: All we have his Hate!
That’s all Hollywood is, Dem messaging “help”.
Um...oh, no, if Hollywood does this Trump is finished. The worst thing they could do would be to get Kathy Griffin, Michelle Wolf, Jimmy Kimmel and Robert Deniro and make them the face of the DNC!
I am so scared. I hope they don’t do this. The left will gain unbeatable ascendancy!
Sounds like in kind contributions!
they might try Disturbed’s “Who taught you how to hate”
though if they do, it would ruin a decent song for all time.
Robert DeNiro should be all the democrats need, with his:
“F” Trump rants.
That should get voters motivated and to the polls in November. No other message necessary, and no positions on the issues, just “F Trump”.
I don’t think F%*k Trump works well.
Don’t these fools remember that having celebrities campaign worsens the turnout?
It is basically all the Rats or leftist Hollywierd celebutards have.
Completely, totally, out of touch.
Well it worked so well last time.....wait
di niro is YOUR GUY!
Do it dnc!!! hollywood has the PULSE of the USA! It worked in 2016 so it will...
Sorry about that babs.
I 100% promise I did NOT read any posts before stealing, I mean uniquely penning, my own!!
The RATs have no message, no policies and no solutions.
Only hate for Trump.
The drug addled propagandist wing of the Rat-Socialist Party.
The millionaires and billionaires who insist that you aren’t paying enough in taxes and need to downsize on your house, your energy usage, your air conditioning, your meat eating, your caloric intake, your breeding capacity, etc etc...
Thats right, look to such sages as Robert DeNiro and the like for messaging tips...
Hollywood is full of hate, similar to the media. They are infected with Hate Trump Disease. Some of them want to infect others with their poison.
The crowd stood and clapped for the Hate Rage dirty word.
Are they all drunk with hate or just love to hate?
