Some of America’s biggest celebrities are throwing concerts, speaking and even going door-to-door to help Democrats win the midterm elections.
Oprah Winfrey, the self-made billionaire media mogul, is heading to Georgia to campaign for Stacey Abrams. Abrams is in a heated battle for Governor of Georgia and if she wins, she will be the first African American to hold the office.
Winfrey is planning on knocking on doors and speaking at two Town Halls to help Abrams take the governorship, Oprah isn’t alone. There are all kinds of celebrities campaigning for Democrats.
Michael B. Jordan, the star of Creed and Black Panther is hitting the streets and knocking on doors to encourage black people to get out and vote. Many of the residents he visited were shocked to see a celebrity on their door telling them to get out and vote.
America’s favorite margarita sipping, flip-flop wearing singer is also doing what he can to help Democrats win in his home state. Jimmy Buffet is holding a concert in West Palm Beach on Saturday to help energize Democrats to vote for the gubernatorial candidate, Andrew Gillum.
Other stars like Barbara Streisand are releasing albums and songs to help the progressive party. Streisand’s latest album is very political and attacks the president and his supporters. The singer sat down with the New York Times and told them that it “doesn’t matter” if she upsets Trump fans.
Vocal liberal Amy Schumer and 50 other celebrities including Jane Fonda and ulia Louis-Dreyfus are doing a two-hour telethon to encourage people to get out and vote. “Telethon for America” can be seen on YouTube, Facebook and the Comedy Central websites on Monday at 9pm.
With the celebrity left doing whatever they can to help Democrats, they have to push the needle a little, right? A similar push came in 2016 when dozens of celebrities came out to support Hillary Clinton. Even pop royalty, Jay-Z and Beyonce held a concert for Hillary. Trump didn’t have many celebrities supporting him, but in the end, it didn’t matter.
Will it matter in 2018?
