Alyssa Milano and Rosie O’Donnell have officially joined forces to help bring down President Trump in an effort doomed to fail.
First, no one listens to Hollywood celebrities and certainly not has-beens like these two. Second, someone should tell the dynamic duo that actually getting 67 votes to convict in the GOP controlled Senate will never happen.
Lastly, when this effort fails the backlash will be worse than Mueller’s attempt failed and will probably lead to the GOP sweeping the 2020 elections.
But off they go anyway joining forces with something called the “Impeachment Task Force with a goal of “seeking to hold Trump ‘accountable for his betrayal of America.’”
The task force, designed to lead rapid response to Trump during the impeachment inquiry, has confirmed members including comedian Rosie O’Donnell; actors Tom Arnold, Ron Perlman and George Takei; and actresses Debra Messing and Alyssa Milano, The Democratic Coalition’s co-founder Scott Dworkin told Newsweek. The task force launched a fundraising effort and basic plan on Thursday. The group has already started meeting and is set to go live with its website next week.
The task force, which projects having 100 celebrities and more than 1,000 other members by next week, plans to spread hashtags to streamline impeachment information, combat disinformation and reach out to Congress through letters and phone calls.
“Trump’s propaganda machine is going to be in overdrive for the foreseeable future, so we need to be fighting every day, in every way,” stated Dworkin, who will work in the task force.
The coalition’s chairman Jon Cooper stated, “For now, impeachment is the only way to hold him accountable for his betrayal of America.”
As its logo, the task force is using a doctored presidential seal with that was mysteriously projected behind Trump as he spoke at the conservative group Turning Point USA’s student summit in July. The altered seal featured a bird similar to the one on the Russian coat of arms with two heads, and clasped golf clubs instead of 13 arrows in one talon, and cash instead of an olive branch in the other talon.
Other confirmed famous task force members are musician Stefan Lessard, authors Grant Stern and Lea Black and former tennis player Martina Navratilova. Celebrities in the left-wing movement The Resistance and VoteVets will be involved, as well as former FBI assistant director Frank Figliuzzi, former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti, former Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, former congressman David Jolly, gun control activist Fred Guttenberg, patient advocate Peter Morley and progressive activist and lawyer Ady Barkan.
Dworkin said the celebrities got on board in less than 24 hours of the coalition coming up with the task force idea last week and “a lot are personal friends.” Most of the celebrities, with more than 25,000 followers, will be heavily involved in video conferences, conference calls and amplifying the message “to a Trump-level on Twitter,” he said.
“A lot of these celebs have been attacked by Trump people or even by Trump personally, so he will be paying attention,” Dworkin said.
