Gov’t Pays $60k For Play About Gay President Fighting Zombies In White HouseScreen Shot 2015-10-09 at 8.17.38 PM
Nope, this isn’t an Onion article. It’s real life and this expenditure by the federal government was exposed by Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ).
Meanwhile, there is a disgraceful number of homeless veterans across America.
The play is about America’s first gay president fighting zombies. It’s called “Zombie: The American,” Here is the play’s description from the theater company putting it on:
“The year is 2063 and Thom Valentine, the first openly gay President of the United States, faces a host of problems. An imminent civil war, the threat of an African invasion, an adulterous First Gentleman, and zombies in the basement of the White House! With his power, his marriage, and the nation’s well-being at stake, he must decide what he cares most about saving … and at what cost.”
Chalk this up to another example of the government being horrible stewards of our funds and careless about the care our vets receive.
Here’s a little clip of the play:
More at the Washington Free Beacon:
The National Endowment for the Arts gave $60,000 for the production of a play about the first openly gay president of the United States who has to fight zombies in the basement, and who has a cheating First Man.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) highlighted thegrant for “Zombie: The American” in his running series meant to expose wasteful spending.
“The year is 2063 and Thom Valentine, the first openly gay President of the United States, faces a host of problems,” reads the Woolley Mammoth Theater Company’s description of the play. “An imminent civil war, the threat of an African invasion, an adulterous First Gentleman, and zombies in the basement of the White House!”
