White House Sent Hollywood Celebrities Talking Points To Tweet In Support Of Gun ControlScreen Shot 2016-01-14 at 4.23.04 PM
We’ve long know that President Obama likes to rub elbows with the biggest stars in Hollywood, but this seems to be taking things to a new level.
When President Obama recently unveiled his plans to curb our Second Amendment constitutional rights by way of executive order, he coordinated with Hollywood bigwigs to convince the American people that everything was ok.
Associate Director of Public Engagement at the White House Jesse Moore send an email out to all of the Presidents celebrity friends entitled: “Artists & Entertainers Unite to #StopGunViolence” and addressed to “Family.”
One part of the email laid out cut & paste tweets, ready for a celebrity to use to brainwash the public:
“Below you have: short and long-term action steps, more info on POTUS’s actions, highlights from YOUR Tweets thus far (thank you!), and draft Tweets for you to build from if helpful,”
Here are some of them:
- @POTUS is taking new commonsense steps to help #StopGunViolence.
- @POTUS is taking steps to keep guns out of the wrong hands through background checks.
- FACT: Each year, more than 30,000 American lives are cut short by guns. It’s time to #StopGunViolence.
- FACT: Guns now kill as many people as cars in almost half of the U.S. It’s time to #StopGunViolence.
- @POTUS is strengthening our background check system.
Nowhere did it say he was bypassing Congress to curb a right of the people. Fascinating…
From Fox News:
LOS ANGELES – Hollywood stars make their living delivering lines written by others, and on the subject of gun control many are quoting a script written by an unlikely source – the White House.
An email sent last week to Tinseltown’s A-listers by Associate Director of Public Engagement at the White House Jesse Moore – titled “Artists & Entertainers Unite to #StopGunViolence” and addressed to “Family” – offered Twitter-ready talking points for showing support for President Obama’s gun control agenda. FoxNews.com, which obtained a copy of the email, compared it to tweets sent by such stars as Ashton Kutcher, and found that the stars passed the thoughts on to adoring fans with little or no ad-libbing.
Should the President be coordinating with Hollywood to pitch policy? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
