Far left celebrities in Hollywood are planning their own state of the union event in an effort to upstage President Trump. They would have been called racists for doing this to Obama but everything is different now.
People Magazine reports:
Mark Ruffalo and More Stars Uniting for Rival Event to Upstage Trump’s First State of the Union
As a progressive, politically active actor, Mark Ruffalo says he’s been called every name in the book — from “libtard” to idiot to ass-hat. He’s been mocked, threatened and told to “shut up.”
But none of that has ever stopped him from fighting for change — and that’s not about to change now.
Ruffalo is one of more than a dozen stars slated to participate in the People’s State of the Union on Monday, a star-studded public alternative to President Trump’s State of the Union speech the following evening. The event will unite activists, artists and other leaders of the resistance movement who have vowed to defeat Trump’s agenda in 2018 by turning out the vote and helping Democrats win back Congress.
“In essence,” Ruffalo tells PEOPLE of the event, “it’s a better reflection of our state of the union based on a more populist point of view, based on the people’s point of view. I think it’s important because we have a president who has a difficult time with the truth, who has a radical, divisive agenda, and spends an enormous amount of time focusing on the negative and hopelessness and despair.”
It will be fascinating to see who wins the night in terms of ratings. We’re betting on Trump.
