A group of Hollywood-actor-vists, leads the attempt to persuade voters to vote for the President-elect Donald Trump on Monday, a hastily arranged last-ditch bid that has led to at least a painful mistake.
Martin Sheen, who played fictional President Josiah Barlett on “The West Wing” is on display in a personalized video designed to sway a Kansas elector, Politico reported. The piece is titled “the Lord Ashley McMillan” and Shine begs, “Mr. McMillan” follow the example of the founding fathers of America. He is hopeful that McMillan, switches his voice and has grown into one of the 37 Republican voters need to possibly reject Trump the presidency.
Only a problem with the Glare from the pitch: Ashley McMillan is not a man.
“It is my job to represent the people of Kansas on Monday. It was Martin Sheen’s job to get my name right. He failed. I won’t,” McMillan, who plans to vote for Trump, told The Daily Caller.
ELECTORAL COLLEGE PREPARES TO MEET ON THE BASIS OF OLD RULES, NEW CONTROVERSY
Sheen is joined in the main, non-personalized Unite for video-America by the likes of “will & Grace” actress Debra Messing, of “Better Call Saul” star Bob Co and musician Moby.
“I’m not asking you to vote for Hillary Clinton,” Moby says during the ad, as the soft piano music playing under his voice.
“What is evident is that Donald Trump miss more than the qualifications to be president,” “M. A. S. H.” actor Mike Farrell says, Messing with the supply of the blow: “He lacks the stability that is needed.”
Sheen says the voters will have “the opportunity to go down in the books as an American hero” if they do not vote for Trump.
Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway on Sunday dismissed the effort as “working actors and actresses embarrassing themselves.”
“A man played the president on the series” The West Wing.’ He is not the president to the West Wing. That is Donald Trump,” Conway told Fox News’ Howard Kurtz on “Media Buzz.”
Trump is in line to get 306 538 electoral votes under the state-by-state distribution of the electors elected presidents since 1789.
The Associated Press tried to reach all of the 538 electors, and was able to interview more than 330 of them. Many reported to the tens of thousands of e-mails, phone calls and letters asking them to vote against Trump.
But the cloth found overwhelming support for the system, and the candidates among Republican voters. The AP found only one property to Trump, who refuse to vote for him.
