Incredible the President Obama calling on Hollywood's elite to raise big box for his reelection campaign and host lavish fund raising events George Clooney.
And -- -- and Sarah Jessica Parker just a few of the big names that commitment of all backing the president.
But do votes of those voters.
Care about these celebrity status via.
Joining me now is Kelly Jane Torrance she's with the weekly standard Kelly Jane town is my position.
I can't believe that appealing to these elitists.
Okay you get money from them but does it help President Obama get votes I don't think it does and you say.
I think it I think it's very Smart strategy because this is one arena in which Republicans simply cannot compete with Democrats.
Democrats have star power if if Obama started talking about the economy if we start talking about foreign policy what Republicans have things to -- to him on that but.
Star power we've got George Clooney verses -- -- -- there's there's no topic to.
Should just stop how do you think you think the star power alone.
Brings in votes do you think it's legit for us to take our -- I -- I -- Tax the rich policy from an elitist like Anna wintour.
We're gonna take -- political advice from Sarah Jessica Parker's gonna tell me about job creation and -- most of the President Obama because she's of -- she's supporting him.
-- can't believe this.
Well first of all it it worked for him to some degree in 2008.
When he got Oprah's endorsement -- you know his numbers started going.
For the group now obviously she wasn't the one who got -- -- it but it certainly helped to boost his numbers.
Yeah so let's face it we live in a celebrity culture these days.
There are talking more know it's a more people are probably watching the card actually show than your show I think that's -- But that's the reality.
And download and -- Had.
And I think insult to the American people I think at this point after four years celebrity or not doesn't matter -- we have cocktails with that night.
People are feeling it at home that households are not who really what they wire four years ago.
And so regardless of who he hangs out what -- I don't think they're gonna vote.
For the celebrity status issue I think -- -- -- -- with their -- Let it all that a second before you answer that I accrued and let let me jump in here.
You are assuming that the people who take -- political advice from the Sarah Jessica -- of this world or even the cannot -- to us you think that gonna vote.
Do you think they vote what about turnout amongst that group of people think they spun out.
Well first of all it's not just about votes and it's not just about numbers at least those numbers.
Let's keep in mind that Obama's small dollar donors have gone -- the number of them is just has plummeted this year they are not giving an.
You know George Clooney throws a fund raiser at -- house for Obama it raised fifteen million dollars.
You know these are rich people but let's keep in mind there's a cap of 2500.
On political donations so you you need people who aren't celebrities ponying happening what better way to get them interest -- and giving some money -- invite them to George Clooney's house and I think one -- -- -- and we gonna have to cover this is the number of small donors who -- no longer giving to the Obama campaign because the numbers really on down.
It's amazing how much they've dropped and admitted that this is one way to you know it's it's not just about getting bounce is also about getting money that's -- Kelly -- -- thanks for joining us appreciate it thank you.
