President Barack Obama got plenty of aid from Hollywood during the 2012 election cycle in terms of both money and promotion, but he still needs their help.
It seems his signature health care reform, ObamaCare, isn’t polling too well as more facts emerge about its unexpected costs. So the Obama administration plans to reach out to Hollywood–again–to prop up those sinking poll numbers.
Trevor Neilson, a veteran of the Clinton White House, said he’s in talks with the Obama administration and that his clients are “looking at ways to be involved.”
Neilson represents Eva Longoria, John Legend and many other stars as president of Global Philanthropy Group. His past clients have reportedly included Shakira and Madonna, and he has close ties to Bono and Bill Gates.
This isn’t about passing legislation. ObamaCare will soon be the law of the land. It’s all about image, so who better than A-list types to rush to the Celebrity in Chief’s side when he needs them the most?
