The Democrat party is not living, in reality, they really think they are in some type of virtual reality type TV show.
The illusion that this was going came true during a press briefing at the White House on October 1, 2021, when former White House Press Secretary Jenn Psaki was asked about negotiations between the White House and Congress.
On September 29, 2021, a reporter asked Psaki, “How confident is the White House, at this point, of a vote on infrastructure tomorrow? Or do you think that could slip into next week? Have you’ve gotten any assurances?”
“Well, this is why we all came to Washington. It’s like an episode of a TV show where we — I’m not in a position to look in a crystal ball here,” Psaki said.
As the press in the room laughed the reporter asked, “Which TV show?”
“Maybe “The West Wing” if something good happens; maybe “Veep” if not. I’m not sure. I will assess tomorrow where we stand,” Psaki answered.
Fast forward almost a year later, and the cast of The West Wing and Veep come together to hold a live stream fundraiser for the Wisconsin Democratic Party.
“I’m doing this because I am a concerned citizen. I am a patriot. And I believe that democracy is, without hyperbole, is on the line right now, and I know that Wisconsin is a pivotal state, and so much hangs in the balance,” said Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who played vice president then president Selina Meyer on Veep.
“There is an anxiety, a great fear in the country, from coast to coast, in all levels of our society about what we are faced with and how much responsibility each one of us is meant to carry,” said Martin Sheen, who played President Jed Barlett on The West Wing. “Unfortunately, this lie that has permeated all levels of our society, and it has caused a great many of the, I should say, public servants in the Republican party, to hide any sense of their humanity or sense of purpose or even real patriotism. They seem to have [been] frozen in spineless fear about the consequences of speaking the truth, of exposing the lie.”
Deadline reported that Bradley Whitford, Melissa Fitzgerald, Mary McCormack, and Richard Schiff from West Wing also participated in the fundraiser.
The two-hour fundraiser raised about $686,000, and the actors re-enacted scenes from both shows, including a segment about abortion.
The Democrat party is so unpopular that they are using fake Democrat politicians to fundraise.
According to Louis-Dreyfus, the Veep cast seemed to have close ties with Biden and recalled when Biden called to congratulate the show.
Early on in the run of Veep, Louis-Dreyfus remembered getting a call from Joe Biden, when he was vice president and before the cast knew that he was aware of the show. “He called to congratulate me that I had made it onto the cover of Amtrak magazine,” she said. Biden later appeared in a Veep-themed Correspondents’ Dinner video and “he was unbelievably gracious and wonderful,” albeit they had to go through a lot of hoops to get access.
