Anti-Donald Trump Campaign Gains Steam With Celebrities

A day after Donald Trump received the endorsement of political celebrity Sarah Palin, he’s garnered what could best be called non-endorsements.

Harry Belafonte, Eve Ensler, Danny Glover, Kerry Washington, Rosie O’Donnell, Michael Moore Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin are among those lending their names to the Stop Hate Dump Trump campaign, with the goal of calling out the candidate for “hate speech, misogyny, Islamophobia and racism.” But the organization also is taking aim at the way that the media is covering Trump, whether through excessive coverage or by treating him as entertainment. Kimberle Crenshaw, law professor at Columbia and UCLA Law Schools, also is involved in the campaign, and others who have signed on include Alice Walker, Gloria Steinem and Jonathan Demme.

“Trump is a frontrunner candidate who promises to ‘build a wall’ on our borders, humiliates and denigrates Muslims, women immigrants, racial minorities as part of his ‘stump speech,’ allows protesters to be beaten at his rallies and in fact encourages hostility toward anyone who disagrees with him,” Ensler said in a statement.

She said that they intend to “put the media and political institutions on notice that they are accountable for normalizing Trump’s extremism by treating it as entertainment, by giving it inordinate and unequal air time and by refusing to investigate, interrogate or condemn it appropriately.”
