Keegan-Michael Key Forecasts a Donald Trump Presidency in Joss Whedon’s Video

Joss Whedon’s political action committee Save the Day has released a new video warning of a Donald Trump presidency in which Keegan-Michael Key plays a weatherman giving an apocalyptic vision of the future.

The video, called “Weatherman,” is directed by Whedon and is the latest in a flurry of campaigns featuring celebrities urging younger voters to get out the vote, in some cases with dire warnings about Trump winning the election.

Whedon has donated $275,000 to the PAC, according to the latest records from the Federal Election Commission. It has spent $142,664 in production costs. The goal of the PAC is to boost voter registration, particularly among younger voters.

According to the PAC, Save the Day has so far helped register more than 40,000 voters around the country. Last month, it debuted a video featuring Robert Downey Jr., Martin Sheen, Don Cheadle, and others to get out the vote. The spot, called “Important,” also warned of a Trump presidency, although he was not mentioned by name.

Whedon also waded into the 2012 campaign, creating a video that irreverently warned of the “zombie apocalypse” should Mitt Romney be elected. He told BuzzFeed last month that he planned to spend up to $1 million for the Save the Day effort.

    you keep unevenly pushing for one candidate over another. How about some journalistic integrity?
    Oh, ‘Hillary’s America’ just came out on DVD. Can we expect some page space for that as well?

    Stick to the industry and stay out of the political arena. It’s not fairing well for us.
    Wise up.

  2. Observer says:

    Ya mean, like all the ‘forecasts’ that Al Gore hysterically made, with not a one coming true??
    Like that Joss?

    So blinded to Hillary’s corruption, lies, deceit and pay for play of selling out our country for personal enrichment, you outta stick to movies.
    In fact, I take this country’s welfare far more importantly than even Iron Man so, I guess I’ll skip whatcha got coming out Joss. I don’t follow ignorance too well.

    Yeah, keep laughing and thinking he can’t win, smart asses. It’ll be the end of America as we know it when he strolls into the Oval Office.

    But, but, but Hillary is so far ahead in the polls. And, and, and she has the backing of Hollywood, the Liberal media and, and, the constituents who adore her. What’s all this piling on for?

    Don’t throw away your handkerchiefs just yet lefties…

    Honestly I’d rather Whedon make Illyria/Fred Burkle show on Netflix. I miss the Buffyverse and this is the only spin off that might work right now.
