Political Party Past Comes Back to Bite Him

  You Past Will Always Come Back To Haunt You
Marlee Matlin and Bradley Whitford by Cindy Barrymore

Over the weekend Actors Marlee Matlin and Bradley Whitford canvased Whitford’s home state of Wisconsin as part of Hillary Clinton’s “Stronger Together” campaign. Co-stars on the NBC political drama West Wing, Matlin plays pollster and political operative Joey Lucas, while Whitford won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of White House Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman.

Matlin’s work in film and television have resulted in a Golden Globe award, earning two additional nominations, and four Emmy nominations. She is also an Oscar winner, for her lead role in Children of a Lesser God (1986), and hearing impaired since the age of 18 months old the Morton Grove, Illinois, native remains the only deaf performer to win the Academy Award.

The pair is shown here speaking to a group of volunteers at a Clinton campaign office on Milwaukee’s north side. Essentially, both actors reiterated what Mrs. Clinton, President Obama, and even Condoleeza Rice, George W. Bush’s former Secretary of State, have said about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump: that he is unfit for the presidency. 

Having worked alongside “The Donald” on his reality-TV show The Celebrity Apprentice, Matlin spoke of experiencing his derogatory treatment against women and mocking of the disabled firsthand. In recent news reports, a former “Apprentice” employee has come forth speaking on the condition of anonymity; the staffer recalled Trump referring to Matlin as “retarded.”

Channeling Michelle Obama’s mantra “when they go so low, we go high,” Matlin said she refuses to engage Trump in a Twitter tirade over the matter, opting instead to use her voice to vote.
