-- -- as we discussed -- British you the entertainment media will be a major factor in the upcoming presidential campaign.
Website call Funny or Die recently put out an anti Rick -- -- santorum's -- I should say sorry actress Ashley Judd.
Dixie I understand you like to terminate you -- into song and I championed kidnappings and they currencies -- little.
You're a grown man running for president and I'm.
Just a woman -- never worked in politics and couldn't possibly understand what you're going to mean -- am -- -- -- talking he helped us.
Here we are.
A lot of -- Can tell -- this early in six weeks of candidacy can -- He thinks corners and before doing anything -- -- your friends can send more.
We'll finalize this after the mandatory sentence are waiting period and be careful on your way up -- -- angry people out there please.
Take one of -- prayer fully consider this past saying.
-- so terminating a candidacy as opposed to terminating a pregnancy we get it.
So is that a Smart move by ms.
Judd in the other actresses attorneys have Los Angeles Kim Serafin who covers entertainment for in touch weekly.
A -- by an an editor for the Hollywood reporter so mr.
-- this is a very and promotional issue abortion.
And I and -- people.
They note -- they remember.
Who says walk and Ashley Judd.
I'm not sure whether that was a great career move -- -- understands is a right to say it absolutely.
But she's trying to be a successful actress in a mass market and you say.
Well I say and it is risky I mean we we took Paula to Hollywood reporter.
You know a lot of Republicans and a good number of Democrats do.
Actually look at the politics of actors before they it'll go shell out money to see them in movies.
Not so much in television.
But it is a risky move to get so political so -- Ashley -- had you know most most of what people know about our politics is that she's you know him.
Works in the humanitarian causes in women's issues like this Funny or -- video.
But she is taking a slight risk but she's nowhere near.
The people like cash on hand in -- find out where people just.
I'm not only Jihad organization is Fortis is a step toward that I I I'd telling -- I'm telling you.
People who are pro life.
And that there -- a whole lot of Americans more than 50% according to the polls.
Are gonna note that Ashley Judd not only advocated a pro choice position but mocked.
Rick Santorum -- -- I don't think you're gonna forget that.
You know I think the actually judge she's been a longtime political supporter of President Obama of local democratic candidates she's actually going -- the DNC she's going to the convention as a delegate for Tennessee since she that is really and it bothered a lot of these issues and -- -- -- she is certainly insert herself and other controversies like most recently where she got more publicity around.
The issue where people criticized her looks at -- plastic surgeries got jobs for our and a very.
-- thing about eleven looked at a lot more publicity and I think a lot more people pay attention to that.
And a lot more women excited with her on -- that appeals to a lot of.
Well but she's wiped out all out with this but here's the deal she's in a program called missing which is a marginal program -- on the edge -- right.
And she lost viewers I guarantee you she lost viewers.
By doing what she did with Santorum mr.
-- And that's a program that can't afford to lose any viewers you see what I'm talking about.
Golf course I do I mean.
I'm the guy that that did the poll that suggest people do look at this stuff yet but.
But only about 250000 people saw this video online on now an extra three down inside tiger showed -- -- more than -- about that so far this.
Is become center stage as an advocate not someone who just has a personal belief system.
And that's what -- I don't know whether entertainment mass market interchange -- -- be advocates doesn't help their business.
No yeah surveillance.
-- to Serafin.
Then I doesn't say you know in her book the last year she also think a lot of push back from that rap and hip -- industry -- she made comments saying that they promoted a rape culture that -- -- massaging his stick that they hyper sexual -- women and girls and I'm sure that didn't sit well a lot of people on -- -- -- -- I think a lot of people agree with her on that so I -- they're definitely people that I agree with that maybe not a real apparent this and you certainly people watch your show -- I agree with some things done -- something they still need and they.
Lastly -- I.
-- there's always a preponderance and you make a good point that Ashley Judd.
Is is primarily interstate in in women's rights and that's a good thing we like people who step up and and and their belief system but this one.
I'm telling young and give you miss -- era bond the last word I think this hurts her career I do think it does go it.
It might hurt a mildly I mean as usual the wants to appeal to both sides of the aisle she's not like Ted Nugent who only cares about -- appealing to conservatives.
So it will murder mildly bad -- -- gets more traction right now it's not a very funny clip.
So as it gets more traction because of what you're doing tonight in raising awareness that this thing -- -- even exists -- her career more.
Yeah and I'm not I'm not in business to do that but it's an interesting story and we have to tell the story and by the way George Clooney learn this lesson big time.
After the 9/11 charity stuff he changed his whole approach because he got hurt on that.
The Serafin mr.
-- thank you.
