Hollywood joins anti-Trump badgering of the Electoral College

12.15.16 12:52 PM

In a new video making the internet rounds, a group of Hollywood celebrities urge members of the Electoral College to vote for anyone but Donald Trump when the electors convene on Monday.

The video is the latest in a series of attempts by anti-Trump activists to encourage Republican electors to abandon the candidate to whom they are pledged on the basis that he isn’t qualified for the job of president.

“Republican members of the Electoral College, this message is for you,” Martin Sheen says at the video’s open. “As you know, our Founding Fathers built the Electoral College to safeguard the American people from the dangers of a demagogue, and to ensure that the presidency only goes to someone who is to an ’eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.’”

The video follows a celebrity-heavy PSA format used by Hillary Clinton throughout the 2016 election—but the actors say their goal isn’t to encourage electors to vote for the Democratic candidate.

“By voting your conscience, you and other brave Republican electors can give the House of Representatives the option to select a qualified candidate for the presidency,” says Richard Schiff, who played alongside Sheen on the West Wing television drama.

The video was posted by a group called Unite for Action, which describes itself as a “multi-partisan movement of concerned citizens and volunteers, united against the unprecedented threat of an unqualified candidate taking our nation’s highest office.”
