Is this the kind of people (the ultra 1%) that we want deciding what is good and right in America? Do these people reflect the values of America? They spend their time pretending to be who they are not. They are only influential because they are celebrities. Most of them know little about real life or real issues. The issues that they care about are not the ones that most Americans care about. Let them stick to movie making and stay out of politics.
