Bre Payton on Celebrities Politicizing Hurricanes: It Shows You How Smug and Self-Important They Are
‘This is the same kind of smug attitude we saw all throughout the election which is that celebrities think that they have to tell Americans what is good for them’

RUSH EXCERPT:
PAYTON: "Yeah, this is the same kind of smug attitude we saw all throughout the election which is that celebrities think that they have to tell Americans what is good for them, right? They think that they have to tell them what their political opinions should be in order for them to know it, I mean it's very clear that them using this platform which is otherwise a very good thing, it's a good thing to raise money for hurricane victims whose lives have been devastated by the terrible tragedies but a bad thing to twist that into pushing their own political opinion, right? It goes to show you how smug and self-important they are that they think that hijacking this event in order to push their own political agenda and push their own opinions, that goes to show you just the same smug attitude we have seen over and over and over again."
