Playing the celebrity card was a disaster for Hillary and Cameron

Faced with Clinton’s perceived wall of support among African-American voters, Donald Trump told them: ‘You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 per cent of your youth is unemployed, what the hell do you have to lose?’hillarybeyonce

Clinton’s response was to organise a series of public appearances with rapper Jay Z. The result was a seven per cent swing among black voters to Trump.

Hillary Clinton boasted that she  won all the celebrity support and she got that right!  Beyonce, Robert de Niro, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry,  the list was endless. Donald Trump had nobody.   As he said, “Just me!”

David Cameron also played the celebrity card, but in his case political celebrity. Obama was hoiked over to bully and threaten us.  Hillary had her say.  Mark Carney.  Gordon Brown.  Tony Blair. And every Tory grandee Cam could get his hands on, Hezza, Major, Ken Clarke, Chris Patten all launched venomous attacks on Brexit and Boris Johnson, for which they were paid by the EU at £25K a pop!

Trump’s down to earth style resonated with how people felt.  If this election has proved anything, it is that celebrity endorsements are a waste of time.  Anyone who patronisingly wheels on celebrities is just proving they despise and underestimate the public

  1. Trump listens. Hillary has a glazed look in her eyes, all on autopilot.
