Truth Revolt 
October 7, 2016
The entire cast of Fox’s Empire is voting for Hillary Clinton, according to an official campaign ad directed by the show’s co-creator, Lee Daniels.
Gabourey Sidibe, Tasha Smith, Jussie Smollett, Trai Byers, Bryshere Gray, Grace Byers, Taraji P. Henson and Daniels all star in the ad. Together, they say:
“What will I tell my son? What will you tell your daughter? What will we tell the future generation?
“Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray, Philando Castile. The violence and nasty rhetoric against mankind is unacceptable. If Trump gets into office, it will only get worse.
“Hillary has pledged to close the Charleston loophole on guns.
“I would like a president that will protect Obamacare. Somebody who understands personally the plight of a woman.
“I want a president who stands up against intolerance. There’s only one person in this race who said Black Lives Matter.
“So many women and men died for us to have the right to vote. Every time we sit out we dishonor their sacrifices.”
At the end, they each introduce themselves and say, “I’m voting for Hillary Clinton.”
In a speech earlier this year  at the Human Rights Gala, Daniels railed against Trump, expressing an extreme fear that “these motherf***ers are coming for us.” He had made up his mind about Clinton then and there:
“He’s taking over — he’s coming in to take us down, y’all, and this is serious business. Let’s do the right thing and make sure Clinton is in that f***ing office and taking care of us.”
This was no laughing matter, he reiterated:
“I don’t think you realize how much they’re coming for us. And this is not a joke. I’ve watched everyone make light of what is going on. They are coming for every one of you. White people are not excluded — they’re coming for us.
“It’s time for us to do the right thing. I’m not laughing, this ain’t funny.”
Noticeably absent from the video, paid for by Hillary for America, was lead actor Terrence Howard. But perhaps for a good reason, as the Clinton campaign surely hoping to steer clear of any controversial endorsements, especially someone like Howard who among multiple assaults and drug allegations, was accused of punching his ex-wife in the face .
What are these cast members going to tell their sons and daughters about a man they’ve chosen to work so closely with that is so awful towards women?
Thanks, again, Hollywood for telling us how to vote .
