Wow. Shonda Rhimes and the powerful women of #TGIT pledge their support for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in an unprecedented ad. Click to WATCH!
With Shonda Rhimes, 46, and the #TGIT leading ladies behind her, how can Hillary Clinton, 68, lose? Kerry Washington, 39, Ellen Pompeo, 46, Viola Davis, 50, and Shonda champion for Hillary to become the first female president in an all-new campaign ad, which dropped on March 10. They call her their “champion” and know she’ll “fight for what’s right” in America.
“Every day I wake up and play a brilliant, complex, over-qualified, get-it-done woman who obsessively fights for justice. Who cares. Who gives a voice to the voiceless. Who gets knocked down and always gets back up,” Kerry, Ellen and Viola say in the ad.
“I make television filled with the kind of characters I imagine we all can be,” Shonda says. “Our characters are on television, but the real world has Hillary Clinton. A bonafide, rolls-up-her-sleeves, fights for what’s right, in it for you, won’t back down champion for all of us,” the Shondaland creator and the rest of the #TGIT girls add.
Every single one of the #TGIT queens vow, “I’m with Hillary.” It’s quite an incredible moment. At the end of the ad, Shonda says, “Join us.”
The campaign ad was directed by Scandal’s Tony Goldwyn. Following the release of the ad during the #TGIT on March 10, Hillary tweeted in response to Shonda, “Talk about a power lineup. Thank you for being on this team!”
Hillary was spotted on the Scandal set back in Feb. 2016. While many of us thought she was filming a guest appearance, it now looks like she there to watch this incredible campaign ad get made. Hillary is currently battling Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination. Will you join the #TGIT girls and vote for Hillary?
