Kamala Harris promoted herself as “Kamala Harris for the People” during her failed presidential run. Now that she is Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate, the meaning of “for the people” has become clear: elite Hollywood left-wingers, like J.J. Abrams and Ryan Murphy.

Deadline reported that uber TV producer Ryan Murphy and his husband, David Miller, are chairing a September 3 fundraiser where Hollywood bigwigs will throw hundreds of thousands of dollars at the vice presidential candidate in the hopes of propelling her — and Joe Biden — to victory.

Ticket prices reportedly start at $10,000 per person, rising to $250,000 for “host” level. The guest list features some of corporate Hollywood’s most powerful executives — Amazon Studios’ Jennifer Salke, ICM Partner’s Chris Silbermann, and horror movie producer Jason Blum.

J.J. Abrams will serve as a host for the event, along with Universal Pictures’s Donna Langley, TV producer Chuck Lorre, and Disney TV head Dana Walden. Filmmaker Lee Daniels and Getty family scion William Getty are also serving as co-hosts for the fundraiser.

“We couldn’t be more excited for our friend Senator Kamala Harris to join the Democratic ticket and be our Vice Presidential Nominee.” the invitation reads, according to Deadline. “In less than twelve weeks, we have the chance to make history and elect Joe Biden as the next President and Senator Harris as the first woman to serve as Vice President.”

Kamala Harris has long been a darling of the Hollywood elite since her days serving as California Attorney General. Harris regularly dipped into the Hollywood fundraising pool in her run for the U.S. Senate, cultivating deep ties to studio executives and celebrities.

During her failed presidential run, Harris garnered financial support from some of Hollywood’s biggest power brokers, including Jeffrey Katzenberg and Steven Spielberg.

Now Harris is hoping to transfer some of that Hollywood magic to her 77-year-old running mate. Since his surprise success on Super Tuesday, Joe Biden has made numerous virtual stops in Hollywood where celebrities who were once lukewarm to the Delaware senator have coalesced around his White House bid.

The Biden campaign recently hosted an online fundraiser starring Barack Obama and George Clooney. Other recent fundraisers included appearances by John Legend, Barbra Streisand and Jay Leno.

Another Clooney-led fundraiser recently raked in a reported $7 million for the Biden campaign. The event was held last week, a day after Biden accepted his party’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention.

Joe Biden wasted no time following his Super Tuesday anointment as the Democratic establishment’s favorite candidate by hitting the Hollywood fundraising circuit, rubbing elbows with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Sony Pictures Entertainment honcho Tom Rothman, and former California Governor Gray Davis.

Playing to the elite crowd, Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) tore into President Donald Trump by saying his administration lacks “decency and honor” and may one day be viewed as a “historical aberration.”

“Folks, you all know as well as I do, this is the most important election you ever voted in, not because of Joe Biden, and I mean that. I’m not talking about me,” he reportedly said at the event, which was held at former Paramount boss Sherry Lansing’s Bel Air home.

“It’s because if we find someone who can defeat Trump and reestablish some regular order in this country and some decency and honor, your kids and grandkids will read about this period of our history as a historical aberration,

Biden added: “If he’s elected to four more years, I promise you we will see this society change in a fundamental way for at least a generation or two.”

The Hollywood Reporter noted that ticket prices for the swanky fundraiser ranged from $1,000 to $2,800.

Joe Biden also joked about the on-stage drama that occurred the day before at a campaign rally in Los Angeles when a vegan activists rushed the stage, prompting Jill Biden to physically block one of the protesters from reaching her husband.

“Whoa, you don’t screw around with a Philly girl, I’ll tell you what,” Biden, 77, reportedly said. “I tell you what man, I married way above my station.”

Actress Patricia Arquette is urging people to participate in a one-day economic shutdown that is designed to inflict damage on the U.S. economy and hurt President Donald Trump.

Arquette posted a message to Instagram on Thursday promoting the March 2 event, telling her followers that they should refrain from making any purchases — presumably, including food and medication — for a 24-hour period as part of the #resist movement against the Trump administration.

Arquette’s post claims that the goal of the economic boycott is to “cause a $238.2 billion dollar blip on the federal government’s records.”

It remains unclear who is organizing the boycott, but it appears that it originated with the Twitter account @Lee8772, which said that there will be similar day-long boycotts each month through the November election.

“This will not cause us to go into a recession, but it will slow the economy down,” the account says. “It will show the GOP that Americans are coming together & we’re demanding changes starting with the removal of Trump.”

The account said that only emergency purchases will be exempted from the boycott.

Arquette isn’t the first Hollywood celebrity to advocate for damaging the U.S. economy in order to hurt President Trump, even if it means ordinary Americans will have to bear the brunt of a slowdown. Comedian Bill Maher has repeatedly said on his HBO show that he hopes the U.S. goes into a recession if it means that the Trump administration will suffer.

Just a week after news broke about CNN settling a massive lawsuit over its fake news coverage of Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann, WarnerMedia announced Wednesday that CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter is making a documentary about the rise of fake news that will debut in March on HBO.

After Truth: Disinformation and the Cost of Fake News will examine the phenomenon of “fake news” in the age of social media and the impact that the trend has on average citizens, according to a release from WarnerMedia, the parent company of both CNN and HBO.

Brian Stelter is serving as an executive producer of the documentary, with Andrew Rossi directing. The CNN host said in a tweet Wednesday that he has been working on the project for “a couple of years.”

The left-wing CNN has been one of the worst among the elite media’s fake news offenders. CNN came under fire during the 2016 presidential election when it was revealed that the network leaked debate questions to Hillary Clinton via then-network contributor Donna Brazile.

Since President Donald Trump took office, CNN has made a slew of gross journalistic missteps that have required retractions or major corrections. One of its biggest embarrassments was a 2017 report about a Russian investment fund that allegedly had ties to certain Trump officials.

CNN retracted the story after significant flaws in the reporting came to light, resulting in the resignation of three journalists.

The following year, CNN erroneously reported that Donald Trump Jr. had coordinated with WikiLeaks on the publication of emails from the Democratic party and Hillary Clinton campaign. The story quickly went viral before it was revealed that CNN mixed up the dates, showing that WikiLeaks and Trump, Jr. communicated after the emails were published.

The network was also caught deceptively editing video to make it look like President Trump had rudely dumped a box of fish food into the water during a photo op with Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe. It was later revealed that President Trump was simply copying Abe’s behavior.

CNN recently settled a $275 million lawsuit brought by Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann, who alleged the network defamed him in its coverage of his confrontation with a group of activists during a pro-life rally.

The lawsuit alleged the network put its anti-Trump bias ahead of journalistic standards in portraying Sandmann as the aggressor. Full video of the incident revealed that the Covington students didn’t initiate the confrontation.

CNN personalities have repeatedly praised and lauded left-wing terrorist group Antifa. Just last year, Stelter downplayed the group’s brutal beating of journalist Andy Ngo.

In addition to hosting Reliable Sources, Brian Stelter serves as CNN’s chief media correspondent, a beat he previously covered at the New York Times.
