Don't let entertainers tell you how to vote
Oprah Winfrey decided she wanted to do just that - - tell us who we should elect as President and attract 75,000 of her followers to hear him - - and her - - speak about how great he would be. Nothing wrong with that.
But it appears to us that Oprah is no more expert on who would make a good President than Joe Blow next door who runs a dry cleaning establishment or Sammy Snood around the corner who fixes automobiles. But of course she has the stage from which she can influence many.
And so it is with many entertainment big wigs. They think their stage can be used to help elect a President. But just like Joe and Sammy, that’s not their business. They have no more savvy on the subject and they shouldn’t pretend they do.
There are many people in other professions with great minds who would probably have a much better comprehension of who would make a good President. But they don’t have the stage from which to influence us.
So we should keep that in mind when we hear an entertainer pushing for the election of a political candidate. They often do.
Let’s enjoy their singing or acting or other stage skills they possess but let’s not necessarily do what they recommend when they engage in politics. It’s not their business. There are many other people who can give us better advice on who to elect for office.
