(AmericanProsperity.com) – The White House announced on Thursday that US President Joe Biden is tapping Oscar-winner Lady Gaga as the co-chair of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, which could include numerous superstars such as Jennifer Garner, Jon Batiste, Shonda Rhimes and George Clooney. The other chairman of the council will be Oscar-winner producer Bruce Cohen.
The “Applause” singer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, has been one of the most vocal Biden supporters in Hollywood during the 2020 presidential election. She even performed at the Democrat’s presidential inauguration and made numerous remarks criticizing former President Donald Trump.
In addition to actors Garner and Clooney, musician Batiste and screenwriter Rhimes; other stars that could be part of the committee include actress Kerry Washington, singer Joe Walsh, producer Ricky Kirshner, Oscar-winner Troy Kotsur and “Friends” creator Marta Kauffman.
Numerous reports suggest that other names that could be part of this committee include art historian Nora Halpern, President of Berkeley City College Angelica Garcia, artist Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya, New York Democratic Congressman Steve Israel and others.
Over the last few years, the relationship between the Democratic Party and Hollywood has been stronger than ever. Experts believe this situation could be quite dangerous because it makes one US political party much more influential than the other on public opinion. After all, along with academia and the mainstream media, the cultural and entertainment industry is one of its main pillars.
A recent episode that showed Hollywood’s clear bias took place in 2017 during the Trump administration. At that moment, numerous members of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, including George Wolfe, Chuck Close and Sean Penn, quit the committee in protest of then-President Donald Trump. Each one of these personalities was appointed by former Democratic President Barack Obama.
The committee was created in the early 1980s during the administration of former President Ronald Reagan.
