Despite a whole lot of people clamoring for Betty White to make an appearance at the Democratic National Convention, rumor has it that three very different actresses will be taking the job instead.
According to CNN, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, and Kerry Washington have been “secretly scheduled” to speak tonight at the DNC, to appear before a performance by The Foo Fighters. Though nothing has been confirmed by DNC officials, many think this could be just what the Dems need to follow Clint Eastwood’s much-maligned appearance last week at the Republican convention; namely, because the support of three young, female, high-profile supporters can only help President Obama in the longrun.
However, despite the favor their appearance could win with the young voting crowd, it’s likely they wouldn’t be taken seriously by everyone, as evidenced by a few of the tweets below.
Between Bill Clinton, Foo Fighters, Michelle Obama and Scarlett Johansson’s breasts, Obama has the endorsement angle covered. #DNC
