The stars of showrunner Shonda Rhimes' television programs, along with Rhimes herself, are featured in a new video supporting Hillary Clinton:
Released on ABC's "Thank God It's Thursday" lineup, the minute-long ad features Scandal's Kerry Washington, How to Get Away With Murder's Viola Davis and Grey's Anatomy's Ellen Pompeo, along with Rhimes, expressing their support of Clinton.
"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," the three actresses state before Rhimes is seen in the "Real Life" ad, which was directed by Scandal co-star Tony Goldwyn.
"I make television filled with the kind of characters I imagine we all can be," Rhimes says into the camera.
"Strong, but flawed; human, but extraordinary," Davis and Pompeo continue.
"Our characters are on television, but the real world has Hillary Clinton," each of the four women state. "A bonafide, rolls-up-her-sleeves, fights for what's right, in it for you, won't back down champion for all of us."
"That's why I'm with Hillary," Rhimes begins, before the four actresses each echo "I'm with Hillary."
Prior to the ad running on television, Clinton and Rhimes shared exchanges on Twitter. "@shondarhimes @tonygoldwyn @kerrywashington @violadavis @ellenpompeo: Talk about a power lineup. Thank you for being on this team!" Clinton said. Rhimes replied, "So proud that I am with her because she is with US."
Unless her husband has assaulted you - then Hillary kicks women to the curb.
