These idiots obviously haven’t been paying attention the past week.
Sporting a white trench coat, Jennifer Hudson struts down a Washington street as an ominous voice says, “In the cutthroat world of D.C., Lydia Cole cuts through the B.S.”
She sits in the office of a fictional senator listening to him admit he has a pregnant mistress.
“Finally, an actual scandal,” Hudson’s character says.
After all, “Lydia Cole” patterned after hit television show “Scandal” character Olivia Pope, a sharp-tongued D.C. fixer played by Kerry Washington, has recently been busy with less outrageous matters.
Like dealing with a 20-something worried about a pre-existing asthma condition and a woman concerned because her company’s health insurance might not cover mammograms.
In a video produced by humor website Funny or Die, these “scandals” are easily solved by Hudson, who offers her clients advice such as, “The ACA [Affordable Care Act] takes about 15 minutes to sign up for; I need you to go to healthcare.gov.”
The clip is just one example of the star-studded White House effort to deploy artists, actors and content creators to help sell the president’s signature health care overhaul, the Affordable Care Act, especially to younger Americans.
“Can you please find me a real scandal?” Hudson asks at the end of the Funny or Die video. “All of these people’s issues can easily be fixed by the ACA.”
You want a real scandal? Sure, here you go.
Update: We found a couple of celebrities trying to sign up for ObamaCare:
