Eva Longoria Stars In Video Campaign Supporting Hillary Clinton
Among the growing list of celebrities supporting Hillary Clinton, after the provocative video campaign featuring Katy Perry fully naked, Eva Longoria is now showing her support for the Democratic candidate.
In the video, published on the candidate’s Instagram profile, the Desperate Housewives actress explains how important it is for Americans, more particularly for Latinos, to vote for Clinton. “We are disproportionately affected by policies in Washington,” she says. “We are the fastest growing demographic in the United States.”
Back in July, on the first night of the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Longoria confessed why she is supporting Clinton. “I believe in the candidate who believes in all of us, and that candidate is Hillary Clinton,” she told the audience. “Hillary has spent her whole life fighting for all Americans — from healthcare reform to equal pay for women to gun safety to protecting the economy. She is the most qualified presidential candidate ever. She’s been fighting for us for decades and now it’s time we fight for her.”
She called out Donald Trump for his plan to build a wall with Mexico to keep immigrants out of the U.S. and for describing Mexicans as “rapists and criminals.” “I’m from a small town in South Texas, and if you know your history, Texas used to be part of Mexico. I’m ninth-generation American. My family never crossed a border; the border crossed us,” the actress said. “When Donald Trump calls us ‘criminals and rapists,’ he’s insulting American families. My father is not a criminal or a rapist. In fact, he’s a United States veteran,” she said.
Other Latin celebrities also joined Longoria on her support for the female presidential candidate, including Jennifer Lopez, America Ferrera and Michelle Rodriguez.
