“Real Housewife” McDaniel Attacks Hollywood After Playing Video Narrated By Oscar Winner Jon Voight

The Hill reports:

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel took a swipe at actor Eva Longoria in her remarks at the Republican National Convention on Monday, contrasting her own experience as a “housewife” to Longoria’s role playing one on TV nearly a decade ago.

“Democrats started their convention last week with Eva Longoria, a famous Hollywood actress who played a housewife on TV,” McDaniel said, referring to the ABC show “Desperate Housewives.”

“Well, I’m actually a real housewife and a mom from Michigan with two wonderful kids in public school who happens to be the only — only the second woman in 164 years to run the Republican Party.”

The Daily Beast reports:

The anti-Hollywood message is one that McDaniel has been making in TV interviews over the past several days, promising that Trump’s convention was “going to be about real people.”

McDaniel must have missed the Hollywood-style video package that opened the RNC on Monday night—with dramatic voiceover by four-time Oscar nominee and one-time winner Jon Voight, who is also the father of Angelina Jolie.

“We all know that it is easy to criticize. It takes a true leader to solve problems,” Voight told viewers in the video. “COVID-19. While others criticized without solutions, President Trump’s swift action saved lives, and as leading Democrats want to keep businesses closed down, our president is leading a way for a full economic recovery.”
