Politics and Superheroes
Posted on February 24, 2016 by Zach Hennessey
It seems like all anyone ever wants to talk about lately is politics. Everyday it’s Trump said this and Hillary called Bernie that. Whenever I tune in to the political conversation, all I hear is a bunch of name-calling and negativity, and it got me thinking: How are these hateful statements affecting kids my age and the rest of America? So this past weekend I took to the streets of Los Angeles, California to find out.
With more than 10 million visitors annually, I focused my attention on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and had the chance to interview some of the most popular names in Hollywood. We talked all things politics, from light-hearted questions about their favorite president, to the hard-hitting issues and whom they’re voting for this election year. You’d be surprised who they picked as their front running candidate!
After an afternoon full of political discussions, I realized that politicians’ negativity really does affect people and heavily influences who they choose as their leader. I was also happy that I could lighten up the political mood with some much needed comedy.
