Jon Hamm Campaigns for Obama Before Election Day
The 41-year-old actor hit the campaign trail over the weekend for Barack Obama and appeared in the swing state Colorado.
“I had a 13 year old girl come up to me in Colorado -this is a dead true story- and say, “Well, you’re a wealthy white male… why are you here?” And I was like, first of all, that’s the greatest question I’ve been asked on this entire tour,” Jon said (via Buzzfeed) during his appearance. “But secondly, she had conflated somehow in her head that only people vote for their own kind. And I made sure to tell her that that’s absolutely not the case. I vote for what I think is best for all of us. Not simply for me. And that’s unfortunately the message that the other side wants to get across, is you just take care of yourself and you build a fence around yourself and no one else gets help. That’s not how I was raised, that’s not the America I wanna live in and that’s not the America that I believe in.”
FYI: Jon is wearing Paige Denim’s Normandie Twill Pant in Syrah.
