    It looks like a scene of House of Card….The perfect family in campaign…

  • Ilovekitkats

    He definitely brought his huge chin.

  • bbm

    she looks exactly like Jen

    What a pathetic state our country is in when a Hollywood actor (and not even a very good one!) who didn’t even graduate college can give speeches before heads of government. Sickening. Plus, he looks like an asshole.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    And his arrogant attitude.

  • Welly

    Hate Ben. And he is not very good actor. He looks like asshole. Violet could use a haircut. She should be in school. Voilot getting her pictures taken that’s not right.

  • bledel

    I kinda miss Jen in badass roles like Alias, Daredevil…She is very good at it !

  • Courtney Puzzo

    just because they chose acting as their profession doesn’t mean they gave up their rights to be involved in government or teach their children the importance of it. this arrogant bastard wants to play Paul Newman in a movie which he has no business doing Paul served honorably in the military during world war II and among other charities supported military ones like Fisher house and Wounded warriors and his daughters now continue that in his absence and their mothers inability to do so

  • FlakesofSunlite

    Why would Ben Affleck be concerned about Africa? Is it out of the goodness of his heart, because if you think about it, Its the birthplace of the human race. Or is he worried about Terrorist groups forming or worse? Is he worried about Ebola and desease? Or is he concerned about natural resources? All of the above? Why?

  • FlakesofSunlite

    Is he trying to run for Prez-i-dent? Great. I picture him now, newly elected, trying to tackle Healthcare. He will shoot himself before he even gets close to foreign policy…

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Right…we send money over and over again to Africa. The Warlords steal it and give the food and supplies to their troops(terrorists.) The people continue to starve and the Warlords get powerful on us. When they are fed, they over reproduce and we have triple the starving folks the next generation. It has happened several times in Brazil and Bangladesh and African countries since the 1960s.

    They are over reproducing. They need to stop….now. We feed their starving masses and there are triple the amount in 25 years. We can not feed triple the amount in 25 years. We are not feeding 10,000,000 people…we are starving to death 30,000,000.

    We must teach them birth control. It is the best thing we can do. To hell with religious objections to birth control and liberals throwing good money after bad.

    I agree with Jon. Africa has always had a powerful potential but never had the united leadership to live up to it.
    While I do not have a lot of money I prefer to send it to a local homeless shelter when I can and upon occasion for Habitat to Humanity which seems to do good things like building homes for people who do not have one.

  • Anya

    Yes, because one day out of school to see something government related is totally gonna mess up with her future education and her attitude towards attending school. And seriously, haircut? are you discussing little girl’s hair?

    Did you hear any of his speech or what the other there.He’s not working with the government .He’s working directly with the people , and organizations to create jobs, educate them so they can sustain themselves, and not rely on other countries for help.He doing much more than celebrities that are given money or adopt kids and think they’re helping people when it’s the opposite.

  • ufo medium

    Yes, totally violated and TH filth. My life is over

  • DINA PHOTOG

    He looks super-thrilled. She looks, however, strangely experienced, like she’s done that kind of thing before. Was Jen a diplomat before becoming an actress… interesting… 8O

  • danille

    yeah ,except he’s not going into politics and he’s been going to Africa for 7 years before the media even knew what he was up to.

  • anonymous 2

    Agree. It’s like celebrity’s opinions and knowledge are more important than those of scholar. Sad…
