Jimmy Stewart's Daughter Not Here for Trump/George Bailey Comparison



** at the Republican National Convention, speaker Natalie Harp compared Trump to Stewart's classic character George Bailey: "George Bailey is given a great gift: The chance to see what the world would be like without him. Tonight, Mr. President, we’d like to give you that same gift." Harp went on to compare Hillary Clinton to Mr. Potter and invoked a Pottersville-type world where she was president.

** in a letter to the New York Times, Stewart's daughter Kelly Stewart Harcourt lambasted the comparison: “Given that this beloved American classic is about decency, compassion, sacrifice and a fight against corruption, our family considers Ms. Harp’s analogy to be the height of hypocrisy and dishonesty.”

The absolute GALL. Anyone w a brain can see we're already in an even worse Pottersville. Also, I would LOVE to live in a world where Trump was never born, my God.
