The Game is Up: Disillusioned Trump Voters Tell Their Stories
Former Congressman Joe Walsh. Chicago, Illinois
Still a Tea Party Republican, Walsh takes us through his transition from “grab my musket” right wing shock jock, to a man who claimed he’d even vote for Sanders & socialized medicine before making Trump the King he wants to become. Footage includes Joe “Tea Party footage”, Iowa Rallies, New Hampshire Primary and interview at Joe’s home in Illinois, along with full access to his social media before 2016 and since.
Former Chair of the Brooklyn Young Republicans, Batya Goldberg
An ardent GOP rising star as a teen, Batya was all in for Trump. It was her parents experiences as Soviet refugees, plus his pathetic response to Corona witnessed while she was visiting in Israel, that ended her promising Young Republican career. We’ve shot on-location interviews with Batya in Tel Aviv including B-roll, plus extensive support materials of her all-out support for MAGA. (including from CPAC, Turning Point, the Inauguration and Inaugural Ball).
Christopher R. Gibbs, Ohio Farmer and Former RCCC Chair, Shelby County Ohio
A self-described “Reagan Republican”, Gibbs feels deserted by a party that won’t admit Trump’s tariffs have already devastated US agriculture. Including an interview with Chris in Ohio; aerial drone footage of the 560-acre farm, lots of farm b-roll and early photos/film of his life on the farm.
Veteran David Weissman, Florida
How does a man go from “I believed in demonizing Hillary Clinton” to crying in compassion for a trans woman? This is THE question of our time, and the story of David Weissman in this powerful segment of The Game Is Up: The Veteran Segment. David Weissman retired as an infantryman and moved on to online trolling and “lock her up” chants with Americans in Israel for Trump. What triggered his escape? Two women comics – first Sarah K. Silverman then Sarah O’Connell. How? We’ll show you his story. Was he targeted as a member of the US military? We hear David talk about his entire journey.
Evangelical Couple, Ron & Cyndi Hawthorne, Detroit
Ron and Cyndi Hawthorne are a blessedly odd couple in some ways – she a Christian girl who grew up in what she calls the “conservative evangelical bubble”: he was a Democratic Detroit autoworker’s son who got into trouble with the law and did some time. He and Cyndi are thoughtful, passionate and articulate, and determined to speak out and do the right thing this time.
Evangelical & Liberty University Grad, Nathan Munson, Lynchburg
Being a Christian is part of Nathan’s identity, so when Liberty University told students to vote Trump or vote against Jesus, he complied. He’s come to believe that Christians are shaming themselves by adopting Trump as their savior. We’ve conducted our pre-interview with Nathan and plan to shoot his on-camera interview upon his return home in mid-July, and include footage from his graduation where Trump himself was the speaker.
