Hillary Clinton Gets A Star Endorsement From The Leading Ladies Of Shondaland

The actresses salute her as a "champion for us all."

Producer Shonda Rhimes and the leading actresses from her various hit ABC shows endorsed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for president in a new video released Thursday.

“Scandal” star Kerry Washington, “Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo and “How to Get Away With Murder” star Viola Davis took turns comparing Clinton to their on-screen characters.

"Every day, I wake up and play a brilliant, complex, overqualified, get-it-done woman who obsessively fights for justice, who cares, who gives a voice to the voiceless, who gets knocked down and always gets back up," the three actresses take turns saying.

“Our characters are on television. ... But the real world has Hillary Clinton -- a bonafide rolls-up-her-sleeves, fights-for-what's-right, in-it-for-you, won't-back-down, champion for us all," the women continue.

The ad ends with them saying, “I’m with Hillary.”

Clinton tweeted her thanks to the crew for the endorsement:

In February, Clinton visited the set of “Scandal” when she was in Los Angeles for a fundraising event.
