In case you haven’t heard, President Donald Trump will be in Minneapolis today, continuing his attempt to turn Minnesota red in 2020. It hasn't gone well so far.

The president and Mayor Jacob Frey have been in a Twitter standoff over the city's bill to pay for the rally, and a heavily armed conspiracy group is promising to provide a “security” detail outside the Target Center.

Now the celebs are weighing in. Julia Louis-Dreyfus knows.

“You know what I love about Minnesota?” Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus tweeted. “They elect very few jerks. Donald Trump wants to change that.”

She’s one of the people donating to a campaign called the DFL Money Blizzard, which is raising money for Minnesota’s Democratic Party. Why does Louis-Dreyfus care about Minnesota politics? The website sums it up nicely:

“If Trump flips Minnesota red in 2020, it will be nearly impossible for Democrats to take back the White House,” it says. We are a "blue wall” keeping Trumpian politics at bay. The original goal was to get 1,000 donors before the president touched down in Minneapolis, but contributors soon left that in the dust.

Louis-Dreyfus is far from the only big-name celeb concerned. Other Hollywood names are ponying up.
