Tri-Valley Herald: “Protesters marched up Market Street to the Civic Center, where celebrity speakers including actor Martin Sheen and singers Bonnie Raitt and Joan Baez addressed the crowd.” An actor who plays the President, gives a speech at a real demonstration. That crosses a line.

If politicians serve in office beholden to special interests, then why can’t an actor can remain political while portraying a politician? (Martin Sheen was politically active well before he signed up to play the president on The West Wing)

It may cross the line, but against the backdrop of today’s political landscape, it seems so insignificant.
