It's cancellation season for television networks, and Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis., is reacting just like any fan scorned by callous Hollywood executives.
After ABC canceled the sitcom "Last Man Standing," Walker called the network out for "playing politics" with a popular show. Tweeting a link to a Daily Wire article that made the case the show was canceled for its conservative bent, Walker wrote to leading actor Tim Allen, "Looks like @ABC is playing politics with your show despite decent ratings. Sad."
The article Walker linked to outlined a compelling argument that ABC canceled the successful show despite its popularity and profitability because ABC and its parent company Disney do not want to promote its politics. "Through his character, the politically conservative Allen has poked fun at Hillary Clinton, political correctness, and the Left at large. Worse still, he has created a popular, sympathetic and likable television personality who holds the beliefs and values our entertainment and media elites want to tell us can only belong to Nazis," it explained.
Walker tweeted a photo of him and his two sons with Allen back in January, ribbing the actor for supporting the Detroit Lions over the Green Bay Packers.
Allen has yet to respond, but it's safe to say he appreciates the governor's support.
Walker's tweet came just hours before he named a campaign chief, signaling his intention to run for a third term as the governor of Wisconsin.
