This Is Spinal Tap will reunite on October 14 for a virtual fundraiser to benefit Pennsylvania Democrats. Reiner will team up with Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer to reminisce about the making of the movie, with anti-Trump comedian Patton Oswalt serving as moderator.
“Every dollar raised goes directly towards ending Trumpism by winning Pennsylvania,” the official invitation reads.

The swing state is once again in play. Joe Biden has repeatedly emphasized his Pennsylvania roots during campaign events, reminiscing about growing up in Scranton. While Biden spent the first ten years of his life in Pennsylvania, he and his family moved to Delaware in 1953 and remained there.

murderer and a white supremacist. He has also said that people who vote for the president are white supremacists.
This is Reiner’s second cast reunion to benefit Joe Biden’s bid for the White House. The filmmaker recently
