Hand In Hand Got Political

From Oprah to George Clooney to Barbra Streisand… It seems like every single celebrity showed up for the Hurricane Relief Telethon raising $44 Million Dollars for the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
The telethon got political starting with Stevie Wonder.

That being compared to the way Kanye West got real after Hurricane Katrina.

What role should politics play with hurricane relief?
