They made a list of more than 30 celebrities including Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Billy Joel to appear in their ad campaign to "inspire hope" about coronavirus, but they ended up with only Dennis Quaid, CeCe Winans and Hasidic singer Shulem Lemmer.

Shortly after former Trump campaign official Michael Caputo helped transfer $300 million from the CDC to fund the new nationwide campaign to "defeat despair," planning efforts ramped up early in the summer, but celebrities are refusing to participate, and staff are arraying against it. Some complain of the unstated aim of helping Trump’s re-election.

"This is a boondoggle," said an HHS official who requested anonymity to discuss a sensitive department project. "We're in the middle of a pandemic … we could use that quarter of a billion dollars on buying PPE [personal protective equipment], not promoting PSAs with C-list celebrities."

Health officials envisioned matching top Trump appointees with celebrities in a multi-million-dollar ad blitz, circulating wish lists that would have paired Medicaid chief and longtime Mike Pence adviser Seema Verma with "preferred celebrities" like Joel, Swift, Timberlake, singer Lady Gaga and more than a half-dozen others, according to a document obtained by POLITICO.

Caputo also said in a Facebook video on Sept. 13 that the campaign was "demanded of me by the president of the United States. Personally."
