In September, a bunch of self-righteous celebrities implored Americans not to vote for Donald Trump.
In December, a bunch of self-righteous celebrities implored Republican members of the Electoral College not to vote for Trump.
And now, with Trump’s inauguration just weeks away, a bunch of self-righteous celebrities are imploring Congress to block anything Trump tries to do in office:
A slew of high-profile stars — including Sally Field, former “The View” co-host Rosie Perez, “Westworld’s” Jeffrey Wright, Keegan-Michael Key and “Boardwalk Empire” actor Steve Buscemi — are calling on Congress to “vigorously oppose” any of President-elect Donald Trump’s “racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, anti-worker, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic, anti-environmental policies.”
“We demand that you block nominees who threaten the rights of women, the LGBT community, people of color, immigrants and the poor,” Key and Field say in the video released Tuesday, the same day the 115th Congress is poised to be sworn in.
In the video, the celebrities insist that, “Since [Trump] won, hate crimes are rising, women have been attacked in his name, people of color have been attacked in his name.” Never mind that many of the reported hate crimes have proven to be complete hoaxes.
