B-list celebrities aren't very bright

White House election resultsThe liberal media, activists, and celebrities think they have one more shot at reversing the election of 2016, as electors gather today in their state capitols to cast their votes for president of the United States.

Hollywood has a message for the brave men and women who will cast their electoral votes for president, starting with "President Josiah Bartlett" himself, actor Martin Sheen. Their message is to the Republican members of the Electoral College, who supposedly "have position, the authority, and the opportunity to go down in the books as an American hero who changed the course of history."

They are not really clear about for whom they want these would-be heroes to vote, but it is patently obvious whom they are against. Scott Whitlock of the Media Research Center (MRC) says these B-listers are not very bright.

"Typical from liberal celebrities … who are the best Republicans? They're Republicans who go against the Republican Party," he comments.

The media is joining in the chorus as well, including Washington Post columnist EJ Dionne, Jr.'s editorial saying, "The popular vote shows that turning on Trump would not be a rejection of the public will."

"Certainly you did not hear the liberal media and journalists in the media complaining about this in September and October, where … they thought Hillary was going to win," Whitlock submits.

Now these media elite and celebrities know – and an AP poll of the electors affirms – that they have no shot at denying Donald Trump the White House. So why are they doing this?

"They're trying to make Trump illegitimate in the same way they made George W. Bush illegitimate," the MRC spokesman explains.

But Whitlock says it did not work for POTUS #43, and it is not going to work for POTUS #45.
