Albert Einstein defined insanity by trying the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Under those conditions, Hollywood celebrities are insane for thinking they can still stop Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, another group of Hollywood actors including Rosie Perez, Sally Field, Jeffrey Wright, and Steve Buscemi released a new political video titled #StandUpForUs where they try to convince Congress to fight the Trump agenda.
“We demand that you block nominees who threaten the rights of women, the LGBT community, people of color, immigrants and the poor,” Field said in the video.
In 2016, there were more political celebrity videos than there were spin-offs of Law & Order and none of them mattered.
No one cared when Martin Sheen, Debra Messing, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, James Franco, Julianne Moore, Don Cheadle, Neil Patrick Harris, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jane Lynch, Elizabeth Banks, Moby, Adam Scott, Patti LuPone, or Amber Rose made their video.
