Celebs Urge Electors To Dump Trump [VIDEO]

Via Mediaite:

There’s a new celebrity PSA out tonight featuring some big-name actors asking members of the electoral college to do the right thing and step in to vote their conscience (a.k.a. not Donald Trump). Martin Sheen, Richard Schiff, Debra Messing, James Cromwell, BD Wong, Bob Odenkirk, Moby, and some other big names all appear in the video for Unite For America, explaining that the electoral college was designed to allow people to step in and prevent a “demagogue” or someone uniquely unqualified to be president from doing so. They make it clear they’re not advocating a vote for Clinton, just “any eligible person” they trust to be competent as president.

      Yup. The only ones with an impact on the conservative electors are the priests, pastors, etc.

      • joeyj1220

        and Kanye… don’t forget him

    • My first thought as to their reaction if they ever see it as well.

    • JCF

      Yeah, I was wondering if this would help or hurt…

  • perversatile
    • Gustav2

      That would be a good decision. Persons of color should never approach a stranded white Trump voter. They are likely to be armed, and we know how that story usually ends.

      I didn’t invite a neighbor to our holiday party because they had a Trump/Pence sign in their yard and she rants online at anyone who suggests he doesn’t know what he is doing.

        This guy on Grindr was complaining that nobody will hook up with him because he voted for Trump.

        I told him: Erections have consequences.

            Other than, perhaps, some cosmetic work and losing 25 pounds.

            The latter is in the works; a bout of gastritis is annoying and somewhat painful, but great to enforce a diet. I’m down six pounds already.

My D.C. lover was with me for an AIDS conference in Texas that was taking place during the Old Pecan Street Festival. It was a warm day and we were shirtless (well, as I recall, I had a tasteful open vest on), when we heard someone behind us yell, “Faggot!” He turned around and I said, “How egotistical are you that assume he’s calling out to you?”

          There’s still a week and a half before Christmas, dam it!

          • Treant

            With only ten days to go, it’s going to require a flood of activity.

          • Michael R
          • Gustav2

            Anastasia is very old fashioned and traditional. She decorates on Christmas Eve and keeps it up for 12 days until Epiphany.

          • (((GC)))

            So if she had a store, she wouldn’t be playing Christmas carols since before Thanksgiving. 🙂

          • Gustav2

            And I would shop there…but you know Advent music sucks.

          • (((GC)))

            Would “O come, O come, Emmanuel” count?
            I can’t think of any other well-known “Christmas songs” that would work. Of course winter-themed secular songs like “Frosty the Snowman”, “Let it Snow!”, “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer” 🙂 etc. should be fine too.

        • Dazzer

          To be fair, that’s still a helluva lot more festive than my house at the moment.

          Current Christmas decorations consist of a bedraggled old Christmas wreath that I found somewhere hat I’ve placed around the candle in front of my house mate’s Buddha statue.

          I also found some Christmas fairy lights that don’t work, so I’ve sort of left them in a huddled heap on the hall table in the vain hope that one of my other flatmates will either untangle and sort them out or throw them in the rubish bins.

          • Jeffg166

            I thought about decorating. I had a ly down until the thought passed.

          • (((GC)))

            If you can score a set of Lazy Man Lights, put them up once, leave them up all year, change color combinations at will.

            (I’m sure there are articles explaining how to create newer, better versions with RGB LED ribbons…)

            If it’s not for sale at my local hardware shop (all of seven and a half minutes slow walk away), I’m not going to go out of my way.

            Given that only five years ago, he was still debating whether candles were the work of the Devil, I’m not certain he’d have anything that hi-tech.

          • (((GC)))

            Friends would leave their Christmas lights turned on all year, because they liked it. Then in December, they’d usually be away and leave their lights off. It really confused the neighbors!

          • Tiger Quinn

            Well, we got a beautiful 6 foot pine from Oregon that we spent an amazing evening together decorating – and then had to take down because it turned out we were insanely allergic to it. That’s dampened the holiday a bit. Also: Trump.

          • (((GC)))

            Sorry to hear about your allergies!
            (And a majority of Americans are allergic to tRump… there are last-ditch efforts to block him from taking office: http://lettertoelectors.org/ )

          • I have up the standard silver Christmas wreath the SigO picked up a few years ago. It’s hung over the dream catcher he put up before that. I’m fond of dreamcatchers, and have occasionally taught classes in making them, but every time I open the door to come inside I think about how the traditional placement of a dreamcatcher is above one’s bed. It’s the way when we moved to Arizona, he asked me to smudge the condo for a blessing ceremony, and then he handed me a bundle of lavender. Lavender is not native our reservations, and we usually use sage and/or sweetgrass for smudges, or for specific ceremonies, cedar, tobacco, or juniper. But I knew he meant well, and the most important thing is intent, so I smudged the condo with lavender. From my own training, the cleansing song I was using didn’t really need the smudge to work, but if it made him feel, better–fine by me. It’s why I’ve never commented on the dreamcatcher, other than to smile at him.

            The wreath is the only Christmas decor, since he’s spending Christmas with his family in Salt Lake City, and I’ll be up in Seattle. I’ll be staying in an older home where the owner goes full out on fresh cuttings of evergreens, wreathes, tree, and a lot of shiny brightness. Ho, ho, ho.

        My Mom & Step Dad love to Cruise, probably spending 1/2 the year at sea, ‘Pops’ has become one of the most feared card sharps/ poker players on the high seas, only after becoming personae non gratae at several / almost all of the land locked casinos, Mom used to say, ”we’d like to stay at the Borgata, but we love taking Donald Trump’s money home with us.”
        Mom and Pops are regulars on several ships, everybody loves a winner, but people like Pops cause he’s kind hearted generous with his winnings, and always remembers people’s names. They love mom because she is probably the most egalitarian person who has ever lived, tips lavishly, and manages to lose a fair portion of her husband’s winnings playing the 5$ Slots.
        Long Story short, too late. M & P just got home from a 2 week cruise, Mom said it didn’t start of well, because 4 of the people at their table of 8, were two tubby ‘gone to seed’, loud, demanding assholes, and their two pinched faced, tacky over-perfumed, shrill, wine guzzling whores. The second night They discovered they were not just regular Republicans, but Beltway Republicans and slavish devotees of Heir Trump, and all things Trump.
        The next day Mom asked the maitre d’ to please move them to another table, even early dining would be fine, although early dining is rubbish because it’s all early birds, families with children, tour groups, and game show winner . The maitre d’, said he would do his best , Mom being a true Southern Lady said, “Well don’t go to too much trouble I know they keep you hopin’ around the clock.” She thanked him, he thanked her, Mom gave him a hug, and walked away.
        Later that day Mom & Pops received a invitation to join the Captain for Cocktails, Mom hauled out her black velvet Patou, was only slightly over over dressed, met a celebrity whose name she cannot remember and his wife, who was a “regular person but way to young for him” The had what Pops referred to as , ‘a pleasant time and a unique experience’ .

        Later that evening , upon entering the dining room, they were approached by the maitre d , he smiled, said, ”I hope you will be pleased with the arrangements” and proceeded to walk them to their original table, ‘those awful people’ replaced with a very nice young couple on their first vacation in six years without their children, and a older lesbian couple, who were very well read, also liked to gamble, and the had wonderful conversations about books and their favorite authors, the young couple were simply enthralled just to be around other adults and have a uninterrupted meal, followed by deserts that did not have to be shared or tablecloths that had to be scrubbed.
        Mom was dying to find out what happened ‘to those ass holes” but thought it would be unseemly to show too much curiosity and decided to devote them”nary a thought more” .

        • Clive Johnson

          Excellent.

          • perversatile

            You should hear it first hand. Mom is what you might call raunchy-as-hell-pee-you-pants-funny-&-curses-like-a-sailor.
            Her personal motto is:
            God-Fuckin-Forbid I find somebody who left their dog in the car on a hot day with the windows rolled up, I will go to jail over shit like that”

        Oh honey, you don’t need someone like that at your party to begin with. They would probably end up making a scene or something.

        But slightly off-topic, did you remember to invite Matt Lauer? Are Marlo and Phil coming?

        • Anastasia Beaverhousen

          Matt isn’t coming after that mess he made in the bathroom from the pickled shrimp incident. He is too embarrassed.

    • Treant

      I have to admit, I probably wouldn’t either.

      Having them tell me how their accident is MY fault while they pick my pocket isn’t my idea of a good time.

      Assuming this person’s life isn’t in danger (and it certainly doesn’t look that way) and would merely be inconvenienced, then totally.

    • Long and long ago, when I had first moved to Seattle to go to grad school, I needed to call a tow truck. A 30 something man got out of his car and asked me if I were gay, not a question I was anticipating in the context. Then he explained, “If you’re gay, we give you a 10% discount on our service.” Over the years I’ve encountered this “special discount” from others. It always made me think of the Doyle short story about the League of Red-Headed Men, where if you’re not a red-headed man, you don’t know about the League.

      • perversatile

        Have at it. Remember your personal well being is as equally important. So, take a moment to assess your melanin distribution, leave your wallet and any other valuables in the glove compartment. Call someone, even if it’s your own voice mail, leave a message containing the time/date location, car model: make/color and the license plate numbers. Approach the car slowly, make sure you can see their hands at all times. You must maintain a unbreachable facade of heteronormative, stereotypically, traditional male behavior, and to a lesser extent, actually be biologically male in order to avoid the possibility of a physical attack or violent confrontation.
        By all means stop and help. Altruism is a rare enviable luxury.

    Nice, but their mistake is assuming Trump supporters even have a conscience.

  • Guest

    The electors on the right will never listen. The same celebrities they watch and like are just elites to them. Well, that and people on the right, will hold any contradictory facts and see no issue as long as their wanted belief system is their reality. And they will ignore any fact that is not in line with their wants. And Rush says liberalism is a mental illness. More projection. Example after example we have proof of the soulless mind of the right. Need 1 example? Pro birth, not pro life, as soon as that kids is born, strap some shovels on the feet and let it kick for coal. They really are a sick and twisted group.

        First, thanks for the source.

        And I never wrote that Rush was the original source or even the source. I wrote he said it, and that is a fact. Give it an effing rest. You do that crap all of the time. You read into a comment what you want there, toss up a strawman and comment on that, as if the poster is wrong or at fault. You could have worded this as an FYI as to Rush taking it. And I am not asking what a “boybLimbaugh” is or what it means.

    The sad part is, even if there were ample evidence of Putin’s tampering, and ample evidence that Trump knew and condoned it, his supporters would not care. They’d just say “Still better than Hillary.”

    Oh look, it’s another “liberals are trying to do something so lets read endless snotty comments about how everything they are doing is wrong” article. I don’t get enough of these lately.

  • Have you heard that while Putin’s popularity is still running in the red, it has jumped up remarkably among the republicans? Which really shows they don’t care how they win, as long as they do, and as long as it hurts Hillary.
