MARTIN SHEEN, DEBRA MESSING AND MORE CELEBS WANT THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE TO VOTE AGAINST TRUMP

A group of celebrities have come together in a new PSA to urge the Republican members of the Electoral College to change the outcome of the 2016 Election and deny Donald Trump the Presidency.  The celebrities that take part in the video are Martin Sheen, Debra Messing, James Cromwell, BD Wong, Noah Wyle, Freda Payne, Bob Odenkirk, J. Smith Cameron, Michael Urie, Moby, Mike Farrell, Loretta Swit, Richard Schiff, Christine Lahti, Steven Pasquale, Dominic Fumusa, Emily Tyra, and Talia Balsam.  Martin Sheen kicks off the video saying, “Republican voters of the Electoral College, this message is for you.”  Debra Messing says that Trump “lacks the necessary stability” to be President of the United States.  The celebs go on to urge the Electoral College members to vote for anyone other than Trump: “I’m not asking you to vote for Hillary Clinton…Any eligible person, no matter which party they belong to.”

The celebs then address the EC directly: “You have the position, the authority, and the opportunity to go down in the books as an American hero who changed the course of history.”

Watch the whole PSA below.

This video seems to model the Joss Whedon directed PSAs during the campaign in which celebs such as Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson said don’t vote for Trump.  You can check out The WANNA’s previous post on all the 2016 political PSAs here.

The WANNA wants to hear from you!  Are you happy with the 2016 Election results?  Or do you agree with these celebrities about a revote against Trump?

WHAT IF THE POPULAR VOTE WAS MAJORITY? SENATOR BARBARA BOXER SEEKS TO END ELECTORAL COLLEGE

One week after Donald Trump’s Presidential victory over Hillary Clinton, retiring California Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer filed Senate legislation that seeks to abolish the Electoral College.  Boxer took issue with Trump’s win since Clinton was shown to have won the popular vote by a margin of over one million votes.  Boxer said, “When all the ballots are counted, Hillary Clinton will have won the popular vote by a margin that could exceed two million votes, and she is on track to have received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history except Barack Obama…This is the only office in the land where you can get more votes and still lose the presidency.”

Boxer called the Electoral College an “outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society.”  Boxer’s proposed bill would be an amendment to the Constitution, so it will be a long shot to pass in the heavily Republican Congress.  But that hasn’t stopped Senator Boxer from trying!

Boxer pulled out all the stops and called out Trump himself.  Boxer cited a couple of Trump’s tweets from 2012 where he called the Electoral College a “disaster.” Boxer used this to her advantage, saying, “I couldn't agree more. One person, one vote!”

Boxer’s bill raises the question, what if the popular vote actually decided our President?

Do you think it’s time for the Electoral College to go?

After a long night of waiting for all the Election results to roll in on November 8th, Donald Trump was named President-elect of the United States with a win over Hillary Clinton.  Throughout Hillary Clinton’s campaign, a long list of Hollywood heavies supported her and dissuaded people from voting for Trump.  These celebrities included Beyonce, Jay-Z, Scarlett Johansson, Madonna, Adele, Robert Downey Jr., Meryl Streep, Robert DeNiro, and so many more.  The WANNA kept up with the celebrities who said “I’m with her,” and the many celeb-driven PSAs dedicated to voting against Trump.

Yet even with all this backing from Hollywood A-listers, it was just not enough to win Hillary the Presidency.

On Election Night, November 8th, left-leaning celebrities took to Twitter to express their shock, fear and sadness over Hillary’s loss and Trump’s Presidential victory.  The WANNA has gathered the most emotional celebrity tweets below.

WHO ARE THE CELEBS THAT WON'T BE VOTING FOR TRUMP NOVEMBER 8TH? WATCH THIS...

It's no surprise that when it comes to politics, the majority of A-listers tend to lean to the left and the 2016 Presidential election is no exception.  Safe to say, the current Presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, is a screenplay no one could have written.  Of course Tinsel Town still has a Conservative following but, several famous Democrats have made it their mission to publicly denounce Trump and stand behind Hillary this election year!  Over the years, Hollywood is known for creating PSA’s that encourage fans to vote.  This year, several stars took the message one step further and flat out revealed why you don't wanna vote for Trump.

The WANNA curated a list of celebs below, who took the time to create PSA’s and "video" messages that share one very clear message, vote for Hillary!

Kathy Griffin

The comedian says “Donald, F*** Off!” in this hilarious new take on a moving Hillary Clinton campaign video.

Aziz Ansari

Actor and comedian Aziz Ansari sarcastically addresses the fact that people seem to “need” celebrity voting ads to actually get out and vote.  On the more serious note, Ansari asserts that Trump “doesn’t believe in climate change” and “hates brown people.”

Robert DeNiro

This is one of the more scathing and direct anti-Trump videos, in which Robert DeNiro calls Trump a number of things, including “pig,” “blatantly stupid,” and says he would like to “punch him in the face.”  This one needs to be seen to be believed.

Keegan-Michael Key

Key & Peele star Keegan-Michael Key hilariously “forecasts” a Donald Trump presidency in this video from Joss Whedon.  Key references “smug looks” and “morons” who don’t believe in climate change, an apparent jab at Trump.

Joss Whedon Star-Packed “Save the Day” PSA

Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, James Franco, Julianne Moore, and more A-listers appear in this PSA created by Joss Whedon to address the more serious issues facing us this election.  One bit in particular has Don Cheadle emphatically calling out a “racist, abusive coward,” a not-so-subtle prod at Trump.  The celebs also address, “A man whose signature move is firing things.”  They insist that, “Every vote matters,” and jokingly bribe viewers with a Mark Ruffalo “nude scene” in his next movie.

Leonardo DiCaprio

In this short but important video, Leonardo DiCaprio, a longtime environmental activist and UN Representative for climate change, indirectly speaks about Trump’s ignorance to climate change.  If Leo can’t convince people to get out and vote, then no one can!
