The Election's Big Loser: Celebrity Endorsements


As if Americans actually care what celebrities think about politics, they came out of the woodwork this election cycle to tell us. And they completely failed.  No matter how hard the celebrities try, they just can't turn their fan base, no matter how large and adoring, into votes for Leftist politicians.

Oprah Winfrey, utterly adored by tens of millions of Americans, went all-out in her endorsement of Stacey Abrams, a far-left democratic candidate for Governor of Georgia. Oprah went so far as to not only endorse Abrams, but make campaign appearances with her and even knocked on doors asking people to vote for Abrams. Also endorsing and campaigning for Abrams was John Legend. 

Abrams lost to GOP candidate Brian Kemp.  So much for Oprah's star power. This failure may further convince Oprah not to run for President in 2020.

But Oprah wasn't the only failed celebrity endorsement of the election. Taylor Swift's surprise endorsement of Phil Bredesen, Marsha Blackburn's democratic opponent for Senate in Tennessee, was loudly proclaimed by the news media, who called it "brave" and "stirring" and other exciting adjectives. Despite this, Bredesen lost to Blackburn. 

In the Florida Governor's race, none other than Diddy (formerly P. Diddy. formerly Puff Daddy, formerly Sean Combs) exercised his star status by endorsing far-left socialist loon and democratic candidate Andrew Gillum for Governor. Diddy went so far as to tell his fans that voting for Gillum was a matter of life and death. "Vote or Die!" was a phrase Diddy used multiple times. Gillum lost to Republican Ron DeSantis.

Ted Cruz's Democrat opponent Beto O’Rourke racked up a number of celebrity endorsements, including basketball legend LeBron James, country music legend Willie Nelson, and pop music legend BeyoncĂ©, among many others. He also raked in tens of millions of dollars for his campaign (and, apparently, to help finance the caravans of illegal aliens from Central America), much of it from Hollywood and celebrity democratic donors. Still, O'Rourke was rejected by Texas voters. 

With this election's many fails, perhaps celebrities will finally get the message: We don't care what you think, just entertain us.  Somehow, I doubt they will.
