Celebs Plead With Congress in New Video: Save Us From Trump!
A group of Hollywood liberals are now coming together to call on Congress to "obstruct" the Republican-led Congress and the incoming Trump administration.
In a video featuring actors and actresses like Sally Field, Rosie Perez, Steve Buscemi and "Westworld's" Jeffrey Wright, the group Humanity for Progress argues that the President-elect stands for "xenophobia, racism, and misogyny."
The group was formerly called Humanity for Hillary during the presidential campaign.
They asked supporters to tweet or email the video to their Congressional representatives.
"We demand that you block nominees who threaten the rights of women, the LGBT community, people of color, immigrants and the poor," the celebs declared.
The video goes on to demand that Congress "obstruct and defeat" any legislation that "violates our core values as diverse Americans."
It concludes by saying that the message is "signed" by the majority of the American people, a reference to Donald Trump's loss in the popular vote.
Along with the actors, authors Janet Mock and Touré, fashion designer Naeem Khan and developer Bruce Ratner also participated.
Watch the video above and let us know your thoughts.
The "Outnumbered" panel, including Jesse Watters, weighed in on the celebrity outcry over Donald Trump. Watters argued that Hollywood is not a "paragon of virtue" and Americans don't want political lectures from celebrities.
Kennedy and Watters agreed that these celebrity anti-Trump videos do not matter and are having the "opposite effect" by turning off a majority of voters.
