Martin Sheen Wants Republican Electors To Vote For Anybody But Trump

Speaking as someone who has lost some friends(?) over my ongoing and consistent criticism of Donald Trump, the following video makes me even more relieved that Hillary Clinton lost. These guys have learned nothing. If Jay-Z and Katy Perry couldn’t keep Trump out of the White House, what makes Jed Bartlet and Hot Lips Houlihan think they can?

A guy who used to play the President of the United States on NBC really doesn’t like the idea of an NBC star becoming President of the United States. Here he is, along with some other faces you may or may not recognize anymore, trying to make it stop:

“I’m not asking you to vote for Hillary Clinton.”
“I’m not asking you to vote for Hillary Clinton.”
“I’m not asking you to vote for Hillary Clinton.”

NOTE: They’re asking you to vote for Hillary Clinton.

These people have the right to do this. They can stand in front of a white backdrop and make a video. Make a video. Make a video. About whatever they want. Having failed to convince enough Americans in enough places on Nov. 8 that their candidate was preferable, they can make a last-ditch effort to prevent their worst nightmare.

They can pretend they suddenly care about the Constitution and the Federalist Papers. They can pretend to respect the same people they’ve openly sneered at for eight years. They can pretend they didn’t just get done yelling at Trump for claiming the election was rigged. They can peel Debra Messing off her therapist’s couch and prop her up in front of a camera to alarm and disturb each and every viewer.

Look, Mr. Sheen, if you really think there’s a way to avoid President Trump, if this is how you choose to cope with your worldview being completely shattered, go right ahead. I’m not looking forward to the next four years any more than you are. But eventually, you’ll need to accept reality.

Reality.

Reality.
