Celebrities Beg Congress To ‘Vigorously Oppose’ Donald Trump Once He’s President
Celebrities haven’t gotten over the fact that Donald Trump is going to be our next president.
In a new video published by “Humanity for Progress” Tuesday, Sally Field, Steve Buscemi, Keegan-Michael Key, Rosie Perez and other celebrities begged members of Congress to “vigorously oppose [Trump]” and “obstruct anything [he does] that violates our core values as diverse Americans.”
“I’m mad,” the video begins. “Flabbergasted. Furious. Concerned for my children.” (RELATED: Hillary Clinton Was Just Spotted Out In Public Alone)
“The majority of Americans — regardless of who they voted for — did not vote for racism, sexism, xenophobia, and yet, Donald Trump won. Since he won, hate crimes are rising. Women have been attacked in his name. People of color attacked in his name.”
The celebrities threatened that they wouldn’t “remain silent” and asked members of Congress to “block nominees who threaten the rights of women, the LGBTQ community, people of color, immigrants and the poor.”
“You are our last line of defense,” the stars continued.
“Here’s what we demand: To the extent that Trump pursues racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, anti-worker, anti-Semitic, we demand that you vigorously oppose him.”
