After the midterm election results rolled in on Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning, revealing that Democrats had taken the House of Representatives, though not nearly by the margins the left deluded themselves with in their predictions, folks in Hollywood came out of the woodwork to share their thoughts and opinions on the events that transpired.
While losing the House was certainly bad news, Republicans did in fact pick up several Senate seats, so they have that going for them, which is nice.
Anyway, here’s how the Hollywood elites responded to the election results.
“But the best news is that once again we WON the MOST votes throughout the whole country! In all the House races combined we got 3 MILLION MORE votes than the Repubs,” said Michael Moore on Twitter. “And TEN MILLION MORE in the Senate races! The majority of Americans rejected Trump and all that he stands for!”

Other Hollywood people were excited that the Russia collusion witch hunt would go on unimpeded now that Democrats have control of the U.S. House.
“Trumpie…you f***ed big time now. aint no stopping mueller now… you’re on the run. wait, can you run fatso?” said Ellen Barkin on Twitter.
“Very excited the Dems got the House back and this crook will not continue to go unchecked. Good night!!” said Andy Cohen on Twitter.

Other Hollywood celebrities like Debra Messing and Ava DuVernay were raving about victories for intersectionality politics.
“We won the House back and that is something to celebrate. There will be accountability; the checks & balances that our forefathers imagined. Women won all across this country,” tweeted Debra Messing. Ava DuVernay tweeted: “Democrats flipped the house w/ historic wins by women + people of color, some slashing decades-long red strongholds. And 1.4 million formerly incarcerated people have regained the right to vote. Despite gerrymandering + suppression. Something powerful has happened. Believe that.”

And in case you’re a glutton for punishment, here’s a few more:
To all of those who worked so unbelievably hard to make sure we finally had checks & balances in our country again, a sincere thank u tonight. I am constantly amazed by all of those who are rolling up their sleeves & doing everything that they can do to combat this chaos. ❤️U

I'm deeply relieved that my political party, the Democratic Party will resume leadership of the U.S. House of Representative. The environment will now have some long overdue advocacy in government. And, Congress will start to put a check on this President & his administration. https://t.co/XZS2WhAmWs

Flipping the house despite all the gerrymandering was no small feat. Despite it being expected by the polls, this is still a BFD. The House has so much power to hold the president accountable. I look forward to some real oversight

While it’s easy to get angry at these people for spreading such an awful worldview throughout their perspective fan bases, it’s critical to remember that, unlike the left, we as conservatives really do believe in free speech.
Rather than wanting to silence these individuals, we should be striving to create equal platforms of engagement so that we too can spread our ideas far and wide, engaging in lively, civil debates with people from different belief systems in order to win hearts and minds to our cause.
Rather than grumbling against these celebrities, perhaps we ought to study them. How did they reach the level of influence they now possess? How can we channel some of that without selling out our values?
That’s a more productive use of time than hating on these folks.

Biden Edgy After Putin Summit, Snaps at CNN Reporter
The President later apologized.
Wednesday marked a major milestone in the young Biden presidency, as the Commander in Chief had his first face-to-face pow-wow with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in the apropos nation of Switzerland. The White House and the Kremlin had long been locked in what looked like the first inklings of a new Cold War, as cyber attacks and psychological warfare operations began to ratchet up. This meeting needed to mean something, and that can be quite the task when Putin is involved. So, of course, there were some Kremlin-arranged fireworks to kick the day off, as the US press was seen being manhandled at the beginning of the meeting, within sight of President Biden. It would not be alarming to find out that this was a premeditated action that Putin was well aware would be coming. In their respective remarks at the conclusion of the summit, both leaders seemed optimistic about the results that they’d reached, but US President Biden was undeniably a bit tense during his post-Putin presser. President Joe Biden snapped at CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins on Wednesday, at a press conference following his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. As Biden began leaving the summit, Collins asked the president how he was confident that Russian President Vladimir Putin would change his behavior. “I’m not confident that he will change his behavior. What the hell? What do you do all the time?” Biden snapped. “When did I say I was confident?” Collins replied that Biden had said he would know in three to six months whether the meeting was a success. “What I said was, what will change their behavior is if the rest of the world reacts to them and it diminishes their standing in the world,” Biden said. “I’m not confident of anything; I’m just stating the…
Jon Stewart Lends Credence to Wuhan Lab Leak Theory in Late Night Appearance
The liberal comedian really doesn’t think coronavirus was a natural thing.
For weeks now, as our nation continues to claw its way out of the coronavirus pandemic, our attention continues to turn toward China and their handling of the situation at the onset. The seemingly purposeful downplaying of the premiere outbreak of the disease by Chinese officials is well-documented, and left many wondering if Beijing was hoping to have the rest of the world caught off-guard by the disease. Further, China’s unwillingness to discuss the possibility that the outbreak was related to a nearby laboratory, that happens to specialize in coronavirus strains, has thrown a little more fuel on the skeptical fire. Even liberal media darling Jon Stewart seems to be considering the possibility, at least during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Stewart said, “I think we owe a great debt of gratitude to science. Science has, in many ways, helped ease the suffering of this pandemic, which was more than likely caused by science.” He later added, “Oh my God, there’s a novel respiratory coronavirus overtaking Wuhan, China. What do we do? Oh, you know who we could ask, the Wuhan novel respiratory coronavirus lab. The disease is the same name as the lab. That’s just a little too weird, don’t you think? And then they ask those scientists, they’re like…’So, wait a minute, you work at the Wuhan respiratory coronavirus lab, how did this happen?’ And they’re like, ‘Uhh, a pangolin kissed a turtle?’” Stewart further stated, “Oh my God, there’s been an outbreak of chocolatey goodness near Hershey, Pennsylvania. What do you think happened? Oh, I don’t know maybe a steam shovel mated with a cocoa bean. Or it’s the [bleep] chocolate factory. Maybe that’s it.” During the first few months of the coronavirus pandemic, it was considered uncivil to suggest such a possibility, and the…
