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.

‘Aquaman’ Jason Momoa Tells Chris Pratt Not To Use Plastic Water Bottles; Pratt Responds With ‘You’re Completely Right.’
Liberal Hollywood actors have a tendency to think more highly of themselves than they ought, and nothing points out this inflated ego than one crusader for a cause scolding a fellow actor for doing something that violates their delicate belief system. Which is precisely what happened when “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa took a swipe at his colleague, megastar Chris Pratt for using a plastic water bottle in a post he put up on social media. Here’s more from Daily Wire: Thankfully, however, Pratt diffused the situation with a gracious response, and Momoa followed that with a follow-up post calling Pratt an “inspiration.” “Bro [I] love [you] but [what the f***] on the water bottle,” Momoa complained in the comment section. “No single use plastic. [C]ome on.” The purpose of Pratt’s post was part of a collaboration with Amazon: “You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with [Amazon] to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020,” the movie star captioned the gym photo.

Kanye West Asked ‘Jesus Is King’ Employees To Abstain From Pre-Marital Sex; Says Porn Is ‘Not Okay’
Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…
