Celebrities Trash Ohio Voters After Democrat Loss: ‘This Is an Embarrassment’

BillyGriffin1

Hollywood-backed Democratic candidates didn’t fare as well as politically engaged celebrities had hoped in Tuesday’s elections, which sparked Russian meddling conspiracy theorizing and celebs bashing Green Party voters in Ohio.

The contest between Republican Troy Balderson and Democrat Danny O’Connor in Ohio’s 12th congressional district garnered perhaps the most celebrity attention in the weeks and days leading up to the election.

Actresses Chelsea Handler and Alyssa Milano and Grammy-winner John legend publicly endorsed the 30-year-old O’Connor.

But, at the time of this reporting, Balderson is in the lead. Which brings us to the stars who’ve taken to social media to blame “Russian meddling” and voters who cast a ballot for the Green Party candidate.

“You know what sucks? Because of our unwillingness to pass policy that protects our election integrity, I immediately think the Green Party votes tonight are Russian meddling,” Milano fumed. “Why else would anyone cast a protest vote in Ohio when there’s so much at stake?”

Actor Bill Eichner had this message for Ohio voters, “Dear Green Party: Can you PLEASE wait to make your symbolic votes at a time when our government isn’t being overrun by white supremacists??? Come @ me I don’t care.”

Actress Patricia Arquette demanded that O’Connor demand an “audit of voting machines.”

@PattyArquette

@dannyoconnor1 Dude demand a recount if you can and an outside analysis and audit of voting machines. Do it.

Will & Grace star Debra Messing called Green party voters “an embarrassment.”

So the Green Party candidate in #OH12 is an immigrant from a distant planet, as he explains here in this video and also on Facebook.

We can vote for whoever we want in the US.

That doesn’t mean we should, though. https://twitter.com/AynRandPaulRyan/status/1027053898857504775

Kathy Griffin also shamed Green party voters in Ohio.

Green Party voters..no one is saying you can’t vote for your candidates….but don’t tell me you care about the environment if you know your vote will make the difference between a Dem winning over a Rep and you still choose to vote for your candidate who has NO chance of winning

The night wasn’t a total loss for Democrats, as their socialist star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saw a couple of candidates she endorsed when their primary races.
President Donald Trump appeared to be the night’s biggest winner. Five candidates President Trump endorsed won their respective races.
