Hollywood elites tried desperately to inspire Americans to vote for Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden this election cycle. Despite a predicted Biden blow out, Tuesday’s narrow results showed their cringe-worthy attempts ultimately fell flat.
It turns out, woke celebrities are not as likable as they think they are. Or, maybe Trump’s base is made up of working class folks, who care more about jobs and sending their kids to school than who Chrissy Teigen or Chelsea Handler says they should vote for.
In an election cycle filled with frenzied appeals to middle American voters, here are the best celebrity fails:
1. Pro-Fracking Lady Gaga Campaigns For Biden In PA
Lady Gaga inexplicably posted a video wearing camo next to a truck and drinking a beer to announce she would be in Pennsylvania with Joe Biden in the last days of his campaign. The bizarre video was widely derided for mocking and stereotyping Trump voters.

It was also quickly seized upon by the Trump campaign, who pointed out what the clueless, celebrity obsessed Biden campaign should have known: That Lady Gaga was a well-known anti-fracking activist and member of a celebrity group whose aim was to shut down the industry. In a scathing press release, the Trump campaign ridiculed Biden for both trying to back track (and lie) about his anti-fracking comments while campaigning with Lady Gaga. “Nothing exposes Joe Biden’s disdain for the forgotten working men and women of Pennsylvania like campaigning with anti-fracking activist Lady Gaga.”
The president, also trolled with a tweet, “Just learned that Sleepy Joe Biden is campaigning in Pennsylvania with Lady Gaga, a proud member of ‘Artists Against Fracking.’ This is more proof that he would ban Fracking and skyrocket your energy prices…”
2. No One Shows At Biden Rally With Bon Jovi
Bon Jovi was another high-profile celebrity who campaigned for Biden in Pennsylvania with former President Barack Obama. The rock legend, flanked by one of the Democratic party’s most popular and historic figure, should have inspired droves of fans. However, the aging boomer duo drew an embarrassingly small crowd. Facebook and Twitter were replete with pictures from the event, laughing at the “12 people and 7 pumpkins,” that turned out to hear from the aging rocker and politician.
More embarrassing still was the fact that big tech “independent fact-checkers” were enlisted to provide cover for the sad event, lest anyone dare to compare it to Donald Trump’s massive rallies. If you needed proof that the Biden campaign was sensitive about the enthusiasm gap between the candidates, censors flagged posts to confirm that there were “230 cars” at the pitiful Bon Jovi event. Compare that to the 97-mile Trump car rally in Arizona that week, organized organically by supporters, not the Trump campaign.
3. Taylor Swift Sings SJW Anthem
Taylor Swift released an obnoxious Biden campaign video titled “Only The Young,” in which she croons, “You go to class, scared wondering where the best hiding spot would be. And the big bad man and his big bad clan, their hands are stained with red. Oh, how quickly, they forget.” The emotionally charged music video features screaming social justice warriors, crying Mexican children, Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett cast as a villain, cops pushing down an old man, protesters dressed as handmaids, and much more.
Up there's the finish line.
Our future is worth our fight.

Ironically, the video could just as easily be used by the Trump campaign: vote against this!
4. SNL Fails to be Funny
In recent years, “Saturday Night Live” has declined into the unfunny genre of “activist comedy.” SNL is supposed to have the best comedy writers in the country, yet their jokes this past election cycle were so blatantly partisan, it rendered them predictable and most importantly, unfunny. There was a time when SNL actually followed the comedy golden rule, that “When comedy isn’t at all dangerous, it’s boring.”
Now, SNL stays as safe as possible, only joking within the bounds of what’s acceptable among America’s woke elites. This means jabbing at Trump and leaving Biden, an easily mockable figure, unscathed after every sketch.
In fact, when it was announced that Jim Carrey would play Joe Biden, Jeff Daniels, Carrey’s “Dumb and Dumber” costar told Stephen Colbert he urged Carrey to “go easy” on Biden. “We need him,” Daniels told Carrey.
5. Chelsea Handler Sells Sex For Biden Votes
Of course, we can never forget Chelsea Handler, who offered her ex-boyfriend “50 Cent” sexual favors if he didn’t vote for Donald Trump. The rapper made headlines when he endorsed President Trump after seeing Joe Biden’s tax plan, and posting to Instagram, “VOTE ForTRUMP.”
Handler’s morally and legally questionable comments got worse when she told “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon that she “had to remind her ex that he was a black person so he can’t vote for Donald Trump.”
The woke white comedian explained it was somehow her duty to set 50 Cent straight on account of his skin color: “He shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook.” It was a fitting comment given Biden echoed the same racist sentiment to black radio host Charlamagne tha God, saying “if you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black.”
6. The Telethon DNC Convention Was A Total Fail
The most cringe-inducing and poorly produced convention in recent history was the celebrity-heavy 2020 Democratic National Convention. Despite all the Hollywood “talent” the DNC enlisted, it was unwatchable and looked like a cheap telethon.
One of the signature DNC celebrity speakers included 18-year-old Billie Eilish. The 18-year-old pop star could not have sounded more bored as she assured America in monotone that President Trump is “destroying our country.” The teen droned on, using as little passion as humanly possible, adding, “We all have to vote like our lives and the world depends on it because they do.”
Meanwhile, the RNC Convention, featuring everyday working Americans was a beautifully produced and imminently must-see evening event, once again proving that average Americans are more interesting than spoiled elitist celebrities waxing on about income inequality.
7. Celebrities Get Naked For Mail-In Votes
Celebs like Sarah Silverman, Mark Ruffalo, Chelsea Handler, Naomi Campbell, Josh Gad, and Chris Rock stripped down in a video to explain how to properly fill out and submit mail-in-ballots, which were widely pushed by Democrats, to avoid “naked” ballots, when your voter card isn’t placed in the right number of envelopes (in certain states). The video was desperate, wince-worthy, and condescending.
This election proved that there is a deep divide between America’s elites and the populist movement of Trump supporters, which was exemplified this week by the widely incorrect pollsters. Even with every single big name star throwing their support behind Biden, regular folks still voted in large numbers for Trump. People are voting based on economics, not “intersectionality” and woke identity politics that reigns supreme in Hollywood.
Under the leadership of Donald Trump, the Republican party has become the party of the working class and Americans who unashamedly love their country. Out of touch celebrities, no matter how much they try, can’t stop the American electorate from voting in their best interest.
