Hollywood Hatred Boils Over After Democrats Suffer Ohio Election Losses
Chelsea Handler, Debra Messing and more pleaded for votes — then other liberals attacked the GOP and Green Party voters
Hollywood is losing its mind over the results of Tuesday’s elections.
With Democrats walking away with no major victories, leftists did what they tend to do in these situations. They jumped on Twitter in anger.
The election that is still getting the most attention was in the 12th Congressional District of Ohio, where Republican Troy Balderson ran against Democrat Danny O’Connor. Celebrities took to social media leading up to the election and tried to encourage people to vote — but then turned to shaming anyone and everyone who disagreed with them once the results started rolling in.
O’Connor earned endorsements from celebrities like Chelsea Handler and John Legend — but that didn’t boost him enough to pull out a definitive victory.

.@JohnLegend wants YOU to call Ohio voters for @DannyOConnor1! Support the Ohio special election on Tuesday no matter where you are, and we’ll be one seat closer to taking back the House. Let’s do this: https://t.co/nBnwF387v8 pic.twitter.com/mgbv5eZTa1

And then came the reactions to the results.
Here are four in particular that stand out.
“Charmed” star and outspoken leftist Alyssa Milano was so mad when it began looking like Balderson would win that she began shaming Green Party voters and equating their actions with “Russian meddling.”
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.
Why else would anyone cast a protest vote in Ohio when there’s so much at stake?#OH12

Comedian Bill Eichner and “Will & Grace” star also targeted Green Party voters through their social media accounts.
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.

Messing also called Green Party voters an “embarrassment” in another tweet.
Controversial comedian Kathy Griffin even set her sights on Green Party voters and had a rather contradictory message for them.
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
— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) August 8, 2018
If she believes they can vote for whichever candidate they want, then why does the rest of her tweet even exist?
It’s actually reached the point at which Democrats are so unwilling to perform self-reflection on their own platforms that they’re jumping to conspiracy theories, anger and accusations of treason when they lose.
This is not why they are losing elections. The American people are sending a message— and clearly, many leftists are simply not listening.
