Hollywood is in mourning today one day after Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) dropped out of the presidential race.
“I wish I could give you better news but I think you know the truth,” Sanders said as he officially dropped out of the race, according to Breitbart News. “I have concluded that this battle for the Democratic nomination will not be successful and so today I am announcing the suspension of my campaign,” adding, “While this campaign is coming to an end, our movement is not.”
Celebrities immediately went into full meltdown mode, making it known on social media that they were devastated that the socialist senator was dropping out.
“Wow. I’m heartbroken about Bernie. In all this darkness, he made me believe that people, together, could be the light. He continues to be an inspiration. And he’ll never stop fighting for us,” comedian Sarah Silverman tweeted. “Thank you, Bernie. For me, you’re right up there w Mr. Rogers.”

For actress and model Emily Ratajkowski, Sanders dropping out was almost too much for her to bear. “I feel so hopeless and devastated and powerless,” she wrote, adding the hashtags “#BernieIsOurHope” and “BernieDropOut.”

Many stars thanked Sanders for doing some kind of service to our country, although it’s unclear what he actually did. “Thank you, Bernie. You are a hero, and a vital force in our struggle for a better, more equitable America,” George Takei of “Star Trek” fame tweeted, with actress Rosanna Arquette adding, “Gratitude Bernie Sanders for waking many Americans up.”

This once again shows just how out of touch with reality the stars of Hollywood really are. Living secluded in their ritzy Hollywood estates, they have so little of an idea of what real Americans want and need that they were actually throwing their support behind a crazed socialist for president.
Contrary to what Hollywood believes, Sanders dropping out was the best possible thing for our country. We can never afford to let a socialist get anywhere near the White House, no matter what Hollywood nitwits say.
