Chuck Woolery, the famous TV game show host, has missed the mark yet again. In a recent video, some celebrities have appealed to Congress to stop Trump while they can. The video was not meant to be a plea to overturn the election but rather just forcing Congress to realize that they can limit the danger that Trump could possibly inflict.
They are not the only ones wanting a call to action. All over the United States, people are calling their state representatives and forcing them to hear their concerns. These celebrity videos are working, but Chuck took it literally.
"Well they still don't believe in the electoral college because they don't understand it," Woolery states. The history lesson he wants us to learn is that it is the most fair way for our government.
He talks about the celebrities and calls them delusional, but he is the one who is a bit delusional. The 'legendary television host' calls the actors out of touch. But he's also in Hollywood, so why isn't he falling in that same category?
The electoral college is an outdated system. We are told that we live in a democracy, but, as Woolery points out, that isn't necessarily true. Our Popular Vote doesn't directly lead to a presidency; we've seen that with this election.
But, no matter what the outcome of this election, one side was going to be upset, and the other was going to be happy about it. That is what people are forgetting. I'm sure Chuck would be singing a different tune had the election gone to Hillary Clinton.
We will never know now how everyone would have reacted differently, but there is one thing we can learn from this: celebrities commenting on the political stance of other celebrities kind of defeats the purpose.
