Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha.

You’ve heard the old adage, that doing the same thing repeatedly but expecting different results is the definition of insanity.

Apparently, celebrities don’t think it applies to them.

As reported by The Hill: “A slew of high-profile stars — including Sally Field, former ‘The View’ co-host Rosie Perez, ‘Westworld’s‘ Jeffrey Wright, Keegan-Michael Key and ‘Boardwalk Empire’ actor Steve Buscemi — are calling on Congress to ‘vigorously oppose’ any of President-elect Donald Trump’s ‘racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, anti-worker, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic, anti-environmental policies.’”

Because this has worked so well in the past.

Anti-Trump celebrities such as Martin Sheen appeared in a public service announcement pleading with electors in the Electoral College to not cast their vote for Mr. Trump. Ironically, Hillary Clinton had more Electoral College defectors than did Mr. Trump.

MTV News last month released a video that offered New Year’s resolutions to “white guys” featuring actors that said Blue Lives Matters “wasn’t a thing,” and put down conservative outlets such as Fox News.

The video went viral for all the wrong reasons. Some Twitter users accused MTV News of casual racism and the targeting of white men.

According to The Hill, the new PSA — which asks supporters to stand up to Mr. Trump by signing a MoveOn.org petition to be sent to members of Congress — was created by the social media campaign Humanity for Progress, formerly known as the pro-Hillary Clinton group, Humanity for Hillary.

Celebrities can sell cars and soda, but one thing this election cycle has proven is that they can’t sell their ideology.

This frustrates them. So rather than accept their limited reach, the PSAs will continue, in the hopes that something changes.

These celebrities have gone insane.
