CRY BABIES Liberal celebrities and pundits lament Youngkin victory!
Glenn Youngkin won Virginia’s gubernatorial race, but some celebrities aren’t having it.
Liberal celebrities and media pundits voiced their contempt for the governor-elect in the lead-up and aftermath of the election. Youngkin, a Republican, defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe on Tuesday 50.7% to 48.6%.
Cher, Rosie O’Donnell, Stephen Colbert, Chelsea Handler, and other mediaites didn’t hold back in their criticism of Youngkin.
“Held my tongue long enough, but fk it!! Do Dems need a house to fall on there sisters before they see what’s coming!? Guess ‘American terrorists’ yelling, ‘Hang Pence, Kill Pelosi,’ isn’t enough [sic],” Cher wrote. “Total power. It’s ‘whites’-only club, and BLM, LGBT, Jews, Asians, minorities, are in [German flag emoji]-style peril [sic].”

Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show, had a “feeling that the grey-haired, middle-aged, rich, white guy has a pretty good shot.”
I’m no prophet, but in the Virginia election, I have a feeling that the grey-haired, middle-aged, rich, white guy has a pretty good shot.

Youngkin got the trump base and then convinced normal people he wasn’t trumpy. He was careful not to have trump come and say crazy stuff. He got trumpism to scale by keeping it at an arms length. Ultimately he’s a trumpist but he made people in Virginia think he wasn’t as nuts.

.@NicolleDWallace: Glenn Youngkin laundered former President Trump’s flagrant racism, wrapped it in education, and gave it a lie as a label. https://t.co/0lNaoE5XNH pic.twitter.com/wVlAYBJFqF

Youngkin has shown Republicans that they can launder dog whistles through huge unregulated platforms, driving base turnout—even while distancing from Trump.
Democrats need to better control the narrative—with our own wedge issues and with a positive, forward-thinking message.
