No celebrity power

Updated 11/11/2016 1:08 PM

One thing good thing we learned from this election is that the American people are too smart to be swayed by celebrity status.

Consider this: The following celebrities stumped for Hillary Clinton: 50 Cent, Amy Shumer, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Chloe, Grace Moretz, Demi Lovato, Ellen DeGeneres, John Legend, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Lena Dunham, Pharrell Williams, Miley Cyrus, Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, not forgetting past president Bill Clinton, Barak and Michelle Obama and Elizabeth Warren.


Americans are also too smart to fall for talking heads. Hopefully the likes of Donna Brazile and CNN have learned a lesson: Americans do not like cheaters.

If Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama can play nice the day after the election, let's the rest of us follow their example.
