Many, many celebrities tweeted about President-Elect Donald Trump on “the morning after.” It was eerily reminiscent of the election of 2000, in that the Democrat won the popular vote but lost the electoral college, and that it felt like the whole world gasped at the choice America had made. Obviously, most celebrities are Democrats. That’s just the way it shakes out. So when they started tweeting about the election results, more than few of them pissed people off. Oddly, one of the big headlines was… Taran Killam, the former Saturday Night Live guy and actor. He tweeted this when it was clear that Trump swept through the deep South, the mid-West and the Rust Belt.

Rural = so stupid.

Rude? Absolutely. There were rural people who voted for Democrats, just as there are city people voting for Republicans. His crime was painting rural voters with too broad a brush. So, Taran got yelled at on Twitter, and he had to offer up one insincere apology and one sincere apology.

Sorry, sorry, sorry. Certainly a flippant comment made in jest. Allow me to be sincerely clear. Vote 4 Trump = I think you’re stupid.

In the light of day, I’m embarrassed for making thoughtless and mean statements. I was wrong. I’m sorry.

I actually chuckled at “Allow me to be sincerely clear. Vote 4 Trump = I think you’re stupid.” He shouldn’t have to apologize for that. Do I have to apologize for thinking the same thing? Like, all of you Trump voters in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida and North Carolina: I think you’re stupid. Trump thinks you’re stupid too. You got pulled in by the dumbest con man in America and even he can’t believe you fell for it. And those voters are too stupid to realize that they’ll be feeling the brunt of all of the Trump administration’s bad policies. Also stupid? The thousands of motherf–kers who voted for “Harambe & Hennessy.”
