Editor's Note: This piece was coauthored by Tim Graham.

The election has passed, and the American people gave the spoiled celebrities of Hollywood the heave-ho. Despite all of their earnest YouTube lectures and pro-Hillary Clinton concerts and campaign appearances, the next president is Donald Trump.

Little did they realize that John Q. Public is done with these multi-multimillionaires positing themselves as champions of the working class, or even more remarkable, the downtrodden.

Get out the popcorn for their wailing and gnashing of teeth on the internet. On election night they went certifiably bonkers. Their horror is unfashionable.

"Nashville" actress Connie Britton spoke for many liberals, seeing imminent persecution of all minorities: "Dear Muslim, Mexican, immigrant, refugee, handicapped, black, gay, female human beings, & also dear Earth...you are not forgotten. Promise."

Former child star Alyssa Milano asked: "Is it possible that this country is more sexist than racist? May God help us all."

For disgusting reactions, there is comedian Jena Friedman, who wailed on Stephen Colbert's Showtime special, "It feels like an asteroid has just smacked into our democracy. ... It is so scary and sad and heartbreaking. And I just wish I could be funny. Get your abortions now."

Why is democracy damaged when Democrats don't win? Did Trump cheat? No, it's that the wrong voters won.

Or consider the scabrous sex columnist/MTV personality Dan Savage. "Colorado approves assisted suicide," he tweeted. "That's going to come in handy."

Actor John Cusack is a reliable source of spittle: "The fascism is real -what U see is what U get--will be no comforting illusions left to hide in ...look at it with clear steely eyes."

So is Alec Baldwin, whose acidulous "Saturday Night Live" Trump impression apparently failed to persuade people: "The billionaire Republican businessman is close to winning the race and world markets are crashing. He's all yours, America. He's all yours."

You can taste the smugness in that one.

Former "Saturday Night Live" castmember Taran Killam exemplified the entertainment elites on Twitter: "Rural = so stupid."

Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in the movies, might want to consider moving to another country. "This is an embarrassing night for America. We've let a hatemonger lead our great nation. We've let a bully set our course. I'm devastated."

Director Judd Apatow yelled at no Trump voter in particular: "You just elected the swamp! You gave the swamp total control. You are a fool. You didn't do the math. Putin celebrates your ignorance."

"West Wing" creator Aaron Sorkin was inconsolable: "Angry young white men who think rap music and Cinco de Mayo are a threat to their way of life (or are the reason for their way of life) have been given cause to celebrate. ... Hate was given hope."

"Scandal" actor Joshua Malina complained: "Somewhere tonight there's a little, racist, narcissistic, woman-hating, Jew-baiting kid who now knows that he can grow up to be President."

Actor/polemicist Dax Shepard: "Dear all my friends, I was wrong. It wasn't a landslide for Hillary." He really had his finger on America's pulse, or so he thought. Or there's Lindsay Lohan, who tweeted "Retweet if you want a recount."

Retweet if you think Lohan makes sense -- ever.

Comedian Patton Oswalt was trying to improve morale with this confusing lesson: "We survived 8 years of Bush. We can survive 2 1/2 years of Trump." Hmm. The Parliament's having a no-confidence vote in 2019?

The Hollywood left demand everyone watch them, adore them and, when necessary, obey them. It's great fun to see the results of our civil disobedience.
