Celebrity political endorsements mean absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things: If Beyonce’s 11th-hour endorsement of Beto O’Rourke couldn’t nab him the senate race in 2018, then how powerful can any of the plebian ones be, really? But with these public proclamations, stars do manage to at least remind their less tuned in fans that an election is happening, and if that gets some people to consider their candidate of choice, then hey, mission partially accomplished.

It’s a presidential election year, which means celebrities are coming out of the woodwork to remind us that they are politically engaged every four years. Since most celebs live in California, Super Tuesday was a particularly visible day for the celebrities to show off their support, even if they already publically endorsed their candidate of choice weeks ago. While Sanders has enjoyed the lion’s share of celebrity endorsements, some other candidates have had a few of their own:

In the Bernie Sanders corner, we have…

Don Bradshaw aka Mister D aka Travis Trickle aka The Gay Pundit (I’m Hot)

@BernieSanders is Hot! I’m Hot! Susan Sarandon’s Hot. Mark Ruffalo Really Hot! Milla Jovovich is Hot! Jack Nicholson is Icon Hot! Chloë Sevigny is Hot! Sarah Silverman is Hot! Lady Bunny is Hot! Miley Cyrus is Hot! Cardi B is Hot! Ariana Grande is Hot! Lizzo is Hot! Neil Young is Hot! Cris V is Hot! Being For Bernie Sanders is Hot!

In other words: *

If You Ain’t For Bernie, You Ain’t Hot!, And That Ain’t Cool! Kiss My Ass!


*The only non-Sanders supporter that is HOT is Bette Midler. She is the only exception. The rest of you are trolls.

As for Michael Bloomberg…

It seems as if the only celeb really stanning Bloomberg’s on Super Tuesday was Bette Midler, who… remembers 9/11. (Mister D: I could reel off a lot of fans that would’ve voted for him just because Bette did…easily)
