At this point, it’s nearly impossible to avoid the presidential debates and the massive amounts of stress that they bring. And like, OK, we should technically be paying attention to what happens to the world around us, and our fave celebs have a lot to say about last night’s presidential debate. We all know that celebrities have a lot of influence (whether they should or not) on how aware we are on ~the issues~ so it’s always a good feeling to see them encouraging dialogue and reminding us that we HAVE to pay attention to WTF is happening in politics, as dismal as it seems.
Here’s what some of our faves had to say:
Katy Perry on how we were all feeling.
Queen Leslie Jones doing her own fact-checking, saying,
J.K. Rowling on why words are never just words, saying,
Anna Kendrick getting SO REAL about this “locker room talk” nonsense.
Mark Ruffalo on the environment, and also how our insides feel, saying,
Kristen Bell on the integrity of our COUNTRY, saying,
And our fave Julia Louis-Dreyfus on the state of the election.
And, of course, the always flawless Jessie Williams.
Plus Stephen Colbert on the stress of being a fact-checker.
Wiz Khalifa made us totally LOL (like, TG, because we need some humor in this).
Along with Blake Griffin.
TG for these guys. At least if we’re miserable and terrified about all of this political stress, we’re all miserable and terrified together.
