Joss Whedon Says He’s “Broken” in Wake of Trump Victories
I’m kind of on a semi-vacation until February 19th, as my fiancee is here in the United States visiting me (which you saw if you watched our All-Star stream last night). But that’s not going to completely stop me from weighing in, especially when I see something this funny.
In the wake of President’s Trump victories, Joss Whedon has finally realized how impotent him and his celebrity cohort really are. As it turns out, most people don’t care what Hollywood multimillionaires have to say about politics, unless of course it concerns laughing at their self-importance. This has hit Mr. Whedon like a ton of bricks. I guess that Buffy the Vampire Slayer political capital doesn’t go quite as far as it used to (hint: it never went very far in the first place).
I think I'm broken
I never ran smooth but I think I'm really broken, I'm sorry, I was funny for a while, good times, please keep fighting

I, for one, welcome more celebrity blowhards coming to this realization. Sad, broken, and pathetic…just how I like to see most of them in the first place.
