Both before and after the election of Donald Trump as president, celebrities had a field day, whining and complaining like overpaid children, expressing their opinions to the media and acting like people actually care. And why should they? They live in a completely different world than the rest of us. They don’t what it’s like to be common people and actually have politics affect their lives.

Wahlberg, who has been a rapper, a restaurant owner, a producer, a director and actor in films like “Boogie Nights,” “The Departed,” “Three Kings,” and “Lone Survivor,” spoke about the topic of celebrity interference in politics during a luncheon meant to promote his upcoming film and he had some interesting thoughts on the matter.
