Nothing can win over the massive section of the country the Democrats have lost -- which, as the 2016 electoral map shows, is basically every state not on the west and northeast coasts -- like yet another obnoxious video (below) featuring out of touch Hollywood millionaires bemoaning the perfectly legal, democratic election of Donald Trump. W Magazine, which you probably didn't know existed until today, convinced a bunch of Hollywood A-Listers to protest Trump by singing "I Will Survive," which W declares is "just the antidote for a still-grieving Hollywood."
W explains why it chose the famous 1979 Gloria Gaynor hit by providing a little context for what it describes as "an anthem of female empowerment and of gay pride":
"I Will Survive" is exuberant, a little overwrought: "At first, I was afraid; I was petrified," Gaynor emotes. "Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side." The track breaks out into a jubilant, thumping beat as the singer cries out, "Did you think I'd lay down and die? Oh, no, not I, I will survive."
W then goes all in on the Trump-bashing, declaring that "I Will Survive" is of course now the perfect defiant response to the election of The Enemy of All That's Good and Wholesome, The Donald, over whom, W (correctly) explains, Hollywood is "grieving":
And while the song has long been interpreted through a socially conscious lens, it's the kind of anthem we need now more than ever with the inauguration bearing down on us. With an impending Donald Trump presidency, I will survive.
To that end, Oscar frontrunners (many of them recent Golden Globe honorees) like Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Chris Pine, and Taraji P. Henson lend their vocal chops to a reimagining of the 1979 classic. Their dramatic interpretation of "I Will Survive," part of W's Best Performances portfolio, is just the antidote for a still-grieving Hollywood, many members of which were outspoken Hillary Clinton supporters over the past year — and a few of whom have found themselves on the unfriendly end of Donald Trump's Twitter account.
