Of all the far-left, wacky statements made at Saturday’s Women’s March, actress Ashley Judd may take the top honor (or DisHonor) for an R-rated tangent against “Electoral College-sanctioned hate speech” by President Trump and his team of “Nazis” capturing “little girls like Pokemon” and Ivanka Trump as his “favorite sex symbol.”
When we hear celebrities speaking about politics, it usually includes a lot of Republican-bashing, so when we hear an actress speak about supporting whoever is president, it's news.Actress Nicole Kidman tries to avoid talking politics, but during a recent interview with BBC News, she suggested people rally behind Trump as America’s president elect. Kidman describes herself more issue based rather pledging to one certain political party.
The ad that takes the celebrity cake appeared In the January 11 edition of The Washington Post. Page A-5 carried a full-page advertisement. The top half had large capital letters, saying "No! In the name of humanity, we refuse to accept a fascist America!"
"The presidency of Donald Trump is illegitimate," reads the ad copy in bold letters. "By any definition, Donald Trump is a fascist. He has put together a regime who will carry out this program and worse." It even dispenses with the actual voters. "No election, whether fair or fraudulent, should legitimize this."
During the Golden Globes on NBC, a slew of award winners used their acceptance speeches as opportunities to publicize their views while host Jimmy Fallon from The Tonight Show mainly kept the politics to a minimum. But, none of the pieces of drivel from attendees could compare to the incredibly pompous and elitist six-minute rant emanating actress Meryl Streep.
In a phone interview this past Monday on MSNBC’s Hardball, legendary actress, singer, and huge liberal Barbara Streisand decided to use her appearance to gush about fellow actress Meryl Streep’s criticism of President-elect Donald Trump at Sunday’s Golden Globes awards ceremony (plus lob a few insults at Trump herself).
As if the media hasn’t fawned over President Obama’s “legacy” enough, NBC did so again Sunday night, promoting an over-the-top farewell video from the White House. In the video, celebrities and activists gush over their “favorite Obama moment” in the past 8 years. The answers ranged from the trite to the controversial, from climate change to Michelle’s fashion, from Obamacare to healthy school lunches.
After Meryl Streep’s scathing speech condemning President-elect Donald Trump Sunday night, liberals came out in full force to defend the actress and left-wing activist’s “brave” move preaching to the choir. On ABC’s The View Monday morning, actress and host Whoopi Goldberg unsurprisingly came to Streep’s defense as well. While doing so, Goldberg made some absurd claims about which type of politics run Hollywood.
In my previous installment chronicling 2016's most outrageous instances of liberal bias in scripted primetime television, I talked about how some entertainment programming from the broadcast networks often featured some of the most in-your-face political lectures Hollywood puts out.
Actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said “Hello” to hypocrisy and “Hasta la vista, baby” to climate purity. The New Celebrity Apprentice started with Schwarzenegger looking suave and putting on sunglasses in a giant, gas-guzzling hummer. What it didn’t explain was the glaring hypocrisy of a fossil fuel alarmist like Schwarzenegger driving the king of all gas hogs.
Monday, musician Bruce Springsteen expressed his paranoia over the future of an America under Donald Trump on liberal comedian Marc Maron’s podcast. The longtime liberal told Maron that he feared America would become “unrecognizable” because of a rise in hate crimes and other “un-American” activities.
On the surface, “Passengers” looks like sci-fi catnip. Two attractive stars play passengers on a long-distance space flight. Their cryo-pods open prematurely, forcing them to fix the faulty beds or live out their lives in space. Alone. The only thing left for them to do is fall in love. That delivers both a sci-fi punch and romantic potential. And then there’s Lawrence’s open letter. The Oscar winner sent it out after Donald Trump’s shocking electoral victory last month. To be fair, since every other celebrity chimed in on the election perhaps the “Passengers” star felt some sort of obligation.
NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2016. Today, we finish the series with some of the most outlandish celebrity quotes of 2016, mostly of the Hollywood elite shaking their pom-poms for Hillary, hyperventilating over the idea that Trump might actually be elected, and crying “racism” or “sexism” when things don’t go their way.
