As the saying goes, birds of a feather … flip the bird to America together. Like U.S. women’s World Cup champion, feminist activist and angry lesbian Megan Rapinoe dedicating her Glamour “Women of the Year Award” to disgraced, race-baiting former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
If you want a concise distillation of how serious the left’s impeachment attempts are on this first official day of hearings, look at the Drag Queen journalists on the ground at Capitol Hill. Just try to tell yourself — without wincing — that this is a “sad” and oh-so-serious day for democracy, as Nancy Pelosi puts it.
After Barbie maker Mattel introduced its “gender-neutral Barbie” abominations in September, some lefties have voiced their disapproval, saying the new toy line is too “playful” and not woke enough. Truly, a time is coming when Play-Dough will be the only acceptable toy on the market.
MSNBC host Joy Reid certainly doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to her anger for President Trump, though she certainly outdid herself in the TDS department this weekend by inviting eternally-Trump-triggered actor Robert De Niro on to her show to do what he does best: talk trash about the current president.
Legendary British actor Patrick Stewart had a bit of a Benedict Arnold moment the other day during French Comic-Con, telling the French audience that he’s “embarrassed” his countrymen voted for Brexit and that he’d much rather be in the EU with them. And here we thought an Englishmen would rather be drawn and quartered than side with the French.
Congratulations to GLAAD. A group that claims to speak for 4% of the population has already reached its 2020 goal of bullying Hollywood into over-representing gays on TV. In fact, according to the organization’s “Where We Are On TV” report, gay characters are at an “all-time high.” The group boasts “10 percent LGBTQ inclusion among broadcast series regular characters on primetime scripted series,” with all LGBT series regulars comprising 10.2% of network characters.
Because there can be no respite from lefty’s media’s Trump-impeachment narrative, late night host Stephen Colbert got British actors Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren to do a dramatic reading of Trump’s phone call with Ukranian president Zelensky. Gag.
One day, Hillary Clinton may break the glass ceiling and become the first woman to fail in three attempts at becoming president. Until then, America will have to make do with the pointers she gave to Dems trying to beat Trump in 2020 during a late night appearance with James Corden.
If there’s one thing Kanye West shouldn’t be worried about, it’s the elitist music critics who claim his most recent album is a bust. The hip hop artist and fashion-designer has just topped the official Billboard Music “Artist 100” Chart for the second time thanks to the influence of his recently-released Jesus Is King hip hop/Gospel album.
In this age of liberal insanity it seems nothing is too ridiculous, though we do wonder whether we should pinch ourselves when the suits over at Netflix have actually developed technology that allows exhausted viewers to skip Trump-related material in their programming.
Tough guy rapper 50 Cent is out here thinking his connections to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi make him look like one tough cookie and a certified boss. Hilarious, we know. Still, the “In Da Club” emcee stepped foot on the Democrat leader’s turf to push for more diversity initiatives, and hail his “#1 Lady.
Turning Point USA is expanding its social media game with a politically-savvy Instagram/Snapchat show that skewers the leftism and degeneracy of Hollywood culture.
Remember when the old “Christmas” song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” experienced its own #Metoo reckoning for being what many feminists considered a giant innuendo for sexual assault? Yeah, the world was saved that day. Though for those people who would still like to enjoy that number without upsetting the PC applecart, John Legend has recorded a new feminist version of the song, that yes, emphasizes consent and gives a nod to “reproductive rights.”
Musician John Legend and his model wife, Chrissey Teigen, claim they don’t like Donald Trump. No surprise there. So how come they’re lending their images and words to a Vanity Fair cover story that’s really about Trump? POTUS, as the saying goes, lives rent-free in a lot of liberal heads, but somehow he got this A-list entertainment couple and a big, glossy magazine to do a spread and feature article that is almost entirely a reaction to him. Well done, Mr. President.
Dan Gainor, MRC’s Vice President of Business, TechWatch and Culture, appeared on Fox Business Network's Trish Regan Primetime to discuss the how the media’s bias against Donald Trump is so insane that they will treat terrorists better than the President of the United States.
One would think that Hip Hop/rap artists would be at the forefront of free expression these days. After all, even in a PC world, many of these guys get a pass to say whatever they want, and people respect it. One rapper named YG, however, made a mockery of free expression and “fighting the power” by bowing to the lefty status quo this past Saturday. The rapper publicly berated a young fan for refusing to sing the lyrics to his song “Fuck Donald Trump.”
Sunday night’s World Series game between the Washington Nationals and The Houston Astros was another loss for the DC team, but a great victory for the solidarity between DC swamp creatures and Hollywood lefties. As President Donald Trump’s attendance was announced at Nats Park, the home audience responded with cascading jeers & boos and their friends in entertainment media salivated as if that was the only result they were looking for out of the whole evening.
The China/NBA debacle rolls on, this time involving a verbal spat between Vice President Mike Pence and NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley. The “Round Mound of Rebound” is touchy over criticism that his former league won’t risk money to call out the human rights abuses of the Chinese communist government, becoming instead the “Round Mound of ‘Shut the Hell Up.’”
Bette Midler is a loud-mouth lefty and cringeworthy showtunes maven. She also approves of violence (directed against people who disagree with her), like the the 2018 assault of Senator Rand Paul (R-KY).
Following in the footsteps of cowardly NBA hypocrites who blast Trump/conservatives but never China with its large number of human rights abuses, Disney CEO Bob Iger has decided to keep his mouth shut about the communist state because not doing so would pose a threat to his Mickey Mouse cash.
