You know you live in a healthy society when its “elite” journalists demand even more dead bodies than those being produced by a pandemic.
Legendary Alien and Blade Runner director Ridley Scott seems a bit frustrated with President Donald Trump’s leadership during the coronavirus pandemic. The 82-year-old movie maker questioned the president’s mental health and intelligence on how he’s handled things for the past two months, calling him a “nutcase.”
Rapper-turned-Gospel music producer Kanye West refuses to let the media have the final word on his support for President Donald Trump. The 42-year-old musician and clothing designer has generated his fair share of controversy in the last year, primarily for his support of the current president (someone many in Hollywood wouldn’t get caught dead praising,) and for turning his artistic ambitions to the message of Jesus Christ.
Comedian Kathy Griffin’s health has taken an unexpected turn for the worse it seems, as she recently tweeted photos of herself in aa "covid19 isolation ward" suffering from what she believes to be coronavirus symptoms. The infamous Trump-bashing entertainer also took the opportunity to criticize the Trump administration’s pandemic responses.
Hollywood loves using the Coronavirus pandemic as an opportunity to bash the Trump administration's priorities. But what about Hollywood’s priorities? Is it a good time to drag out a bunch of Asian and Asian American actors to continue a petty squabble about the President’s usage of the phrase “Chinese virus,” something he has even dropped in the past week?
Fran Drescher, everyone’s favorite sitcom babysitter has been touting anti-capitalist rhetoric in recent days. It appears her time working for the wealthy NYC Sheffield family throughout the 90s clued her into the evils of high society.
For Hollywood, Trump’s talk of opening American businesses back up soon so that quarantine doesn’t completely derail the lives of millions amounts to him condemning Americans to death. Celebrities like Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) should be able to understand that a nine-month quarantine would harm the U.S. more than coronavirus ever could, but acknowledging that would make it harder to insinuate that the president’s a danger to “your loved ones.”
While the entertainment world gnashed its collective teeth and tried hard to somehow make the pandemic Trump’s fault, one actress Kirstie Alley braved the ire of her celebrity colleagues by thanking the president for “taking charge and leading” Americans.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter just stepped in it, putting out a very vengeful and salacious tweet about how the neighbor who assaulted Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) at his own home “was right.” Not that her famous last name was respected in conservative circles, but Christine sure invited universal condemnation of the Pelosi family name with her disgusting partisan smear of the GOP lawmaker.
Looks like Cher would like to turn back time on her recent anti-Trump tweets. The pop-music legend and hyperbolic Twitter lefty realized that her latest tweet calling the president a “murderer” over his coronavirus response was maybe a bit too far. Wow. A celebrity with a conscience when it comes to talking Trump? Maybe the world is really ending.
The Hollywood left just can’t handle when its news media comrades get rebuked by the president during a press conference. Celebrities like John Cusack and Josh Gad reacted to Trump’s takedown of NBC’s Peter Alexander and his provocative questions like they were vampires who had been hit with holy water.
“Imagine there’s no Donald Trump.” Those are the lyrics actor and Bernie Bro Mark Ruffalo would probably love to see in an amended version of “Imagine,” John Lennon’s song about a communist utopia.The actor’s hatred for Trump superseded his desire for unity and calm in the wake of coronavirus and he took to Twitter to call the president's pandemic policies “racist.”
You know, the coronavirus “social distancing” measures don’t have to be all bad. There are silver linings to some of this limbo, one being that the LGBTQ community has to slow down its offenses against our sensibilities.
It was only a matter of time before the general public had to suffer through this era’s version of the song “We Are the World.”
The pressure of being quarantined in her luxury pad with her husband, singer John Legend, must have been too much for model Christine Teigen, because she started lashing out viciously on social media against First Lady Melania Trump.
Stephen Colbert decided to continue producing a stripped down form of his late night comedy show in the midst of the coronavirus quarantine, though it wasn’t just the production quality that appeared to be suffering, but the material itself. Maybe that’s just because we’re tired of lame jokes from the bottom of the far left political barrel.
Say what you want about President Trump, but he has an almost magical ability to send lefties into a sputtering rage void of all reasoning and common sense. One of Trump’s recent coronavirus briefings sure got Westworld star Jeffrey Wright to look like a spit-flecked dunce.
Marvel’s most recent comic book isn’t even about superheros this time around. It’s progressive propaganda with a crime-fighting veneer. That’s it. Even with two years of Marvel discussing token gay characters, or its parent company Disney trying to weave in a subtle lesbian kiss here or there, we were still surprised to learn that the superhero company decided that a “non binary” character named “Snowflake."
Oh Hollywood. To its denizens, everything that conservatives or Donald Trump mutter before the press is a cultish conspiracy theory, but celebs can push whatever anit-semitic fever dream BS they want and expect us to hear them out. That’s what actress Rosanna Arquette hoped for on Tuesday with her crazy anti-Israel tweet.
High Fidelity star Zoey Kravitz seems to have a pretty interesting sense of humor regarding the Coronavirus pandemic. The actress posted a joke photo of the virus to her Instagram account which had been altered to appear like it was made of red “MAGA” caps.
