67th Annual Emmy Awards Predictably Uses GOP Candidates for their Comedy Material

September 20th, 2015 11:53 PM

Tonight’s 67th Annual Emmy Awards did not disappoint when it came to insults thrown at GOP Presidential Candidates.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus made Donald Trump the focus of her acceptance award for Lead Actress in Comedy for her show “VEEP.”

“Thank you very much to, of course, the academy. I think it would be appropriate at this moment to -- to quote our political satire, "Veep." "What a great honor it must be for you to honor me tonight."
[ Laughter ] Oh, wait, oh, god, oh, no, no, I'm so sorry. Donald Trump said that. I'm sorry.”

Then, presenters for the Reality-Competition Award could not resist a jab at the GOP Presidential Debates:

“>> There is one category of television that allows us as a society to sit back and enjoy the simple spectacle of "Reality." 
>> A strange reality where people can't seem to say two words without throwing each other "Under the bus." 
>> A reality where a panel of millionaires fight like sharks to be chosen by average middle-class Americans. 
>> And a reality where nobody is there "For the right reasons." 

>> But enough about the Republican National Debate.

Well, I guess when you’re popular, they are going to ride your coattails…

I will leave you with Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ face, which changes from gleeful and happy at the win for Writing for a Comedy Series on her show “VEEP,” to confused and incredulous when one of her winning writers says this:

“America has been so welcoming to a lot of Brits on this show, British writers and directors, editors, musicians. Thank you so much.”
