Even if President Donald J. Trump told the the nation that he cured cancer and achieved world peace at this year's State of the Union Address, the Hollywood left would rail on about the end of days.
In the latest chapter of what Sean Hannity called the “tale of two Americas,” Trump touted America’s successes during his Feb. 4 address, while the leftists watching spat back as if record unemployment for Hispanics and African Americans, the killing of two terrorist masterminds, and the defense of infants moments before birth were terrible things.
Hollywood was the epicenter of hate and anger towards Trump’s speech. Comedian Sarah Silverman summed up the outrage, tweeting that the president was a “fearmongering pig.”
Singer Cher waxed hysterically with her tweet on the speech, expressing her horror that the president was rude to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:
MISUNDERSTOOD..HE SNUBBED HER.IVE BEEN ALIVE THROUGH 13 PRESIDENTS,& HES THE MOST VENGEFUL ILLITERATE,LIMP, IMITATION OF A MAN EVER.HE USES AS HIS PERSONAL ATM.THE REASON HE DIDNT WANT TO SHAKE NANCY’S HAND IS BECAUSE HER [hands] ARE BIGGER THAN HIS. HE’S ALSO AFRAID OF HER.
HBO talk show host Bill Maher got real petty with Trump’s appeal to African American voters, tweeting, “Republicans sure do love anecdotal help for black folks.”
Westworld actor Jeffrey Wright tweeted similarly, claiming, “Using black folks as #SOTU weapons to target poor folks coming north to this country for a better shot. Racist, race-baiting, xenophobic bullshit to the applause & back slaps of lawmakers' white hands. Garbage.” Even with record job numbers for the black community and evidence that race relations are better under this president, these are the responses.
Wright also tweeted, “Speech was disgusting. Like the man.” And they wonder why we don’t take Hollywood seriously?
Abortion-lover and Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead objected to the pro-law enforcement, pro-strong border section of the speech, tweeting, “Fuck ICE #SOTU.” She also referred to the speech as “The State Of The Gaslight #SOTU.”
The Twitter account for Comedy Central’s Full Frontal With Samantha Bee tweeted, “Women in Congress are wearing white to celebrate the 19th amendment while the men are white to celebrate being Republicans. #SOTU.”
And it wouldn’t be a Hollywood hate party without sworn Trump enemy Rosie O'Donnell. The washed-up comedian tweeted, “history will record the standing clapping gop - as cult members #trumpLIES.”
These folks are so adamant in refusing to give credit to Trump that they’re at war with reality. Sad!
