The hate the Hollywood Left has for the GOP was palpable this past month as they attacked conservatives for being a bunch of “lying, cheating” bullies who can only win elections by cheating.
Liberal celebs joined their buddies in the news media, accusing Republicans of being a bunch of racists who were “suppressing the vote.”
When they weren’t slandering Republicans, they were offering toasts to President Joe Biden on Twitter. Film director Rob Reiner cheered “Thank God we have a real President. It makes you cry.” Actor John Leguizamo gushed that he’s “got a man crush” for Biden.
The following are the most ridiculous outbursts from the Hollywood Left over the last month:
Those “Lying, Cheating” Republicans!
“The Republican party cannot win without lying, cheating or suppressing the vote, and they know it....They have nothing to offer Americans. It is a bankrupt party….They’re against everything that would help Americans, and Americans are catching on, and that’s why they have to suppress the vote.”
— Co-host Joy Behar on ABC’s The View, March 4.
Republicans = “Bullies”
“I’m going to keep it plain. The Republican Party, the Republicans are bullies, and they’re bullying those who are disenfranchised, who are already having a tough time voicing their — their power and their, you know, vote. And what I wanted to do was lend energy to this movement.”

Seth Meyers Rants Against Republicans and the Constitution
“Our democracy as currently constituted is simply not a level playing field. In fact, it’s arguably never been a level playing field, it’s heavily tilted toward a minority of voters that are predominately white and rural, thanks in large part to anti-majoritarian institutions like the Electoral College and the Senate. Just consider that right now the Senate is evenly split 50-50 and yet the 50 Senate Democrats represent nearly 42 million more Americans than the 50 Senate Republicans….[Sen. Raphael] Warnock delivered an impassioned speech in favor of sweeping voting reforms, and he noted that the GOP assault on voting rights is the most ferocious attack on democracy since the era of Jim Crow….He’s right….Republicans tried to steal the last election through the courts. That didn’t work, so now they’re trying to steal the next election through voter suppression. Nuking or changing the filibuster to stop them is a moral necessity.”

They’d Never Gush Over Kayleigh McEnany Like This

The West Wing actress Allison Janney: “I am incredibly flattered that you would put us side-by-side like that. I think she is — she is the real life CJ Cregg, she’s the real hero. I so admire her, it’s so lovely to see someone in that office, you know, as the press secretary, you know, being friendly to the press, being so smart and capable. And I’m just, I just am in love with her.”

Fawning Over Fonda’s Activism
Host Stephen Colbert: “One of the things I admire about you, is that you don’t just talk the talk, you walk the walk. You have been working for social justice your entire career. What does this moment in time right now mean to you as someone who has worked so hard to change the world? Because so many things are changing right now.”
Actress Jane Fonda: “I’m extremely hopeful. The last four years have been painful for a lot of people and very, very disturbing. But a lot of people also for the first time realized the extent of which white supremacy is still alive in this country, the extent of which police violence is harming black people, and there’s you know, tens of millions of Americans now who are aware of the urgency of the climate crisis and all of these things are connected and people understand that.”

CNN and MSNBC Don’t Perpetuate “Lethal” “Dangerous” Lies Like Fox News
“I would say that there is something lethal that’s wrong with Fox News….They lie and they perpetuate lies, dangerous lies….I recognize that the enemies of Fox News: CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, NBC News, you. I recognize that there might be a liberal tone to it, but they don’t lie, they don’t make things up.”
