Donald Trump may be the most hated president in Hollywood since...well...ever. In the last month celebrities from Bill Maher to Cher have wished the worst, most vile things on the current president. The following is just a sampling of the worst outbursts (this past month) from Hollywood:
On Friday’s edition of Real Time, host Bill Maher took shots at Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who gave a press conference earlier in the week declaring that “If we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that.” While many in the media have taken that statement as an invitation for Congress to impeach President Trump, Maher took a page out of Trevor Noah’s playbook and made light of Mueller’s remarks.
On Friday’s edition of Real Time, host Bill Maher devoted part of his closing monologue to trashing Attorney General Bill Barr. While the attack on Barr was probably expected, few could have predicted that the HBO host would use Barr as a pretense to tear into his religion, which Maher referred to as the “cult” of Catholicism.
Just two and a half years after fantasizing about a retroactive abortion for then-Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence, author Fran Lebowitz offered up more outrageous commentary on Friday’s edition of Real Time. This time, Lebowitz shared her desire that the Saudis murder President Trump.
Unofficially, Hollywood seems to have chosen its candidate. And while that may be an an ambitious claim at this stage in the 2020 race, it only reflects the insane amount of support Hollywood bigwigs are showing to Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana. ABC news ran a story on how just starstruck celebs and heavyweight producers are with Buttigieg, claiming he’s everything they’ve ever dreamed of — the “unicorn candidate.”
On Real Time Friday, host Bill Maher closed his satirical segment “New Rules” by urging First Lady Melania Trump to dump the President, arguing that her doing so would enable President Trump to “implode on his own.” Maher also encouraged Rupert Murdoch’s wife, Jerry Hall, to do the same before describing Fox News as an “axis of evil” and comparing the Trump base to “an army of brain-dead zombies.”
Therapists in Hollywood must be raking it in this month, as celebrities from Chelsea Handler to Amy Poehler confessed to having emotional breakdowns and “panic attacks” over Donald Trump. Some of them were just sad as they cried over no collusion in the Russia case. Singer Bette Midler claimed Trump had “caused depression, despair, confusion and death.” Others expressed anger. The following is a just a sample of celebrities losing their mind over Donald Trump in the last month.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal comedian Bill Maher was showing his unpatriotic side as he not only declared that the military budget should be cut in half, but he also griped about the tradition of playing God Bless America at sporting events that began after the 9/11 attacks.
An interview with Bob Costas on Friday’s edition of Real Time started out about sports but not surprisingly, it did not take long for the discussion to turn political. At first, the conversation focused on Colin Kaepernick, with Costas and host Bill Maher speaking favorably about the controversial former quarterback. Eventually, the conversation turned to political correctness; with the majority of the panel taking the view that an obsession with judging historical figures by today’s standards leads to a slippery slope.
During the final portion of his satirical segment “New Rules,” Real Time host Bill Maher tore into Special Counsel Robert Mueller for not recommending an indictment against President Trump and slammed his investigation as “one feckless punt after another.” As Maher rolled out his final “new rule,” a chyron with the phrase “Bob Cost Us” appeared at the bottom of the screen; a play on the names of one of his guests for the evening, former NBC sportscaster Bob Costas.
On Friday's Real Time show, HBO comedian Bill Maher ended his show with a commentary celebrating reports that young Americans have less sex and produce fewer children than past generations. As he argued that humans hurt the environment, he concluded that it would be better for Earth for more people to "not have kids, die and stay dead."
March provided television viewers and streaming platform binge-watchers another heavy dose of Trump hate. At least another 40 separate entertainment programs, on major networks, cable TV, and popular streaming platforms continued their vicious anti-Trump propaganda. What once might have been shocking is all too commonplace for a media in the later stages of Trump Derangement syndrome.
