In an unintended consequence of Senator Elizabeth Warren’s first steps toward becoming the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential candidate, an article at the Huffington Post demonstrated the pitfalls that the Massachusetts official has run into after declaring she is only a tiny bit Native American. After Jennifer Bendery, the liberal website’s senior politics reporter, claimed that the mainstream media is “blowing Its coverage” of Warren’s DNA test, the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA) accused HuffPost of producing “a shallow analysis to a complicated, emotionally charged topic.”
Huffington Post performed an excellent service the other day by documenting the tweets of liberals watching Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. Many of the tweets were funny. Some appeared earnest. Each illustrated the cultural gulf between the America of 1964 and today.
On Monday, Melania Trump unveiled her theme for this year’s White House Christmas decorations and, right on cue, celebrities and the media have started attacking her for it. The woman can’t get a break as last year her holiday style choices were described as being from “hell,” and now as something out of a “horror movie.”
Taylor Swift is undeniably talented, but she seems to have been struggling with identity for the better part of her career. Her days of strumming tunes about lost high school love into the hearts of country audiences are very long gone, and since the early 2010’s she has been trying to reinvent herself as a pop princess of the same strain as Katy Perry and Ke$ha. Simply put, Swift is a revolving door for labels.
Some speculate that 007 might get an ethnic makeover.
Rapper Snoop Dogg likes to “drop” expletives at President Donald Trump “like they’re hot.” Snoop Dogg did that again on Nov. 8, according to the Huffington Post, after promising his more than 28 million Instagram followers he would “do some gangsta s***” at the White House if enough of them responded favorably.
Neil Young once sang, “It’s better to burn out than to fade away.” Happily, he didn’t burn out, but it would be nice if he’d get on with the fading away. It would save us the embarrassment of watching him try to be relevant. Ed Mazza of Huffington Post reported on Nov. 1 that the folk rock icon knocked some of the rust off his old protest song “Ohio” in a new concert video and aimed it at the NRA.
Had enough celebrity political opinion? Not if the celebrities themselves have anything to say about (and oh, they do …). With just a week to go until the Midterms, several of them are actually insisting on bothering people on their doorsteps.
The Huffington Post is starstruck by LeBron James and his support of Beto O'Rourke, the Texas Democrat running against Sen. Ted Cruz for the U.S. Senate. Writer David Barden said James' political activism, including his wearing a "Beto for Senate" cap in San Antonio, is a "slam dunk."
With his new moonlighting in political cartooning, Jim Carrey has donned the perpetually angry, sullen mask of the celebrity leftist horde. Previously, he has used his crude marker drawings to condemn conservatives such as Lindsey Graham and Rudi Giuliani, but his most frequent target by far has been President Trump.
Rumor has it Amy Schumer is a comedic actress, but there’s very little evidence of it. Mostly she seems to care about politics and whining about being a woman (which essentially is her politics). In fact, she cares about politics so much she found a way to politicize the birth of her first child.
Matthew 7:7 in the Bible is a well-known adage: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” Humane, right?
