As if there weren’t enough liberals running for president, CNN senior editor Amanda Katz pulled another name out of the hat. Yesterday evening, Katz tweeted “Realistically, Bette Midler could never win the primary, but if she went head to head with Trump in the general he wouldn’t stand a chance.” At least she’s being realistic.
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.
Surprise! No collusion. Shocking, right? If you’re like any of these lefty celebs, you’re going through all the stages of grief, starting with denial.
Welcome back to Hollywood’s little fantasy roundtable about how “heartless” America is and how progressive countries show us “what leadership looks like.”
During President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address, he dedicated a few moments to slamming radical Democratic Governors Andrew Cuomo and Ralph Northam for their blatant endorsement of late term abortion and infanticide, while asserting that “All children, born or unborn, are made in the holy Image of God.” For many Americans, this was one of the best things Trump has ever said, but for some leftist celebrity women, it was about the most disturbing statement they could imagine.
The showbiz left, secure in their swanky California and Manhattan digs, can’t honestly be expected to care much about border security. But, the most strident voices have chosen recently to outright denigrate it, too assured of their inherent goodness and cosmopolitan virtue signaling. Here are some Twitter highlights:
Conservatives note that an avowed anti-Semite like Louis Farrakhan maintains a Twitter account while a gaggle of conservatives no longer do. Think Anthony Cumia, Owen Benjamin, Roger Stone, Sabo, “Gay Patriot” Bruce Carroll, Gavin McInnes and Laura Loomer. Former Republican candidate Jesse Kelly became the most recent example.
Singer-actress Bette Midler can belt things out. Not just her schmaltzy show tunes, but her Greatest Hits: her fiery, unhinged hits on conservatives, Trump, and pretty much any person who is not a member of the show biz left. She’s usually uninformed, always strident and pretty hateful. Here are five hits that, in the past year, have led people (even liberals) to question her sanity, chide her on Twitter, or simply roll their eyes.
Just when it seemed that Bill and Hillary Clinton had finally left the national stage, along comes a play by a liberal producer that examines an “American dynasty in crisis” about a “power couple who have been a prominent part of the American political landscape for the past quarter-century.” Hillary and Clinton will debut on Broadway next spring and will star actors Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow in the title roles while exploring potential behind-the-scenes developments of the 2008 Democratic presidential primary in New Hampshire.
The wealthy elite actors who are the face of the #resistance have had a very bad day. After Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court on June 27, wailing and grinding of teeth could be heard from Tinseltown across the Twitterverse. The apocalyptic predictions reached a fever pitch: Kennedy’s retiring meant the end of Roe v. Wade, the end of democracy, and the end of our government, according to Hollywood. Statements like, “This is a disaster,” “We are in MAJOR, MAJOR trouble,” and “SCOTUS is going to be a dumpster fire,” echoed throughout.
Hollywood liberal Bette Midler has said a lot of dumb things in the past. But her latest tweet may have taken the cake. Blaming the 1968 assassination of Bobby Kennedy on the lack of gun control.
Celebrities have spent the past 16 months tarring President Donald Trump with every imaginable crime. Two female comics took their Trump hate to a new level this week. The historic opening of the first U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, fulfilling a promise made by President Trump, caused celebrities to reflexively smite Trump’s foreign policy.
