Real Time host Bill Maher concluded his satirical segment “New Rules” on Friday by advising his audience to “just celebrate Thanksgiving, don’t try to win it.” At first glance, his closing monologue might have seemed like words of wisdom for those who “see politics so differently from people who share your very blood.” But it quickly turned into a rant against “hate”-filled “rubes” and “Bible thumpers,” in other words, conservatives.
With all the lamentations of Trump’s divisiveness, one would think that last night’s closing debate question about “civility” and candidates’ friends from across the aisle would be a nice change of pace, or at worst a hokey diversion. Well not for the Hollywood left. Any show of bipartisan civility stands in the way of the leftist agenda and should be cast aside.
On Thursday, the ladies of The View weighed in on Hollywood’s reaction to liberal comedian Ellen DeGeneres and former President George W. Bush sitting next to each other at a Dallas Cowboys game. While some of the co-hosts acknowledged that they thought it was important to have friends on both sides of the political aisle, co-host Sunny Hostin understood why some liberal celebrities were “put off” by a liberal lesbian having a friendship with a Republican President who dared to support traditional marriage.
In a thought-provoking conclusion to Tuesday’s CBS Evening News, anchor Norah O’Donnell seemed inspired by the friendship between former Republican President George W. Bush and liberal comedian Ellen DeGeneres, and encouraged viewers to seek out people of a different political opinion and befriend them.
If you’re not skipping school for the sake of the climate, you're probably not a conscientous citizen, well at least not in the eyes of the progressives in Hollywood. Celebs were overjoyed at the sight of millions of young people around the world taking to the streets at the word of 15-year-old pied piper Greta Thunberg and her climate change hysteria. People like Ellen DeGeneres and Michael Moore tweeted their support for the next generation who seem hell bent on the elites taking even more freedom away from them.
Entertainment magazine Variety sat down with comedian and daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres recently to talk about her latest Netflix standup routine and hype her suddenly becoming “political” for Democrats. Despite the media, and DeGeneres herself, constantly denying her partisanship, she’s always been a liberal activist, both behind the scenes and on her show.
On Thursday’s edition of Ellen, host Ellen DeGeneres set up her guest, comedian David Letterman, to trash the President. She asked him “if you got a chance to interview President Trump again...what question would you ask him?” Not surprisingly, Letterman took the bait and indulged the anti-Trump DeGeneres and her anti-Trump audience.
On Wednesday, Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Cory Booker was treated to a lovefest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The liberal daytime host predictably fawned over the New Jersey Senator and urged him to attack the President, claiming that a series of recent tweets proved Trump was “losing his mind.” Later in the interview, Booker returned the favor by praising DeGeneres for her supposed “goodness, kindness, and decency.”
During her fawning one-hour show devoted to promoting Michelle Obama’s new memoir on Thursday, daytime host and Democratic activist Ellen DeGeneres put together a montage of liberal journalists showering the former First Lady with adoring coverage throughout Barack Obama’s administration. DeGeneres told Mrs. Obama that the purpose of the sycophantic video was to celebrate her “amazing impact.”
“When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are!” Unless of course you’re Keira Knightley’s daughter Edie. That little girl is unfortunate enough to have a “woke” Mommy who won’t let her will see certain Disney classics.
During an interview with Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie aired Friday morning, liberal talk show host Ellen DeGeneres reacted to allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by blasting the judge for being able to “get away with” being “angry” during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in which Democrats were smearing him as a rapist.
One might expect Jerry Seinfeld's latest edition of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, "2018: Freshly Brewed," on Netflix to get political, since comedians just can't seem to help themselves right now in jumping on the Trump bashing train, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the focus on funny instead of on politics. In fact, when guests tried to get political, Seinfeld quickly shut them down, or - shock - they talked about liberal intolerance!
