In this year’s list of bizarre things to happen, a stoned rapper finding his version of religion takes the cake. In the wake of rapper Snoop Dogg’s recent release of a gospel album, it’s easy to forget that only 12 months ago he was so virulently anti-Trump.
We have a fresh reminder of the Kennedys’ irresponsibility, arrogance, entitlement and dishonesty. So why would the man touted by the media as “America’s Conscience” encourage one of that brood to run for president? Good question.
One thing that defines liberals is their incessant desire to push political messages into every time and space. In a national poll of 1,000 likely voters by McLaughlin & Associates, 75 percent of the respondents said they agreed with this statement: “When I watch live sports or entertainment shows on television, I am trying to get away from politics and do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages.” Only 17 percent disagreed. All the intensity was on the Just Say No side: 52 percent “strongly agreed” with the frustration with politics, and only six percent “strongly disagreed.”
There’s been quite an uproar since Roseanne Barr announced that her character in the upcoming Roseanne reboot is a Trump supporter. The Washington Post even compared her to fictional bigot Archie Bunker. On Thursday night, Barr battled liberal comedian Jimmy Kimmel, telling him that he was “f-[bleeped] far out” when it came to the country.
During his political-centric monologue on Thursday night, “America’s Conscience” and ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel quipped that he’s “never wanted to see and not see anything more than I either do or do not want to see” a Donald Trump-Stormy Daniels sex tape and lobbied for donations to her legal defense fund so any sex tape(s) and/or explicit photo(s) can be made public.
The “dog bites man” part of the annual Oscars telecast has arrived. The Oscar ratings for Sunday’s show, in which The Shape of Water won Best Picture, sunk yet again. How bad did they drop? Early estimates show 20 percent collapse, making it the least seen Oscars telecast ever.
Heading into the 2018 Oscars on Sunday night, it was already a given that the awards show would be dominated by left-wing politics. With the liberal media over the moon over the Oscars, the ratings were bound to take a tumble and, boy, did they ever. All told, the 18.9 preliminary Nielsen rating marked an embarrassing 15.6 percent fall from the Kimmel-hosted 2017 edition.
In a repeat performance from last year, late night talk show host turned liberal political activist Jimmy Kimmel hosted The Oscars on March 4. Aired on ABC in prime time, the 90th Academy Awards show was so self-indulgent and stuffed with liberal propaganda, that it ran a full 50 minutes late.
The Washington Post gushed all over ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel on the morning before he hosts the Oscars, but reporter Geoff Edgers didn’t focus on the Oscars. It began by honoring his teary sermon about Health Care For All. The headline was "Late show of emotion: Jimmy Kimmel might be America’s conscience but he’ll still do anything for a laugh."
Ratings for politically-charged awards shows are tanking. The Oscars telecast suffers serious ratings slippage each winter. The New York Times recently reported that analyzing ratings during awards shows finds audiences fleeing when the stars summon their soapboxes. Naturally, the minds behind the gala want to reverse that trend. Thus the synchronized sentiments for a less partisan night dedicated to film. It’s likely Grade-A spin.
Many red-state Americans who used to love the awards shows on TV are now wary of celebrities who cannot help but use this platform to spew their hatred of Trump and the evil/stupid conservatives who keep Hollywood liberals from running (ruining) America. Hollywood may finally be getting the message that TV ratings are suffering because the public has grown weary of people turning live events into leftist political rallies.
ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel admitted on Good Morning America today that he wasn’t going to address Hollywood’s problem with sexual assault, while hosting this year’s Academy Awards, because he didn’t want to “make it unpleasant.” However, he also confessed that he didn’t regret “anything” he’s said against President Trump, Republicans and the millions of legal gun owners in this country.
