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:
After Melania Trump called out the “opportunistic” media during an interview with Sean Hannity, and after the First Lady’s spokeswoman came to her defense during the ensuing media brouhaha, lefties in showbiz and the media have doubled down on the insults. They’ve taken to slamming Mrs. Trump as a “hypocrite” and a “birther,” while also hurling attacks at her “unrecognizable” appearance, particularly at her new, blonder hair.
Where do you go to find solace if you’re an actress who’s perpetrated a tasteless, gory publicity stunt? The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Kathy Griffin, a comedian who became a household name only after her infamous photoshoot where she grasped the hair of a disembodied, bloody model of President Trump’s head, was welcomed by CBS’s Stephen Colbert on Dec. 7.
Early results of tonight’s election are in, and it’s been all but declared that the house will be flipped by the Democrats. The liberal mouthpieces in Hollywood, having used every propaganda technique they could think of in the lead up to the vote, have already started jumping for joy, because it looks like they have finally — FINALLY — scored a victory against their sworn enemy Donald Trump.
Celebrities and other leftists are excited to unleash the awesome electoral power of #Resist during the midterm elections in November. The catch is, they must actually mobilize people to vote - and if they can’t do it by getting arrested, lying, calling their adversaries “racist,” or actually inspiring civic duty in people (too much trouble nowadays), they must resort to other methods. Kelly Wynne of Newsweek reported on Oct. 16 that clickbait might be the latest shenanigan.
The confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a major political loss for the left-wing mob. As expected, all sorts of wailing and gnashing of teeth ensued, especially from Hollywood liberals who have apparently made it their life’s calling to engage in the hysteria. Many of them took to social media to vent their frustration, and their status updates were extreme to say the least.
Hollywood lefties have already decided that Kavanaugh is a filthy rapist and that his accuser Dr. Ford is a paragon of bravery and a historical figure for women’s rights. Any attempt by Republicans in trying to get to the truth of this scandal has been met with nastiness and derision.
There’s finally a ray of hope for the liberals that have been demanding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s head on a silver platter. One paltry accusation of sexual assault has been levied at the SCOTUS candidate and the progressive world is having a field day. Hollywood liberals have taken to social media to blast Kavanaugh for his alleged abusive past (if one unsubstantiated allegation can be called a past), because it’s the only thing they’ve got to delay his confirmation.
Hollywood has a unique way of overreacting and completely missing the point.
Just when it seemed that Kathy Griffin might actually have learned something from the backlash to the picture of her holding a fake, severed head of Donald Trump more than a year ago, the liberal comedian demonstrated that she still has a serious case of “Foot-in-Mouth Disease."
During the 72nd Annual Tony Awards, on June 10, Robert De Niro stood before a live audience and CBS cameras. Before introducing Bruce Springsteen, the actor announced , “I’m going to say one thing, fuck Trump!” He continued, “It’s no longer down with Trump. It’s fuck Trump.” Because what is an award show without vulgar, smearing politics?
In a time when comedians like Roseanne Barr and Samantha Bee are under scrutiny for their insensitive jokes, it’s entertaining to hear a provocative comedian like Kathy Griffin moan about her right to free speech.
