Famous faces always do well in selling a product – and sex does even better. So if Carl’s Jr. can do it for burgers, why can’t Hollywood do it for midterm election votes? Same principle, right?
At an event called the “People’s State of the Union,” one would not expect so many progressive partisan speeches from out of touch celebrities.
But the event, which took place on January 29th in Manhattan, was just that. Between Wanda Sykes starting the rally with a Margaret Sanger story and Mark Ruffalo telling the audience, “Don’t let the Koch brothers think that they can buy the American government!’, the entire evening was merely leading up to Michael Moore’s incendiary stemwinder. In the speech, the grade A America hater and D- documentary director stated that the people “must remove and replace the system and the culture that gave us Trump in the first place!”
From carefully planned interviews to actual protests, Hollywood is doing its very best to thwart President Trump’s State of the Union speech.
Wealthy, over-privileged actors and actresses have decided to give what they think is a more accurate depiction of the state of the union. Mark Ruffalo, organizing a “star-studded counter-event”, told People Magazine that his protest would be “a better reflection of our state of the union based on a more populist point of view, based on the people’s point of view.”
Celebrities love being affirmed and validated. So while Hollywood is being rocked with its own sex abuse scandals around its brightest stars, plenty of has-beens are celebrating Manafort’s indictment. All of Hillary’s biggest celebrity supporters, acting as circling sharks since November 9, 2016, spent October 30 on Twitter wildly celebrating the indictment of a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump. Singer Cher stated today: “WHY DO ALL “TRUMP” ROADS LEAD TO RUSSIA.”
Kicking someone when they are down is never a good thing. It’s even less tasteful when wealthy, entitled Hollywood uses national tragedies to preach to the public about climate change. But while Hurricane Irma threatened Florida over the weekend, many celebrities did just that.
Hollywood actor and liberal activist Mark Ruffalo tweeted that he would be marching 18 miles with all 23 people from Charlottesville to Washington D.C. to protest white supremacy and call for the removal of President Donald Trump. The only thing is, he dropped out after eight miles, making it seem more like a movie-star photo-op.
Well, Hollywood celebrities and other elite liberals reacted about like you’d expect to the Trump administration’s decision to rescind Obama’s unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. The overwhelming accusations of racism and hatred levied by Hollywood’s loudest (and most privileged) in the past two or three days have glossed over the context of the DACA policy, the decision to overturn it, and the potential consequences (which are unknown at this point).
Money walks, talks, and screams. At a protest, naturally, it should scream louder. So it should come as no surprise that some of Donald Trump’s famous (and wealthy) opponents went on a loud chanting protest in front of the Trump Tower on August 15, led by everyone’s favorite wealthy protester, director Michael Moore.
On Saturday, left-wing actor Mark Ruffalo tweeted out support for a petition denouncing NBC News and MSNBC – not for the blatant liberal bias at both networks, but for the supposed laughable offense of going on a “white conservative hiring spree.” [h/t Hot Air]
The arts and literature pages offer no respite from the New York Times political thrust. Lisa Birnbach hung out with actor Mark Ruffalo, perhaps best known for his role as The Hulk in the series of Avengers superhero movies, for her front-page Arts story, “The Actor’s Activist, Onstage.” Ruffalo is participating in a politicized revival of Arthur Miller’s obscure anti-capitalism play “The Price,” and Birnbaum indulged the actor’s love of Bernie Sanders, John Kerry, and left-wing protests. Meanwhile, Sunday book reviewers found ominous parallels to Stalin and the Red Scare in Trump's America.
The liberal news media have been rabidly anti-Trump throughout the campaign. But that bias intensified as polling time neared.
The day before the U.S. election, Vanity Fair contributing editor Kurt Eichenwald launched a Twitterstorm of “top 129 findings from my investigation of Trump.” All but one of those tweets were negative toward the Republican presidential nominee and cited all manner of transgressions from “deception” and “lies,” to destruction of documents, business failures and claims he “cheats at golf.”
Left-wing Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo, known for his role as the Hulk in the smash hit Avengers movies, is slamming President Obama on his outright hypocrisy for presenting himself as a “green” president while permitting fracking and other fossil fuel extraction that goes against the environmentalist ethos.
Ruffalo recently spoke at a Los Angeles rally against the Dakota Access Pipeline and man-made climate change which has seen an increase in protests the last few weeks. He told the crowd: "President Obama, it is immoral for you to keep drilling in our state lands, in our federal lands, off our federal waters, while at the same time calling yourself a climate change leader."
