We don't even know who President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee will be, but Jennifer Rubin thinks she can prevent his pick from being confirmed by the Senate. Half of her strategy involves telling Maine-headquartered L.L. Bean that it should threaten to "leave Maine" unless Pine Tree State Senator Susan Collins votes against Trump's nominee, and then follow through on that threat if she supports him or her. We'll stop there for a moment to let readers catch their breath.
Michael Moore has returned to inspire hope to the masses in this dark age known as the Trump administration. The shining hero appeared on Colbert to talk about his new anti-Trump movie, and to encourage Democrats that they have the numbers to take this nation back.
As President Trump delivered his State of the Union address on January 30, Hollywood expressed its outrage that Trump actually followed tradition and spoke to the people. Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Wil Wheaton posted before the address: “Tonight, Shitler is going to read a speech filled with lies and falsehoods. He will say things that sound reasonable, but won't mean any of them. Pundits will declare him to be Super Totally Presidential For Real This Time. Do not be fooled. He is a liar, a racist, and a disgrace.”
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!”
It’s hilarious when wealthy, privileged members of Hollywood rail against the system that made them rich. So when director Michael Moore preaches about how capitalism is evil, it’s important to remember that he is worth $50 million, according to Celebrity NetWorth
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.”
Los Angeles Times theatre critic Charles McNulty brought all the drama to assessing how the theater, "the most public-minded of the arts," would deal with the crisis of Donald Trump's election. The headline was "How theater should respond to a democracy in meltdown." We are in a "crisis" at the end of 2017, which means we have liberals who still equate democracy with Democratic victories.
Well, this is a shame. A battle between accused rapist Harvey Weinstein and far-left documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has (at least for the moment) derailed the sequel to Fahrenheit 9/11. The liberal Moore is completing Fahrenheit 11/9. Whereas the first movie bashed George W. Bush and pushed conspiracy nutty theories, the second film will go after Donald Trump. Except... it’s stuck in limbo.
On HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher November 10, the liberal anti-Christian talk show host laid into the Ten Commandments while talking about Alabama’s Roy Moore, with some particularly ignorant comments on what exactly the commandments prohibit. Asking his “Irish Catholic” guests, filmmaker Michael Moore and MSNBC host Chris Matthews about the Moore situation, he stupidly asked why “their” law didn’t prohibit the truly important things like racism, genocide and rape.
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.”
One of the strongest reactions to the killing of 59 people and the wounding of more than 500 others attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in the Las Vegas strip on Sunday by gunman Stephen Paddock came from singer-actress Nancy Sinatra, who posted several harsh posts on the Twitter website casting much of the blame on members of the National Rifle Association.
In the wake of the horrific tragedy in Las Vegas, celebrities have decided to use death as a stump for their activism. And of course, who better to lead the way than professional protester Michael Moore.
