Everyone’s favorite liberal commentator, that esteemed analyst, Rob Reiner, has an opinion again. Heaven help us.
The wealthy elite actors who are the face of the #resistance have had a very bad day. After Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court on June 27, wailing and grinding of teeth could be heard from Tinseltown across the Twitterverse. The apocalyptic predictions reached a fever pitch: Kennedy’s retiring meant the end of Roe v. Wade, the end of democracy, and the end of our government, according to Hollywood. Statements like, “This is a disaster,” “We are in MAJOR, MAJOR trouble,” and “SCOTUS is going to be a dumpster fire,” echoed throughout.
On Sunday's AM Joy, MSNBC host Joy Reid served up a double helping of "Meathead" as liberal film maker Rob Reiner and his wife, Michele Reiner, spent a segment ranting against President Donald Trump and his "hardcore racist" supporters. Michele Reiner invoked Nazi death camps as she called Trump "evil" and likened him to Adolf Hitler. Rob Reiner repeatedly accused Trump supporters of being "racists" if they agree that immigrants who cross the border illegally should be prosecuted, resulting in some being separated from their children during detention as required by law.
In an interview posted on Wednesday, Hollywood Director Rob Reiner criticized Robert De Niro's profane, F-bomb Tony Awards speech aimed at President Donald Trump because such antics end up "helping Trump." (He didn't mention that the crowd's gleeful applause and Hollywood elitists' support on social media for De Niro's rant contributed mightily to "helping Trump.") On Howard Kurtz's Sunday Media Buzz show, Reiner demonstrated his obvious belief that any other direct or indirect criticism of Trump, no matter how unhinged or utterly divorced from reality — a long as it contains no profanity — is just fine.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's Morning Joe to promote his new film on the Iraq War, Shock and Awe, liberal film maker Rob Reiner claimed that Fox News, Breitbart News and other right-leaning news outlets are acting as "state-run media" for President Donald Trump, and laughably claimed that President Bill Clinton "wasn't supported by the mainstream media."
Movie director Rob Reiner appeared on Friday's Morning Joe to announce his historical verdict: This is the first time in American history that "state-run TV" networks like Fox and Sinclair ever "aligned with a president of the United States." The networks never aligned with JFK, or Bill Clinton, or Barack Obama.
Conservative representation in entertainment merits mudslinging, according to the liberal media.
At least, that’s the impression an AM Joy panel gave. In a discussion on April 1 over the new ABC reboot of Roseanne, three guests – including actor and director Rob Reiner – and host Joy Reid levied harsh judgment of the show. The actor and director more commonly known as “Meathead” decided that the problem with Roseanne Barr, a real-life Trump supporter, is that she and her character are too similar.
You really have to credit liberal celebrities for their attempts to dial back the vitriol and heal the differences between us. If only we could find some of those celebs. Instead, we get director Rob Reiner who, in an acceptance speech for his Social Justice Award at the African American Film Critics Association Awards, referred to his issues with the current administration as the “last battle of the Civil War.”
Donald Trump’s State of the Union address was immediately panned by liberal reporters, hosts and celebrities as a “divisive” speech that stoked “racial tensions” by emphasizing offensive themes like “church” “family and the “military.” Yes, you saw that right. MSNBC’s Joy Reid was appalled that Trump promoted those “terms of the bygone era.” The following are the most egregious examples of anti-Trump liberal media hate that surrounded his State of the Union address:
MSNBC’s hyperbolic, frenzied State of the Union coverage climaxed in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Despite the fact that 75 percent of Americans approved of the speech, director Rob Reiner lamented that “intelligent people” like Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow were forced to listen to the “racist” “liar” Trump.
Leave it to Hollywood to offer some less than valuable commentary on breaking stories.
Actually, leave it to Meathead. When Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) released the testimony from Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS (the company commissioned to make the Trump/Steele dossier), the actor and director weighed in with what he thought was a reasonable statement.
Meathead has returned again (does he ever really go away?) to tell the people all about President Trump.
As part of his major interview tour to raise publicity for his new film, LBJ, director Rob Reiner made an appearance on November 14 on The Jim Jefferies Show on Comedy Central to add two more cents to his stance on Trump, All in the Family, and sex harassment scandals. As if people needed to know more than what he’s already said.
