Fourth of July
Appearing on Friday’s CBS This Morning to analyze President Trump’s July 4th address, Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan thought it was “unusual” that the event was actually “unifying.” She also complained that Trump “overemphasized America’s military might” throughout the speech.
Appearing on MSNBC’s 9:00 a.m. ET hour on Friday, Daily Beast editor Christopher Dickey trashed President Trump’s Fourth of July event, labeling it a “delusional” speech that promoted “rabid nationalism.” Just for good measure, Dickey also threw in a quote from George Orwell warning about such attitudes treating human beings like “insects.”
Just days before the celebration of our nation’s birthday, the New York Times tried to rain on our Fourth of July parade.
The difference between patriots and Trump-deranged Hollywood elites is day and night. This morning, actor Jon Voight appeared on Fox and Friends with Gold Star mom Karen Vaughn -- mother of a slain Navy SEAL -- to speak about the July 4th “Rally for Freedom.” When asked about an Alyssa Milano tweet calling him a “has been” and an “F-lister,” Voight prayed for the good of his fellow actor.
Best way to celebrate Independence Day in the #resistance, is to apologize to the world for this awful thing called the Trump administration. Comedian turned activist Chelsea Handler did that on Twitter on the 4th of July, addressing every other country. The unhinged entertainer tweeted, “To every country on the 4th of July. We’re sorry about our president. He doesn’t reflect all of our views -- and we hope you know that the majority of us are ashamed. We will rally each other and come back to the world one step at a time. #novemberiscoming #alsosorryabouthotdogs.”
Hollywood produces a lot of liberal, anti-American films. But, occasionally, filmmakers get things right, offering movies and TV shows that showcase the best about our country. In honor of Independence Day, we at NewsBusters compiled five of the most patriotic movie or TV scenes.
Movies such as "Red Dawn" and "Rocky IV" captured a time when Hollywood actually portrayed the U.S. as a force for good and not evil. Other films on this list showed our country at its best, fighting for freedom. [See below for video of what made the list!]
