LIAR … Rep. John Lewis Boycotting Trump Inauguration … He Boyycotted George W. Bush’s Inauguration, Also
LIAR … HOW SAD IS IT THAT A ONCE HONORABLE AND COURAGE MAN MUST DIMINISH HIMSELF DUE TO PARTISAN POLITICS.
Democratic Congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis says he’s boycotting Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday.He said in an interview below that it will be the first one he has ever missed. LIAR!!! As stated at National Review, this isn’t the first time Lewis has boycotted a presidential inauguration. Because the internet and Google are so unforgiving to those who don’t want to tell the truth. According to a Washington Post article written on January 21, 2001, Lewis and other members of the Black Caucus boycotted George W. Bush’s inauguration because they didn’t “believe Bush is the true elected president.”
Georgia representative and civil-rights leader John Lewis announced last week that he will boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20. “I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” Lewis told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd. “You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong, is not right.”
Since Lewis announced his boycott of the inauguration, and Trump subsequently denounced Lewis as “all talk, talk, talk — no action or results,” the ranks of Democratic representatives staying home rather than witnessing the peaceful transition of power have swelled to over two dozen. Newspapers continue to cite the boycott as an unprecedented act. For example, the Sacramento Bee claimed that the boycott was “breaking with generations of past precedent.” And Business Insider erroneously reported that the 2017 inauguration will be “the first time he [Lewis] will miss an inauguration since 1986,” the year he was elected to Congress.
Maybe some one would like to ask why and how he thinks that Trump is not a legitimate president? Hey MSM, do your damn job. This man is a politician and questions need to be asked. What is really at play here? Democrats are so scared that Trump will succeed that they fell they need to destroy him now. And then what if Trump and the GOP make inroads with blacks? Imagine if Trump actually lifts blacks up. Democrats fear losing their voting block and they will do anything before that happens.
Meryl Streep called out Donald Trump at the Golden Globes. … Hollywood Just Does Not Get That They Live in LA LA LAND, Not the Real World … Trump Responded Calling Her ‘Over-Rated’
AWE, THOSE POOR HOLLYWOOD TYPES IN THEIR DESIGNER DRESSES AND JEWELS …
Meryl Streep took the opportunity at last night’s Golden Globe awards, another opportunity for the privileged to get together and reward themselves, to go after president-elect Donald trump. Yawn, this is getting real old. But what else would you expect from Hollywood and all the people who in the room were still in mourning?Believe it or not, the out of touch actress also stated that Hollywood and the media were victims as she stated, “You and all of us in this room really belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it: Hollywood, foreigners and the press.” Just how out of touch can one possibly be?
Meryl Streep went after Trump for his comments to a disables reporter. Hmm, you know what was conspicuous by her actions and solemn plea … where was her compassion and caring for the white, special needs, mentally disabled man who was tortured by 4 blacks and broadcast on Facebook Live? Or where was her outrage when Barack Obama made fun of Special Olympics? Yeah I know, it’s Hollywood … crickets. The double standard in Hollywood is despicable and reason number 42.9 why America rose up and elected Donald trump.
It’s no secret that Hollywood skews liberal, and there were probably few Donald Trump fans in the audience at Sunday’s Golden Globes. And while the awards show kicked off with a few jokes at the president-elect’s expense, Meryl Streep took an incredibly serious tone when addressing the recent presidential election.
Streep accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award — basically a lifetime achievement award — but didn’t say much about her career. Instead, she spent the minutes allotted to her to speak critically of the current political climate and Trump, although she didn’t mention the president-elect by name.
“There was one performance this year that stunned me,” she said. “It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. But it was effective, and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth.
“It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it. I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”
Streep was referring to Trump’s remarks during the campaign, when he appeared to mock New York Times reporter Serge F. Kovaleski, who has arthrogryposis, which visibly limits the functioning of his joints.
“And this instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, ’cause it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” the actress said.
UPDATE I: Kellyanne Conway told “Fox and Friends” Monday that she’s “concerned that somebody with a platform like Meryl Streep’s is inciting people’s worst instincts.”
Me the Elite and Hollywood Celebrities Share Their Most Memorable Moments from the Obama Presidency (VIDEO)
WARNING: VIDEO MAY INDUCE PROJECTILE VOMITING …
Thankfully, there are just days left in the long enduring disaster that has been the 8 years of the Obama presidency. But of course the Hollywood elite and liberal activists are in hyperventilation mode and now providing us the below reminiscing of the failed Obama years and their memorable moments. How I cannot wait for a world in which Hollywood elites like Leonardo DiCaprio do not have an open invitation to the White House. The last eight years can be summed up by Leo’s ignorant statement, “When I was at the U.N. and I heard our president say that climate change is the most important issue facing, not only this generation but also future generations.” Did Leo say this before or after he got off his private jet with the carbon footprint the size of Kansas? Really most pressing issue of our time, not terrorism? Sadly, Obama believed his own BS.
The most pressing question from the AP is whether Hollywood will be in the mood to celebrate at tonight’s Golden Globe awards with the doom and dread of a Trump presidency.
Though usually a boisterous affair, Trump’s upcoming inauguration is looming over this year’s ceremony. Throughout Hollywood’s awards season, many celebs have evoked a sense of dread over a Trump presidency.
My lasting memory will be of Obama waiving a final goodbye …Good riddance!!!
Celebrities, activists and others gave an emotional goodbye to President Obama in a new video by the White House titled “Yes We Can: Your Most Memorable Moments from the Obama Presidency.”
The video features figures including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Jerry Seinfeld and Ellen DeGeneres, all sharing some of their favorite moments with the president.
“I never cried before, from an election result,” singer John Legend says in the video.
“When I was at the U.N. and I heard our president say that climate change is the most important issue facing, not only this generation but also future generations, it was inspiring,” DiCaprio said.
CNN’s Don Lemon Defends Chicago Black on White Hate Crime, Kidnapping & Assulat … “I Don’t Think It Was Evil, Just Bad Home Training” (VIDEO)
LIBERALISM REALLY IS A MENTAL DISEASE … JUST LISTEN TO CNN’S DON LEMON DEFENDING THE HEINOUS HATE CRIME ASSAULT ON A MENTALLY DISABLED MAN …
This is how low the liberal media and CNN has sunk. Yesterday, CNN anchor Don Lemon actually defended the viscous and despicable hate crime attack on a white, mentally disabled man by four black teens. Lemon stated, “I don’t think it was evil, just bad home training”. Are you serious? To not say what this was, is not only insane, it is racist. I am sure Mr. Lemon would have quite a differing opinion has the roles been reversed. How long can CNN actually employ this man?
Hey Don, why don;t you have another drink.
More despicable actions from CNN … Dem CNN Contributor Unsure if Chicago Attack on White, Special Needs Man Is a Hate Crime
Symone Sanders, a CNN contributor who previously served as press secretary for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) presidential campaign, was skeptical on Wednesday night that the torture of a white man with special needs constitutes a hate crime.
CNN host Don Lemon assembled a panel late Wednesday evening to discuss the gruesome video that shows a white man with special needs being tortured by a group of African-American teenagers. The video had been posted to Facebook Live, and the four suspects have since been arrested by the Chicago Police Department. The suspects in the video shout, “Fuck Donald Trump! Fuck white people.”
While discussing the video, Lemon noted that the Chicago Police Department is investigating whether the attack could be labeled a hate crime. He then asked Sanders whether she would classify the incident as a hate crime.
Sanders first denounced the crime, describing it as “sickening,” but then questioned whether the act should be described as a hate crime.
“We can’t callously call things hate crime,” Sanders said. “Is this hate for Donald Trump or pure hate of white people? That matters.”
Sanders tried to explain her distinction between what she would view as a hate crime versus a crime committed against someone because of their political beliefs.
“Because someone does not like your political leanings and they do something bad to you, that is not a hate crime,” Sanders said.
ASSANGE CLAIMS RUSSIANS NOT THE SOURCE OF WIKILEAKS PODESTA HACKED EMAILS …
In an exclusive interview with FOX News Channel’s Sean Hannity, the founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange said that Russia was not the source for the DNC and John Podesta hacked emails. Barack Obama and Democrats have blamed Russia for interfering in US elections with the hacks. Or is it that Democrats are looking to shift blame from themselves and Hillary Clinton’s embarrassing 2016 presidential election loss to Donald Trump? The WikiLeaks founder said that the Obama administration trying to ‘delegitimize’ Trump and his electoral landslide victory.
“They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House,” Assange said during an interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity airing Tuesday night, according to a transcript of excerpts from the network.
“They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate president,” Assange said during the interview, which was conducted at the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he has been staying.
HANNITY: Can you say to the American people, unequivocally, that you did not get this information about the DNC, John Podesta’s emails, can you tell the American people 1,000 percent that you did not get it from Russia or anybody associated with Russia?
JULIAN ASSANGE: Yes. We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party.
ASSANGE: Our publications had wide uptake by the American people, they’re all true. But that’s not the allegation that’s being presented by the Obama White House. So, why such a dramatic response? Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President…
ASSANGE: Our source is not a state party, so the answer for our interactions is no. But if we look at our most recent statement from the US government, which is on the 29th of December, OK, we had five different branches of government, Treasury, DHS, FBI, White House presenting their accusations to underpin Obama’s throwing out 29 Russian diplomats. What was missing from all of those statements? The word WikiLeaks. It’s very strange.
