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.”
Conservatives Team up in Hilarious Parody of ‘Self-Important Hollywood Celeb’ Political Videos … Stop Sucking, Sincerely America
A NOTE TO THE SELF-IMPORTANT HOLLYWOOD TYPES …
Just before tonight’s Golden Globe awards where Hollywood celebrities full of their self-importance and elf-aggrandizement will be on display and mourning the fact that Obama is done and Donald Trump is days away from the White House, maybe they will remember the fact … We the People rejected Hollywood selected Making America great again. With that being said, a few conservative media stars, Guy Benson, S.E. Cupp, Katie Pavlich, Mary Katharine Ham, and Mollie Hemingway, got together to create a video of their own, titled “A Special Message to Predictable, Self-Important Hollywood Celebrities.”
This is in direct mocking opposition to this cry-fest from the liberal elites of Hollywood.
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.
Debbie Reynolds Dies at Age 84 after Suffering a stroke One Day after her Daughter Carrie Fisher Passes Away
SADLY, THERE WILL BE A FUNERAL FOR TWO …
Hollywood legend and icon Debbie Reynolds has passes away at the age of 84 after suffering a stroke. She died just one day after her daughter, Carrie Fisher, died after suffering a massive heart attack and never regaining consciousness. According to reports prior to her stroke Reynold’s stated, “I want to be with Carrie”. The Hollywood icon died at Cedars- Sinai hospital.
Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds died on Wednesday a day after the death of her daughter, telling family before a suspected stroke: ‘I want to be with Carrie’
The 84-year-old was rushed from her son Todd’s Beverly Hills home at around 1pm after falling ill while planning her daughter’s funeral.
She died in hospital hours later.
Todd Fisher revealed on Wednesday evening how his mother had been shattered with grief since his sister’s death the previous day.
On the morning of her death, she told him: ‘I miss her so much, I want to be with Carrie,’ according to TMZ.
Carrie Fisher, 60, died on Tuesday from complications which stemmed from a heart attack she suffered on Christmas Eve while flying to Los Angeles from London.
The vivacious blonde, who had a close but sometimes tempestuous relationship with her daughter, was one of MGM’s principal stars of the 1950s and ’60s in such films as the 1952 classic “Singin’ in the Rain” and 1964’s “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” for which she received an Oscar nomination as best actress.
Reynolds received the SAG lifetime achievement award in January 2015; in August of that year the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences voted to present the actress with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Nov. 14 Governors Awards, but she was unable to attend the ceremony due to an “unexpectedly long recovery from a recent surgery.”
Reynolds had a wholesome girl-next-door look which was coupled with a no-nonsense attitude in her roles. They ranged from sweet vehicles like “Tammy” to more serious fare such as “The Rat Race” and “How the West Was Won.” But amid all the success, her private life was at the center of one of the decade’s biggest scandals when then-husband, singer Eddie Fisher, left her for Elizabeth Taylor in 1958.
MAYBE HOLLYWOOD AND THE LEFT CAN TAKE A QUEUE FROM TOM HANKS … ’We are going to be all right’
While being awarded at the Museum of Modern Art 9th annual film benefit actor Tom Hanks said the following, “This is the United States of America. We’ll go on. There’s great like-minded people out there who are Americans first and Republicans or Democrats second. I hope the president-elect does such a great job that I vote for his reelection in four years.” What a novel concept, rooting for America and place it over party. The Oscar-award winning actor was also recently selected among 21 key figures to be awarded the highest civilian honor in the United States, the 2016 Presidential Medal of Freedom.
A week after the election, with many New Yorkers still feeling uneasy about the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency, a number of entertainment industry luminaries gathered at the Museum of Modern Art to honor Tom Hanks with the organization’s ninth annual Film Benefit, presented by Chanel.
The election results, a surprising outcome for many who opposed Trump, led MoMA’s chief film curator Rajendra Roy to scrap many of his planned jokes, he said, and just proclaim, “Thank God for Tom Hanks.”
Prior to the presidential election, Hanks spoke out against Trump’s lewd Access Hollywood comments, saying he was “offended as a man” and criticizing the then-Republican nominee for his lack of government experience. But speaking to The Hollywood Reporter on the black carpet leading into the gala, he reiterated what he’d said in April on CBS This Morning, and what he would later say in his speech, that the country and its people would be OK.
“This is the United States of America. We’ll go on. There’s great like-minded people out there who are Americans first and Republicans or Democrats second,” Hanks told THR. “I hope the president-elect does such a great job that I vote for his reelection in four years.”
The actor also made it clear that he’d heard Michael Moore’s suggestion that Hanks run for president and he wasn’t too happy about it, indicating he felt he was unfit for the position.
“Not to be completely, over and over coming back to the same thing that I would like to strangle Michael Moore on in offering my name in order to be something other than a CPA, which I’m not qualified to be either,” Hanks said onstage. “We will take everything that has been handed to us as Americans, and we will turn our nation and we will turn the future and we turn all the work that we have before us into some brand of a thing of beauty.”
