You May Have Already Heard About This

The Academy Awards Hug-A-Thon and Trump Bashing Show aired last night. Interspersed among the preening and self-congratulations there were bitter, sarcastic diatribes against the man who won an election by appealing to people who have never been or ever will be a part of the Hollywood stuffed shirts.

Kimmel Trashes Trump

Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel predictably trashed President Trump. He said the Oscars were being watched in more than 225 countries that now hate the U.S.

[CtH: Maybe, maybe not.  The show hit a 9 year ratings low.]

He called on the star-studded crowd to give a ‘highly overrated’ Meryl Streep a standing ovation before joking about her dress, saying ‘by the way, is that an Ivanka?’

And he said Trump would later tweet about all of the Oscar winner’s acceptance speeches ‘in all caps’, then tweeted: ‘Hey @realDonaldTrump u up?’

Italian make up artist Alessandro Bertolazzi dedicated his Oscar win to ‘all the immigrants’

Moonlight director Barry Jenkins said people who don’t feel like they have support can look to the American Civil Liberties Union and artists over the next four years.

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, who won an Oscar for his film The Salesman, issued a statement saying he was not present out of ‘respect for the people of my country’ who have been banned from entering the U.S.

[CtH: Hey, schmuck, how about respecting the American men and women who served, sweated, suffered, and died to free you from Saddam Hussein and help you set up a democratic government for the first time in your sorry history.]


Moonlight director Barry Jenkins said in accepting the Oscar for adapted screenplay that people who don’t feel like they have support can look to the American Civil Liberties Union and artists over the next four years

CARE TO GUESS WHY ‘MOONLIGHT’ WON? REMEMBER THE #OSCARS SO WHITE LAST YEAR?… THERE YOU GO.

Oscars shots are pure gold for Donald Trump: Hollywood elites’ snark bolsters prez
Before the best picture gaffe stole the show last night, Hollywood took some shots at President Trump during the Academy Awards, a chorus political strategists say plays right into the president’s hands and solidifies his status as the antithesis of liberal elites.

GOP strategist Ford O’Connell said the Americans who put Trump in the White House would likely be put off by quips at the commander in chief.

“Any time Hollywood liberals politically grandstand it helps the president,” O’Connell said. “Ordinary Americans have never been to Tinseltown, and their concerns revolve around making rent and paying college loans, not virtue signaling for the sake of standing on a red carpet.”

Jimmy Kimmel Disses Trump, Praises Meryl Streep & More In Opening Monologue At 2017 Oscars

THIS IS WHAT EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT:

Warren Beatty Opens Up About Oscar Blunder: It Wasn’t Our Fault
Walking past the backstage area at the Dolby Theatre en route to the Governors Ball, Beatty, 79, told a small group of reporters, “I don’t know anything … I don’t think anyone knows. I’ve asked and I haven’t got an answer.”

According to People, Beatty added: “I read the card that was in the envelope. I read it but I didn’t say La La Land. I thought, ‘This is very strange because it says Best Actress on the card.’ And I felt that maybe there was some sort of misprint.

Steve Harvey has hilarious response to Warren Beatty’s Oscars flub

ABC Praises Kimmel for ‘Setting Tone’ With ‘Very Funny’ Anti-Trump Jokes at Oscars
ABC then played several sound bites of host Jimmy Kimmel’s anti-Trump jokes, which mocked Trump for being racist, petty, and causing the rest of the world to “hate us.” ABC also touted celebrities’ political speeches against the immigration ban and pins supporting liberal causes like the ACLU. Llamas even noting how many retweets Kimmel’s anti-Trump tweets received.

[CtH: This is “news”?  And these people COMPLAIN that Trump doesn’t treat them nicely?]

LLAMAS: Kimmel even tweeting at the president first asking, ‘Hey, real Donald Trump, you up?’ Then ‘#MerylSaysHi’ both retweeting half a million times and counting the first becoming Kimmel’s most retweeted ever just after 15 minutes.

I’D HAVE KNOCKED THE LITTLE BITCH ON HER ASS

Jordan Peele’s ‘Get Out’ mixes horror and comedy: movie review

THIS MOVIE GROSSED $30M/ I GUESS A BLACK DUDE BOINKING A WHITE GIRL AND MURDERING HER WHOLE FAMILY IS HILARIOUS
The story kicks off when Rose (Allison Williams) invites her boyfriend Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) to take a drive out of town and meet her parents. He’s a little cautious. Did she inform them that he is black? She hasn’t, but swears that Mom and Dad (Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford) are perfectly open-minded, Obama-supporting progressives. Nothing to worry about.
Initial awkward conversations (like a family friend boasting that he once golfed “with Tiger”) soon turn sinister. Just why is everyone behaving so strangely, especially the African-American groundskeeper and maid?

    The roast WILL go on: White House Correspondents’ Association says dinner will be a ‘celebration of the First Amendment’ after Trump pulled out because ‘he wasn’t elected to talk to celebrities or reporters’

    Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday that he would not be attending the dinner
    The White House Correspondents’ Association has said that it will carry on
    It said that the dinner will ‘continue to be a celebration of the First Amendment’
    And it will continue to celebrate political journalism from 2016, it said
    Trump continued attacks against press on Sunday, mocking NYT and ‘fake news’

    This is why Trump is skipping the Correspondents’ Dinner


    Sanders compared Trump’s open hostility with the press to getting egged.

    “One of the things we say in the South [is] if a Girl Scout egged your house, would you buy cookies from her? I think that this is a pretty similar scenario,” Sanders said.

    “There’s no reason for him to go in and sit and pretend like this is going to be just another Saturday night.”

    Comeback Kid? Hillary Tells Dems: ‘I’ll be right there with you every step of the way’

    Remember the middle-school retort when someone would promise to join in on something: “is that a promise, or a threat?” The line comes to mind upon viewing a video that Hillary Clinton put out this past Friday, aired by Morning Joe today.

    After urging Dems to stay focused on future elections, she declares “let resistance plus persistence” equal progress. Clinton concludes, “I’ll be right there with you every step of the way.” Hillary puts extra emphasis on those last words: every step of the way. Every step? This is a woman who is not going away. Hillary 2020, anyone?

      Like she was “there” with her supporters on election night? :;snort:: One of my favorite tweets was from a Trump guy who noticed that 10-year-old Barron stayed up later and more sober than his dad’s opponent.

    Leaked Audio Reveals Anti-Trump Forces Manufacturing Hostile Town Hall

    The activists split up into an “inside team” — tasked with occupying “as many seats as we can” and an “outside team,” whose job was to “give [the media] the coverage they want” before joining the others inside. Activists were instructed to dress like conservatives and leave at home “any signifier that you’re a liberal” in order to blend in with constituents.

    The leftist activists strategized how best to “dominate” the question-and-answer section of the town hall and keep anyone “sympathetic” to Cassidy from asking a question.

    Fordham Professor: White Women Choose Patriarchy Over Their Own Interests, Democracy ‘Set Up To Protect White Women’

    Friday on MSNBC, Fordham University Associate Professor Dr. Christina Greer reacted to President Donald Trump’s White House counselor Kellyanne Conway saying that liberal feminists “have a problem with women in power,” accusing white women of choosing “patriarchy over their own interests.”

    Greer added that democracy “is set up to protect white women.”

    Ex-Con Jesse Jackson Jr.’s 6-Figure Government Payout Under Scrutiny…

    WHAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW IS ILLINOIS PASSED A LAW IN JULY,2012 CAPPING WORKER’S COMP MAXIMUM BENEFITS AT $50K PER YEAR.
    JACKASS ACTUALLY BACKDATED HIS CLAIM TO JUNE 2012 SO HE’D SCOOP UP THE LARGER PAYOUT.
    WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?HE’S A JACKSON
    The Chicago Tribune reported Jackson receives $100,000 per year in worker’s compensation benefits because he has bipolar disorder and depression and another $38,400 per year in disability benefits. Craig Holman, from the watchdog group Public Citizen, called that amount of money “breathtaking” for a former congressman.

    “I can’t imagine in any way that his bipolar disorder would have been caused in any way by his congressional duties,” Holman said. “It’s really troubling to see someone who goes to prison for corruption coming out of prison (and collecting that money).”

    SPEAKING OF HUMAN GARBAGE THAT DESERVES TO ROT IN PRISON:
    OJ Simpson may be released from prison this year

    If he is let out of prison, the 69-year-old former running back for the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers can cash in on the $2.7 million that has accrued from his retirement benefits, according to a report from the Sunday Express.

    But the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman — for whose murders Simpson was found civilly liable in 1997 — won’t see a penny, as a pension cannot be collected for outstanding claims.
    THE GOLDMANS MUST BE DYING INSIDE

    REPULSIVE MONGREL INBREDS
    A group of boneheaded brawlers used chairs to beat one another in a no holds barred beatdown at a Bronx restaurant, according to police and video of the incident.
    By the time cops from the 45th precinct got there the scrappers had scampered off.

    Police investigated the incident, but no official reports were filed by any victims.
