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?

Under Trump, your puddles will belong to you

In May of 2015, the Obama administration made one of its more shocking and unacceptable power grabs with the EPA’s Waters of the United States rule.  

This rule defined almost all fresh water, including puddles, to be subject to federal oversight and regulation.

President Trump is going to reverse the rule probably this week.

Judge Napolitano explains the depth of the problem with this rule.

Same as the Old Boss

The Democratic party chose their new leader yesterday. The white-hating, Clinton- and Obama-backed, communist candidate, Tom Perez, defeated the Jew-hating, Sanders-, Schumer- and Black Lives Matter-backed, Muslim candidate, Keith Ellison.  Perez’ first act as DNC Chair was to suck up to the Muslim Ellison and make him his co-chair.

Liberal activists, new DNC chief face a Trump-era reckoning

“We don’t have the luxury of walking out of this room divided,” Ellison said over the jeers. Afterward, he told reporters he trusts Perez and that the burgeoning resistance movement aimed at President Donald Trump should do the same.

“We suffer from a crisis of confidence … a crisis of relevance,” Perez told DNC members ahead of his election.

JUST MINUTES AFTER NEW DNC CHAIR CHOSEN…Wikileaks Exposes Him For Political Wrongdoing
Thank you, Wikileaks! Just 18 minutes after a new DNC chair was chosen, Wikileaks tweeted out a link to emails exposing Tom Perez for sabotaging Bernie Sanders during the 2016 campaign. Bernie Sanders supporters took to twitter to protest with the hashtag #Demexit :

Perez is a total scumbag! We have so much information on this La Raza pro-illegal former Obama Labor Secretary.

Tom Perez: ‘White People NOT Entitled to Protection Under Voting Rights Act’
Tom Perez Has A Strong History Of Racism

New DNC Chair, Tom Perez, fits right in with the values of the Democratic party, especially when it comes to victimizing minorities and labeling white people as privileged.

An investigation into Perez revealed extreme views he holds according to A Review of the Operations of the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division conducted by the Office of the Inspector General Oversight and Review Division in March of 2013.

Perez told investigators that white people were not entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act according to a report from the Washington Free Beacon.

Trump: DNC chairman’s race ‘rigged’

The race split along establishment-grassroots lines and in many ways mirrored the divisive 2016 presidential primary between Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Hillary Clinton.

Sanders and many of his allies backed Ellison, the first-ever Muslim elected to Congress and a star on the left.

“Congratulations to Thomas Perez, who has just been named Chairman of the DNC. I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party!” Trump tweeted on Sunday, sparking a response from the new DNC chairman.

Perez Tells Trump He’s Going to Be His ‘Worst Nightmare’

In response, Perez, the former Obama labor secretary, told Trump to wipe the grin off his face. He, his deputy chair Keith Ellison, and all Democrats are now a united front, he argued.

Call me Tom. And don’t get too happy. @keithellison and I, and Democrats united across the country, will be your worst nightmare.

Perez can talk a big game, but even his own party is dissatisfied with the new leadership. The former labor secretary, they argue, represents the establishment wing of the party. Ellison would have been the only true “grassroots” leader. What’s more, the DNC voted to continue allowing corporate cash to flow in, proving they’re not so “progressive” after all.

FACTOID: BLABBERMOUTH SCHULTZ QUIETLY CHANGED THE RULES TO ALLOW CORPORATE DONATIONS IN ORDER FOR HILLARY TO DEFEAT SANDERS.

OH, YEAH. THE OSCARS ARE TONIGHT, IF ANYBODY’S INTERESTED. I’M NOT.

The Stars of Sexist and Racist Hollywood Shine Bright Tonight

DNC sign proves Democrats are RAAAAAAAAACISTS

Whenever the subject of requiring voters to produce a photo ID comes up, Democrats scream how RAAAAAAACIST it is.

The Obama administration actually joined in on a lawsuit filed against Kansas, Alabama, and Georgia, when these states altered the rules to require their residents to show a photo ID before registering to vote.

  • Never mind that Mexico requires not just a photo ID, but a specific VOTER ID that contains not just a photo but also a thumb print.
  • And never mind how racist it is to suggest that People of Color are too DUMB to obtain a photo ID.
  • Also ignore the problem with voters including people who are too dumb to obtain a photo ID.

But yeah … besides all that.  Ahem.

So you’ve probably heard that the Dems had a pow-wow to elect their new chair.

Here’s a sign from the event:

The next big Trump-Won-Butthurt event

On March 8, Trump Haters are going to have a Day without a Woman.

Women around the country are being urged to walk off their jobs and spend their day “blocking roads, bridges, and squares, abstaining from domestic, care and sex work” and “boycotting” pro-Trump businesses while wearing red.

Their manifesto says we need a “new wave of militant feminist struggle.”  Yes, militant.

It was co-authored by:

  • Rasmea Yousef Odeh, who spent 10 years in an Israeli prison for her part in two 1970 terrorist bombings.
  • Angela Davis, a Stalinist professor and longtime supporter of the Black Panthers.
  • Tithi Bhattacharya, who thinks Maoism is really, really cool.
