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.

Fists Fly: Trump Supporters Not Backing Down To A Bunch of Hollywood Libs At the Oscars

The first woman tries to tear up a Trump sign and they starts throwing punches, she gets arrested.

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?

It’s Not Funny Anymore

A post came up on my Facebook page because my youngest daughter had made a comment on it. She’s a diehard Democrat AND a Green Bay Packer fan. I have failed as a father. She commented on how much she enjoyed SNL. I should have just skipped over it, but I wrote that SNL hasn’t been funny since the 70’s. Today it’s all about mocking Republicans and giving Democrats hugs and wet, sloppy kisses. She snapped back that she likes it and she has a lot of conservative friends who do as well. Ever the diplomat I pointed out that we have the privilege of living in a country where we are free to express our opinions. I left it there, but I could have pointed out if you wear a MAGA hat, you are likely to be assaulted for no other reason … but I let it go.

This is a taste of the “hilarity” that ensued last night on SNL:

SNL: Sean Spicer accuses Nordstrom of committing ‘light terrorism’

McCarthy took to her familiar box of props and dolls, to explain the immigration ban, yelling, “Spicey’s going to explain it so you dumb babies can understand what is going on.” She compared a blonde Barbie doll with a doll of the Disney Polynesian princess from “Moana” to depict who would and wouldn’t be allowed into the U.S.

MORE HILARITY WITH TAPPER AND KELLYANNE

Trump People’s Court – SNL

THERE ARE MORE BUT IT’S DOUBTFUL ANY OF YOU HAVE THE STOMACH TO MAKE IT THIS FAR.

‘I wasn’t brought up talking like that’: Maria Shriver’s thrown by classless Lena Dunham in awkward clip

ANOTHER LAUGH RIOT. CLASS MEETS A FAT LEFTIST PIG WITH A MOUTH LIKE A SEWER

“You saw a penis, right?” Dunham asked.

“Well, I saw more than that,” Shriver responded, appearing a bit stunned by the remark from the 30-year-old classless creator and star of the controversial series.

“You caught me there for a second. I’m not sure if you’re allowed to say that on television,” an embarrassed Shriver said.  “But you did!”

“I won’t be coming back!” Dunham joked, mockingly throwing her hands up. “Going out with a bang!”

“Going out with a bang,” Shriver repeated. “We’re just going out.”

“That’s the difference between generations,” Shriver told Dunham. “I wasn’t brought up talking like that.”

THEN THIS TRASH WONDERS WHY THEY LOST BIG TIME IN NOVEMBER. DECENT PEOPLE ARE SICK OF THEM.

Update: The Gosnell Movie

Later this year, producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinny (FrackNation) and director Nick Searcy (Justified) will bring the story of notorious Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell to the big screen.

Gosnell — who has been called America’s “most prolific serial killer” — operated what the 300-page grand jury report later called a “baby charnel house,” in which he regularly killed babies born alive at his clinic, which itself was staffed with inexperienced nurses and littered with blood-stained furniture and the remains of fetuses stored in basement freezers. Gosnell was later convicted of three counts of first-degree murder and hundreds of lesser charges, and in 2013 was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

But before the film comes out, McAleer and McElhinny will release Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer, through Regnery Publishing on January 24. The book details the investigation that ultimately brought Gosnell down, and also examines the mainstream media’s reluctance to cover the story due to its subject matter.

In this exclusive excerpt from the forthcoming book, McElhinney describe how she came to investigate Gosnell’s story and why it changed her thoughts about the practice of abortion forever.
