I did not watch the Golden Globes nor do I watch any of the silly awards shows. Why would I watch a bunch of rich, out-of-touch elitists congratulate themselves but pretend to care about the common person?
If I wanted to see that I’d watch Congress when it’s in session.
It’s hard to miss the buzz about Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech, well more like a front for an attack on President-Elect Donald Trump. I won’t waste my time commenting directly about her views because I don’t care what she thinks. And that’s the part most elitists miss. No one cares what they think except their sycophantic friends and impressionable millennials still trying to get out of their parent’s house.
How funny is a room full of coddled, privileged, millionaires who play pretend for a living whining they are victims? Everyone sees the ridiculousness of that vision except the elites in the room.
I wonder whether the idiots in Hollywood are that out of touch with reality or, much like their jobs, it’s simply an act.
Streep gave the media a pep talk and implored them to “safeguard the truth.” Why would it start defending the truth now? The media is not and has not been truthful since its inception. I’ll keep it simple and write in ways she can understand: watch Citizen Kane.
Streep’s inference is that a Trump presidency would be anti-press. It’s no secret there is no love lost between the media and Trump but has she looked at how President Obama has treated the media? Has she forgotten the Department of Justice under President Obama seized phone records of journalists critical of the administration? Is she not aware that same Justice Department deemed it criminal for reporters to talk to a whistleblower and report on the information?
The Democrats love to portray Trump and his “basket of deplorables” as racist and lament the damage he may do to race relations. Are you kidding me? Can you say Trayvon Martin? Henry Louis Gates? Michael Brown? In all these and similar cases President Obama’s actions and words stoked the fires of racism.
Obama’s grandmother is white and he called her a “typical white person” who has fears about black men during the 2008 campaign. Who exactly is damaging race relations? How ironic will it be if race relations actually improved under a Trump presidency? It can’t be much worse than it is now after eight years of what seems like a racist president.
Maybe Streep needs a refresher course on the time President Obama secretly used drones to kill Americans in foreign lands. Wasn’t it Hillary Clinton, her hero, who suggested a drone strike against Julian Assange?
Make no mistake, I’m sure Trump will do stupid things while in office. They all do and the press should report on everything he does but I doubt the media will be remotely fair in its coverage. And by fair, I do not mean agreeing with him or treating him with kid gloves. I mean objective reporting with no editorializing in the news article.
Trump is a thin-skinned bully so he’ll claim he’s being attacked regardless if it’s true or not. However, the media bias against him actually compels people to support him because we all see the bias.
It seems to me everything the elites accuse Trump of being and doing they do and are themselves.
