I know, I know, I did say I didn’t want to be bothered by election rhetoric any longer, but I just can’t help myself.
Last week, the world saw the grandeur of stupidity at the Golden Globes, when the elite pontificated about the mean old bad President-elect Donald Trump. Oh how the entitled non-deplorables cheered. The queen of entertainment thumped her scepter and declared Hollywood’s displeasure at the outcome of the election.
This week, the same highly unintelligent, over-privileged, loquacious, Hollywood elite are calling for a boycott of the inauguration:
“Shut off all the TVs. Don’t give it any airtime,” they say. “See Donald, we will win. We will destroy you…”
Blah, blah, blah.
You know, I didn’t realize how stupid these celebrities really are until now, but stupid is as stupid does, and these characters give new meaning to stupid.
Do they not realize that, whether they like it or not, Donald Trump is everyone’s president, and if he fails at the job, we all fail?
That means no more money for high-priced celebrities, no more high-priced movie deals, no more extravagant gala events to spout their propaganda, no more fancy houses with big walls to keep out the common folk, no more TV appearances, no more hefty advertising endorsements, no more fans groveling at their feet, no more fawning entourage to feed their egos, no more money to stoke their star-making machinery.
So the speechifying — enough is enough, already. Stand behind him and the office he occupies. Make this county work, not by opening your mouths at inappropriate moments, but by wishing the president good luck, because if he does good, we all do good. If he fails, it’s a whole lot more than a bad review in the Hollywood Reporter and on to the next blockbuster.
Not for nuthin™ Hollywood, take your heads out of your rears. Face it — your candidate lost. Either come together to back the president and wish him a very successful term or get out. Because your negativity is ruining it for the rest of us deplorables — you know the ones that want to go to the movies and buy the stuff you endorse so you can remain happy and safe behind your gilded walls. Us, the ones that want the country to work for all — not just for some.
On a happy note, I got to binge-watch the re-tooled “One Day at a Time” on Netflix, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. The incredibly talented Rita Morena is in it and proves that age is no deterrent. Thanks Netflix, you made paying a monthly fee worth it.
