Hollywood Has-Beens Perpetuate Unpatriotic Sentiments to Derail Trump Train

And so it goes. Anti-Trump and unpatriotic naysayers who happen to have struck pay-dirt in the United States continue their banal boister.

Many spoke out against the nomination culminating in the Donald J. Trump presidency. “I’ll leave the country,” they said. “I’ve had thoughts about blowing up the White House,” another delusional simpleton claimed on live TV while federal agents, DC Metro police, and US Capitol cops roved the protest streets. That particular cigar-chomping smarmy “star” offered less of a twinkle and far more peppery vitriol.

“Blowing up the White House” statements plus what is in her Twitter account equals Madonna hypocrisy:

Her solitary biblical name reference may be Madonna…but her hate-filled presence is far from praiseworthy.

Lately, Chelsea Handler is a chronic commentator in political affairs across the US. She, too, was one of the more boisterous celebrities kicking up her heels along with other late-night talk show hosts Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Myers, and Jimmy Fallon…to name a few throwing stones under cover of night.

And they are still whining like elementary-age children whose recess was cut short by a wake-up call similar to a prescribed fire drill.

Samuel L. Jackson is perhaps one of the more vocal “celebs” denouncing the Trump administration. Mr. Jackson rails against President Trump while glaringly casting shade over all things Trump. Suddenly, I’m thinking of a “Felicia” salutation. Here is a sampling of Mr. Jackson’s clearly deep-seated disdain for President Trump, including borrowing the disrespectful moniker coined by crazed North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un:

Today, I read that D-lister Kathy Griffin is now rescinding her apology to President Trump after publishing a skit of herself holding an effigy of Mr. Trump’s decapitated headโ€”an act some filed under “Only in America!” Yet, that is an ISIS-type icon through and through, and Ms. Griffin went full-bore terrorist for attention. Sugar-dosed daycare-level children have better sense and decorum.

As I recall, like a submarine made of toilet paper, Ms. Griffin’s “celeb” feat took a nose dive. One unappealing clump of poor taste, at the very least. Sustaining backlash, she decried her “poor judgment.” She woo-wooed for a spell. She heard from President Trump supporters. I reckon she viewed her checkbook and fixated on what remained in the plus column. Ultimately, she confessed to ill behavior. Until today, when her passive-aggressive persona swung like an errant pendulum.

Another, no, actually many more so-called “celebrities” jumped aboard that bandwagon of theย unpatriotic anti-Trump train, with unmistakably ugly sentiments, most also “threatening” to flee the country. Enterprising professional bag-packers and swift-footed bellhops can make a mint off of the celebs’ tiny monkey show routine, if only they followed through with their threats of fleeing our nation.

Speaking of a show, no matter how you view her, the whoop-de-doo from Whoopi Goldberg was incredulous albeit (ahem) modified. Even though photoshopped by an unidentified digi-talent who craftily altered her original silkscreen shirt design, Ms. Goldberg was at least honest about her anti-Trump discord while disclaiming the ultra-graphic depiction of President Trump’s self-inflicted demise. Here is a before/after illustration:

The original version is drastically different and was propped at the 2017 Women’s March in Washington, D.C. alongside other pink pussyhat-wearing folks like bomb-threatening Madonna. Intriguingly, pop culture morphed into nation abandonment because of policy and/or personality disagreements. Either way, it projects more of a petty versus pretty personality. Speaking of personality, George Clooney is still here too:

Rosie O’Donnell remains in America also. I couldn’t resist posting a two-for-one meme pertaining to our discussion:

Frankly, the list of country absconders is chunky. I, for one, sized up extra living space and a reduction in Hollywood ego. Yay, self-correcting progress! Now, please honor your word.

Although I’m unsure of any relations to outwardly anti-Trump US Senator Chuck Schumer (D – NY), comedienne Amy Schumer jumped on the I’m-leaving-the-country bandwagon too…but she walked it back, saying:

Yep, one big joke. Despite threats to depart, they are all still here. They are all continuing to rake in millions from whatever “productions” sign them. And they are still whining like elementary-age children whose recess was cut short by a wake-up call similar to a prescribed fire drill. Besides the commander-in-chief, someone’s gotta keep them honest, like this Twitter account:

Enter President Donald J. Trump, the same man whose namesake Donald J. Trump State Park has been allowed to deteriorate …while blaming him for their inaction. As if a donation by anyone makes them lifetime-responsible, even after the real estate deed for 436 acres of property is graciously gifted more than a decade ago. That is as deplorable as all these hollow-worded “celebrities” denouncing President Trump while renouncing the soil upon which their riches were made.

Since they all possess the economic means, I’m fairly certain there exists a place for these celeb-types to go and live the way they choose. I wonder if NASA discovered any new planets lately.

Since they all possess the economic means, I’m fairly certain there exists a place for these celeb-types to go and live the way they choose. Among their collective wealth, I am fairly certain a few jumbo jets exist by which any/all could be carted beyond American borders. I wonder if NASA discovered any new planets lately. Curious as to how Elon Musk’s space travel venture SpaceX is shaping up, too.

Lord knows there is a ton of backwards behavior emanating from Hollywood lately. Like most cops, I am not easily jarred by ridiculous behavior, especially after being fed diatribe on the daily. It is the drone followed by inaction that repels me. Leaving is a resolution in domestic violence horrors, not so much for he-is-not-doing-it-my-way repugnance whereby choices to effect change exist. Doing something among the collective may have a bearing on my existence while leaving the fold has no pertinence for me whatsoever (except saving me from throwing my modest means at the box office).

There is ample backwards behavior in Hollywood lately, and it is not only sexual depravity and predatory practices either. Anti-Trump celebrities using their notoriety to spread hate is antithetical to popular vote. ( Credit: Wikimedia Commons)

As President Trump maintains the swamp-drain project, let us also strongly consider sanitizing the basin when it is empty of muck, slime, and useless residue. A clean slate is always an optimal substrate for positive growth.

If one really harbors traits of perfectionism, please put your money where your mouth is and throw your hat in the political ring. Many American loyalists wish to see your version of running a nation…while they witness from fertile American soil.

The president a pariah? Oh, the horror of delusional attributes fanned by enormous egos childishly bouncing on troves of US currency. Everyone is free to leave. Spare us the Broadway theatrics, especially if departing is somehow your only resolution. In all things in life, zero progress equals zero dividends. To merely rebuke the leadership of the nation in which one freely prospers is disingenuous and counterintuitive. Step up or step away.
