A street artist who goes by the name Sabo, out of an abundance of concern for the liberal super-genius talk host’s safety, has posted a sign at that corner to help out Kimmel the next time he’s driving there:
Hollywood star Robert De Niro took aim at the Trump administration’s stance on climate change, telling a packed audience in the Middle East that he was visiting from a “backward” country suffering from “temporary insanity.”
He said that in the country he’s describing, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency suggested last week that global warming may be a good thing for humanity.
“I am talking about my own country, the United States of America. We don’t’ like to say we are a ‘backward’ country so let’s just say we’re suffering from a case of temporary insanity,” he added.
De Niro received applause and laughs when he said the U.S. “will eventually cure itself by voting our dangerous leader” out of office. He spoke Sunday at Dubai’s World Government Summit.
Instead of seeking asylum in Dubai (or nearby Iran, or Saudi Arabia, or Egypt) from the “insanity” of America, De Niro instead will return to the U.S. for some reason. Go figure.
Hollywood came to the Rev. Al Thursday as embattled Sony exec Amy Pascal met privately with the black leader for 90 minutes in a bid to fix the fallout from the cyberhacking leak of embarrassing, racially charged emails.
Pascal agreed to let Sharpton have a say in how Sony makes motion pictures, in an effort to combat what he called “inflexible and immovable racial exclusion in Hollywood.”
“We have agreed to having a working group deal with the racial bias and lack of diversity in Hollywood,” said Sharpton.
Too many people are turning a willful blind eye to the fact that this is the Hollywood Left we’re talking about — the bunch of elite hypocrites that preaches to everybody else about racial tolerance. I’d be lying if I denied experiencing a bit of schadenfreude over these pious libs now having Al Sharpton telling them how to run their business.
As for the hack that the FBI says was the doing of N. Korea, the White House has promised a “proportional response.” How about sending them Al Sharpton as soon as he’s finished shaking down Sony?
The real crime in the Sony “hack” story is the hack itself, but some of the stuff revealed as a result is telling considering it’s coming from Hollywood bigwigs — the same crowd that preaches liberal “values” including racial sensitivity.
Sony Pictures Entertainment executives joked about US President Barack Obama’s race in a series of emails leaked following the recent hack on Sony, according to reports.
Amy Pascal, co-chair of Sony Pictures Entertainment, reportedly asked top producer Scott Rudin what she should ask Mr Obama at a November 2013 fundraising breakfast.
Mr Rudin wrote: “Would he like to finance some movies.” Ms Pascal replied: “I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked Django?” Mr Rudin responded: “12 Years,” and the pair named other films starring black actors, according to a report on BuzzFeed.
The outrage brigade probably won’t be demanding any resignations for an obvious reason:
Pascal is a major Democratic donor; she gave $5,000 to Obama’s re-election campaign and cut a $30,800 check to the Democratic National Committee, according to OpenSecrets.
The Dems will be so pissed off at Pascal’s emails that they’ll refuse to take her money and issue a refund immediately (pause for laughter).
This probably happens a lot more than ever gets reported:
All the same, two Oscar voters privately admitted that they didn’t see “12 Years a Slave,” thinking it would be upsetting. But they said they voted for it anyway because, given the film’s social relevance, they felt obligated to do so.
Hopping on a pop culture bandwagon just because everybody else was doing so in spite of personally knowing nothing about it? Why does that sound so familiar?
