The libtard butt hurt is still strong: Hollyweird “power players” whine about Trump


These people take themselves way too seriously, as if they are relevant or something.

From Hollywood Reporter: It’s no secret that Hollywood’s not a fan of Donald Trump.

From outspoken condemnations such as Meryl Streep’s infamous Golden Globes speech — in which she criticized Trump’s remarks about a disabled reporter during the 2016 campaign — to director Judd Apatow’s consistent lambasting tweets, criticisms of the president are widespread among the leaders of the entertainment industry.

When asked how his presidency has affected their work and life, those who made the cut for the THR 100 — The Hollywood Reporter’s second annual ranking of the most powerful people in entertainment — had a variety of responses.

Some stayed mum, including Disney CEO Bob Iger (No. 1 on the THR 100), though he notably resigned from Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum June 1 in the wake of Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord signed by nearly every other country. Fox TV Group chairman and co-CEO Dana Walden (No. 16) also skirted the subject of Trump. “I’m not talking about him right now,” she said. “Too depressing.”

Others were much more forthcoming, such as Feud and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy (No. 28). “At least the first hour of every day is dedicated to talking about the writers’ and staffers’ anxieties about the world, vis a vis the Trump administration, and then how are we going to put those anxieties into art,” said the four-time Emmy winner of the atmosphere in his writers room. “That’s new.”

FX Networks CEO John Landgraf (No. 24) didn’t pull any punches as he noted the stress of the last several months. “Trump has made me way more anxious, almost every day. It’s not about politics,” Landgraf said. “It’s about integrity. Judging by his behavior, he is completely amoral, does not believe in the democratic separation of powers enshrined in our Constitution, and recognizes no truth beyond himself — beyond what he needs to be the truth for his own emotional comfort in any given moment. It is scary to me that I have fellow citizens who still think he should be our president.

Some acknowledged the president’s role in revitalizing their work — and deepening its meaning. “Trump is good for the business of escapism,” said Get Out director Jordan Peele (No. 93), while Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins (No. 94) shared a similar, yet slightly more earnest, sentiment: “I think he has put the messages and discussions that I want to have more in focus and pertinent than ever.”

Actor/producer Tyler Perry (No. 67) says Trump “reinvigorated my resolve to bring light and laughter and healing to this world,” while Selma and 13th director Ava DuVernay (No. 70) admitted the president has “devastated me in many ways, but each of those ways has made me more determined than before.” Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer (No. 95) has been similarly influenced. “I make a lot of Horatio Alger underdog stories,” said the Imagine Entertainment partner. “So his presence in the White House affects how I do that.”

Nancy Dubuc (No. 44), president and CEO of A+E Networks, took a more measured view: “Our allegiance is to our audience,” she said, adding, “We’re careful to listen and represent diverse points of view and bring forward tough issues through the power of storytelling, when warranted.”

For recently appointed Sony Pictures and Entertainment CEO and chairman Tony Vinciquerra (No. 26), the controversy around Trump has had a positive impact. “Political discourse is at an all-time high everywhere I look,” he said. “Given voter apathy, as evidenced by L.A.’s recent 11 percent mayoral voter turnout, hopefully this political discourse will increase citizen engagement.”

Kevin Beggs (No. 91), chairman of Lionsgate TV Group, echoed Vinciquerra’s respect for open political discourse and public engagement. “What is unfolding in the White House is a powerful reminder that politics matter,” Beggs said. “Complacency is the enemy of democracy and it feels like, after decades of relative disinterest or disgust with the political process, people across the socioeconomic spectrum are paying attention. The surge in news readership and viewership is truly inspiring.”

A few THR 100 honorees had a lighter take on Trump, including NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt (No. 27). “We have one less reality show on our schedule,” the studio exec said, referencing the president’s not-so-distant past as Apprentice host. And Greenblatt wasn’t the only one to bring up the president’s history as a star of the small screen. “I finally watch reality TV full-time when I get home: the news,” said Supergirl and Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti (No. 52).

UTA CEO and managing director Jeremy Zimmer (No. 33) admits that Trump has bolstered his reputation at home. Quipped the top agent, “He has made my kids think that I am highly moral and incredibly smart.”

  1. What narcissistic, whiny drama queens. I don’t recall Conservatives over-eating and getting fat, having indigestion/heartburn and sleepless nights in the 8 very long years of Obama.

  2. Stop touting the party line. They don’t give a chit about you.
    Tillerson today reiterated the Deep State line that there is no long-term future for Assad or his family in Syria. He also appointed Kurt Volker of the CIA and John McCain institute (all on wiki) to head US office in Ukraine and said Russia caused the crisis when it invaded Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. Oh, and Pruitt reversed 47 years of EPA regulations so the US can export oil to Ukraine and Poland. This is horrible.


  3. This doesn’t surprise me, especially when you realize that mostly all of the Hollywood celebs are mind controlled, and they don’t even realize it. Satan truly has his grimy paws in every facet of this world, and it’s disguised as Hollywood, or big government, or GMO’s, Rockefellers, etc. Brice Taylor’s book tells it like it is. It makes sense as I never ever thought Bob Dope was ever funny. And, Kissinger was always behind the scenes, he’s more like a cyborg than a human being. And, it explains why some of these things such as chemtrails and the pilots that fly or use drone technology don’t ‘talk’ about it.
    It’s the perfect ‘crime’!

  7. And yet, one of the loudest and biggest mouths in Hollywood against President Trump, George Clooney, just announced he was moving his family back to the US because he no longer felt his family was safe in the UK or at his beautiful estate on Lake Como in Italy, since the invaders are camping out just down the street from them.
    So, for “safety’s sake” he is running back to be under the umbrella of protection from the President of the United States. Funny how that works.
    Just last week Bill “open borders” Gates announced that Europe should slow down the immigration. He must have realized all his European homes and interests are now in considerable danger. Funny how that works also.
    Now, we just sit back and wait for the Hollywood bozos to realize that their long desired open borders and cheap labor is putting them into danger and their great big fences and paltry guards will not protect them. They will be screaming bloody murder for protection. Pop the corn, and sit back and watch. Funny how that works too.

  9. Dear THR 100 Members:
    You need to get over your resentment of President Trump and delusions of importance. Conservative American patriots truly suffered during 8 years of Obama. We are done with complaints from overpaid and untalented children who throw tantrums. Just suck it up!
