Vogue editor-in-chief says it’s important to “take a stand” when deciding which female politicians to feature

First Lady Melania’s spokeswoman fired back: “To be on the cover of Vogue doesn’t define Mrs. Trump, she’s been there, done that long before she was First Lady.”

From The Independent: Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has said it’s important to “take a stand” when deciding which influential women in politics the magazine features on the cover.

Wintour was interviewed by CNN ahead of the Met Gala, which is scheduled to take place in less than a month’s time on Monday 6 May. During the interview, the Condé Nast artistic director was questioned over the women in politics who she chooses to profile in the magazine, having previously featured former first lady Michelle Obama and US senator Kamala Harris.

“If you’re talking about the first lady or senator Harris, obviously these are women that we feel are icons and inspiring to women from a global perspective,” Wintour said.

Wintour added that in the present political climate, she believes it’s important to “take a stand”, and that she doesn’t think you can “try and please everybody all the time”.

“You have to stand up for what you believe in, and you have to take a point of view,” the 69-year-old said stated.

Before Wintour learned how to “take a stand”

CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour pointed out that the American magazine has featured more women from the Democratic party than the Republican party. “We profile women in the magazine that we believe in the stand that they’re taking on issues. We support them in the fact that we feel that they are leaders,” Wintour said in response.

The Vogue editor-in-chief stated that the defeat of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 US presidential election made it even more apparent that more women are needed in leadership roles. In December 1998, Clinton became the first US first lady to be featured on the cover of Vogue, during her husband Bill Clinton’s tenure as president.

“I felt that the first lady at that time had behaved in a very brave way,” Wintour stated. “So we felt it was a time to support her and to stand up for women.”

Former first lady Obama was featured on the cover of Vogue on three occasions while she was in the White House. Wintour stated that, in her opinion, Obama “redefined” the role of the first lady, a position that she held from 2009 until 2017.”She made the White House a place for everyone.”

Boston Globe op/ed urges waiters to contaminate food of Trump officials

We are told a democracy can only work and get things done when political parties and opponents compromise because in a democracy, winners are only temporary victors until the next election. And so political opponents each gives up something, in order to gain something. It’s not all or nothing.

But in the (dis)United States of America today, Democrats and the Democrat Party have neither interest nor disposition to compromise. Even worse, they openly call for and inflict violence on those who disagree with them. Some examples:

  • Remember Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA), who was shot by a Democrat — Bernie Sanders supporter James T. Hodgkinson — on June 14 2017?
  • Last July, America’s premier newspaper, the New York Times, actually published an editorial calling Democrats to go to war and deploy mafia tactics against President Trump.
  • Americans, including an 81-year-old man, are assaulted for wearing MAGA hats.
  • Hollywood actors and rappers make open or veiled threats to assassinate President Trump.
  • Prominent Democrats, like Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder, openly call for violence.
  • Congressman Eric Swallwell (D-CA) threatens to “nuke” us if we resist gun-confiscation.

The latest is a Boston Globe op/ed, penned by former waiter Luke O’Neil, calling on waiters to poison (“tamper with”) the food served to Trump administration officials.

On Wednesday, April 10, 2019, the Boston Globe published the op/ed by Luke O’Neil — a one-time waiter who free-lances for the Guardian, The New York Times, New York magazine, and other publications.

Soon after the op/ed was published, Boston Globe scrubbed the op/ed’s first sentence, “One of the biggest regrets of my life is not pissing in Bill Kristol’s salmon,” and appended a prominent editor’s note saying “A version of this column as originally published did not meet Globe standards and has been changed. The Globe regrets the previous tone of the piece.” A day later, the Globe removed the op/ed entirely from its website, with the excuse that “the column did not receive sufficient editorial oversight.” (Fox News)

Incredibly, after spending two hours scouring the web, I cannot find any website, even AltMedia ones, that re-published the entirety of O’Neil’s poison-food op/ed, not even Internet archives. I could find only these excerpts of the op/ed:

Keep Kirstjen Nielsen unemployed and eating Grubhub over her kitchen sink

By Luke O’Neil • April 10, 2019

One of the biggest regrets of my life is not pissing in Bill Kristol’s salmon. I was waiting on the disgraced neoconservative pundit and chief Iraq War cheerleader about 10 years ago at a restaurant in Cambridge and to my eternal dismay, some combination of professionalism and pusillanimity prevented me from appropriately seasoning his entree. A ramekin of blood on the side might have been the better option, come to think of it. He always did seem really thirsty for the stuff.
I was reminded of that episode this week when Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, the purportedly reluctant triggerman for Donald Trump’s inhumane policies of ethnic cleansing, announced she would be stepping down from her post at the president’s request. The news comes a little over a year since she took the job, and about nine months since she was infamously shame-marched out of a restaurant — a Mexican one of all things — in Washington, D.C., by a group of protestors just as the news of our official policy of separating families at the southern border was first being reported on. What a delight it was to see.
Around the same time, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and others in the administration or associated with Trump — such as Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Mitch McConnell, and white nationalist and dirty coward from the zombie movie who gets everyone else killed Stephen Miller . . . . .

Living in Boston, we’re no strangers to visitors from any administration, whether they’ve been given a lecture role at a school like Harvard — which doesn’t seem to have any compunctions about welcoming literal comic book-style villains to campus — or of any of a number of other prestigious tech or academic institutions in the area. Invariably the bad guys, like the rest of us, will have to eat. And when they show up in our restaurants, you have my permission, as an official member of the mainstream media, to tell them where to go and what they can do with themselves when they arrive there, but, you know, said in a more specific and traditional Boston colloquialism.

As for the waiters out there, I’m not saying you should tamper with anyone’s food, as that could get you into trouble. You might lose your serving job. But you’d be serving America. And you won’t have any regrets years later.

Some years ago, I reluctantly came to the conclusion that the differences between Conservatives and the Left — in fundamental values, world views and goals — are so divergent, they are irreconcilable.

How can conservatives compromise with people like Luke O’Neil?

As for defeating the Left in the ballot box, there have been so many instances of Democrat voter fraud that I no longer trust the results of elections.

So what are we to do?

Perpetual victimhood: Lena Dunham gets a tattoo that says, “sick”

Liberals are miserable creatures. They are self-loathing and forever a victim of something.

So I was not surprised to see on libtard Lena Dunham’s Instagram that she got a new tattoo that says, “sick.”

FYI: Dunham suffers from endometriosis, of which the main symptoms are pelvic pain and infertility. It is not curable yet is treatable.

From her Instagram post:

“sometimes the thing you’re most scared of being called is the best thing you can call yourself. thank you @havenstudiobk for labeling me… and to my sisters in this dizzying but starry slog- i am lasso’d to you!”

Hey, her body, her choice.

Most people would focus on the positive aspects of life. Maybe one who is happy would choose to get a tattoo that says “enjoy life” or “carpe diem.”

But I’m guessing that Dunham isn’t too happy. After all, she already displays a tattoo that seeks some type of approval as it says, “love me.”

Hollyweird actress Michelle Williams was “paralyzed” after learning her co-star was paid more than her

Michelle’s costar was Mark Wahlberg, who has a much, much bigger box-office audience draw than she will ever have. I also read somewhere (can’t remember where) that the studio had to pay bigger bucks for Mark (again, a bigger audience draw) because he had scheduling conflicts. If they wanted him, they had to pay.

FYI: The complaining Hollyweird starlet is worth $16 MILLION.

Pro-tip Michelle: Get a better agent who can sell your worth.

From People Magazine: Michelle Williams is opening up the pay disparity she experienced while working with Mark Wahlberg on All the Money in the World.

The four-time Oscar nominee spoke on Capitol Hill Tuesday while advocating for House Democratic legislation that would close the gender pay gap.

Williams joined Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other members of the Democratic Women’s Caucus to mark Equal Pay Day as she recounted discovering Wahlberg, 47, had made $1.5 million compared to her paycheck of less than $1,000 for reshoots on the Ridley Scott film.

“It’s the kind of story I would normally resist: the morality tale with a happy ending, or rather a happy beginning because that’s really why I’m here,” Williams said. “There won’t be satisfaction for me until I can exhaust my efforts ensuring that all women experience the elevation of their self-worth and its connection to the elevation of their market worth.”

Alyssa Milano and 50 Hollyweirdos sign letter threatening to boycott Georgia for prolife ‘heartbeat’ bill

There is a pro-life bill in Georgia’s state legislature, HB 481: Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act, aka fetal heartbeat bill, which recognizes unborn children as “natural persons” and that the “full value of a child begins when a heartbeat exists” — typically at six weeks’ gestation.

The source of the GIF is this YouTube video.

Accordingly, the bill requires physicians performing abortions to determine the existence of a detectable human heartbeat before performing an abortion. “No abortion is authorized or shall be performed if an unborn child has been determined in accordance with Code Section 31-9B-2 to have a detectable human heartbeat”.

The bill defines a detectable human heartbeat as “embryonic or fetal cardiac activity or the steady and repetitive rhythmic contraction of the heart within the gestational sac.” HB 481 furthermore states that “unless otherwise provided by law, any natural person, including an unborn child with a detectable human heartbeat, shall be included in population based determinations.”

The bill allows for some exceptions to the prohibition against aborting an unborn child with a detectable human heartbeat:

  1. “when a physician determines in reasonable medical judgment, that a medical emergency exists”.
  2. when “the probable gestational age of the unborn child is 20 weeks or less and the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest in which an official police report has been filed alleging the offense of rape or incest.”
  3. If the physician determines the “pregnancy is medically futile.”

On March 22, 2019, by a vote of 34-18, the Georgia Senate passed HB 481. The bill now goes to Georgia’s House of Representatives for agreement before making its way to the desk of Governor Brian Kemp, a Republican, who had promised his support on the campaign trail and has reiterated his position since. With his approval, Georgia will join Kentucky and Mississippi in recently approving such legislation. Iowa did so last year. A heartbeat bill in Tennessee has passed the House of Representatives. (Christian Index)

Georgia’s fetal heartbeat bill so incensed blood-thirsty Hollyweirdos that about 50 of them signed a letter threatening to boycott the state if Governor Kemp signs the bill into law.

The letter was written by actress Alyssa Milano, 46, the has-been, rode-hard actress who wore a cleavage-bearing low-cut blouse to SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing last October.

The letter was sent to Governor Kemp and Georgia House Speaker David Ralston (R), yesterday, March 28. The letter says:

As actors, our work often brings us to Georgia…. We’ve been glad to bring millions of dollars in revenue to support Georgia’s schools, parks and communities.

But we cannot in good conscience continue to recommend our industry remain in Georgia if H.B. 481 becomes law.

This dangerous and deeply-flawed bill…would…force many women to undergo unregulated, hidden procedures at great risk to their health.

We can’t imagine being elected officials who had to say to their constituents, “I enacted a law that was so evil, it chased billions of dollars out of our state’s economy.” It’s not the most effective campaign slogan, but rest assured we’ll make it yours should it come to pass….

We want to stay in Georgia…. But we will…do everything in our power to move our industry to a safer state for women if H.B. 481 becomes law.

According to Deadline and Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the actors who signed the letter  include Uzo Aduba (who’s dat?), Christina Applegate, Essence Atkins (who’s dat?), Alec Baldwin, Don Cheadle, David Cross, Mia Farrow, Colin Hanks, Rosie O’Donnell, Patton Oswalt, Sean Penn, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, Ben Stiller, Amber Tamblyn, Gabrielle Union, and Bradley Whitford.

No justice: Chicago prosecutors drop all charges against fake hate-crime actor Jussie Smollett

On February 21, 2019, actor Jussie Smollett, 36, turned himself in to Chicago police after he was charged with a felony for lying to police when he claimed to be the victim of a racist and homophobic attack.

Smollett, best known for the Fox TV show Empire, who is both black and “gay”, had told police that on January 29, at around 1:30 a.m., he was accosted by two men in downtown Chicago who shouted racist and homophobic slurs, beat him up, poured bleach on him, wrapped a noose around his neck, and warned him that “This is MAGA country!”– a reference to President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.

But Smollett’s story completely fell apart: Not only had he purchased the “lyncing” rope wrapped around his neck, Smollett had paid $3500 to two Nigerian brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, who are also black, to stage the fake racist-homophobic attack on him. (See my post “Fake Hate Crime: Hollyweirdo Jussie Smollett arrested“)

On the day of his arrest, at a press conference, Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson fumed with righteous indigation that as a black man who’s grown up in Chicago, he’s “offended” and “angry” with Smollett taking advantage of the pain and anger and racism to promote his acting career.

We were told Smollett could face probation or up to three years in prison if convicted. But the news today is that Chicago prosecutors have dropped all charges — and the fingerprints of the Obamas and George Soros are all over this stunning reversal.

Page Six reports:

The criminal case against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett took a stunning turn Tuesday when Chicago prosecutors abruptly dropped all of the charges — after slapping him with 16 felony counts for allegedly staging a hate crime attack.

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office only offered a vague explanation why it was allowing Smollett to skate in the case following a surprise, five-minute court appearance in which Judge Steven Watkins sealed the case file.

“After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollet’s volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case,” the office said.

The move comes just a week after Chicago’s police union demanded a federal probe into the county’s top prosecutor for allegedly interfering in the case after being contacted by Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff.

The Fraternal Order of Police, which represents the department’s rank-and-file, sent a letter asking the Department of Justice to probe Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx.

Foxx tried to convince Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to turn Smollett’s case over to the FBI — after Tina Tchen, the former senior Obama aide, reached out to her, saying the “Empire” star’s family had “concerns.”

Foxx had recused herself from the case in February because she had reached out to one of Smollett’s relatives and acted as a go-between with the cops.

All charges against Smollett will be wiped clean. His two attorneys said: “The state dismissed the charges. We believe it was the correct result.… We are very anxious for Jussie to get on with his life.”

First Assistant State’s Attorney Joseph Magats (rhymes with “maggots”) — who took over the case after Foxx recused herself — said his office considered the incident a “nonviolent crime” and that Smollett has no felony criminal background. Magats insisted that dropping the charges does not mean Smollett was, in fact, the victim of a crime. He said: “Absolutely not. We stand behind the CPD investigation done in this case, we stand behind the approval of charges in this case. They did a fantastic job. The fact there was an alternative disposition in this case is not and should not be viewed as some kind of admission there was something wrong with the case, or something wrong with the investigation that the Chicago police did.”

Blah, blah, blah.

But Smollett’s attorneys, Holmes and Glandian, are sticking to Smollett’s fake story and portraying him as the real victim. They said:

“Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgment.

Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result.”

For their part, Smollett’s family shamelessly proclaims Jussie’s innocence. They said:

“Our son and brother is an innocent man whose name and character has been unjustly smeared. Jussie is a son, a brother, a partner, a champion for human rights, and a genuine soul who would never be capable of what he was falsely accused of. He was the victim of an assault and then falsely blamed for his own attack. This morning truth has prevailed and he has been vindicated. All charges have been dismissed and his record expunged.”

There is no longer justice in America. The America I thought I once knew is gone and may be never was.

Update: Just after I published this post, it came to my attention that George Soros had donated $408,000 in 2016 to a super PAC that supported Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, whose office prosecuted — and dropped — the Jussie Smollett case. (Breitbart)

A real conspiracy: Wealthy Americans conspire with coaches, university & college entrance test administrators to rig admissions into elite universities

A friend, R., admonished and ordered me not to send him any posts on Sandy Hook after I sent him my January 8, 2019 post, “More evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School had moved to Monroe, CT before the shooting massacre,” with documentary evidence from Wolfgang Halbig showing Sandy Hook Elementary School had moved to Chalk Hill Middle School in nearby Monroe, Connecticut, months before the December 14, 2012 mass shooting.

Instead of disputing my post with evidence or reasoning, R. called me an agent of Satan for trafficking in conspiracy theories, which he dismisses because he doesn’t believe in conspiracies and because so many conspiracy theories implicate Jews.

An aside: R., who was adopted as an infant by a childless German immigrant couple, recently learnt from a DNA-testing company that he is part Jewish, never mind the fact that we have good evidence that the results of these commercial DNA ancestry tests are unreliable. (See “DNA ancestry companies fake African ancestry for white people” and “Twins get some ‘mystifying’ results when they put 5 DNA ancestry kits to the test“.) R. actually said in an email before we ceased all communication, that he believes it’s his Jewish ancestry that accounts for why he’s so smart and got a Ph.D., whereas his (adopted) parents never went to college. Curiously, his dumb but hardworking and frugal parents managed to accumulate considerable financial assets from owning and operating a small business.

This post is about a very real conspiracy — by very wealthy Americans conspiring to rig college admissions so that their children get into élite universities, not on their own merits, but via bribes, fake college entrance test scores and fake athleticism. The bribe payments, in tens of thousands and millions of dollars per parent, were funneled into a fake non-profit so that the parents could claim them as charitable donations on their tax returns. All of which means this college admissions scam is also a scam perpetrated on U.S. tax payers.

To top it off, the ring leader of this very real conspiracy, William Singer, is Jewish.

Singer had already pleaded guilty and is helping the FBI gather incriminating evidence against his co-conspirators.

On Tuesday, March 12, 2019, 50 wealthy Americans — including Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, were charged in the largest college cheating “conspiracy” ever prosecuted by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Below is the DOJ press release:

Dozens of individuals involved in a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits were arrested by federal agents in multiple states this morning and charged in federal court in Boston. Athletic coaches from Yale, Stanford, USC, Wake Forest and Georgetown, among others, are implicated, as well as parents and exam administrators.

William “Rick” Singer, 58, of Newport Beach, Calif., was charged with racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Singer owned and operated the Edge College & Career Network LLC (“The Key”) – a for-profit college counseling and preparation business – and served as the CEO of the Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF) – a non-profit corporation that he established as a purported charity.

Between approximately 2011 and February 2019, Singer allegedly conspired with dozens of parents, athletic coaches, a university athletics administrator, and others, to use bribery and other forms of fraud to secure the admission of students to colleges and universities including Yale University, Georgetown University, Stanford University, the University of Southern California, and Wake Forest University, among others. Also charged for their involvement in the scheme are 33 parents and 13 coaches and associates of Singer’s businesses, including two SAT and ACT test administrators.

Also charged is John Vandemoer, the head sailing coach at Stanford University, Rudolph “Rudy” Meredith, the former head soccer coach at Yale University, and Mark Riddell, a counselor at a private school in Bradenton, Fla.

The DOJ press release then describes three groups of conspiracies:

(1) College Entrance Exam Cheating Conspiracy:

  • Singer instructed his clients to ask for extended time for their children on the SAT and ACT college entrance exams, by claiming the children have learning disabilities in order to obtain the required medical documentation.
  • Once the extended time was granted, the parents asked that the location of the exams be changed to one of two test centers: a public high school in Houston, Texas, or a private college preparatory school in West Hollywood, Calif.
  • At those test centers, Singer had established relationships with test administrators Niki Williams and Igor Dvorskiy, respectively, who accepted bribes of as much as $10,000 per test to facilitate the cheating scheme by having a third individual, typically Mark Riddell, to take the exams in place of the students, to give the students the correct answers during the exams, or to correct the students’ answers after they completed the exams.
  • Singer typically paid Ridell $10,000 for each student’s test.
  • The parents paid Singer between $15,000 and $75,000 per test, with the payments structured as purported donations to Singer’s tax-exempt Key Worldwide Foundation charity.

(2) College Recruitment Conspiracy:

  • Parents paid Singer, under the guise of charitable donations to his KWF non-profit, approximately $25 million to bribe coaches and university administrators to designate their children as purported athletic recruits, thereby facilitating the children’s’ admission to those universities.
  •  Singer directed employees of The Key and the KWF non-profit to create falsified athletic “profiles” for these children — with fake honors, fake elite teams that they purportedly played on, and staged photos of the children engaged in athletic activity, such as using a rowing machine or purportedly playing water polo.
  • The fake athletic profiles were then submitted to the universities in support of the students’ applications.

(3) Tax Fraud Conspiracy:

  • Beginning around 2013, Singer had parents disguise bribe payments as charitable contributions to his tax-exempt non-profit Key Worldwide Foundaton (KWF), thereby enabling the clients to deduct the bribes from their federal income taxes.
  • KWF employee Steven Masera or another employee then mailed letters from the KWF to the parentss expressing thanks for their purported charitable contributions. The letter stated: “Your generosity will allow us to move forward with our plans to provide educational and self-enrichment programs to disadvantaged youth,” and falsely indicated that “no good or services were exchanged” for the donations. The parents then filed personal tax returns that falsely reported the payment to the KWF as charitable donations.

Below are the 50 individuals charged in the college admissions conspiracy:

  1. William Rick Singer, 58, of Newport Beach, Calif., owner of the Edge College & Career Network and CEO of the Key Worldwide Foundation, was charged in an Information with racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud the United States, and obstruction of justice.  He is scheduled to plead guilty in Boston before U.S. District Court Judge Rya W.

Separated at birth: Parkland’s David Hogg (l) and Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza (r)

Star Political reports that the admission into Harvard University of David Hogg, a prominent anti-gun activist who became famous as a “survivor” of the Parkland school shooting on February 14, 2018, is now being questioned because:

  • The average SAT score of Harvard’s own admission statistics is 250 points higher than Hogg’s 1270 SAT score. According to ThoughtCo, although a combined SAT score of roughly 1400 will make you competitive at nearly any U.S. college or university, Harvard Univerisity is more demanding, being an exceptionally selective school with an acceptance rate of just 5% in 2017, the lowest rate among all U.S. universities. A 1400 SAT score is on the lower end of Harvard’s accepted student range.
  • Hogg was rejected by several lower-level universities compared to Harvard, including four University of California campuses where he had submitted applications — UCLA, UCSD, UCSB and UC Irvine.

Hogg being a “survivor” of the Parkland school shooting should also be questioned because, according to his own words, he was at home and got on his bike when he heard about the shooting. See “Parkland anomalies: David Hogg was at home during school shooting; interviewed girl before shooting”.

Actor Samuel L. Jackson, with $220M net worth, calls President Trump and fans who disapprove of him ‘motherf—ers’

If you don’t already know actor Samuel L. Jackson is a rabid leftist and anti-Trumper, you do now.

In a fawning interview with Esquire magazine‘s Carvell Wallace, March 12, 2019, Samuel L. Jackson went into an 0bscenities-filled tirade condemning President Trump for “ruining the planet,” and calls Republicans “ass-holes” and fans who disapprove of his anti-Trumpism “motherf*ckers”.

Below are verbatim quotes by Jackson from the interview:

“This motherf*cker [President Trump] is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy sh*t. And the people think that’s okay. It’s not f*cking okay. And if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit. And I wouldn’t give a f*ck if I was a garbageman and I had a Twitter account; I’d tweet that sh*t out. I’m not thinking about who I am and what my job is when I do that sh*t.”

Asked whether he worries about antagonizing fans, Jackson said:

“I know how many motherf*ckers hate me. ‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ F*ck I care? If you never went to another movie I did in my life, I’m not going to lose any money. I already cashed that check. F*ck you. Burn up my videotapes. I don’t give a f*ck. ‘You’re an actor. Stick to acting.’ ‘No, motherf*cker. I’m a human being that feels a certain way.’ And some of this sh*t does affect me, because if we don’t have health care, sh*t, and my relatives get sick, they’re going to call my rich ass. I want them to have health care. I want them to be able to take care of themselves.”

Under President Trump, black unemployment rates have fallen to historic lows, but Jackson idolizes Obama and calls Trump a “motherf*cker”.

Jackson is one of the Hollyweirdos who “threatened” to leave the United States if Donald Trump was elected President. But like the others, his “threat” was all empty words.

Samuel L. Jackson has a net worth of $220 million. He says he’s loaded and doesn’t care whether you watch his movies or not.

So why are you still watching him?
