Same ol’ shtick: Michael Moore disses Trump, Hillary Clinton in new broadway show

response to Michael Moore

Must suck to be so bitter that your whole career revolves around criticism of a country and its policies that has made you filthy rich. Ain’t America grand!

From MSN: Michael Moore has Trump on the brain, and the Oscar-winning documentarian and liberal scourge unleashed his animus on the new president on Friday in the first public performance of his one-man Broadway debut, “The Terms of My Surrender.”

“I refuse to live in a country where Donald Trump is the president — and I’m not leaving,” Moore said near the end of his two-hour plus show, which was part autobiography, part counseling session to like-minded urban liberals and part political rally and call to action.

At one point, Moore teased a run for president in 2020, with a typically satirical edge. “I really will shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue,” Moore said, before adding in reference to Trump’s efforts to avoid military service in Vietnam, “He got five deferments because he wouldn’t shoot anyone.”

He offered campaign pledges that mixed the silly (“free HBO for all”) with the edgy (“If elected, there will be no low-flow showerheads; I don’t want to feel like I’m being peed on by a 12-year-old in the presidential suite of the Moscow Hilton”).

He offered praise for Sen. John McCain’s return to Washington after brain surgery and voting to block the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare. “Give the other Republican senators that surgery!” he quipped.

Moore did not spare Democrats — and Hillary Clinton in particular — from his jabs. “We have to admit that Trump outsmarted us,” Moore said. “He was crazy enough to know where the state of Wisconsin is — and to go there.”

He even made a joke suggesting the former Secretary of State was a lesbian — which he quickly tried to re-contextualize. He noted that a man arrested for attempting to blow up Moore’s Michigan home had kept a diary with a kill list that started with Moore and included Janet Reno, Rosie O’Donnell and Hillary Clinton.

“How did I get on the lesbian list?” he quipped, then added, “By the way, with Hillary, that’s the way the right wing talks about her.” (For the record, Bill Clinton-era Attorney General Janet Reno, who died in 2016, also denied that she was gay or bisexual.)

Moore, who recently launched a website dubbed TrumpiLeaks intended as a clearinghouse for whistleblowers and a new nonfiction film for The Weinstein Company titled “Fahrenheit 11/9” (for the date of Trump’s election win last fall), said that he’s offered a standing invitation to Trump to attend his show — a box seat with stars-and-stripes bunting in front of it sat empty through the performance.

He also shared that he and Trump shared an agent — CAA’s Ari Emmanuel — and claimed to have overheard a phone call from Trump to Emmanuel in which the “Celebrity Apprentice” star suggested announcing a run for president as a gambit to get a better salary for the NBC reality show — or a counter-offer from another network.

“He just found out that NBC was paying the hosts of other reality shows more than him, like Gwen Stefani on ‘The Voice,'” Moore claimed. According to Moore, Trump told his agent: “I’ve been thinking about running for president. The networks would see how hugely popular I am.”

“Even when he was running, didn’t you feel, Does he want this job?” Moore asked. “Does he want to live in a majority-black city? The penthouse of the White House is the second floor.”

In one of his most provocative bits, Moore played an audio clip from 2005 in which conservative radio host Glenn Beck speculated about killing Moore: “I’m wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it.”

Moore then pretended to leave a voicemail message for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo using Beck’s scripted threat virtually word for word. “Could I just call any public person with these threats the way Glenn Beck did?” he asked. “I don’t think I would get away with it.”

The show, directed by Michael Mayer (“Spring Awakening”) and produced by IMG Original Content and Carole Shorenstein Hays, will have an official opening on August 10 and run for 12 weeks. 101 Production is exec producing.

Moore’s credits include directing “Fahrenheit 9/11,” the highest-grossing documentary of all time, as well as “Bowling for Columbine,” which earned an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Other films include “Sicko,” “Roger & Me” and “Where to Invade Next.”

He also created the television series “TV Nation” and “The Awful Truth,” and has written eight books which have all made the best-seller list.

Last October, Moore dropped a film about Trump titled “Michael Moore in TrumpLand” which screened for the first time in New York City’s IFC Center that month.

John McCain, another snake-tongue flicker, scuttles Obamacare repeal

Recently diagnosed with malignant brain cancer, Sen. John McCain (RINO-Arizona) is making use of whatever days or months remaining in his life to do as much political damage as possible.

See also “John McCain’s foundation is funded by Saudis, Rothschilds & Soros“.

Early today, McCain is one of three fake-Republican senators to kill the GOP’s last-ditch effort to repeal Obamacare.

Joe Tacopino reports for the New York Post that at about 1:30 a.m. this morning, just hours after the “skinny” repeal was released with the hope that it could be sent to the House and be further worked on in committee, the Senate voted on the bill.

Although the 51-49 vote was largely cast along party lines, despite intense pressure from the White House, three so-called Republicans scuttled the repeal by joining Democrats in voting “no”. The three reprobates are John McCain, who had returned to Washington from Arizona following a brain-cancer diagnosis, Susan Collins (RINO-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (RINO-Alaska).

President Trump had rooted for the bill’s passage from the sidelines earlier in the night by sending a message via Twitter: “Go Republican Senators, Go! Get there after waiting for 7 years. Give America great healthcare!”

Just before McCain entered the chamber with the vote already underway, he turned to reporters and smugly told them, “Watch the show,” according to Politico.

As McCain cast his “no” vote, an audible gasp could be heard from the assembly followed by cheers from Democrats.

We should have known John McCain is the devil’s spawn.

As you will see in the video clip below from McCain’s first presidential debate with Barack Obama on Sept. 26, 2008, in the space of a little over one minute (1:14 minutes), McCain flicked his tongue out like a snake almost every second, totaling a dizzying 58 times — at the 0:01, 0:02, 0:03, 0:05, 0:06, 0:07, 0:08, 0:09, 0:10, 0:11, 0:12 (twice), 0:13, 0:14, 0:15, 0:17 (twice), 0:19, 0:20, 0:21, 0:23, 0:24, 0:25, 0:26, 0:27, 0;29, 0:30, 0:32, 0:34, 0:36, 0:37, 0:38, 0:40, 0:41, 0:43, 0:44, 0:45, 0:46 (twice), 0:47, 0:48, 0:49, 0:51, 0:52, 0:53, 0:54, 0:55, 0:57, 0:59, 1:01, 1:03, 1;04, 1:05, 1:07, 1:09, 1:10, 1:12 and 1:13 marks.

See for yourself by slowing down the video. Here’s how:

  • Left click on the wheel icon in the bottom right of the video.
  • Select 0:25 speed.

McCain is the worst of all the snake tongue-flickers I’ve chronicled.

Update (July 31, 2017):

John McCain’s “no” vote was the final and deciding vote that defeated the “skinny” repeal of Obamacare 51-49.  Here’s a video of John McCain’s betrayal:

More unoriginal trash coming out of Hollyweird: “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later”

Wet Hot American Summer was an American comedy film that bombed in 2001. The movie takes place during the last full day at a fictional summer camp in 1981, and spoofs the sex comedies aimed at teen audiences of that era.  The film was a critical and commercial failure, but has since developed a cult following.

And because Hollyweird has no original ideas left, they’ve decided to remake this (albeit set ten years later) as a series on Netflix. From Wikipedia:

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is an upcoming satirical comedy internet television series written by David Wain and Michael Showalter, and directed by Wain. The Netflix series is a sequel to both Wain’s 2001 film Wet Hot American Summer, and the 2015 prequel television series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. The series will consist of eight episodes, and is scheduled to be released on August 4, 2017.

There are plenty of reasons to ignore this internet television series. In fact, here is one reason to avoid this show:

Michael Ian Black: This comic is a favorite douche on Twitchy…because he makes it so easy. Check out his brilliant tweets:

And if that isn’t reason enough to avoid this show, here’s four more…

Christopher Meloni: A devout proggie, Christopher starred in Amy Schumer’s stupid movie, Snatched.  His Twitter timeline embodies TARD (Trump Acceptance Resistance Disorder). Some recent examples:

  • Our snowflake president loves his participation trophies
  • Fragile In Chief and his minions need to be reassured.
  • Mike Pence, organ grinder monkey
  • Trump declared this week is “Made in America Week”. Which is ironic since his clothes aren’t made in America and neither was his presidency.
  • It’s not appropriate for this Pretender In Chief to be constantly vaca-ing on our dime. #GetAJob #BesidesBeingARussianMole
  • Makes one yearn for the wisdom of a Dan Quayle when the Idiot In Chief opens his mouth
  • With all due respect – shut up u f—ing d—, Ur damaged goods and only Putin and idiots and brown Nosers believe in u.

Alyssa Milano: This former child actress has gone full-blown TARD. Just check out her Twitter timeline. Here are a couple examples of her distaste for everything Trump:

  • She slammed Melania’s official portrait saying, “You look beautiful, but you could feed many of the impoverished in our country with your rings.” Apparently rich Republican women are not allowed to own/wear huge diamond rings, only rich Demorat women.
  • In March, Alyssa wrote about how her “anger is palpable.” In an article for Marie Claire, she writes about how women will take down Trump stating, “Removing him will be up to us. Despite the crushing, life-altering blow we suffered on November 8th, it’s [sic] women who are organizing the resistance. Feminine power is boundless. Women can change the world. We already have…and we’re not giving up now.”

Alyssa also supported the Georgia congressional candidate loser Jon Ossoff. She even went to Georgia and offered rides to get people out to vote for him. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Amy Poehler: Amy is a well-known demorat who supported Obama and Hillary Clinton. She promoted Obamacare through the #getcovered hashtag.

Poehler also participated in the “Demand a Plan” video to end gun violence (aka gun control). Funny though, she and her liberal friends enjoy armed protection at award shows. Hypocrite.

Dax Shepard: Dax is married to Kristen Bell, an enthusiastic supporter of Planned Parenthood. Last year the two of them were paid to promote Samsung washing machines, of which there were 21 reported cases of machines that exploded. Oops.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later…another product of Hollyweird that I will not be watching.

John McCain has malignant brain cancer

The Senate’s latest health care reform bill failed because the Republicans were missing one vote — that of John McCain, because we were told he was in a hospital for some treatment.

Now we know what treatment.

Joe Tacopino reports for the New York Post, July 19, 2017:

Arizona Senator John McCain has been diagnosed with brain cancer, his hospital said in a statement Wednesday.

The former Navy officer underwent a procedure to remove a bloodclot last week at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix and more studies have revealed that McCain has a malignant tumor known as Glioblastoma.

“The senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options,” the statement read. “Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.”

Glioblastomas are described as highly malignant, according to the American Brain Tumor Association.

From Wikipedia:

Glioblastoma, also known as glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), is the most aggressive cancer that begins within the brain. Signs and symptoms of glioblastoma are initially non-specific. They may include headaches, personality changes, nausea, and symptoms similar to those of a stroke. Worsening of symptoms is often rapid. This can progress to unconsciousness.

The cause of most cases is unclear…. Glioblastomas represent 15% of brain tumors….

Despite maximum treatment, the cancer usually recurs. The most common length of survival following diagnosis is 12 to 15 months, with fewer than 3% to 5% of people surviving longer than five years. Without treatment survival is typically 3 months. It is the most common cancer that begins within the brain and the second most common brain tumor after meningioma. About 3 per 100,000 people develop the disease a year. It most often begins around 64 years of age and occurs more commonly in males than females.

Born in 1936, John McCain will be 82 next month.

Hollyweird “stars” who want our taxes to pay for Planned Parenthood abortions

These libtards apparently think 1) we care about their opinions and 2) you are too stupid to figure out how to contact your senator.

Know who to boycott.

From Daily Mail: The looming vote on the controversial Senate Republicans’ health care bill has motivated Hollywood to take part in the rancorous debate.

A-listers Jennifer Lawrence, Jon Hamm and Lena Dunham, joined a plethora of 25 more celebrities including Aubrey Plaza, Padma Lakshmi, Suki Waterhouse, Elisabeth Moss, Spike Jonze, Amy Poehler and Brie Larson among many others to create a video on Friday supporting Planned Parenthood.

In the opening frame, superimposed text reads ‘these famous faces want to help you reach your representative.’

A number of celebrities follow with their names before the actual message of the video starts with superstar director of Her and Being John Malkovich Spike Jonze.

The message ‘We need you to contact your United States senator and you can do that by visiting istandwithpp.org/call’ is then carried on by several more celebrities.

After an example of how to leave a message for senators suggesting a no vote for ‘any attempt to defund Planned Parenthood,’ a more personal message is expressed.

‘This is nothing more than a blatantly political attempt to do whatever it takes to attack women’s health and rights and take health care away from the people who need it the most,’ declare another series of celebrities.

Famous activist Gloria Steinem also appears, saying ‘the right to decide our own bodily future is the most basic of all human rights.’

In a statement accompanying the release of the video, Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said: ‘We are so grateful to have the support of so many artists, many of whom have themselves relied on Planned Parenthood for health care and who understand the importance of speaking out.’

‘This support is especially important right now as the Senate is jamming through a bill that would block millions of women from getting birth control and cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood. Now is the time to speak out. One in five women in this country rely on Planned Parenthood for care. They will not stay silent as politicians vote to take away their care and their rights.’

Anticipating its universal unpopularity, Senate Republicans led by Mitch McConnell crafted the bill in secret and only released the actual text of the bill earlier this week.

The bill would end Obama’s tax penalties on people who don’t buy insurance – effectively ending the so-called individual mandate – and on larger companies that don’t offer coverage to their workers, according to AP.

It would offer less generous subsidies for people than Obama’s law but provide billions to states and insurance companies to buttress markets that in some areas have been abandoned by insurers, and has language blocking federal money Planned Parenthood.

Democrats said the measure would result in skimpier policies and higher out-of-pocket costs for many and erode gains made under Obama that saw roughly 20 million additional Americans gain coverage.

The Left’s Civility on Display: MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid attacks Scalise as he recovers in hospital

joy ann reid tweet

DNC media puppets can’t go one day without playing identity politics.

From Fox News: As Rep. Steve Scalise lay in his hospital bed recovering after he was shot by a maniac gunman who was hunting congressional Republicans, an MSNBC host asked whether the House Majority Whip’s life-threatening injuries meant Americans had to “ignore” his political positions.

Joy Ann Reid on Saturday cited Scalise’s positions on ObamaCare and gay marriage as among the concerning “moral” issues she felt couldn’t be overlooked despite his critical injury at the hands of a left-leaning lunatic who opened fire at a GOP baseball practice on June 14.

“There’s a whole country out there and a lot of people, at least in my Twitter timeline, and it’s a delicate thing, because everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Reid said.

She added later: “He also co-sponsored a bill to amend the Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. He co-sponsored the House health care bill which, as you said, would gut health care for millions of people including 3 million children and he co-sponsored a bill to repeal the ban on semiautomatic weapons. Because he is in jeopardy and everybody is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside in the moment?

Scalise, R-La., was among five people shot by James Hodgkinson on the morning of June 14. The gunman was killed by Capitol Police officers who were part of Scalise’s security detail. The personal life of one of those officers prompted a tweet from Reid promoting the segment.

“Rep. #Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background, and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet… #AMJoy,” she wrote.
