Jeffrey Katzenberg on Trump: “Worst nightmare I could ever imagine”

Obama Discusses Economy At DreamWorks Animation Facility In California

Katzenberg and his hero Obama

Good, good…let the butthurt flow!

From Hollywood Reporter: Last fall during a speech at the amfAR Gala Los Angeles, just a handful of days before the presidential election, Jeffrey Katzenberg denounced the soon-to-be-elected Donald Trump as a demagogue. “Day after day, we are being subjected to the hateful speech of a man who is actually trying to turn the clock back,” he said at the time. “He’s trying to take us back to darkness. We must not let this happen.”

Many would argue that dark times are here in the wake of deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va., as Trump went back on condemning white supremacists and neo-Nazis and instead insisted there was “blame on both sides,” referring to what he called “alt-left” protesters, many of whom showed up to speak out against hate speech in favor of civil and human rights. (Nice bias there Hollywood Reporter.)

When The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Katzenberg on Thursday night, just as he was heading into MPTF’s NextGen Summer Party on a NeueHouse rooftop in Hollywood, the staunch Democratic supporter and longtime fundraiser almost seemed at a loss for how to respond to Trump’s controversial week. “Mortified is the only word I can think of,” Katzenberg told THR. “It is beyond comprehension.”

He continued, adding that “the worst nightmare that I could ever imagine doesn’t come close to this [reality].”

So now what? Just how will Katzenberg be rallying his influential Rolodex? Though he wouldn’t give specifics, Katzenberg hinted that he’s taking action, urging others to do the same. “People have to stand up,” he said. “Every voice matters. Now is when it matters most.”

Feminists are insufferable: Helen Mirren bashes Ivanka Trump and says Melania has the power to bring down her husband

Helen Mirren

#WarOnWomen who don’t agree with you.

This is rich: From Hollywood Reporter

“Helen Mirren Gets Insulted When People Treat Her the Age She Is.” From the article:

Mirren doesn’t want anyone treating her like her age, either. “If people treat me like the age I am, I get absolutely insulted, really cross. I hate when people give up their seat for me,” says Mirren.

Yet she’s perfectly A-OK with insulting other people. Got it.

From Daily Mail: Dame Helen Mirren has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and his administration, and the actress didn’t hold back when it came to sharing his thoughts on his daughter’s ‘ignorant’ book about working women.  

Although Ivanka Trump has branded herself as a feminist who is dedicated to empowering women, 72-year-old icon and advocate for women’s rights told Allure that she isn’t buying it.

‘[Ivanka] talks a good game, but there’s no substance. Her book is so ignorant about how the majority of women live, talking about, “Make time for yourself to have a massage.” Puh-lease,’ Mirren said in reference to Women Who Work, Ivanka’s latest book.

Women Who Work received scathing reviews from numerous publications that slammed the book for being tone-deaf when it it came out in May this year. In one excerpt, Ivanka discussed going into ‘survival mode’ while working on her father’s presidential campaign, explaining that she didn’t have time to treat herself to massages or meditate like she would have liked.

Critics found revelations like those to be cringe-worthy and oblivious to the realities that plague other working moms that don’t have the financial means or outside help that Ivanka has.

Despite her obvious disdain for Ivanka, who works as her father’s senior adviser, Mirren’s feelings about First Lady Melania Trump are more mixed.

‘You look at old Mel there, and she is one of the most powerful women in the world because she could take him down,’ the actress said of Melania, noting that the former model ‘almost’ brought her husband down when she brushed off his hand.

‘I’m Eastern European, you know; [we’ve] got these dark souls,’ Mirren added. ‘That dark Slovenian soul is about to come out. She’s only got to do a nice interview with Allure.’

Now an outspoken advocate for gender equality, the Academy, Emmy and Tony Awards winner reflected on her past struggle to call herself a feminist, and how she has embraced the label.

‘I wasn’t into the very didactic feminism of the ’60s and ’70s because I liked wearing makeup and high heels. That was a no-no. It was sort of “That’s playing to the patriarchy,” ‘ she said.

‘I was thinking, “Well, I just really like it.” Then as feminism developed, they realized you can like nice dresses, high-heeled shoes, and makeup. That’s not stopping you from being feminist.’

The British-born actress, who had a Russian father and an English mother, recounted taking part in New York City’s Women’s March earlier this year, describing it as a ‘positive, funny… joyous’ event, even though everyone in attendance ‘had good reason to be angry’.

Bashing the current administration, she added: ‘[Trump] just said and did whatever it took to get what he desired. That is quite terrifying, because it means there’s a lack of morality there and a lack of conscientiousness.

ABC “Scandal” star goes off on Trump voters

Joshua Malina: Foul-mouthed self-important actor

Remember, #LoveTrumpsHate!

From Daily Mail: An actor on the show Scandal launched a series of crude tweets aimed at Trump and his supporters, calling them ‘stupid c**ks’ and ‘homophobic’.

Joshua Malina, who plays character Attorney General David Rosen on the hit ABC drama, has been at war with Twitter users who voted for Trump since he made the offensive comments on Tuesday.

Malina declared that those who voted for the president were ‘stupid c**ks’, and added they were also ‘homophobic, anti-Semitic, misogynistic, transphobic, and unfunny’. 

The network and show’s producer Shonda Rhimes have seemingly not disciplined Malina, passing on the opportunity to comment on his crude remarks.

Rhimes gave Katherine Heigl the boot from Grey’s Anatomy for allegedly being difficult to work with and also fired actor Isaiah Washington from the same set for reportedly saying a homophobic slur to his co-star.

Malina has been a long-time critic of Trump and released his thoughts on the billionaire president to his 240,000 Twitter followers.

He wrote on Tuesday: ‘If you’re one of the stupid cks who voted for this stupid ck, do you not feel like a stupid c**k?’

His comment rubbed a lot of social media users the wrong way, many calling for the boycott of Scandal and admonishing Malina for blasting other people’s views.

Malina fired back responses all day to angry Twitter users, prompting him to tweet on Wednesday: ‘Had fun w Trump supporters on Twitter 2day! In addition to stupid, they are homophobic, antisemitic, misogynistic, transphobic, and unfunny.’

Some are actively calling for a boycott of Scandal because of Malina’s tweets. One user wrote: ’65 million people voted for Trump… that’s a lot of people who won’t watch this show anymore.’

User @stults_dave added: ‘I don’t feel stupid. I feel proud I voted for Trump! You Hollywood Communists don’t speak for middle America. Another said: ‘@JoshMalina another Hollywood liberal grasping for more exposure. I’d never heard of you before today and I shall forget you tomorrow.’

@vero00 said: ‘It is disgusting that Joshua Malina has not been reprimanded for his classless comments.’

Dan Gainor, VP of business and culture at the Media Research Center, said to Fox News that Malina’s outburst was the ‘way of things in Hollywood, where millionaires tell the rest of us that we’re idiots and then curse at us.

‘Our response should be simple: Turn off their shows. Let them go get real jobs. 

ABC and Rhimes did not respond to Fox’s request for a comment.

Actor Chris Hemsworth is an environmental warrior hypocrite

chris hemsworth

Chris (center) and his buddies flying a private jet…

Chris Hemsworth is an Australian actor who is probably best known for his role in Thor. He also claims to be an environmental warrior, especially for the oceans. From One Green Planet:

Australian actor Chris Hemsworth recently posted a photo on Instagram while collecting plastic waste from a beach. The image was also captioned with an important message about the problem. Hemsworth is now the Ambassador of the #100Islandsprotected project by Corona X Parlay and is “thrilled to be a part of this program.”

The actor stressed that he’s spent a great part of his life around the ocean. In the presence of this enormous natural body, he always felt calm, happy, and present. This proximity to the ocean and the big part it has played in Hemsworth’s life made him realize all the more our need to protect it. “My experience in the Maldives made it obvious how our short-term use of plastic has a long-term damaging effect on our oceans,” he wrote.

As the Ambassador of the project, he will focus on educating people about the negative effects plastic waste has on the oceans.

This is not, however, the first time the actor spoke up about the environmental issues. Earlier this year, he posted a picture with a member of the Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii who runs large-scale beach clean-ups. Before that, Hemsworth posted about vaquitas, a marine species that is now severely endangered due to illegal fishing and on the verge of total extinction. He also spoke against whaling back in 2015.

Guess what the ambassador of the oceans did on Saturday to get to the Comic Con festival in San Diego? He flew via private jet to the event. The picture above is from his Instagram account.

From the web site of the private jet company Chris was on, Zetta Jet:

We at Zetta Jet are dedicated to putting the luxury back into private travel, to personalizing private flight again.

I know that plastic in the oceans is a big problem and commend him for supporting that issue.

Chris wants us to believe he understands the solution to protect the world’s oceans yet he flies a private gas-guzzling and –emitter jet which contributes to climate change (and he frequently flies via this mode). If you’re going to talk the talk, walk the walk (or fly commercial).

Course I’m sure Leo is proud of him.

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.

Hollyweird actress wants “old white guys in suits” to talk about birth control

sophia bush

I would expect this narrative from an actress who supports baby butchers Planned Parenthood.

And where ‘ya been Sophia? Didn’t you know that men CAN get pregnant? What a transphobe.

From Cosmopolitan: When Sophia Bush, 35, isn’t fighting crime as Detective Erin Lindsay on Chicago P.D., or reminiscing about the good ol’ days playing Brooke Davis on One Tree Hill, the actor uses social media to tackle topics that matter to her, including women’s rights. She recently teamed up with Teva Women’s Health to launch the #NoHormonesPlz campaign, which reminds women to talk to each other and their doctors about birth-control options — there are many! She recently spoke to Cosmopolitan.com about why she cares:

Why are you speaking out about birth-control options now?

It’s [important to] talk about empowering women by giving them sovereignty over their own bodies, particularly in a climate where women’s rights are being attacked. I’m lucky that I went to a very progressive all-girls school growing up, and it felt like a safe space for these issues to be discussed. Not everyone has that luxury.

It’s hyper important to make sure people know that what their options are — especially in a time where people don’t know what kinds of care they’re going to have access to in the first place.

Some women need to use hormonal birth control because of endometriosis or because of their skin or because whatever’s going on in their particular body and their particular cocktail of DNA. Some women don’t want to add anything to the mix of their body or fare much better with birth control that is non-hormonal. You shouldn’t have to take a birth control that doesn’t agree with your body.

When did you first start talking about birth-control options?

I remember a conversation in high school with a friend who started taking birth control because of skin benefits. Later, I was like, “Wait a minute, was that a rouse? Was that a thing people said so they didn’t have to talk about whether or not they were having sex? Why are women encouraged to treat how they take care of their bodies as something that has to be excused by something else?”

How do you think we can get men more involved in the birth-control conversation?

We have to shift the conversation to include men, which means it shouldn’t be about girls wanting to be sexually active and not get pregnant or girls being promiscuous as certain arenas of old white guys in suits would like to tell us. Like, slow down, bro. The real point of having a birth-control conversation is talking about how a woman, whether she’s single or has a partner, gets to plan her life. For instance, if you’re in a master’s program, you might not want to have a kid until after that’s done. We should be looking at birth control as an education issue and a workforce issue. If men could get pregnant, the birth-control conversation would be incredibly different.

In what ways has access to birth control enabled your career?

I work in TV. I can’t just get pregnant — that’s not an option for me, and for many women who can’t just be like, “Oh, looks like I misread the calendar and I’m just going to be out of work for a while.” That’s not a thing, especially in a world in which we don’t have guaranteed paid family leave.

Guess where George Clooney is moving his family to protect them?

clooney

Back in February 2016 George Clooney and his wife Amal met with Angela Merkel “to discuss the ongoing crisis in the Middle East and the political reaction to it in Europe and elsewhere.”

After the meeting, George Clooney declared to the world that he and Amal fully support Merkel’s open-door policy towards “refugees,” telling reporters: “I absolutely agree with her”.

In July that same year, a massive migrant camp formed near Clooney’s Italian mansion.

It’s odd that a couple who wholly supported the migrant invasion are now fleeing Europe for the safety of the good ol’ USA…

From Daily Mail: He’s made a home for his family in their stunning £20 million property in Sonning-On-Thames, Berkshire. Yet George Clooney is said to be considering relocating from the English countryside to Los Angeles as he fears for the safety of wife Amal and their newborn twins.

Following the birth of Ella and Alexander last month, the doting new dad, 56, has reportedly been increasingly worried about the level of security in their homes, Life&Style reports.

A source told the site that George had received threats in the past, whilst he was concerned that his wife’s work as an international human rights lawyer could make her a target. ‘He doesn’t feel like Amal and the twins are safe living in the English countryside,’ the insider explained. ‘As soon as Amal found out she was pregnant, he hired former Secret Service agents to assess all his properties and make recommendations for improvement.’

They claimed the star’s mansion in Studio City, California was the most secure, as they added: ‘He’s waited so long for this family, he’ll do whatever it takes to keep them safe.’

MailOnline have contacted George’s representatives for comment.

George wed Amal, 39, in 2014, and bought their sprawling £7.5 million home in the English countryside later that year. They have reportedly spent an additional £12.5 million on the sprawling estate, including building a nanny’s quarters.

As well as their English manor and Studio City pad, the pair also own two villas in Laglio, Italy and a holiday home in the Mexican beach location of Cabo.
