Remember, #LoveTrumpsHate!

From Daily Mail: Robert de Niro called President Trump a ‘f***ing fool’ in a foul-mouthed rant as he presented Meryl Streep with a best actress award on Tuesday night.

Introducing Streep at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala in New York – which is not broadcast on TV – De Niro took time out to call the President a ‘f***ing idiot’ and compare his presidency to the fairytale of the Emperor’s New Clothes.

The Oscar-winner also branded Trump the ‘baby-in-chief’ and ‘jerk-off-in-chief’ while discussing Streep’s new film The Post, which is about the publication of the Pentagon Papers into the Vietnam War.

De Niro said: ‘It was fascinating to watch The Post. That story took place nearly 50 years ago, but there are many parallels with today obviously. At the time of the story Donald Trump was suffering with “bone spurs”. Today the world is suffering from the real Donald Trump.

This fing idiot is the President. It’s The Emperor’s New Clothes – the guy is a fing fool. 

‘The publication of the Pentagon Papers was a proud moment for American journalism. The Times and the Post challenged the government over critical First Amendment issues. And the press prevailed.

‘Our government today, with the propping [up] of our baby-in-chief – the jerkoff-in-chief I call him – has put the press under siege, trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies.’

‘And again just like 1971 the press is distinguishing itself with brave, exacting journalism.

‘The movie gave us glimpses of President Nixon as delusional, narcissistic, petty, vindictive, nasty and bats*** f***ing crazy. Ah the good old days.’

De Niro has long been a vocal critic of Trump, saying during the presidential campaign that he would ‘like to punch him in the face.’

Since then he has used many public speaking opportunities to trash the President, calling him a ‘blatant racist’, a ‘bozo’ and a ‘motherf***er’.

Libtard Meryl Streep targeted by street artist with “She Knew” posters

meryl streep

From Hollywood Reporter: In posters that appeared in several locations in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Meryl Streep was seemingly depicted as a Harvey Weinstein enabler by anonymous street artists. 

Posters hung early in the morning, before the sun came up, feature an image of Streep next to Weinstein with a red strip across her face with the text: “She knew,” an apparent reference to Weinstein’s alleged sexual abuse of women over the course of decades.

The posters are a riff on the work of artist Barbara Kruger, whose signature text in red banners has been adapted and copied for decades.

The posters went up near Streep’s house in Pasadena, near the SAG-AFTRA building in Mid-Wilshire and across from the 20th Century Fox studio lot in Century City. Fox is behind the drama The Post, which stars Streep alongside Tom Hanks and opens on Jan. 11.

The artists are referring to an accusation (which Streep has denied) that she did not speak up sooner about Weinstein’s alleged predatory behavior. That claim has been promoted by actress Rose McGowan, who alleges she was raped by Weinstein.

On Tuesday, Streep issued a response to McGowan. “I want to let her know I did not know about Weinstein’s crimes, not in the ‘90s when he attacked her, or through subsequent decades when he proceeded to attack others,” Streep stated. “I wasn’t deliberately silent. I didn’t know. I don’t tacitly approve of rape. I didn’t know.”

Meryl Streep: “It’s difficult to be political during Trump’s presidency”

meryl streep

Life is difficult when you have TDS.  And I won’t take her suggestion for the next president, actor Tom Hanks, seriously. After all, she supports a convicted rapist and serial sexual harasser. Her admiration of these characters speaks volumes about her own character.

From Fox News: Three-time Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep, who is an outspoken critic of President Trump, said she has no interest in being a political leader during his presidency.

Streep told BuzzFeed News on Tuesday that being critical of Trump has affected her life and she was not interested in being a political leader.

“It’s affected my life because I don’t really — I don’t want to be that. I don’t want to be that,” Streep, who dressed as Trump in June, old BuzzFeed. “I’m a really private person, and like a lot of people in show business, I’m actually shy so it’s hard for me to do all this stuff.”

Streep was likely referring to her speech she made during the Golden Globes earlier this year when she accepted the Cecil B. Demille Award and used the platform to criticize Trump for imitating a disabled reporter. Streep said Trump’s behavior “sank its hooks in my heart” and called on the press to hold the president accountable for “every outrage.”

“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose,” Streep said.

Trump responded to Streep’s speech shortly after, calling her “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood.”

At the Women’s March a few weeks later, protesters carried signs calling for the “Florence Foster Jenkins” star to run for president.

“I’ve lived through all these eras and it doesn’t feel like an alien landscape,” Streep said regarding today’s political climate, “but it does feel like stepping back in time and how quickly we forget what the world was like 40 years ago.”

Streep, who was talking to BuzzFeed to promote her new movie “The Post” with co-star Tom Hanks and director Steven Spielberg, announced Hanks should run for president.

“Tom (Hanks), on the other hand, should be president,” Streep said. “I mean really, this guy, there really is no one who knows more about history, statesmanship. No, seriously, it’s true!”

Five more women come forward to accuse Roman Polanski of sexual assault

From Daily Mail: Five more women have come forward to accuse Roman Polanski of molesting them when they were children. They women described how the convicted child rapist, now 84, sexually assaulted them in the late 1960s and 70s before he went on the run for the statutory rape of another underage girl.

The five new anonymous victims revealed their stories to imetpolanski.com, a new website set up in the wake of multiplying sexual assault accusations against Hollywood figures.

Its founder Matan Uziel shared details of their allegations with The Sun on Tuesday.

Among them is one woman who claims Polanski molested her in 1972 or 1973 when she was nine years old. He was around 39.

Another claims he ‘squeezed and rubbed’ her genitals in 1976 when she was 15 and he was 43 as they sat a dinner table with her parents and actors Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston in the Alpine Swiss town of Gstaad. ‘Polanski sat on my left side, put his hand on my leg. He then proceeded to touch my genitals and tried to squeeze and rub it with his hand, all that under the table in front of my father’s face,’ she said.

It was at Nicholson’s Hollywood home where the director drugged and raped Samantha Geimer in 1977 when he was 13. 

She added that Gstaad, where Polanski was pictured last month, was a safe haven for pedophiles. ‘Gstaad is a corrupt place. Beautiful but rotten from within.

‘It was and is a sanctuary for well known pedophiles and perverts who want to molest children, far away from any danger, far away from the press. ‘When you pay high taxes and throw your money, they turn a blind eye,’ she said.

The new accusations bring the total number of women who have accused Polanski of assault to 10. 

Of the new accusers, two say they were attacked by him in 1969, the same year in which his first wife Sharon Tate was murdered by members of the Charles Manson family.  It is not clear whether the alleged attacks happened before or after her slaying.  The other alleged attack happened in 1976 when the woman was 12.

Four other women previously described how Polanski abused them. 

They include Marianne Barnard, an artist who says he photographed her nude and then molested her on a beach in Malibu, California, when she was just 10.  Her mother arranged the meeting, she said.

German actress Renate Langer claimed on October 3 that she was attacked by him in Gstaad in 1972. Swiss police are investigating her accusation. 

She revealed how he attacked her in an interview with The New York Times, admitting that she was too afraid to tell her parents about it at the time.

In August, a woman who identified herself only as Robin M. claimed at a press conference that she was attacked by Polanski when she was 16 in 1973. She said the incident happened in southern California but would not go into further detail. She is not suing him but offered to testify against him to stop his 1978 arrest warrant from being dropped.

Charlotte Lewis, a British actress, also claims to have been assaulted by Polanski. She said he forced himself on her as she auditioned for a role in one of his films in Paris in 1983. By this time, Polanski was already on the run for having raped Geimer six years earlier.

She reported her accusations to police in Los Angeles but not in Paris where the alleged attack took place.

Polanski remains on the run after fleeing the US following his 1977 attack on Geimer. He has been pleading for years to have the 1978 arrest warrant thrown out so that he can return to America.

He fled to France days before he was due to go to court over the attack. At the time, Polanski had reached a deal with prosecutors which meant he would serve a shorter sentence.

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

crybaby

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.”

Roman Polanski agrees to return to the US if he’s guaranteed no jail time

Roman Polanski

Meryl Streep and Lena Dunham are no doubt ecstatic about this development.

From Yahoo: 39 years after fleeing the US in the face of rape charges, Roman Polanski has at last agreed to return, but with one somewhat unbelievable caveat.

Deadline report that the 83-year old French-Polish director’s legal representation has told the Los Angeles Superior Court that their client will come back to LA and face his charges so long as he is given the guarantee that he will serve no jail time.

The motion filed by attorney Harland Braun declares, “Mr. Polanski asks this Court to acknowledge that he was promised a specific custody portion of his sentence by Judge Rittenband and he has more than fulfilled the custody portion of his sentence under the principle of comity, California law and the admissions by the District Attorney to the Polish Court. With such assurance by this current Court, Mr. Polanski will return to Los Angeles to be sentenced.”

It seems doubtful this audacious demand will go down well in all corners, given Polanski is charged with the rape of a 13-year old girl in 1977.

The initial deal offered by Judge Laurence Rittenband in 1978 decreed that Polanski would serve only 90 days in a psychiatric hospital – again, somewhat audacious under the circumstances. However, after being informed that the Judge had changed his mind and would push for the maximum sentence, Polanski fled the country.

Polanski has been a controversial figure in the four decades since. More than once the US courts have attempted to extradite him to face charges, whilst Polanski’s own legal representation has more than once failed to get the charges dropped out of court.

None of this has stopped Polanski from continuing with his career as a filmmaker, however, and at the 75th Academy Awards in 2003 he was awarded the Best Director Oscar for ‘The Pianist.’

Boycott tonight’s Academy Awards show

Tonight is the 89th Academy Awards Show, the penultimate narcissistic display of Hollyweirdos.

preening-peacock

Viewership of Hollywood’s annual love fest has been steadily declining. The ratings for last year’s (2016) 88th Academy Award show were the lowest in 8 years — a decrease of 6% from the year before (2015), which had decreased 16% from the year before (2014). (Source: The Daily Lion)

This year, the show promises to be even more unwatchable because participants such as snake-tongue Meryl Streep already said they will misuse the occasion to speak out against Donald Trump, the duly-elected President of the no longer United States of America.

So make sure you boycott the show.

Tune your TV to another channel. Surf the net. Read a book. Go out for a walk. Gaze at your navel. Do anything but watch this display of pompous, grossly-overpaid, preening peacocks who pretend for a living, who think they know better and talk down to us — those whom Katie Couric called “the great unwashed”.

If you need a reminder of just how little we have in common with the Hollyweirdos, see these previous FOTM posts:

And if you need a reminder of how intolerant the Left are —

Yesterday, a day before the Academy Awards show, dozens of Trump supporters rallied on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, to defend the president, protect his star on the Walk of Fame, and show their support for the construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border. Demonstrators carried signs such as “Mexicans for Trump,” “California for Trump” and “Women for Trump.”

The rally was also, in the words of organizer Matthew Woods, to boycott “many actors and film directors who have an anti-America agenda.”

But the peaceful rally was disrupted by fisticuffs from anti-Trumpers. One anti-Trumper — a woman with heavy makeup and dyed blonde hair — snatched a placard from a Trump supporter and broke it in two. Thankfully, police immediately arrested her.

FOTM reader Josh is right when he wrote:

“look at what their drones are doing since they lost overt power, the riots, town hall meeting protests, all sorts of idiocy. Now imagine them back in power. If they get back into power after Trump, a police state beyond what Hitler managed is likely as far as I’m concerned.”

It really is war. It is time to choose which side you’re on. Boycott tonight’s Academy Awards!
