Suck it Hollyweird: Ratings for 2018 Emmy Awards hit all-time low

From Fox News: Hollywood may have laughed when Emmys host Michael Che said the only white people who thank Jesus are “Republicans and ex-crackheads,” but Tinseltown’s latest middle finger to Middle America fell flat in flyover country, and may have contributed to the telecast’s all-time low viewership.

Co-host Michael Che left many viewers of the 70th Annual Emmy Awards upset during the opening monologue with his fellow “Saturday Night Live” star Colin Jost, explaining that his mother would not be watching the show on Monday night.

“She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough,” Che said. “That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.

The joke didn’t sit well with some viewers, who took to Twitter to complain. Not only that, the show’s ratings dropped 10 percent from last year’s already-dismal numbers, setting an all-time low, according to TheWrap.

While many viewers may have changed the channel after the opening monologue, jabs at average Americans were far from over and the Jesus gag became a running theme throughout the evening.

Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that “large swaths of the American public just want to be entertained” but instead were turned into “unwilling participants” in a political rally disguised as an awards show.

“Whether it’s the NFL or the Emmys, people desperately want a break from politics. It’s amazing to me at just how tone deaf Hollywood is,” Barron said.

“Most Republicans have stopped watching awards shows or know that even if they can stomach it, the White House and their core values will be attacked. I kept thinking last night, thank goodness for a few actors like Chris Pratt, who buck the trend and show a healthy respect and love for Christianity in acceptance speeches,” Fox Nation host Britt McHenry said. “Reverence for God is something to cherish and uphold, not ridicule.”

Jokes about religious Republicans weren’t the only jabs at Middle America.

Prior to the official event, actress Regina King spoke with E! about a cryptic Instagram post in which she asked to “stop making stupid people famous,” which many have interpreted as a dig at President Trump. The Red Carpet also featured actress Jennifer Lewis wearing a Nike sweatshirt “to applaud them for supporting Colin Kaepernick,” who has polarized the nation by starting the trend of kneeling during the national anthem prior to NFL games.

Jost discussed a handful of shows that were canceled and picked up by other networks before joking that Roseanne Barr’s show was “picked up by white nationalists.” He also implied that some Americans don’t think Nazis are bad and fantasized about President Obama upsetting Trump with a dig at the former reality TV star who is famously obsessed with ratings.

“The Obamas now even have their own production deal at Netflix,” Jost said. “My dream is that the only thing they produce is their own version of ‘The Apprentice.’ And it gets way higher ratings.”

Meanwhile, the Emmys decided to honor late Senator John McCain during its in memoriam. Nobody would complain about an American hero being remembered in front of a national audience, but Media Research Center contributing writer Karen Townsend questioned the motive behind the decision.

One can’t help but wonder if this was done as a subtle dig at President Trump. After all, it was only 10 years ago that all of Hollywood hated McCain when he ran for president against their beloved Obama,” she wrote.

Later in the show, award winner Ryan Murphy called America a “country that lets hatred grow unfettered and unchecked.” Anti-Trump comedian Samantha Bee – best known for vile comments about first daughter Ivanka Trump – joked that the news should “recast the lead.”

Commie traitor comes from "a long line of sad people"

Traitor

Jane Fonda, ‘Peace, Love and Misunderstanding’ Star, On The Occupy Movement

Commie traitor Hanoi Jane has a new movie coming out.  So of course, she’s giving presses spewing her opinion.  Here’s an excerpt from HuffingtonPuffington’s interview with woman.
HuffPo:  In “Peace Love and Misunderstanding” (out in limited release now), Fonda plays Grace, the spirited-yet-estranged mother of the newly single Diane (Catherine Keener) and grandmother to Zoe (Elizebeth Olsen) and Jake (Nat Wolff). In the film, Fonda’s character plays a war protester, which — considering Fonda’s outspoken traitor history — led us into some interesting conversations about her political past and her thoughts on current protest, namely the Occupy movement.
You look like you’re having the time of your life in this movie. I was. I had a very good time, yes.
Is that why you chose it? I’d never played a character like her. Contrary to what some people think, I’m not like her. I never was a hippie. Also, I have a daughter and grandchildren and the idea that I would have been deprived of seeing my daughter for 20 years and never meet my grandchildren moved me very much. And, you know, forgiveness is a big theme in my life and so I wanted to make a movie about it.
Your character is a war protester. Could you have played this character in the late ’70s or early ’80s? Well, I wasn’t old enough [laughs].
True. The age of the character aside, though. Aside from whether I would have been old enough? I think, probably back in the ’70s, it would have been a little bit too … you know, I never was that kind of a war protester. I was more of an organizer; it was a little bit more serious. And I wasn’t known for my sense of humor in those days. I probably would have thought it was a little too light and frivolous, vis-à-vis the war — when the war was going on. But, now, it’s a very different time. And I’m different.
Why has your sense of humor changed? Because I spent ten years with Ted Turner. He taught me how to laugh [laughs]. It’s true.
You really think that you didn’t know how to laugh before meeting him? Not really, no. I come from a long line of a lot of sad people.

Wonderful


Again, your character is a war protester. What’s your opinion of the Occupy movement? Right on! I say right on! It’s an important, wonderful movement. It doesn’t fit the mold.
Is that what you like about it? That it doesn’t fit the mold? I think that’s what allows it to be successful in its own way. Because it has no leader; it has no set of rules. But, the values are good and it makes a difference. And I say right on.
Your point about not having a leader is interesting. It limits the range if there’s a leader. This can occupy a big space on a lot of different areas, but the core value is, “What about democracy?” It’s about democracy and against greed.
For so many reasons. It was the first time I learned how important movies can be. They really do affect people’s lives.
Against greed?  This coming from a woman who has an estimated net worth of $120 million and her former husband Ted Turner who has an estimated net worth of $2.1 billion.  Nothing greedy about that I guess, even though Rosanne Barr would like to behead both of them.
Forgiveness is a big theme in her life?  Of course it is, especially when it comes to selling books being greedy.  We need to forgive her for “That two-minute lapse of sanity will haunt me until the day I die.” Explain away all you want you American traitor.
You come from a long line of a lot of sad people?  I come from a long line of family members who fought and served in the military, including a father who served in Vietnam and Korea. I learned from him how important service to your country can be.  Those who fight/fought to protect and serve this great nation really do affect people’s lives.
