Whiny, entitled, and delusional celebrities and athletes are taking to publicly shaming the Trump administration’s policies like we’ve never seen before.
Aside from the slew of B and C-list celebrities who launched an advertisement towards the Electoral College and pleaded with them to vote against the results of the general election, Meryl Streep was patient zero.
When receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes, Streep publicly and unfairly shamed then-President-elect Donald Trump, promptly receiving a thunderous applause.
The SAG Awards were demonstrably worse, where nearly every single actor who won an award attacked Trump and his administration’s policies.
Julia Louis Dreyfus, known for Seinfeld, was one of those actors who spoke out during the SAG Awards. In her victory speech for VEEP she said:
“My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France, and I’m an American patriot and I love this country, and because I love this country I am horrified by its blemishes, and this immigrant ban is a blemish and it is un-American.
And now two of the biggest stars in their own respective professions have also publicly attacked Trump – and without the necessity of receiving an award to get their message out either.
One of the biggest movie stars in the world, Jennifer Lawrence, took to Facebook to speak out against Trump’s immigration ban executive order.
“My broken heart goes out to the innocent lives of Muslim refugees that are trying to escape terror and find safety for their families. I and millions of Americans understand that someone’s race or religion should never keep them in harm’s way.
It should be every person’s duty to help and protect anyone no matter their nationality. I pray for sanity and compassion to return to the White House.”
Of course her criticism is misunderstood because President Trump’s order is only suspending the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days and only prohibits the arrival of refugees into the United States while the refugee vetting process is being reviewed.
Explain how that is unreasonable?
To top it off, Super Bowl winning quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson, said as-a-matter-of-fact that Trump “might not last four years.”
What’s odd is how Wilson has always avoided controversy like the bubonic plague.
But while Wilson was receiving a haircut at a barbershop, CBS Sports taped an interview with him:
Wilson: Let’s talk about world history. Trump? You wanna talk about Trump, huh? Let’s do it.
CBS Sports: Dive in.
Wilson: Ya know, obviously uh. This whole, umm, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, thing that has gone on… Donald Trump becoming our president… Despite anybody’s political views, ummm, everybody has the right to choose who they want to vote for, but this thing is getting outta hand. It’s getting outta hand people. I don’t care who you voted for. Just so you know, I voted for Hillary…
Wilson bloviated for awhile about the protests at LAX and his personal ambiguous faith.
But then he got to the golden part:
Wilson: I think that’s the thing that’s been crazy already. I don’t even know if he’s going to be able to last 4 years, in my opinion. You don’t want to wish bad on anybody but if he doesn’t last 4 years… that means that something went wrong.
Russell Wilson’s right though. Trump’s not going to last 4 years – he’s going to last 8.
So who’s next? Which actor or athlete – while so disillusioned with reality and out of touch with blue collar America – will speak out against Trump next?
What are the Vegas odds of that happening again – and soon?
