    A majority of American voters say they oppose celebrities giving political endorsements, according to a new American Barometer survey. The poll, conducted by Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company, found that 60 percent of respondents said they opposed celebrities giving political endorsements because "they polarize public opinion and distract from the important issues of the day." Forty percent of respondents said they support celebrities giving endorsements because "they spread awareness and engage people to vote." The poll also showed a partisan divide on the issue with 80 percent of Republicans polled saying they oppose the endorsements, and 43 percent of...

    Hundreds of anti-Kavanaugh protesters flooded the Senate office buildings Thursday to scream at senators, chant, sing and hold signs. One of the acts of protest that occurred was a large sit-in held in the Hart Senate office building. Approximately 300 protesters gathered together in a large atrium and chanted anti-Kavanaugh slogans at one another. There were two well-known celebrities that joined them.

    Now 64 and enjoying a second career as host of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Jerry Seinfeld breathes such rarefied air that guests on his show — who have included Dave Chappelle, Tina Fey and then-President Barack Obama — invariably state some version of this sentiment: “Jerry, why are you here, talking to the likes of me, when you could just be home sitting on your pile of money?” And Seinfeld shrugs and laughs as if to say, “Yes, that is true.” So it’s sobering to read the deep and detailed civil complaint filed by producer-director-writer Christian Charles, who has...
  • LAMEST PROTEST EVER: 24 Hour ‘Hunger Strike’ Chic Spreads in Hollywood

    Now, in the face of the latest manufactured meltdown of the mainstream media, a number of celebrities, as well as a couple of noteworthy politicians, are pretending that they too can “suffer” for a cause by enduring one of the most ridiculous and shallow “protests” of all time: The 24 hour “hunger” strike. Alec Baldwin has announced he’s going to take part in a “24-hour hunger strike,” also known as a diet or intermittent fast, as some sort of “protest” against President Trump. From People, “Ethel Kennedy, 90, Joins Alec Baldwin and More Stars in Hunger Strike Against Trump Immigration...

    This video will resume in 28 seconds Director Rob Reiner denounced Robert De Niro and other celebrities for their remarks against President Trump, saying it only helps the president. During an exclusive interview with The Hill’s new TV show “Rising,” which aired on Wednesday, Reiner addressed the controversy surrounding actor Robert De Niro’s “F---Trump” speech during the Tony Awards on Sunday. De Niro called the president a “f---ing idiot” and a “f---ing fool,” which was met with a standing ovation. “You’re helping Trump by saying ‘F--- Trump,’ because he can say 'look at these people, these elitists,' ” Reiner told...

    The Democratic National Committee and members of Congress are turning to Hollywood for help with voter turnout and messaging ahead of the midterm elections and 2020 presidential campaign, quietly consulting with a group of actors, writers and producers here. DNC Chairman Tom Perez, several House members and other top elected officials have already met with the group, formed by members of the entertainment industry in the wake of the 2016 election, that participants liken to a TV writers’ room, complete with producers of such programs as “Veep.” The existence of the group and details of the meetings have not been...
  • Potty-mouthed celebs ramping up vulgar rhetoric to slam Trump

    Hollywood liberals from Robert De Niro to Samantha Bee have ramped up their foul-mouthed language to attack President Trump ahead of the midterm elections – but critics think the vulgar rhetoric will backfire. “These outbursts are little more than political masturbation for the left -- it may make them feel good, but it produces nothing,” conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News. De Niro launched a profanity-laced tirade at Trump during Sunday’s live broadcast of the politically charged Tony Awards, earning a standing ovation from the crowd of liberal elites. “I'm gonna say one thing: F--- Trump!" he stated, as...

    Hollywood celebrities are coming to the aid of the abortion industry following the Trump administration’s announcement of a new rule that ends the notion that abortion is health care or family planning and requires abortion facilities to be physically and financially separate from federally funded family planning centers. The new rule, which can be read at the website of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), bars recipients of federal Title X family planning funds from referring women for abortions and – for abortion providers that also offer family planning services – also requires completely separate facilities for these...

    Several Hollywood celebrities freaked out over comments made by President Donald Trump on Wednesday, in which he referred to members of the MS-13 criminal gang as “animals.” During a roundtable discussion of California’s sanctuary state laws, Trump described members of MS-13 as “animals,” adding that immigration authorities were now “taking them out of the country at a level and rate that’s never happened before.” It is not the first time that Trump has used the phrase to describe the bloodthirsty organization, who have been classified by the FBI as the most violent and organized criminal network in the United States.

    The Los Angeles Police Department will deploy 500 officers to wrap the Dolby Theatre in multiple barriers of armed security for the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday night, an event at which several of Hollywood’s most celebrated stars will actively push for more gun control in America. “We have these concentric rings of security that start in the middle and radiate outward,” said LAPD Cmdr. Blake Chow, the man tasked with overseeing the massive operation. “We have a lot of officers in fixed posts and foot beats keeping an eye on the event.” Several celebrities plan to wear orange lapel...

    I find it odd that people call Wednesday hump day. “When I use a word it means just what I choose it to mean, neither more or less.”Oh sure it’s technically in the middle of the work week. But when you wake up on Wednesday morning do you actually say “yippee! I’ve made it half way through the week!” Because you haven’t. And if you can convince yourself on Wednesday morning that you only have 2 more days to work, well, you’re a true optimist.So my guess is that like many modern conventions Hump Day as a concept was made...
  • The State of the Union stats don’t lie: Americans are turning against Trump-hating celebrities

    01/31/2018 7:33:13 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 38 replies
    The stats don't lie. Within minutes of President Donald Trump's first State of the Union speech, CBS News revealed their YouGov poll approval ratings on it. Unsurprisingly, 97% of Republican speech watchers liked it. More surprisingly, 72% of Independents liked it. Staggeringly, 43% of Democrats liked it. Overall, CBS reported that 75% of Americans approved of the speech. For such a seriously divisive and polarising President, who is currently languishing with just 39% personal approval ratings, these were sensationally good results. Interestingly, 8/10 Americans in the poll felt the President was trying to unite the country with his speech and...

    Suzanne Somers is saying it loud and proud ... she's a huge fan of President Trump, and she also believes she's committing career suicide by saying that. We got Suzanne leaving WeHo hot spot Madeo over the weekend and asked about the government shutdown. She says politicians need to get their crap together, but she praises the Prez ... particularly for the economy. For the record, Trump's GDP stats in his first year mirror almost exactly Obama's in his second term. Suzanne -- whose last big TV gig was on the '90s sitcom "Step by Step" -- can't help but...

    Actress Jamie Lee Curtis attacked President Trump on Saturday over a false alarm sent by Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency (EMA) that alerted residents to a supposedly incoming ballistic missile. In a tweet posted Saturday afternoon, Curtis attacked Trump on Twitter, writing "YOU DID THIS!" despite the fact that the EMA, which is run by the state of Hawaii, apologized for the incident Saturday afternoon and Trump was golfing at the time. "This Hawaii missle scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM....

    This week, retired singer Barbra Streisand took to Twitter to vent against the recently passed tax cuts saying that “blue states, athletes, actors, writers, producers, and directors will be punished by this scam of a tax bill. It targets those of us who have earned millions entertaining America. It limits property tax deductions to only a single residence and caps it at $10,000 per year. I, myself, have several homes. I don’t remember exactly how many, but all of them are in the multimillion dollar range and have annual tax bills far in excess of $10,000.” “What Trump fails to...

    Lookie, Lookie, Lookie, The Hollywood film industry is headed for the trash bin. Just like the Democrat Party is in self-destruction is the Hollywood Cabal of political nutcases, crumbling. Yes, Netflix, Streaming are hurting...but the downfall of the USA film industry is very much being helped to failure and poor performance in both revenue income and ticket sales by poor product and even worse poor choice of politics. Going through life as an avid Left-Wing, Progressive, Hate America, Democrat carries little positive political reward. Even Rupert Murdoch was wise enough to dump his film activity onto Disney.

    Hollywood stars are storming social media and urging their fans to turn out and vote for Democrat Doug Jones on Tuesday. many of them using the hashtag #RightSideOfHistory, launched a last-minute campaign to stop Judge Roy Moore’s bid for the U.S. Senate. Will & Grace star Debra Messing posted a video offering her support for Jones’ Senate bid, as did comedian-actor Keegan-Michael Key and Nashville star Connie Britton. The left-wing celebrity support for Jones in Alabama is reminiscent of the Hollywood-heavy campaign earlier this year for Democrat Jon Ossoff, who lost his bid against Republican Karen Handel in Georgia’s Sixth...

    Prior to Trump being elected, most celebrities rarely tweeted about politics. If they did, it was usually the occasional tweet about climate change. Their twitter feeds were usually filled with behind-the-scenes photos and updates, project news and promotion and humorous banter. Occasionally, I check out the twitter feeds of actors that I used to follow before Trump was elected. Actors who regularly interacted with fans and used to share funny stories about their lives have become cold and distant. Many no longer reply to fans, and some barely promote their own projects anymore. Some celebrity twitter feeds are nearly 100%...

    When I was growing up, my parents almost daily rounded up my four siblings and I for family prayer, the seven of us—albeit with differing degrees of attention—reciting out loud the Catholic prayers of the rosary, while meditating on different events in Jesus Christ’s life. At the end of the rosary, after my dad had rattled off the oh, roughly 785 intentions he wanted the Lord to take some action on, it was the kids’ turn to announce to God what we’d like to see happen. And so when one of my brothers was 2, he began to pray for...

    Former Netflix talk show host Chelsea Handler took to social media Sunday to blame Republicans for the deadly shooting at a Sutherland Springs, Texas, church that claimed the lives of at least 24 people. The 42-year-old Chelsea host was among several celebrities to tweet about the attack as information was still being gathered, including the number of dead and the identity of the gunman. “Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot in killed[sic],” Handler tweeted. “What country? America. Why? Republicans.” Initial reports about the shooting at the Texas church placed...
