95% of Hollywood is the enemy.

Chris Pratt is all I can think of off the top of my head. He wouldn’t have a career except for the fact that he’s so like-able. Also Alice Cooper is on our team.

Hollyweirdos are the enemy of the American Republic in particular and Western civilization generally.

Yes, they are and have been for some time. But they’re not the only enemies. The Education Indoctrination industry, the media, the leftist Deep State made up of both parties, the globalist shysters, the Climate Change Cultists, the Mohammadans, the sexual degenerates, all just for starters...

I say put a special “entertainers tax” of 100% on income above minimum wage. You want confiscatory Marxism, kids ? You got it.

Nobody is stopping you, dude. Lead by example. You can write your own checks to the government till you can't stand it, if that's what you want to do.

How did Meryl Streep’s last movie do? Did it bomb?

Well, I am glad he cleared that up. Now I know to believe Ricky and not my own lying eyes.

You’re being mean; let them keep the livable wage of $15 an hour.

I’ve been gravitating toward permitting a wealth tax on those with net worth over $1 billion. It seems most are all too anxious to demand higher government spending on their favorite social peacocking causes du jour. But I’d be happy to jump on the bandwagon for an entertainers tax as you described. The funniest thing is those like Gervais referring to his kind as elite, when there is nothing except wealth that imputes elitism about them.

Ricky, baby, mainstream, America was sick of the Hollywood elite long before Trump ran for president.

Well his first sentence was enough for me.....Trump didn’t have anything to do with how we see Holly Wood.....Celebrities have done that number all by themselves.

But I will admit they’re all screaming because even their movies aren’t selling to the public anymore....add in their outlandish comments on political issues...Most of them will now do anything to “sell” themselves because they’re not making the big bucks anymore.

Imagine the withdrawal they’re suffering from not having their parties at the WhiteHouse anymore......they’re out of the loop! LOLOLOL

[[What is he smoking? Has he noticed at all the things Hollywood says about Trump?]]

He doesn’t need to smoke anything since he is just another leftist Euroweenie whose brain is already fried.
I wonder if he voted
