It appears that Hollywood just won’t get it. They are celebrities so that they can entertain. Yet, they continue to act like people will tune into them for their political opinion and rather ridiculous swipes at the right. It appears they never got the memo…. “do not bite the hand that feeds you.”
Last years’ Emmys show wasn’t even an awards show at all, it was more like a Trump roasting session. America didn’t appreciate it at all, and the ratings reflected that. This year, although there were fewer shots at President Donald Trump himself, it was still a very liberal theme for their ‘not funny’ jokes and plenty of aggressive hits at ‘white people’, ‘Republicans’, and anything of the like.
The opening monologue itself was a full-on cringe festival. So awkward. So NOT funny, not even a little bit. It was hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost and they bombed it. Even by Hollywood standards.
Wow! Ratings for last nite's Emmys hit an all-time record low. How could that be? TV is losing middle America is one reason. The punch lines may have have been funny (some of the jokes were flat). But this one-sided approach, beating up one political target, is a loser's game.

Jost went on about a few shows that were canceled and then that were picked up by other networks. He then made a disgusting comment about Rosanne Barr’s show also getting picked up by “white nationalists.”
Jost also had the audacity or ‘stupid’ to imply that in today’s America there are some Americans that do not think Nazis are evil. Another non-joke that fell flat. However, probably one of his worst attempts at throwing shade was his comment on President Obama, Netflix, and President Trump.
“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.”
Yes, he literally ranted on just like a butthurt schoolyard kid who cries after he gets hit by the kid he tried to bully just moments before. Oh Jost, please take a seat, or go cry yourself to sleep.
Michael Che didn’t do any better. In fact, he may have been the bigger failure of the two, if that is possible. He took things further and used his mother in his attempt to spread hate. Who does that?! This guy does.
“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.”
Sorry, but what’s the point of that ‘joke’? He lost me at ‘white award shows’, mostly because he’s black and the host. Sooooo… what again?
Can't we just enjoy the Emmy without acting political? Why would an award winner tell the audience to #GoBlue? Are we so dumb not to know which party to vote? Enough of this foolishness. Hollywood hasn't learnt Anything yet.

You would think the show couldn’t get any worse, but just wait, it totally does. Jennifer Lewis who is an actress, I guess, showed up to the awards show wearing a Nike sweatshirt because what is a liberal actress without an attempt at scoring more attention for a cause that she probably doesn’t even fully understand. So lame.
Of course, she says her choice of attire was “to applaud them for supporting Colin Kaepernick.” Yay! Let’s all applaud Nike then for setting their future on fire.
Needless to say, last year’s ratings for the show dropped substantially, but this year’s dropped even lower! A full 10% lower than last year’s to be exact.
“In the final numbers, last year’s Emmys snared 11.8 million viewers and a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49. That translated into matching the previous viewership low of the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted 2016 Emmys and a new low among the key demographic. Those record lows, based on the first set of numbers we are looking at today, appear very likely to be eclipsed this year.
“Even in a small-screen environment where the likes of the Academy Awards and the Grammys have experienced up to 20% ratings drops of late, the early numbers for the Emmys are surprising.
“It’s clear that people have just had enough.”
From Fox News:
“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.’”
It’s no surprise, right? Hollywood has been in the business of patting themselves on the back for years already, and now since they want to also be nasty about it, Americans are learning they are the hand that feeds Hollywood and they are tired of getting bit!
Do you happen to be one of those Americans?

Male Bartender Suing CNN’s Don Lemon For Sexually Charged Assault In The Hamptons
Don Lemon is being sued by a man who claims the anchor sexually harassed and assaulted him while out at a Hamptons hotspot. Classy. And it is graphic. Written statements indicate it was a filthy, sexually-charged attack on a bartender in New York. That bartender’s name is Dustin Hice, 38.
Dustin was out with his co-workers at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern in Sag Harbor on or around July 15th, 2018, when Lemon allegedly assaulted him, detailing the incident in a complaint that was filed over the weekend in New York Supreme Court for Suffolk County court. Lemon, of course, denies the assault.
Unfortunately for Lemon, Dustin recognized him and did his best at first to get Don’s attention. He wanted to buy him a drink. Lemon, 53, responded to Hice’s offer by declining the drink and telling the young man he was ‘just trying to have a good time’, according to the court filing. Lemon is openly gay and married to another man and you would think that he would just tell the guy that. But not so much.
Things got violent and sketchy later that evening between Hice and Lemon according to court documents. “Sometime later that evening, unexpectedly, Mr. Lemon walked towards Plaintiff and his colleagues inside of Murf’s,” states the complaint. “At such time, Mr. Lemon, who was wearing a pair of shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt, put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers into Plaintiff’s mustache under Plaintiff’s nose.”
“Mr. Lemon intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head to thrust backward as Defendant repeatedly asked Plaintiff “Do you like p***y or d**k?”. While saying this, Mr. Lemon continued to shove his fingers into Plaintiff’s face with aggression and hostility.”
Gross. But wait there’s more…
BREAKING: Man Sues CNN’s Don Lemon for Alleged Assault at Sag Harbor Bar https://t.co/7XFOMD0v1y
— Mediaite (@Mediaite) August 13, 2019
From The Daily Mail:
“That is when Hice ‘fled the bar’ and took five to ten minutes collecting himself before he was able to return inside, having recovered from the incident which he claims left him ‘shocked and humiliated’.
“Lemon was gone by that point, while Hice was left ’emotionally devastated by Mr. Lemon’s demeaning unprovoked and offensive assault’.
“A network rep said: ‘The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts.
“‘This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.’
“Hice, who was working as a bartender at The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack at the time of the alleged assault, shut down his Twitter account just before filing his lawsuit.
“The registered Republican, who just two months prior admitted to injuring his then-girlfriend when he hurled his keys at her in a domestic dispute, claims that he ‘found it increasingly more difficult to continue working at The Old Stove or socializing at all in the Hamptons.’
“He also alleged that many at Murf’s would reference the incident when they saw him at the bar.
“‘After the incident, customers who came into The Old Stove or saw Plaintiff out about town cheekily ordered lemon drops and laughed at Plaintiff’s expense,’ wrote Hice’s lawyer.
“‘Plaintiff has suffered tremendously as a result of Mr. Lemon’s actions. Following this incident, Plaintiff found himself withdrawn from friends and family, suffered feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt,’ states the complaint.
“It adds: ‘Plaintiff found himself unable to sleep and at times, and suffered from suicidal ideations.
“‘Although Plaintiff, a religious man, tried to find solace within his faith and the church, to this day he continues to suffer emotionally, mentally, and personally from the incident.’
“He also said that he cannot return to New York to work, something the 38-year-old man had hoped to continue doing for years.
“Hice lists ‘assault and battery and both ‘intentional’ and negligent emotional distress’ as his three causes of action in the case.”
Hice reportedly demanded $1.5 million from Lemon before he filed the lawsuit and is seeking damages for emotional pain and suffering after he claimed that the alleged assault left him with “feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt.”
I have no idea if any of this is true but this is happening at the same time that CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is embroiled in his “Fredo” debacle which did happen. A video of CNN’s Chris Cuomo went viral on Tuesday night that showed him threatening to throw a man down a flight of stairs after the man called him “Fredo.”
“I thought that’s who you were,” the man said to Cuomo.
“No, punk-a** b****es from the Right call me Fredo,” Cuomo responded. “My name is Chris Cuomo, I’m an anchor on CNN.”
“Fredo is from ‘The Godfather,’ he was that weak brother and they’re using it as an Italian aspersion,” Cuomo continued. “It’s like the ‘n-word’ for us.”
Cuomo later said, “You’re going to have a f***ing problem.”
The man responded, “What are you going to do about it?”
Cuomo responded: “I’ll f***ing ruin your shit. I’ll f***ing throw you down these stairs like a f***ing punk.”
The video went viral with President Trump weighing in on it, tweeting: “I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts. Totally lost it! Low ratings @CNN”
When it rains it pours crap at CNN it would seem. So much for professionalism. This is CNN!
VIDEO: Students Sign Petition To Ban White Figure In ‘Walk’ Signals – It’s ‘Oppressive’
Well, we have officially reached ‘peak stupidity’ on campuses. It took some doing to be this moronic but these students are up to the challenge. Campus Reform has a video out where Campus Correspondent Ethan Cai asks students at George Washington University if they’d be willing to sign a petition calling for banning the iconic white stick figure in “walk” signals because they are “oppressive.” Most of the students were more than happy to join the “inclusive” effort. So dumb it hurts.
This is the same university where students voted to “remove and replace” the university’s mascot, George the Colonial, which “is received as extremely offensive not only by students of the University, but the nation and world at large” because it “glorifies the act of systemic oppression,” a petition calling for its removal claimed. The measure was passed in March by 54% of the students who voted. They should not be attending George Washington University then… in fact, they are not fit for higher education at all.
From The Daily Wire:
“In an attempt to test how deep concerns about “offense” and “oppression” go at GW, Campus Reform went undercover to the university to see if students would sign a new petition, this time calling for the banning of white stick figures in walk signals.
“As we students cross the street, we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is okay to cross,” Campus Reform’s faux petition reads. “Many students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals of color, gender fluid individuals, and LGBTQA+ individuals, feel oppressed by this.” Students who sign the petition are supposedly letting the university know that they “vehemently urge the University to consider changing the crosswalk signs.”
“The result: many of the students and even one university faculty member are willing to put their signature on the phony petition. While some students seem to be on board because the alternatives provided by Campus Reform are “so cute” and “lit,” most in the video made a point of saying they can “absolutely” see how someone would be offended by the “white man” telling them what to do and felt that changing the sign helped promote “diversity.”
“One guy pushed back, however, saying he was “ideologically opposed” to the idea. Video below via Campus Reform:
“As for that petition calling for the replacement of George the Colonial, after declaring that the “negatively-charged figure of colonials has too deep a connection to colonization and glorifies the act of systemic oppression,” the students who signed it offered the university some alternatives, including “Hippos,” “Revolutionaries,” or “River horses.”‘
Hippos, y’all. Hippos.
I have never felt in the least oppressed by a white stick figure at a street crossing. Must be my white privilege showing. I have never been paralyzed by bone-chilling fear as a white iconic symbol tells me to get my butt across the street before I get hit by a car. What’s wrong with me? Like RedState says, “We’ve all been there.” Sheesh. Better yet, we can all just cross the street as we’ve always done and not get racist about a digital stick figure. Duh.
Only one student bucked the idea… just one. Bring on Sodom and Gomorrah.
My IQ drops just thinking about this idiocy. How college students devolved into such Marxist troglodytes is a question for the ages… or maybe just for American communists.
