I very seldom watch award shows because of their narcissistic, self-indulgent, look how great we are attitude while celebrities kiss each other’s rear ends. I purposely did not watch last night’s Emmys because I knew what they were going to be like. Since Trump got elected, all of Hollywood and the media has been affected by what is known as Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), an airborne illness that affects and fills the mind with false, ill-conceived, misleading, harmful, hateful images of our president which there is no known cure. I have never seen so much hate coming from people who constantly preach against hate as I have with these people. Only true supporters of the president are immune from TDS.
Last night’s Emmys were a perfect example of TDS on display. Trump was the Mocked-in-Chief again and again, from the opening song and on and on. Hosted by Stephen Colbert who I never thought was funny ever since he bombed notoriously at the White House correspondents dinner during Bush’s term, it was full on one blast at trump after another. In fact Colbert owes his career to Trump. Right before Trump was elected Colbert’s show was so low in the ratings that they were about to cancel him. As soon as Trump was elected he started right in with the bashing and his career took off. Colbert spent 5 minutes mocking Trump in his opening monologue.
Television’s glittering Emmys placed politics front and center on Sunday, lavishing “The Handmaid’s Tale” with awards for its bleak portrait of an authoritarian America. Host Stephen Colbert set the tone in his opening monologue. “However you feel about the president, and you do feel about the president, you can’t deny that every show was influenced by Donald Trump in some way,” he said.
Alec Baldwin won an Emmy for his portrayal of Trump on SNL which I think is terrible and stupid. The former contestant on America’s Got Talent known as the Dancing Trump does a much better impersonation than Baldwin. Baldwin should be more concerned about his family, particularly his daughter. Baldwin is so abusive toward his daughter and he has the nerve to throw stones. Remember when he called his 12-year-old daughter a PIG! Baldwin is another one who should be thankful for Trump for saving his fading career.
Dolly Parton reunited with her “9 to 5” co-stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda onstage at Sunday’s 2017 Emmy Awards.
During the segment, “Grace and Frankie” nominees Tomlin and Fonda, both outspoken liberals, took aim at Donald Trump by comparing him to the villainous “9 to 5” boss played by Dabney Coleman, “Back in 1980, in our movie, we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” Fonda said on stage. We all know about Fonda’s traitorous history so we don’t have to go there now.
Tomlin followed by quipping, “And in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical lying hypocritical bigot.” Another lib suffering from TDS as Trump is none of those things. Parton appeared uncomfortable by her former co-star’s barbs and I’m sure she was as Dolly is more conservative and it wouldn’t surprise me if she voted for Trump. The funny thing is these women work in an industry controlled by sexists.
This was the third straight decline for TV’s big night with the FOX broadcast and Andy Samberg hosted 2015 Emmys and last year’s show on ABC respectively now in the third and second low place. And maybe that’s good.
Keep politics out of the Emmys.. music awards…Hollywood…sports …This is why I don’t watch Any of this stuff anymore.
