HOLLYWEIRD: Anti-Trump Celebrities HOST COUNTER State of the Union
Hollywood celebrities and liberal elites turned out for a counter State of the Union Monday evening, offering a blistering “response” to the President’s joint address to Congress and the American people one day before he delivers the speech.
According to Fox News, the star-studded event -dubbed the People’s State of the Union- was hosted by radical left-wing actor Mark Ruffalo, who called for all anti-Trump activists to join the “resistance” movement against the President’s “racist” agenda.
“We’re going to set our sights to continue that work in the next year, and strengthen our bonds and commitments to each other, for long after the Trump era comes to its rightful end,” said Ruffalo. “We ain’t stopping with Trump, OK?”
Hollywood documentarian Michael Moore also slammed Trump and his supporters, saying “We must remove and replace the system and the culture that gave us Trump in the first place […] We must also cleanse our American soul of our white male privilege.”
The three-hour-long anti-Trump event was hosted by far-left organizations such as Planned Parenthood and the Women’s March.
HOLLYWEIRD: Crazed Rob Reiner Says Trump ‘THREATENS’ Global Democracy
Hollywood filmmaker Rob Reiner continued his all-out war with President Trump Tuesday, accusing the Commander-in-Chief of posing a direct “threat” to the United States and other “democracies throughout the world.”
The hyper-liberal celebrity trashed Trump on social media, saying his “denial” to accept Russian election interference was posing a direct threat to American democracy; adding the US no longer has “a patriot in the White House.”
“Once again our entire intelligence and law enforcement communities have unequivocally stated that Russia has attacked and continues to attack our democracy and democracies throughout the world. Trump’s continual denial threatens US. We don’t have a patriot in the Whitehouse,” Reiner tweeted.
