Hollywood liberals tried their best to outshine President Donald Trump on Monday by throwing themselves a political bash at The Town Hall in New York City. Calling it “The People’s State of the Union,” celebrities like Michael Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Amy Schumer, and Wanda Sykes took to the stage to pretend they were revolutionaries in the middle of a battle for the country’s soul. The historic event aired live on…the internet. Ah well, you can’t sell soap when there’s literally no interest.
These celebrities need no actual evidence that people care about their opinions, though, so they didn’t let America’s collective yawn keep them from the stage. Ruffalo, who plays the Incredible Hulk when he’s not shilling for the Bernie Sanderses of the world, was the emcee of the evening. He kicked things off by praising those who have participated in the so-called “Resistance.”
“We’re going to set our sights to continue that work in the next year and strengthen our bonds and commitments to each other, long after the Trump era comes to its rightful end,” he said. “We ain’t stopping with Trump, OK?”
Ruffalo was followed by the gargantuan Moore, who is best known for making socialist propaganda under the guise of “documentary filmmaking.” He told the audience that he was looking forward to the 2018 midterms, which would herald “the widespread massive removal of Republicans from the House and Senate, the likes of which this country has never seen.”
“We must remove and replace the system and the culture that gave us Trump in the first place,” he said. “We must also cleanse our American soul of our white male privilege.”
We get a little nervous when liberals start talking about “cleansing” the nation of Trump supporters, but then again, what else would you expect from a communist creep like Moore? His rhetoric would be dangerous if anyone actually took him seriously. Thankfully, outside of a handful of masked Antifa soldiers and rabid UC Berkeley feminists, we’re pretty sure that’s not the case.
There was a time when an event like this would have pissed us off. There was a time when it really bothered us to see Hollywood liberals using their unrelated, oversized soapboxes to persuade Americans that THEY knew what was best for us. Now, though, we mostly see this for the laughable folly that it is. The public knows these people are just a bunch of overpaid gasbags who are so removed from our average American culture and our average American economic lifestyle that they might as well be living on a different planet. Their opposition to the Trump presidency only makes it that much stronger.
