I've been trying to think of a funny way to open this blog for like 15 minutes now and I'm starting to get pissed off at myself for blocking up so I'm just gonna shoot from the hip and blog like how I speak....without thinking.
Trump has said and done a lot of things to make people upset. The dude just doesn't give a fuck about what people think and says what he truly feels. I understand entirely why people hate him so much. But in a way you almost have to respect what he's done, even if you hate him. Like if you wrote a movie about a crazy billionaire who basically did everything you're not supposed to do leading up to an election becoming President every producer in Hollywood would laugh you out of the building because that movie would suck and nobody would believe the ending. Yet somehow it happened in real life. That is absolutely insane.
The dude seemingly shot himself in the foot time, after time and still ended up in the White House. That is truly remarkable.
It's like if you went out on a first date and ate with your hands, farted constantly, called her the C word, talked about your exes, spilled a beer on her, hit on the waitress, and didn't pay yet still somehow got the chick to sleep with you. That's basically what happened with the election.
Like I despise the New York Yankees and everything about them. But even as a die-hard Red Sox fan it's hard to deny all that they've accomplished and I can respect the greatness they've acchieved. I still fucking hate everyhing about them, but I understand why people like them.
It's kind of like that with Trump. I can see why people either love or hate him. I can't lie I used to not care about the stuff he'd get blasted for saying just because it didn't impact me directly. Plus I don't care about politics. All I really care about is sports, music, getting a girl and a dog and finding a way to pay for everything. I live in America, I don't have to worry about trying to immigrate to a place I already live. I'm a man, I don't have a pussy that can get grabbed and I don't have to worry about what bathroom I'm going to use unless I'm driving home after chipotle but that's more about making sure I don't ruin a pair of jeans.
But now with the inauguration less than two weeks away the reality of the fact that Donald J. Trump is going to be the President of the United States of America is setting in.
That is what brings me to last night. Last night at the Gloden Globes Meryl Streep accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment" and during her speech she talked about the important role entertainers play in society and also bashed Donald Trump, mainly his behavior and immigration policies.
If you aren't going to watch the whole speech that's fine this excerpt is really all you need to see.
"They gave me three seconds to say this. So an actor's only job is to enter the lives of people who are different from us and let you feel what that feels like, and there were many, many, many powerful performances this year that did exactly that, breathtaking, compassionate work. But there was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hook in my heart not because it was good. It was — there was nothing good about it, but it was effective, and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart, and I saw it, and I still can't get it out of my head because it wasn't in a movie. It was real life. And this instinct to humiliate when it's modeled by someone in the public platform by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody's life because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing.
Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence insights violence. When the powerful use definition to bully others, we all lose. Ok. Go on with that thing. OK. "
Shockingly, President-Elect Trump did not like what she had to say about him and like he always seems to do, took to twitter and said the following:
Can someone get me some oven mitts to handle that hot take?
Overrated? A 19 time Oscar nominee is overrated? Michael Scott's favorite actress is overrated? Dude come on, you gotta be better than that.
Calling a celebrity who doesn't like you overrated is like when I get in an argument with someone and they call me fat. I know I've already won, when you have to resort to such low hanging fruit the battle is over. Have a big brain for me one time, Donny. Be pissed at her for calling you out in front of the entire country, in fact you should be. But to call the woman who is pretty much across the board seen as one of the greatest actresses of all time overrated is such a bad look and makes you look like a loser. Be better. Out of all the outlandishthings Donald has said this may take the cake. Meryl Streep is overrated. Wow.
Does Donald Trump think pizza is overrated too? Is falling in love overrated? Is the feeling of finally sneezing when it was building up for a long time and you didn't think it'd ever come out overrated? Where does the madness stop?
P.S. Trump is definitely one of those ass holes that trys to say the Beatles are overrated. If I'm talking music with someone and they say that they automatically lose all credibility.
