We’re not sure whether he cleared this statement with producers and — more importantly — sponsors, but one NBC personality has dropped a gauntlet with the American Public.
It turns out there are Jimmy “Tears-from-a-clone” Kimmel, and Stephen ‘I was funny once, honest’ Colbert aren’t the only ones still doing a late night show.
Maybe you’ve heard of ‘Seth Meyers’. Then again, maybe not. Ratings for the late shows are getting to the point where they can address each viewer by name.
Undeterred by ratings, he’s following his typical Hollywood instincts and riding the hate-Trump wave. Good call, Seth. Choose Hollywood’s moralizing over Trump. Alienate half the nation. Because Hollywood isn’t a dumpster fire at all, right? #AwarenessFail.
Seth cheered Eminem for his ‘courageous’ stand against President Trump. Because 40-something-year-old Eminem just became EXACTLY the kind of political lemming that 20-something Eminem raged against.
Rage in favor of the political status quo, you rebel you.
We’ve got your ‘moral high ground’, right here:
The rest of America was scandalized by just how far-reaching and normalized the sexual harassment has become among Hollywood Elitists. (Maybe we should have listened more carefully when Cory Feldman was trying to raise the alarm.)
Seth made a proclamation to his viewers. He said he was ‘inspired’ by Eminem.
So tonight I say to any fans of this show who are also big fans of Donald Trump: it’s time to make a decision guys. Get off the fence. Do you support him or do you support this show that constantly mocks and denigrates everything about him? I know it’s a tough call. I know I’m not much of a rapper, but here goes. My name is Seth and I’m here to say: If you like Trump, go away.
Oh really? We have to choose between another Hollywood Clone, (During ‘Weinstein week’) and a President that stood up and reminded us — in a speech just today — that ‘Parents, not bureaucrats know best’ or that ‘we won’t worship Government, we worship God’?
Gee… what a ‘tough’ choice.
For his sponsors, we predict this reaction:
In fact, if you wanted to get his attention, you could go to their social media pages and tell them they are now officially sponsoring a show that has insulted half of America. Maybe ask if insulting half of the American marketplace is their official position?
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
