WATCH: Remember When BILL MAHER Said Trump Was The Son Of An Ape? HE WASN’T FIRED!!! Here’s Why

Oh really? Is that what we’re doing now?

Published

Roseanne Barr got bad news when she learned that her show was canceled over her Tweet that targeted Valerie Jarrett (who?) and the entire incident has sparked a national outrage that forces the public to address a major double standard in which comedians from the left and right are treated after saying things that are subjectively offensive to those who wish to complain about everything. The major problem is when things become one-sided and those on one end of politics are considered offensive while those on opposing sides who say the same thing are not.

Roseanne compared Jarrett to a character from the Planet of the Apes movie, mostly based on her looks and similarities to a female character from the movie who has that childish looking short bangs bowl-headed haircut and made a reference to the Muslim religion. Surely some folks who are not fans of Roseanne were offended, however those who know Roseanne’s dark humor and how she’s sometimes offensive surely understood this was just an everyday thing for someone who tends to be on the more offensive side of comedy at times. Offensive comedy seems to be under attack because people keep begging to be offended and then complain about it right after, even if they’re not fans of the person they’re claiming was offensive.

It wasn’t that long ago that show host Bill Maher was trashing President Donald Trump and using language similar to that of Roseanne, but people who were fans of his clamored on about him being hilarious. Those who disliked his comments simply could not care less and they moved on with their lives. The major difference is that people who disliked Roseanne’s comments have wanted her to be fired and her show was canceled. Bill Maher didn’t lose much after his remarks, so the double standard is quite obvious.

President Trump filed a lawsuit against Maher, but decided to drop it. It was simply a warning shot for Maher to watch himself and remember that he’s messing with the President of the United States.

Roseanne fans want Maher fired because he made similar comments.

Fox News reports: “Roseanne” fans have called on HBO to fire “Real Time” host Bill Maher in response to the comedian’s jokes that President Trump was part orangutan.

ABC quickly canceled the successful “Roseanne” reboot Tuesday hours after its star, Roseanne Barr, posted a racist tweet about former President Obama’s aide Valerie Jarrett. The tweet said Jarrett, who is African-American and born in Iran, is like the “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.” Barr apologized for the tweet before her show was canceled. The next day, she appeared to blame the prescription pill Ambien for the tweet.

Following ABC’s announcement, Charlie Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, a right-wing nonprofit group, tweeted, “Wait, Bill Maher makes comparisons to Trump being a gorilla all the time? They get classified as ‘jokes’ by the media and he is of course allowed to keep his show and not have his life ruined. The difference? Bill Maher is a liberal, Roseanne is a free-thinking Trump supporter.”

However, some social media users pointed out that Trump sued Maher after he made a joke on Jay Leno’s late-night talk show that he would “offer $5 million to Donald Trump that he can donate to a charity of his choice” if he could prove his father was not an orangutan. Maher joked Trump appeared to be an orangutan because they both had similar hair color, Reuters reported. Trump withdrew the lawsuit against Maher eight weeks after filing it.

Social media users also pointed out that Maher’s show “Politically Incorrect” was dropped by ABC in 2002 following comments he made about the Sept. 11. 2001 terror attacks. The comedian argued that “the labeling of terrorists as cowards was hypocritical, and that we have been the cowards, lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away,” Bustle reported.

Bustle noted Maher’s name was trending on Twitter and was mentioned more than 54,000 times. Maher has not immediately commented on the backlash.

He came under fire in June 2017 after tweeting, “This [North] Korean thing is getting tense! I mean, I think it is, I’m on vaca. The ladies at my nail salon are freaking out, that’s what I know!”

Maher was also criticized a month earlier when he called himself a “house n—-r” on his HBO show in June 2017.

Maher apologized for the expletive and HBO later removed his comment from future airings of the episode calling it “inexcusable.”

So what will it be? Will Americans fight against the obvious double standard? Will the entertainment industry stop being one-sided? Will people who keep getting offended stop acting like children because they don’t like what someone says?

First Video of Latest Trump Star Vandal Swinging Pickaxe Shows What Happened – Spread Like Wildfire

Published

on

TMZ is now reporting that the LAPD has released the first video and has made an arrest in connection with the unhinged destruction of President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week. In it, a man used a pickaxe to unleash his intense frustration and anger at the president and shred the star to pieces.

The suspect, who has been identified as 24-year-old Austin Clay, was arrested on Wednesday and released early Thursday morning on bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s online records. A department spokesman later said he had been held on bail of $20,000 on a charge of felony vandalism. It wasn’t immediately clear who posted bail for Mr. Clay but unsubstantiated rumors were circulating that the money came from a gofundme page which was set up right after the arrest.

In this latest incident, LAPD later confirmed that they received a call around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning claiming that someone had taken a pickaxe to President Trump’s Hollywood star. The police later confirmed that the vandal had pulled a pickax out of a guitar case and proceeded to smash the star which is located on the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard.

Here is more on this via Hot Air:

“It’s a victory for La Résistance, one supposes, but mainly just another demonstration of empty nihilism. Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got attacked by a vandal with a pickaxe this morning, the latest in a series of attempts to deface the installation. This attempt was a little more complete than others:

President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed Wednesday morning by a man with a pickax that witnesses say he concealed in a guitar case, police said.

Officers were called around 3:30 a.m. to the star’s location on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue, where they found a small pile of rubble in place of the star that Trump received in January 2007 for his role in the NBC show “The Apprentice.”

The suspect later turned himself in to Beverly Hills police, after having conducted the vandalism in full view of a number of witnesses:

Even at in the pre-dawn hours, there were a number of witnesses to the destruction, including two security guards and a Walgreens worker who was on her way to work.

“I just seen a guy going to town on, I guess, the ground or whatever,” Patricia Cox said. “I didn’t know what was going on. …

A man turned himself in at the Beverly Hills Police Department at about 4:30 a.m. in connection with the destroyed star.

Trump’s star had to be replaced after being vandalized in October 2016 by a man dressed as a construction worker. James Otis used a pix ax and a sledgehammer then, and later pleaded no contest to felony vandalism.

Since Trump announced his candidacy and his subsequent election, the star has been a magnet for visitors unhappy with the current political climate. It has been defaced by tourists and dogs, had a model of a border wall built around it, and covered with “I resist” stickers.

All of which make perpetrators feel good about themselves, and … well, that’s just about it. All of these attacks, on a sidewalk or on other such locations, are the political equivalent of masturbation. It doesn’t even have the political impact of an honest, legal protest, which requires at least some coherent thought and rhetoric. Instead of mindless lust, it’s mindless rage, directed at an object no one really cares about except the people who will have to pay to have it repaired. And repaired and replaced it inevitably will be, which makes this exercise entirely pointless except for the revenue the city will get from the fines it will impose on the perpetrator.

But hey, at least the perp didn’t have to do any real work, like make an argument or organize to change the status quo. Probably because he’s incapable of either, frankly.”

What is wrong with these people? It’s okay to not agree with the president, or have voted for Hillary Clinton instead of him, and express your own opinion about what he’s doing in office, but it’s unacceptable for an adult to do that by vandalizing. What makes it worse is that in doing so, he’s supported by many others who somehow accept this as a good expression of speech and allegedly financially support him in doing so. That, combined with the notoriety he receives from it, is a winning combination for attention deprived activists.

Bail handouts or not, until some of these vandals and anti-Trump attackers are locked up for pulling stunts like this, things won’t stop. Maybe if all these so-called “resist” people focused on what they could do for their own lives to improve them, rather than blaming all their issues on Trump being president, they would find meaning in their life, rather than lurking around in the middle of the night destroying public property.

Hillary’s Big TV Sitcom Debut Coming To CBS This Fall With An Infuriating Show Theme

“It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse…”

Published

on

Hillary Clinton is set to be a guest-star who will star as herself when she makes an appearance on a major sitcom. The show will also feature two other former secretaries of the state. It’s the show on CBS titled Madam Secretary and Hillary will be on the show along with Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell. They will play themselves on the show, which might be infuriating to some people as not everyone appears to be a fan of Hillary Clinton thanks to all the alleged scandals she’s been involved in.

It appears as though it might only be a single episode, but the fact that Clinton, the most scandalous of the three former secretaries, would be playing herself. People might wonder if part of her debut will show her deleting emails one at a time.  Will the show go into what happened with Benghazi? Will the show discuss Clinton having the Democratic nominee ripped out of Bernie Sanders heart? Although, that part is ironic because socialist Sanders learned what it felt like to have something he worked for taken and given to someone else.

Is Hillary hoping to have the same success on the big screen that Roseanne did? Not sure that will happen considering the number of people who are very upset with Clinton and her allegations.

The fictional secretary of state of CBS’ Madam Secretary will turn to three former real-life holders of the post when the show begins its fifth season this fall.

Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright will appear as themselves in the episode, set to air Sunday, Oct. 7. The trio filmed their cameos on July 11, Madam Secretary‘s first week back in production.

“We’re delighted to have these three former secretaries of state be part of our season premiere,” said series creator and executive producer Barbara Hall. “It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse both in and behind the scenes.”

Added executive producer Lori McCreary: “Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling. And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle.”

In the episode, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) asks Albright, Powell and Clinton for advice on a delicate matter.

Albright served as secretary of state from 1997-2001 under President Bill Clinton and was the first woman to hold the post. She has appeared on Madam Secretary once before, guest-starring early in season two. She also has played herself on Parks and Recreation and Gilmore Girls.

Powell was President George W. Bush’s secretary of state from 2001-05. The former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had an uncredited cameo on JAG in 1997.

Clinton served under President Barack Obama as secretary of state from 2009-13. She did a cameo on Broad City in 2016 and appeared opposite her Saturday Night Live portrayer, Kate McKinnon, in 2015.”

Good thing it’s just a cameo because I’m not sure Hillary’s health would hold up with the brutal schedule that some actors go through. Hours of makeup, multiple takes, and that doesn’t even include walking up and down steps in foreign countries. On that note, it might include an updated wardrobe to help get Hillary out of those pantsuits and muumuus.

Keep your eyes peeled for this episode as it will likely go viral once commentators pick apart the pieces worth sharing on news outlets and social media.

If you’re wondering about Roseanne’s success, then here’s an excerpt from Deadline: “The ratings records keep coming for the debut of ABC’s Roseanne revival last week. After setting a new record for the largest-ever total viewer Live+3 lift, the sitcom’s Season 10 opener has scored TV’s largest-ever Total Viewer L+7 increase for any single telecast on any network with a big +8.81 million viewer lift over its L+SD tally. That topped the previous high,+7.86 million gain for the 9/25/17 debut of ABC’s new drama The Good Doctor. After seven days of delayed viewing, the audience of the Roseanne premiere has grown to 27.26 million total viewers (from 18.45 million in Live+Same Day).”

Hillary probably won’t come anywhere close to getting numbers like these. In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of the show Madam Secretary, so maybe it’s not that popular anyway. Having Hillary on the show now seems like nothing more than a gimmick to pick up some viewers.
