D-List Celebs End Year With Parting Shots Against President Trump

Trump Derangement Syndrome is a disease that transgresses borders of culture, success, and economic comfort. You can find it as easily in your local Facebook groups as you can in Washington, D.C. You can find it at the corner barber shop and you can find it on the pages of The New York Times.

But while it may be obnoxious when THAT cousin starts spewing nonsense at the Thanksgiving table, there’s something even worse about minor celebrities using their limited fame as a soapbox upon which to bash President Trump and his supporters. It’s bad enough that we have to hear this crap from a Hollywood icon like Robert de Niro; do we really need to hear it from Kathy Griffin?

On the last days of 2019, here are three Hollywood has-beens who just had to get in one more shot at Trump before ringing in the new year. Get your barf bag ready.

George Takei

Best known for the role of Sulu on Star Trek, absurdly-gay actor George Takei has turned Twitter into his personal rocket launcher from which to lob bombs at President Trump. It was perhaps inevitable that he would close out the year with one more shot across the bow.

“The thing about Trump voters is that they do not even realize they are enabling the desolation of our Republic,” Takei said. “They somehow think they are preserving America, but in fact they are helping destroy it. And that is a tragedy of enormous scope.”

Well, George, you’re right about one thing: We definitely don’t “realize” that we’re destroying the Republic. You should probably make a New Years’ Resolution to figure out the difference between opinion and fact, though. And maybe a second one – to stay off Twitter.

Linda Ronstadt

No one can disparage Linda Ronstadt’s career, as she was one of the defining female singers of the 1970s, and her mastery of the craft speaks for itself. But TDS affects the talented and the untalented alike, sadly. And in an interview with CNN this week, Ronstadt demonstrated that she’s come down with a brutal case of it.  

“Some of my family in Tucson are Republicans,” she confided to Anderson Cooper. “I have to be careful because we’ve had so much taken away from us by this administration that I’m not willing to let him take my family relationships away. The parts that were Republican were fairly rational Republicans. We don’t have that in that current White House.”

One wonders if Ronstadt could name one specific thing that President Trump has “taken away” from her or her family.

Cooper, of course, skipped that question in favor of this one: “I’ve read that you have read a lot about the Weimar Republic in Germany, and you sort of see parallels between then and now.”

“Great parallels,” she replied. “I mean the intelligentsia of Berlin and literati and all artists were just doing their thing, and as Hitler rose to power, there were a lot of chances to stop him, and they didn’t speak out. The industrial complex thought they could control him once they got him in office, and of course, he was not controllable. By the time he got established, he put his own people in place and stacked the courts and did what he had to do to consolidate his power, and we got Hitler. He destroyed Germany, destroyed centuries of intellectual history, forward and backward. People like Beethoven, Goethe, and Thomas Mann became jokes. They became Nazi laughing stocks.”

“I think a lot of people would be surprised to hear comparisons between what happened then and now,” said Cooper.

Well, not regular viewers of CNN.

“If you read the history, you won’t be surprised,” she continued. “It is exactly the same. You find a common enemy for everybody to hate. I was sure that Trump was going to get elected the day he announced. I said he’s going to—it is going to be like Hitler and the Mexicans are the new Jews. And sure enough, that is what he delivered.”

Riiight.

Chelsea Handler

Like fellow D-List comedian Kathy Griffin, Handler has turned the Trump presidency into an excuse to forgo “comedy” and turn her fame into a political platform. Handler has yet to pose for controversial art that imagines the beheading of the president, but instead has decided that her true enemy is white women who vote Republican.

“I hope the 53% of white women who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 realize the damage he has caused to people who are not white,” she said. “I hope in 2020 they can think about what it’s like to not be them.”

Yep, you really have to pity black Americans in the Trump era. How they are coping with record-low unemployment levels, rising wages, and absolutely no reduction in their rights, privileges, or liberties, we’ll never understand. Thankfully, Chelsea Handler is here to remind us (and, presumably, them) how terrible things actually are.

We’re tempted to hope that 2020 brings us a much-needed cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome and its ugly symptoms. Unfortunately, we have a feeling that the results of the next election are only going to exacerbate the pandemic.

Oh well. Worth it.

  1. What an extraordinary airhead , she has stayed up nights building a non existent case of similarity to please her other airheads without any clue as to what reality is .

  2. If you actors were worth 1 1/1,000 th of what you think you’re worth then and only then will many others listen to you. Have you ever wondered why the kids movies do so well, no politics, we can actually enjoy going to see it. I only go to movies that have none political actors whereas I used to go to many of them, it was my hobby, I think 🤔.

  3. These people are desperate to have someone read their name and think they’re relevant in some way. Sorry to let them know, but they’re not. And no one in Hollywood has an opinion that is any more valid than mine or any other “normal” person’s. I think they’re all stupid, indoctrinated, useful idiots – sad that they can’t see the forest for the trees. Oh, well. May the rest of us win the 2020 vote again.

  4. Does Linda Rondstat not realize that what the Nazis did was take over a country that had
    just lost a war and eliminated their monarchy with no history or experience in any kind of
    democratic republic whatsoever. I don’t know if they had a constitution to work with, or
    not. However, several “isms” started vying for power in Germany in the twenties – the
    Socialists, the communists, the National Socialists (Nazis), etc. Hitler condemned them
    all including the democrats. When the Great Depression began, it hit Germany hard because
    of the state of their economy and the war “reparations”, etc. Hitler, and the boys, came out
    on top by, among other things, holding off on improving conditions until they could be seen
    as the only answer to Germany’s problems. Therefore, no opposition to the Nazis, no other
    political parties, nothing like a constitution, no dissent whatsoever. The Nazis hid the fact
    that they were stealing from certain groups. If you opted to leave the country, you had to
    leave your belongings and wealth behind. Marlene Deitrich !!
    Now, after years of the Great Society, the welfare society, the government “plantation” etc.
    we have a president who wants to return to the basics of our constitution. HORRORS !!
    This is especially uncomfortable to those who believe you have a right to be “Pro Choice”
    on the abortion issue and the “logic” of Roe vs Wade. While the media won’t ask them
    why the hell they weren’t aborted, they scream their pro murder position. When you have
    a political party that has stooped to the point of allowing anybody to come in to our
    country and set up residency, receive benefits, and possibly vote, that is so transparent
    as to creating a voting. constituency that is not in the country legally. When you have so
    many people who refer to the constitution as a “living document” that they can change
    at their whim, or when it is politically to their advantage, what is next?
    Now, you have a president who is pro constitution. The people he appoints to the courts
    not only speak the words of the oath they take, but act on what is said. The constitution
    puts limits on government actions, something the Nazis would not have. This president
    will go to the courts when their is an issue at hand. He has won in most cases and
    abided by decisions rendered. Would a Nazi like Hitler do that? How a about a radical
    left-wing looney posing as a liberal or “Progressive”? The current impeachment actions
    have gotten to the point where there is no constitutional provision for the actions taken!
    The speaker of the house is now “going to wait until SHE can decide whether a Senate
    trial will be fair” after the kangaroo court impeachment hearings in the House. The Senate
    sets those rules!! Anybody that compares what is going on in this country with what led
    up to the Nazi take-over of Germany has not read a history book, or viewed the many
    films and programs on channels like the History Channel. Linda Ronstadt would surprise
    me is she can spell “History”. Now, we are in a time when those people who want and
    expect our public officials to go by the constitution are looked at as radical by the very
    people who are, in fact, radical. The news media accepts, and uses, the term
    “Progressive” for people who are in fact anything but. If you disagree with them and
    voice or publish your opinion, you are shouted down or labelled as stupid or ignorant.
    These people will shout down or attack others with differing opinions or ideas. People
    who call themselves “Antifa”, are in fact Fascists in every way. Nothing could be more
    UN-AMERICAN!! Yet, many in our media willingly join in with the dialogue when the
    very first amendment that protects them is being contorted and contaminated.
    I think this election that is so near is going to really shock some people. I believe that
    border security, fake news, phoney show trials and/or hearings, political positions that
    are unconstitutional and radical are NOT partisan issues. Those that are taken up by
    the electorate as important will surprise a good number of people — and it is about time!

  5. What did you expect from INSANELY STUPID Left Wing Radicals with TDS? . . . Logic and Truth? Common SENSE?!? Thouest Doth expecteth MUCHETH from these empty headed DOLTS. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  6. Who cares what they had to say? They are an ignorant, overpaid bunch of _________ you fill in the blank.. Their body of work is not worth listening to or watching. They believe in Communism for you and me but for themselves they like Capitalism and the big bucks they command. I cannot stand their noxious drivel about the Leader of the USA. They disgust me. If I had time I would tell you how I really feel.

  7. Sadly…..There are ‘so many” Americans, that don’t have the brains, God gave a gnat! They “prove that”, every time they try to get “Political”! They simply don’t understand, with their limited , & quite low IQ, that America, doesn’t care what their political attitudes are, beccuse they are un-educated, re the Constitution, & the ultimate sacrifices that have been made by so many Men, & women over the past decades, to defend their freedoms!

    Why do “WE” support them, & give them a “very above average” income? They insult the intelligence of Americans everywhere, by their Anti-American speeches, & comments…..{ Oscars, Golden Globes, etc.}…They just don’t have the mental capacity to understand the most basic, & common sacrifices freely given them by our Military!…..{ Boycott their work, & see how that “suits them”!}

  8. SPOCK!
    Yes Captain?
    Put Zoolou in the small space craft and send it to
    to the next plant we pass, he is no longer a team
    player. Let him find happiness elsewhere.
    Aye, Aye Captain, as you wish.
