I did not watch the Emmys this year and I was evidently joined by millions of Americans. I knew it would be a bash-fest against President Trump. The last thing I want to do after working all day is watch a bunch of self-important celebrities get their hate on for the president and our country. It appears I made a wise choice.
“Black-ish” actress Jenifer Lewis decided to make a statement by wearing a Nike metal-studded swoosh sweatshirt on the Emmys’ new gold carpet Monday night. It was obviously a sick and twisted message meant for President Trump and his supporters but it fell flat.
I’m sure she was standing in solidarity with Nike who chose the former quarterback and current social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick as the company’s new face for their “Just Do It” ad campaign.
Lewis wore a red-and-black sweatshirt with Nike emblazoned on her chest. She accented her black leggings and black-and-white pattern boots with a diamond bracelet and ring. If you ask me, that’s not exactly ‘down’ with the oppressed, if you get my drift.
Lewis claimed that she wore Nike “in support of Colin Kaepernick’s protest against police brutality and racial injustice,” referring to the quarterback’s controversy after starting the whole kneeling controversy during the National Anthem at NFL games.
“I want to speak to the millennials today to let them know they are not alone when they speak out,” said the 61-year-old Lewis. “We are not living in dark times. We are living in awakening times, and I am proud to be one of the leaders in the movement.”
But what Lewis didn’t count on was how all of this vitriol would backfire at the Emmys. They hit an all-time low and in more ways than just the ratings. It backfired gloriously.
Politics was the issue of the evening on the red carpet for the Emmys this year. As you would expect, there were Nazi jokes and endless Trump-bashing. There were even a couple of jabs at Roseanne Barr. And the hypocrisy was deep. One black actor even showed up in white face. I thought that was a political no-no? Guess not.
The ratings for the 70th Emmy Awards plummeted by ten percent in early ratings from last year. Ouch. That broke the record with a 7.4 household rating according to The Wrap.
The Emmys are far from alone. This is the new trend for award shows. Actors and actresses seem to think these shows are leftist political platforms for the Hollywood elite. Americans are sick of hyper-political bloviating from elitists. Award shows used to be entertainment, now they are just disgusting. The 2018 Oscars dropped 16% over 2017, and the Grammys fell 20% over the previous year.
From The Daily Wire:
“Last year, the 69th annual Emmys on CBS hosted by Stephen Colbert dipped 2.4 percent from the prior year to a new low, per Nielsen’s household ratings,” The Wrap reported. “In 2016, the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted Emmys broadcast on ABC fetched an 8.4 in these earliest-available TV ratings, which had set a historic low of its own at the time.”
“The Emmys, hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and Michael Che, including jokes like this:
“The only white people who thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”
“The Emmys were first held in 1949 … things were very different back then: We all agreed that Nazis were bad.”
“Roseanne was canceled by herself and then picked up by white nationalists.’”
Even with all that, last night was NBC’s highest-rated Monday since late 2015. The network pretty much tripled the overnight rating of its closest competition, CBS, which posted a 2.5. NBC’s 7.4 topped the combined ratings of the rest of the Big 4 broadcast nets combined by 23 percent. Think about that. It means the viewership on the major networks is simply pathetic.
Last year, at the 69th annual Emmys on CBS hosted by Stephen Colbert, the awards show dipped 2.4 percent from the prior year to a new low, per Nielsen’s household ratings. The trend seems to be because of politicized comics. They just aren’t funny anymore.
The 70th annual Emmys was a who’s who of leftist celebrities who were mostly there to admire each other. That’s all they can do because nobody wants to watch them much anymore. America is just not that into Hollywood these days.

Clooney Claims Trump Says To Fear Muslims & Strong Women, Instantly Regrets It
Since the second that Donald Trump was declared as our next president, liberals have not stopped complaining about the outcome, even after more than a year and a half with him in the White House. The loudest of the shrieking libs are Hollywood celebrities, actor George Clooney being one of the worst.
Clooney is a major advocate for Muslims and Islamic Americans, which is probably why he married one. He’s held his tongue recently, but has just resurfaced in a massive attack on our president that didn’t pan out too well for him.
Breitbart reports the details of Clooney quickly regretting his erroneous claim that Trump says to fear Muslims and strong women:
Nothing was off the table at Variety magazine’s Power of Women luncheon held in Beverly Hills on Friday, almost exactly a year since The New York Times and The New Yorker published accounts from dozens of women alleging sexual misconduct by the once-powerful movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. In his remarks before attendees, actor and immigration activist George Clooney admonished what he called the Trump administration’s culture of fear.
George Clooney, who announced himself to a packed ballroom at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons in Beverly Hills as “Amal’s husband,” quickly struck a serious tone, accusing the President Donald Trump of using fear to divide Americans.
“Fear of Muslims. Fear of immigrants. Fear of minorities. Fear of strong women,” George Clooney began. “And because our government needs us to be afraid, the question is, are we really scared of all the things that actually make America great? And if the answer is yes, then we’ll have history to answer to. Because these are the ideas that will define us for generations.”
“After all the jokes, and insults, and reality show frenzy, what will be remembered, what will stand the test of time is holding responsible these wolves in wolves’ clothing,” Clooney continued.
“When you call an entire religion your enemy, you might very well make an enemy out of an entire religion. When you tell a whole race of people that you value them less, you can’t be surprised when they question your values,” the Ocean’s Eleven star added. “When you tell women that coming forward to testify about their abuse is a joke, don’t be shocked when they’re standing on your lawn, laughing on Nov. 7.”
In addition to criticizing the Trump administration, the actor lavished praise on anti-2nd Amendment activist and March for Our Lives leader Emma Gonzalez. “She made us listen to her heart,” he said. “A heart that believes that we as a country can be so much better. A heart that called for adults to act like adults so children don’t have to.”
Gonazelz, wiping away tears, said to the women in her own speech: “You know that you are forces to be reckoned with. You can and have inspired peace and understanding and most importantly right now, you can inspire your audience to vote. Now more than ever, women need to continue to rise up.”
In a commanding 15-minute speech, actress Natalie Portman addressed the underrepresented women in all industries and laid out guidelines to incite change, such as donating to Time’s Up, opting against depicting violence against women in films, and hiring women for positions they’re not typically considered for. She was being recognized for her humanitarian efforts in co-founding Time’s Up, a legal defense fund that was created following the rise of the #MeToo movement to address and combat inequality in the workplace.
“Be embarrassed if everyone in your workplace looks like you,” Portman said.
Portman said Weinstein is “still free” because “our culture protects the perpetrators of sexual violence, not its victims.” She added that the Time’s Up defense fund has served more than 3,500 people from “workers at McDonald’s to prison guards to military personnel to women in our own industry who have faced gender-based harassment, coercion and assault.”
The event, presented by Lifetime, with sponsors such as Audi, Morocco Oil, and The Venetian Resort, honored Tiffany Haddish, who spoke about the non-profit The Unusual Suspects Theatre Company and Participant Media CEO David Linde for helping to make female-focused films from Roma to RBG.
Transgender Steamrolls Biological Women to Win World Cycling Championship
Dear Women, how do you like your world now? This is just another great thing brought to us from political correctness. Look at what the democrats have done to this world.
This is absolutely ridiculous and a affront to women and women’s sports.
From Louder With Crowder:
One of the up-and-coming trends on the left is trannies getting a stranglehold on sports. Gender-bending guys beating the bejeezus out of ladies in MMA. Transitioning girls on the juice competing against girls not on ‘roids. All in a days work for loopy lefties.
Now, there’s guys lapping the ladies in world championship bike races:
A biological male who identifies as a transgender woman won a women’s world championship cycling event on Sunday.
Rachel McKinnon, a professor at the College of Charleston, won the women’s 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles.
McKinnon celebrated the victory on Twitter, writing: “First transgender woman world champion…ever.”
“We cannot have a woman legally recognized as a trans woman in society, and not be recognized that way in sports,” McKinnon told USA Today.
“Focusing on performance advantage is largely irrelevant because this is a rights issue. We shouldn’t be worried about trans people taking over the Olympics. We should be worried about their fairness and human rights instead.”
In other words, screw biology. Let’s make all our decisions based on feels instead.
There’s a reason why we have divisions and weight classes in sports. Otherwise, 250-pound ex-cons named Butch would be getting into the octagon with 5’4” soccer moms who “thought this would be fun.” Divisions and weight classes are there to make sure nobody has an unfair advantage. Like a guy in lady clothes steamrolling over biologically inferior females on a bicycle.
Yep, we have to completely ignore the bulge in “her” tights and herald her as the peak of female athleticism. Because “rights.” The real women who gave it their all and pedaled their keisters off will just have to deal with it. Pathetic.
