Celebrities have entrenched themselves in the liberal left. They use their platform to trash President Trump, Christians and any other conservative movement that gets in their way.
But it wasn’t the hosts conservative bashing that was the highlight of the night. In fact, the most amazing part of the show didn’t happen until almost the end.
The night turned in a whole new direction when a 96-year old woman took the stage.
Betty White received a standing ovation Monday night at the 2018 Emmys before her speech that collectively melted hearts around the world.
Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin—both of whom are nominees for their roles on the show—introduced White as “the greatest of all time.”
McKinnon said, “There are very few people who were around then that are still working in television today, and we are lucky to be joined by one of them tonight.”
White has won eight Emmy awards and nominated 24 times, and, according to McKinnon, “at 96-years-old she still thinks about those Emmys she didn’t win. And she’s still bitter.”
In her speech, the Golden Girls star started it off with a joke. “I’m just going to quit while I’m ahead,” she laughed.
White told an anecdote about being called the “First Lady of Television” by a passerby, but that observer later told her daughter, “She’s that old, she was the first one, way, way back.”
She said, “Little did I dream then that I would be here. It’s incredible that I’m still in this business and you are still putting up with me.”
White continued with even more jokes in her speech. She said, “It’s incredible that you can stay in a career this long and still have people put up with you. I wish they did that at home.”
She concluded, “It’s such a blessed business to be in.”
Unsurprisingly, the Twitterverse came out in full support of the actress and her accomplishments.
“I will donate organs for Betty White,” one tweet said.
Another message called White “absolutely a national treasure.”
Congratulations on all your achievements, Betty!
Outside of Betty night and a few others, the show was trash. Viewership was the lowest it had ever been in the history of the program.
Hollywood may have laughed when Emmys host Michael Che said the only white people who thank Jesus are “Republicans and ex-crackheads,” but Tinseltown’s latest middle finger to Middle America fell flat in flyover country, and may have contributed to the telecast’s all-time low viewership.
Co-host Michael Che left many viewers of the 70th Annual Emmy Awards upset during the opening monologue with his fellow “Saturday Night Live” star Colin Jost, explaining that his mother would not be watching the show on Monday night.
“She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough,” Che said. “That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”
The joke didn’t sit well with some viewers, who took to Twitter to complain. Not only that, the show’s ratings dropped 10 percent from last year’s already-dismal numbers, setting an all-time low, according to TheWrap.
The ratings are in, they prove the only people watching the #Emmys were in the audience at the performance.

While many viewers may have changed the channel after the opening monologue, jabs at average Americans were far from over and the Jesus gag became a running theme throughout the evening.
Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that “large swaths of the American public just want to be entertained” but instead were turned into “unwilling participants” in a political rally disguised as an awards show.
“Whether it’s the NFL or the Emmys, people desperately want a break from politics. It’s amazing to me at just how tone deaf Hollywood is,” Barron said.
In the end, the Emmy’s should be thankful Betty White was part of there program otherwise it would have been a total waste.
‘First Man’ Crashes In The Box Office Following Flag Controversy
Hollywood never seems to learn. It is not smart to piss off the American people. Leftists are always wanting to rewrite history. No more supporting these types of movies.
Let them fail. They don’t deserve your money. The left hates America. It continues to show every day.
By the way, Ryan Gosling.. It was an American achievement.
From The Daily Wire:
“First Man,” the Neil Armstrong biopic about the 1969 moon landing, failed to blast off in the box office weekend following a heated controversy over director Damien Chazelle’s decision to omit the astronaut’s planting of the American flag on the lunar surface.
“The visceral historical drama got grounded in its domestic debut with $16.5 million, despite positive reviews,” The Hollywood Reporter reports. Internationally, “First Man” performed even worse, earning just $8.6 million in 22 markets. With a production price tag of $70 million plus another $50 to $100 million in marketing costs, the film could be a major loss for Universal Pictures.
Despite the poor numbers, Universal has expressed confidence the film will perform well over time after getting major boosts this coming awards season, during which it is expected to be nominated for various top prizes.
“Our core audience, adult males, don’t necessarily run out on opening weekend,” says Jim Orr, Universal’s president of domestic distribution. “We’ll have a great run for weeks and months to come.”
Though critics have heaped praise upon the film with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 88%, audiences have been less enthusiastic. It holds just a 7.7 rating on IMDB with a B+ audience rating on CinemaScore. On Rotten Tomatoes, the audience rating was even worse at just 60%.
In fairness to Orr, his projection that “First Man” could pull in big numbers over time is not without precedent. Both “Bridge of Spies” and “Argo” debuted to dismal box office receipts but went on to gross well past the $150 million mark during awards season. The big BUT to that, however, is that none of those films were dogged by the same controversy “First Man” stepped into the moment its star Ryan Gosling said the American flag planting was intentionally omitted.
“I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that’s how we chose to view it,” Gosling said of the decision.
After hearing of this, Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, blasted the film, prompting a fierce backlash. Since no evidence currently exists that the controversy is spurring the bad performance, time will tell if the critical success of “First Man” will propel it to financial success.”

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.
