Many people believe Hollywood is 100% bleeding heart liberal, but they are wrong. Sure, the clear majority in the entertainment community prefer Democrats over the GOP and they absolutely loathe President Trump.
But not all have this dim view of the world – look, Trump ran against the establishment because they screwed over the little guy – both political parties did this.
The elites have still not come to grips with this fundamental and permanent shift in the American electorate. Heck, the pundits and experts didn’t even change how they conducted polls and were wrong again across the board last night. (SEE VIDEO BELOW)
The truth is the vast middle of America was sold down the river by the select few who benefitted while the rest of us suffered and the bill has come due. The Democrats know this, or the smart ones like Sherrod Brown and Joe Manchin do, and as Hollywood hotshot Jason Blum just found out the hard way. From The Washington Times:
Hollywood producer Jason Blum was booed and escorted offstage after he trashed President Trump during his acceptance speech at the 32nd Israeli Film Festival in Beverly Hills on Tuesday night.
Mr. Blum, whose credits include Oscar-nominated films “Get Out” and “Whiplash,” blamed the president for the rise of incivility and anti-Semitism in the country while accepting the 2018 IFF Achievement in Film & Television Award for his work on the new “Halloween” sequel.
According to the Hollywood Reporter: “Tonight we have much to celebrate with the opening of the 32nd Israeli Film Festival, but at the same time today, Americans went to the polls to exercise our right to vote. I have been quietly checking my phone and we’re doing pretty well. The election results are pouring in as I speak and a lot is on the line,” said Blum, to which several audience members quipped, “Depends for who.”
“A lot is on the line — the last two years have been hard for all of us who cherish the freedom as citizens of this country,” Blum continued, immediately prompting boos directed at him.
“The great thing about this country is that you can like [Donald] Trump, but I don’t have to, and I can say what I feel about it — and I don’t like it!,” he responded as a few people started walking out of the Steve Tisch Cinema Center inside the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills.
Blum went on as the booing got louder and more aggressive, with shouting and whistling disrupting him.
“As you can see from this auditorium, it’s the end of civil discourse,” he continued. “We have a president who calls the press the enemy of the people. Thanks to our president, anti-Semitism is on the rise.”
Blum tried to speak further as a man, Yossi Dina, who starred on a reality TV show called ‘Beverly Hills Pawn’ grabbed him and tried to remove him.
Blum would not let go of the podium and was eventually forcibly removed as more people joined to get him off stage to a chorus of boos.
