The liberal hysteria isn’t stopping anytime soon.
The Hollywood elitists somehow have deluded themselves that Donald Trump is the worst thing that’s ever happened to America.
But a famous novelist just exposed the hypocritical hysteria of the Hollywood elites and it’s absolutely hilarious.
Author and cultural critic Bret Easton Ellis who is known for his acclaimed novel American Psycho has made the news lately with his twitter handle.
Ellis recently tweeted, “Defending the American voter I’m yelled at in Sunset Tower for being a Trump apologist and colluding with Russia. Is the Left [expletive] NUTS?
Of course, shocked liberals everywhere attacked the famous author because how dare he not be defending them!
But then Ellis felt the need to follow up his twitter with a story he had written in an email about a dinner engagement with a Hollywood producer.
And the story demonstrates the delusion of the Hollywood elite perfectly.
Bret Easton Ellis wrote in his email:
“Hey, I was with a friend (a Hollywood producer), and it was a private conversation. I brought up something about fake news in relation to a movie I’d seen (Baby Driver is the cinematic equivalent of fake news, I think was the line), and she started to go ballistic on me for using that term.
I defended not only my use of it, but the use of it in a wider context, and then all hell broke loose.
I kept it together but she lost it, even attacking my socialist millennial boyfriend who she has known for 7 years (he wasn’t there) when I told her he has stopped watching MSNBC and Rachel Maddow (his goddess for awhile) after being disappointed and turned-off by their fake news (not that my boyfriend agrees with the term ‘fake news’ either, but the MSNBC bias was not moving the needle for him fast enough), empty promises from Maddow in terms of the Russians and impeachment and taxes — nada, nothing, nada.
MSNBC was replaced by the Food Network and Japanese animation for him.
On Saturday, I just listened — sometimes disagreed — and mostly let her talk, but when defending the Electoral College and how the system works (I didn’t vote for Trump), she accused me of being on Trump’s side and therefore colluding with everything he represents.
Once home, I threw a couple of tweets out frustrated and a little buzzed; nothing out of the ordinary, just how a lot of people are feeling.
I try not to tweet anything political just because I’m not that interested, as my boyfriend pointed out — my boyfriend thought the tweets were ‘pious’ and ‘low-vibrational.’
I don’t do interviews regarding politics, so I say no to just about everyone. Sometimes I’ll talk about it on my podcast, but really it’s the media that I’m appalled by.
As for whoever’s in the White House — they got voted in, what can you do? What I’m critiquing has nothing to do with Left/Right, liberal/conservative — I don’t believe in those labels, so, whatevs.
I also want to make clear that this doesn’t happen all the time: people know better and there’s a lot of groupthink out here, so the idea of things being constantly ruined isn’t necessarily true.
There are tribes; Beverly Hills went red for Trump, so L.A. being 100% anti-Trump is not that clear cut.
For me, as a gay man living in West Hollywood, it’s really only a few people so fatally immersed in the bubble that can get my usually chill self somewhat pissed off.
My dinner partner on Saturday said she had never heard that Comey admitted the NY Times had gotten a series of stories wrong.
She thought I had made that up. When I told her the world isn’t this — gesturing around the dark opulence of The Sunset Tower — and that the divide is real, she dismissed it with Trump’s approval ratings without acknowledging the media’s approval ratings are lower than Trump’s.
She pointed out that MSNBC was killing it in the ratings and I told her that Maddow and Hannity are basically neck-and-neck any given night–and yet I was thinking, ‘I don’t watch either one!’ So why am I even engaging in this?’”
At least some of the left is starting to wake up, but others like the Hollywood producer mentioned will never accept the fact that Donald Trump is their President. That’s the reality they can’t deal with.
