Trump Derangement Syndrome is still smoldering in Hollywood.
For the past five years, nearly the entire industry has been dedicated to slandering Donald Trump and the Republicans.
Now a socialist Hollywood director signed on to one project in order to attack Trump.
Hollywood is notorious for chronicling historic events through a left-wing lens.
Liberal writer and director Billy Ray created the Showtime series The Comey Rule, which was an absurd dramatization of the Russian collusion imbroglio told from the perspective of James Comey, the disgraced former FBI director.
In one of the scenes in the series, Ray reinterpreted a text message exchange between former FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Strzok and Page, who were engaged in an affair, traded text messages about how the FBI had a plan to “stop” Donald Trump’s presidency.
In Ray’s series, the lovebirds were nobly attempting to stop Trump’s imaginary collusion with Russia.
Ray will be bringing the same level of “accuracy” in a film about January 6th, and filmmaker Adam McKay is jumping on board to produce.
McKay, an avowed Democratic Socialist, recently directed Don’t Look Up, a satire made to fear-monger about climate change.
During a recent labor union dispute, McKay said:
“In a country and in a city with crushing, devastating income inequality, it’s no longer ‘left-wing’ to demand living wages, universal health care and rent control…It’s a bare minimum. When I looked around, I found some incredible groups committed to fighting the big dirty money rotting out our communities. And DSA-LA [Democratic Socialists of America-Los Angeles], for me, is at the top of that list.”
Both Ray and McKay have written screeds against Trump and Republicans, so the January 6th movie will not contain any nuance whatsoever.
It will undoubtedly be a two-hour campaign ad for the Democrats, and it will almost certainly be released in time for the midterm elections.
“Ray had originally expected to long look at the events of January 6 in the form of another limited series. Deeply affected by the attack, he traveled to Washington, D.C. within days of the siege, and interviewed a number of the key principals when memories were raw and fresh. That included Capitol police officers Michael Fanone and Harry Dunn, as well as members of Congress who were trapped inside the Capitol when the violent siege unfolded. Fanone consulted on the screenplay throughout the process.”
Fanone has been the most visible Capitol police officer giving accounts about January 6th, but many have asked for his bodycam footage to be released.
There are still thousands of hours of Capitol footage that remain under lock and key.
Too many questions have gone unanswered, such as the story behind Ray Epps, a purported Trump supporter who was goading people to storm the Capitol on both January 5th and 6th.
The FBI and the January 6th Select Committee seem curiously incurious about Epps.
The chances of Epps making it into Ray and McKay’s movie are approaching zero.
