First Man will be one of the biggest Academy Award contenders this year.
It depicts the infamous Apollo 11 mission when mankind first stepped on the moon. Unfortunately, the filmmakers decided to do the most anti-American thing possible. They excluded the astronauts planting the American flag in the moon dust.
And Trump had some epic words about it.
First Man is surely one of the leading Oscar contenders for this year.
It stars Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Corey Stoll, and Kyle Chandler. That’s an all-star cast.
Damien Chazelle helmed the film. He directed La La Land and Whiplash – both Best Picture nominees.
In a year filled with marginal movies, this one is a sure-fire bet for the Academy Awards’ Best Picture category.
However, they refused to show Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin plant the flag.

And President Trump was not happy about it.
In an interview with the Daily Caller, Trump said, “I wouldn’t even want to watch the movie.”
That’s because Trump is a real American who values our accomplishments. https://offthewire.com/laura-ingraham-destroys-this-oscar-contender-with-two-words/
He continued, “When you think of Neil Armstrong and when you think of the landing on the moon, you think about the American flag.”

These astronauts are the face of one of America’s greatest achievements.
Why would they do this?
That seems like the typical Hollywood model.
Let’s be all-inclusive for every country and nationality. We don’t want to offend them.
How many times have you seen that before?
Ironically, this is the same industry that consistently whitewashes characters.
Matt Damon in The Great Wall, Tom Cruise in The Last Samurai and Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell just to name a few.
They consistently do this and have the arrogance to pretend the opposite. It’s pretty clear that the industry is that certain “R” word that they call anybody who opposes them.
Trump concluded with, “It’s almost like they’re embarrassed at the achievement coming from America, I think it’s a terrible thing.”
It’s almost like they’re embarrassed at the achievement coming from America
Is he wrong? Of course not.
Gosling is Canadian, Chazelle is French and Foy is British.
They do this all the time too.
This is the industry that takes a moral high ground on every political issue and then turns around and does the exact same thing.
Are you surprised?
They preach equal pay rights for women.
And then they pay women a fraction of what they contracted with their male counterparts.
Hollywood claims sexual misconduct is wrong. Then the Me Too Movement is born. https://www.americanpatriotdaily.com/featured/nbc-caught-covering-up-clintons-sex-scandal/
They’re hypocrites. Yet somehow they’re celebrated as cultural icons.
Buzz Aldrin was furious with First Man’s narrative based on the two trailers.
He trolled the production. Aldrin posted a picture of him and Armstrong next to the flag.

Sen. Marco Rubio wasn’t happy about it either.
Rubio called it, “total lunacy.”
He wrote, “The American people paid for that mission, on rockets built by Americans, with American technology & carrying American astronauts.”
Rubio’s right. We did that. Nobody else can or should claim it.
Gosling even had the audacity to claim that it was more of a “human achievement.”
When will other countries wake up?
If it wasn’t for the United States then the entire world might be living in the Third Reich.
We are the sole creators of some of the biggest innovations in human history and none of them are grateful for it.
It’s utter nonsense.
What do you think?
Is Trump right on this issue?
