I didn't watch the Golden Globes on Sunday.
Like many of you, I couldn’t care less what Hollywood celebrities think about politics, any more than I care what anyone else thinks.
But I found myself cracking up on Monday morning, reading all the self-righteous indignation from Trump supporters and Trump himself, outraged that liberal “snowflakes” and “Hollywood elites” like Meryl Streep would have the audacity to speak their minds and speak out against Donald Trump.
“These entitled Hollywood crybabies still don't understand how out of touch they are!” cried Glenn Beck’s favorite new conservative crybaby, Tomi Lahren.
“It might be warm in LA, but make no mistake it's raining snowflakes. Whiny, overpaid SNOWFLAKES!” she followed up minutes later.
Trump himself slammed the “Hollywood hissy fit” with a tweet or two of his own, and it seemed like every conservative commentator in the United States was crying about the unfair treatment Mr. Trump received at the Golden Globes.
And I found it all quite funny!
For a bunch of people who label everyone else “whiners,” “crybabies,” and “snowflakes”, Trump supporters seem to be the biggest snowflakes of them all. They get their precious little panties in a bunch every time someone speaks out against Donald Trump, as if the entire world doesn’t already know what Meryl Streep knows – that he’s a disgraceful, despicable human being.
Trump, meanwhile, is the biggest crybaby of them all. A colossal, steaming, dirty diaper-heap of the most wretched, nauseating, self-aggrandizing bullsh*t to ever ooze from the pampered mouth of a spoiled, billionaire brat of the most annoying kind. Not a day goes by where Trump doesn’t take to Twitter, whining about the media, whining about the Democrats, or whining about union bosses, his critics, Arnold Schwarzenegger, or the TV show that he still serves as Executive Producer of.
He whines and cries and cries and whines all day, every day, about every perceived insult and injustice that he cooks up in his egotistical, delusional mind. Meryl Streep was just one of tens of millions of Americans to acknowledge this when she spoke out against Trump on Sunday night, and yet Trump and his supporters seem to have gotten their fragile feelings genuinely hurt over the whole affair.
But lest Trump and his supporters think it’s just Hollywood “snowflakes” like Meryl Streep who don’t like Donald Trump, make no mistake, it’s not. NOBODY likes Donald Trump. It’s not just Meryl Streep, and it’s not just the actors and performers we saw at the Golden Globes on Sunday. It’s all of Hollywood, and it’s a vast majority of America.
It’s our favorite TV stars like Bryan Cranston. It’s our favorite comedians like Amy Schumer and Louis CK. It’s our favorite sitcom writers like Seth McFarlane. It’s our favorite athletes like LeBron James. It’s our favorite singers like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga and John Legend and Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi. NOBODY likes Donald Trump, and his supporters seem to be the only slow-witted “snowflakes” who haven’t caught onto this yet.
Just consider this: Approximately 63 million Americans voted for Donald Trump. That’s roughly 3 million Americans less than who voted for his opponent. It’s just 31% of the 200 million registered voters in this country. It’s less than 20% of the U.S. population. Do you know what that means? It means if you were standing in a room of 5 average, ordinary Americans, ONE of them voted for Donald Trump. The other 4 either didn’t vote, voted for someone else, or, like me, think Donald Trump isn’t worth their vote.
So it’s we – the vast majority of average, ordinary Americans – who don’t like Donald Trump. It’s we – the vast majority of average, ordinary Americans – who don’t like him one bit, and don’t have an ounce of respect for him. And it’s we – the vast majority of average, ordinary Americans who don’t like Donald Trump – who won’t be going anywhere for the next four to eight years, regardless of who speaks at the Golden Globes and what anyone in Hollywood thinks.
We are the majority of America, and we’ll continue to speak our minds and run our mouths as often as we please. We – the MAJORITY of average, ordinary Americans – plan to make the next 4 years a living hell for Donald Trump. His supporters are a small minority of misguided, misinformed misanthropes who wouldn't have a thing to celebrate if it weren't for the quirks of the Electoral College, and we – the majority – will make their life hell. The same way they made Barack Obama’s life a living hell for the last eight years!
What goes around comes around, snowflakes, so suck it up! Put on your diapers and grab some Kleenex, because the next four years are going to be tough. If Trump and his supporters can’t handle Meryl Streep, they’re going to melt over the next four years.
And remember this, snowflakes. Always remember this: The next time you rock out to “Born In The USA”: the next time you laugh-out-loud at Peter Griffin or Louis CK; and the next time you settle onto the couch for another Breaking Bad marathon or LeBron James highlight reel; remember - you’re supporting the same feelings and political beliefs that Meryl Streep expressed at the Golden Globes. She’s just one of millions of Americans who feel the same way about Donald Trump, and you’re listening to their music, cheering their dunks, shaking their hands, and watching their TV shows every day.
How’s that for irony, snowflakes?
