Cher and Other Leftists in Hollywood Are Fired Up Over Trump’s Tweets
Liberals are angry the president had the guts to call out those who have made anti-U.S. statements
The anti-Trump liberals in Hollywood have been all over President Donald Trump these past few days (actually, they haven’t stopped doing so since even before the November 2016 election).
Here’s just one example.
“If we don’t vote him out, then we deserve him. We all have the ability to toss him,” said director Judd Apatow about the commander-in-chief.

The reason for this latest dose of ire?
Over the weekend, Trump ripped into the Democratic “squad” of House members on the far-Left who seem to hate America and constantly criticize the country for everything and anything — including laws that Congress itself has put in place.
Yet they fail to address problems that they themselves are contributing to, causing, or exacerbating.
“So interesting to see ‘progressive’ Democrat congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe … telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful nation on earth, how our government is to be run,” Trump wrote over the weekend.
“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came?” he added.
He doubled down on those remarks on Monday, saying during an event at the White House, “These are people that hate our country. They hate our country. They hate it, I think, with a passion … Get a list of all of the statements they have made, and all I’m saying [is that] if they’re not happy here, they can leave. They can leave.”
Only one of the four far-leftists — Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) — was not born here; she’s Somali-born. Even Fox News host Laura Ingraham called Trump’s original tweet “an unforced error.”
Some Republicans have condemned those remarks as well. And just before he tweeted that out, some of the same progressive Democrats were going after Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), their own House speaker — even calling her racist — so perhaps the president should have left things alone.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson made a great point about the issue: “The problem [here] is Twitter is not America. Twitter is a tiny, foul-smelling sewer where unhappy people share their fever dreams. The rest of the country is a very different place, and the rest of the country finds that kind of rhetoric [from the progressive Dems] disgusting. Even the majority of Democrats are unnerved by it. Look at the polls,” he said in his monologue on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday night.
“Democrats are losing. They don’t know that yet on Twitter, but they’ll find out at some point, probably soon.”
“When Ilhan Omar is talking,” he also said, “Democrats are losing. Again, when Ilhan Omar, Ocasio-Cortez and the rest — when those four people are talking, Democrats are losing. They don’t know that yet on Twitter, but they’ll find out at some point, probably soon.”
The president’s larger point in his tweet and his subsequent comments was that those who seem to detest this country and all it stands for — and all it offers — should be careful about what they say about America.
And if they don’t like the United States of America, there are plenty of other places they should consider going.
Never mind that this president has delivered one of the most successful economies ever in this country — and strengthened the United States in so many other ways since his election.
It seems that the “squad” — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), plus Omar, plus Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) — just can’t stop complaining about America.
And the mainstream media are right there with them.
As Charlie Kirk, founder and executive director of Turning Point USA, pointed out on Twitter, “The media is more upset Trump is calling out anti-American radicals within Congress than the fact the pledge of allegiance is BANNED in parts of Minnesota and that ICE centers have the American flag torn down and the Mexican flag put in its place.”

Actor Seth McFarlane got into the anti-Trump act, too.
“We have seen all this before. He’s using the oldest trick in the book. He sees unrest among Democrats, so he’s stirring the pot and throwing gas on the fire below. It’s purely in the interest of igniting chaos. All too often, we fall for it. Let’s see the bully for what he is.”

Most everyday working Americans could give a hoot what the Hollywood elites have to say.
But just for the record, here’s a few other choice bits of commentary they’re sharing on their social media feeds.

I support @IlhanMN, @RashidaTlaib, @AOC & @RepPressley as they stand up to this racist president & expose systemic, bipartisan white supremacy hiding in plain sight in this country. Stay strong, your voices are so important as you fight for working people & the marginalized. pic.twitter.com/je3V2wmJfs

I know to call someone an ignorant racist is redundant. But with this President you have to add cruel and inhumane. Decent loving people are running out of words to describe this sick sad lying excuse for a human being.

Donald. Your racially charged attacks on Twitter won’t distract us from the horror of the migrant camps, from the corrosive corruption of your administration, or from your assault upon access to healthcare for 23 million Americans. We see you. Your time is nearly up.
