Not sure if you caught the Tony Awards last weekend.
But Robert DeNiro caused quite a stir when he opened his segment as a presenter by saying:
Got a big round of the applause, in fact.
It seems to be quite trendy in Hollywood these days for celebs to use award shows for a little indiscriminate Trump-bashing.
I gotta say…
As a somewhat-impartial Canadian observer (don’t care for the current administration’s tendency to dick with our trade agreements, hence the ‘somewhat’)…
I don’t get it.
Don’t these people understand that every time some pompous wind bag takes a stand on Trump (does anyone really care what DeNiro says?) it ENERGIZES his base.
Yet another member of ‘the elite’ telling us what to think.
(That’s how Trump supporters will take it.)
It’s this kind of stuff that got him elected in the first place.
When will Hollywood get a clue?
They’re playing HIS game.
And last I checked, he’s still President.
Mr. DeNiro, with all due respect, I’ve loved watching your movies over the years, you’re one of our time’s greatest actors, but THIS….not your best performance.
My point is not to defend Mr. Trump.
(Although I daresay DeNiro’s outburst doesn’t add anything intelligent to the conversation.)
I honestly can’t say that I agree with ALL of Trump’s policies.
(Some I do respect.)
Much less his tweets.
But I’ve never underestimated him, like, it seems, 50% of the population. I was one of the few who called his election victory. Seriously. I told several of my clients on the eve of the vote to expect a surprise.
Anyway, that’s enough of this claptrap.
I’m not gonna hold it against ol’ Bob.
I’ll even borrow a page his book:
F**k newspaper ads.
