Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, and Amy Adams are among the many movie stars who joined in to sing Gloria Gaynor’s 1979 hit “I Will Survive” ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration. The star-studded cast, including Matthew McConaughey, Hailee Steinfeld, Felicity Jones, and Taraji P. Henson, all trade verses on the disco hit, with some ad-libbing their own lines. While Donald Trump’s name is never mentioned, the video is apparently intended to serve as a rallying cry for those still grieving Trump’s election. Directed by W magazine editor Lynn Hirschberg, the video also features vocals from Matthew McConaughey, Michael Shannon, Andrew Garfield, Chris Pine,
Comments: And you didn´t think they could get worse. They are so ignorant and pathetic that they can´t grasp how ridiculous this makes them look. I didn´t know half of those idiots, which is not unusual these days. That video is absolutely excruciating.
Now please shut up and slink back into your elitist hole in the ground.
I think what bothers many of us is that WE gave these entertainment people OUR hard earned money to be entertained... and they could care less. They trample on all of us as if we live and die based on what they say.
What´s ironic is that not one of these cretins would have a dime but for free enterprise that they hate. I can envision each of them trudging across the plains in a covered wagon with graffiti scribbled all over it telling the world that they are actors, troubadours and medicine men/women peddling their wares for a few pennies to purchase another meal.
I love this country and the capital base and the love of Our Creator on which our US Constitution was drawn.
God Bless America and thanks for watching out for US!
I see your Chris Pine and raise you with a Vince Vaughn.
I wish Mel Gibson would form a studio of talent that doesn´t hate America and release entertainment about stories of American exceptionalism.
BTW those weird Mercury car commercials with a zoned out McConaughey are NOT doing what they intend. He is not the classy Cary Grant sophisticated spokesperson you think he is. He is more like the drunk pitching whiskey for Old Turkey.
Vote with your wallet. Just vow to boycott any movies they make or the products that they endorse. Tell your friends why you are not seeing these movies. McConaughey plugs Lincolns. Jones is in Star Wars. Don´t patronize anything these actors touch and be sure that all your friends know. That is how a movement starts from the grass roots up. DO IT!
For some reason, perhaps due to his humble award acceptance speech a while ago, I truly thought McConaughey was not a sheeple liberal guy. I considered the possibility that he was involved with this video to tell liberals that "It´s okay, life will go on. Let´s get with the program and help our Country." That idea just didn´t fly; it nose-dived into the ground and face-planted in the dirt. Too bad, liked his acting; bye Matthew.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan told an illegal immigrant Thursday night that she shouldn’t “worry” about getting deported this year. A 32-year old illegal immigrant living in Oklahoma named Angelica asked Ryan during a CNN town hall if he thinks she should be deported. Angelica was brought to the United States when she was 11, and thus is protected under President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal immigrants brought to the United States as minors. The woman has an American-born daughter and wondered if someone in her situation should be deported. “No,” Ryan responded. The House Speaker said that President-elect Donald
Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Thursday that a proposal to extend the one-year lobbying ban for retired members of Congress to five years — part of President-elect Donald Trump’s series of ethics reforms — is “dangerous.” The Wisconsin Republican said during a CNN town hall that he agrees with the intent of preventing members of Congress from leaving the institution and immediately going into the private sector just to get rich. However, he noted there are other “unseen circumstances” that come with the lobbying ban. “What if you want to become an advocate for the cancer society? What if you
The head of the opposition research firm that is behind the Trump dossier is linked to a secret campaign aimed at undermining the Magnitsky Act, a law that places sanctions on Russian criminals and is vehemently opposed by the Kremlin, The Daily Caller can report. The main proponent of that law, a London-based American businessman named Bill Browder, tells TheDC that Glenn Simpson, the head of Fusion GPS, the company behind the Trump dossier, is a “professional smear campaigner.” According to Browder, Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, is working with a former Russian counterintelligence officer named Rinat Akhmetshin to destroy
Autoplay: On | Off President Obama is urging Americans to "reject a politics" that seeks to create divisions along religious lines. In a presidential proclamation Friday, declaring Jan. 16 Religious Freedom Day — an annual designation — Obama explained that the federal government does not favor one religion over any others. "As they built this country, our founders understood that religion helps strengthen our nation when it is not an extension of the state," Obama wrote. "And because our government does not sponsor a religion — nor pressure anyone to practice a particular faith or any faith at all —
The Architect of the Capitol Stephen Ayers on Friday evening announced plans to remove a painting portraying police officers as pigs. The artwork, currently on display in a tunnel between the U.S. Capitol and Cannon House Office Building will be taken down on Tuesday, before President-elect Trump´s inauguration three days later. The painting has been on display since last June after Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., hung it as a gift from his constituent. However, the image has caused controversy between lawmakers because of its political message. Rep. Dave Reichert, R-Wash., a former sheriff, asked Ayers to remove the image.
Former Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis said in an interview Friday that President-elect Donald Trump needs to get off Twitter and apologize to Hillary Clinton. “I mean he ought to be ashamed of himself for this kind of stuff, calling her a crook and that kind of nonsense. She´s a good person, nothing she did involved breaches of national security,” Dukakis said in an interview on WABC radio with Rita Cosby. “She was investigated for God knows how long about Libya, and a Republican-dominated committee exonerated her. Dukakis went on to say that Trump needed to change his behavior and
"It doesn’t make sense to can the general in the middle of an active deployment," rages D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D) after Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz, who heads the D.C. National Guard and is an integral part of overseeing the inauguration, has been ordered removed from command effective Jan. 20, 12:01 p.m., just as Donald Trump is sworn in as president. (Snip) “The timing is extremely unusual,” Schwartz said in an interview Friday morning, confirming a memo announcing his ouster that was obtained by The Washington Post. During the inauguration, Schwartz would command not only the members of the D.C.
Sen. John McCain said he did ´what any citizen would do´ in turning over the dirty dossier, which contained unconfirmed secrets about the president-elect, over to the FBI. The Guardian charted the path of how the dossier came to be and how it was that McCain got his hands on the controversial documents. The story of the dossier began with an investigative firm in Washington, D.C., being tapped by one of Trump´s primary allies to dig up some opposition research on the Republican hopeful. Scroll down for video (Photos) In turn, that firm outsourced the research to a ´retired western
President Obama will leave the White House to President-elect Trump on Friday, Jan. 20, and then according to his schedule he and wife Michelle will embark on their final flight board aboard a presidential aircraft to an "undisclosed location." That Friday morning, Obama´s final weekly schedule says the president and first lady will "welcome President-elect Trump and Melania Trump to the White House for tea." Afterwards, the Obamas will attend Trump´s inauguration at the U.S. Capitol. Then the couple will travel to Joint Base Andrews, via helicopter, where Obama will speak to group of staff gathered there "to bid farewell."
It sounds like a story lifted from the pages of a spy novel. U.S. intelligence officials have concluded that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin led a cyberespionage scheme designed to help Donald Trump win the presidential election. What´s even worse is that Putin´s plan worked and Trump now seems to be siding with Russia against U.S. intelligence agencies. It´s hard to know how to respond to this because it is unprecedented. But it is essential to take whatever action is necessary to make this right, as difficult, complicated and even uncomfortable as that may be. The hard reality is that the presidential election
A Senate Republican is blasting President-elect Donald Trump´s criticism of Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), praising the lawmaker for his leadership in the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) on Saturday seized on Trump´s characterization of Lewis as "All talk, talk, talk - no action," pointing out that his "talk" made a significant contribution in the civil rights movement. "John Lewis and his ´talk´ have changed the world," Sasse tweeted. John Lewis and his "talk" have changed the world.
Following a gushing report on Friday’s NBC Today about President Obama awarding Vice President Joe Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, co-host Matt Lauer revealed that he was overtaken by emotion while watching the White House ceremony on Thursday: “So I´m glad there were no cameras in my apartment yesterday because I was just sitting there weeping....I just burst out crying when I saw that moment. It was incredible.” Introducing the three-minute segment, Lauer proclaimed: “...there was something special in Washington yesterday. It´s getting a lot of attention. President Obama surprising his vice president, Joe Biden, with the Presidential
During a preview of an interview set to air on Sunday’s “60 Minutes” on CBS, President Obama said, “we’re probably of the first administration in modern history that hasn’t had a major scandal in the White House.” Obama said, “I’m proud of the fact that, with two weeks to go, we’re probably the first administration in modern history that hasn’t had a major scandal in the White House. In that sense, we changed some things.” (h/t Grabien)
President Obama said in an interview that the First Family will be happy to be out of the White House, and out of the spotlight. Speaking to Steve Kroft on 60 minutes he said that the ´bubbles´ they are in and constraints posed by Secret Service have ´gotten old´. He said: ´Michelle never fully took to the scrutiny. She´s thrived as a First Lady, but it´s not her preference. ´She was the hardest sell, and she never fully embraced being in the public spotlight, which is ironic given how good she is. His days as president are rapidly shrinking, as
