Hollywood Shouldn't Preach

Hollywood.  The Oscars.  You've got to love it.  They made a mess of it.  Jimmy Kimmel made fun of names.  They mistakenly announced the wrong film for best picture.  They honored in the memoriam a costume designer who is very much alive.

If this is what happens at their annual self-congratulation fest, when they've had an entire year to put it together, maybe they shouldn't be so quick to bombast the Trump administration.  After all they've been in power only a little over a month.

I hope their political posturing falls on fairly deaf ears.  You can't help but hear them because they hate the new administration and are very vocal about it.  Therefore the media gives them voice. However we can allow it to go in one ear and out the other.

For that matter a lot of what Trump says deserves the same because he changes his mind as soon as someone with a stronger voice gets his ear.  Fortunately that seems to be happening with some frequency for he has put some good strong people in positions of power.

The Oscars?  Eh.  They aren't what they used to be.  Glamor and great films no longer reign.  It has become politicized and angry.  Where's the fun in that?

As for the opinions of the stars?  They're mostly interchangeable and far to the left.  I've often wondered how many of them have set up foundations to help those less fortunate.  I'm sure some have but you don't hear about them.  Perhaps I'd have a more positive opinion of that community if I did.

Until that time I'm enjoying that for the moment they have to stop and clean up the egg on their collective faces.  They look no better than the President.
