Another day, another Hollywood star inexplicably asked to pontificate about politics. What will it take to get it through their pretty heads that no one but their self-righteous, self-important colleagues cares?
In an interview published Wednesday in The Hollywood Reporter, actress Jennifer Lawrence was asked by Oprah Winfrey what she would have to say to President Donald Trump if she were ever to meet him. says
“Oh, my God, I’ve been waiting for this moment,” the Hunger Games star replied, before declaring that any encounter she has with Trump would likely end unpleasantly for him,” according to The Hill.
“I’ve got a pretty good speech,” said Lawrence, 27, adding with a laugh that “it ends with a martini to the face.”
Actually, it would end with the Secret Service wrestling her to the ground, and then the next morning would begin with her being charged with assault.
Lawrence told Oprah she has never met Trump, but she would “definitely” be ready to unload on him if the opportunity presented itself. “I’ll give you a hint — it’s not nice. You wouldn’t want me to say it to you.”
So courageous, our Hollywood betters, speaking truth to power!
The Hill points out that in 2015, Lawrence had decried the idea of a Trump presidency as “the end of the world.” Then earlier this year, she "preached unity," telling Vogue that the country needs to come together because “we can’t continue this divide and anger.”
“My political passion has almost turned into an obsession,” said the star of the almost universally-panned box office bomb mother! “I mean, I don’t think you ever do feel settled, [but] as soon as you feel settled with your home and your personal life, you’re looking at the world and going, ‘How in the hell do I fix this? What do we do?’”
This is part of the problem with Hollywood and the left in general: actors and actresses feel compelled to lead the charge to save the world, but they don't live in the real world or have any special political insight or awareness apart from feelings and hashtag slogans.
