It’s one thing to be a Trump supporter but this need to constantly try to dissociate himself (and yourself) from elitism, nepotism and cronyism would be laughable if it were not so dangerous and insulting to the people who are actually forsaken outsiders.
Nepotism in Hollywood is indeed rife, like in every place where rich parents want the best for their children and think they might have the possibility to create a dynasty…
*cough* Beckhams! *cough*.
However, unlike in finance and real estate, where Trump bloomed thanks to his father’s money and proud nepotism, one cannot buy talent on the screen or/and behind the camera.
No amount of his father’s money or influence will ever allow Jayden Smith to amount to what the greatest actors have achieved. And the greatest rarely come from rich, elitist backgrounds. As Streep said at the beginning of her speech, some of the actors your cheap round shot labels as the “Hollywood elite” are coming from poor backgrounds, struggling families and have known hardship. Their success is not the produce of having been loaned a million dollars by their parents when they wanted to start. Their career reaching high skies have nothing to do with them having the outsiders’ cake and eat it too. Unlike Trump.
People like Meryl Streep are where they are solely because of hard work. They can indeed voice an opinion for millions to hear not because they belong to some kind of down-looking caste with self-entitled privileges, rather because they embody the American Dream of someone who have been working tirelessly hard to make their dreams come true, despite the odds and the barks of your likes. That’s why people to want to listen to them for they admire and respect them and what they represent, which is in line with what America is supposed to represent. Resulting to yet another low blow when they dare disagree with your view only shows the pettiness of your mind.
A mind which doesn’t reach very far to begin with. I mean, let me asking you this: who are these “Hollywood elites” anyway?
Do they include actors, producers, screenplays…who are openly right-wing and who support Trump? You will see some of their faces in the audience as Streep speaks. Do they also qualify to sit under the umbrella of your unmitigated insults or are they also “everyday Americans” just because they share your opinion on Trump, regardless of their wealth and how they achieved it?
I know you have not thought it through. I know you think every single of your thought is worth a tweet, better if swear words are used. I know your tweet belongs to this constant attempt to present yourself and your like-minded peers as the “real Americans”, victims of yet another undefined groups of people pulling the strings in their golden tower.
But if you were to actually observe, listen, open your eyes and see beyond the length of your nose, and truly consider the woman on stage speaking in that video and the man she talks about, you’ll find that the one living in a golden tower that rose from outrageous nepotism on the broken back of everyday hard-working Americans is Trump, not Streep.
I think the worst is that your are indeed, yourself, a hard-working American who has achieved greatness, fame and fortune very quickly from not much except dedication and a will of steel. However, your USSR-like, blind support for a man who is anything but you is preventing you from seeing and acknowledging who are your actual peers.
You have come to define the every day, hard-working Americans by their political views and as people who have the same as you do so you automatically dismiss anyone who doesn’t share yours as a privileged, aloof, out-of-touch member of an elite.
I went on the Internet this week and I found this…
No, seriously. I watched another video but this time from Matt and Blue (husbands Dallas and Hamilton) and Blue was cooking some pasta with bacon sauce.
He cooked meat on YouTube! And not just meat but there was oil involved so…fat. There were pasta so…carbs. There was cheese so…diary products.
Is he a mad man? Meat and carbs and fat and dairy product on social media? How not Gwyneth Paltrow and all her clones of him to do that! People think social services are going to be on their back for being gay parents but no, it’s because they are cooking and eating delicious, guilt-free food and they are feeding it to their son.
Honestly, we need more of that, please, so the tide of self-proclaimed healthy gurus can finally ebb and we can eat some food without being judged and frowned upon. What helps this insanity surrounding food is usually that these gurus are mostly blonde, paper-thin and all living “wonderful lives”. Who wouldn’t want to be like them? I don’t but…
The good thing with Matt and Blue is they are both handsome, gorgeous, fit men so they are showing food-related health problems, such as obesity, are not about this or that type of food but about your diet as a whole.
