Shania Twain Apologizes for Saying She Would Have Voted for Trump

Country-pop superstar Shania Twain caused a stir yesterday when she said in an interview with The Guardian that if she would have been able to vote in the Presidential election that it would have been for Donald Trump.

Here’s the excerpt from that interview that caused such a ruckus on social media.

It is not the only way in which she expresses her conservatism. If she had been able to vote in the US election, she would have plumped for Donald Trump, she says. “I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bullshit. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”

That’s it. In a very long interview, mostly about her life and career, this paragraph that was near the very end, caused people to lose their minds and prompted Twain to apologize/clarify what she meant.

This is really a non-story and why The Guardian even asked her about it is questionable. Twain is Canadian and therefore ineligible to vote in US elections, so it really doesn’t matter who she hypothetically might have voted for. Not to mention, it has nothing else to do with the profile piece about her life.

And if she had been able to vote for Donald Trump and felt that was the right choice – she shouldn’t apologize for anything.

Celebrities who say something different than what’s expected of them need to stop bowing to the liberal mob when they start crying about an opinion they don’t agree with. Last time I checked, people were free to think whatever they want and vote for whomever they like.

Kanye West Becoming a Voice of Reason?

Yeezy is raising some eyebrows with his latest Tweets. Yesterday, he tweeted that he likes the way Candace Owens thinks.

Owens is a conservative African American who has been critical of the Black Lives Matters movement. She’s the communications director for Turning Point USA and has her own YouTube channel where she often criticizes liberal policies. She’s also a strong Trump supporter.

On Fox and Friends this morning, she thanked Kanye for his support, adding that “Kanye West does not really want to fold to controversy. If you look at things historically, Kanye West has really represented the battering ram against political correctness.”

Liberals were immediately upset by West’s tweet.

Then today, West began fighting back, tweeting in favor of differing opinions and railing against the thought police.

Hate to say it but Kanye is making a lot of sense here. And it’s kind of refreshing to see a celebrity thinking oppositely of how people think he should.

Comedian T.J. Miller is dumb, to say the least

You may not be familiar with the name T. J. Miller, but it’s likely you’re familiar with some of his work.

He had a small role in the smash hit Deadpool and was up until recently, a central character on the HBO series, Silicon Valley. He also provided his voice to Ready Player One. Needless to say, the guy is on top of the world, at least career wise.

However, Miller, being the jokester as he apparently believes himself to be, called in a bomb threat in March. Miller relayed to a 911 dispatcher that a female passenger had a “bomb in her bag ” on an Amtrack train in New York.

It turned out to false and Miller was rightfully arrested on Tuesday. He’s since been released on $100,000 bond, but if convicted, faces five years in prison.

So, with everything Miller currently has going for him, it must be asked: Why do it? Why in the world would one of the biggest names in comedy put his entire career in jeopardy for  what appears to be a prank?

Is it boredom? Perhaps he was going to use it as a bit in his standup act? Or is the man really that stupid?

Whatever the reason, it’s always unbelievable and pretty sad to watch someone who seemingly has everything just throw it all away.

Some people just can’t handle fame, success and money and Miller appears to be another in a long line of destructive, talented performers.

Surprise, surprise: Maher defends Ingraham

Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. For instance, liberal Bill Maher defending conservative Laura Ingraham.

Over the weekend, the ‘Real Time’ host came out against the proposed advertising boycott Laura Ingraham’s television program.

Some quick background on the whole issue: Ingraham tweeted out a message essentially mocking Hogg after he said was rejected by several colleges. Hogg retaliated by calling for advertisers to drop the Ingraham show.

Of course, several companies capitulated to the 17-year-old. But Fox News put out a message saying they were staying with Ingraham despite the hullabaloo. 

Anyway, Maher essentially said Friday night that despite what Ingraham said, she still has the right to do so, with the First Amendment and all. He goes on to make the same argument that many have been making since the whole thing started. David Hogg has the right to be heard just as much as Laura Ingraham does just as much as Joe Scarborough or Rachel Maddow does.

Almost on cue and as expected the other three members of Maher’s panel vehemently disagree with the host.

Gotta wonder how they would feel if someone tried to silence them?

‘The Office’ reboot talks pick up steam

Sometimes you just have to take a break from politics, ignore Donald Trump’s typo-ridden tweets, shut off CNN or MSNBC (That last one is a joke, calm down) and indulge in mindless entertainment. Right? Sure, we all do.

Anyway, ‘The Office,” the U.S. version, is without any shadow of a doubt, one of the best series in television history. If you don’t believe me, if you are unsure or disagree with my previous statement in the slightest, I will fight you! (Not really, but you get the idea.)  Seriously, Steve Carell not winning an Emmy for his work as the iconic Michael Gary Scott is one of the biggest crimes of all time.

However, as much as I love watching Jim play hilarious pranks on the overly authoritative Dwight, Pam roll her eyes at the camera or Creed doing whatever it is exactly Creed does, it must stay in the past.

Recently, John Krasinksi (Jim) said he would love to come back and play the sardonic Jim again.

Krasinski’s willingness to revive his career-making character comes after Jenna Fischer (Pam) saying she was game as well. But, Pam and Jim, Dwight, Andy, Angela and Creed, you guys need to stay in the past or at least on Netflix.

The last two seasons – without Michael Scott – were not good. And it’s already been said that Carell wouldn’t be apart of any series reboot.

So knowing all of this, why would they bring it back? Yes, I understand Roseanne has been a massive hit and Will and Grace has been bringing in the ratings, but just leave The Office alone. The characters were given somewhat decent conclusions during the series finale.

The Office is a terrific, witty, hilarious show that only gets better with multiple viewings, but don’t bring it back, don’t ruin it. PLEASE!

Joss Whedon to Trump: Just Quietly Die

Joss Whedon, sci-fi TV/movie god and the man behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Avengers 1 & 2 and Dollhouse lost his mind after the 2016 election. It seems he still hasn’t recovered, because in a tweet earlier today, he said he wished President Trump would “just quietly die.”

This is not the first time Whedon has wished death on someone from the GOP.

He once wished Speaker Paul Ryan a pretty awful death by rhino.

And was actually glad his mother is dead so she doesn’t have to see what’s become of the country.

He’s also made fun of cancer patients, compared Ivanka Trump to a dog and his ex-wife famously said he’s a “hypocrite preaching feminist ideals.”

Admire the guy’s work but it sounds like he has some issues he needs to work through.

Gun Violence Survivor Kaya Jones Wants to Debate David Hogg

Former Pussycat Dolls singer and Native American Ambassador to the National Diversity Coalition for Trump, is a staunch Second Amendment supporter. Despite having been a victim of gun violence AND leaving the stage shortly before the Las Vegas shooter began his rampage at the Route 91 music festival, Kaya still believes in the right to bear arms and she’s had enough of David Hogg.

So far Hogg hasn’t responded to her challenge.

Meanwhile, other conservatives have decided that muting him is better than trying to engage.

 

But no one is addressing the elephant in the room – why aren’t theses kids back in class??
