Since the late 1880s, entertainers have known “there’s a sucker born every minute” – but out in Hollywood they don’t seem to understand it applies to themselves as well.
We’ve covered Gwyneth Paltrow’s pronouncements before, when she compared enduring mean Twitter comments to being in a war zone (a Green Beret set her straight). But this latest one she spewed at a fundraiser at her home really turns my stomach.
As Hot Air reports, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly,” the actress, singer and food writer gushed after introducing Obama to several hundred supporters seated on white fold-out chairs in the lush backyard of her home in the movie star haven of Brentwood, a neighborhood in Los Angeles…“I am one of your biggest fans, if not the biggest, and have been since the inception of your campaign,” she said, adding that she thinks both of his campaigns and his presidency will be one of the most important and most scrutinized of all time.
“Paltrow noted the approaching Nov. 4 midterm elections in which Democratic control of the Senate is at risk. She called it a “critical time” for Democrats and seemed to urge everyone to vote. “It would be wonderful if we were able to give this man all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass,” she said.”
I think this sucker needs to be reminded we live in a Constitutional Republic, not a dictatorship. But while Obama was out there being admired and adored — ISIS is operating within Baghdad and closing the noose on Kobani. Hope Obama had a nice time with the Hollywood one-percenters everyday Americans are concerned with Ebola, their kids contracting enterovirus, losing their jobs, and dealing with the threats of those peaceful homegrown jihadists.
Yes those suckers are all over the place and we call them progressive socialists.
Ms. Paltrow, please stick to your scripts. Just like Obama and his teleprompter, when you guys go offline, you embarrass yourselves.
