Actor Jim Carrey Goes on Strange Anti-Trump Rant During Hollywood Awards Night

This guy just gets stranger by the day.

Actor Jim Carrey has, as of late, become completely obsessed with President Donald Trump, creating bizarre, provocative pieces of art designed to express his unhappiness with the current administration.

Like a typical Hollywood liberal, he’s bashed the president, trashed the Second Amendment, and done all sorts of things by creating paintings and sharing photographs of them all over Twitter. One particular piece was a very disrespectful portrait of Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

Well, now Carrey seems to be taking his act on the road. The actor, most famous for his role as Ace Ventura, a pet detective who frequently and literally talked out of his own butt, went on a strange anti-Trump rant during an acceptance speech at the Britannia Awards in Los Angeles.

Carrey was one of six honorees at the event held at the Beverley Hilton on Friday evening.

“I’m glad it didn’t come in the mail,” Carrey joked about his award, referencing the rash of mail bombs sent to prominent Democratic figures in recent days. “Yes, I no longer have packages delivered to my home in the great America fashioned in the last couple of years. I don’t ever remember it being this great, actually.”

After expressing thanks to BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) for his award for Excellence in Comedy, Carrey credited silent film-era star Charlie Chaplin with being his inspiration before making references to Trump.

“We need to be clear: Shamelessness is not, and will never be a superpower. It is the mark of a villain. Kidnapping children is not what great nations do,” he said, referring the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy of separating migrants from their children at the U.S.-Mexico border. “One half of America at this moment believes there is a sinister deep state diabolically plotting, to … what? Give them health care?”

“We in America are misinformed,” Carrey said. “Reality shows have warped our reality of what a hero is, or what truth is. So tonight I’d like to dedicate this award to those who remind us of our virtues, who remind us of the truth.”

He then thanked Chaplin, Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford, Trump dossier author Christopher Steele, Colin Kaepernick and actor Robert DeNiro.

He said Chaplin took on the right wing in his day, “which we are fighting today.”

Carrey wasn’t the only individual who decided to weigh in on the state of America. Actress Cate Blanchett took an opportunity to address the divisive political climate in our country.

“The black, the white, the blue, the red, it’s just like, Oh my God, when are you just going to get on with the fact that we’re all different, embrace that difference and just move forward?,” she said while accepting a trophy named after director Stanley Kubrick. “We’ve got to acknowledge that we’re all f—– up, and we all need forgiveness…Turn around and give the person beside you a hug.”

Blanchett’s take on things seems to present a bit more of a balanced approach to all the issues splitting the nation than Carrey’s, which is proof positive that even some in the Hollywood crowd are sick and tired of all the nonsense and fighting.

Perhaps it’s time for Americans to start ignoring the easily offended folks of the left and look for ways to connect to each other, to find common ground, and remember what it’s like to be human beings and not political parties?

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

Published

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
