The 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards show was full of cracks about President Donald Trump, his wife, and all those nasty conservatives residing in Middle America.
I know what you're thinking: how original and refreshing!
Actress and proud feminist Kristen Bell, who hosted the sanctimonious show, waited a whole nine-seconds before setting up her crack at First Lady Melania Trump's expense.
“There has never been a host for this award show before," Bell said. "Yep, first time, first person, first lady. And I honestly never thought that I would grow up to be the first lady. But you know what? I kind of like it."
Then came the Melania jab: “I think my first initiative as first lady will be cyberbullying, because I have yet to see any progress made on that problem quite yet.”
In October, Mrs. Trump announced that she'd be fighting to stop bullying in schools. "I think it's important that we choose kindness and compassion," she said during a visit to a Detroit middle school.
The Left immediately pounced on her cause, calling out President Trump for "bullying" his opponents, though Trump himself would surely argue he's merely counter-punching his attackers.
Either way, the joke is tired, over-used, and lazy.
Bell continued to hit the Right during the painfully predictable monologue.
For example, she referred to "The Handmaid's Tale" as a "documentary," which is totally hilarious because that's only been done about 6,000 times.
She also took a swipe at the Tea Party, the movement full of those nasty conservatives who asked for the government to butt out of their lives and cleaned up their own trash at protests. "The cast from 'Get Out' is here, you guys, serving as a walking reminder that if you say 'yes' to the Tea Party, you're immediately on your way to 'The Sunken Place.'"
Get it. Because the Tea Party is racist. LMFAO!
Lastly, Bell gave a sanctimonious rant about the #resistance during this "watershed moment" with Trump in office:
“Everyone’s story deserves to be told, especially now,” she said. “We are living in a watershed moment in time and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure we are leading the charge with empathy and diligence, because fear and anger never win the race.”
If it wasn't clear before, all humor died in Hollywood the moment President Trump won the 2018 election. Sad!
