"Well, that's certainly impressive. Every foul-mouthed, mentally unstable celebrity who has been making a case to be involuntarily committed to a mental institution for the last three years is now the official lunatic social media team for House Democrats." I find this hilarious. 99% of Hollywood is out of work because nobody will watch their crappy movies and this list of losers hasn't ever done anything noteworthy but they are now suddenly political geniuses. Trump is going to have a lot of fun with this.

Have you ever in your life seen such a group of arrogant, sanctimonious, nonsensical, amoral, intolerant know nothings in your life? These people are so ego driven that they actually believe that their opinions are valuable. They are so clueless that they believe Americans actually look to them for words of wisdom. What do they offer other than profanity, narcissistic pomposity, adherence to policies that have destroyed lives and continue to debase our culture. No thanks. Most Americans are wise to them and see them for who they are, anti-American zealots who embrace the dark side of life for a living. If these so called artists dropped off the face of the earth tomorrow, the world would be better off without them.

Ask the President's critics to name just one lie. Name just one crime. Name just one incident of racial bias, etc. CRICKETS! The more dirt that is dug up to throw on OUR President the more I am inclined to believe that Adam Schiff himself is the true whistleblower. He along with others among the deep state criminals such as Brennan, et al are closely involved in putting this together. This entire "foundation of the impeachment debacle" is built on nothing but sugar sand. It is crumbling with each hour as have every other accusation of malfeasance thrown at President Trump. Extended jail time for these traitors is a must to ever straighten out the scrambled mentality of the masses who have willingly sucked up the lies and false accusations that contaminate the air we breathe like a bad smog day in Hollywood.

If this bunch of high school dropouts and drug addicts and alcoholics think that we actually care what they say, they really are mentally ill. They spend more money going to rehad than most of us spend on groceries annually. Their movies are losing money; they will continue to lose if they keep this up. Tell them to put their money where their mouths are and clean up CA. Do something to get the homeless off the streets. All they do is build bigger houses and put walls around them. They spend their money on expensive jewelry and clothes and shoes and parties and flying around the world on private jets for lavish birthday parties. I don't want to hear one word out of their trashy mouths.

Haven't a clue as to who most of these folks are---when you are a way minus B lister any attention is probably welcome. But George Takei, the absolutely crazy Tom Arnold, etc???????? As for Debra Messing (and Eric McCormick), I am one of the countless people who will never again watch anything they are in (and I WAS a big "Will and Grace" fan), and am voting with my tv controller: Networks pay attention. So much of this, Arnold, Messing, Rosie (obviously), DeNiro, comes with a highly inflated feeling of intelligence and importance, fueled by yes men and sycophants. They are clueless.

Many Hollywood celebs sold their bodies to get their parts, now they have sold their souls to remain in the ''club.'' Not so surprisingly, most of them are pretty well washed up, as far as careers go, so they think this will make them relevant. Maybe with Bill, who might be interested in some ''casting interviews!''

Can you folks help me out here, please? I can't decide whether these people's insanity is even higher than their ignorance, or if their ignorance is higher than their insanity. I suppose both could be equal. But in a way, I do appreciate their efforts in one way; Every time they open their mouths, on politics, a subject that is beyond their intellectual grasp, the less likely I am to buy anything that the movie and TV show industry produces. So, they do save me lots of money... I used to go to the movies 3-4 times a week, and watch TV a lot. Now I haven't been to a movie theater in years, and on tv I pretty much only watch the oldies channel on my FTA satellite setup.

I believe it would be much more useful to hold celebrities accountable for their crimes. President Trump didn't betray America. He saved it, from the corruption and leftist policies of hussein the gay muslim and the clintons, the crime family who rape and plunder their way across the world. They must be thinking of some other country... La La Land? Communist China? Cuba, or Venezuela? All of these "celebrities" are second-rate actors who have been out of work and are trying to stay relevant and keep their names in the news.

Once upon a time — in a galaxy far, far away — The New York Times and The Washington Post were the go-to papers when it came to uncovering political scandals. Both papers made a point of running the Pentagon Papers, an internal and secret U.S. government history of various presidents and their relevant Cabinet secretaries decision-making on American involvement in the Vietnam War. The Post, of course, was also famous for its birddogging young reporters Woodward and Bernstein and their digging out the details of the Watergate scandal.

The rule does not apply to refugees or those seeking political asylum or nonimmigrant visas. The proclamation reads in part:

At the age of 95, Jimmy Carter is now the longest-living U.S. president in history. “Great men are a dime a dozen,” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough noted on the former president’s birthday. “Jimmy Carter has always been something far greater than that. He has lived his life as a good man. And that is exactly what America needs right now.” Now, I realize the Trump-obsessed Scarborough is attempting to juxtapose the former president with the present one. But the canonization of Carter has always been transparent revisionism. Habitat for Humanity or not, the world would have been a far better place had Carter retired from the world stage after his presidency.

At first, it seemed that this was a smart move – by simply stating an inquiry was in motion without going through the necessary formalities such as a full House vote, Pelosi was calming the crazies of her caucus (such as the Squad), while leaving herself plenty of maneuvering room to divert or back out should things start to deteriorate.
