Actor Robert Redford Loses It:
'A Dictator-Like Attack by Trump
on Everything American Stands For'

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 11/30/2019 7:37:01 AM

It's always entertaining when famous actors or singers think that we -- normal people -- are curious to know their political views. I mean, we all know that members of Hollywood are generally radically liberal. If they take a political position, it's going to be in favor of abortion, against "climate change," or -- of course -- passionately anti-Trump. Case in point, this op-ed written by actor Robert Redford for NBC News. "We’re up against a crisis I never thought I’d see in my lifetime." Namely: "A dictator-like attack by President Donald Trump on everything this country stands for. As last week’s impeachment hearings made clear, our shared tolerance

Comments:

What the hell is he talking about? Trump doesn’t get anything he wants from Congress. To whom is he dictating? And what does he think America “stands for“?

Poor Robert, all he ever had going for him was his looks, and he does not even have that anymore.

Redford lives in a self-reinforcing bubble, like all his Hollywood friends. Bobby, isn't it ironic that you've benefitted so much from this country, when all you've done is play pretend in front of cameras in pictures that others have bankrolled? Oh, and you run the Sundance film festivals. You certainly rub elbows with the common folk there! Elitist idiot.

#1, as a woman, I never saw the appeal - he has major acne scarring. All he really had going for him was blond hair and blue eyes. Why isn’t he being panned as a straight white male? I’ve been receiving his Sundance catalog in the mail for decades. I’ve never purchased a single item, yet they keep arriving in my mail box. The trees! The trees! Aren’t his catalogs contributing to destroying the planet?

Redford looks like an ancient mummy from the 3rd dynasty who escaped from one of those glass coffins on display in the Egyptian wing of a museum and immediately headed for a hair salon and got a very bad hair dye job. Watching this dwarf's acting on the big screen has been the same as watching paint dry. Another one of these very wealthy Hollywood hypocrites who got theirs and now want to take what we have. Fortunately his shelf life on this planet is about to expire.

Evidently, the very notion of "what America stands for" can only be defined by ultra-liberal socialists who DO NOT TOLERATE the dissenting views of other AMERICANS... Redford id free to express his views, but so is everyone else under the 1st Amendment-- Those who want to TAKE AWAY that right in favor of their own perceptions BY THE FORCE OF GOVERNMENT are UN-AMERICAN

Words from a one dimensional actor. If you've seen Redford in one movie then you've seen him act the same in all. Acting with Barbara Streisand in The Way We Were her dumbness political soundings must have rubbed off on him or maybe not. Just more garbage from a Hollywood crapweasel who cares.

Where does he get this 'dictator' stuff? Trump has had to fight to get anything he wants from Congress. If he were really a dictator or Hitler incarnate as some call him, he would already have built a 100 ft wall on our southern border, deported every illegal, deported all Muslims legal or not and had a large number of reporters and enemies executed. Wait, that sounds pretty good.

What in the hell is this retarded jerk talking about? None of his rabid assertions have the slightest basis in fact. The "impeachment " was a total sham, a hoax that could only have fooled a fool. Redford was never the sharpest pencil in the box, clearly hasn't gotten any brighter as the years have passed.

I thought Ovomit was the worst president in the history of this great nation!!! I never thought any president could be worse than Jimmy Carter, but Ovomit quickly proved me wrong!!! But all that said, I never lost a second of sleep over Ovomit. His incompetence was not going to cause me to loose my sanity!!! Sadly, so many of these brain dead lie-berals have let their president, Donald Trump, live rent-free in their heads 24/7/365 since he was elected!!! It's hard to keep your sanity when you let anyone do that!!!!

That would have been Obama with the dictator like moves Sparky. Remember how he said he had a pencil and a phone. He snuck in so many debilitating EO's behind the scenes that we are still dealing with the damage they are doing. It isn't Trump who spied on Americans, it was Obama Robbie. It wasn't Trump who kept selling out America, that too was Obama. We know what you stand for. You prefer to value a tree on the edge of your property that is actually a serious traffic hazard and has killed people. How is that American again? At least Paul Newman formed his own company and found out how real life and business works. Redford defines the term dumb blond joke.

Redford, like other liberals, lives in his own head, with a loose association at best with reality, the reality the rest of us live in. It is no accident that so many in show business are this way. They earn their money by pretending to be someone else, inhabiting make-believe worlds. And when anything occurs (like nationalism or Trump or blexit) that doesn't comport with their made-up worlds, they lash out, opposing it with made-up accusations and made-up labels to do battle with their made-up villain. Earth to Redford: wake up and look around, and I don't mean on your ranch. Take a drive through the small towns and small cities in the midwest, mile after mile, town after town, state after state, where the people live who have supported you financially your entire life. Drive past the abandoned factories and empty, grass covered blocks where nice little houses once were, past the closed stores and derelict buildings. Then come back, and we'll talk.

The imaginary recession of 2019 is over. The U.S. economy added 266,000 jobs for the month and the unemployment rate fell to 3.5 percent, matching the lowest level in 50 years. Economists had expected the economy to add 180,000 jobs and for unemployment to remain unchanged at 3.6 percent, according to Econoday. Adding to the picture of strength for the labor market, previous jobs numbers were revised up. September’s figure was revised up by 13,000 to 193,000. October was revised up by 28,000 to 156,000. Together, that adds 41,000 more jobs than previously reported. The Friday report on nonfarm payrolls makes it clear that the economy is much stronger than

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire -- For a brief moment, concerned looks crossed the faces of some Elizabeth Warren supporters gathered for her election-night event in a cavernous building near the Manchester airport. There were no TVs visible to most of the crowd -- a common feature for a struggling campaign that doesn't want the audience to see bad news. There was no warm-up speaker. At 8:20 p.m., facing a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire after a third-place showing a week ago in Iowa, Warren walked onstage without fanfare. She began by acknowledging that Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg "had strong nights."

"People were just coming up to me and, you know, just loving the little word play on the hat and taking pictures and wishing me happy birthday," Sprague told News4. However, one woman at the bar was not as amused.

MANCHESTER, NH -- Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont narrowly edged former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg to claim victory in New Hampshire's Democratic presidential primary.

Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and former Vice President Joe Biden, who are limping out of New Hampshire facing serious questions about the future of their campaigns. "We love you New Hampshire," Klobuchar stressed in her primary night speech. "Because of you, we are taking this campaign to Nevada.

California Rep. Eric Swalwell said on Wednesday that Democrats may consider another go at removing President Trump from office, this time for the Justice Department intervening in Roger Stone’s court case.CNN host Jake Tapper asked Swalwell whether House Democrats might consider impeaching Trump for ostensibly aiding the longtime Republican operative, who was convicted of obstruction, witness tampering, and lying to Congress last year. Prosecutors initially sought a sentence of up to nine years in prison, but the Justice Department stepped in and said it would pursue a lesser penalty for Stone."We’re not going to take our options off the table.

Republican Devin Nunes warned that the layers of lies have unraveled in the putrid onion that was Robert Mueller’s investigation of the failed Russia-collusion hoax. Congressman Nunes told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs that Americans will soon learn the disturbing depths of deceit and corruption perpetrated by the Mueller team to promote the Russia-collusion hoax. “The lawyers that stepped aside today who made the seven-to-nine-year recommendation [against Roger Stone] — we believe that this is not going to be the only example,” Nunes said. He continued: “There’s other examples of things they did during the Mueller investigation that the American people will be very interested to learn in the coming weeks,

Fox News: Now the “waves and waves of swarms” are spreading further across the region, said Keith Cressman, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organizations (FAO) senior locust forecasting officer.

As my colleague Nick Arama reported here, it was a great night for Trump. With 97% of the New Hampshire primary results in, the President is at 85.7%. In other words, he’s now in Reagan territory. And Tuesday’s Republican turnout, currently around 120,000, far exceeds that of any other incumbent president seeking reelection. Although this is certainly good news, Republicans shouldn’t get too cocky because the Democrats had a very good night as well. The most updated figures (97%) show that 283,440 Democratic votes had been cast. Based on that number, 100% would bring it to approximately 292,200, which is significantly higher than Democratic turnout in 2016

Primped and poised, Siba the standard poodle owned the ring. Even with the crowd at Madison Square Garden chanting for a popular golden retriever, the statuesque Siba strutted off with best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club on Tuesday night. Adorned with black puffs and pompoms, the 3-year-old Siba was the absolute picture of what many see as the epitome of a show dog. Not everyone shared that view. As judge Bob Slay studied Siba in the best-of-seven final ring, a fan shouted out: “No way, Slay, no way!”
