Editor’s Note: Whether on screen or off, Hollywood can always be counted on to keep us entertained. This is especially true when it comes to politics. Liberty Nation’s Hollyweird column shines the spotlight on Tinseltown’s A-listers and their wild and wacky takes on today’s current events.
First, it was Ben Shapiro who was thrown under the bus for daring to attend a conference, and now, Hollywood’s elite are having nightmares about Tucker Carlson? Maybe not all entertainers, of course, but this is at least true for Jennifer Lawrence (Hunger Games, X-Men).
Lawrence, who grew up in a Republican family in Louisville, KY, said she has been arguing with her relatives since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. While “trying to heal” from those disagreements, the actress claimed that she has recurring nightmares about Carlson and had even been discussing this problem with her therapist. No surprise here, but she didn’t get much support from some of her critics – including Shapiro, who tweeted: Hey, @TuckerCarlson, Jennifer Lawrence has been dreaming about you again.”
Royce Lopez, host of Daywave Radio, tweeted an image of horror film villain Freddy Krueger with the caption: “What Jennifer Lawrence sees everytime she nods off. @TuckerCarlson.”
Tucker Carlson Has Company on Lawrence’s Hit List
Lawrence said she believed she was a Republican until the age of 16, after watching a 30 Rock episode where Tina Fey’s character Liz Lemon said, “Just because I think … we should all have hybrid cars doesn’t mean I don’t love America.”
However, as is usual for those leaning to the left, the actress blamed it all on the mean orange guy, saying everything changed when Donald Trump got elected:
“For me, when Donald Trump got elected that just changed everything. Because this is an impeached president who’s broken many laws and has refused to condemn white supremacy. It feels like there has been a line drawn in the sand. I don’t want to support a president who supports white supremacists.”
And then there’s this wonderful piece of intelligent deduction:
“It breaks my heart because America had the choice between a woman and a dangerous, dangerous jar of mayonnaise. And they were like, ‘Well, we can’t have a woman. Let’s go with the jar of mayonnaise.’”
Of course, she’s talking about Hillary Clinton, but the way she worded her wisdom sounds like the only thing going for Clinton was that she was a woman. It seems she isn’t the only one who thinks so.
Lawrence might have Tucker Carlson nightmares, but she insists that all Americans need to be political and that she doesn’t tolerate them if they are not because the world’s need is “too dire” to not get involved. “I’ve tried to get over it and I really can’t. I can’t,” she told Vogue Magazine. “I’m just unleashing but I can’t f— with people who aren’t political anymore.” She concluded with “Politics are killing people.”
But, hey, Tucker Carlson is involved politically – she just doesn’t like what he has to say. Lawrence also took a potshot at J.D. Vance (R-OH), who wrote the book Hillbilly Elegy. “He’s not a hillbilly if he wrote a huge book,” the actress admonished. Neither does she appreciate any “old” politicians – at least not conservative ones. “We have to live in the future that they’re creating. These people are f—ing old,” she exclaimed. “They’re a hundred. [Mitch] McConnell was alive and well and thriving when schools were segregated.”
To sum up today’s political theater, Liberty Nation Editor-in-Chief Leesa K. Donner said it best:
“There is no way to put this nicely. American politics is spinning so far out of control that it is legitimate to wonder if we will ever get to a place where we can all just get along.”
Tune in next time to see what else Tinseltown has planned.
