I hope that by reading/watching actress Eva Longoria’s Tuesday comments to late night TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel that the stupid doesn’t rub off on me. Scott Whitlock at Newsbusters has the transcript (you can also watch video clips of Longoria’s remarks at that same link):
EVA LONGORIA: But you know what, it’s a special privilege to meet our commander in chief.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Sure, yeah.
LONGORIA: And, you know, I’m a big Obama supporter no matter what he’s been through. He’s been beaten up the past couple of years.
KIMMEL: Did you tell him that?
LONGORIA: I did.
KIMMEL: And was he receptive?
LONGORIA: Well, he’s been very receptive for me, because I’m a big advocate for Latino issues. And, so, he’s been a big listener and he’s done a lot of coalitions and a lot of round tables regarding what we want changed and-
KIMMEL: When you say he’s a big listener, you’re making fun of his ears?
LONGORIA No! No! You know, he keeps getting beat up lately because there’s such an extremist movement happening and it’s a very dangerous- For me, it’s very dangerous because it’s not the character of America. It’s really under attack. And he’s been governing in, like, a state of emergency since the time he went into office so we haven’t really seen him do what he can do.
Yeah – opposition to our Dear Leader is just sooo dangerous, Ms. Longoria. Totally against what America’s all about. Yep. Of course, I’m sure you (along with your left wing colleague Morgan Freeman) didn’t feel that way when you and your fellow Hollywood blowhards viscerally opposed President Bush, right? Of course not. Since it was your side doing all the opposing and stuff. And this motley crew of militant left wing haters/fanatics/extremists who routinely compared Presdient Bush to Hitler and wished for his arrest and/or death? I suppose that was more along the lines of the type of “patriotism” Hollywood types like you view as more like “the American way.”
And I won’t even START on all the things Barack Obama HAS done, contra to Longoria’s ridiculous assertion that ”we haven’t really seen him do what he can do.” WTH?!
Seriously, Hollywood is getting more and more repulsive (not to mention more creepily fascistic) by the day. So few sane folks in that crowd, outside of “Chuck” star Adam S. Baldwin and a few others. Props to the few on the Hollywood right who are not afraid to be loud and proud about where they stand. They are in a distinct minority and have earned our support.
