Barbra Streisand Endorses Adam Schiff For President

By PopZette Staff | January 31, 2020

It’s always unfortunate when a celebrity who is well respected for their talents in the entertainment industry ruins their image by spouting off publicly about their ignorant political views. This is sadly exactly what the legendary singer and actress Barbra Streisand has done in recent years, as she now seems to prefer bashing President Donald Trump to performing.

Streisand once again showed the world that she’s nothing more than an ignorant member of Hollywood’s liberal elite on Friday, when she took to Twitter to say that she believes the anti-Trump crusader Adam Schiff (D-CA) would make a “great president.”

“Adam Schiff is so impressive. His knowledge of the law… his passion… his articulateness. His sincerity!” Streisand tweeted.  “He speaks the truth and would make a great president.”

It should be noted that Schiff is one of the main people responsible for wasting the time and money of American taxpayers with this impeachment farce. Schiff knew full well that Trump would never actually be impeached by the Republican-controlled Senate, yet he decided push forward with the impeachment trial anyway just because of his own personal hatred for the president.

Unlike Streisand, most Americans see right through Schiff, as recent YouGov data shows that just 27 percent of Americans have a positive view of him. Since Trump’s approval rating is currently at 39 percent, it appears that Schiff’s chances of beating him in a presidential election would be slim, even with Streisand’s endorsement.

This serves as a reminder of just how out of touch Streisand and her fellow members of the Hollywood elite are with the struggles of the working class Americans that Trump has been helping. As someone who has been overpaid by the entertainment world for decades, Streisand never has to worry about being impacted negatively by the economic policies of a president. That’s why she is so quick to hop on the radically leftist bandwagon: she doesn’t have a horse in this race!

The more ignorant Hollywood celebrities like Streisand try and take Trump down, the more the rest of us are reminded why we need him in office more than ever.

Bette Midler Comes Unglued – Calls For ‘Regrexit’ Movement In Which Trump Supporters Leave GOP ‘Flock’

By PopZette Staff | January 29, 2020

Bette Midler is a renowned entertainer who has been famous for decades because of her singing and acting abilities. Unfortunately, she is now just as well known for having one of the worst cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome in Hollywood, as she frequently uses her Twitter account to launch deranged attacks on the president and his supporters.

Midler was up to her usual anti-Trump antics once again on Tuesday night, when she took to Twitter to slam the president’s supporters as “bigots” as she also urged them to leave the Republican Party.

“#RepublicanRegretters! Your hearts must be sore indeed to realize how low you have fallen, under the spell of the DTs!!” Midler began her rant. “Do yourself and your country a favor and #REGREXIT the #GOP!!  Join TrueBlue, and remember the #REALYOU!”

Midler went on to continue her rant early this morning, writing, “Wow! Hate what’s happened to the beloved Party of Lincoln! Afraid to tell the bigots you know? Feeling you are alone? It’s not hard! Just give the flock a small, rueful wave buh-bye, pick up your ethics, morals, values, traditions,&  #FLEE!! #yourebeingfleecedbyTRUMP.”

This is far from the first time Midler has gone after Trump and those who support him. Back in November of 2018, Midler fantasized about the deaths of Trump and his family members in a tweet that has since been deleted.

“Trump Trump Trump Bob Mueller’s marching, Trump Trump Trump And here is why Trump Trump Trump He’s gonna hang you Hang the fam’ly GOOD AND HIGH!” she wrote, according to Breitbart.

The fact that Midler, a woman who has been overpaid for decades simply for singing and playing pretend, thinks she can lecture the rest of us about politics shows just how narcissistic Hollywood liberals really are.

Midler and her fellow liberal elite celebrities can’t stand the fact that unlike Barack Obama, Trump did not become president to kiss up to Hollywood stars. Instead, he took office to help working class Americans, and that’s exactly what he’s done over the past three years.

Midler can whine about Trump all she wants to, but it’s not going to stop the rest of us from reelecting him come November.

Harvey Weinstein Trial Escalates As Former ‘Project Runway’ Assistant Testifies About Forced Encounter

By PopZette Staff | January 28, 2020

The trial of disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein continued to escalate on Monday as a former assistant on the reality show “Project Runway” broke down while testifying about the sexual assault she allegedly suffered at his hands.

Mimi Haleyi told the New York City court that she tried to fight Weinstein off, saying that she kept saying “no, no, no” as he assaulted her, according to USA Today.

“I did reject him, but he insisted,” Haley testified. “Every time I tried to get off the bed, he would push me back and hold me down.”

Haleyi, who is one of two women whose allegations make up the current case against Weinstein in New York, said that she had gone to the movie producer’s Soho apartment back in 2006 in a car he sent for her. She thought that she was going to meet with him about working on one of his movies, but instead, she said that Weinstein pushed her on a bed at his home and forcibly engaged in sexual acts despite her repeated protests.

Haleyi went on to say that she recalled thinking “I’m being raped” during the attack. She also remembered asking herself, “If I scream rape, will someone hear me?” before she finally simply “checked out.”

“I couldn’t get away from him at all. … I checked out and decided to endure it,” she told the court. “That was the safest thing I could do.”

Earlier today, the court heard the testimony of Elizabeth Entin, who was Haleyi’s roommate at the time of the alleged attack. Entin testified that Haley told her about the assault as soon as it happened.

“And she came in, and he started rubbing her shoulders, kissing her, and she said no, no, and he wouldn’t stop, and she said, ‘I’m on my period,’ and he said, ‘I don’t care,’ at which point, he threw her down … and started (assaulting) her as she was saying no,” Entin told the court.

Entin remembered telling her roommate, “Miriam, that sounds like rape. … Why don’t you call a lawyer?”

“She still just seemed very distraught and was shaking and didn’t really want to pursue it or talk about it,” she explained. “She wasn’t very present.”

Weinstein is currently facing five charges in New York related to his alleged crimes against Haleyi and one other woman. He has plead not guilty to all charges, denying that any of his sexual encounters with the women were nonconsensual.

Prior to being hit with numerous sexual assault charges, Weinstein was one of the most powerful men in Hollywood. He was also a major donor to the Democratic Party who had close ties to lawmakers like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Actress Evan Rachel Wood Gets Major Backlash For Calling Kobe Bryant A ‘Rapist’ After His Death

By PopZette Staff | January 28, 2020

Evan Rachel Wood, who is best known for starring in the HBO television series “Westworld,” has found herself in hot water this week after she called late NBA star Kobe Bryant a “rapist” hours after his death on Sunday.

Bryant tragically passed away on Sunday at the age of 41 in a helicopter crash that also killed his 13 year-old daughter Gianna as well as seven other people. Just hours later, Wood took it upon herself to say that Bryant was both a “sports hero” and a “rapist” in a tweet to her over 444,000 followers.

“What has happened is tragic. I am heartbroken for Kobe’s family. He was a sports hero. He was also a rapist. And all of these truths can exist simultaneously,” Wood tweeted.

Wood’s tweet refers to allegations stemming from 2003, when a 19 year-old woman accused Bryant of choking and sexually assaulting her in a hotel room in Colorado, according to The Daily Beast. After being arrested, Bryant admitted to cheating on his wife with the woman, but claimed that their encounter in the hotel room was consensual. All charges against Bryant were later dropped when the woman refused to testify against him in court, instead choosing to hear an apology from him that was read by his lawyer.

Despite the fact that the charges against Bryant were dropped, Wood still decided to portray him as a “rapist” less than a full day after his passing. Unfortunately for her, however, this came back to bite her in a big way when social media users fired back at her for condemning the NBA hero.

The backlash eventually got so great that Wood finally responded in a second tweet.

Twitter users were still having none of it, however.

For Wood to defame a man hours after his death and that of his child based on allegations from seventeen years ago that were eventually dropped in a court of law is truly beyond the pale. Her tweet is also especially hypocritical coming from someone who works in the industry of Hollywood, which turned a blind eye to the sexual deviances of someone like disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein for decades.

Wood owes the entire Bryant family an apology, and she deserves all of the social media backlash that she is receiving.
