'Desperately Sad': Steyn Blasts Hollywood Liberals for Trump Mockery at Emmys
Mark Steyn said on "Fox & Friends" that Hollywood liberals' attacks on President Donald Trump at last night's Emmy Awards were "desperately sad."
A slew of stars at the 69th Emmy Awards in Los Angeles Sunday night ripped into Trump, including Stephen Colbert, Alec Baldwin and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
"It's not that they're insulting Trump. It's that they're telling 63 million people who voted for Trump that if you vote for Trump, you can't just enjoy Dolly Parton singing '9 to 5,' you can't enjoy enjoy 'Veep.'"
He said what's "really pathetic" is that most of the lines about Trump weren't even jokes.
"Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton in their own ways are great writers. They would never write for themselves the leaden material they spouted last night," Steyn said.
Steyn also called out actor Donald Glover, who accused Trump of oppressing black people.
"He lives a life that is more privileged than 99.9999 percent of humanity through the entirety of human history have ever lived," Steyn said. "Where does he get off playing the victim card?"
"When everything is political, everything is political," he added. "You cannot even have the small shared pleasure of a sitcom."
