SNL Creator Says Show Writers Ignored Weinstein Scandal Because “He’s a New Yorker”…

Trump Makes the Loons Go Bananas.

Saturday Night Live show creator Lorne Michaels was caught leaving the 4am after party and asked why the show ignored the Harvey Weinstein sex abuse scandal.  According to a reporter from The Daily Mail:

[…] When Michaels was asked as he was leaving SNL’s after-party at 4am why the show avoided the Weinstein controversy, the producer smiled and responded: ‘It’s a New York thing.’ (link)

Wait,.. you get a pass on sophomoric comedic ridicule by being from New York?

The professional political left is apoplectic that President Trump has used his massive voice to turn the attention of the larger American electorate toward the cultural war within entertainment, movies, sports etc.

Do not underestimate the level of rabid anxiety this shift creates.  If you’ve followed the truism of politics being downstream from pop culture for the last 2+ decades, you realize that President Trump is an existential threat to the entire apparatus of pop culture.

The splodey head crowd was not prepared for this.  They were focused on destroying Trump on the field of politics.  While that battle wages, POTUS simply used his combat skills to ignite a MOAB in a battle-space his adversaries never saw him approaching.

To say Donald Trump is uniquely skilled for this moment in time would be the understatement of the millennia.   President Trump is seemingly one man, yet somehow, incredibly, he finds a way to surround his enemies.

These latest developments are all bonuses, and hilariously Trump only inputs a miniscule amount of energy into it.   The culture war is like a PT hobby to fill space between time spent traveling toward things of much greater consequence.

Effortless, and yet it makes the left-wing go bananas.

Too funny.

        “Fox News is reporting that Harvey Weinstein has been fired from The Weinstein Company.”

        ___________

        Is there not even a single reporter curious enough to wonder how a man gets suspended and then fired from his own company?

        One might think the founder and owner of the company would own at least 51% of the corporate shares, so that something like this could never happen.

        How many shares does Harvey still own?

        When did he lose ownership control of his own company?

        What were the circumstances leading to that situation?

        If you have already learned English, the only thing left to learn in order to be a reporter is to ask and answer WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY and HOW, and yet somehow, America’s journalism schools appear to be wholly incapable of teaching this to those who go on to a career in journalism.

        It’s beyond perplexing.

      If I am deeply cynical, I would say he’s trying to avoid saying that Weinstien is an ethnic Jew and therefore now off limits as character of satire. Thus he’s a “New Yorker”. (Mr. Michaels is also an ethnic Jew.)

      Promise, I am not into conspiracy theories or any of that rot. That said, the PC standard that no Jewish person is allowed to be satirized is so firmly in place, you’re not even supposed to mention the idea that someone is Jewish. If he said that,the first think you’d notice is that they’re both Jewish by birth.

      Mel Brooks did a wonderful job with roasting Jewish communities in the movie Spaceballs. It’s too bad that it’s come this.

        Yes. Since Weinstein is one of “them” – he’s off limits. But it exposes further the rot which makes them think its okay to target Christians. Every other “group” has been taken off the table in this country as regards satire, comedy or criticism – except Christians.

        Christians are fair game.

        PC actually violates the 1st Amendment. Not that the Courts care. Just like they don’t care if they force you to bake a cake, make wedding floral arrangements, or do photography for a wedding which violates your faith beliefs…

          Sounds like U are a bit rcist yourself. Guess U haven’t heard that most folks would like to see Jews boiled in oil, or perhaps U are one of them. Once a minister in a Nazi prison camp once sad ‘first they come for the Jews, then they come for us’. I’m not Jewish, but I proudly stand with them.

            Bon,

            As Christians we all stand with God’s chosen people — the Jewish people. God tells us that anyone who is an enemy of His people is His enemy. And as a Christian saved by God’s grace I know it was through His son — The King of Jewish lineage — that our salvation was made possible.

            LadyPenquin is not racist at all. She is just stating the obvious — from all appearances Christians and Christianity and Christ Himself are OK to “[boil] in oil.”

            Since President Trump is a Christian ~~ whether from New York City or not ~~ he is on the ‘OK to Bash’ list.

          Good comment “carrierh.” I also do not understand why Saturday Night Live is still alive. I watched it back in the day when it was funny but somehow it has become the holy grail of comedy. There is NO comedy on TV anymore. It is gone with Bob Hope and Johnny Carson and perhaps Leno. Gone with the wind….
          I do watch Gutfeld on Fox on Saturday night. It makes me laugh most of the time and last week was excellent. The week before when Tyrus go so angry over the public not buying in to the NFL kneel down protest, I turned it off. Funny or Off are my two choices and that’s if I am in front of a TV.

      Hate to break it to that pathetic, partisan a$$clown, Michaels, but President Trump is a New Yorker, too. In fact, the NY Post credited Trump, before the election,with resuscitating the City in the 80’s, singlehandedly…while Weinstein was frantically trying to “resuscitate” would-be starlets in his loft.
      Well, what does he know? SNL stopped being funny over a decade ago and Michaels is the only only clueless half-wit left in the country that doesn’t know it.

    A year ago this oaf was one of the most powerful men in Hollywood and his “friend” was about to be elected to the Presidency. Did he ever imagine where he’d be in 2017?

    Weinstein’s made enough money to continue to be an obnoxious liberal agitator, and with both the time and the need to continue pushing leftist policies we’ll be hearing more from him. But it’s just squawking now. His former associates no longer have to pretend to find his anecdotes funny and they can ignore him at the cocktail parties without worrying about their next script reading.

    OK. so after the Weinstein story broke in the NYT we found out that Lisa Bloom, Lanny Davis, and Anita Dunn were working for him.
    Then suddenly they bailed. Then 3 board members resigned.
    Now today, Weinstein is fired.
    The NYT story which they all knew about wasn’t enough to make them quit. But then they did later. Why?
    Why was Weinstein fired from his own company?
    In my opinion, there’s worse stuff to come out.

      The only thing that makes sense, as of right now, is that somebody was looking for revenge. If you have anything like a dark imagination of what depths humanity can lower themselves to, I’m afraid that the public accusation that Weinstein has a taste for free prostitutes is small potatoes.

      So I agree, what really going?

      They are apparently already in financial trouble. Harvey wishing to spend money on the NRA and Trump projects is something they likely want no part of. And Harve wouldn’t spend his own money suspecting he couldn’t make it back in theater ticket sales or advertising sales if it went on TV.

        they’ve been in financial trouble for a while. Not surprised to see Bob oust his own brother. Don’t forget Harvey repurchased Miramax from Colony – after a brief sabbatical i’m sure he will re launch with his key TWC execs. Never count this guy out… they were literally about to file for bankruptcy protection on the eve of The Crying Game being released.

    • I think one way of draining the swamp would be to go around picking off the low hanging fruit. Imagine all the horrible things Weinstein has done to young women.

      Maybe there is something darker. There have been lots of arrests in recent months of sexual predators. There is reported to be a large international ring of them that may even involve higher ups in Rome as well as the entertainment industry and around D.C.

      I imagine some birds have lots of names to sing about. Bet there’s multiple plugs to pull in that old swamp.

      Lanny Davis? Now that’s an interesting name. Though this is all speculation, I do believe that everyone of those people knew the dirty stuff going on, it’s what the rich and famous do – (not all, because we know folks who shun the parties and the limelight) but if one knows and says nothing…then that’s condoning and enabling it.

      I’ve venture that their careers and connections were more important than their morals.

      Lefties tried to take down the Catholic Church because of the priest pedophilia and coverup by the Church – but the Church was the real target, not the Lefties newly discovered sanctimony. In fact, Weinstein’s exposure proves that if you’re in the Leftist circle they will tolerate anything, and likely participated in it. Yes, my opinion, but drugs and alcohol go a long ways toward stopping inhibitions.

      Robert (“not so wise” is hopefully picked up by everyone…LOL), as you know, Hollywood is a “me first” town. Lots of jobs are acquired through means other than simply having the right look for a role or giving the best reading because “ME” is of primary importance.

      If the first woman who Weinstein came on to had sounded a PUBLIC alarm, this could have nipped in the bud Harvey’s whole sexual exploitation career, though those kinds of jerks have a way of keeping on the road they’ve chosen. For reasons of her own and those of other females, he wasn’t publicly outed and he continued his merry way.

      Rose got a settlement out of him and signed a confidentiality agreement for a rumored paltry $100,000 so she could keep on working in his lefty world. She was a willing participant in the cover up. Whatever reason triggered her coming forward at this point in time, I doubt it is guilt for having allowed him his unrelenting filthy pig behavior (not wishing to disparage those creatures, of course).

      As for Judd, though she likely embroidered her part of the hotel story (that view being based upon her being a drama queen who craves attention, a self-admitted bi-polar, and having embellished political speeches and steadily grown her SJW attitudes over the years), she did walk out on Harve. I give her credit for that.

      Granted, not being an actress who had a NEED to be well known, I didn’t feel compelled to “go along to get along” in Hollywood, though the opportunities were plentiful for such actions. It annoys me a lot to hear these women bellyache about being put upon. You make choices in this life and if some choices turn out to have serious consequences then own up to your part FIRST. I haven’t noted any of them doing that.

    Weinstein’s brand is probably hurting the DNC’s fund raising efforts. Look how the Demoncrats stirred up feminists to hate men and the power they represent. Yet here they have a powerful man who abuses women, right there front and center within the Party. Will they be returning his donations? They might say yes, but I doubt it. It’s all about optics. Weinstein will have to be purged. That’s going to be a tricky proposition since I’ll bet there are many in Hollywood who would like to get even with him, and now they have their chance. This will take the Democrat Party down with him. Just on time for the 2018 mid-terms.

    Remember: The Weinstein Company didn’t fire Harvey because they found out he was a sexual predator. They fired him because WE found out.
