That’s why we have a simple solution… We need to boycott everything Hollywood do.ring MSNBC’s coverage of President Trump’s speech before Congress, filmmaker Michael Moore reacted to the speech’s recognition of the widow of Chief Special Warfare Operator William “Ryan” Owens’ widow, Carryn Owens, by saying she was there “as a sort of an f you to the people who are criticizing” Trump over the raid that lead to Ryan Owens’ death.
During MSNBC’s coverage of President Trump’s speech before Congress, filmmaker Michael Moore reacted to the speech’s recognition of the widow of Chief Special Warfare Operator William “Ryan” Owens’ widow, Carryn Owens, by saying she was there “as a sort of an f you to the people who are criticizing” Trump over the raid that lead to Ryan Owens’ death.
Moore said, “Ryan Owens, his death came as a result of a dinner Trump had with his son-in-law and a political hack. … And then the reporting here on NBC News, and other networks and papers, of how the intelligence community said we got nothing out of this. … But then why tonight to say, oh, we got all this treasure trove.”
He added that Carryn Owens was there “as a sort of a f you to the people who are criticizing him for this. And this poor woman, this widow, who has lost her husband. She is in desperate grief right now, and in love with her husband, and to use that as — [to] put another notch on his belt and what’s he thinking about? My ratings. Record applause. I’m going to get an Emmy for this, most applause for a dead soldier on my watch. I mean, this is the sickness of this man.”
The ladies of “The View” also criticized President Trump’s Tuesday tribute to Carryn Owens (although nobody cares what they think) as exploitive and inappropriate on ABC Wednesday morning.
“You know, that mission could have not have happened without presidential approval which is why Obama never gave the go-ahead because he felt it wasn’t good enough for us to send our people in,” Whoopi Goldberg said in reference to the Yemen raid that resulted in Special Chief William “Ryan” Owens’ death. “Was this a tribute or was this damage control?”
“I thought that was so exploitive. I thought he exploited that widow. It was so hurtful to me because we know that U.S. military officials have said to the press that Obama didn’t give the green light because he felt that the mission would mark a significant escalation in Yemen.”
“My God, how do you exploit the woman who’s grieving over the loss of her husband, the father of her children, when you sent him there without the appropriate ground support?” Hostin asked, drawing applause from the crowd. “That was wrong.”
Kathy Griffin noted comedian, LGBT activist, and self-proclaimed “D-List” celebrity, opened her appearance with a withering barrage on the president and his just finished address to Congress and the nation. “What an idiot,” she said dismissively, “I mean we’ve got to watch this idiot for an hour and nine minutes. He says one hateful thing after another. He is so embarrassing.”
Melania comes in with the sequined jacket and all the white guys are like ‘hey she’s hot.’ Maybe if I’m like him I could get her,” Griffin mocked.
The president’s advisers were no safer from Griffin’s vitriol. Referring to Trump’s senior adviser, she said, “As I was watching the so-called speech, I can’t help but picture Stephen Miller. Like, he is a comedian’s dream, the guy with the dead eyes, writing that stuff.
To all those Hollywood elites, it wasn’t a political statement or anything of the kind. It was a president who knew her pain, knew her sacrifice and that of her husband. Trying to ease her pain. To show her the nation is behind her. To ease the pain of the loss of someone who stood by her, laugh together, cried together, planned a life together. Yes, she did sacrifice. She knew as all military families know that one day they too might receive that folded flag. Friends and family alike have sacrificed. So listen up, think of this before you spew that hatred. These people have made that sacrifice not only to this nation but to the world in order to eradicate the killing of innocent people by these terrorists.
