President Trump spoke to the press today and served up his usual self-serving soup of misinformation and smears. He hit his talking point about how conservatives are treated “unfairly” on social media, a fabrication which has become popular in right-wing media. Republicans want to play the victims rather than grapple with the fact that it’s their own odious ideology driving Americans away.
The president railed against Hollywood, presumably because so many celebrities and movie stars are liberals who have repeatedly criticized the president and his vile administration. Trump referred to Hollywood as “racist” because of the “kind of movies they’re putting out.” Of course, he failed to specify what exactly he was talking about but added that these movies are “very dangerous for our country.”
While Hollywood, like all aspects of American culture, has always had issues with racism and lack of diversity, it’s made great strides in recent years to be more inclusive and representative of the multiracial and multicultural body that is America. Perhaps Trump means Hollywood is racist against white people because of recent films like “BlacKkKlansman” which have explicitly condemned white supremacy. If so, the president is once again outing himself as a white nationalist.
As far as the movies being “dangerous,” Trump seems to be once again trying to find something to blame for mass shootings other than the guns that his NRA donors and firearm fetishist supporters refuse to admit are a problem. Instead, Republicans want to blame violent video games and movies which, according to most studies, appear to have little to no actual effect on real-world acts of violence.
Beyond the outrageous content of his comments, many Twitter users were quick to notice how incredibly sweaty Trump looks on camera, as what appears to be makeup sloughs off his face like an orange clown. Some of the mockery was absolutely brutal and precisely what Trump deserves.

Did someone throw water on #trump? His face is so wet. His make-up is going to start running down his nasty face in about 2 minutes.

Donald trump spews ignorance and stupidity by the second. Hard to focus and keep track of it. Was that drool or sweat dripping off his chin today? Not a good look.

Trump sweating his makeup off while trying to control press narrative before heading to Hamptons. His upper lip is so wet it's back to white lol. Makes him look even more like a frothing lunatic as he tries to deny his racism… desperately. Who paid $250k for lunch w/ Trump?

Trump is really sweaty at the White House. Is it that hot in DC? I'm in Virginia and it isn't that hot right now. It's 84 degrees in VA.

Question – how do these letters get delivered from NK to US? Also – #Trump was a hot wet sweaty mess at that impromptu presser.
