We’re tracking the conservative culture clash with woke Hollywood hypocrites to keep you up to date on who’s winning and who we hate. 

Here’s what happened today:

Hysteria

Liberal “Hocus Pocus” witch Bette Midler wants former President Donald Trump arrested for “attempted murder” of President Joe Biden. Midler tweeted the assertion in response to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows’ claim that Trump tested positive for COVID-19 and attended a debate with Biden while ill.

“WOW. That rat bastard knew he had Covid on Sept 26, but went on w/his schedule unmasked, exposing everyone at the Barrett ceremony; let’s not even mention his saliva spewing at Biden during the debate! What a pig! He’d sell smallpox infected blankets to soldiers. He’s that guy,” she tweeted

#DonaldTrump should be arrested for attempted murder,” Midler continued in a follow-up post. “He tried to infect & kill #JoeBiden at the debate; by turning up too late to be tested, knowing full well he was positive; then screeched, sputtered, spit, and foamed at the mouth, hoping to infect Joe. He IS the devil.”

 

Called Out

Liberal comedian Sarah Silverman turned on lefty MSNBC host Joy Reid for attempting to sensationalize a false narrative about Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. 

Reid tweeted a CNN article titled: “DeSantis proposes a new civilian military force in Florida that he would control,” and captioned the post, “So… y’all know this is fascisty bananas, right…?”

Silverman blasted the journalist for retweeting a headline without reviewing the content. “Please read the article before you post this stuff, you’re a news outlet. The truth has to matter.” 

Reid tried to frame DeSantis as a power hungry madman, but the article clearly details that states have the power to “create defense forces separate from the national guard,” and by spending the proposed $3.5 million on a “volunteer force of 200 civilians,” Florida would become the 23rd state in the country to do so.  

 

Suspended

The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) officially suspended all tournaments in China, including Hong Kong, which is home to 10 upcoming major tournaments in 2022 that are worth nearly $40 million in prize money. 

The announcement was made in support of 2013 Wimbledon doubles champ Peng Shuai, who is seemingly being held under house arrest over publicly claiming that she had been sexually assautled by a high ranking member of the Chinese government. 

“While we now know where Peng is, I have serious doubts that she is free, safe and not subject to censorship, coercion and intimidation,” WTA CEO Steve Simon said in a statement calling for a “full and transparent investigation – without censorship – into Peng Shuai’s sexual assault accusation.”

“In good conscience, I don’t see how I can ask our athletes to compete there when Peng Shuai is not allowed to communicate freely and has seemingly been pressured to contradict her allegation of sexual assault,” he noted. 

“Given the current state of affairs, I am also greatly concerned about the risks that all of our players and staff could face if we were to hold events in China in 2022,” Simon concluded

 

Sexual Harrassment

NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III alleged that he was sexually harrassed during his time playing on the Washington Football Team while teasing his upcoming book Surviving Washington.

“Sexual harassment victims should share their stories when they are ready not when you want them to,” he tweeted last week. “The book is not about other people’s experiences with sexual harassment in Washington. Its [sic] about my experience with sexual harassment in Washington. Hopefully you will listen.”

“I’m going to tell you the truth about what happened in that playoff game in 2012 against Seattle,” he said in a prior Twitter video. “I’m going to detail the medical mismanagement that I received during my time in Washington.” 

“I’m going to open your eyes to the sexual harassment that permeated the walls of that building, and give you a deep dive into a power struggle between one of the most powerful coaches in all of sports and an owner that many of you want gone.”

 

Sidestepping 

Alec Baldwin deflected blame for fatally shooting “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of their film despite pulling the trigger.

“There’s only one question that needs to be resolved, just one: where did the live round come from?” Baldwin said in an interview with ABC News. 

“Someone put a live bullet in a gun. A live bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property,” he continued. “Someone is ​responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me.”

Two of the film’s crew members have filed civil suits claiming that Baldwin, as the movie’s producer, is responsible for the unsafe working conditions on the set. 

 

Not Worth It

Mega-rich A-list actor George Clooney turned down an airline ad that would have paid him $35 million for a single day of work.  

“Well, yeah. I was offered $35 million for one day’s work for an airline commercial, but I talked to [my wife] about it and we decided it’s not worth it,” Clooney commented. 

“In general, there just aren’t that many great parts — and, look, I don’t have to act,” he continued. “My wife and I had this conversation when I turned 60 this summer. I said, ‘I can still bounce around pretty good, and we both love what we do. But we gotta make sure we don’t book ourselves silly.’ So part of it is just us making sure we live our lives.”

It wasn’t just his net worth that factored into the decision, the “Ocean’s 11” star noted the airline was headquartered in “a country that, although it’s an ally, is questionable at times, and so I thought: ‘Well, if it takes a minute’s sleep away from me, it’s not worth it.’” 

 

Horrifying

Embattled former reality star Josh Duggar allegedly downloaded a disgusting video of a “3-month-old baby being tortured and sexually abused,” according to a DOJ agent who testified at his child pornography trial on Thursday.  

“The infant is crying and screaming. It’s one of the most offensive videos that I’m familiar with throughout my whole career,” revealed James Fottrell, a forensics investigator. In the video, the baby was sickly tortured with hot wax while naked on a bed. 

The video is part of a cache of disturbing videos and images that were found on Duggar’s computer. His lawyer alleged that Duggar did not download the images and is the victim of a set up.
