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:
President Joe Biden took a swipe at Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who claimed he was “immunized” despite his status as an unvaccinated NFL player, while visiting Kentucky to survey the area that has been devastated by tornadoes.
Biden, who is reportedly a lifelong Packers fan, spoke to a survivor wearing a Packers beanie, and remarked, “Tell your quarterback he’s got to get the vaccine,” according to a reporter’s tweet.

Former playmate Holly Madison claimed having sex with former Playboy CEO Hugh Hefner for the first time was a “traumatic experience.”
“I definitely was not expecting to be the first one to go that night, but I was wasted,” she said during a podcast. “He was literally pushed on top of me. And after it happened, I was just mortified and embarrassed and it had way more of an emotional impact on me than I thought it would.”
Madison said she “looked up to” and “liked” Hefner a lot, but the public nature of the coupling was out of her “comfort zone,” and she “kind of all of a sudden felt like everybody was going to know about me, and I was horrified by it.”
To maintain her self-respect, she asked Hefner to let her move into the Playboy mansion and he agreed. She lived there from 2001 to 2008, and became one of his trio of girlfriends that starred in the reality show, “The Girls Next Door.”
“I felt like if I didn’t do that I was just going to be haunted by the experience,” she concluded.
Actor Matthew McConaughey elaborated on his decision to refrain from entering the Texas gubernatorial race on the “Today” show.
“I’m not going to say no forever. No, I’m not going to say no forever, absolutely not,” he said. “But this last year and a half, just considering that sacred position of running for governor of the state of Texas, [it was a] very conscious and earnest year and a process I’m so happy I went through.”
“I became very aware of what matters to me, what I think is best for me and the most amount of people at the same time. So I’m never going to say never,” he continued. “Politics is a sacred spot that I have great honor for.”
McConaughey explained that fatherhood and his family is “number one” for him right now, and professionally, his drive still aligns with telling stories in Hollywood.
“We need a new narrative. America needs a new narrative. We need to be reminded of our old narrative. If America is a folk song, we need to be reminded of the original lyrics… but we also need to be reminded that the folk song is still being written.”
After nearly 40 years, long-missing guitarist Frank “Frankie” Little Jr., who belonged to R&B group the O’Jays, was identified as the victim of a homicide by DNA testing.
Ohio police announced that the DNA Doe Project was able to determine that the partial remains they found in a garbage bag behind a business Feb. 18, 1982, belonged to Little Jr., when they were tested against a relative’s genetic sample.
“Frankie was a guitarist and songwriter in the very early O’Jays,” original lead singers Eddie Levert and Walter Williams said Wednesday. “He came with us when we first ventured out of Cleveland and traveled to Los Angeles, but he also was in love with a woman in Cleveland who he missed so much that he soon returned to Cleveland after a short amount of time.”
“That was in the mid-1960s, and we had not heard from him after then. Although this is a tragic ending, we wish his family and friends closure to what appears to be a very sad story,” they added.
A Los Angeles police officer testified that rapper Tory Lanez, 29, who shot at “WAP” rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s feet during an altercation in 2020, shouted “Dance, b—h, dance,” before firing.
The officer said that Megan, 25, “immediately felt pain to her feet, observed blood, fell to the ground, and then crawled to an adjacent driveway of a residence,” and observed Lanez begging and trying to bribe her to suppress the incident, as he was on probation.
A judge ruled that Lanez will stand trial for assault with an unregistered weapon in a manner that caused great bodily injury and carrying a concealed firearm. The trial is slated for Jan. 13, and Lanez has entered a plea of not guilty.
Slap On The Wrist
The nephew of Oscar winner Meryl Streep, who attacked and seriously injured a 19-year-old man in August of 2020 over a road-rage incident, accepted a plea deal that required no jail time and less than $400 in fines.
32-year-old Streep attacked David Peralta-Mera in the parking lot of a Chase Bank after a near collision, video footage confirms the scuffle. Streep was originally charged with felony assault and strangulation, but the charges were downgraded to misdemeanors.
The Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney says the victim, who required emergency brain surgery after the encounter, “caused his own injuries,” according to the video.
Peralta-Mera is suing Streep in civil court, under the claim that his attacker slammed his head on the ground while he called him racial slurs.
“I have no doubt that Streep did not intend to do to David what he did, but I stand by my statement that his behavior that day was extremely violent and was an obscene display of violence,” his lawyer said. “This should not have happened.”
“Interview with the Vampire” author Anne Rice is dead at 80, due to complications from a stroke. Her famous book was turned into a big budget film starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise in 1994, and will become a series on AMC in 2022.
“In her final hours, I sat beside her hospital bed in awe of her accomplishments and her courage, awash in memories of a life that took us from the fog laced hills of the San Francisco Bay Area to the magical streets of New Orleans to the twinkling vistas of Southern California,” her son, best-selling author Christopher Rice announced on Facebook.
