We suspect the left’s reaction to this man speaking his mind will be another childish meltdown.
Bret Easton Ellis says “childish meltdowns” by Hollywood liberals who still can’t accept Donald Trump’s win are ruining his dinners out with friends — and even hurting his relationship with his boyfriend.
In a 35-minute monologue on his latest podcast, the “American Psycho” author says coastal elites who embrace the anti-Trump “resistance” are testing his patience. He talked about a ruined night out at Spago’s, and another dinner spoiled by a millionaire who was furious about “patriarchy.” He also called out Lena Dunham, Barbra Streisand and Meryl Streep.
“You can dislike the fact that Trump was elected, yes, definitely, and yet still understand and accept ultimately that he was elected this time around. Or you can have a complete mental and emotional collapse and let the Trump presidency define you, which I think is absurd. … If you are still losing your s— about Trump, I think you should probably go to a shrink and not let the bad man that was elected define your self-victimization and your life. You are letting him win.”
It’s not just the Hollywood left, it’s millions of deranged leftists who cannot deal with reality and just lash out at everyone and everything. Dunham, Streisand, and Steep are just three prominent examples.
“Barbra Streisand says she’s gaining weight because of Trump. Lena Dunham says she’s losing weight because of Trump. Really? You’re blaming the president for your own problems and neuroses?” Ellis said.
He also wondered why Meryl Streep used her Golden Globe speech in January to talk about Trump.
“Instead of talking about all the filmmakers she had worked with and who had passed away in the last two years — Michael Cimino, Mike Nichols, Nora Ephron, or especially what it was like playing Carrie Fisher in ‘Postcards From the Edge,’ since Fisher had died just two weeks earlier, Streep used this moment to go on an anti-Trump rant for 10 minutes on national TV, instead of eulogizing her friend — again, reinstating the moral superiority of the left and ignoring aesthetics in place of ideology,” Ellis said.
They don’t care about anyone but themselves and just want to vent their childlike rage. Meanwhile, it appears his own boyfriend is suffering from lunatic conspiracy theories that now dominate the media and cranky left:
Ellis said his own boyfriend has relapsed into a struggle with opiates since Trump’s rise.
“What was happening to my boyfriend was also reflective of the epidemic of moral superiority that has engulfed and is now destroying, eating alive, the American left. I cannot count the time my boyfriend has left the house since the election his hair long and tousled, he hasn’t shaved in months, and he’s addicted to three things besides opiates: Russian conspiracies discussed on Reddit, Rachel Maddow detailing Russian conspiracies, and Final Fantasy 15,” Ellis said.
Seemingly the entire left is obsessed with their nutty Russian conspiracy theories, which is ironic considering the left marched in ideological lockstep with the Soviet Union for most of the 20th century. In the end, Ellis has one bit of advice for the lounatic left:
“It’s time to get up, pull on your big-boy pants, and have a stiff drink at the bar,” Ellis said. “Because in the end, we share only one country.”
Big boy pants? More of the patriarchy?!?!
