    Hollywood director Rob Reiner told followers Friday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s latest indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers for hacking during the 2016 campaign makes it “crystal clear that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia in the attack on our Democracy.” Rob Reiner @robreiner It is now crystal clear that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia in the attack on our Democracy. At this point the only way Trump can avoid the consequences of his crimes is to invoke the Moron Defense. “I was too stupid to obstruct or conspire.” VOTE!!! 2:57 PM - Jul 13, 2018

    Director Rob Reiner‘s new movie Shock and Awe is a movie about journalists. According to the movie’s description on Rotten Tomatoes, the film is “based on the true events of Knight Ridder journalists who were the only ones who ‘got it right’ in the lead-up to the 2003 Iraq War when they questioned the true nature of the Bush White House’s justification for the conflict.” Yet, you would be forgiven for not knowing that because this weekend practically no one bought tickets to see the film, which opened in limited release on July 13th. According to Box Office Mojo, for...

    On Sunday's AM Joy, MSNBC host Joy Reid served up a double helping of "Meathead" as liberal film maker Rob Reiner and his wife, Michele Reiner, spent a segment ranting against President Donald Trump and his "hardcore racist" supporters. Michele Reiner invoked Nazi death camps as she called Trump "evil" and likened him to Adolf Hitler. Rob Reiner repeatedly accused Trump supporters of being "racists" if they agree that immigrants who cross the border illegally should be prosecuted, resulting in some being separated from their children during detention as required by law. Early in the segment, Rob Reiner declared: Let's...

    Rob Reiner, a director and longtime advocate for liberal Democratic causes in Hollywood, ripped into Robert De Niro for his “F— Trump” outburst at last Sunday’s Tony Awards, calling the foul-mouthed speech counterproductive. “If you have any interest in trying to preserve the democracy, and put it in the hands of somebody who understands government, who isn’t self-dealing, who cares about this country and the people in this country, then you’re helping Trump,” Reiner said in an interview earlier this week on The Hill’s “Rising” TV show with co-hosts Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton. “You’re helping Trump by saying ‘F—...

    Video at link. Actor and producer Rob Reiner has news for President Trump: He’s the first commander in chief to be supported by the “mainstream media.” The man who starred as “Meathead” in the television series “All in the Family” says Mr. Trump is shielded from criticism by the mainstream media. He made the claim while talking politics Friday with the ladies of ABC’s “The View.” “This is the first time also in American history where we have had a president — every president uses propaganda to sell a policy — Republicans and Democrats,” Mr Reiner said...

    Conservative representation in entertainment merits mudslinging, according to the liberal media. At least, that’s the impression an AM Joy panel gave. In a discussion on April 1 over the new ABC reboot of Roseanne, three guests – including actor and director Rob Reiner – and host Joy Reid levied harsh judgment of the show. The actor and director more commonly known as “Meathead” decided that the problem with Roseanne Barr, a real-life Trump supporter, is that she and her character are too similar. He said, “Audiences have a hard time distinguishing between a character on television and something they see...

    <p>Rob Reiner escalated his attacks on President Donald Trump on Sunday, taking to social media to demand that GOP “patriots” take a stand to “end” what he called the “sickness” of his presidency. The 70-year-old LBJ filmmaker — a frequent critic of the president who previously launched a committee to explore possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race — blasted Trump in a Twitter post in apparent response to a school shooting in Florida this week that left 17 people dead and 15 others injured.</p>

    ...For many, their abiding memory of Tony Booth will be his role as “Scouse git” Mike. With his socialist views - which reflected his own beliefs - and broad Scouse accent, he regularly goaded his bigoted father-in-law Alf Garnett in the 1960s sitcom Till Death Us Do Part.

    "That's right … Nobody's talking about contesting the election, including me," Clinton said, to some groans in the audience. "There is no mechanism." That didn't stop actor Carl Reiner from believing Clinton could one day replace Trump as the commander-in-chief. He tweeted early Wednesday morning about his excitement that the election could be invalidated, and Clinton could be installed as president. Is there anything more exciting that the possibility of Trump's election being invalidated & Hillary rightfully installed as our President? — carl reiner (@carlreiner) September 20, 2017 This isn't the first time liberals have believed in the possibility of...

    Hollywood actor-director Rob Reiner teamed with Atlantic senior editor David Frum, Obama-era government officials, and vocal Donald Trump critics to launch an initiative Tuesday intended to help uncover the extent of Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. “To understand the gravity of Russia’s invasion of our democracy, today we launch Committee to Investigate Russia,” Reiner wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning, linking to the organization’s website: InvestigateRussia.org. The Committee claims to be a “nonprofit, non-partisan resource provided to help Americans recognize and understand the gravity of Russia’s continuing attacks on our democracy,” according to its website. It will be a place where “all relevant information is aggregated...

    When news breaks on a mid-August Saturday, cable news bookers have to get creative on who they can get on their show. Take for example today’s awful civil and deadly unrest in Charlottesville and MSNBC’s curious booking of movie director and actor Rob Reiner. Reiner is an entertainer at heart — and has long been a loud voice of progressive activism — so many viewers of MSNBC were likely delighted to hear what he had to say to host Joy Reid. Reiner went OFF, stating that “this man has been stoking racism for many, many years” before citing Trumps very...

    All this commotion over campaign signs? Proving that more often than not, Republicans are their own worst enemies, a Wayne, New Jersey, councilman has been hit with a harassment complaint after a profanity-laced tirade directed at a fellow party member. Passaic County Regular Republican Organization employee Susan Enderly filed the complaint against Councilman Richard Jasterzbski after a heated argument Sunday about campaign signs being removed from the PCRRO headquarters, according to The Record. Unfortunately for Jasterzbski, the exchange was captured on video… by the woman’s daughter, who was standing right there! “You would be so lucky if I were f—ing...

    Liberal activist and Hollywood director Rob Reiner slammed President Donald Trump on Monday and suggested that Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election was the "greatest attack" on American democracy since Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. "We've had the greatest attack of this democracy since 1941, and we have to understand that," Reiner said on MSNBC. Reiner also suggested that American society might collapse given the pressure Russia placed on democratic institutions in the country. Japan drew the United States into World War II after attacking its naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941, killing...

Shearer, who also voices numerous characters on “The Simpsons,” sued Vivendi S.A. and its subsidiary StudioCanal in October alleging that the companies fraudulently withheld profits from the 1984 film. …

It’s the last gasp and the last throws of people who are just desperately hanging on to this kind of white nationalism that existed prior to LBJ passing the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act and all of...
