  • Rob Reiner: Trump a ‘Mentally Ill Sociopath,’ Time to ‘End This Sickness’

    02/19/2018 5:40:54 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 136 replies
    <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.
  • Liberals Believe Clinton Can Still Become President

    "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: 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...

    Spinal Tap has reunited — this time in a Los Angeles court to challenge the French studio Vivendi S.A. for millions in profits from the mockumentary “This Is Spinal Tap.” Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Rob Reiner on Tuesday joined a federal lawsuit filed last year by bandmate and Spinal Tap co-creator Harry Shearer. 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. …

    Monday night in Austin, TX, at the screening for his film “LBJ” in an interview with FOX 7 Austin, liberal actor and director Rob Reiner said the victory of President-elect Donald Trump represents the final fight of the “Civil War.” Reiner said, “Trump is hanging on to the what I’ve said is it’s the last fight of the Civil War. 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...

    Filmmaker, actor and outspoken Donald Trump detractor Rob Reiner says it is impossible to level with the Republican presidential nominee’s bigoted supporters, who are “mostly white males who don’t have college degrees.” In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actor said that there’s “a very serious strain of racism” that runs through those supporting the Republican presidential nominee. “And that’s a kind of disturbing thing, and I don’t think you ever reach those people. I think that they’re impossible to turn around. It’s very disturbing because a lot of these racist ideas have kind of been dormant for a...

    former actor and director Rob Reiner said the real danger in Trump’s words are that his followers “have a violent nature, and a violent streak.” Reiner said, “I can’t believe we’re having a conversation. That we are having a conversation about this kind of talk from a man who is running for president of the United States. The volume of idiocy that comes out of his mouth, you can’t wrap your mind around it. First, he said let’s have a foreign country spy on this country, then he demeans a Gold Star family, now he’s recommending assassination as a remedy...

And they aren't taking messages and orders from us in the media. But they listen to what he says for themselves and vote for him. How do you explain that?" "There are a lot of people who are racist," Reiner quickly replied.

    Filmmaker Rob Reiner made headlines today by arguing that the rise of Donald Trump stems from racism in America and that the media has given him a pass. Reiner accused the media of going easy on Trump, saying that the billionaire businessman is only taken seriously as a political candidate because he is a celebrity. "The words that have been flung out from his mouth are insane!" Reiner said on MSNBC.

    American Sniper is tops at the box office, but don't expect to see former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura lining up at a theater for it. Ventura, a former Navy SEAL, won $1.8 million in a defamation lawsuit last year against the estate of the late Chris Kyle, the SEAL protagonist of the movie, which has sparked debate over whether snipers should be considered heroes. Ventura said Wednesday he won't see the film partly because Kyle is no hero to him.

    Michael Chapman at our sister site reported that Hollywood director Rob Reiner unleashed another anti-Tea Party rant in an interview with Larry King. He compared the Tea Party to the terrorist group Hamas, because apparently both groups are extreme and cannot be negotiated with, and the only solution is to make them go away or “eliminate” them. In Israel, “[Y]ou can’t negotiate with that, you have to say either Hamas goes away and the Palestinian authority takes over all that region and deal with some kind of honest broker here, and create the two-state solution,” said Reiner. The Palestinians...

    Right after Camp Casey the huge media circus/protest in front of George Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas in August of 2005, I was invited to the home of Producer/Director/Actor Rob Reiner to meet and have a chat. Also at that meeting was a major philanthropist (although I didn’t know it at the time) to all causes Clinton, wealthy Stephen Bing. I naïvely believed that I was there because Rob Reiner and Steve Bing were against war. HAH! I was there because Rob and Steve were above all things (even peace and justice) pro-Democrat. At this meeting, the suggestion was made...

    Bill Maher has no qualms about saying that President Obama clearly lied about people being able to keep their health care plans if they liked them, and clashed with DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz over exactly how significant that lie was to the health care debate and whether Obamacare would have been passed in the first place without it. Maher wondered if Obamacare had been passed in the first place if he was more honest about insurance plans. Wasserman-Schultz insisted “it was not a lie,” but Maher shot back, “Because of Obamacare, they are not able to keep [insurance plans]. To...
