“Do you think we’re living in a fantasy world?” “No, I think I’m the only one who doesn’t live in a fantasy world,” Bill Maher quipped. “But Donald Trump is going to run again. He’s not going away. And he’s a brand now. I see these other politicians who talk like him now. … It’s a brand!”
“I’ve heard people say, ‘Thank God this week is over.’ The battle is over, this chapter is over. This war is just beginning,” Maher warned.
President-elect Joe Biden said Friday that President Donald Trump isn’t “fit for the job,” but he repeatedly refused to endorse growing Democratic calls to impeach him a second time
I am not a fan of Bill Maher, as a rule, but there is no question about his ability to express his view points and push the free speech envelope.
I am, however, a fan of Kanye West and Van Morrison, I appreciate that they have the guts to stand up for what they believe even if their views are not politically correct. That list seems to be growing as the country is facing a current crisis of restricting free speech.
Country musicians Toby Keith and Ricky Skaggs were presented with the National Medal of the Arts by president Donald Trump on Wednesday. The presentation took place on the same day the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump for a historic second time in the wake of the violent insurrection at the Capitol on January 6th.
Skaggs was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2018. A lifelong Republican and evangelical Christian, he voiced his support for Trump in a 2016 interview with the Gospel Herald. “I love [Trump’s] enthusiasm and his fighting spirit,” he said. “He’s not going to let anyone bulldoze over him because he’s a bulldozer himself. Mr. Trump is someone who tears down and rebuilds. I believe Donald Trump is the right person in the right place, and that it’s prophetic.”
Because of Keith’s unwavering military support and jingoistic anthems like “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American),” the Oklahoma native has long been assumed to be a conservative Republican, though as he explained to the Chicago Tribune, he’s actually a former Democrat who is no longer affiliated with either party. In 2017, he performed at Trump’s inauguration ceremony, drawing some criticism.
