The Bridge Between Entertainment & Politics

With the election we’ve been living through for the better part of a year and now with incoming President Elect Trump the lines have been blurred between entertainment and politics. Trump, love him or hate him, is an entertainer.. made apparent by his latest press conference which even CNN called “Raw & Detailed”.

I think we’re in for quite the ride for the next 4 years and should brace ourselves for the impact of a presidency that becomes a focal point of the entertainment world.

Here are a few of the latest quotes from celebrities on President Elect Trump.

“This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kinda gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” she said. “Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”
