Conservative Americans have long known that Hollywood isn’t on their side. But when Donald Trump was elected in 2016, the entertainment industry lost its mind. Since then, everything from movies, TV shows, streaming series, and talk shows have spewed anti-Trump, anti-Republican, and pro-leftist content.
But it looks like their chickens have come home to roost.
Hollywood has been in decline ever since it “went woke.” Even Disney has lost over a billion dollars in recent years. But now a new development is hitting one group particularly hard. Late-night talk shows have spent six-plus years burning bridges with conservative Americans. Now, their own industry has turned on them.
Hollywood writers walked off the job late Monday after the major studios failed to reach a new contract with the Writers Guild of America, throwing numerous TV shows and streaming series into jeopardy.
Among the hardest hit will be the late-night comedy shows, including those hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert, who rely on teams of writers to think up their nightly monologues in which they frequently rail against conservatives and all things Trump.
Ouch! Once again, the rich, entitled liberal writers of Hollywood and shutting down an entire industry. They did it once before, in 2007. That strike froze the production of movies and TV shows and nearly crippled the economy of California. Some economists even believe it helped trigger the 2008 recession.
But the shows that will suffer the most are late-night talk shows. These shows need to churn out new episodes every day. And their opening monologues rely heavily on current events. Since 2106, these shows have not stopped bashing Donald Trump and conservative Americans.
Heck, Stephen Colbert has become a virtual Marxist, celebrating socialism as much as he can.
But after insulting millions of Americans on a nightly basis, they are SOL. Without their writers, they can’t put on their shows. They will either revert to re-runs or be forced to produce shows sans jokes.
Yeah, I’m sure audiences will love to watch Jimmy Kimmel without the lazy, poorly-conceived pot-shots at traditional, American values.
- A Hollywood writers’ strike has shut down late-night comedy shows.
- These shows have spent years attacking conservatives and Donald Trump.
- The last writers’ strike shut down Hollywood and wrecked the economy.
