The 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards was supposed to honor the best in U.S. prime time television programming from June 1, 2016 until May 31, 2017, as chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. But it turned out to be more about ripping into the 45th President of the United States.
CBS late night liberal warrior, Stephen Colbert opened the show by lighting up President Trump with a series of insults. Using words like treason, Colbert did all he could to use the Emmy’s as a platform to push his liberal ideology.
But it didn’t stop with Colbert. Jane Fonda and her liberal pal Lily Tomlin took their turns at hitting Trump below the belt.
Tomlin and Fonda, who were joined on stage with Dolly Parton, worked together decades ago in the movie ‘9 to 5.’ The 1980 movie was about three women who work for the biggest ‘sexist egotistical lying hypocritical bigot’ boss on the planet. He thrills in taking advantage of his head female office staff; humiliating, downplaying, and condescending against them whenever conveniently possible, particularly his top assistant Violet (‘Tomlin’). Long exhausted over his gruesome bullishness, Violet, alongside coworkers Doralee (‘Parton’) and Judy (‘Fonda’) comprise comical methods of “doing him in”, when a freak incident occurs. They then manage to kidnap their boss and trap him in his own house, while assuming control of his department, and productivity leaps.
The three ladies were on stage when they spoke about how in the movie they would not “take it working for the biggest sexist egotistical lying hypocritical bigot on the planet in 1980, and they won’t stand for it in 2017. The 2017 remark was referring to Trump. The comments were made by both Fonda and Tomlin. Parton said nothing.
