It’s no secret, Hollywood doesn’t like President Donald Trump.
Sunday’s SAG Awards showed there’s no thawing of the relationship, as the show turned political quickly.
Hollywood actor David Harbour, the star of “Stranger Things,” started off by giving an impassioned political speech. He didn’t specifically mention President Donald Trump by name, but his criticism was thinly veiled. Harbour clearly condemned our president and his supporters, saying, “we will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no hope!”
Harbour’s speech quickly turned threatening: “We will get past the lies. We will hunt monsters, and when we are at a loss against the hypocrisy and casual violence of certain individuals and institutions, we will … punch some people in the face.” The Hollywood crowd gave him a standing ovation.
As the night went on, Ashton Kutcher addressed the room and television cameras to speak to immigrants. Kutcher said, “Good evening, fellow SAG-AFTRA members and everyone at home… and everyone in airports that belong in my America,” in response to President Trump’s executive order temporarily banning travel to the United States from 7 predominately Muslim countries.
