It’s an unspoken rule to stay away from children of politicians, right? Wrong! Especially for educational and Hollywood elites.
Just earlier this month, Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan made a jab at Barron Trump, of all people, during her testimony before the House Judiciary Committee. “While the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron,” Karlan said, attempting to insinuate that President Trump cannot make things so simply because he declares or ‘names’ them. A bit of a reach for sure, despite being just a plain dumb joke.
A bias towards conservatives in Hollywood is also never surprising as they continue to churn out anti-government movies and fill the screen with ‘deplorables.’ However, writers must be out of content because a new screenplay being shopped around is just plain bizarre. Variety reported on a screenplay that just made the annual, coveted ‘Black List’ in Hollywood.
Titled “Barron: A Tale of Love, Loss & Legacy” is considered to be one of “Hollywood’s best-unproduced scripts, which is conducted by surveying 250 top film executives” annually. According to Variety, the screenplay “imagines a younger Barron, ‘fearing the devastating impact that his father’s presidency would have on his personal life, his country and the world at large.” And of all things for young Barron to do, he “sets out to sabotage his father’s 2016 campaign.”
Hollywood is hitting a new level of immoral behavior, not to mention pathetic, when a story about a young boy betraying his father’s presidential run is titillating. A big-screen attempt means the entertainment industry is literally devoting millions of dollars to impose on this young man’s life. How accepting and forward-thinking.
Standard bully behavior, they are going after the easy target in order to punish the ‘big fish,’ a catch they cannot make.
Dear Hollywood: you’ve officially made this year’s Coward List.
