Ruth is that there is reverse. McCarthyism going on in the entertainment industry. Remember that in an ID fifties who Wisconsin senator Joseph McCarthy started accusing people in Hollywood of being Communists. That led to a black list where people were not hide here. The cost McCarthy smeared that. To me it seems anti trump zealots may be doing the same thank your trump supporter. There are bad person. At a number of entertainers believe their careers will be harmed. Should they associated with the new trump administration. What I'm Bennett activists say about that. If you Don golfer people who don't support you you probably won't get. Turned down as much now I know that one of the people that supported. Donald Trump. Was Ted Nugent. So why isn't Ted Nugent performing he's money your big supporter couldn't read that. When you say things like that we don't need beyoncé to come out for us we got the people. That's what you said Donald you send you had to people and you didn't care about other bulk sales are not and the left is to companies are. They just going to be and a shift to. Do we laughed I hope not but that's not the point that I might as but the point is. If you want people to support to go after your supporters don't go after the people who clearly did not support you and that label bad ever get.

Actors who did not animal are clearly out I have always been not and they work when they want but the idea that people are saying I don't know if we do that kids and it doesn't make any sense to me like this argue IQ would dozens and I see that there are people that can happen if you watch even if you watch award shows sometimes when the political ideology is injected it always -- black eye can see how that's not the money without having not for a but that's not the point baby what he is saying.
