Trump might want to run for cover after the shots these ladies just fired at him at the Emmy Awards.
Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, and Lily Tomlin just totally eviscerated Trump in front of the nation, and without once mentioning his name. They really didn’t need to, though — it couldn’t be clearer who they’re referring to in this delicious video.
Here’s the clip:
The three stars, reuniting for “9 to 5” nearly 40 years after the release of the 1980 film, did not hold back. Before announcing the winner for “outstanding supporting actor in a limited series or movie,” they tore into Trump with a vengeance.
“Back in 1980, we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” Jane Fonda said, to cheers from the crowd.
“And in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot!” Lily Tomlin replied, having trouble making herself heard over the sound of the crowd, which at this point increased to a roar.
“Tonight we’re here to recognize some men who conduct themselves with the utmost integrity,” followed Dolly Parton.
It’s not the first time these women have aligned themselves against Donald Trump, either. As reported by the New York Daily News:
‘Tomlin, who stars with Fonda in “Grace and Frankie,” has used the awards show platform to blast Trump before.
‘Backstage at the SAG Awards in January, she compared his political tactics to those employed in Nazi Germany in the 1940s.
‘Jane Fonda also offered the President a line of adult diapers called “Trumpers” during an appearance on the “Late Show” in March.’
As it’s only a matter of time before conservatives start saying celebrities should keep their opinions to themselves, we’d like to remind everyone that two out of the last four Republican presidents had Hollywood experience. Once you’ve elected an idiotic reality star like Trump to the highest office in the land, you don’t really have a leg to stand on when it comes to telling other celebrities to mind their own business.
How long do you think it will be before Trump starts incoherently raging about this on Twitter?
