Actors Mark Ruffalo, Alyssa Milano, John Leguizamo, Cynthia Nixon, Amy Schumer, Kathy Najimy, Patricia Arquette, Rosie Perez, and Gina Gershon were joined by Whoopi Goldberg, billionaire left-wing mega-donor Tom Steyer, musicians Common and Andra Day, and documentary filmmakers Michael Moore and Fisher Stevens for the event, which was held at Manhattan’s Town Hall Theater and live-streamed online.
- Sarah Silverman: “if anything has ever made me want to eat an aborted fetus, it’s this law.”
On February 1, the Lady Parts Justice League, (founded by Daily Show creator Lizz Winstead) held a “telethon,” called Life Is a Living Nightmare: A Telethon to Fix It. The fundraiser, hosted by Winstead herself, along with comedian Sarah Silverman, featured almost 4 hours of bizarre content, including abortion charades, an interview with abortionist Willie Parker, and political rants. During one of the charades, Silverman announced that a conscience clause law that prevented aborted fetuses from being used in manufactured food products would be something that “would make her want to eat an aborted fetus.”
The charades were called “shitty law charades” and were introduced by a woman wearing a female genitalia costume. Two of the laws that were meant to be acted out by volunteers were “You cannot use aborted fetuses as ingredients in the manufacture of food products,” and “Clinics are mandated by law to cremate or bury every aborted fetus.”
When the concept of conscience clause laws was explained, Silverman summed up her feelings on religious freedom: “Religious freedom used to be such a beautiful thing cuz it was like this big inclusive thing in the country, and now it’s just this shroud to legalize hate and shit like that.”
After the first law charade was acted out in horrifying detail, with one of the volunteers yelling “kill the baby!”, Winstead explained, “This is fucking batshit. A lot of times they will create laws to make you think that this is some epidemic that needs to be addressed.” Sarah Silverman blurted out, “if anything has ever made me want to eat an aborted fetus, it’s this law.” The law in question, legislated in Oklahoma, was created in response to a claim that a food lab was considering using stem cells to create artificial flavors.
UNHINGED CELEBS AND MICHAEL MOORE: ‘REMOVING TRUMP IS NOT ENOUGH. WE MUST REPLACE THE SYSTEM AND CULTURE’
- Michael Moore during celeb-studded “People’s State of the Union,” : “Removing him ( Trump ), and Pence, and the whole disgusting lot of them… still won’t be enough. We must remove and replace the system and the culture that gave us Trump in the first place.”
- “As we seek to rid ourselves of Trump, we must also cleanse our American soul of our white male privilege”
Other speakers included immigration activists and other members of the anti-Trump “Resistance” movement, many of whom wore T-shirts with the phrase, “We are all Dreamers.”
…Moore, who released an anti-Trump documentary during the 2016 campaign and later mounted an anti-Trump Broadway play, worked himself into a frenzy as he issued a “to-do list” for 2018, beginning with what he called the “widespread massive removal of Republicans from the House and Senate the likes of which this country has never seen.”
“The need to remove him — and also any Democrat who is in the way of removing him — that is, at this point, a moral imperative for each and every one of us,” he added. “Removing him, and Pence, and the whole disgusting lot of them… still won’t be enough. We must remove and replace the system and the culture that gave us Trump in the first place.”
“As we seek to rid ourselves of Trump, we must also cleanse our American soul of our white male privilege,” Moore continued.

DUMB! MULTI-MILLIONAIRE JAY-Z ON LOW BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT UNDER TRUMP: ‘MONEY DOESN’T EQUATE HAPPINESS’
Rapper Jay Z is worth $810 million.
During an interview with Van Jones on CNN, the multi-millionaire rapper did not appear impressed when Jones noted that black unemployment was historically low under the Trump administration
JONES: To give him a little bit of credit too, he is somebody who is now saying, look, I’m growing – I’m dropping black unemployment. Black people are doing well under my administration.
Does he have a point that maybe the Democrats have been giving us good lip service, but no jobs. He may say terrible things, but putting money in our pockets. Does that make him a good leader?
CARTER: No because it’s not about money at the end of the day. Money is not — money doesn’t equate to happiness. It doesn’t. That’s missing the whole point. You treat people like human beings, then — that’s the main point.
You can’t treat someone like — it goes back to the whole thing, you going to treat me really bad and pay me well. It’s not going to lead to happiness. It’s going to lead to, again, the same thing.

Jennifer, who is ranked 19th in show jumping by The United States Equestrian Federation, is shown here aboard a boat in crystal clear, blue waters.

Her boyfriend adopted the same stance as he did on the beach, with eyes squinted and smile wide.

SEAL SLAMS OPRAH: ‘YOU’VE BEEN PART OF THE PROBLEM FOR DECADES FOR IGNORING WEINSTEIN RUMORS…NOW YOU THINK YOU’RE THE SOLUTION’
- Seal to Oprah: ‘When you have been part of the problem for decades… but suddenly they all think you are the solution.’
Seal has lashed out at Oprah Winfrey following her inspirational Golden Globes speech, claiming she knew about the rumors surrounding Harvey Weinstein but did nothing.
The talk show queen’s widely-applauded speech on Sunday night focused on the plight of sexually abused women and the ‘MeToo’ movement.
But the the ‘Kiss From A Rose’ singer accused the media maven of being an example of ‘sanctimonious Hollywood’.
He took to Instagram Wednesday, sharing a shot of Oprah with the disgraced producer at two events with a meme that read: ‘When you have been part of the problem for decades… but suddenly they all think you are the solution.’
The 54-year-old singer took it one step further, captioning the meme that Oprah knew about the various sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein, writing ‘You’d heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad.’
For an added point he hash-tagged the post with ‘#SanctimoniousHollywood.’
