Is Robert De Niro a c***? This sort of thing has been going on for years. But in the latest sweepstakes, the chronology had gone like this:
Samantha Bee dropped a C-bomb on Ivanka Trump, who Michelle Wolf had already compared to a fully loaded diaper.
Then, last night, it happened again! Turning his powerful intellect loose, Robert De Niro offered this speech, presumably working from prompter:
DE NIRO (6/10/18): I’m gonna say one thing: F*ck Trump!We'd say that's solid, thought-provoking. And we've heard that he writes his own stuff!
[STANDING OVATION. RAISES BOTH FISTS]
It’s no longer "Down with Trump." It’s "F*ck Trump.”
All the jugglers and the clowns cheered the latest political analyst. Inside our plushly appointed Larry David/Whoopi Goldberg Celebrity Vote Loss Viewing Chamber, one of the analysts mordantly asked, "Is Robert De Niro a c***?"
(To see the jugglers and the clowns in 1998, you can just click here. Sadly, this is the team we have chosen. Or is it the team which chose us?)
For what it's worth, this is the sort of thing we mean when we say it's all anthropology now. Our struggling species, Homo sapiens, simply wasn't built for this. We need an external enemy fast. Beyond that, we badly need to get rid of talk radio, corporate "cable news" and, of course, The Net.
We simply weren't built for this new type of game. We don't know how to play it. Coming tomorrow:
Folk who say Rachel's their friend.
As predicted: Two weeks later, have you seen any media reporter ask why TBS allowed Samantha Bee to deliver her scripted C-bomb?
Of course you haven't! Also, you never will. Nor have you seen anyone ask if Bee's fiery remark was just a publicity play.
She didn't know the C-bomb was loaded? Citizens, tell the freaking truth—does anyone freaking believe that?
