Rosie O’Donnell – who isn’t looking super great these days, to the extent that one could say she ever did – appeared on ultra-progressive David Pakman’s show, during which she took the opportunity to predictably trash her arch-nemesis, Trump.
But she also took aim at RFK Jr., who has threatened the re-coronation of the Brandon entity in 2024.
“I think that any kind of third party that’s going to take away from the much-needed Democratic votes in order to save the country from a fascist ideology that we’re now on the slop downwards towards… And I hope that Bobby Kennedy would not do what he’s done now.”
This individual whom we are expected to rely upon for political wisdom appears to not know that Bobby Kennedy is running inside the Democrat Party machine, not as a third-party candidate.
But let’s hear more, as she so evidently is an authority on electoral politics.
“[RFK Jr.] has some conspiracy theories. And, you know, I think he’s a danger in many ways to the outcome that I and millions of others want, which is the Democrats to win.”
And there you have it. None of the concern with these kind of celebrity-pundits is about policy or a vision of the future because they don’t know anything about policy and they don’t have any vision for improving upon the status quo.
Politics, to this class of people, is merely a diversion of the same kind that a game of polo might provide. Either way, their lot in life is not going to substantially change regardless of which of the two wings of the duopoly wins because they both serve this class of people first.
Joe Biden said as much when he promised that “nothing will fundamentally change” once he was elected.
Rosie has turned her personal beef with Trump into a political one because she can. There is no one in her circle to call her out because these celebrities surround themselves with sycophants. When Rosie appears on a show like David Pakman, she gets the velvet glove treatment. In this way, she is permitted to masturbatorily get high on her own supply, skating off of her undeserved authority as a celebrated actress within liberal circles.
