Kirsters Baish| Beloved comedian and actor Bill Murray just let liberals have it in an interview CNBC. He leveled the playing ground for conservatives in Hollywood with a few short sentences.
The Daily Wire reported that on Friday, Murray took on identity politics and political correctness and claimed that they are taking over comedy. Murray made an appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box and explained that Democrats are separating the people of our country into groups based on identity rather than their beliefs.
Murray stated, “My friend who’s a great comedy writer, Jim Downey, he’s accused of being a right-wing comedy writer, if there is such a thing. ‘No, no,’ he says, ‘I just think the way Democrats handle things is poor. They pick out little pieces of a population and say they represent it—we represent the Hispanics, we represent the LGBT, or something.’ They’re not speaking to everyone at once. It’s almost demeaning to say I’m choosing you, because you’re a splinter group, there’s almost a resentment, to say you’re my people. We’re being separated again by a politician.”
CNBC reported on Murray saying that the comedian and entrepreneur explained to CNBC on Friday that politics in Hollywood has changed after multiple women came forward to make allegations of sexual harassment against different men in the industry. Murray explained during his interview with “Squawk Box,” “If people are monstrous, it eventually comes back. We get justice, but we don’t get it when we want it. …This is unusual. People are getting their justice rather quickly.”
The recent #MeToo movement on social media opened up a whole new world of sexual abuse in Hollywood. Murray went on, “It’s interesting when this kind of movement happens. It creates a kind of compost or fertilizer to make the next stage happen. … Obviously, things swing back and forth.”
On a recent Saturday Night Live skit, Murray portrayed former White House adviser Steve Bannon.
The Hill reported:
Bannon was pushed out of the position in January. This came after he was quoted in the book “Fire and Fury” which was written by New York media writer Michael Wolff. The book was extremely critical of Trump and his family, and some “facts” in the book were later proved to be untrue.
