You support, and perhaps even voted for, the most self-congratulatory narcissist in the celebrity world as president of the United States...a man who has only ever known a life of wealth and luxury, has been running his mouth about things he knows little to nothing about from this privileged vantage point for decades, has been involved in numerous scandals and lawsuits for being a cheat and a fraud, has had the most ****ed up first 8 months of any presidential administration in American history, has yet to make good on his campaign promises, and is even being investigated for what may amount to treason if proven. He is divisive, crude, unprofessional, and dishonest--a hypocrite lacking any real convictions or moral fiber.
But those liberal Hollywood elites who criticize him and his supporters in Congress are pretty stupid, eh? They only had to work from humble beginnings to get to where they are now. What do they know about the struggles of those in poverty and of the middle class, right?
Stop acting like these people are ****ing idiots who are completely out of touch with reality, and that hypocrisy doesn't occur on all sides of the political spectrum. Just admit you just disagree with their political leanings, and that's your biggest beef with them using the spotlight to reach as large an audience as possible. Had Kimmel said things that you agreed with, you'd be in here defending him on the grounds of freedom of speech, you hypocrite.

If you actually agree with these celebrities then you should want them to shut up too my dude. What you and them need to realize is that Surtur isn't a unique case. There are tons of people being pushed away from your side because they're sick of what they perceive as a bunch of 1 percenters verbally fellating each other and spending half the time shitting on Trump and morally pontificating to the commoners every time they get together, and the media's failure to paint Trump in a bad light since they have remotely the same level of self-control as Trump does while tweeting.
I don't support Trump, but it's pretty obvious the MSM, the democratic party, and the hollywood elites are seriously ****ing up what should be an easy job, ie. making Trump look bad, because the way they're going about this just comes off as alienating to people. Whether or not you feel feeling alienated in response to this is justified or people being irrational, it is the truth of the situation. If these people chilled the **** out they'd be doing their political message more credit than if they continue to constantly inject it into every facet of life.

I agree with Kimmel's statements on our current healthcare policies, and the proposals to repeal the ACA without offering something better in return. Beyond that, I don't make any effort to seek out the opinions of celebrities. I only know about Kimmel and Kaepernick because they've made headlines. I don't watch Kimmel's show, football, or much TV at all, really.
People holding more conservative values, like Surtur, will always disagree and cringe away from liberal celebrities, regardless of how much or how little they voice their progressive opinions...hence, my point that had Kimmel called for a complete repeal of the ACA, they'd have supported him for it, or have had nothing to say about it at all. Many of the reasons why they're calling for progressive-leaning celebrities to shut up are the same reasons they voted for and/or support Trump as president.
It is true that celebrities are becoming more and more vocal at non-political functions, but so what? If one disagrees, or even if one agrees but is annoyed by their preaching and praising of each other, roll your eyes and power through or tune out altogether. It's that simple. As celebrities, they have a loud voice and far-reaching platform from which to use it, but it's still just another voice. If they held power in office, then it's a different story.
