Ron Howard is one of my favorite directors, and a Hollywood stalwart. Who does Disney call when a blockbuster budget is in the crapper, and the flush has begun? You know who. It’s because Howard will put in the work, and if the movie tanks (yes, it did), his reputation will remain unsullied, and even so, he probably saved the studio from a much worse fate. Also, Ron Howard is known for telling the truth, which is a very rare attribute in Hollywood today.
Faced with an honest question of why Hollywood put Barack Obama in the Ark of the Covenant and kneeled in worship while any achievement of Donald Trump’s is met with scorn, Howard answered honestly.
This is about as introspective as it gets in Hollywood. Boiled down, it says “it takes one to know one, and we know Trump.” The leftists who run and profit by the movie biz, in general, are self-serving, dishonest, morally bankrupt ego manics. They engage in sex for power, threatening careers over money and fame, youth-and-beauty worship, and the most transparent ego-serving, fawning, sycophantic name-dropping imaginable. Again and again, Hollywood scams America for money.
Few people know this better than Ron Howard, who, unlike most of Hollywood, is content to work hard, build his name and fame by his competency, and fairly consistently make good movies. Actors and crew enjoy working with him. You don’t hear about Ron Howard’s latest sex scandal or drug binge.
It’s interesting that Trump’s sins are fairly well aligned with Hollywoods, minus the drug and drinking binges. Trump does what he does stone cold sober, believing that’s how the world works, because as a Queens real estate developer, that’s pretty much how it worked for him his whole life. Ron Howard grew up in Hollywood and largely avoided its yawning chasms of hellishness, and he knows that’s how the world works for the folks who hate Trump for doing what they’d love to do.
Let me ask, how many of these leftist Hollywood types lined up to visit Obama’s White House and curry favor, rub against real power, and then use that to enhance their own careers?
Instead, Trump did his own thing, became his own Spike Lee, and brought along enough of the nation who bought his schtick to gain the White House. The Hollywood leftists hate him for that as much as they hate his public un-PC persona (because in Hollywood, they’re only un-PC in private).
Howard told the truth in one tweet, and exposed the hypocrisy of leftists everywhere, who secretly wish for fame, power, money, and perks, while publicly declaring how things should be “free” to everyone–meaning everyone gets second rate service, pays top price, and pads the accounts of the rich and famous.
Ron Howard knows them, and he is a rarity, because he’s not one of them. They hate Trump because they’re just like him, and they know one when they see one.
