It's amazing that him and Corrola went to completely opposite ends of the political spectrum
Hollywood is a propaganda arm for the left, they use emotion to manipulate you into taking their side because the rational fact based side doesn't match their narrative
I was just using him in general acting like he has a moral authority to suggest to Americans how we're supposed to act.
This is usually my reaction when Kimmel goes off on something and my brain's like "you were on a show that was explicitly there to see tits bounce"
Carolla may speak about current events but I've never heard him act like he has a moral highground on anything.
I've always wondered why anyone would listen to actor. They make a living pretending to be someone else. Sure they may seem likable or smart in a movie, but those aren't really their words or actions. Is Mel Gibson the charming guy from "what women want" or the guy that abused his wife verbally and physically.
Same for athletes. If I'm looking for advice, I'll turn to people more knowledgeable than myself, not some physical freak that's been coddled his whole life and thinks going to practice for a couple of hours is "the grind".
You must have seen some Kimmel episodes that I didn't.
What constitutes acting like one has a moral high ground on anything? I have a hard time seeing how you'd apply that to one and not the other based on rational criteria.
The way Kimmel is always doing the teary eyed "we have to do something" essentially the "think of the chirren" sorta reaction.
It's also a bit of a "stay in your lane" thing to me. Carrolla, Rogan and them may talk politics but they know ultimately they are podcast guys that are also comedians and stick in that theater. Kimmel his opening monologue isn't funny to me anymore (Fallon either)... always political ranting. Same reason I can't watch Sports Center for more than the Top 10 or Not Top 10 segments.
Let me add I don't really give two shits what celebs and athletes have to say... I just find it annoying when I turn to something to AVOID the political shit.... it's drowning in it and that frustrates me.
I believe it was twice, rather than always (though maybe I missed others?). Once when talking about his own sick kid and once when talking about the shooting in his hometown.
The nature of politics is that it is in everyone's element. The reason custodians don't make headlines is that they are individually bad at attracting attention to their positions. Anyone with a social media account can tell you that political opinions can come from anywhere.
And, ofcourse, there are cases where workaday folks do get national attention for taking on politicians, Joe the Plumber, for instance, and it owed nothing to source of income.
At least recently yeah, I was overstating things I'll admit.
Theyre just wealthy Americans, no more distant from the concerns of "common people" than anybody else with comparable income.
The power of storytelling.
If you ever doubt it...look to Gideon.
I disagree, they're as close to the common people as the lords were close to the peasants in their castles.
Lol, powerful imagery. I'm not saying they're especially close, just that these folks are no more distant than from the common man than everyone else who is out there trying to have an impact on policy.
A deluded industry filled with deluded and material people who feel so good saying "all the right things"
After all is said and done only this is what matters and will remain;
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
Was that some awkward reference to Buentello?
I would look for moral guidande from Hollywood as much as I would let Podesta choose the paintings for my apartment.
I feel like I remember Adam saying on Joe's podcast that he wonders how much how Kimmel's pontificating on his show now is ACTUALLY how he feels or the cost of doing business for him.
Oddly enough, drugs do do all of those things you just said.
