‘The Five’ reacts to actors backtracking on Trump donor boycott


>>LIBERAL CELEBRITIES, NOW BACKTRACKING AFTER CALLING FOR TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO BE OUTE OUTED. CLAIMING THEY WERE “MISINTERPRETED.” HE POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA THAT HE DOESN’T SUPPORT DISCRIMINATION OF ANY KIND AND RETWEETED THE STATEMENT SAYING, “I COULDN’T HAVE SAID IT BETTER.” SO, YOU HAVE WORKED IN HOLLYWOOD FOR A LOT OF TIME. YOU WORK WITH A LOT OF CELEBRITIES. WERE YOU SURPRISED TO SEE BACKLASH ON THE LEFT WAS TO MARK>>THANK GOODNESS FOR WHOOPI GOLDBERG. I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH WHAT SHE SAID. THERE IS NO WAY THAT ERIC McCORMICK WAS MISQUOTED. HE SAID EXACTLY WHAT HE THOUGHT. GIVE ME A LIST OF THE PEOPLE SO I KNOW WHO I DON’T WANT TO WORK WITH. DEBRA MESSING WAS RIGHT THERE TO BACK HIM UP. IT WAS REALLY TERRIFYING. HE IS GUILTY OF SAYING SOMETHING THAT HOLLYWOOD’S IS THINKING AND JUST ISN’T SAYING OUT LOUD. THIS IS PROBABLY THE END OF MY HOLLYWOOD CAREER RIGHT HERE. AFTER THIS, I WILL BE WASHING CARS. IT’S GREAT. NO, IT’S REALLY SCARY, AND THERE’S THIS BIG RAH RAH IN HOLLYWOOD. BECAUSE THEN THEY ARE THE COOL KID. IT’S LIKE THROWING ROCKS AT A BUILDING AND BREAKING WINDOWS. LOOK AT ME. I DESTROYED SOMETHING.>>NOW, THEIR CLAIM IS THAT WE JUST WANT TRANSPARENCY. WE ARE JUST TRYING TO BRING TRANSPARENCY TO THE PROCESS. BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT ERIC McCORMICK SAID. HE SAID, SO THE REST OF US CAN BE CLEAR ABOUT WHO WE WANT TO WORK WITH. THAT’S NOT ABOUT TRANSPARENCY.>>Juan: I AGREE. I THINK THAT THAT WAS OVER THE LINE. I THINK THAT’S WHY YOU SEE HIM GETTING CALLED OUT. I GUESS THAT’S CITIZENS UNITED. POLITICAL DONATIONS ARE THE EQUIVALENT OF FREE SPEECH. WELL, IF IT’S FREE SPEECH, LET US HEAR YOU. WE WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY. THAT’S WHY WHEN YOU SAW JOAQUIN CASTRO, HE SAID, OH, HERE’S THE LIST OF TRUMP DONORS. THE RIGHT PEOPLE GOT SO UPSET. HERE’S A LIST OF THE PEOPLE STEVE ROSS IS INVITING TO A FUND-RAISING EVENT. WHAT’S SO SECRET? WHY SHUNTED AMERICANS KNOW?>>Jesse: BECAUSE THE LEFT ARE CRAZY. THEY WILL PROBABLY TRY TO ASSAULT THESE PEOPLE.>>Jesse: THE RIGHT DOES NOT BOY CAT OR ANY OF THAT STUFF.>>PERMISSION GRANTED.>>Jesse: A LOT OF THESE HOLLYWOOD ACTRESSES ARE VERY CODDLED. THEY’VE NEVER BEEN TOLD NO. THEY HAVE A TEAM AROUND THEM TELLING THAT EVERYTHING THEY’RE DOING IS NOBLE AND RIGHTEOUS. WHEN THEY GO OUT AND DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS AND SAY LET’S BLACKLIST OUR OWN FELLOW ACTORS AND ACTRESSES. THEIR TEAM FINALLY GETS AROUND THEM AND SAYS, “THIS IS TRASHY. YOU CAN’T DO THAT.” IT’S LIKE A CHILD GETTING SLAPPED DOWN AND THEN THEY HAVE TO WALK IT BACK. HE WAS VERY CLEAR WHEN HE EXPLAINED IT. IT’S LIKE SOMEONE STEALS YOUR BIKE, AND THEN YOU SAY, I WAS JUST BORROWING IT. NO YOU WEREN’T. YOU WERE RACING AND THE OTHER DIRECTION. BUT, YOU KNOW, THEY’VE GOT TO LEARN THEIR LESSON. A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE DON’T REALLY KNOW A LOT ABOUT THE NEWEST AND ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT, AND THEY ARE VERY EASILY EXPOSED.>>I’M JUST GLAD THAT THIS IS HAPPENING OPENLY. FOR SO MANY YEARS, THIS BLACKLIST STUFF HAPPENED BEFORE CLOSE DOORS. NOW, CELEBRITIES FEEL EMPOWERED TO PUT IT FRONT AND CENTER.>>Dana: THAT’S A VERY GOOD POINT. TWITTER HAS EXPOSED A LOT OF PEOPLE. TWITTER IS FREE SPEECH. IT DOESN’T MAKE IT SMART SPEECH. SO, LIKE I SAID YESTERDAY, THIS ALWAYS GIVES TRUMP ANOTHER MAN IN THE GAME. HE’S JUST LIKE, OH, I’LL TAKE ANOTHER ONE. I’LL TAKE ANOTHER ONE. EVERYBODY’S GOING, OH, BOY. YOU GUYS SHOULD IT SAY THAT. YOU’RE JUST HELPING HIM. IT’S PROBABLY NOT WHAT THEY SET OUT TO DO. I THINK THAT THEY WERE MISUNDER INTERPRETED.>>SO YOU THINK THIS IS GOING TO GET BETTER OR WORSE? IS IT GOING TO GET TO A POINT WHERE CELEBRITIES REALIZE THAT IF THERE IS BACKLASH ON THEIR SIDE, SAYING, HOLD ON, THIS IS NOT A GOOD IDEA, IS THIS GOING TO STOP CUSTOMER>>NO. THE TWEETING WON’T MIGHT S THE TWEETING WON’T MIGHT O THE TWEETING WON’T MIGHT . IT WILL JUST BECOME MORE SECRETIVE. YOU WILL NEVER ADMIT THAT YOU VOTED FOR TRUMP. YOU WILL NEVER ADMIT THAT YOU LEAN TO THE RIGHT. HOLLYWOOD IS FULL OF LIBERTARIANS. IT ALWAYS KILLS ME WHEN THESE HOLLYWOOD PEOPLE LIKE JIM CARREY IS HALFWAY SOCIALIST NOW. IT’S LIKE, DUDE, YOU CAME TO AMERICA WITH NOTHING BUT THE CLOSE ON YOUR BACK, YOU WORKED REALLY HARD, YOU HAD A SKILL AND A WHOLE LOT OF LUCK, AND LOOK AT THAT. YOU’VE ACHIEVED SOMETHING. TO HAVE THESE PEOPLE LIKE TURN THEIR BACK ON THE AMERICAN DREAM, IT’S SAD, BUT IT IS THE REALITY.>>Jesse: HE IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE ALL-TIME GREAT COMEDIES IN THE INDUSTRY, AND THEN HE GOES AND RUINS IT.>>Juan: I DON’T THINK HE RUNS IT. BUT AGAIN, JESSE, THE JOE McCARTHY ERA AND BLACKLISTING WAS DONE BY PEOPLE ON THE RIGHT.>>Dana: THAT’S WHY NOBODY DOES IT ANYMORE.>>Juan: REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED TO JOE McCARTHY? HAVE YOU KNOW DIGNITY?>>Jesse: OKAY. ISN’T IT IRONIC HOW THEY ARE NOW
