"We all lose."

It’s not important to me how you feel about Hollywood or its biggest stars. What matters to me is that people listen to facts instead of operating on heresy and bias.

While there is a real problem with fake news happening in our all-connected world filled with dubious news sites that are in a bigger hurry to break a story than confirm it, so often, much of the problem comes from ourselves and other users misrepresenting stories via social media.

The best advice I can give is to always go to the source to tell if something is real or not. Look at the facts, and then infer what’s happening. We are blessed to have so many resources at our fingertips, especially videos which show irrefutable evidence of fact.

For over a year, Trump’s hate-filled campaign has mocked out countless groups and individuals, mostly via his infamous Twitter account. It is a sickening form of entertainment that distracted us while more nefarious things continued to happen in his campaign, and that are now happening during his transition into the White House.

Nobody is safe from his Twitter tirades, but after he turned his sights on Meryl Streep, many followers flocked to his side to chide the “Hollywood elite” and denounce her speech at the Golden Globes.

Only her speech wasn’t explicitly anti-Trump. It was pro-First Amendment and supported the rights of disabled people. So why are people still against it?
