Hollywood celebrities have been throwing a constant temper tantrum since the election of Donald Trump. These “enlightened” individuals have banded together in a misguided effort to resist Trump’s administration and policies. Now just 24 hours before the Oscar’s, President Trump just rained on their parade and it is hysterical.
On Sunday night the entitled Hollywood elite will gather together to tell each other how important they are. They will sit in their expensive and glitzy attire, drink champagne from crystal stemware and pontificate on how their movie made a different in the world. Over the last several weeks, these celebrities have been angered over Trump’s “travel ban”, which as we know is just a vetting process.
Well, it looks like Trump’s vetting process has worked since the U.S. immigration officials have barred a Syrian cinematographer.
Yes, you may giggle with me over this one.
The Department of Homeland Security reportedly has blocked Khaled Khateeb from traveling to Los Angeles for the Academy Awards. The director was supposed to enter the country on Saturday but that has changed after U.S. officials reportedly found “derogatory information” regarding Khateeb. What that means is anyone’s guess really. It could be that he had some irregularities on his passport or something far worse, but whatever the reason is, he is not getting in.
Khateeb was supposed to attend the award ceremony for his 40-minute Netflix documentary “The White Helmets”. The documentary covers the Syrian civil war and is nominated for Best Documentary Short.
So, Khateeb is an obvious Syrian sympathizer and we know how most Syrians feel about out ally Israel. Is there any real wonder why this man was barred entrance? This is exactly what this vetting process was for, and it obviously working. Who knows what was lurking in this man’s past, but it seems like it was just discovered.
I am sure the left is already is twisting this to prove that somehow Trump hates movies and art, but we know the truth. I am just glad that this man was stopped and that Trump’s vetting process is working.
What do you think? Are you laughing about this as much as I am?
