Will Ferrell Planned To Mock Ronald Reagan’s Alzheimer’s … But Gets This UNEXPECTED Letter that changes EVERYTHING

Published

on

Will Ferrell is a very funny actor, but doing a film where he mocks Ronald Reagan’s Alzheimer’s is definitely over the top. He makes fun of Republicans in his SNL skits, and it’s great humor. We can laugh at ourselves. Making fun of a person with a deadly & debilitating disease like Alzheimer’s is crossing a line, though.

It is a free country, and Ferrell is free to do whatever he likes, but this would turn off a lot of people. Glad he had a change of heart & declined the part after seeing the letter from Reagan’s daughter.

It was recently revealed that Hollywood actor and funnyman Will Ferrell would be working on a new comedy involving President Ronald Reagan’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

The satirical work of fiction would have portrayed Reagan suffering from dementia while still serving as president, and would feature a young aide convincing the former actor that he was simply playing a role to serve out the rest of his term, no doubt with plenty of hi-jinks and low-brow shenanigans along the way.

However, the daughter of Reagan, Patti Davis, has taken serious issue with this particular project, and sent an open letter to Ferrell expressing and explaining her disapproval, according to Breitbart.

“I saw the news bulletin — as did everyone — that you intend to portray my father in the throes of Alzheimer’s for a comedy that you are also producing,” Davis wrote. “Perhaps you have managed to retain some ignorance about Alzheimer’s and other versions of dementia. Perhaps if you knew more, you would not find the subject humorous.”

Davis proceeded to explain some of the devastating effects Alzheimer’s has on individual victims and their families, writing, “I watched as fear invaded my father’s eyes — this man who was never afraid of anything. I heard his voice tremble as he stood in the living room and said, ‘I don’t know where I am.’”

Apparently, this open letter, as well as the outraged cries from others, must have had an effect on Ferrell, as it was announced Friday morning that he would no longer be participating in the project.

Patti Davis, daughter of late President Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan, penned a moving open letter to actor Will Ferrell on Thursday criticizing his involvement in an upcoming comedic film that will satirize President Reagan’s tragic battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

The film, based on a 2015 Black List script, centers on a fictional story in which President Reagan begins suffering from dementia shortly after a landslide reelection victory in 1984. A young aide must convince Reagan that he is an actor playing the President in a movie.

Ferrell is attached to play Reagan in the film and will produce it under his Gary Sanchez Productions banner.

Below is Davis’ complete open letter to Ferrell.

Dear Mr. Ferrell,

I saw the news bulletin — as did everyone — that you intend to portray my father in the throes of Alzheimer’s for a comedy that you are also producing. Perhaps you have managed to retain some ignorance about Alzheimer’s and other versions of dementia. Perhaps if you knew more, you would not find the subject humorous.

Alzheimer’s doesn’t care if you are President of the United States or a dockworker. It steals what is most precious to a human being — memories, connections, the familiar landmarks of a lifetime that we all come to rely on to hold our place secure in this world and keep us linked to those we have come to know and love. I watched as fear invaded my father’s eyes — this man who was never afraid of anything. I heard his voice tremble as he stood in the living room and said, “I don’t know where I am.” I watched helplessly as he reached for memories, for words, that were suddenly out of reach and moving farther away. For ten long years he drifted — past the memories that marked his life, past all that was familiar…and mercifully, finally past the fear.

There was laughter in those years, but there was never humor.

Alzheimer’s is the ultimate pirate, pillaging a person’s life and leaving an empty landscape behind. It sweeps up entire families, forcing everyone to claw their way through overwhelming grief, confusion, helplessness, and anger. Perhaps for your comedy you would like to visit some dementia facilities. I have — I didn’t find anything comedic there, and my hope would be that if you’re a decent human being, you wouldn’t either.

Twice a week I run a support group called Beyond Alzheimer’s for caregivers and family members of those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. I look into haunted eyes that remind me of my own when my father was ill. I listen to stories of helplessness and loss and am continually moved by the bravery of those who wake up every morning not knowing who their loved one will be that day, or what will be lost. The only certainty with Alzheimer’s is that more will be lost and the disease will always win in the end.

Perhaps you would like to explain to them how this disease is suitable material for a comedy.

Obama Started Bashing Trump Today, And Instantly Everyone Noticed Something Was Seriously Wrong With Him

Hope this isn’t contagious!

Published

on

Obama is at it again. Working on dividing the country just a bit more. It’s bad enough the media has become unhinged and fake, do we need Obama of all people interfering with the government? As if he hasn’t done enough damage as it is.

His list of damage to the United States goes on and on, almost 8 years of destruction and now the United States is divided like never before.

He got the country so far in debt, he almost doubled it, at $19 trillion. He allowed and empowered groups like Black Lives Matter to run amuck. He always wanted more gun control and take away the rights of law-abiding citizens to be able to own firearms. He wouldn’t even announce who the United States was at war with, referring to the Islamic State. He has made dangerous deals, one for example, the uranium deal with the Russians. Yet now with a Republican President, everyone is talking about Russia but ignored that fact.

Second, the world’s most dangerous, irresponsible deal in the history of mankind. The Iranian nuclear deal. Giving billions of American dollars to a regime that calls for the destruction of America on a regular basis. He gave more leeway to this same regime that has no problem building nukes. Obamacare was another fail in his legacy that President Trump is trying to fix.

Watch Obama and see if you can spot what’s wrong with him.

Via Liberty Writers:

Barack Obama is one of the most divisive President’s in US history… easily. After Obama, our race relations are worse than they have ever been

Barack Obama: Some, some of the politics we see, now we, we thought we put that to bed. Uh-I-uh-mean that-uh-that folks lookin… fifty years back. It’s the 21st century.”

Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh… Obama needs to start reading his damn speeches. He can’t even read them off a teleprompter without stuttering and stammering like a squirrel on steroids.

It’s crazy that this man has the gall to attack anyone for being divisive. 

A little more about Obama’s failings via CNS News:

Let’s take a look at President Obama’s economic legacy.

The Washington Examiner opines on President Obama’s remarkable claim that he saved the world economy.

“President Obama … wants to be remembered for … [being] … the savior of the American and global economies. ‘There are things I’m proud of,’ he said, citing Obamacare, then added, ‘Saving the world economy from a Great Depression, that was pretty good.’”

Not so fast. Looking at the economy’s anemic numbers the editors are less than impressed.

“Obama will end eight years in office without presiding over a thriving economy of the sort America enjoyed in the past. It also suggests that even the mediocre growth of recent years depended on high oil prices, which have collapsed by more than half. This is the bitter fruit of creationist economics, the erroneous belief that government activity can somehow conjure new wealth and value.”

The Wall Street Journal is similarly dour about Obama’s economic legacy.

“When did Americans decide that 1% or 2% economic growth is acceptable, that puny wage increases are inevitable, and that we should all merely shrug and get used to the country’s diminished expectations? … the first quarter is further evidence of what has been the weakest economic expansion in the postwar era. … All of this continues the slow-or-slower pace of this entire expansion that began nearly seven years ago. Each year has had a similar GDP dip, and growth has never exceeded 2.5% (2010). The American economy hasn’t grown by more than 3% since 2005 (3.3%), the longest such stretch of malaise that we can find in the Bureau of Economic analysis tables going back to 1930. … Faster growth is possible, but it will take better policies.”

In a column for Bloomberg, Narayana Kocherlakota, looks at what’s happened and compares it to what CBO projected would happen.

“[I]t’s not hard to see why many people are disappointed with the performance of the economy during Obama’s time in office. In January 2009, at the beginning of Obama’s first term, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office issued a 10-year forecast for the U.S. economy, including such indicators as unemployment, gross domestic product, the budget deficit, government debt and interest rates. … The unemployment rate has come closest to expectations. … Elsewhere, the story is less positive. Total income growth in the U.S. has fallen well short of expectations, in both nominal and inflation-adjusted terms. … the federal budget deficit … still much larger than the CBO forecast in 2009 — as is the ratio of government debt to GDP.”

Even with all of these failures, he still can’t seem to stay out of politics and trying to meddle in elections across the country. Then again, he did meddle with Israel’s election so I am not surprised he is not finished with America. I hope President Trump will remain vigilant along with his administration. They are doing an outstanding job within the short amount of time in office. Lots of accomplishments are being made, and promises are being set.

Keep up the great work President Trump.

Michelle Tries To Convince Crowd That She’s A ‘Sex Symbol’ – Gets Wrecked Instead

Published

on

Barack and Michelle have had quite a hard time relinquishing the power they once held ever since the Trumps took over at the White House. As Obama remains obsessed with trolling President Trump with his “shadow government,” Michelle has been obsessed with maintaining the media spotlight she once held as First Lady, where she’s been frantically booking up interviews and public appearances to compete with the beautiful and sweet Melania. But shortly after Michelle decided to tout herself as America’s “sex symbol,” her ridiculous claim has now come back to haunt her, after the American people who have finally had enough of her revolting lies are making their voices known.

After spending the last 8 years race-baiting and blasting our country alongside her treasonous American-hating husband, Michelle is trying desperately to maintain her relevance in American society, which is proving just like her school lunch programs, to be a massive failure. Several weeks ago, rather than slipping into obscurity like we had hoped, Michelle helped host ESPN’s ESPY awards, where just the mere sight of her ugly mug resulted in millions of viewers turning off the show. Breitbart reports the awards show resulted in a historic new low in viewership for ESPN, leaving Michelle embarrassed and licking her wounds. But in her latest pathetic effort to be important, the backlash from Americans this time is massive, and will leave you laughing your ass off.

In a recent interview while bragging about her “accomplishments” as First Lady, Michelle touted herself as America’s “sex symbol,” claiming that she has issues simply walking down the street because men barely can barely contain their lust at the mere sight of her.

“As I got older, I found that men would whistle at me or make comments about how I looked as I walked down the street,” saying that men would routinely cat call as she walked by. “As if my body were their property. As if I were an object to be commented on instead of a full human being with thoughts and feelings of my own.”

The words had barely left her fat lying mouth and people across America were already questioning what alternate reality Michelle Obama resides in where she seriously thinks she’s America’s “sex symbol.” Here’s some of the most politically incorrect responses that were posted in response to Michelle’s claim:

“What sex and what species? Maybe a Congress of Baboons or Silverbacks. Pesky liberals and Democrats, if it is not dead people for votes in a poll, then it is raiding the zoo.”

“More like an abstinence symbol, I think.”

“These people are totally delusional – Obama thinks he’s a straight guy born in Hawaii that did a great job as President – WRONG. Michael thinks he is a woman who was the best first lady every and is a sex symbol in America – WRONG. These two guys need help – they are living in a fantasy world.”

“There is not enough alcohol or drugs available that could ever make Manchelle Obama a sex symbol. That would be like dragging your balls across 5 miles of broken glass just to hear Michael Moore fart in a payphone.”

“Her poor attitude and condescending arrogance is a symbol for abstinence. A person’s charm is what attracts. She is disgusting. Every parent of a horny teenage boy should make certain he has a picture Michelle in his wallet next to the Trojan.”

“Sex symbol? ROFLMAO OMG YOU’RE KILLING ME!”

“She may be a sex symbol on the planet the Predator came from.”

“She is a sex symbol….a symbol for not wanting sex. Picture her every time you look at someone and you definitely won’t want sex.”

“I think I just up threw up in my mouth and shit my self laughing to hard.”

“First, if she’s a sex symbol, what does that make Melania? And in all seriousness, she could be the most beautiful person on the planet, but to me, she’s ugly on the inside.”

It’s truly startling how huge Michelle Obama’s ego is, which apparently has grown exponentially since she left the White House. Sorry Michelle, there’s lots of things you can claim about yourself, but sex symbol is not one of them. Now if you want to tout yourself as the “most race-baiting” or the “most anti-American first lady in American history,” then THAT is claim that the American people can rally behind!

Mom Shares Pic Of Girl Dressed As Melania And Everyone Immediately Noticed ONE Thing

Michelle Will Be FURIOUS When She Sees How Mom Dressed Her Daughter For School’s First Lady Project

An Alabama elementary school teacher assigned her class a presentation project to depict their favorite First Lady. Students were allowed to choose any FLOTUS in history and for whatever reason they wanted, so long as they explained why they picked who they did. One mother took this as an opportunity to get especially creative in helping her daughter put on what was arguably the best demonstration for this assignment that former First Lady Michelle Obama probably didn’t appreciate.

The 8-year-old unnamed student wasn’t told who to pick for her project, she came up with the idea on her own and talented mother helped her achieve it. The end result is the picture of parenting well done, but more importantly, it’s the message that many in America are missing, delivered by a little girl.

Having learned about many notable First Ladies leading up to this project, the little girl chose our current FLOTUS, Melania Trump, as her favorite. The image that apparently stood out to her as the most impressive, was Melania’s Inauguration Day look when she donned a classic “Jackie O” style. Her mother helped her recreate the recent iconic moment, sewing an ensemble that was impressively identical to Melania’s and styling her daughter’s hair in the same classy, yet understated up-do. However, what she was holding represented a little piece of another FLOTUS as perhaps an underlying message.

The second grader held a Tiffany’s box that was a replica of the gift she gave Michelle Obama when they former First Couple greeted their replacements at the White House on that Inaugural morning. The response Michelle gave Melania when she handed her the gift, sent shock waves around the country as she seemingly couldn’t control her face or hide her hate the second she accepted it.

Michelle probably doesn’t like that her time as FLOTUS didn’t leave an impression on the young generation enough for this girl or anyone else to have picked her to honor. What’s most impressive is not only how perfect this little girl looked as Melania but that we finally have a First Lady that girls can look up to and be inspired by.
