So we had to endure another celebrity award show, this time the Grammy's, as a bunch of multimillionaires bravely spoke truth to power by regurgitating what everyone else there said and thought.
In the middle of this, Hillary Clinton got a cameo reading from Michael Wolff's new book Fire and Fury. Sure, Wolff has been caught stating multiple dubious claims and admits he doesn't even know if what he wrote was true, but whatever. The point here is that no matter how hard you try, you just can't make Hillary Clinton cool.
Presidents and politicians certainly don't have to be cool. But for some reason, the Left has tried to shove down our throats that a sick, awkward (or possibly drunk), pandering yet vacuous individual is "cool" or "hip."
Yes, her husband--despite his womanizing and perhaps rapey ways--was quite charismatic. Bill seems down-to-earth and like a guy you would like to get to know (although never leave your daughter alone with). Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is about as fake and hollow as you could imagine. It's incredible that the mainstream Left can't see that.
It really screams that the mainstream is out of touch. What used to be cool; MTV, celebrities, etc. are now just a bunch of virtue signaling millionaires who whine about nameless trolls on social media who say mean things. Perhaps conservatism really is the new counterculture and Leftwing celebrities are the new church ladies telling us that rock music is the work of the Devil.
I never thought it would have come to the point that the Right is "cool" of even coolish, but here we are.
