Anti-Hillary movie chosen as worst film of year at 2017 Razzie Awards

Published

on

A hyperbolic documentary about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has walked away with the dubious honor of being selected the worst film of the year at the 2017 Razzie Awards.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, directed and starring conservative gadfly Dinesh D’Souza swooped in and won the award by beating out Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the annual award ceremony celebrating the worst of the worst in cinema.

Film creator D’Souza was a triple threat, winning for worst film, worst director and worst actor for his appearance in the film.

With a  budget of $5 million, Hillary’s America pulled in $13 million at the box office and racked up a whopping 4 percent rating at movie review website Rotten Tomatoes.

According to New York Times film reviewer Glenn Kenny, “Mr. D’Souza muses from a halfway house where he’s staying as part of the plea deal. In this scene, a dramatic re-enactment, he watches Ms. Clinton announce her campaign for president. ‘What if their plan is to steal — America?’ On these words, Mr. D’Souza’s eyes shift from the ceiling-mounted TV display to stare straight into the camera. It’s very Dramatic Chipmunk.”

Alerted that he was the recipient of the three awards, D’Souza responded, “The reason you’re giving it to me is because you’re very upset that [Donald] Trump won.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress Becky Turner won the top award for her portrayal of Clinton.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

on

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.

Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
