Actor Christian Bale accepted the Golden Globe award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for his role in the film “Vice.”
Bale plays former Vice President Dick Cheney in a story that details the unique role he had in George W. Bush’s White House.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, “Bale’s transformation is a sight to behold.” He donned prosthetics to achieve some of the key characteristics of Cheney, but capturing the so-called “evil” of Cheney was all Bale.
“Thank you Satan for the inspiration,” Bale said about the biographical drama-comedy role.
He then offered a challenge to other actors, saying it was a kind of “competition.”
“I will be cornering the market on charisma-free assh*les,” he said. “What do you think, Mitch McConnell next? That would be good, wouldn’t it?”
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) tweeted an article about Bale’s trouble with the law and an alleged assault on a woman and her mother. Cheney said that Satan probably inspired him to do that too.
It isn’t surprising that conservatives lost their minds over the knock over the former vice president.

Naturally, the Church of Satan also responded with their own statement:
To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. As Mr. Bale's own talent and skill won him the award, this is fitting. Hail Christian! Hail Satan! https://t.co/ILuK8TFZXi

And speaking of Fakers – Christian Bale thanking SATAN as his inspiration for portraying VP Dick Cheney. Really? Just to be in you really had to go so low going back to the gutter where you belong! Pathetic! If your wife share the same sentiment you truly belong to each other! https://t.co/mGcC6fznna

Christian Bale compares Dick Cheney to Satan, and we’re supposed to take everything these people say about Donald Trump seriously. No credibility.

You should cover the news rather than tweet about a nobody cracking “jokes” at the expense of one of the greatest public servants the US has ever known

Yet another left wing idiot wins an award from his fellow left wing circle jerk. This British idiot is not half the man as the one he portrayed.

And the inevitable prediction:
Tomorrow humorless Conservative media will be fake outraged about Christian Bale's Golden Globe speech,
"…thank you Satan for giving me inspiration to play this role."
— catsareidiots (@robpriceincali) January 7, 2019
Fox News will be coming after Christian Bale all day tomorrow
Which means Trump will have some bizarre tweet about Bale being the worst Batman

And then there’s the denial by Satan’s publicist:
"A rep. for Satan would like to say that he had nothing to do with this and would appreciate if people would stop comparing him to such an awful monster and mediocre VP."
I imagine this would be Satan's reaction.
