State media argues that Trump is bluffing with trade threats, cites pop star as evidence
Chinese state media used Taylor Swift’s criticism of President Trump this week to argue that Trump is bluffing about escalating the ongoing trade war.
The communist government mouth piece, The Global Times published a piece titled “Why Are the Chinese Brushing Aside Trump’s Tweets?” in which writer Mu Lu argues that the Chinese government isn’t worried about Trump warning that he could order American companies to move their production back to the United States with immediate effect.
….better off without them. The vast amounts of money made and stolen by China from the United States, year after year, for decades, will and must STOP. Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing..

“Many people were concerned they would have to suffer a downgraded lifestyle due to Trump’s tariff war against China as he described,” the article states, adding that Trump is surely bluffing because that move would “actually [be] damaging the interests of his own country and people.”
“He vowed to correct trade practices of China by imposing additional tariffs, saying China would pay to help the US make more money. But the truth is many American enterprises are suffering from the tariffs and Americans have to shoulder higher living costs.” the piece claims.
The writer then quotes singer Taylor Swift, who used the platform of the MTV awards and subsequent media interviews to accuse Trump of “gaslighting” those who disagree with him, and saying that she is “very remorseful” that she did not publicly endorse Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“The Chinese people are now aware that Trump would say something impulsively on Twitter regardless of a president’s code of conduct,” the communist propaganda piece argues, adding that “Grammy winner Taylor Swift said in an interview with The Guardianpublished on Friday, Trump is ‘gaslighting the American public into being like, ‘If you hate the president, you hate America.”
The piece also claims that because #TrumpGibberish trended recently on Twitter, it is proof that “Trump’s posts increasingly lack credibility.”
“Trump has turned Twitter into a stage for his political show, where he says things to gain votes for reelection. He repeats what he has done for the US – to provide Americans welfare, and to “make America great again,” it claims adding that “he is actually damaging the interests of his own country and people.”
Joker Star Calls Out Hollywood Hypocrites’ Fake Environmentalism
‘Stop Taking Private Jets’
Joker star Joaquin Phoenix took to the Golden Globes stage Sunday to tell Hollywood’s elite that they cannot lecture the world about saving the environment while taking private jets to award shows.
Phoenix won the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama, and used the platform to call out Hollywood hypocrites.
“It’s really nice that so many people have come up and sent their well wishes to Australia,” Phoenix began, referring to the reaction to horrific wildfires currently ravaging the continent.
“But we have to do more than that. It’s such a beautiful gesture. I’ve not always been a virtuous man … I hope together we can be unified and make some changes.” the actor added.
“It’s great to vote, but sometimes we have to take that responsibility on ourselves and make changes and sacrifices in our own lives and I hope that we can do that,” Phoenix continued.
“We don’t have to take private jets from Palm Springs to the awards, please. I’ll try to do better and I hope you will too.” he asserted, tongue firmly in cheek.

Phoenix’s comments came after host Ricky Gervais joked that the A-listers in attendance ‘had to make your own way here in your own plane didn’t you?’ since Jeffrey Epstein was no longer around.
“Shut up, I know he’s your friend but I don’t care,” Gervais told the rich and overprivileged crowd.
One prime candidate for Phoenix’s ire is surely Leonardo DiCaprio, who has repeatedly used award show platforms to lecture tens of millions of viewers about global warming, despite routinely using a CO2 belching private jet to travel between L.A. and New York.

DiCaprio even once took a round trip of 8,000 miles on a private jet from Cannes to New York and back again to collect an award from a clean-water advocacy group.
After flying on another private jet to attend the soccer World Cup in Brazil in 2014, DiCaprio stayed on a 470-foot yacht owned by oil billionaire Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The yacht uses fuel equal to 83 American household’s annual worth of CO2 emissions.
DiCaprio represents everything that’s wrong with today’s virtue signaling Hollywood elite.
They lecture ordinary Americans about their lifestyle to earn entertainment industry brownie points, while living extravagant, luxury, carbon-spewing lifestyles themselves.
The Golden Globes also saw the rabidly anti-gun Hollywood completely surrounded by a squadron of armed security, including barricades, bomb-sniffing dogs, LAPD officers, and multiple security checkpoints
The New York Daily News quoted Beverly Hill Police Department Capt. Michael Hill as saying, “We have a robust security plan that includes assistance from our local, state, and federal law enforcement partners. Additionally, we will be using the most contemporary technologies in an attempt to ensure the ceremony is held without incident.”
