I don’t think much about “celebrity” opinions. They are just that “opinions” and like analsphincters, everyone has one.

These “court jesters” mistake there financial success at entertaining with the “fatal conceit” that they know it all.

When Princess Di was out digging up land mines or showcasing children’s charities, she was a “celebrity” whose opinion carried weight and I’d listen to it. Ditto the Dali Lama, Mother Theresa, and a few select others.

When Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio jet around and lecture us on “global warming”, “climate change”, or “carbon footprint”, I pay those hypocrites no mind at all.

When the “celebrities” go anti-Trump, I just tune them out.

They’re just noisy losers who can’t remember who pays their salaries.

Argh!
