“Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak is lending some much-needed advice to his liberal colleagues who use every awards show under the sun to trash President Donald Trump. They’ll surely regret their politically-motivated move to bash the president after hearing what Sajak had to say.
For the most part, Hollywood is chock-full of overpaid, out-of-touch celebrities who have refused to stop trashing President Donald Trump, despite the fact that when they do, their beloved ratings drop lower and lower. There are a few famous folks, however, who have not used their platform to tow the Democratic Party line. Pat Sajak is one of them.
For a man of 72 years, TV personality Pat Sajak has some serious Twitter game. “Bought a case of Florida oranges. Supposed to be 36 of them, but I’ve asked for a recount,” he joked after the contentious midterm elections.
“Instead of a bucket list, I have a phobia list, with which I try to overcome my fears,” Sajak quipped on an earlier occasion. “I scratched two items off yesterday: I tasted tofu and watched a part of a Kardashians episode. The tofu wasn’t quite as bad as I thought it would be.”
Sajak’s recent tweet about the upcoming Golden Globes just might take the cake, though. According to The Daily Caller, the “Wheel Of Fortune” host slammed the upcoming awards ceremony with a suggestion on how to improve its ratings.
The Golden Globes continue to slip in ratings every year as the show pivots toward an increasingly political narrative:
The 2018 Golden Globes were down in the Nielsen ratings compared to last year. The Golden Globes, airing on NBC, drew a 5.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 19 million viewers. That is an approximate drop of approximately 11 percent in the demo and 5 percent in total viewers compared to 2017’s final numbers (5.6, 20 million). [Source: Variety]
Sajak offered up some advice on how to curtail the issue, tweeting, “Here’s a quick fix for the Academy Awards show: expand it to two nights. On the first night, give out awards, and celebrate the history and wonder of movies. On the second night, hold your political rally.”
This is not the first time Sajak has attempted to impart his wisdom on his colleagues in Hollywood, either. “How’s this for a rule? No one who has more than two residences should be allowed to tell others how to live,” he tweeted earlier this month.
It seems that Pat Sajak is the last of a dying breed of good ol’ boys whose fame hasn’t turned them into liberal robots. He is one of only a few celebrities like Clint Eastwood and James Woods who understand that just because they are famous it doesn’t mean they are innately smarter than the rest of us “regular people.”
Viewers used to be able to tune into an awards show and be entertained for a couple of hours. Now, they’d rather have a root canal than listen to the lecture about politics they’re bound to hear. Is it any wonder ratings have slipped to embarrassing lows?
Still, the Hollywood crowd refuses to reverse course. Instead, they are dishing out more of the same nonsense that torpedoed their popularity in the first place. And you know what they say about repeating the same behavior over and over again waiting for a different result.
If you agree with Pat Sajak that celebrities ought to entertain instead of
