Today Donald Trump will have his first press conference in a while and due to a combination of distance work and circumstances I won’t be there to ask questions as I have before, but for those interested here is the question I had planned on asking if I had been able to get there.
“Mr. President Elect, for over 50 years the entertainment industry has derided the Hollywood blacklist of actors and writers who supported the single most murderous ideology of the 20th century.
Given that history of opposing blacklists, what would you say to those in Hollywood and on Broadway who seem to suddenly have no problem blacklisting performers who might either perform for you or suggest support for you and furthermore how surprised have you been to see both an industry and individuals that you worked fine with for decades suddenly turn on you?
Given that this question doesn’t come at the question from the : “Why do you such so bad?” angle I predict that nobody at the press conference will ask anything like it.
