Hollywood has not been very kind to Donald Trump.
In fact, they have been downright obnoxious.
I’m sure you remember Meryl Streep’s embarrassing Golden Globes lecture.
Many celebrities have lashed out against Trump over the past year.
Maybe they should have thought that one through a little better…
The Hill reports that Trump will cut NEA and NEH that fund arts and culture. https://t.co/8BFPZqLQ32

From BizPac Review:
While attending an inaugural ball on Friday celebrating the arts, celebrities lashed out at the new president for considering budget cuts that would eliminate art funding.
Trump’s team has been looking at a proposal that would drastically cut federal spending by $10.5 trillion over 10 years, according to The Hill. On the cutting block would be the National Endowment for the Arts, which would be eliminated entirely.
The NEA was allotted $148 million from the federal government in 2016. And while the amount seems inconsequential in a nearly $4 trillion federal budget, it has been targeted as an example of wasteful federal spending.
But Hollywood stars are already fighting back, slamming Trump for considering the budget cuts that would affect the arts.
The move would be a “huge mistake” according to actor Tim Daly, who is also president of the Creative Coalition, which hosted the ball being dubbed “the right to bear arts.”
Federal spending has to be cut.
It’s not an option. It must be done.
Sometimes, you have to cut things that are tough.
