Fox News host Tucker Carlson dedicated a segment of his Friday show to actress Jennifer Lawrence’s portrayal of the hurricanes that have plagued the southern U.S. lately as “Mother Nature’s Rage” and “wrath” for “ignoring” supposed man-made climate change and – wait for it – electing Donald Trump.
“It’s been proven through science that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it. And the only voice that we really have is through voting,” said Lawrence during an interview with the U.K.’s Channel 4 that was originally supposed to promote her new film “Mother!”
Adding that it was “really startling” to see Trump win, Lawrence said: “You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage [and] wrath.”
Yes, someone actually put those thoughts into words, and the fact that it was a Hollywood actress is no excuse, even by ridiculously low Hollywood actress standards.
“Why is it as people get richer and more famous, sometimes they get sillier and more out of touch?” Tucker asked The Hill’s Joe Concha.
Making it clear that he isn’t a licensed physician, Concha responded that by his estimation Lawrence likely suffers from “acute Trump derangement syndrome.”
“Apparently side effects include blaming a sitting president for hurricanes hitting the U.S. mainland during hurricane season,” Concha said, adding that Lawrence was “exhibit A” for why Americans didn’t listen to all the celebrities who endorsed Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign.
Tucker wondered aloud why the mainstream media has ignored Lawrence’s ridiculous comments.
“Here you have one of the most famous actresses in the world on the eve of what looks like a catastrophe using the storm and the impending human suffering to make a really stupid political statement,” said Carlson. “You’d think like the press would jump on her.”
Concha replied with a call for “empathy” for people like Lawrence: “flying a private jet over to London and getting over the angst of hurricanes that are no threat to you and blaming a sitting president perhaps for bad karma for creating hurricanes and being able to talk about your job and promoting movies while getting paid seven figures. I think that’s something we can all relate to,” Concha said.
“Being a celebrity is bad for your soul,” Tucker concluded.
