Fresh off of smearing a group of Catholic high school boys, Hollywood doubled down on its innate vileness Monday by nominating President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump and White House counselor Kellyanne Conway for Golden Raspberry Awards.

Doled out annually, these “awards” are given to mock (not celebrate) the year’s worst film, producer, actor, supporting actor, actress and supporting actress.

The president was nominated as per the involuntary role he played in Dinesh D’Souza’s “Death of a Nation” and Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 11/9.” Both political documentaries — one of them a smashing success and the other a glaring failure — contained stock footage of the president.

The president and “His Self-Perpetuating Pettiness” received an additional nomination for “Worst Screen Combo” as per “their” role in the films, both of which were released in 2018.

The film by D’Souza, a conservative activist, also contained footage of Melania and Conway. For their roles, they were nominated for “Worst Actress” and “Worst Supporting Actress,” respectively.

It’s not clear what the purpose was of nominating non-actors for involuntary roles they played in documentaries, other than to of course score additional points against the president.

Most members of Hollywood lean heavily to the left politically and have spent the last two years griping endlessly about the president and his allegedly “illegitimate” administration.

D’Souza, a staunch ally of the president, also faced mockery and derision from Hollywood, with his otherwise well-liked movie — it received a 89 percent audience score from Rotten Tomatoes versus the 57 percent received by Moore’s film — being nominated for “Worst Screenplay” and “Worst Remake.”

The latter nomination was based on the conservative activist’s previous film, “Hillary’s America,” which the leftists in Hollywood falsely believe his newest film is a remake of.

It isn’t, as evidenced by simply comparing their trailers.

Here’s the trailer for “Death of a Nation”:

And here’s the trailer for “Hillary’s America”:

“Hillary’s America” took first place last year for “Worst Picture” and “Worst Screenplay,” while D’Souza took first place for “Worst Actor” and “Worst Director.”

There has long been criticism of the Razzies, as the awards are colloquially known, for being injected with so much politics and anti-Trump venom (just like everything else in Hollywood).

This criticism has been leveled again this year:

For people who purport to loathe the president and his base, the folks in Hollywood spend an awful lot of time talking about them, tweeting about them and even nominating them for phony awards.

Apparently, the idea of getting a life — one not rooted in anti-Trump hate — is simply beyond them.
