    OK this really seems like a weird concept...



    Per an article in American Greatness...

    A gruesome new movie “satire” that features liberal elites hunting “deplorables” for sport has studio executives feeling skittish in the wake of several mass shootings that have horrified the nation in recent weeks.

    The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.


    I have to admit, I'm curious...

    Universal Studios Cancels Movie “The Hunt” on Killing Trump Supporters after President Trump Complains

    Who thought this was a good idea?

    The movie features “elites” stalking and killing “deplorables,” a term Hillary Clinton called supporters of Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.

    Actress Hilary Swank and Betty Gilpin from “GLOW” star in the movie, in which the elites hunt down a group of 12 “ordinary” Americans, or as the Reporter writes, “MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.”

    They said "now" was not the right time to see the film.

    FAR more likely that MAGA types will hunt liberals, especially if Trump wins in 2020

    Trump and his ilk won 3 years ago. Their ENTIRE attempt at trying to win the "hearts and minds" of the MAJORITY they displaced has consisted of screaming loudly, "**** YOU, WE WON" at every opportunity since.

    Going by what I see posted here alone I think most Trumpers would hunt non-MAGA types with great relish.

    And I've seen that movie several times. Best is the one with Anthony Hopkins, "The Edge"

    They learned "**** you, we won, from Obama." It's just the new thing that newly elected Presidents say.

    For 3 years, to the exclusion of all else?

    This is why Trump will lose. He hasn't even TRIED to reconcile with his opposition, and to govern for everyone. not just his "base" Every time the matter is brought up Trumpers double down with the racism and "you can leave" bullshit. You have to support Trump entirely and without qualification or you're part of the "Deep State". Compromise to Trumpers requires us to register Republican and wear MAGA hats at the rally. No thanks.

    Look what he did with the infrastructure meeting. He had a chance to act on an issue with bipartisan support and we got a tantrum from a petulant child

    Obama promised infrastructure, raised money for it, and then didn't fund it. He had a chance to do something for infrastructure ten years ago.....

    So??? The pubs blocked it, like they tried to block everything Obama proposed. No "****** in the White House" was going to tell Bohner anything

    And Obama wasn't President this last time Trump COULD have acted on an issue where almost ANY action would have widespread approval Instead we got this crudely staged press conference which ANYONE could see was a totally put up jobe. Trump does these little loyalty tests all the tme and he loses followers with each one By 2020 he'll have the most loyal base possible, with nobody in it.

    They didn't block the infrastructure spending. They went along with it. Obama ended up using the money to pay bureaucrat salaries, rather than for infrastructure.

    So now everyone building highways works for free?

    Cite some proof for that please. Most all building projects include salaries, even for "bureaucrats" like engineers highway planners etc What you are saying makes no sense.

    7 HUGE QUESTIONS REMAIN FOLLOWING ‘THE HUNT’S’ DEMISE

    "Could Blumhouse Productions, led by an ardent anti-Trumper, uncork a thriller where the Deplorables are the heroes? The trailer suggests just that. So does the stalker/prey blueprint of past Hollywood films. No critics got the chance to screen the film, and the studio behind it hasn’t said much about the actual content."
