Since the election of Donald Trump, the entertainment industry has been in meltdown mode.
Arrogant celebrities still can’t get over the fact that America voted for Trump over Crooked Hillary, and they use every opportunity to show us their anger.
It has made watching television difficult; Americans are sick of being bullied. Elitists celebrities, singers, and actors scold us for voting for a conservative. It has only hurt Hollywood. And sports. And music.
When the ACM awards were announced, country music fans collectively held their breath.
They were on edge, expecting the same kind of Trump-bashing they’ve seen on every other awards show. But when Reba took the stage Sunday night, something was noticeably missing…
“On Sunday night, country music stars gathered for the annual ACM Awards, and viewers praised host Reba McEntire for putting politics on the back burner.
McEntire’s opening monologue largely poked fun at herself, with jokes such as–
‘I first hosted this show in 1986. To put that in perspective, not only was [singer] Kelsea Ballerini not born, her parents weren’t even dating yet.’
Politics have largely dominated award shows, including the Country Music Awards, and many attendees believe they have an obligation, when given a platform, to advocate for their causes.
Watching the ACM Awards tonight and not one mention about politics. Just good music. Way to go ACM. #ACMAWARDS. 851, 58 and 1

Shout-Out to the #ACMawards for keeping politics out of their awards show! It's nice to escape our political differences for 3 hours! @CBS

…The host added that the “theme” was “not to be mean, not to be catty, just to have a great night of entertainment, great music, seeing everybody and introducing new music.”
Imagine that, an entertainment show that’s about having fun! We haven’t seen that in a while.
Liberal entertainers have not gotten off their high horses since 2016. They have polluted TV, movies, music, and sports with their hatred, and regular Americans—conservatives or otherwise—have gotten tired of the agenda.
Apparently, these liberal goons forgot that many, many country music fans are conservative. They certainly aren’t interested in seeing their favorite performers bash their president.
I guess Reba and the people at the ACM’s learned from that blunder and put politics on the back burner.
Looks like it paid off. Not only were fans happy to express their appreciation, but ratings were high. The show got a rating of 7.3/12, much higher than the pathetic 3.2/12 for the political CMA’s.
Hmm, maybe the entertainment industry is learning.
