You have to hand it to how out-of-touch celebrities like James Corden and other elites are. He has a new segment called #HomeFest where he shows off how the 1% live.
Of course, it is all to make great TV although it still took the likes of Ricky Gervais slammed the pathetic optics of how tough Hollywood stars are doing at home when he said,
“After this is over I never want to hear people moaning about the welfare state again, I never want to hear people moaning about nurses again. Or porters…These people are doing 14-hour shifts and not complaining. Wearing masks, and being left with sores, after risking their own health and their families’ health selflessly. But then I see someone complaining about being in a mansion with a swimming pool. And, you know, honestly, I just don’t want to hear it.”
Over Easter, Corden live-streamed Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi who showed off her monstrous double fridge stuffed with gallons of ice cream while so many of her constituents are lining up at food banks or defecating on the sidewalks. While there was a segment full of leading questions laced with Trump Derangement Syndrome, it is still astonishing that Pelosi conveniently forgets her own actions amidst the crisis.
We get that late shows are supposed to have entertainment elements to them. Still one has to question the judgment of Pelosi to resort to such antics in the middle of a crisis. The freezer is a perfect metaphor given her constant obfuscation around approving rescue packages to help the government save the very people that elected her.
