So, Drudge Report got right into the latest eruption of the tension between The Donald and liberal Hollywood. It was Hollywood which supported Hillary Clinton.
And let's cut to the chase. The issue is: Will Trumpism reduce Hollywood to mere entertainment. The players, ranging from producers and directors to the front lines of talent, will they no longer be a force in politics?
During the Golden Globes, megawatt actress Meryl Streep hammered Donald Trump. Among the verbal smackdowns was positioning and packaging him as a bully. Here is the coverage the Drudge Report links to.
The president-elect reacted, of course. He labeled Streep as "over-rated." But the name-calling, although typical in Trumpism, is not the point. The point is power. Trump has it. Absolutely. At least for the next four years.
Hollywood's hold on power is conditional. In essence it depends on how much the world needs the kind of entertainment Hollywood conjures up. Demand can shift. And that process can be given a push by Trumpism.
Hollywood as an institution can fade away. Just consider how Trumpism is retrofitting the tech sector. No longer is its power absolute.
