The liberal elites of Hollywood claim to be all about “tolerance,” but in reality they are only tolerant to the people who think the same way that they do. This was shown once again on Monday night, when Hollywood’s lengthy list of liberal celebrities went into full meltdown mode over the Republican National Convention.
The typical cast of characters of Hollywood liberals who think they know everything about politics took to Twitter to blast what was happening at the RNC. Hollywood actor and director Rob Reiner went so far as to say that the conservative convention made him physically ill.
“Is it just me or is anyone else throwing up right now?” Reiner tweeted.

Objective reporting for the educated American.
Actor Ethan Embry echoed Reiner’s sentiments as well.
“It’s been 30 seconds into the Republican Convention and I’m already throwing up into my mouth,” Embry tweeted.

The singer and actress Bette Midler spent the entire night live-tweeting the RNC. She then falsely claimed that Trump has “delivered zero,” ignoring the many accomplishments of his presidency that include strides in trade, jobs, and immigration reform.
“Trump delivered zero,” she wrote. “The #GOP WILL NEVER ALLOW AFRICAN AMERICANS TO GET AHEAD.”

Alec Baldwin launched a sexist attack on Patty McCloskey who, along with her husband Mark, successfully used firearms to defend her St. Louis home from Black Lives Matter rioters.
“I believe that if she has any more botox, she will need an emergency federal bailout,” Baldwin wrote of her.

The viciously anti-Trump comedian Kathy Griffin mocked the president for inviting former hostages to speak at the convention.
“Trump is now holding some hostages hostage. Really,” she tweeted.

Finally, comedian Wanda Sykes went so far as to say that she needed drugs to get through the night.
““I don’t have enough weed to watch this foolishness,” she wrote.

This serves as a reminder that there is nothing “tolerant” about the modern Democratic Party.
