Most critical thinking individuals had already surmised long before the Trump hysteria that Hollywood was “ground zero” for liberal celebrities living within the cocoon of progressive dogma.

Perhaps no place in America has been more influential in promoting progressive orthodoxy than in this tiny stretch of real estate known as “Hollywood,” where progressive "group thinking" is the holy grail of celebrity elites, and where careers can hang in the balance depending on where you stand politically.

However, there are always exceptions to the rule even within tensile-town.

One such celebrity is Academy Award winner actor Denzel Washington, who was blindsided by a Hollywood reporter at a press event recently while promoting his new film “Fences.”

The incident took place on the red carpet when reporter Nicholas Ballasy decided rather than reporting on the film which was the reason why he was there, decided to get political asking Denzel: “Just wondering who you wound up supporting in the election and why?”

Denzel always the gentlemen attempted to steer the conversation away from politics and back to the reason why he and the reporter were there in the first place, however, the reporter would have none of that, and once again attempted to corner the actor, who seldom gets embroiled within the progressive “echo chamber” of Hollywood.

Visibly annoyed the Denzel responded; “None of your business!”


One would think that with that blunt statement the reporter would have backed off, think again. Not satisfied with the answer the reporter continued pressing the actor “What issue do you hope president-elect Trump tackles? What’s number one, in your mind, with the new administration?”

Once again Denzel attempted to pivot away from politics this time with a more benign response, perhaps hoping this obnoxious reporter would go away. However, the reporter continued, moving away from President Trump to Obama and race.

“Right now, under President Obama, over the last eight years, in your mind… have race relations improved under his leadership?”

Denzel clearly exasperated took a new approach with Ballasy saying; “Race relationships have to do with race relationships,” the actor explained, implying that the president had little to do with the topic.

Denzel continued: “You’re white, or whatever you are, and I’m black, or whatever I am — we’re standing here talking now,” Denzel continued. “That’s how we get things done.”
