Another Hollywood awards show, another night of shameful smears about Christians, conservatives, white people, and Republicans.
Emmy host, comedian Michael Che, kicked off the 70th Annual Emmy Awards with a whole laundry list of political jokes, but one comment left the audience feeling noticeably uncomfortable.
“My mother is not watching,” Che said. “She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough.”
He added: “That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”
The show also slammed white people, with a song called “We Solved It,” where stars mocked the large number of white people nominated for Emmys.
At one point, stars Tituss Burgess, Kristen Bell, Sterling K. Brown, and Ricky Martin took the stage—with Martin declaring the song “too white” and kicking off a Latin beat.
Andy Samberg asked if a “straight white male” was welcome in the song, and was “comedically” turned away.
Despite the uncomfortably anti-white opening, the Emmys managed to largely avoid mentioning one of its former nominees: Donald Trump, making only a few nameless, oblique references the hated-by-Hollywood President.
