Hollywood’s Dialogue Problem

I’ve worked in Hollywood for over 20 years and have always been skeptical when some of my more conservative friends have charged that the Hollywood elite discriminate against those with conservative viewpoints. This charge, I felt, was unwarranted. Sure, we all like to get along with the people we work with, but here

What kind of conservative is President Trump? He must be some kind of conservative, because for nearly 100 days and counting, liberals have poured on him the kind of vitriol they do not reserve for moderates or ideological nobodys.
