Hollywood Trashes Donald Trump

Donald Trump was at the top of every A- list mouth and was on the receiving end of several attacks by celebrities at the Emmy awards on Sunday night. 

 Jimmy Kimmel made a crude joke about his home life with wife Melania several award winners took their turn to criticize the Donald.

One comedy director compared him to Hitler while Julia Louis-Dreyfus apologized for the current political situation.  But Jimmy got the upper hand as he led the way in trashing him.

 He stressed that if not for Television and Mark Burnett who created the hit reality TV 'Apprentice where he got his popular phrase you're fired and became famous.The Donald will be at home with his wife Melania while she pretends to be asleep and he ,quietly rubbing her.

He then joked that if Trump wins Burnett will be the first person over 'the wall'. 

Jill Soloway, who created the show 'Transparent', likened Trump to Hitler while backstage. 
While standing with the show's star Jeffrey Tambor, who won best actor, Soloway called the Republican nominee a 'monster'.  

'Trump needs to be called out every chance we get as one of the most dangerous monsters to ever approach our lifetimes.He’s a complete dangerous monster. Any moment I have to call out Donald Trump as the inheritor to Hitler, I will,' she said.

The show, which focuses on a transgender woman played by Tambor, recently delved into Nazi Germany and what it called 'other-izing' of groups of people. 

It explained that's how Hitler rose to power and on Sunday Soloway said Trump is doing the same.   
'Right now, Donald Trump is doing the same thing. He is 'other-izing' people. He calls people pigs if they don’t look like beauty pageant contestants. He blames Muslims and Mexicans for our problems. He makes fun of disabled people. This is 'other-izing' with a capital O.

It has been used in our history before to start and win wars,' Soloway said.
Tambor agreed, adding: 'Ditto.' 

While accepting her fifth consecutive Emmy win for best actress in a comedy for 'Veep!', Louis-Dreyfus said her HBO show has 'torn down the wall between comedy and politics.'
She also said she would 'rebuild that wall and make Mexico pay for it'.

When Courtney B. Vance was announced as the winner for actor in a limited series or a movie for his role as Johnny Cochran in 'The People v. O.J. Simpson', he closed his acceptance speech by saying: 'Obama out, Hillary in.'

Aziz Ansari, who won the Emmy for outstanding writing for a comedy series for Master of None, made jokes about all the people of color getting 'kicked out' after claiming he was voting for Trump.
'Look, it's an election year and after careful consideration I decided I'm going with Trump, which is why I'm also recommending we get rid of all all Muslim and Hispanic nominees from the ceremony immediately. 

'Wow, this would be so much easier if we were at the Oscars. 

'Mom, dad, I know I just thanked you but you need to be escorted out right now. I'm so sorry
'America Ferrera, nice try chaning your name to "America". You're not fooling anybody. You're out,' Ansari said. 

Earlier in the year, Ansari wrote a scathing letter in the New York Times calling Trump 'scary' to him and his family.
