Running for president of the United States was far from former President Donald Trump’s first foray into the public eye. He was notably in multiple films and television shows, including The Celebrity Apprentice where he held a key role.
His appearances in franchises such as Home Alone and other films was almost as iconic as the Big Apple itself, and he often referenced his appearances. However, since leaving the White House on Jan. 20, there has been an ongoing barrage of harassment from liberals, the world over, who are happen to see the deal maker out of power.
As what is unlikely to be the last twist of a knife, the SAG-AFTRA National Board decided during a Zoom meeting on Saturday to “denying any potential re-admission applications by former member Donald J. Trump.”
So, in laypeople’s terms, Hollywood is just too angry with Trump to allow him to be any part of an organization that so many degenerates have graced for decades.
According to a press release on the organization’s website, the resolution cites concerns, “notably his antagonism of the union’s journalist members and disregard for the values and integrity of the union.”
“Preventing Donald Trump from ever rejoining SAG-AFTRA is more than a symbolic step,” said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris. “It is a resounding statement that threatening or inciting harm against fellow members will not be tolerated. An attack against one is an attack against all.”
The resolution about Trump’s membership included the following gems:
It was done on the grounds that he was allegedly “engaged in actions antagonistic to the interests and integrity of SAG-AFTRA and its members in violation of Article XIV of the Constitution.”
WHEREAS, on or about January 19, 2021, the National Board conducted a probable cause determination in which it found that there was sufficient basis for such charges to proceed to a disciplinary hearing; and
WHEREAS, the Disciplinary Committee had set a hearing to be conducted on February 5, 2021, to hear evidence on the charges, and gave proper and sufficient notice to Trump of the hearing; and
WHEREAS, on February 4, 2021, on the eve of the hearing, Trump submitted a letter of resignation from his membership in SAG-AFTRA to President Carteris; and
WHEREAS, by resigning from SAG-AFTRA, Trump voluntarily relinquished any membership rights he may have had under SAG-AFTRA’s governing documents as well as under federal law; and
WHEREAS, the evidence of Mr. Trump’s misconduct and actions antagonistic to the interests of the union and its members is widely known and has been reported by many media sources; and
WHEREAS, pursuant to Article III(A)(2) of the Constitution, “The National Board has discretion to deny membership to any applicant if, in its judgment, his or her admission to membership would not be in the best interests of the Union;”
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the National Board exercises its discretion pursuant to Article III(A)(2) of the Constitution, as follows:
The National Board hereby finds that the well-documented actions by Donald J. Trump to undermine the peaceful transition of power in the United States, and to undermine the delivery of truthful information to the public by attacking journalists is anathema to the values embodied by SAG-AFTRA and to the members of SAG-AFTRA; and
The National Board hereby finds that any future re-admission to membership of Donald J. Trump would not be in the best interests of the union; and
The National Board hereby directs that any future application for admission to membership in SAG-AFTRA by Donald J. Trump shall be denied.
Essentially, the former president was unphased by every political stumbling block that took down so many well-meaning predecessors, so he was attacked through setups. He amassed such a large and loyal following, that his communication was cut off. And he excelled in so many varied and diverse industries that he has had to be systematically cut off from every sphere of influence. While it is clearly well within the rights of private companies and organizations to treat an individual in the way they’ve treated Trump, they might do well to ask themselves why it has been necessary? What is resonating with the people that they all want to influence so much? Nahh, may as well keep kicking him while he’s down.
