Just an FYI, I love my life, and I’m very happy to be living.
In case you didn’t know there is a big uproar in Hollywood over the “Barbie” movie. The movie was nominated for eight Oscar awards but people feel that the Academy should have nominated Margot Robbie for her role as Barbie and Greata Gerwig should have been nominated for Best Director.
I didn’t see the movie, but I have found a bit of irony that the actor playing Ken was nominated for an Oscar who played in a movie that was about female empowerment.
What’s incredibly amusing is that people on the left and right roasted Hillary for jumping into the controversy.
“Greta & Margot, While it can sting to win the box office but not take home the gold, your millions of fans love you. You’re both so much more than Kenough,” Hillary wrote.
Greta & Margot,
While it can sting to win the box office but not take home the gold, your millions of fans love you.
You’re both so much more than Kenough.#HillaryBarbie

“This is probably the worst thing that could’ve happened to them,” one person said, referring to Clinton’s endorsement.

In another stroke of irony, Whoopi Goldberg was weighed in, and here is what she had to say.
“The message of all of that is not lost on me, but one question I have — and maybe Whoopi is the only one that can answer this — when does it become a snub?” Sara Haines asked Goldberg on “The View.” “I know the film, I know the greatness and the money, but that assumes someone else shouldn’t be in there.”
Goldberg said that “everybody doesn’t win” and “you don’t get everything you want to get.”
Hillary could relate to that.
A social media post she made on her account in October 2016 never gets old.
