Hollywood loves drama. It’s a statement that should come with about as much shock as if someone told you that dirty diapers smell bad.
Actos in Tinsel Town are verbose, over-the-top, and dramatic for a living. It’s in their blood, and it’s often the only way that they know how to communicate with the world outside of their Beverly Hills bubble.

The malevolent imagery used by Penn comes at a time in which America is facing a crisis of violence that the liberal left seems to have no response for whatsoever.
