"The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads."
Award shows have become a safe space for Hollywood liberals to air their grievances, flaunt their virtue, and piss conservatives off. Monday night's 70th
Annual Emmy Awards were no exception.
Though this time conservatives got to gloat: The show's ratings hit a record-low.
Here are the five moments that had Republicans yelling at their TV (or at Twitter).
1. "Black-ish" actress Jennifer Lewis showed up dressed in all fully-branded Nike attire to show solidarity with former NFL quarterback and current free agent and Nike model Colin Kaepernick.

“I am wearing Nike to applaud them for supporting Colin Kaepernick and his protest against racial injustice and police brutality,” Lewish told Variety at the red-carpet before the show.
“It is really stupid. They can’t even get beautiful with what they are doing. When they protest they get ugly. They get degraded," she told
ost Michael Che said the only white people who thank Jesus are "Republicans and ex-crackheads."

Being Deporable isn't enough.
Hating Trump 24/7 isn't enough.
Now you have to mock Jesus Christ to be Cool.
I dare say if Allah were so treated, MSM would Stroke Out!
"My mother is not watching. She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough."
EMMYS: let us keep Jesus, you keep WEISNTEIN plus all others sexual criminals. You prostitutes can keep your criminals because you can do nothing more than just read a line. You are crap, jerks, not worth. Fill the garbage can with your— Martina Schonfeld (@Patagonia10) September 18, 2018
3. When Che's fellow host and "SNL" star Colin Jost joked that Roseanne Barr's show was picked up by white nationalists.
