Jon Stewart, of The Daily Show fame, wrote and directed a new film, Irresistible. It opens in theatres tomorrow.
Denver’s most astute film critic, associate solitary reporter Dan Bowman, slipped unobserved into a private preview of the new movie, which, he tells us, is surely destined to be a blockbuster.
Steve Carell plays the lead role, Gary Zimmer, a leading Democratic political strategist who finds himself supporting a retired Marine Corps Colonel, Jack Hastings (Chris Cooper) who is running for Mayor of a small right-wing town in Wisconsin (the State that cost Hillary Clinton the Presidency). Zimmer is impressed that the Colonel stands up for the rights of undocumented immigrants. But the RNC sends Zimmer’s nemesis, Faith Brewster (Rose Byrne), and the contest for the soul of the Heartland heats up big time.
When Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, told his boss about Irresistible, it took Trump only a few nanoseconds to tell Meadows and associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones that the movie “definitely is about me, ‘cause I’m irresistible to women and to my loyal fans who move heaven and earth to show up, faces unprotected, just like me, at my rallies.”
Meadows winked at Jones, who suppressed a guffaw.
Bowman gave the movie high marks for its script, direction, and acting, saying, also, that he’s very curious what DNC Chair Tom Perez will say about the movie.
Perez just told associate solitary reporter Keith Coleman that he’s pleased that former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina has endorsed Joe Biden for President (https://www.politico.com/news/2020/06/25/carly-fiorina-plans-to-vote-joe-biden-339391 “Trump was totally obnoxious to Carly in 2016,” Perez said, “so turnabout’s fair play.”
Associate solitary reporter Elaine Hartgove, a spokeswoman for the Biden campaign, told Coleman unequivocally that Biden will not pick Fiorina as his running mate. “That would be like Joe Lieberman — who was John Kerry’s running mate in 2004 — endorsing McCain in 2008,” Perez said.
