“There was one performance this year that stung — it sank its hooks into my heart. Not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. It did its job. It made the audience laugh. It was that moment when the man asking to sit in the most important seat in the country mocked a disabled reporter.”

“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose. We need a principled press to call him on the carpet for every outrage. That’s why our founders enshrined the press and Constitution.
“I ask the Hollywood Foreign Press to join me in supporting the committee to protect journalists because we are going to need them going forward.”
