Hollywood and music award shows have predictably become places where the stage is used to promote leftist ideology and to degrade middle America. The 60th annual Grammy Awards, which aired on CBS Sunday night, were no different.
Not only was the event politically charged, things went to a whole new level when twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made an appearance.

Predictable. Boring. Hypocritical. Off-putting.
Americans have taken notice of the act and tuned out, bringing ratings for last night's performance down by 20 percent. From The Hollywood Reporter:
Sunday's Bruno Mars-loving Grammy Awards took a steep ratings spill by the first-available metrics.
The show, which ran a bloated three-and-a-half hours, was off an unfortunate 21 percent from 2017 in early numbers. Overnight returns from Nielsen Media give it a 12.7 rating among households — marking its biggest drop since the 2013, the year after the show swelled following the death of Whitney Houston.
Such a steep drop, however, could very well mean an all-time low for the calendar's biggest music awards show once updated numbers arrive.
You'd think the NFL and producers would get the hint by now, but alas. Ratings for other shows like the Golden Globes and SAG Awards have also been down significantly this season after taking an increasingly political turn.
