Meryl Streep and Rosie O’Donnell have been making numerous headlines simply by insulting our president-elect.
People are calling these women ‘courageous’ for doing this. But a real hero, Kris Paronto, a survivor of Benghazi, taught these celebrities and Obama a lesson in what courage really is.
“In the last eight years, the office of the president has turned into an office of celebrity. Obama was so concerned with how many times he could be on ‘The Jimmy Fallon Show’ and what he looked like on TV.
He turned the position of Commander-in-Chief into a pop culture thing and pulled away from what the office of the president is all about — leadership,” started Paronto in an interview with Independent Journal Review.
He went on to tell Hollywood actors what they are really for. He held nothing back. “And you know what, you’re a monkey and somebody is turning the crank. You’re here to entertain us.
When you’re gone, we don’t give a sh*t, we will find another monkey to do the job you were doing. The only time I have a real issue with this at all is when these people are looked at as role models,” explained Paronto.
He set his sites on Meryl Streep specifically. “So you know what, Meryl Streep, stop putting others down and go do something else. Be like Pat Tillman, drop everything you’re doing and put your life on the line.
Robert De Niro, you played a cop in the movies, go be a cop on the streets,” said Paronto.
“The same principle applies to these other celebrities. You wore a uniform as a costume. Try putting one on to serve your country,” said Paronto. Check out the full interview here.
