Actor Christian Bale Thanks Satan for Inspiring Him in Role as Dick Cheney

Actor Christian Bale thanked Satan last night when he accepted the Golden Globe award for best actor in a musical or comedy for his role as former Vice President Dick Cheney in the film, “Vice.”

During his acceptance speech, Bale said, “Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role.”

Before thanking Satan, Bale took a shot at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), calling both the senator and Cheney “charisma-free assh***s.”

The actor said that “Vice” director and writer Adam McKay said “‘I’ve got to find somebody who can be absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody.’ And he went, ‘Ah it’s got to be Bale in it.’ Thank you, and for all the competition, I will be cornering the market on charisma-free assholes.”

“What do you think, Mitch McConnell next? That would be good,” continued the actor.

The Church of Satan responded to Bale’s comments last night, writing on Twitter, “To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. As Mr. Bale’s own talent and skill won him the award, this is fitting. Hail Christian! Hail Satan!”

According to Fox News, Bale previously expressed admiration for the former vice president.

Fox Reports:

Bale previously spoke to Fox News about playing Cheney where he expressed his admiration for the former George W. Bush administration member, but never previously spoke about the Republican Majority Leader.

“He was a wonderful family man — he’s a great dad, he’s an avid reader, he has a brain like a vice and he constantly reads history,” Bale told Fox News of Cheney at the premiere of “Vice” on Dec. 11 in Beverly Hills, Calif. ”He was very laid-back. He would have been very happy to be a lineman in Wyoming if he hadn’t met Lynne, who said to him, ‘No, that doesn’t cut it. You need some ambition.’ What would have been if they hadn’t met?”

Trump Tells McConnell to Use Nuclear Option to Pass Border Wall Funding

President Trump is urging Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to use the so-called “nuclear option” in order to pass the House spending bill approved last night that provides $5.7 billion for the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and avoids a government shutdown.

In a tweet this morning, the president wrote, “Mitch, use the Nuclear Option and get it done! Our Country is counting on you!”

The “nuclear option” would require a Senate rule change which would allow a simple majority of 51 votes to advance legislation, instead of the usual 60-vote threshold.

Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) floated the idea of using the nuclear option yesterday, writing, “House just passed a bill that fully funds government and enables @realDonaldTrump to secure our border/build the wall. Senate can do same by eliminating the filibuster. 51 votes, same as we do for judges!”

However, Fox News reporter Chad Pergram says enacting the nuclear option could “backfire royally” on Republicans today because they may “have an attendance problem in the Senate today.”

The president also praised House Republicans for their last-minute scrambling to get a stopgap government funding bill passed yesterday that included billions of dollars to fund President Trump’s border wall. The vote passed the House 217-185.

“No matter what happens today in the Senate, Republican House Members should be very proud of themselves. They flew back to Washington from all parts of the World in order to vote for Border Security and the Wall. Not one Democrat voted yes, and we won big. I am very proud of you,” he wrote.

Conservative Lawmakers Urge Trump to Veto Spending Bill, Vow to Fight for Border Wall

House Freedom Caucus members are urging President Trump to veto the short-term spending bill that would keep the government funded through February 8 and punt the border wall fight to the 2019 Democratically controlled Congress.

Late last night, the Senate approved the stopgap bill and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stated funding the government with the legislation would show that Republicans are still in control and will not contribute to a government shut down.

“Republicans will continue to fill our duty to govern,” said McConnell.

However, as Breitbart reports, Freedom Caucus members are not buying into the bill.

Last night, caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) gave an impassioned speech on the House floor, urging the President to veto the bill:

“…we are here with a number of my colleagues tonight to say that we’re ready to fight on behalf of all the freedom loving Americans to make sure that we have secure borders and to make sure that never again do we have to worry about terrorists and drug traffickers coming across our southern borders..

I think that it’s appropriate to remind the American people that there is a bad case of Potomac fever up here in Washington, D.C. They forget what they promised the American people and yet what they must do is not forget it this time. Mr. President we’re going to back you up if you veto this bill, we’ll be there, but more importantly, the American people will be there, they’ll be there to support you.

Let’s build the wall and make sure that we do our job in Congress.”

Freedom Caucus member Rep Jim Jordan (R-OH) blasted Congress for “fooling” the American people when it comes to border wall funding: “Everyone knows the line ‘fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me,’” he said.

“The new line should be, ‘fool the American people four times, shame on Congress.”

Jordan continued, “Now they’re talking about kicking it to February 8th, you got to be kidding me. February 8th? When Nancy Pelosi is Speaker? Four different times we promised something and then kicked the can down the road.”

“The House Freedom Caucus is sick of the games. The American people are sick of the games,” said Jordan.

President Trump initially demanded $5 billion for the border wall funding, however, earlier this week the White House indicated they can get the funding through “other ways.”

“We have other ways that we can get to that $5 billion,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

This morning, President Trump took to Twitter, threatening to veto any of the Democrat’s legislation unless it includes border security. He also praised the great work of U.S. Border Patrol, ICE and the military.

“The Democrats, who know Steel Slats (Wall) are necessary for Border Security, are putting politics over Country. What they are just beginning to realize is that I will not sign any of their legislation, including infrastructure, unless it has perfect Border Security. U.S.A. WINS! With so much talk about the Wall, people are losing sight of the great job being done on our Southern Border by Border Patrol, ICE and our great Military. Remember the Caravans? Well, they didn’t get through and none are forming or on their way. Border is tight. Fake News silent!”
