Teen Choice Awards Gets Political – Talks Presidential Election and Police Violence

August 6th, 2016 2:03 PM

Leave it to the annual Teen Choice Awards to place their liberal hands on impressionable minds at such a young age. Partnering with so-called “nonpartisan” Rock the Vote, the organization prides itself as “the largest nonprofit and nonpartisan organization in the United States driving the youth vote to the polls.”  

This would be a stretch as Rock the Vote is notoriously liberal – what other “nonpartisan” group would encourage youth to use sex to pass Obamacare?

On Sunday, the Teen Choice Awards featured WWE star John Cena dressed as Hillary Clinton, actress Victoria Justice dressed as Donald Trump and Key & Peele star Keegan-Michael Key impersonating President Obama before introduced the young audience to the dressed in drag presidential candidates: “This year, we are holding the first ever Teen Choice presidential election. Now you guys get to tell the country who you want for president.”

The audience and viewers were told they could use their smartphones or computers to choose their candidate – Trump or Clinton. Not only did this engage the audience and viewers at home, but it was also a way to capture the contact information of older teenagers who were urged to vote through Rock the Vote’s online registration.

After all votes were counted, the winner was announced at the end of the show and — surprise, surprise – the winner was Clinton.

The awards show also touched on police brutality and the attack at Pulse nightclub by pleading with their viewers to “stop the violence.” Incidentally, there was no mention of “stop radical Islamic terrorists.” 

Even Justin Timberlake used his award acceptance speech as a platform to once again apologize for something that needed no apology – his “mishandling” of his tweet in response to Jesse Willams’s Black Lives Matter speech. 

It must’ve been the white guilt that got to him.  He then told kids a few generic “feel good” things to do  - like listening to their parents, being “part of the solution and not the problem,” and by golly, volunteering in the neighborhoods “where people might look a little different from you.”
