Reagan on Reagan

Hollywood has a way of using history to make an entertaining story which sometimes blurs facts. Michael Reagan, son of the famous Republican President Ronald Reagan, said in an article with Newsmax that the movie ‘The Butler’ was so inaccurate, it might as well be called, ‘The Butler from Another Planet.’ This movie, which made the current President “tear up,” portrays Ronald Reagan to be a racist. Michael Reagan said this is due to the Hollywood liberals who are firmly against Republicans. He said in the article, “But facts don’t matter to Hollywood’s creative propagandists. Truth is too complicated and not dramatic enough for scriptwriters, who think in minute terms, not the big picture, when it comes to a conservative,” Michael went on to say that his father did not see people by their color, and instead saw them as individual Americans. The movie is based on Eugen Allen who was a Whitehouse butler for eight presidents. Michael said that if the Hollywood liberals viewed Americans the same way his father did, the country would be better off.
