Double-Woke Seven: Daniel Craig Whines That They Tried to Keep Trump and Brexit Out of Our New James Bond Fantasy Film, But They Sadly Failed

Trump and Brexit and RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE!!!

Who's psyched?!

I can't wait to see James Bond's newest mission for the British Soycret Soyvice.

If it seems like the Trump presidency seeps into everything that is good and pure in the world and poisons it. That's because it does. Well, you can now add James Bond to the list of things that the world’s most depressingly omnipresent news story has infected, as Daniel Craig related to Sam Knight for this month’s cover story.

"We struggled to keep Trump out of this film," Craig told Knight of No Time To Die. "But of course it is there. It's always there, whether it’s Trump or whether it's Brexit or whether it’s Russian influence on elections or whatever."

Craig goes on to voice his exasperation at the sudden willingness to turn insular among his fellow Britons: "There are British people working in the top industries in the world and at the top of those industries. We do that and we are good at that. And somehow we’re kind of breaking all that apart. Whether that's breaking from Europe... There is a sort of nihilism, isn't there?"

In other Bonfire of the IPs news:

CBS All Access won't tell us how many people are watching the Fake Star Trek Picard show -- which suggests to me that the numbers are soft -- but we do know how many people are watching in Canada, where it's broadcast over the airwaves. While it's still doing pretty well, it's lost half a million viewers as the series has ground on.

With Episode 5 only clocking in 1.309 million, it lost 111,000 viewers [from episode 4]. That's almost a 30% decline in viewership in just 5 episodes.

The show is losing on average 108,000 viewers per episode. It has lost 542,000 total since the premiere episode.

Sony's doing a Cinderella movie, and they've decided to make the Fairy Godmather "genderless" -- that is, transgender.

Actor Billy Porter recently revealed he will be playing a "genderless" Fairy Godmother in Sony’s upcoming Cinderella film.

The live-action adaptation by Kay Cannon will attempt to modernize the classic tale with an all-star cast and some social messaging.

Porter let the cat out of the bag that the Fairy Godmother would be "genderless" in an interview with CBS News.

I'm sure parents can't wait to bring their little ones to that.

I've mentioned Fake Doctor Who's ratings a lot, but the final, consolidated numbers came in, where they add in everyone who watched the show on-demand/streaming for a week. The finale -- the finale! of the show posted the worst ratings in all of the "New Who" series (that is, since they brought the show back in 2005).

Furthermore, of the lowest ten rated episodes in all of Doctor Who history, going all the way back to the Kennedy assassination (when Doctor Who had the bad luck of premiering), six of the worst-rated episodes occurred this season.

This season -- when they actually add in viewers watching on demand the week after broadcast.

People hate this show so much the BBC had to issue a formal response.

"Doctor Who is a beloved long-running series and we understand that some people will feel attached to a particular idea they have of the Doctor, or that they enjoy certain aspects of the programme more than others. Opinions are strong and this is indicative of the imaginative hold that Doctor Who has -- that so many people engage with it on so many different levels."

Shut the f*** up, c**k.

This actually might be part of a major political issue in the UK. The BBC is funded by forced licensing fees.

But Boris Johnson wants to do away with forcing the public to pay for leftwing propaganda and make the BBC compete for its money.

The creator of Downton Abbey and screenwriter of Gosford Park -- who seems to lean conservative -- says the BBC has put its forced licensing grift at risk with its "ridiculous" bias.

He comes just short of saying the BBC should be abolished, at least as a taxpayer-supported propaganda mill. Which is a major thing from a creative who works a lot with the BBC.

In an apparent attack on the BBC’s political stance and Brexit coverage, the Oscar-winning dramatist told The Mail on Sunday: 'I think it's very difficult to justify tax expenditure being used by a corporation that does not show a broad spectrum of beliefs and philosophies.

'I think if you are going to do it on public money then you do have a responsibility.'

The 70-year-old Tory peer added: 'When you [consider that] the side they are not representing is essentially the majority, then the situation becomes even more ridiculous.'

No one cares about CW's super-#Woke "Batwoman," which is why it's suffering its lowest ratings ever. So's Supergirl. And the CW's other garbage shows aren't doing that great, either.

Meanwhile, DC Comics -- which has disastrously followed the #Woke Marvel model, including hiring non-writer Zoe Quinn to write a book for them (spoiler alert: it was cancelled for low sales) -- might get the axe from newly merged corporate parent AT&T/Warner Bros within a couple of years.

Though the "axe" would just mean licensing its characters to third-party comic book publishers while it retains the rights to exploit them for TV and movies. AT&T and Warner want to get into the streaming game, and DC characters -- while not so hot at the moment -- are at least something.

Still, a lot of comic book writer/artist deadweight would likely be jettisoned.

"The Greta Thunberg of Marvel," Brie Larson, recently tried to remake her terrible public image as the most annoying, entitled cooze in show business by guest-hosting Jimmy Fallon. In that appearance, she -- get this! -- actually smiled a lot, and showed cleavage.

Like, a lot of it. Like, more than you'd think.

At about the same time, she put out a video on Twitter that showed her bouncing, bouncing, jiggling and bouncing as she ran down some stairs.

I kinda think she did that on purpose. No?

It was a short-lived gambit, though, because now she's back to doing another trash Rich Bitch Feminist Pitch.

Audience reaction was so negative -- 318 likes vs. 3600 dislikes -- that Nissan disabled commenting on the ad.

I thought the Japanese were smart.
