At Kennedy Center Honors dinner, Pompeo asks when he'll be loved. Linda Ronstadt responds.

@SAMGREIS

At the State Dept. dinner for the Kennedy Center honorees Mike Pompeo wondered aloud when he would be “loved”. Then Linda Ronstadt got up to get laurels, looked the fucker right in the eye and said “maybe when you stop enabling Donald Trump”. Icon.

23. Isn't the documentary great!

I saw it in the theatre and I don't think it's still out but it's going to be on CNN on New Years Day. I also highly recommend it...

11. I've seen it at another couple of sites. I hope it's true.

Pompeo deserves everything he gets.

13. Source?

Hoping something to be true is extra reason to be skeptical about that thing.
If there's proof, hope is irrelevant.

29. Cool. Thanks for the kick and link, it's looking probable now.

Still seems odd there isn't more out there about it, at least audio. Was this a phone in secure bag event?

A Guardian article linked within your CNN link also quotes Variety, giving some more detail beyond the original tweet from Greisman:

The remark was relayed in a viral tweet by Sam Greisman, son of the actor Sally Field, another honoree.

“Linda Ronstadt got up to get laurels,” he wrote, “looked the fucker right in the eye and said ‘maybe when you stop enabling Donald Trump’. Icon.”

Variety saw the incident slightly differently, reporting: “Ronstadt rose to the microphone a feet away from the host’s table and looked straight ahead. ‘I’d like to say to Mr Pompeo, who wonders when he’ll be loved, it’s when he stops enabling Donald Trump.’ Then she sat down.”

Pompeo, who said “I just read them” after his When Will I Be Loved gag prompted laughter, also said he was “a big fan of Linda Ronstadt … an icon of folk and country music” whom he saluted for “30 albums, 10 Grammys, a bestselling memoir”.

7. Willie Nelson: "There's two kinds of men in the world. Those who have a crush on Linda Ronstadt,

and them who never heard of her."

19. He's right, too. She was pretty much every guy's crush

back in the day. I was no exception.

21. I looked like her back then.

Can't even tell you how many guys with Linda crushes would approach me with "Omg! You look just like Linda Ronstadt!" I even went as her for Halloween a few years-roller skates and shorts. Good times.

22. Lucky you, I guess.

I also crushed on Joan Baez. I met her once. She was friendly, but clearly not interested. Monterey Folk Festival. I was a banjo player, and we ran into each other. Nice conversation, but no sparks. I gave her up for Linda.

6. I mean why not? Get in their face and let them know how we feel.

Ronstadt is worthy of being honored, I'm not so sure about Pompeo. WTF?

12. It is useless to get these hardcore Magats to do right thing.

Instead of shaming them we need to find a good way to punish these shameless crooks.
