Christian Bale won the Golden Globe award for his role in “Vice” for the role of Dick Cheney. He took time while delivering his acceptance speech.
He thanked Satan for all the inspiration he got to play the role of the former vice president and even called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Cheney “charisma-free assholes”.
After accepting the Golden Globes award for the category of Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Christian Bale thanked Adam McKay, the director of “Vice”, to cast him for the role of a character who is absolutely charisma free and reviled by everybody. From that instance, he would rule the market for playing the role of such characters.
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! https://t.co/ILuK8TFZXi
