132 July 20th, 2016 Kimberlin Brown Speaks At The RNC Notes: She’s Been Attacked On Social Media, Knows Victims Who Find Hillary Clinton’s Actions & Remarks Repulsive,Voices Concerns For Small Business Owners

Courtesy/PBSnewsHours

Republic National Convention speaker, Kimberlin Brown, best known for her role as evil nurse Sheila Carter, opened her speech on Tuesday night by establishing her soap cred.

Brown stated: “Good evening.  Many of you know me from one of your favorite soap operas, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, and many other television shows and films.  But since we only have One Life to Live  (yes, I did have to throw that in there), I decided to follow other dreams I’m now an avocado grower for all of you guacamole locers, and I also own and operate my own design business.”

Kimberlin who spoke in support of republican presidential nominee, Donlad Trump, went on to address convention goers and the TV cameras: “I’m a member of California’s Businesswomen for Trump. We are comprised of farmers, doctors, small business owners, attorneys and women in just about every field, profession, race and ethnicity. We’re concerned about out of control, unreasonable government regulations that needlessly add costs to doing business and tie us all up in red tape. And don’t get me started about the bewildering tax code and high taxes to boot.”  Brown later added how she has seen first-hand that impact of high taxes on businesses in the country, and, as an actress, has seen television and film productions move out of the country, leading to the loss of behind-the-scenes jobs for cameramen, sound technicians and boom operators.

The former soap also went on the attack of the presumptive presidential democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton by saying: “There’s going to be a time, and I hope soon, for a woman president.  And we have so many outstanding women in Congress and in our state and local governments who are ready for the job now, or in the very near future. But let’s be clear: the Democrats offer up a woman who, when she had a chance to stand up for women, did not do so. Instead, she attacked women, denigrated them, called them liars. And I personally know victims, and they find Hillary’s actions and remarks repulsive. Her comments are comments of convenience only.”

Towards the end of her speech, Brown talked about how she has been attacked on social media:  “Since it was announced that I was speaking to you all tonight,  I have been attacked in social media with all kinds of outrageous insults.  None of which are even remotely true.  The left wants to silence those the disagree with in politics, on college campuses, and in business.  This must stop!”

    Well, I know many business people in CA, too, who are doing just fine. Doctors, lawyers, insurance, retail, entertainment – it’s not the federal gov’t that has the red tape. It’s the *state* of CA, which is thriving economically & came out of the Bush recession like gangbusters, and local *city* ordinances that can make things a lot more difficult for small businesses than the federal gov’t.

    For the record, is this woman for real?? Since WHEN has Donald
    Trump supported ANY type of small business, especially women business owners?? She makes herself sound like she is right out to lunch and delusional as well. I said it with Antonio…these former soap stars should stick to reciting other people’s words, because when they try to write something on their own, it makes them look foolish, uninformed, and desperate for ANY type of spotlight or platform. Sad, really.

    You bet Timmm but I know from past experience on here, if you don’t agree with the Liberals your put down. I think the funniest I heard was that Donald T. hates gays. How many people have to say he’s a nice guy & he uses the (your fired) tough term to get a message across? Hillary C. whole campaign is paid for by Islamic countries, that have thrown gay people off roof’s,buildings and tortured them to death but no matter what anyone is to say some minds are just made up, so hopefully we’ll stop hearing about this now that everyone is done with their speeches.

    Timmm replied

    I know Nikki, ignorance runs wild when it come to politics and religion. I am open minded with both. I tend to lean toward Donald BECAUSE Hillary is the devil without a disguise! Perhaps if there was a third party involved here it may sway me but Mr. Trump is the best choice we have.

    Phoebe replied

    Well, I am not a liberal but I intelligent and sane enough to be very afraid of Donald Trump. He sounds remarkably like Hitler and his hate filled speeches are all predicated upon shrill negativity with no facts to back up his hate filled rhetoric.
    I wish this former soap star no ill will, but it’s funny that Trump was boasting about how he would have nothing but winners and big stars speaking at his convention. Instead we get Scott Baio and this actress whom no one has ever heard of.

    Mr. X replied

    You are exactly right Timmm. Some of those with different views than Kimberlin claim they are tolerant when the truth is they are only tolerant of people who agree with them.

    Problem is, no one knows who she is. KB starred in a couple of soaps a about a hundred years ago so honestly, it doesn’t matter what this nobody has to say. Aside from her, he was only able to get two other has beens–Chachi and that missing link who played Jagger wayyyyyy back in the early 90′s.
    And yes, Trump garners a lot of rage and perhaps we need to look at why that is–he attacked and ridiculed a physically disabled reporter, he’s called immigrants a bunch rapists and killers,he’s made insanely sexist misogynistic comments, and he speaks of wanting to build walls instead of bridges. Moreover, he doesn’t believe in climate change which is the real issue at hand because it negates all the other issues. If our earth is allowed to be destroyed by man, then issues like fracking, Planned Parenthood, the economy, immigration, gun control, jobs health insurance, etc, are all null and void. He’s a demi-God, an abomination.

    In short, he’s an embarrassment to our country. How did he make it this far? Americans cannot be this stupid. And no, I cannot stand Hillary Clinton either. I hate that it has come down to these two crooks–I hate this presidential election with the heat of a thousand suns,

    Back to KM–honestly, does anyone know who she is who did not watch Y&R way back when? It doesn’t matter what the hell she has to say about anything.

    That is not true. One of the very popular actress from B & B was on her twitter last night doing nothing but making fun of D.T. One of the male actors on Y & R seems 2 think D.T. is a racist and against gay people and he loves H.C. who got most of her campaign money from terrorist countries who are known to hang.kill and torture gay people. As a matter of fact most soap opera people are Liberal.

    Soaphound replied

    Tamara, I totally agree and am constantly awed by people who aren’t bothered by any of Trump’s questionable actions, yet are ready to crucify Hillary Clinton if they don’t like the color of her suit. Why this double standard? They even managed to blame Melania’s plagiarism (she did say on TODAY she helped write her own speech) on Mrs. Clinton…and they get away with it ! My grandmother used to say people deserve what they get. What worries me is if Trump is elected, we’re all “gonna get it”.

    I watched Kimberlin give her speech and saw absolutely nothing wrong with it. What is wrong with people giving her a hard time on social media? I thought there was a 1st amendment in America. With that being said, I am glad to be a Canadian and not to have the choice of my friends in the USA. However, I certainly would NOT vote for Ms. Clinton

    Patrick replied

    I am just so taken aback… that the view of Hillary Rodham Clinton is a criminal ?

    as secretary of state… she had that much power ? not even the president or what have you… didn’t not sign of on anything she did?

    as for her “e-mails”

    argh????

    I realize that “computers” have been around

    what about the technology of how the government exchanged e-mail ?

    it would seem to me… this was a simple case of human error

    human error that did not bring about ISIS… or start an international warfare

    like we are in the midst

    argh! I am watching the RNC just tear and rip at HIllary with the same things.. over and over

    “Make America Great again”

    seriously ?

    back to “e-mails” I wonder if the prior secretary of state had the same technologies that are made available to all the government constituants…

    does any one know.. IF Ms. Clinton is in fact the only employee who made this hapless err in judement?

    whos to say… she hasn’t learned from all of her past employments ?

    I find it so staggeringly interesting… to think that America could and should have their first female president

    LOL

    and it’s Mr. and Misses Bill and Hillary Rodham-Clinton

    w/ Chelsea
    w/their two beautiful grand children

    I get so excited to wanting them back in the white house

    ( this is my copied post from the July 14th thread )

    “Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton…. Bravo to you Ms. for forging onward

    I know that your backbone and care of the political system… is what you are about

    Our first Lady President… gets my vote ”

    I’d like to emphasis “care of the political system”

    she has spent her lifetime in the political arena… why would she do any less

    at this point in time… it’s keeping what we have… a stable climate and protecting America from warfare

    WHAT BOGGLES the mind.. is that women… do not see another WOMAN after all these centuries gone by ? capable ?

    people of color MUST rally and keep the rich egotistical maniacal Trumpeter OUT

    PS: on Kimberlin Brown… DANG doesn’t she look good

    Shay replied

    @Patrick….”What boggles the mind…is that women….do not see another woman as ….capable? (Or, rather, in my own estimation, worthy of being elected to the highest office in the land?) Speaking very much as a female, please allow me the privilege of offering my opposing view. The person in question is someone with whom I have absolutely nothing in common–not the least of which is ideological, although taste in fashion is a very close second—despite what one may assume is an identical XX chromosomal one, and yet, simply because I am of that fairer sex, it is implied–even expected—that I should applaud and support someone of the same gender, regardless of any or all other considerations???? That notion—often referred to as “identity politics”— is, at best, overly simplistic and, at worst, more than a bit condescending and totally anathema to my way of thinking. Believe me, I’m not taking specific issue with you, Patrick, I’m just explaining WHY this presumptuous tendency to assign people to certain groups based upon mostly demographical criteria and then demand they act accordingly ain’t always necessarily the way it is…for those amenable to this approach, and who willingly choose to participate along those lines, that is fine. But some of us have a different means of defining ourselves, and do not wish to be boxed in by such superficial constraints. I am an individual first, and I also look upon everyone else in that manner. I take each person—whether in life, business, politics, and yes, even here at MFSoaps—as I find them and base my opinion of them according to that, not because they match a list of supposedly preordained criteria. If I like someone who posts here, it may be because of their wit, personality or talent…there is something in them that garners my admiration and respect, maybe even fosters a feeling of kinship, and that will certainly not be due to the fact they are, first and foremost, male or female, or seem to initially fit other types of physical descriptions or traits, real or imagined…..I either respond favorably or not so favorably to them for their own unique qualities and the manner in which they present themselves…not as easy to divine online as in person, to be sure, but how many times have we said here we feel like we know each other just by our words and how they are expressed?…To further illustrate, I will offer a more politically germane example to you in the form of Dr. Ben Carson….on paper we could not be more dissimilar as to age, sex, race, profession, religious denomination, etc…..yet this is a man who gave the most marvelous speech at the GOP convention on a subject about which I am totally passionate: How political correctness is destroying our free speech rights. As I listened to the good doctor’s wise warnings regarding this vitally important issue, I felt as if he were speaking not just to me, but for me…..in terms of this topic, we were of the same heart and mind….all of our other obvious differences that the identity politics crowd would immediately recognize, emphasize and maybe even try to exploit, mattered none, since Dr. Carson had won me over in a way that would NEVER….EVER….be possible with the Dem’s current female standard bearer that (according to them) I’m supposed to gush over with unabated glee and support with unquestionable loyalty merely due to the biological fact we are both women???? Hmmmmm….me thinks not!!!! Having said that, Patrick, on one point we do absolutely agree: Kimberlin Brown does look good!!!!!!

    KateA replied

    Intelligent woman vote for who we think will take our country in the right direction. We do not vote for someone based on religion, gender, or race. There will be a day that our president will be female. The only plus for Hillary is that our White House will become a soap opera again with Bill on the loose around the young interns!

Donald is lucky to have you supporting him. I agree with everything you said and we are in big trouble if Hillary wins this election. If she wins I see more at racks on our Country and we will go further into debt. I am sorry to hear you are being attacked on social media. People are so mean and rude.

    Give me a break. Kimberlin Brown is as concerned about small business owners as Sheila was about Lauren’s hair extensions. When I think of “small business owners”, I think of the Mom and Pop stores in Astoria NY and in Granada Hills CA, where I grew up. These were people who not only gave people decent jobs but made you feel you were a part of something bigger. What I DON’T think of is some well-off, hate-filled B actress who fiddles around on an avocado farm and pretends she’s “just like you”. Do her workers get health care and/or retirement plan options? Just asking.

    why is an avacado farm not a small business?

    btw – if she is a B actress what does that make you?

    Soaphound replied

    Mgb, if you had read my post closely, I never said her business WASN’T a small one; I merely asked whether or not her employees received proper benefits. And the only businesses that “suffer” are those exceeding 250 workers and exceed a healthy income threshold. It’s the people that work for companies who AREN’T willing to treat employees fairly that suffer. Hopefully Ms. Brown is not among those. As for your “then what are you” remark, that sounded as if I’d heard it before. ..oh yeah, on the playground in the first grade.

    Harry replied

    Regardless of whether an avocado farm is a small business or not, KB is fooling herself if she actually thinks Trump is supportive of the small business owner.
    MGB, Trump is that mogul who drives Mom and Pop from their businesses.
    I don’t understand why folks think Trump is like them and an their side.
    He would be the worst thing for our economy and he has numerous bankruptcies to prove it. Moreover, he bilked poor folks trying to better themselves out of thousands upon thousands of dollars for his fraudulent Trump University. He is not Everyman. He’s not even on Everyman’s side.

    Trump’s economic policies help small businesses AND big businesses by freeing them of burdensome regulations written by bureaucrats with no experience in running a business and meeting a payroll,In what way does Trump’s business harm or destroy mom and pop businesses?He is a developer of hotels,golf courses,residential and other large projects which create good paying jobs and in no way drives others out of business.As to your claim that Trump bilked ‘poor folks” out of thousands you base this I assume on the news reports of the frivolous Trump U lawsuit that
    should have been dismissed by summary judgment long ago for lack of merit.Why are you and others turning this page which is devoted to soap operas into a repository for ignorant hateful political diatribes.Let this site be for soaps.Kimberlin Brown is an industrious and intelligent woman who is entitled to support the candidate of her choice,as are you.She addressed a major party convention and Michael Fairman let us-the soap fans- know that a former soap actress had that honor.Now let’s get back to using this site for soap chat and commentary and leave the nasty hateful comments to the sewer known as twitter.

    she made me hungry everytime she mentioned avocado . i’m a democrat yet i didn’t find her polarizing at all, i understand where she’s coming from. look we all want whats best for out country and base on our own personal agenda and self interest we select who we think fits that role, i don’t think its trump, she does, and i can respect her for that nonetheless, as for antonio sabato jr, he was coming from more of a place for hate, and that made me loose respect for him. we all don’t have to agree, this is america and what makes us great is that we can agree to disagree and may the best candidate (clinton) win. what i don’t respect is people who show their hand for hatred, racism, sexism, and ignorance.

    As someone who is fiscally conservative and socially liberal, I really don’t have a party to go to in the US. Lucky for me, I live elsewhere. If I was American though I would not be willing to restrict the rights and freedoms of others (even the ones I don’t necessarily agree with or understand) just to make more money. Kimberlin gave a nice speech, but nothing she said did anything to sway me from where I stand. Human rights and freedoms MUST prevail over economics.

    KB is no longer on a soap. I bet the poor girl hurt her chances as did AS for returning to any.
    She has a right to her say and I agree there is too much censoring of people you disagree with.
    I find it funny that people that are rightfullyl offended at the harsh rhetoric of one side, or the views of one side do not find any problem in behaving the same way they so criticize in others.
    When you are on a show and on twitter, I think it is best if you must state your politics and opinions on areas that are polarizing , you do it respectfully, To be honest if I were an EP of a show I would prefer my cast not to go there, but they do have the right I admit.
    I personally find some of the opinions expressed by NLG and now JL on GH offensive as they were insulting to one side.The result is for me to “create a safe space” and not watch these people. That is my free choice and my right also. But if a number feel as I do it would result in a ratings loss. NOt because of their poliitcal leanings which I respect all sides but they way they express them and the way they react to those that disagree.
    I really don’t watch GH anymore regularly but did llike JL and GF and the story. Now I just won’t. I also think that these soap stars are really getting a little “too big for their britches’ because in realilty they do no know anymore or have any greater value in their opinions than anyone esle. It is just as much one side’s country and another. I may be naive, but I feel that most of us want the best for the country but view the way to get it differently.
    as for KB if she was articulate and not mean, I support her and those that criticzied her for speaking are the ones with the problem.

    Kimberlin Brown was great last night and spoke from the heart. Your right beacon liberals on soap twitter . The best thing to do is what she did. What makes me laugh is they try to call Donald T. a bully while doing it themselves. Well I think we’ve heard the end of the speeches on here now unless someone else steps up. I hope we can get back to the soap talk.

    Sometimes actors are only palatable due to a good writer! When they are themselves one is left to realize how lacking they are in gray matter! And when the image is tarnished by stupidity one loses to desire to watch them perform again.

    I would no longer enjoy watching this woman in any capacity after seeing who she really is.

    If Donald Trump knows who Kimberlin Brown is I will personally give him a hell yeah but I seriously doubt it. As for her attacks on Hillary, it’s sad. She knows “victims” of Hillary. Boo Hoo, I know “victims” of Trump. So we’re even. I detest Trump supporters who seriously think that he has anything valid to offer anyone in this country other than “i am gonna win so big”…YAWN and thumbs down to you Kimberlin Brown for falling for the fake prophet.

    It is noted that Trump could not get anyone of value to speak for him lol
    He tried, but all said no ,,
    Most people have no idea who the people are speaking in support for him with the exception of a couple of governors and senators lol
    It was really a horrible convention showing of high grade people..

    It was being laughed over online, that he dragged in 2 soap opera actors and Scott Baio LOL … gotta luv this stuff ..
    It’s a long way to Nov, lots of crazy stuff on its’ way ..

    I could never support Trump– to do so would mean I believe in his blatant bigotry and fascist ideals.. (( Trump is not right in head, seriously)) lol ..

    I don’t know but I call the ex mayor of New York Rudy J. someone of value.

    Phoebe replied

    Rudy J is one of the most hated mayors of all time. He stepped up to the plate during 9/11 but before and after, he was an inept idiot with a terrible overbite.
    Moreover, he appears to be a racist–if you recall, he was part of that idiotic birther movement.
    Oh wait, so was Donald Trump. In fact, he was its founding father

    Phoebe:
    Rudy Giuliani was elected and re-elected in ultra-liberal New York City as a Republican.He was a tremendously successful mayor whose policies saved the city from decades of inept criminal coddling,high spending mayors and,along with his Police Commissioner Bill Bratton,turned the city from a dangerous crime ridden disaster to the safest big city in America.His accomplishments are legendary and your comments have no basis in fact.

    I think she was there more as a small business owner than a celebrity, Also quite honestly, I don’t care what a big name celebrity thinks and they will not influence my position just because I am a fan. Many of them do not seem very educated really in political affairs. What has disappointed me is seeing some of the reactions from fellow soap stars. I have no problem with polite debates on political opinions. Everyone is more than entitled to their opinion on how things should be done. But some of them have made unnecessary personal attacks and made her seem less than worthy. Maybe some of them need to pull out their mirrors.

    Loved Kimberlin Brown as Sheila Carter and respect her right to her opinions but regarding her comment about Hillary not standing up for women, she might want to look at her own party on that particular issue (Mr. Trump’s comments regarding Rosie O’Donnell, Megyn Kelly, and Elizabeth Warren; the party’s insistence on trying to legislate a woman’s right to choose and defunding Planned Parenthood).

    As I’ve said before, I personally can’t in good conscience vote for a candidate or party that tries to suppress voting, maintains a congressional majority through gerrymandering, tries to deny a woman’s right to choose, works to defund Planned Parenthood, wants to cut Social Security benefits, and/or actively works to deny the LGBT community their civil rights.

    What’s the difference between a Republican and a Democrat? All these weird names? And the tendency use “left”, “right”, “upper left of center down to right and corner and left again”, is so confusing.

    Why don’t we just call them politicians? And instead of trashing opponents in the race, why don’t they just present their platforms to their constituents instead? Can’t they all just be civil?

    And we all know all these people will be buddy-buddy friends again after the vote.

    @Harry….I totally agree with you in that I also despise political stereotyping, which is one of the very subjects I tried in my own way to address here, but even when someone like yourself is high-minded enough to try to avoid such pitfalls, it still can happen. To wit, I chuckle to this day over your description of “Mayor Lomax the Second” a few months back during the “Breastfeeding Brouhaha.” Forgive my paraphrasing, but I vividly recall you remarked that she certainly “looked” like a liberal….or something close to that effect! (And yes, you were unmistakably correct….I thought the same thing, but didn’t dare suggest it at the time!)

    This is a truly vile and repugnant woman… certainly far worse than any character she’s ever portrayed! The embarrassing Republicans can no longer corral any big name celebrities to campaign for them since the Party of Lincoln has surrendered any moral conscience it may have once had (admittedly not much there to begin with) to Trump aka Hitler 2.0! I cannot comprehend any sane person voicing support for such an immoral, racist, homophobic egomaniac! The entire Trump family is comprised of liars and hypocrites! I hope Brown, Biao and Sabato, Jr enjoy working at menial labor jobs because not even McDonald’s would hire them now! Although they’d have better luck with pious Chick Fil A, of course!

    Paula I happen to be Jewish and I can tell you Donald Trump is nothing like Hitler. If you had to live through what my grandparents lived through you might know what your talking about. TO MICHAEL FAIRMAN please remove these speeches from the comment site. It has brought out such hate & evil that some will not want to comment on our wonderful soap to some of these vile people. Most have gave their comment on who they would support and why and then there are others, who are just insulting because their candidate is not being supported. Michael can we please get back to our soap opera’s.?

    Phoebe replied

    Okay, Nikki, just so I understand your request clearly. You want the posts with which you disagree to be removed while Michale Fairman and his board monitors keeps the posts with which you do agree?
    Also, you rightfully maintain that this former soap actress has a right to voice her opinion and you cite the first amendment which is the freedom of speech to validate your assertion.
    However, when it comes to opinions you do not care for suddenly you are dismissing the first amendment despite the fact that you have been copiously asserting that very right on this very site.
    Seems to me, Nikki, that you’re very much like Mr Trump. In other words, you can dish it out but you cannot take it.

    Abruzzfan replied

    Nikki – I know that you disagree, but I am Catholic and have several highly educated Jewish friends who all think Trump is Hitler 2.0.

    I agree … can we please get back to discussing our soap operas.

    Because supporting the candidate who’s campaign is funded by countries that deny women equal rights and push gays off rooftops is such a better option? Get educated!

    So supporting a candidate and/or party who is actively working to repeal a woman’s right to choose and pass amendments to allow discrimination against gay citizens/repeal same sex marriage is the answer? A vote like that increases the chances that women and homosexuals in our country are discriminated against like they are in other parts of the world and doesn’t seem like a very good argument to me…

Get a life and realize that Trump will do more for this country than Billary. So many misinformed voters say that they are “scared” of Trump. You NEED to be scared of Hillary as she exposes classified info to the masses. And she claims that she did not know! Are you kidding me? She also panders to countries that want to kill Americans and she is so misinformed about the state of the economy. The vote is easy for me: TRUMP!
