Snoop Dogg Sparks Up At The White House

Ever since President Donald Trump stepped foot into the White House, celebrities expressed how they felt about the current president. Snoop is the one who had a problem with Trump being President and doesn’t mind letting it be known either.

On Tuesday while it was the midterm elections, Snoop Doggy Dogg decided to take himself and his “plants” to the White House. When he arrived, his plans were to smoke on the property of the White House to send a message to President Trump.

Of course, he documented the entire process as his Instagram is filled with videos of him doing his thing. At first, he wasn’t sure if he wanted to actually step foot onto the property but he asked his driver to park the car, making his way over to a few benches. Along the way, he took some photos with fans and even complimented an elderly man on his hair.

Ja Rule took to Instagram the other day to address, nobody but 50 Cent. Their beef goes back to almost 20 years.

“This will be my last post about @50cent and I wanna be serious for second and just say me and this man went back and forth yesterday like school kids…” Ja shared, captioning a throwback photo of 50 Cent and Donald Trump. “But not once did I see him use his platform of 20 million followers for ANYTHING uplifting I’m sure he didn’t vote didn’t encourage anyone to vote only Tom fucking foolery tearing down other ppl of color always talking shit with yo stink breath ass.”

Rihanna has become the latest artist not happy with President Trump for choosing their music during his campaign rallies.

Rihanna protested the President’s song choice after finding out he used “Please Don’t Stop the Music” during a rally in Tennessee.

“Neither me nor my people would ever be at or around those tragic rallies,” Ri-Ri said on Twitter.

Rihanna joins the likes of Steven Tyler, Axl Rose, and Pharrell who have voiced their displeasure with the president for his song choices at his rallies.

It appears that Kanye West and Donald Trump may be headed for a breakup.

Kanye seemed to distance himself from Trump and the so-called ‘Blexit’ in a series of tweets on Tuesday, which he capped off by saying “I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in”.

Kanye disavowed the ‘Blexit’, a movement hoping to see black voters abandon the Democratic Party.  He tweeted that the movement was the brainchild of black conservative Candace Owens and that he “never wanted any association with Blexit”.

Kanye never mentioned Trump by name but said he is “distancing himself from politics” and “focusing on being creative”.

It may be a good thing Kanye West has deleted his Instagram and Twitter accounts. The New York Post is reporting that the rapper is planning to meet with President Trump in the White House later this week.

The meeting, which is planned for Thursday, will also include Jared Kushner so they can all talk about Chicago and getting jobs for former convicts.

West has tweeted before about getting jobs in manufacturing for his hometown of Chicago, and this meeting will be his opportunity.

Kanye has received plenty of backlash in the past year for his support of the President. The latest being his publicized rant during his appearance on Saturday Night Live.

Kevin Hart hit the stage with Tiffany Haddish at the VMAs, and before he left he had some words for President Donald Trump.

“This game you’re allowed to kneel,” Hart said while onstage with Haddish. “You can do whatever you want there’s no old white men to stop you.”

Hart then went on to compare the VMAs to a typical day at the White House.

“Beefs pop off, bad language, people run to the bathroom and send out crazy tweets,” Hart explained. “In your face Trump, suck it.”

U.S. Launches Missiles At Syrian Base After Chemical Weapons Attack

The United States has launched a cruise missile attack on a Syrian airfield in response to the county’s recent chemical weapons attack that killed at least 100 people.

According to NBC News, two U.S. warships fired missiles intended for a single target — Shayrat Airfield in Homs province in western Syria— the airfield from which the United States believes the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad fired the banned weapons.

“Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children,” Trump said. “It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons,” said Trump, who called on other countries to end the bloodshed in Syria.

“There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the UN Security Council. Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically.”

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, tressed that Syria is to blame for the chemical weapons attacks.

“When the United Nations consistently fails in its duty to act collectively, there are times in the life of states that we are compelled to take our own action.

When Killer Mike speaks, people listen — even if they don’t always agree with his perspective.

During an interview with UK’s Channel 4, the rapper may have had added fuel to the controversy fire surrounding Kanye West‘s decision to meet with Donald Trump last year. Mike surprisingly revealed that he wasn’t bothered by the unlikely duo meeting up, saying, “Didn’t bother me. Why wouldn’t you? Black people shouldn’t have permanent friends or enemies. They should have permanent interests.”

The Atlanta emcee added, “If it wasn’t for Dr. Martin Luther King being willing to meet with people like [governor] George Wallace, George Wallace would have not have ended up—starting a racist bigot — he ended [as] a person who found God in some way. Appointed more Blacks to his office than any other governor since him. So, I maintain hope that all human beings can steer a changed course.”

Mike explained that a musician meeting with a president or presidential candidate doesn’t hold nearly as much weight as it would if they were someone like former NLFer/civil rights activist, Jim Brown. He said, “A musician meeting with a presidential candidate isn’t important to me like Jim Brown. Jim Brown, for the last 50 years, has fought against the oppression of all people. Him sitting with President Trump was a significant thing for me, because I know on the other side of the table he was telling the truth.”

Since Ye’s shocking meeting with Trump, he has deleted tweets that showed his in support of the President. Do you agree with Killer Mike?

Here’s How Colin Kaepernick Is Crapping All Over Trump’s Proposed Budget Plan For 2018

In the wake of Donald Trump‘s proposed budget plan for 2018, which would cut the federal funding for Meals on Wheels, Colin Kaepernick has donated $50,000 to the program.

The former quarterback, who’s had a problem finding a team after kneeling during the National Anthem, made headlines recently when he joined the campaign to get Somalia food and water and donated $50,000 to the social media campaign #LoveArmyForSomalia. Now he’s back with another great deed.

TIME reports: “Kaepernick and Trump have sparred often since the quarterback began kneeling before football games to protest police brutality and racial oppression. Trump again took a shot at Kaepernick on Monday night, telling a rally in Louisville, Kentucky, that the quarterback’s failure to get signed from a free agency was because NFL owners ‘don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump.’”

It doesn’t get more petty than Trump… but when he goes low, we go high.

When the king of the south takes to social media to comment on something, you know it’s serious.

T.I. is not here for Steve Harvey‘s plea to hip hop artists to respect President Donald Trump. After Steve went on his radio show earlier this week and warned rappers not to be so cruel by constantly criticizing the POTUS, Tip took to Instagram to comment on the host’s statements. He wrote, “We respect those who respect US. We respect those who respect themselves. Emergency msg to u my brother…#GETOUT.”

This isn’t the first time Steve Harvey has showed signs of being stuck in the sunken place. The Internet roasted the comedian after meeting with Donald Trump back in January. But despite the backlash, that hasn’t stopped Steve from protecting his POTUS.

Thoughts?

Girl Bye! Fox News Host Says Secret Service Should ‘Kill’ Snoop Dogg

Fox News continues to do the absolute most.

On Thursday, during a segment of the cable network’s show The Five, host Kimberly Guilfoyle suggested that the Secret Service should kill Snoop Dogg for his assassination parody video and Bow Wow for saying that he would pimp First Lady Melania Trump.

Fox News personality Greg Gutfeld noted that “it was an actual threat” and asked Guilfoyle how the Secret Service should respond to the “Lavender” music video.

Her response?: “Kill them? Kill them.”

She added: “I think it would be fantastic if Snoop and wannabe-Snoop got a visit from, like, the federal marshals and let’s see how tough and gangster they are then.

Interesting how these same pundits had no issue when folks like Ted Nugent were hurling racial epitaphs and death threats at former President Obama and his family for the past eight years.

But conservatives aren’t the only ones who have taken issue with this type of incivility toward Trump.

As we previously reported, talk show host and comedian Steve Harvey recently said on his radio show that Black people need to respect #45 more.

“I’m certain that Snoop doesn’t pose a real threat at all, but where we have to be smart about this young brothers and the people who are the truth tellers…where we have to be smart about is the way that they will bend it and twist it. And here’s the problem if we run into the route of if something happens then do you get brought in as the copycat version the reason that spurred action? ‘Cuz there’s some idiot that’s sitting at his house that’s willing to carry this out….And you don’t want to be tied to that.”

He added: “The problem with all this [criticism of Trump] is, is that there is an office in this country called the ‘president,’ and you have to respect the office,” Harvey said. “You really do. Whether you want to or not. You have to respect the office. They got laws.”

Angela Rye And Don Lemon Read Black Republican Paris Dennard For Filth On CNN

In a recent segment on CNN’s Tonight With Don Lemon, things got pretty heated when an all-Black panel, featuring our favorite homegirl Angela Rye, debated how Trump’s proposed 2018 budget will negatively impact African-Americans.

Don Lemon started off by insisting that during the campaign, Donald Trump told Black voters over and over again that they had “nothing to lose” in voting for him. However, looking at the massive cuts to departments and programs that African-Americans rely on show that we have a lot to lose.

Paris Dennard, a Trump supporter who played an integral role in the HBCU executive order, started by talking about how Trump didn’t make any cuts to HBCUs. However, Rye reminded Dennard that Trump promised to make HBCUs a priority, which wasn’t reflected in the new budget—this was just the status quo.

She also pointed out Dennard’s hypocrisy in praising Trump on this issue.

“[Trump] kept the same amount of money Paris that I have heard you complain about under President Obama, that is why my mouth dropped open. You are right on the numbers, but I just can’t believe that you are now defending the same numbers. Please at least hold your guy accountable on this. You are the champion for HBCUs,” she said.

Naturally, Dennard pivoted and made it about his disdain for the millions in cuts that former President Obama made to HBCUs when he was in office.

Rye’s response? “He gonna have me cuss on TV.”

Soon after, it was Lemon’s turn to get crunk with Dennard. Given the massive cuts in departments such as the Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Housing and Urban Development, Lemon pressed Dennard on why he was only willing to speak about HBCUs.

“So a lot of people say HBCUs are important,” Lemon declared.

“But there are a lot of people watching here tonight going, ‘HBCUs? I gotta eat, I gotta live somewhere. Great, yes, I would love to send my kid to a college, any college,’ and hopefully, maybe they want to send them to an HBCU, but why are you rambling on about HBCUs when we’re talking about urban development, about other education, about health and human services? There are more important issues than HBCUs.”

“Whoa, Don,” Dennard said, “I would caution you by saying, by saying to all those 300,000 students who attend HBCUs — “

But Lemon wasn’t here for having his words twisted.

“I said there are more important issues. Don’t put words in my mouth, did you hear what I said? I said there are more important issues.”

Lemon added: “Paris, look, my entire family went to HBCUs, don’t give me the lesson, I know what HBCUs, look at me, I know what they are, and I’m a product of an HBCU family. My point is there are more important things than HBCUs and you keep, you keep pointing to one of them, when I’ve gone down a list of things that are really important, and when I’m telling you that I’d rather eat than, or some people it’s the priority for them is to eat rather than where they’re going to go to college.”

Paris snapped back saying that Trump’s increase in border control will benefit African-Americans by providing them with more job opportunities.

“When you look at things like building the wall,” Dennard explained, “and enforcement and things that are going to directly impact jobs, there are monies going into DHS, which is going to lead to more jobs — ICE officers and immigration officers, which African-Americans can get those jobs. So you can make fun of HBCUs—”

Interrupting him, Lemon was very quick to point out that he never made fun of HBCUs.

“Paris wait, don’t say I made fun of HBCUs, that’s a flat-out lie,” Lemon protested, “That’s not, I didn’t make fun of HBCUs…That’s a lie.”

Another panelist Shermichael Singleton jumped in to bring everything back into perspective.

“OK, the president did not cut HBCUs, the funding remains the same as it did prior to the president being sworn in. OK, that’s fine, but I want to talk about more critical issues such as housing. For example, 85 percent of HUD’s budget, which oversees housing for a lot of poor people, who happen to be African-American, 85 percent is residual, so you decreased the budget by $6.3 billion and you will see a net loss of people who rely on housing vouchers,” he explained.

Singleton also stressed that Black folks on average are not concerned with a border wall—we have bigger fish to fry.

“Many African-Americans are not concerned about a border wall. I hate to say that, many are not. When there’s a large number of African-Americans who are living in communities where they’re now going to have to worry if they are currently relying on a housing voucher, is that housing voucher still going to be there. If you’re a single mother and you rely on WIC [Women, Infants and Children], will that program still be there?”

Toward the end of the panel everyone seemed drained by Dennard’s ridiculous. But thankfully for us, Rye got the last word.

“It’s incumbent on us to tell the truth about what’s in [the budget] and what’s in is a cut to the small businesses…Ben Carson tweeted today that small businesses are the backbone of this country. This a budget that cuts the minority business agency…there are cuts to WIC and SNAP program benefits. That is a fact.”

She brilliantly ends the segment quoting Outkast to point out how funds that could help African-Americans are being used to build a wall that we all have to pay for.

“He lied. It’s not Mexico; it’s me and you and your mama too.”

Can someone please give Angela her own show? Seriously.

You Mad?!: Fox News Pundit Says Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow Should Be “Killed” For Coming At President Trump

Bob Beckel Rejoins 'The Five'

The folks at Fox News are taking pretty serious shots at Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow over some comments they made towards the Donald Trump and company recently.

Last week, Snoop Dogg came under fire for his “Lavender” video where the gangster rap legend aims a toy gun at a clownish Trump look-a-like. Trump criticized the Doggfather on Twitter, citing his “failing career” and theorizing that there would be an uproar if the same threats were made towards President Obama. Bow Wow went off the deep end when he backed up his OG by taking shots at Melania Trump. “Ayo @realDonaldTrump shut your punk ass up talking shit about my uncle @SnoopDogg before we pimp your wife and make her work for us.”
In an episode of Fox News’ The Five, talking head Kimberly Guilfoyle, who at one time was being considered for the press secretary position in the Trump administration, boldly expressed how she’d handle Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow if it were up to her.

“Kill them?” Guilfoyle replied boldly. “Kill them.”

“I think it would be fantastic if Snoop and wannabe-Snoop got a visit from, like, the federal marshals, and let’s see how tough and gangster they are then,” she continued.

It’s interesting that Guilgoyle finds such distaste in Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow’s comments, but has no problem making death threats towards two Black celebrities live on national TV. Perhaps that why Snoop and Bow Wow fans are ripping into Guilgoyle via her Instagram comments. The onslaught of comments has become so overwhelming for the news pundit, she has temporarily disabled her comments. Bow Wow himself addressed Guilgoyle directly. “I just came for the comments,” he posted under one of her photos. “What I said was a tasteless joke. You were not joking. Kill us? Nah b-tch kill yourself.

Do you think Fox News owes Snoop and Bow Wow an apology? Sound off in the comments below.

#TheSunkenPlace: Steve Harvey Insists That Black People Should Respect Donald Trump

It’s clear that Steve Harvey didn’t learn his lesson the first time when it comes to Donald Trump, because he’s now insisting that Blacks folks should put some “respeck” on the president’s name.

During a recent segment on his radio show, Harvey stressed that while Snoop Dogg has every right to express himself as an artist, he has a serious problem with the rapper’s recent parody video assassinating a fake Trump.

“I’m certain that Snoop doesn’t pose a real threat at all, but where we have to be smart about this young brothers and the people who are the truth tellers…where we have to be smart about is the way that they will bend it and twist it. And here’s the problem if we run into the route of if something happens then do you get brought in as the copycat version the reason that spurred action? ‘Cuz there’s some idiot that’s sitting at his house that’s willing to carry this out….And you don’t want to be tied to that.”

Huh?

He then added:

“The problem with all this [criticism of Trump] is, is that there is an office in this country called the ‘president,’ and you have to respect the office,” Harvey said. “You really do. Whether you want to or not. You have to respect the office. They got laws.”


In addition, Harvey had words for Bow Wow, who recently sent a Tweet about pimping out Trump’s wife, Melania:

“Just be smart, let me tell ya man, leave the first lady out of this. Y’all going down another path with these cats now. You start messing with they wives… I’ll tell y’all you going down another path.”

Listen to it for yourself:

Funny how Harvey doesn’t make any mention of how difficult Trump makes it to actually respect him.

Trump is the same man, who without an ounce of proof, tweeted that former President Obama illegally wiretapped his phones during the campaign. The same man who treated a Black reporter like she was “the help” by asking her to schedule a meeting between his people and the Congressional Black Caucus. And still the same man whose Muslim ban coincidently doesn’t include any of the Muslim countries that his businesses are linked to.

And then there was that time when he thought that Frederick Douglass was still alive.

But let’s not forget the incompetent folks in #45’s administration who call African slaves immigrants; reference HBCUs as “pioneers” of school choice; swear that programs such as Meals on Wheels don’t really work; and say with a straight face that Obama could have spied on Trump through a microwave. Or the white supremacists he’s surrounding himself with and how their dangerous beliefs and policies are going to negatively impact people of color in this country.

But yes, let’s keep telling Black people to play nice with a president who says we all “live in hell.”

At the end of the day, I am clear: I will show Trump the same amount of respect that the Republicans showed Obama when he was in office.

Despite the high-profile meeting with Trump at the White House last month, HBCU leaders are not feeling the love now that #45’s proposed budget has been released. The promised extra money and investment for their schools were glaringly, but not surprisingly, missing.

According to The Washington Post, Trump’s first presidential budget calls for “maintaining” $492 million for HBCUs, which raised eyebrows given that the combined discretionary spending for these schools is actually $577 million right now. When asked about this fiscal discrepancy, the Education Department didn’t respond to the newspaper requests.

In addition, the WaPo also pointed out that there is no mention of any federal investment in scholarships, technology or campus infrastructure for historically black colleges that the leaders requested. And instead of expanding Pell grants for low-income students, the budget actually slashes $4 billion from that vital educational program.

Rep. Alma Adams (D-N.C.), a graduate from North Carolina A&T State University, believes that Trump’s promises don’t hold any water.

“Less than three weeks ago, this administration claimed it is a priority to advocate for HBCUs but, after viewing this budget proposal, those calls ring hollow,” she wrote in a statement.

United Negro College Fund President Michael L. Lomax echoes her sentiments.

“President Trump pledged to do more for HBCUs than any other president has done before. However, this budget is not reflective of that sentiment. Without strong federal investments, President Trump’s commitment to HBCUs and the rebuilding of African-American communities will be promises unfulfilled.”

But not everyone feels dismayed by the proposed budget.

Johnny Taylor, president of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund told The WaPo that given how drastic the cuts were to the Education Department, the cuts to HBCUs could have been worse. He said also pointed that like they did with the Obama administration, HBCU advocates will continue to push back and fight for funding.

“This is a process,” Taylor explains. “We’re already had phone calls with the administration to say that as we go into the specific lines of this budget, this is where we’d like you to consider increases. This is only stage one.”

For many, the news that Trump broke his promise to fund these schools better than any president before him, doesn’t come as a huge shock. There has been much skepticism around the meeting, including from those who were actually there. We previously reported that Morehouse College President John Wilson Jr. said that he was “disappointing” despite having “high hopes.”

“There was much advance chatter about [the executive order] being ‘historic,’and there were many signals from key Trump administration officials that they would surprise HBCUs with favorable treatment,” wrote Wilson.

“But, instead of the long-awaited executive order containing or signaling any of those outcomes, the key change is a symbolic shift of the White House HBCU Initiative from the Department of Education to the White House.”

Trust in Trump’s administration was also shaken when Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said that HBCUs were “pioneers” of school choice.

“They are living proof that when more options are provided to students, they are afforded greater access and great quality. Their success has shown that more options help students flourish,” she said.

Obviously, we all know that HBCUs were created because white universities would not admit African-American students.

Either way, there is time for Trump to redeem himself with HBCU leaders, but that’s going to take a lot including acknowledging how crucial these schools are to the community and that they deserve more money.

“You can’t just have a photo op for HBCUs and not create more funding for them,” Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers told the WaPo on Thursday.

“These schools have been under austerity for years, and if they’re going to compete with others, they need more funding.”
