Kanye West was spotted shopping at a Walmart in Wyoming with record executive Damon Dash, just hours after he shared a late night tweet that claimed he tried to divorce his wife Kim Kardashian in 2018.

Kanye West, 43, looked cool, calm, and collected when he went for a shopping trip at a Wyoming Walmart on the afternoon of July 22, less than 24 hours after he took to Twitter for a tweeting spree that included one tweet admitting he tried to divorce Kim Kardashian, 39, in the past. The rapper was joined by record executive Damon Dash, 49, for the outing and after strolling around the shopping establishment for essentials in white face masks, they both took the masks off while sitting and chatting on an outside bench. The two friends were dressed casually, with Kanye in a blue hoodie and jeans, and Damon in a white T-shirt and red shorts, and at one point, Kanye could be seen holding his phone, which had a green case.

The non-eventful public sighting comes as a bit of a surprise considering the fact that Kanye has been making many headlines for his bizarre and random tweets over the past few days. After the  “Jesus Walks” creator wrote that he was “trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek [Mill] at the Waldorf for ‘prison reform’” in 2018 on the night of July 21, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star came to his defense in her own social media statement just hours later.

“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder,” Kim wrote in a message she posted to her Instagram story. “Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.”

Kim went on to explain that family is “powerless” when it comes to “compulsive behavior” unless the person with the disorder is ” a minor” and pointed out that the “individual” going through it has “to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.” She added that she understands Kanye is under criticism because he’s a “public figure” and called him a “brilliant but complicated person” who has faced the “pressures of being an artist and a black man” and the “painful loss of his mother.” While concluding her lengthy, supportive message, she said her husband’s bipolar disorder does not “invalidate” his “dreams and creative ideas” and asked the media and public for “compassion and empathy” during this time.

Before Kim’s latest statement, Kanye opened up about his bipolar disorder during a tell-all interview on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman in May 2019. He told the host that it “could take you to a point to where you start acting erratic, as TMZ would put it.” He also spoke about the disorder during an Oct. 2018 visit with President Donald Trump, 74, in the White House’s Oval Office.

I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I was connected with a neuropsychologist that worked with athletes in the NBA and the NFL,” he said during the visit. “So, he said that I actually wasn’t bipolar, [but] I had sleep deprivation, which could cause dementia 10 to 20 years from now where I wouldn’t even remember my son’s name. So all this power that I got, and I’m taking my son to the Sox game and all that, I wouldn’t be able to remember his name, from a misdiagnosis.”

The Chicks’ music career was nearly derailed after lead singer Natalie Maines dissed then-President George W. Bush over the Iraq war. Now she says she’d kiss the former POTUS when comparing him to Donald Trump.

One of the best things to ever happen to George W. Bush‘s presidential legacy is Donald Trump‘s current presidency. The Dixie Chicksnow known as just The Chicks — lead singer Natalie Maines believes that the Bush administration’s lies over weapons of mass destruction in Iraq seems lesser in comparison to the volume of lies that Trump tells. Despite saying “We’re ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas,” in concert days before the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, Natalie now says she’d have a huge “love fest” with Bush today, because of where Trump has taken the country.

The Chicks appeared remotely on the July 21 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. The 52-year-old host read off a question from a viewer who wanted to know Texas-native Natalie’s “reaction to the backlash Ellen got last fall when she was sitting next to George W. Bush at a Cowboys game.” Daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, 62, posed with the 74-year-old conservative former president at a Cowboys game versus the Green Bay Packers on Oct. 6, 2019. She later responded to massive Twitter backlash by reminding everyone to be unconditionally kind to one another, regardless of political beliefs.

Andy asked “Did you follow that at all?” 45-year-old Natalie smiled and responded, “I did see that. You know I joke that today I might actually make out with George Bush.” Andy then inquired, “I was actually going to ask you that and I’m sure you’ve been asked before. But does the current president at least make you rethink at all your feelings for George W. Bush?”

Natalie replied, “Yes, I mean I don’t rethink that I didn’t want to go to war and that weapons of mass destruction were a lie,” she snarked. “But yes, it would be a huge love fest if I saw George Bush right now. Because of where we’re at with this current president.”

The Chicks’ career nearly imploded after the massive backlash following Natalie’s 2003 concert comment about then-President Bush. Fans turned against them as being unpatriotic, and many country radio stations stopped playing their songs. The aftermath was featured in the 2006 documentary Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing. The trio released a successful album in 2006, Taking the Long Way, but it would be seven years before they hit the road touring again in 2013. They finally released their studio follow up album Gaslighter on July 17, 2020, 14 years after Taking the Long Way.

Kanye West’s fans are wondering if his Twitter has been hacked. In a tweet storm, he seemingly accused Kim and Kris of trying to ‘lock [him] up’ and involve a doctor.

Fans were left wondering if Kanye West’s Twitter feed was taken over after a series of wild tweets appeared on Monday evening, July 20. HollywoodLife has not been able to confirm that these are really his tweets, and we have contacted Kanye’s and Kim Kardashian’s reps to verify his Twitter posts or find out if he has been hacked. The tweets appeared in rapid succession, one after the other. Some of the posts referring to his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, were also wiped from his feed.

Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday

— ye (@kanyewest) July 21, 2020

“Kriss don’t play with me you and that calmye are not allowed around my children. Ya’ll tried to lock me up,” Kanye wrote in a since-deleted tweet, and claimed in another Twitter post, “Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out [a horror film directed by Jordan Peele] because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday.” He also insisted for both Kim and Kris to “call me now” in another deleted tweet, and shared a screenshot of his unanswered text message to Kris that read, “This Ye…You ready to talk now…Or are still avoiding my calls.” This too has been deleted.

If I get locked up like Mandela Ya’ll will know why

— ye (@kanyewest) July 21, 2020

These tweets come a day after Kanye’s first ever presidential campaign rally, which took place in North Charleston, South Carolina on July 19, which he was referring to in the aforementioned tweet. Kanye sobbed in front of a packed crowd, revealing that he “almost killed” his now seven-year-old daughter, North West, through abortion after he and Kim learned they were expecting their very first child together.

“Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into this world, when I did not want to,” Kanye said in a video that has now gone viral. However, Kanye not only referred to this rally in his Twitter rant.

I put my life on my God that Norths mom would never photograph her doing playboy and that’s on God I’m at the ranch … come and get me

— ye (@kanyewest) July 21, 2020

He wrote more puzzling tweets about Kim, like, “I put my life on my God that Norths mom would never photograph her doing playboy and that’s on God I’m at the ranch … come and get me” [SEEN HERE]. Again, HollywoodLife also can not verify any of the claims Kanye has made, if he has indeed penned these tweets.

While Kanye didn’t dive into detail about the “doctor” he mentioned, the Grammy-winning rapper revealed in 2018 that he was diagnosed with with Bipolar Disorder when he was 39 years old. During his infamous meeting with Donald Trump later that year, Kanye claimed a doctor told him that he was actually suffering from sleep deprivation, not Bipolar Disorder. However, Kim upheld his Bipolar diagnosis in her May 2019 interview with Vogue: “For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is.” In addition to North, Kanye and Kim share three more children: Saint West, 4, Chicago West, 2, and Psalm West, 1.

‘Law & Order’ star Christopher Meloni is making the most of the summer — and showed off his day in the sunshine by posing for a shirtless snap.

Christopher Meloni may be pushing 60, but the Law & Order: SVU star has never looked better! He took to Instagram on July 17 to share a snap of himself truly making the most of the summer. The actor stood shirtless as he smiled for a selfie alongside his pal on a boat. “Me, my armpit, and my locations manager for L&O: OC #Lottabeefonboard #chillinbeforethegrillin,” he captioned the snap, which showed him holding onto the boat for balance.

The top of his red and white striped shorts were visible in the shot, as he donned some significant silver facial hair, and a grey cap worn backwards. Fans were quick to jump into the comments section of the photo, with many mentioning his armpit. “I would vote for your armpit if it were running in 2020,” one fan wrote of Chris’ prominently placed armpit, while another joked, “As far as I’m concerned, that’s America’s armpit.” Others simply dropped heart eye emojis or flames, while one fan wrote, “Sexy AF.”

The actor, who played the famed detective Eliot Stabler for over a decade, popped off when President Donald Trump tweeted his nonsensical “LAW & ORDER!” message for the umpteenth time back in June. In response to the president’s June 4 tweet, Chris shot back with “You would be arrested!” And he would certainly know. He spent 12 seasons nabbing New York City’s most especially heinous.

Chris joins his former SVU co-stars in chiding the president for besmirching the good Law & Order name. Mariska Hargitay, who has played beloved Captain Olivia Benson for 21 seasons (and was famously Stabler’s partner), called out Trump on June 2 for tweeting “LAW & ORDER!” on May 31. “You mean tyranny and racism!” Mariska, 56, tweeted. Afterward, she participated in Blackout Tuesday by tweeting a black square that said VOTE three times at the top.

Michael Cohen: 5 Facts About Trump’s Lawyer Heading Back To Prison For Violating Terms Of Early Release

President Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, is about to go to jail — again. The former fixer is returning to prison just two months after his release to home confinement. Here’s what you need to know.

UPDATE, 7/9/20, 4:42pm ET: Michael Cohen was taken into federal custody after violating the terms of his early release from prison, his lawyer confirmed to reporters. Cohen, 53, was released to home confinement on “furlough” in May due to coronavirus concerns, and was in federal court on July 7 to arrange the conditions of his home confinement.

He was taken from the courthouse in handcuffs after he “refused the conditions of his home confinement,” a Bureau of Prisons official said in a statement. “And as a result, has been returned to a BOP facility.” Cohen was told that he could have “no engagement of any kind with the media, including print, TV, film, books, or other form of media/news,” and that he couldn’t use social media,” to which he objected. 

Cohen has a book deal, and did not want to give it up, his lawyer said. He was taken to Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, the same federal facility currently holding Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s associate arrested for being an alleged co-conspirator in his crimes.

UPDATE, 5/21/20, 11:45am ET: President Donald Trump‘s former lawyer, Michael Cohen was released early from federal prison amid coronavirus concerns. Cohen, 53, was spotted heading into his New York City apartment building the morning of May 21, wearing a face mask, jeans, blazer, and baseball cap. He served just over a year of his three-year sentence behind bars at Otisville prison in upstate New York. Cohen was eligible for release from prison in November 2021.

ORIGINAL: 1. Michael Cohen was  sentenced to three years in federal prison on December 12, 2018. He pleaded guilty to tax evasion and lying to Congress about paying “hush money” to silence Stormy Daniels and Playboy playmate Karen McDougal about claims they had affairs with Donald Trump. “Each of these crimes is a serious offense against the United States,” the judge told him. “Mr. Cohen pled guilty to a veritable smorgasbord of fraudulent conduct.”

He is expected to start the sentence on March 6, 2019. Prior to the sentencing, Michael took “full responsibility” for the crimes, “for each act that I pled guilty to…the personal ones to me and those involving the President of the United States of America. My own weakness was blind loyalty to the man that caused me to choose the path of darkness. Time and time again, I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds.”

2. He admitted he paid off Daniels. When Daniels, 39, first shared her story about her alleged 2006 affair with Trump, Cohen immediately jumped to his client’s defense. Yes, Daniels was given $130,000 to stay quiet about the affair, but Cohen claims that it came out of his own pocket. It’s the timing of the payment that raises red flags. It wasn’t in 2006, when the alleged affair occurred, or in 2011 when Life & Style printed their story about the scandal. It was 11 days before the 2016 presidential election.

In a February 13 statement, Cohen said that, despite the payoff, he doesn’t actually think Daniels and Trump had an affair. “Just because something isn’t true doesn’t mean that it can’t cause you harm or damage,” he said.“I will always protect Mr. Trump.” The payoff could be a possible violation of federal campaign law.

Cohen’s personal lawyer, David Schwartz, maintained his innocence to CBS News.”Mr. Cohen paid the $130,000 but the reason is to protect business, protect reputation, and to protect family,” Schwartz said. Former former federal prosecutor Kim Wehle told the outlet, though, that “Mr. Cohen is getting himself into deeper legal problems that could make him more vulnerable in the Mueller investigation. I don’t think that necessarily benefits others that are potentially the topic of that investigation including the president of the United States himself.”

3. Daniels sued him for defamation. Daniels amended her lawsuit against Trump on March 26, 2018, claiming that Cohen defamed her when he suggested that she lied about her alleged affair with the now-president. The complaint argues that though Cohen didn’t directly accuse Daniels of lying about the alleged affair, he defamed her by implying it.

Daniels claims in the lawsuit filed by her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, that, “It was reasonably understood that Mr. Cohen meant to convey that Ms. Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels is a liar; someone who should not be trusted. Mr. Cohen made the statement knowing it was false, or had serious doubts about the truth of the statements.”

4. He has a history of alleged threats. Cohen has publicly threatened journalists. “I will make sure that you and I meet one day while we’re in the courthouse. And I will take you for every penny you still don’t have,” he said to a Daily Beast reporter who once called him for a story. “So I’m warning you, tread very f**king lightly, because what I’m going to do to you is going to be f**king disgusting. You understand me? You write a story that has Mr. Trump’s name in it, with the word ‘rape,’ and I’m going to mess your life up…for as long as you’re on this frickin’ planet

“You’re going to have judgments against you, so much money, you’ll never know how to get out from underneath it,” he added. He also retweeted threats to Megyn Kelly. After she grilled Trump on his treatment of women during that infamous 2015 GOP debate, he called Megyn a liar and retweeted people who said “Let’s gut her,” and called her a “snake” and a “psycho.”

5. He’s named in the Russian collusion investigation. The Daniels situation likely has nothing to do with Robert Mueller‘s investigation into Russian collusion in the Trump 2016 campaign — but other behavior gives pause. Mueller has requested documents and interviewed witnesses in incidents involving Cohen.

After facing backlash from stars and fans alike, Kanye West has Masika Kalysha in his corner! The ‘L&HH: Hollywood’ star tweeted she’ll ‘vote for Kanye period.’

Masika Kalysha, 35, knows who she plans to support in the 2020 presidential election — and it’s not Donald Trump, 73, or democratic nominee Joe Biden, 77. “I’m voting for Kanye period,” the Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood star tweeted hours after Kanye West, 44, announced he was planning to run on Saturday, July 4. “Kanye is way smarter than y’all think and [his wife Kim Kardashian] ain’t no dummie… pay attention,” she wrote to her 265,000 followers.

— Masika Kalysha (@masikakalysha) July 5, 2020

While some of her fans immediately pushed back, noting that Kanye has controversially supported Trump, Masika didn’t hold back on her theories about why. “What [if] pretending to be a trump supporter to get him & Kim in the White House was the plan?” she pondered. “I could be completely wrong… but y’all think the same man who said [former president George Bush] hates black ppl on live tv, who ran up on Taylor Swift to promote Beyoncé & grew up in Chicago could really,” she went on, referencing two of Kanye’s most unforgettable moments on live television.

Kanye shocked the world with his surprising 4th of July announcement. “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION,” the Yeezy designer tweeted to much confusion — including about how he could be running so late in the game. Fresh off their hangout, Tesla founder Elon Musk was one of the first to back him, writing “You have my full support!”

We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION

— ye (@kanyewest) July 5, 2020

The following day, Masika also expressed her confusion about what Kanye’s plans were. “Is Kanye actually running like for real????” she wrote on July 5, as fans speculated he would enter the race as an independent. “Cuz y’all getting bent outta shape cus I said I’m voting for him…. buuutttt I didn’t actually think he entered the race this late. this fa real?” she added, going on to clap back at fans who believe that Kanye running could “split votes,” and possibly make it easier for Trump to claim a victory against Biden.

Is Kanye actually running like for real???? Cuz y’all getting bent outta shape cus I said I’m voting for him…. buuutttt I didn’t actually think he entered the race this late. 🤔 this fa real?

— Masika Kalysha (@masikakalysha) July 5, 2020

“Do u understand that u asked me a question and then answered it yourself?” she tweeted back to a fan who accused her of not “understanding” that splitting votes would do. “Trump has no experience. I’d rather vote for my dog…I would vote for Bert and Ernie b4 I vote for trump. Siskel and Ebert. Ebert and Roeper. Big bird. Snufalufagus. North West. Elmo. Pinocchio. RobinHood. My daughter. The 6th person to rt this. The paw patrol. The PJ masks…” she also said.

1. She dated Anthony Scaramucci. Kimberly Guilfoyle dated former White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci, 56. The Long Island native’s wife Deidre Ball filed for divorce in July 2017, just days before she gave birth to their second child James, who is soon to be 3. By the beginning of August 2017, rumors surfaced that Anthony was secretly seeing Kimberly, although sources close to the political figure were quick to shoot down the reports at the time. The short-lived romance later fizzled.

2. She went to college in California. After growing up in San Francisco, Kimberly attended the University of California, Davis, where she impressively graduated magna cum laude. In 1994, she received her Juris Doctor from the Law School at University of San Francisco. Kimberly also spent time studying and doing research at Trinity College in Dublin. While in law school, she interned for the D.A’s office in San Francisco.

3. She has a law career. Kimberly briefly worked as a prosecutor in San Francisco, but was part of a mass firing by District Attorney Terence Hallinan in 1996. She went on to be come a Deputy District Attorney in Los Angeles, then went back to the San Francisco D.A’s office as an Assistant District Attorney from 2000-2004. She was also briefly a member of the La Raza Lawyers Association.

4. She worked in TV. Kimberly began a TV career in 2004, when she moved to New York to work for a show on Court TV and serve as an analyst on Anderson Cooper’s show. In 2006 she got a job as a host of Fox News’ weekend show The Lineup. Even after the show was canceled, Kimberly stayed on with the network, and was eventually named a host of The Five in 2011, where she’s appeared ever since. The show received a primetime slot in April 2017. Because of her contract with Fox News, where Kimberly has also made appearances on several other news shows, she turned down a job as the White House press secretary in May 2017.

5. She’s had other high profile relationships. Kimberly married Gavin Newsom, who became the mayor of San Francisco in 2001, and is now the current California Governor. She filed for divorce in Jan. 2005, and the split was finalized the following February. She remarried in May 2006, tying the knot with Eric Villency. Their son, Ronan, now 13, was born in October 2006. Kimberly and Eric ended their relationship in 2009, and have since divorced. Rumors began swirling that she was dating Donald Trump Jr., following his split from Vanessa Trump, 42, after they were seen at an event together in 2018 — and they’ve been happily dating since!

In Donald Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore on July 3, he announced that he was creating a ‘national garden’ full of ‘statues of American heroes’, but Twitter users weren’t impressed.

President Donald Trump, addressed the strength of America in his speech and revealed that he is creating a “national garden” that will feature statues of American “heroes”, which brought on a lot of Twitter reactions that poked fun at the project while others urged him to make it about the large impact of COVID-19.  “Won’t do anything about the Coronavirus, but will build a park of statues,” one Twitter user wrote while another joked that “The National Garden Of American Heroes” will feature “Kid Rock, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Ted Nugent.”

“How about a national garden dedicated to all the Americans lost to COVID-19? #ExecutiveOrder,” another tweet read while a third asked, “The national garden of American heroes? WTH is this trivial sh*t? How about focusing on a pandemic that has already killed >129,000 Americans.” Another user got sarcastic when they wrote, “Just what Americans need right now: a statue park.”

In addition to announcing the future park, Trump talked about the various important monuments throughout the country, including Mount Rushmore, and vowed that it will “never be desecrated” like some of the other monuments that have been vandalized in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement. “Mount Rushmore will stand forever as an eternal tribute to our fore fathers and to our freedom,” he told the cheering crowd before addressing the “angry” people who have tried to “tear down statues” and “cancel culture.”

“Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders … The American people are strong and proud, and they will not allow our country and all of its values, history, and culture to be taken from them,” he continued. “One of their political weapons is cancel culture… that is the very definition of totalitarianism. It has no place in the United States of America.”

Once Trump’s speech concluded, fireworks were set to explode over Mount Rushmore for the first time in a decade after they were banned during the Obama administration amid environmental concerns. Trump, who continuously pushed for a revival of the display, gave his speech with the looming presence of 60-foot-tall granite faces of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt looking down on him, and he made sure to mention each one of them during his time on the podium.

— Kassevy (@kassevy) July 4, 2020

He told stories about the background of each president on Mount Rushmore and how they contributed to the rich history of America, and he went on to mention various other Americans, both political and non-political, who have also made a big impact in the country.

Despite 91 people dying in South Dakota of COVID-19, the event was attended by over 7000 spectators without means of social distancing. Aside from the ongoing pandemic, there were also concerns of natural disaster caused by the fireworks display. The National Park Service determined that there were at least 27 wildfires started around Mount Rushmore during 1998 and 2009.

The service also noted that “July fire danger risk can be high to very high” in the Black Hills, which is currently experiencing a drought. Despite Trump’s protest that it was just “rock,” the monument is surrounded by the Ponderosa pine forest with ample vegetation on the ground. There’s an even more disturbing component to Trump’s tribute at play. The event, intended to commemorate American independence, took place on Lakota Sioux land without permission of the tribes that own it.

Native Americans have accused Trump and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem of breaking the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty, which recognizes Mount Rushmore and the land that surrounds it as part of “the Great Sioux Reservation, set aside for exclusive use by the Sioux people.” A 1980 Supreme Court ruling confirmed that the treaty is binding.

“We’re at a time in this country where there’s a reckoning and a realization that this country has to get right with its history,” Nick Tilsen, a citizen of the Oglala Lakota Nation and president of NDN Collective told NPR. “That’s why this is not just a historical injustice that has happened — it’s illuminating the current injustices that exist today in society.” Trump’s Independence Day event was greeted with protesters from the Lakota Nation as a result.

Donald Trump has called the NYC mayor’s plan to paint a Black Lives Matter mural on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue a “symbol of hate” that will “antagonize” police.

Donald Trump isn’t a fan of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio‘s plan to paint a Black Lives Matter tribute on Fifth Avenue. More specifically, right in front of his hotel. The President slammed the city’s plan to have the words painted on the prolific Manhattan street, calling it a “symbol of hate” in a July 1 tweet. “NYC is cutting Police $’s by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the @NYCMayor is going to paint a big, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury Avenue,” he began his Twitter rant. “This will further antagonize New York’s Finest, who LOVE New York & vividly remember the horrible BLM chant, ‘Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon’. Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. Spend this money fighting crime instead!”

The announcement comes amid New York City’s latest budget proposal, which includes massive cuts from the police department’s multi-billion dollar annual allotment. “We’re taking a billion dollars out of the NYPD. We’re reducing the size of the NYPD, we’re reducing overtime, we’re moving some of the functions NYPD does now — they will be replaced by civilians handling those functions who can do them better. And we’re going to take that money and put it into youth initiatives,” Mayor de Blasio told MSNBC.

As for painting the words “Black Lives Matter” on the street — much like the mural painted near the White House in Washington DC — the Mayor said he hoped to send a message to Trump. “It’s an important message to the whole nation, and obviously we want the president to hear it because he’s never shown respect for those three words. When he hears ‘Black Lives Matter,’ he presents a horrible, negative reality of something that doesn’t exist and he misses the underlying meaning that we’re saying we have to honor the role of African Americans in our history and in our society,” de Blasio said. “We have to make it come alive today so we’re going to make it really clear to the president, it’s going to be right outside his doorstep.”

It’s been quite a day for President Trump, who also suffered an embarrassing moment on Twitter when he seemingly forgot that former Fox News boss Roger Ailes had died. Trump took to Twitter with this question: “Where are you Roger Ailes?” Well, the ex CEO is in his grave, because he died in 2017. The POTUS inquired about his friend’s whereabouts after voicing his disapproval of Fox News hiring former Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile, who used to be a contributor at CNN.

Donald Trump wanted to know where Roger Ailes was, after calling out Fox News. People had to not-so-gently remind the POTUS of what happened to his friend and the CEO of the conservative news channel.

Donald Trump took to Twitter with this question on June 30: “Where are you Roger Ailes?” Well, the former Fox News CEO is in his grave, because he died in 2017. The POTUS inquired about his friend’s whereabouts after voicing his disapproval of Fox News hiring former Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile, who used to be a contributor at CNN.

She gets fired by @CNN for giving Crooked Hillary the debate questions, and gets hired by @FoxNews. Where are you Roger Ailes? https://t.co/XVwzt3Me5d

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 1, 2020

Donna, who was also Al Gore’s former presidential campaign manager, was let go from CNN in 2016 after Wikileaks revealed that she provided questions for CNN-sponsored primary debates to friends on Hilary Clinton’s campaign. So, conservative author Brigitte Gabriel started the conversation by tweeting, “Cheater Donna Brazile should not be on Fox News. GET HER OFF THE AIR!”

In response, Trump wrote this: “She gets fired by @CNN for giving Crooked Hillary the debate questions, and gets hired by @FoxNews. Where are you Roger Ailes?” People became concerned for Trump’s memory. “Can we talk about Donald Trump’s cognitive decline?? Rodger Ailes died 3 years ago,” one person tweeted, and another wrote, “Roger Ailes died three years ago. He was your friend. You really don’t know he’s dead? What planet are you even on, man?”

Roger Ailes died three years ago. He was your friend. You really don’t know he’s dead? What planet are you even on, man?

— Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) July 1, 2020

Trump clapped back in another tweet — he was talking figuratively, apparently. “I know better than anyone that my friend Roger Ailes died 3 years ago, just look at what happened to @FoxNews. We all miss Roger!!!,” Trump wrote. Roger had lent his advice to Trump ahead of the presidential debates in 2016. After 20 years with Fox News, Roger resigned from his head position with the conservative news network in 2016 after multiple employees (both current and former) came forward with accusations of sexual assault. He died the following year after falling and hitting his head.

I know better than anyone that my friend Roger Ailes died 3 years ago, just look at what happened to @FoxNews. We all miss Roger!!!

Earlier that day, Trump also got Twitter talking after it was revealed that Queen Elizabeth II chatted with him over the phone ahead of the U.S.’s Independence Day. Fans sent their sympathies, since the queen was forced to talk with the president of the U.S., which is one of Britain’s biggest allies.

Laverne Cox Drags Trump Administration For Its ‘Obsession With Discriminating Against Trans People’

Laverne Cox opened up about trans visibility in the last 6 years, admitting that voices have been amplified, but ‘conditions’ of poor, working trans people ‘have not changed.’

Laverne Cox, 48, is blasting Donald Trump‘s administration for continuing to discriminate against the trans community. “There have been so many legislative attacks on trans folks and state legislatures all over the country,” Laverne said in an interview with Time Magazine for their annual Time 100 list. “And of course this administration has had this obsession with discriminating against trans people on a federal level…perhaps, we became even more targeted as marriage equality became the law of the land,” she added, referencing the current government and the Supreme Court’s historic 2015 ruling during Barack Obama‘s presidency.

The Orange Is The New Black star went on to reflect on the “tipping point” for the trans community, including her own Time magazine cover from 2014 — making her the first openly trans person to ever make the front of the publication. “I believe that I was the first openly trans person to be on the cover of Time Magazine and the first openly trans person to be on the cover of a lot of magazines and do a lot of things,” she said. “Theories [of] whether that point was about just about elevating me or elevating the entire community. Was that tipping point in a space of just representation and not in the real experiences lived by trans people?” she pondered.

“I think it may be that last one,” noting that shows including Transparent, OITNB and Sense 8 helped propel conversation. “We had an unprecedented level of visibility but the real lived experiences of a lot of trans folks and our day to day lives were not necessarily changed,” the Daytime Emmy Winner — who explored the topic in her Netflix documentary Disclosure — explained. “The tipping point has been with visibility and with our voices being amplified but I would argue that the material conditions particularly of poor working trans people have not significantly changed in the 6 years,” she also said.

Many stars — including Laverne — have been vocal on social media in recent weeks about protecting the rights of LGBTQ workers against discrimination. The Supreme Court ruled in favor on June 15, which Laverne applauded. “It’s a really beautiful thing that in the United States of America, we can affirm once more that it should be illegal to fire someone from their job simply for being who they are,” she said on The View the following day.

Hollywood Life spoke EXCLUSIVELY with transgender rights activist Nicole Maines who raved over the latest Superior Court ruling protecting LGBTQ employees.

Nicole Maines, 22, is known by many fans as ‘Dreamer’, on The CW’s Supergirl. But the 22-year-old 2020 GLAAD Award nominee is also an avid transgender rights activist who has achieved much more than the coveted title of TV’s first transgender superhero. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Nicole to get her reaction to the Superior Court ruling on June 15 which protects LGBTQ employees from being discriminated against on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. “I mean, finally some good news,” Nicole exclaimed.

“And it’s so good to have the majority of the Supreme Court rule the vote,” she noted of the landmark ruling which was decided by a vote of 6-3. “It makes me feel that not all hope is lost. Despite everything going on, we are making progress, making huge progress!” The court ruled that the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which makes it illegal for employers to discriminate because of a person’s sex, among other factors, also covers an individual’s sexual orientation and transgender status.

Nicole Maines celebrated at the Los Angeles Pride Parade in 2019.

“For the Supreme Court of the United States to rule that you cannot discriminate against an LGBTQ person in the workforce, for being LGBTQ is so massive,” Nicole continued. “I’m hoping moving forward, that will set where the bar is for other forms of discrimination. Because of course, that came in the same week that Donald Trump took away protections for Trans people in health care. So, I’m hoping that moving forward legal systems will recognize that since you can’t discriminate against them in the workforce, then why should you be able to discriminate against them when it comes to health care? So, I’m hoping that sets the bar a little bit higher.”

Of course, Nicole realized the historic decision came just days after the Trump administration finalized a regulation that will erase protections for transgender patients against discrimination by doctors, hospitals and health insurance companies. “It’s just an emotional rollercoaster for folks lately,” she said. “I am hoping that [the latest Supreme Court ruling] minimizes the effectiveness of his decision. I mean, the fact that we have to have this conversation and the fact that we have to say, ‘No, you should not deny a person health care, because they’re trans.’ That seems crazy to me. How does a person go into medicine and decide I’m only going to treat this person and I’m not going to treat another?”

George Clooney threw some major shade at Donald Trump after the president tried take credit for making the Juneteenth holiday ‘famous.’ The actor then made a massive donation to a racial justice initiative.

George Clooney still knows how to get in a fierce zinger. The 59-year-old actor took President Donald Trump to task after he claimed that he “did something good” by making Juneteenth “very famous.” June 19 is the date that recognizes the emancipation of the last remaining slaves in the United States in 1865. George used Trump’s wild boast to throw shade at him for now being associated with the holiday for all of the wrong reasons.

“Thank you President Trump for ‘making Juneteenth famous.’ Much like when Bull Connor made ‘Civil Rights’ famous. My family will be donating 500 thousand dollars to the Equal Justice Initiative in honor of your heroic efforts,” George announced in a statement to PEOPLE magazine on June 19. Bill was an Alabama politician in the mid 1960s who was vehemently opposed to civil rights for Black Americans. As Birmingham’s Commissioner of Public Safety, he ordered police attack dogs and hoses deployed on those peacefully marching for civil rights. So Clooney’s statement was a major diss to Trump.

Trump being associated with Juneteeth stemmed from his campaign scheduling a rally in Tulsa, OK, on June 19, 2020. In 1921, the city was the scene of one of America’s darkest moments of racial carnage and destruction. A White mob burned down the majority of the city’s thriving Black Greenwood area, leaving at least 39 people dead, another 800 injured and nearly all of the neighborhood’s Black owned businesses in ashes. So Tulsa would have been an extremely insensitive place for Trump hold a rally for his predominantly White, conservative followers on Juneteenth.

By Trump initially scheduling a large scale campaign stop in Tulsa on Juneteenth, he infuriated Black leaders.  Especially since he has been railing against those protesting throughout the month June on behalf of Black Lives Matter, which included the gassing of peaceful protesters outside of the White House. “This isn’t just a wink to white supremacists – he’s throwing them a welcome home party,” California Senator Kamala Harris tweeted after Trump announced the Juneteenth Tulsa appearance. The president’s campaign later moved the date to June 20 after mounting pressure.

After the dust-up, Trump bragged to the Wall Street Journal‘s Michael C. Bender in an interview conducted on June 16 that, “I did something good. I made it famous. I made Juneteenth very famous. It’s actually an important event, it’s an important time. But nobody had heard of it. Very few people have heard of it. Actually, a young African-American Secret Service agent knew what it was. I had political people who had no idea.”

An assistant then reminded Trump that the White House put out a statement last year recognizing the importance of Juneteenth. The president also explained that he moved the rally date to the 20th, “out of respect because I had two African-American friends and supporters. And most people, and I went to a lot of people, they had not heard the term Juneteenth.”

Amy Klobuchar won’t be in the running for Vice President. The Minnesota senator withdrew herself from the list of potential VPs, urging Joe Biden to ‘seize the moment’ amidst the BLM movement.

Amy Klobuchar, 60, is no longer vying for the Vice President ticket under Democratic nominee Joe Biden, 77. The Minnesota senator shocked America when she withdrew herself from the list of potential candidates on Thursday, June 18, and urged Joe to choose a “woman of color” as his running mate. “There are so many incredible, qualified women…this is a historic moment. America must seize on the moment and I truly believe — as I actually told the VP last night when I called him — that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket,” she said to MSNBC‘s Lawrence O’Donnell.

“If you wanna heal this nation right now, my party yes, but our nation — this is sure a hell of a way to do it,” she added, referencing the Black Lives Matter movement, which has sparked protests across the country and around the world following the death of 46-year-old George Floyd on May 25. Amy, who is a Minnesota native and previously served as Hennepin County’s prosecutor — where George was killed — had previously decided not to remove herself from the potential candidate list after the death. “That’s just what I think after being through this in my state,” Amy added, emotional.

Amy — from the moment you announced you were running for president in a snowstorm, it wasn't hard to see you had the grit and determination to do anything you set your mind to. You know how to get things done. With your help, we’re going to beat Donald Trump. https://t.co/4kquPZtSV9

— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) June 19, 2020

Shortly after Floyd’s death, it was brought to light that Amy had previously failed to charge now-fired officer Derek Chauvin for another fatal shooting incident. Throughout her seven years as the Hennepin County prosecutor, Amy faced criticism for not doing enough to examine and stop racism amongst the Minneapolis Police Department. Despite her past history, she doesn’t think that it would have affected her job as Vice President, should she have been elected. “I think I could’ve functioned fine and there’s a lot of untruths out there about my record and now is not the time to debate those,” she also said to MSNBC.

Joe has since reacted to the news, tweeting “Amy — from the moment you announced you were running for president in a snowstorm, it wasn’t hard to see you had the grit and determination to do anything you set your mind to. You know how to get things done. With your help, we’re going to beat Donald Trump.” Twitter applauded Amy’s decision and comments, and she quickly began trending on the social media platform. “I respect that Amy Klobuchar dropped out of the running for Vice President and said Joe Biden should choose a woman of color instead. I wholeheartedly agree with her decision,” user @clairermassey said.

The era of change begins now ! Let’s start the campaign for her. Please announce @JoeBiden,” while @ShanRussell72 shared, “My respect for @amyklobuchar just increased dramatically. She just withdrew from consideration for VP, saying a woman of color should be chosen. She’s going to work to heal her state, legislation and uniting the nation. Thank you ma’am for your service and integrity.”

Donald Trump Denies Having ‘Parkinson’s’ After Careful Walk Down Ramp Provokes Health Questions

Donald Trump Denies Having ‘Parkinson’s’ After Careful Walk Down Ramp Provokes Health Questions

After a very slow walk down a ramp at West Point, Donald Trump is revealing in a new interview that he ‘doesn’t think’ he has Parkinson’s disease.

Donald Trump is aghast at how his health was called into question following his trip to the United States Military Academy at West Point on June 13. He needed two hands to hold a glass of water up to his mouth while giving the commencement speech and appeared to shake. Then he walked very slowly down ramp in such a manner that #TrumpIsNotWell began trending on Twitter. The president actually responded to the debate about his pace that same evening, with a detailed explanation tweet blaming the “slippery” ramp. In a new interview, Trump, 74, says he “doesn’t think” he has Parkinson’s disease, as some have questioned. Parkinson’s is a progressive central nervous system disorder that causes body tremors.

“I went to West Point over the weekend, made a very good speech, according to everybody. They said the speech was one of the best. The kids thought it was one of the best they’d ever heard. Stood up there for a long time saluting,” Trump told the Wall Street Journal ‘s Michael C. Bender in a June 16 interview. He then went on to explain his walk from the podium, where Trump claimed, “‘And does he have Parkinson’s? I don’t think so.”

The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was very long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery. The last thing I was going to do is “fall” for the Fake News to have fun with. Final ten feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2020

“After the helicopters came over, the hats went up, the general said, ‘Sir, Are you ready?’ I said, ‘I’m ready.’ And he led me to a ramp that was long and steep and slippery. And I said, I got a problem because I wear, you know, the leather bottom shoes. I can show them to you if you like. Same pair,” Trump explained, offering to show Bender the bottom of his shoes. “And you know what I mean, they’re slippery. I said, ‘General, I got a problem here. That ramp is slippery.’”

Yet again, this guy has an amazing ability to draw attention to the things that embarrass him the most.

“So I’m going to go real easy. So I did. And then the last 10 feet I ran down. They always stop it just before I ran, they always stop it,” he continued, seeming to complain about how the video was played during media reports. “So, I spent three hours between speeches and saluting people and they end up, all they talked about is ramp. If you would have seen this ramp, it was like an ice skating rink. Here I spent three hours on stage, the sun pouring in and I saluted 1,106 cadets, and that’s not easy. I stayed there for hours. And what do I do? I get publicity about walking down a ramp. And ‘does he have Parkinson’s?’ I don’t think so,” Trump explained.

The reporter then noted how Trump’s campaign has gone after his opponent, 77-year-old Joe Biden‘s health, and that it might be one of the reasons why the president himself was also scrutinized. “Well, I’m four years younger. But no, it’s not Biden’s age,” Trump said about his critiques, which include calling Biden “Sleepy Joe.” “I know people that are much older than me. And they’re sharp as they were when they were 25. I know a man who’s 92, is 100 percent sharp. Take a look at  (86-year-old Republican donor) Sheldon Adelson. So sharp. It’s not the age,” when talking about Biden’s mental acuity. In addition to Biden, Trump went after his 2016 presidential opponent Hillary Clinton‘s health during their race against each other. So he can’t be surprised when the tables are turned on him.

In a resurfaced interview from 1991, Cher was ruthless while speaking about her longtime foe, Madonna. Cher, who jokingly referred to the singer as her ‘best friend,’ said Madonna’s ‘not beautiful’ and ‘not unbelievably talented.’

Has anything really changed? Cher went off about her disdain for Madonna in a newly resurfaced interview from 1991. Cher was a guest on the British talk show, Wogan, when host Terry Wogan purposely mentioned Madonna — admittedly knowing of the singers’ not-so-friendly relationship.

“Do you go jogging like Madonna to keep fit?” he asked, to which Cher joked, “Well, you mean like my best friend, Madonna?” Meanwhile, the  audience could be heard roaring with laughter. “I thought that was a subtle way to drag her in, you understand,” Wogan admitted.

Cher continued to joke about the singer, adding, “How about dragging her in by her hair?” That prompted Wogan to ask, “You’re not that keen on Madonna?”

 

“Well, you know what, it’s really gotten to be so blown out of proportion,” Cher began, before she recalled an encounter with a fan. “When I was in America, I mean it’s not like you go around saying ‘this is how I feel,’ but someone said to me, ‘What do you think about her?’ I said, ‘She’s unbelievably creative. I mean, I’m amazed at the amount — because in my day, I was pretty good at doing the same thing that she’s doing, but she does it so much better. But, she’s unbelievably creative because she’s not unbelievably talented, she’s not beautiful, but she’s kind of, she’s rude. And so, the man said, ‘How do you feel about her?’ I said, ‘Well, she’s nice, she’s creative, but she’s rude. Then, I used another word and they bleeped me. I don’t really have anything against her. I do respect that she goes much farther than anyone should go, and I think that’s interesting about her that she’s willing to do whatever she wants to do.”

Cher and Madonna’s longtime feud stretches all the way back to the late ’80s — though, it could be before then Through the years, Cher has maintained her stance that she believes Madonna is a “mean” person.

“There’s something about her that I don’t like. She’s … mean. I don’t like that,” Cher once said during a candid CBS interview in 1991. “I remember having her over to my house a couple of times, because [Sean Penn] and I were friends, and she just was so rude to everybody. It seems to me that she’s got so much that she doesn’t have to act that way,” Cher recalled.

“She acts like a spoiled brat all the time. And it seems to me when you reach the kind of acclaim that she’s reached — and you can do whatever you want to do — you should be a little bit more magnanimous, and a little bit less of a c—t,” she said.

In more recent years, Cher has been consistent about her opinion of Madonna. She reminded the world she’s not a fan of the singer while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September of 2018.

Cher and Madonna notably joined forces at the 2017 Women’s March in Washington, D.C., where they both gave speeches against President Donald Trump. However, don’t expect to hear a collaboration between the singers anytime soon.

Barack Obama reacted with joy to the Supreme Court’s ban of discrimination towards transgender and gay workers. Meanwhile, Donald Trump has been silent.

Barack Obama, 58, wished America a Happy Pride Month with a throwback photo of his former home, The White House, lit up in the LGBTQ flag’s rainbow colors on June 15. Just hours earlier, the Supreme Court ruled that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal for employers to discriminate American workers based on their sexual orientation and gender identity — thus protecting gay and transgender people. It was a historical move, especially considering that two Conservative justices supported the 6-3 ruling. Of course, Obama had to react to this milestone!

“Today reminds us that progress might be slow. It might take decades. But no matter what things might look like today, it’s always possible. Happy Pride month, everybody,” Obama wrote on Twitter, alongside the photo of the rainbow-colored White House. The photo was taken amid Obama’s presidential term in 2015, on the same day that the SCOTUS made another ruling that the LGTBQ community celebrated: the legality of same-sex marriages nationwide.

Donald Trump has remained noticeably mum on this most recent victory for LGTBQ people — a silence that was reflected outside his home on Monday, which remained white. So, fans have instead thanked who they acknowledge as their real “president”: Obama! “Thank you, President Obama. LGBTQ people like me have hope because of the way you paved,” one person tweeted in response to the former POTUS’ Pride post, and RuPaul’s Drag Race star Shangela Laquifa Wadley wrote, “Come baaaaaack. We love and miss you Mr. President.”

A third person compared side-by-side photos of Obama’s colorful White House, versus the White House going dark amid the Black Lives Matter protests on May 31. “When love is in The White House vs when hate is. Thank President Obama for lighting the way. We miss you,” the citizen tweeted.

Obama hasn’t been the only big name to react to the Supreme Court’s ruling on Monday. Stars like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift shared their overjoyed thoughts on Twitter! It was a much-needed day of celebration across social media, since just three days prior, people were devastated to learn that the Trump administration finalized a ruling that based sex discrimination on “the plain meaning of the word ‘sex’ as male or female and as determined by biology” in health care, according to The Department of Health and Human Services’s statement from June 12. This stripped gay and transgender patients of protections that an Obama-era rule previously granted, thanks to its inclusion of gender identity discrimination in Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act.

This isn’t the first time Americans have chosen to honor Obama instead of the current commander-in-chief! Instead of sending birthday wishes to Trump when he turned 74 years old on June 14, many people instead filled Twitter with posts about Obama’s time in office. This day was no different.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he supports any franchise that will hire quarterback Colin Kaepernick, after he’s gone three seasons unsigned following his ‘taking a knee’ racial injustice protests.

Even though no NFL team has gone near signing quarterback Colin Kaepernick after 2016’s season, the league’s commissioner is encouraging a franchise to take a chance on the 32-year-old. Roger Goodell, 61, told Mike Greenberg for ESPN‘s The Return of Sports special that, “Well, listen, if he wants to resume his career in the NFL, then obviously it’s gonna take a team to make that decision. But I welcome that, support a club making that decision and encourage them to do that.”

Even if Colin isn’t signed, Goodell says he has a place in the NFL to help guide the league through racial justice issues. “If his efforts are not on the field but continuing to work in this space, we welcome him to that table and to help us, guide us, help us make better decisions about the kinds of things that need to be done in the communities,” the commissioner continued.

“We have invited him in before, and we want to make sure that everybody’s welcome at that table and trying to help us deal with some very complex, difficult issues that have been around for a long time. But I hope we’re at a point now where everybody’s committed to making long-term, sustainable change,” Goodell added.

Kaep hasn’t taken a snap in the league since the end of the 2016 season, after he parted ways with San Francisco 49ers and became a free agent. He famously began the “taking a knee” protests during the National Anthem to bring attention to police brutality and racial injustice. But ultimately, many owners thought his actions were too much of a distraction to sign him. President Donald Trump even called out taking a knee as being disrespectful to the American flag and our troops, though Colin always made it clear he was protesting the killings of several unarmed black men by police officers.

We, the NFL, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of Black People. We, the NFL, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the NFL, believe Black Lives Matter. #InspireChange pic.twitter.com/ENWQP8A0sv

— NFL (@NFL) June 5, 2020

Goodell finally admitted the league was on the wrong side of history when it came to how it reacted to Colin and other Black players taking a knee in peaceful protest. In a June 5 video amid Black Lives Matter rallies sweeping the nation following the horrifying police custody death of George Floyd, Goodell released a Twitter video and statement. He said the NFL should have listened to its players when they repeatedly said the kneeling protests had nothing to do with the American flag and everything to do with racial injustice.

“We, the NFL, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of Black People. We, the NFL, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the NFL, believe Black Lives Matter,” Goodell said with a somber face. The one thing he didn’t say though was “We’re sorry” to Colin for the way he had been treated. Kaep ended up suing the NFL, claiming collusion among owners to blackball him from the league. He and the owners settled the case with a 2019 confidential agreement.

Jimmy Kimmel managed to match up priceless video of a toddler openly lying to her mom with Donald Trump’s face. The result is both hilarious and frightening, as ‘Toddler Trump’ lies about his own coronavirus statements.

Jimmy Kimmel has once again skewered Donald Trump to perfection. He and his editing team played “Dr. Fakenstein” and put the president’s face over that of a lying toddler. The ABC late night talk show host used viral video of the cute little girl openly lying to her mom about touching her pet’s dog food to highlight the president’s claims that he never said things about the coronavirus that he so clearly did…on video nonetheless! “Watching that kid deny doing something she clearly did reminded me of someone. So this time I want to say, I want to announce in advance, that we did doctor this video. And here now is our boss baby, deepfake,” he announced during the May 12 segment on his show.

Jimmy’s production team seamlessly put Trump’s face across the tie-dye shirt and peach short wearing blonde toddler. Instead of the little girl’s mom asking her why she keeps lying about touching her pet’s food, the show had a woman speaking in a reporter’s voice asking toddler Trump questions about his previous coronavirus statements that he later denied.

“Mr. President, you said the virus was just like the flu,” the woman is heard asking, and Kimmel’s team kept the little girl’s garbled speech in place for answers. She/Trump responds back “No I did not mess with the food,” which manages to sound so much like “flu.” The woman’s voice asks, “You also said the virus could go away by April,” to which the petulant toddler/Trump defiantly says “No I didn’t!” “No sir, you said it would disappear like a miracle,” the woman continues, as the toddler/Trump responds back with a “no” and some childish gibberish as the little girl is in the midst of learning how to speak. Trump really did say on Feb. 28, “It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle, it will disappear” about the coronavirus.

“Yes, you said only 15 people have it and it would go down close to zero,” she asked the cranky todder/Trump, as the president did say that on Feb. 26. Again the response was the child shouting some nonsense with the word “no” clearly heard. The woman’s voice repeated more claims that Trump has made, saying “Yes, you said cloroquine would treat it,” and “No, you said we should try using disinfectant.” The latter Trump was forced to cop to after news conference video of him saying injecting disinfectant into human bodies was something doctors should look into went viral. Instead he later claimed he was being “sarcastic,” when he clearly wasn’t.

Kimmel’s team had the woman repeat more inconvenient Trump truths, including “You said anyone who needs a test can get one,” “You praised China for being transparent,” “You got rid of the pandemic response team, “You ignored every warning throughout January and February,” to all of which the toddler with Trump’s face gave cranky lies saying “No!” In the end, Jimmy said of todder/Trump, “Now go to your room and no Fox News for you. ” The video is hilarious, but at the same time pretty frightening considering all of the statements brought up were things Trump did say, then later claimed he didn’t.

Saving big trade deal with India for later: Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump has said he is “saving the big deal” with India for later and he “does not know” if it will be done before the presidential election in November, clearly indicating that a major bilateral trade deal during his visit to Delhi next week might not be on the cards. Trump is scheduled to visit India on February 24 and 25.

Mogli The Iceburg – Tumultu Lyrics

[Intro: nobigdyl.]
Tribe on the move

[Verse 1: Mogli]
2017 and the earth is filled with violence
Turmoil creepin in the mindstate
The media been tryin to start a race war
While the rich still unaffected by the crime rate
Irate citizens are in the street demanding change
But none of us agree on what to change to
Im sittin here just plottin on a move while the fam
Steady prayin that this industry don’t change you
And I ain’t finna compromise nothin
People said I’m switchin sides but yall frontin
Homie you don’t really know my heart
This my work and I’ma do this thing with all my might
Boy thats on my life
You don’t like the things I’m sayin in my music
You don’t have to listen when I’m speakin on it
If I’m promising you one thing that you can expect from me
I guarantee you I’mma always keep it honest
Yeah, Indie tribe you know we’ve been up on it yeah
Chewin up every single opponent, yeah
But who’s my competition but my brothers
Jealousy has gotten into me comparing me to another
When I see their accomplishments and accolades
I get jaded but I keep it hidden from my face
Cause I don’t want the world to see me as I really am
A self-righteous hypocrite thats always throwin shade, yeah
On January first of every year I open up my bible
And I always say I’m gonna talk to God more
By January fifth I hit Leviticus
And then I start to question everything that I believe in God for
By January 10th I put it down
And drown in doubt I’m down and out
Convinced that I have fallen out of grace now
Then I remember when You showed my Your face
The world is hungry for Your love and I’ve been runnin in place
So now I’m askin for Your help to get me back in this race
And I’mma speak my testimony just to give em a taste
Of what Your freedom really like before I hear it’s too late
Cause I got homies droppin dead from all these pills that they take
Ayo this thing an epidemic you can’t fathom the rate
And all rappers on the radio stay movin that weight
And I won’t hesitate to call you out when I know you’re fake
That goes to Future Juicy J and all the rest of you lames, yeah
If I had started making music just so I could get wealthy
I’d have gone to law school so Donald Trump would expel me
Then I’d sue the government in hopes that it would propel me
On my Zach De La Rocha, I won’t do what you tell me
Got a lot of hatred in my heart I need y’all to help me
I need you to pray for me, I need you to check me
Cause when I see my sin as God does it wrecks me
And I need that perspective up in my life to correct me
If racism dead, why are churches segregated?
This the land of the free
But lead the world in incarcerated citizens
With the minimum sentences
Still a remnant of the thing we thought we changed with the 13th amendment
We still growin, still movin
We stay steady, we go through it
We ain’t losin and y’all knew it
Don’t see the world in the same way I used to
The current state is tumultu

[Outro]
(Splash into water)
People say that drowning is actually a really peaceful way to die. It’s not difficult to see why. After the shock and hysteria passes, after fluids finally fill your lungs as you struggle to hold your breath, a certain serenity takes hold after you surrender. But you don’t die immediately, you become numb. And the longer that you’re under, the more you forget what could have been. And you lose perspective on what’s about to happen

Hendersin – The One Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
I’m workin’ hard like I needed the stress
And you know I’m still at it like an email address (Ooh)
TeamHenny, that’s the hive, like a bee with a nest
I’m a standup guy, never needed a test
They S-A-T the less they see
The more I do, that’s real talk, F-A-B (Ohh)
Tryna advance my placement the quest they P
Not here to follow trends, no F-A-D

[Chorus]
You can take all the sun away
Just because
Burn this page of the past away
You can’t take the one
The one that I love

[Verse 2]
I do it for the rich and the poor folks
For the ones who laugh, they always have more jokes (Ooh)
If I could make a hit song with four notes, can I have compassion for the ones that gave Donald Trump his core votes?
We all human at the end of the day
If you don’t have healthcare, they just send you away (Ooh)
Stop pretendin’ to say “Education is key”
I wish it was free, ’cause honestly depends if you patience
I’m speakin’ ’cause the beat was speakin’ to me
Don’t pay me no mind like I’m speakin’ for free (Ooh)
Look for the vision, keep seekin’ the sea
Uncharted waters like you just sick in the sea

[Bridge]
Use my, use my talents for good (Ooh)
And speak for, for the misunderstood (Ooh, yeah)
And do the, do the things that I should
And do the things they said that I never could

[Chorus]
You can take all the sun away
Just because
Burn this page of the past away
You can’t take the one
The one that I love

[Outro]
In broken mirrors, I’ve seen
I’ve seen a face that looks nothing like me
Ooh, you can change the light
You can turn it all to black
But you can’t change the memories

[Chorus]
You can take all the sun away
Just because
Burn this page of the past away
You can’t take the one
The one that I love

Uncle Murda – Rap Up 2018 Lyrics

Meek Mill came home, got picked up in a helicopter

Now you know him and Ghost gon’ have a few issues
When Tariq finally get killed, nobody gon’ miss you (We not)

Birdman got tired of gettin’ called the fuck out
Finally payed Wayne and he let the Carter V come out (Thank you!)
Juelz at the airport, forgot that he had a gun (How?)
Drake ain’t want nobody to know that he had a son
Drake vs Pusha T, that was a good one
If Drake would’ve responded, I think he could’ve won
Lettin’ us know Drake had a kid was a genius move (It was)
Minus that, the second diss track was just cool (A’ight)
Drake ain’t respond so Push got the W
Drake told LeBron somebody gonna end up snuffin’ you (Ha-ha)
Rondo snuffed Chris Paul and spit on him

Draymond Green called Kevin Durant a bitch
The NFL hated how Nike got behind Kaepernick

Free Ralo and AR-Ab they in the feds
Bring XXXTentacion back, bring Trippie Redd (RIP X)
Bring Mac Miller back, take Lil Xan
Fuck him anyway, shorty ain’t no 2Pac fan
Nas dropped and Jay dropped with Bey on the same day
Like Ether got Jay still feelin’ some kind of way
Jay was in that water, like, “I’ma protect me”
With the helmet on, lookin’ funny ridin’ that jet-ski (That was funny)
And he checked Offset for callin’ Bey a bitch
Cardi left Offset because of the cheatin’ shit
Give him another chance, he on the Gram explainin’ it
He ain’t fuck shorty, he was just entertainin’ it (I believe it)
Wendy Williams, talk about how yo’ husband cheatin’
Havin’ a oops baby with another girl, now you leavin’ (How you doin’?)
He tired of yo’ ass havin’ no ass, he played you

Don’t smile, bitch, you better cut it out (Stop it)
You still live in the projects at yo’ mother house (Ha-ha)
Kodak was on Ebro show and he walked out
How you gon’ try to talk about some shit he can’t talk ’bout
Pull ’em to the side and kick it if you tryna help
Don’t do it in no interview where he can indict himself
Safaree got robbed, went on air and he started cryin’
I don’t know if he was tellin’ the truth or if he was lyin’ (I hope it happened)
The corny nigga was fuckin’ Nicki

Papoose – The Golden Child Lyrics

[Intro: Papoose]
Yeah, yeah, uh
This for my baby (baby baby)
Golden Child (Golden Child)
Ha-ha (ha-ha)

[Verse 1: Papoose]
It was love at first sight, when I met your mom I was open, wow!
She the queen, I’m supposed to bow, pretty face with a potent smile
We planned to have you back then but tragedy slowed us down
‘Cause she went away for a while when your dad had to hold it down
I questioned God, like “Why is this happenin’?” You know it’s ’bout
Everything that happen, happen for a reason, I know it now
We argue what we gon’ name you, I feel that’s over now
It don’t matter to me ’cause to me, your name is the Golden Child!
The love we share, they ain’t build it, that’s why they can’t destroy it
Truthfully, I understand the ploy, this is something they can’t avoid
I sing to yo’ mama stomach, she say I am annoying
“Won’t you shut up and just go to sleep, I don’t want to hear it, boy!”
She always say I’m annoyin’, but she just paranoid
She afraid I’mma spoil you, you loud and she hate to hear the noise
The world is yours and I promise don’t gotta share your toys
I won’t let you cry unless the tears you cryin’ are tears of joy!

[Hook: Papoose & *Angelica Villa*]
I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I cannot wait to strap you down in that car seat
I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I can’t wait to make your bottle; I’m you, you are me!
*I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I cannot wait to strap you down in that car seat
I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I can’t wait to make your bottle; I’m you, you are me!*

[Verse 2: Remy Ma]
They say first comes love and then comes marriage
Never mentioned the devastation I had in the miscarriage
I was torn up, broken down, felt less than a woman
But all that pain was erased when the doctor said you was comin’!
Me and daddy were so happy, this is all we ever wanted
So protective of your presence, I was scared to show my stomach
The rumors [?] said pregnancy’s supposed to change you
My belly, your dad would rub it, he was hatin’ on my angles
‘Cause the pictures had it down pat, from the front it looked all flat
From the side you was pokin’ but never could I be called that
Still fit all my clothes and you had me glowin’
I was overjoyed, ain’t care what I was havin’, ’cause girl or boy
I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
Instantly knew me you and daddy would never part, please!
All my ladies, listen up
Never think of givin’ up
Doc said that we couldn’t, but look what God has given us!

[Hook: Papoose & *Angelica Villa*]
I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I cannot wait to strap you down in that car seat
I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I can’t wait to make your bottle; I’m you, you are me!
*I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I cannot wait to strap you down in that car seat
I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I can’t wait to make your bottle; I’m you, you are me!*

[Verse 3: Papoose]
Take you to school every day, before you eat, say your grace
You can achieve anything; marathon, not a race
Tell the truth, never lie, the limit is in the sky
When you talk to a person, make sure you look in they eye
I’m sorry the world we live in is not a place much better
Sorry that you was born into the Donald Trump era
Thankful that I’m a King, thankful your mom is a Queen
You was born under marriage, black love is supreme
Always respect your elders, say “thank you” and “please”
Your grandmother gon’ make you some macaroni and cheese
I tatted you on my arm, some people say it ain’t smart
I put you on my left arm ’cause that’s mo’ close to your heart
I’m excited to meet you, my eyes excited to see you
Your mom got milk in her breasts, she excited to feed you
I would never mislead you, misguide or deceive you
My fists are here to protect you, my mind excited to teach you!

[Hook: Papoose & *Angelica Villa*]
I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I cannot wait to strap you down in that car seat
I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I can’t wait to make your bottle; I’m you, you are me!
*I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I cannot wait to strap you down in that car seat
I heard your heartbeat
I heard your heartbeat
I can’t wait to make your bottle; I’m you, you are me!*

A$AP Rocky – Brotha Man Lyrics

[Bridge: A$AP Rocky]
(Yeah yeah)
Brotha man
Brotha, brotha
Gotta fight for somethin’
Stand for somethin’
Brotha, understand (no)
Gotta make the place
Take the truth (take the)
Get through
Right
Just keep the truth
Fight the blues, fight the blues
Brotha man, young man
Let me tell you somethin’
Young man, brotha man-brotha man
You gotta fight for somethin’
Stand for somethin’
That’s what the poem told me
It was greater poet that you know
I’d rather talk about how my neck is frozen and I
I’d rather talk about naked hoes and the stay up in the bitches
[?]

[Chorus: French Montana]
When I went to my bros
Told him help me please
Now we hop out the PJs
Posted by the P
My old bitch yellin’ come back
Come back, come back, babe
Come back

[Verse: A$AP Rocky, Snoop Dogg & Frank Ocean]
Harlem nights, quick speed, godspeed
Speed it like Grease Lightnin’, leather on my six-speed bike
Bicycle tires, icicle diamonds, popsicle stripes
Popsicles for the Klondikes, pop pop wheelies on the dirty bikes
15 sellin’ china white
Cops stoppin’ if you opposite o’ white
Pop pop like you opposite o’ right
Take heat lil nigga
Lowkey take lead on a nigga
Smooth durag ’round the boulevard
Back in the days on the train
Ride the bus before I ride another nigga wave
Beautiful, the water’s flat like asses pre-Onika (ye-ah)
You the smaller version, you the baby sneaker
Flacko I wonder how it feel to live or be like you
Album number three, and keep it G like Q
Heard you niggas get fly, like G like 2
Nah more like 4, like 3, not 2
Shittin’ on these niggas, like P like U
Drip Raheem and Q
Got Hi-C, like juice
Mama hubby got life, he got three strikes too
Real niggas bleed, like me, like you
That’s why I got a beam with a green light too
I don’t even make a scene, I just swing right through
I’m just bangin’ on my Qs and my Ps, like soup
Walk in my shoes, follow me like suit

[Bridge: A$AP Rocky]
Brotha man, young man
Let me tell you somethin’
Young man, brotha-brotha
Gotta fight for somethin’
Stand for somethin’
Brotha, understand
Gotta make the place
Take the truth (take the)
Get through
Right [?]

[Chorus: French Montana & Frank Ocean]
When I went to my bros
Told him help me please
Now we hop out the PJs
Posted by the P
My old bitch yellin’ come back
Come back, come back, babe
Come back (come back)
Come back (come back)
Come back (come back), babe

[Outro: Frank Ocean]
You’re a cornstar
All you fuck is corn broads
Frenchie faux pas
‘Cause you ain’t had no pa
The dealer got catches like an outfielder
(Are you?-are you?-are you?)
Getting that God’s view from towers
Lookin’ downward like I’m Donald Trump

Dead Sara – Unamerican lyrics

[Intro]
Woah!
Oh, oh yeah!
Wow!
[?]

[Verse 1]
I want to look like what they look like on the television
First thing when I wake up
No makeup
Kiss me ’til my face is numb
I’m scum of the earth, but I still spit on the dirt

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Lord, save me now
What a fool I’ve become
So help me God, I must hate everyone
Well, fuck this playing around
Don’t give a fuck if it allowed
Well, fuck you Donald Trump
Fuck this, fuck everyone

[Chorus]
And you could have my innocence
That I lost when I was six
I’m not your model citizen
No, I’m not your daughter
And I’m not your bitch
I guess I’m unamerican

[Post-Chorus]
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I guess I’m unamerican

[Verse 2]
I’m a good Samaritan
Yeah, a psychopath
I had to sweat off chemicals in a bubble bath
The all-American girl, lesbo-gay maniac
“Practice what you preach” is a promise you can’t keep
Woah!

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Lord, save me now
What a fool I’ve become
So help me God, I must hate everyone
Well, fuck this playing around
Don’t give a fuck if it allowed
Well, fuck you! Ha!
Fuck this, fuck everyone

[Chorus]
And you could have my innocence
That I lost when I was six
I’m not your model citizen
No, I’m not your daughter
And I’m not your bitch
I guess I’m unamerican

[Post-Chorus]
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I guess I’m unamerican

[Bridge]
Do you solemnly swear
That you’ll tell the truth
The whole truth
And nothing but the truth
So help you God?
Oh shit!

[Chorus]
You could have my innocence
That I lost when I was six
I’m not your model citizen
No, I’m not your daughter
And I’m not your bitch
I guess I’m unamerican

[Post-Chorus]
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I guess I’m unamerican

[Outro]
I wanna be an alien
I wanna be an alien
I wanna be an alien
I wanna be an alien

Mr. Kelly – Payroll (feat. BADJUJU) lyrics

I’m a real, deal thrill seeker
I know the drill
Girl my will’s weaker
But how come every time I make the decision
To visit you on the West End
You always gotta bring your best friend
That’s my bad
You just caught me at a bad time
Saying that I treat you as if you were just a pastime
And last time, I said that would be the las time
But I still had to “four” it like a backnine
Woah

But if you come get on my payroll
Maybe we can role play, eh
I can’t let another day go by, nah
Where I don’t make cake
I checked the shadow on my sundial, a while
Would you believe that it was half-day, eh
But every single time the sun’s down
Why do I always feel like I’m just half-wake, wait

Mr. Kelly says I’m at an altitude where attitude and gratitude
Go hand in hand,
Like longitude and latitude
I’m asking who else do you know
Has such an aptitude for these platitudes
Cause I cant take it anymore

Eanie, meanie, miney, moe
Pulling b****** by the fours
If she hollas, let ‘em go
She’ll be schemin’ on the low

Shhh, did y’all hear that
That’s the world’s smallest harmonica
Playing just for you and all of your friends
No Rachel, Phoebe, or Monica
Andromeda
Phenomena
To monitor
The moniker
Is treat all of you n***** like Donald Trump
On my follow-up
Why? Cause nowadays n***** androgynous
At alcoholic’s anonymous
Saying bottoms up
But don’t bother us
Which is ironic cause
I’m poppin’ bottles off the same emotions I kept bottled up
Now it’s time to f*** up the top like a phlebotomist
A product of all of the n***** we tryin’ to make proud of us

Chorus:
But if you come get on my payroll
Maybe we can role play, eh
I can’t let another day go by, nah
Where I don’t make cake
I checked the shadow on my sundial, a while
Would you believe that it was half-day, eh
But every single time the sun’s down
Why do I always feel like I’m just half-wake, wait, wait

Can we, can we
Can we, can we

Maybe we can role-play
