Tiffany Cross Tells Conservative Troll Megyn Kelly To “Stop Punching Above Her Weight” During Legendary Monologue

HipHopWired Featured Video Source: Marla Aufmuth / Getty This is exactly why fans of Tiffany Cross, aka politics bae, have been screaming for years for MSNBC to give her a show. Over the weekend, Tiffany Cross had time for the conservative troll and former Fox News host Megyn Kelly for constantly hating on Black women like Naomi Osaka and Meghan Markle. Cross has been used her well-deserved MSNBC weekend show The Cross Connection to address Kelly, or as she hilariously and accurately called her the “Queen of Karens” for her unwarranted comments towards Black women during her popular segment. She began the viral dialogue by pointing out that she usually uses the time to address “relevant” individuals. Still, for this particular instance, she would instead take a “slightly different approach...

Caitlyn Jenner Pauses California Governor Campaign to Film Celebrity Big Brother

California’s upcoming election to recall Governor Gavin Newsom is a little less than two months away. Caitlyn Jenner, arguably the most famous person running to claim his throne, isn’t frantically trying to win over undecided voters in the final weeks before the election. Instead, she’s reportedly putting her gubernatorial campaign on pause to film Celebrity Big Brother in Australia. According to Vanity Fair, the former Olympian and Keeping Up with the Kardashians star landed in Sydney earlier this week and must quarantine for two weeks before shooting can start for the new season of Celebrity Big Brother. Representatives for the reality TV show have not yet confirmed Caitlyn Jenner is a cast member on the program, but a local Australian tabloid claims that she is and will be paid $372,500...

Sad! No One is Buying Tickets to Donald Trump’s Pity Party “History Tour”

Turns out a twice-impeached ex-president isn’t a good concert draw. As Politico reports, Donald Trump’s upcoming “History Tour” with disgraced FOX News commentator Bill O’Reilly is having a hard time moving tickets. The tour, which was announced last month, promises “hard-hitting” conversations between Trump and O’Reilly offering a “never-before-heard inside view of [Trump’s] administration.” In a statement announcing his participation, Trump said the events would be “fun, fun, fun, for everyone who attends!” And yet, more than a month later, a large amount of tickets for each of the four shows remain available for purchase. Politico checked in with the box offices at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL; Amway Center in Orlando, FL; Toyota Center in Houston, TX; and American Airlines Center...

Child Tax Credit Payments Begin Hitting Accounts Thanks To President Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan

HipHopWired Featured Video Source: Chip Somodevilla / Getty President Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan was designed to help struggling families suffering from financial woes that stemmed from the coronavirus pandemic. With the economy slowly recovering and normalcy appearing to be on the rise, Child Tax Credit payments will begin hitting bank accounts this week. On Thursday, (July 15), millions of parents will begin receiving monthly payments under the expanded plan according to widely published reports. As part of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, the Child Tax Credit expansion will increase the overall credit claimed for some families and will parse the paments out monthly instead of one lump sum although that is an optional choice. “One of the big ideas is to align this with the e...

Kremlin Papers Seemingly Point To Putin Plot To Land Donald Trump In White House

HipHopWired Featured Video Source: Bloomberg / Getty The Kremlin, best known as the seat of the governing body of Russia, has famously kept its secrets away from the public with vault-like efficiency. However, leaked papers are suggesting that Russian President Vladimir Putin endorsed a plot to place former President Donald Trump in the White House in 2016. The Guardian reports that the Kremlin documents appear to show that Putin authorized a top-secret spy operation to push Trump ahead in the 2016 presidential election during a closed session of Russian’s national security council. The meeting took place on January 22, 2016, well ahead of the November elections, and was attended by a gathering of Putin’s top intelligence leaders and senior staffers. In the meeting, Trump was referred to a...

Mel Gibson Seen Saluting Dear Leader

When Donald Trump entered the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for UFC 264 over the weekend, he was greeted by a chorus of “U-S-A” to drown out the scattered boos. But one other attendee gave the ex-POTUS a special hailing, as video shows Mel Gibson saluting Trump as he walked to his seat. Saturday’s headline bout between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirer drew a star-studded crowd, bringing out everyone from Dave Chappelle to Justin Bieber. Trump’s attendance wasn’t terribly surprising, as UFC head Dana White is his longtime friend, and Irish national/ultimate heel McGregor once called the head of a recently indicted organization a “phenomenal” president. And to be fair, events like UFC are unifying regardless of political affiliation. Still, watching Gibson, a man known for his bigoted and craz...
