John Leguizamo on Latin Trump Supporters: “Latin People for Republicans Are Like Roaches for Raid”

John Leguizamo isn’t a fan of Donald Trump, and he doesn’t understand why any self-respecting Latinx person would be either. During a new interview with Bill Maher, the actor described Trump supporters who are Hispanic and Latinx as “self-defeating and selfish,” going so far as to say, “Latin people for Republicans are like roaches for Raid.” Leguizamo appeared virtually on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher this past Friday to respond to a report that suggests President Trump is popular among young Latinx voters “because of the machismo factor.” The When They See Us actor didn’t hold in sharing his contempt for Trump or fellow Latinx people who vote for him. “Latin people for Republicans are like roaches for Raid. Let’s get real. I just feel like there’s a level of self-hate or just lack of ...

‘Listen all y’all, It’s a Sabotage’: Beastie Boys Get Behind Biden

“The Blind Pig” centers on the 42-year-old Ann Arbor, Michigan music venue which, like so many others, is financially crushed under Trump’s watch. Airing nationally during Sunday’s Steelers – Browns NFL game on CBS, the clip is voiced by co-owner Joe Malcoun, co-owner of the Blind Pig, and wraps with the punch of “Sabotage.” “A lot of restaurants and bars that have been mainstays for years will not make it through this — this is Donald Trump’s economy,” explains Malcoun. “My only hope, for my family and this business, and my community, is that Joe Biden wins this election.” With its iconic, Spike Jonze-directed “buddy cop” music video, “Sabotage” is one of trio’s best-known works. The song was introduced to a new generation of fans through its prominent placement in ...

Beastie Boys License a Song for an Ad for First Time and It’s for Joe Biden: Watch

Believe it or not, but the Beastie Boys has never licensed a song for any advertisement — that is, until now. As Variety points out, the legendary New York outfit gave the green light to Joe Biden to use “Sabotage” in his latest campaign spot. The spot in question revolves around how COVID-19 has affected the live music industry, zeroing in on the collateral damage to Ann Arbor’s historic venue The Bling Pig. Founded in 1971, the club has played host to everyone from Joan Baez to Nirvana. “For 50 years, the Blind Pig has been open and crowded, but right now, it’s an empty room,” Joe Malcoun, co-owner of the Blind Pig, explains in the commercial. This is the reality of Trump’s Covid response.” Malcoun adds, “This is Donald Trump’s economy: There is no plan and you don’t know how to go ...

Jennifer Lopez & Alex Rodriguez Join Joe Biden, Encourage Latino Community to Vote

Lopez added, “For me, it’s [about] unifying the nation again, you know, getting rid of this hate. Thinking about my kids walking around in a world where it’s OK to be racist or prejudiced because our administration says it’s OK — that, to me, is really sad because it’s not the country that I believe that I grew up in.” In the video segment, which also featured Biden’s wife, Jill, they spoke about the need to contain the COVID-19 outbreak, which has disproportionately affected the Latino population, and the power that Latino voices have. “My kind of hope and quest for the Latino community is that they start understanding their power,” J. Lo said. “Their vote counts.” Watch the clip below. You Deserve to Make Money Even When you are lookin...

Black Ops: Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron Hires Armed Security

Source: Jon Cherry / Getty Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron states that he and his family are in danger after receiving death threats. According to published reports, Cameron petitioned the Government to pay for armed security for him and his wife after receiving “credible” threats. The Government Contract Review Committee gave its approval to the embattled attorney general’s request to hire security after there apparently were “several serious, credible threats to the Attorney General’s health, welfare, and, safety,” according to documents from Cameron’s office. “Our office has received detailed threats against the Attorney General, his wife, and members of his family,” Cameron’s office told CNN in a statement. “The Attorney General’s protective detail determined that given the cr...

Head-Nodding Woman Behind Donald Trump Revealed As A Failed Trump-Loving Congressional Candidate

Source: BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI / Getty We didn’t watch Donald Trump’s trainwreck disguised as a town hall, but those who did couldn’t but notice the one woman behind the “president” passionately nodding in agreement with every ridiculous lie he said. The woman who donned a red mask stuck out like a sore thumb, showing her support for the super-spreader-in-chief was revealed to be a failed Trump-loving congressional candidate who ran back in 2018. The Miami Herald outed the head-nodder as Mayra Joli, a native of the Dominican Republic, and revealed she flopped big time when she ran for Congress two years ago as a Trump-boot licking “Independent.” Joli hilariously was only able to get less than three percent of the vote against Rep. Donna Shalala (D-FL) and Republican Maria Elvira Salazar. After...

Do Five Finger Death Punch Take an Anti-Mask Stance with “Living the Dream” Video?

Five Finger Death Punch have released a music video for the single “Living the Dream” that is rife with political symbolism. One aspect of the video appears to take an anti-mask stance, although there’s some ambiguity in the band’s intentions. In the video, civilians who wear masks are given a button that says “Compliant” emblazoned with a hammer and sickle (a longtime communist symbol). A sinister female leader who gives out the masks doesn’t have to wear one, as her button reads “Exempt”. There are also zombies hoarding toilet paper and Pulp Fiction-like gimps who are walked on a chain by the “Exempt” leader. The American flag is seen in the video with the stars replaced by the hammer and sickle, as well. When a masked ice cream truck worker is spotted with an actual American flag, Mrs. ...

Joe Biden Beats Comrade Donald Trump In Early Town Hall Ratings

Source: Chip Somodevilla / Getty Donald Trump isn’t going to like this bit of surprise news. Joe Biden’s Town Hall over on ABC beat out the President’s Town Hall over on MSNBC, per early results. Considering the slow-moving train wreck that is all things Donald Trump, more eyes tuning in to the former Vice President seems like evidence of Cheeto fatigue. Reports The Wrap: On ABC, Biden drew 12.7 million viewers from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. On NBC alone, Trump got 10.4 million viewers in the same time slot. Including the full 9 o’clock hour for Biden, the ABC event’s viewership average was 12.2 million. Biden also beat Trump among adults 18-49, with a 2.6 rating to the president’s 1.7 rating. The numbers aren’t final due to a myriad of reasons. One in particular is that Trump’s was also simulcast ...

Twitter Changes ‘Hacked Materials’ Policy After Republican Snowflakes Cried About Blocked Tweets

Source: PRAKASH SINGH / Getty Twitter has been pretty firm on its strong stance against sharing misinformation and straight-up nonsense on its service that could impact the presidential election. But the social media company had to revise one of its policies following some belly-aching from right-wing snowflakes. This week the New York Post, who isn’t shy about their love for Donald Trump, dropped a story about Hunter Biden that got its information from emails from a real shady source *coughs* Rudy Guiliani. Twitter wasn’t here for it and began blocking links to the fake news shared by right-wing accounts claiming that it violated its policies when it comes to sharing “hacked materials.” As expected, Republican officials cried about Twitter blocking the story and claimed that Twitter was o...

Alice Cooper Enters 2020 Presidential Race with New “Elected” Video: Watch

Every four years since Alice Cooper released the iconic single “Elected” in 1972, the rocker has “satirically” run for president. Just in the nick of time, Cooper has thrown his hat into the 2020 race, releasing an updated video for “Elected” and a ton of “Alice Cooper for President” merch. Running on the “Wild Party” ticket, Cooper’s campaign platform says it all: “I can do nothing as well as they can do nothing.” With his official website adding, “I have absolutely no idea what to do.” The new “Elected” video takes a humorous and lighthearted approach to the campaign process, which is much appreciated considering the real-life campaign has been anything but. Cooper sings the song through a loudspeaker from a podium, and the words remain as relevant as ever. Fans can show their support wi...
