Billy Bush lost his NBC Today Show job after the Access Hollywood tape emerged showing him play the straight man to Donald Trump’s lewd conversation. Trump went on to be president. A few days ago Trump claimed the British were in on the “wiretapping” of Trump Tower. When pressed Trump said he heard it form a judge on Fox News. Judge Napolitano has been suspended from the network and Trump is still president. Association with POTUS can cost you your job.

In 1995 the n-word was popularized during the OJ Simpson trial. The euphemism was used so the jury would not be offended by the amount of times the word was used throughout the trial. Since that time it has been adopted as a way of saying the word while not saying the word. Now the NBC Carmichael will air in episode this spring the n-word will be flying. This all black cast feel they have right to use the word, but do they? Read the linked story and share your thoughts.

Chuck Berry died yesterday but he has left a musical legacy that will last forever. We were just listening to a tribute on Meet the Press and his music was playing, and it still makes you want to move. I said to my husband what current music will actually stand the test of time?

To my surprise I saw the editor of Breitbart being interviewed on the Today Show this morning. Just because this is Trump’s media favorite does not mean it also has to be legitimized by the mainstream, but that is what the interview did. it made the inflammatory rhetoric seem sane and it simply is not.
From the land of Twitter Bow Wow has not only crossed the line he also spat on it. This is no way to talk about the President and the First Lady.
Snoop Dog released a video that features him shooting a Trump “clown”. His video is disrespectful but as an artist he can do it. President Trump clapped back. Do you think he was justified.
Last night I watched the first episode of the second season of WGN Underground. All the characters are back from last season and they are all in various stages of agony. What else could we expect? The story is about slavery and slavery was agony. So when did slavery become entertainment? The New Birth of a Nation, 12 Years a Slave or does it go all the way back to the romanticized slavery saga Gone with the Wind? Sure the acting is great but do we really want to watch the overseer hit the male slave and then he turns around and hits the female slave that he calls his woman? Is this the kind of thing we want to curl up and watch on a weekly basis? What do you think is this good entertainment or is this simply a sad tale that makes you angry or simply sad?

Ben Carson called the slaves immigrants. This is another attempt to sanitize the atrocity of slavery. Slaves were forcibly brought here in chains. They were not seeking the American Dream they were brought here to help others achieve their dreams. Immigrants make a choice to come but slaves were not given a choices. This statement is just stupid. Share your thoughts.
Donald Trump embraced the birther conspiracy and rode it into the White House. He only abandoned it or stopped talking about it when it no longer served his diabolical purpose. Many people thought that when he actually assumed office he would develop a presidential restraint, but we can see that is not happening. Last Tuesday night we saw a glimpse of a real president when he addressed a joint session of Congress and he some saw this as a real turning point but the change was short-lived. Over the weekend he returned to the real Donald…the reality tv Donald. He is the say anything Donald including accusing former President Obama of approving wiretapping at Trump Tower. He said this during one of his Twitter Fits over the weekend. He has nothing to back up his claims other than articles written by his conspiracy theorists pals. It is painful to see his minions come on camera and attempt to defend the indefensible. They are calling for an investigation. An investigation of what? The media is making an effort to hold their feet to the fire as they continue defense of the indefensible. President Obama never really called Trump a liar but now is the time. When you are in a street fight it comes a time that you have to put the rules on the shelve and fight fist for fist. Trump has to be stopped. He is the president but it is time to call a lie a lie and this is not a case of “alternative facts” this is simply straight up lying.
