Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Announce Divorce. Internet Suspects Trump Had Something to Do With It |Heat Street

“And some even speculated that Pitt’s recent comments about the Republican Presidential candidate—telling reporters that he can’t “bring myself to think” Trump could be President —might have contributed to growing acrimony inside his relationship. Jolie is mum on her politics, but her father, Jon Voight, is a vocal Trump supporter.”

If Jolie is so liberal, why doesn’t she use her celebrity status to speak out against social injustice, racism, and bigotry, the main reasons why there are so many refugees to start with.

Is Lying Trump’s Strategy? – The New York Times

“We hear from Pamela Meyer, an expert on lying and the author of “Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception.”

“I think he’s a great liar,” Ms. Meyer told us of Mr. Trump. “A good liar intuitively knows what it is you want to hear, dangles it out in front of you just when you need it, expresses confidence enough so that you allow them a path if you think they’re lying or might trust them a little bit more than you normally would.””

That is what the Trump is good at, lying with a straight face. Unfortunately, America has millions of gullible, naive or closet bigots willing to make captain of a ship in distress a person who has no experience and lies to appear competent.

See Samantha Bee Blast NBC, Fallon for Coddling Donald Trump – Rolling Stone

“…Bee pointed out that while a majority of Americans agree that Trump is biased against women and minorities, they don’t care. “A lot of voters have decided that racism and sexism aren’t great, but they’re not a dealbreaker – kinda like a sandwich with too much mayo,” Bee cracked. “They think they can just scrape off the extra white nonsense.”

One less television station to watch starting today. It is outrageous that in the name of entertainment, we must be blind and deaf to bigotry, sexism and racism. Fallon used to be funny, the Roots must be getting paid a lot of money. Questlove is a hypocrite and a discredit to his race.   The Roots should quit the “blonde hair rubbing” host’s show and apologize to all African-American. How can they continue their career playing music based on a genre based on African-American roots, making money off of a person who cuddles a bigot in their presence?  The Roots lost all street credibility.   I guess they can forget their shaming by looking into their bank accounts.                                                             via See Samantha Bee Blast NBC, Fallon for Coddling Donald Trump – Rolling Stone

Trump used $258,000 from his charity to settle legal problems – The Washington Post

“Donald Trump spent more than a quarter-million dollars from his charitable foundation to settle lawsuits that involved the billionaire’s for-profit businesses, according to interviews and a review of legal documents.”

Yes, the Trump knows how to use the system to help himself. The mystery is how come he gets away with it? Is everybody so amused because he is an entertainer? Is he too big to fail in America?

Video Released in Terence Crutcher’s Killing by Tulsa Police – The New York Times

“…a white police officer fatally shot an unarmed black man who could be seen raising his hands above his head.”

Another senseless death in the name of “law and order”. Putting hands up is not enough to signal surrender if you are an African-American.

How Matt Lauer Was ‘Hung Out to Dry’ by His Bosses at NBC | TVWeek

“Lauer was criticized by Clinton supporters for grilling the candidate on her email scandal and rushing the Democrat through answers on other topics, and for being too deferential to Trump,” The New York Post’s Page Six reports. “In a fundraising letter a day later, Clinton’s camp even mentioned that Lauer ‘fell flat.’”

A cakewalk for the Trump, and hell for the lady candidate = deplorable indeed.
