TV Land / YouTube

Here’s a rundown of the “Lopez” Season 2 premiere…

Fed up with the monotony of performing the same act every night, George walks away from the grind of his Las Vegas residency to rebuild his career and pitch a new project to his management team. But, during the meeting, they try to get him to resume his Vegas shows by telling him that he’s become irrelevant.

After George fires his representation for not believing in him, Olly follows and then negotiates a new relationship with him as his new magent (manager + agent = magent).

Manolo gets out of prison and then status quo returns to the show following a career-altering confrontation between George and his former opening act, Maronzio.

By the end of the premiere, the team is back together and stronger than ever until Manolo’s prison roommate (see: cellmate) drops in for the episode’s cliffhanger.

Why you should be watching…

One of the things that “Lopez” does really well is that it shows the vulnerable side of its lead as George experiences the ups and downs that come along with achieving success. At the heart of this show, there’s an honesty that Lopez, himself, opened up about during an interview with ESPN First Take, “People think that when you make it, all your problems disappear, but I think that when you make it, your problems are just beginning.”

“Lopez” delivers on the humor that you expect from a George Lopez comedy and then raises the bar with its relatability. Fans feel for the characters, and if the rest of Season 2 is as strong as the premiere, we’re all going to keep watching.

Comedian George Lopez said he helped out a U.S. service member make it home in time to be at the birth of his first child. 

Lopez writes in an Instagram post that he ran into the young man while at an airport bar. Lopez thanked the unnamed service member for his service and asked him where he was headed and learned he was taking leave to be at the birth of his first child.

Lopez was at an airport bar where he met a service member who was going to miss the birth of his son because he couldn’t afford a plane ticket home – he’d be taking the bus instead.

For Lopez, that just wasn’t an option. So to guarantee he would make it home in time, Lopez stepped in and helped. “Take this and buy yourself an airline ticket,” Lopez said in the Instagram post. 

In an Instagram post, Lopez shared the story of what happened.

Lopez shared pictures he received from the service member, letting Lopez know he made it to the birth in time. Lopez ended his post by reminding everyone to thank military members before taking an apparent jab at President Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again.”

“Take a moment to thank them for their service, because without the brave men and women and LGBTQ we wouldn’t enjoy the freedom to agree or disagree,” Lopez wrote. “America has always been great.”

The Instagram post has racked up nearly 150,000 likes

Many on Twitter hoped that there were more people like George Lopez on this Earth.

Same gurl, same. With al lthe negative news in the world we need more good people doing more good things.

While other’s pointed out that generosity is the best way to pay it forward.

There’s a little thing called karma and when you help people out, especially those who are less fortunate than you, the universe typically rewards you big.

And that one act of kindness obviously meant the world to a growing family.

While another hoped the heartwarming experience would send a signal to our president.

We doubt it but it’s possible that the commander-in-chief may possibly some how be inspired by the feel good moment. Maybe…? We all know that our country’s inhumane immigration policies could use some compassion.

And a lot of people on Twitter were just happy to finally hear some good news.

It’s so true though. We are all constantly overwhelmed by the onslaught of noticias malas, from migrants dying on their journey to the US to Trump’s racist remarks about ‘the Squad.’

So many were quick to welcome this moment of compassion and generosity between strangers. And we’re totally here for it.

Trump’s Children Were Called Anchor Babies By George Lopez And A Lot Of People Got Very Upset

The term “anchor baby” is an offensive term that President Donald Trump used before his political career. The phrase refers to the children of undocumented people U.S. By law, that makes them U.S. citizens. The term, however, is Trump’s way of demonizing the offspring of immigrants. Calling anyone an anchor baby is a moot point because everyone in the United States comes from immigrants except Native Americans, and some Mexicans whose ancestors were born on U.S. soil when the land still belonged to Mexico. But all of this is to say, the majority of U.S. citizens come from immigrants. Never the less, the term was brought up recently due to the impending ICE raids.

After Trump threatened undocumented people in the U.S. with ICE raids last week, comedian George Lopez told them to detain Trump’s “anchor” babies.

“Uh, @icegov ‘if your listening’ you can find these immigrants at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave – Signed Enrique Empanada the third 😭😭 #vivalaraza #45melapela.”

The post included mariachi music and the Trump family with photoshopped sombreros.

Lopez’s use of “anchor baby” is using Trump’s words against him by suggesting that his ex-wife and current wife, both immigrants, had children in the U.S. making them citizens, which is a birthright.

Lopez is a loud opponent of Trump and his administration since before the election. It began after the then-candidate referred to Mexicans as “rapists” and “criminals.”

During his 2017 comedy special, Lopez said if he ever ran into Trump, he would sexually assault him since he said that is what Mexicans do. Lopez also pretended to urinate on Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with a plastic water bottle.

So did people like the joke? Hmmm…yes and no.

The joke can be taken different ways depending how you look at it. For some people, it is great to see these words weaponized against the man who is harming the community.

He’s only saying what Trump has been saying for years.

Trump and Lopez have the same logic, which makes the joke very funny. They think that using insults is the way to debate these kinds of issues. Clearly, the Instagram post is catching people’s attention.

Did he go too far?

People didn’t like that he used a picture of the youngest Trump. However, to be fair, Trump has no issue with infants being taken from parents at the southern border and left in detention centers. Those in the detention centers have ended up getting pretty sick lately.

Lopez gained new fans from the joke.

They say some humor is supposed to be offensive. Not to mention that political comedy can get really offensive since people don’t like being challenged.

Oh, come on now. Why are you crying?

Did you think the joke was funny or do you think that Lopez went a step too far.
