From Singers To Actors To Directors, Here Are Some Amazing Latinos Who Should Replace Trump’s Walk Of Fame Star

The City of West Hollywood unanimously voted to remove President Donald Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but tbh, not much will come of it. Stars aren’t exactly given to the people whose names are on them. They pay for the stars. However, the constant repairs to Trump’s star and the violence it sparks has become a safety concern for residents and officials of the city.

As a result, we came up with some Latinos to replace Trump to make things a little nicer and more attractive on the Walk of Fame.

First off, people in general support the removal of this star.

Lately, it feels like there’s not much we can do to stop POTUS’ tweets threatening war, spewing fake news, and dissing celebrities who are building schools for children.

The star has been in a constant state of vandalism since the election.

West Hollywood council members John D’Amico and Lindsey Horvath cited Trump’s sexual assault history and treatment of women, alongside the separation of families at the border as reasons for the removal.

So much so, that the city has had to put walls around it.

The West Hollywood City Council released a statement before their vote which said, “Similar to how certain members of the entertainment community have been removed from the Academy of Motion Pictures, due to their actions toward women, reflecting a stance on their values by the Academy, this is an opportunity for decision-makers to take a stand on their values in support of women and against disturbing treatment of women.

The removal begs the question: What’s next?

Once the decision was passed, the proposal will reach L.A. Mayor Garcetti’s desk. In addition to their moral arguments, they also have financial merit. It costs thousands of dollars to replace the star every time it’s vandalized, and is taking away from a California State landmark.

Some Twitter users have really A+ suggestions to change the star.

Pros:
-It’s so much cheaper.
-Convenient potty break.

The star has become so contentious that it is completely blocked from view now.

Zip tied border around a wood and duct tape secured star. It’s an ode to the male ego, que te piensas.

But, what if the star was removed and replaced with someone more relevant to entertainment? Like, Guillermo del Toro?

Mexican director del Toro is already on his way to getting his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a few years. He has produced iconic horror films that have entirely changed the way we look at horror. Shouldn’t he get better billing on the Walk of Fame?

Cypress Hill

Cypress Hill was the first Latino-American hip hop group to have a platinum and even multi-platinum albums, selling 20+ million albums worldwide. The group is from South Gate, California and definitely earned their spot.

Lupita Nyong’o

Nyong’o’s family is orginally from Kenya, but she was born in Mexico City, where her father was teaching at the time. She became the first Kenyan and Mexican actress to win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in “12 Years a Slave.” She’s actually getting her own star in the Class of 2019. Just let her replace the star.

John Leguizamo

While Leguizamo isn’t on deck to get his own star, we think he should. Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Leguizamo has slayed his way through Hollywood. From “Super Mario Bros.” to “Romeo + Juliet,” and even as “Sid the Sloth in Ice Age,” he has worked harder in his life than Trump has in two lifetimes.

He once said, “‘Latinos for Republicans. It’s like Roaches for Raid.”

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez has used her fame for good. Not only has she stayed true to her Mexican roots, but she’s also served as a role model for young Latinas. With the POTUS we have these days, it’s more important than ever to put the spotlight on the role models we want for our kids, don’t you think?

Gael García Bernal

Bernal is a breakout star. From “Amores perros” to “Y tu mamá también” to Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle,” Bernal is the new face of Mexican cinema, and for good reason.

He could easily be huge in Hollywood (and he already is for his work in Mexico and with Amazon), but he’s focused on building up the Mexican entertainment industry.

Diego Luna

Bernal’s best friend, partner and “Y tú mama también” co-star, Luna is with him on all fronts. He’s working to build film festivals in Mexico and a traveling festival throughout the world to bring Mexican cinema to the United States.

Michael Peña

Born and raised in Chicago, Peña worked with Luna in his film “Cesar Chavez” to help educate the younger generation of Latinos in America about the immigrant activist. Since then, he’s made it to Hollywood in “Million Dollar Baby,” “Crash,” “American Hustle” and “Ant-Man.”

Cardi B

Cardi wasn’t born with a silver spoon in her mouth, and she has worked hard for everything she has. Not only is she one of the most successful female rappers, she is changing the game.

Naya Rivera

Naya Rivera has repped LGBTQ+ Puerto Ricans like no other. While she is more of an ally than a member of the LGBT community, her role as lesbian Santana Lopez on “Glee,” has propelled her to be an advocate in her personal life.

Camila Cabello

Camila Cabello honestly needs no introduction. The pop singer has been advocating for the LGBTQ community and Dreamers since day one. She’s the most appropriate replacement. Her hair is everything.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba used her beauty and talent to make it to the top of Hollywood before having her children and retiring as a lifestyle guru and businesswoman. Honest Co. is the company, brand, and lifestyle for all the cool, hip Latina moms these days.

Demi Lovato

Lovato has been raising our generation since “Barney & Friends” and an example for how to live with mental illness and easily be a good person, a role model, and inspiration. She suffers from bipolar disorder, addiction, and an eating disorder. Despite all of this, she has been open about her struggles and keeps things real with her fans.

William Levy

Last but not least is the Latino Brad Pitt, William Levy. He was raised by a single mom in a poor fishing village in Cuba and moved to Miami when he was 14 years old. Levy’s slayed in telenovelas, but has been transitioning into Hollywood life just fine with Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club, and Addicted.

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos for Trump has long been a confusing organization in the Latino community. President Donald Trump has built his administration and brand to be squarely against people of color. Now, the Latinos for Trump group caused a stir when they posted a collage of flags that are not quite right.

Latinos for Trump really thought they had something when they posted their Hispanic Heritage Month collage.

The first, and most obvious mistake, is that the Mexican flag is backwards. The flag is supposed to be green, white, and red in that order. As we can all see, the collage has a Mexican flag that is red, white, and green. The eagle is even facing the wrong way so someone literally flipped the flag the wrong way.

Of course, some people tried to make sense of the bizarre Mexican flag snafu.

Last year, the Trump administration announced that it was cutting aid to three countries in Central America. The countries were El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Fox & Friends picked up the story but told their audience that Trump was cutting aid to “3 Mexican countries.” Perhaps this Twitter user is right and the Latinos for Trump are trying to suggest the existence of other Mexicos.

Someone else pointed out the issues with the Guatemalan flag in the top right corner.

People are very defensive about their cultural heritage and national origin. Messing up someone’s flag is a very serious issue for people. Just ask a Cuban or Puerto Rican about people confusing their flags. It is never a good thing.

Some people fixed the image for them so the organization can see what it should have looked like.

Good, clean lines with all of the flags facing the right way. The creator even changed the message in the middle for the Latino community. It is clear that social media is still willing to show up and teach a couple of lessons here and there.

Others had a more direct message for Latinos for Trump.

We all know that social media is where things go to be manipulated and made fun of. It is very important that if you make something for social media that you take good care to make sure that you check all of the right boxes and execute your work right the first time.

Michael Cohen’s New Tell-All Book Talks About Trump’s Scandalous Golden Shower Moment And His Hair Secrets

Things That Matter

Michael Cohen’s New Tell-All Book Talks About Trump’s Scandalous Golden Shower Moment And His Hair Secrets

By now, we’re pretty certain the Trumps have had their fill of scandalous tell-all books. After all, each one seems to published by former members of their inner circle who no longer want to be the keepers of their dirty laundry. In the weeks leading up to the upcoming election, the Trumps have seen some of their worst secrets and darkest moments spilled by family members and ex- BFFs. Now, the president’s former “fixer” Michael Cohen is taking a jab at yanking out the skeleton’s in Donald Trump’s closet.

In his latest book Disloyal: A Memoir Cohen tallies of an insane list of “dirty deeds” which he claims he performed for Trump. And of course, while Cohen is a man whose credibility has been tainted various times, we couldn’t help but take a peek at the dirty Trump laundry he’s airing out in the book. Particularly because he started writing it while in prison after pleading guilty to criminal lies and financial crimes carried out on Trump’s behalf.

Check out the book’s biggest spills below!

Trump isn’t a big fan of his own son Donald Jr. 

In his book, Cohen writes about Trump’s frequent dismissals of his eldest child son Donald Jr. “Over time, I would come to learn that his father held him in extremely low esteem,” Cohen writes in his book recalling a moment in which Trump had been getting ready for a cameo at a WWE wrestling event when his son asked him if he was nervous.

“I’m going in front of millions of people. What kind of stupid fucking question is that? Get out of here,” Cohen recalled of the moment Trump made his son leave the room. “That kid has the worst fucking judgment of anyone I have ever met. What a stupid thing to say — to put that thought in my head.” 

Cohen thinks Trump is a pretty big racist.

“The Trumps were actually racist,” Cohen writes about Trump and his father Fred. “As a rule, Trump expressed low opinions of all black folks,” Cohen recalled in the book. “What he said in private was far worse than what he uttered in public.” 

In his book, Cohen also claimed that Trump criticized countries led by Black leaders the moment Barack Obama became elected president.

“Tell me one country run by a black person that isn’t a shithole,” Trump asked Cohen. “They are all complete fucking toilets.” 

“South Africa was once a beautiful country twenty, thirty years ago,” Cohen claimed Trump said. “Mandela fucked the whole country up. Now it’s a shithole. Fuck Mandela. He was no leader.”

Trump is extremely jealous of Barack Obama.

Which we all knew but this bit below is particularly hilarious.

“Watching Obama’s Inauguration in 2008 with Trump, with the massive, adoring, joyful crowd on the Mall, incensed the Boss in a way I’d never seen before — he was literally losing his mind watching a handsome and self-evidently brilliant young black man take over,” Cohen wrote in the memoir. “When Obama won the Nobel Prize, Trump went ballistic.”

Trump’s hair myths are worse than you thought.

According to Cohen, Trump’s bizarre hairstyle is a result of a botched scalp surgery. Cohen alleges in his book that a hair-implant operation in the 1980s disfigured Trump’s scalp. Apparently, to hide his scars, he uses his hair (which when undone) hangs down below his shoulder on the right side. 

“The three-step procedure required a flop up of the hair from the back of his head, followed by the flip of the resulting overhang on the back of his pate, and then the flap of his combover on the right side, providing three layers of thinly disguised balding-male insecurity,” Cohen writes. 

Cohen says Trump really did get a golden shower

Cohen admits that he and the president attended a strip show in Las Vegas where an act “involved two strippers drinking champagne and pretending to snort coke as they undressed, while one of them simulated giving the other a golden shower as the other caught the fake urine and drank it.” 

Cohen claims in his book that he didn’t witness that part of the show personally but that it was performed that night after seeing it on the club’s Facebook page. 

He also says that he doesn’t know what happened at the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow in 2013. There the notorious “dossier” alleged Trump hosted strippers who peed on each other in his hotel room as part of a performance. Of course, Trump denies this ever happened.
