Just In Case You Needed Extra Motivation To Vote, Here Are The Most Offensive Trumpisms

After what felt like an infinity, the election is finally here. So what better way to remember this journey than with a throwback list of all the wild s**t Trump has said. You know, just in case you needed some extra motivation for when you’re standing in line to give a metaphorical middle finger to the worst presidential candidate in American history.

Remember when he said a Mexican judge couldn’t do his job because of his ethnicity?

No, no, not racist at all.

Oh and when he bashed Jeb Bush because of his wife’s race.

He must have forgotten that screenshots exist.

And who can forget his “I love Hispanics” Instagram post…with a taco bowl?

Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!

There’s also all of his sexually inappropriate remarks, like that whole “grab her by the p***y” thing.

Because having respect for women has never really been his thing.

And his comment on the number of sexual assaults that occur within the military.

As if sexual assault was something natural that can’t be prevented.

He encouraged people on Twitter to “check out [a] sex tape” that doesn’t exist because Alicia Machado had the audacity to call him out.

Trump really has no filter. At all. Which is why Hillary told him:

But we all know that’s gonna happen.

So there you have it, folks. One of the candidates running for president is a man who’s petty and says wild things about women, minorities, and the disabled. Luckily, it’s in your hands to stop him from being elected. SO GO OUT AND VOTE!

AOC Talks About Being Attacked By Trump And Wears A Pantsuit On Vanity Fair

AOC Talks About Being Attacked By Trump And Wears A Pantsuit On Vanity Fair

We have just a few days left before the upcoming presidential election and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is using every moment she has to ensure we end up on the right side of history. In her latest magazine feature, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez graced the cover of Vanity Fair wearing red lipstick, some amazing pantsuits, and baring her honest political opinions.

Dressed in a white, double-breasted suit by NY-based label Aliétte, Ocasio-Cortez also condemned revelations that Donald Trump had only paid $750 in federal income taxes.

Ocasio-Cortez featured on Vanity Fair’s November cover armed with red lipstick and thoughts about the future of our country and her career.

Vanity Fair’s cover story examines AOC’s first term and re-election for New York’s 14th congressional district. It also takes a deep look into the racist and sexist attack the congresswoman has endured while in office as well as her pursuits to champion Senator Bernie Sanders.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Ocasio-Cortez explained that she would “wake up in the morning and literally get a stack of pictures that were forwarded by Capitol police or FBI. Like, ‘These are the people who want to kill you today.’” But it’s not just private citizens that are attacking AOC and the freshman progressive lawmakers Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar who were members of “the squad.”

AOC has repeatedly been attacked by Donald Trump on all of his platforms.

“There was a time where the volume of threats had gotten so high that I didn’t even know if I was going to live to my next term,” Ocasio-Cortez explained. “Their sisterhood and their friendship, it’s not some political alliance. It’s a very deep, unconditional human bond.”

Now, Ocasio- Cortez says the election between Trump and Joe Biden will make the difference between “two countries.” The former result meaning that she “cannot honestly look [her district, which includes parts of The Bronx and Queens] in the eye and tell them that they will be safe.”

“I don’t know if I’m really going to be staying in the House forever, or if I do stay in the House, what that would look like,” she explained. “I truly make an assessment to see if I can be more effective. And so, you know, I don’t know if I could necessarily be more effective in an administration, but, for me that’s always what the question comes down to.”

Beyond her interview, AOC made some pretty powerful statements with her suit.

Like many women with political statements to make in history, AOC wore the color white as a symbol of hope and resistance. Similar to, Shirley Chisholm who wore white when she became the first Black woman to be elected to Congress, and Hillary Clinton who wore the color during her run for president, AOC wore white to make a statement. Just as she has in the past. You might remember that in January of 2019, AOC wore all-white as she was sworn into Congress.

“I wore all-white today to honor the women who paved the path before me, and for all the women yet to come,” she tweeted. “From suffragettes to Shirley Chisholm, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the mothers of the movement.”

Rep. Ruben Gallego Broke Down Jared Kushner’s White Privilege In A Twitter Thread About Their Paths To Harvard

Rep. Ruben Gallego Broke Down Jared Kushner’s White Privilege In A Twitter Thread About Their Paths To Harvard

Jared Kushner recently made headlines for saying that Black Americans have to “want to be successful.” Kushner continued in the Fox & Friends interview saying that Trump policies are trying to help them with issues that “they’re complaining about.” Congressman Ruben Gallego of Arizona took to Twitter to call out Kushner and his easy, money-paved path in life after the interview aired.

Rep. Ruben Gallego has a few words about Jared Kushner’s claim that Black Americans don’t “want to be successful.”

Kushner, Ivanka Trump’s husband, was being interviewed by Fox & Friends when he suggested that Black Americans don’t want to successful. He added that the Trump administration has created policies to help Black Americans. Specifically, the Trump administration has created policies to help Black Americans overcome things that “they’re complaining about.”

The interview was immediately slammed by Democrats and activists as being tone deaf. Furthermore, the rhetoric is reminiscent of language used against the Black community for decades to justify policies that disenfranchised and injured the Black community.

Rep. Gallego was one of Kushner’s classmates at Harvard and the two had very different paths to the prestigious school.

Rep. Gallego created a Twitter thread to show the hoops he had to jump through in order to make it to Harvard. As a Latino from a middle class family, Rep. Gallego didn’t have a lot of the same luxuries afford to him like someone of Kushner’s background. The congressman’s story about his way to the Ivy League school is something a lot of people of color can relate to.

The story is an extension and deeper dive into the college admission scandal narrative.

Rep. Gallego detailed his four years in high school with the mission of making it to Harvard. For him, that meant studying for his exams for years with free and used test preps he could get his hands on. There was a community support to make it possible for him to get materials he needed.

According to Data USA, Harvard’s student body is heavily white. The data shows that 41 percent of students are white, 13.5 percent are Asian, 8.19 percent are Hispanic or Latino, and 5.35 percent Black or African-American.

Even the interviewing process was something so many other students didn’t have to contend with.

Some universities, especially ivy league schools, require prospective students to interview with alums and administrators. These interviews weigh heavily in the process and for Rep. Gallego, they were not easy to get to. He had to rely on public transportation to make it to his various interviews around Chicago.

Rep. Gallego spent four years getting ready to go to Harvard.

After four years of hard work and sacrifice, Rep. Gallego was accepted to Harvard. His path to Harvard was filled with friends and family helping him along the way, which is common in Latino communities. It is a story that many of us are familiar with but it isn’t a truly universal story, as Rep. Gallego points out about Kushner.

Kushner’s easy path to Harvard is why the congressman took issue with Kushner’s comments.

Documents show that Kushner got into Harvard after his father pledged a $2.5 million gift to be paid in annual installments of $250,000. Both of Kushner’s parents were also members of Harvard’s Committee of University Resources and donated to the school. In an interview with ProPublica, a former administrator at Kushner’s high school admitted that no one at the school believed that he got admitted on his own merit. The official said that neither his grades nor SAT scores warranted his admission into Harvard.

Rep. Gallego ended his thread asking people to donate to the Biden campaign and the United Negro College Fund.

Rep. Gallego is clearly not letting this story go by without weighing in. Kushner’s comments have set off a firestorm of frustration with people across the nation.
