Carla Hernandez from UT Austin Just Caused an Uproar Over Her GOP Debate Question

So, last night during the 5th and FINAL Republican presidential debate, Carla Hernandez of UT Austin asked the candidates how they felt about a particular Bible verse as it pertains to Syrian refugees. What could possibly happen when a Latina asks Republicans a question about the Bible tied to the refugee crisis? This.

Here is the question that sent Twitter, and the GOP candidates, into a tailspin.

In case you didn’t catch that, Carla Hernandez asked all the Republican candidates, “If the Bible clearly states that we need to embrace those in need and not fear, how can we justify not accepting refugees?”

You could see the candidates on stage feeling like this:

It’s like they were all trying to find a way to stay anti-refugee, but pro-Bible without saying anything about either.

Chris Christie was the first to tackle the startling question by…not really answering the question.

Chris Christie: “What I say to Carla is that the first job of the president of the United States is to protect your safety and your security and the security and safety of your family. And this debate stops with me in the discussions with the FBI director.”

But…that doesn’t really answer her question.

Immediately, there were some people on Twitter like:

Some immediately grabbed the popcorn and got ready for the show.

Who would have thought that a Latina asking Republican candidates a question would be so controversial? Answer: everyone.

There was so much gratitude toward Carla for bringing up the Bible.

Others thought the question had no room in the debate.

Because, like the Constitution says, the Bible has no place in government.

And, of course, there were some serious haters.

It seems like Carla Hernandez from UT Austin really ruffled some feathers.

But it seems that more people had love for Carla Hernandez.

And, of course, there was a wall joke.

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

Vaccines are rolling out across the country. People are getting their shots so life can finally start getting back to normal after a year of quarantining and social distancing. Mariah Carey let her fans join on her first shot and it became iconic.

Mariah Carey got her first shot of the vaccine and hit that whistle note.

More and more Americans are finally getting vaccinated to get the world back to normal. More than 160 million vaccines have been given in the U.S. and people are starting to see the results. Life is slowly getting back to normal for families who haven’t seen each other in years.

The singer was “excited and nervous a little bit” about getting the vaccine. Her demeanor showed just how impactful it is for people to do their part to get us back to normal.

True to form, Carey was in her camera-ready pose when she was getting ready.

People receiving the vaccine are told to keep their arm relaxed but Carey clearly isn’t made for that. How do you just turn off your star charisma?

It’s important to keep your arm relaxed while you are getting your vaccination to save you from the pain. If your arm is tense or in an awkward position, it is more likely to move during the jab, which can be painful. Listen to your nurses.

Some people are very curious how someone so young got the vaccine.

President Joe Biden announced that all states must make vaccine eligibility open to all adults by April 19. Some states are allowing people as young as 16 to get vaccinated. This is an accelerated deadline from the previously called for May 1. President Biden has worked hard to push the vaccination rate up and he has delivered on his promises for various vaccination deadlines.

People want to know if the vocal skills are a side effect of the vaccine.

There are a lot of conspiracy theories circulating about the vaccine. Some people believe that Bill Gates is microchipping them using the vaccine. It is a conspiracy that persists despite people definitively debunking the theory.

Congratulations, Mariah!

The world is eager to get back to normal and the vaccination rollout across the world is going to get us there. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is slowly releasing new guidelines about what fully vaccinated people are able to do.

For example, it is safe for fully vaccinated people to gather in small groups indoors without masks and social distancing. Fully vaccinated people can also fly on airplanes without much risk because of the effectiveness of the vaccine.
