Fernandez was so affected by Trump’s remarks, he took time from his regularly scheduled magic shenanigans to bring you this video.

“When you say, Mr. Donald Trump, that Mexico is sending its people over as if it were a government protocol, you are simply flawed sir. These are people that are quite literally and desperately seeking the basic human rights of survival.”

Eddie G! decided to take a satirical approach with his popular loudmouthed character, Tiburcio, to show just how inane Trump’s comments were.

“Today, I saw in the noticias that a bunch of people are running for presidente of the United States: HiLARiA CLiNTON, Teodoro Cruz, El Perrito de Tejas y, the other day, El Pelón Pelo Rico también anuncio.  So because I have a better mustache than all of those people put together, I thought…¿Porque yo no?”

It may not be the sexiest topic on the Internet, but it is provocative.  QueFish brings it home with her comments on the Trump.

“Donald Trump is super conservative. If he wins the presidency it’s going to become illegal for women to wear pants. Anything that’s not gringa or blanca will be a crime.”

Dross took to YouTube to explain why we shouldn’t even bother with a man like this.

“It’s a waste of time to get offended by Donald Trump’s remarks. Why? It’s simple. Principally, he does not have any chance of becoming president of the United States…Donald Trump is no more or less than a maniacal clown trying to get attention. This is why he will never be president of the United States. This is why is he is exclusively doing it so people worldwide talk about him. This is why, in the end, we shouldn’t pay him an ounce of attention. We shouldn’t waste our time hating or detesting him.”

Your three favorite gentlemen, José “El Pepe” Salazar, El Hijo Del Cielo and Geru, engage in a lively debate, er, rather just aggressively agree with each other that Trump is a clown.

“Donald Trump is a clown. He literally has the hair to be a real clown. He’s the owner of stupid businesses like Miss Universe and The Apprentice, which doesn’t interest us. Trump, you’re not going to get anywhere, you’re not going to win the Republican vote.”

Humor Negro Makalakesh:


Humor Negro Makalakesh is the most pissed off.  Listen to him nail Trump to the wall.

“Donald Trump is a Republican and it it’s enough to listen to him para que nos encabronemos. One of his initiatives is to build a massive wall along the border because too many Mexicans are responsible for trafficking drugs and raping people… Pinche cabeza de cebolla.”

Google Is Pledging $250K To Help With DACA Applications And Renewals

Google Is Pledging $250K To Help With DACA Applications And Renewals

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, is not a contentious topic among Americans. The program offers young adults who entered the U.S. as children relief from deportation and a chance to live out of the shadows. Now that it has been reinstated, Google wants to help some people achieve the dream of being a DACA recipient.

Google is pledging a quarter of a million dollars to help people apply for DACA.

The Trump administration did everything in their power to end DACA. The constant uncertainty has left hundreds of thousands of young people in limbo. The war waged against Dreamers by the Trump administration came to a temporary end when a federal judge ruled that Chad Wolf was illegally installed as the head of the Department of Homeland Security. It invalidated a member from Wolf stating that no new DACA applications would be approved.

Kent Walker, the SVP of Global Affairs, laid out the case for DACA in an essay.

Walker discusses the uncertainty the hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients currently face after the tumultuous time for the program. He also touches on the economic hardships that has befallen so many because of the pandemic. With so many people out of work, some Dreamers do not have the money to apply or renew their DACA due to a lack of financial resources. For that reason, Google is getting involved.

“We want to do our part, so Google.org is making a $250,000 grant to United We Dream to cover the DACA application fees of over 500 Dreamers,” writes Walker. “This grant builds on over $35 million in support that Google.org and Google employees have contributed over the years to support immigrants and refugees worldwide, including more than $1 million from Googlers and Google.org specifically supporting DACA and domestic immigration efforts through employee giving campaigns led by HOLA (Google’s Latino Employee Resource Group).”

People are celebrating Google for their decision but are calling on Congress to do more.

Congress will ultimately have to decide on what to do for the Dreamers. There has been growing pressure from both sides of the aisle calling on Congress to work towards granting them citizenship. DACA is a risk of being dismantled at any moment. It is up to Congress to come through and deliver a bill to fix the issue once and for all.

“We know this is only a temporary solution. We need legislation that not only protects Dreamers, but also delivers other much-needed reforms,” writes Walker. “We will support efforts by the new Congress and incoming Administration to pass comprehensive immigration reform that improves employment-based visa programs that enhance American competitiveness, gives greater assurance to immigrant workers and employers, and promotes better and more humane immigration processing and border security practices.”

What Is the 25th Amendment and What Does it Do?: A Primer

So in case you missed it, some crazy stuff went down at the Capitol yesterday. A mob of far-right Trump supporters broke into the Capitol building in “protest” of Congress ratifying President Elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College votes.

The heinous episode shocked and rattled many Americans. After months of inflammatory rhetoric, President Trump effectively activated his base into violent and treasonous actions. And people are upset. 

Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have since called for Trump’s resignation. But knowing President Trump, it isn’t likely that he’s going to do that.

Because of that, lawmakers have reportedly been having talks to discuss invoking the 25th Amendment.

The 25th Amendment has four sections that dictate what will happen in the event of an acting president being unable to carry out the duties of office. These events have usually amounted to…colonoscopies (no, really). But this time around, lawmakers are looking to the fourth section of the amendment to remove Trump from office. And this is where the wording gets super lawyer-y.

Section Four the 25th Amendment states:

“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”

Translation: The Vice President, Trump’s cabinet, the Senate leader, and the Speaker of the House would all have to agree to ousting Trump.

It’s a little complicated, so let’s break it down. Vice President Pence and the majority (11 out of 23) of Trump’s cabinet would have to agree that he is unfit for office. Then, they must submit a written request to the “President pro Tempore” of the Senate (who is Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley) as well as the Speaker of the House (California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi).

But wait, that’s not all. As soon as this motion is enacted, President Trump would be able to contest that decision (which he most definitely would). In that case, VP Mike Pence, Senator Grassley, and Congresswoman Pelosi would have to re-draft another statement insisting that he is, indeed, unfit for office.

Then, two-thirds of both the Senate and the House of Representatives would have to agree with their decision.

Only then would Trump be permanently removed from the presidency.

So, yeah…a lot of steps. But there’s a good reason for that. If removing a president from office were easy, it would be done a lot more often and our democracy would be a lot shakier.

Remember relentlessly hearing about the “checks and balances” of our government in elementary school? This is what our teachers were talking about. A lot of different people in different parts of the government have to sign-off on hard decisions so we can all make sure every action is justified and reasonable.
