Donald Trump Talked Sh** But Latinos Fought Back, Here’s How

There simply was no way to ignore Donald Trump this year was there? I mean, when the 69-year-old billionaire announced he was entering the GOP presidential race in June he did it with an immigrant-bashing flair that demanded attention. But lets ignore him for a moment and celebrate these Latinos that stood up to Donald Trump.

Regional music star Luis Coronel and TV/radio personality Don Cheto called out Trump and his anti-immigrant sentiments in a video remake of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.” Directed by Jessy Terrero, the video also features cameos from other regional music stars such as Noel Torres and Chiquis Rivera.

This made Trump so mad, he had Ramos escorted out because how dare he ask questions, who does he think he is? A REPORTER?!

Donaldo Trumpez is just like Donald Trump except he’s a Mexican presidential hopeful. He wants to build a wall on the border too, but in his case it’s to keep Americans out of Mexico. It’s all funny and satirically terrifying at the same time.

Christmas Came Early Folks! Turns Out Kelly Anne Conway’s Daughter Is A Liberal

Christmas Came Early Folks! Turns Out Kelly Anne Conway’s Daughter Is A Liberal

When it comes to Kelly Anne Conway, it turns out her apples are falling far from the tree.

That’s right, Kellyanne Conway counselor to President Donald Trump, the
“alternative facts” spin doctor, and Republican nutcracker, has a liberal daughter. Claudia Conway is the teenage daughter of the controversial Republican and it turns out that while her mother very well may be a fan of the extremely problematic president with White nationalist ties, she is an ardent Trump critic.

Recently videos and posts shared from Claudia’s TikTok and Instagram posts revealed at least one out of four of Conway’s children isn’t a fan of her mother’s political party.

New York Times reporter Taylor Lorenz thrust Claudia into the spotlight earlier this week when she shared a string of videos taken and posed by the teenager which feature her ribbing Trump supporters for their politics. In several posts, Claudia encouraged TikTok followers, which the Times has said clocks in at 16,000, to leave one-star reviews of the president’s businesses. She has also used her pages to make fun of the difficulty of having political opinions different from that of her politically polarized parents.

“Believe it or not you can have your own opinions simply by educating yourself,” Claudia said in one video.

In another TikTok post, Claudia wrote “why do people hate on trump supporters… like why can’t we just respect everyone’s opinions? SIKE nah block me pls and then educate yourself.”

Note: Ivanka Trump DOES follow Claudia on Instagram which means this teen has some cajones.

Claudia has also expressed support for Black Lives Matter protests.

In the bio section of her TikTok account, Claudia writes, “it’s a great day to arrest brett hankison, john mattingly, and myles cosgrove.” The post is a reference to the death of Breonna Taylor who was shot and killed by Louisville, Kentucky police in her own home. According to The Washington Post, Taylor’s family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the officers. As of today, only Brett Hankison has been fired from the Louisville Metro Police.

Claudia isn’t the first Conway with liberals to cause some trouble for Kellyanne.

Conway’s husband George Conway, whom she married in April 2001, has been vocal about his negative opinions of Donald Trump. Throughout Trump’s presidency, Conway has questioned the president’s mental health, judgment, and intelligence. He has also drawn criticism from the president directly.

In 2019, Trump tweeted about Conway’s marriage to George Conway writing “George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!” 

In a comment to Claudia’s recent post about having different opinions than your parents, one follower wrote “Hello sis welcome to the left,” to which Claudia replied. “Hehe I’ve been here girly.”

First Their Food Samples, Now Costco’s Canceled Their Sheet Cakes— What Next The Apocalypse?

Life’s rough for a Costco customer these days.

Amid the Coronavirus pandemic, card-carrying Costco lovers have faced product restrictions, long lines, and the suspension of food samples. Now the membership-only warehouse has eliminated their iconic half-sheet cakes.

You know. The delicious sugary cakes that have been there for you for every birthday, pool party, and graduation. Even worse? the blow comes right on the heels of July 4th.

Costco quietly put a halt to selling the $20 half-sheet cakes in all of its stores.

The brand has instead been steering to customers toward its 10-inch round cakes and their other baked goods. Outraged customers were quick to spark complaints on Twitter and Facebook promoting the brand to explain in a statement to its Facebook account. “To help limit personal contact and create more space for social distancing, Costco has reduced service in some departments,” Costco wrote on their Facebook page. In a statement to CNN Business, Costco confirmed it’s not selling the half-sheet cakes anymore but has “no immediate plans” to bring it back.

The decision corresponds with recommendations from various US states and health agencies to avoid or prohibit large gatherings amid the current Covid-19 pandemic. Real fans of Costco’s sheet cakes know that they serve about 50 people. And while of course, we know that the store’s decision to promote social distancing is a good one, we still can mourn the indefinite loss of one of America’s greatest comfort foods.
