It was the battle of all battles as America Ferrera faced-off her best friend and former “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” colleague, Amber Tamblyn, on “Lip Sync Battle” Wednesday night. Ferrera kicked off the battle with Missy Elliott’s “Gossip Folks” and even dropped the mic before Tamblyn performed  Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know.” The real showdown, however, happened in round two.

For a second, America Ferrera had us thinking she was going to let out her inner Sasha Fierce as she teased this on social media.

Sorry, not sorry. ??????

That’s when we all knew Amanda was doomed in the battle.

She said: “If you don’t move when you hear that song, you’re not human.”

Yup. Totally agree and totally owned.

Amber Tamblyn followed with Color Me Badd’s “I Wanna Sex You Up.” Dressed. As. Trump.

Knowing her BFF is a Clinton supporter and all, we can’t believe she went there! But she did.

Meanwhile, Chrissy Teigen was “building a wall” out of toy bricks… which America later destroyed.

“This is just symbolic of the wall I would build around myself if Donald Trump won,” said Chrissy.

So who won?

Kinda obvious, no?

This Paper Just Broke Up With Marco Rubio Because Of Donald Trump

@marcorubiofla / Instagram

The Senate race in Florida is heating up and the Miami Herald just added more fuel to the fire. The newspaper, which has long been on Marco Rubio‘s side, threw their support behind Democratic candidate Patrick Murphy. What can be more embarrassing than losing the support of your hometown newspaper? Not a lot. Here are just some of the reasons that the Miami Herald is backing Rubio’s opponent.

Marco Rubio just lost one of his biggest allies: the Miami Herald.

The newspaper claims that they have always supported the politician since the beginning of his political career. However, the debate on Oct. 17 changed their mind, and they are now officially endorsing Rubio’s opponent Patrick Murphy.

Why? Well, here are some of the reasons they mentioned.

He is disastrously anti-LGBTQ, but wants to use the Pulse shootings to catapult his political career.

Rubio made his re-election announcement after the Pulse Nightclub shooting that killed 49 LGBTQ people and allies, mainly Latinos. Yet, he has been vehemently anti-LGBTQ rights. He has voted against marriage equality, tried to ban same-sex couples from adopting children in Florida, and he voted against discrimination protection for LGBTQ Americans in the workplace. So, how is it that he cares at all about the LGBTQ community?

He is also pretty pro-Second Amendment despite being “moved” by the Pulse Nightclub massacre.

Rubio voted against a bill that would ban all people on terrorist watch lists from gaining access to guns because it was drafted by a Democrat. He then turned around and voted in favor of a bill that would not ban people on no-fly lists unless a court ruled that they are a risk within three days of applying for the gun.

Rubio is opposed to the Affordable Healthcare Act and wants to repeal it despite it being proven to work.


The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released a lengthy and detailed study proving that the ACA was working for Americans. Not only are costs for healthcare going down, the number of people being insured are steadily rising.

“The evidence is clear when it comes to access, affordability, and quality the Affordable Care Act is working,” the HHS states.

The Miami Herald understands, as does Patrick Murphy, that climate change is something that needs to be addressed.

Rubio spent a lot of his time during his failed presidential campaign denying that climate change is real. Now, he isn’t the only politician that is denying climate change, and he isn’t the only politician in Florida denying climate change. However, scientists and science have unequivocally destroyed all the arguments put forth by climate change deniers. Not to mention that Florida is one of the states that will be hardest hit by flooding if climate change continues to get worse.

He is proud of being one of the politicians crippling the U.S. justice system by blocking a Supreme Court nominee.


“He has joined the Senate majority in the scandalous move to block any consideration of the president’s nominee for a Supreme Court vacancy,” reads part of the Miami Herald‘s scathing endorsement announcement. “He has unilaterally blocked other meritorious presidential nominations for purely political reasons, including confirmation of a judge he himself had once recommended.”

The editorial board of the newspaper even went after Rubio’s continued support of Donald Trump.

As they mention, they can’t understand how he could be supporting Trump. Not only because he is a dangerous and offensive presidential candidate, but because Rubio is sticking to the GOP nominee solely for political gain.

“Mr. Trump’s candidacy is a test of character, and Sen. Rubio is failing that test,” the Miami Herald editorial board states. “How can voters believe he’s sincere when he says he does not share Mr. Trump’s awful views on Mexicans, immigrants, Muslims, women, etc., yet — at the same time — stands by his endorsement of the New York billionaire?”

For those, and other reasons, one of Rubio’s longest allies and hometown staples is backing his opponent, Patrick Murphy.

Murphy, according to the Miami Herald, has proven that he would do all these things differently than Rubio, and those actions are something they can stand behind.
