Because Why Not? Here’s A Collection Of People Going To Town On Trump Piñatas

While Donald Trump has managed to avoid any real physical harm from protestors during his presidential campaign, his piñata counterpart hasn’t been so lucky. Every few days, someone else is in the news for taking out their frustrations on the candy-filled, papier-mâché look-a-like. And while we kind of feel bad for Trump’s piñata, the videos are usually hilarious, showing off people who are barely able to keep their anger in check. Here are a few of our favorites that teach you how to properly thrash a Trump piñata.

Trump was definitely in over his head here. Moving on!

If you don’t have a proper piñata stick, don’t worry. Just Sul shows how effective a rake can be.

Not to throw shade, but Trump’s hair is probably groomed with a similar rake.

If the rake fails, just stomp a few holes in your Trump piñata.

It’s nice to see people working together against a common enemy.

Be careful though, some Trump piñatas have teamed up with El Chapo for protection.

These two billionaires probably have a few things in common.

When he’s not getting the candy beaten out of him, Trump’s piñata spends time enjoying live music and getting in touch with millennials.

Work hard, play hard. That’s the piñata’s motto.

Thousands of Trump Supporters Are Left Stranded For Hours In the Freezing Cold After His Omaha Rally

Thousands of Trump Supporters Are Left Stranded For Hours In the Freezing Cold After His Omaha Rally

Thousands of Trump supporters were left stranded on an airway in the freezing cold in Omaha, Nebraska after the Trump campaign failed to organize adequate transportation for them after a rally. The MAGA supporters (many of whom were older) stood for hours in 31-degree temperatures, miles away from their cars.

According to reports on the ground, the rally attendees were waiting for buses hours after Trump already took leave on Air Force One. After waiting in confusion and uncertainty, some of the attendees decided to make the cold trek back to their cars. But others didn’t have that luxury.

According to the Omaha Police Department, seven people were transported to the hospital after the event, while thirty others were contacted by the police department for “medical reasons”. Police scanners report that some attendees were suffering from confusion and fatigue–a sign of hypothermia. Police officers who didn’t have an assignment were dispatched to the airfield to “pick up stranded people” who were “wandering in the cold.”

The rally took place at the Eppley Airfield and supporters were apparently initially brought in through the help of the Trump campaign. According to a Fox News reporter, many Trump supporters had arrived hours ahead of time for security reasons. But when it came time to get the attendees back to their cars (which were 3 miles away) the safety of their supporters became less of a priority.

The Trump campaign alleged that a traffic jam prevented buses for transporting attendees back to their cars, but that report is refuted by a local police officer who told a CNN reporter, that they “need at least 30 more buses” in order to smoothly get attendees back to their cars. It seems that lack of organization and foresight on the Trump campaign’s part is what kept his supporters from getting home safely.

It’s worth noting that this is not the first time that the Trump campaign has put the health and safety of their supporters at risk in the name of optics. The Trump campaign notoriously held an indoor rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma back in June that was attended by thousands of people. Masks were not a required, and neither was social distancing. It was at this rally that staunch Trump supporter Hermain Cain contracted COVID-19. He later passed away from complications related to the virus. It is unknown how many others were exposed to the virus at that event.

For some, the recent Omaha rally incident serves as a metaphor for how the Trump Administration treats millions of Americans who blindly support him while he fails to deliver on his false promises. Indeed, Trump has left his supporters “out in the cold” in other ways, like how he recently shelved the stimulus relief bill that would have helped millions of Americans who are on the brink of financial ruin due to COVID-19.

As Nebraska Democratic state senator Megan Hunt tweeted about the incident: “What people will do for this con man, what people have sacrificed, is so sad to me. He truly does not care about you.”

Ice Cube Catches Massive Blowback For Teaming Up With the Trump Campaign; Denies He’s Endorsing Him

Ice Cube Catches Massive Blowback For Teaming Up With the Trump Campaign; Denies He’s Endorsing Him

Ice Cube is catching lots of heat for meeting with the Trump campaign to collaborate on policy. According to Ice Cube, he met with the Trump campaign to discuss what he calls a “Contract with Black America“. His 13-point plan proposes a robust overhaul of everything from the banking industry to prison reform.

After meeting with Ice Cube, the Trump campaign adapted the Contract with Black America into what Trump has called his “Platinum Plan”. Trump’s Platinum Plan outlined vague promises of continuing “to seek immediate and generational advancement for Black Americans”. The Platinum Plan proposal also claimed Trump “works every day to advance a fair and just America for the Black Community.”

Ice Cube, for his part, has refuted reports that he approached the Trump campaign specifically. “I didn’t ‘run’ to go work with any campaign. Both campaigns contacted me. Both campaigns wanted to talk to me about the Contract with Black America,” Ice Cube said in an interview with CNN addressing the controversy.

He continued: “[The Biden] campaign said, ‘We love what you have, but let’s really dig into after the election.’ And [the Trump] campaign said ‘We love what you have, do you mind talking to us about it?’ And that’s what I did, so I didn’t ‘run’ to nobody.”

Although Ice Cube says that he would have met with any political party regardless of affiliation in order to get his plan off the ground, critics are still annoyed that he decided to team up with a man who has such a dismal track record with Black Americans.

President Donald Trump has been plagued by accusations of racism throughout his tenure as president as well as before. Not only did he hold a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma (the historical location of a racial massacre) on Juneteenth, but he recently canceled racial sensitivity training, claiming it was “racist”. More recently, Trump has refused to condemn white supremacist organizations like the Proud Boys.

Critics are also expressing concern that the Trump campaign is using Ice Cube as a ploy to entice more Black Americans into voting Republican. These concerns were made more apparent when the President’s son, Eric Trump, tweeted out a photoshopped picture of Ice Cube and 50 Cent sitting side-by-side, both wearing MAGA hats. To his credit, Ice Cube quickly condemned him.

But Ice Cube insists he isn’t endorsing Donald Trump, per se–he’s simply teaming up with whatever political party is more willing to collaborate with him.

“I’m not playing no more of these political games, we’re not part of a team…so I’m going to whoever’s in power and I’m going to speak to them about our problems, specifically,” Ice Cube said in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

It should be worth noting that Ice Cube recently took to his Instagram page to encourage his followers not to vote “unless you get something out of it”.
