The 1 Big Mistake this Politician Made

Remember the good ol’ days when politicians didn’t use social media and they’d reserve their racists comments for press conferences or government meetings? Those days are long gone.

Well, John Bradford, Republican legislator from Kansas, didn’t actually say anything, he shared this meme, which shows a man in a sombrero, a deformed President and celebrates the ending of Obama’s presidency. Of course, incredibly offensive to both Mexicans and President Obama.

What’s worse is that he didn’t think anything of it and only deleted it two days later, after receiving criticism from his Democrat colleagues: “Kansans should not have to tolerate this type of bigoted mentality from anyone, especially an elected official,” said Melody McCray-Miller, Kansas Democratic Party’s vice chairwoman.

To that, Bradford said: “I did not create the image, but I did share it, which was in bad taste. I regret that decision.”

Listen, we all make mistakes with social media, but the old adage still applies, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all share.”

Chamillionaire Got Bashed For Helping Out A Mexican Family And This Is What He Responded With

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, 39-year-old father and husband Jorge Garcia was deported back to Mexico. A video capturing the moment when Garcia hugs his family goodbye at the airport went viral and eventually came to the attention of rapper Chamillionaire.

After learning about the family’s circumstances, Chamillionaire took matters into his own hands and contacted Garcia’s wife, Cindy. Some people were happy and proud that the rapper was helping an immigrant family in need. However, not everyone responded positively.

Some people didn’t understand why, as a black man, Chamillionaire was helping a Mexican family. Many came into his comments saying Mexicans have a long history of anti-black behavior, and as a result the rapper shouldn’t go out of his way to help the Garcias.

After the negative feedback Chamillionaire received, he posted a public video on Instagram, explaining why he’s decided to help this Mexican immigrant family.

In the video Chamillionaire says, “I know a lot of ya’ll have been misled to believe the toxic narrative that Mexicans are doing this and Mexicans are doing that, like they aren’t valuable contributors to our economy and our society.”

Contrary to this “toxic narrative,” Chamillionaire went on to list ways Mexican people have helped his music career flourish over time, including the two Mexican producers on one of his biggest hits, “Ridin’ Dirty” and his manager who took the song to the top of the charts. The comments sections in the six videos he’s posted about the situation have been full of back-and-forth discourse on the subject.

Even though Chamillionaire initially wanted to reach out to Garcia’s family in private, having the news go public raised awareness about the case.

Thanks to the story, a GoFundMe Page was set up to help Garcia and his family. With this money being raised, Cindy will have the financial help she needs to pay for all of the legal funds necessary to fix her husband’s immigration status.

As a child of immigrant parents himself, Chamillionaire empathizes with the Garcias and hopes more people will as well.

After all of the feedback Chamillionaire received, these were his final thoughts:

In response to the videos, many agreed that it was okay for him to be helping others as long as he was also helping his own, to which he replied, “A brother been helping. A brother been woke.”

He ends the video with this final thought: “Don’t let evil agendas turn us against each other.”

The inauguration is here, folks, which means it’s time to say goodbye to Barack Obama and say hello to our newly elected president, Donald Trump. Here’s the gist of how people on Twitter and Instagram really feel about this historic event…

Some people feel like this girl from the famous Dr. Phil episode:


“Catch me outside, how ’bout dat?!”

While others can describe their feels toward the inauguration with a single word:


*clinging onto Obama’s ankles*

Yep, there’s so much despair that people on Twitter are coming up with inauguration drinking games in order to cope with their emotions.


Goodbye Obama and liver!

And some of these games have a few more detailed rules than others.


Cheers, America.

Other games don’t involve drinks.

What would you rather do?

Because Trump is dying for more airtime, people have decided they won’t give him the pleasure ?.


*unplugs TV*

Some people admit they wouldn’t go even if tickets were free.??


Even if Trump paid them.

Others would love a chance to attend.


Time to act like Kanye and interrupt Trump.

People on twitter are also joking about how bad the weather is going to be during the inauguration.


Thank you, baby Jesus.

Which is why people on Instagram are sharing this 7-day forecast meme.

Now that Obama’s term as president is ending, some people can’t help but reminisce about his inauguration.


So many emotions!

And he will be missed by many.
