Lindsey Graham Just Confirmed Every Immigrant’s Nightmare About Trump On “The Daily Show”

“If Trump wins your days are numbered, pal!”

Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Senator and former presidential hopeful who never really had a chance, went on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” to talk about his Ted Cruz endorsement. Yes, Graham, who at one point boasted that you could murder Ted Cruz and get away with it (it’s in the video), is endorsing the Canadian-born Texas Senator because it’s an easier, bitter pill to swallow than if Donald Trump wins.

The whole interview is well worth your time, but the most jarring/eye-opening portion of the interview was Graham warning Noah, an immigrant from South Africa, in that joking-but-no-seriously manner that if Trump wins, he should pack his bags. For all intents and purposes, Graham’s warning should apply to the more than 41.3 million immigrants in this country (11.5 million of which are undocumented).

That Graham would say this on national television is quite sobering and, in some weird way, kind of funny because the South Carolina Senator is talking with the candidness of a person who’s drunk and went to the ATM and saw that he had a balance of zero f*cks.

So there you have it, folks. When a Republican from South Carolina says that you should be scared of someone from his own party, you should take that advice at face value.

Ricky Martin Says That It Is ‘Super Sad’ For Him To See Latinos Voting for Donald Trump

Ricky Martin says when it comes to the Latino support of Joe Biden for president, voters bang. He also says those who are voting for Donald Trump completely bomb.

In an interview with The Big Ticket podcast, the “Livin La Vida Loca” singer highlighted the importance of voter turnout and laid out his reasons for giving former Vice President Joe Biden his own vote.

Speaking to The Big Ticket, Martin underlined his efforts to see change this year.

“I’ve been supporting Biden forever,” the singer shared on the podcast. “I think he is the only option we have and he is great. He has been in politics all his life. This is the moment. We all need to get together and be loud about the course of this nation.” For Martin, it seems that the backing of Biden by the Latino community is especially important and seeing anything less is something he truly cannot understand. Martin went so far as to highlight his disbelief in seeing Wanda Vázquez, the current governor of Puerto Rico, endorsing Trump this year.

“Who is that? Next!” he exclaimed during the podcast. “She doesn’t even exist. She wasn’t even elected by the people. She’s not part of this conversation.”

Trump went onto call Latinos in the United States who support Trump “really scary.”

When asked about Latinos in the United States who support Trump, Martin said it’s “really scary” to see but he remains positive that the majority of Latinos will vote him out of office.

“It’s really scary,” he said, before commenting that he does think that the majority of Latinos will vote for Biden. “It’s super sad. I think. Trumpeters make a lot of noise. And it’s scary to see their enthusiasm but us, we’re doing what’s right, the right way and we’ll see what happens in November. But I’m very optimistic.”

“I am a Latino, gay, married to an Arab living in Trump’s America,” he said about his husband Jwan Yosef, a Syrian-born, Swedish painter Marin married in 2017. “We check all the boxes.”

Martin’s comments come at a time when Trump continues to receive support from Cubans in Florida.

The battleground state has seen Cuban Americans, who often vote Republican, make last-ditch efforts to reelect Trump. “Florida’s Cuban American voters remain a bright spot in Trump’s effort to retain his winning coalition from 2016,” ABC reported. “Polls show his strong support from these key voters may even be growing to include the younger Cuban Americans that Democrats once considered their best hope of breaking the GOP’s hold. For Trump, that support could prove essential in a tight race in a state he must win to beat Democratic challenger Joe Biden.”

Referring to the increase in early voters this year, Martin says he’s happy to see voters turning out. “For that, I’m extremely happy,” he explained. “We’ve had plans of if we might leave the country. No, we have to stay here and fight for our rights and for what we believe.”

You can check out Martin’s full interview with The Big Ticket on Nov. 3.

Crowd Boos President Trump As She Visits Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Casket At Supreme Court

Things That Matter

Crowd Boos President Trump As She Visits Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Casket At Supreme Court

President and Melania Trump visited the Supreme Court to pay respects to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As the president and first lady stood by the casket, protesters could be heard booing and chanting against the president.

President Donald Trump visited Ruth Bader Ginsburg casket at the Supreme Court and things got loud.

A crowd of people gathered in front of the Supreme COurt booed the president as he stood behind the casket. The boos turned to chants of “vote him out” that grew louder until the president left the scene. Some were also heard chating “honor her wish” in memory of Justice Ginsburg’s wish not to be replaced until a new president is elected.

Justice Ginsburg’s death has electrified the political debate dividing the nation.

Justice Ginsburg was a pop culture icon who was beloved by the American people. She stood for progress and advancing the civil rights of all communities. Her death has mobilized Democrats with record-breaking donations to Democrats in the days following her death.

President Trump has announced that he is going to be announcing a nominee to fill the seat as soon as possible.

President Trump is bulldozing ahead by announcing that he would pick a nominee four days after Justice Ginsburg’s death. Democratic and some Republican lawmakers have called on the Senate to reconsider voting for a nominee before the election.

Political pundits are resurfacing videos of Republican Senators in 2016 denying President Obama’s Supreme Court because it was an election year. Senator Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, was the one in 2016 to deny the Obama administration a Supreme Court pick citing the election year. In 2020, the Republican-led Senate has changed the rules.

Some politicians, like Senator Lindsey Graham, are facing backlash because of their flip-flopping.

Senator Graham is the chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary and will be running the confirmation hearing of the next Supreme Court nominee. Sen. Graham is facing a very tight race for re-election in South Carolina against Jaime Harrison. Sen. Graham’s seat, which is a Republican stronghold, is in jeopardy as Harrison continues his campaign.

Republicans and Democrats are both watching the Senate closely to see what will happen.

The Supreme Court vacancy has become a flashpoint in the 2020 election cycle. Both parties are fundraising on the issue of changing the court for decades to come.
