Marco Rubio: YouTube Stars & Selfie Sticks are Not a Good Look for Obama

Marco Rubio says he wants to bring a little class to the White House. During a recent appearance on Fox News, the Republican presidential candidate weighed in on Donald Trump and fired shots at President Obama for lacking class. When asked about Trump, Rubio maintained that Trump was bringing up valid issues, but not conducting himself with class. That’s when Rubio took aim at Obama:

“We already have a president now that has no class. I mean, we have a president now that does selfie-stick videos, that invites YouTube stars there – people who eat cereal out of a bathtub – he goes on comedy shows to talk about something as serious as Iran. The list goes on and on.”

People who eat cereal out of a bathtub?

Rubio was referring to Glozell Green, one of three YouTube stars who were selected to interview President Obama in January. The interview was was organized by the Obama Administration to reach out to young voters. To date, it has more than three million views on YouTube.

And yes, GloZell did eat cereal out of a bathtub once…

But not during her interview with President Obama.

What’s the deal with the selfie stick?

Rubio was referring to “Things everybody does but doesn’t talk about,” a BuzzFeed video featuring President Obama doing everyday things – things like using a selfie stick. President Obama appeared in the video in an effort to give Obamacare more exposure. The video has more than 54 million views on Facebook.

Apparently, Marco Rubio believes Obama’s strategy to reach out to young people has led Obama to put himself in “classless” situations.

Earlier this year, Amy Brundage, deputy communications director at the White House, told the Washington Post that Obama can’t ignore social media: “Our consideration is these platforms just reach so many people, we can’t not play in that space.”

Classless or creative? What do you think about President Obama reaching out to YouTube stars and playing with selfie sticks? Tell us in the comments below.

J Balvin Gets Hot As He Chows Down On Fiery Hot Wings And Spills The Tea On All Things Balvin

J Balvin Gets Hot As He Chows Down On Fiery Hot Wings And Spills The Tea On All Things Balvin

The Prince of Reggaeton and one of the world’s most-streamed artists on both Spotify and YouTube joined the host of First We Feast for a little dish session on all things Balvin. Aside from the joys of watching Balvin devour entirely too spicy foods and salsas, we learn so much about the Colombian artist – and get to meet his dog Enzo.

J Balvin devours spicy AF wings and spills some tea in a new episode of First We Feast. 

Balvin shares how he used to be his own manager and even pretended that he was a totally separate person from J Balvin – Jose. In conversations with record labels and radio stations, he’d hype up J Balvin (as any good manager should do) and would tell those interested in booking the artist that he’d have to check in with him and make sure that his schedule would allow it. 

We learn tons of new things about the Prince of Reggaeton. 

Like apparently his first stage name was nearly Scotch Bonnet, which is a pretty amazing revelation considering it comes during a segment while he piles some Scotch Bonnet hot sauce on chicken. For those of you who don’t know, Scotch Bonnets are one of the world’s hottest chili peppers. Balvin says that his friend, rapper Fat Al, said that he should have a spicy name but Scotch Bonnet never stuck. 

And he shares why he thinks that reggaeton is outpacing the rest of the music industry.

J Balvin credits the meteoric rise of reggaeton thanks to its feel good vibes and its emotional value. He loves to make people vibe and feel something with his music.  He also gives credit where credit is due, pointing out how there are so many artists before him who have paved the way for his success.

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ted Cruz are at it again on Twitter. This time it’s about immigration policy. After recently traveling to the US-Mexican border to underline the recent rise in immigration, Cruz accused AOC of pushing for a “full open borders” policy.

And of course, AOC got him with some solid zingers.

AOC in turn hit back at Cruz for recently fleeing his home state of Texas during its power grid collapse to vacation in Cancún.

In response to Cruz’s attack, AOC suggested Mexico avoid allowing Cruz in the next time he attempts to vacation there. She also called on him to resign from office for his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff.”

Ocasio-Cortez accused Republicans of hypocritically attacking the current administration’s detention of migrant children at the border after they supported President Donald Trump’s policy of separating migrant parents from their children.

Currently, Democrats like AOC are calling on Biden to impliment more liberal immigration policies.

Republicans have strongly expressed their dislike for the recent rise in migrants which has come as a result of Biden’s reversal of Trump’s most rigid border policies.

AOC is currently a co-sponsor of the Roadmap to Freedom resolution. The resolution calls on the Federal Government to develop and implement a Roadmap to Freedom “in order to overhaul the outdated immigration system in the United States that has gone without significant reform for decades, and to relieve the great human impact an unjust system bears on communities around the country.”
