“Everybody’s entitled to their own madness.” ?

Salma Hayek might being giving Mariah Carey a run for her money with the latest shade she dropped on Donald Trump AND, specifically, his diehard supporters.

The Mexican actress talked very candidly about her relationship with the Republican presidential frontrunner on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Hayek said that she has known Trump for a very long time, but the two haven’t crossed paths since Trump started his run for president.

But even Hayek, who has spoken against Trump in the past, concedes that not even she can talk any sense into the man. Pressed by Kimmel for more information on that topic, Hayek said everyone has their opinions and they are entitled to them but “you need to talk sense into the people who are not seeing the madness.” #SlaySalma

What’s a utility player? A player who can play several positions and fill in wherever (and whenever) he’s needed. “Yo soy como el Bugs Bunny de la pelota,” jokes Hernandez about his versatility.

And he’s kind of a maniac.

Last season, he dressed as a banana in the dugout…during a game.

Why? Well, it all began with the “rally banana.”

Last season, while the Dodgers were in the middle of a 35-inning scoreless streak, Hernandez grabbed a banana and started pointing it like a gun at opposing players. Soon, the Dodgers broke their scoring drought and Hernandez credited the banana for helping them get out of their funk. Hernandez: “I said, ‘I’m on the bench, I’ve got to help my team somehow, we’ve got to come up with something.’ So I look around and the first thing I see is a banana and I said, ‘This banana is going to be a rally banana.'”

Hernandez and his teammates began to embrace the banana.

And so did Dodger fans.

Hernandez says he had two fruit companies that sent him banana swag, including a bright yellow banana suit and a banana jacket.

So, during an extra inning game against their bitter rival — the San Francisco Giants — Hernandez was asked to put on a banana jacket by Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman.

When Hernandez told Friedman he’d be fined for wearing the jacket in the dugout, Friedman responded that he would pay the fine. “Gotta do what the boss says,” said Hernandez to Inside The Dodgers.

But Hernandez isn’t just a one-trick pony. He does booty shakes during introductions…

He rides a hoverboard in the locker room while listening to Ginuwine’s “Pony”…

And he lip syncs to Justin Bieber.

Where does Hernandez get all that energy? He said he’s had it since he was a young pelotero in Puerto Rico.

Hernandez told the TV show “Paparazzi Boricua” that his father once said Americans wouldn’t like his off-the-wall behavior. Hernandez responded that he couldn’t be anyone but himself.

He’s doing something right. Fans love his energy…

And teammates, even the ones annoyed by his behavior, appreciate it.

Teammate J.P. Howell told ESPN that Hernandez’s presence helps lighten the mood in the dugout: “As soon as you find him annoying, you find yourself laughing. That’s how it works with him.”
