Yep, There’s A Donald Trump Connection To ‘Suicide Squad’

It is this man’s job to raise as much money as possible for Donald Trump and the Republican Party. Mnuchin recently told Bloomberg that his operation expects to raise $1 billion.

Mnuchin also happens to be one of the executive producers of “Suicide Squad,” DC Comics’s latest cinematic effort.

In other words, someone who is raising a lot of money so that Donald Trump can become president would financially benefit if “Suicide Squad” makes a lot of money.

If a film hopes to be successful at the box office, it needs to capture the Latino audience. Latinos go to the movies. A LOT.

“Hispanics are far and away the most important consumer at our cinemas,” National Association of Theatre Owners CEO John Fithian has said.

The people behind “Suicide Squad” know this. That’s why they send the film’s stars to appear on shows like Univision’s “Despierta America.”

To be clear, this isn’t meant to tell you that you shouldn’t see “Suicide Squad.” You’re grown-ass people capable of making your own choices.

You love superhero movies, which means that your mind is pretty much made up on this matter. And that’s OK. It doesn’t make you a bad person. You want to see Margot Robbie play Harley Quinn. You’re curious to see how Jared Leto does as the Joker, and how it compares to Heath Ledger’s and/or Jack Nicholson’s performances. You’re probably mildly annoyed about Diablo, the cholo character that *SPOILER ALERT* accidentally kills his wife and kid because he can’t control his anger.

But, at the end of the day, it doesn’t change the fact that someone who wants Donald Trump to be president will likely make money off of you.

This doesn’t mean that you paying money to go see “Suicide Squad” is the same as endorsing Donald Trump, nor does it mean that the Trump campaign will actually be getting your money. It’s just stating this very simple truth: Steven Mnuchin, who will raise millions and millions of dollars to try to elect a candidate who secured the Republican nomination by saying racist things, could make money if “Suicide Squad” does well at the box office.

Hopefully it’s worth it.

Salma Hayek Was Savage AF About Donald Trump In This Interview

The Late Late Show with James Corden / YouTube

Salma Hayek was on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” recently and, of course, the conversation turned to Donald Trump. You’re probably thinking, “Oh great. Another interview with Trump at the center.” Wait! This is probably the most savage reading of Trump this year. Not only did Hayek drag him to hell and back, she ended her interview by reading him to filth! Check it out.

It starts with James Corden asking Salma Hayek about this Donald Trump piñata photo.


“We had a party and somebody brought the piñata as a gift, and there was a huge line immediately,” Hayek told Corden. “Everybody was so excited and everybody was so disappointed because the first person up went crazy on it until they destroyed it completely.”

But she did have one problem with the piñata…

Then, Corden comes through and asks Hayek if there is anything that Trump has said that she agrees with.

That look, tho! ?

But then, she thinks of the one thing he has said that she does agree with.

She then shares a story Trump “wrote” about when he was in first grade, he punched his music teacher because he didn’t believe that his teacher knew anything about music. According to Hayek, Trump then references that same incident later in the book and points out that he said he still felt like that first grade kid who punched his music teacher.

“I agree with him that we have a…”

She is basically the world’s first professional Trump dragger.

Then she gave Trump her own recommended reading, you know, since he wants to be president and everything.
