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

This is Steven Mnuchin. Donald Trump just named him finance chair of his presidential campaign.

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.

America Ferrera Celebrates 20th Anniversary Of Working On ‘Gotta Kick It Up’ With Sweet IG Post

It has been 20 years since America Ferrera’s dream of becoming an actor back true. She took to Instagram to reflect on the moment that her dream started to come true and it is a sweet reminder that anyone can chase their dreams.

America Ferrera shared a sweet post reflecting on the 20th anniversary of working on “Gotta Kick It Up!”

“Gotta Kick It Up!” was one of the earliest examples of Latino representation so many of us remember. The movie follows a school dance team trying to be the very best they could possibly be. The team was down on their luck but a new teacher introduces them to a different kind of music to get them going again.

After being introduced to Latin beats, the dance team is renewed. It taps into a cultural moment for the Latinas on the team and the authenticity of the music makes their performances some of the best.

While the movie meant so much to Latino children seeing their culture represented for the first time, the work was a major moment for Ferrera. In the Instagram post, she gushes over the celebrities she saw on the lot she was working on. Of course, anyone would be excited to see Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt hanging out. Yet, what stands out the most is Ferrera’s own excitement to realize that she can make money doing what she loves most.

“I wish I could go back and tell this little baby America that the next 20 years of her life will be filled with unbelievable opportunity to express her talent and plenty of challenges that will allow her to grow into a person, actress, producer, director, activist that she is very proud and grateful to be. We did it baby girl. I’m proud of us,” Ferrera reflects.

Watch the trailer for “Gotta Kick It Up!” here.

Federal Investigators Executed A Search Warrant On Rudy Giuliani’s N.Y.C. Home And This Is Just The Beginning

Federal Investigators Executed A Search Warrant On Rudy Giuliani’s N.Y.C. Home And This Is Just The Beginning

Months of investigations on Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani officially came to a head Wednesday morning.

The former New York City mayor’s dealings with Ukraine officials in 2019 have been under scrutiny for months by authorities who have been investigating allegations Giuliani lobbied for powerful Ukrainian interests. The investigations have also looked into claims that Giuliani also solicited the Ukrainian government for damaging information on President Joe Biden when he was running against Trump in the 2020 election.

There is also the matter of allegations that Giuliani attempted to find information on Biden’s son Hunter, who was part of the board of an energy company in Ukraine.

Federal investigators executed a search warrant on Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan home on Wednesday morning.

The search was part of a criminal investigation into Giuliani‘s activities with Ukraine. According to The New York Times, “Prosecutors obtained the search warrants as part of an investigation into whether Mr. Giuliani broke lobbying laws as President Trump’s personal lawyer.”

Federal agents seized cellphones and other electronic devices as part of the investigation. The search warrant took place around 6 a.m. at Mr. Giuliani’s apartment on Madison Avenue and his Park Avenue office in Manhattan.

The execution of a search warrant against the former president’s lawyer is particularly shocking.

The warrant comes as a major development in the investigation that has been ongoing for some time and examines the former- mayor’s conduct during Mr. Trump’s first impeachment trial.

“It was also a remarkable moment in Mr. Giuliani’s long arc as a public figure,” noted New York Times. “As mayor, Mr. Giuliani won national recognition for steering New York through the dark days after the Sept. 11 attacks, and earlier in his career, he led the same U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan that is investigating him now, earning a reputation as a hard-charging prosecutor who took on organized crime and corrupt politicians.”
