This Woman’s Tweet About Cleaning Trump’s Star Out Of Respect Inspired Some Great Twitter Meme Gold

MaKenna Greenwald recently caused a buzz on social media when she posted photos of herself cleaning up President Trump’s perpetually defaced star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In her caption, the 20-year-old student from the University of Wyoming used #RaisedRight to show her respect for President Trump. Twitter users did what Twitter users do and started their own meme war centered around #RaisedRight. Here’s what went down.

A University of Wyoming student took time during her Los Angeles visit to clean up President Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star.

“Stopped to clean @realDonaldTrump Hollywood Star,” Greenwald wrote in her tweet. “Nothing but respect for MY president. #RaisedRight.”

Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star has been defaced several times since he announced he would run for president. While Greenwald cleaned it up, it is probably only a matter of time until it gets defaced again.

Of course, people just had to get on the #RaisedRight bandwagon, showing their respect to those they consider their president, like Britney Spears.

? ?

And the other ’90s pop music diva, Christina Aguilera.

#ICONIC

Even President Josiah Bartlet got a little attention during the #RaisedRight phenomenon.

President Josiah Bartlet, for those who don’t know, was the name of Martin Sheen’s president character on “The West Wing.”

Of course, Mr. Worldwide got a shout out.

#DONE

Things did get a little awkward at JLo’s star, but it was all in good fun.

That sound you hear is the sound of mamis and abuelitas everywhere screaming in distress at this image. Imagine trying to do this in front of your abuelita.

Then, it spread to include videos of presidential hopefuls like Cardi B.

“If I was elected president of the United States, I would allow food stamps to get McDonald’s,” Cardi B says in the video. “Because that is so annoying that you can only buy food from the store and seafood with food stamps.”

Just When You Thought It Couldn’t Get Worse: 3-Year-Old Was Told To Pick Which Parent To Be Separated From

Just When You Thought It Couldn’t Get Worse: 3-Year-Old Was Told To Pick Which Parent To Be Separated From

Mamamia Author

This year has seen so much of what we would have never even imagined just a little over four years ago. Thanks to the strict and cruel policies under our current presidential administration, we’ve seen families separated from their underaged children at border stops, kids held in cages and women sexually assaulted and harassed by officers of the United States government. Xenophobia and racism are on the extreme uptick and just when you think we couldn’t stoop any lower as a country, a new report sets a new bar.

Sadly, the latest low involves a child that is just 3-years-old.

Parents from Honduras have recently accused an agent at a Border Patrol holding facility of asking their 3-year-old daughter to decide which one would be deported.

In a recent interview with NPR, a woman by the name of Tania said that she and her husband, who share three children together, experienced the bizarre abuse of their child in a holding facility in El Paso Texas. While detained, an agent told the family, which is from Honduras, that one of the parents would be sent to Mexico while the other would be kept in the United States with their three children. The two parents also have a 9-year-old daughter and a 6-year-old son.

“The agent asked her who she wanted to go with, mom or dad,” Tania told NPR through an interpreter. “And the girl, because she is more attached to me, she said mom. But when they started to take [my husband] away, the girl started to cry. The officer said, ‘You said [you want to go] with mom.'”

Tania says that she and her husband spent last week attempting to make deals with Border Patrol so that their family would not be separated.

Tania and her husband, Joseph, were working with a doctor who examined the 3-year-old, named Sofi, who had been given the burden of the harsh decision. The parents say that they pleaded with agents to not separate the family.

According to NPR Tania and her family came to the U.S. after they witnessed the murder of her mother. The news outlet reported last week that the family was sent back to Juárez, Mexico after crossing into El Paso in April and became part of the Trump administration program called Migrant Protection Protocols, which is also known as “remain in Mexico” and requires Central American migrants to wait in northern Mexico cities while their immigration cases are sorted out by the courts. More often than not, these cities are among the most dangerous in the country.

On top of everything, Sofi has an extreme heart condition.

According to NPR, Linda Rivas, the family’s lawyer and an employee of  Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center presented evidence from a Mexican health clinic that Sofi had suffered a heart attack. Stunned by the revelation Immigration Judge Nathan Herbert said that he didn’t have the authority to remove the family from MPP. However, he did ask the Department of Homeland Security lawyer to consider of Rivas’ evidence.

According to NPR, Sofi was examined by a doctor last week. The doctor told Border Patrol agents that she had had a serious heart condition and needed to stay in the country.

Tania told NPR that the agents “spoke to me at around 3 or 3:30 p.m., and they told me: ‘Sign here, because we are giving you and your children permission.’ And I said, ‘I came with the children’s father,’ and he said, ‘Not him. Only you and your children.’ And the doctor said it’s important for the family to stay [together], and even the doctor said ‘They entered as a family and they have to leave as a family.'”

According to the report, the agent had already made up their mind about the separation and it was then that Sofi was asked which parent she wanted to go with. According to Tania, the doctor who examined Sofi told her not to allow the agent to ask the little girl to make the decision, “because they don’t have the right to ask a minor.”

Eventually, the doctor was able to make a case for the family to be kept together to another agent. Fortunately, the family was released last Friday, together, to an El Paso migrant shelter.

An Argument Escalated When One Woman Tried To Use The Other’s Immigration Status As A Threat

An Argument Escalated When One Woman Tried To Use The Other’s Immigration Status As A Threat

An undocumented mother posted a video on Twitter of an argument she was in with her ex’s new girlfriend. The video starts with a woman yelling at the camera saying, “If anything, you should be afraid to call the cops because I’m not the immigrant here.” With that, the argument just kind of took off and Twitter is split in their opinions.

Dania Jaramillo posted a 46-second long video of an argument with her ex’s new girlfriend and it starts on a very uncomfortable note.

The woman is heard implying to Jaramillo that she shouldn’t call the cops because of her immigration status. This threat is one often used by people to keep undocumented people afraid of reporting crimes and harassment. In fact, there are studies that show undocumented communities not reporting crimes for fear of being arrested and harassed by police.

The woman then continues to argue with Jaramillo, who says she shouldn’t be surprised that people know of her since she is coming into their community.

“Umm, b*tch, I’ve been in your community,” she tells Jaramillo. “This ain’t yours. Is this yours? No. This is free land, isn’t it? Because, I was born here so I know that all this land is mine.”

Jaramillo gave all of the people on Twitter the background info on the dispute.

The man in the glasses is her ex. According to several tweets, he has had violence issues in the past so Jaramillo’s husband, the man without glasses was outside in case he needed to step in.

Some people went straight for the woman in the video.

Honestly, we all know someone with an accent. Her’s is one that we all remember from our lives. Whether it is a family member or friend, we all know someone who speaks like she does.

People also had an issue with her claiming that all of the land was hers because she was born here.

Like, private property laws are a thing. That being said, the land isn’t inherently yours just because you were “born here.” You might be able to own some land but you don’t just get to say that all the land is your land because you are born in the U.S.

The ex is heard telling Jaramillo that they would be seeing each other in court so some offered her legal advice.

According to tweets by Jaramillo, they are still battling out custody. It is always best to make sure your legal advice is coming from someone in the legal field. However, videos make good evidence if you find yourself trying to make a case of harassment.

The woman in the video did make her Instagram private but that hasn’t stopped people from sharing what she is posting.

While her Instagram is private, the woman wants to get the last word. According to the post, Jaramillo was gossiping about the woman and that is what incited the argument.

The woman did have some defenders.

They are arguing that she wasn’t being xenophobic. Xenophobia is defined as “dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries,” according to Merriam-Webster.

For her defenders, she is just hitting below the belt.

What do you think about the argument between the two women? Do you think this was xenophobic?
