‘WTF is happening?’: Internet loses it over Trump and Kanye’s revived bromance

Published

on

Nearly a year-and-a-half after their infamous meeting of the minds at Trump Tower following the 2016 presidential election, rapper Kanye West and President Donald Trump appear to have reunited following a series of tweets in which the artist openly endorsed the president. Twitter, as is their custom, is completely losing it as West goes full MAGA.

One user mused that Trump-supporting West has “gotta be a clone” of the man who criticized then-President George W. Bush after Hurricane Katrina for not caring about black people.

BuzzFeed News’ Darren Sands, meanwhile, found a surprising similarity between the two men: that they were both “humiliated in public by Barack Obama” and don’t appear to have “recovered” from it.

Keith Boykin, a former Obama White House staffer and current CNN commentator, noted that Trump’s use of West’s views, which are “non-representative” of African Americans as a group, is part of “a long history dating back to slavery” and that he’s doing so “to justify the policies of white supremacy.”

Denver cops busted for doing drive-by shootings of anti-police brutality protesters

Published

on

In a video posted to Twitter, a young Denver man protesting the killing of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minnesota police officers, found himself on the receiving end of an attack by police himself as he filmed them riding on the side of a truck -- only to have his phone hit by a fired police projectile while still in his hand.

According to Rachelle D'nae, a staff writer at Slate, her brother went to the Denver protest and was filming the officers when the incident occurred.

"My older brother went to a protest in Denver last night. as the police were leaving, one of them shot him with a pepper pellet that smashed the back of his phone and exploded in his face. they were ~30 feet from each other and it looks like the officer aimed directly at his face," she wrote before adding in a second tweet, "when my brother told me he was going I prepared for the worst. I made sure he had my number memorized so I could bail him out if I needed to and I sat up until he made it home, trying not to cry as he told me he had been tear-gassed."

Published

on

President Donald Trump is under fire Sunday after the White House announced he will not be seen today despite five days and nights of protests in more than 75 cities across the country and governors in at least ten states activating the National Guard.

Possibly more than at any time during his three-and-a-half year old administration Trump is taking tremendous criticism for how he has managed the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and for his handling of the protests against the killing by police of George Floyd.
