‘Dumbest white lady’ Laura Ingraham gets weekend-long trouncing from Black Twitter over Nipsey Hussle slur

Published

Attacks on Fox News host Laura Ingraham haven’t stopped, despite the weekend break. Twitter users of color, known as #BlackTwitter, were relentless in holding Ingraham accountable for her racism during her show last week.

“Yesterday in L.A., thousands lined the streets to say goodbye to rapper Nipsey Hussle,” a sarcastic Ingraham said with a broad grin. “Now this dear artist recently released a song called ‘FDT’ – F Donald Trump.”

The lower third of the screen proclaimed: “Nipsey Hussle’s Wholesome Song Featuring Donald Trump.”

“So is that line referring to the lowest unemployment ever?” Ingraham said, referring to the low rates of unemployment for Black Americans. The rate of unemployment began to trend down with policies put in place by the previous administration, but President Donald Trump continues to take credit.

As a fact-check, Nipsey Hussle was merely featured in the video “FDT,” it was YG who was behind the song. Ingraham appears not to know the difference between the two black men.

Ingraham quoted the chorus of “FDT,” which encourages young voters to cast ballots based on the racism within the Trump campaign.

“God Bless,” she closed.

The internet let her have it:

Trump announces he has unilaterally decided to let Putin back into the G7 Summit: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump announced on Saturday that he intends to let Russia attend the next Group of Seven summit.

Since 2014, Russia's membership in the organization has been suspending in response to Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea. That changed the name from the G8 Summit to the G7 Summit.

The announcement came from pool reporter Gabby Orr of Politico, who said Trump will also invite South Korea, Australia and India to the next summit, which he is postponing until September.

More via pooler: “‘I don’t feel that as a G7 it properly represents what’s going on in the world. It’s a very outdated group of countries,’ he said. Alyssa Farah said this is bringing together our traditional allies to talk about how to deal with the future of China.”
