Comedian DL Hughley explains why musician Cardi B is electable in the age of Trump

Published

on

Speaking to TMZ this Monday, comedian D.L. Hughley had some disparaging things to say about the US electorate, saying that since America elected a TV celebrity as president, there’s no reason why rapper Cardi B can’t win an election.

“I will put nothing past the American electorate. The only thing that you don’t need experience to do is to hold elected office in America,” Hughley said.

“When you elect a game show host as president, all hope is off,” he added.

Cardi B has expressed an interest in politics as of late. In a series of tweets from this Sunday, the rapper said that she wants to be a politician.

“I really love government even tho I don’t agree with [Government],” she wrote.

According to Hughley, he’s amazed at the lack of political experience when it comes to candidates elected to high office.

“You wouldn’t go to a doctor who didn’t have experience,” he said. “You wouldn’t let an airplane pilot fly who didn’t have experience. The reason why we’re in the situations we are in right now is … people have little [to] no experience and aren’t interested in it.”

Here is what she wrote:

Year of Rat hails easy ride for Donald Trump — but bumps for Harry and Meghan

Published

As the world prepares to welcome the Year of the Rat, feng shui masters predict a lucky year for Donald Trump, but warn Harry and Meghan's futures are less certain as they make a bid for freedom.

Both the US President and the Sussexes have begun 2020 with a bang.

The former is facing down an impeachment trial -- and seeking re-election in November -- while the latter are beginning a new chapter in Canada after consciously uncoupling from the gilded but pressured career of being a working British royal.

But if experts in the field of Chinese horoscopes are to be believed, it is the US president that will have the easier journey this year.

John Roberts caused a ‘crisis of democratic legitimacy’ — it’s ‘entirely fitting’ he has to preside over his mess: columnist

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was blasted in The Washington Post on Thursday for his culpability in creating the dynamics that resulted in President Donald Trump -- and his impeachment.

"There is justice in John Roberts being forced to preside silently over the impeachment trial of President Trump, hour after hour, day after tedious day," Dana Milbank wrote. "Roberts’s captivity is entirely fitting: He is forced to witness, with his own eyes, the mess he and his colleagues on the Supreme Court have made of the U.S. political system. As representatives of all three branches of government attend this unhappy family reunion, the living consequences of the Roberts Court’s decisions, and their corrosive effect on democracy, are plain to see."
