Hollywood singer Joy Villa, known lately for her pro-Trump appearances at the Grammy Awards each year, did it again this year with a twist: she wore a barbed wire “Trump wall” to the red carpet in support of border security and legal immigration. “This is the wall,” said Villa, holding a red “Make America Great Again” purse and pointing to her silver steel-colored dress. “I believe in building a wall to protect our southern border, not to keep people out but to protect citizens of our country.” Villa said she supports President Donald Trump‘s views on immigration, which she believes are often wrongly associated with racism and xenophobia. “I’m part-Latina, I’m black,” she added, saying the dress was her way of Continue reading "Pro-Trump Singer Joy Villa Arrives at Grammys With Barbed Wire ‘Build The Wall’ Dress"

Former Attorney General Eric Holder thinks President Donald Trump‘s MAGA slogan “is rooted in fear.” Holder’s remarks came during the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington DC on Saturday. “Every time I hear that phrase I wonder when exactly do they have in mind?… What decade? What year?” Holder, who served in the Obama administration, said. He added: “Certainly it was not when people were enslaved. Certainly, it was not when segregation was the law of the land. Certainly, it was not when women were disenfranchised. Certainly, it was not when the LGBT community was routinely stigmatized.” He continued on, “This sort of thinking, this ‘Make America Great’ mindset is not only flawed, it’s rooted in fear. And it favors an imagined past over a realistic future.” In addition to taking aim at Trump’s MAGA slogan, Holder also warned, “The age Continue reading "Eric Holder Calls Trump’s MAGA Slogan ‘Rooted in Fear’"

The singer who experienced her 15 minutes of fame last year by hitting the red carpet in a pro-Trump outfit appears to be trying to extend her time under the spotlight, as Joy Villa arrived at the 60th Grammy Awards in an anti-abortion dress. Villa’s get-up included a stark white dress with a fetus surrounded by a rainbow painted on it. Additionally, she carried along a white handbag with the words “CHOOSE LIFE” blasted across it — just in case anyone was still unaware of her opinion on abortion. In a statement to Fox News — which is the network the singer has frequently appeared on — Continue reading "Pro-Trump Singer Joy Villa Wears Anti-Abortion Dress to Grammys"

Transgender rights advo person Caitlyn Jenner was seen driving her car yesterday wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, not even two weeks after President Donald Trump tried to ban transgender individuals from the military. Twitter was set ablaze the morning of July 26, when Trump posted a three-tweet thread to tell the world that he thought transgender individuals should not serve in the military because of their “tremendous medical costs” and the “disruption” they cause. Among the strong Twitter reactions against Trump was out-spoken Trump supporter Jenner, who said “every American should be outraged” and linked to her full statement against Trump’s statement. The latest photo, however, suggests she is willing to let bygones be bygones — Twitter was not happy Continue reading "Caitlyn Jenner Was Spotted Wearing a MAGA Hat — And Twitter Is Going in Hard"

President Trump Celebrates July Fourth by Tweeting ‘Make America Great Again’ Choral Performance

President Trump opened his day observing American independence by tweeting a choral symphonic rendition of his campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.” The video was captured at a recent performance for President Trump at the Kennedy Center and was set in front of an enormous American flag in case anyone didn’t get the lyrics. The jingoistic nationalistic song was composed by Pastor Gary Moore, from First Baptist Church of Dallas and was sung by a Baptist choir this past weekend.

In a recent New York Times interview, Erizku shared that he is presenting a “defiantly anti-Trump” show at London’s Ben Brown Fine Arts. It opens April 20 and is titled “Make America Great Again.” The Times reported that the MAGA show will be his most political to date.

‘I See it as a Symbol of Hate’: Mexicans Tell Mediate What They Think of Trump’s MAGA Hats

In a post we published yesterday, we highlighted conversations Mediaite’s Travis Irvine had with a number of Mexican residents he ran into while observing International Women’s Day demonstrations in Mexico City. In that video, he asked a number of folks to respond to President Donald Trump’s saying Mexico had some “bad hombres.”

In this newest clip, Irvine presents Trump’s iconic ‘Make America Great Again’ red baseball cap to Mexicans and asks them to weigh in with their thoughts. And most of them had some very strong opinions indeed.

“I don’t know, I see it as a symbol of hate and a symbol of wrongdoing,” one young woman told Irvine. “It’s gross…take it away from me!”

Others stated that they felt the hat was “ridiculous,” it “was too red,” and that “America was greater before he was a president.”

Trump Already Has a 2020 Re-Election Slogan…And It’s Straight Out of The Purge


This post is by Ken Meyer from Mediaite

In a recent interview, Donald Trump said he is so confident in his upcoming presidency, that he’s already thought up a slogan to replace “Make America Great Again” when he’s up for re-election in four years. However, Trump’s new idea isn’t exactly original, and more than that, the source material he might have lifted it from actually seems pretty ominous. The mogul spoke with Washington Post, where he talked about how he came up with the message he used to highlight his presidential campaign. During this meeting, Trump talked about how he loved his slogan so much that he called for his lawyer and told him to make plans to reinvent it:
“Will you trademark and register, if you would, if you like it — I think I like it, right? Do this: ‘Keep America Great,’ with an exclamation point.”
The thing is, “Keep America Great” was used Continue reading "Trump Already Has a 2020 Re-Election Slogan…And It’s Straight Out of The Purge"

Trump Reveals the Aha Moment He Thought Of — and Trademarked — ‘Make America Great Again’

Screen Shot 2017-01-18 at 9.19.13 AMThe long shot candidacy of Donald Trump to top the ranks of the Republican elite — and eventually, the world — began with a simple catchy phrase: “Make America Great Again,” appropriately emblazoned on hats, shirts, bumper stickers, and any other kitchy items you could slap a price tag onto. And now, in an interview with The Washington Post, the President-elect of the United States reveals the genesis behind the phrase that took the nation by storm. Karem Tumulty reported Wednesday that Trump first thought of the phrase the day after Mitt Romney lost in his bid for the White House against the incumbent President Barack Obama. While the GOP was in disarray, writes Tumulty, “[O]n the 26th floor of a golden Manhattan tower that bears his name, Trump was coming to the conclusion that his own moment was at hand.” He considered other branding options Continue reading "Trump Reveals the Aha Moment He Thought Of — and Trademarked — ‘Make America Great Again’"

In a Monday tweet, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer inadvertently urged his followers not to “Make America Great Again.” Democrats have recently adopted the hashtag #MakeAmericaSickAgain, a mockery of the popular Donald Trump hashtag #MakeAmericaGreatAgain and Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare. Schumer meant to tweet out the Democratic hashtag, and eventually did. But in a now-deleted tweet, the New York Senator screwed up and ended up tweeting “Don’t #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.” c1xbckzwqaan65h Oops.

This evening, Roginsky took notice of a Mediaite piece which reported on an Instagram photo of Baldwin wearing a Russian lampoon of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hats.
While various outlets picked up on how Baldwin’s hat has all the standard qualities of Trump’s hats, Roginsky pointed out that the translation wasn’t quite correct.

Saturday Night Live might not be airing a new episode tonight, but that’s not stopping Alec Baldwin from using his weekend to mess with Donald Trump. Baldwin and Trump have made their mutual dislike perfectly clear as the actor continues to mock and impersonate the president-elect on NBC. On Friday, Baldwin decided to smack Trump’s coziness with Vladimir Putin by wearing a Russian version of the mogul’s “Make America Great Again” hat.
A declassified intelligence report from Friday reads that multiple agencies have concluded that the Kremlin ordered a campaign to hack political networks and influence the election to Trump’s advantage. Trump had a briefing about this yesterday, after which, he said that Russia’s actions “had no effect on the outcome of the election.” Earlier today, Trump seemed to blame the Democratic National Committee Continue reading "Alec Baldwin Trolls Trump With a Russian ‘Make America Great Again’ Hat"

Dear Trump Fans, It Looks Like You’ll Have a Replacement For Your MAGA Hats Soon

Now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States, it appears he is now looking for a more presidential headgear to replace his campaign mainstay of ‘Make America Great Again’ baseball caps. While he spent the holiday weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort, Trump was spotted wearing a new hat that appeared to reference his soon-to-be status as the 45th President while showing USA in large font on the front. The New York Post felt Trump’s new cap was a response to the current recount efforts being initiated by Green Party candidate Jill Stein and joined by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Essentially, this is him asserting his claim to the White House.
Donald Tramp swapped his “Make America Great Again” hat on Sunday for some new presidential headgear — proudly sporting another Continue reading "Dear Trump Fans, It Looks Like You’ll Have a Replacement For Your MAGA Hats Soon"

However, despite its limited availability, more than 1,000 people have left customer reviews on the product’s page, and some are just as vicious and hysterical as you would imagine.screen-shot-2016-11-24-at-9-44-34-am screen-shot-2016-11-24-at-9-44-50-am screen-shot-2016-11-24-at-9-48-11-am This clever little comment from reviewer “Tacitus Lector” plays on the popular vote controversy, tying the ornament to the fact that more people instead wanted, “a sedate, classy ornament from a shop

corey-cataldoeditedWhile there has been a lot of attention on the number of incidents of harassment and intimidation done in the name of Donald Trump following his election victory, there have also been instances of his voters getting attacked for supporting the President-elect. Speaking to ABC7 News, Bronx native Corey Cataldo explained how he was attacked and choked on a New York City subway last week over his ‘Make America Great Again’ baseball cap. According to Cataldo, he was asked by another passenger if we was a Trump supporter. He thought the passenger was going to say “me too,” because he had gotten that a lot while wearing the hat, but instead the man placed his hands around his neck. He also noted that instead of receiving help, another person joined in. “I try to fight him off, and another gentleman comes over, pretends like he’s going to help me Continue reading "Man Wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ Hat Attacked and Choked on New York Subway"

screen-shot-2016-10-22-at-11-59-49-pmTom Hanks decided to make America great again by playing a Donald Trump supporter during tonight’s “Black Jeopardy” sketch on Saturday Night Live. The Trump campaign hasn’t exactly the most hospitable campaign for African-Americans in this country; nonetheless, Hanks played a man named “Doug” as he took a whack at the night’s subjects. Surprisingly, “Doug” did pretty well and got along with his competition, even if he was reluctant to shake hands with Kenan Thompson at first.
