Karma Is A Real….

It’s that time again! Time to discuss our top hot messes.

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Donald Trump for having bad karma

Last week marked a rather embarrassing moment for the Trump administration as they failed to repeal Obama’s Affordable Care Act. Not only did they fail to overhaul the ACA, but they also failed to do it with a Republican Congress. “Trumpcare” lacked so much support from Republicans that Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, had to pull the bill before even bringing it to the House floor for formal consideration. #Yikes

In Major Defeat for Trump, Push to Repeal Health Law Fails

Personally, I think that this hot messness should serve as a reminder to everyone that karma is real. After falsely accusing Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower and arguing various other “alternative facts,” Trump finally received the slap in the face he’s deserved for a long time.

Hot Mess #2: Paul Ryan for just being a mess

Paul Ryan

Deep down, we all knew that Paul Ryan was incompetent. I mean, the man couldn’t even convince us that he respected Trump after months of refusing to back him as the Republican nominee.

Now, after the Trumpcare debacle, it’s evident that Paul Ryan can’t even convince his Republican colleagues to vote in his favor.

What a joke….

Honestly, Paul Ryan is just trash. I hate calling people that, but when you have someone like Ryan who chooses to blatantly lie to the American public, trash becomes the most appropriate descriptor to use.

p.s. I wish politicians were as sweet and innocent as these animated penguins. The world would be a much better place. Ah, well.

Double p.s. Word on the street is Paul Ryan even got on his knees to beg GOP reps to vote in favor of Trumpcare. This may be more embarrassing than losing the vote.

Hot Mess #3: Tomi Lahren for getting fired

As previously reported, Tomi Lahren, host of Tomi on The Blaze was suspended from her conservative-leaning show after supporting abortion rights on The View. Now, it looks like The Blaze has made Tomi’s suspension permanent. Ouch…

Tomi Lahren ‘banned permanently’ from The Blaze: report

Under normal circumstances, I would feel bad for anyone who has lost their job. However, Tomi, who has been so incredibly insensitive to minority rights (including women’s rights) in 2016, deserves it.

Yup, Karma is definitely a….pain.

Side note: We all know Tomi will ultimately be fine. She’s a young blonde white woman with 4 million followers on Facebook. Her worst case scenario is marrying someone with money. #Letsbehonest

We All Wanna Be Bad And Boujee

I know it’s been a few weeks, but I had to battle my PTSD from 2016 before being ready to start posting again. Now, I’m back and ready to take on 2017 full force in my Star Wars onesie (no pun intended). Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Donald Trump for being a child

Last night, many of our favorite celebrities gathered at the 74th Golden Globe Awards, giving all of us plenty to talk about.

Out of all of the celebrities, Meryl Streep gave the most memorable speech as she accepted the honorary Cecil B. DeMille Award for her long career in Hollywood. In her speech, Streep ripped Donald Trump to shreds without ever mentioning his name, a move only a GOAT could make.

In response to Streep, Trump went straight to Twitter, calling the icon “over-rated.”

The funny part about this story is not so much Trump’s behavior, but the fact that we all were waiting for his tweet after Streep’s speech. Like how predictable can one idiot be?

As much as I want to be upset that our next president uses Twitter for temper tantrums, I just can’t continue to be that mad. At the end of the day, Americans chose to put the child in office…

Hot Mess #2: Any American who voted for Trump while on Obamacare

Look, I’ve said this before. I don’t really want this blog to turn too political, so I’m going to keep this one short and sweet.

This week, the hottest debate in Washington is whether or not to repeal the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare). As the reality of a potential repeal approaches, many Americans who rely on Obamacare are growing fearful. Funny enough, a large number of these Americans were the same ones to elect Trump into office (because that made sense…).

When you find out the ACA and Obamacare are the same thing…

It will be interesting to see how everything plays out over the next few weeks/four years. For now, I’m just going to sit here with my popcorn and hope the world doesn’t blow up…

How the tables are turning on Obamacare

Hot Mess #3: Whoever gave Jenna Bush Hager a super hard time for “Hidden Fences”

Okay, let’s rewind and take it back to last night’s Golden Globes.

On the Globes red carpet, Jenna interviewed Pharrell Williams, opening with “So you’re nominated for Hidden Fences.” Unfortunately for Jenna, there is no such thing as Hidden Fences. There are, however, two Black films currently out in theaters. One is Hidden Figures and the other is Fences.

Personally, I think the gaffe was hilarious. I mean, come on. Figures. Fences. Feelings. There are a lot of Fs at work here, so it’s completely understandable how such a mistake could happen. And, I don’t think it was necessary to crucify Jenna Bush for her error on Twitter just because she’s white (Let’s be honest. This is why this is news.)

Anyways, Jenna gave a heartfelt apology on the Today Show this morning. Poor thing. At least all the Hollywood Blacks showed her plenty of love to make her feel better.

All we need is love, love. Love is all we need.

p.s. A part of me wonders if Jenna Bush was forced to apologize since her cousin, Billy, was kicked off air for insensitive remarks last year….Hmmm…Hmmm…Either way, I like Jenna and think the apology was genuine.

Hot Mess #4: Anyone who dragged Donald Glover for his acceptance speech

One standout moment during the Golden Globes was when Donald Glover’s Atlanta won for Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical. The win was completely unexpected along with Glover’s thank yous…

Yup, at the very end of his speech, Glover chose to thank the rap group Migos for making the hit song “Bad and Boujee.”

Needless to say, there were a number of uptight individuals who thought that Glover should have been “better” prepared and should have touched on the significance of his win (a.k.a. been more emotional and commented on the fact that he’s Black and winning a major award like Viola Davis).

Maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but here’s my take….

How about we all just let Donald Glover and every other artist/person live. Although I think it’s important to acknowledge the achievements of people of color in Hollywood, I also think it’s important to let people express themselves. If Donald Glover thinks it’s an appropriate moment to shout out Migos, then well, let him have his moment. Not to mention, shouting out Migos seems almost perfect given the subject matter of Atlanta.

Aaaaaand, on a completely different note, let’s talk about Brad Pitt….

This man walked into the Golden Globes last night, surprised everyone, looked like his old hot self and killed his 1 minute presentation of Moonlight, a movie he quietly helped to produce and that would ultimately take home Best Drama Motion Picture.

Now, that’s how you handle a terribly public divorce. Get it, Brad!

I’m sure Angie is rooting for you too deep down inside….
