Balloons!

Sometimes I question why I choose Monday nights to blog. Then, I realize that Mondays can be rough and so it’s best to set the tone for the week. Well, hopefully… Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Hollywood for still not understanding #OscarsSoWhite

In the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards, the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite trended on Twitter. It was a direct result of the lack of diversity seen across the nominations for various categories, including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and so on. The Twitter chatter was so loud that Chris Rock, who hosted the awards ceremony, had to address the diversity conversation live.

Needless to say, that didn’t turn out so well. Remember when Stacy Dash, the one actress who’s probably lost her “Black card,” walked out on the stage…

Yeah…Anyways, apparently, Hollywood still hasn’t gotten the memo about the need for more diverse representation on the screen, giving roles written about people of color to white actors.

Luckily for us, we have talented POC individuals like Constance Wu, who stand up to the ridiculousness that is Hollywood. Constance stars in ABC’s “Fresh Off The Boat,” a hit comedy about an Asian-American family, and has been very vocal about Hollywood’s diversity problem.

Yup, I’ll let you guys read that one for yourselves…Sigh, when will Hollywood ever learn? Audiences are craving for diversity. Just give it to us! lol

Hot Mess #2: Donald Trump for being too lazy to educate himself

Honestly, I really don’t have that much against Donald Trump (I’m going to ignore his racist, chauvinist comments for a second. Bear with me.) More than anything, my real issue with Trump is the fact that he almost refuses to learn anything outside of his own outrageous opinions.

Trump says Putin is ‘not going to go into Ukraine’

Trump’s questionable stance on both domestic and foreign affairs is quite scary. The good news is Russia will not be going into the Ukraine because it already has…#AMess

Hot Mess #3: Anyone who has nothing better to do than bash Malia Obama

Over the weekend, Malia Obama chose to have fun at Lollapalooza instead of  hanging out at the DNC, a decision that all teenagers probably would have made. But, of course, the haters are going to hate and talk about everything from her attire to her dance moves to the fact that she passed on the DNC.

Well, news Fl-A-sh. One, Malia is a teenager wearing typical teenage clothes, doing typical teenage things. Two, she’s not running for office and her whole life has been nothing, but one long speech after another. So, let’s let the girl live.

Hot Mess #4: Bill Clinton for probably loving balloons more than U.S. citizens

Even though Malia did not watch the DNC, I, along with the rest of America, chose to witness the A-mazingness that was Bill Clinton playing with balloons.  Who knew that Bill could be THAT happy?

America The Beautiful

Last week, I thought the biggest hot mess story would be the drama between Kimye and Taylor Swift. Then, Melania Trump took the stage at the Republican National Convention (RNC) and all hell broke loose…

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Melania Trump for plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s speech

Melania Trump proudly addressed the American people last Monday night and endorsed her husband as the next POTUS. Unfortunately for Melania, fans of the Obamas were also watching the RNC and quickly realized that her speech sounded very familiar…

Melania Trump and Michelle Obama side-by-side comparison

Yup, that’s right folks. Melania Trump plagiarized Michelle Obama’s speech and thought she could get away with it…

Seeing as though we live in the age of social media, I’m not sure why anyone would ever plagiarize a high profile speech on national television. Then again, I know that Donald Trump’s campaign plays by its own rules and could care less about getting caught in a plagiarism scandal.

The good news is that Melania’s speech set off a series of amazing tweets.

p.s. Does anyone else think that Melania looked like Lucifer incarnate at the RNC? She’s definitely a beautiful woman, but those brows and eye makeup…

Hot Mess #2: Donald Trump for allowing Ted Cruz to take the stage

Unexpectedly, Ted Cruz became an American “hero” when he denounced Donald Trump’s nomination at the RNC.

Watch here –> Ted Cruz at the RNC

When the most punchable face on the planet beats you at your own game (even if it’s for 20 minutes), then you know you have a problem.

Side note: People tweeting that Ted Cruz looked like Mrs. Doubtfire throughout his campaign for the Republican nomination was the best.

Hot Mess #3: Debbie Wasserman and the DNC for just being a mess

If you haven’t heard, the DNC is corrupt. Surpriiiiiiise!

No, but really. Top members of the DNC (cough* cough* Debbie Wasserman) are corrupt and conspired against Bernie Sanders. Leaked DNC Emails

Sigh, when will people learn?

The last thing we need during the rise of Donald Trump is a political scandal that works in his favor…#Amess

Needless to say, I’m currently watching the Democratic National Convention, hoping against anymore hot mess speeches or scandals. So far everything is going smoothly, but it’s only night 1. We have a whole week of possibilities. And, as last week showed, anything can happen. *Ellie Goulding voice*
