Stevie Wonder hit out at Donald Trump for encouraging a far-right group and mishandling the coronavirus pandemic as he performed at a rally in Detroit featuring Joe Biden, Barack Obama and Gretchen Whitmer.
The legendary singer invoked the president’s words to the Proud Boys at the first presidential debate, when he told the group to “stand back and stand by”.
Wonder said: “You know what we say in the ghetto when somebody says that, right? Watch yourself, get your ass whupped.”
He urged attendees to maintain social distancing, saying: “We’ve got a situation going on because someone didn’t handle their business right.”
The Michigan native marked Halloween by playing “Superstition” among other hits, including “Overjoyed”.
Referencing an alleged plot to kidnap Ms Whitmer, governor of Michigan, Wonder said: “Excuse my language but that’s some bulls*** — unacceptable.”
Ms Whitmer, who urged rally-goers to turn out in force for Mr Biden on Tuesday, has said Mr Trump’s repeated attacks on her bear some responsibility for the alleged conspiracy and other threats to her life. He has continued to insult her at his events, where his supporters chant “lock her up”.
Mexican-Made Golden Trump Statue Turns Heads At CPAC
A golden statue of former President Donald Trump that caused a stir at the annual US gathering of conservatives was made in Mexico, a country he frequently ‘demonized.’
The statue is large, complete with a golden head and Trump’s trademark suit jacket with a white shirt and red tie.
Video and pictures of the tribute being wheeled through the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, went viral on Friday.
The conference is seen as a vital gathering of the Republican right, and this year has become a symbol of Trump’s continued grip on the party, despite losing the 2020 presidential election.
The artist behind the massive statue, Tommy Zegan, has revealed that it was ironically made in Mexico, a country that has been the target of Trump’s policies over the years.
“It was made in Mexico,” Zegan told Politico’s Playbook newsletter.
Zegan spent over six months crafting the 200lb fiberglass statue with the help of three men in Rosarito, where he then transported it to Tampa, Florida, where it was painted in chrome, then hauled it from there to CPAC.
‘It was sabotage’: McConnell ally tells CNN that Trump destroyed GOP’s Senate majority
The feud between former President Donald Trump and Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) shows no signs of slowing down, and a McConnell ally on Thursday said the former president was to blame for costing Republicans the Senate.
Scott Jennings, a CNN political commentator who has also worked on McConnell’s Senate campaigns, told the network that it’s clear that Trump was to blame for his party’s losses in the two Georgia Senate runoff elections.
“It’s pretty clear what happened: a whole bunch of Trump people didn’t turn out because, shockingly, they were listening to Donald Trump when he told them their votes didn’t count anymore,” Jennings said. “It was a sabotage and it was obvious to anybody who has even a little bit of political professional expertise.”
Jennings went on to say that the Republican Party cannot win if it simply becomes a Donald Trump personality cult.
“It’s pretty clear that Donald Trump overall was a net drag on the Republicans because we don’t control anything now,” he said. “He lost the White House, and that was before January the 6th. And so what I think the party has to do is find a way to hold the coalition together.”
Hillary Clinton effortlessly mocked Trump after his Atlantic City hotel was demolished
Much like his presidency, Donald Trump’s real estate empire is now starting to crumble around him as evident by the demolition of his former hotel and casino in New Jersey, known as Trump Plaza on Wednesday.
The once luxury 32-story complex situated on the Atlantic City boardwalk had fallen into disrepair and ruin after being closed to the public in 2014 after suffering a downturn in profits at the turn of the century combined with Trump filing for bankruptcy.
The implosion of the building was watched by thousands online and there was much schadenfreude going around as another piece of Trump’s image came tumbling down.
It was quite the moment and we’re just sorry that Trump isn’t allowed on Twitter anymore so we could have gotten his thoughts on the destruction of his old casino.
That being said we do still have Hillary Clinton, who in many ways, isn’t shy of sharing her opinions on social media, especially when it comes to her former presidential election opponent.
Quote retweeting a video of the implosion, Clinton added a simple wave emoji in response proving once again that she is the undisputed champion of succinct Trump trolling.
In January, she mocked the former president after he was permanently suspended from Twitter by using a call back to a 2016 tweet of hers where she told him to ‘delete your account.’
In regards to his demolished hotel, Atlantic City Council President George Tibbit called it an “end of an era” for the boardwalk which is now going to go under redevelopment.
