ladies idiots of The View welcomed noted rap “artist” and violent thug T.I. to their show to sermonize on the evil, racist, fur-wearing, baby seal-clubbing, water polluting, sexist Donald Trump and any Black celebrities that even entertain any idea of talking with our president
Rapper T.I. unloaded on black celebrities who met with Donald Trump after the election, saying they failed to challenge the president for disrespecting and degrading black voters during the campaign.
The Atlanta–based artist told the co-hosts of The View Thursday that he took issue with talk show host Steve Harvey, rapper-producer Kanye West, and football Hall of Famer and civil rights champion Jim Brown meeting with Trump.
“Before you stand and smile and say this is a good man and take pictures, what about addressing the disrespect and disregard for our community that was done?” T.I. said, adding “And what about him being the poster child for white supremacy and standing for the people who look to devalue our lives?”
How did Trump degrade Blacks voters exactly? How is he a “poster child” for White supremacy and how did he show disrespect and disregard for T.I’s “community”? Lets see if the hosts of The View challenged the all knowing T.I.
Shocker! But one meaningful question was put to T.I., no one even thought of asking for context, or substantiation for his claims. All the hosts could do was nod their heads in adulation and agreement. But agreement to what? What T.I. said amounted to baseless accusations, gross generalizations, and, to be honest, incoherent babbling. Yet the audience fawned over him, the hosts exalted him. T.I. is a celebrity, so his wisdom must never be challenged or something.
T.I. also is a fairly regular guest on ESPN, because The View cannot have all the celebrity agitators. Apparently, a lengthy rap sheet is required to be a celebrity everyone loves
Long before T.I. was hip-hop’s “King of the South,” he was Clifford “Tip” Harris, a teenage drug dealer living the seedy life he would later detail in his music. Where many of his peers have moved on from a life of crime to one of luxury and fame, T.I. has struggled to leave it all behind
Of course it is likely Donald Trump is to blame for Clifford’s behavior, after all Cliffy is an “artist”, so he must remain blameless
Earlier this month, just as Takers, a film he produced and starred in, made its debut as the most watched film in America, T.I. got arrested on drug-possession charges. Anyone who’s been following T.I.’s career for any length of time knows that this latest bust was unfortunately neither his first nor his worst. For those that haven’t been keeping track, here’s a rundown of his most shocking offenses.
T.I.’s troubles started early on. He took to the street life when his father passed away, and his uncle went to prison on drug charges. T.I. started selling drugs out of his home as a teen, eventually dropping out of high school to push weight full time. After numerous close calls with law enforcement, an 18-year-old Tip finally found himself arrested in 1997 on charges including felony distribution of crack cocaine, giving authorities a false name, and manufacturing and distributing a controlled substance.
Sentence: Seven months in prison and seven years of probation
In September of 2003, mere weeks after the release of his breakthrough album, the Southern rap landmark Trap Muzik, T.I. found himself back in hot water. During a trip to the University Mall in Tampa, Fla., Harris and his entourage were accosted by mall security and asked to leave due to their loud behavior. Tip and company refused to leave, and the police were called. Rather than picking up and leaving, T.I. instead assaulted the female sheriff on the scene. T.I. was convicted of battery of a law enforcement officer and violating probation.
Sentence: 225 hours of community service.
Likely Cliffy should have gotten a harsher sentence. But maybe the judge saw Cliffy’s “art” and was forgiving
Years of living recklessly in the wake of his 1998 jail stint and subsequent years of probation caught up with T.I. as he racked up a litany of offenses ranging from possession of marijuana to possession of a firearm, leading the state of Georgia to revoke his parole.
Sentence: A year in prison (during which time a camera crew was inexplicably snuck in for an unauthorized video shoot that accidentally facilitated the escape of another inmate), and two years on a work-release program.
In May, T.I.’s entourage was involved in a fatal shootout that claimed the life of his best friend and personal assistant, Philant Johnson. Crushed and paranoid, T.I. began amassing weapons to fend off a perceived threat against his life. He became the subject of a federal investigation that culminated in his arrest hours before 2007’s BET Hip Hop Awards, where he was scheduled to perform. He’d been using his bodyguard to broker a deal for the purchase of a veritable Call of Duty match worth of weapons including, but not limited to pistols and sighted machine guns. The vendor turned out to be a federal agent.
Sentence: Six months in prison, three months in a halfway house, one month of house arrest, three years of probation, a $103,000 fine, and a thousand hours of community service whose completion was documented in the brazenly self-promotional MTV series T.I.’s Road to Redemption, which looked like more of an extended commercial for his 2009 album, Paper Trail, than a punishment.
Again, how was he given a slap on the wrist? T.I. also was arrested in 2010 for possession of a controlled substance. Yet he has flourished despite his character issues and thuggery. Talk about privilege
Poor Amy Schumer, her Netflix special is bombing, and Amy is blaming Alt-Right trolls
Amy Schumer has lashed out at Internet “trolls” she claims launched an online campaign to tank the reviews of her latest comedy special.
One week after its March 6 debut, The Leather Special had received hundreds of one-star reviews from Netflix members. Schumer responded to the backlash Wednesday on her Instagram account, quoting a news report from Splitsider that claims hundreds of trolls purposefully flooded her comedy special with negative reviews.
“The alt right organized trolls attack everything I do. Read the @splitsider article,” the Trainwreck star wrote. “They organize to get my ratings down. Meeting in sub Reddit rooms. They tried on my book and movies and tv show. And I want to thank them.”
I suppose Schumer could be right, who knows. But she ought to consider another possibility. She just isn’t funny
Schumer’s Netflix special currently holds a 4.4 out of 10 rating on The Internet Movie Database (IMDB) — down from 5.5 less than a week ago.
The Leather Special is also showing a 22% audience score of viewers who “liked it” on Rotten Tomatoes.
Reviews from television critics have also been lukewarm. The Los Angeles Times‘ Lorraine Ali writes that the special features Schumer’s signature brand of dirty humor, but “ironically, the dirtier it gets, the less daring it feels.”
Meanwhile, Newsday’s Verne Gay gave the special a “C” grade.
“It’s all there. She’s all there. Every bit of her,” Gay wrote. “As usual, it’s mostly also all one subject, or variations on that subject, along with every imaginable word to describe that subject, along with some physical pantomime or gesture to add texture and meaning to this subject, just in case the words themselves didn’t quite suffice. As if.”
In other words Amy Schumer is not really that funny, and her usual fare has grown stale
Terrible news He was a good actor, always enjoyed his work RIP

If you are a 67-year-old man, who is becoming a woman, NEVER take nude photos
Caitlyn Jenner had a slow 2016, but she is planning a major comeback in 2017 with her first ever naked photo shoot.
Ah, no, just no! And, yes, this is to push a new “reality” Show
Dave Blount offers this insight
Cait has learned from that experience and wants the new show to be more silly and fun like the Kardashian show. It will focus less on [him] being a transsexual and more on being a single girl that wants to date and have a great time.”
The “single girl” in question is a 67-year-old man.
There is good naked, and bad naked, this would be very bad naked! Seinfeld explains
