Twitter Fries Racist President Trump AKA Comrade Cheeto With #ObamaWasBetterAt Hashtag

President Donald Trump got his wispy lacefront all in a tizzy after a whiny Twitter rant over the weekend took cheap shots at four junior congresswomen of color. The former business mogul doubled down on his comments and failed to apologize, prompting Twitter users to fire back at Comrade Cheeto with the #ObamaWasBetterAt hashtag.

The tag began trending on Twitter Tuesday morning (July 16) and users are artfully using the moment to call out Trump’s reign in the White House in comparison to former President Barack Obama. The stark differences between the two men are apparent to anyone living in America despite what side of the aisle you claim, and it’s telling that folks have long laundry lists of traits that Obama was definitely better than Trump at maintaining.

We’ve collected the best of the #ObamaWasBetterAt hashtag comments below.

Safaree Releases “12-Inch Anaconda” Sex Toy, Thirsty Twitter Is Astonished

Safaree's "No Regular Girl" Single Release

Safaree Samuels hit a major come up after scoring a seven-figure deal to get a mold made of his penis for a then-unreleased sex toy. Now, fans of Scaff Beezy’s meats can experience a simulated version of his package by way of his 12-Inch Anaconda dildo.

Sex toy company Doc Johnson unveiled an exclusive first look at Safaree’s plastic penis prop via Instagram, stating that they’ll be showing off the new product at an upcoming trade show.

Some are speculating Safaree using the anaconda name is a slight jab at ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj, who had a song with the same name. Porn star Rico Strong dropped a comment on Doc Johnson’s page, slamming the company for not employing an actual adult entertainer, with Strong also saying Safaree is lying about having the inches listed on the package.

From IG:

Crazy y’all gave. a rapper wait. A reality show star a dildo deal But not a actual famous porn star veteran. with a 13 inch natural dic and let’s be Real Y’all teaching with that 12 shit for safaree we seen the tape. It’s a cool 9

Pause.

The thirst, and of course a little bit of slander, is real on Twitter and we’ve collected some of the reactions below.

Black Actress Lashana Lynch Is Reportedly The New Agent 007, Twitter Says Bring On The Martini

"Bond 25" Film Launch at GoldenEye, Jamaica

Source: Slaven Vlasic / Getty

James Bond is one of the most iconic film characters of all time and Daniel Craig’s version of the British super spy is nearing the end of his run. According to a number of reports, British actress Lashana Lynch will become the new Agent 007 in the upcoming Bond film.

Lynch, who is of Jamaican descent, made a star turn as fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in this year’s Captain Marvel alongside Brie Larson.

Daily Mail writes:

In what’s been called a ‘popcorn-dropping moment’, British star Lashana Lynch, will be given Bond’s licence to kill in the 25th movie in the franchise, currently being shot in Italy and the UK.

However, traditionalists can relax: she’s not the new Bond, but a new character who takes over his secret agent number after he leaves MI6.

The story begins with Bond retired in Jamaica. But spymaster M – played by Ralph Fiennes – calls him back in desperation to tackle a new global crisis.

A movie insider said: ‘There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says ‘Come in 007’, and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman.

‘It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.

Speculation has been swirling forever that Idris Elba would take on the role of Bond in Craig’s wake, but he’s experienced some pushback from fans of the fictional character, no doubt due to his race as many suggested.

However, fans on Twitter are over the moon that the 31-year-old Lynch will bring glamour and grit to the 007 legacy. Check out the reactions from the social media network below.

Boxing Legend Pernell “Sweet Pea” Whitaker Dead At 55, Twitter Reacts #PernellWhitaker

Pernell Whitaker, a four-weight world champion, was one of the best defensive boxers of his era. Fight fans from around the world are joined in mourning after news that the man known as Sweet Pea was struck by a vehicle Sunday night (July 14) in his native Virginia, dying from his injuries.

ESPN reports:

The Virginia Beach Police Department said that the incident remains an active investigation but that Whitaker was apparently hit by a vehicle at around 10 p.m. Sunday when he was walking at an intersection.

“When officers arrived on scene they located an adult male victim who had been hit by a vehicle. The victim succumbed to his injuries on the scene,” Virginia Beach Police Department spokesman L.M. Bauder said in a statement. “The driver of the vehicle remained on scene with police.”

Known as “Sweet Pea,” Whitaker, a southpaw from Norfolk, Virginia, was revered as perhaps the best defensive fighter in history as his slick moves confounded opponent after opponent.

In his time, Whitaker embarrassed his opponents with bob and weave skills that only Floyd Mayweather Jr. has come close to mastering. While his fists didn’t pack knockout power, he stood toe to toe with some of the most feared punchers ever and never once backed down from a challenge.

On Twitter, Whitaker’s name appeared atop the trending topics with reactions from fans all over the world. We’ve collected some of those responses below.

Rest Powerfully In Peace, Sweet Pea.

U.S. State Department Weighs In On A$AP Rocky’s Sweden Ordeal

A$ap Rocky Performs At Le Zenith

A$AP Rocky is still awaiting trial in a Swedish prison with several reports stating the conditions were less than satisfactory, and contact with the rapper has been minimal. The U.S. State Department has weighed in on the ordeal of the A$AP Mob star in a new statement.

POLITICO reports:

A State Department spokesperson said that the department is aware of the case and that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been briefed. Top officials at the department, including Robert O’Brien, the special presidential envoy for hostage affairs, are also closely monitoring the situation and working to make sure the rapper is treated fairly.

“There are certainly some facts about the arrest and detention that raise concerns,” the spokesperson said. “We expect all governments, including Sweden, to treat American citizens fairly and with respect. … We hope to see ASAP Rocky and his colleagues back on tour and reunited with friends and family soon.”

Swedish prosecutors must decide by Friday whether to charge Rocky, who is being held in solitary confinement, or ask a court to let them hold him longer.

Despite video evidence that shows Rocky and his crew did not initiate the altercation, Swedish officials are still struggling with how to approach the case under the legal system.

Beyoncé & Jay-Z Kicked It With Meghan Markle & Prince Harry At The Lion King Premiere

European Premiere of Disney's "The Lion King"

Source: WPA Pool / Getty

Despite the shenanigans of Donald Trump, relations between Britain and the United States are still solid. We know this because Meghan Markle and Prince Harry kicked it with Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the European premiere of The Lion King in London yesterday (July 14).

The Duchess and Duke of Sussex were photographed chatting it up with the Carters. Bey, a longtime fan of Markle, and the Duchess are even seen giving each other a hug. Proper protocol is to not touch a Royal, unless they engage first, which is likely what happened (Prince Harry is also seen hugging Bey while Jigga looks on).

All we need now is Markle in a proper Beyoncé video to make the cipher complete.

Check out photos of high key international diplomacy below. You just know this is going to show in a Jay-Z verse somewhere down the line.

Alleged R. Kelly Sex Captives Are Still Living In His Condo

R. Kelly Bond Hearing Held In Sexual Assault Case

Source: Scott Olson / Getty

R. Kelly has a huge mountain to climb legally as he faces charges of sex trafficking, racketeering, and other federal charges. However, reports went out that his alleged sex captives, Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, were booted from his Trump Tower condo but the women are reportedly still living there.


TMZ
reports:

A rep for Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary tells TMZ … the women were sitting comfortably in R. Kelly’s Chicago apartment inside Trump Tower on Sunday afternoon when they recorded this video … addressing claims they’d been evicted from the premises following Kelly’s arrest for 2 federal indictments.

In the clip — obtained by TMZ — Azriel does most of the talking and says they’re fine and dandy, and living comfortably inside R. Kelly’s pad.

They even give a glimpse of the view from the high-rise, showing off the Chicago skyline. Azriel says they’re at the “Trump” … and adds it’s the same place they’ve been for years.

However, she insists they move freely and come and go as they like, attempting to knock down the notion they’re being held against their will. This part seems to be a direct message to their parents — who’ve been vocally and publicly concerned for years now.

The parents of Savage and Clary have alleged that Kelly has kept the women captive over promises of a landing a music career. In the video shown below, the women thank the troubled R&B entertainer amid all the legal disturbance surrounding him.

Piper Perv: R. Kelly’s Ex-Employees Handed Over 20 Underage Sex Tapes To Feds

R Kelly Returns To Court For Hearing On Aggravated Sexual Abuse Charges

Source: Scott Olson / Getty

R. Kelly might finally face a level of justice unlike he’s ever seen in times prior in relation to his many ongoing legal ordeals. After the Feds took down the beleaguered R&B singer, details of the arrest have been coming forth, including some of Kelly’s former staffers handing over nearly two dozen tapes of him having sex with underage girls.

TMZ reports:

Gerald Griggs — who represents Joycelyn Savage’s family among others — tells TMZ the federal investigation run by the Northern District of Illinois uncovered over 20 videos of Kelly engaged with minors.

Both Griggs and our federal law enforcement sources tell us the tapes show multiple victims … and prosecutors confirmed with multiple witnesses the girls were underage. Griggs says several of Kelly’s enablers — past and present — flipped and turned over the tapes to investigators. He says those videos were exactly what the feds needed to secure indictments for sex crimes, including child pornography.

We broke the story last month … an ex-employee testified the singer regularly recorded his sexual encounters with underage girls, and believed the feds got their hands on some of that video.

Kelly is facing 13 counts, including four counts of producing child pornography, and two counts of receiving child pornography.

Jermaine Dupri Creates So So Def Female Cypher After Criticizing Women Rappers

Celebrities Visit Build - July 11, 2019

Source: Jason Mendez / Getty

Jermaine Dupri caught an avalanche of slander from a bevy of women rappers after he criticized them and compared them to being like strippers. After getting a strong lesson on women in the game that can do whatever they want in music just like the men are allowed, the veteran Atlanta producer announced the launch of a new women-focused venture.

“After all the calls,DMs, angry tweets and other messages saying “I am a major gatekeeper in the hip hop world,why don’t I invest in a female who is out here hustling and making a name for herself?” I decided to create the #SoSoDefFemalecypher, details coming soon,” Dupri wrote on his social media accounts.

On Twitter, R&B singer 6lack checked Dupri on the curious timing of the SoSoDef Female Cypher.

“[W]omen in hip hop don’t need representation/approval from men (ya cypher sounds more reactive than proactive). if u don’t have a fav artist that hits on the subjects u wanna hear, u could solve that wit a quick search & some support. plus, IF they do wanna talk about sex, they can,” 6lack wrote via Twitter.

Dupri fired back with, “You right!! they can talk about whateva they wanna talk about and I can have my opinion right ?” which didn’t endd there. 6lack returned fire saying, “sure, but “they all talkin about the same thing” ain’t accurate lol. i got an amazing playlist that i didn’t even break a sweat to make.”

Time will tell if the So So Def boss nails the concept.
