Carycruz Bueno, a postdoctoral research associate at Brown University’s Annenberg Institute, has gone viral after complaining that Trump 2020 flags — and even American flags — strike fear in the hearts of black people in America.

Bueno made the remarks on social media, where they soon went viral.

As highlighted by Campus Reform, Bueno — an economics researcher — said that she recently stayed at a Maine AirBnB that, very disconcertingly, had Trump signs in the yard.

Bueno added that AirBnB clearly “doesn’t understand the trauma” black people experience in seeing such Trump signs.

Bueno described the experience — which she said left her “immediately scared” — she had when renting a property with her husband.

She explained that when she arrived at the rental — a privately owned property over which AirBnB has no control — she saw “Trump signs and other white nationalist symbols.”

Bueno said that the display immediately made her “terrified and scared” for her life and her family’s safety.

“Disappointed @airBnB doesn’t understand the trauma of TRUMP signs on a @airbnb rental causes black person,” she wrote, according to the outlet.

Bueno said she contacted AirBnB, but the company, predictably, said their hands were tied in the matter, as the residence is privately owned.

She then went on to blast the company for being “only words and no action” and called for a “greenbook version of AirBnB” so persons of color would not have to “pay to feel uncomfortable and scared.”

Elsewhere during her Twitter rant, Bueno recalled the top five symbols that strike fear in the hearts of black people.

The list includes items such as KKK hoods and the Confederate flag, but also lists the American flag.

“[Y]es, this is a symbol used in many places to scare black people,” she insisted.

In a statement, Brown University Students for Trump President Emma Rae Phillips told Campus Reform that she is “disappointed” in Bueno’s remarks.

Phillips — an economics major — said that the researcher’s tweets “do not seem to show much understanding of how free markets work.”

Phillips added, “American flags and Trump signs are not racist in any way, shape, or form.”

You can see the full list of Bueno’s tweets below.

At the time of this reporting, Bueno’s Twitter feed settings have been set to private.

Ms. Bueno, if what you said is true and, all Black students at Brown are frightened and uncomfortable then, All teachers and leaders and the board at Brown should be fired and, all Black students at Brown should be transferred, at Brown's expense, to another University that actually teaches it's students to DEAL WTH THE REAL WORLD!!! That is obviously something you have NEVER been taught!!! This is 2020 politics and, it will continue to get worse before it gets better. I seriously doubt if any libtard university has ANY problems with all the Biden ads that are ALL LIES that have been proven MULTIPLE TIMES. You don't have any problems with those, do you? Yet, you have problems with Trump ads and signs. Figures!!! Stop attempting to force your warped sense of perspective onto your students and fellow teachers/professors!!! You're wasting your time!!!

Dear Ms Phillips. May I ask some simple questions? HOW on earth did you make it through grade school with your sanity intact? How did you find the calm and the concentration to learn to read, to learn basic math? Weren't you and your parents TERRIFIED of the huge American Flag that flies at every single public school in the country??? Did you skip middle school and high school because of the paralyzing fear of the Red White and Blue? How in the world did you get enough education to be accepted into college??? Do you run from the post office in horror? When Obama stood in front of American Flags at photo ops and ceremonies, did you cringe in fear and turn off the television?? Are you afraid to watch the Olympics because the American might win an event??? Did you refuse to watch football when they still honored the flag at games?? Are the black members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard shivering in fear when they salute the flag? Should black people be refused service in the Space Force because they may be asked to take an oath in front of the absolutely terrifying American flag? Perhaps you might want to think an argument or a position all the way through before you make blatantly ridiculous statements like that. If the sight of our flag is that fearful to you, you really should consider citizenship in a country whose flag you are NOT afraid of. I am sure there are quite a few people who would help you pack, escort you to the airport, and maybe even pay your fare, if you promise not to come back.

My children are 38 and 40 now I taught them how to deal with adversity. So they don't like Trump so what? Half the country does and he is our president so what I would say is learn to deal with it.

If she was scared and traumatized she and her family did not have to stay there. She thought if she came up with this bullshit she wouldn't have to pay for their stay.

So she asked EVERY BLACK PERSON IN THE UNITED STATES their opinion? The black people that I know and work with laugh at people like Bueno with their sanctimonious opinions. And the looting and rioting done by the so called BLM make them very angry. If other people's opinions, flags, etc. upset and trigger Bueno so drastically, she should stay in her safe space and avoid listening to any social media or even looking out her windows.

Bueno is just another socialist at Brown University and wants the world to think she is the ABSOLUTE TRUTH about her facts. Bull!!!!!!!! If those flags make you upset and afraid go back to the country of your relatives or family and you will probably fit it just perfectly. What a scum bag she is.......

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
