Yet another celebrity has endorsed Joe Biden for president: singer, actress Jennifer Lopez and her husband Alex Rodriguez.

As reported by Fox News, the “Jenny from the Block” singer endorsed the former vice president while speaking with him and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, on a virtual chat. Throughout the talk, the couple talked about their most important issues: rebuilding the economy, overcoming racism, and defeating COVID-19.

“We’re thrilled and we’re excited to vote. I think our voice has never been more important,” Rodriguez told Biden. “We want to come together as a team to defeat Covid and to rebuild this U.S. economy that needs us all so much.”

“For me, it’s unifying the nation again, you know. Getting rid of this hate. Thinking about my kids walking around in a world where, you know, it’s okay to be racist or prejudiced because our administration says it’s okay,” added Lopez. “That, to me, is really sad ‘cause it’s not the country I believe that I grew up in.”

Jennifer Lopez then asked Joe Biden to explain what he would do to help the Latino community, which has been severely affected by COVID-19. After he laid out the usual talking points about how Trump has failed to help Latinos, Lopez said she hopes the American Latino community will realize their power.

“My kind of hope and quest for the Latino community is that they start understanding their power, they understand what they mean to this country, that their vote counts,” said Lopez.

“But I hope you realize your power,” Jill told Lopez. “For the last couple months, I’ve been having charlas with so many Latina women, and I tell them … ‘If I have the honor of being the next first lady, Latina women will have a seat at the table.’”

“And in the cabinet,” Biden added.

Jennifer Lopez endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016 and urged Latinos in Florida to get out and vote.

“This election is one of the most important in our lifetime,” she said at the time. “Florida, home to one of my favorite cities, Miami, and millions of Latinos is a pivotal state in this election. It’s time to unify, support, and vote for the only choice that makes sense not only for Women or for Latinos, but for all Americans. Vote for Hillary. I’m with her.”

Jennifer Lopez’s endorsement of Joe Biden comes a little over a week after pop singer Taylor Swift endorsed the former vice president, declaring him the “change we need most.”

“The change we need most is to elect a president who recognizes that people of color deserve to feel safe and represented, that women deserve the right to choose what happens to their bodies, and that the LGBTQIA+ community deserves to be acknowledged and included,” Swift told V Magazine. “Everyone deserves a government that takes global health risks seriously and puts the lives of its people first. The only way we can begin to make things better is to choose leaders who are willing to face these issues and find ways to work through them.”

Under a Biden/Harris administration, Swift said that “America has a chance to start the healing process it so desperately needs.”

Of course Lopez is endorsing Biden. Biden said some harsh things about how Blacks aren't as good as Hispanics.

"Getting rid of hate?" If Joe "hey children, stroke my hairy legs" Biden ("Come on, man!") and Kamala "let me jail you illegally for years" Harris is their idea of getting rid of hate, then they really are clueless.

More Hollywood hacks who think they know something about politics. Of course they're going to support Biden! To them, its all about getting their families into this country! Who cares if America drops into the tank to do it, right? Stupid idiots! This pair live the life of kings and queens and think that's normal. I have no ill will toward anyone who happens to be rich. Good for them. They best not try to tell me that they live a 'check-to-check' life like most of us; I don't care what kind of poverty they came from. Clearly they've forgotten that. If they truly cared, they'd go back to their families and share their wealth.

Well lady, like most hollyweird freaks, you are making a big mistake! Of course the American People have come to expect this from your pitiful group. And you can stick your lgbABC group where the sun doesn't shine. A man is a man, a woman is a woman and they are meant to be with the OPPOSITE SEX!

Of course the Hollywood elite has been in the corner of socialism and marxism. No surprise here. I would not be surprised if he voted for President TRUMP. She is a loose screw.

No surprise here. Do have to say I'm sure everyone was just waiting to vote until they heard an endorsement from this couple. Considering the fact that, where polls are open, long lines are everywhere in middle America. Safe to say no one really cares about hollywood endorsements.

She backed Obama. Obama had huge hidden agendas. She backs Biden. Biden has huge hidden Agendas. Lets face fact,,,,, electing people with huge hidden agendas is a guaranteed avenue to failure that brings the very next elected to be THE EXACT THING... actors hate... people without hidden agendas. Actors= Recently wealthy= lacking wisdom... is proven endlessly... listening to those without wisdom and making decisions on their evaluations is like taking advise from children.. spoiled children.

Who cares who Taylor Swift (who is not too Swift) Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, has-beens, are voting for? Anyone who would waste their vote on Biden and Harris, must be short a few braincells! I guess they would like to see our country turned into another Venezuela! How stupid can they get??? The New Green Deal, which would cause the loss of thousands of jobs, not to mention the Taxes that would go through the roof! Unbelievable!!!

Who cares??? I care as much about your opinion as I do the color and status of my dogs poop. Why do celebs think us lil people want to know anything about their uninformed decisions. Those of us below the clouds live out the cronky that's put in the office. Celebs are brought out to hook the noses of those who need someone to think for them. Sorry sweeties, you don't do nothing for me.

I thought she had more brains than that. No big surprise though, most celebrities are stupid lefties. Their "endorsements" won't get the old geezer elected.

Hmmm... I wonder if Lopez has thought back on the 8 years of Obama and Biden? I wonder if she remembers that these two "individuals" had managed to put 47% of Americans on some type of Welfare? I wonder if she remembers that Obama said the only way for Trump to bring back jobs to America was if he had a "magic wand"? Trump didn't need a magic wand. His hard work prevailed and he brought unemployment down to its lowest point in 50 years for blacks, Asians and Latinos. Trump took millions off the unemployment AND Welfare roles but still had a surplus of jobs to be filled. Then, after the "Magic wand" statement, when Trump had America booming again, Obama tried to take credit for Trump's work! I wonder if she forgot about the corruption, racial bigotry and divisiveness brought about from Obama and Bidens 8 years of terror, too. Don't forget about the scandals that Obama says didn't exist. Fast and the furious, Benghazi, the ransom paid for our sailors and many more. I haven't forgotten! How could she?

Not surprising that a cheater and liar, whose steroid-induced home runs gave him stolen valor which he lied about, should endorse a cheater and liar. Not sure why JLo goes with him, she must be just as bad.

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.”
