Tory Lanez might not be affected by the current threat of war looming between the United States and Iran because of his Canadian nationality but the superstar still decided to voice his opinion on the frightful situation. With all the WWIII memes being shared across TikTok, Twitter, and other social media platforms, Lanez offered his take on why President Donald Trump chose to attack his rivals with a drone airstrike, killing general Qasem Soleimani. In the artist's eyes, it all has to do with the threat of being booted from the White House in the upcoming election.
After Donald Trump became the third President to ever be impeached, Tory Lanez believes that he may have stooped this low to heighten his chances of re-election in the fall. He noted that he would be keeping his nose out of this drama, but that came after he let off a potential conspiracy theory.
"So basically America bout to go into war becuz it’s re-election time... and the chances of switching a president while a war is going on are slim," wrote the rapper on Twitter. "Just saying ... who the fuck am I ... but seems about right to me ... however I’m Canadian so ima stay outta this."
The Chixtape 5 singer doesn't seem too offbase. This would be the wildest thing Trump has done as President and, let's be honest, would anybody be surprised if this was actually the case?

A$AP Ant Trolls Trump’s Allies After A$AP Rocky Ghosts Them & Doesn’t Say Thank You
A$AP Rocky is out of prison in Sweden but apparently, he’s now being sought after by the American government. Not for any crimes but for a lack of a co-sign. You see, with the presidential elections on the way, Trump’s admin thought that helping A$AP Rocky get out of prison in Sweden would essentially be a good look for them. Although it didn’t seem to work initially, it appeared as though Trump’s phone call to the Swedish PM may have helped Rocky get released in jail and come home later. And all they were asking for was thank you.

Pastor Darrell Scott, who was part of Trump’s transition team and board member of National Diversity Coalition for Trump, slammed A$AP Rocky and his team who he claimed essentially ghosted them after coming home. Scott called them “ungrateful motherfuckers” who couldn’t give them a phone call or a thank you. While Rocky’s yet to officially respond to these claims, a member of the A$AP Mob chimed in with a comedic take.
“Gingerbread man,” he wrote in a tweet that quoted the article. “catch A$AP if you can,” he added with a peace sign and running emojis.
Scott said that there were no conditions to having Trump reach out on his behalf except for a simple thank you and some gratitude. Well, like many Republicans found out in recent times, you don’t always get what you ask for.
Cardi B Applauds Jay-Z’s NFL Deal, Thinks He Could "Bring Back Colin Kaepernick"
Cardi B rocks with Jay-Z’s power move.
Cardi B was peeling out of the Bryant Park Hotel in New York City when TMZ apprehended her with a series of loaded questions. First off, the reporter asked her to elaborate on her support of Bernie Sanders 2020, by which she feigned ignorance, implying that a split-career in politics was beyond her limits, much less host a talk-show that touches on hot button issues.
When asked if she’d consider performing at the Democratic National Convention in the event of Bernie Sanders’ crowning, she simply replied, “Sure, why not.” It would seem that Cardi B has learned a thing or two about airing on the side of discretion since being falsely “outed” as a date rapist. The reporter then tabled his next talking point: Jay-Z’s new partnership with the NFL.
“I feel like he went in there like, ‘Alright, you guys want me to work with chy’all, y’all need to bring my peoples in there. Y’all need to do things my way,’ ” she said of Jay-Z. “I feel like Jay-Z could bring back Colin Kaepernick. I feel like he has that power.”
Jay-Z’s deal with the NFL is a divisive issue on the micro-level. Some have argued that it wasn’t Jay-Z place to turn the page on “kneeling for the anthem.” On the other hand, others appreciate his initiative. You could argue that by forcing the NFL to fight against oppression, and pay for it too, he’s actually turned the table right OFF its axis.
Kid Rock Takes Blowjob Jab At Taylor Swift Because She’s A Democrat
Kid Rock thinks that Taylor Swift has to "suck the door knob off Hollyweird" to get roles in movies... because she's a Democrat.
Kid Rock is many things but bright is not one of them. You see, Republicans, at least the MAGA-aligning ones, are usually the ones to call out people for their "indecency" but often fail to regulate their own vulgarity. Such is the case with Kid Rock who's clearly furious that a country-pop star from Nashville doesn't want to see Donald Trump in office for a second term. After Taylor Swift appeared in the Cats trailer, Kid Rock suggested that she'd have to succumb to the advances made by men like Harvey Weinstein in order to get roles in films like this... like she hasn't been a hitmaking popstar for the past decade and a half.
"Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies….period. And it looks like she will suck the door knob off Hollyweird to get there. Oldest move in the book. Good luck girl," he wrote on Twitter before signing off to make sure that everyone knows his account wasn't hacked and this was a real thought that he had.
This isn't a random jab at Taylor Swift, however. It comes a day after she discussed her political views and the 2016 Trump campaign specifically. "Unfortunately in the 2016 election you had a political opponent who was weaponizing the idea of the celebrity endorsement," she told Vogue about not endorsing any candidates in that 2016 election. "He was going around saying, ‘I’m a man of the people. I’m for you. I care about you.’ I just knew I wasn’t going to help.”
Although Taylor Swift hasn't responded, this might be the first time in a while that she's looked like a good guy in the public eye.
Cardi B Says America Let Down Bernie Sanders In 2016
"This man been fighting for equal rights, HUMAN rights for such a long time."
Cardi B is no rookie when it comes to expressing her thoughts on the political climate in the United States. The "Press" rapper has previously encouraged her followers to stay up to date on who's running for president so they can make a calculated, informed choice on who they chose to vote for.

More recently, Cardi B shared a video on Instagram asking her fans to comment with questions they have for the next president, sparking a conversation on health care, gun laws and equal pay. The latest political moves Cardi has made has taken place on Twitter where the rapper shared a statement about her feelings on Bernie Sanders and how she feels America has let him down.
"I been reading about Bernie Sanders and I’m really sad how we let him down in 2016 This man been fighting for equal rights, HUMAN rights for such along time. Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign," she wrote.
A user then responded to Cardi's tweet, reminding her of a time she once complained about paying taxes - something Bernie wants to increase for the rich. "I don’t mind paying taxes if I see on what am I paying my taxes on.Its sad that we pay so much taxes yet we don’t have free college education neither free healthcare," Cardi responded
The Game Says Reparations Should Be Updated To 40 Acres & A Lambo
Pay what you owe
The Game was quick to remind a TMZ reporter that America was built on the backs of slaves when asked about reparations. Although the nation acknowledges that America prospered due to hundreds of years of free labor, it has been impossible for politicians to find a proper replacement for the once promised 40 acres and a mule. Although reparations are highly unlikely, Democrats with their eye on the 2020 election are using the idea of reparations to stir up the press and earn votes. Talk of reparations have bounced around Congress for decades without any real progress on the topic. The Game believes he has found the answer though.
“It look like 40 acres and a Lamborghini,” answers The Game when asked what reparations should look like in 2019. From there, the Compton rapper begins to speak on politics. When asked if he would vote for a politician that offered 40 acres and a Lamborghini, Game thinks for a minute before barking, “I don’t even think I can vote, I’m a felon bro.” He then devotes himself to the idea of allowing felons who have served their time to vote, which is allowed in some places in the US. While it’s unlikely Congress will find a resolution to reparations anytime soon, I think they should at least consider The Game’s idea. Couldn’t hurt.
Donald Trump Vows To Deport "Millions Of Illegal Aliens" Next Week
Donald Trump doubles down on one of his favorite causes.
With the 2020 election on the horizon, President Donald Trump has unsurprisingly moved to double down on immigration, much to the delight of his base. Trump recently took to Twitter to issue a declaration of sorts, in which he vowed to kick off the process "of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States." With ICE at the forefront, Trump pledges that "they will be removed as fast as they come in," citing Mexico and Guatemala as willing to play ball. By his own account, the only ones forestalling the process from taking off are the "Democrats In Congress."

With the "border crisis" once again at the forefront of his agenda, Trump has officially kicked off his 2020 re-election campaign. Of course, this calls back to his original 2016 Presidental campaign, in which the "Wall" and border security emerged as cornerstones of his movement. Seeing as the climate has certainly changed since his initial election, and candidates like Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are breathing down his neck. Suffice it to say, things may very well get ugly.
The news reads particularly painful for the hip-hop community, who recently found one of their own suffering at the hands of ICE. 21 Savage's accounts of his experience paint a bleak picture in which families are torn apart, a reality that may once again come to pass if Trump's "purge" comes to fruition.
The Democratic Party Proves How Out Of Touch They Are Once Again By Booking Alesso
Next year, the United States will once again vote for who it wants to represent the country as president. Donald Trump was sworn into office as 45th president of the United States on January 20, 2017 — next November, the country will have the opportunity to either choose a new representative, or re-elect Trump for another four years.
The Democratic Party is doing all it can to prevent the latter from happening. Though California never goes red, the historically blue state still does its part in hosting events to drum up support. The California State Convention is the largest gathering of the most active Democrats from around the state. Saturday, June 1, 2019 they will be hosting a concert event at Temple Nightclub featuring musical guest Alesso.
Dance music artists have never been shy about voicing their opposition to our current administration, even if they’re not technically US citizens. The event is sponsored by Evan Low with the Foundation for California’s Technology & Innovation Economy.
As it is a sponsored night, tickets are a bit more expensive than usual. You’ll pay $55 for GA entry, or $100 for a Temple Bar Card Package, which includes entry and a bar card pre-loaded with $45. (There’s no savings here, except perhaps convenience.)
See the event here to RSVP or purchase tickets.
