Meryl Streep vs Donald Trump


Lock the doors, lower the blinds, fire up the smoke machine and put on your heels-it’s about to get real up in this bitch. Let’s have a Kiki! For those of you that have lived under a rock, a Kiki is a party, for calming all your nerves. We’re spilling tea, and dishing just desserts one may deserve. In this Kiki, we will be discussing politics as we discuss Meryl Streep and the comments she made about President-elect Donald Trump in her acceptance speech at the 2017 Golden Globes on Sunday, January 8th.

Before we dive into what Trump response to it, here’s what she said:

In case you didn’t want to watch the speech, which you should have because it’s Meryl Streep, she called out Trump. This wasn’t just any other speech that calls him out, she didn’t mention him by name. Meryl mention about how that performance, Trump winning the election, was the one that stunned her.

“It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. But it was effective, and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth.”

She then went on to describe the event that was capture and burned into our mind, Donald Trump openly made fun of a disabled reporter at one of his rallies. Meryl said “And this instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing.”

And in Trump fashion, he took to twitter to talk about his dislike for the speech and how he didn’t make fun of a disabled reporter. Here’s the tweets:

First thing: Meryl Streep is not an over-rated actress. Megan Fox and Kristen Stewart are an over-rated actress. All Megan does it look sexy and I’m pretty sure they have someone off camera say her lines because she looks lost and confused. And Kristen has one look and one tone.  They are over-rated. Meryl Streep is not.

Secondly, how did multiple award-winning actress “lost big?” She got a lifetime achievement award and have been nominated more than anyone else in the room. And how does her support of Hillary Clinton also make her “lose big?” Please further elaborate on this.

Thirdly, There is video proof that Donald Trump did mock him. If Donald has a different definition of mocking, then he needs to look into a dictionary, which Urban Dictionary isn’t the one he needs to look into. Also, the reporter didn’t/doesn’t need to change a story to look bad because Donald Trump is doing a fine job at that himself with his inability to fact check. We’re not even going to discuss how your cabinet looks like you picked them off Craigslist because they are the most random assortment of people. And the media isn’t dishonest, they are just pointing things out that is true. I’ll be first to admit that media’s representation of things lately is “stretched” but when it comes to Donald, they are keeping him honest. Because how can one “Make America Great Again” when you sit there constantly and deny doing or saying things that are filmed?

Lastly, this one goes personally to Donald: If you are planning on going a huge rant like that, type it up in your notes app on your iPhone, screenshot it and post it on Twitter like everyone else. Ending your tweets with “…” and then continuing into another tweet is a sure-fire way for the “dishonest media” to make you look like a bigger ass than what you all ready are. Another way to go on a twitter rant and have no confusing is to have 1/2, 2/2, etc. at the end of the tweets so everyone is on the same page. You also need to stop using Twitter to communicate every detail and every comment. Your Twitter looks and reminds of a teenage girl who is pissed off because her parents took away her Ferrari. If you are suppose to be a representation of “everyday hard-working Americans” then get off Twitter, stop your bitching, put on your big boy pants, and go do some work.

This kiki was marvelous!! Let me know in the comments below what your stance on this matter is!

You Can’t Stop the Beat


With the world so full of hatred and discrimination, you just have been the beacon of light that will help change the world. It may seem dark and gloomy but instead of trying to avoid it, try to change it with hope. I know what you may be thinking, and yes. This is going to be one of those post if you couldn’t tell by now.

With Donald Trump winning the Presidency, the rights of many could be ripped away just because they “don’t like,” “don’t understand,” or simply “don’t care to like.” People won’t be able to marry who they would like because their state believes that the “marriage is sacred and between a man and a women”. Which is funny because the people who are saying this have had multiple divorces, which I think is ruining the sanctity of marriage more so that two people of the same gender loving each other. That’s besides the point. People are going to be discriminated based on what they look like, what they believe in, among other things. Don’t live in fear of being who you are. It’s not worth it. Whether you are a member of the LGBTQ+, someone who came from another country, whatever/whoever you are, just be you. Like I said multiple times, if people can accept you for you then they aren’t worth it.

The election showed us how much hatred and angst is in America. While change is good, time will tell if it was worth it in the end. I’m all for giving Trump the chance. I don’t agree with the hatred, the discrimination, or the intolerance that he brought out in people. And I’m not generalizing all of his supporters, that’s what he would like me to do in order to feed into it. That is me being like them. I’m not going to do that. But you need to understand, the majority of his supporters are like that. Those are the ones that stick out in the world. Show people that you want to help them be the change.

The musical/movie “Hairspray” is something that came into my head as I tried to wrap my head around this. Hence, why the title of this is “You Can’t Stop the Beat.” That songs pretty much sums up everything. They can try to stop the paradise we’re dreamin’ of. But they cannot stop the rhythm of two hearts in love. You can’t stop the beat. The whole musical is still very relevant to the situation. The social commentary in it is still very much here. That’s sad. Have we not learned to just love and accept each other for being them?

While you can’t change the outcome of the election, you can change minds and fight for what you believe is right. No matter what they try to do, they can’t stop the beat of your happiness. Keep on fighting on and change the world. Be the change you want to see in the world. So stop your bitching and moaning already because he won. It’s not the end of the world…at least not yet. It’s time to look into the future. Let’s change the world.

Billy Bush made him do it


Donald Trump’s wife, Melania Trump, did an interview with Anderson Cooper recently like any good wife would do in order to discuss the notorious tapes that leaks where the Donald  talked about grabbing women by their kitty cats and other lewd and crude comments that would make a sailor go to become a monk.

In the interview, Melania (we are going to call her Melly because we feel like we know her at this point) said that the comments surprised her because that isn’t her husband. She also told the anchor that she felt like Billy Bush egged the Donald on into having the conversation. Melly then went on to call all the sexual assault victims liars and go on to say “This was all organized from the opposition. And with the details … did they ever check the background of these women? They don’t have any facts”.

Once again, no one is taking responsible for their/his actions and playing the blame game. While Melly brings up one good point, that probably some of the girls that have come forth  are probably doing it for their 15 minutes of fame. But do you really thing that people have that much time on their hands to pay a bunch of women to come forth and say that “Donald Trump sexually assaulted me”? The answer to that question is no because they are out canvasing and trying very hard to get your husband not elected. Also, why would Billy Bush egg Donald Trump? Billy Bush lost his job because of the tapes. Why would he egg him on just to lose his job? That’s just stupid. Which,why is Billy Bush the only one that is taking the heat fo this? It’s makes no sense because there was another person involved in that talk. Accountability needs to happen. More so that what one “staged” publicity apology can fix.

Melly also called the tapes “boy talk” but like it has been stated before, this is way past boy talk. Boy talk is talking about less vulgar stuff that forcing yourself on a lady.But hey, what do we know because Billy Bush made him do it.

Let’s get rid of the 19th amendment


Lock the doors, lower the blinds, fire up the smoke machine and put on your heels-it’s about to get real up in this bitch. Let’s have a Kiki! For those of you that have lived under a rock, a Kiki is a party, for calming all your nerves. We’re spilling tea, and dishing just desserts one may deserve. In this Kiki, we will be discussing politics as we diving into the Trump supporters latest attempt to have him become President.

The site FiveThirtyEight, released infographics about how the election would pan out if just men and just women voted in the election. Here are the infographics:

Because of this, which was a great thing btw. The followers of Trump decided to have #Repealthe19th to become a thing. For those who don’t know, they are referring to the 19th amendment of the constitution that gave women the right to vote. Some of the tweets supporting it was saying that “women aren’t fit for politics“. One female supporter stated that “I would be willing to give up my right to vote to make this happen.” Another female supporter said “men should never have given women the right to vote.”

What.the.actual.fuck. So we should take away a right in order to allow Donald Trump to win. This is why people are viewing the majority of Trump supports as misogynistic jackass that are trying to “weed out” individuals and groups that they see as making America “not great.” Sidenote: does this plan sound familiar? It should because it’s the plan of Hilter and the Nazi in Germany. I know what you are thinking,and yes-this has been brought up by every media outlet in the country but its true. Trump supporters that act like this outweigh the ones that aren’t like that.

But why would you want to take away something that is a right? You guys sit there and tell everyone that they should vote on Election Day, which according to Donald is November 28th, and they you want to take away that right from a group of people just because they may cause your candidate to lose. The right to vote isn’t like a driver’s license that can get taken away when you do something wrong.

It’s also a bunch of bull that you don’t want your right to bear arms to go away but yet you want to #repealthe19th. That makes absoultely no sense and I don’t need to be into politics to see that your platform is a bunch of hypocritical bullshit. Do you know what those people had to go through in order to be able to vote? Google search “Women’s sufferage” and you’ll find it. Spoiler: it’s wasn’t all cupcakes and rainbows. But hey, why do you care because I have the right to bear arms and Donald Trump is president in your perfect world.

Do you also realize that you won’t have half of the rights and laws that are there to help you because of Women? Before the 19th amendment, you really didn’t have women in any political office because women were not seem as equals to men. By removing the 19th amendment you are pretty much setting back equality and proving that you are a massive group of assholes that is in a one-sided pissing contest to prove you are the best. Congratulations assholes, you won that one with your idiotic attempt to #Repealthe19th.

You also think that Donald Trump would come out and tell his supporters not to do this because he “respects women.” But yet, where is his statement on this? Especially after the fiasco of his leaked audio coming out and proving that is a pig and view women as piece of meat and they aren’t valued members of this country. Bottom line people is you need to lose the hypocritical bullshit with your platform and pick your battles when it comes rights. You can’t take away someones right and then complain when people are looking to take away one of yours. The “eye for an eye” concept doesn’t work this day and age.
