A few things went down yesterday:
(1) Politics – The first #DemDebate kicked off and me without access to a tv or a computer BUT I had my phone so Twitter came to my rescue. A “my fav tweets post” coming up soon but while you wait:
- “Hillary Clinton Leans In, Embraces Role Of First Female President” (Huffpo)
- “Hillary Clinton’s big night on the debate stage” (CNN)
- “Who Won the Democratic Debate?” (The Atlantic) – Apparently they didn’t get the memo that Clinton won.
(2) Entertainment News – The BET Hip Hop Awards were on… I usually recap those but after last year when I officially needed name tags and captions I kinda gave up. Plus like I was going to attempt to catch that foolishness over figuring out who is going to be the next leader of the free world – riiiiiight. (But I may have to catch a few of them cyphers tho) 😉
- “BET Hip Hop Awards Winners 2015 List: Kendrick Lamar & Big Sean Win Big” (Billboard)
(3) Sports – Maaaaaan, Lamar Odom took a serious “L”, damn son. I was following the debate via Twitter and every several tweets or so I would see this headline: “Lamar Odom found unconscious in a whorehouse.” Ummmm woooow. Eventually I started seeing the word “brothel” but still the word “whorehouse” really packs a punch doesn’t it? The next headlines I started seeing were “Khloe, Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner race to his side” then “Khloe Kardashian inconsolable as she races to Lamar’s side.” Right, so can I get an update on Lamar?
As of this posting, the latest seemingly accurate info I got is:
- “Odom, who checked in Saturday, was found unconscious about 3:30 p.m. (6:30 p.m. ET), according to Hof, who also owns the famous Moonlite Bunny Ranch featured in the HBO series “Cathouse.”
- “[Sheriff] Wehrly said Odom was treated first at Desert View Hospital in the nearby town of Pahrump before being taken by ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, about 60 miles away. Arrangements had been made to fly Odom to the Las Vegas hospital, but he was too tall to fit in the helicopter, authorities told NBC News.”
Via his rep:
- “Family and friends are extremely concerned for Lamar,” Odom’s longtime publicist and friend, Eve Sarkisyan, tells Us in a statement. “Please don’t listen to the false information being circulated unofficially. Please respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.” (USMagazine)
Apparently they stabilized his condition and we’re just waiting for another update. Hope he pulls through and is able to get some real help. Sad.
(4) More Entertainment News – T.I. was REAL reckless about the mouth re the possibility of a woman President. How reckless you ask? Well see for yourself:
- “Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally — they make very permanent, cemented decisions — and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to the Loch Ness Monster elected before you could [get a woman].”
I KNOW RIGHT????? He has since apologized. Whatever. Wonder what he’s raising his daughters to be…???
(5) More Politics – Mike Huckabee was SUPER ignorant and SUPER racist on Twitter last night. Maybe I’m the only one NOT surprised by this. I mean water is wet right??
