ana navarro

Ana Navarro, conservative strategist and political commentator, absolutely stole the show at the 2017 AHAA: The Voice of Hispanic Marketing conference. Her Tuesday morning session, “Multiculturalism and Today’s Media: The 2016 Election and What It All Means,” was the highlight of the entire event. The jokes she made about “The Wall” and her story of what she said to Paul Ryan at the Romney retreat was worth the price of admission all by itself.

She was part of a panel that included the woman in that AWFUL  Tronc video Anne Vasquez, and Juan Carlos Lopez, anchor of CNN en Español.

ANA NAVARRO

Ana Navarro, conservative strategist and political commentator, slayed the room with this joke about Donald Trump’s supposed wall on the United States-Mexican border- “I think he will get a half mile wall of Legos, and his supporters will enjoy that.”

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Says Bill Maher Shouldn’t Be Fired for Using N-Word

kareem abdul jabbar

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar pens a column for The Hollywood Reporter these days, and in his latest offering, he weighed in on the firestorm surrounding HBO talk show host Bill Maher. The polarizing comedian was the #1 trending term on Twitter for much of Friday night due to his using the N-word while interviewing Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse.

Abdul-Jabbar, yes the very same Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who is the all-time leading scorer and player with the most career wins in NBA history, says he doesn’t think that Maher should be fired for what he did.

Ogden Raptors Sexist, Objectifying Promotion Only Symptom of Industry’s Bigger Problem

ogden raptors

“As long as it’s legal, and in good taste, we’re going to do it,” proclaimed Shawn Hunter, co-owner of the not yet named minor league Rosemont baseball team.

Another minor league baseball team, the Ogden Raptors went the opposite route. They came up with something called “Hourglass Appreciation Night,” which was as sexist, objectifying and socially regressive as a sports promotion can get.

Yet, it’s actually not all that much worse than what the supposed leaders of the sports industry have been doing for many years.

Dodgers Affiliate, Ogden Raptors Deservedly Criticized For Sexist, Objectifying Promotion

dodgers affiliate ogden raptors

The Ogden Raptors, a Rookie League affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers, realize that when you’re a minor league baseball franchise, you have to get creative with your promotions.

With over 200 minor league baseball franchises in the United States, you’ve got to be original in order to get attention from the media and publicity industries.

For some bizarre reason, the Ogden Raptors went the sexist objectification route. They came up with something called “Hourglass Appreciation Night,” a promotion that has less-than-optimal optics. It actually looks like the product of a stuck-in-the-1950s marketing focus group which was led by Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly.

Eric Trump Golf Event Swindle of Sick Kids Shows Both His Sinister Side and His Idiocy

eric trump

Everything you really need to know about Eric Trump can be discerned from his portrayal on Saturday Night Live by Alex Moffatt. His “AND I’M ERIC!!” lampoon line is pretty much who he is, as he’s consistently shown a tendency to “say the quiet part LOUD! and the loud part quiet.

You can use an Eric Trump soundbite to perfectly encapsulate why our democracy is crumbling and our nation is falling apart- “we get all the funding we need out of Russia.”

Jonathan Toews Makes Passionate Call for Action on Climate Change

jonathan toews

Climate change is real and there is certainly no debate on that. Science has decided that, whether global warming deniers or skeptics choose to accept it. Of course, the major key to resolving the climate crisis is to get everyone on board with the cause and on the same page with their beliefs.

Chicago Blackhawks star Jonathan Toews has once again shared his views on climate change, and he’s made his plea to people on both sides of the debate. This is exactly what he hope to see from big time pro athletes like Jonathan Toews, using the tremendous platform he possesses to project a powerful social message.

March for Science Statement on U.S. Withdrawal From Paris Climate Agreement

march for science

Yesterday was disastrous for the eco-movement. POTUS Donald Trump made the horrific decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate agreement. The U.S. now joins Nicaragua (who’s out of the accord because they don’t think the pact goes far enough in trying to prevent disastrous climate change) and Syria as the only other major developed nations out of the Paris Climate Agreement. 

This abominable decision by Trump is a complete failure on multiple levels. The United States has now ceded its position as leader of the free world.

Paul Ryan Must Stand Up to Violence Against Journalists; Deny Greg Gianforte His Seat

paul ryan

The fate of our country lies in the hands of sane, moderate Republicans. Think of them as Republican classic, from the 1980s or early 1990s, long before they became hijacked by the lunatic fringes of the Tea Party/Freedom Caucus and religious extremists.

Today it’s on Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to stand up, be strong and send a message that the GOP is actually something more than just the party of getting nothing done.
