Anthony Weiner shows his “Weiner” again?

By Trissean McDonald

For the past 19 months, Weiner has placed himself in another sexting scandal in which he referenced the woman he sent them to “literally a fantasy chick,” according to a New York Post report published on Sunday.

As you may remember, former congressman Anthony Weiner, spent 12 years in the House of Representatives before resigning in June 2011 after posting inappropriate images of himself via his Twitter account. Around that time, Weiner admitted that he “exchanged messages and photos of an explicit nature with about six women” over the past three years.

One of the photos Weiner sent the woman displayed his underwear-clad crotch with his son Jordan sleeping next to him in bed, according to The Post. The New York Post stated Sunday that Weiner was concerned about the possibility of exposing his son to the public, an error in 2011 that he feels he may have repeated. Weiner, 51, admits to never meeting the woman in person despite giving invitations to meet him in New York.

When contacted by Post, Weiner admitted he and the woman “have been friends for some time,” but added that their conversations were “private … and were always appropriate.” Hmm…. It seems that no buns will be added to his Weiner this time around.

By: Trissean McDonald

Los Angeles, California: LRT 2nd annual music video awards took place at the #GlobeTheater August 20, 2016, from 5:30 p.m.-10:00 p.m. This award’s ceremony is specifically designated to congratulate the hard work of underground artists and/or entrepreneurs.

The environment was rather calm and composed, even though events supporting hip/hop artistry at times could impose negative scrutiny and/or stigma. With two bars on each side of the room, several people took advantage of the services. The inside of the Globe Theater reminds one of an old gothic playhouse. However, there weren’t any chairs bolted to the ground. All of the chair were fold-ups, making the atmosphere more urban to fit the theme of the night.

There was a faint odor of the ganja; nevertheless, the source wasn’t found. I’m guessing where there is hip/hop or urban music, there’s always a possibility of marijuana being present. The artists are well-known underground artists, and if you’re intrigued by underground artistry, you may know some of the individuals. Overall it was a short ceremony, with the red carpet event devouring most of the time.

Nevertheless, though the time was running short, everything still managed to run smoothly. There were several live performances in the genre of Hip/Hip, Pop, Country Rap, also including Christian urban music.

Several artists obviously took home awards that were blue in color and rectangular in shape, almost comparable to that of a jewelry box. All performances were executed nicely. Marking a conclusion, that it was definitely a night worth experiencing wonderful artistry and artists.

Trump is trumping himself 

By Trissean McDonald

It actually wasn’t ransom; however it was money that was owed to Iran since the 1970s, due to a weapon deal that the US made with Iran. Since the Iranian revolution and subsequent hostages crisis in 1979, the weapon purchase was sanctioned.

It was reported amongst the mass media in January that the Democratic administration were going to distribute the funds of $400 million back to Iran. The money was actually paid in the 1970s; however, it was frozen/withheld.

Republicans alleges that the timing of the money being paid appears ransom. Additionally presumptive republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, welcomes the uproar with falsified information claiming he actually saw America hand over a ransom of $400 million.

That information was refuted by nobody but Donald Trump himself in a tweet that read, “The plane I saw on television was the hostage plane in Geneva, Switzerland, not the plane carrying $400 million in cash going to Iran!”
