Well barnacles, if the politically-qualified Rihanna doesn’t like President Trump, clearly none of us should either! After all, she has some really good points, guys. Like, hating on individuals who support our Second Amendment rights, but ensuring her armed guards are glued to her hip.
OR how ‘bout advocating for mental health awareness while mocking that Trump must be mentally ill…
“When the subject of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton come up, Rihanna talks Trump because he said the shooting happened due to mental illness while not discussing gun control.
‘It is devastating,’ she said. ‘People are being murdered by war weapons that they legally purchase. This is just not normal. That should never, ever be normal.”
*Raises Hand* Uhm. People die in vastly higher numbers from car crashes than by guns… which are also bought legally… but you don’t see us discussing car control. What about spoons making people fat? Spoon control, anyone? I’ll sit back down.
I don’t know about y’all, but I’d much rather embrace my rights to protect myself how I see fit with a weapon I know will put me at a fair advantage, irrespective of others abusing that right. If others willingly abuse that right, WHETHER IT’S LEGAL OR ILLEGAL TO PURCHASE SAID WEAPONRY (BECAUSE CRIMINALS WILL FIND A WAY – HENCE CRIMINALS), I should always have the right to protect and fight back accordingly.
Then she so articulately continues –
“’And the fact that it’s classified as something different because of the color of their skin? It’s a slap in the face. It’s completely racist.’
She goes on: ‘Put an Arab man with that same weapon in that same Walmart and there is no way that Trump would sit there and address it publicly as a mental health problem.
‘The most mentally ill human being in America right now seems to be the president.’”
I may not have 20/20 vision but I can spot bullsh*t when I see it.
Pretty sure the Arab man with a weapon and intention to kill in a Wal-Mart is the bigger issue here… regardless of being Arab… so who’s really being racist?
There’s a difference between someone of color shouting “ALLAH” when committing murders, as opposed to a person of color being mentally ill and murdering people. I think it’s pretty clear to spot the non-racism here. But yeah, let’s get all stir-crazy about someone of color murdering people… and blame the president for racism…
HELLOOOOO! THE PERSON IS MURDERING, FOR GOODNESS SAKE! WHO GIVES A RATS ARSE ABOUT WHAT COLOR HE OR SHE IS!
Not gonna lie, I think she’s very talented and her makeup/fashion line is beautiful – and whatever else she dabbles in. However, politics shouldn’t be one of those things. Everyone has their opinions but some opinions are just plain stupid and logically inconsistent.
So really, the big takeaway is she doesn’t like Trump and her ninth album will be released soon. You’re welcome.
