Chris Matthews: Another One Bites The Dust

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’ve always thought that Chris Matthews and Bill O’Reilly were the same person. I mean, they’re both loudmouthed and opinionated political commentators who refuse to let their guests speak. In addition, MSNBC and Fox News are essentially two sides of the same coin. With all of that being said, I’m not in the least bit surprised that Matthews and O’Reilly also have sexual harassment in common. All in all, the Me Too movement has officially gotten another member of the press the fuck outta here.

Ok, for those who missed it, after hosting Hardball with Chris Matthews since 1997, Matthews abruptly resigned on air. Side note, I’m using the word “resigned” loosely, son. In actuality, MSNBC told him to go kick rocks, man. Now, despite engaging in copious amounts of fuckery (such as likening Bernie Sanders‘ movement to the Nazi invasion of France), Matthews’ comments about women are what got his ass in trouble. Apparently, he’s been saying all manners of tomfoolery to women for years.

Now, things came to a head when Laura Bassett, a writer for GQ, detailed her experience with Matthews. As the story goes, she decided to speak up after she saw how Matthews talked to Elizabeth Warren on-air. From there, Bassett described a situation from 2016 where Matthews repeatedly made comments about Bassett’s attractiveness and wanting to fall in love with her. Needless to say, she ain’t like any of that shit, fam. In any case, Bassett isn’t the first woman to allege that Matthews has said some fuckity-fuck shit to them. All I can say is, this seems to have been a pattern for eons, bruh. Side note, he once made a joke about giving Hillary Clinton a “Bill Cosby pill” before an interview. Yeeeeah, that’s not something that should ever be said, brethren.

Moving on, after all of the stories (and to the surprise of his co-hosts), Matthews quit his show on live television. All I know is, we can add his name to the likes of O’Reilly, Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose who’ve had to bend the knee to their own shenanigans. Once again, I don’t understand why this behavior is even an issue, son. Like, is it really that hard to determine if a woman is open to advances? For God‘s sake, why is this so hard for some dudes to understand? The way I see it, there is NO reason for most of these cats to get caught up in the bullshit that they do. *Sigh* Another one bites the dust, man.

In the end, I can’t necessarily say that I’ll miss Chris Matthews. Ultimately, I feel like he’s another symptom of the machine, bruh. By and by, I may watch cable news, but I take everything with a grain of salt, son. At the end of the day, I don’t need “journalists” to explain the news to me. Just tell me what happened and let me come to my own conclusion, man. Also, fellow men, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: find women who are actually interested. Don’t say “nice tits,” Michael Bloomberg. Don’t prematurely confess “love,” Chris Matthews. *Sigh* Knock the goofy shit off, people. That is all. LC out.

Good Riddance, Harvey Weinstein

So, here we are, son. After all of the kerfuffle, Harvey Weinstein was actually found guilty of something. Now, he may have skated on a couple of the more serious charges, but he’s officially been convicted of rape. All in all, this is a major moment for the Me Too and Time’s Up movements. I mean, when women started outing predators for their grotesque behavior, Weinstein was one of the creeps at the top of the list. With that being said, he’s finally being held (partially) responsible for his crimes.

Ok, for those who missed it, the hammer came down on Harvey Weinstein. Now, after five days of deliberation, a jury found him guilty of rape in the third degree and committing a criminal sexual act in the first degree. However, he was acquitted of rape in the first degree and predatory sexual assault. Anyway, from what I understand, the jury believed that he raped Jessica Mann and assaulted Mimi Haley. But, by definition, rape in the first degree requires “forcible compulsion,” which is somehow different from other forms of nonconsensual sex. Side bar, if the sex is nonconsensual, doesn’t that already make it “forcible?” Like, I’m no lawyer but that just makes sense to me, man. In any case, Weinstein now faces a possible prison term of five to 25 years. The way I see it, the court probably won’t go easy on him with the sentencing, fam.

Moving on, this case is another example of the “chickens coming home to roost” for notorious predators. Hell, back in 2018, the justice system got Bill Cosby the fuck up outta here. Side bar, I’m not even remotely surprised that Cosby is out here defending Weinstein, bruh. *Sigh* I guess rapists have to stick together, son. All I know is, I’m tired of getting messages from Cosby’s handlers. Fam, just tell Pudding Man to shut the fuck up and finish his sentence. In addition, where are all of the “woke” people on their “they’re only coming for Black celebrities” shit? Yeah, Weinstein was found guilty just like Cosby. So, let’s just worry about putting ALL of the rapists away and leave race out of this, man.

In the end, good riddance to Harvey Weinstein. Ultimately, he coasted for way too long, bruh. By and by, I hope the rest of these offenders are sweating bullets right now. At the end of the day, there’s no place for this type of abuse, son. For all of my dudes out there, just find people who actually want to fuck, man. It really isn’t that hard, folks. We’re (mostly) all sexual creatures. So, go bump uglies with somebody who actually wants it, brethren. That is all. LC out.

Jussie Smollett Is Still Taking L’s

So, let’s be real, son. At this point, we all know about Jussie Smollett‘s fuckity-mcfuckery. Shit, I’ve written about it on multiple occasions, man. In any case, right when Smollett thought it was safe to come outside, the city of Chicago is back on his ass. All I know is, after Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx let him skate, the rest of the city couldn’t WAIT to hem him up again, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it (or don’t care), Dan K. Webb, from the Office of the Special Prosecutor, filed six new charges against Smollett. Now, according to reports, Smollett is being hit with felony disorderly conduct charges, stemming from his faux hate crime in January of last year. Apparently, the authorities were never satisfied with letting Smollett walk, especially since this story originally garnered so much attention.

Now, I won’t lie, bruh. On the real, I always felt like there should be some retribution against Smollett. Hell, I was one of the dummies who actually fell for his shenanigans, son. I mean, even though the tale seemed outlandish, I didn’t want to believe that someone in his position would make up such a fantastical story. Anyway, once I learned that he was full of shit, I was absolutely onboard with him getting prosecuted. Frankly, Smollett shamelessly exploited the true victims of racist and homophobic attacks, man. The way I see it, there HAS to be some punishment in a situation like that.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say here, fam. Ultimately, Smollett’s tomfoolery is the gift that keeps on giving, bruh. By and by, I really hope he understands the magnitude of his stupidity, brethren. Like, not only did he fuck up his career, but more importantly, he gave a black eye to a movement designed to stop violence against the minority and LGBTQ communities. At the end of the day, extra lines on Empire weren’t worth the buffoonery, son. That is all. LC out.

Pick A Beef, Tariq St. Patrick

Disclaimer: Folks know the drill. Copious amounts of spoilers out here, son.

So, here we are, man. All in all, Power has come to an end and we finally know who killed James St. Patrick. Now, I won’t lie, fam. On the real, I knew who the culprit was all along, bruh. Shit, I’m pretty sure that most of us knew who the culprit was the entire time, son. In any case, after years of being an ungrateful little bastard, it was finally revealed that Tariq St. Patrick, Ghost‘s son and the most annoying character on television, killed his father. All I know is, Tariq’s beef with Ghost never made any fucking sense, people. With that being said, none of his real intentions were cleared up in that final episode.

Look, here’s my issue with Tariq, man. Ok, on face value, I can completely understand a child being upset with their parent for leaving the family. In that case, Tariq has the right to feel a way about Ghost leaving Tasha St. Patrick for Angela Valdes. But, somehow, that resentment led him to a (comical) life of crime and declarations that Ghost “never did anything for [him].” Oh, so I guess living in a penthouse and going to the best schools don’t count. I guess having a carefree life away from the perils that his parents endured doesn’t count. Real talk, this little shit-head never faced any real adversity until he realized that his father loved another woman. *Sigh* In the spirit of Rico from Paid In Full, folks “[get divorced] everyday, B.”

Now, my problem with Tariq’s motive came to a head in this final episode. Listen, right before he shoots Ghost, he says “I wish I could go back, to before you left us for Angela.” So, what’s the real issue, Tariq? Was Ghost always an absentee father (as he falsely claimed), or is Tariq just being a fuckity-fuck because his dad left his mom for a woman who wanted more than a drug dealer’s life. Side note, I never banged with Tasha or Angela, but Tasha couldn’t see past the fucking block, fam. Anyway, the fact of the matter is, Tariq isn’t even sure why he hates his father so much. Regardless, he ends up being the one to take Ghost out of the game.

In the end, Starz can miss me with these Power spinoffs, bruh. Ultimately, if cats like Tasha and Tariq are prominent characters, then I’m ALL of the way out, son. By and by, why would I watch another show with personalities that I can’t fucking stand, man? At the end of the day, Tommy Egan was the only real one on the show. Problem is, he’s dumber than Lloyd Christmas, fam. *Sigh* This show ended up being preposterous, brethren. That is all. LC out.

P.S. Tasha’s fate is hilarious, son. Look, I guess prison is the price to pay for being a shitty ass mother, man. Hell, “teaching Tariq the game” didn’t work out so well, did it? Frankly, Ghost wasn’t shit, but everyone should’ve just let him run off with Angela from the beginning. The way I see it, he would’ve taken care of everyone with those clubs, fam. Alas, pride cometh before the fall, bruh. Good day.

Conversations With Randi B.: Tyler Perry

So, I know what some people may be thinking, son: two posts in one day? What’s really good, LC? Well, the truth is, this may be a thing going forward. Basically, anytime I sit-in on Randi B.‘s podcast, I’m going to write a quick post about it. As of right now, it’s looking she’s going to drop that new fuego on Friday‘s. With that being said, I might have to double up on my posts during those days. Either way, good content is good content, man.

Anyway, on the latest episode, Randi and I chop it up about all things Tyler Perry (in addition to other topics). So, what else needs to be said, fam? Enjoy, share and comment! That is all. LC out.

I Understand Will Smith’s Beef With Tupac

So, to cut to the chase, I understand Will Smith, son. I mean, if my wife was as close to another dude as Jada Pinkett Smith was to Tupac Shakur, I’d have a couple of eyebrows raised too. With that being said, it was pretty dope for Smith to show that level of transparency, man. All in all, I wonder how everyone else would REALLY react if they were in his shoes. The way I see it, I feel like a lot of people would’ve wanted to engage in some fisticuffs, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Smith and Martin Lawrence are currently doing a press run for their new movie, Bad Boys for Life. Now, during a sit-down with Power 105.1‘s The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne Tha God asked Smith about his wife’s relationship with Shakur. To be more specific, he asked Smith if he was ever jealous of Jada’s friendship with Tupac. In response, Smith said “fuck yeah.” Taking it a step further, Smith admitted that despite the fact that Jada and Shakur weren’t physical, he was insecure about the love that they had for each other. In fact, he stated that he could never bring himself to be cool with Tupac because he couldn’t handle the bond between the two of them.

Now, look, I try my best to be a progressive dude, but fuck all that, bruh. Ok, yes, Jada and Tupac apparently never had sex with each other. However, that wasn’t for a lack of trying, son. Real talk, Jada already copped to the fact that her and Tupac kissed before. Yeah, she also said that they didn’t have any “sexual chemistry,” but I’m not rolling, man. Listen, I just have a hard time believing that they were as platonic as Jada makes it seem, fam. In my eyes, they were probably one drunken night away from rocking each other’s bells, bruh.

To be clear, I wholeheartedly believe that men and women can just be friends. On the real, I’m friends with a good number of women that I would never touch, son. Side note, that used to be a source of contention between my wife and I early in our relationship. Frankly, she struggled to believe that I wasn’t just trying to smash everyone. But, alas, no lines have been crossed, man. Anyway, if Jada and Tupac ever saw one another in the right light, even for a second, Will would be a distant fucking memory, fam. So, I completely understand his hesitation to get close to Tupac.

In the end, I’m sure there are people out there who will disagree with me, bruh. Ultimately, we’ll never know how that story would’ve turned out, son. By and by, maybe things were exactly like Jada said and there would’ve been no issue. Then again, maybe Tupac would’ve cashed in on their love and taken Jada from the “soft rapper.” At the end of the day, my Spidey-Sense says that Smith was right for keeping Tupac at arms-length, man. Shit, based on the way that he was wilin’ back then, who knows what Shakur might’ve done, fam. That is all. LC out.

‘Power’ Recap: Paz Is The Dumbest Motherf*cker Ever

Disclaimer: I’m sure everybody understands how spoilers work, son. Act accordingly.

So, despite the fact that I’ve seen every single episode of Power, I believe that I’ve only written about the show twice. Side bar, in both cases, I was busy cursing out Tariq St. Patrick. In any case, last night’s episode was so preposterous, I felt obligated to talk about it, son. With that being said, let’s get into all of Paz Valdes‘ unscrupulous shenanigans.

Ok, before I even continue, let me make one thing clear, man. Real talk, NOBODY asked for a Paz Valdes episode, fam. Like, who gives a flying fuckity-fuck about Angela Valdes‘ sister, bruh? Shit, I barely gave a fuck about Angela, son. So, why would the team at Starz dedicate an entire hour to this doof of a woman? All I know is, NOTHING she does in this episode makes sense, people. So, let’s talk about some of her tomfoolery.

To begin, despite the fact that EVERY law enforcement agency has advised her that James St. Patrick didn’t kill Angela, Paz is still on a kamikaze mission. Now, since she’s hell-bent on bringing Ghost down, she makes several idiotic moves. First, she goes to Ghost‘s club and tries to get him to confess on tape. When that doesn’t work, she turns over incriminating evidence against her sister with the hope that it’ll bring down Ghost too. When that doesn’t work, she tries to convince Tommy Egan to kill Ghost, which is hilarious because Egan is the one who ACTUALLY killed Angela. Finally, after ensuring that her family will never get Angela’s pension, Paz turns down the money left in Ghost’s will. Meaning, her son and her father will continue to suffer under the weight of poverty.

Furthermore, the believability of this show continues to be nonexistent, man. Am I really supposed to believe that Paz would be able to sneak a gun into Ghost’s club? Especially since he’s running for Lieutenant Governor of New York? Man, if y’all don’t knock it the fuck off, fam. Keeping it a buck, Power stopped being realistic after Kanan Stark miraculously made it out of a burning building. Since then, the dialogue has been trash and the plot has been ridiculous. The truth is, I’m only watching the show because I need to finish what I started, bruh. At this point, I’m too far in to stop now, brethren. Side note, there’s a sexual pun in there, but I’ll just leave that in the air.

In the end, miss me with the Paz Valdes stupidity. Ultimately, no one needed this episode, son. By and by, Angela wasn’t as innocent as Paz likes to think she was. At the end of the day, Angela was a willing participant in Ghost’s nefarious activities. So, she got herself in the middle of some shit she had no business being in. From there, the streets did what the streets do, man. All I can say is, good riddance to the entire Valdes family, fam. That is all. LC out.
