Donald Trump Ain’t Help Black Unemployment

*Sigh* Fuckery like this is why I box, son. I mean, it’s much better for me to hit a heavy bag than hit a stupid person, man. On the real, it’s truly frustrating to watch Donald Trump and company just mangle information, fam. Like, Trump invented the phrase “fake news,” but literally EVERYTHING that comes out of his mouth is a GROSS inaccuracy. Case in point, his take on the unemployment numbers of Black Americans. All in all, if anyone actually believes that Trump is responsible for our progress, then they’re more fraudulent than Melania Trump‘s work visa.

Ok, for those who missed it, Trump is engaged in a feud with Jay-Z. Now, Hov recently did an interview with Van Jones on CNN. This was part of Jones’s new show, the Van Jones Show. In any case, while speaking about a variety of topics, Trump’s name came up. As expected, Jay criticized 45 for his consistent nonsense. Furthermore, during a convo about unemployment, Hov said that “money doesn’t equate to happiness” and that the President fails to treat people like human beings. With all of that being said, Trump reacted as expected and let the guns go on Twitter. In a response to Jay, Trump claimed that Black unemployment is at an all-time low and we should all be thanking him.

Now, is Trump correct? Is Black unemployment at an all-time low? Well, at 6.8%, Black unemployment is the lowest it’s been in nearly five decades. Anyway, does Trump deserve credit for that? FUCK NO, SON! Good fucking Lord, is the GOP going to keep pretending like Barack Obama didn’t exist? Look, back in 2010, Black unemployment was at 16.8%. Over the next seven years, the rate consistently declined. As a matter of fact, by the time Trump entered the White House, the rate was already down to 7.8%. Meaning, during Obama’s presidency, the percentage went down by 9 points. So, Trump had literally NOTHING to do with the downward trend, man! Real talk, he doesn’t get to claim Obama’s progress, fam! Fuck ALL of that, bruh!

In the end, I have nothing else to say, son. Ultimately, I’m just tired of all of the political bullshit, man. Keeping it a buck, the only reason shit like this bothers me is because there are hoards of people who don’t know any better. Frankly, they just take anything Trump says as gospel. By and by, change will never be made in this country because truth is no longer a real concept. At the end of the day, it’s all about who can spin their story better. *Sigh* Sometimes, I just hate everything and everyone, fam. That is all. LC out.

Get Van Jones The F*ck Outta Here!

On the real, this Get (Blank) The Fuck Outta Here series is becoming way too common, man. I feel like I’m doing at least one new edition every week, son. In any case, I never thought I’d see the day when I would have to turn my crosshairs on Van Jones. The CNN-contributor has long been a vocal opponent of Donald Trump. However; after Trump’s speech on Tuesday, Jones decided to tuck his tail in between his legs. In one instant, Jones invalidated every stance he previously took. How? By insinuating that one speech could possibly change the course of Trump’s administration.

Now, Van Jones’ foolishness is baffling for a few reasons. He’s the same man who coined the phrase “Whitelash” while trying to explain why White voters backed Trump. Previously, he’s been very critical of Trump’s rhetoric and decision-making. Fast forward to Tuesday, Trump finally gave a speech in which he didn’t behave like an absolute child. All of a sudden, Jones changed his tune and said Trump “became President of the United States” after his performance. Taking it a step further, Jones praised Trump’s tribute to fallen Navy SEAL Ryan Owens. He called it “one of the most extraordinary moments you have ever seen in American politics, period.” This statement is mind-boggling because it completely negates the fact that Trump got that man killed in the first place.

Look, are we really supposed to be moved by the standing ovation for Owen’s widow, Carryn Owens? Her husband would still be alive if Trump’s administration wasn’t so poorly prepared for that raid in Yemen. Owens and an assortment of children, who no one talks about, ended up dying for outdated al-Qaeda intelligence. For example, one of the bomb-making videos recovered in that raid has been online since 2007. Was that a good enough reason for a soldier to die? I didn’t think so. Shut the fuck up, Van Jones!

Listen, Van, if you ever happen to read this, let me speak to you directly. Did Trump’s speech make you forget about Michael Flynn? Did Trump’s speech make you forget about the fact that Jeff Sessions perjured himself in regards to his contact with Russia? Did Trump’s speech make you forget that he’s trying to rewrite the Muslim Ban with newer parameters? Did Trump’s speech make you forget that Steve Bannon literally said he’s trying to “deconstruct” the administration? Man, AIN’T SHIT CHANGED! I refuse to believe that you’re THAT dumb to fall for a dude who was simply reading off of a teleprompter.

In the end, Van Jones played himself. Anytime someone loses their credibility, it’s almost impossible to get it back, son. All in all, I hope Jones has fun being a clown. Ultimately, that’s exactly what he is now. LC out.
