Comic George Lopez was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd. We’re told the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball. An attendee at the event — where tables sold from $5,000 to $100,000 to benefit the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes — commented on a YouTube video that “George was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in the front row [Maffei] who just donated $250K.” But “George doesn’t, continues. Gets booed.” We’re told that Lopez responded to Maffei, “Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men.” Trying to recover and sensing the audience turn, Lopez said, “Listen, it’s about the kids . . . I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America — it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege.” We’re told Lopez also told a joke about Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, saying, “I guess you can get some Mexicans to do it cheaper and they wouldn’t crush the tunnels underneath.” When the audience did not respond well, he quipped, “Are you El Chapo people?” in reference to the drug kingpin who has used tunnels to evade authorities. Lopez then announced a video segment — but he did not return to the stage, and a local newscaster took over the hosting duties. TV host Chris Parente posted on Twitter, “big controversy: host of HUGE charity #CarouselBall, @georgelopez, makes political comments about Trump, drops f-bomb and is escorted out.” But a source close to the comedian insisted to Page Six that Lopez’s segment was “only supposed to be four minutes,” even though he was listed as the night’s emcee. Lenny Kravitz performed at the gala, which raised $1.65 million. Reps had no comment.
And who exactly is the real racist here? It’s George Lopez. Here he is, a man who has a net worth of over $35 MILLION talking about “white privilege?” Then, of course, he had to make Mexican jokes intended as a jab at Trump, after he had already been asked to nicely avoid such topics as it wasn’t the right place/time. And, then to make matters worse, he takes a swipe at the guy in the front row who just donated $250K to charity?!?! Wow.. what an ass! George is your poster child of an extreme liberal, self-righteous, out-of-touch, HollyWEIRD elitist who just doesn’t get it…even when he’s beeing booed off the stage. Moron..
The Trump administration announced late Thursday that it has concluded it can no longer legally make critical Obamacare “cost-sharing” payments and will cut them off, dealing another blow to the struggling 2010 health law. The payments had specifically been denied by Congress but President Obama had made them anyway, drawing a rebuke from a court who said he was overstepping his powers. The case has raged for months, and both the Obama and Trump administrations had continued making payments — until now. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, in a statement, said the Justice Department has concluded the judge’s ruling is correct, and there is no valid legal ability to make the payments. “The bailout of insurance companies through these unlawful payments is yet another example of how the previous administration abused taxpayer dollars and skirted the law to prop up a broken system,” Mrs. Sanders said. “Congress needs to repeal and replace the disastrous Obamacare law and provide real relief to the American people.” The White House statement doesn’t explicitly say Mr. Trump won’t make the payments anymore, but a Justice Department statement said the agencies responsible for them “have decided not to spend money to fund those payments.” The cost-sharing payments go to insurance companies to pay for reimbursements for low-income customers’ out-of-pocket costs. Without the payments, insurers have said they would jack up premiums, which would further upend the already shaky economic underpinning the Affordable Care Act. The move comes just hours after Mr. Trump signed an executive order pushing his administration to allow association health plans, which would allow individuals and small businesses to join up and purchase insurance on the group market across state lines.
This was exactly the right, constitutionally sound, move on the part of the Trump White House. Obama had illegally raided the U.S. Treasury, and got slapped down by a federal court which found his actions unconstitutional, and actually a violation of ObamaCare itself! So, Pres. Trump was exactly right for doing this, and sending it back to Congress, which is how it’s supposed to work. Kudos to Pres. Trump for following the actual Constitution! Imagine that..

A man who was shot in the leg during the concert attack in Las Vegas said he could not see himself lying in bed as President Donald Trump toured the hospital and so he painstakingly stood to shake the president’s hand when the two finally met. Thomas Gunderson, a member of the audience at the fateful concert that became the target of the Las Vegas killer, was hit in the leg that terrible Sunday night. But he said he thought it was disrespectful not to stand to greet the president and first lady. The amazing video shows Gunderson painfully rising to shake hands with First Lady Melania Trump as she entered his hospital room at University Medical Center in Las Vegas. The first lady pleads for him not to get up, but Gunderson was undeterred. The wounded man then stood a second time when the president entered to shake hands. “Hey, this guy looks tough to me,” the president said as he shook the shooting victim’s hand. The California man posted his video to Facebook explaining, “I will never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake my hand!” “There may be plenty of issues in this country, but I will always respect my country, my president, and my flag. Shot in the leg or not, I will stand to show my President the respect he deserves!” Gunderson added. Gunderson is clearly a Trump fan for on the patient info whiteboard in his room he wrote “#MAGA” under the section reading, “what’s important to me.” Trump later told reporters, “I just met some of the most amazing people. We met patients that were absolutely terribly wounded.” “The doctors, the nurses – all of the people at the hospital have done a job that’s indescribable,” the president said.
