Donald Trump Tried To Get The Black Vote In The Worst State For Blacks
In an attempt to salvage his dismal numbers among African-American voters, Trump spoke outside of Milwaukee, a city with just 1% of black residents still reeling from a recent police shooting of a young black man. In true Trump nature, instead of addressing racial tension and law enforcement that disproportionately target blacks he accused Democrats of exploiting black people and called Clinton a bigot who sees "communities of color only as votes" and "not as individual human beings". Interesting.
In other Trump news, the Republican candidate switched up his campaign roles, naming Stephen Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart News and former Goldman Sachs banker, the new campaign chief executive. Kellyanne Conway also got promoted to campaign manager. Paul Manafort will stay onboard as campaign chairman. (via: NYT)
Get Ready For Lady Gaga SZN
The pop star/AHS star/"A Star Is Born" star took to Twitter and announced her new single "Perfect Illusion" will drop sometime in September. So far, we know that Mark Ronson, Tame Impala and producer BloodPop have a hand in the forthcoming album from Stefani.
Will this be the post-'Lemonade' break up album the monsters need? Will she serve less "Artpop" and more "The Fame Monster"?! LET US PRAY. (Via: Twitter)
The Ryan Lochte Robbery Story Just Got Sus
Brazil judge has issued a warrant for Ryan Lochte, James Feigen over robbery report she suspects is one big ass lie. The swimmers are ordered to give up their passports and remain in Brazil during the investigation into their police report. But oops! Feigen and Lochte have already left for the United States.
Judge Keyla Blanc pointed out the inconsistencies that poke holes in the police report of Lochte and Feigen, who claim that they and two teammates were robbed at gunpoint at about 4 a.m. outside of the Olympics village. Lochte said there had been one robber, while Feigen allegedly said there had been more than one. Blanc writes that according to the security footage the four swimmers actually got to the Olympic Village shortly before 7 a.m., leaving an unexplained time gap. Blank also notes that the swimmers appeared to be laughing and joking with each other despite the alleged crime. The U.S. swimming team said it could not confirm Lochte's or Feigen's whereabouts. The U.S. State Department released a statement encouraging "all parties to work with Brazilian law enforcement." (via: ABC)
