Politics: President Donald Trump Promised To Protect The Sick And Poor, To Give Them A ‘Better Deal’… And He Is Not… At All (Video)

Wow. Still hard to believe that we elected a U.S. President in much the same way we elected a class president in grade school – the guy that promised spaghetti and pizza for lunch and two recesses every day won… because we bought the lies. But when we did not get more pizza and play time, we lived. This VOX clip illustrates how, with Donald Trump as the ‘head of the class’ as President, many of us might suffer and DIE.

So… What folks hate about Obamacare (The Affordable Care Act) is exactly what Trumpcare (The ‘Higher Cost Care’ Act) will allow MORE of??? That’s not what ANYONE voted for, is it? IS IT?!

Just watch. It’ll make you wanna say, “I can’t…” until you realize ‘you have to’ (because the ‘Yes We Can’ guy is gone).

Sports: Floyd Mayweather And Conor McGregor Will Fight August 26th (Video)

The fans wanted to see this fight… and it will be the biggest fight ever in the history of two people punching each other.
– UFC President Dana White

Respect for the sweet science or claims of cage fighting’s supremacy aside, Dana’s probably right. This fight has plenty of haters, each of its combatants have plenty of haters, and both boxing and UFC have haters. With that much hateration – and even more folks who follow either or both Mayweather and McGregor in the nation – this is another event to net Floyd triple figures easy!

And some pretty juicy scraps for everyone else involved.

Like it or love it (and Stephen A. will tell you which L he’s taking above, hahaa)… the fight is on! Hitting pay-per-view screens in August… It’s Showtime!

Food: South L.A.’s African-American Taco Movement (Video)

Okay, you know Memphis for the barbecue and Philly for the cheesesteak… Basically, there are a lot of cities with food that reps. Check out a new food movement: South Los Angeles’ African American Tacos. Just a taste of Food Grails, a new First We Feast travel series.

Welcome to Food Grails, a new First We Feast travel series hosted by Miss Info. As a music journalist, she’s travelled the world and seen the power of artists who rep for their hometown sound. Now, she wants to discover how foods define a city’s flavor—from Atlanta’s lemon-pepper wings, to NYC’s beef patties. These are America’s food grails.
First We Feast

Learned some math: Profit from slanging tacos > profit from selling weed (wow, plus weed heads probably come through with ‘the munchies’ yo). Serious business here. Watch.

Cover Story: CEOs Elon Musk And Bob Iger Quit The President’s Advisory Councils After Trump Dumped The Paris Accord (Video)

Remember the shocking revelation that our very own ‘real life Tony Stark’ – Elon Musk – would be advising Donald Trump in the White House? We posted on that on here.

When I saw the news that Trump dumped on Musk’s advice, and pulled out of the Paris Accord, I found myself wondering, borrowing a lyric from 4-IZE, “How’d That Work Out?”

Well, Tesla CEO Musk said he’d leave the White House advisory councils on which he serves if President Trump withdrew from the Paris climate agreement. Well, Trump withdrew.
And Musk left.

So…, “How’d That Work Out?” It didn’t.

In the aftermath of withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Accord, Trump really sees no downside. He had his reasons, and he is not looking to impress folks, at all, including advisors like Musk or Robert Iger (Disney CEO, who also just resigned from his advisory role).

So, to review, the President has just lost the support of ‘real life Tony Stark’ and the CEO of the ‘Universe’ in which movie ‘Tony Stark’ lives… Plus taking the most powerful nation on the planet off the nations-try-to-save-the-world climate change team. Kinda eff’d in the sci-fi world AND real world.

Yup.

Gary Vaynerchuk Talks To John Legend About Making Big Songs, Staying Humble And More (Video)

Gary Vaynerchuk, the serial entrepreneur and CEO/Founder of VaynerMedia, talks to the world-renown “All Of Me” singer (and lucky hubby to the HOTTIE Chrissy Teigen – see how HOT here). They speak on the paradigm shift in the music industry – from physical to digital, from middlemen-driven to artist-driven – John’s career-before-music job at Boston Consulting Group. In fact, they mention that they taped this interview in the building where BCG is currently headquartered!

Hear the story John about how John left the corporate world; choosing crooning over consulting. That feels RISKY, but freeing right?

(Had to break those ‘gold handcuffs’… Wow, that’s a powerful term!)

So much other good stuff in this episode of #AskGaryVee too. Watch!
