The country lost several important people this week. Two of whom are Senator John McCain and renowned international singer and entertainer Aretha Franklin. Their collective funerals have left the nation in mourning.
Singers from across the country gathered at Franklin’s funeral to pay their respects and perform. One performer, in particular, was Ariana Grande. During her time at the funeral Grande performed a rendition of one of Franklin’s famous songs.
The Daily Wire reported,
“He’s at it again. At Aretha Franklin’s funeral service, former President Bill Clinton ogled 25-year-old Ariana Grande as she sang Carole King’s “Natural Woman.” At President Donald Trump’s inauguration, Clinton was also seen ogling Ivanka Trump, and was hilariously caught by his wife Hillary Clinton. Clinton is always prepared.”

Standard UK reported,
“Social media has erupted at a video of Bill Clinton watching Ariana Grande perform at Aretha Franklin’s funeral. Video footage of Miss Grande performing the hit (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman had social media paying more attention to Mr Clinton’s gaze, rather than Miss Grande’s vocals. Social media users criticised the former president as “gross” after his eyes appeared to wander onto Miss Grande’s derriere.
One user said: “Gross..watch Bill Clinton look Ariana Grande up and down when she sings at #ArethaFranklinFuneral and try not to throw up in your mouth.” Another wrote: “Bill Clinton is REALLY big fan of Ariana Grande.” Like Sippi said: “Bill Clinton just fell in love with Ariana Grande.”
Others however lept to Mr Clinton’s defence. One person wrote online: “How can you possibly tell where he is looking?” Ms Franklin’s funeral was attended by a whole host of influential figures, including prominent civil rights activist Reverend Al Sharpton. Mourners including Bill Clinton, Whoopi Goldberg and Stevie Wonder arrived at Franklin’s funeral at the Detroit’s Greater Grace Temple on Friday, while hundreds of fans lined the streets outside.”
The Daily Mail reported,
“Grande’s choice of funeral attire drew criticism, as the singer wore a tiny black dress with her signature ponytail along with a pair of black stilettos.
Many on Twitter in the black community felt that the choice of fashion was not traditional with the etiquette that accompanies African American homegoing services. ‘#ArianaGrande don’t know the below the knee rule for the pulpit in the black church. Somebody hand her a lap hanky and a choir robe. Bless her heart,’ tweeted one, Tenisha Taylor Bell.
‘I can’t believe she came in a black church for a black funeral dressed like this,’ said comedian and writer Crissle West.
Clinton had given a moving tribute to Franklin during her funeral in Detroit. He said he and wife Hillary, who attended the funeral with him, had long been avid fans of the soul singer. ‘We started out not as President and First Lady, but as Aretha groupies or something,’ he joked.
He said Franklin’s power to pull a crowd was: ‘Not because she had this breathtaking talent, not because she grew up a princess of soul, but because she lived with courage. Not without fear, but overcoming her fears.’ ‘She lived with faith… she lived with power. I just loved her,’ he said. ‘The secret of her greatness was she took this massive talent, and this perfect culture that raised her, and decided to be the composer of this massive song.’
Clinton could not resist throwing in a joke about Franklin’s flamboyant wardrobe, remarking: ‘I was so happy when I got here and the casket was still open, I got to think: ‘I wonder what my friend has on today’.'”
Aretha Franklin was originally from Detroit, Michigan, where she started her career as a child singing gospel music in church. When she came into adulthood, she started her professional career working with Columbia Records recording. But, her success, in the beginning, was modest in comparison to what it was in the end.
Franklin’s greatest success was in her hit songs such as “I Say a Little Prayer”, “Think”, “Respect”, “You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman”, and “I Never Loved a Man The Way I Love You.” By the time all of these songs were completed and charted Franklin was known as the Queen of Soul. All towards the end of the 1960s.
As a result of her hard work, Franklin was honored on numerous occasions with different awards. In 1987 she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She was the first woman performer to be inducted.
As well, she also received the National Medal of Arts and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Almost 15 years ago, Franklin was placed into the UK Music Hall of Fame and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2012. On several occasions, she was named one of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time. Ultimately, being ranked as number one singer of all time by the Rolling Stones magazine.
Here’s Bill Clinton while Grande performs.

Kurt Russel SHOWED Overpaid Celebs To Shut Up About Trump – Hits Them Where It Hurts!
Since the second that Donald Trump was declared as our next president, liberals have not stopped complaining about the outcome, even after more than a year with him in the White House. The despicable display reached the height of annoyance during every ego-stroking awards ceremony since President Trump was elected. All have turned into a Trump-trashing session for pissed of celebrities to get far too much off their chest about our unapologetic leader.
However, not everyone in Hollywood shares the same opinion as the most outspoken offender, Meryl Streep, as Kurt Russell just showed her and all of Trump’s other famous foes that it’s time to shut up about our president.
If you haven’t heard much from Russell lately, it’s because he falls into the rare category of celebrities who isn’t crying over Hillary Clinton’s loss and doesn’t feel that he needs to make his political opinions known. He’s simply doing what he’s paid well to do and wishes others in the biz would too. Since they continue to throw tantrums and trash Trump on a public stage, Russell reached his breaking point and finally fired back hard.
Should President Trump shut the border down now with no more warnings about it or delay?

“This is a business that’s heavily promulgated by people who have a politically liberal bent,” Russell began in his blistering beratement of these overpaid crybabies after what Streep said at the Golden Globes. “I don’t begrudge them that. I’m a libertarian; frankly, I think my liberalness goes far beyond theirs in a lot of ways,” he added, as reported by the American Lookout. “But yeah, we think differently, and maybe that’s cut me out of some things. I don’t care,” he said before dropping a brutal announcement on these Streep and her lemmings that left them burning.

Explaining that they’re not empowered in this business by their disgraceful attitudes against our leaders, the badass actor said they better be prepared to put their money where their nasty mouths are since they could be out of work. “People know I get along great with all kinds of directors, all kinds of actors. And I tell you, you hire me, I will show up, 24/7, and I will give you 100%. I will help you fix whatever problems come up. You hire me, I’m your boy. It’s just, it’s all about the work. And when that’s done, I am done.”
Kurt has said recently that “the last thing I like to watch is entertainers or actors get political,” which he just proved by clearly pointing out that nobody cares what celebrities have to say about politics, and that their obnoxious behavior only shows how unemployable they are. They need to just stick to what they are overpaid to do and leave the rest to the adults in charge.
Real American Tom Selleck Has Had Enough Of Rosie Trashing Trump, Hits Her Where It Hurts
Rosie O’Donnell tends to stick her foot in her mouth every time she opens it. It’s as if her foot was metal, and her mouth is a magnet. I guess it’s better than having her head shove where the sun doesn’t shine. It’s no surprise that O’Donnell is as far left as they come. She has made many inflammatory remarks on subjects she really doesn’t have a clue about. You can only imagine what her morning routine must be like. Waking up, pissed off looking in the mirror and pointing at herself ” You can do it, Rosie, Republicans are the enemy, You’re a Goddess”. I’ve got news for Rosie, there isn’t a bone in my body that thinks you’re a Goddess.
Day after day, night after night Rosie takes to Twitter and attacks President Trump, as well as his 62 million supporters.

I think it’s time Rosie is locked up in a mental hospital for a very long time because this woman is beyond couch time. No therapist can handle the insanity this woman spews. Rosie, along with 99% of Hollywood are all on the same brain wave, and it’s scary. It’s no surprise Kanye West had a mental breakdown. If I lived in Hollywood I would probably do the same.
The now-canceled “Rosie O’Donnell Show” on NBC allowed Rosie to tell the world just how biased, and hateful she was as a person. It’s no surprise that Rosie’s show was canceled. The saying goes that if you live in Hollywood you can’t be a Conservative or a Gun owner. I think Tom Selleck found that out the hard way. Selleck appeared on the show once to talk about his new movie that was about to hit the big screen. Instead of talking about the show, Rosie decided to corner, and interrogate Mr. Selleck for appearing in an NRA commercial.
Via Capitalist Magazine:
In left-leaning Hollywood, one could more safely come out of the closet and admit to child molestation than a support of the Second Amendment. For Selleck’s colossal sin of being in Hollywood and conservative, the “Queen of Nice” jumped on Selleck the way Jeffrey Dahmer attacks a Chateaubriand.
O’Donnell: “But you can’t say that guns don’t bear responsibility. … Why would the NRA be against assault rifles? This is a gun that can shoot five bullets in a second. This is the gun that those boys brought into the school. Why the NRA doesn’t say as a matter of compromise: ‘We agree. Assault weapons are not good.’”
Selleck: “I can’t speak for the NRA –”
O’Donnell: “But you’re their spokesperson, Tom. You have to be responsible for what they say.”
Selleck: “I’m not a spokesperson –”
O’Donnell: “… But you can’t say that ‘I will not take responsibility for anything the NRA represents’ if you’re saying that you’re gonna do an ad for the NRA.”
Selleck: “… You’re carefully skirting the issue. It’s an act of moral vanity, Rosie, to assume that someone who disagrees with your political agenda to solve our problems cares any less or is any less –”
O’Donnell: “I never said you cared less. Tom, I don’t think you care less. Nor do I think the men in the NRA cared less. … I simply said, why can there not be a compromise?”
Selleck: “There is a compromise. There’s a compromise in enforcing laws, there’s a compromise in not allowing kids with guns in schools. The problem is, and what you don’t seem to realize. … Look, we all hang out with people we agree with, and you have a very one-sided view of the fact, but what you don’t understand –”
O’Donnell: “As does the NRA, and the people you hang out within the NRA have a one-sided view, as well.”
Had O’Donnell allowed him to speak, Selleck might have mentioned that people use guns perhaps as often as 1 million times per year for defensive purposes, undoubtedly preventing large numbers of murders.
Selleck might have said that Scotland and Ireland, countries with tough gun laws, have higher murder rates than the United States. Or that Switzerland, with a per-capita gun ownership higher than ours, has a lower murder rate.
Or that studies show that a woman who resists her attacker with a gun stands a better chance of avoiding injury or death. Or that convicted felons, when polled, say they are less likely to attack an armed person or enter a house where a gun is present. Or that Rosie O’Donnell does commercials for K-Mart, where one can purchase a rifle.
A piece of work, emotional liberals. – Capitalist Magazine
The NRA has been attacked for years for standing up to the Federal Government and making sure our Second Amendment rights are protected. There is no greater cause by the left than the one to take our Gun Rights away. The progressives know that as long as we keep in bare arms they can not control our lives like they want. Over the last four decades they have slowly started to disarm us, but with the election of Donald J. Trump, their efforts have failed. President Trump spoke at the National NRA Convention in Dallas, Texas this week. It’s nice to see someone in high office standing up for the rights given to us by God.
