President Trump is known for putting his opinions out there without fear of what people think of him. Which is something that often leaves him open to heckling and criticism. Especially, within the entertainment community.
This is why the latest comedy show topic in Los Angeles, California should not shock you in the least. Trump haters in Hollywood are a dime a dozen. But apparently, a lot of people think that it is a good way to sell tickets.
The Daily Mail reported,
“Over a dozen angry fans walked out or were kicked out of comedian Wanda Sykes’ show in New Jersey for heckling her after she opened her set with a string of jokes about President Donald Trump. Sykes kicked off the show at the Count Basie Center for the Arts on Thursday in Red Bank by making fun of how the public appears to be aging more quickly from stress caused by the Trump administration.
The Asbury Park Press reported that about a dozen attendees walked out of the auditorium, some of them having been forcibly removed for heckling the liberal comedian, 54. ‘Do some comedy!’ one attendee is said to have shouted at the Sykes, while another reportedly yelled: ‘Too political!’ Many of those who exited in protest were seen arguing with staff members in the lobby afterward.
‘I paid for a comedy show, not for a political venue,’ Christine Delancey of Old Bridge told the Asbury Park Press. ‘First of all, you don’t bash our president. I am not a Trump supporter, but he is my president, and I would never bash my president.’ Audience members who stuck around for the rest of the show have said it was enjoyable overall, and that attendees should have expected jokes at the president’s expense.
Bunch of people heckled @iamwandasykes at her Count Basie Theatre for doing a significant amount of material about our…current political climate.
Her response: “What do you expect? I’m a black lesbian.”

‘You knew what you were gonna get. You should have known that it wasn’t going to be pro-Trump,’ Gabby Young of Brick said. Sykes posted about the appearance on Instagram, writing: Thank you #CountBasieTheatre! I love my fans. And a special thanks to those who participated in the VIP meet n greet. The proceeds will be going to #FulfillFoodBank @fulfill_nj. ‘As for the Trump supporters who walked out…too bad, you missed a lot of great dick jokes! #idontplay #blacklesbian.'”
Fox News reported,
“Wanda Syke’s jokes fell flat with some of her fans. Over a dozen angry audience members walked out or were kicked out of Sykes’ show in New Jersey on Thursday for heckling her when she opened with a series of jokes about President Donald Trump.

“Do some comedy!” one attendee shouted at Skyes, according to the outlet. Another reportedly yelled, “Too political!” About a dozen attendees walked out and began to argue with one another and staff in the lobby. Attendees who stayed at the show say that it was enjoyable and that attendees should have expected jokes at the president’s expense. “I paid for a comedy show, not for a political venue,” Christine Delancey of Old Bridge told the Asbury Park Press. “First of all, you don’t bash our president.

However, other audience members felt attendees should have known they were in for a politically charged performance as Sykes is vocal about her opinions. “You knew what you were gonna get. You should have known that it wasn’t going to be pro-Trump,” Gabby Young of Brick told the outlet. Theater staff declined to comment.”
Sykes is an actress, writer, as well as a comedian who is most well known for her writing work for The Chris Rock Show which led to her first Primetime Emmy Award win in 1999. Over 15 years ago, Entertainment Weekly named her as one of the 25 Funniest People in American in part because of her well-known performances as Barb Baran on CBS’ The New Adventures of the Old Christine as well as on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm.
She has been very active over the past 20 years appearing in films such as Monster-in-Law, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, and Evan Almighty. As well as, License to Wed, the Ice Age series, Brother Bear 2, and Over the Hedge. Most of which are comedies. However, she is also known for her partisan politics.
In the past, she has expressed support for gay marriage and opposition to Proposition 8 in California. She has done this while simultaneously campaigning for PETA against anti-chaining legislation. Now she focuses her efforts on anti-Trump work.

NYC To Allow Public School Students To Change Their Gender & Name Without Documentation
New York City is going further and further down the sewer hole these days. Public school students can now change their gender status on school records without any legal documentation and play for the sports teams of their preference, the Department of Education has announced. They have to have permission from their parents to do so but it is usually the parents who encourage this confusion and twisted sickness to begin with. In New York City it no longer matters what your birth certificate says.
“Schools are safe havens for students to develop their passions and discover their true identities, and these new guidelines celebrate and affirm all students,” said Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza in a statement. “This Pride Month, I’m thrilled to send a clear message to our students — we celebrate you, we respect you, and we support you.” Pushing perversion in public schools has become mainstream – parents are forewarned.
From The New York Post:
“After submitting a newly created “name and gender change request form,” all school-related documents and data — including report cards, diplomas, and enrollment numbers — will reflect the requested designations.
“With this updated policy, which allows students to change their name and gender on school records without legal documentation, we are signaling our support for all students regardless of gender identity,” City Council Speaker Corey Johnson said in a statement celebrating the changes.
“Kids and their families will also be able to self-report names and genders when enrolling in a DOE school.
“The regulations will permanently modify how schools calculate their demographics. Instead of tabulating gender numbers through birth certificates, administrators will now rely on self-reported information.
“The rule is part of a larger set of new DOE initiatives aimed at minimizing gender-specific practices inside city classrooms.
“Schools will now be barred from tailoring any uniforms — including graduation gowns — to gender.
“School dress codes must be … free of gender stereotypes and must be written, enforced, and applied equally to all students regardless of gender,” the DOE said.
“The new dress code rules will help ease “the trauma that can be unintentionally inflicted on girls, trans, and gender-nonconforming youth, particularly youth of color, by the uneven application and enforcement of dress codes,” Councilman Mark Treyger said in a statement.
“Dividing sex-ed classes by gender has now also been officially prohibited in city schools, according to the DOE.
“These new guidelines additionally specify that puberty education classes must be inclusive and affirming to all genders, gender identities, and sexual orientations, and use gender-inclusive language throughout,” the department said.
“The DOE added that LGBTQ-related subject matters will become mandatory for all city kids so that “multiple forms of diversity, including gender and sexual orientation, are recognized, understood, and regarded as indispensable sources of knowledge for rigorous teaching and learning,” the DOE said.
“New York City is proud to be leading on policies that allow New Yorkers across the gender spectrum to be themselves in every single area of their lives, especially our schools,” First Lady Chirlane McCray said in a statement.”
This means that children in public schools in NYC will be forced to learn about gay sex and all that it entails. Sex ed will also ramp up even more much to the chagrin of most parents. This is the deliberate destruction of morality and the family unit – the communists must be delighted with this development.
Doesn’t the national Department of Education have sway over the state chapters? This is sheer insanity and should not be allowed. This is not ‘inclusive’ – it’s deranged.
TOO LATE: Starbucks Apologizes For Barista Kicking Cops Out Of AZ Coffee Shop
I think we all can say its a little too late now for an apology. Starbucks is overrated and overpriced for crappy coffee.
If you are uncomfortable around police officers..are you wanted? I for one feel very comfortable when I see the police around. Whiny Starbucks Baristas need to grow up and show some respect.
Apologies mean nothing.
Via The Daily Wire:
A corporate spokesperson for Starbucks issued a full apology Sunday after news of an incident in one of the coffee chain’s Arizona outlets went viral.
On Saturday, The Daily Wire’s Ashe Schow reported that a barista at a Starbucks in Tempe, Arizona, asked several police officers, who get coffee at the shop regularly, to move out of a customer’s line of sight or leave the premises, claiming that the mere presence of several law enforcement officials made the customer “not feel safe.”
On Twitter, the Tempe Officers Association — a police union — wrote about the incident on Friday and included a mock image of the Starbucks logo that showed a hand pouring out a cup of coffee with the words “Dump Starbucks” circling the image.
“Don’t appreciate @Starbucks asking our #Tempe cops to leave your establishment on the #4thofjuly2019. Several of those cops are #veterans who fought for this country! #ZeroRespect,” the union wrote.
A second statement, posted to the Tempe Officers Association’s Facebook page, fleshed out the incident, adding that, “[t]he barista said that a customer ‘did not feel safe’ because of the police presence. The barista asked the officers to move out of the customer’s line of sight or to leave.”
“Disappointed,” the union added, “the officers did in fact leave.”
The Tempe Police Department later said, in a statement from their public relations department, that they’d reached out to Starbucks’s corporate office and that Starbucks was aware of the incident. On Sunday, according to NPR, a representative from the Tempe Police Department met with members of Starbucks’ leadership team and the company issued an official apology.
Dear Chief Moir and the entire Tempe Police Department,
Thank you, Chief Moir, for the conversation today. On behalf of Starbucks, I want to sincerely apologize to you all for the experience that six of your officers had in our store on July 4.
When those officers entered the store and a customer raised a concern over their presence, they should have been welcomed and treated with dignity and the utmost respect by our partners (employees). Instead, they were made to feel unwelcome and disrespected, which is completely unacceptable.
At Starbucks, we have deep appreciation for your department and the officers who serve the Tempe community. Our partners rely on your service and welcome your presence, which keeps our stores and the community a safe and welcoming place. Continue Reading
