Stop Hating Trump For Dumb Reasons When You Could Hate Him For Great(er) Reasons

There's plenty of genuine reasons to hate him, trust me.

Ever since Trump came into the intense political arena announcing, circa 2015, announcing his decision to run in the 2016 presidential election, he has been faced with the media's attention, or more accurately criticisms.

People love to bash Trump. Whether it is a leftist, rightist, or anyone in the middle, a commonality shared between many is that they don't like President Trump. Although, it appears many reasons the population holds for disliking Trump just doesn't seem to hold up.

He is politically incorrect. Personally, ever since the beginning, this has not bothered me with Trump. Not to say every politically incorrect thing Trump has said is warranted, but much of it is. I want a president who says what they think and is as transparent as possible. Many former presidents who have been seen as “politically correct" weren't in actuality behind the scenes.

He is a businessman. Business is very intertwined with politics and economics, and Trump has been around long enough for many to feel comfortable with him being president.

He uses Twitter too much. His use of Twitter is not the problem, it is his tweet content. So, do not bash him for using a popular media source to speak, because it is indeed very useful. It is the modern fireside chats, common with FDR.

He hates women. Women hating is definitely not okay. Despite this, I don't see how people truly think Trump is worse than other presidents and politicians for openly hating women. Clinton clearly took advantage of a woman, but you wouldn't have known unless it was leaked.

Reasons to actually dislike Trump are great in number. Many presidents are disliked, although with Trump it seems much of his criticism isn't focused on the legitimate reasons he is acting as a poor executive, described below.

He does things just to spite leftists. Instead of using his time to make honest, good policy changes, Trump's transgender military ban seemed to have no true basis, leaving many to think he just wants to make democrats and those associated with LGBTQ+ mad. This isn't something a president should do.

He lied. Much of Trump's preliminary campaign focuses on the idea that Mexican was going to fund the Wall. Recently, Trump claimed he never said such a thing.

His political opinions have shifted tremendously in the past decade. Not to say one's political ideology cannot change, but Trump changed parties within the past decade. Now, he's suddenly so right he acts like democrats are the worst thing created, even though he was recently one.

As someone who overall dislikes Trump, I cannot sit around and watch people criticize him for things that don't matter, but barley criticize him for the most damaging things he's said or done. In an era where people's lives, citizenship and well-being are at stake, detestably more than ever, this is not the time to become mad over snowflake things.

P.S. He still is YOUR president, whether you like it or not.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair.

There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.
