Donald Trump Supporter Tries To Blame Hip-Hop For #TrumpTapes, Fails Miserably

Stacy Washington is serious about supporting Trump. 

When it comes to being offensive, the world is constantly learning that Donald Trump doesn't discriminate.  

The Washington Post recently released an 11-year old recording of the billionaire engaged in a vulgar conversation with former Access Hollywood host, Billy Bush, that might just kill his presidential bid.

In the recording, Trump brags about forcing women to kiss him, preying on a married woman (Entertainment Tonight host, Nancy O'Dell), and claims fame and money allow him to do anything he wants -- like grabbing  woman "by the p*ssy."

After the tapes were released, Trump went on national television to squint his way through a  robotic apology (if you pay close attention to his eyes can clearly see he’s reading every word he says from a teleprompter).

Trump's mea culpa wasn't enough to undue the damage, even running mate, Mike Pence, couldn’t defend the Republican presidential hopeful.

But Trump does have some supporters, and Stacy Washington is among the bunch. The conservative radio talk show host feverishly defended him on CNN Saturday (Oct. 8),  which may be a little ironic, considering she belongs to two of the many groups Trump has projected negative views on in the past: minorities and women.

"I didn't say the comments were okay, I condemned them, I think they were horrible but they were 11 years ago." Washington said during an exchange with CNN's Poppy Harlow.

Harlow noted that Trump made "sexually aggressive comments about grabbing women because you can, because you're powerful," at which point Washington pulled the hip-hop card.

"Sounds a lot like hip-hop music from today," she said.

Harlow rejected Washington's attempt by stating the obvious: "Hip-hop artists are not running for president."

Washington's lazy comparison didn't get much love on Twitter.

As Hilary Rosen points out in a separate conversation with Washington and Fredricka Whitfield Trump's apology is full of double standards, that nobody seems to be buying.

Trump asserts in the apology, that his past comments shouldn’t matter because he’s a new person, yet brings Bill Clinton. 

Hello?

  1. Bill Clinton isn’t his opponent (it's .
  2. If something Trump said 11 years ago doesn't matter, why should something that your opponent’s partner did matter?

Maybe Trump is bad at math and facial/name recognition, or he only applies certain exceptions to himself.

Either way, he’s full of a bunch of “it,” and people are getting tired of listening to him repeatedly degrade and disrespect others.

Just in case, Trump tries to forget this whole thing ever happened, producer Mike Dean’s immortalized his comments in “Grab 'Em By Da P*ssy.”

H.E.R. Brings All-Star Medley To Tiny Desk Set

Grammy-nominated singer H.E.R. appeared on NPR's "Tiny Desk" set on Dec. 12, to deliver a 4-piece-medley from her last four projects.

Tucked neatly behind her dark sunglasses, the songstress began her set strapped to a mustard yellow guitar with a host of back-up musicians accompanying the 21-year-old on her first solo journey with "Tiny Desk." She previously appeared on the performance series in June 2018 alongside collaborator Daniel Caesar to bring their single "Best Part" to life.

The singer began with "Going (Interlude)," a low-tempo song ushering a heavy-hearted feel into the 18-minute-performance. Keeping with the melancholy vibes planted by the first single, Gabriella Wilson – best known by her three-letter-moniker –  delivered a stunning rendition of "Feel A Way." With two-final transitions, the singer-songwriter concluded her act with "Focus," a throw back from the 2017 EP that gained her worldwide recognition, H.E.R. Volume 1.

Switching from strings to keys, Wilson sat peacefully before a keyboard playing the melody she crafted for the crowd favorite. Chaperoning the performance to a close, Wilson and her background singers played a vocal game of tag as the band jazzed up the slow beats until the set officially wrapped.

Watch as H.E.R. rocks the "Tiny Desk" set in the video above.

A post shared by James Corden (@j_corden) on Dec 10, 2018 at 5:17pm PST

In addition to the “Money” rapper, Amber Heard and Armie Hammer will also appear on the same episode. Corden is closing out the last leg of 2018 strong by having a slew of other prominent stars on the show on the last week before the program goes on break for the holidays. The likes of Gwen Stefani, RuPaul, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Leah Remini, Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others will be featured on the show after Bardi’s Monday episode.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."

With all the fun Migos had with Corden, we can only imagine what shenanigans James and Belcalis are going to get into.

Usher Releases "Peace Sign" Video Off Of 'A' Project

Given Monday's (Dec. 10) debate about who's the king of R&B, one of the names that steadily popped up in the conversation has stepped onto the scene. In a visual promotion for his A soundscape, Usher released the video for "Peace Sign" alongside producer Zaytoven.

Previously, the pair hit the studio for an eight-track project that pays respect to their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. It was surprise-released in October and effortlessly fuses ATL's aura on the soundscape. Now, the "Peace Sign" video puts that decision into cinematic motion.

"Atlanta offers a certain attitude and a sauce that I can't explain, and it is a little bit in 'No Limit,' it is a little bit in 'TNT.' I'm literally talking sh*t, man," he said in an interview with The Fader. "I'm popping sh*t that I haven't popped, like really ever. And that's what being in the moment creates. When you have months and months to think about it and you begin to analyze all the people who you need to think of and what you want this entire project to work out, you'll lose certain elements of your spontaneity an incredible culture that just happens in the moment. I didn't give that space. I really was honest with the feelings, I was honest with the conversation and I was really in the moment. And I thank Zay for that."
