Alex Jones Stopped By T.I.'s 'ExpediTIously' Podcast To Discuss Donald Trump And Racism

On the latest episode of T.I's ExpediTIously podcast, the Atlanta native spoke with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. During the 18-minute discussion, T.I. unearths claims behind Jones' push to get Trump elected, the government's secret war against its citizens, and the plot of aliens to destroy humanity.

Shortly into the conversation, the host of the Alex Jones Show claimed that president Trump is a president that unites people.

"Well that's a lie. Now I am going to go ahead and state a firm position," Tip said. "People coming from shit hole counties. Saying that Baltimore is rat-infested. Denying Puerto Rico of proper American assistance during tragedy ... and also, turning people around at the border who are fleeing from the Bahamas. These things, to me, are un-American," T.I. said.

Jones attempted to defend himself by claiming that T.I. was taking Trump's words out of context.

To further build his argument, the rap legend went on to explain some of the racist comments that Trump has made.

"Well, the first one is when he attacked people and said they came from shit hole counties, and those people who came from--from his perspective--shit hole counties were people of color," Tip said. "He never said people from Germany, people from Sweden, people from New Zealand, people from Paris. He never those people came from shit hole counties."

"Let me go over it now because I like doing this," Jones said. "When you flying to Mexico--let's say Cancun--they give you that little note and it says on there that this is the day that you are coming in, and this is the day you are leaving. And if you don't leave on the time they say, they arrest you. And Mexico gives you a year of hard labor if you're caught there illegally. So again, the US has the most open door policy in the world. There are more than 6 billion people, almost in third world countries. They want to come here."

"And if everyone comes here, " Jones continued. "And if everyone comes here with the "system"--back when we still had Ellis Island everybody wasn't getting free stuff. So the Democrat globalist plan is to bankrupt the country. When I say Trump tries to unify, I mean as Americans. He sits there and unifies things."

Throughout the rest of the episode, T.I. and Jones went on the discuss refugees, minister Louis Farrakhan, Elijah Cummings, and other issues pertaining to Trump.

Jones later apologized for saying that Trump unifies.

Andrew Gillum Opens Up About Depression, Alcoholism Following Rehab Stint

Andrew Gillum shared a “personal update,” following a rehab stint for alcohol addiction. In an 11-minute video posted to Instagram on Monday (July 20), Gillum thanked supporters and opened up about his addiction.

“I know its been a while since we’ve had an opportunity to connect but as many of you know I decided to take some time away to work on myself,” he says in the recording.

“I went away to rehab to focus on my issues with alcoholism. Having grown up in a household where my father battled addiction to alcohol, and later died from complications from that deadly addiction, I know well the tole that alcohol can take not only on the individual but also on the family.”

The 40-year-old political and married father of three entered rehab after being found in a hotel room with a reported friend who allegedly suffered a drug overdose in April.

Therapy created an outlet for him to talk about repressed emotions, Gillum said. He went on to explain how losing the Florida gubernatorial race sent him into a deep depression. “I had totally underestimated the impact that losing the race for governor had had on my life, and the way those impacts started to show up in every aspect of my life.”

“Don’t suffer in silence,” advised Gillum. “Get access to the help that you need. So many of us think that we have to perpetrate this image of perfection…but the truth is nobody has it all together. That’s the big secret. All of us are struggling and trying and clawing at trying to be something else when we really ought to be trying to be at home in ourselves. That’s really the journey that I’m on right now.”

Watch the full video below.

San Francisco Lawmaker Proposes CAREN Act To Criminalize Racist 911 Calls

A California lawmaker introduced an ordinance that could criminalize racist 911 calls. San Francisco supervisor Shamann Walton presented the CAREN Act during a Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday (July 7).

“Racist calls are unacceptable,” Walton tweeted. “That’s why I’m introducing the CAREN Act at today’s SF Board of Supervisors meeting. This is the CAREN we need. Caution Against Racially Exploitative Non-Emergencies.

The measure is similar to a bill proposed by a New York Senator in 2018, and another proposed by California Assembly member Rob Banta last month to help end “discriminatory 911 calls motivated by an individual’s race, religion, sex, or any other protected class by designating such reports as a hate crime.”

Making a false police report is a criminal misdemeanor offense under California law, but there is currently no legislation criminalizing discriminatory 911 calls.

In related news, a white New Yorker named Amy Cooper could face criminal charges for calling 911 on a birdwatching Black man in Central Park after he informed her that her dog needed to be leashed. Chris Cooper, who has no relation to Amy Cooper, filmed the viral video in May. However, Chris has refused to cooperate with the District Attorney efforts to bring charges against Amy because she “already paid a steep price,” and “Bringing her more misery just seems liking pilling on.”
