This is America and everyone allegedly has the right to vote for whomever they deem to be worthy of our great country. However, like most of you, we were shocked when Donald Trump became the 45th President of The United States. There are few things more shocking than this.

Then again the news that Tina Campbell, gospel artist and half of the musical duo of Mary, Mary actually voted for Trump may make us reconsider that.

Earlier this year Tina urged the country to pray for Trump, relaying it was the “Christian thing to do.” Still, Tina never outright stated she actually voted for him, but has now come forward that she did and explained why.

Now, in an interview with The Root, Tina says she voted for Donald because she felt his Christian values aligned with hers.

“I had a perspective. I had a feeling. And I put it out there. I know there’s some people who don’t agree. I do not agree with a lot of the decisions that this man makes. And I made that very clear in my statement.

“I was faced with two presidential candidates that I really did not approve of,” Campbell elaborated. “And so I had to find something, a commonality with one of them, that would make me feel like if I have to vote, I should utilize my right to vote. Since I don’t prefer either of them, what can I find that would make me vote? And some of Donald Trump’s views on Christianity, honestly, is what caused me to vote for him.

“Many of the decisions that he has made afterwards, I have not been in agreement with at all, which I wasn’t in agreement with my last president that I voted for,” she added. “But however, as a Christian, my perspective is to pray for the president, to not use my social platforms or other platforms to try to destroy this man, because at the end of the day, he still represents the country that I live in.

“So if I’m going to use my platform, my power, my voice, I ought to use it to pray for him. To pray that he would make wise decisions, that he would be true to the oath that he took, and to not incite fear by talking about everything that’s wrong, especially with people that’s my color,” she explained further.

We have to say we are surprised Tina voted for him. Praying for the man is the Christian thing to do, but electing him into office is a completely different matter. During his campaign Trump was anti-everything that was not White, rich, and male; winning The Oval Office of deep rooted racial fears and a good ol’ boy mentality. If she is now feeling foolish and wrought with voter’s remorse then all we can say is good for her. Not cool Tina, NOT COOL AT ALL. Thanks for putting shackles back on a few million Americans’ feet–pun absolutely intended!

Kate Spade with her husband Andy, and daughter, Bea

Kate was the most beautiful woman in the world. She was the kindest person I’ve ever known and my best friend for 35 years. My daughter and I are devastated by her loss, and can’t even begin to fathom life without her. We are deeply heartbroken and miss her already.

Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives. We were in touch with her the night before and she sounded happy. There was no indication and no warning that she would do this. It was a complete shock. And it clearly wasn’t her. There were personal demons she was battling.

For the past 10 months we had been living separately, but within a few blocks of each other. Bea was living with both of us and we saw each other or spoke every day. We ate many meals together as a family and continued to vacation together as a family. Our daughter was our priority. We were not legally separated, and never even discussed divorce. We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how. We were together for 35 years. We loved each other very much and simply needed a break.

This is the truth. Anything else that is out there right now is false. She was actively seeking help for depression and anxiety over the last 5 years, seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking medication for both depression and anxiety. There was no substance or alcohol abuse. There were no business problems. We loved creating our businesses together. We were co-parenting our beautiful daughter. I have yet to see any note left behind and am appalled that a private message to my daughter has been so heartlessly shared with the media.

My main concern is Bea and protecting her privacy as she deals with the unimaginable grief of losing her mother. Kate loved Bea so very much.

Our heart goes out to Kate Spade’s family in their time of grief. We would like to reiterate that there is help for anyone feeling suicidal. If you or anyone you know is feeling this way please notify someone immediately and contact the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. Be blessed.

Hmmm…Kim Kardashian (@KimKardashian) to Meet w/ Trump Over Alice Marie Johnson!

It looks like Kim Kardashian has some political ambitions–or is using her husband’s newfound political allegiance to Donald Trump to her advantage.  Surprisingly we are not talking about a new makeup line or even another twisted episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Instead Kim is opting to speak with Donald in her ongoing crusade to free an imprisoned great-grandmother, Alice Marie Johnson.

Kim Kardashian and Alice Marie Johnson

Our sources tell us Kim and her attorney, Shawn Holley, have scheduled a meeting Wednesday with Trump to lobby for a pardon for Johnson … who’s currently serving a life sentence at the Aliceville Correctional Facility in Alabama.

As we reported … KKW and Shawn have been working with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner for months to free Alice, but now the Prez is getting involved directly.

We are not really sure what Kim’s motives are, or if she even has a motive. All we know is that the Kardashian name goes a long way in this country. If she can use her clout to better the life of an imprisoned woman then so be it and we tip our hat to her.

Alice is definitely appreciative. Check out the letter she sent her below:
