Joe E. Collins III

*Joe Collins, the Republican Navy veteran running against U.S. Rep Maxine Waters in California, released an ad Monday that has already racked up millions of views on Twitter alone.

He took a page from fellow Black GOP candidate Kim Klacik, who is running to replace late longtime Rep. Elijah Cummings and went viral with an ad showing her walking through blighted neighborhoods in her district and blaming it on Democratic leadership.

Collins used the exact same tactic in his ad calling out Waters and pointing out that he grew up in the south Los Angeles district that she represents, yet no longer resides in.

“Do you know where I am right now?” Collins says in a video depicting him walking up to Waters’ house. “Maxine Waters’ $6 million mansion. Do you know where I’m not right now? Maxine Waters’ district. Yep, that’s right. Maxine does not live in her district, but I do.”

“I was born right here in South L.A., in a place Maxine refuses to live,” Collins continues. “Maxine Waters does not drink our water. She does not breathe our air. And while she sits here in her mansion, our district is in ruins.”

Collins went on to list ways in which the city has declined in recent years, blaming it mostly on policies that Waters has supported.

Flint City Councilman Maurice Davis

*Move over Weezy. Another day, another report about a prominent Black man supporting Donald Trump.

Flint City Council member Maurice Davis, a lifelong Democrat, spoke before Vice President Mike Pence’s address at Flint Bishop Airport saying he supports President Donald Trump.

The Trump fans cheered him on as he continued, “Right now the narrative has been spent, ‘President Trump is full of hate.’ Let me tell you something, the Democrats are full of hate. I have been a Democrat all my life, 64 years. The last four years I voted for Hillary Clinton. This year I decided to go with President Trump. I am not a bootlicker, I am not an Uncle Tom.

“I’m none of those things, I’m somebody that’s in a poor, impoverished community.”

Davis, the vice president of the city council, said: “When Mr. Trump say ‘what the hell you got to lose’ he was talking to me. He was not talking to my seat. Only thing Maurice D. Davis got to lose is a council seat at $700 every two weeks.”

“But this is what I got to gain– instead of being divided state of America it’s time to be the United States of America,” he said.

Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo on CNN (Oct. 29, 2020)

*CNN anchor Don Lemon on Thursday said that he “had to get rid of” friends supporting President Trump “because they’re too far gone,” adding that he would be friends with them again if “they want to live in reality.”

During his nightly handoff to anchor Chris Cuomo, Lemon said of his Trump friends, “I try and I try and I try, they say something really stupid and then I’ll show them the science and I’ll give them the information, and they still repeat those talking points. I had to get rid of a lot of people in my life because sometimes you’ve just got to let them go. I think they have to hit rock bottom like an addict, right? And they have to want to get help, they have to want to know the truth, they have to want to live in reality, they have to want to be responsible not only for other people’s lives but for their lives.”

Lemon came under fire earlier this year for his extended and hearty snort-laugh when panelist Rick Wilson of the Lincoln Project dubbed Trump’s administration as one “defined by ignorance of the world,” and called #45’s supporters as the “credulous boomer rube demo.”

*Oprah Winfrey hosted a virtual town hall in the key battleground states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota, and Ohio as part of OWN’s Own Your Vote get-out-the-vote initiative, and the Democratic presidential nominee showed up to lend support.

Joe Biden dipped in during Oprah’s chat with 94-year-old Michigan voter Mildred Madison, who traveled 300 miles from Chicago to Detroit to ensure that her vote counted. Mildred has been caring for her sister just outside of Chicago. She normally votes absentee, but when her ballot for the August primary in Michigan was late, she decided she didn’t want to take any chances with the general election. Madison seemed pleasantly surprised when Biden slid in for the surprise.

Also making a surprise appearance were The Black Eyed Peas, and rapper YellowPain.
