Georgetown Professor Goes on Anti-Trump Rant at Aretha Franklin’s Funeral


Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson went on a rant against the president and even suggested that Hillary Clinton won the election during his eulogy at Aretha Franklin’s funeral on Friday.

He began his speech saying listing people who were in attendance including, “President Clinton and her husband Bill.”

“Then this orange apparition had the nerve to say she worked for him. You lugubrious leach, you dopey doppelgänger of deceit and deviance, you lethal liar, you dimwitted dictator, you foolish fascist,” Dyson continued.

Swamp Creatures Use McCain’s Funeral to Bash Trump


John McCain was eulogized by two former presidents, along with members of his family at a memorial service at Washington National Cathedral on Saturday.

The stirring tributes to the Arizona senator, who died last week at 81, balanced remembrances of his life and legacy as a statesman, father and husband.

But they also included obvious swipes at current President Donald Trump — who was not invited to the memorial and instead spent the morning golfing and tweeting — and his worldview.

Meghan McCain was up first, and the senator’s daughter delivered an emotional tribute to her father, that turned fiery as she took pointed shots at Trump, notably his campaign slogan.

Mad Maxine Waters Uses a Salute From a Work of Fiction to Honor Aretha Franklin


DETROIT (AP) — As far as one minister is concerned, it’s Maxine Waters Forever!

When Bishop Charles H. Ellis III of Greater Grace Temple assured Rep. Maxine Waters at the Aretha Franklin funeral that “We got your back!” he was repaid in full with the hands fisted, arms crossed “Wakanda Forever!” salute from the California congresswoman.

The moment Friday came during a pause in the program at the Queen of Soul’s homegoing, when Ellis recognized Waters in the audience and acknowledged how she has come under fire, apparently referring to President Trump’s Twitter attacks on the Democrat.

“Maxine Waters, from southside L.A., South Central,” Ellis said.

Waters stood and responded with the signature greeting from the blockbuster film “Black Panther,” with her arms crossed in front of her chest. Many in the audience, including former President Bill Clinton, stood and applauded.

Al Sharpton Gets Standing Ovation For Insulting Trump at Aretha Franklin Funeral

The Rev. Al Sharpton hit back at President Donald Trump for his comments following the death of legendary singer Aretha Franklin.
The MSNBC host and civil rights advocate was one of several speakers at Franklin’s funeral in Detroit on Friday. As he spoke in front of a crowd filled with the late icon’s family and friends, as well as celebrities and politicians, Sharpton poked fun at himself for misspelling “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” on his Sunday TV show earlier this month.
“You know the other Sunday on my show, I misspelled ‘respect,’ and a lot of y’all corrected me,” he joked. “Now I want y’all to help me correct President Trump to teach him what it means.”
Funeral attendees started cheering, and many rose to their feet.
