*In the aftermath of catching all kinds of heat for hooking up with Donald Trump on his so-called “Platinum Plan” for Black America, Ice Cube is striking back with a defiant tweet.

“When I got [the] bus to school. Homies called me a sellout. When I started rapping in 1983. Bangers called me a sellout,” Cube (above) wrote. “When I left NWA. They called me a sellout. When I start doing movies. Rappers called me a sellout. When I started my own [3-on-3 basketball] league. The arena said it was a sellout.”

*“Breakfast Club” co-host Charlamagne tha God said he understands why some young Black voters support President Donald Trump, specifically Black males.

During his appearance on Don Lemon’s CNN show on Tuesday, the radio host was asked what he wants from the presidential candidates.

“When it comes to black people you see who maybe are showing support for Trump, I think it’s because Trump is actually talking to young black male voters. He’s directing ads toward them. They are a group that never get courted,” Charlamagne said, New York Post reports. “Black people don’t get courted either as a whole. But that old Democratic regime speaks to old black men and they think everybody else in the black community and black families are going to fall in line.”

“Trump is targeting young black males in promos and marketing. It works,” Charlamagne said.

Lemon then asked if Harris will attract Black voters to the polls.

“Absolutely. I mean, when we were pushing for Joe Biden to pick a black woman as his his VP, Senator Harris was who I had in mind. And I’m voting for Kamala Harris, I’ll tell you that in a heartbeat. I’m not necessarily voting for Joe Biden,” he said.

Charlamagne called Harris a “political change agent” who can lead the country into the future, “because I’m gonna be honest with you, Don, I’m just so tired of like old white male leadership in politics.”

The media personality has made clear that he is voting for Harris instead of Joe Biden.

Rudy Giuliani Responds to His ‘Inappropriate’ Hotel Scene in ‘Borat’ Sequel: ‘A Complete Fabrication’

*Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, has fired back at claims he acted inappropriately in the upcoming “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.”

Multiple media outlets have described his scene in the upcoming comedy, which you can read below via cleveland.com:

In the scene, Tutar, played by 24-year-old actress Maria Bakalova, poses as a conservative TV reporter and arranges an interview with Giuliani at a hotel. They end up in a bedroom where she untucks his shirt and takes off his microphone. The former New York City mayor then lies down on the bed and suggestively puts his hand down his pants before Borat, in a wig and bikini, storms in and yells, “She’s 15, she’s too old for you!” Giuliani leaves after an awkward exchange between the three.

“Rudy, Trump would be disappoint, you are leaving hotel without golden shower,” Borat says in parting.

Giuliani previously revealed that he called the police after Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen tried to prank him at The Mark Hotel in New York City on July 7.  Cohen was reportedly wearing a pink bikini when he interrupted the spoof interview, PEOPLE reported.

“This  guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,” Giuliani explained. “It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn’t what I would call distractingly attractive.” 

The former mayor of New York City took to Twitter Wednesday to respond to this latest spoiler from the film.  

“The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment. At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar,” he wrote in a Twitter thread. “In fact, the NY Post today reports ‘it looks to me like an exaggeration through editing.’ As soon as I realized it was a set up I called the police, which has been noted in THR article on July 8th.”

Giuliani said his appearance in the movie is being used as “an effort to blunt my relentless exposure of the criminality and depravity of Joe Biden and his entire family,” referring to his role in the New York Post’s unverified report on Hunter Biden’s alleged emails and keeping one of the Trump campaign’s main talking points over the last couple of weeks in the news cycle.

Did Giuliani act inappropriately during his mock interview? Was the scene edited? You decide when “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” drops Friday on Amazon Prime Video.
