‘America’s Got Talent’ Finalist Posts Pro-Trump Photo, Check out What Happened to Him Immediately After

Not cool.

Benton Blount, a finalist on “America’s Got Talent,” says he was kicked off a tour opening up for ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons after he posted a selfie on Facebook wearing a red MAGA hat. In the photo he was also sporting an “I voted” sticker and holding a Chick-fil-A sandwich and drink.

The caption for the post read, “Someone reading this just got offended multiple times. My work here is done! #Vote.”

Blount said he drove from Greenville, South Carolina, to Atlanta for last Wednesday night’s show and learned he was no longer on the bill, the News said, adding that Blount was four shows into a seven-show slot opening for Gibbons.

A spokesman for Gibbons’ tour said Blount was “disinvited to continue the tour because of a creative decision,” WHNS-TV reported. Blount told the News he didn’t speak to Gibbons directly.

Blount also said his post earned him a temporary ban from Facebook because it violated “community standards.”

He added to the paper that he often shares politically themed memes and takes part in “poking fun at politics” on his podcast page but that the photo in question was posted on his personal Facebook page.

“It’s getting ridiculous,” Blount lamented on a video he recorded for fans Wednesday. He added that “all this nonsense needs to stop. … just the fact that you can’t share your opinion anymore without a either social media site taking it down and making you look like a villain when you just said ‘I voted’ all the way to your career being affected …”

It’s a sad state of affairs when your political ideology can get you booted from your job, all because folks at the top don’t like where you stand. We all, as fully functioning adults, should be able to stand up boldly for what we believe is right, to speak our minds freely, especially when what is said is harmless, without fear.

Unfortunately, thanks largely to the advent of social media, that is no longer the case.

One has to wonder if perhaps the best thing about social media, everyone having a voice, is also what is the worst thing about it too?

Anti Trump Pop Singer Verbally Eviscerates Bernie Sanders’ Voting Rights Idea

When Cher thinks you’re going too far to the left, that’s saying something.

America has undoubtedly felt the pull of extremism in politics as of late, and some prominent public figures have begun to lash out at some of the wilder notions. This polarization is undeniably due to the sensationalism of the mainstream media, who have taken to the Trump presidency with a verbose and vitriolic attitude.  It certainly doesn’t help that President Trump is a bombastic and stubborn leader who revels in the public eye, taking pot shots at pundits and talking heads whenever he feels the urge. This division has caused our politicians, particularly those within the 2020 democratic field, to drive their party hard to the left in order to offset the Trump administration. But how far is too far?  Bernie Sanders’ recent proposal to allow incarcerated criminals to vote has certainly prompted that very question, with even some of the most progressive pop stars and most vocal anti-Trump voices rebuffing the democratic socialist. [Author’s warning:  Strong language ahead.] Pop star Cher defended herself from attacks on social media Tuesday in a series of now-deleted tweets after she was criticized for questioning Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) plan to let felons and terrorists vote. “TERRORIST KILLED INNOCENT PPL. IM SICK OF BEING NAILED 2 CROSS BECAUSE U PPL THINK IM A RACIST‼️IM NOT GOING TO DEFEND MYSELF‼️I CARE 4 ALL PPL,TRY TO HELP ALL PPL,” Cher said. “Excuse The Fk Out Of Me If I don’t want ,Murders, Rapists, &; CHILD MOLESTERS of every color to vote.” This post comes in response to a social media user who criticized Cher for panning the idea of letting felons vote. Cher has long been a critic of President Trump, and a staunch liberal, making her rebuke of Bernie Sanders’ plans a profound endorsement of the idea that the left is turning radical.

Sarah Sanders Pressed to Resign or Be Fired by CNN Analyst

You know that things are looking desperate when television entertainers start telling the White House who to hire and fire.

The media is having a heyday with the Mueller report, warping and wilting the 400+ pages to match whichever narrative they see fit. The President continues to tout the idea of “total exoneration”, complete with his “no obstruction” line, but even the most magnanimous of “news” providers are cautioning that this is likely an erroneous or misleading statement.  The Mueller report specifically and unequivocally states otherwise, but we aren’t talking about guilt anymore…we’re talking about political culpability. In that context, President Trump’s flippant, hand-wringing responses are more for the court of public opinion than the actual courts, and all of this is in response to the hyperbolic and partisan media hackery that we’ve been subjected to over the course of the last 12 hours, nay, the last 22 months. And the world of infotainment isn’t done yet, either, as CNN analysts are now making suggestions as to how Trump should rearrange his staff based on their findings in the Mueller report itself. CNN political analyst April Ryan called for the firing of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, claiming Sanders “lied” to the media following the release of the Mueller report. In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded on anything. The White House’s current culture of upheaval notwithstanding, April Ryan’s understanding of the situation on Pennsylvania Avenue can only be interpreted through the lens of her position within the Washington infotainment industry, and is not indicate of…
