Comedian George Lopez in Big Trouble After Blow Up Over Trump Joke Caught on Video

Uh oh.

Published

Aggressively anti-Trump actor and comedian George Lopez got into a confrontation last month with a heckler at a Hooters restaurant who made a Trump joke and poked a camera in his face. The police showed up during his time at a golf course and he is now facing charges of misdemeanor battery. He’s due in court next month.

Ouch. That’s got to smart a little.

Lopez has really gone out of his way lately to show folks that he hates Trump with a passion by pretending to pee on Trump’s Hollywood star, just in case his other antics up to that point hadn’t been enough to make that clear.

One guy at a Hooters in October clearly got the message about Lopez’s antipathy for Trump — and managed to “bait” the comedian into getting himself in trouble because of it.

The incident, which took place in mid-October, was caught on video obtained by TMZ. “George Lopez had a terrible time at Hooters, thanks to one giant boob who goaded him into a fight,” the outlet reported at the time.

The incident went down Sunday night in New Mexico, where George had spent the week filming the movie “Walking with Herb.” As you can see … the guy was lying in wait for George when he started recording.

That’s when you hear the guy say, “Here comes my boy, George,” and then all hell breaks loose. You get a glimpse of George grabbing the back of the guy’s neck.

According to TMZ’s source, the guy had been annoying Lopez all evening and yelling “MAGA.”​

Now, there’s two sides to every story, and in all honesty, both individuals involved in this situation are at fault for what transpired. Lopez needs some anger management classes to help him reel in that egregious temper of his, while this other fellow, the “victim” needs to learn that you don’t purposefully badger someone until they’re ready to pummel you.

Conservatives tend to think that the most obnoxious people on the planet are liberals, and while this might be mostly true, the right has their fair share of immature morons too. Like this guy.

You should never go out of your way to cause trouble with others, to make more division, especially when you don’t have to. Hopefully the “victim” here learns that lesson sooner rather than later.

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

Published

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
