Stephen Colbert Confronts Trump About His Tweets In Twitter-vention

Donald Trump, we need to talk.

Your tweets are out of control, man. I know you think that’s all fake news.

Oh, look. There you go again. 

Thankfully, Stephen Colbert is here to help.

After White House aides supposedly held a Twitter intervention for Trump recently, Colbert did one of his own on Tuesday night.

“Dear President Trump, your tweeting has affected me in the following ways: My ratings are up,” said Colbert, reading from his intervention letter. “But, President Trump, some nights half my monologue is just about things you’ve tweeted. You’re squeezing out other fun news stories. Did you know that San Francisco is opening a rat cafe? They are. That’s real. You took that away from me.”

Colbert continued, “We want you to accept help, or the very least, autocorrect.”

The “Late Show” host suggests Trump needs to give up his harmful addiction to Twitter and come up with another coping mechanism.

“Have you tried drinking? Because that’s what I’ve been doing, and it’s going pretty great,” said Colbert. 

Mr. President, when it comes to tweeting …

Ashley and JP Up in Flames? See How the Bachelorette Couple Confronts Issues Wrecking Their Relationship

Ashley and J.P. Rosenbaum aren’t necessarily known for having fiery marital spats, but that could soon change.

In an exclusive sneak peek at Friday’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, the Bachelorette couple participates in a therapeutic exercise, acknowledging their anxieties, weaknesses and personal roadblocks, in order to move toward accepting their flaws.

Ashley admits she struggles with social anxiety and becoming overly emotional. And while J.P. owns that he doesn’t understand her neuroses, he also confesses to being frustrated that he’s “not made a priority.”

He acknowledges in a separate interview with Ashley that, “In the last year and a half ever since we had our son, it’s been all about him, but we can’t forget about us as a couple.”

After airing their relationship grievances, which are written on papers, the couple symbolically sets them all aflame so they can set themselves free once and for all.

J.P. met Ashley (née Hebert) and won her heart on The Bachelorette in 2011. They married in December 2012 and had their first child, Fordham Rhys, on Sept. 30, 2014. This past November, they welcomed daughter Essex Reese, and Rosenbaum tweeted at the time that little Essie “Already has me wrapped around her little finger. I’m in trouble!”

Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars airs Fridays (9 p.m. ET) on WEtv.

Muslim Women’s Hip-Hop Collective Confronts Stereotypes And Breaks Up The Boys’ Club

A new collective of hip-hop and spoken word artists are taking on stereotypes one rhyme at a time in the Bay Area.

Earlier this month, The Hijabi Chronicles, a collective of female artists of the Muslim faith, launched via their first event at La Peña Cultural Center in Berkeley, California. It is said to be the first event of its kind in California, if not nationwide.

Alia Sharrief, the group’s founder, explained to AJ+ in a video Monday that the objective of the group is convey that Muslim women belong in hip-hop, even if the genre has traditionally been male-dominated as well as generally frowned upon in more conservative corners of the Muslim community.

“We’re knowledgeable, we have rhymes, we have soul and we have something to say,” Sharrief told AJ+.

Sharrief, who was born and raised in Sacramento and lives in the Bay Area, released her debut album, “Mental Cycles and Mood Swings,” in 2012. Her second album, “Back On My Deen,” is on the way and its first single, “Who Ready,” was released in February. The song’s music video is inspired by Malcolm X.

Sharrief and other artists associated with the collective make it a point to address current issues, particularly as they relate to matters of race and gender.

“I rhyme about helping people, protesting, speaking up for humanity, having dignity, and self respect to say the least,” Sharrief wrote last year in a feature on Muslimah Montage, an online platform for Muslim women.

In another video, released last fall, Sharrief and fellow artist Aminah Bell responded to rapper Iggy Azalea, who some have criticized for cultural appropriation, over the beat of Azalea’s “Black Widow.”
