no title

This is seriously long overdue!

The campaign, which is being put on by MoveOn.org's #UnitedAgainstHate effort, has released an open letter very critical of Trump, and asking American citizens to join against the Republican Party's nominee for President this fall in the very important election.

In part, the letter signed by all the celebs reads:

"Donald Trump wants to take our country back to a time when fear excused violence, when greed fueled discrimination, and when the state wrote prejudice against marginalized communities into law …. Some of us come from the groups Trump has attacked. Some of us don't. But as history has shown, it's often only a matter of time before the 'other' becomes me."

Wow.

They are NOT playing around — and it is so good to see!

Melania Trump's Speech May Actually Have Been AGAINST FEDERAL LAW! Find Out Why!

| Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpMichelle ObamaKerry WashingtonControversy

It's been mere days since Donald Trump has been named the official Republican presidential nominee, and his campaign has already been ridden with more scandals than Kerry Washington would know what to do with.

On Wednesday, Trump's campaign admitted parts of Melania Trump's RNC speech had been plagiarized from Michelle Obama's 2008 address — and offered up employee Meredith McIver as the person to blame.

In her statement, McIver described herself as an "in-house staff writer at the Trump Organization" who worked with Melania on the speech.

Apparently, Miz Trump read out some passages from FLOTUS as inspiration, and the staff writer was so incompetent, she accidentally included them in the speech. (Sounds fishy to us — but hey, that's politics!)

However, the confession may have actually caused a much bigger problem for team Trump, because both the letterhead and employee are from The Trump Organization — aka the candidate's personal business — and NOT the campaign!

Trump's campaign is allowed to use Trump Organization employees if they are paid by the campaign for that work, but McIver's statement — plus, the fact that she's a registered Democrat — strongly suggests that was never a campaign employee at all!!!

Though it does explain why the speech writer is such a big fan of Michelle Obama! LOLz!

Do YOU think Trump's campaign is in legal trouble?

Kerry Washington Campaigns To Give 'Security, Wisdom, Knowledge, & Empowerment' For Victims Of Domestic Violence

| Filed under: Kerry WashingtonCharityViolenceGirl Power

Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington is doing her part in raising awareness about the realities of domestic violence.

Many don't realize financial abuse is the leading reason women stay trapped in abusive relationships.

This year, the Scandal star is working alongside the Allstate Foundation's Purple Purse and #FreetoWalk campaigns to bring attention to this very important cause.

The 39-year-old actress pressed:

"Financial abuse is such an invisible weapon. It's not something we think of. We can see black eyes and we can see bruising and I think, we think a lot about the emotional abuse, and all of those things are valid, but to know that financial abuse is the number one reason why women stay and why they can't walk away — it matters so much to be able to do something about that because it unlocks the solutions in the other areas as well."

Miz Washington also explained to People why she is clearly so passionate about this collaboration:
