We are so thankful to have this man as President right now, and not someone else.

Barack Obama visited Orlando in the wake of the horrific mass shooting at the gay nightclub Pulse, and he said the exact right things.

Not only did he offer unequivocal support to the community who lost so much, saying:

"These families could be our families. In fact, they are our family. They're part of the American family. And today the Vice President and I told them, on behalf of the American people that our hearts are broken too. And that we stand with you."

He also clarified for those too thickheaded to understand that this WAS an act of hate against the LGBT community, saying:

Uhhhh, sure….

Seth Meyers BANS Donald Trump From Guesting On Late Night! Watch To Find Out Why!

no title

Seth Meyers has had enough of Donald Trump's bullsh*t!

On Tuesday's Late Night, the host announced he would be banning the presumed Republican presidential nominee from appearing on his NBC talk show.

And the reason why isn't that surprising!

Earlier this week, Trump commented on the Orlando shootings in an interview with Fox News, where he insinuated that Barack Obama sympathized with ISIS sympathizers, saying:

"He doesn't get it, or he gets it better than anybody understands. It's one or the other… We're led by a man who is not tough, not smart – or he's got something else in mind. And the something else in mind, you know, people can't believe it."

After The Washington Post reported the nominee had suggested POTUS was a terrorist sympathizer, Trump revoked the publication's press credentials.

While Meyers admitted Trump "didn't explicitly say" Obama was a terrorist sympathizer, "he implied it with all the subtlety of an eighth grader's cologne" — noting this was a strategy the candidate often used to "avoid accountability."

So, the Saturday Night Live alum decided that as long as the Post was banned from Trump's campaign, Trump would be banned from appearing on Late Night!

AH-Mazing! Ch-ch-check out the Late Night clip (below) to hear Meyers' full remarks!

Geraldo Rivera Calls Out Orlando Shooting Victims For Not Fighting Back — Watch

no title

Who says something like this?!

Early Sunday morning marked another tragic event in our country as a man by the name of Omar Mateen opened fire on a gay night club in Orlando, Florida killing 50 — including himself — as well as injuring 53 more.

While we've received quite a few updates and details about the incident — including a possible connection to ISIS — it seems the one thing we could REALLY do without is Geraldo Rivera and the rest of the peanut gallery at Fox and Friends' commentary.

On Monday morning, Geraldo appeared on Fox News to cover the terrible incident that occurred over the weekend.

We've already heard some awful responses, like Donald Trump's asinine comments about wanting to use more bombs and limit Muslims in our country, but the controversial reporter made sure to cover all the offensive bases Trump missed by suggesting the victims could have done more to protect themselves!

Much like Trump, the Dancing With The Stars alum threw some shade Barack Obama's way before saying:

Donald Trump Responds To Orlando Shooting By Calling For The U.S. To 'Increase The Bombings' — Watch!

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaDonald TrumpSad SadTwitterViolenceNewsControversy

no title

Unfortunately, we're not too surprised by Donald Trump's absolutely disgusting comments following the atrocious attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida over the weekend.

Trump had previously taken to Twitter to somewhat congratulate himself for predicting the attack — for which ISIS has since claimed responsibility — as well as call for President Barack Obama's resignation. Uhm, what?

Well on Monday, the former Celebrity Apprentice star decided to call into Fox News to help share more hateful thoughts.

When he was asked by Brian Kilmeade if there should be a military response overseas to what happened at the nightclub, the 69-year-old replied:

"Yes there should. We have to really increase the bombings. I would strike – well, you know, they know … We have generals who think we can win this thing so fast and so strong but we have to be furious for a short period of time and we're not doing it."

Sadly, this isn't too shocking seeing as how the orange skinned maniac has previously talked about banning Muslims from the country, a policy he's ready to discuss even more now. Ugh.

Ch-ch-check out Donald's full interview (below) and let us know your thoughts on the businessman's comments!

The Hamilton Cast Refuses To Use Prop Guns During Their 2016 Tony Awards Performance Following The Orlando Nightclub Tragedy — Watch Here

Following his poignant sonnet, Lin-Manuel Miranda is making another strong statement about the Orlando massacre at this year's Tony Awards.

After two incredible introductions — from President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama and then Common — the Broadway star took the stage alongside his Hamilton castmates to perform a couple big numbers from their hit show.

Following a brief bit from Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story, the talented performers segued into Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down).

But, they shared a moving message during the second song.

While performing the tune about the Battle of Yorktown, the actors refused to use prop guns in the wake of the disastrous shooting at the gay nightclub in Florida that claimed the lives of at least 50 people and injured over 50 more.

The moment the cast stood on the stage, posing without weapons, was an incredibly powerful part of this amazing performance.

Check out the whole thing (above).
