Watch Donald Trump Talk Caitlyn Jenner, The NC Bathroom Debate, & Harriet Tubman — And Actually Say Something We Agree With!

no title

It's no surprise that Donald Trump has a lot of opinions that we do NOT agree with — but when he stopped by TODAY, he actually said something we support!

Since the whole North Carolina bathroom bill is such a hot button issue, Matt Lauer decided to ask Trump what his opinion was on the matter — specifically, which bathroom the former Celebrity Apprentice star thought Caitlyn Jenner should use should she visit Trump Tower!

The 69-year-old surprised us by saying he would be perfectly fine with her using whichever bathroom she felt comfortable with.

Seriously, these words came out of Trump's mouth!

Of course our kudos for the presidential hopeful ended there as he was also asked about Harriet Tubman replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 to which he said the decision only happened due to "political correctness." The ochre haired politician also agreed with his new crony Ben Carson and said maybe Harriet should be put on another denomination like the $2 bill. UGH.

Ch-ch-check out the businessman talk about NC's bathroom bill, as well as his thoughts on the new face of the $20 bill (below)!

Tubman was most famously known for escaping slavery, traveling back to the South in 1853, and freeing hundreds of other slaves via the Underground Railroad.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is expected to make the monumental announcement along with a few other changes that could include putting more leaders of the women's suffrage movement on the back of the $10 bill!

Not only that, but the Treasury is looking to possibly add

Raven-Symoné Doesn't Think Harriet Tubman Should Be On The $20 Bill Because She's Not Progressive Enough?!

no title

That's so Raven?!

Recently, a grassroots campaign called "Women On 20s" started a viral frenzy when they proposed that former president Andrew Jackson be taken off the $20 bill and replaced with African-American abolitionist Harriet Tubman — who during the 1800s used the Underground Railroad to rescue approximately seventy family and friends from slavery.

Well apparently Tubman's work just doesn't impress Raven-Symoné!

On Wednesday's episode of The View, the former child star revealed that she didn't like the idea of putting the historical legend on such currency!

She said:

"No offense to everyone that's going to be mad at me for saying this, I don't like that idea… I think we need to move a little bit more forward. Let me just preface that I understand the history, I get it, trust me, I was taught, I was in that culture… I would've chosen Rosa Parks."

As to why she would've chosen Parks over Harriet Tubman, the 29-year-old believes the former is more progressive and more in-line with our current political landscape:

Russell Simmons Says He's Done More "For Blacks In Fashion & Gay Rights" Than Andre Leon Talley! Read All About Their Feud HERE!

André Leon Talley and Russell Simmons get in a heated feud about sex tapes, animals, and fashion week!

Now this is what we call a cat fight!!

Two heavy-hitters in fashion, Numero Russia's André Leon Talley and Def Jam’s Russell Simmons are NOT seeing eye-to-eye, not one bit!

Everything started when Simmons parodied iconic freedom fighter Harriet Tubman in a sex tape for what was meant to be a comedic post on All Def Digital.

As you can imagine, the video was more offensive than humorous, to the extent that André told theGrio last week:

Jersey's Finest

98818863.jpg

Danny Devito, Jack Nicholson and Susan Sarandon are amongst Sunday's inductees into the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

The actors joined author Judy Blume, Frankie Valli and Bruce Springsteen for the event.

"He has Jersey attitude pouring out of him, even when he is standing still. (His) persona exemplifies what it means to be one of us," said The Boss about Devito.

The two then sang Glory Days in front of an audience that included Buzz Aldrin and Joe Pesci.

WTF?!

Even Jack was there - and it meant so much to him that he missed a Lakers game to attend!

"I could sing the praises of New Jersey all night," said Nicholson.

Past inductees include Springsteen, Toni Morrison and Harriet Tubman.

And coming soon…Snooki?!
