MSNBC interviewed three undecided Black women voters in Atlanta the day before the third and final presidential debate. The segment aired on Thursday, Oct. 22, hours before the debate.

The women were passionate and very vocal about what they view as the Democrats taking their votes for granted. They each expressed their opinions that they want to hear what the Democrats are going to do for Black people NOW - not after the election.

Every four years Black people stroll to the polls and get nothing in return for their votes. They then watch as every other community benefits, while the Black community continues to struggle.

If you missed MSNBC's segment last night, I posted a clip below. I also posted a reaction video from a young man who digs deeper into the problem of Democrats courting the Black vote before every election and then ignoring the needs of the Black community for years.

Former President Barack Obama hit the campaign trail to drum up support for Joe Biden in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Wednesday, Oct. 21.

The small turnout for Obama was in stark contrast to the huge audiences he once commanded during his two terms as U.S. president.

Biden is polling ahead of President Donald Trump in the battleground state of Pennsylvania that Trump narrowly won in 2016.

But you couldn't tell judging by the light turnout for Obama's speech. Normally, an Obama appearance attracted thousands of adoring supporters. But only about three dozen people turned up at a drive-in campaign rally to hear Obama speak in a Philly park.

Afterwards, Obama strolled through the neighborhood with his Secret Service protection. He stopped to speak with a handful of Biden/Harris volunteers at a Voter activation Center (VAC).

There, he picked up a megaphone and spoke to the handful of volunteers, who didn't know what to make of the odd scene. The gaggle of reporters and photographers outnumbered the volunteers and onlookers.

Obama is hoping to motivate young Americans and Black voters in the final stretch of the White House race. Polls show Black male voters are shifting away from the Democratic Party.

Rudy Giuliani denies being "inappropriate" with an actress in a controversial scene in the new Borat sequel.

Giuliani, President Trump's attorney, responded to a prank scene from the movie sequel by notorious troll Sacha Baron Cohen, aka Borat, back in July.

The plot of Cohen's satirical movie involves a fictional reporter (Cohen) traveling from Kazakhstan to the U.S. to give his fictional daughter away to a powerful politician.

Giuliani was duped by Cohen and his "daughter” (actress Maria Bakalova) who both posed as conservative TV journalists.

Cohen is easily recognizable from previous pranks in his first movie. So he wore a disguise to meet with Giuliani.

After their meeting, Giuliani accompanied Bakalova, 24, back to her hotel room.

The story was revived on Wednesday when Cohen shared a promotional photo from his movie that showed Giuliani laying on his back on a bed while reaching into his pants.

Giuliani claims he reached into his pants to tuck in his shirt when Cohen (as Borat) burst into the hotel room wearing a pink onesie and shouted, "She's 15! She's too young for you!"

Fearing he was being set up for a blackmail scam, Giuliani called the police to report the incident.

In a statement to the NY Post in July, Giuliani said:

"This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit. It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn't what I would call distractingly attractive. This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shakedown, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away."

In his response to the photo on Wednesday, Giuliani said, "The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment.

"At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar."

Giuliani said the incident won't distract him from exposing Joe Biden as a former vice president who used his office to enrich himself and his family.

Giuliani promised more bombshell leaks from Hunter Biden's laptop -- the same laptop that has been in the FBI's possession for over a year.

"We are preparing much bigger dumps off of the hard drive from hell - of which Joe Biden will be unable to defend or hide from. I have the receipts," Giuliani said.

The FBI confirmed this week that the contents of the hard drive are "authentic" and the emails and texts are not part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

The laptop is reportedly linked to an FBI probe into "criminal" money laundering activity, possibly involving the Bidens.

Republican lawmakers are inquiring if the FBI sat on the laptop while President Trump was being impeached for asking questions about Hunter Biden's involvement in the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Isaac Hayes III (left) says rap legend Snoop Dogg is having second thoughts about Joe Biden.

In an interview with Rolling Out's "A.M. Wake-Up Call," Hayes discussed the abandonment of the Democratic Party by some of hip-hop's elite.

Hayes was disappointed that rap legend Ice Cube is apparently supporting President Donald Trump in the upcoming election.

"I was disappointed that Ice Cube would have a conversation with the Trump campaign. I'm not opposed to anyone trying to bring about change. The thing that concerns me is the timing and who you are talking to. The result was that the Trump campaign used Ice Cube to reach out to Black men. It's not the move at the right time."

When asked what message he had for Ice Cube, Hayes said:

"My message to Ice Cube would have been that Trump is different. He's radioactive. He'll tank your business. You can't align yourself with this man when he won't denounce White supremacy. He says racist things. He stokes division between the Black community and the police. I would have told Cube that this isn’t the guy to have a conversation with. [With] everything that Trump has in his plan he can make a change now. He's dangling change like a carrot to Black people for votes. We have to remove this guy from the office and start fresh."

Hayes said he spoke with Snoop Dogg, who expressed his concern about Biden's plans for Black America.

"Snoop Dogg and I spoke, and he expressed why there is a concern with the Biden campaign," Hayes said. "I had to push back and let him understand that we're trying to get this racist demigod out of office. I know people who have stood in line for 11 hours to vote."

Rapper 50 Cent endorsed President Donald Trump after seeing Joe Biden's tax plan for the wealthy. The rapper shared a screenshot of Biden's tax plan on his Instagram account on Monday.

He captioned the image: "WHAT THE F***! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT..."

Fiddy, who was born Curtis Jackson, noted that California would see the stiffest tax hike: 62.6% under Biden's plan.

Biden's tax hike allegedly applies only to people and corporations that earn more than $400,000 annually.

"I don't care Trump doesn't like black people 62% are you out of ya f***ing mind," Fiddy wrote.

50 Cent, a registered Democrat, has criticized President Trump in the past.

Months ago, he called out the president for his response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"You wanted a reality show host as president. Well now you're on Survivor," he said.

Joe Biden's campaign manager admitted the national polls that give Biden a double-digit lead over President Donald Trump are "inflated."

"We're not ahead by double digits. We're just not," tweeted Jen O'Malley Dillon on Thursday. Dillon went on to say the race is "far closer" than a lot of Biden supporters think. "Like a lot closer."

The Biden camp is concerned that the 2020 election will be a repeat of 2016 when Hillary Clinton had double-digit leads over Trump in 12 national polls.

In a Zoom call to supporters, Dillon said, "Please take the fact that we are not ahead by double digits. Those are inflated national public polling numbers."

With a hint of panic in her voice, she urged Democrats to get out and vote.

Some Twitter users expressed anger at the Biden camp for appearing to wave the white flag too early.

One user tweeted: "Are you trying to give me nightmares with this close talk or make sure I vote?"

But others see Dillon's warning as a calculating move to keep the other side off balance.

Joe Biden says his 1994 crime bill that decimated the Black community was "a mistake."

Biden made the remark during his town hall event with ABC News on Thursday night.

When asked by ABC News' George Stephanopoulos if the bill was a mistake, Biden replied, "Yes, it was. But here's where the mistake came. The mistake came in terms of what the states did locally."

Biden said the bill was created in response to a spike in crime in the inner cities in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

A member of Biden's campaign later took to Twitter to clarify that Biden was referring to the 1986 crime bill, not the controversial 1994 crime bill.

Biden wrote both bills.

The 1986 bill, which Biden also authored, toughened the sentences for possession of rock cocaine, aka "crack", while lessening sentences for people who used powder cocaine.

As Fox News pointed out on Friday, the 1994 crime bill incentivized states to "fill up prisons" in exchange for federal cash in state coffers.

Biden, 77, claims he was tougher on crack users because he was told crack cocaine was worse than powder cocaine.

"We were told by the experts that '[with] crack, you can never go back.' It was somehow fundamentally different. It's not different. It's trapped an entire generation."

A young Black male who participated in the town hall told the presidential candidate that Black males will be sitting at home on Election Day.

A recent poll shows President Trump's support among Black males increased to 45% from just 8% in 2016.

Black Twitter expressed outrage tonight after Joe Biden equated Black people in America with the criminal justice system.

Biden made the remark during ABC's town hall event on Thursday night.

A Black male asked Biden, "Besides 'you ain't Black,' what do you have to say to young Black voters who see voting for you as further participation in a system that continually fails to protect them?"

Rather than discuss his views on police reform, Biden saw a Black man standing there and immediately equated him with the criminal justice system and being poor.

"In addition to dealing with the criminal justice system to make it fair and make it more decent, we have to be able to put Black Americans in a position to be able to gain wealth," Biden said.
 

Black viewers were understandably upset. One man wrote: "WOW, a black man asks why Joe is worthy of his vote and the FIRST thing Joe mentions is criminal justice system? He just lost my vote."

Another user wrote: "He must have forgotten about his crime bill in 1994 that has sent more black men to prison than all previous crime bills combined."

And a third wrote: "Criminal justice system? Black wealth? So when he thinks of black folks, he thinks poor and criminal... ouch."

Biden's full response to the question is below.

Senator Kamala Harris canceled her travel plans after two campaign staffers tested positive for Covid-19.

The vice presidential candidate was not in close contact with either of the two infected staffers.

Her campaign made the decision to cancel her travel plans "out of an abundance of caution and in line with [the] campaign's commitment to the highest levels of precaution."

The news comes a day after presidential candidate Joe Biden called a press lid to avoid questions about a bombshell email leak that compromised his son, Hunter Biden.

Some of the emails conflict with denials Joe Biden made saying he never met with officials at a Ukraine gas company that hired Hunter Biden and paid him $50,000 a month.

In one email dated 2015, a Burisma official thanked Hunter for arranging a meeting with his father, Joe, then-vice president for Barack Obama.

But Biden's camp claimed there was no such meeting on Biden's "official” schedule for that time period.

After the email leaked on Wednesday, Biden's camp released a statement admitting for the first time that Biden "probably" met with the official.

Some 40,000 emails and thousands of text messages were found on the hard drive of a laptop computer at a repair shop in Delaware in 2019.

When the laptop's owner missed the 90-day deadline to pick up the laptop, it became the property of the repair shop. The shop owner turned the hard drive over to the FBI, but he never heard back from them.

Fearing a coverup at the federal level, the shop owner contacted President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani, who leaked the emails and explicit photos to the New York Post.

Former vice president Biden is still expected to participate in Thursday's town hall event on ABC News.

His campaign is furious that President Trump's town hall event will air at the same time, 8 p.m. ET Thursday on NBC.

Trump is expected to discuss the damaging emails found on Hunter Biden's laptop.

Pinellas County Sheriff's Dept.

Joe Biden called a "press lid" Wednesday morning after bombshell emails and photos were released that appear to show his son Hunter engaging in sex acts and smoking a crack or meth pipe in bed.

The photos and emails were part of a cache of documents discovered on a laptop computer that was never picked up from a computer repair shop in 2019.

The store owner in Delaware told the New York Post a customer dropped off the $2,000 laptop for repairs in April 2019.

After no one returned to pick up the laptop, the store owner copied data from the hard drive and contacted the FBI and Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Giuliani handed the 40,000 documents and photos over to The New York Times.

Among the photos found on the hard drive are sexually explicit images of Hunter engaging in sex acts with an unidentified woman, and smoking what appears to be a crack or meth pipe in bed.

Joe Biden called a press lid this morning, shortly after news of the emails and photos broke.

Most damning for Joe Biden is an email that appears to conflict with the presidential candidate's claim that he never spoke with Hunter about his business dealings in Ukraine.

In the email, a Burisma adviser said it was an "honor and a pleasure" to be introduced to Joe Biden.

He also asked Hunter, 50, for "advice on how you could use your influence" at Burisma.

The email is significant because in 2015 Joe Biden lobbied to get a Ukraine prosecutor fired in exchange for a $1 billion loan from the U.S. to Ukraine.

In a speech in 2018, Biden, 77, described a conversation he had with Ukraine officials: "I looked at them and said: I'm leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you're not getting the money."

The investigator was fired in March 2016.

Hunter joined the Burisma board in 2014, receiving $50,000 a month for a five-year term.

President Donald Trump says he will drop out of the second debate with Democratic candidate Joe Biden if the debate goes virtual.

Trump plans to hold a rally instead of participating in the debate scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 15 in Miami, Florida.

The debate commission announced the 2nd debate would be held virtually due to the President's positive Covid-19 test on Oct. 1.

Calling the idea of a virtual debate "ridiculous", Trump told the Mornings with Maria show, "I'm not going to waste my time on a virtual debate."

After the interview, the Trump campaign issued a statement calling members of the debate commission "swamp creatures" who were trying to help Biden.

"Here are the facts: President Trump will have posted multiple negative [Covid-19] tests prior to the debate, so there is no need for this unilateral declaration," the campaign said. "The safety of all involved can easily be achieved without canceling a chance for voters to see both candidates go head to head. We'll pass on this sad excuse to bail out Joe Biden and do a rally instead."

Trump's two eldest sons expressed outrage at the idea of a virtual debate.

Donald Trump Jr. (right) called the move "such bulls***", while Eric Trump (left) said, "Biden's mouth is watering at the notion of a virtual debate - he will have 12 teleprompters and 14 campaign staffers holding flash cards on the other side of that camera!"

The Republican mayor of Miami said President Trump shouldn't attend the debate with Biden if Trump is still testing positive for Covid-19.

One of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter Los Angeles expressed her disapproval of Democratic candidate Joe Biden, saying he is part of the "violent white supremacist system" in America.

Even as BLM collected over $1 billion to fund Biden and the Democratic National Committee, one of the co-founders, Dr. Melina Abdullah, is dismayed that she is being forced to choose between two evils -- Biden and President Donald Trump.

"People are feeling dismayed that the choices are between, you know, a violent white supremacist and another person who represents that same system," she said in a Zoom interview with ABC News.

Abdullah, a professor of Pan-African Studies at California State University, Los Angeles, said no matter the outcome of the election, she plans to continue protesting in the streets.

"In the midst of protest," she said, "a recognition that no matter what the outcome is to any of these things, we have to stay in the streets."

According to a survey conducted by the Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, support for Black Lives Matter has dropped to 39% from over 54% in June.

Another recent poll showed support for Trump among Black males increased to 45%.

Black Twitter is confused over a recent statement by Joe Biden during a campaign stop in Tampa. In a video uploaded to Twitter, Biden said the reason he was able to remain "sequestered" in his basement is because "some Black woman was able to stock the grocery shelf."

The 77-year-old Democratic candidate never explained what he meant by that remark. Many on social media are struggling to understand whether Biden has a personal grocery shopper who happens to be Black.

One Twitter user wrote, "This is what happens when Joe Biden takes questions without a teleprompter."

Conservative activist Bevelyn Beatty reacted to last night's first debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

Bevelyn and her crew noticed the disparities when Wallace constantly interrupted Trump and allowed Biden to slide after he called Trump names such as "clown" and "fool".

Bevelyn made national news when she was arrested earlier this year for defacing a Black Lives Matter mural in front of Trump Tower in New York City.

"How many of y'all wanted to jump through the TV and choke the mediator - or whatever he is?" she asked her audience on Tuesday night.

She agreed that Trump was "ganged on" by Wallace and Biden during the debate. "He was debating two people at one time, but he still held his ground," Beatty said.

Bevelyn and her 2-woman crew regretted not praying for Trump prior to the start of the debate.

"You know what? I'm gonna encourage my fellow Christians... to start praying for our candidate [before the next debate]," she said. "Because the system is so rigged against this man and it's clear as day... Even Stevie Wonder can see this!"

Viewers were undecided over who won last night's debate. At least one person in CNN's focus group thought Biden won decisively.

CNN anchor Dana Bash summed up last night's debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden as a "shitshow."

The first debate between Trump and Biden took place Tuesday night at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.

Millions tuned in to see whether Biden, 77, would hold his own against 74-year-old Trump, who was predicted to crush Biden in a seemingly one-sided debate.

But the unexpected happened.

In contrast to 2016, when a confident, self-assured Trump stalked debate challenger Hillary Clinton onstage, Trump seemed nervous and anxious at times last night.

Biden was clearly more prepared with his answers to moderator Chris Wallace's questions.

The Fox News host, who is a registered Democrat, faced criticism after the debate for showing favoritism toward Biden.

Wallace, the son of "60 Minutes" icon Mike Wallace, constantly chastised Trump for talking over Biden.

"I guess I'm debating you, not him. But that's okay," Trump told Wallace.

Wallace faced fierce backlash from conservatives and his own colleagues over his apparent bias in favor of Biden.

The numbers don't lie: Wallace interrupted Trump 76 times, while interrupting Biden only 15 times.

At one point, when Trump attacked Biden for criticizing his administration's response to the fading coronavirus pandemic, Wallace jumped in to defend Biden.

Trump slammed Biden for claiming he attended Delaware State University, a historically Black college.

"Did you use the word 'smart?'" Trump asked Biden. "So you said you went to Delaware State, but you forgot the name of your college. You didn't go to Delaware State. You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class. Don't ever use the word 'smart' with me. Don't ever use that word."

Later, Wallace chided Trump for bringing up Biden's drug-addled son, Hunter Biden. But Wallace was silent as Biden called Trump names such as "clown" and "fool".

During one sequence, Wallace allowed Biden to speak for nearly 2 minutes uninterrupted. But when it was Trump's turn to rebut Biden, Wallace constantly interrupted Trump and wouldn't let him finish.

During another heated exchange between Trump and Wallace, Biden called Trump a "clown" and told him, "shut up, man".

Former journalist Dan Rather called Trump a "bully" for running over Wallace and Biden like road kill.

Actor James Woods tweeted that Wallace was "shamelessly biased".

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade questioned his colleague's bias on Twitter.

"Why is @JoeBiden allowed to interrupt? @realDonaldTrump is not."

And conservative activist Candace Owens questioned why Wallace asked Trump to condemn white supremacists, but didn't ask Biden to condemn Antifa, who are burning down cities and killing people.

Most American viewers were undecided when asked to choose who won last night's debate. But Hispanic Telemundo News viewers were unanimous in their decision.
