Americans are waking up to the sobering news that America has no functional leadership at the moment. The President of the United States, Donald Trump, is missing in action.

The nation is divided as lawmakers point fingers at each other, saying laptop thefts from the offices of top Democrats during last week's Capitol riots was an inside job.

The head of the Capitol police resigned days after the January 6 protests, and a DC police officer who was assigned to protect the Senate wing during the riots took his own life on Saturday.

Thousands of national guard boots are on the ground in Washington, DC. There is fear of an imminent attack by foreign countries, as the U.S. government collapses.

Powerful generators were installed on the grounds of the Capitol building -- in case a nuke takes out DC's power grid.

Meanwhile, millions celebrated when Twitter and Facebook permanently banned Trump last week.

Singer Keri Hilson called for her peers to wake up and see the bigger picture -- that suppression of freedom of speech of a world leader is a threat to all of us.

Hilson wrote:

"This may be funny, but it is a little dangerous too. Take Trump out of it for a moment... A Democracy must include freedom of speech. Imagine other leaders or popular figures not being able to voice their opinion if it opposes the majority of world leaders... Our freedom of speech being taken from us, slowly but surely (censorship). If the leader of the "free world" can be removed, imagine that same right of civilians. Imagine believing every time you read "false information detected" and propaganda, deceptive reports, and flat out lies being the only thing we see."

Keri Hilson displayed a fake baby bump prosthetic on social media, which sparked a wild debate among her followers.

The semi-retired singer/songwriter uploaded photos that show her cradling a baby bump, resembling a 5-6 month pregnancy.

She didn't caption the images, which left her followers with many unanswered questions. She also shared a video, which she captioned with laughing emojis.

According to Page Six, Hilson is not pregnant.

Hilson, 38, captioned the clip with a whimsical [emojis] which could mean literally anything — but a peruse of her Instagram history seems to disprove the notion that Hilson is pregnant, given that two weeks ago she was posting swimsuit pics displaying a rather flat stomach.

Page Six theorized that Hilson is playing a prank on her followers.

Could Hilson be donning a prosthetic baby bump for a TV or film role? Per IMDB, her most recent credit is in a film called “Don't Waste Your Pretty," based on a novel of the same name, which is slated for a 2021 release, though according to one site, production on the film wrapped in August.

Keri Hilson was a fresh faced newcomer more than a decade ago when her record label told her to diss then-superstar Beyonce Knowles on a track.

In an interview with Claudia Jordan, Hilson recalled dissing Beyonce on her song "Turning M On" and how the fake beef hurt her spirit.

Hilson claims her label made her diss Beyonce, and she was too young and insecure to tell them no.

Hilson, a 37-year-old Sagittarius, said she took a 9-year hiatus from music to heal herself due to clinical depression.

She said she contemplated quitting the business altogether. "I just knew I needed time to get back to myself."

Hilson said she was "incredibly" unhappy following the breakup of an 11-year relationship.

"I was 17 to 28 years old in that relationship, so I did not know life alone. I did not know and love and accept myself. I didn't know who the hell I was."

Ironically, her husband, Tommicus, also asked for prayers after a woman allegedly shopped a video that shows him in a compromising position with someone other than his wife.

"The devil is busy and will not win," he wrote in a since-deleted post. "Please pray for my family and especially my wife while she's pregnant. This too shall pass. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate."

Tommicus, 39, captioned his post: "I love my family. I pray my wife does not go into preterm labor & my son healthy. God fix it & bless my enemies. Amen."

Instagram bloggers who viewed the tape said the thrusting man resembled Tommicus.

According to Sandrarose.com readers: LeToya unfollowed Tommicus on social media.

LeToya is 39 years old and she's been through one divorce already. Hopefully she will come to her senses. A good man is so hard to find these days.
