It’s after work on a beautiful afternoon and I’m patiently awaiting the opportune time to leave, so I can arrive on “Phil Time” to dinner. I decide while I wait, I might as well listen to the new Skrillex and Rick Ross track “Purple Lamborghini (currently have it on replay) and catch up on the world news. I read an article on ForeignPolicy.com by Siobhan O’Grady about President Hollande, the president of France. He comments about Donald Trump’s recent attacks concerning the Khan family, the Muslim American parents of a fallen U.S. Army soldier. I’m intrigued.
President Hollande considers the comments made by Trump “excesses that make you want to retch.” GET’EM PRESIDENT! OUI!
But that isn’t the best part… The most chilling quote from President Hollande was “ Should the American people choose Trump, there will be consequences, because a U.S. election is a global election.”
WOAH! Let that marinate…
Do you see how powerful that is? Equating an American election to that of a GLOBAL ELECTION… The mind blowing part is that it’s not even an exaggeration.
America is everywhere. With the world’s largest economic, military, and entertainment sectors, it is almost foolish for anyone to claim U.S. influence is not felt everywhere in the world. So with that in mind, I strongly question why anyone supports a man whose idea of putting “America First” is criticizing an American Family who gave the ultimate sacrifice of defending their country. I don’t get it. I don’t. I never will.
The U.S. is not in a position to think our actions will not have ramifications in the rest of the world. We’re way past that.
What was that mention of Purple Lamborghini?
I’m glad you reminded me! While the critic reviews for Suicide Squad are poor, have no fear because Purple Lamborghini is a BANGER. The subject matter is typical Rick Rozay, but behind the Skrillex produced beat it feels like a new side of Mr. Teflon Don. I’m a huge fan of hip-hop/ edm collaborations and this one does not disappoint. I also highly recommend watching the music video. How in the world does this song connect to President Hollande’s quote or elections? To be honest, nothing…Unless you get “Gotham City” vibes when you think about who could potentially be in the White House January 2017.
