Lady Gaga calls for Donald Trump to be impeached


Lady Gaga has called for President Donald Trump to be impeached.
The 34-year-old singer wants the Commander-in-Chief removed from his final weeks in office following rioting at the Capitol building earlier this week but explained to her followers that it wouldn’t be appropriate to use the 25th amendment – which would see the vice president take control if the president is deemed “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office” – because it wouldn’t stop him from running for office again in the future, whereas impeachment could.
She tweeted: “I hope we focus to impeach Trump so Congress has the constitutional authority to possibly disqualify him from future election — the #25thAmendment doesn’t disqualify him. He incited domestic terror—how much more violence needs to happen? This is terrorism.”
If a president is impeached and removed from their position – which would requite two-thirds of the Senate to agree – they can be disqualified from holding any office in the future, if a majority vote agrees.
The ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker also used her Twitter account to praise the efforts of Black women in Georgia, including Stacey Abrams, for helping secure wins for the Democrats in the runoff election, and insisted the shocking scenes of protests earlier in the week wouldn’t “undo” their efforts.
She wrote: “I believe the change that so many wish for exists in the work of Black Women activating Georgia. White Supremacy responded as it does often with little repercussions, like on 1/6/21. But this will not undo their work.”
During the riots, Trump’s Twitter account was suspended after he posted a video asking his supporters to stand down, but also telling them he “loved” them and that they were “special”, as well as repeating his unfounded claims the election had been “stolen” from him.
While his temporary band on the microblogging platform is now up, he has been warned he faces a “permanent” ban if he continues to flout rules, and Facebook have announced he will no longer have an active account on their platform until “at least” his term is up.
No one said Hollywood movies had to be documentaries, but biopics should at least be mostly based in fact. Not so with these ones: these films contained several historical inaccuracies and played fast and loose with the truth.
Maria Bakalova landed the role of a lifetime when she was just a young, aspiring actress in Bulgaria.

This Netflix drama is out to provoke. As angry, smart and dark as Parasite, it explores the horrors of one country’s class system (in this case, India’s caste system), while also putting racial oppression, high-end political corruption and global economic trends centre stage. The film’s anti-hero and narrator, Balram (newcomer Adarsh Gourav), declares, “White people are on the way out. They’re finished within a lifetime. It’s the century of the…
