Trump Urged People to Submit Their Entries for the MAGA Rap Challenge and It Backfired Spectacularly
President Donald Trump set Twitter ablaze after announcing the #MAGACHALLENGE, a rap challenge encouraging his supporters to serenade him with supportive lyrics. Soon, the hashtag climbed to the top of Twitter's trending topics.
Trump promised that he'd announce the winners and arrange a meeting and performance with them at the White House. He didn't say when he'd announce or when the meeting would be.
Barbados native Rihanna joined a growing list of musical artists telling President Donald Trump to stop playing their music at his Make America Great Again rallies. The move came after journalist Philip Rucker posted a tweet about Trump's Tennessee rally on Sunday.
Rucker took to Twitter and said:
If you’ve got an aphid problem in your garden and depend on ladybugs for eradication, you might do well to turn down your radio. At least, that’s what’s indicated by a July study published in the journal Ecology and Evolution, overturning once and for all AC/DC’s 1980 claim that “rock ‘n’ roll ain’t noise pollution.”
In a unique experiment, researchers at Mississippi State University placed ladybugs and aphid-infested soybean plants in chambers outfitted with computer speakers and an iPhone, which then played everything from rock and country music to folk-punk and just plain industrial sounds like car horns and jackhammers.
