It looks like someone poisoned the entertainment well with conservative ideology. On Sunday morning, former NFL star and Kim Kardashian-boyfriend Reggie Bush went into a conservative line of questioning over the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
“This might be a dumb question so I’m apologizing ahead of time but who audits the IRS?” Bush asked via Twitter. “How do we know exactly where our tax dollars go and that they are being used the right way?”
Bush, aligning himself with the principle of fiscal responsibility, makes a great point about the abundance of monetary waste and lack of real transparency in our federal tax system.
In March, superstar rapper Cardi B made a similar argument in a video rant that went viral on social media.
“Aight, so you know the government is taking 40 percent of my taxes, and Uncle Sam, I want to know what you’re doing with my f****** tax money, because you know what I’m sayin’, like, when you donate, like, when you donate to a kid from a foreign country, they give you updates of what they doing with your donation,” she said in the video, adding, “I want to know what you’re doing with my f****** tax money, because I’m from New York and the streets is always dirty, we was voted the dirtiest city in America. What is y’all doing?”
As noted by Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro, Congress could help this problem by ending “the process of tax withholding and instead force everyone to sign a check personally to the government. Then we might be ready for some real conversations about serious spending.”
Moreover, the new wildly successful “Roseanne” reboot also shook-up the entertainment world, showcasing a family where there are actual Trump supporters who aren’t depicted as despicable racists but human beings.
But perhaps the biggest shake-up in the entertainment world has been from rapper Kanye West. Recently, the performer and fashion designer has advocated for freedom of thought, aligned himself with conservative thinkers, and even dared to question the stronghold the Democrat Party has on black Americans.
