America Ferrara Writes Letter To Trump: ‘Thank You For Mobilizing Latino Voters’

The latest celebrity to weigh in on presidential candidate Donald Trump’s recent remarks about illegal immigrants did so via an open letter published Thursday by the Huffington Post. America Ferrara, known for her leading role in the ABC series Ugly Betty, took a different approach with her criticism than fellow Latina actress Eva Longoria.

As Western Journalism reported, Longoria suggested that both Trump and Adolf Hitler relied on “just words” to spread a dangerous ideology. From her headline, one might assume Ferrara’s take is completely contrary to Longoria’s.

Her letter bears the title “Thank You, Donald Trump!” and goes on to describe how she believes Trump’s rhetoric will compel even more Hispanic voters to make their way to the polls next November.

“Here we are pounding the pavement to get American Latinos to the polls,” she wrote, “while your tactic proves the most effective.”

Ferrara cited Trump and other candidates she claims campaign “on a platform of hateful rhetoric,” explaining they are alienating a growing voting bloc at their own peril.

“This is the America we are actually living in,” she continued. “I hope by now you understand that without the Latino vote, there is no chance of you ever winning this election.”

While she claimed Trump is “living in an outdated fantasy of a bigoted America,” many obviously still embrace the ideals he expressed. One Huffington Post reader, for example, took exception to another comment complaining of the “GOP hate parade” to which Trump ostensibly belongs.

“I didnt [sic] know being against illegal immigrants who dont [sic] belong here so that america [sic] could be stronger was a ‘hate parade,’” he wrote. “But of course your idea of just paying for everyone who can hop, skip, jump, or swim across the border is also good.”

This Hollywood Actress Just Attacked Donald Trump, Disgustingly Compared Him To This

The backlash against presidential candidate Donald Trump’s recent tirade against illegal Mexican immigrants continued this week with both NBC and Macy’s severing ties with the controversial figure.

In trademark Trump fashion, he has responded to both former business partners publicly. He asserted in a subsequent statement that they “totally caved at the first sight of potential difficulty with special interest groups who are nothing more than professional agitators, who are not looking out for the people they purport to represent, but only for themselves.”

Trump’s vocal critics continue to multiply, however, as actress Eva Longoria proved in her recent remarks on the issue.

“What I think he doesn’t understand and what people don’t understand is words create emotional poison,” she said, going on to assert that “Hitler moved a nation with words, just words.”

After effectively equating Trump’s defense of strong borders with the annihilation of millions of innocent men, women, and children, Longoria suggested that he deserves any and all criticism he gets.

“If you say something like that,” she concluded, “as he has said, you must expect a backlash.”

Though some in the audience at the National Association of Latino Independent Producers event likely shared Longoria’s cynicism, she obviously failed to resonate with many Americans.

Several Breitbart readers echoed one commenter, who wrote: “I love it when Hollywood does this. It just erodes their stature and reveals their true ignorance.”

Boom: Trump Just Responded To NBC Cutting Ties With This Epic Takedown

Years ago, NBC and Donald Trump formed a partnership that produced the Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants as well as the successful series The Apprentice and its spinoff, Celebrity Apprentice. Since announcing his presidential candidacy, however, the professional relationship has strained to the point of dissolution.

Trump faced backlash over recent campaign statements critical of America’s broken immigration system. The criticism led to Spanish-language cable network Univision opting not to air content from the Miss Universe Organization. News broke Monday that NBC decided to follow suit and cut all ties with the real estate mogul.

The network explained the decision in a statement:

At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.

The reliably outspoken Trump, however, quickly responded with a statement of his own. In it, he stood by his previous comments while denigrating the corporate character of his former network partner.

“As of today,” the statement began, “Donald J. Trump is no longer affiliated with NBC. Mr. Trump stands by his statements on illegal immigration, which are accurate. NBC is weak, and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct – that is why our country is in serious trouble.”

Immediate response among Trump’s Facebook followers expressed overwhelming disapproval of NBC’s action.

“Sick of this politically correct crap,” one reader wrote.

Another chimed in: “NBC is so irrelevant, keep it up Donald!”

Exec Is In Hot Water For Sharing Offensive Photo Comparing Trump To THIS Person

Following a speech in which Donald Trump expressed criticism of Mexico for its role in exacerbating America’s border crisis, the 2016 presidential candidate began a public battle with Spanish language network Univision.

The first blow came from Univision, which announced it would no longer partner with or air any content from the Miss Universe Organization. Trump owns a stake in the company along with NBCUniversal.

Trump struck back, however, by announcing his intention to sue the network for breach of contract. He went even further in a letter to Univision President and CEO Randy Falco. In it, Trump explained that all network employees are now banned from the National Doral golf resort he owns in Miami, Fla.

As an added gibe, Trump included the following postscript:

Please congratulate your Mexican Government officials for having made such outstanding trade deals with the United States. However, inform them that should I become President, those days are over. We are bringing jobs back to the U.S. Also, a meaningful border will be immediately created, not the laughingstock that currently exists.

Univision President of Programming and Content Alberto Ciurana escalated the feud exponentially, however, with an Instagram post comparing Trump to Charleston, S.C., shooting suspect Dylann Roof.

He has since offered a bilingual statement on the matter, stating that he was “upset by Mr [sic] Trump’s recent comments about Mexican immigrants,” but acknowledging that he “should not have re-posted the photo.”

Trump followed that statement with one of his own.

“Apology not accepted,” he asserted. “I call for his resignation as president of Univision and Univision should not be allowed to host the Presidential debate. It is a total conflict of interest.”

Trump Just Exposed The Famous Musician Who Attacked Him As A Hypocrite With 2 Photos

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called out Neil Young on Fox News “for being a hypocrite” after the rock icon complained about the real estate mogul using his song during the latter’s presidential announcement earlier this month.

Trump announced his presidential candidacy in Manhattan last Tuesday, playing Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World” midway through his speech. Young said Trump did not have permission to use the song and endorsed Democrat Bernie Sanders shortly thereafter, The Associated Press reported. But Trump took to Twitter, noting he met with Young recently and had photographic evidence to prove it.

Gretchen Carlson followed up with Trump, asking about the details of the meeting. “It’s crazy,” Trump said Thursday. “I hardly know Neil Young. He calls me up. He comes over to my office. He wants me to go into a deal. He wants me to give him five million dollars to some ridiculous deal. I’m very nice. I sorta like his music. It’s good. It’s fine. I don’t even like that song that much. I used it as background music.”

He called me about two weeks ago. He wanted me to go to his concert at Jones Beach. He called me. Then he heard the song. It wasn’t really him, I don’t think, I think it was his manager. He figured he could get some free publicity off of Trump. So he hears the song. It’s one of ten songs.It was background music.

And we used it, and they said ‘Oh, we don’t want that to be used.’ And that’s okay. By the way, I had the legal right to use it. But I wouldn’t use it if they don’t’ wanna do that. But here’s a guy, comes to my office, wants five million dollars for this ridiculous project. I didn’t say yes, no, or anything. I sorta just forgot about it.

Then he calls me and wants me to come to the Jones Beach concert and that was like a week and a half ago. And then all of the sudden he’s complaining because I used background music that I had the legal right to use. I didn’t have to ask him. I had the legal to use it. So I figure, at least I have to call out Neil Young as being a hypocrite.
