Jack White, former member of the rock duo The White Stripes, has voiced his disdain for celebrities Guy Fieri, Joe Rogan, Mark Wahlberg and Mel Gibson after they were seen interacting with President Donald J Trump in Las Vegas over the weekend at a UFC event, according to reports from Fox News.

Taking to his Instagram account, White expressed his strong sentiments towards those who “normalize” or show any level of respect to Trump. He referred to the former president as a “disgusting fascist, racist, con man, disgusting piece of sh*t,” and condemned Fieri, Gibson, Rogan, and Wahlberg for their interactions with him.

White made it clear that his statement was not up for discussion or debate, concluding with “This is a statement from me, not a discussion/debate. -Jack White III.”

White shared photos of each of the men engaging with Trump at the UFC fight. However, in a ridiculous but classic Trump hating manner, one of the images White shared showed Gibson at a different UFC event in 2021.

Additionally, Trump advisor Steven Cheung posted a video of Trump shaking hands with Rogan during the event. Another image shared by senior Trump advisor Jason Miller showed Gibson and Wahlberg in close proximity to the former president. Miller humorously referred to the pair as “the second and third most-famous stars in Las Vegas tonight!”

Furthermore, Miller posted an image of Trump engaged in conversation with Fieri during the same night. Fieri recently appeared on “Fox & Friends” to engage in conversation about the growing inflation and the impact is has on the restaurant industry.

It is noteworthy that Trump has been a frequent attendee of multiple UFC events, both during his time as president and beyond. These appearances have often witnessed him mingling with a diverse array of celebrities, including renowned former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.

Adding to the spectacle of the evening, South Africa’s victorious middleweight fighter Dricus Du Plessis made an unprecedented move by leaping over the cage to extend a handshake to Trump, as well as UFC president Dana White, following his triumph over Robert Whittaker.

The criticism voiced by Jack White towards Fieri, Gibson, Rogan, and Wahlberg serves as a testament to the enduring divisions and polarization associated with Trump’s presidency.

Elizabeth Warren Acknowledges Unintended Consequences of Obamacare



Elizabeth Warren

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a longtime supporter of the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, is now acknowledging the unintended consequences of the healthcare legislation, particularly its impact on industry consolidation and rising healthcare prices.

Warren, who has been a vocal proponent of Obamacare, has recently had what the Wall Street Journal reported as an “epiphany” regarding the consequences of the healthcare law. In a letter addressed to the Health and Human Services Department inspector general, Warren, along with Senator Mike Braun of Indiana, expressed concerns about vertically-integrated healthcare companies potentially increasing prescription drug costs and evading federal regulations.

According to reports from Fox News, the bipartisan letter highlighted issues with the nation’s largest health insurers allegedly bypassing Obamacare’s medical loss ratio (MLR). According to Warren, these insurers, through vertical integration, have manipulated the system, leading to “sky-high prescription drug costs and excessive corporate profits.”

The senators detailed how conglomerates, like UnitedHealth Group, with ownership across various healthcare sectors, could inflate medical payments to pharmacies and, by realizing those payments on the pharmacy side, appear to comply with MLR requirements while retaining more profits.

Moreover, despite the Democrats’ argument that the MLR would benefit patients, it has incentivized insurers to merge with or acquire pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), retail and specialty pharmacies, and healthcare providers. This, in turn, has made healthcare spending less transparent, as insurers can allegedly shift profits to their affiliates by increasing reimbursements.

Warren, who has consistently voted against Obamacare repeal efforts, notably advocated for a “Medicare for All” proposal during her 2020 presidential campaign. Despite her prior support for the healthcare law, Warren’s recent concerns about its unintended consequences have raised questions about the long-term effects of Obamacare and its impact on the healthcare industry.
