In an awesome video that ends with President Obama dropping the invisible mic in his hand, the POTUS and Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda teamed up for a freestyle on Monday.
In case you’re unaware, Hamilton is an impossible ticket to get, unless you’re the President and the cast performs several hits from the Broadway show in the East Room. And for an encore? They took it out back for a little freestyle rap…
Raffi Freedman-Gurspan has officially been appointed as the White House's primary LGBT Liaison by President Barack Obama making her the first transgender person to have this role bestowed upon them.
This is a big win for the LGBT community, and leaders within that community have nodded their heads in approval of the announcement.
“Raffi is a great choice,” said Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality. “President Obama has said he wants his administration to look like America, and they have moved to include trans Americans. Raffi’s skills and personality make her the exact right person for this important job.”
Raffi Freedman-Gurspan has already broken ground bybeing the first transgender White House staff member, having been appointed in 2015 as the outreach and recruitment director of the presidential personnel office. She has now become the main point of contact in office for the LGBT community.
You can’t go anywhere these days without seeing some kind of political sign, so much so that they all blend together after awhile. That is, unless you were in Collinsville, Illinois this week.
Someone took a unique angle to get their point across that they didn’t exactly agree with Bernie Sanders and what his political policies entail as far as they understand them.
We’re nonpartisan here, but we ran this by our team and everyone — Sanders supporters and others — all agreed: It doesn’t matter if you’re for Sanders, against Sanders, or indifferent, this is pretty dang clever…
Considering how weird the 2016 Presidential campaigns have already been, the fact that someone decided to imagine all the candidates with beards really isn’t that strange. What is strange are the results.
Joshua Steimle, CEO and founder of MWI, a digital marketing company, was coming up with marketing ideas for a client and decided that he wanted to know what the 2016 Presidential candidates would look like with beards. So he went ahead and created them himself for all the candidates…all of them.
In other words, he found a way to make this election even scarier than it already is.
Although we will never know how it feels to be president, it’s safe to assume it’s not exactly a job you can leave at the office at the end of the day. It’s stressful. It’s dangerous. It’s the most public position in the world, and years in the White House can age you quicker than one would like.
It also places a lot of stress on the first family. You know how you get stressed out at work and take it out on your significant other? Now imagine that you are the president.
That’s why it’s so neat that, after 23 years of marriage, the Obamas still have that spark. The proof is in the pictures…
On Oct. 18, 1992, the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, married First Lady Michelle Obama.
Donald Trump’s life has always been ripe for parody.
Johnny Depp thinks so, too. And Patton Oswalt. And Ron Howard. And Henry Winkler. And the other celebrities who star in Funny Or Die’s 80’s-style “TV movie” take on Trump’s seminal business book, “The Art of the Deal.”
No matter how you feel about Trump, the parody has a little something for everyone.
And yeah, that’s Johnny Depp as Trump pictured above. He’s basically unrecognizable, which lets you totally tune out that one of Hollywood’s hunks is playing the Trumpster.
