The Obamas have returned from their post-White House vacation, and they are getting back to work and looking for some new employees. The ´Office of Barack and Michelle´ put out a listing for interns to work directly with the Washington-based power couple. Exactly what the tasks will be is unclear, but Michelle and Barack have a number of speaking engagements planned and will each be writing books in the coming months. Responsibilities listed in the job position include tasks focused on correspondence, and they are looking for people who ´take initiate, manage their time well, have strong attention to detail,
There is a Seinfeld episode for almost any issue. In this case, one is reminded of Kramerica, Kramer´s non-company, where he obtained an intern from Columbia University. The intern went to prison for helping Kramer drop a large, oil filled beach ball full of oil, to test Kramer´s idea on making oil tankers rupture proof. The ball was dropped from a building housing George´s employer, a toy company. (the ball hit Jerry´s girlfriend, who had a talking stomach gurgle. Helloooo!)
A young boy went out of his way to call CNN “fake news” Monday morning. Our story’s hero — who appears to be one of the children present at Monday’s White House Easter Egg Roll — snuck into the background of a live shot featuring CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta. As Acosta broke down the Vice President Mike Pence’s trip to North Korea, the kid slid out from behind Acosta, threw up the X and mouthed “fake news,” twice. It should be noted that the child might have been saying “f* you,” not “fake news,” as reported by

Tickets may be refunded at the point of purchase.

A new Pepsi ad featuring fashion model and reality TV star Kendall Jenner participating in a glamorous photo shoot as the streets around her flood with political protestors has sparked a debate on social media. The ad shows Jenner, 21, ditching her high-fashion photo shoot to join the masses and then appearing to bring an end to the protest by sharing a Pepsi with a police officer.

The New York Times and CBS News published vicious hit pieces on The Wounded Warrior Project in early 2016. Recently the injured veterans charity was exonerated. But The New York Times and CBS have yet to post corrections to their smear reports. Meanwhile, wounded veterans suffer. Here are a few snippets from Freedom Daily on the controversy. The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) has been helping injured veterans since its inception in 2003, 2 years after the deadly terror attacks that rocked the nation on 9-11. Since its inception, the organization became the #1 veterans charity in the world. This year,
Friday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin made the case that President Donald Trump’s reaction to House Speaker Paul Ryan’s decision not to proceed with the House GOP’s legislative effort to repeal and replace Obamacare was a positive. Levin called it “actually outstanding” and likened that leadership style to former President Dwight Eisenhower. “I thought the president’s comments today were actually outstanding,” Levin said. “And he showed enormous humility. And this guy doesn’t give up. I mean, he said OK, we’ll fight another day. In essence, he said that events will reach a point where this
Some conservatives in Washington were fuming on Tuesday after an Obamacare rollback bill was tweaked by Republican leaders to delete a provision meant to crack down on illegal immigrants getting federal healthcare insurance coverage. The development posed another problem for Republican leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives and President Donald Trump, who are trying to win congressional approval of the wider bill, the first big legislative test for Trump since taking office. The provision would have allowed the Treasury Department to access data at the Department of Homeland Security to verify that healthcare tax credits went only to U.S.
McDonald´s in a tweet on its corporate account called President Trump "a disgusting excuse of a President" on Thursday morning. The tweet, which was briefly pinned to the top of the account before being deleted, mocked Trump and called for the return of former President Obama. "@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands," the tweet read. Trump was once in a commercial for the fast food giant, and has posted images eating McDonald´s food on his social media accounts during his campaign.
Nordstrom insists its line of Ivanka Trump products, ranging from professional sheath dresses and black pumps, wasn’t selling well, so it had to be dropped. So what did it pick up? High-wasted, acid-washed mom jeans, complete with see-through knees, selling for $95 a pop. Made by Topshop — a hip British retailer — the jeans feature clear, plastic kneecap covers, sewn into the fabric. Nordstrom.com says the jeans have a “futuristic feel.” Even the liberal Huffington Post is questioning why. Begging for someone to put a stop to the madness, Huffington Post writer Carly Ledbetter penned, “Have you ever thought
House Speaker Ryan should resign his post, says Lou Dobbs, the radio host, and anchor of Lou Dobbs Tonight on Fox Business Network. Dobbs Tweeted his resignation call Tuesday morning after Breitbart posted a pre-election recording of Ryan saying he would never defend President Donald Trump, and as multiple GOP legislators walked away from Ryan’s Obamacare replacement proposal, the American Health Care Act. In the audiotape, recorded Oct. 10, 2016, Ryan told his fellow GOP legislators that ““I am not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future.” Ryan spoke shortly after the public heard the Access Hollywood
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Monday that he is “not prepared” to vote for the House GOP ObamaCare replacement bill “as it is right now.” “I’m not prepared to vote for it as it is right now, and I think that’s not because of a specific ‘this is unacceptable’ but because I think we can do better,” Issa said on Fox News. Most of the Republican resistance to the bill has come from conservatives who blast it as "ObamaCare lite." But the comments from Issa, one of the most vulnerable House Republicans in next year’s elections, highlight that those in
A carjacker became enraged and shot a motorist in front of his wife and child because the would-be thief was unable to drive a stick shift transmission, police say. The murder occurred in Houston, Texas, on March 11 when Pedro Aguilar, 47, was standing near his car with his wife and 10-year-old daughter. They family was then approached by two men reportedly in the 20s. The men pulled a gun on Aguilar and demanded his car keys. But neither of the assailants could get the car in gear using its manual transmission. According to ABC 13, the pair became enraged
They´ve spent the last month quietly recuperating in French Polynesia since leaving the White House earlier this year. But Barack and Michelle Obama interrupted the quiet island life they´ve become accustomed to this weekend with a star-studded jaunt out to sea. The former First Couple joined Bruce Springsteen Tom Hanks and their wives on music mogul David Geffen´s superyacht Rising Sun on Friday, making quite the splash as they arrived at the vessel off the island of Mo´orea in a spruced up speedboat. Once on board, the Obama´s played tourists, posing romantically on the upper deck while they had their
No President in American history has ever golfed more per week than Donald Trump. In his first 12 weeks in office Trump took a staggering 18 golf course trips. That´s unheard of. In his first 12 weeks in office, President Obama didn´t visit a single golf course. By the end of this year, it´s likely that Trump will have golfed more than President Obama has in his entire presidency. And that´s strange. It´s really strange. Because Donald Trump and other conservative pundits seemed to be deeply bothered by the times President Obama went out and golfed. It appeared to genuinely offend
A review of the surveillance material flagged by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes shows no inappropriate action by Susan Rice or any other Obama administration official, Republican and Democratic Congressional aides who have been briefed on the matter told NBC News. (Snip) "I saw no evidence of any wrongdoing," said one U.S. official who reviewed the documents, who would not agree to be identified further. "It was all completely normal." His assessment was shared by a senior Republican aide who had been briefed on the matter but declined to speak on the record. The finding by lawmakers of both parties
Donald J. Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in November came as a shock to the world. Polls, news reports and everything the Clinton campaign was hearing in the final days pointed to her becoming the first female president in American history. In their compelling new book, “Shattered,” the journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes write that Clinton’s loss suddenly made sense of all the reporting they had been doing for a year and a half — reporting that had turned up all sorts of “foreboding signs” that often seemed at odds, in real time, with indications that Clinton was the favorite
Hillary Clinton phoned Barack Obama on election night after conceding defeat and told him: ‘I’m sorry’. The Democratic Presidential candidate stepped into an anteroom for the conversation to apologize for losing to Donald Trump in a conversation which has never previously been reported. As she took the call Clinton knew she had ‘let her country down’ and that Obama’s legacy lay ‘shattered at Donald Trump’s feet’, a new book reveals. Minutes earlier Clinton had called Trump and suppressed ‘the anger that touched every nerve in her body’ as she conceded. She said: ‘Congratulations, Donald. ‘I’ll be supportive of the country’s success and that means
Variety magazine’s Co-Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller, in a tweet promoting a new specialty issue, asked the public to answer this question about Chelsea Clinton, “How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover? Read her great interview with @RaminSetoodeh in tomorrow’s issue!” (Photos/Tweet) Clinton is one of six women featured individually on separate covers of the Variety specialty issue along with Jessica Chastain, Gayle King, Blake Lively, Audra McDonald and Shari Redstone.

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore says he’s “on fire” creatively in his “Easter Dinner Reflections” Facebook post. Why? It’s all about “removing a sitting president,” he says in his @mmflint Twitter promo for the Facebook commentary. Moore’s just not sure what the best media vehicle is for him to “take him down." He explains in his “Reflections”: “I think I need to make a movie. Or bring back my weekly series to TV. Or stand on a stage and howl. Or something. Or anything. Or all of it.” Moore ponders his options: "Can a simple movie actually bring down a sitting
Dan Rather said on CNN’s Reliable Sources this morning that people are being too quick to praise Donald Trump as presidential for dropping bombs. The most notable example of this in the past two weeks was CNN’s own Fareed Zakaria saying that Trump “became president” in response to the Syria strike. Rather did not mention Zakaria specifically, but he did say, “Dropping bombs, having missile strikes, doesn’t make one presidential.” He said it’s way too early for that kind of rhetoric, because the question really is whether you can “keep the peace” afterwards. Stelter asked Rather if journalists have a tendency
By all accounts, Jared Kushner, the husband of President Trump´s favorite daughter, has become an extraordinarily powerful man in the White House. To formally appoint Kushner a senior adviser, with a top security clearance, the president sought and received a Justice Department opinion declaring the White House exempt from federal anti-nepotism laws. That meant Kushner could have an official White House title to go along with his trusted-member-of-the-family influence.
CNN´s Fareed Zakaria discusses his experience with "Trump derangement syndrome," where people´s hatred and anger towards the president is so intense that it impairs their judgment. He talks about Obama speechwriters attacking Trump for doing exactly what President Obama would have done in Syria. "And then came the strike against Syria. On that issue, Trump appears to have listened carefully to his senior national security professionals, reversed his ealier positions, chosen a calibrated response, and acted swiftly. I supported the strike, and pointed out both in print and on air that Trump was finally being presidential because the action ´seemed
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump enlisted the services of Risa Heller, a New York City public relations figure known for her work with Democrats — including former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Gov. David Paterson (D-NY) — when they came to Washington to take up their official posts in the Trump White House, according to a report in Buzzfeed. The revelation came amid reports that a New York City set with a history of friendly ties to the Democratic party is gaining traction in President Donald Trump’s White House, much to the
Corruption on Capitol Hill is “worse than you think,” Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., insists. “When you first get here, you think that you are in some sort of fairy-tale novel,” Buck said. “They wine and dine you and they show you just exactly what it’s like if you play the game. It’s a wonderful life.” Things quickly change, however, if “you don’t play the game.” “If you don’t play the game … it becomes a much less conformable existence here,” Buck said. (Snip) Buck said his book addresses corruption present in government today that he was not prepared for after being elected to
