President Obama’s former photographer posted a photo response to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) and musicians Ted Nugent and Kid Rock mocking a portrait of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a White House visit on Thursday. Pete Souza´s photo, posted to Instagram, shows Obama sitting with his White House chief of staff Bill Daley beneath a portrait of former President Ronald Reagan. Palin and Nugent can be seen in their Thursday photo standing beside Clinton’s official first lady portrait while making exaggerated gestures as Kid Rock stands with his arms folded.

I took my kids on a White House tour just after that portrait was installed early in the Bush administration. It´s at the start of the tour just as one enters the White House so its one of the first things a visitor sees. What I thought was so funny is that it´s opposite the display of the china from past presidents. She will forever look at it longingly.

...I realize that the Daily Mail refers to it as "mocking", but I think everyone from the left is just winding themselves up a bit too tight...

...Kid Rock has his arms crossed, Nugent is holding his jacket lapel and Palin doesn´t want her hand in front of Ted´s crotch...

...and I pulled out my magnifying glass and no, she isn´t even flipping Hillary...

...how long before it can be rotated OUT..?

The Souza “response” to the Palin-Nugent-Rock carrying the annotation “Being respectful” has no significance because it is comparing apples to oranges. The individuals in front of the Hillary Clinton portrait, as celebrities, do not command the “formality” expected of a President as displayed in front of the portrait of President Ronald Reagan.

So why did Hillary get a WH portrait? She was not elected to Preezy or VicePreezy? Does SOS or Jr NY Senator get you a WH portrait? I would think the portrait w/b of Pres BJ with his wife Hillary sitting in a chair by his side - not alone as if she got there by herself?

#9, There have been First Lady portraits in the White House apaprently since Martha Washington. https://www.whitehousehistory.org/galleries/first-lady-portraits

I have never been all that Never-Sarah. I also have a sense of humor. But I doubt the President himself was very happy about these particular highjinx being published, so for me--the point goes to Souza.

This gang is a bit too Jacksonian for me and I would like the White House restored to dignity and respect. Maybe they should have designated times for horsing around in the Oval Office and White House (talking to you too, Ivanka) before which the participants would be frisked for cameras and smart phones.

Washington - First lady Melania Trump spent part of her Friday crafting at the Children´s National Health System in Washington, working with the children as they colored a floral coloring sheet with a pink marker and bonding with one girl who was celebrating a birthday. "My birthday was this Wednesday," she told the girl. The table of crafters continued to talk about birthdays, including President Donald Trump´s, which is in June. "He´s 70," the first lady said when asked how old her husband is. She asked the children their favorite books and singers, and after several minutes of crafting, she

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Thursday that while North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may be a ruthless, murderous dictator, he is not mentally insane. "All indications are that he is not crazy," Tillerson told Fox News. "He may be ruthless. He may be a murderer. He may be someone who in many respects we would say by our standards is irrational. But he is not insane." The secretary of state also said Thursday that the U.S. would prefer to resolve the ongoing nuclear proliferation standoff with North Korea through direct talks.

At a lunch at the White House on Monday with more than a dozen UN ambassadors, President Trump poked some fun at his own UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. [video] "Does everybody like Nikki?" Trump asked the assembled ambassadors as Haley sat by his side. Amid laughter Trump added: "Otherwise, she can easily be replaced." Cue awkward laughter. Now, Trump was joking. And everyone in the room -- including Haley -- understood that. But, that doesn´t mean he was entirely kidding. Two things we know about Trump suggest that beneath his attempt at humor was a hard-edged point. First, we know

Washington - During an appearance on a panel discussion in Germany on Tuesday, Ivanka Trump was booed and hissed at when she offered a defense of her father´s policies regarding paid leave for women in the workplace. "That is something I´m very proud of my father´s advocacy, long before he came into the presidency, he championed this in the primaries," Ivanka Trump said of President Trump. "He´s been a tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive." She was interrupted at that point.

BUDAPEST, Hungary — Hungary’s headstrong nationalist prime minister and Hungary’s most famous expatriate liberal billionaire are on a collision course in a battle over the future of a school. Protesters pledged to keep demonstrating against the government even after Prime Minister Viktor Orban pushed through legislation that critics fear could shut down a university founded by American-Hungarian investor and Democratic Party power broker George Soros. Mr. Soros has attracted staunch supporters and bitter critics in the U.S. with his willingness to put his fortune at the service of his liberal principles.

The United States is preparing charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, CNN reported Thursday. U.S. officials familiar with the matter told CNN that prosecutors have found a way to move forward, after struggling to determine whether the First Amended protected Assange from prosecution. The Justice Department´s investigation of WikiLeaks can be traced back to 2010, after thousands of U.S. government files stolen by former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning appeared on the website. According to CNN, former President Obama´s Justice Department decided not to pursue charges against Assange because other mainstream publications also decided to publish the documents.

Liberals believe they are smarter than the rest of us. They believe that ordinary people should have little say in politics, because the so-called intellectuals know better. That is the essential appeal of liberalism to most of its followers. It's nice to believe that you are smarter than everyone else. But it's not true. That complex liberal mind, so intent on demonstrating its own superiority, has not governed well. Based on the record of the past century, since the time of Woodrow Wilson in America and Mussolini in Europe, liberal rule has resulted in nothing but war, recession, and social division.world of joy

Saturday marks President Trump’s 100th day in office, and to celebrate the occasion he got a bit too candid in an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Obviously certain elements of being president are pretty fun, but President Trump has discovered that it isn’t all playing with trucks and pressing a button that makes Cokes appear. Sometimes there’s work to be done, and as it turns out being leader of the free world is a lot harder than running a fake university and playing a caricature of a rich person on TV.“I loved my previous life.

He has floated some conspiracy theories for years, but now President Donald Trump will get to play a crucial role in the long-running saga over the government´s Kennedy assassination records. The 1992 JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, signed by President George H.W. Bush, set a 25-year timetable for declassification of assassination records dealing with President Kennedy. The law set up a single collection of records at the National Archives, and set up a process for declassification.

Britain’s largest national student union has told attendees of its annual conference they would face “consequences” for cheering and clapping because these forms of expression exclude deaf people. The National Union of Students (NUS), which includes most university student unions, held a two-day conference on Tuesday. During the conference, audience members were repeatedly warned that they must stop whooping and expressing support for a speaker because it has “serious impact” on the accessibility of the conference, The Daily Telegraph reported. Instead of clapping, the students were advised to use “jazz hands” – a gesture when people wave their hands in
