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. Souza is known to use his Instagram

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.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon celebrated Chief of Staff John Kelly’s ability to prevent Ivanka Trump from influencing her father through unscheduled emotion-laden visits to the oval office. “Those days are over when Ivanka can run in and lay her head on the [president’s] desk and cry,” Bannon told multiple people, according to The New York Times. Bannon, who saw his influence decrease after the conclusion of President Donald Trump’s campaign, often lamented Ivanka’s presidential access. Bannon viewed Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, whom he referred to as “Javanka,” as a political liability and likely to alienate

Remember when we agreed a while ago we should leave Barron Trump alone? Back in January, in response to people making jokes at Barron’s expense (including an SNL writer who later apologized), the White House put out a statement basically asking the public if we could all just please leave him alone. Well, behold this ridiculous take from The Daily Caller today: I’ve been on the Barron Trump train from the start, but it’s about time the president’s son starts dressing the part… Barron was returning to the White House from New Jersey on Sunday and while the president and first lady

The Trump administration is increasing the number of troops in Afghanistan and, by doing so, keeping us involved even longer in a 16-year-old war that has long since gone past its time. The mission in Afghanistan has lost its purpose, and I think it is a terrible idea to send any more troops into that war. It’s time to come home now. Our war in Afghanistan began in a proper fashion. We were attacked on 9/11. The Taliban, who then controlled Afghanistan, were harboring al Qaeda, and after being warned, and after an authorization from Congress, our military executed a plan to

President Trump defied expert advice Monday by peering directly into the sun as the solar eclipse passed over Washington, DC. Trump was photographed taking in the historic event from the White House with his son Barron and first lady Melania, who threw on a pair of black shades. The trio walked out onto the Blue Room balcony just before 2:40 p.m., as the president gesticulated to the crowd below and looked up — directly at the sun — while pointing at the sky. As he did so, a White House aide shouted, “Don’t look!” About a minute later, Trump put

Few would deny the comedic genius of Jerry Lewis, who died Sunday at age 91. But there is one movie in his slapstick-riddled filmography that drew no laughs — partly because it is so distasteful, partly because, at the behest of Lewis himself, it is never officially screened. It’s 1972’s “The Day the Clown Cried,” an attempt at a serious Holocaust film that Lewis directed and starred in. The movie centers around German circus clown Helmut Doork, played by Lewis, who insults Adolph Hitler, gets sent to a concentration camp and is then charged with

President Trump´s decision on how to approach the conflict in Afghanistan spawned internal feuds that contributed to a recent sense of chaos in the White House, but his announcement of the end result could present him with an opportunity to project strength and stabilize his presidency. Trump will unveil the U.S. strategy for South Asia and discuss North Korea in a formal address Monday evening, during which he is expected to announce an increase in American troops heading to Afghanistan. The prime-time speech will cap off months of debate over whether a deeper commitment to the 16-year conflict would contradict Trump´s

More F-35 stealth fighters could be soon deployed to Korea and Japan, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported Monday. The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, with a maximum speed of around Mach 1.6, is a single-seat, single-engine multirole fighter that could be deployed by the dozens in Northeast Asia, according to the report. By the early 2020s, the United States, Japan and South Korea could have more than 100 F-35 joint strike fighters stationed close to North Korea, Popular Mechanics reported. A squadron of the fighter jets is already stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni in Japan

Cambridge University Press, the world´s oldest publishing house, has changed its mind on censoring content in China. The 485-year-old publisher, based in Ebgland, had agreed to suppress access to 300 articles from The China Quarterly that dealt with subjects sensitive to the Chinese authorities, including the Tiananmen Square massacre. China said the publisher would not be able to publish other material in the country if it didn´t concur. But it reversed its decision after a petition Monday signed by more than 600 academics from around the world protested what they called China´s attempts to "export its censorship on

This morning, Meet the Press host Chuck Todd was hoping that he’d be able to speak to a current Republican member of Congress or White House official in the wake of President Donald Trump’s explosive “both sides” comments about the violence in Charlottesville. But, alas, Todd revealed that none of them answered the call to show up this week. Therefore, Todd on brought former Congressman JC Watts, who was first elected to Congress in 1995 and served in House leadership for a few years.

And so it begins! Since officially leaving the White House role of Chief Strategist on Friday, Steve Bannon has raised a lot of eyebrows. Within hours of news breaking of his departure, it was announced that Bannon would be returning to his role in running what he described as an “alt-Right haven” Breitbart.com. The editors of Breitbart were reportedly thrilled with Bannon’s return and very publicly called for a #WAR and going “thermonuclear” against the “globalists” behind Bannon’s departure. After leaving the White House, Bannon has stirred the pot, notably saying that the “Trump presidency that we fought for,

Steve Bannon might not be part of the Trump administration anymore, but if his exit interview is any indication, whatever chaos exists inside the White House won’t go away any time soon. In a statement to Washington Post, Bannon spoke about Trump’s efforts to reconcile his nationalist campaign promises with the priorities of moderate, traditional Republicans on Capitol Hill. Trump is still trying to get his legislative agenda underway, but a combination of repeated failures and political troubles like the aftermath of Charlottesville have become a hinderance to government cohesion. Bannon blamed much of this discord on Republican leaders, telling

Two members of the Kennedy family were arrested for disorderly conduct near the family’s famed compound on Cape Cod, according to police. Max Kennedy, the 52-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and a noise violation around 1 a.m. Sunday morning after reports of loud partying, Barnstable Police told the Boston Herald. His daughter Caroline, a 22-year-old California resident, was also arrested at a home a short walk from the main Kennedy compound.

WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump´s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast. Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex´´ Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year.

According to Ryan, the Republicans had no chance at the White House, so at the very least they should try to retain their House majority. The directive came during a conference call, Gohmert told The Daily Caller in a video interview and then confirmed again during his appearance on "Fox & Friends" Sunday.

For WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, it was an especially awe-inspiring event. The famed meteorologist hugged and high-fived people around him and wept as the eclipse occurred Monday afternoon. "Oh, my word," Skilling said. "Wow. This is amazing. What do you think of this, this?" At another point, he told viewers, "I´ll get my act together, guys." His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:

Trust in the mass media is at an all-time low. Two-thirds of Americans believe the mainstream press publishes fake news. Yes, there’s still much good journalism to be found, if you know where to look. Yet, ask reporters who’ve been around a while, and many will tell you that a lot of good journalism is being left unpublished. Good journalists hate what’s happening to the news. We have only ourselves to blame. Firewalls that once strictly separated news from opinion have been replaced by hopelessly blurred lines. Once-forbidden practices such as editorializing within straight news reports, and the inclusion of opinions as if

Some tweets referring to their visit also suggested the white high school girls should be beaten up.
