Barack Obama Salutes Dwayne Wade For His Final Home Game [Video]

Dwayne Wade has played his final game at the American Airlines Arena and was given a proper send off. Barack Obama put ample respect on the the star shooting guard’s name.

As spotted on Hot New Hip Hop the former POTUS was of many to commend Wade on his 16 years in the NBA. The savvy politician sent his respect and regards via a pre-taped video that was played in front of the sold out crowd on Tuesday, April 9 when the Heat played the Philadelphia 76ers. As expected, Barack’s message was delivered with love, admiration and his signature approach to humor.

“D-Wade! Congratulations on a great run. Now, I know what you’re going through, because saying goodbye to a career that you love is never easy. I’ve been there. In my case though, I didn’t really have a choice. My knees were shot so I had to give up basketball forever” he joked.

Barack also highlighted Dwayne’s indelible integrity during the second portion of the tribute. “You, on the other hand, look like you’re still hooping out there, and I imagine it’s a little tougher when you just completed one of the greatest careers in NBA history. For 16 years you’ve given us high-wire dunks, big shots in big moments, more blocks than any guard in history, you were willing to sacrifice your body in the lane and sometimes sacrifice your ego in pursuit of a title. Whenever you got knocked down you always showed us how to get back up. You showed some Chicago spirit in you, and you did us proud” he added.

The night prior a formal party was hosted in his honor with several a-list of celebrities in the house. In true Miami fashion the likes of Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Chris Bosh, Fat Joe, Erik Spoelstra and Pat Riley partied in all white. You can view Barack’s touching video message below.

Grammys 2019 Fashion Review: Cardi B on the Half Shell, Michelle Obama on Stage

Typically, it’s awards season’s loudest red carpet. But Sunday night’s Grammys fashion was unusually quiet — and covered up.
Without Beyonce, Rihanna, Taylor Swift or Ariana Grande, who ditched the awards show after creative differences with producers (but wore her Zac Posen gown on Instagram anyway), the diva quotient was down, with only Cardi B’s meme-generating vintage 1995 Thierry Mugler Venus on the half shell look, and Janelle Monae’s sharp-shouldered Jean Paul Gaultier couture minidress to get armchair critics going.
Even Lady Gaga, who famously arrived at the 2011 Grammys in an Armani egg pod, played it relatively safe (she’s a movie star now, after all), wearing a silver, side-ruffle gown by Hedi Slimane for Celine (a no-brainer given that she attended his first women’s ready-to-wear show in October).
Long gone were the nearly nude looks of years past; instead of baring her naval in daring green Versace circa 2000, Jennifer Lopez went with a modest, crystal-embellished mint green Ralph and Russo column gown, and covered her face with a wide-brim hat; Miley Cyrus worked an oversized circa 2019 Mugler suit with a side of cleavage, and H.E.R. was outfitted in a custom Coach purple jacquard jumpsuit.

President Barack Obama Tells Dems To Move On Beyond Him, Focus On Future

Campaign for Governor of New Jersey

Source: Dennis Van Tine/Future Image/WENN.com / WENN

It is one of the toughest pills to swallow but the current political times have many wishing for days of old when President Barack Obama was in the Oval Office. Since that won’t happen, the former Commander-In-Chief offered some tough love to members of his party at a California DNC fundraiser.

CNN Politics reports:

Obama peppered his 45-minute appearance with subtle knocks for despondent Democrats, warning that it is not enough to lament Donald Trump’s presidency or complain about the impact he is having on the country. Instead, a tie-less and visibly relaxed Obama urged Democrats to back up those concerns with action and avoid the belief that the party is bound to defeat Republicans in November.

“If what you are doing requires no sacrifice at all, then you can do more,” Obama told the tony crowd at a sweeping multi-million-dollar Beverly Hills home. “If you are one of these folks who is watching cable news at your cocktail parties with your friends and you are saying ‘civilization is collapsing’ and you are nervous and worried, but that is not where you are putting all your time, energy and money, then either you don’t actually think civilization is collapsing … or you are not pushing yourself hard enough and I would push harder.”

At one point, he turned to the crowd and declared, “Enough moping, this is a mope-free zone.”

The outlet added in its reporting that Christina Aguilera was also a guest at the event, with Obama using that fact to note that politics is more about the glitz and glamour and about doing work at the polls and in the community.

Michelle Obama Wears Milly Dress in Official Portrait

A REAL FRAME JOB: Milly founder Michelle Smith was first tipped that Michelle Obama would be wearing one of her dresses for an official portrait six months ago. Obama’s stylist Meredith Koop had put the word out but the designer had no idea Monday would be the official unveiling of artists Amy Sherald’s painting at the National Portrait Gallery.
Smith said via Monday e-mail, “I just arrived in Paris for work, so I found out with everyone else. I was in a shop buying jeans when my p.r. called. I started flipping out at the cash wrap.”
She said she was so honored to “be a small part of American history and most importantly, the Obama legacy. The Obamas will be remembered for breaking down barriers within race, gender and sexual orientation. They will be remembered for their humanity and kindness.”
Smith, whose art collection includes work from John Baldessari, Natasha Law, Margeaux Walter and Tony Scherman, has collaborated with artist and filmmaker Laurie Simmons (better known as Lena Dunham’s mother), and graffiti artists Michael De Feo and Peter Miser for different projects. She was also high on the former First Couple’s choices of artists — Sherald and Kehinde Wiley. “Each has a very distinctive, personal

Barack Obama Pays Homage To Martin Luther King, Jr.

It’s another Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and along with the day off from work, for some, we’re getting the usual pullquotes and nods to the iconic Civil Rights revolutionary. While sometimes the praise rings hollow—see Donald Trump’s recent signing with a litany of step’n fetch itsPresident Barack Obama‘s homage to MLK rang sincere. 

“Dr. King was 26 when the Montgomery bus boycott began. He started small, rallying others who believed their efforts mattered, pressing on through challenges and doubts to change our world for the better. A permanent inspiration for the rest of us to keep pushing towards justice,” tweeted the last legitimate President of the United States.

Bet he didn’t have to Google Dr. King to create that message.

As for Donald Trump, besides a couple of tweets out his ass about DACA this morning, he RT’d the White House’s cheesy weekly address. .

Barack Obama Chooses Culture Artist Kehinde Wiley To Paint His Presidential Portrait

While Donald Trump continues to go out of his way to destroy Barack Obama‘s legacy, the 44th President of The United States is choosing to have his likeness immortalized on a canvas by none other than Kehinde Wiley.

The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery has announced that Kehinde Wiley has been tapped to paint the official presidential portrait of the last real President the country has known.

Kehinde Wiley is known for his large-scale portraits of young Black men wearing the latest in Hip-Hop attire. Some of his more notable work includes portraits of The Notorious B.I.G., Michael Jackson, LL Cool J and other music legends.

For the portrait of Michelle Obama, Amy Sherald has been tapped to capture the grace of the former First Lady.

Needless to say, we can’t wait to lay eyes on the final product.

Don’t be surprised if Donald Trump taps Bob Ross to do his presidential portrait when his time comes.*

Barack Obama Gave Trump A Letter With Advice, Cheeto Clearly Paid No Attention

Barack Obama gave Donald Trump plenty of advice in the Inauguration Day Letter he gave the newly elected President. It should come as no surprise that Cheeto clearly paid no heed to the sterling advice.

The letter has recently become public, and it reads like a perfect outline on how not to f*ck up your epic new gig as POTUS.

Obama offered this particularly poignant passage:

Third, we are just temporary occupants of this office. That makes us guardians of those democratic institutions and traditions — like rule of law, separation of powers, equal protection and civil liberties — that our forebears fought and bled for. Regardless of the push and pull of daily politics, it’s up to us to leave those instruments of our democracy at least as strong as we found them.

Considering Trump fired James Comey for daring to investigate possible Russian collusion in our election and that he pardoned the racist ex-Sheriff Arpaio, he must have missed that part of the letter.

Read the full letter below. Obama, forever and always Presidential.

Dear Mr. President –

Congratulations on a remarkable run. Millions have placed their hopes in you, and all of us, regardless of party, should hope for expanded prosperity and security during your tenure.

This is a unique office, without a clear blueprint for success, so I don’t know that any advice from me will be particularly helpful. Still, let me offer a few reflections from the past 8 years.

First, we’ve both been blessed, in different ways, with great good fortune. Not everyone is so lucky. It’s up to us to do everything we can (to) build more ladders of success for every child and family that’s willing to work hard.

Second, American leadership in this world really is indispensable. It’s up to us, through action and example, to sustain the international order that’s expanded steadily since the end of the Cold War, and upon which our own wealth and safety depend.

Third, we are just temporary occupants of this office. That makes us guardians of those democratic institutions and traditions — like rule of law, separation of powers, equal protection and civil liberties — that our forebears fought and bled for. Regardless of the push and pull of daily politics, it’s up to us to leave those instruments of our democracy at least as strong as we found them.

And finally, take time, in the rush of events and responsibilities, for friends and family. They’ll get you through the inevitable rough patches.

Michelle and I wish you and Melania the very best as you embark on this great adventure, and know that we stand ready to help in any ways which we can.

Good luck and Godspeed,

BO

Obama Gives Kanye West Some Advice About Getting Into Politics

President Barack Obama gave Kanye West some advice about getting elected on Saturday. 

The rapper recently announced he was running for president in 2020. Obama, alluding to the inability of House Republicans to find a new speaker, suggested Kanye could be a candidate for that position instead.

“You may have heard that Kanye is thinking about running for Speaker of the House. It couldn’t get any stranger,” Obama said at a fundraiser in San Francisco. He dispensed some tips ”in case Kanye is serious about this whole POTUS thing, or as Kanye calls it, ‘Peezy.'”

“Do you really think this country is going to elect a black guy from the south side of Chicago with a funny name to be president of the United States?” Obama said. “That’s cray.”

“Saying you have a beautiful dark twisted fantasy — that’s what’s known as ‘off message’ in politics,” he continued.

Obama also suggested that West’s appearances on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” might serve him well in politics.

“You got to deal with strange characters who behave as if they are on a reality TV show,” Obama said.

“It couldn’t get any stranger. But in case Kanye is serious about this whole POTUS thing I do have some advice for him.”

First of all, you have to spend some time dealing with some strange characters who act like they’re on a reality TV show. You gotta be cool with that.

Second important tip: Saying you have a beautiful dark twisted fantasy — that’s what’s known as off message in politics, People have lost congressional seats that way.

And number three: Do you really think this country’s going to elect a black guy from the South Side of Chicago with a funny name to be president of the U.S.? That’s crazy. Cray.”

Kanye West was set to perform at the Fundraiser, with his wife Kim Kardashian as well as the Golden State Warriors present in the audience.

What Did Kanye Give Obama at the DNC Fundraiser?

While Kanye West received some advice from President Obama today at the Democratic National Convention Fundraiser, he definitely had something in return for it. West sent the current Commander-in-Chief back to Washington with two pairs of Yeezy Boosts, Ye’s latest sneakers with Adidas.

West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, took a photo of the two pairs of sneakers with Obama’s name on them. The picture ended up on Twitter with the caption “Special Delivery”.

President Obama: Wizard or Failure?

Russia is moving into Old Syria. Iran already owns the parts of Old Iraq that ISIS and the Kurds do not. Israel fears that the nuclear deal with Iran is a mistake of unthinkable proportions.

The data suggests that President Obama is a total failure when it comes to the Middle East.

Or… he is one of the most gifted wizards of persuasion and strategy our generation has ever seen.

The data fits both interpretations. You already know the interpretation that says Obama failed. Allow me to give you another interpretation – one that isn’t necessarily true – but happens to fit the data.

And the fun part is that we can make predictions based on both filters and see which one does the best job of explaining our reality. Just for fun. Don’t get your opinions on world politics from cartoonists.

The Master Wizard Hypothesis says there are people so skilled in the art of persuasion that they control world events while sometimes pretending they are inept, to cover their tracks.

The Master Wizard filter says that President Obama – magnificent bastard and Commander in Chief – just suckered Russia and Iran into the quicksand while taking The United States out of an endless and unwinnable fight.

And … doomed ISIS in the process.

The United States can’t defeat ISIS militarily because doing so would require killing too many civilians. Russia and Iran will have fewer problems in that regard because they control their media and their leaders don’t need to ask permission.

And let’s say you want to build a virtual wall around ISIS to contain them. You would need a substantial military power to guard the coast.

You need Russia. 

Right where they are deploying.

The Master Wizard filter says President Obama has a winning plan for eradicating ISIS at the lowest cost for Americans. America’s frenemies have now encircled ISIS, and the American media with their freedom of the press will not be there to watch what happens next.

ISIS is reportedly planting landmines around captured cities to keep the civilian population from escaping. They expected the United States to avoid bombing population centers. 

They were right.

But they they did not expect the United States to turn over the fight to Russia and Iran.

ISIS is done. 

Unfortunately, so is the civilian population in ISIS-held territory. But living under ISIS probably isn’t much of a life either. And I have heard no one suggest a more humane solution.

The Master Wizard filter says President Obama either created this perfect situation or recognized the opportunity and encouraged it. 

That would be totally bad-ass. 

The Master Wizard filter also says Iran and the United States are cooperating behind the scenes and getting more comfortable as allies. In the long run, Iran was going to get a nuke if it wanted one. A Master Wizard of Persuasion would seek to keep his enemies close, where persuasion works best. Distance and non-contact are the enemies of persuasion. According to the Master Wizard filter, building an active engagement with Iran, combined with skillful persuasion, reduces risk. (Only a Master Wizard could feel confident in that plan.)

I’m not saying the Master Wizard interpretation of reality is true. I’m just saying the data fits the interpretation. We shall see what the future holds.

Donald Trump, another skilled deal-maker and persuader, also favors walling off ISIS territory to strangle them. In Trump’s case there is also a branding benefit when you define a border. One side can be TERRIBLE while the other is FABULOUS.

Update: Iran’s Supreme Leaders banned further negotiating with the United States because he says we are trying to “influence” Iran. Have you ever heard language like that before?

Barack And Michelle Obama Celebrate 23rd Wedding Anniversary

President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary on Saturday.

The two were married on Oct. 3, 1992, at Trinity United Church in Chicago. A year later, Michelle apparently forgot the couple’s first wedding anniversary.

Over time, Michelle has said that she has learned to forgive some of the president’s habits.

“What I’ve come to find is, you don’t sweat the small stuff,” she told Ellen DeGeneres in March. “The journey that we’ve taken together, the fun we’ve had, the challenges we’ve faced, the two beautiful children that we’re raising — I kind of give him a pass now when he leaves his socks on the floor or tells that story for the one hundredth time and wants us to laugh at it as if we first heard it.”

Happy anniversary!

News in Brief: Man Can’t Believe Obama Would Use Tragedy To Push Anti-Tragedy Agenda

SEDALIA, MO—Following yesterday’s speech by the president addressing the recent events in Roseburg, OR, local 42-year-old Tim Moss expressed his outrage to reporters that President Obama was attempting to capitalize off a tragedy to push his anti-tragedy agenda. “It’s just disgusting and shameful that, once again, the first thing out of Obama’s mouth after a tragedy is that he wants to limit tragedies,” said Moss, adding that it is both insensitive and opportunistic of the president to suddenly shift the conversation toward curbing the number of tragedies as the nation mourns in the wake of this tragedy. “Every single time this happens, he makes the tragedy all about clamping down on tragedies, and it’s simply not the time or the place for him to be going in front of the camera and pushing for steps to decrease the number of tragedies.

Michelle Obama Wows In Black Vera Wang Dress At State Dinner

Michelle Obama made a jaw-dropping appearance alongside President Barack Obama as they welcomed Chinese President Xi Jinping to the White House for the State Dinner on Friday. Dressed in a custom, off-the-shoulder black Vera Wang gown, FLOTUS’ famously-toned arms were on full display.

She first teased her glamorous evening attire on Instagram while giving us a “first glance” at the State Dinner. Even though the photo was taken in a dimly lit dining room, we were still able to see Obama’s stunning side-swept curls and nude nail polish color.

This isn’t the first time that FLOTUS has worn the Chinese-American designer’s pieces for a major fête, as she donned a similar off-the-shoulder Wang dress at this year’s Kennedy Center Honors. Yet, the mermaid fit and tulle skirt of this State Dinner gown proves why she tops our list of the best-dressed first ladies. 

Do you agree?

Obama Vs. Iran – Who is the Wizard?

This is a good time to remind you that the Master Wizard Hypothesis I have been blogging about is for entertainment, not enlightenment. Truth is probably at a different URL. And I remind you that you should never take advice from cartoonists on issues such as nuclear proliferation. That is just one example.

The larger context of the Master Wizard Hypothesis is showing you some of the science-tested methods of persuasion on display from various leaders. The fun part (I hope) is seeing how well my predictions fit the data compared to whatever crystal ball you were using before. (None of this should be confused with science.)

That said… 

A popular American view of the Iran nuclear deal is that President Obama, a Kenyan Muslim, has gutted our government from within and now he is surrendering to Iran, a sworn enemy that plans to destroy us, and themselves at the same time, because someone picked the wrong God. 

The weaker view is that Obama unnecessarily made a bad deal that exposes Israel and the United States to catastrophic risk. Those sanctions would have worked in the long run, say this group of critics. Or maybe we could have looked extra-hard and found everything that needed a good bombing. Any military action would presumably continue forever because if we stopped bombing Iran, one assumes they might get all revengy. Realistically, once you start bombing, you have to keep that line item in the budget forever. But it might be better than nuclear annihilation, say the critics.

Then there are the optimists who assume our government would not agree to the deal we have been shown, so surely there must be lots of secret side deals that make Iran and America allies behind the scenes. I want to believe that version, so look for my cognitive bias as I tell you how this deal looks through the Master Wizard filter.

For starters, I have blogged that Obama is a Master Wizard of persuasion. He uses the same science-tested tools of persuasion that Trump uses, and to similar good effect. That is all described in the backlog of my blog here. (#Trump)

So we know we have in Obama a Master Wizard on one side of the Iran deal. According to the Master Wizard Hypothesis, The United States almost certainly “won” the negotiations even if the information that has been made public does not support that view. A Master Wizard would not lose a negotiation against an untrained opponent. (Even if he was not in the same room.)

But what if you have a Master Wizard on the other side? Wizard-on-Wizard is harder to predict. To dig into that question, I give you three quotes from Iranian President Rouhani, from his 60 Minutes Interview. Then I explain his technique.

Rouhani: “Of course, for reaching trust between the U.S. and Iran, there is need for a lot of time.”

Persuasion Method: Big Picture Maneuver. He takes us to a perspective where everyone agrees that if you wait long enough, anything can change. And we know patience is a good thing. The first person in a conversation to use the big picture maneuver always sounds like the wisest person in the room. In this case, our egos recognize Rouhani’s linguistic challenge to rise to his big-picture level of wisdom, and we do so automatically. We are wired to do so. Knowing it is a persuasion method does not protect you from the effect.

Rouhani: “The enmity that existed between the United States and Iran over the decades , the distance, the disagreements, the lack of trust, will not go away soon. What’s important is which direction we are heading? Are we heading towards amplifying the enmity or decreasing this enmity? I believe we have taken the first steps towards decreasing this enmity.

Persuasion Method: Big Picture Maneuver again. The first person in a conversation to say some version of “The direction of things matters most” always sounds the wisest. Your ego is triggered to join Rouhani on the level of wise people who understand that life is about direction, not destination. And by now Rouhani has established a pattern of saying big picture things that make you agree. Every time you agree with one thing – no matter how trivial – it primes you to agree with the next. So using the big picture maneuver more than once compounds its power by creating a pattern in your mind.

Rouhani: “We cannot forget the past, but at the same time our gaze must be towards the future.”

Persuasion Method: That sentence is a tell for a Master Wizard. It is engineered to a degree that made me tingle when I read it. I think I could write a thesis on it, but here are a few standout points:

1. “Cannot forget the past” will be processed by most brains as “forget the past.” Rouhani needs both sides to forget the past in order to move on. But on the surface he must say we “cannot forget” because that agrees with what everyone believes, so we let in that agreeable thought without editing. Once past your guard, the word “cannot” dissolves. What is left is “forget the past.”

2. Rouhani uses at least three Big Picture Maneuvers in one interview. All three get at the same issue of being patient and moving slowly in the right direction. But because each of Rouhani’s quotes comes at it differently, it is like working your abs with three exercises instead of one. Rouhani came at Kroft with a hat trick of Big Picture Maneuvers that he finished off in one perfect thought: “We cannot forget the past, but at the same time our gaze must be towards the future.”

My Verdict: Rouhani is a Master Wizard.

Okay, okay. I know what you are thinking. You’re thinking that none of this matters because Rouhani is not the real power in Iran. The real decisions come from The Supreme Leader, Khamenei. 

That was certainly the case with Iran’s last president. That guy didn’t seem to have much power.

But the last president wasn’t a Master Wizard. Look for Khamenei to support whatever deal Rouhani makes.

Huckabee: Obama Nominated Openly Gay Army Head To ‘Appease Homosexuals’

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Saturday said the nomination of the openly gay Eric Fanning as the secretary of the U.S. Army was an attempt by the president to “appease” gay Americans and accused him of using the military for social experiments.

“It’s clear President Obama is more interested in appeasing America’s homosexuals than honoring America’s heroes. Veterans suicide is out-of-control and military readiness is dangerously low,” Huckabee, who is running for president, said in a statement. “Yet Obama is so obsessed with pandering to liberal interest groups he’s nominated an openly gay civilian to run the Army. Homosexuality is not a job qualification. The U.S. military is designed to keep American safe and complete combat missions, not conduct social experiments.”

Huckabee has also used the “social experiment” line to refer to the idea of trans people serving openly in the military.

Fanning, who currently serves as acting undersecretary of the Army and chief management officer, has deep experience in the military. Before his current position, he served in several high level roles, including special assistant to Defense Secretary Ash Carter and undersecretary of the Air Force.

While Huckabee may be deeply concerned about Fanning’s appointment, the Army doesn’t really seem to be. Defense Secretary Ash Carter called him “one of our country’s most knowledgeable, dedicated, and experienced public servants.”

Phil Carter, a veteran of the war in Iraq and senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security, also said Fanning’s appointment wouldn’t be controversial in the Army.

“My sense is that the Army is over this and has been over it for some time,” he told The Washington Post. “The Army cares whether you can shoot straight, not whether you are straight.”

Meanwhile, LGBT advocacy groups hailed the positive impact that Fanning’s nomination would have on servicemembers. Fanning would be the first openly gay secretary of one of the military branches if confirmed by the Senate.

“Considering the tremendous struggles that LGBT Americans have faced within the Department of Defense, Fanning’s nomination is deeply significant,” Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign, told The Huffington Post. “This is a sign of hope and a demonstration of continued progress towards fairness and equality in our nation’s armed forces.”

Obama the Stealth Wizard

If you have been following my posts on Master Wizards that use hypnosis and persuasion tricks to control the entire world, you might have seen some tells in the Iran nuke deal. 

Disclaimer: This is for entertainment only. There is no scientific evidence to support the Master Wizard hypothesis. The fun is comparing this filter to your current one to see which explains the data better.

When most of the public heard about the Iran nuke deal, they saw a mortal enemy getting a free pass to build a nuclear weapon, albeit perhaps at a slower pace. That seems like a bad deal if you imagine there was some practical way to stop all of the Iranian nuclear advancements.

The government must be crazy!

But if you view the deal through the filter of the Master Wizard hypothesis, you see something entirely different.

What I see is one of the best wizards of all time (President Obama) convincing an enemy (Iran) that they are actually an ally. In other words, he did not change their minds about the world; rather he changed their minds about who they are. That’s what wizards do. 

The method (wizard-wise) is ridiculously easy. All you do is seed the situation by treating them like an ally, behind the scenes, without asking much in return. Humans are wired to see helpful people as allies. There isn’t much else to it.

This differs from appeasement. With appeasement, you make the mistake of hoping a genocidal killer has somehow changed his mind on his own for no particular reason. That’s a bad bet.  

With the wizard model, the wizard changes the dictator’s self-image. Once you change a person’s self-image, that person will act in a way that is consistent with the new self-image. According to the Master Wizard hypothesis, Obama could make that happen by engineering a linguistic virus and infecting just one or two top Iranian leaders. They would in turn infect the rest.

As an example, here’s a linguistic virus that would do it: “The past is done. Today we have more common interests than we have reasons to disagree. We ask that you treat us as friends.”

There’s a lot of engineering in those three sentences. By now my regular readers should be able to see the scaffolding.

If you are surprised that Colin Powell came out in support of the Iran nuke deal, don’t be. He sees behind the curtain.

Scarface Talks Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton & Why Donald Trump Is A Genius (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Hip Hop fans know Scarface is not one to hold his tongue. The rap legend sat down with The Unlikely Show with Chuck Creekmur and Nida Khan, and the conversation covered the current state of American politics.

[ALSO READ: Scarface: I Don’t Like The Geto Boys Or None Of Those Albums]

As the 2016 presidential campaign heats up, Face had a lot to say about leading candidates Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton. He also mentioned the current man in the White House – President Barack Obama.

“I said that I wouldn’t vote for Obama, because I love him, and they’re gonna want him hanged after that,” said Scarface referring to lyrics from his Emeritus album. “I said that sh*t way before he was the president.”

Clinton is currently the favorite to replace Obama as the next presidential nominee of the Democratic Party. The former Secretary of State has been facing criticism for using a personal email server. But she has consistently claimed none of the messages were marked classified.

“Hillary’s getting f*cked with behind emails,” stated Scarface. “Who gives a f*ck about an email? Was it kiddie porn or some sh*t? Do we have a f*cking problem?”

When it came to controversial Republican front-runner Donald Trump, Face offered an explanation for why the businessman/reality TV star is connecting with certain voters.

“I think Donald Trump is a genius. I think he’s a gazillionaire for a reason,” said the Houston native. “I think he may say some sh*t that’s offensive. I think he is unapologetic, because he’s f*cking rich.”

Scarface added, “I’m not advocating a motherf*cking thing about Donald Trump. But I see his vision, and I know what his aim is. Does that sh*t help us in our position where we are today? No, because we don’t have the money to invest in the sh*t he’s getting ready to put together.”

Scarface’s Deeply Rooted album is scheduled for release on September 4.

Obama Dropping The N-Word Is Important, But Not For The Reason You Think

“Decoded” breaks down President Obama’s use of the n-word in a recent interview.
News

Watch Obama Discuss Climate Change With Naturalist Sir David Attenborough

President Barack Obama is a major fan of Sir David Attenborough, the celebrated British naturalist and TV host who has created and narrated numerous science and nature documentaries for the BBC.

According to The Guardian, Obama invited Attenborough to the White House in May to celebrate Attenborough’s 89th birthday. While there, the two taped an interview, in which Obama turned the tables and interviewed Attenborough, telling him that he grew up watching Attenborough’s programs.

“I’ve been a huge admirer of your work for a very long time,” Obama told Attenborough. “You’ve been a great educator as well as a great naturalist.”

The two discussed climate change, and Obama lamented what he sees as slow progress toward combating the issue.

“We’re not moving as fast as we need to, and part of what I know from watching your programs, and all the great work you’ve done, is that these ecosystems are all interconnected,” Obama said. “If just one country is doing the right thing, but other countries are not, then we’re not going to solve the problem. We’re going to have to have a global solution to this.”

Obama asked Attenborough what he thinks needs to be done in the fight against climate change.

“If we find ways of generating and storing power from renewable resources, we will make the problem with oil and coal disappear because economically, we’ll wish to use these other methods,” Attenborough said. “If we do that, a huge step will be taken in solving the problems of the Earth. I think what’s required is an understanding and a gut feeling that the natural world is part of your inheritance. This is the only planet we’ve got and we’ve got to protect it. And people do feel that, deeply and instinctively, it is after all where you go in moments of celebration and in moments of grief.”

Obama also discussed during the interview how growing up in Hawaii and Indonesia gave him a greater appreciation of the environment.

Attenborough, a Cambridge-educated naturalist, has been creating and hosting science and nature-related programming since 1954. His shows have won numerous awards, and he has become a vocal environmentalist. He is known for his distinctive voice as a narrator.

The Guardian reported that despite his long career, Attenborough had never visited the White House, and he said Obama’s invitation was “a considerable surprise.” The interview will air simultaneously on BBC 1 in the United Kingdom and BBC America in the United States on Sunday.

This is not the first time Obama has turned the tables on a notable television figure he admires. In March, he interviewed David Simon, creator of HBO’s “The Wire,” about criminal justice reform, and told Simon that “The Wire” is his favorite TV show.

Watch a clip of Obama’s interview with Attenborough above.

Obama Heckled By Undocumented LGBT Activist Protesting Deportations

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama was heckled Wednesday during a White House event honoring LGBT Pride Month by an undocumented LGBT activist protesting his administration’s policies on deportation and undocumented LGBT immigrants.

“Not one more deportation!” Jennicet Gutiérrez shouted, before being escorted from the room by Secret Service agents.

Obama appeared angry at the interruption and addressed Gutiérrez directly. “No, no, no. Listen, you’re in my house. It’s not respectful. Shame on you. You shouldn’t be doing this,” he said.

Gutiérrez, a 29-year-old transgender woman, came to the U.S. from Mexico when she was 15. She is in the process of getting a green card through her sister, but is currently undocumented. At Wednesday’s event, she said she intended to deliver a letter bringing the abuse of undocumented LGBT immigrants to Obama’s attention.

“The letter is asking to release our communities from detention centers and to stop deportation,” Gutiérrez said in an interview before the event.

The Williams Institute estimated in 2013 that there were 267,000 adult undocumented immigrants in the U.S. who identified as LGBT.

The Department of Homeland Security recognizes LGBT individuals as a “special vulnerability,” which officers are instructed to consider when making decisions on detention and deportation.

But LGBT people are nevertheless detained, despite the risk of abuse in holding facilities. Immigration and Customs Enforcement holds about 75 transgender immigrants each night, most of them transgender women seeking asylum, according to report by Fusion published in November. The report found that many transgender women are housed with men, and one in five confirmed sexual assaults within the facilities involved a transgender woman, according to Fusion.

Reps. Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.), Michael Honda (D-Calif.) and 33 other House Democrats signed a letter this week asking Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to improve treatment of LGBT people by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

“The alarming rates of sexual assaults of non-heterosexual detainees should be a wakeup call for ICE,” Honda said in a statement. “Even more dire is the fact ICE continues to detain transgender women in men’s detention facilities. ICE has the power to determine suitable alternatives to detain LGBT persons, but instead they continue to ignore safer alternatives. Our letter calls on ICE to use the power they have to create a safer and more humane alternative that will treat LGBT individuals with respect and dignity.”

Obama briefly addressed immigration in his remarks at Wednesday’s event. “Those of us who know freedom and opportunity thanks to the toil and blood of those who came before us, we have an extra responsibility to extend freedom to those who are still marginalized,” Obama said, mentioning “immigrants who deserve a pathway to be able to, to get right with the law,” among other groups.

UPDATE: 7:30 p.m. — After the event, Gutierrez said in a statement that she was disappointed by Obama’s response.

“I am outraged at the lack of leadership that Obama demonstrated,” she said. “He had no concern for the way that LGBTQ detainees are suffering. As a transwoman, the misgendering and the physical and sexual abuse — these are serious crimes that we face in detention centers. How can that be ignored?”

Sometimes Obama Is Just A Dad Too

President Barack Obama’s father left him and his mother when he was just a young child, and as president he has made a regular effort to spend time with his family every day.

On Father’s Day, here are some glimpses of Obama just being a dad.

He’s really proud of his daughters

obama family

Despite living in the White House, Obama says that his two daughters, Malia, 16, and Sasha, 14, are actually pretty normal.

“The truth is the girls are wonderful,” Obama told “Extra,” earlier this month. “You know they work hard, they work a lot harder than I ever did when I was a kid.”

“Most importantly, they’re kind, they’re respectful, they don’t have an attitude,” he said. “Partly because maybe my mother-in-law was here, you know we say we don’t want to see any attitude out of them. And they’ve been terrific.”

He wants his daughters to make as much as their male counterparts

As president, Obama has backed legislation to get equal pay for women and has framed the issue as a personal one for him.

“Why would I want my spouse or my daughter discriminated against? That doesn’t make any sense,” he said in April.

He’s got pretty good dating advice

Obama often jokes about the Secret Service detail that he has following his daughters around, but when it comes to dating, he has said that he wants to be hands off.

“What I’ve told them before is, as long as that young man is showing you respect, and is kind to you, then I’m not going to be hovering over every second,” he told television host Steve Harvey in 2013.

Obama also said that it was “a little bit jarring” to see Malia in heels for the first time when she attended her first prom last year.

He helped coach Sasha’s basketball team to a championship

obama coach

In 2012, Obama said that he helped the head coach of Sasha’s basketball team run through practice drills on their way to winning a tournament championship. Obama also once filled in coaching for the team on short notice.

His daughters still think he is embarrassing

obama turkey pardon

Obama told Extra earlier this month that Sasha and Malia still are embarrassed by him. Some of that may have been on display at the annual Turkey pardon in 2014 when he asked them if they wanted to pet the turkeys and Malia simply said “no.”

He knows how to flaunt dad jeans

Obama Appoints Transgender Attorney Shannon Minter To White House Commission

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Monday appointed transgender attorney Shannon Price Minter to the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships.

Minter, who is the legal director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, has been lead counsel in a number of legal wins for the LGBT community. He gained national attention in 2001 when he represented the lesbian partner of Diane Whipple in a wrongful death case stemming from a dog mauling. That case resulted in a landmark decision in California that extended tort claims to same-sex domestic partners.

Minter was also the lead attorney arguing before the California Supreme Court to overturn Proposition 8, a state ballot measure that banned same-sex marriage in the state. The U.S. Supreme Court in 2013 let a lower court decision go into effect that struck down the ban.

“I am confident that these experienced and hardworking individuals will help us tackle the important challenges facing America, and I am grateful for their service,” Obama said in a statement, of Minter and a handful of other new nominees. “I look forward to working with them.”

The Commission on White House Fellowships interviews and then recommends people to the president for appointment as White House Fellows, who typically spend a year as full-time, paid assistants to senior White House staff.

Minter is one of a number of transgender appointees in the Obama administration. Others include Amanda Simpson and Shawn Skelly at the Defense Department and Jay Davis at the Environmental Protection Agency.

“I am deeply honored to serve on the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships, which provides a unique opportunity for new leaders to gain a firsthand experience of our nation’s government,” Minter said in a statement. “As a transgender man, I am especially grateful to President Obama for his commitment to building a government that reflects the full diversity of our country and for supporting equal opportunity for all people.”

The story has been updated with a statement from Shannon Price Minter.

An Open Letter to President Obama: Kelly Rutherford’s Custody Case

2015-05-04-1430763598-9981357-hh.jpg

Dear President Obama,

I know that you are a busy man, but by now I’m sure you’ve heard about Kelly Rutherford’s plight to bring her children home to the United States of America? As you are probably aware, Kelly Rutherford and Daniel Giersch’s children (two American-born citizens) were ripped from the arms of their primary parent by Judge Teresa A. Beaudet in an unprecedented move designed to cater to Daniel’s inability to enter the United States of America.

You see, Mr. President, Daniel’s visa was revoked due to suspicions and swirling allegations that he is an international drugs and weapons dealer. I ask you, if the United States has deemed this individual suspicious enough to ban him from our country, how are we allowing these two young children to be removed from their country and be shipped off to a foreign land where neither parent actually has citizenship? Plot twist: Daniel is a German citizen and Kelly is an American citizen yet the children are residing in France.

In an interview with People Magazine, Kelly was asked about the moment that she heard Judge Teresa Beaudet’s decision, Kelly replied,

I remember when she made the ruling, I just thought, ‘There’s something wrong here. Not because of their father and I or anything — I’ve always wanted my kids to have a relationship with him, and I’ve really only encouraged that all along.

When I went into court, I never asked for money, and I never asked for full custody. I just wanted what was right for them and their well-being moving forward.

In a statement released by Kelly’s attorney, Wendy Murphy, she explained the driving force behind this new petition which will be landing on your desk very soon,

This is a political problem for President Obama and a constitutional problem for the courts. The president recently issued an executive order declaring that children born in this country to illegal immigrant parents must be allowed to remain in this country.

Mr. Obama specifically talked about the importance of mothers and children being allowed to stay together in America. How could Kelly and her children not be entitled to at least the same legal protections?

If Kelly’s children are not rescued from involuntary expatriation to France, it would mean that President Obama believes non-citizens are entitled to greater rights than citizens in this country.”

Labeled by legal consultant, Dan Abrams as “The worst custody decision in United States history,” this is a your opportunity to correct a heart-breaking situation which continues to baffle and terrify American’s across the country. I encourage you to bring Hermes and Helena back to their home in the United States of America.

Sincerely,

Tina Swithin — Family Court Advocate

President Barack Obama, David Letterman Talk About Their Retirement Plans

NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama is envisioning a future of playing dominoes with retiree David Letterman.

Obama joked about their quieter futures during his eighth “Late Show” appearance Monday, saying Americans have grown up with the 33-year veteran comedian. “After a tough day at the office or coming home from work, knowing that you’ve been there to give us a little bit of joy and a little bit of laughter, it has meant so much,” Obama said. “You’re part of all of us. You’ve given us a great gift and we love you.”

Letterman is filling his CBS show with prominent guests in the lead-up to his final show May 20.

In honor of Obama’s appearance, Letterman listed “Top 10 Questions Dumb Guys Ask the President,” which included “Will you be a guest on one of my last shows?” and “Will you show us your birth certificate?” Number 1, in honor of the recent unauthorized landing on the Capitol lawn: “When will you return my gyrocopter?”

Letterman returned Obama’s praise by complimenting his “very funny” performance at the White House Correspondents Dinner last month. “I’m a pretty funny guy,” Obama responded.

“You have guys writing that stuff?” Letterman asked, to which Obama threw up his hands and gave a sidelong look at the audience like he couldn’t believe Letterman would ask. “No,” Obama deadpanned. “I came up with it all myself.”

The two men also discussed the serious topic of the Baltimore riots, with the president discussing how too many minority communities don’t have a trusting relationship with police.

Letterman asked if racism is a factor. Obama said it was a residual one after a history of slavery, Jim Crow laws and discrimination, while adding society has made great strides. “I’m a testament to that,” he said to applause from the studio audience.

Letterman said Obama told him during a commercial break that he plans to take a month off after leaving office. The president said he and the first lady hope to get involved in causes they care about “in a different capacity,” including climate change, as well as helping support disadvantaged youth and military families.

But most of all Obama indicated that, like Letterman, he is looking forward to life out of the spotlight. “It does feel good not to have to be on the stump,” Obama said of the 2016 campaign.

“I was thinking you and me could play some dominoes together,” Obama said. “We could go to the local Starbucks and swap stories.”

First Lady Michelle Obama Looks to May Flowers for Inspiration

Michelle Obama Thakoon dress

Earlier this week, Amal Clooney sported a darkly floral look for evening, one that was accented by a graphic red trimming. And now earlier today in New York City, First Lady Michelle Obama showed the lighter side of the spring runways motif with a painterly touch.

Seen speaking at the Whitney Museum of American Art in downtown Manhattan, the First Lady’s red, white, and blue tulip-print Thakoon dress made for a subtle patriotic statement. The three-quarter-length sleeves feel fresh and modern, while a pleated skirt hem adds a feminine finish.

Obama Uses White House Correspondents’ Dinner Speech To Take A Jab At Dick Cheney

President Barack Obama used his speech at the 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner to jab back at former Vice President Dick Cheney, who recently called Obama “the worst president.”

“A few weeks ago Dick Cheney said he thinks I’m the worst president of his lifetime, which is interesting, because I think Dick Cheney is the worst president of my lifetime,” Obama said.

Obama And Joe Biden Are So Close They Can’t Get Served In Indiana

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are apparently so close, Obama says they have trouble getting served in some places in Indiana.

“I tease Joe sometimes, but he has been at my side for seven years, I love that man,” Obama said during the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday. “He’s not just a great vice president, he is a great friend.

“We’ve gotten so close that in some places in Indiana, they won’t serve us pizza anymore,” Obama joked.

Obama was referring to the controversial Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which would have permitted businesses to cite their religious beliefs as grounds to deny service to LGBT individuals. During the controversy, one pizzeria drew attention for saying that it would refuse to cater a gay wedding.

The bill was eventually amended by the Indiana legislature to clarify that it did not sanction discrimination.

Obama also made fun of former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn.), who said recently that he would not attend a gay wedding. Obama joked that gay couples probably wouldn’t want to invite Santorum anyway.

“That’s not going to be a problem,” Obama said.

Obama Can’t Believe That Donald Trump Is Still Attending The White House Correspondents’ Dinner

President Barack Obama is surprised that Donald Trump is still sticking around the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

“Donald Trump is here…still,” Obama joked during his remarks at the annual dinner in Washington on Saturday.

Obama skewered Trump at the dinner in 2011 after Trump publicly insisted that the president was not born in the United States. Obama eventually released his full birth certificate.

Trump says that he is considering a run for president in 2016.

Obama Makes A Birther Joke At The 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner

President Barack Obama made yet another birther joke while giving remarks at the 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday in Washington.

Obama brought up a recent report that said former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) accidentally identified as a Hispanic on a 2009 voter registration form.

“Turns out Jeb Bush identified himself as Hispanic back in 2009,” Obama said. “But you know what, I understand, it’s an innocent mistake. It reminds me of when I identified myself as American back in 1961.”

Obama also drew attention to real estate mogul and noted birther Donald Trump, who attended the dinner this year

“Donald Trump is here… still,” Obama said.

WHCD host Cecily Strong also made a joke about Obama’s birthplace.

“‘Kumbaya’ is the village in Africa where the president was born,” Strong said.

Cecily Strong Jabs Obama On Charlie Hebdo, Mom Jeans At White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Comedian Cecily Strong didn’t hold back in criticizing President Barack Obama on a range of policy and personal issues during remarks at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday.

At one point, Strong showed a fake photo of herself with former Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) in Paris, telling Obama, “You should go there sometime.”

“I hear the weather’s great in January,” she added, making it even more clear she was jabbing the president for his absence at the national unity rally after the Charlie Hebdo shootings there earlier this year.

Delving into another issue of foreign policy, Strong brought up the Islamic State, also known as ISIS.

“Even ‘SNL’ got criticized for making fun of ISIS,” the “Saturday Night Live” star said. “If anyone is guilty of taking ISIS too lightly, it’s um, you know,” she added, nodding toward the president.

She swayed into domestic policy, too, offering appreciation to Obama for the dinner.

“I know this must have cost a ton of food stamps, so thank you,” Strong told the president.

And the Chicago native reminisced about what their childhoods could have been like together if they had been friends growing up in the Windy City, playing basketball together while Obama wore her mother’s jeans.

Strong also brought up the Secret Service and the arguments of Obama “birthers.”

Obama Jokes That There Could Be Another ‘Pot Smoking Socialist’ In The White House

President Barack Obama joked on Saturday that one potential 2016 candidate for president could continue his legacy in the White House at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday.

“Bernie Sanders might run. I like Bernie. Bernie’s an interesting guy. Apparently some folks want to see a pot-smoking socialist in the White House,” Obama said, referring to the Vermont senator’s interest in a campaign for the White House in 2016. “We could get a third Obama term after all. It could happen.”

Obama Rips CNN, Speaks On Detained Washington Post Journalist Jason Rezaian

President Barack Obama ruthlessly joked about CNN during his speech at the 2015 White House Correspondents’ dinner on Saturday in Washington, D.C.

Commending WHCD host Cecily Strong, Obama said it was notable that Strong impersonates CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

“Usually the only people impersonating journalists on CNN are journalists at CNN,” Obama said.

On a more serious note, Obama spoke about Jason Rezaian, The Washington Post Tehran bureau chief who’s been imprisoned in Iran since July 2014. Obama said “we will not rest” until Rezaian is released from prison and returned to the U.S.

Obama also mentioned James Foley and Steven Sotloff, two journalists who were executed by the Islamic State this year.

Rezaian’s brother Ali attended Saturday’s dinner as a guest of The Washington Post.

Ted Nugent Says ‘Enemy’ Obama Is Causing Veteran Suicides

Ted Nugent is blaming the “enemy” for veteran suicides: President Barack Obama.

“Here’s your job, Republican Party,” Nugent said over the weekend in comments posted online by Right Wing Watch. “Twenty to 25 of those guys kill themselves every day, and they haven’t told you why and they haven’t told anybody else why but they told me why: because the commander-in-chief is the enemy.”

Nugent was speaking at the Republican Party of Maricopa County, Arizona’s Lincoln Day Dinner, where he had been introduced by controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio, the website reported.

His remarks come as a new report finds that increasing rates of veteran suicides are not being caused by deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Nugent made similar comments nearly two years ago to conservative radio host Alex Jones.

At the time, Nugent said veterans were taking their own lives “because they are in absolute frustration and heartbreak that their boss, their commander-in-chief, violates the Constitution that he has made an oath to, while their hero warrior blood brothers are being blown to smithereens and blown up while executing their oath to the same Constitution that the president, the vice president and the attorney general violate.”

The classic rocker has a history of controversial statements, with the president as a frequent target of his ire. Last year, he apologized after calling Obama “a subhuman mongrel.” Nugent has also called Obama “an evil, dangerous man who hates America” and said in 2012 that he would “either be dead or in jail” in a year if the president was reelected.

Fictional TV Presidents Are More Popular Than President Barack Obama, Poll Finds

WASHINGTON, March 23 (Reuters) – Whether it’s the earnest Josiah Bartlet from “The West Wing” or the manipulative Frank Underwood in “House of Cards,” Americans prefer television presidents to their real-life POTUS, President Barack “No Drama” Obama.

A Reuters-Ipsos poll taken this month found 54 percent of Americans held an unfavorable opinion of Obama, known for his cool and cautious presidential style, while 46 percent were favorable.

In contrast, asked to imagine that David Palmer of “24” was president, 89 percent of those who had seen the real-time Fox counterterrorism drama said they held a favorable rating of the decisive president played by Dennis Haysbert.

Martin Sheen’s Jed Bartlet of “The West Wing” – beloved by Democrats, including many who work in Obama’s White House – was rated favorably by 82 percent of its NBC viewers.

In the dark universe of “Battlestar Galactica” on SyFy, president Laura Roslin, played by Mary McDonnell, drew a 78 percent favorable rating among fans of her quest to find earth and escape the Cylons, a race of humanoid killer robots.

With Americans sharply divided along partisan lines, it is unlikely that any real-life president could achieve sky-high favorability ratings, said Tevi Troy, a presidential historian and author of “What Jefferson Read, Ike Watched, and Obama Tweeted,” a study of popular culture in the White House.

“Pretty much half the country is going to be predisposed against you just because that’s the way we line up with Republicans and Democrats,” Troy said.

Unlike fictional presidents, with their camera-ready looks and perfect timing, real-life presidents sometimes fumble.

Republican Ronald Reagan, who was an actor before turning to politics and eventually becoming president, was an exception, Troy said.

“His media people would say how great it was that he always hit his marks,” said Troy, who was a top domestic policy adviser in Republican George W. Bush’s administration.

Morally challenged fictional presidents also topped Obama’s favorability ratings in the Reuters-Ipsos poll.

Of those who watch ABC’s steamy drama “Scandal,” 60 percent had a favorable view of Fitzgerald “Fitz” Grant, the philandering, scotch-swilling president played by Tony Goldwyn.

Frank Underwood also beat Obama.

In “House of Cards,” Underwood, played by Kevin Spacey, kills a passed-out congressman by leaving him in a running car in a garage, and pushes a journalist into the path of a subway train.

Imagining Spacey’s scheming character as president, 57 percent of respondents who have seen the Netflix political thriller said they held a favorable opinion of him.

Even Obama likes Underwood. “This guy’s getting a lot of stuff done,” Obama quipped during a December 2013 White House photo-op with Reed Hastings, Netflix’s chief executive.

“I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient,” Obama said.

There was one result from the online poll, conducted from March 5 to 19, that could give some solace to Obama: He is more popular with Americans than Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Seventy-six percent of Americans had an unfavorable view of Putin, according to the poll, while 24 percent were favorable.

Obama Says The GOP Has Just Shown How You Diminish Your Office

President Barack Obama drew laughs when he joked about his approval ratings, legal marijuana and executive actions at the annual Gridiron Club dinner in Washington on Saturday.

But when it came to the letter that 47 Republican senators recently sent to Iranian leaders warning that a nuclear deal could be undone by a future administration, Obama dropped the comedic routine.

“You don’t diminish your office by taking a selfie. You do it by sending a poorly written letter to Iran. Really. That wasn’t a joke,” he said, according to a pool report of the event.

Obama was referring to his use of a selfie stick during a recent appearance in a video for BuzzFeed to promote the Affordable Care Act. Conservatives claim that Obama has diminished the presidency by appearing in the BuzzFeed video, being interviewed by YouTube stars and going on late-night talk shows.

Obama has also said that he was “embarrassed” for the Republicans who sent the letter to Iran. Vice President Joe Biden has said that the letter was “beneath the dignity” of the United States Senate.

Republicans have defended the letter, saying that they had to speak out because Obama didn’t consult them.

Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday that he would not apologize to Iran for the GOP’s actions. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who orchestrated sending the letter, said that he had “no regrets.”

Rodner Figueroa Pens Apology Letter To Michelle Obama, Accuses Univision Of Humiliating Him

Less than 24 hours after being fired over his “Planet of the Apes” remark toward Michelle Obama, former Univision host Rodner Figueroa has penned an open letter apologizing to the first lady and firing back at Univision for how they handled the situation.

In the lengthy letter, Figueroa addresses Obama directly and offers a formal apology while explaining that the comment was taken out of context. The former “Sal Y Pimienta” host also said his dismissal was a direct result of a complaint by the first lady’s office to the network and that Univision publicly humiliated him.

“I want to clarify that I’m not racist and in no way was my comment directed at you, but rather the work of the [make up] artist, which left much to be desired,” the letter says.

Rodner said in the letter that he comes from a biracial family, was among the first openly gay television personalities on Hispanic television and voted twice for President Barack Obama.

The apology comes after a segment by the fashionista on Univision’s entertainment show “El Gordo Y La Flaca,” in which Figueroa was analyzing images of make-up artist Paolo Ballestero transforming himself into different female celebrities, including the first lady.

While reviewing the image of Ballestero as Obama with a side-by-side image of the first lady herself, the host said: “Mind you, you know that Michelle Obama looks like she’s part of the cast of “Planet of the Apes,” the film.”

Barack Obama Banters With Jimmy Kimmel About Life In The White House, Ferguson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — President Barack Obama read “Mean Tweets” on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night, but he was unfazed.

After enduring the routine — in which celebrities read hostile Twitter comments about themselves — Obama told Kimmel, “You should see what the Senate says about me.” The president also joked about the perks and restrictions he faces, revealing that he’s not allowed to use cellphones that have recorders in them. (Hence his ever-present BlackBerry.) He also noted that he can visit the dentist in the White House basement but doesn’t text and can’t drive.

Kimmel asked if that was because you have to have a birth certificate to get a driver’s license.

Obama — whom Kimmel introduced as the “first Kenyan-born Muslim Socialist ever elected president” — deadpanned that Kenyans “drive on the other side” of the road.

With Sean Penn waiting in the wings, Obama said he was quite familiar with Penn’s 1982 coming-of-age comedy “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.”

“I lived it,” Obama said. “I didn’t just see it.”

Kimmel spared the president from questions about the latest controversy involving the Secret Service — although Kimmel’s security guard and sidekick, Guillermo Rodriguez, dressed in a full Secret Service getup of dark suit and sunglasses. The glasses, Kimmel joked, were simply hiding a hangover: “Secret cerveza.”

Obama’s appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” fulfilled a commitment the White House made after he had to postpone an appearance last year.

During a more subdued segment, Obama reflected on Wednesday night’s shooting of two police officers in racially tense Ferguson, Missouri, just days after he had delivered a speech on racial healing in Selma, Alabama.

“What had been happening in Ferguson was oppressive and objectionable and was worthy of protest, but there was no excuse for criminal acts,” he said.

“Whoever fired those shots should not detract from the issue — they are criminals, they need to be arrested. And then what we need to do is make sure that like-minded, good-spirited people on both sides — law enforcement, who have a terrifically tough job, and people who understandably don’t want to be stopped and harassed just because of their race — that they are able to work together to come up with some good answers.”

After the “Kimmel” taping, Obama attended a Democratic National Committee fundraiser at the Santa Monica home of Chris Silbermann, president of ICM Partners, one of the top talent agencies in Hollywood. The event was closed to the press, but a Democratic official said the event attracted about 25 people who each paid up to $ 33,400.

On Friday, Obama is flying to Phoenix to hold a roundtable event on veterans’ health care.

President Obama Reading Mean Tweets Is Your American Dream Come True

Hail to the tweets.

President Barack Obama kicked off his appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday by reading his very own mean tweets.

Kimmel’s announcement this week that the president would be stopping by the show was obviously huge news for the late night host, but the commander-in-chief’s decision to participate in this popular sketch took things to a whole new level. During the segment, Obama was confronted with all kinds of crazy criticisms, and the stakes seemed even higher than the waistband on his jeans.

It’s fitting that Obama now joins Katy Perry as a “Mean Tweets” alum because this appearance was straight up fireworks.

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.

North Korea Blames U.S. For Shutting Down Its Internet, Says Obama Was Behind ‘The Interview’ Release

HYUNG-JIN KIM, Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea called President Barack Obama “a monkey” and blamed the U.S. on Saturday for shutting down its Internet amid the hacking row over the comedy “The Interview.”

North Korea has denied involvement in a crippling cyberattack on Sony Pictures but has expressed fury over the comedy depicting an assassination of its leader Kim Jong Un. After Sony Pictures initially called off the release in a decision criticized by Obama, the movie has opened this week.

On Saturday, the North’s powerful National Defense Commission, the country’s top governing body led by Kim, said that Obama was behind the release of “The Interview.” It described the movie as illegal, dishonest and reactionary.

“Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest,” an unidentified spokesman at the commission’s Policy Department said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.

He also accused Washington for intermittent outages of North Korea websites this week, after the U.S. had promised to respond to the Sony hack.

There was no immediate reaction from the White House on Saturday.

According to the North Korea commission’s spokesman, “the U.S., a big country, started disturbing the Internet operation of major media of the DPRK, not knowing shame like children playing a tag.”

The commission said the movie was the results of a hostile U.S. policy toward North Korea, and threatened the U.S. with unspecified consequences.

North Korea and the U.S. remain technically in a state of war because the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty. The rivals also are locked in an international standoff over the North’s nuclear and missile programs and its alleged human rights abuses. The U.S. stations about 28,500 troops in South Korea as deterrence against North Korean aggression.
