President Trump’s 2017 Report Card (first draft)

As we approach the holiday season there will be much debate on how President Trump has performed for his first calendar year. As a populist president, I think the best way to judge his performance is by focusing on the issues voters say are their top priorities. Pew Research polled voters to determine their political priorities for 2017. Let’s see how President Trump is doing so far on the top ten priorities according to the public.

Terrorism (76% rated top priority)

ISIS is on the run, thanks in part to President Trump’s loosening of the rules of military engagement, as well as pivoting from a Whack-a-Mole strategy to a total annihilation strategy with no withdrawal date. Both moves are good persuasion. And while President Trump’s “extreme vetting” is unpopular with many citizens, it has probably reduced risk to the homeland. And General Mattis is widely considered to be a strong hire.

     Grade: A

Economy (73% rated top priority)

I’ll give President Obama 75% credit for the strong economy. But I think consumer confidence and the stock market tell us there is optimism about the current administration. That confidence is buoyed by Trump’s reduction in regulations via executive orders, his tough talk on trade, and his persuasion toward a higher GDP that is already becoming self-fulfilling. If people believe the economy will be better next year than this year, they invest this year, thus making next year better. We might see something good come out of tax reform, but I don’t think it will matter as much as people assume.

     Grade: A

Education (69% rated top priority)

I’m not aware of any federal changes in this area that would be big enough to make a difference. But it is also unclear how much the federal government can do on an issue that is managed by the states. Unfortunately for the Trump administration, the mental anchor in our minds for education is Bernie Sanders’ idea of free college. If that’s the standard, the Trump administration is not even in the game.

     Grade: C

Jobs (68% rated top priority)

Unemployment is low. Illegal immigration is down by half. Corporations are bringing manufacturing jobs back to America, at least in part because of Trump’s direct persuasion on this point. A cut in business tax rates could improve things further.

     Grade: A

Health care costs (66% rated top priority)

President Trump offered to sign any health care bill the Republican congress could pass. They tried twice and failed twice. The public sees this as more of a problem with Congress than the presidency, and the public is right. But it is also true that the President did not fully engage his persuasion game on this topic, allowing Republicans to fail miserably. Is that bad? It depends.

I have been saying for months that the only way to get a good health care bill is by letting the Republican Congress fail a few times so they become flexible (more bipartisan) later. President Trump’s potential influence over health care will grow over time as both sides look at a failing Obamacare system and don’t want to explain their failure to voters in 2018. I’m predicting we will have health care legislation before summer, but the only way to get there is by letting both the current system and Congress continue to fail. That is happening.

President Trump did sign an executive order allowing groups to organize to purchase health care insurance. That could help, but we see nothing useful from it yet.

     Grade: Incomplete (with a progress grade of D- so far)

Social Security (60% rated top priority)

Social Security is a Congressional budget issue. But President Trump promises to keep it strong. Not much happening on this topic. But a strong economy is a good foundation for having a solid safety net, and we have that going for us.

     Grade: B

Medicare (59% rated top priority)

Medicare is a Congressional budget issue. I’ve seen nothing significant from President Trump on this topic. But again, a strong economy helps here too.

     Grade: B

Poor and needy (56% rated top priority)

A growing economy is the most effective way to help the poor and needy in the long run, and things are going well on that front. But expect Republican budgets to look “mean” to this demographic.

     Grade: C

Race relations (56% rated top priority)

President Trump is an “America First” president, and that includes treating all legal citizens the same under the law. But the optics of that approach create the impression that the administration is racist for ignoring identity politics and playing hardball with illegal immigrants. In my opinion, the Trump administration has mostly fumbled this issue from the start of the campaign until now. The anti-Trump media is probably at least 60% of the problem in terms of how people feel about this topic, but you can’t blame them for hitting lots of targets in a target-rich environment.

     Grade: F

Reducing Crime (56% rated top priority)

I haven’t noticed any improvement in this area that would be related to the federal government except for a decrease in immigration and an improvement in the economy (which I assume reduces crime, but maybe not).

     Grade: C

You might be wondering about climate change. That issue, to my surprise, is not in the top ten. Likewise, judicial nominations and several other topics I expected to be important are not in the top ten. But those omissions from the top ten probably don’t matter for this exercise because partisans would disagree on what success looks like in most of those areas. Is it a success to nominate qualified conservatives to the courts? It depends on your political affiliations. Is it a success to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord? Again, it depends on your political perspective. And that might account for why the harder-to-score issues rank outside the top ten priorities. We all know what a good economy looks like, but we would disagree on, for example, the optimal size for the military.

I submit my scorecard here as a work in progress, with probable revisions coming based on your critiques.


You might want to read the best book ever written because it also comes in an audio book.

Low Public Approval of President Trump Yet Unusually High Consumer Confidence. Hmmm…

How did we get to a place where The President of the United States has historically low approval at the same time we have recent highs for consumer confidence?

Almost everything President Trump does has an impact on the economy, and on consumers. That includes national security, immigration, taxes, health care, budgets, treaties, government regulations, and international relations. If the public is optimistic about the economy, that is normally the same as having confidence in the president. At least on the big-ticket items.

The types of presidential actions that have lower impact on the economy include court appointments, opinions on confederate statues, NFL kneeling, transgenders in the military, birth control funding, unpresidential tweets, poorly-executed disavowals, hyperbole that fails the fact-checking, seemingly unnecessary political attacks, and all manner of obnoxious presidential behavior. The majority of citizens disapprove of President Trump on at least some of those topics.

I don’t think we’ve ever seen something like this before. A majority of citizens disapprove of President Trump while simultaneously having confidence he’ll get most of the big stuff right and the economy will reflect it.

During the 2016 campaign, my haters mocked me mercilessly on Twitter for predicting that a candidate with insanely low approval ratings could ever get elected president of the United States. I said it wouldn’t be the problem people thought it would be. And it wasn’t. Part of the reason is that Hillary Clinton also had low ratings. But I also suspected there were so-called shy Trump supporters who held private opinions that were different from what the pollsters could suss out.

Now we see a similar situation shaping up. I don’t know whether or not President Trump will seek a second term. But if he ran for reelection today, I expect he would win by a larger margin than the first time, no matter who ran against him. To put it another way, approval ratings aren’t as predictive as you would expect. But consumer confidence is probably close to 100% predictive. Ask Bill Clinton. He’ll tell you It’s the economy, stupid.

Prior to President Trump’s inauguration day I predicted we’d see this story arc play out in the media:

Spring 2017: “Trump is Hitler!”

Summer 2017: “Okay, Trump isn’t Hitler. But he’s incompetent!”

End of year 2017: “Crap. He’s effective. But we don’t like it.”

Consumer confidence is peaking while the president’s approval rating is in the cellar. That means people expect him to be effective on the big stuff. But they don’t like him because of the other stuff.

Right on schedule.

Current/Elliott Hires Natalie Ratabesi as Senior Vice President of Design

Natalie Ratabesi has been tapped as senior vice president of design at Current/Elliott, a division of The Collected Group, whose portfolio includes Joie and Equipment, WWD has learned.
Ratabesi will work closely with The Collected Group’s chief brand officer, Sarah Rutson, to oversee design direction of the denim lifestyle brand’s women’s wear and men’s wear collections, beginning with the fall 2018 season. In addition to her new role, Ratabesi will continue to design and operate her own line, TRE by Natalie Ratabesi, a designer collection that will be shipped to stores such as Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Net-a-porter, Forward and Harvey Nichols this month.
Ratabesi takes over the women’s design responsibilities from Michele Manz, who was vice president of design for Current/Elliott women’s. The men’s wear designer remains Kirk Von Heifner.
Rutson, former vice president of global buying at Net-a-porter.com, joined The Collected Group in July and was charged with identifying potential acquisitions to help build the group’s portfolio beyond the contemporary labels currently in its portfolio.

Mistah F.A.B “Dear Mr. President,” Young Dro “Hell Is You Doing” & More | Daily Visuals 10.16.17

If Donald Trump has done any good with his chaotic presidency it’s that he’s unwittingly united people from all walks of life to counter his assault on freedom.

Keeping with the well earned Trump slander, Young Dro pictures what the downfall of Donald Trump would look like after impeachment in his clip to “Hell Is You Doing.” Needless to say hilarity ensues.

I Explain the Persuasion Techniques President Trump is using on The Wall and DACA

You might enjoy my Periscope playback from this morning in which I describe the several persuasion techniques President Trump is using on the topic of The Wall and DACA.

Here’s the quick summary.

Visual Persuasion: President Trump describes border security (a concept) with the word “wall” because you can visualize it. Our visual sense is our most persuasive path for influence. It would be weak persuasion to talk about border security as a concept without a visual.

Simplicity: Border security is a big topic, and the method you use to secure it will depend on the terrain and other factors. If President Trump mentioned all of that complexity each time he talked about border security it would be a big yawn. Simple messages such as “build a wall” always beat complicated (but accurate) conceptual arguments.

Strategic Ambiguity: In hypnosis class we learned to omit any details the subject might find objectionable. Following good form, President Trump doesn’t get too specific about the type of wall he wants. He lets us see the wall that makes the most sense to us.

We see the same strategic ambiguity after his famous dinner “agreement” with Pelosi and Schumer. The Democratic leaders got to announce “no wall” while the President says “yes wall.” The reality is that both sides agree on spending for border improvements, some of which will undoubtedly be wall-ish sometime in the next few years. We citizens get to pick which version of reality we like best: wall or no wall. The ambiguity supports both views. And it is intentional.

Big First Demand: A good negotiator starts with an aggressive first demand so there is plenty of room to negotiate toward the middle. President Trump started his campaign promising to deport every undocumented immigrant. That first demand was so extreme that he has plenty of room to negotiate toward a reasonable center, such as allowing DACA folks to stay.

Likewise, the “Wall” idea is seen by many Trump critics and supporters alike to mean a solid wall for the entire border with Mexico. This was never a practical idea, and candidate Trump said so directly at least once, but he wisely didn’t emphasize the full range of solutions for the border. Now it will seem totally reasonable to build a solid wall wherever border security is most problematic, so long as it is not extended to the entire border.

Thinking Past the Sale: In this case, the “sale” is President Trump’s desire to tighten border security. Now both sides assume the border will be tightened and they are only debating the budget and the details. This is classic persuasion. The President never allowed the country to spend time debating whether or not we wanted better border control. Instead, he made us focus on how to do it. He made the sale before the country thought it had anything to buy.

Trading Imaginary Assets for Real Ones: If we believe initial reports from Pelosi, Schumer, and Trump, there will be some sort of deal for greater border security in exchange for allowing DACA folks to stay in the country. But realistically, the DACA folks couldn’t have been rounded up and deported without a civil war. So President Trump traded an imaginary asset (the idea of deporting the DACA folks) for something potentially real in terms of greater border security funding.

Pacing and Leading: Pacing refers to matching your subject in some way, either physically, verbally, or in terms of philosophy. Candidate Trump paced (matched) his base on immigration until he got elected. Now the base trusts that he is philosophically aligned with them. So if he finds he can’t do all the things they demand, they are likely to let him lead to whatever is practical and doable simply because they trust him on the topic. People don’t expect a politician to be magic, or to do the impossible. But they do want politicians to “get” them and to care about them and to fight for what they want. President Trump paced his supporters by understanding their needs and fighting for them. That group is likely to trust him when he says some form of “This is the best we can do for now.”

High Ground Maneuver: The high ground maneuver involves taking an argument out of the weeds and up to a level where everyone agrees. In this case, the weeds include a discussion of how best to handle DACA folks. President Trump tweeted that some are military veterans. The military is the high ground in the U.S., and any reference to them is likely to be a high ground play. In other words, President Trump is committing to keeping the DACA folks in this country. He just doesn’t want to say it until he gets his budget for border security.

Likewise, at some point soon President Trump will pivot from “the wall everywhere” to “effective border control.” Effective border control, and the job improvement for Americans that might come with it, are the high ground. The details of how to do it are the weeds.

Cheeto-In-Chief President Trump Ends DACA For Six Months

DACA, the program created by former President Barack Obama to aid undocumented workers who came to the country as children, will be ended by President Donald Trump. The move will cause a six-month delay in the protections provided in the program, moving the issue to Congress to handle instead of the current administration.

Politico writes:

Trump has wrestled for months with whether to do away with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, known as DACA. But conversations with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who argued that Congress — rather than the executive branch — is responsible for writing immigration law, helped persuade the president to terminate the program and kick the issue to Congress, the two sources said.

In a nod to reservations held by many lawmakers, the White House plans to delay the enforcement of the president’s decision for six months, giving Congress a window to act, according to one White House official. But a senior White House aide said that chief of staff John Kelly, who has been running the West Wing policy process on the issue, “thinks Congress should’ve gotten its act together a lot longer ago.”

Given President Trump’s seemingly personal aim to do away with a number of Obama-era programs and laws, the shift in moving DACA away from the hands of the top office of the land and into the halls of lawmakers doesn’t necessarily spell an end to the program but immigration continues to be a hot button issue in Congress.

Omarosa Manigault-Newman Says President Trump’s HBCU Conference Still On

Omarosa Manigault-Newman has one of the most difficult jobs in the Trump administration as the director of communications for the White House’s Office of Public Liaison. The former reality star recently stated that a much-ballyhooed HBCU conference spearheaded by the president is going forward as planned, although critics of the upcoming event have been vocal in shouting it down.

Inside Higher Ed writes:

The White House will go ahead with the planned schedule for its annual HBCU conference next month, despite calls over the last week to postpone the event and warnings that some leaders of historically black colleges would no longer attend.

Those calls appeared to reflect ongoing frustrations with the administration’s approach to historically black colleges as well as concerns that the White House response to white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Va., would distract from the conference.

Representative Alma Adams, a North Carolina Democrat and the chair of the HBCU Caucus, and Johnny Taylor, the president and CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, called in separate letters for the event to be postponed. Adams cited a lack of progress on issues of importance to HBCUs. Taylor raised concerns that “recent national events” could overshadow the conference, making it ultimately counterproductive. A number of HBCU leaders who had registered for the conference have also made it clear they will no longer attend, Taylor wrote in a letter to Omarosa Manigault-Newman, an assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.

The conference is still slated for September 17-19, as reported by McClatchy’s Washington bureau.

President Donald Trump Finally Calls Out Charlottesville White Nationalists By Name

In the wake of the hateful protest in Charlottesville that turned bloody and left one woman dead, President Trump has finally placed blame by name.

For a politician who is so quick to specifically address all who oppose him, the POTUS was noticeably ambiguous when he commented on the violence. ‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides.”

After much scrutiny from the left, right and everyone with a drop of common sense, Trump took a firmer position saying “Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the K.K.K., neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

For Merck’s chief executive, Kenneth C. Frazier, it was too little too late. The noted pharmaceutical CEO resigned from the president’s American Manufacturing Council on Monday citing that the death of 32-year old Heather Heyer was not committed by “many sides“.

“America’s leaders must honor our fundamental views by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal,” he said via a tweet posted from Merck’s official Twitter Account.

Naturally, the president took to Twitter to address Frazier withdrawing from the committee stating “Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President’s Manufacturing Council, he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!”.

This is not the first time Donald’s stance or lack thereof has left his appointed business leaders to flee. So far Elon Musk of Tesla, Bob Iger of Disney and Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs have all exited presidential councils.

Also, we are curious to know why no one has mentioned that Trump Winery, the largest vineyard in Virginia, is also located in Charlottesville?

Reebok President Lobbies for Academy Award for Best Fitness Trainer

REEBOK’S ACADEMY EFFORT: With “Wonder Woman’s” Gal Gadot, “Baby Driver’s” Ansel Elgort and “Atomic Blonde’s” Charlize Theron earning strong reviews for their chiseled physiques this summer, it’s not surprising that Reebok is appealing to the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences to create an Oscar for best fitness trainer.
In an open letter to academy president John Bailey posted Wednesday afternoon, Reebok president Matt O’Toole noted that the best scenes and storylines often require “amazing physical transformations” thanks to a small field of expert trainers.
While uber-fit overhauls aren’t exactly new (as Sylvester Stallone, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jennifer Lawrence can attest) the C-suite lobbying is an unprecedented tactic. O’Toole notes that for the last 36 years the Academy has handed out Best Makeup and Hairstyling awards. And he made reference to the fact that sound mixers have been recognized by the Academy since 1930. “Why not also reward the people who keep our role models in peak condition?” he wrote.
Reebok wasted no time in reaching out to Bailey, a cinematographer in his own right, who was voted in to head up the academy Tuesday night. But reached Wednesday afternoon, a spokesman for the organization said he was unfamiliar with the

Marc Bouwer’s President and Influencer Paul Margolin Discusses Fleeting Online Fame

IN AN INSTANT: While many know Paul Margolin as the president of Marc Bouwer Inc., even more know him from Instagram. That was until Wednesday when his account was hacked — and gone with it, 46,000 followers.
That was unwelcome news for Margolin, who has worked as a social influencer with such brands as The Underwear Expert, Morphine Lips and the Chappy dating app, among others. When not working in Bouwer’s Fulton Street studio and office, he has been fielding requests from Musefind and WeTrend. More often than not, Margolin posted images with his fiancé Sergio Zapata. The 360-degree drone-shot video of Zapata proposing to Margolin near Bethesda Fountain in Central Park helped to make them a popular InstaCouple.
“My Instagram stories were getting 4,000 views on a story. There is a value to all of it,” Margolin said. “Plus, I just disappeared to everybody. I only followed 350 and I was followed by 46,000.”
In his 20s Margolin ditched a short-lived modeling career to help Bouwer start his company from the designer’s Greenwich Village apartment. A regular at one of Equinox’s downtown club, Margolin often posted photos of his shirtless self. The favorable responses to his fitness-related posts made him consider getting

Rihanna Met With France President Emmanuel Macron On Education

Rihanna has been involved in global effort to advance education and has been using the power of her celebrity to address the need. After making appeals to a series of world leaders as the ambassador for The Global Partnership for Education, the Barbadian superstar sat down with France’s president, Emmanuel Macron earlier today (July 26).

NBC News reports:

President Emmanuel Macron said on Twitter after the pair met in Paris that he is “committed” to help address the challenge of 264 million children being out of school.

He mentioned the social action platform Global Citizen and a nonprofit founded by Rihanna, the Clara Lionel Foundation. The the Global Partnership for Education said Rihanna, its global ambassador, met with Macron about the urgency to fund global education.

“We focused on the topic of education from global aspects, and we will make a very big announcement this coming September,” Rihanna told journalists outside the Elysee palace in Paris after the meeting, without elaborating, according to Reuters.

The pair both took to their respective Twitter accounts to speak on the meeting. Rihanna, who boasts 75 million followers on the social media network, thanked President Macron and First Lady Brigette Macron.

President Macron was equally as gracious and posted a photo of the pair’s meeting while thanking Rihanna and her nonprofit, the Clara Lionel Foundation.

Listen to My Conversation with Sam Harris — About President Trump

By popular demand, I had a two-hour conversation with Sam Harris (a prominent Trump critic) about our different “filters” on our new president. You can listen to it here.

The Haters of Imaginary Events are out in force already. They imagine I said objectionable things during my conversation with Sam and they tweet about their hallucinations in anger. So far, no one has accurately stated my opinion before criticizing it. That’s a tell for cognitive dissonance. I’ll be making those monkeys dance today on my Twitter feed here.

Yale President Unveils Plan To Deal With Racial Tensions On Campus

Yale University President Peter Salovey announced Tuesday a series of steps the Ivy League institution will take in an attempt to better support minority students.

Salovey further emphasized that responding to concerns from marginalized communities does not mean the university has to suppress free speech, and said that nobody’s going to be punished for sharing their opinion. 

It is clear that Yale needs to “reaffirm and reinforce our commitment to a campus where hatred and discrimination have no place,” Salovey said in a campus-wide email. But, he added, the institution also needs to lay to rest ”the claim that it conflicts with our commitment to free speech, which is unshakeable.”

“The very purpose of our gathering together into a university community is to engage in teaching, learning, and research — to study and think together, sometimes to argue with and challenge one another, even at the risk of discord, but always to take care to preserve our ability to learn from one another,” Salovey wrote. 

Yale become a hotbed of protest this month following allegations that a fraternity discriminated against women of color — something the members vehemently deny. Tensions were further inflamed by an email from an administrator that questioned whether warning students not to wear offensive costumes was going too far, something some students felt was insensitive to minorities on campus.

Students demonstrated after the incidents, saying those examples speak to larger concerns about how marginalized students are treated at the New Haven, Connecticut, campus. 

“Yale’s long history, even in these past two weeks, has shown a steadfast devotion to full freedom of expression,” Salovey continued. “No one has been silenced or punished for speaking their minds, nor will they be. This freedom, which is the bedrock of education, equips us with the fullness of mind to pursue our shared goal of creating a more inclusive community.”

Salovey then laid out a series of steps the university will take. Here are some of them: 

  • Yale will create a multidisciplinary university center supporting scholarship around race, ethnicity and other aspects of social identity. The university will add four additional faculty positions to contribute to existing research from Yale professors around “unrepresented” and “under-represented” communities. 
  • Yale will launch a five-year series of conferences on issues of race, gender, inequality and inclusion.
  • Yale will double the budgets for the four campus cultural centers. 
  • All mental health professionals on campus will receive multicultural training.
  • The university will announce new details on improving financial aid for low-income students, but in the meantime is making funds available for students in emergency situations.  
  • All members of the administration, including Salovey, will receive training on “recognizing and combating racism and other forms of discrimination in the academy.”
  • The university will continue with its $ 50 million effort to expand diversity among faculty.

Peter Salovey’s entire email can be read here.

Jon Stewart: Donald Trump Is An Internet Troll Running For President

Comedian Jon Stewart returned to standup on Tuesday night, and wasted no time going after one of his favorite targets: Donald Trump. 

“It’s like an Internet comment troll ran for president,” the former “Daily Show” host said of the GOP presidential frontrunner at the 9th annual Stand Up for Heroes event in New York. 

(Warning: strong language ahead)

“When I was doing the program, we liked to make jokes about him because he’s hilarious and easily mockable,” Stewart said, according to Entertainment Weekly. “We would mock him with things such as, ‘He looks like a bewigged boiled ham,’ or something like that. So he would tweet in the middle of the night, ‘Jon Stewart’s real name is Leibowitz. He’s a Jew. Why does he run away from his heritage?’ You know, because that’s what I think most presidents would do. I remember Lincoln used to drunk tweet: ‘Hey, emancipate this, you fuck!'”

Stewart, who has had a long-running feud with Trump, was referring to tweets such as these: 

Stewart expressed some disbelief that Trump is a serious contender for the presidency.

Are we really doing this Donald Trump thing? We’re really doing that as a country?” Stewart said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “He’s fucked. I like to put my name in giant letters on everything I own as much as the next guy, but the only other people that do that are like 8-year-olds going to camp.”

Then, he broke out his famous Trump impression. 

“Where did I put that building? Oh there it is, Trump. Boom. Where’s my fucking helicopter? Boom, Trump,” Stewart said. “Where’s my wife? Boom, Trump, nice.”

If Trump is aware of Stewart’s jokes, he has yet to fire back on Twitter. 

Stewart had words for people who say they like Trump because of his unfiltered views. 

“People are like, ‘I like Trump; he says what he thinks,'” Stewart said, per The Hollywood Reporter. ”What he thinks is stupid. That’s like if your friend is like, ‘I would like to fuck your mom.’ Why would you say that? … I don’t give a shit if you’re politically correct, just be correct, correct.”

While it seems Trump got hit with the sharpest of comedic barbs, Stewart also told jokes about Ben Carson, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and even himself before wrapping it up with some exasperation over politics. 

“I’m done with this shit,” he said, according to EW. “Done, done, done.”

Felita Harris to Join Lela Rose as Senior Vice President

NEW YORK — Felita Harris is joining Lela Rose in the newly created role of senior vice president of global commercial development.
Last month Harris exited Donna Karan, where she was senior vice president of global sales, overseeing distribution in more than 30 countries. Executives at Donna Karan did not respond Monday to a request for comment about her successor.
During her 12 years at the company, she was at one point director of retail merchandising. Harris also once served as Piazza Sempione’s North American president and worked at such companies as Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Armani, St. John Knits and Agnona.
When she joins Lela Rose on Dec. 1, Harris will be responsible for leading the brand through its next growth phase by focusing on wholesale for the designer’s ready-to-wear, bridal and newly launched accessories business in the U.S. and internationally.
“Felita will play an integral role in leading and developing the wholesale business,” said founder and designer Rose, whose label is sold in Canada, Europe, Russia, the Middle East and Asia.

The Cage Fight President

As regular readers know, I believe humans are moist robots with little awareness of why we do what we do. For example, someone (I’m not sure who) pointed out that the American public usually votes for the presidential team that would win a cage fight. Let’s see if you agree. I will consider only the presidents from my lifetime, which roughly corresponds to the age of television.

Keep in mind that Republicans have lost every time they had a disabled vet (McCain and Dole) or a woman (Ferraro) on the ticket. Jimmy Carter, at 5′9″ lost reelection to Reagan. Those are the obvious ones. Let’s look at some more matchup.

1952: Eisenhower and Nixon beat Adlai Stevenson and Kefauver. Obviously the professional killer in that group was Eisenhower. And who loses a fight to someone named Adlai?

1956: Same match as above

1960: Kennedy and Johnson beat Nixon and Henry Cabot Lodge, as I imagine they would in a cage fight. Kennedy was young and vigorous, while Johnson was nearly 6′4″ and dangerous-sounding.

1964: Johnson and Humphrey beat Goldwater and Miller. Johnson was again the big dog (physically) in that race.

1968: Nixon and Agnew beat Humphrey (the ultimate beta male) and Muskie.

1972: Nixon and Agnew beat McGovern (beta male) and Shriver.

1976: Carter and Mondale beat Ford and Dole. (Dole has one good arm.)

1980: Reagan and Bush beat Carter (5′9″) and beta male Mondale. 

1984: Reagan and Bush beat beta male Mondale and Ferraro, as they would in a fight.

1988: Bush and Quayle beat little 5′8″ Dukakis and crypt-keeper Lloyd Bentsen.

Those matches were easy to call. But how about the ones after? You be the judge.

1992: Clinton and Gore beat Bush (senior) and Quayle.

1996: Clinton and Gore beat Dole and Kemp.

2000: Bush and Cheney beat Gore and Lieberman (but lost popular vote)

2004: Bush and Cheney beat Kerry and Edwards

2008: Obama and Biden beat McCain and Palin

2012: Obama and Biden beat Romney and Ryan

According to the cage fight hypothesis, who do you think would win a cage fight if the competitors were Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Ben Carson?

We need to know the VP choices to make an informed prediction. But according to the cage fight hypothesis, Trump would beat either Carson and Clinton simply by picking another alpha male as a running mate. (Here I am assuming Gentle Ben Carson is not good in a fight.)

According to the cage fight hypothesis, Carson could beat Clinton by picking a large male running mate. Clinton could only win by picking Ronda Rousey as a running mate. And Trump would win with Mark Cuban as a running mate, at least under the cage fight hypothesis. Unless Rousey or someone with similar killing power runs with Clinton.

Do you see any validity to the cage fight hypothesis? I don’t want it to be true, but a lot of coincidences are piling up.

I wrote a book that says systems for success are better than goals. People say that idea is dramatically improving their lives. I hope so.

Valerie Jarrett Doesn’t Think America Would Embrace An Anti-Gay President

Senior White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett has a message for the GOP presidential candidates — namely, Rand Paul, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz — who’ve been running on an anti-gay agenda.

“It might be interesting in the 24-hour news cycle,” she told me in a recent interview on SiriusXM Progress. “But ultimately… the American people don’t embrace that kind of opinion.”

Jarrett, who spoke with me about a groundbreaking federal report that calls for ending “conversion therapy” programs for minors who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, responded to Rand Paul’s assertion in Iowa several days earlier that LGBT people don’t need to be protected by law against discrimination in employment. Paul, in backing up his claim, said, “If you are gay, there are plenty of places that will hire you,” explaining that “the things you do in your house, just leave those in your house and they wouldn’t have to be a part of the workplace.”

“Well, this is what I would say to you on that subject,” Jarrett said. “President Obama was elected not once, but twice based on his vision of America, which is one that unifies us, one that is inclusive, that says we should embrace all of our citizens, that we are a nation of immigrants, and that diversity is a strength. And that’s what the majority of the American people voted for, not once, but twice.”

Jarrett also discussed a report that was released this week by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, which looked at statements from across the spectrum of child adolescent and development experts regarding both gender identity and sexual orientation. The White House had previously called for banning “conversion therapy” for minors, something three states (California, Oregon and New Jersey) have already done.

“The report concluded firmly that conversion therapy — and the goal of conversion therapy is to change someone’s sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression — and it concludes that it’s not appropriate for mental health providers to engage in, and so this is a really important report,” Jarrett said. “What we should be doing is celebrating our young people, allowing them to be who they are, loving them for who they are, and not trying to change their identity.”

Jarrett talked about the immense progress the Obama administration has made on LGBT equality, sharing a story about the successful push to repeal ”Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” which illustrates the great strides.

“I went to the Defense Department on the first anniversary of [the repeal],” she recounted. “And I sat there in the Pentagon with people in uniform who had to [previously] sneak into my office at the White House to talk about how important it would be to repeal it and who were saying, ‘You know, here we are in the military. We’re making this pledge and this oath and we’re having to lie about who we are.’ And so, for me to see them, sitting there in their uniforms, embraced by the Secretary of Defense — it just shows you how much progress we have made.”

In a lighter moment, Jarrett also weighed in on the plot line of ”The Good Wife,” the CBS drama on which she made an appearance as herself last season, urging Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) to run for state’s attorney in Illinois. She said she decided do the show because she believes more women need to enter politics and it was an opportunity to put that message forth. 

Asked if she believes Florrick’s husband, Gov. Peter Florrick (Chris Noth), should be chosen by Hillary Clinton as a vice presidential running mate should she win the Democratic nomination — something for which the character is positioning himself, as the 2016 presidential race is part of the storyline this season  – Jarrett answered with a definitive no.

“I think she should think about Alicia,” she advised. “I would go back to the candidate that I brought to the party, and I’d say hands down I’d pick Alicia over Peter, any day. But if not, then maybe next year Alicia will actually run for president.”

Obama Gives Kanye Advice On Running for President

With the chances of Kanye West running for president in 2020 still being questioned, it looks like he’s trying to get the love of the current Commander-in-Chief. President Barack Obama added his comments on Ye’s possible run today at the Democratic National Convention Fundraiser in San Francisco. According to ABC NewsObama’s comments included:

“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.

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?

Kanye West Is Running For President In 2020

Kanye West, greatest human on earth, announced Sunday that he will be running for president of the United States of America in 2020.

“I have decided in 2020 to run for president,” West said Sunday at the VMAs. The announcement naturally led to huge applause for the future leader of the free world. 

The announcement was made during West’s acceptance of the Video Vanguard Award. As it is only 2015, there will still have to be an interim president elected in the meantime in 2016. 

West also discussed additional things during the speech, such as his grocery shopping habits, the children, art and a bunch of other stuff. But none of that matters now. 

Update — 11:18 p.m.: Khloe is down.

Kanye West Is Running For President? Yup!

Tonight at the Video Music Awards on MTV, Kanye West made a startling revelation…he’s running for president!

As the rapper accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, h revealed in his acceptance speech that he was running for president in 2020.

At the end of the speech he said:

It’s about ideas bro, new ideas bro. People with ideas. People who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.

Here is Kanye West’s full speech from the VMAs.

Bro, bro, listen to the kids. Jeremy, I got to put it down for a second, it’s beautiful, Jeremy Scott designed… First of all, thank you Taylor for being so gracious and giving me this award this evening. And I often think back to the first day that I met you. Also, you know, I think about when I’m in the grocery store with my daughter and I have a really great conversation about fresh juice, you know, and at the end they say, “You’re not that bad after all.” And I think about it sometimes, like it crosses my mind when I go to a baseball game and 60,000 people boo me. It crosses my mind a little bit.

And I think, if I had to do it all again, what would i have done? Would I have worn a leather shirt? Would I have drank half a bottle of Hennessy and given the rest to the audience? Y’all know you drank that bottle too. If I had a daughter at that time, would I have went on stage and grabbed the mic from someone else’s…

You know this arena, tomorrow, it’s gonna be a completely different set up or something like that. This stage will be gone. After that night, the stage will be gone, but the effect it had on people will remain. The problem was the contradiction. The contradiction is: I do fight for artists, but in that fight I somehow was disrespectful to artists. I didn’t know how to say the right thing, the perfect thing. I just… I sat at the Grammys and saw Justin Timberlake and Cee-Lo lose. Gnarls Barkley and the Future Sex album… Justin, I ain’t trying to put you on blast but I saw that man in tears, bro. And I was thinking like, he deserves to win album of the year. And this small box that we are in as the entertainers of the evening. How could you explain that? Sometimes I feel like, you know, all this bullshit that they run about beef and all that, sometimes I feel like I died for the artist’s opinion. For the artists to be able to have an opinion after they were successful. I’m not no politician, bro. And look at that. You know how many times MTV ran that footage again? ’cause it got them more ratings. You know how many times they announced that Taylor was gonna give me the award? ’cause it got them more ratings. Listen to the kids, bro.

I still don’t understand award shows. I don’t understand how they get five people who worked their entire life one sold records, sold concert tickets, to come stand on a carpet and for the first time in their life be judged on a chopping block and have the opportunity to be considered a loser. I don’t understand it, brah. I don’t understand when the biggest album and the biggest video… I’ve been conflicted, bro! I just wanted people to like me more. Fuck it bro.

Two thousand and fifteen. I will die for the art, for what I believe in. The art ain’t always gonna be polite. Y’all might be thinking right now, “I wonder, did he smoke something before he came here?” The answer is yes, I rolled up a little something to knock the edge off. I don’t know what’s gonna happen tonight. I don’t know what’s gonna happen tomorrow, bro. But all I can say to my artist, my fellow artist, just worry about how you feel at the time man.

Just worry about how you feel and don’t never… I’m confident, I believe in myself. We the millennials, bro. This is a new mentality. We’re not gonna control our kids with brands. We’re not gonna teach low self esteem and that to our kids. We gonna teach our kids that they can be something. We’re gonna teach our kids that they can stand up for themselves. We’re gonna teach our kids to believe in themselves. If my grandfather was here right now he would not let me back down. I don’t know what I’m finna lose after this, but don’t matter though cause it’s not about me. It’s about ideas bro, new ideas bro. People with ideas. People who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.

Choosing a President in Three Words or Less

Before the next Republican presidential debate, I suggest the sponsors hop a plane to London and share a beer with Matthew Kempton.

In late 2014, the 34-year-old app developer, together with his partners James Mitchell and Tom Ollerton, created 3UP, a mobile messaging app that limited communication to three words. The concept made even 140-character tweets seem cumbersome.

The app never caught on; Kempton jokes that about 30 of his friends downloaded it, sending messages like “Hung over today!” and “Meet next week?” Today it can only be purchased in the UK’s App Store. Still, Kempton believes three word communication has merit, seeing that he and his partners spent several weeks using ONLY the app to communicate.

“We cut out a lot of the unnecessary crap,” he said. “Then, when we finally did meet up (in person), we found we really wanted to listen to each other.”

What a concept!

Like 24 million other Americans, I watched 10 candidates stand in a Cleveland sports arena earlier this month and listened to them blather on incessantly about how they would fix America. Frequently, they exceeded their one-minute allotted times, often veering farther off course than a Tiger Woods tee shot. Seriously, Governor Kasich, what does job growth in Ohio have to do with illegal immigration?

This is why I’m proposing the 3UP concept be applied to all future GOP debates, nine of which are tentatively scheduled. There should be three-word questions followed by, at most, three word answers. Only after the primaries are completed and a candidate chosen, can he or she share viewpoints in greater detail. In fact, let’s start with a do over of the Cleveland beauty pageant, er, debate. Same Fox News moderators, same candidates, same day of the week. The debate would last, at most, 15 minutes, meaning Fox wouldn’t have to preempt its stellar lineup of primetime Thursday shows like boom!, a “fun-filled, trivia-charged, slime-soaked, entertainment blast” according to the Fox website. Megyn Kelly, please begin.

“Welcome candidates to the ‘Less is More’ debate. I’m Megyn Kelly along with Bret Baier and Chris Wallace. Gentlemen, you know the rules. Of course, the three-word format means I can’t ask my first question, ‘Why isn’t the camera on me more often?’ Mr. Trump, first question to you. View of women?”

“I love ’em!”

“All of them?”

“Except Rosie O’Donnell.”

“Pardon me, Megyn, but that was a four-word answer.”

“O’Donnell is one word, Mr. Huckabee. Not two. Bret, your question.”

“Thanks Megyn. Dr. Carson, who are you?”

“I’m a neurosurgeon.”

“Any political experience?”

“None whatsoever.”

“Care to rephrase? You’re entitled to an extra word.”

“None. Vote me!”

“Thank you. Chris, your question.”

“Senator Rubio, thoughts on immigration?”

“Build a fence.”

“If illegals tunnel?”

“Guard the tunnel!”

“Send rapists home!”

“Thank you, Mr. Trump, but that question was for Senator Rubio. We’ll hear from you later, time permitting. The next question goes to Governor Christie. Collect phone records?”

“Yeah, do it!”

“Only from terrorists.”

“That’s ridiculous, Rand.”

“You’re ridiculous, Chris.”

“Put ’em up!”

(CHRISTIE RAISES FISTS AT RAND PAUL AS AUDIENCE HOOTS AND APPLAUDS IN EAGER ANTICIPATION. KELLY INTERVENES)

“Gentlemen, calm down. But thank you both for threatening each other within the rules. As you know, we were going to take questions from Facebooks users, but not a single user submitted a three word question. That’s not surprising considering nobody is ever brief and concise when using Facebook. So, I’ll ask the next question. Governor Walker, still pro-life?”

“Always pro-life.”

“With no exceptions?”

“Never considered any.”

“Is that reasonable?”

“Sure. Why not?”

“Thank you, Governor. Bret, you’re up.”

“Thanks, Megyn. Jeb Bush, let’s discuss jobs. Create how many?”

“Nineteen million.”

“That’s NEW jobs?”

“Give or take.”

“What percent growth?”

“Four sounds good.”

“So, just to reiterate to the viewing audience, Jeb Bush has promised 19 million new jobs and four percent economic growth. That’s correct, sir?”

“Sounds about right.”

“Thank you. Megyn, you get the final question.”

“Thanks, Brett. I’ll make it brief. Mr. Trump, Republican or Democrat?”

“I’ve supported both.”

“Which are you?”

“Not nice Megyn.”

“Answer the question.”

“I smell blood.”

“And we’re done. On behalf of my colleagues, I’m Megyn Kelly. To view the top six seconds of this debate, please download the Vine app.”

How Trump Becomes President

I’m watching the Donald Trump campaign for president with the same amount of amusement as everyone else. The only difference is that I think he has a legitimate shot at becoming president. You’ll choke when I tell you why, because you’ll agree.

Realistically, the mood of the country is that it is time for a woman to be president. If you have watched any broadcast TV lately you know that commercials have swung from the traditional anti-woman sexist stuff of the past to become flagrantly anti-male. (Mostly. Still some exception.) That’s the national mood. Clinton is in the right place at the right time. The era of women has arrived. Nothing but a health problem or a new scandal could stop the inevitability train. 

But if Hillary does not coast into the White House as I expect (and this is a prediction, not a preference) you will see a Donald Trump presidency.

Here’s why. I’ll start with some obvious stuff and then get to my surprise reason that Trump could become president. I’ll bet you don’t see it coming. 

For starters, the visceral reaction that makes so many people dislike Trump has a lot to do with his New York style. I grew up in upstate New York and his style registers with me in a completely different way than it does with my California friends who can’t stand him. What I see is bluntness, honesty, some risk-taking, and a competitive nature. I don’t hate any of that. In fact, I kind of like it. 

I have blogged about making the transition from my New York personality to my California personality. New Yorkers tend to say whatever they think is true to whoever is standing nearby. Not much filter. Californians say what they think will make you feel good. The California way would feel like lying if it were not so well-meaning. 

I certainly understand that Trump comes off as arrogant, obnoxious, and lots of other bad stuff. But over time, and compared to the liars on stage with him, you might get hooked on hearing his honest opinions. That’s how the New York style works. At first you hate it because it seems so harsh. In time you start to appreciate the honesty. And when you realize the harshness is not a signal of real evil – just a style – you tend to get over it. He won’t win over all of his haters, but I predict that his New York style will grow on people more than you would expect. You could say his style is his biggest problem, but it might be self-solving with time and exposure. He is getting both.

When I speak of honesty in this context, I’m not talking about Trump inflating his business success record. Keep in mind that Trump is literally in the business of exaggerating the value of his brand, so if you see him doing exactly that – and breaking no laws in the process – you might come to understand it as nothing but a business approach that is apparently working.

Trump is a business-Republican as opposed to a social conservative. He is the first candidate in memory that could legitimately offer this proposition:

1. Social freedom (that liberals like)

2. Stronger economy without raising taxes (that Republicans like)

I’m not saying he can deliver on any promises. I’m only saying he is likely to have the sort of platform that looks appealing to independents.

Now let’s say Trump gets strategic because he sees that his stroll across the presidential landscape is being taken seriously. He never really had to get serious before. But I’ll bet he could turn it on like a switch if he thought it would get him elected. I would expect him to dial back his crazy-sounding stuff as his poll numbers grow.

But that’s not what gets him elected. If he wants the independents and some Democrats to vote his way, he needs something bigger. He needs a trump card. 

And he has it.

His hair.

I believe Donald Trump could become President of the United States if he promised to shave his head upon winning. Or perhaps he could do it a month before election to suck all the media attention from his competitor.

Right. Think about it. Voters are emotional creatures and they would love such an act of humility coming from such an egotistical jerk. People love to see other people change. That is the formula for successful movies: The protagonist changes when the audience thinks such change is not possible. We LOVE that.

Hillary Clinton has a 95% chance of being our next president unless we get some surprises. But the other 5% is all Trump. So if Clinton stumbles, Trump is running the country. Assuming he shaves his head.

[Update: This article is a good complement to my post. And it makes me wonder how long before Trump’s supporters will be labelled “limbics.”]

 White guys aplenty! It sounds like a ’90s jazz fusion band.

 

Finally President Obama’s marriage-for-all, healthcare-for-all, economic-success-ridden reign of terror will soon be over, and we’ll get back to the principles this country was founded on: a lot of out-of-touch, powerful wealthy white dudes trying to get more wealthy and more powerful.

BuzzFeed took to the streets to ask average Americans their opinion of the candidates and if they could actually remember the names of so many pasty dudes.

BRUH News: NAACP President Caught Lying About Being Black [VIDEO]

We’ve come across some incredulous bleaching Black culture cases in our day but Rachel Dolezal may go down as the most unbelievable instance.

The long-serving NAACP president of the Spokane, Washington chapter is being accused–and seemingly rightfully so–of lying about her ethnicity. Which, of course, in the case of the a NAACP president, is African-American.

Reports The Spokesman-Review:

Dolezal is the president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, chairwoman of the city’s Office of Police Ombudsman Commission, adjunct professor at Eastern Washington University and commentator in the Inlander weekly newspaper. Formerly she was director of education at the Human Rights Education Institute in Coeur d’Alene.

Dolezal’s mother, Ruthanne Dolezal, said Thursday by phone from her home in Northwest Montana that she has had no contact with her daughter in years. She said her daughter began to “disguise herself” in 2006 or 2007, after the family had adopted four African-American children and Rachel Dolezal had shown an interest in portrait art.

It’s very sad that Rachel has not just been herself,” Ruthanne Dolezal said. “Her effectiveness in the causes of the African-American community would have been so much more viable, and she would have been more effective if she had just been honest with everybody.”

Contacted at her EWU office, Dolezal avoided responding directly to questions about her ethnicity and race, saying she first needs to meet with members of the local NAACP chapter’s executive committee before having a broader discussion with the community about what she described as a “multi-layered” issue.

“I feel like that question is not as easy as it seems,” she said. “There’s a lot of complexities … and I don’t know that everyone would understand that.”

Later, in an apparent reference to studies tracing the origins of human life to Africa, Dolezal added: “We’re all from the African continent.”

She blames her parents’ comments on contentious litigation that has divided the family over allegations of past abuse.

You ain’t gotta lie to kick, my sister. You ain’t gotta try so hard. Ruthanne also told the publication the family’s ancestry is Czech, Swedish and German.

In a video interview with KXLY posted today (June 11), Dolezal’s face turned to stone when asked whether or not she was Black. Watch it below.

Chris Christie Launches Bid to Become New President of FIFA, Citing Ability to Build Bridges

2015-06-03-1433346583-1567787-christieresized2.jpg

Photographer: Luigi Novi

In a dramatic week for world football, Sepp Blatter, the President of FIFA, gave himself a red card and announced his resignation, and Chris Christie declared his goal of replacing him.

At a hastily arranged news conference in a Dunkin Donuts, Governor Christie said:

“I have always believed that I would make a great President, so for the benefit of the people of New Jersey, America and the world, I will be formally announcing my candidacy for the Presidency of FIFA as soon as I’m done eating. “

As reporters collectively choked on their frosted maple crèmes, Christie continued:

“I have to tell you guys that I would be the perfect person to replace Blatter.

I appreciate that a deep knowledge of football is essential for this job, and I have it! I’ve been watching the Cowboys, the Giants and the Eagles my entire life and I will bring all that know-how to the table for the benefit of American football fans throughout the world.

I also hear that running FIFA is like running the mafia. That’s awesome because I’m the Governor of New Jersey for Christ sakes, so enough said about my qualifications in that regard.

Additionally, I know that the new head of FIFA must have a lot of experience dealing with the US Department of Justice in ongoing criminal investigations. Well, guess what? I’ve been doing that for well over a year now!

Most importantly, I believe FIFA really needs someone to build all the bridges that have been burnt during this entire fiasco. And as I’m sure you will agree, whenever anyone thinks of bridges nowadays, they immediately think of me!”

After his announcement, Christie did not immediately respond to questions from reporters, citing an urgent need to finish his doughnut.

In further developments, other republican FIFA presidential hopefuls also declared their candidacies, notably Rick Perry, Scott Walker and Sarah Palin — the latter of whom called the decision to give the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, “the worst supreme court ruling since Roe v. Wade.”

No matter who else throws their hat into the ring, Christie is likely be the most appealing candidate to FIFA sponsors such as McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s, Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken — particularly given his extraordinary rates of consumption.

However, when contacted for comment, Irma Crook, one of the few remaining executives at FIFA, said: “Chris Christie wants to become the new President of FIFA? Oh my God, quick! Let’s get Sepp Blatter back!”

In a press conference on Tuesday in Zurich, Switzerland, Sepp Blatter banished himself to the shadow realm. He’s gone — or, at least, he says he will be — which means that after 17 years of misuse and abuse, FIFA will finally get a new president.

This is perhaps the greatest victory Sports Twitter has seen since the last time Riley Curry did something adorable. As soon as the announcement broke, timelines were flush with reactions to Blatter.

Footballers from around the world are weighing-in as well:

Why I’m Running for President as a Republican

Today I am announcing my candidacy for the Republican Party’s nomination for President of the United States of America. You might justifiably point out that I — a Democrat — would be an odd choice to lead the Republican ticket. To these naysayers, I counter that by adding me to the field, Republicans would have enough candidates to field two complete football teams. This way, Bobby Jindal gets to play, too.

If elected I promise to take the oath of office, put the New York Yankees on the list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations, and then promptly resign. My short list for Vice President so far includes Orioles manager Buck Showalter, Costco CEO W. Craig Jenilek, and Joe Biden, any of whom would lead this country with far more experience, wisdom and humor than I or, for that matter, any of the other current Republican candidates.

My shortcomings are legion. I have little experience relevant to this job that I do not intend to do, and I’m willing to put forth no effort at any point during this campaign.

But with George Pataki entering the race, I realized that I, too, am a largely unknown heterosexual white man in America. Even Bob Ehrlich is thinking about getting in. If they can, why not I?

I know what you’re thinking. “Who the heck are those guys?” That’s my strategy. I’m going to put on a gray suit and a red tie and slip in behind these guys. I’m a middle-aged white guy with short hair. I’ll blend into the crowd of candidates long enough for voters to get sick of everyone else. I figure it’ll take two months until I’m the frontrunner.

Sure, the primary process will be hard for a liberal Democrat. A sober-minded politician would shudder at the staggering impossibility of winning over the torch-and-pitchfork crowd that controls the primary process, but not being sober is something that will separate me from the field.

My opponents will inevitably bring up my history of causing Republicans to lose elections. Ask yourself, my fellow Americans, whether this is any different than my friends Rick Santorum and Ehrlich, both of whom got booted out of office all on their own.

In my more lucid moments I plan to make the case that there’s nothing wrong with the Republican Party that not being Republican can’t fix. In fact, it’s my Democratic bona fides that could win back the White House for Republicans. Shifting demographics, ideologies and generations are slowly putting the GOP out to pasture. But instead of broadening its appeal, the Republicans have made their party so small and pure that it can’t win back the White House.

That’s where I can help. I already don’t agree with most of the stuff they stand for. I represent the voters they need to win over.

But that’s just a process argument that the pundits can recite on the Sunday morning gab fests to sound smart. What’s really going to get me elected is an anti-government stance that will unite this country: Everyone should get to punch their Member of Congress in the nose.

See? Now you want to vote for me, don’t you?

Obviously, there would be restrictions: The privilege to sock one’s elected representative in the kisser would be limited to people who actually voted in every single election from President down to Inspector of Hides. And you only get to do it once every two years. This would inevitably increase voting participation and encourage Americans to read the newspapers.

And while punching politicians might be cruel, it could serve as a deterrent to doing the wrongheaded things that have made Congress less popular in opinion polls than North Korea, cockroaches, and lice. True, you’d never get another smart person to run for Congress ever again, but in most cases no one would notice a difference.

In conclusion, I promise never to disgrace the Republican Party by acting like a real Republican. All the GOP needs to do to win the White House is to nominate a liberal Democrat. Vote for me, and you get to punch Congress in the nose.

I’d better start working on my victory speech.

The Top Ten Ways to Select the Republican Candidate for President

2015-05-26-1432680284-361808-telephone.jpg

Oy Vey! Does the Republican Party have a problem! It’s the large and unwieldy field of aspiring presidential nominees, all of whom want to appear in upcoming debates. But space is limited. Who should be left out? Who should get the call? And how should that be determined? Such a dilemma!

A Modest Proposal

The answer is simple. Have candidates compete on the Nation’s top reality TV shows. It’s a format they should all feel comfortable with. The GOP, after all, has had a long and contentious relationship with reality. And reality shows are to reality what Fox News is to news.

The qualities we are looking for and the challenges… Drum roll please!

#10: Loveable Ignorance

2015-05-26-1432670392-2364386-fifthgrader.jpg

Can’t distinguish an opinion from a fact? Consider that a plus. In this game, it pays to be a dumb-ass. Three things: Deficit is really spelled with a “c.” There really is no “e” at the end of “potato.” Now what was that third thing?

#9: Specialized Knowledge

2015-05-26-1432670592-3347716-jeopardy.jpg

You really have to know something however. What better than a substantial grasp of trivial information and a lack of understanding as to how those isolated facts actually relate to one another, or the larger context in which they exist? Most important of all is your ability to answer a question with a question.

#8: Down-Home Persona

2015-05-26-1432670787-4145280-DuckDynasty.jpg

Where’s Joe the plumber when we really need him? Demonstrate your ability to create the facade of ordinariness. Live in a duck blind. Shoot your partner inadvertently in the head without killing him. Be one of the people, a down-home non-pretentious kind of guy, dislike modern technology, disdain formal education, hate gays, extol your Christian heritage, not reveal your entitled background. Ignore charges by those who claim to have known you “before you were a virgin.”

#7: A Trim and Sleek Image

2015-05-27-1432764054-3142789-biggestloser2.jpg

How fast can you discard embarrassing baggage without causing a stir? It begins with your ability to maintain a trim physical image despite suffering through a series of greasy spoon specials, fried chicken dinners and pancake breakfasts.* That’s only one aspect of this grueling challenge, however. You also have to avoid discussing matters of substance. There’s no place for weighty issues if you hope to wage a successful campaign. Discard them as fast as you did the pounds.

*Note: Tummy tucks not allowed.

#6: Financial Acumen

2015-05-26-1432671311-7401053-sharktank.jpg

Every viable candidate has to fully understand the world of commerce — how money works and how to work with it. Create a cockamamie product, pass it off as something viable; and proceed to convince a group of high bank-rollers to invest in it. Your product is actually a piece of crap, but that shouldn’t really matter. It’s only a pretext for getting their support. The only thing that matters is you. That it is what they are really buying into, and it is your job is to convince them that that it is in their best interests to do so, e.g., you really understand that things do go better with Koch.

#5: Guts and Grit

2015-05-26-1432671526-8803888-amazingrace.jpg

Test your ability to improvise on the run, negotiate foreign landscapes and confront unforeseen challenges. Traversing several continents, you will participate in: a scavenger hunt in Benghazi, leap into a corporate polluted river, bungee jump across an oil spill, sit for a home-made video, clad in an orange jumpsuit in the middle of a desert, and host a social luncheon of spare ribs and beer with Sunnis and Shiites at a Ramadi Inn.

#4: Thrift and Parsimony

2015-05-26-1432672381-2019192-topchef.jpg

Show the voters in no uncertain terms how little the average person really needs in order to have a healthy and fulfilling life. Working from a random selection of food scavenged from a dumpster, concoct a nutritious five course meal,* representing all major food groups, to be served to others.

*Note: Ketchup does not count as a vegetable.

#3: Obliviousness

2015-05-26-1432672441-5427037-survivor.png

Demonstrate how easily a person can shut out the real world and ignore real world conditions. Live for a week in a boarded up house in the Middle of Detroit, as part of a collective with residents of the area, work in a fast-food joint and bear responsibility for several underage children. Your ability to adjust to these conditions and be at home with them will be judged by the residents who will vote members off as they cease to adapt.

#2a: Flexibility and Openness to Change

2015-05-26-1432673609-164852-makeover.jpg

How easily can you accept erasure of your past and the creation of a new public image? A professional Spin Doctor will work his miraculous skills on you, transforming your drab ordinary self into a glamorous and attractive personage. Roll with the punches as he redoes all previous positions, including statements in print, public utterances and voting record, making embarrassing blemishes vanish in a flash — especially those gained in earlier primaries. Winners will feel neither shame nor discomfort as they segue comfortably into their new policy positions and new persona.

#2b: Nimbleness and Dexterity

2015-05-26-1432673237-2903537-dancing.jpg

You can’t represent the party well without being able to evade major issues and promote wedge issues with panache.This means being able to think on your feet; avoid missteps, stay a step ahead of the media by keeping your foot out of your mouth, and doing a quick shuffle while answering questions. Above all, avoid stepping on the toes of supporters.

# 1: Je ne sais quoi

2015-05-26-1432673137-970180-bachelorette.jpg

Do you really have that certain something? Enough to woo and win the hand of a charming young vixen?… Guess who?

TOP SPOT: Scott Kay has appointed jewelry industry veteran Michael Benavente president. Benavente most recently served as Americas managing director of Gucci’s watch and jewelry division for more than a decade. His official start date is Tuesday. In his new role, Benavente will report to Jonathan Goldman, chairman and chief executive officer of Frederick Goldman Inc., which has operated the Scott Kay brand as a subsidiary since February. Goldman acquired the jewelry brand, previously its rival, in the aftermath of Kay’s death in December.
“Michael has proven success and a solid background in building strong luxury brands, expanding profitable distribution and assembling interdisciplinary teams,” Goldman said of Benavente.

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.

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.”

Why a Woman Can’t Be President

I am a woman. In fact, that’s one of the first things I usually notice about me. As a woman, I think I know a thing or two about what a lady brain, lady body and lady heart are lady capable of. So naturally, Hillary Clinton’s announcement Sunday left me cry-eating two pints of Ben & Jerry’s and stress-plucking my body hairs — which I probably would have done anyway, but still.

I was shocked to see so many people enthusiastically supporting her bid to be the first person to preside over America while female. Because my XX chromosomes make me obsessed with organizing, labeling and doing busy work to distract myself from the overwhelming dissatisfaction that defines my very being, I made a cute little listicle to help you understand why being the president of America isn’t exactly women’s work.

Women’s Bones Are Made of Glass

Have you ever noticed how no woman has ever opened her own jar of pasta sauce, bottle of lorazepam or door to a building or car? That’s because lady bones are actually hollow glass tubes. When you’re president, 83 percent of your job is shaking hands with foreign male leaders, and a woman’s brittle glass bones simply can’t stand up to that.

Nothing says, “Please nuke all of America” like a girl-president’s lady fingers shattering in Hassan Rouhani’s hand.

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake is an American prince and entertainer whose stunning voice and titillating dance moves can induce menarche in infants and make elderly Catholic nuns wet. If a woman became president, Justin Timberlake would be hunted by every anti-American regime on the planet — so he could be used as a weapon against the free world.

Imagine if Kim Jong Un got his hands on JT. One late-night FaceTime session and boom. Launch codes; classified military operations; our presidette’s girl boobs plastered all over whatever North Korea has instead of computers.

Women Only Eat Salad & Chocolate

Lobbyists are a problem in Washington. Luckily, men have diverse interests that give all players an equal shot to get their corporate cause sponsored by the American government. With a lady in office, that fairness is out the window. Big Salad and Big Chocolate would control every taxpayer dollar. Pretty soon, it won’t just be women living off salads and chocolate. It’ll be every American. I’m talking boys, too. Your son’s Pop Warner football team isn’t going to fare too well when their only protein is coming from a skewer of three tiny blackened shrimp atop a Caesar. Ohmygod that sounds so good.

Women Love to Say “No”

Whether it’s to totally reasonable ideas for dinner dates or to propositions of sex by perfectly nice strangers on the street, female people can’t get enough of the n-word. NO. How are legislators gonna ‘slate when Madame Woman President is always getting her ‘toes done? Her VE-toes.

Ovaries

75 percent of the human body is water, but 75 percent of the huwoman body is ovaries. Ovaries suck energy from the fe-brain, making it impossible for women to truly get “The Issues.” I’m pretty sure “The Issues” is a thing that men talk about when they run for office. In a lady’s “brain,” there’s only room for The Bachelor, mom stuff, and the movie Magic Mike.

Ovaries are also what make women bitches. There’s no “bitch” in diplomacy…that’s why men are so good at it. Ovaries might make a woman “ovaryact” to a national tragedy and enter into multiple seemingly endless wars that waste trillions of taxpayer dollar. Which brings me to…..

Spending

Taxpayer dollars are like your husband’s credit card. Women be shopping!

All the Presidents Have Been Boys, Even the Ones Who Wore Wigs

It’s not “equality” to demand that you can have everything someone else has. President has always been a boy’s job! Men aren’t trying to be moms or under-valued office managers or basketball players’ wives. The job of president is defined by man-qualities:

  • Being a natural citizen
  • Living at least thirty-five years
  • Understanding law, history, global and domestic issues
  • Having a sweet wang and at least one testicle

So please, everyone. Whether you like your states red, blue or whatever color libertarians are right now — vote male. That office is oval enough as it is.

An Open Letter to the President of France

Dear President Francois Hollande,

I want to start by thanking you for caring enough about women’s well-being to make changes in France’s policies. Banishing pro-anorexia websites and not allowing dangerously thin models to walk your nation’s runways could help minimize the epidemic of body-hate and responsive self-harm that runs so rampant. I’m also grateful for the conversations your campaign to stop anorexia has spurred, and feel compelled to offer my own thoughts.

I realize I’m one voice amid countless, and it’s likely this won’t even reach you. For this reason, I’m sharing this letter publicly, with hopes its message might make a positive difference — if not for a country or industry, then for someone.

These issues are dear to my heart. I modeled for years, and nearly died of anorexia while working in Paris. I’ve since fully recovered, and spent over eight years as a nutritionist, offering dietary therapy for people struggling with eating disorders and related issues. Now, as an experienced health writer, radio host and public speaker, I routinely interview experts in psychology and medicine, as well as women who’ve overcome severe self and body shame. As someone who can speak from multiple sides of the body-shaming epidemic, I thought my insight might prove helpful.

On BMI as the Determining Factor

Others have expressed concerns about your new law, prohibiting anyone from hiring a model with a below healthy BMI. I share those concerns. (For those who aren’t familiar, Body Mass Index is a tool used to determine body fat content based on weight and height.) BMI is sadly inaccurate as a measure of health for many people, and I imagine many models will find ways to falsify their results.

Secondly, I’ve known models who were tall and lanky naturally, to the point of being bullied in their youth. Modeling gave them a sense of empowerment; finally, they weren’t being ridiculed for their atypical thinness, but celebrated. These women would undoubtedly fail the “healthy” BMI test. Ostracizing naturally thin women isn’t right.

Many women with eating disorders, including models, partake in dangerous tactics to maintain a slimmer physique — yet aren’t underweight by BMI standards.

In some ways, focusing on “the numbers” perpetuates the damaging notion that they matter most.

It’s understandable why you and your associates have taken this route, given the fact that anorexia diagnostics are based on such numbers. (They shouldn’t be, in my opinion.) But I side with others who’ve suggested alternate means of determining models’ wellness, such as thorough health exams. While helpful, however, I don’t think such measures would suffice.

More Effective Steps Toward Positive Change

Attempting to regulate the health of models, but still allowing the standards of thinness over all to carry on, won’t solve this epidemic. The standards need to change. While this is a huge task, it’s doable, in my opinion. Here are some powerful steps that would help:

  • Require fashion shows and magazines to depict a broad range of body shapes and sizes, as well as ages.
  • Encourage fashion designers to create clothing for those shapes, sizes and ages.
  • Don’t merely show women seducing cameras in editorial shoots. Show them working, creating art, raising kids, being human.
  • Require medics and other health/safety measures at fashion shows and photo shoots. (Show models that their safety and wellness matters as much as that of Hollywood actors’.)
  • Discourage modeling agents from making harsh comments about models’ weight.

Placing the pressure on those who hire models actually puts more pressure on the models themselves. If someone had landed in jail for hiring me when I was anorexic, I’m not sure I would have forgiven myself — and most women with anorexia are already crippled with shame.

One of the most important ways we can all contribute to a world that empowers, rather than shuns, women is by embracing ourselves.

I’ve personally boycotted fashion shows, publications and work I find de-powering. (The narrow definitions of “beauty” were a major reason I quit modeling, even though I had an ongoing career after healing.) I’ve stopped saying anything negative about my body, which has cultivated more positive thoughts. I’ve embraced my sexuality — a lack of which is another issue underlying many women’s body hate. And I’ve learned to pursue my passions, to stop living up to anyone else’s standards, knowing that in doing so, I can live a happier and more meaningful, impactful life.

Here’s hoping that no matter what efforts you and your administration prioritize moving forward, more women will start questioning whether those “extra” pounds are worth the time, tumult and energy making ourselves smaller requires — and that living largely means recognizing the existing real-beauty inherent in ourselves.

Sincerely,

August McLaughlin

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.

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.

15 Twitter Reactions To President Obama’s Free Community College Proposal [Photos]

President Obama today (Jan. 8) announced a proposal to offer the first two years of community college free to “anyone who’s willing to work for it.” Sounds good in theory, but not everyone is convinced that it’s a great idea. 

Reports AP:

Obama planned to formally announce the plan Friday at Pellissippi State Community College in Knoxville, Tennessee. He gave a preview in a videotaped message shot aboard Air Force One and posted on Facebook.

“It’s not just for kids,” Obama said. “We also have to make sure that everybody has the opportunity to constantly train themselves for better jobs, better wages, better benefits.”

Obama provided few specifics, and White House and Education Department officials on a conference call with reporters Thursday evening said the funding details would come out later with the president’s budget.

The White House did say that if all states participated, that nine million students could benefit — saving on average $ 3,800 in tuition per year for a full-time student. That means the program could cost in the billions of dollars. In a Republican-led Congress, the proposal likely faces a tough legislative fight to be passed.

“Free Community College”  was trending on Twitter and Facebook tonight, which shows that the possibility of affordable education in the U.S. is a conversation long overdue.
