    The morning after Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton for the presidency, twins Jenna and Barbara Bush, 35, woke up together in Jenna’s bed (her husband, Henry Hager, was away), “filled with gratitude that we had each other for comfort,” they write in their upcoming joint memoir. The divisiveness that marred the 2016 election—and how their profound connection as sisters was a force to lean on through that and other milestones in their lives—were key inspirations for the former first daughters’ book, Sisters First, out Oct. 24. In the deeply personal, emotional and often funny book, the sisters, who called the...

In her speech, the 35-year-old said she was 'very proud to stand with Planned Parenthood' because of the services it provides to women.

The announcement comes amid the continuing debate over federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides a variety of reproductive health services to women, including abortions. Barbara...

    Barbara Bush and Jenna Bush Hager wrote a warm letter to the Obamas' daughters, Malia and Sasha, cheering them on as they begin the next step in their lives after spending eight years in the White House. "Now you are about to join another rarified club, one of former First Children — a position you didn’t seek and one with no guidelines. But you have so much to look forward to," wrote the Bush sisters in a Time magazine op-ed published on Thursday. "You will be writing the story of your lives, beyond the shadow of your famous parents, yet...

    Barbara Bush, daughter of former President George W. Bush, wants Hillary Clinton to run for president. The 31 year-old CEO of the nonprofit Global Health Corps said she wants to see a Clinton run in 2016 in the upcoming Aug. 26 issue of People Magazine. During an interview that focused primarily on her volunteer work, Barbara Bush called Clinton "unbelievably accomplished." But a Clinton vote by the Bush twin, herself unaffiliated politically, is not guaranteed. "I don't know who she'd be running against," said the daughter of the Republican president.

    (CNN) – Former President George W. Bush's daughter Barbara is appearing in a new web video in support of gay marriage. The 20-second spot released Monday is sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, a civil rights organization that works to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. "I'm Barbara Bush and I'm a New Yorker for marriage equality," Bush says. "New York is about fairness and equality and everyone should have the right to marry the person that they love. Join us."

    Shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue in Washington, D.C. recently, Maria Shriver and her daughter left all the clothes the daughter tried on -- but didn't purchase -- on the floor of the dressing room. The sales staff was shocked that Shriver allowed her daughter, whose father is California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, to leave her rejects in a pile during their visit in mid-October. "She left the dressing room in a shambles," according to a sales clerk. "Why doesn't Maria Shriver teach her daughter manners and respect for others?" Shriver writes: "My role model, like most daughters, was my mother. She...

    WASHINGTON, (AP) -- Malia and Sasha Obama learned a few tricks from Barbara and Jenna Bush on their recent visit to the White House — like how to slide down the solarium ramp, bottom first. The daughters of President George W. Bush showed the girls their bedrooms, helped them jump on a bed and taught them a few ways to have fun, Laura Bush told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Wednesday. "It was fun for the girls to get to show them not only (their rooms), but the way the big cross hall can be an obstacle course for little...

    Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, the minister who presided over the recent marriage of President Bush’s daughter Jenna, has launched a pro-Barack Obama Web site sharply critical of conservative stalwart James Dobson. Caldwell, leader of the largest Methodist congregation in the country, launched his “James Dobson Does Not Speak For Me” site a day after Dobson’s Focus on the Family radio program aired a statement charging that Obama distorted the Bible to fit “his own confused theology.” The site urges readers to sign a statement declaring that Dobson does not represent them. The statement reads in part: “James Dobson doesn't speak for...

    A recent article on OneNewsNow featured comments by Methodist pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell, a Barack Obama supporter. The pastor took issue with James Dobson's contention that Obama distorts the Bible with his theological views. Caldwell, who is affiliated with the website JamesDobsonDoesntSpeakForMe.com, initially told OneNewsNow that the website was operated by Matthew 25, a political action committee working with Obama supporters. However, upon investigation, it was found that the site was actually registered to Alyssa Martin, an intern in the Obama campaign's "religious affairs" department. The domain registration has since been changed to Pastor Caldwell's name. In an earlier interview, Caldwell...

    First Lady Laura Bush said Monday that a sudden tornado nearly swept away preparations for her daughter's wedding this weekend, but despite that one "setback," the event went off without a hitch. "It was just perfect. It was exactly the way Jenna wanted it. She was absolutely beautiful," said Bush of her 26-year-old daughter's marriage Saturday to Henry Hager, 30. Around 200 family members and friends gathered for the outdoor ceremony was held at Bush's 1,600-acre (650-hectare) Prairie Chapel Ranch, far from the pomp and publicity of the White House. "We did have a little -- one setback on Friday...
