  • Michelle Obama Says Republicans Are 'All Men, All White'

    Michelle Obama ignored people like Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) when she said that Republican members of Congress are "all men, all white." And she greatly minimized them, and all the other minority and/or female members of the GOP caucus, when she said, "On the other side... some women, some people of color." But she didn't even stop there; the former first lady implied that this dynamic of right-wingers being only white men was a paradigm throughout the U.S. and throughout many industries.

    Speaking at a marketing conference on Wednesday, former first lady Michelle Obama suggested that women who voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election voted “against their own voice.” “Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice,” she said, according to video from the Inbound 2017 conference in Boston. “What does it mean for us as women that we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, ‘That guy, he’s better for me, his voice is more true to me’ … Well, to me that just says you don’t like your voice....

    It cannot be overstated how eagerly the Democrats want to take back the White House in 2020. The Democrats face many obstacles in this effort, but the greatest threat is the fierce internal divisions within the party.

    The interview Anthony Scaramucci gave to the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza seem to be the gift that keeps on giving. In newly released quotes from the interview, Scaramucci suggests that Mike Pence's new chief of staff was hired to protect the Vice President from political chaos in the Trump Administration. "Why is Nick there, bro," Scaramucci asked Lizza.

    A Los Angeles food services director who was invited to the White House by former First Lady Michelle Obama to share his tips for getting kids to eat healthy has been indicted for stealing $65,000 in public funds. David Binkle, a chef who served as the director of food services for Los Angeles Unified School District until he was fired in 2015, was charged last week with multiple counts of embezzlement, misappropriation of public funds, conflict of interest, forgery, and perjury. In 2014, Binkle traveled to the White House for a nutrition roundtable with Mrs. Obama. Binkle bragged that he...

    07.31.17 Anthony Scaramucci RESIGNS as White House Communications Director Comes less than a week after hiring JULY 31, 2017 Washington, DC (ABC/WBEN) Anthony Scaramucci resigns as White House Communications Director. This comes the same day John Kelly was sworn in as Chief of Staff. Sources tell ABC Scaramucci resigned, asking to be redeployed at the Export Import Bank as chief strategy officer. Scaramucci had not been on the job less than a week. It may be most memorable for an expletive-laden conversation with a New Yorker reporter that disparaged other members of the Trump team.

    Anthony Scaramucci's wife, Deidre Ball, has filed for divorce from the White House's new communications director, according to a new report. "Deidre has left him and has filed for divorce," a source told Page Six. "She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits' end. She has left him even though they have two children together."

    WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump’s newly appointed communications director publicly acknowledged his power struggle with the White House chief of staff and said their differences may be too wide to bridge. Anthony Scaramucci, who joined the White House last week and reports directly to the president rather than to the chief of staff, as is customary, said in a CNN interview that he and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus have been at odds “We have had differences. When I said we were brothers from the podium, that’s because we’re rough on each other,” he said, referring to a comment he made last...

    Say "disruptive start-up," and most people will think of Uber or Airbnb. Anthony Scaramucci thinks of the United States of America. The White House's newly installed communications director likened the U.S. to some of the world's most formidable corporates Wednesday, saying it's a nation intent on treading its own path. "This nation is a disruptive start-up," Scaramucci told the BBC's "Newsnight" program on Wednesday evening. "It was a group of rich guys that got together and said, you know what, we're going to break away from the other country and start our own country," Scaramucci said in Washington, referencing the...

    After sustained lobbying from the packaged food and beverage industry, the Food and Drug Administration announced Tuesday an indefinite delay in the launch of Nutrition Fact labels that were intended to help Americans eat more healthfully. The labels, championed by former First Lady Michelle Obama, were supposed to add a special line for “added sugars” and emphasize calorie content in large, bold text. They had been scheduled for rollout in July 2018, with a one-year extension for smaller manufacturers. The delay is the latest reversal of the Obama administration’s nutrition reforms under Trump. On April 27, the FDA also delayed...

    The Obamas were spotted touring the city of Siena, Tuscany on Monday but it was the former first lady who grabbed everyone’s attention with her wardrobe. Michelle Obama’s off-duty look has apparently gone off the shoulder as she bared plenty of skin in a white strappy top with high-waisted pants. Her husband opted for a more polished shirt and pants as the couple stepped out of the Duomo di Siena, the Siena Cathedral, the Daily Mail reported.

    Former first lady Michelle Obama on Friday bashed critics who complain that kids don't like the healthier food served under the school meal changes implemented during the Obama administration. "How about we not let kids completely guide everything?" she said, speaking at the annual summit on childhood obesity for the Partnership for a Healthier America. "How about we stop asking kids how they feel about their food? Kids, my kids included, if they could eat pizza and french fries every day with ice cream on top and a soda, they would think they were happy, until they got sick. "That...

    Chocolate milk is coming back on the school lunch menu. So is white bread and saltier food. Several paragraphs tucked into in a massive 1,665-page government spending bill released on Monday would relax Obama-era nutrition standards for school lunches. On page 101 of the spending bill due for congressional votes later this week, the Secretary of Agriculture is directed to allow states to grant schools exemptions so they can serve flavored, low-fat milk and bread products that are not whole grain rich. “If kids aren’t eating the food, and it’s ending up in the trash, they aren’t getting any nutrition...

    The Trump administration is discontinuing a signature girls education initiative championed by former first lady Michelle Obama, according to officials. The "Let Girls Learn" program, which she and President Barack Obama started in 2015 to facilitate educational opportunities for adolescent girls in developing countries, will cease operation immediately, according to an internal document obtained by CNN. News of the program's end came the same day President Donald Trump's agriculture secretary, Sonny Perdue, was visiting an elementary school in suburban Virginia to announce changes to another initiative spotlighted by the former first lady, healthy school lunches. Perdue was set to unveil...

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama appeared to rule out running for elected office during her first public remarks since leaving the White House. "It's all well and good until you start running, and then the knives come out." It's hard on a family, she said. "I wouldn't ask my children to do this again because when you run for higher office, it's not just you. It's your whole family." But "public service will always be in our blood", she added. Although Mrs Obama had played down her political ambitions before, while first lady, this is the first time she has...

    Michelle Obama will make a highly anticipated return to public life later this month. But first, there’s paddleboarding to do in the South Pacific. Since leaving the White House, the Obamas have appeared to be moving on just fine from their breakup with America. There was the vacation with Richard Branson, the kitesurfing challenge, the power lunch with Bono and now, an envy-inducing visit to the French Polynesian island of Mo’orea. As much as we’d look at photos of these two enjoying water sports all day, we’re also ready for them to come home already. The vacation envy is killing...

    The gates of heaven opened and Michelle Obama popped up on timelines in rare form on Sunday night. Twitter user @meagnacarta shared a photo of Obama rocking her natural hair in a low puff and gray polka dot headband, presumably wearing the purest grade of shea butter. It’s not confirmed exactly where the former first lady is or when the photo was taken ― though Barack Obama is currently writing his memoir in the French Polynesian islands ― but that didn’t stop Twitter from having a damn fit. Many social media users noted that they’ve been waiting for this natural...
