    "It is true that if you had pictures of everything I had done when I was in high school, I probably wouldn't have been president of the United States," Obama said in a speech in Chicago. "So, I would advise all of you to be a little more circumspect about your selfies, and what you take pictures of," he said. "Just a suggestion."
  • Lindsey Graham predicts Trump loss: ‘Reality is reality’

    Sen. Lindsey Graham has predicted a massive loss for Donald Trump in November, saying the GOP presidential nominee has alienated voters to the point of no return. “Reality is reality,” the South Carolina Republican said Tuesday on WABC Radio’s Imus in the Morning, BuzzFeed first reported. “Mitt Romney got 27% of the Hispanic vote. By 2050, a majority of the country will be African-American, Hispanic, Asian, and others, and we’re losing demographically. We’ve gone from 44% with Bush to 27% with Romney, and I don’t think Donald Trump’s gonna get 20%,” Mr. Graham said. “The problems we’ve had with young...

    He continues to battle a nicotine addiction and has spent a small fortune keeping his records private – including his medical history. Though viewed as the picture of health in 2008, Barack Obama appeared more gaunt the following year and since then weight fluctuations became more numerous and more dramatic as a chameleon-like cycle of a man who shows up looking drastically different than he did just weeks prior. Rumors of heavy makeup for public appearances to mask “skin discoloration issues” have persisted for a number of years, as has the ongoing speculation of what was the true nature of...
  • Here's How Obama Reacted When He Walked In On An Aide Who Was With Someone In Bed

    President Barack Obama has a reputation for being level-headed -- something that he's apparently able to do even under the most, er, flustering of circumstances. According to a copy of a memoir by former Obama aide Reggie Love that was obtained by The Washington Post, Obama walked in on Love while a college friend was spending the night in his hotel room during a 2007 campaign stop. Here's Love's description of the incident, via the Post:

    During his time as a personal aide, Reggie Love developed a very personal bond with Barack Obama. The 'bodyman' stuck with him during the 2008 presidential campaign and during his first years in the White House. But there is perhaps one moment where their working relationship became slightly awkward. Love recounts how he was staying in a hotel during the presidential campaign when he had a female friend from college to stay - and the then Senator Obama barged in.

    Former ‘body man’ Reggie Love will be penning a book on his experience working alongside President Barack Obama. “Power Forward: My Presidential Education,” will be released Feb. 3 by Simon & Schuster and will follow Love’s five years working for Obama, including his time as the president’s personal aide. It is described by the publisher as “a professional coming of age story like no other.”Expect plenty of basketball talk too, as Love, who began working for then-Sen. Obama in 2006 and left the White House in 2011, will also draw on his time under Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, where...

  • Conservatives DUMP Senator Larry Craig, for sticking fingers under a bathroom stall wall.

    I read the transcript of the Larry Graig interview with the Minnesota police. I don't like what I'm hearing from other conservatives. The liberals see a cheap Senate seat and you want to give it to them because a guy moved two fingers under the stall wall in an airport bathroom. If they had the guy on tape asking for sex, paying for sex, or photographed in the act, or any other physical proof, then I would say that looks very very bad and he should go. But that is not the case. This is very lame, and those of...
