    Administration officials are remaining tight-lipped on a private party featuring Prince and Stevie Wonder at the White House over the weekend. During Monday's daily briefing, reporters drilled White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest for details on the star-studded event, which was not included in the President's public schedule, but was documented by guests on social media. "The President and First Lady did hold a private party at the White House over the weekend, but given the private nature of that event I don't have a lot of details to discuss from here," Earnest said.

    In subsequent questioning, Earnest said that "the president and first lady paid for the event," although he did not detail the exact cost. The concert audience included prominent business leaders, celebrities, senior administration officials and fashion heavyweights close to the Obamas, according to The New York Post's Page Six. Among them were American Express chairman Ken Chenault, D.C. philanthropist David Rubenstein, fashion designer Naeem Khan and ABC stars Connie Britton and Tracee Ellis Ross. The Wall Street Journal's Carol Lee, who will assume the presidency of the White House Correspondents Association next month, questioned why the administration decided to treat...

    President Barack Obama stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday. The late-night host welcomed Obama for his first in-person visit to the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage with a humorous introduction: "The first Kenyan-born Muslim socialist ever elected to run this country." In Jimmy Kimmel style, the duo partook in a reading of mean tweets, to which Obama replied, "I have to say though, those weren´t that mean... You should see what the Senate says about me." Obama admitted that he does not "physically tweet in general" because he "generally" has "some other stuff to do." Kimmel and Obama also addressed

    Washington (CNN)The President of the United States is willing to do just about anything to promote his signature health care law, and that includes wielding a selfie stick and dropping a "YOLO, man," on camera. In a renewed effort to get Americans to sign up for healthcare.gov before the Sunday deadline, President Barack Obama brought out his selfie stick in a video for BuzzFeed Motion Pictures. The video published on Thursday features Obama and BuzzFeed's Andrew Ilnyckyj doing "things everybody does but doesn't talk about."

    President Barack Obama will give his State of the Union address Tuesday night, and the American way is to drink as you watch. It'll take Obama about an hour to review the year and announce programs like free community college, required sick leave and cheaper housing, so several websites have put together State of the Union drinking games. Here's a guide to a few of the best from around the Web. Remember to drink responsibly -- and make sure it's domestic. The basic: This drinking game gives you levels of intoxication to choose from. It suggests drinking every time Obama...

    Just saw a local Miami tv station using video from the government web site with an "interview" of Obama, where he spews some crap about how his goal is to outline for the nation how he is going to make sure things are fair, now that we have "made it through the crisis". I nearly spit my coffee out. We are not out of a crisis. My point is that these kind of videos are NOT a proper use for news....and I expect that if a REPUBLICAN president put out this type of "interview", the media would ignore it....on the...

    President Obama’s aides have drafted a team of Internet-savvy staff members to produce a series of videos, digital op-eds, Facebook and Twitter posts, and six-second animated GIFs to capture a larger audience than the mainstream media’s shrinking number of viewers and readers. They are essential tools in selling the president’s message during his last two years in office, White House officials say. In recent announcements on college affordability, immigration and net neutrality, the president has relied on social media platforms including YouTube, Facebook, Medium, Vine, LinkedIn and Twitter. Last Tuesday, Mr. Obama previewed his plan for broadband access in a...

    On Monday, ABC’s Good Morning America provided First Lady Michelle Obama’s school lunch program, entitled the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, with some free publicity. Co-host George Stephanopoulos touted how “new federal guidelines pushed by the First Lady have cafeterias serving up healthier foods. And a new study finds those lunches may be better than the ones parents pack for their kids.”The ABC co-host then turned to contributor Claire Shipman, wife of former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, to further promote the study’s findings: School cafeteria lunches. For years, they've been the butt of jokes. But this morning a new...

    Gwyneth Paltrow has won numerous awards for her acting, but speaking apparently came with some difficulty Thursday with President Barack Obama standing beside her. "You're so handsome that I can't speak properly," the actress, singer and food writer gushed after introducing Obama to several hundred supporters seated on white fold-out chairs in the lush backyard of her home in the movie star haven of Brentwood, a neighborhood in Los Angeles. In a not-so-subtle reference to her "conscious uncoupling" earlier this year from husband Chris Martin, Paltrow said it was a "profound honor" to have Obama in the home she shares...

    In his prime-time speech to the nation on the eve of the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, President Obama vowed to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State insurgency in Iraq and Syria with airstrikes and 475 U.S. boots on the ground – but he also made a particular point of declaring that the Islamic State terrorists “are not Islamic.” “Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic,” Obama said, speaking from the state floor of the White House residence. “No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been...
