    A progressive leftist known for his blatant cronyism, corruption and scandal hit the shores of the Potomac this week; nobody noticed. It takes a little man in a little coat to make BHO look presidential by comparison Butt buy a new dress, throw a big party, and everybody sits up and takes notice. If I may say so, I think it’s a lovely dress; designed by Carolina Herrera and fashioned from luxurious fabric in black and liberty blue. Although I’ll grant you, it does show better “standing” than “mooving.” Still, do you see what proper fit and sleeves can do...

      Off we go! Our going-to-dinner entourage and bomb squad Yes, I saw the headline too: “Date night for the Obamas: President and First Lady enjoy romantic Mexican meal together as they prepare to spend Valentines Day apart.” A ghost sighting outside the Oyamel restaurant Saturday night Okay, we did have dinner on Saturday at Oyamel, Jose Andres downscale Mexican restaurant that specializes in tacos and guacamole that cost twice as much as they do at a real Mexican restaurant. Butt let me be clear: this was most assuredly NOT a “romantic” dinner. What part of “downscale” do you not...

    Paris (AFP) - French President Francois Hollande on Saturday told AFP he has split with his longstanding partner Valerie Trierweiler after his affair with an actress nearly 20 years his junior. The announcement came after a day of rumours in the French media that Hollande would formally announce the rupture on Saturday, on the eve of a visit by Trierweiler to India for charity work. Saying he was speaking as a private individual and not as head of state as the matter concerned his private life, Hollande told AFP over the phone: "I wish to make it known that I...

He said he would clarify whether Valerie Trierweiler was still first lady before a February trip to the US. He plans to travel to Washington on 11 February. The news conference was a long-planned event aimed at unveiling policies to help...

  • The Rottweiler bares her teeth: Awkward Michelle and French First Lady Valerie Trierweiler

    The U.S. and French First Ladies couldn't hide their awkwardness as they posed for photos ahead of a youth centre visit in Chicago. Michelle Obama wrapped with one arm around the waist of Valerie Trierweiler and with the other she gripped the French First Lady's hand tightly. Towering above Miss Trierweiler, Mrs Obama was very much in control. She didn't loosen her grip as she turned to embrace the French President's partner, placing her other hand on Miss Trierweiler's back to pull her closer.
  • Valérie Trierweiler may revolutionise role of France's first lady

    If François Hollande has styled himself as Mr Normal – recently photographed buying fruit compote in a Paris supermarket and saying he would continue to do so after he's elected "if the fridge is empty" – his partner, Valérie Trierweiler, could revolutionise the unofficial role of France's first lady. If, as she has promised, the 46-year-old journalist keeps her contract for the magazine Paris Match and continues to work, it would be the first time a president's partner has held down a regular job and salary. Her role as a journalist would make this juggling act even more tricky. For...
