Michelle Obama Compares Donald Trump To A Parent Who Lets You "Eat Candy All Day"

On Thursday, Michelle Obama attended the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston where she, not surprisingly, had harsh words for President Donald Trump! Related: Barack & Michelle Obama Unveil Their Official Portraits! While speaking to Simmons President Helen Drinan, the former First Lady compared Trump's presidency to that of husband Barack Obama's using a very interesting, but accurate metaphor. According to People, the 54-year-old exclaimed: "For the eight years Barack was president, it was like having the 'good parent' at home. The responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time... And now we have the other parent. We thought it'd feel fun, maybe it feels fun for now because we can eat candy all day and stay up late, and not follow the rules."' Speaking of Barack, Michelle also mused on her husband's eight years in office: "I think about what I've learned from my husband, and I've learned watching him be a leader... And a lot of what I've learned about temperament and patience that really comes from him. I think he was born with that DNA... What I learned is that as he said, the arc of history is long, and what we're here to do is make a mark. And you do what you do because you know it's the right thing to do, not because you'll get credit for it, or because it says something about your personal legacy. You do the work because you're slowly moving the needle. There are times in history when we feel like you're going backward, but that's part of the growth." And no, Miz Obama has no plans to be commander-in-chief. Sorry y'all! "I don't want to be president, I don't think I should be president. I think I can do a lot of things, but that's not one of them... And we have to find women who understand their gifts and know where to put them to use. I know what I'm good at." Some things are not meant to be... [Image via Oscar Gonzalez/Kento Nara/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

Trump Supporters Think Obama Was Golfing During Hurricane Katrina — When He Wasn"t Even The President Then!

This is what happens when you yell about actual news being fake while spreading "alternative facts." Your followers become idiots.

Your followers become idiots. Supporters took to Twitter this week to praise Donald Trump's response to Hurricane Harvey -- you know, the one where he exploited the tragedy for political gain and just two weeks previously rescinded an executive order to improve flood protections. Sorry, did we say praise Trump? We meant raise him up by tearing down Barack Obama, obviously. Related: Trump Is Literally The Most Unpopular First-Year President EVER The Twittersphere was filled with people talking about how Obama hadn't been nearly as good a president during Hurricane Katrina because he was too busy golfing. Of course, Obama wasn't a good president during Katrina. BECAUSE HE WASN'T PRESIDENT DURING KATRINA! Obama didn't take office until 2009, nearly three and a half years after the Hurricane hit the Gulf Coast. But that didn't stop the parade of ignorance (see below): Will you please get lost. Where were you when Katrina hit, oh right, playing golf. Now you want to play president. NEVER again — Annie Kleynjans (@AnnieKleynjans) August 28, 2017 He literally told the Gov of TX "anything u want, u got it". WTF else is he supposed to do? Be on the golf course like Obama was w/katrina? — Middle America Spoke (@GoBlue1131) August 28, 2017 Obama played golf at Martha's Vinyard when Katrina hit. Now he tries everything to upstage current POTUS. Pathetic. — Shawn Vermillion (@VermillionShawn) August 28, 2017 u guys are so quick to criticize Trump. Where was Obama when Hurricane Katrina hit… o yeah, he was playing golf for 3 days!! … SAD!! — fontaineaux (@Lynchburged) August 29, 2017 He isn't playing golf, like Obama during Katrina. — CJES (@Carolyn31806792) August 29, 2017 Obama played golf for a whole week before doing anything after katrina hit. — Joy Stewart (@ColtsFanJlynRN) August 26, 2017 On this anniversary of #HurricaneKatrina making landfall let us never forget... Barack Obama wasn't president. Stay in school kiddos. pic.twitter.com/qnBxOVTbZF — Schatz 🤦🏻‍♂️ (@emjbourne) August 29, 2017 Yes I do. I was immediately fixed it but the haters pounced quickly while not denying its point which was that Obama stayed golfing. — sheila (@sheila06942158) August 29, 2017 Right. The point still stands. Even though every aspect of it was factually inaccurate. Why are y'all being haters? Are there really THAT many completely ignorant American voters?? Maybe. But some analysts believe most of these Twitter users are actually bots -- fake accounts to send the same message en masse. This kind of commenting is a more pervasive form of spreading propaganda; while the message can be easily disproven, unlike a single website it can't be easily policed. This kind of fake news spreading is believed to have slightly influenced the election, so as ridiculous as this story is, it's no joke. Photos: 10 Times Donald Trump Helped Spread Fake News! Whether Trump supporters are delusional or illusory, we have a real problem here. Oh, and BTW -- Obama, an Illinois Senator at the time, wasn't golfing either. In fact, he took time to visit with Katrina evacuees in Houston.

Michelle Obama Talks "Standard Of Ethics" & Lack Of Diversity In Politics With Shonda Rhimes

It might be her 25th anniversary with Barack Obama, but Michelle Obama spent her day on Tuesday in conversation with with Shonda Rhimes at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women.

During the girl power chat, the former FLOTUS discussed female empowerment and the "standards of ethics" used in the White House. Related: Barack Obama Admits He Shed Tears After Dropping Malia Off At Harvard The lawyer reflected on her family's time in charge -- and the differences facing our country now, joking: "For the last eight years, we had a standard of ethics, a lot of constraints. What it means to have a commander-in-chief that actually upholds the standards of the White House..." She went on to encourage women to "speak up" and demand a seat at the table, which is dominated by white men: "Don't waste your seat at the table and if you're scared to use your voice, then give up your seat to someone who can use it because we can't afford to waste that opportunity. I want women to pay attention, because this is what happens when we don't stand up. We give our seats up to those who are supposed to be there, because of the stereotypes of what power and success is supposed to be." The activist added: "I've been at so many tables and met so many fools who are imposters, but shame on us if we just let an imposter put us down. When you know what's right and you don't say anything, you see wrong happening and you sit quietly, that's what I want women to challenge to be, to speak up. We don't get to the right answers without raising our voices." On the subject of children, Michelle hasn't lost hope for our future generation: "I think they're more open in ways and less tolerant of obvious inequities. This generation will look at what is happening now in the world and say, ‘This doesn't feel right,' because they know what they were taught. They've been raised with an openness. Many kids today only know that Barack Obama was their president. They grew up only under hope and opportunity. I think now they will be less tolerant and feel some of what is happening now as what they intrinsically know is not what they were taught. The thing we cannot forget is that children know when people don't believe in them or they're not being invested in. Kids know when things are different for them, when they are being quieted or being treated fairly. It's sort of a shame on us adults when we treat kids like they don't know." As for the importance of diversity in Congress, Obama told Rimes: "Usually at the State of the Union address, what you see is this real dichotomy. On one side of the room it's a feeling of color. On one side of the room it's gray and white. On the other side of the room there's yellows and blues and greens. One side, all men, all white. On the other side, some women and people of color. Whenever I was sitting…I looked at that and thought ‘No wonder people don't trust politics. We're not even noticing what these rooms look like.'" Preach! After the inspiring chat, a recorded message from Barack popped up on the screen for him to tell his bride on their special day: "Your strength, grace, determination honesty, and the fact that you look so good doing all of this, it's remarkable. It's no wonder that as people got to know you as I got to know you, that they fell in love. It's truly the best decision I ever made to be persistent enough to ask you out on a date that you finally gave in and I hope you feel the same way." Feels!!! [Image via W.Wade/WENN.].....»»

The portrait depicts him sitting against a backdrop of green foliage. “I tried to negotiate less gray hair and Kehinde’s artistic integrity would not allow (him) to do what I asked,” Obama joked. “I tried to negotiate smaller ears. Struck out on that as well.” “I’m also thinking of all the young people, particularly girls and girls of color, who … will see an image of someone who looks like them hanging on the wall of this great American institution,” Michelle expressed during her speech. “I know the kind of impact that will have on their lives, because I was one of those girls.” The exhibit featuring the Obamas‘ new portraits will open on Wednesday (February 14).

Michelle Obama Reveals What Melania Trump Gifted Her On Inauguration Day AND Why She Dropped That Shady As Hell Look!

We now know what Melania Trump gifted Michelle Obama on Inauguration Day.

In case you forgot, last year, Mrs. Obama went viral when she gave the BEST expression after receiving a Tiffany & Co. box from Mrs. Trump just before the inauguration. For a visit with Ellen DeGeneres, which is slated to air on Thursday, Michelle revealed what was inside the box AND gave some insight into her flummoxed look. Related: The Internet Reacts To Trump's State Of The Union Address In a teaser, the 54-year-old shared that Melania had gifted her with "a lovely frame." Apparently, the whole meet and greet was awkward as hell, as the Trumps broke protocol from the moment they arrived. For starters, Donnie noticeably didn't wait or help his wife out of the SUV as they arrived at the White House. Not to mention, it isn't typical for an incoming First Lady to give the outgoing FLOTUS a present. The Chicago native explained: "Well, there's all this protocol. I mean, this is like a state visit, so they tell you that you're going to do this, they're going to stand here. Never before do you get this gift, so I'm sort of like okay." This move certainly threw Michelle off as she was trying to follow protocol for the important political event. In fact, her perplexed look came about as she frantically searched for an aide. She continued: "What am I supposed to do with this gift? And everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box. And I'm thinking do we take the picture with?" What a nightmare. Thankfully, former president Barack Obama saved the day as he took custody of the blue box: "And then my husband saved the day – see he grabbed the box and took it back inside. But everybody cleared out. No staff, no one. I was like what do you do with the box?" How awkward. As this is Michelle's first TV interview since leaving the White House, be sure to check your local listings for Obama's FULL appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won't see me for what I am because of my skin color." Adding: "Women, we endure those cuts in so many ways that we don't even notice we're cut. We are living with small tiny cuts, and we are bleeding every single day. And we're still getting up." Before we get too emotional... we'll just take this moment to say, WE MISS YOU. While Michelle said she won't pursue public office (WAH!), she will dedicate her life to helping people in other ways: "Public service and engagement will be a part of my life and my husband's life forever." The classy lawyer stayed away from getting too political, but encouraged the audience remain faithful in the people of this country despite the current President's reckless actions. She asserted: "The people in this country are universally good and kind and honest and decent. Don't be afraid of the country you live in. The folks here are good." Love you......»»

Ahead of lightning round questions (which included 44 giving his thoughts on Suits vs. The Good Wife), the ginger royal asked Obama to share his thoughts about Donald Trump's inauguration. Related: Trump Truly Believes He Saved Christmas Being a seasoned politician, the former Commander-In-Chief tactfully danced around naming the Trumpster personally, but did mention that he had some mixed feelings on January 20. Why?? Mainly, he felt somewhat uneasy about Donald's election given "all the work that was still undone" and "concerns about how the country moves forward." After the chaotic year we've had, it seems Barack's concerns were justified. Still, Obama didn't expect the peace of mind he felt once he departed the oval office. In regards to the inauguration, he noted: "But overall there was a serenity there, more than I would have expected." Good answer. Obama seemingly took another shot at Trump when he issued a warning about the toxic nature of social media. Michelle Obama's husband added: "One of the dangers of the internet is that people can have entirely different realities. They can be just cocooned in information that reinforces their current biases." Specifically, Obama criticized how the many online platforms can reinforce prejudicial views. He continued: "The question I think really has to do with how do we harness this technology in a way that allows a multiplicity of voices, allows a diversity of views, but doesn't lead to a balkanization of our society, but rather continues to promote ways of finding common ground… All of us in leadership have to find ways in which we can recreate a common space on the internet. It used to be, in the United states for example, we had three television stations and everybody watched Walter Cronkite or David Brinkley or whoever the chief anchor was. Everybody had a common set of facts, and so there might be conservatives and liberals, but people could generally agree on a baseline of reality." Well said. Can't he just come back?? *WAAAAAAH* Barack went on to address his own reputation that was criticized in the media. Although the press often described him as "dispassionate and professorial and analytical," he relayed that he's actually quite the empathetic person: "I don't think I can do my job well, or that any leader can do their job well if they don't have the capacity to feel deeply for the people they're serving. The great danger that often befalls leaders is that the people they're supposed to be serving become abstractions. If you don't understand that what you do every day has a profound impact on somebody else, then you shouldn't be there." Are you LISTENING, Donald??? Despite still being a prominent political figure in the U.S., Obama is now focusing on "training the next generation of leaders." In fact, he happily described himself as a "coach." Ummm, okay -- we'd pay to see THAT movie. Well, it appears Harry REALLY nailed this guesting editing role for BBC Radio 4, because he got some great answers out of Barack. However, we're a little irked that Prince William's bro didn't confirm whether Barack and Michelle will be invited to his wedding. Meghan Markle's man coyly dished: "I don't know about that, we haven't even put the invite or the guest list together, who knows if he's going to be invited or not... I wouldn't want to ruin that surprise." *Sigh* Regardless, be sure to listen to Harry and Barack's sit down for yourself by clicking HERE! [Image via Euan Cherry/WENN.].....»»

Gambling and Some Interesting Celebrity Breaks

Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow. Many people have had great fortune through gambling and have become celebrities from rags. However, there have been many other stories which have made rags out of celebrities, too. It’s interesting to know how addicted our role models could be to gamble that they end up earning for gambling, sacrifice, family/relationships for gambling and what-not. So, let’s not waste time and talk about some interesting celebrity stories, which you might not have known. 1. Tiger Woods Well who does not like Tiger Woods and when did Tiger need introductions anyway? But the habit of gambling by Tiger might be unexplored. As per our sources, Tiger was introduced to gambling by Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley. Gambling became an addiction soon when he started hanging out with Michael and Charles a little too much. It is rumored that Tiger has a whopping $1 million limit in most reputable casinos in Vegas. Well, now you know where Tiger’s whopping brand endorsements and high golf contract prices are ending up. Also, Tiger does not believe in playing for smaller amounts and usually takes part in high stakes games of at least $25,000. Tiger highly appreciated his kind of table set up in casinos. The Mansion at MGM Grand Las Vegas is his favorite gambling destination. He has always loved a table for himself that was surrounded by party girls. Gambling and tables surrounded by party girls were one of the prime reasons that cost Tiger a divorce from his wife. Considering the expense of divorce which cost about $750 million and a relationship, gambling was a costly choice made by the famous golfer. 2. Michael Phelps Michael Phelps is one of the greatest swimmers the world has ever known. He is a famous Olympian who has won 28 Olympic medals for his country and has brought so much glory to his country and himself. This is the highest number of Olympic medals any individual has won, which is what has brought the swimmer a peaceful retirement life in his early thirties. He is retired now and is just 32 years of age but has achieved remarkable heights which certainly will define him for a lifetime. But, one lesser known fact or habit of Michael was gambling. He had a habit of not accepting defeat and a ‘try until you win’ attitude, which earned him a lot of success at Olympics. However, this isn’t the case with gambling. If you lose, you continue to lose heavily, and it is all about luck and fortune as the results are not directly proportional to the attempts or efforts. It took loads of time for Michael to understand this and sources say that he was into gambling so much that it sometimes happened for eight straight hours. This problem persisted with Michael during 2012. He was also caught for drinking and driving near a casino in Maryland, where he was probably stressed after a straight eight hours of continuous gambling. His life had become very stressed as he wasn’t used to losing and was desperate to win no matter what it had cost. This kept pushing him to despair. Somehow with the help of his friends and close ones, he came out of the gambling habit and now is leaving a peaceful and comfortable life. 3. Tobey Maguire Tobey the on-screen Spider-Man is as cool and smart in the real life as he is in his movies. He took some tips from a poker player Daniel Negreanu and turned out to make a fortune of $10 million. As per his close friends, tips from Daniel who is a professional poker player helped him make over $10 million. He also participated in a World Series of Poker tournament, which was the time when he encountered Daniel who probably changed his fortune. But, Tobey’s gambling habits got him to a legal hurdle. He, with some of the other influential celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck, were found to be participating in underground poker games, which are considered illegal due to the unaccounted money at stake. In the year, 2011 Tobey faced a lawsuit for organizing an illegal ring of underground poker. He didn’t take a financial loss due to gambling but a lawsuit against the Spider-Man certainly harmed his popularity. But, compared to other celebrities on the list, Tobey certainly gained a lot more than he lost due to gambling! 4. Allen Iverson Allen Iverson is a very famous professional basketball champion. The basketball player has retired now but played 14 seasons in NBA tournaments. Gambling had brought him loads of trouble for which Allen who was nicknamed as ‘The Answer’ had no answers. His case was probably the reverse of Tobey. Allen managed to lose over $200 million through gambling. Yes, you read it right — $200 million — only through gambling. This famous basketball player had received several heights in his career and received contracts of a lifetime from Reebok. However, due to gambling, he had lost a great deal of his money and was in severe debt and literally had to beg his teammates to pay off such a debt. Also, during the end of his career, he lost the lifetime contract from Reebok as his gambling debts and other negative news reports started surfacing. Allen’s wife filed for divorce and a statement by Allen read that he does not even have money to buy a cheeseburger and hence, he cannot afford any alimony. Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture... Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow.

Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture wasn’t so beneficial as the super hit 2013 movie ‘Runner, Runner’ and is rumored to have been to a rehab center to come outside or quit the habit of gambling. His interest towards gambling is natural as he won the CA State Poker Championship in 2004. He is also fond of the game blackjack. We are not sure of the financials, but Ben was exposed to quite some mental pressure due to gambling. 6. Ray Romano Ray is an actor, stand-up comedian, and is known for the popular TV show, ‘Everybody Loves Raymond.’ He has also received an Emmy award for his role in the hit TV show. He has given his voice for Manny in the ‘Ice Age’ movies. The 60-year-old actor was one of the first actors who began receiving huge paychecks for TV shows. In 2009, he went on to produce a show called ‘Men of a Certain Age.’ The show had a character named ‘Joe’ who was a gambling addict and he tried his best to stay away from it as much as possible. It was a surprise to note that the character of Joe was based on Ray himself, which was something the actor later admitted. Ray still participates in several poker events, but he now knows about his limited skill sets and hopefully is only doing so for fun or as a leisure activity. He isn’t going to casinos now and prefers online poker and similar gambling in smaller amounts. As revealed in the TV series based on Ray himself, he used to seek help from different people anonymously when the gambling debt took over his financial peace. 7. Joe Francis Joe Francis the ever so controversial film producer named for many controversies and publicities. The businessman had been accused by several actresses for casting couch and inappropriate behavior. He is best known for the ‘Girls Gone Wild’ series. Wynn Hotels and others have filed a legal suit against him for unpaid gambling debts. Allegedly or surprisingly, the debt of over $2 million Wynn was given a discount of about 30 percent. 8. John McCain John is a sort of political celebrity in the United States as a senior senator in the state of Arizona. At over 80 years of age, John was a Republican candidate in the 2008 elections against Barack Obama. However, from sources and close friends, it was learned that John had at a time in his life been very addicted to gambling. A stretch of eight hours of gambling and ten hours of poker all are in shame where John had stretched for over 14-16 hours on the table. The extent to which he was attached to gambling was worrying and it certainly affected his choices during his senior senator regime. 9. Charlie Sheen Charlie Sheen has given us many entrepreneurs or trading goals by his role in the very famous movie ‘Wall Street.’ With a bucket of hit films and tremendous fan following, Charlie is one of the most controversial actors that the industry has ever known. He has recently surfaced for non-payment of taxes. He owes over $5 million in taxes which is a huge problem, especially for such a celebrity. He is also known for various other controversies that include drugs, alcohol, women, etc. Now coming to his gambling updates, he is known to be a huge gambling addict as revealed by his former spouse during his divorce case. Charlie was in contact with a bookie even while transporting his wife to the hospital while she was pregnant before the birth of his daughter. Clearly, gambling had gained the highest priority in his life over the welcoming of his own daughter and this certainly weakened his personal family ties. Also, the report exposed that Charlie in his peak lost over $200,000 every week — all thanks to gambling. This surfaced in 2006 and about eight years later, Charlie told his fans and the media that he has overcome gambling and doesn’t do it anymore. But controversies still follow him with tax evasion and non-payment and we hope he loses all of his bad habits soon. 10. Charles Barkley Another basketball player who has lost huge in gambling is Charles Barkley. After retirement, Charlies is working as an analyst in the NBA tournament. The 55-year-old also had been struggling due to gambling. Charles confessed to having lost about $30 million because of his gambling addiction. He also took counseling and then a break for two years from gambling but is a very difficult addiction, he is back to gambling now. Now he admits to gambling in casinos but in a much more controlled, monitored, and restricted manner. You never know, you might have new news story surfacing about a new gambling debt from Charles, as gambling is a galloping enterprise and you are always playing with trouble. Let’s Learn from Celebrities and Let’s Go Gambling Big celebrities have been in huge gambling troubles and it is certainly worthy to learn from their experiences and be as distant as possible from gambling activities. We have seen many stories and there are very few people who have made a fortune from gambling. Most importantly, we must make sure it never becomes a habit and addiction. Addiction to any activity can be very harmful and these celebrities have already experienced these issues. If people at such heights are not spared by a gambling addiction, it is very difficult for us to remain sheltered. So, to end the celebrity gambling league, gambling occasionally isn’t bad, but making it a source of income, or a habit or addiction should be avoided. [Photo Credit: Pixabay].....»»

Michelle Obama Says What We"re All Thinking About Donald Trump"s Social Media Use

We gave up hope Donald Trump would start acting his age and not his shoe size a long time ago… and it seems like Michelle Obama has, too! On Tuesday night during a health panel at Klick Health's MUSE New York, our former FLOTUS had a few words to say about her social media use and [...] We gave up hope Donald Trump would start acting his age and not his shoe size a long time ago... and it seems like Michelle Obama has, too! On Tuesday night during a health panel at Klick Health's MUSE New York, our former FLOTUS had a few words to say about her social media use and the dangers of Twitter. Like the icon she is, we couldn't help but notice a couple not-so-subtle jabs at her husband Barack Obama's successor. Related: Barack & Michelle Obama's Official Portraits! The advocate confessed to not being super familiar with the ins and outs of Twitter, which is why she's employed a team to make sure her messaging is on point. You listening, Donny? Michelle explained: "I still haven't figured it out because I'm old and I don't understand most of social media. I tweet, but I have a committee. I don't just tweet off the top of my head, which I don't encourage people to do — especially kids. How many kids do you know that the first thing that comes off the top of their head is the first thing they should express? You know? It's like, ‘Take a minute. Talk to your crew before you put that [out there] and then spell check and check the grammar.'" She went on to add: "I think kids do think telling it like it is and talking off the top of your head [is cool]… [but] that's never been good. We weren't raised like that. That's rude. That's what you call rude. But yes, I use social media. But I use it like a grown-up." Snap, snap! Louder for those in the back, Michelle! The fearless leader also addressed people's desire for her to run for President by saying she wanted to make room for the young people to take charge: "There's some bright young people out there doing amazing things. This is why I'm not gonna run for president because I think it's a better investment to invest in creating thousands of me's because we don't need just one. We need thousands and thousands. As an old leader, I think it's important to step out of the way and make room. If Barack and I just keep sitting in the same seats and trade seats, like, ‘Now it's your turn. Now it's my turn. Now it's Sasha's turn,' then we're not finding that new energy out there and giving them an opportunity to sit in the same seats." So wise and so missed. [Image via CBS.].....»»
