It's the moment, many of us can't stand especially this time of year. We're hanging out with family and someone brings up politics. And they don't just bring up politics. They say something you think is absolutely ridiculous and extreme you're sure you know which news station they've been watching and you couldn't disagree more. And as our hands begin to shake with adrenaline and our face is flushed with frustration. We fire off some harsh retort that any political pundit would be proud of, and
You may say that’s fantasy and that Michelle Obama isn’t interested. I say don’t dismiss the possibility. The political climate is such that very powerful and influential figures will appeal to her that the country needs her to step forth and serve in this “desperate time.”
7 compelling reasons
1. President Trump can convincingly defeat any of the current candidates who come across as angry and somewhat crazy. Michelle Obama would be a formidable opponent.
2. She’s the one who supposed
The Baltimore Sun’s editorial board published a scathing op-ed entitled ‘Better to have a few rats than to be one’ slamming the president for attacking the city and Rep. Elijah Cummings on Saturday, hours after Trump trashed the city as a ‘disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess’
The Baltimore Sun’s editorial board has published a stinging response to President Donald Trump‘s rant against the Maryland city, after he smeared it as a ‘disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess’.
Former President Barack Obama on Saturday said he was “proud” of his former African American administration staffers after 148 of them co-signed a Washington Post op-ed this weekend condemning President Donald Trump and his administration for “poisoning” our “democracy.”
“I’ve always been proud of what this team accomplished during my administration. But more than what we did, I’m proud of how they’re continuing to fight for an America that’s better,” Obama tweeted, alongside a link to the ar
Upping a feud with an influential black lawmaker, President Donald Trump on Sunday assailed Rep. Elijah Cummings as a “racist” over the “rodent-infested mess” in his district while White House aides sought to downplay his comments as frustration over Democrats’ unrelenting investigations.
In a series of tweets, Trump insisted that his comments Saturday referring to Cummings’ majority-black district as a disgusting mess where “no human being would want to live” were not racist. On the contrary,
During a Saturday interview on CNN, Republican political adviser Peter Wehner voiced his criticism of evangelical Christian support for President Donald Trump, telling host Michael Smerconish that the powerful voting block remains in Trump’s corner out of a misguided sense of pragmatism.
“The bottom line is that he will fight for them,” Wehner said, referring to Trump. “Not that he himself is of Christian faith. Not even he himself is a manifestation of Christian virtues, but they feel like t
Jocelyn Duran’s mother crossed the US-Mexico border 17 years ago to give birth to her in a hospital in El Paso, Texas, making the baby girl the only American citizen in her family. When she was three years old, Duran moved from her mother’s home in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, to live with her grandmother in El Paso and begin attending school there.
An American education promised opportunity, an opportunity unlike any her family members had known and one she was expected to m
Democrats are excited over the possibility of former Vice President Joe Biden considering Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams as his presidential running mate.
According to the Washington Times, Biden and Abrams met privately in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. The meeting sparked anticipation that the two might run on the same ticket.
Biden, 76, who served two terms as former President Barack Obama's closest adviser, has yet to decide if he will join an already crowded field of hopefuls vying for

A Monmouth University survey released Monday shows Clinton taking 47 percent support over Trump at 40 percent among registered voters nationally.
Among likely voters, Clinton’s lead increases to eight points, 49 to 41 over Trump.

As her husband endures a barrage of insults from GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump in the wake of the Orlando attack, first lady Michelle Obama said Tuesday the tragedy should be a moment for the country to unify.
"In tragic times like these, in this country, it’s time for us to come together, to love each other, to support each other and not tear each other down," Obama said. "So I hope that that is one of the many takeaways that we move forward with."
Obama made the remarks alongside
During a Friday campaign rally in Redding, California, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump illustrated his “tremendous” support from black voters by pointing to a black man in the crowd, exclaiming, “Look at my African-American over here!”
The real-estate mogul used the unnamed black male to relay a story about how the media allegedly mistook his black supporter “cold-clocking” a protester in a Ku Klux Klan-like hood to be a Trump anti-protester. “We had a case where we ha
Hillary Clinton is showing her confidence.
During an interview on CNN on Thursday, the Democratic presidential candidate essentially called the primary race over.
"I will be the nominee for my party," she said, bluntly. "That's already done, in effect. There's no way I won't be."
Clinton currently has 2,293 delegates, according to a delegate count by ABC News, putting her just 90 delegates shy of the number needed to clinch the nomination.
By the same count, Sanders has 1,528 delegates -- 765
About 30 black students who were standing silently at the top of the bleachers at Donald Trump’s rally here Monday night were escorted out by Secret Service agents who said the presidential candidate had requested their removal before he began speaking.
The sight of the students, who were visibly upset, being led outside by law enforcement officials created a stir at a university that was a whites-only campus until 1963.
“We didn’t plan to do anything,” said a tearful Tahjila Davis, a 19-yea
Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and a loudly ticking clock aren’t explicitly mentioned in an internal White House memo mapping out President Barack Obama’s plan for 2016. But they’re defining it.
The very calendar-conscious memo, according to White House aides, leans heavily on using the “conversations” that have defined Obama’s recent media approach to push his own agenda. But he’ll also use them to subtly, then not-so-subtly, make the case for the Democratic nominee, whom Obama and everyone e

LAS VEGAS — Hillary Rodham Clinton went to Donald Trump's doorstep Monday to mock the Republican presidential front-runner on the eve of the first Democratic presidential debate.
The appearance at a boisterous rally of the politically potent Culinary Workers Union was a win-win for Clinton, letting her signal her support for an influential union while taking aim at the Democratic party's favorite foil. The union, which represents casino and resort workers, is trying to organize hotel empl
