Natasha Rothwell's Tweets to Donald Trump Are Petty and Perfect

Natasha Rothwell's Tweets to Donald Trump Are Petty and Perfect

Natasha Rothwell does Twitter phenomenally well.

Aside from being the face of one of our favorite memes on Twitter, the Insecure star has tweeted (nearly everyday since the 2016 election) that Trump is trash. Do y’all realize the level of commitment it takes to notify 45 (and the world), on the daily that he is, in fact, hot flaming trash?! I’m impressed. If nothing else, one must respect the...

Yeah, Donald Trump's a Racist...and So Was Every Other American President

Yeah, Donald Trump's a Racist...and So Was Every Other American President

Remember that scene in literally every superhero origin story, when the superhero person did some super shit in public for the first time, and most people who witnessed it were like “Whoa!!! That was some super shit! Who knew we had super people here?” (And then a few are like “Well actually what just happened can be explained as a naturally occurring anomaly and there’s nothing super here at...

New Barack Obama Statue Includes a Surprise Dose of Black Girl Magic

I’ve never spent a day of my life in South Dakota, but artist James Van Nuys just provided compelling incentive to do so.

On Saturday, the 64-year-old sculptor revealed the latest addition to Rapid City’s City of Presidents project—a life-size sculpture of our forever President Barack Obama.

KOTA reports that the bronze sculpture, which took about two years and over 500 hours to complete, will...

Judge Restores Obama-Era Drilling Ban, Ruling Trump's Reversal Unlawful

Judge Restores Obama-Era Drilling Ban, Ruling Trump's Reversal Unlawful

Donald Trump has spent much of his time as president undercutting the presidency and character of Barack Obama.

This week, Obama’s drilling agenda scored a win against Trump’s efforts to revitalize offshore drilling.

In 2015, Obama stopped exploration in areas important to the walrus, in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas and the Hanna shoal. The next year, he withdrew nearly all of the potential...

News Networks Airing Trump’s Immigration Speech Tonight Did Not Have That Same Energy for Obama in 2014

News Networks Airing Trump’s Immigration Speech Tonight Did Not Have That Same Energy for Obama in 2014

Tuesday night, as multiple news networks are set to air Donald Trump’s address on immigration—a speech that promises to deliver a smorgasbord of lies, live and in primetime—it’s worthwhile to remember that broadcasters could just as easily choose not to air the president.

In fact, it’s a decision they have made before. As multiple outlets and pundits have noted, news networks chose in 2014 not...

Federal Appeals Court Judges Appear to Back GOP Efforts to End Obamacare

According to Reuters, the three-judge 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans heard...

John McCain Was a White American Hero

John McCain Was a White American Hero

John McCain was a white American man, whose whiteness and Americanness and maleness were his most prominent and predictable characteristics. He was also considered to be a hero. Barack Obama spoke on McCain’s “courage to put the greater good above our own.” Joe Biden remarked that McCain’s life was “proof that some truths are timeless.” There are many other tributes like this from many other...

‘I Thought I Was Meeting a Nerd:’ Michelle Obama Shares Her First Time Meeting Barack Obama

Like I’ve said before, the America in which I reside is currently single and is using this time to rediscover itself after the Obamas’ departure from the blackest administration in history.

We currently don’t have a president, so America is currently swiping right to find a love that’ll give it the treatment for which it has been yearning since the Michelle and Barack walked out of the White...

Jeanie Buss Should Let Barack Obama Run the Los Angeles Lakers

Jeanie Buss Should Let Barack Obama Run the Los Angeles Lakers

As much as it pains me to say this as a fan of Celtics basketball (please stay, Kyrie, I’m sorry about white people), the highs of Celtics fandom aren’t their highest unless the Los Angeles Lakers are better than good.

Regardless of NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s personal leanings (he looks like a Blazers fan), he’d likely appreciate a well-oiled Lakers machine, as television ratings continue...
