Take a Look, It’s in a Book: Our Forever President Drops His 2019 Summer Reading List

Take a Look, It’s in a Book: Our Forever President Drops His 2019 Summer Reading List

I spend a lot of time studying successful people.

I want to know where they went to school, who their mentors are, what their daily routine consists of, what they eat, hell, what brand of toilet paper do they use?

But one of the things I’m most curious about is what books they’re reading. And on Wednesday, our forever President Barack Obama was kind enough to bless his Instagram followers with...

Post-Presidential Flex: New Netflix Producers the Obamas Unsuccessfully Woo Will Smith, but May Have Sealed a Deal With Denzel

You win some, you lose some; that’s the lesson the Obamas are learning as newly minted producers for Netflix.

Paying Tribute to a 'National Treasure': How We Remember Toni Morrison

Paying Tribute to a 'National Treasure': How We Remember Toni Morrison
“At some point in life, the world’s beauty becomes enough. You don’t need to photograph, paint or even remember it. It is enough. No record of it needs to be kept and you don’t need someone to share it with or tell it to. When that happens—that letting go—you let go because you can.” —Toni Morrison, ‘Tar Baby’

If, like me, you were heartbroken upon learning of the death of literary genius Toni...

Here's What Obama Had to Say About This Weekend's Horrific Mass Shootings

Here's What Obama Had to Say About This Weekend's Horrific Mass Shootings

Once upon a time, there was a widely held—if never fully realized—belief that the country’s president ought to serve as a moral compass. If not that, at least, they ought to emphatically articulate and speak to the nation’s highest values. This is especially true in times of turmoil and tragedy.

On Monday—nearly two years after referring to white supremacists as “very fine people” following a...

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 every day 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

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...

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...

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

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

A federal appeals court panel seemed prone Tuesday to back Republican efforts to kill Obamacare, with judges questioning how much of a mandate President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law can be since Donald Trump signed a law ending any penalties for those who choose not to buy health insurance.

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

Donald Trump’s No ‘Genius’: Ex Wharton School Official Calls B.S. on Trump’s Frequent Boast

Despite his boasts to the contrary, Donald Trump’s no “super genius.” Nope, not a “genius” at all. That’s according to a man once described as the “friendly” admissions officer called upon to help get Trump into the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

As the Washington Post reports, Trump often cites his attendance at the prestigious business school as proof of his mental acuity...

Exclusive: A Leaked Email Exchange Between Kanye West And President Obama

A few weeks ago, our sources were somehow able to find an email conversation between Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill. And then, a couple weeks later, one between Meek Mill and Drake. And then, those same sources found another email conversation, but between Drake and Serena Williams. We have great sources. Our sources are the shit.

They outdid themselves this time, though, by finding a conversation...

President Obama Warns of In-fighting Among Progressives

President Obama Warns of In-fighting Among Progressives

During an Obama Foundation town hall event in Berlin Saturday, President Barack Obama warned that cancel culture could have a steep downfall for progressives. It’d be wise to stay as grounded as possible.

He told the audience, “One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives in the United States ... is a certain kind of rigidity where we say, ‘I’m sorry, this is how it’s going...

‘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...

Cory Booker Tells Don Jr.: ‘Kamala Harris Doesn't Have Shit to Prove’ About Being Black

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) would like to remind you that he, on occasion, cusses. Saturday marked such an occasion. In fact—he even put it in writing.

The Real ‘MVP’: Barack Obama Steals Drake’s Thunder at Game 2 of the NBA Finals

While Drake has made himself the talk of this year’s NBA Finals with all his trash talk on behalf of his beloved Toronto Raptors, the rapture during Sunday night’s Game 2 was about a much bigger player: Barack Obama.

The beloved forever former president garnered cheers from the Toronto crowd of “MVP! MVP!” when his image was shown on the big screen as he sat watching the game next to NBA...

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...
