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

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...

Here’s How Much Trump’s Golf Trips Have Cost Taxpayers

Here’s How Much Trump’s Golf Trips Have Cost Taxpayers

President Trump is a thot for golf.

In fact, his entire presidency has been Trump playing golf and then doing presidential shit when he’s not on the course. The funniest part of Trump’s love for golf is that he not only sucks at it but he’s a notorious cheat and he consistently bashed forever President Obama for playing golf when he was in office.

“I love golf, but if I were in the White...

Betsy DeVos to Pull Back Civil Rights Protections for Black Students Under the Guise of 'Safety'

Betsy DeVos continues her methodical dismantling of civil rights protections for vulnerable students, this time setting her sights on Obama-era guidelines put in place to protect black students from being disproportionately disciplined at school.

As the Washington Post reports, a school safety commission formed shortly after February’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla., is expected to...

Beyoncé and Michelle Obama Are Drunk in Love

Beyoncé and Michelle Obama Are Drunk in Love

Beyoncé and Michelle Obama have been out in these streets hailing each other’s praises and it’s honestly the kind of content that makes paying my internet/phone bill worthwhile.

Our FOREVER First Lady and the King of Music have been sharing sentiments that will warm the coldest hearts amongst us.

Mrs. Obama has recently received a well-deserved honor by being named one of TIME100’s most...

New Robe, Who Dis? Trump’s Tax Appeal Is Going to a Court Headed By ... Wait for It ... Merrick Garland

New Robe, Who Dis? Trump’s Tax Appeal Is Going to a Court Headed By ... Wait for It ... Merrick Garland

Remember Merrick Garland?

He was just a regular judge who was about to gain judicial superpowers and lifetime job security when then-President Obama nominated him to the Supreme Court in 2016 after Antonin Scalia died. But Senate Republicans, led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch “Turtle Neck” McConnell (R-Ky.), stalled the nomination.

Well, maybe it’s because God has a sense of humor or maybe...

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

‘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...

Dammit, Joe! Biden Possibly Running For White House in 2020. He Needs to Sit His Old Ass Down, Too

Former Vice President Joe Biden is looking like he’s going to add his name to the already crowded Democratic primary field and announce that he’s running for the party’s nomination and the chance to take down President Trump.

“I’m giving it a shot,” Biden reportedly said during a phone call with a House Democratic lawmaker who snitched to The Hill.

Former President Obama’s BFF was allegedly...

Forget Elizabeth Warren’s DNA Test. Never Forget That Melania and Donald Trump Are Birthers

Before we get too deeply involved in the silly story about Elizabeth Warren having to prove through DNA testing that she is, indeed, part Native American , let’s not forget something too much of the mainstream media has allowed to drift out of everyday conversation. The man who kept demeaning Warren by calling her “Pocahontas” is the man who also tried to demean the nation’s first black...

Now That Obama Boulevard is Officially a Thing, Here's How Los Angeles Plans to Celebrate

Now That Obama Boulevard is Officially a Thing, Here's How Los Angeles Plans to Celebrate

On the 2018 Beyoncé-infused “Black Effect,” Jay-Z nonchalantly professed “I’m good on every MLK,” keenly aware that civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. has roads sprinkled throughout the country carrying his namesake. But on the flip side, our forever president Barack Obama—whose own iconic status wasn’t solidified until January 20, 2009—is understandably running a bit behind.

There’s...

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...

Trump Trying to Explain Why His Job Numbers Aren't Better Than Obama's: A Story Told in Gifs

Trump Trying to Explain Why His Job Numbers Aren't Better Than Obama's: A Story Told in Gifs

Donald Trump is a liar.

He’s not even a skilled liar. He’s just a regular old run-of-the-mill liar you could find in any mall in America. He’s the Marshalls of liars. He’s the intramural, coed, every person has to play five minutes basketball league of liars.

So when Trump claims he’s got the best job numbers the world has ever seen, he’s lying.

The good thing about this is that every now and...

President Obama: ‘Michelle Will Never Run for Office’

About that Trip to Cuba ... Trump Delivers Another Blow to Obama Policy, Announces Limits on Travel to the Island

In what can only be considered a continuous effort by the Donald Trump administration to undo former president (and best president to ever do it) Barack Obama’s legacy, National Security Adviser John Bolton has declared that Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua are the three wheels on the tricycle of socialism while announcing new sanctions against the Latin American countries.

RIP, Obamacare, We Hardly Knew Ye

RIP, Obamacare, We Hardly Knew Ye

Obamacare has officially moved into hospice. I think the best thing we can all do now is try to make President Barack Obama's life work, and arguably the most controversial and effective piece of legislation during his two-term presidency, as comfortable as possible, because the end is near.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, often referred to by its nickname Obamacare, was a...

Trump Keeps Lying on Obama's Good Name, Claims the Former President Separated Migrant Families at the Border

According to President Trump, former President Barack Obama is a Kenyan operative who used a fake birth certificate to run for office. Once elected, he took babies from migrant families attempting to cross the border into the United States and Trump is the one who stopped it.

The latter is a claim that Trump has made several times when pushed on the child-separation policy that was enacted...

Finding My Voice: With Her New Memoir, Valerie Jarrett Shares the Wisdom of Life's Many Chapters

On a sunny Saturday morning in one of Chicago’s trendiest neighborhoods (Fulton Market in the West Loop), passersby may have assumed the long line of mostly millennial-aged women winding out of one of the area’s newly refurbished warehouses were awaiting entrance to the latest brunch destination—or perhaps a sample sale at an exclusive boutique. But the hundreds of women (and a few men and...
