President Barack Obama and his well-heeled family — first lady Michelle Obama and their daughters Malia and Sasha — attended Sunday’s Easter service at the 19th Street Baptist Church, where he also visited the Sunday before his first inauguration in 2009.
The very Reverend Dr. Derrick Harkins oversaw the service — as he did in 2009.
“Let me just say, to the first family, to the President of the United States, Barack Obama, to the first lady of the United States, and Miss Malia and Sasha, we welcome you,” Harkins said, according to a pool reporter at the service.
Social media allows curious fans the opportunity to, interact with, and to question every aspect of a celebrity’s life. Social media users are wondering why reality TV stars Tip “T.I.” Harris and his lovely wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris are vcationing separately with their children from previous relationships.
The White House plans to ban visitor photos with President Barack Obama, thanks to Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz. Obama invited Ortiz and his Red Sox teammates to the White House last week to celebrate their World Series win.
Obama obliged Ortiz’s request to pose for a ‘Selfie’ taken with Ortiz’s self phone. Such selfies are normally uploaded to social media websites including Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
But Ortiz’s photo op with the president was actually part of a pre-arranged deal between Ortiz and Samsung to promote the cell phone company’s phones.
NBC’s Saturday Night Live parodied the Obama administration’s
desperate attempts to sign up healthy young people for ObamaCare in advance of Monday’s deadline. SNL’s Obama was urged to wear Pharrell’s goofy hat; pose for a social media photo op with Kim Kardashian and Batkid; dance with the Pope; and kiss Justin Bieber (played by a female actress) on the lips.
Watch the hilarious video after the break.
The first lady Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha, 12, and Malia, 15, wrapped up their very expensive trip to China (taxpayers will foot the bill for Mrs. Obama’s pricey $8,400 per night accommodations at the Westin hotel).
While Mrs. Obama seems to have charmed her way into the hearts of English speaking Chinese citizens, it is the sulky, petulant Sasha who is getting most of the attention from the national media.
First Lady Michelle Obama has been tasked with pressuring President Obama‘s loyal base to support his lame duck health care reform by purchasing insurance through their state exchanges.
At the end of a new ad featuring the mothers of superstars Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, and Adam Levine, Michelle says, “We nag you because we love you.”
President Obama’s approval ratings hit a low of 41% this week. His lowest approval rating ever was 38% in 2011. But not to be deterred by the public’s growing distrust of him, Obama appeared on an Internet show called Funny or Die hosted by actor/comedian Zach Galifinakis (“Hangover”).
Wearing his usual deadpan expression, Obama cracked jokes about his lame duck health care reform, ObamaCare. Apparently, the president thinks 4 million Americans losing their health insurance is funny.
