Doctor won’t be seeing patients after calling Michelle Obama ‘monkey face’

Denver Health said they are looking at options for disciplining Herren, since the First Amendment and other state and federal laws prevent them from firing her for statements made while off-duty. In the meantime, she will not be seeing patients.

Herren makes $363,000 per year, according to the Denver Post. Her Facebook appears to have been deleted ...

Tom Ford on Dressing Melania Trump: 'She's Not Necessarily My Image'

... During an appearance Wednesday morning on The View, Tom Ford stated that he will join Sophie Theallet as one of the designers who will not be outfitting Melania. However, his reasoning differs from that of Theallet, who cited Donald’s “racism, sexism and xenophobia” as the root of her decision ...

44 years after conviction, Freedom Rider Sala Udin is pardoned by Obama

President Obama’s decision this week to issue 78 Christmas season pardons — the most of his presidency — should have special meaning for veterans of the civil rights movement.

Among the recipients was former Pittsburgh City Council member Sala Udin, a onetime Freedom Rider who was beaten up registering voters in 1960s Mississippi. But Udin had been haunted for decades by a criminal charge that grew out of his youthful activism: Driving fellow protesters home from the South, he was stopped for speeding in Kentucky and arrested after police found an unloaded shotgun and a jug of moonshine in the car ...

Obama: 'I'm confident' I would've won if I ran for president in 2016

President Barack Obama believes he would have won the 2016 presidential election had he been able to run, insisting the message of "hope and change" he campaigned on in 2008 still holds true.

"I am confident in this vision because I'm confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could've mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it," Obama told David Axelrod, his former senior adviser and current CNN Senior Political Commentator, on CNN's "The Axe Files" podcast aired on Monday ...

Nice footage!

In the Spirit of Politics,



... Guess what Fam, made it to the 2013 Inauguration, and really enjoyed it.

If you will go to 2:58 of the Video below and watch closely through 3:07, you will see me move my head back and forth, I'm to the left of a guy in Red standing on and up against the street pole with two signs on it, he's taking a snap shot and to the left of him, you'll see a lady on the shoulders of her boyfriend also taking pictures (you can see the flash of their cameras), and then me with White cap and glasses, my head went back and forth to the left and just below them... (you'll have to look quickly and play it over a couple of times to see it good).

Let me know if you find it, lol, okay?


Peace In,

Watch President Obama and Michelle Obama Greet Visitors During Parade

WHERE OBAMA RANKS AMONG ALL PRESIDENTS

... Members of the advisory team for the survey had varied reactions to Obama’s placement. “That Obama came in at number 12 his first time out is quite impressive,” Douglas Brinkley, a professor of history at Rice University, said in a statement. Edna Greene Medford, a history professor at Howard University, had a different take: “Although 12th is a respectable overall ranking, one would have thought that former President Obama’s favorable rating when he left office would have translated into a higher ranking in this presidential survey” ...
