Trump: “Michelle Obama Loved” Harvey Weinstein

According to the Washington Examiner:

President Trump attacked Democrats for their close relationships with rapist Harvey Weinstein hours after he was convicted of two sex crimes, claiming that Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama “loved” the disgraced producer. 

“I will say the people who liked him were the Democrats. Michelle Obama loved him — loved him. Hillary Clinton loved him, and he gave tremendous money to the Democrats,” he said on Tuesday in New Delhi, India, as he asked whether Democrats would return the money.

A New York jury on Monday convicted the former movie mogul of raping one woman in 2013 and sexually assaulting another in 2006. He will face up to 29 years in prison when he is sentenced.

Joe Biden Says He’d Like Michelle Obama to be the Vice President

Joe Biden said Tuesday that former first lady Michelle Obama would make a great vice president, and that he would consider appointing Barack Obama to the Supreme Court. 

He didn’t exactly say he wanted her to be his vice president, but the vice president.

Which, putting the pandering aside, begs the question, In what sense is Michelle Obama the least bit qualified to be president or vice president?

Biden called her “incredibly qualified.” No, she’s not.

But she’d make a good Senate or gubernatorial candidate if she decided to run. And then, who knows?

Even ambition-filled Hillary made a pit stop in the Senate before attempting to ride into the Oval Office.

Biden’s exchange with a voter, according to the Washington Examiner:

“Would you consider appointing Obama for the Supreme Court?” a man in the crowd asked the former vice president on Tuesday. 

“Yeah, I would, and I don’t think he’d do it. He’d be a great Supreme Court justice,” Biden, 77, responded. 

“Second question is: Which Obama?” the man said as the room reacted with awes and applause. 

“Well, I sure would like Michelle to be the vice president,” Biden said and laughed. “They’re both incredibly qualified people, I mean, and they’re such decent, honorable people.” 

Michelle Obama to White People: “Y’all Were Running From Us”

Are the Obamas living in a black section of Washington? Or one with lots of immigrants?

No. They’re living in a castle in Kalorama, one of the whitest, richest areas of a majority black city.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Michelle Obama spoke out against “white flight” in a recent interview, saying she experienced it as a kid and that it remains a problem. 

“As families like ours — upstanding families like ours who were doing everything we were supposed to do and better — as we moved in, white folks moved out because they were afraid of what our families represented,” the former first lady said Tuesday at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago. 

“I want to remind white folks that y’all were running from us … This family, with all the values that you read about, you were running from us. And you’re still running because we’re no different than the immigrant families that are moving in,” she continued. “The families that are coming from other places to try to do better. But, because we can so easily wash over who we really were — because of the color of our skin, because of the texture of our hair — that’s what divides countries, artificial things.” 

Obama, 55, said she felt a “sense of injustice” and understood from a young age that white people were fleeing her neighborhood.

Obamas Set to Buy $15M Martha’s Vineyard Estate

According to TMZ:

Barack and Michelle Obama may soon become Kennedy adjacent because we’ve learned they’re in escrow for a remarkable, mega-expensive, Martha’s Vineyard estate.

Multiple island sources tell us the Obamas are in escrow for the estate owned by Boston Celtics owner, Wyc Grousbeck. The former Prez and First Lady have been renting the house this summer and loved it so much, we’ve learned they made an offer. The property is listed at $14,850,000. Our sources say they’re paying less, but we don’t know how much.

The estate — incredible. It’s 29 beachfront acres. The main residence is just shy of 6,900 square feet. It has 7 bedrooms, so Sasha and Malia have a place to crash, along with several of their friends. It has the obligatory pool, an outdoor fireplace, a chef’s kitchen, vaulted ceilings and 2 guest wings. It has incredible views, especially while soaking in the second-floor balcony Jacuzzi.

As Barack Obama once said, “at a certain point, you’ve made enough money.”

But, you know, not yet.

Video || Ivanka Trump Visits the Ivory Coast

Ivanka Trump went to Africa to promote women’s rights and women in business. Of course, no one reported it.

One of the things I noticed about this White House video of her trip is that it is so much less about Ivanka and so much more about the people of the Ivory Coast, who are featured in the clip.

This would never happen in Obamaworld. Contrast what you see above with a similar White House-produced video about a Michelle Obama visit to South Africa.

Just about every frame includes you-know-who.

Trump to Change Michelle Obama’s Non-Tasty School Lunch Rules

The Trump administration is rolling back Michelle Obama-driven school lunch rules that were designed to give kids healthier meals but were in fact filling garbage pails with school lunches.

“If kids are not eating what is being served, they are not benefiting, and food is being wasted,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a statement last week. “We all have the same goals in mind — the health and development of our young people. USDA trusts our local operators to serve healthy meals that meet local preferences and build bright futures with good nutrition.”

Which means, less whole grains and more chocolate milk. 

I don’t like kids drinking chocolate milk. Kids are too fat, frankly, and Michelle was onto something. But if they’re not eating their school lunches, their health is going to suffer too. 

Michelle Obama’s Book “Becoming” is the Best-Seller of 2018

Becoming . . .  rich.

The book has sold more than 2 million copies, and it’s still ranked #1 on Amazon.

The Obamas are of course doing much more than selling books, making appearances and signing a multimillion-dollar deal with Netflix. They are competing with the Clintons to see who can make the most money off of being president. And they might win.

Michelle Obama Will “Never Forgive” Trump for Birtherism

Michelle Obama writes in her new book, “becoming,” that she will never forgive President Trump for promoting the “birther” theory that suggested Barack Obama was born in Kenya and therefore not able to be president.

“The whole [birther] thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed. But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks,” she writes, according to a quote from the Washington Post. “What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.”

Mrs. Obama also reveals that she had a miscarriage, that she had troulbe getting pregnant, and that her daughters were conceived through in vitro fertilization.

Don’t Be Fooled: The Obamas “Went Low” Plenty of Times

There’s a lot of chatter right now about how former Attorney General Eric Holder, who may be running for president, broke Michelle Obama’s “rule,” that, “When they go low, we go high.” That’s “our motto,” she proclaimed during her 2012 DNC convention speech. Holder invoked it the other day, riffing, “When they go low, we… Continue Reading

Michelle Obama to Play a Huge Role in the 2018 Campaign

Former First Lady Michelle Obama will take a high-profile role in the 2018 campaign, but in order to keep herself from getting to deep in the muck she’ll seek to elect Democrats under the guise of an ostensibly nonpartisan group which launches Thursday and that is being called “When We All Vote.” According to Politico… Continue Reading

Netflix Chief: “It’s Not the Obama Network”

Netflix is belatedly concerned about losing conservative viewers with it’s multiyear, multi-project deal with Barack and Michelle Obamas to produce content. According to the Hollywood Reporter: At an industry event Tuesday, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said the network’s production deal with Barack and Michelle Obama, announced last week, does not represent an organizational shift to… Continue Reading
