#ObamaWatch: Barack Obama Kite Boarding Is The Best Thing You Will See All Week!

Barack Obama definitely enjoyed his vacation on his buddy Richard Branson’s private island in the Caribbean. We know, we know we got a lot of issues going on here in the United States, but you have to admit that seeing Barack kite-boarding is pretty damn cool.


Richard Branson shared video of the former President (still our president in our heads) and himself battling out on the waves. Apparently the two had a bet going and you know when it comes to a challenge our President never backs down.


That’s my president!

We are just happy to see that Barack Obama enjoyed himself and completely stress free! Word is that the Obama’s are back stateside, we can’t wait for them to roll up their sleeves and help us fend of President Nacho for 4 years!

Sheryl Lee Ralph On Jennifer Holliday’s Pre-Inauguration Decision: “Not All Money Is Good Money” [Video]

WICKED‘s new broadway star and first African-American to play “Madame Morrible” played by the iconic Sheryl Lee Ralph stopped by the Wendy Williams Show to discuss the Inauguration, her longtime Dreamgirls castmate Jennifer Holliday, her husband Senator Vincent Hughes, meeting Michelle Obama for the first time and more.

Williams asked if Sheryl actually called Jennifer to speak with her about the decision:

You wanna know something, Jennifer is the kind of woman she makes her own choices for herself and that’s the way she likes to keep it but the only thing that matters for me when it comes to this topic is that at the end she SANGED THE RIGHT SONG!..Sheryl then proceeds to sing: “And I am telling you!” she changes the lyrics at the end shouting out the LGBT Community. 

When Wendy also asked: “would you would’ve performed?”…Sheryl said:

Not all money is good money. That’s me. That’s me and that’s Senator Vicent Hughes wife speaking but some folks — sometimes people need a check. I don’t know what the circumstance was but that’s what I would’ve said. 

Check out the entire interview above.

Sheryl Lee Ralph can currently be seen playing Madame Morrible in Broadway’s “WICKED” at the Gershwin Theatre in New York City.



Watch Michelle Obama Surprise Unsuspecting Guest On Her Final Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon Appearance!

The Obama’s farewell tour continued last night with our First Lady, Michelle Obama making her final appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. In one segment, Flotus surprised unsuspecting guests while they faced a portrait of her thanking her and telling her what her eight years in office meant to them.


Flotus surprised each person one-by-one by coming from behind a curtain and giving the very emotional guest a very heartfelt hug, yes we are jealous. It was such a touching and beautiful moment as the guest had no idea that she was actually hearing their words in person. The first guest whose name is Alicia revealed to Obama:

“This was not what I was expecting,” Alicia said. “I was eating pizza bites yesterday in my bed and now I’m meeting the first lady.”


So dope!

Also on the show Mrs.Obama got the opportunity to thank her husband as well by penning a thank you note to the 44th President. In the letter she wrote: “Thank you Barack, for proving you’re not a lame duck, but my very own silver fox”. Awwwwwww if those aren’t relationship goals we don’t know what is.

We also got an explanation as to why Sasha was not present at her dad’s farewell address and of course it was a typical mom explanation.

Lord we are going to miss the Obama’s :-(.

The Donald Trump Curse Starts: The Obama’s Dog Bites White House Guest

The Obama‘s are leaving the White House and the First Black Family’s dog wants no parts of strangers visiting the home. One of the Portuguese Water Dogs named Sunny was approached by an 18-year-old family friend and was bitten in the face as she attempted to kiss the dog.

TMZ reports:

We’re told the incident occurred Monday when the 18-year-old was visiting the White House. Sources connected to the girl tell us she went to pet and kiss Sunny, and the dog bit her on the face.

Sunny — a female Portuguese Water Dog — left a nasty gash under the girl’s eye. We’re told the Obamas’ family physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, checked her out and decided she needed stitches.

She’s gonna be okay, but we’re told she’ll likely have a small scar … which upset her. 

The bite is out of character for the breed, which typically is not aggressive in family situations. The Obamas have 2 Portuguese Water Dogs — 8-year-old Bo has the title,”First Dog.”

We reached out to the White House. No comment on the incident.

We’re glad she’s ok but let’s this be a lesson that you just can’t approach a dog when they’re not familiar with you.

But We Blame Trump at this point. Just sayin…

On The Gram: It’s A Love Fest As The Country Says Farewell To President Barack Obama Following His Farewell Address!

If you’re on Instagram right now scrolling through your timeline chances are VERY HIGH it’s consists 95% of pictures of Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Barack and Michelle or the entire first family. Now if that’s the case it’s totally understandable because the 44th President delivered his final address to the nation as Commander-in-Chief.


We know, it’s so sad, we don’t want him to go, we don’t want to deal with President-Elect Nacho Dorito (Donald Trump) but unfortunately there’s that thing called a two-term limit. During his final address, Barack delivered a message of hope just as he did 8-years-ago when he first won the Presidency. In spite of the looming cloud of uncertainty that Trump’s Presidency brings, Barack cut through the thick clouds of fear and doubt with his beaming smile and his strong sense of confidence in people which never wavered  throughout his 8 years.

The one time Obama got truly emotional is when he thanked his beautiful wife Michelle Obama and his two daughters Sasha and Malia for being with him every step of the way during his Presidency.


Now when we normally do an On The Gram post here it’s usually for some comedic purpose, but for Barack it’s all about love. As you can imagine the country took to social media to express their love and gratitude to The Obama’s  for representing the country for 8-years with nothing but grace and perfection and staying SCANDAL FREE! Celebs took to Twitter to extend their sincere thanks and love to the 44th President immediately following his emotional speech.

the outpouring of love for The Obamas was tremendous and of course the appreciation for Barack didn’t end there as Instagram was flooded with nothing but love for our first African-American President and his family. Hit the gallery below to see more love sent the Obama’s way, and of course we gotta say THANK YOU Obama as well you will be missed.

Watch Hillary Clinton and Ken Bone Dance-Off in Hilarious Spoof of The Presidential Debate on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’

You can always count on Ellen to bring the humor to something as serious as this year’s Presidential Election. Hillary Clinton who is currently cruising to victory in light of recent allegations against her opponent and making history becoming our first woman President stopped by The Ellen Show.

She spoke about the latest debate, her infamous shimmy, Michelle Obama’s amazing speech, her wish for her upcoming 69th birthday, the current situation going on withTrump and of course Donald’s weird stalking behavior during the last debate.

What took the cake though was a video Ellen played for Hillary featuring her and overnight social media darling (strangely still undecided) Ken Bone engaged in a dance-off. The hilarious part is Hillary is still answering the debate question while she is hitting her dance moves. Peep Hillary and Ken facing off in the parody video above and an additional clip from the episode below:

You can catch Hillary Clinton on The Ellen Show today on NBC at 3:00 PM!
