    WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors on Wednesday charged two men they say were posing as federal agents, giving free apartments and other gifts to U.S. Secret Service agents, including one who worked on the first lady’s security detail. The two men – Arian Taherzadeh, 40, and Haider Ali, 36 – were taken into custody as more than a dozen FBI agents charged into a luxury apartment building in Southeast Washington on Wednesday evening.

    The Washington Examiner has broken what is, so far, the best story of the year: It turns out that Jill Biden has her own “walk-up” music. That is, whenever she makes an official appearance, this music is played for her, just as Hail to the Chief is played when the president appears. Someone within the Marine Corps band wrote it, although there is some dispute as to whether the White House requested such music or the Marine Corps band members spontaneously felt that Jill needed that special song. Becket Adams broke the story: The Marine Corps band was instructed last...

The cropped Chanel jacket, featuring silver buttons emblazoned with the brand’s iconic double C logo, was paired with black suede Bottega Veneta gloves, snakeskin Christian Louboutin stilettos, a rare black crocodile Hermès Birkin bag, and Mrs....

    Over the last couple of weeks, I have had time to reflect on many things personal to me. One of the most honorable and important roles I have ever undertaken has been serving you, the American people, as the First Lady of this country. When I thought about where I wanted to put my time and efforts, there was no hesitation. BE BEST has one simple purpose—to help children. It serves to provide the tools children need to prepare them for their futures. We all know that more often than not, information that could be helpful to children is lost...

    The worst thing one of Mary Jordan’s claimed 100 sources had to say about Melania Trump is that she’s 'stubborn.' No arguments there. There are no major bombshells in Mary Jordan’s new biography of Melania Trump, “The Art of Her Deal.” Jordan merely reaffirms what we’ve always known about the First Lady—she’s a cool head in an unsteady world, and the ultimate poster girl for soft power. The worst thing one of Jordan’s 100 sources had to say about Trump is that she’s “stubborn.” No arguments there. Like an alabaster Greek statue, Melania stays strong and unflappably elegant as her...

    WASHINGTON -- After all the lectures from the superior folks on the left about the, well, "deplorable" tone of the Trump base, it has come to this: Tuesday morning, middle and high school students booed first lady Melania Trump as she spoke at the B'More Youth Summit on Opioid Awareness. Rather than use the cringe-inducing incident as a teachable moment about civility, which is a focus of the first lady's "Be Best" anti-drug, anti-bullying campaign, progressive pundits applauded the teens' nasty tantrum. April Ryan of Urban Radio tweeted, "Your husband can't disrespect #Baltimore & its late, great leader Rep....

    First Lady Melania Trump channeled her inner British Royal on Wednesday as she sat with Queen Elizabeth II for a ceremony commemorating D-Day. For the day in Portsmouth, England, Mrs. Trump paid homage to the famed London-based Irish milliner Philip Treacy — the man behind most of all of the British Royal Family’s hats and fascinators — wearing one of his creations from his Spring/Summer 2019 collection. Think of this hat as the little, British cousin to her iconic custom-made, American-esque Hervé Pierre hat that she donned just a couple of days ago to meet the Queen.

    Every year on the Ringside Politics program, we award our “Turkey” of the year during Thanksgiving and our “Champion” of the year in late December. This year, the “winner” of our turkey award was House Speaker Paul Ryan, a fitting choice for such a failed leader. However, our “Champion” award was a more difficult selection. During the past year, many fine people distinguished themselves in a positive way Finally, after input from our great listening audience, our decision was clear. For many reasons, including her grace and style under unrelenting criticism and pressure, First Lady Melania Trump was chosen...

    Melania Trump’s spokeswoman penned an op-ed Monday slamming the media for focusing on “trivial and superficial” matters, like the first lady’s marriage and fashion choices, despite her continued work benefiting children and military families. Stephanie Grisham, Mrs. Trump’s deputy chief of staff for communications, took issue with an opinion piece by CNN contributor Kate Anderson Brower, who accused the first lady of throwing herself a “pity party” for lamenting how she’s covered by the media during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity last week. “This condescending opinion, apparently written in response to a single answer Mrs. Trump gave in...

    MANILA, Philippines (AP) - A Philippine court found former first lady Imelda Marcos guilty of graft and ordered her arrest Friday in a rare conviction among many corruption cases that she plans to appeal to avoid jail and losing her seat in Congress. The special anti-graft Sandiganbayan court sentenced Marcos, 89, to serve 6 to 11 years in prison for each of the seven counts of violating an anti-corruption law when she illegally funneled about $200 million to Swiss foundations in the 1970s as Metropolitan Manila governor. Neither Marcos nor anyone representing her attended Friday’s court hearing. Marcos said in...

    She is viewed highly among Republicans and Independents, with a rating of 83 percent and 55 percent, respectively. However, among Democrats, only 28 percent view her favorably, with 56 percent of Democrats viewing her as unfavorably. . . The first lady stirred up controversy in June when she wore a jacket with the words “I Don’t Care, Do U?” on her way to visit a children’s detention center in Texas. “It was for the people, and for the left-wing media who are criticizing me, and I want to show them that I don’t care,”
