    Former President Obama's attorneys say they plan to file a cease-and-desist letter over a pro-Trump group's television ad in South Carolina that attacks former Vice President Joe Biden by using a portion of Obama's book Obama is also demanding that all South Carolina television stations immediately stop running the ad from the Committee to Defend the President, which is aimed at supporting President Trump's reelection bid. The ad uses excerpts from Obama's 1995 memoir, "Dreams from My Father," in an effort to get the attention of black voters in the state. "Joe Biden promised to help our community. It was...

    Former President Barack Obama asserted that many of the world's problems can be attributed to old men refusing to relinquish their power and said women are "pretty indisputably" better than men. "Now women, I just want you to know, you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you're better than us," Mr. Obama said during a speech at a private event in Singapore, according to BBC News. The former president, who left office in January 2017, added that if women ran every nation in the world, there would be "significant improvements across the board on...
  • Obama to 2020 Democrat: Biden "really doesn't have it"

    Former President Obama reportedly told a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate that his former Vice President Joe Biden doesn't have what it takes to win the Oval Office. Obama, 58, has remained relatively quiet during the first part of the Democratic primary; however, he has met with many of the candidates privately. In one particular meeting, the former president took a dig at his own vice president, according to Politico. "With one candidate, he pointed out that during his own 2008 campaign, he had an intimate bond with the electorate, especially in Iowa, that he no longer has. Then he added,...

    Michelle Obama is revealing her new celeb-packed "voting squad" aimed at encouraging Americans to head to the polls in 2020. "Last year, we went big. Millions of new voters made their voices heard for the first time. Now the stakes are even higher," Obama says in a video released Thursday as part of her When We All Vote campaign. "That's why I've been reaching out to some friends to expand my voting squad for the year ahead," she adds in the clip, released almost exactly a year before the 2020 presidential election. The star-studded video features some big names, including...
  • Obama Endorsed Candidates Falter in Virginia, Despite Democrat Statehouse Sweep

    Former President Barack Obama may live a stone’s throw away from Virginia now, but his sway over the state’s political landscape came up short on Tuesday. Obama, who lives in the elite Washington, DC, enclave of Kalorama, has taken an interest in Virginia politics since leaving the White House. In 2017, the former president endorsed a slate of Democrat candidates running for Virginia’s top three statewide offices. The following year, Obama actively actively hit the campaign trail to see Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee and failed vice presidential candidate, reelected.
  • Obama to Lefties: Get Over Being 'Woke'

    Have you ever wondered how far left the Democratic Party has gone since 2008, let alone 2016? Well, as an example, former President Barack Obama likely would have been chased off the campaign trail had he made some recent comments of his as a 2020 Democratic primary candidate. On Tuesday, President Obama told an audience at the Obama Foundation Summit that they need to get over being "woke" and realize that simply judging people and "casting stones" does not equate to activism. "This idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically woke and all that stuff, you...

    President Trump has ratched up his claim that the Obama White House spied on his 2016 campaign, charging in a new book that it was a “treasonous” act by the former Democratic president. “What they did was treasonous, OK? It was treasonous,” he told author Doug Wead for his upcoming book, "Inside Trump's White House: The Real Story of His Presidency." “The interesting thing out of all of this is that we caught them spying on the election. They were spying on my campaign. So you know? What is that all about?” said Trump. “I have never ever said this,...

    Barack Obama will headline a fundraiser for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC) at Alex Soros’s New York City home on Monday evening. Also expected to attend the event are the group’s founder and chairman, Eric Holder, and former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe. Founded in 2016, the NDRC is a super PAC aimed at positioning Democrats favorably in the round of redistricting after the 2020 census. Earlier this year, Obama’s political advocacy group, Organizing for Action (OFA), folded itself into Holder’s group and launched a campaign called “All On The Line” aimed at promoting redistricting reform. In August, the group...

    Former US president Barack Obama was seen arriving at the Greenwich hotel in New York City before dining with Robert De Niro. The dinner came after it was confirmed last month that Obama has inked a ninety-million-dollar deal to produce a Netflix series about calls for President Donald Trump's impeachment. Actor De Niro has been a vocal critic of Trump in the past and has even stated he 'should not be president, period.' The former US leader looked smart in a black suit and sunglasses while holding a takeaway coffee as he arrived at the hotel on Monday. He was...

    44's wardrobe passes the litmus test for a third term Heads were scratched when George W. Bush rode to a second term in 2004. Despite Iraq, and despite having the linguistic capability of a GCSE creative writing class, the 43rd president clung onto another four years. That's because, allegedly, he was the man most voters would prefer to have a beer with: 57 percent of them according to a Zogby/Williams poll in the autumn of that year. And though his time in the White House is up, Barack Obama is still dressing the part of post-office beer buddy, too. At...

    Former President Barack Obama implicitly criticized President Donald Trump’s media habits in a speech on Wednesday. During a Splunk tech conference, Obama said it was helpful as president to have a diverse staff offering a wide range of advice on the issues of the day. “The other thing that is helpful is not watching TV or reading social media,” he added pointedly, according to Axios. He warned about people living in “filter bubbles” of information, made worse by social media. “That’s not healthy for a democracy and it’s not healthy between countries,” he said. “That’s how wars get started and...

    Tuesday's election will not only be a contest between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White leader Benny Gantz but also between their American pollsters. John McLaughlin stood beside Netanyahu in a video he posted on Friday explaining why Otzma Yehudit would not cross the 3.25% electoral threshold. In explaining why he was so sure, Netanyahu pointed at McLaughlin and said that he was the pollster for US president Donald Trump. Blue and White's American strategist Joel Benenson also made the news this past week, when Netanyahu accused him of being behind a false report in Politico accusing Israel...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama encouraged her followers to remember during the back-to-school season that girls around the world have limited access to attend school. Obama shared a photo from her school days as part of #WorldChairtyDay, while urging others to post #BackToSchool photos, support the Girls Opportunity Alliance and donate to its GoFundMe page. "As students here in the U.S. head back to school, let's remember that more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world don't have that opportunity," she tweeted Thursday. The Girls Opportunity Alliance is run by the Obama Foundation. They reported that out of 750...

    Thursday on CNN’s “Right Now,” Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) said President Donald Trump criticizes his predecessor former President Barack Obama because it “eats away” at Trump that Obama “added luster to the presidency.” Keilar asked, “The president referenced former President Obama several times yesterday when he had this extended Q & A session on the south lawn with reporters. He blamed him on a variety of topics. He does this a lot, but there seemed to be this uptick of it yesterday. Why do you think he does that? Connolly said, “Well, I think the contrast bothers him.

    It sure pays to be a DC grifter. The Obamas are reportedly purchasing a 29-acre, 7,000 square foot $14.85 million mansion in Martha’s Vineyard. The home is currently owned by Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck. The Martha’s Vineyard estate (pictured below) was previously listed for $22 million, but the Obamas are paying less than the current listing price according to “multiple island sources.”

    Ahead of the 2020 election, the Obamas are set to release a documentary via Netflix that has been described by Politico as anti-Trump. The movie, scheduled to be released this week, titled American Factory, focuses on the economy in the heartland of the US. The documentary, which debuts on Netflix on August 21, never mentions President Donald Trump by name—but its message is clear: Trump’s promise to reinvigorate the industrial heartland is going to take a lot more than a campaign slogan. There are no easy solutions. And if some manufacturing jobs do come back, they’re going to look nothing...
