Yesterday in Denver, a man and woman were both shot in the leg and a child and dog were grazed by bullets after the city’s 4/20 event was gunned down during Lil’ Flip’s performance.
This is more shocking and disturbing news to add to all the shocking and disturbing news coming out of the USA this week. What was supposed to be a peaceful, happy event where people could celebrate the legalization of marijuana for the first time was marred by yet another terrible act of violence. If this doesn’t make those senators who voted against Obama’s proposed gun legislation wake up and realize their mistake, then I don’t know what will.
My thoughts are with everyone who was affected by the shooting. Here’s hoping they can catch whoever was responsible for such a senseless crime.
Michelle Obama, you’ve outdone yourself again. Just when I thought you couldn’t get any cooler, you just had to go show off your awesome dance moves in a campaign that’s not only funny, but awesome as well!
As a result of her “Let’s Move” campaign that tries to solve childhood obesity, the First Lady made this excellent video with Jimmy Fallon to get kids active.
I am just enamoured by Michelle Obama. Like Beyonce, I want to be just like her. And also, those moves aren’t “mom moves.” Who says you can’t dance like that in the club?
Watch the video here:
Beyonce wowed the audience will a breathtaking version of the national anthem at Obama’s 2013 Inauguration today. Her hair was flawless; her face was flawless; her arrival with Jay-Z was flawless. Did I mention Lady B was flawless? She’s flawless. That belt gives me goosebumps every time and I’m nominating Beyonce for president.
A blonde Kelly Clarkson also performed “My Country Tis of Thee,” just before Beyonce took the stage.
Kids had an inauguration of their own this past weekend where Darren Criss, Naya Rivera, Amber Riley, Katy Perry, Usher, and others performed. Did you watch the inauguration? What did you think of her performance?

I do wonder how President Obama is going to be spending his Christmas holiday. The thought of him running excitedly to his Christmas tree, no doubt beside his cute puppy Beau, brings legitimate happy tears to my eyes. Thanks to the people of baracksdubs, it is almost certain that the President will be enjoying a whole lineup of Christmas carols like “Deck the Halls.” Maybe not, but the thought of Obama saying “fa lalalala” is enough to bring the holiday joy to everyone.
And now, here is a gif of the President dancing in his potentially amazing holiday spirit.
1. IKEA monkey wrapping paper.
2. President Obama vs. Spiderman!
3. Supposedly, this is Will Farrell at his prom.
So Bo Obama is probably the luckiest dog on the planet. Not only does he have the fluffiest, shiniest coat of hair I’ve ever seen, but he also gets to chill in the White House and get spoiled by Barrack Obama and co. Judging by this YouTube video, Bo gives back to his family by being an excellent inspector of Christmas decor.

I never thought I’d say this, but I’m getting very emotional over a couple of turkeys. This week, President Obama carried on the traditional turkey pardoning that happens around Thanksgiving. Each year, the President pardons a turkey so that they can live long and prosper. Aka not end up in our Thanksgiving feasts. This year, Obama pardoned not one but two turkeys named Cobbler and Gobbler so that they could be set free into the wilderness to live out their turkey dreams. But there is a sad part to the story. Brace yourself.
Last year, the President pardoned a
poor soul turkey named Peace. The turkey died this week because of a weekend-long illness, which meant she had to be euthanized. Despite this sad news, people can only seem to focus on the controversial aspect to the story. It seems very mysterious to some that Peace would die in the exact same week that her fellow turkeys were pardoned. They’re probably imagining a scene like this:
Whatever the case, it’s sad that one turkey died while the others got to live.
Watch the turkey pardoning here:
1. Obama’s head on a woman’s body whilst dancing on pizza. Just take that in.
The “no f*cks given” face on Obama is priceless. And now I’m really hungry after watching the spinning pizza.
Taking your laptop to the park is one thing, but a typewriter? Who are you impressing?!
3. A kind stranger and a dry car.
If a stranger ever did this for me, my soul would be warmed for an eternity.
4. Harry legs.
This is so punny it hurts my soul. So many Harrys.
5. The best air-guitaring Cat ever.
Gusto NYC found this little guy freaking out over nothing. So he gave him a guitar.

In case you missed it,
Barack Obama won the 2012 presidential election Donald Trump lost his sh*t last night as he watched the state of his sad life crumbling right before his eyes. Trump had a legitimate public meltdown on Twitter last night, using the site as a diary to address his angst over Obama winning. Spending the entire night tweeting out borderline hate mail to Obama, Trump came off as a total sore loser for the millionth time in his life.
What I want to know is this — why does Trump refuse to let whole Barack Obama thing go? I think he’s a little bit annoyed with the fact that no one, ever, would allow Trump to run the country. Eye roll.
Here are the best tweets from Trump’s public meltdown:
The mental depiction of Donald Trump leading a march to Washington sends me into literal fits of giggling. That toupee blowing in the wind…
Nope, just you.
Should we be concerned that this voting machine in Pennsylvania seems to be altering votes? This morning a man from Pennsylvania uploaded a video of a defective machine that wouldn’t allow him to select Barack Obama. Every time he tried to select the Democrat option it would highlight Mitt Romney instead.
I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney’s name and started tapping very closely together to find the ‘active areas’. From the top of Romney’s button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama’s name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein’s button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.
Beyonce and her hubby Jay-Z have always been pretty outspoken in their support for President Obama. If they weren’t famous and lived next door to you they’d probably be that annoying couple with a slew of “Progress” signs on their lawn. But alas, they’re famous so they campaign in even more AWESOME ways.
While Jay-Z was out singing about how he has “99 Problems but Mitt Ain’t One” at a Columbus campaign rally, Bee was drafting a beautiful handwritten letter for the Prez, which she published on her website. The two are already chummy with Obama as they hosted a campaign fundraiser at Jay’s 40/40 club in NYC for Obama supporters to meet he President (tickets cost $40,000 per head!).
Katy Perry — Obama
Every election there are always a few celebrities that love to endorse their chosen presidential candidate to the world, in an attempt to sway your vote. Take Katy Perry for instance, who literally wears her political leanings on her sleeve. Perry wore this “Forward” dress in support of Obama on Saturday, at a political rally in Milwaukee. “Forward” of course, is the slogan of Obama’s campaign.
Will Ferrell — Obama
Will Ferrell doesn’t necessarily care who you vote for (Obama… Obama), he just wants you to vote in this election. He’ll eat garbage, hair or underpants. He’ll even punch himself in the face. He wraps it up by encouraging one candidate in particular: ”Vote Obama! It’s a slam dunk!”
Mr. Burns — Romney
The Simpson’s resident Republican Mr. Burns put out a special message in support of Mitt Romney. Unfortunately his endorsement is probably unwanted considering he’s an antagonist on the show. Gotta love Fox ripping on Romney.
Chris Rock — Obama
Comedian Chris Rock targeted a special message to undecided voters of the caucasian variety on JimmyKimmelLive. “In times like these, you need a white president you can trust and that white president’s name is Barack Obama,” he says. The facts: for the first two thirds of his life he was known as Barry (such a white name apparently) and his parents were so white they had to wear sunglasses so they wouldn’t hurt each others eyes. Still don’t believe him? Obama is still whiter than Snooki.

In light of current events and some rather heated debates, we wanted to get Diplo’s opinion on a serious issue. Which presidential candidate would he like to get high with and on what drug? We also go further down the rabbit hole to discuss the effects of illicit substances on the creative process. Do drugs really make you a better producer or songwriter? Are musicians really expanding their creative horizons or just getting high?
1. Who sucks the most?
That’s um… really mean, but a really interesting voting system.
That’s the spirit, Mr. Wahlberg. I wonder if he knew that his placement of the pumpkins was just too perfect.
3. Scarlett Johanson faceplants (but it’s fake)
Any ScarJo fangirls can relax, this faceplant was intentional for a movie!
4. Hungry bird
Apparently a guy wanted to feed his parrot, and then found said parrot already feasting in the box. I just really hope the little guy is able to breath. He seems to be inhaling those little fruits and nuts.
There are too many amazing things about this photo. First, the complete and utter oblivion of the woman in this photo. Second, the middle child’s face. Third the backhanded slap that was the result of the complete fail. Though the pain must have been horrible, this captured a funny moment for the family.
I’m definitely having nightmares tonight. I don’t know what’s creepier — Mitt Romney’s auto-tuned voice, or the sight of these singing audience members. This beautiful ballad called “Town Hall Debate Songified” shows President Obama and Mitt Romney duking it out for presidency — but this time, with some pizazz. The geniuses of The Gregory Brothers songify the debate and basically sum up the evening in a catchy and slightly weird three minutes. I’m probably going to be humming this tune all day.
The last drinking game we participated in was the Barack Obama/ Mitt Romney sh*t show so you had to expect it would follow suite with a Paul Ryan / Joe Biden drinking game. I recommend the champions of the previous battle (last two standing) take on this round for the win.
