Barack Obama Tweeted His Own Biden-Obama Meme For The Former VP's Birthday

So much so that Obama even joked about the special relationship he shares with Joe before awarding Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

And it was just in time for the former Vice President’s birthday.

Twitter absolutely loved the post and gave Biden some Happy Birthday wishes of their own.

Others were just stunned that Obama created a meme.

For some, the tweet was a sign of true friendship, a bond that stands the test of time.

Twitter Rejects Trump's Claim That Obama Didn't Call Families Of Fallen Soldiers

During a conference in the Rose Garden on Monday, Donald Trump was asked a question about four members of the U.S. Special Forces who died during an ambush in Niger almost two weeks ago. Trump had not yet made a statement about their deaths, nor contacted their families, as far as anyone knew. In response, Trump threw a pretty wild accusation in the direction of President Obama.

“If you look at President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn’t make calls. A lot of them didn’t make calls. I like to call when it’s appropriate, when I think I am able to do it,” he said.

Not only is Trump besmirching the name of Obama, he is also throwing every other president before him under the bus with this outrageous claim, one that was quickly refuted by the people who have the most authority—the families of fallen soldiers.

People quickly rushed to show the receipts, and let everyone know how they were comforted in their grief by the commander of chiefs of the past:

Even former White House photographer Pete Souza showed up to share some moments when Obama and his wife were there for grieving families:

Now, where is Trump’s proof?

Obama Chooses Artist For Coolest Official Presidential Portrait Ever

Barack Obama has chosen artist Kehinde Wiley to paint his presidential portrait for the Smithsonian, and it will probably end up being the coolest portrait of a president there (okay, Kennedy’s is pretty cool, too). Wiley, who is the first black artist to paint a presidential portrait for the Smithsonian, paints black men and women in the style of classical paintings, often in front of a millefleur tableau. 

And because the paintings are based on works from Renaissance and Baroque eras, many of Wiley’s subjects are seen on horseback. Which might be a cool as hell choice for Wiley to make with Obama’s portrait, even if it would result in some Republican eye-rolls.

Though Wiley often paints ordinary men and women, he isn’t a stranger to making portraits of famous people. Previously he’s painted the Notorious B.I.G., LL Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, Ice T, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, and Michael Jackson.

Michelle Obama also picked a black painter, Baltimore artist Amy Sherald, with her own striking contemporary style. Both paintings will be unveiled next year, according to Jezebel.

“The Portrait Gallery is absolutely delighted that Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald have agreed to create the official portraits of our former president and first lady,” said Kim Sajet, director of the National Portrait Gallery, in a statement to The Los Angeles Times. “Both have achieved enormous success as artists, but even more, they make art that reflects the power and potential of portraiture in the 21st century.”

Definitely worth a trip to the museum, right?

Alex Jones Shares Video ‘Proving' Michelle Obama 'Is A Man'—And Chelsea Clinton Shot Back

Conservative commentator Alex Jones is at it again. 

This time he shared a video that he claims is “final proof that  Michelle Obama is a man.” Oh, and he implied that Joan Rivers was killed for revealing this information.

Riiiiight.

Jones, who has previously suggested that the Sandy Hook massacre was a  hoax and who has cast doubt on 9/11, has long promoted the theory that Michelle Obama was born a man but said the ‘new viral video’ proved that he did not invent the theory himself.

We won’t dignify the video with an embed here, but here’s a taste of Jones’s words on the matter: 

“Analyzing the photographs, Michelle appears to have a very large penis in her pants. Her shoulders are wide, her face is very, very, masculine.”

“She looks like a tranny and so you ask yourself, are the children a beard?” 

DailyMail

Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter to slam Jones and praise the former First Lady.

Chelsea also made sure to mention she didn’t visit Jones’s InfoWars site.

Others chimed in, supporting Chelsea and Michelle.

And she will continue to fight the good fight. Bravo Chelsea! Thank you for persisting!

Barack Obama Is Completely Destroying President Trump On Twitter

If he isn’t tweeting “official policy,” he’s mocking his political adversaries or crying “fake news,” and eliciting hundreds of thousands of likes in the process.

But if he thought he had the title of “Most Popular Twitter Celebrity” all wrapped up, he just got a rude awakening.

Former President Barack Obama responded to the Charlottesville protest with a tweet that quickly went viral,  amassing more likes than any tweet in history:

Apparently, Obama has six of the ten most-liked tweets of all time. Trump isn’t even on the list. Other top tweeters include Ariana Grande, Ellen DeGeneres, Linkin Park, and Hillary Clinton.

Obama is also way ahead of Trump in terms of followers, with nearly 94 million, compared to about 36 million for Trump.

In a breakdown of followers, according to TwitterAudit.com, a vast majority of Trump’s followers are bots:

Man's New American Citizenship “Welcome Packet” Still Includes A Letter From President Obama

The Trump administration has built a reputation of stupidity and self incrimination.

You’d think that the White House would have changed its own records to reflect the current President, but according to Twitter user Aisha  Sultan, that is most definitely not the case.

However, it brought up some really bitter feelings for Twitter.

The letter itself is a standardized communication. However, it very explicitly reads “Sincerely, Barack Obama.”

Oh gosh PLEASE let these last few months be a giant episode of Punk’d.

It’s truly ominous, in an administration that has been outspoken against immigration from the campaign trail, that the letters of welcome for new citizens have not been updated.

Hopefully it is not a sign of things to come.

Trump Just Admitted Russia Interfered In The Election, And Then Blamed Obama For It

Trump’s Criticism May Mean He’s Finally Admitting The Truth

Telling on someone, but indicting yourself in the process, is a mistake many children make. Just ask any child who told an adult they were goofing off in class in hopes their classmate gets in trouble, when they just openly admitted to it as well. President Trump now knows what that feels like.

On Friday, the Washington Post published a story saying how the Obama administration was given a report stating Russia was interfering in the 2016 Presidential election and how they handled it. Then, they went so far as to say President Vladmir Putin was personally involved in the cyber attack to disrupt the outcome of the U.S. presidential race.

Shortly after, President Donald had something to say about the story.

Trump tweeted out his thoughts on the information given in the article, appearing outraged the Obama administration did nothing to prevent the hacking.

He then followed up the Friday tweeting by tweeting more on Saturday.

By criticizing and calling out Obama’s supposed lack of action, it seemed Trump finally admitted Russia did meddle in the 2016 election.

For months before, and after, his inauguration, Trump referred to any act of Russian interference as ‘fake news.’ The closest he’s gotten to  admitting what intelligence officials have been saying for months has been “other countries and other people” may have hacked the U.S. 

The problem is Trump now admitting the election that put him in the White House may not have been a true win. Even Sean Spicer said Friday that the President stands by his statements that Russia “probably” hacked the DNC.

Obama May Have Just Revealed The Gender Of Beyoncé's Twins And Twitter Is Losing It

The Songwriters Hall of Fame inducted Jay-Z in a ceremony on Thursday. Jay-Z is the first rapper to every be included in the Hall of Fame, and they got a pretty big name to record a video message to him. No, not his wife. President Barack Obama sent in a message to the Carter family with a congratulations and few other important details embedded in it:

After saying his general congratulations, Obama drew some comparisons between himself and Jay-Z:

“I like to think Mr. Carter and I understand each other,” Obama continued. “Nobody who met us as younger men would have expected us to be where we are today. We know what it’s like not to have a father around, we know what it’s like not to come from much, and to know people who didn’t get the same breaks that we did. So we try to prop open those doors of opportunity so that it’s a little easier for those who come up behind us to succeed as well.”

He also added that they were both “fools for our daughters,” adding, “But he’s gonna have me beat once those two twins show up.” 

Wait, what? Did Obama just reveal the sex of Beyoncé’s twins? Twitter seems to think so:

Though at least one person took the less literal and more sexist view that the only way Jay-Z could beat Obama was by having boys:

It’s hard to say if Obama was revealing anything, on purpose or by accident. Though because the video is taped, you’d think someone would have caught that phrasing when they reviewed it. President Obama goes on to that say that he and Jay-Z both have “wives that are significantly more popular than we are,” so he was obviously clear-headed during filming. He also added what may be a low-key comment on Donald Trump, as well:

“Like all of you, I am a fan: I’ve been listening to Jay since I was a young and hungry state senator,” Obama continued. “I sampled his lyrics to close his speech at Selma, and tweeted a reference to ‘My First Song’ when I was putting the finishing touches on my final State of the Union address. I had to ‘brush some dirt off my shoulders’ during a campaign. So I’m pretty sure I’m still the only president to listen to Jay Z’s music in the Oval Office. That may change at some point but I’m pretty sure that’s true now.”

According toUSA Today, Jay-Z was himself absent from the ceremony, which is feeding the rumors that Beyoncé is in labor now or has recently given birth. He gave a thank you on twitter, though it’s not his main form of communication, as you can see:

What a beautiful relationship!

Barack Obama And The Dos Equis Man Are Now Friends, And People Love It

Jonathan Goldsmith, aka “The World’s Most Interesting Man” from the Dos Equis commercials, just got even more interesting.

In his memoir, Stay Interesting: I Don’t Always Tell Stories About My Life, But When I Do They’re True and Amazing, the actor gives his reader a glimpse into his world. One that includes a friendship with former president Barack Obama. 

In an excerpt from the memoir published by Politico, Goldsmith talks about his struggles early on as an actor in Hollywood, and how he eventually left Tinseltown in his 50s, even starting a  multimillion-dollar marketing company.

When that company  eventually went under, Goldsmith, now in his late 60s, headed back to Hollywood, eventually scoring the commercial role that would come to define him.

Despite run-ins with Michael Jordan, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jennifer Lawrence, his unlikely friendship with Obama was a “dream,” according to Goldsmith. The two met in Vermont during Obama’s reelection campaign, when Goldsmith was part of a welcoming committee. He writes:
 

“He was just starting his second run for the presidency, and we were invited to be in a greeting line of about 200 people. Barbara, my agent who is now my wife, was right when she predicted he would recognize me. Obama is a huge sports fan, especially the NBA. At the time, the Dos Equis commercials were all over ESPN. Our 10-second photo-op turned into a several-minute conversation.”

That friendship blossomed when Goldsmith was invited to be a surprise guest at Obama’s 50th birthday celebration. The two talked for a long time, even getting to a first-name basis with one another. And thus, a friendship was forged.

Obama Surprises Biden With Medal of Freedom And Confirms Joebama 'Bromance'

Regardless of whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat, you have to admit that the memes that came out of Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s bromance are pretty amazing.

After Obama-Biden memes blew up, it got people a bit cynical, saying that the heights of their love for each other were a bit exaggerated and that the internet was fueling the narrative of how good of friends they were just for the sake of memes.

And I would have been fine with that. When I look at the realities of life I tend to get a bit depressed, so I was totally cool with their bromance being overly celebrated, even if it wasn’t entirely the real deal.

But it turns out that magic does exist, ladies and gentleman, because even Obama threw a surprise send-off for Biden.

And what’s more is that he used the word “Bromance” to describe their relationship, joking that “This also gives the internet one last chance to talk about our bromance.”

Obama called Biden the “best Vice President” the US has ever had, and awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Which an emotional Joe accepted graciously. But of course, Biden being Biden, he had to lay some humor down with a classic Barack anecdote.

He concluded by telling Barack he has his back forever, because that’s what bromances are for.
