Not in ‘My House’ — President Obama Shuts White House Heckler Down

president obama gif

*Cool is as cool does. And Mr. President, you do cool well.

I’ll bet the next heckler that decides to let loose on your watch will think twice. We’re wondering sir, if after your second term is up, you might consider a career in stand-up comedy.

Could happen. But probably won’t.

But this was certainly a good audition. Allow us to reiterate. As you acknowledged LGBT Pride Month at the White House, right there in the middle of your speech, some clown decided to exercise the volume of her vocal chords using your name.

Yes, your security could certainly have handled the incident; and quietly escorted the heckler that interrupted your speech out–most likely without further incident. But no, sir, you wouldn’t allow it to go down like that. You, sir, wanted that heckler to know one thing.

“No, no, no, no. Listen, you’re in my house.” Continue reading

President Obama: Will You Accept This Cow? Kenyan Wants to Marry Malia Obama

So you say you want to marry Malia...Let me think about it for a sec...
Hmm…So you say you want to marry Malia…Let me think about it for a sec…

*Call the paramedics!

An attorney from Kenya plans to make the President and First lady an offer in exchange for the hand of their eldest daughter in marriage.

I wouldn’t be surprised if just the mention of the word “marriage” in connection with their 16 year old daughter, Malia, sent President Barack Obama and First Lady, Michelle, into a series of convulsions.

While I am sure the First Family is more than aware that age is just a number in the African culture, let’s face it: We are not in Africa. And age to Americans, when talking marriage, is the only number we see if its 16.

But Kenyan attorney Felix Kiprono from Nairobi, is very serious about his offer. And is drafting a letter on it “as we speak.” Continue reading

Video: White Legislator Claims Paternity to Black Teen’s Young Son, Will Still Run for Senate

Antebellum, former delegate and young AA woman with his child
AIN’T THAT A KICK IN THE HEAD: Teen Myrna Pride told the media her parents used to have photos ‘like this’ Antebellum picture with her and Virginia legislator, Joe Morrissey, with their baby.

*Well, excuse my French.

But if this ain’t a mutha-fuh-ya, I don’t know what is.

The short end of the story is, Caucasian attorney and former Virginia House delegate Joe Morrissey, 57, who was once disbarred and even lost his freedom for the crime of “contributing to the delinquency of a minor,” called the media together for a press conference where he admitted to being the baby-daddy of 19-year-old Myrna Pride‘s 2-1/2-month-old son, Chase.

Pride sat by Morrissey’s side at the event, and chimed in on at least two occasions of the (edited) clip (scroll down to see it). Once, when she stated their sexual relationship did not happen before she was of legal age; and then again as she supported his claim that “age is not a factor in their ‘relationship.'”

Which makes believing their claims that he waited until she was of age, a real stretch of the imagination.

By the latest calculations, Morrissey now has four children by four different women.

He appeared nervous during the press conference; especially when a reporter asked him if he planned on marrying Pride. Continue reading

*Investigators showed up at the home of Michigan State Senator Virgil Smith and arrested him.

Smith, 36, was taken to jail from his home in Detroit on Sunday, Fox 2 reports. They say the senator was outside, completely naked, firing his gun, allegedly at his ex-wife, Anita Thomas, around 1 o’clock in the morning.

Thomas was not injured, but her Mercedes Benz was. Continue reading

Live Mic Accidentally Records Mayor in Bathroom Taking a Leak (Video)

*Yes Mayor Rachael Jonrowe, we’re not mad at you. It would be hard to compose myself too if I heard the man who was sitting next to me only seconds ago, in such a vulnerable position.

But as they say, stuff happens.

Apparently, during a Texas city council meeting, Mayor Dale Ross made a restroom run. Thing is, he forgot to turn his mic off and, well, let’s just put it this way…everyone knew it was him; where he was, and what he was doing.

Big time!

We can see the response of the mayor (pro tem) in the photo above, but all we can do at this point is wonder about the response of The Honorable Ross, once he realized his mic was still on.

I mean no disrespect sir, but was it while you were washing your hands? Drying them? What? Continue reading

ThisNthat Quickbits: Marilyn Mosby, Baltimore State Atty, Speaks! (Watch)

*”You have to at some point change the culture of what’s happening in the police department, and the way that you do that is by holding them accountable.” —Marilyn Mosby, Baltimore State Attorney

In the video below, Baltimore State Attorney, Marilyn Mosby, who was voted into office in January of 2015, speaks to Chris Hayes on “All In With Chris Hayes” on her new found “celebrity” in the wake of the Baltimore Riots and her decision to hold accountable the six officers who were responsible for the death of Baltimore resident Freddie Gray – who suffered from a fatal spinal chord injury after being forcibly arrested and transported in the back of a police van, unsecured.

As the youngest prosecutor of a major city, Mosby comes from five generations of law enforcement professionals. What I believe people will admire most about her is her no-nonsense approach to justice for those in and out of uniform; her ability to remain poised and thoughtful even while in the eyes of an unrelenting media; and the fact that even at her young age (she’s 35) she is not swayed by what appears to be the infatuation of the public.

Watch: Rapper Waka Flocka Flame Announces His Run for the Presidency (Contest for the ‘Best Campaign Slogan’)

Waka Flocka Flame in the White House? Your call, people.
Waka Flocka Flame in the White House? Your call, people.

*What on earth would we call him? President Waka Flocka Flame? President Waka Flame? Mr. Waka Flocka…Oh god.

But here you have it: Rapper Waka Flocka Flame announced on Monday, probably in between puffs, that he is running for president.

And I blame president Obama.

He announced his intention for the presidency on video and Rolling Stone released it on Monday, April 20, a date associated with the notorious marijuana smokers undercover code: 420 .

His first strategic move. Not bad!

“I’m very pleased to announce today, on 4/20, the best day of the year, I will be running for president,” Flame said.

And his first command as president will be …wait for it…to legalize marijuana.

No surprise there, seeing as the man once put out a want ad for a personal blunt roller whose salary would be $50,000. Continue reading
