Jimmy Kimmel Asks People If They Prefer Obamacare Or The Affordable Care Act

Trevor Noah: Michelle Obamas lack of a poker face most captured the feeling Friday

Trevor Noah: Michelle Obama’s lack of a poker face ‘most captured the feeling’ Friday


“For me the person who most captured the feeling of the day was First Lady Michelle Obama,” Noah said. “It was all over her face.”

Noah showed Obama receiving a Tiffany’s box that Melania Trump brought her and the awkward expression where she didn’t know what to do with it.

“She clearly did not want” it, “Noah joked. “And look at Obama! Look at him! He’s like, ‘Uhhh, just put it anywhere, I’m moving. Just put it anywhere.'”

Noah also revealed the unfortunate gift that was inside of it. “It was just a tiny note from Melania that said, ‘HELP!'”

Redesigned White House website plugs Melania Trump's QVC jewelry line


The newly redesigned WhiteHouse.gov website may omit any mention of climate change, civil rights or LGBTQ equality, but it does throw in a plug for First Lady Melania Trump’s line of jewelry for QVC.

According to Fast Company, the First Lady’s homepage touts her modeling career, her “penchant and passion for the arts, architecture, design, fashion and beauty” and her jewelry collection for the QVC — “Quality, Value and Convenience” — home shopping network.

“Melania is also a successful entrepreneur,” reads her bio. “In April 2010, Melania Trump launched her own jewelry collection, ‘Melania™ Timepieces & Jewelry,’ on QVC.”

In a 2012 appearance on the QVC network, Mrs. Trump said, “It’s my passion for beauty and fashion to design something for women across the country that they could have fun with — something that they could afford that you could easily buy on QVC –and really special pieces that you could wear from morning until night.”

One Of President Trumps First Acts Will Cost Homeowners Millions Of Dollars

One Of President Trump’s First Acts Will Cost Homeowners Millions Of Dollars


WASHINGTON ― With one of his first orders, President Donald Trump made it more expensive for working- and middle-class Americans to buy their first homes. The move will increase costs for 750,000 to 850,000 Americans in the next year alone, according to the National Association of Realtors.

The Obama administration had said last week that the Federal Housing Administration would drop the cost of mortgage insurance it sells by almost a third to 0.60 percent. But after Trump took office, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, which oversees the FHA, told lenders the fee cut was off. The reversal of the reduction will mean that homebuyers who borrow $200,000 under the program will see their mortgage insurance fees go up by $500 a year relative to what the Obama administration had ordered, according to figures released by the FHA when the cut was announced.

The reduction was intended to help partially offset the cost of rising mortgage rates and was scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 27. The government sells the insurance in case borrowers default.

The mortgage industry’s main lobby group said when the cut was announced that it looked forward to working with the new administration on the issue. Congressional Republicans attacked the move, saying it would cut into the reserves the FHA held against defaults.

"And what is important...ESPECIALLY for THIS first lady...the GLASS is from SLOVENIA!"

Saw about two minutes of a web clip of Trump at his victory luncheon.

He and Pence were each presented with etched glass punchbowls.

Trump looked like he could give a flying fuck. Right before this he was presented with framed photos. He looked at them, smirked, shrugged his shoulders, gave a feeble "two thumbs up," and went back to his seat.

When it came time for the bowls, the breathless set-up was "And what is important...ESPECIALLY for THIS first lady...the GLASS is from SLOVENIA!"

So Jackie O...excuse me, "Melania"...gave a feeble smile for the cameras, and Trump faked more enthusiasm, and I clicked away.

It's gonna be a long fucking four years.

Trump's "It all begins today!" tweet receives a fitting response.

.@realDonaldTrump Yep. Got my calendar ready and everything.

The Trumps' WTF entrance last night to the Rolling Stones' "Heart of Stone"..read the effing LYRICS.

The man who promised to make America great again seems to prefer British musicians. During his inauguration concert, President-elect Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, walked down the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to the strains of the Rolling Stones‘ “Heart of Stone.” You can watch the clip above, even though it appears to have been taken down.

As Spin notes, it appears to be an odd choice for this type of event. Lyrics like “There’ve been so many girls that I’ve known / I’ve made so many cry and still I wonder why / Here comes the little girl / I see her walking down the street / She’s all by herself / I try and knock her off her feet” aren’t likely to assuage the fears of those who believe he will scale back women’s rights.

Back in February, the Stones said that the Trump campaign had used “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “Sympathy for the Devil” and “Brown Sugar” without their permission. In September 2015, Keith Richards called the idea of a Trump presidency “the worst nightmare.”

The Trumps walked out following a performance by the U.S. Army’s Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps. As they prepared for Trump’s appearance, two other Rolling Stones songs were broadcast over the public address system, “Let’s Spend the Night Together” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” After Trump took his seat, the next act was a trio of country singers, Richie McDonald of Lonestar, Larry Stewart of Restless Heart and Tim Rushlow of Little Texas.


There've been so many girls that I've known
I've made so many cry and still I wonder why
Here comes the little girl
I see her walking down the street
She's all by herself
I try and knock her off her feet

But, she'll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone
Oh, no, no, this heart of stone
What's different about her? I don't really know
No matter how I try I just can't make her cry
Cause she'll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone
Oh, no, no, no, this heart of stone
Don't keep on looking that some old way
If you try acting sad, you'll only make me glad
Better listen little girl
You go on walking down the street
I ain't got no love, I ain't the kind to meet

'Cause you'll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone
Oh, no, no, you'll never break this heart of stone darlin
No, no, this heart of stone
You'll never break it darlin
You won't break this heart of stone
Oh no no no
You better go
You better go home
Cause you'll, you'll never break this heart of stone

Today, Trump attends "the classified briefing that explains how he can order a nuclear attack."

By the time he is sworn in Friday, Donald Trump will have undergone a haunting rite of passage: the classified briefing given to every incoming president that explains how he can order a nuclear attack.

While neither U.S. nor Trump officials would confirm the exact time or location of Trump’s briefing, several past presidents have been briefed on the nuclear codes at the historic Blair House, on Pennsylvania Avenue near the White House, hours before their inauguration.

“It's a sobering moment. It defines the ultimate obligation that you might have,” said Andrew Card, who served as chief of staff to George W. Bush and was with Bush just before and after his first nuclear briefing in January 2001.

It is also likely sobering for millions of the Americans who heard a series of Trump rivals warn last year that the New York mogul must never gain access to America’s massive nuclear arsenal.

"How can you trust him with the nuclear codes?" President Barack Obama said at one October rally. "You can't do it."
