In an unprecedented move, 50 Girl Scouts descended upon the White House lawn on Tuesday, shocking America and making camp for the night.
No, this isn't some sort of coup — it's actually just the first time anyone's ever spent the night on the South Lawn!
Michelle kicked off the event with an adorable introduction, saying:
"I really just wanted to formally welcome you to the White House. There it is, it's right there.
You're making history, this is something you can tell you kids and your grand kids, do you understand the impact of this day?"
Naturally, the 10 and 11-year-olds didn't quite understand how significant their sleepover actually was, but at least Michelle seemed to have fun!
Ch-ch-check out how the historic day unfolded (below)!!!
Step aside, Donald Trump! There's another tough-talking GOP candidate in town now!
On Tuesday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for president!
While the Republican party already has over a dozen candidates running, the New Jersey native has promised to be aggressive in his upcoming campaign. He told voters:
"You're going to get what I think whether you like it or not, or whether it makes you cringe every once in a while or not. I am now ready to fight for the people of the United States of America."
Though the 52-year-old's resume is impressive, he has also faced backlash from former aides who created traffic jams at a bridge to get back against a Democratic mayor who chose not to endorse Christie's re-election!
While Christie denied he had anything to do with the bridge closing, this raised the awareness that that those who work with the governor will do anything to win!
During his campaign launch, the presidential hopeful called out the "bickering leaders" from both parties — though highlighted Barack Obama's "weak and feckless foreign policy" and referred to fellow candidate Hillary Clinton the president's "second mate."
In the gymnasium of his old high school, the presidential hopeful declared:
Nobody is taking Donald Trump's presidency seriously, but we were all hoping for at least a little consistency from the tough talker… LOLz, yeah right!
On Friday, reporters asked The Donald to release his long-form birth certificate and passport records now that he's running for president — and he adamantly refused!
That wouldn't be too big of a deal, except for the fact that The Donald hammered president Barack Obama for years about releasing his birth certificate, trying to prove that Obama wasn't born in America.
Back in 2012, The Guardian asked Michael Cohen of the Trump Organization to release The Donald's birth certificate as a show of good faith regarding Obama. Back then Cohen responded:
What a touching, powerful moment.
President Barack Obama delivered a eulogy at State Senator and Reverend Clementa Pinckney's funeral on Friday afternoon, one of a heartbreaking nine funerals the city of Charleston must endure after the attack in a church last week.
The President's eulogy was heartfelt, discussing Reverend Pinckney's life and faith:
The Supreme Court overturned the country's ban on same sex marriage Friday morning, and the country is rejoicing!
But not everybody was down with the cause. Perhaps some of y'all have seen things like this on Twitter:
First it was higher taxes, then it was Obamacare, now it's gay marriage??!? That's it, I'M MOVING TO CANADA!

There's just one problem with that… same sex marriage has been legal in Canada for a decade!
Yep, with the passing of the Civil Marriage Act on July 20, 2005, Canada made same sex marriage legal nationwide ten years before the U.S.!
In fact, gay marriage is legal in a lot of countries — so if you're planning to leave America because of the same sex marriage ruling, you should probably avoid all these countries, too:
AH-mazing news — same-sex marriage is now a reality for all Americans! Yay!!!
President Barack Obama was supportive in his speech, of course — but the Supreme Court's vote was CLOSE, with same-sex marriage narrowly winning after a 5-4 ruling.
Now, we are learning more about the dissenting opinion against same-sex marriage, led by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.
In his 29-page dissent, Roberts allowed for activists to celebrate the decision, but cautioned that in his opinion, it wasn't a decision that had anything to do with the Constitution:
The United States Supreme Court ruled today in favor of same sex marriage, making it the law of the land in all fifty states.
Now, President Barack Obama has spoken on the landmark decision, sharing his thoughts on the importance of equality for LGBT couples, as well as congratulating activists and allies who have fought so long for marriage equality.
President Obama recognized the Court's importance in the decision, but also acknowledged the silent heroes involved in the long, important process:
