Cut it out, Dennis Rodman!
How many times do we have to say this? He has NO BUSINESS in foreign affairs, especially with one of the most volatile nations on the planet!
We already told you guys that Dennis plans on going back to North Korea on August 1 to reopen the political dialogue with Kim Jong-Un. Why? Because he feels like the President of the United States "can't do sh*t" when it comes to finding peace with North Korea.
Jason Collins knew that coming out as an active gay member of the NBA would be a huge deal. We're just not so sure he was expecting a phone call from the President himself!
Not only did Jason get a tweet from the First Lady, but he also got a phone call from President Obama! The Prez said he was 'impressed by his courage' and offered him his support in his big decision to go public! Now if only Obama would do something about the whole gay marriage thing…
Anyway, here's what Michelle said:
President Obama just gave an incredibly passionate speech during Boston's interfaith healing service.
Clocking in at 20 minutes, it's absolutely worth each heartfelt one. Seriously. He might be saying a lot of things that you expect someone in office to say after such a tragedy, but we truly get the feeling that our President believes every word he has to offer the city of Boston and the whole country about the events that shocked the world on Monday.
We are so glad he made the trip!
Please donate blood. Donate time. Donate money. Boston needs us all!
Four days have passed since the atrocious acts at the Boston Marathon on Monday, and it's sounding like the authorities are actually getting closer and closer to identifying the scum who did this!
We're hearing now that they're looking for TWO suspects, not just one. Images showing the two men near the marathon finish line were being circulated to state and federal law enforcement agencies — one of the men is even wearing a black backpack, like the remnants of the one that carried the pressure-cooker bomb.
Luckily for President Obama, the safeguards in place to detect people sending awful chemicals to him in the mail work pretty damn well!
Apparently letters meant for Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Mississippi. contained traces of ricin — a highly toxic, naturally occurring protein which can kill an adult with just a few grains as small as table salt — and this message:
"To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance."
The letters were contained at off-site White House and Senate mail rooms, and all of them were signed:
"I am KC and I approve this message."
SUPER scary, especially with what's been going on in Boston! Luckily, it's looking like there's no link between the two. A confirmation of the level of ricin is expected sometime today. There is no specific test for exposure and no antidote once exposed.
The good news from this is that the protection that they have in place worked!
Wow, the world really needs to stop it with this whole trying to harm others stuff. We're getting pretty tired of hearing that people think it's okay to hurt their fellow man for any reason!

Shortly after addressing a grieving and shell-shocked nation, President Barack Obama revealed his plans to visit Boston and honor the victims of yesterday's horrific marathon bombings.
He will attend interfaith services on Thursday and speak at an event "dedicated to those who were gravely wounded or killed in Monday’s bombing."
Earlier our Commander-in-Chief confirmed our worst suspicions — yesterday's bombings were indeed acts of terror. The government plans to coordinate its efforts and
