Though red Republican blood runs through his veins — he followed in the footsteps of President Obama and slow-jammed the news. We can't tell if this is an appeal for the youth vote or southern voters?!

Though the fluent Spanish he pulled out of his back pocket was pretty impressive!

Well played, Jeb.

We wonder when Donald will schedule his appearance on Jimmy Fallon's show? Hopefully soon!

Be sure to ch-ch-check out Jeb's full slow-jam news report (above)!

A new poll shows fictional characters are beating real people in approval ratings!

Does this mean people would rather see a mass murderer in office than a Republican?

In the latest Washington Post-ABC News survey, Harry Potter villain Voldemort had a higher approval rating than many of the Republican presidential candidates.

The Dark Lord bested Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum, Chris Christie, and Ted Cruz. Trailing the pack? None other than Donald Trump.

But He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named didn't come out on top.

President Barack Obama — as well as hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders were all able to triumph against the evil wizard — but believe it or not, a real person didn't claim the top spots.

Leading the poll was Star Wars villain Darth Vader and "the shark from Jaws". But who does everyone believe to be the best pick to run our great nation?

The Terminator, obvs.

A Bomb Threat Forces The Secret Service To Evacuate The White House Briefing Room

| Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaViolenceScary!News

This seems like a plot line straight out of Scandal!

Press Secretary Josh Earnest had a terrifying moment on Tuesday when a bomb threat was reported in the briefing right in the middle of his press address.

The Secret Service were quick to usher Josh and all of the reporters out of the briefing room, but not before the feed showing the statement was cut.

President Barack Obama was also at the White House at the time of the incident, but was far enough away from the room that he was not at harm.

Viewers on Twitter were a little annoyed that they didn't get to see just how the Secret Service operated their evacuation… but it would kind of be beside the point if the Secret Service didn't keep their ish, ya know, secret.

Everything's already back to normal, but we're just glad that everyone is safe!

President Barack Obama Delivers A Touching Speech At Beau Biden's Funeral

| Filed under: Barack ObamaSad SadJoe Biden

no title

It's a very sad day for Beau Biden's friends and loved ones.

On Saturday, President Barack Obama and MANY more paid their respects to the late son of Vice President Joe Biden, who tragically passed away from brain cancer a week ago.

In Barack's eulogy, he made mention of Beau's stellar public service record(Biden served as Delaware's attorney general) and how he cared so much for those in need.

Watch the moving speech in full (below):

So touching and heartbreaking. It sounds like the father of two was an amazing man AND politician.

In addition to Obama's tribute, Chris Martin also played a moving song in honor of Beau after hearing that Coldplay was his favorite band.

Our thoughts go out to Beau's family.

John Cusack Thinks President Obama Is 'Just As Bad Or Worse' Than George W. Bush! Read His Words HERE!

| Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaJohn Cusack

John Cusack is not happy with President Obama.

John Cusack is not thrilled with President Barack Obama's foreign policy.

During a recent interview the actor expressed his disappointment with how the 44th president of the United States has handled certain key issues.

He also maintained that Obama's not so different from his predecessor George W. Bush:

"Well, Obama has certainly extended and hardened the cement on a lot of Bush's post-9/11 Terror Inc. policies, so he's very similar to Bush in every way that way. His domestic policy is a bit different, but when you talk about drones, the American Empire, the NSA, civil liberties, attacks on journalism and whistleblowers, he's as bad or worse than Bush.

He hasn't started as many wars, but he's extended the ones we had, and I don't even think Dick Cheney or Richard Nixon would say the president has the right to unilaterally decide whom he can kill around the world. On Tuesdays, the president can just decide whom he wants to kill, and you know, since 9/11 there are magic words like "terror," and if you use magic words, you can justify any power grab you want."

Yes, but who's the better painter???

Let's hope Obama takes up painting after his presidency so we can compare!

Do YOU agree with John's opinion of the Commander-in-Chief???
