With racial tensions at an all time high, and Ferguson, Missouri slowly turning into a police state, President Barack Obama is here to save the day!

He's in a unique position for this situation: protestors need not only someone who could sympathize with them but also someone with power, someone who can enact real change.

And that's exactly what Obama is doing.

He wants to make sure the police aren't "militarized," but he also wants to make sure they have the military-style hardware needed to keep their officers safe when things get out of hand.

G.O.P. Aide Who Told Obama Daughters To 'Show A Little Class' Resigns!

Be careful what you post on Facebook! Elizabeth Lauten learned that the hard way over the holidays.

Lauten, the communications director for Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn), came under fire when she criticized Sasha and Malia Obama's demeanor at President Obama's annual turkey pardon on social media.

Her (now deleted) Facebook post read:

"Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you're both in those awful teen years, but you're a part of the First Family, try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play. Then again your mother and father don't respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I'm guessing you're coming up a little short in the 'good role model' department. Nevertheless, stretch yourself. Rise to the occasion. Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don't make faces during televised public events."

After receiving backlash from commenters across the political spectrum, the G.O.P. aide issued an apology statement.
