Whoa!

Sarah Palin was on TODAY Monday morning to talk Donald Trump, but the conversation very quickly turned heated!

Will Smith & President Barack Obama Add Even More To The #OscarsSoWhite Conversation — See What They Said!

no title

The debate continues.

The Oscars probably didn't know what they were getting themselves into two weeks ago when they went ahead and failed to nominate a single person of color for any of the acting categories.

We've heard plenty of opinions from both sides — from Jada Pinkett Smith saying she's boycotting this year's ceremony to Cuba Gooding, Jr. defending the awards — but now we're hearing even more high-profile takes on the controversy.

After his initial interview where he confirmed he'd also be skipping the show, Will Smith has gone further saying what Hollywood is doing is "almost criminal!"

But he's not alone — President Barack Obama also weighed in on the topic, saying he believes it's "just an expression of this broader issue."

We're just happy the conversation is persisting and that change has actually started happening!

Ch-ch-check out both Will Smith and President Barack Obama's conversations on race (below)!!!

Hillary Clinton Thinks Appointing President Obama To The Supreme Court Would Be A 'Great Idea'

Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama

If Hillary Clinton wins the presidential race, she may not want Barack Obama to go too far from the White House!

The Democratic candidate didn't shut down the possibility of appointing the current POTUS to the Supreme Court if she were to be elected.

When a voter asked about potentially filling one of the three open SCOTUS spots with Obama at a campaign event in Iowa on Tuesday, the 68-year-old responded:

"Wow, what a great idea. No one has ever suggested that to me, I love that, wow. He may have a few other things to do but I tell you that's a great idea. I mean, he's brilliant, he can set forth an argument and he was a law professor. So he's got all the credentials, but we would have to get a Democratic Senate to get him confirmed."

Innneresting!

But would Obama be up for becoming a justice after his eight years in office??

It's hard to say, but the former constitutional law professor at the University of Chicago Law School didn't seem to be eager to fill the role back in 2014 when talking with the New Yorker:

"When I got out of law school, I chose not to clerk. Partly because I was an older student, but partly because I don't think I have the temperament to sit in a chamber and write opinions. I love the law, intellectually. I love nutting out these problems, wrestling with these arguments. I love teaching. I miss the classroom and engaging with students. But I think being a justice is a little bit too monastic for me. Particularly after having spent six years and what will be eight years in this bubble, I think I need to get outside a little bit more."

A year later, the 54-year-old had similar feelings in an interview with Bill Simmons in November of 2015:

"I don't have the temperament to sit in relative solitude and just opine and write from the bench. I want to be in the action a little bit more."

Maybe Hillz could change his mind! You never know!

What do U think Obama should do post-presidency, Perezcious readers?? SOUND OFF in the comments!

During the interview, the Clueless actress called Jada Pinkett Smith's boycott of the award show "ludicrous," and that expecting awards to be selected by race would be a "disservice" to the Academy members.

The newly 49-year-old (happy birthday, gurl!) went on to say she thinks the black community is still segregated by the presence of award shows like the BET Awards and NAACP Image Awards, explaining:
