no title

Many Americans found themselves tossing and turning on election night, but Michelle Obama apparently wasn't one of them.

While most of the country was waiting until the wee hours of the morning on November 9 to find out who would become the next president, the First Lady revealed she was sound asleep in her White House bed!

In a joint interview with President Barack Obama out Wednesday, FLOTUS broke her silence on President-elect Donald Trump's stunning upset, and revealed why she went to bed early on election night.

Speaking to People, she recalled:

"I went to bed. I don't like to watch the political discourse; I never have… I barely did with [Barack]."

The mother-of-two was one of Hillary Clinton's most influential supporters on the campaign trail, delivering passionate speeches about the dangers of electing Trump.

Though once election night came, Michelle considered her job done with the power officially in the hands of

no title

Save us, zaddy!

While President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton may not have been able to protect us from a Donald Trump dictatorship… the final piece of their trifecta still has a few tricks up his sleeve.

On Monday, Vice President Joe Biden more-or-less announced his intentions to run for office in 2020 — granted we even survive that long — after a Senate session in Washington, D.C.!

Queen trumps President any day!

Madonna may have just been named Billboard's Woman of the Year, but that doesn't mean her 2016 played out exactly as she pictured it.

Donald Trump Believes Philippines' Leader's Plan To Slaughter Millions Of Drug Users Is 'The Right Way'

no title

It's not just China and Taiwan where Donald Trump is breaking from all normal and consistent American foreign policy standards!

The President-elect on Friday had a "very engaging, animated" conversation with the leader of the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte, by phone, according to reports.

Trump and Duterte are sometimes seen as very similar in their styles, respective rises to power, and their controversial statements, so the seven minute phone call between the two must have been interesting, to say the least.

Duterte has come under fire for many things, including calling President Barack Obama the "son of a whore" (what?!), but it's the leader's stance on the drug wars that is most shocking, at least in regards to The Donald.

Duterte has been a strong advocate of extrajudicial killings in an effort to fight drugs in his country, after launching an unprecedented campaign this year that went so far as to call on the police and even civilians to kill drug users as well as drug suspects.

The leader has also pledged to himself kill thousands of drug suspects in custody, lest the Philippines turn into a drug haven — and all of this disturbing violence has caused international condemnation, including from President Obama himself.

And then there's Trump, who apparently told

Donald Trump Is ALREADY Risking A Major Dispute With China — Here's What He Did Last Night

no title

Well, Donald Trump won't take office for another six or so weeks, and he's already risking a pretty significant diplomatic dispute with one of the more important countries in the world: China.

The President-elect on Friday night startled the international community when he spoke on the phone with the President of Taiwan — and while that may not sound like a big deal to those not in the know, that marks the first time a U.S. politician has spoken with a Taiwanese leader since 1979.

What the what?!

It's a complicated history, but basically, it all goes back to '79 and President Jimmy Carter, who severed diplomatic relations with the island and installed a "One China" policy, recognizing only the government in Beijing as the one, true China.

Every President since — from Ronald Reagan, to both Bushes, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama — has followed the policy.

Now, Trump already has broken from it, and the consequences could be dire, because the general feeling is that China is PISSED at this development.

Trump, tweeting away on Friday, obviously doesn't see the big deal in his phone call (below):
