This is such a feel-good story!

President Barack Obama on Monday commuted the prison sentences of 46 non-violent drug offenders, immediately releasing them from prison after having punishments that were deemed too severe for the crimes they committed.

In fourteen of the cases, President Obama commuted the sentences of felons serving life; in total, the 46 free passes are the most given out by a president in 50 years!

One of those 46 was Katina Smith, the mother of Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.

As we've previously reported, the NFLer's mom got locked up for a drug trafficking charge in 1999 — when he was 11 years old; she was plucked from his life after kissing him goodbye at school one day.

Thomas' maternal grandmother Minnie Pearl was also arrested with Smith, who was due to be released in 2017. Pearl — who is serving a life sentence for the same crime — is still in prison.

On Monday, President Obama spoke in a Facebook video uploaded by the White House about freeing the 46 people, discussing second chance and redemption.

The 2016 presidential campaign is right around the corner already here, and with it comes candidates looking for allies, endorsements, and (let's be honest) lots and lots of money.

Side shows aside (cough Donald Trump cough), the serious candidates in both political parties are gearing up for campaign runs, and some of them might be looking to… Caitlyn Jenner?

No, this isn't some sort of coup — it's actually just the first time anyone's ever spent the night on the South Lawn!

President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama invited girls from West Virginia, Virginia, Washington, DC and Oklahoma to make history and teach them the ropes about all things scouting.

Michelle kicked off the event with an adorable introduction, saying:

"I really just wanted to formally welcome you to the White House. There it is, it's right there.

You're making history, this is something you can tell you kids and your grand kids, do you understand the impact of this day?"

Naturally, the 10 and 11-year-olds didn't quite understand how significant their sleepover actually was, but at least Michelle seemed to have fun!

Outspoken New Jersey Governor Chris Christie Announces Presidential Bid For The Republican Party — While Calling Out His Fellow Candidates!

no title

Step aside, Donald Trump! There's another tough-talking GOP candidate in town now!

On Tuesday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for president!

While the Republican party already has over a dozen candidates running, the New Jersey native has promised to be aggressive in his upcoming campaign. He told voters:

"You're going to get what I think whether you like it or not, or whether it makes you cringe every once in a while or not. I am now ready to fight for the people of the United States of America."

Though the 52-year-old's resume is impressive, he has also faced backlash from former aides who created traffic jams at a bridge to get back against a Democratic mayor who chose not to endorse Christie's re-election!

While Christie denied he had anything to do with the bridge closing, this raised the awareness that that those who work with the governor will do anything to win!

During his campaign launch, the presidential hopeful called out the "bickering leaders" from both parties — though highlighted Barack Obama's "weak and feckless foreign policy" and referred to fellow candidate Hillary Clinton the president's "second mate."

In the gymnasium of his old high school, the presidential hopeful declared:
