Obama Returns To The Spotlight To Talk Politics While Expertly Avoiding Donald Trump's Name — Get The Best Twitter Reactions!

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaDonald TrumpTwitter

<a href=

On Monday, Barack Obama made his first public appearance since leaving office in January!

The former President visited University of Chicago to speak to the students about community involvement of the next generation, and we could only imagine what else.

It's no wonder he had the institution AND "President Obama" trending on Twitter, as he told the crowd:

"The single most important thing I can do is prepare next generation to take their crack at changing the world."

Preach!

Obviously, we hoped the 55-year-old would make any remarks about Donald Trump as it comes the same week POTUS hits his 100-day mark in office… and well, he expertly avoided it!

There were some hints though as he brought up getting news from social media (as in possible fake news), immigration, and the "cutthroat" business of having a clothing line (cough cough, Ivanka Trump).

United Airlines Police Officer Put On Leave For Violently 'Re-Accommodating' Passenger!

Filed under: Legal MattersViolenceViral: News

At least someone is taking swift action. Even if it isn't much…

After video of aviation police violently dragging a United Airlines passenger off a plane against his will (because of the flight being overbooked of all things) went viral, all the United CEO could do was apologize for "having to re-accommodate" the customers.

But the police are taking this disturbing story more seriously; the officer responsible to bloodying the poor passenger's face is apparently being put on administrative leave.

Chicago Aviation Department spokesperson Karen Pride wrote in an official statement to the press:

"The incident on United flight 3411 was not in accordance with our standard operating procedure and the actions of the aviation security officer are obviously not condoned by the Department. That officer has been placed on leave effective today pending a thorough review of the situation."

No word yet on whether the leave is paid, but we think we have a pretty good guess.

In case you didn't see the shocking video, United Airlines is in some serious hot water after forcibly (aka, pretty damn violently) removing a passenger from a flight on Sunday.

No, the man wasn't causing a disturbance; he was chosen randomly to be kicked off after the flight was overbooked.

Mr. Carter edged out some serious competition to earn the spot this year, as George Michael, Gloria Estefan, and Madonna were all nominated but didn't make the cut. Maybe next year, Madge!

Like everything in Bey and Jay's life, this prestigious honor is well deserved for the 47-year-old. He holds the record for the solo artist with the most No. 1 albums in the Billboard chart with 13.

Congrats, Hov!

You might find this hard to believe, Perezcious readers, but apparently Kanye West had completely good intentions when he met with Donald Trump.

As you probably know by now, the rapper had a chat with the President-Elect while in New York on Tuesday.

There's been plenty of speculation that the 39-year-old only met up with the Republican to gain a seat in his Cabinet — which, to be fair, apparently doesn't require any sort of qualified experience or moral integrity.

However, TMZ is revealing that Yeezy's meeting motivations are actually GOOD ones!

Sources close to the songsmith say 'Ye is hoping his relationship with the conservative celebrity could help end violence in Chicago.

The tabloid insists there was no political talk during this specific conversation, but the hitmaker apparently plans to get even closer to Trump once he's sworn in, in order to eventually promote peace in the Illinois city.

In fact, Kanye even confirmed his inspirational intentions on Twitter, writing:
