Tucson Hero To Spend Birthday At State Of The Union With Michelle Obama

obamas to honor tucson hero

What a lovely gesture to make for this brave, young man!

Daniel Hernandez Jr., an intern for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, will sit next to Michelle Obama at tomorrow's State of the Union, which happens to be on his birthday.

The young man showed SUCH bravery when he rushed to Congresswoman Gifford's aid during the mass shooting in Tucson, Arizona two weeks ago.

Here's what he had to say about his opportunity to attend the State of the Union on his birthday:

"I'm both honored and excited to have the opportunity to travel to our nation's Capitol for a once in a lifetime event. Also the chance to bring my father along for his first trip to Washington, D.C. The State of the Union is a pivotal moment because it is our opportunity to find where we are and where we will be going as a nation in this upcoming year."

We hope it's a wonderful trip, Daniel! You deserve it!

…And Happy Birthday in advance!

Obamas NOT Invited To Royal Wedding

obamas not invited to royal wedding

Maybe their invitations got lost in the mail?

Unless the post office is SERIOUSLY off of their game, it looks like President Barack Obama and Michelle won't be attending the royal wedding.

According to sources, Prince William and Kate want their marriage to take place in front of "ordinary citizens."

Here's what a St. James Palace spokesman had to say about it:

"The wedding will not be a formal state occasion since Prince William is neither the sovereign nor the heir to the throne."

And here's what a senior courtier had to say about the President's exclusion from the wedding:

"It is certainly not the case that all foreign heads of state will be excluded. The guest list is still being drawn up and could change, but as things stand it's right (to say the Obamas will not be invited)."

If none of the heads of state were invited, we'd understand this…but it'd be a bit awkward if others are invited, and not the Obamas.

Do U think Barack and Michelle should be invited to the royal wedding?
