Michelle Obama wants to get the White House in pristine condition before she leaves!

It's been reported that the First Lady has redecorated the White House State Dining Room — at the small price of $595,000!

A few of the modest changes include silk draperies, custom made mahogany chairs (with "horsehair" fabric and trimmed with brass nail heads, of course!)

The update has been in the works since 2012, upon the arrival of two new custom-made wool rugs — so they can be switched out for cleaning!

no title

The horror!

In an unprecedented move, 50 Girl Scouts descended upon the White House lawn on Tuesday, shocking America and making camp for the night.

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:

Presidential Hopeful Jeb Bush Once Said That Unwed Mothers Deserve To Be Publicly Shamed…

no title

What the actual hell?

Jeb Bush may be in the running to be the next President of the United States, but we don't think his stance on a certain group of people is going to earn him many votes.

Apparently, back in 1995 the former Florida Governor wrote a book entitled Profiles in Character where he said that unwed mothers should be publicly shamed…

That's right!

The Republican even titled the chapter "The Restoration of Shame" where he implores society to mock people who have sex outside of marriage, writing:

A Bomb Threat Forces The Secret Service To Evacuate The White House Briefing Room

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaViolenceScary!News

no title

This seems like a plot line straight out of Scandal!

Press Secretary Josh Earnest had a terrifying moment on Tuesday when a bomb threat was reported in the briefing right in the middle of his press address.

The Secret Service were quick to usher Josh and all of the reporters out of the briefing room, but not before the feed showing the statement was cut.

President Barack Obama was also at the White House at the time of the incident, but was far enough away from the room that he was not at harm.

Viewers on Twitter were a little annoyed that they didn't get to see just how the Secret Service operated their evacuation… but it would kind of be beside the point if the Secret Service didn't keep their ish, ya know, secret.

Everything's already back to normal, but we're just glad that everyone is safe!
