Donald Trump obviously miscalculated the power of the President!
As if that White House Correspondent’s “ROAST” wasn’t enough of an embarrassment, Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” show was totally shut down last night by President Obama’s announcement that Osama bin Laden had been found.
Having been defeated at his own dirty game, “The Donald” hit the tweets a few hours ago to congratulate Obama for a job well done… Continue Reading…
It’s official… Luther Campbell is running for mayor of Miami-Dade County.
I tried to told ya back in January of this year, but even then I thought it was a joke.
In February, Mr. “Nasty as You Wanna Be” revealed his reasons for running and his decision to include a “stripper tax” in his mayoral platform (click HERE if you missed it).
Well if we didn’t believe it before… we HAVE to believe it now.
Last Tuesday, (April 12th) was the deadline for all Miami Mayoral wannabees to file their paperwork to be included on the special election ballot and Uncle Luke was front & center…
This campaign is about me as a business man working for the people… Continue Reading…
First Lady Michelle Obama sat down with NBC’s Today Show host Matt Lauer Wednesday, where she addressed the president’s smoking habit and recent speculation about whether the he dyes his hair.
The First Lady recently confirmed that Obama has indeed kicked his nasty 10 year smoking habit, stating that it’s been almost a year since he took a puff.
She takes Lauer’s jokes about Obama sneaking cigarettes in Lincoln bedroom in stride and credits the strong women in his life for his success in quitting.
Lauer also asks the First Lady “Is he dyeing his hair?” while showing her pictures snapped last month of the president’s coif.

“No,” she replied. Obama then commented that her husband looked “pretty gray” in the images shown. “I think if he had known he would be president, he would have started dyeing his hair ten years ago,” she added.

A few weeks ago, I jokingly asked if you ever would cast your ballot for Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell to run your city. Well now, if you’re a citizen of Miami, Florida you will have the chance to do just that.
Uncle Luke has officially decided to run for mayor of MIAMI following the March 15th recall of current Mayor Carlos Alvarez. Campbell recently did an interview with The Miami New Times regarding his campaign strategy and why he feels he’s the best man for the job.
Oh… and he’s including a tax on Miami strippers to his list of must haves! *sigh* I can’t with Luke. Not today…

It’s no secret that this has been a rough presidency for Barack Obama and he has the gray hair to prove it. Recent before-and-after photos published by outlets including England’s Daily Mail online, Gawker and a number of print tabloids apparently illustrate a recent pronounced darkening of the president’s coif.
Many have cataloged the before-and-after appearances of presidents past, and Obama and his staff have readily admitted he’s no different.
“Change is hard,” Obama told the Urban League last summer. “I don’t know if you’ve noticed. That’s why I’ve got all this gray hair.”
Well… not anymore!
