President Obama Gets Heckled At The Illinois Polls And Is Characteristically Smooth In Response

I Can't Believe Mike, Either

Hell yes to our incredibly smooth President. Remember that time that he totally owned the birthers at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner literally a day before Osama Bin Laden was tracked down and killed? If you don’t, enjoy it. It’s hilarious.

Anyway, if he can keep his cool under a situation like that, it’s no wonder he can crack jokes when someone starts acting silly to him while he’s trying to vote. President Obama went to the polls early in Illinois yesterday and was heckled by a man named Mike Jones, who told the President not to touch his girlfriend, who was in the booth next to Obama. “I really wasn’t planning on it,” Obama responded, then began talking to the woman in question, Aia Cooper. “Now you’ll be going back home, talking to your friends about this. ‘I can’t believe Mike, he’s such a fool.’” Keep reading »

This Selfie Of Joe Biden And Barack Obama Is Giggle-Worthy

Joe Biden has created himself an Instagram account, and his first selfie features the veep casually hangin’ out with the leader of the free world — you know, the usual. If the inclusion of “selfie” in the Oxford Dictionary wasn’t enough of an indicator that any cool factor the word once had is over, politicians attempting to join in on the party definitely does. Oh, who even cares, this picture is too adorbs not to love. [USA Today] [Image via Instagram]

 

Watch Bradley Cooper Explain Why He Went Commando At The White House

Only Bradley Could Make This Story Sound Cute

Actor life is rough, especially when you’re suddenly expected to gain 15 pounds for a starring movie role around the same time you’ll be meeting the president. You know, typical stuff. Watch Bradley Cooper tell Ellen the story of his awkward encounter at the White House sans underoos. Also, please note that when referring to the tuxedo he wore to the Golden Globes, he says he just “threw it in the bag.” Is that a dude thing? Is it just a charming, low-key actor thing? Like, when was the last time you haphazardly tossed expensive formal wear into a duffel or something? Either way, he’s almost too charismatic to stare at directly — might blind us all. [ABC News]

Well Played: The Obamas’ Easter Ensembles

The Obamas dressed up in their Sunday best to attend an Easter church service in DC, and as usual, I’m totally in awe of this gorgeous family. Sasha and Malia looked beautiful (and age-appropriate) in their colorful Easter dresses, while the divine Mrs. O opted for a Prabal Gurung dress she’s worn a couple times before. Well played, Obama family! [Photo: Getty]

Cutest Ever: Katy Perry Brought A Tiny Aretha Franklin Hat Replica To The Inauguration

Remember four years ago when Aretha Franklin wore a crazy grey church hat to the Obama inauguration? Wasn’t that great? Well, Katy Perry got to go to the inauguration this time, and she paid homage to the great Miss Aretha with a version of her hat that’s small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Katy was kind enough to tweet us the baby hat, with the caption, “Big inauguration, tiny Aretha hat.” [Fashionista]
