Barack Obama

  1. The Queen of England Sent Her First Tweet, Let’s Commemorate With 9 First Tweets of World Leaders

    We'll be eagerly awaiting her first Vine.

    The Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II, sent her first tweet! She took off a glove to do it. I wonder if she then used it to smack the iPad and challenge it to a duel?

  2. There’s A Little Bit Of Faceplanting Oval Office Kid In All Of Us

    BIDEN! STOP THAT!

    Today has been pretty boring for the non-tech crowd, but White House kid is here to restore our faith in trivial news (and America). On June 23rd, the well-dressed boy pictured above visited the Oval Office to watch Obama thank his father for years in the Secret Service and proceeded to Paul Rudd in Wet Hot American Summer-himself all over the joint.

  3. Obama Will Release Executive Order About Gender Identity Discrimination

    Holy crap.

    During a reception for Pride Month, President Barack Obama announced today that the White House is currently preparing an executive order that bans job discrimination on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation. Unfortunately it only affects employees who are hired by federal contractors, but this is certainly a radical first step that might positively affect a lot of marginalized people

  4. Zach Galifianakis Currently Number One Traffic Driver to Healthcare.gov

    Eat your heart out, Upworthy.

    Say what you want about whether or not Obama's appearance on Zach Galifianakis's Between Two Ferns web series was undignified and unbecoming of such a high-ranking political official, but you've gotta admit: it appears to have paid off.

  5. Twitter Users Call Out President Obama Because “Madder” Isn’t a Word, Except That it Is

    There may be problems with the healthcare site, but not with Obama's grammar.

    In a speech about the problems with the Affordable Care Act registration site, President Obama said, "Nobody is madder than me." The Internet, ever the haven of grammar trolls, has erupted with people on Twitter calling the President out for using "madder" claiming that it's not a word. Bad news, pedants -- "Madder" is absolutely a word.

  6. Orson Scott Card Compares Obama to Hitler, Napoleon, Ceasar, Worried He’ll Use Urban Youths as Secret Police

    Somewhere, the press team for Ender's Game weeping openly, begging Card to just stop with the talking thing.

    You know that feeling when you read something so ridiculous you think it's a really funny parody, followed by that sinking sensation when it turns out its writer was serious? Orson Scott Card's "Unlikely Events" on why Obama is already a dictator, controlling literally all the things and all the people is like that.

  7. Barack Obama Follows a Porn Company on Twitter

    You know everyone can see who you follow on Twitter, right?

    To be fair, Barack Obama's Twitter account isn't run by Barack Obama himself. It says right in the description "This account is run by Organizing for Action staff." The account follows over 660,000 people, so it's obviously not being that well curated. Still. Maybe the Organizing for Action staff should have more sense than to follow porn companies like Wicked Pictures which produces titles like Bikini Outlaws. This isn't the first time the President's account has been caught following porn either.

  8. Here’s a Thing That Exists: White House Petition for Obama to Recreate Scene From The Incredibles

    This is why the government doesn't want us to have nice things.

    As you can probably guess just by having basic knowledge of how humans on the internet behave, the White House's We The People website, which allows anyone to round up signatures and potentially secure a response from the U.S. government, is full of stupid joke petitions. The latest of these is a petition to have Barack and Michele Obama reenact the now-classic scene from The Incredibles in which Frozone begs his wife to find his super suit for him. Guys, come on. The man clearly has other stuff he should be worrying about.

  9. White House Takes on Patent Trolls, Promises Reform of Patent System

    Patent trolls are the worst, so the White House is finally doing something about them.

    The United States patent system is broken. Instead of its intended purpose of protecting inventors from having their ideas stolen, it's been turned into something used to stifle innovation. Today the White House announced a plan to reform the patent system, and to stop so-called Patent Trolls.

  10. Good News, Everyone! The House Passed CISPA!

    They say every cloud has a silver lining. If that's true, then there has to be something good about the fact that 288 members of Congress just voted to pass CISPA, right? The bill essentially strips citizens of any right to online privacy, which is obviously terrible, but there has to be something positive about this.
