Michelle Just Tried To Push Melania Aside To Take Over As First Lady – Blows Up BIG In Her Face

Published

on

Instead of slipping off into obscurity so we can all forget about her, Michelle Obama still appears to be obsessed with maintaining the spotlight she soaked up for eight years too long. She seems to be enjoying the life of luxury her husband’s presidency afforded her more than other former first ladies, as she travels around the globe with a massive security entourage and team of people to cater to her every need like a queen. Michelle took a break from vacationing recently for just long enough to try to reclaim her coveted role from Melania Trump when it blew up in her face.

It’s been hard for the Obamas to relinquish their roles to the Trumps since they second they took office. The reality that they are no longer in charge is hard for them to accept, so they are doing everything they can to maintain those positions in any way they can, while assuming that Americans are desperate to have them back. Perhaps the hardest part for Michelle is that she’s not getting the opportunity to host a number of events for rappers and sports stars she tried to assimilate with while in the White House. However, that hasn’t stopped her from forcing her way onto the scene.

Rather than our current and very graceful first lady being given the honor of presenting anything at this year’s ESPY awards from the ESPN network, as was routine for her predecessor to do, Michelle bullied her way back on stage to get the spot seemingly so Melania wasn’t given it. Taking over as first lady for this event, since this awards show has now made a habit out of politicizing it to cater to the left,  Michelle spoke on stage to the crowd in attendance and those watching from home. She thought that her words and presence would be well-received. It turned out to be a huge mistake for the network just one year after polarizing much of the country with giving the honor of the Arthur Ashe award for courage to transgender star Caitlin Jenner.

While the sports stars and guests in the room gave Michelle a warm greeting, the rest of the country was far less impressed which was reflected in the massive decline in ratings. The only thing worse for the network than giving a courage award to a man who transitioned into a woman and not a real American hero, was to have someone as disliked and self-entitled as Michelle Obama present on stage this year.

Breitbart reports:

ESPN’s ESPY Awards Ratings Tumble for Second Straight Year

TV ratings for Wednesday are in, and the numbers show that ESPN’s ESPY Awards broadcast fell for the second year in a row.

The awards show, which this year featured former First Lady Michelle Obama as an award presenter, fell over last year’s numbers, Variety magazine reported Thursday.

The Wednesday broadcast drew a 1.4 rating with 5.3 million viewers, the Hollywood-based magazine said. But that was down from last year’s 1.7 and 5.6 million viewers.

In addition, both last year and this year earned lower viewership compared to the 2015 broadcast which drew a 2.2 rating with 7.7 million viewers. The 2015 award show featured Caitlyn Jenner’s acceptance of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

 ESPN likely hoped that the announcement that former First Lady Michelle Obama was tapped to present the Arthur Ashe Courage Award might lead to higher ratings this year. The former First Lady presented the award to Special Olympics Founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver.

The nearly 40-year-old cable sports network has been battling the perception that it leans too far to the left, but the inclusion of Obama on the show didn’t seem to help knock back that perception in the least.

ESPN has already suffered a huge loss to their viewership after they decided to mix their liberal politics with sports. They didn’t learn that people don’t want a part of that divisiveness and just prefer their athletics without politics. The network had the opportunity to repair their ratings by either giving the opportunity to Melania or leaving all political people out of it but decided to make matters much worse for themselves instead. Now their ratings are in the tank worse than ever before since they refuse to acknowledge that Michelle seems to have this effect on things.

People SHOCKED At Group Of Protesting Players Yesterday When They See What’s Really Bizarre

Wow!

Published

on

If you’re not yet sick and tired of the NFL protesting the National Anthem, just wait, there’s still time. The protest is still in full swing, as it seems to be fueled by every bit of controversy surrounding it. It’s leading many of us to ask ourselves why it’s even still going on after the considerable dent that the subsequent NFL boycott has put in their earnings.

Even though this protest has been the worst thing that could happen to the bottom line of the league and the teams that make it up, they seem to be too afraid of their players to put an end to it. Because if you put an end to something that has been accepted as politically correct, that makes you a racist (or sexist, or bigot or whatever the closest PC accepted slur might be).

So what are these protesting players fighting for? According to conservative pundit Allen B. West, what they’re supposedly fighting for is the very thing that should negate their platform.

“Some players in the NFL are still kneeling to protest ‘inequality’ but the crazy thing is, they go on to play a game which celebrates that very thing! They play to win, to be better than the opposing team. To be unequal. Where’s the justice in that?

Saturday night the Houston Astros defeated the New York Yankees and will go on to play in the baseball World Series, the fall classic. How many teams are there in the MLB? We know one thing for certain: there will only be one who holds up the championship trophy.

We gather for sporting events and cheer for our favorite teams to win, and are seriously discouraged when they don’t. Man, my heart sank when Oklahoma scored a 22-yard touchdown with :07 left to beat my Kansas State Wildcats. The reality is that everyone takes the field of competition but there will always, only, be one champion.

We don’t go to these sporting events to see anyone determine the outcomes except for the players on the field. We certainly don’t go just to see everyone have a great time participating and no one keeping score. We love the competition. And we love to play Queen’s song, ‘We are the champions’ — not ‘we are the participators.’

In the game of sports, these teams are free to compete, and each has the opportunity to win. And that means one thing: they are not all equal. If all of these teams in all sports were made to be equal, then they are not free…and they don’t have opportunity, as someone else will be determining their outcomes.

And so it goes — why do we want that to be the means by which our lives are determined? If we are indeed a free people, then we are not equal. We all have our respective talents, abilities, and competencies that in a free society we’re able to develop. I was never intended to be a college-level athlete. Nor was it in the works for me to be a renowned artist, musician or engineer. However, I was free to pursue my happiness and with the grand opportunities this great nation affords have been successful in my own ability. This is the same for us all.

Now, some have the disturbing, distorted and delusional perspective that they can render us all equal to some degree. We are then no longer free as our lives, our outcomes, are determined, regulated, or prescribed by others. Instead of being the officials and referees to ensure theirs is a level playing field of opportunity for us to win…they instead try to create the winners, according to their ideology and agenda.

The poison of social egalitarianism tells us there’s no exceptionalism. That Alabama would have to give up, forfeit points to Tennessee in order to make it a fair game…according to whom? Free throws in basketball are not just given, they’re awarded when someone commits a foul. A walk in baseball doesn’t just happen when you show up with bat in hand…it’s given if you’re skilled enough not to strike out, and the pitcher isn’t skilled enough to throw a strike.

The progressive socialist left will say this is oversimplified; it’s not. Life isn’t about penalizing and taking away from others what they’ve accomplished, what they’ve earned and achieved. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (not guarantee of happiness) is what makes America special, unique and exceptional. It’s the reason why people can come from anywhere in the world with nothing, and with their own drive and determination become winners…champions.

We need to reject this notion of being an equal people…being free means we’re not equal. And that, folks, is a good thing.”

The one thing that every liberal pretends doesn’t exist, and every conservative can’t stop seeing is that when we see players protesting, they’re doing so from an inherently unequal place in life. They don’t step down from their coveted position because they had a better coach than some other kid who maybe had equal talent.

It’s bizarre to even imagine a world where there’s someone going around, tracing their way back through our lives to find out if we’ve had any benefit that someone else hasn’t had, and taking something away from us if we have. If that were the case, we wouldn’t need to work for a greater future for our children, because it wouldn’t matter; if we gave it to them, someone would just take it away, and if we didn’t, someone would just even the score.

Equality is something that can only be obtained in potential; you still have the potential in this country to make anything you want out of yourself, the outcome is up to you.

Patriots QB Just Pissed Off His Entire Team With What He Did Before Game While Players Were Protesting

This will make you cheer!

Published

on

Just days after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell stated that he would prefer NFL players to stand during the national anthem, many players continued their sick protest during week 7. The entire New Orleans Saints team knelt in unison before the anthem started while Green Bay Packers players stood arm in arm while the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ played. In another game, three Miami Dolphin players stayed in their locker room while the anthem was sung, and in a different matchup across the country, Los Angeles Chargers offensive tackle Russell Okung reportedly raised his fist in the air as the anthem played.

Though while there are plenty of reports of these NFL players disrespecting our nation’s heroes, there are some players that won’t be apart of this nasty protest. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is one of them and what he was caught doing yesterday before the game has angered all the race-baiting players who protested that day.

The NFL protests have been going on for over a year now, and there seems to be no end in sight. These anti-American NFL players continue to claim that they are protesting racial inequality all while cashing million dollar checks and equating NFL team owners to slave owners.

After months of fans voicing their frustration over these disgusting protests, President Trump entered the fray by stating that players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired, which in turn ignited the controversy swirling around the players. Instead, of these racist NFL players ending their obvious publicity stunt to appear politically relevant, they only ramped up their efforts. Week after week, more players continue to kneel or raise a single fist in the “Black Power” salute while the national anthem was played. But, unlike all those ungrateful players, quarterback Tom Brady is trying to make a difference by doing the exact opposite.

Yesterday, the New England Patriots played against the Atlanta Falcons, but before the game began fans in the stand were able to witness what humility looks like. Tom Brady opted out of his normal pre-game routine and took the time to recognize roughly 200 military men and women that were in attendance with wide receiver Chris Hogan.

Here is more from Independent Journal Review:

The plan to invite the members of the military to the game was reportedly initiated by Patriots long snapper Joe Cardona, who is also an active member of the U.S. Navy, and special teams player Matthew Slater, according to 247 Sports.

It was a small gesture, but the message from Brady was clear.

The display is getting some extra attention as it stands in contrast to some NFL players who continue to kneel or sit during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice. Polls have shown many Americans find it offensive to use the national anthem as a platform for any protest.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell recently made it clear that the league wants players to stand for the national anthem, saying in a statement:

“Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem. It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us. We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues. The controversy over the Anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues. We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players.”

However, he later clarified the NFL would not punish players who continued to kneel.

Tom Brady’s act of kindness and respect is incredibly refreshing after watching months of constant disrespect from arrogant NFL players. It is entirely possible that the players that are still carrying on with their nasty protest may quit it after seeing that their actions are disgraceful and not welcome at all.

These NFL players have the right to protest but need to pick a better venue that does not anger the majority of your fan base. The old adage of “know your audience” applies to this exact situation, and if they want to keep their public platform, they better start reassessing their protest. They are more than welcome to kneel, make signs, and lecture people when they are out of uniform, but when they slip that uniform on, they need to adhere to their bosses rules and demands. If they don’t like it, well, there’s the door.

At any rate, hopefully, they will notice all the positive press Tom Brady is receiving and finally, begin to back peddle on their nasty protests!

Desperate Obama Just Showed Up Where Trump Was And Tried To Take Over As President – Blows Up In His Face

Just go away already!

Published

on

It’s natural to be a little bit jealous of whoever gets hired to take your old job, especially if you’ve been removed against your will, but former President Obama seems to be taking it to a whole new level. Not only is he refusing to leave D.C. and creeping suspiciously close to the Trump family in his talk as well as his choice of neighborhood, but he’s decided recently to remind the United States what we’re missing with him out of office.

The former Communist in Chief thought it would be a good idea to show up on President Trump’s home turf and throw some shade at the President’s policy in regards to the Paris agreement. Obummer should really know better than to go to the Trump dominated form of social media and try to show him up, but ever the glutton for punishment, that’s exactly what he tried to do.

He was successful in on thing; it does have us reflecting on what we’re missing with the Obama’s out of the White House, but I’m not sure he’ll be thrilled with the result.

Via Daily Wire:

“We just checked the U.S. Constitution and, we were right: There’s only one president at a time.

But Barack Obama, who moved out of the White House on January 20 and, we all hoped, into obscurity, is trying to be the shadow president, refusing to duck out of the spotlight as he tries to discredit President Trump at every turn.

On Thursday, when Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord — one of Obama’s signature policies — the former president went bat crazy.

Speaking as a private American citizen, Obama said: ‘The nations that remain in the Paris Agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in jobs and industries created. But even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I’m confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way.’

Remember that Obama signed the agreement without the consent of the U.S. Congress, an executive overreach of extraordinary magnitude. But when Trump decided that the accord was just too costly ($1 billion-plus already in taxpayer money) for a measly return (two-tenths of one degree Celsius reduction in global temperature by the year 2100), Obama spoke as if he is still president.

And, of course, he praised his own bold vision.

‘A year and a half ago, the world came together in Paris around the first-ever global agreement to set the world on a low-carbon course and protect the world we leave to our children,” he said.

‘It was steady, principled American leadership on the world stage that made that achievement possible. It was bold American ambition that encouraged dozens of other nations to set their sights higher as well. And what made that leadership and ambition possible was America’s private innovation and public investment in growing industries like wind and solar — industries that created some of the fastest new streams of good-paying jobs in recent years, and contributed to the longest streak of job creation in our history.’

Now, Trump is less than 150 days into his (first) term as president. He’s just getting started. But here are few things Obama left behind when his time in the White House was over. A crumbling health care system that is on the verge of implosion; $9,334,590,089,060.56 (that’s trillion) in new debt; a Middle East in absolute shambles; the terror group ISIS stronger than ever and growing fast; the U.S. border so porous some American cities are overrun with illegal aliens; and the list goes on and on.

I don’t think it’s any great shock to any of us that the Democrat who left office might disagree on some policy with his Republican replacement. The surprise is that Obama thinks people might still want to listen to what he has to say on the matter. Obama was the world’s worst about unilateral decision making that bordered on the illegal. He made decisions on a daily basis that were questioned by scholars the world over as to their legality, so his disapproval of the sitting President’s completely legal, though liberally frowned upon policy, doesn’t hold much weight.

If Obama wants to tell us what he’s actually upset about, i.e. that he’s not still in the White House, then that’s an issue for a different day. But for today, we don’t give a rip what you think about the Paris agreement, Mr. Former President, because (thankfully) you’re not in office anymore, and America can actually do what’s good for us for a chance, instead of what lines the DNC pockets.

Thank you, and good night.
