    • Melania Trump refuses to act like a first lady. Good for her.

      Lauren A. Wright is author of "On Behalf of the President" and a board member of the White House Transition Project. Melania Trump will be the first first lady in more than 200 years not to move into the White House on Inauguration Day. Her decision will cause her husband’s budding administration headaches that could be easily avoided by following tradition, including dealing with public outrage over the high cost of maintaining a full-time residence in Manhattan and increased security risks. By continuing her life as usual, Mrs. Trump will also deny the administration certain advantages, such as the feel–good media coverage that results from having a new family in the White House — no small

    • 8 Michelle Obama Quotes That Will Get You Through 2017 (8 photos)

      Happy birthday, Michelle Obama ! FLOTUS turns 53 years old today--during her last week in the White House, no less--and we can't help but get a little teary thinking about the grand impact she's had these past eight years. From creating her female education initiative, Let Girls Learn , to championing healthy living that's about more than just what you eat, Michelle has been revolutionary in more ways than one. Heck, even her style has changed the game for countless First Ladies to come. VIDEO: Michelle Obama's Best Looks of All Time 5121546754001 But perhaps what we'll remember most about this FLOTUS was her commitment to equality, in race, gender, class, and everything in between. No one says it better than her husband, President Barack Obama . "Michelle, for the past 25 years, you've been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend. You took on a role you didn't ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humor," he said in his farewell address. "You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody. And a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You've made me proud. You've made the country proud." As we attempt to fix our supposedly waterproof mascara, join us in taking a look back at eight of Michelle's most inspirational quotes. We will miss you, FLOTUS.

    • This Is How Trump's First Meal As President Will Compare To Obama's

      Fun fact: Every four years, an inaugural luncheon is held for the newly instated president by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies. The Committee's website explains that the luncheons provide an opportunity for speeches, gift presentations, and toasts. No matter how you feel about the incoming president, this luncheon is happening, just as is has since 1879, so we might as well discuss what kind of food will be served. According to GrubStreet, Donald Trump and guests will be served a seafood course of Maine lobster and Gulf shrimp with a saffron sauce and peanut crumbles. Next, he'll get grilled Seven Hills Angus beef in a dark chocolate and juniper jus. The beef will be

    • Dear Abby: Should atheist join kids at church?

      DEAR ABBY: I am an atheist. My parents, although raised Presbyterian, never to my knowledge participated in organized religion, so it was not part of my upbringing. Last year my mom started going to church again, and my kids have been going with her. I’ve always said they can make their own choices and I’d support them. Mom is about to go south for the rest of the winter and there’s no obvious church member the kids can go with, but they’d like to keep attending. Would it be wrong for me to go with them on Sundays, even though I don’t believe in the church doctrine and won’t be otherwise involved in the organization? I’m sure I could be unobtrusive, but I’m not sure what to say if someone asks

      When a utility worker in Key Largo, Fla., noticed that a section of a paved street was not settling properly, he decided to remove a manhole cover and descend into the earth. Moments later on Monday morning, the 15-foot-deep hole went silent. Sensing the man was trapped, a fellow utility worker climbed into the drainage hole to rescue him. When he, too, stopped responding, a third worker entered the same hole. All three men died, overcome by poisonous fumes underground, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. A Key Largo firefighter who made a desperate attempt to save the men also became unconscious within seconds. The firefighter, Leonardo Moreno, an eight-year veteran of the

      Fox News host Tucker Carlson began his interview Tuesday night with an unusual demand: "Tell me what your real name is." While the man Carlson was talking to claimed to be Dom Tullipso, director of operations for a business called Demand Protest, Carlson said a "law enforcement-level background check" revealed that name "does not exist" — and Carlson wasn't convinced Tullipso's business did either. The man never exactly admitted that the whole business is, in fact, a hoax, but he does give a pretty good display of what Carlson dubs "performance art." At one point, Tullipso (if that's really his name) claims his support for "national treasures such as Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, and Peyton Manning." Yes, football-playing, Super Bowl-winning Peyton Manning.
