Donald Trump has long been known for his unhealthy eating choices. But now his dining out habits are being revealed, and some of his practices are just plain bizarre.

Former President Donald Trump‘s deep love of Diet Coke and fast food is a well known fact. But when he was POTUS, the 74-year-old had a fine dining ritual for those four years whenever he headed to the upscale BLT Prime restaurant inside the Trump D.C. Hotel. There was even a Standard Operating Procedure manual that staff had to follow whenever Trump came in, which has been obtained by the Washingtonian. It revealed that table 72 of the eatery was always on constant reserve for when Trump decided to eat there.

Even though Trump refused to wear face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic, he apparently was a germaphobe while dining out. When he arrived at BLT Prime, the POTUS was “discreetly” given a mini bottle of Purell hand sanitizer. He also demanded that his Diet Coke choices be presented in a certain way and the pouring involved seven steps. It began with the waiter asking, “Good (time of day) Mr. President. Would you like your Diet Coke with or without ice?” The publication reports that “A polished tray with chilled bottles and highball glasses was already prepared for either response.”

“The beverage had to be opened in front of the germaphobe commander in chief, ‘never beforehand.’ The server was to hold a longneck-bottle opener by the lower third of the handle in one hand and the Diet Coke, also by the lower third, in the other. Once poured, the drink had to be placed at the President’s right-hand side. ‘Repeat until POTUS departs,” the instructions reportedly continued.

According to the S.O.P. document, Trump always had the same order: “Shrimp cocktail, well-done steak, and fries (plus sometimes apple pie or chocolate cake for dessert). Popovers — make it a double for the President — had to be served within two minutes and the crustaceans ‘immediately.’” Trump’s germaphobe habits came into play again, as the server’s instruction manual advised that they “open mini glass bottles of Heinz ketchup in front of Trump, taking care to ensure he could hear the seal make the ‘pop” sound,’” according to the Washingtonian.

Perhaps the most unusual aspect of the instructions was the amount of candy and snacks that had to be on hand for when the president dined at BLT Prime. It was required that  “A tray of junk food needed to be available for every Trump visit: Lay’s potato chips (specifically, sour cream and onion), Milky Way, Snickers, Nature Valley Granola Bars, Tic Tacs, gummy bears, Chips Ahoy, Oreos, Nutter Butters, Tootsie Rolls, chocolate-covered raisins, and Pop-Secret,” according to the site. As if he couldn’t get those in the White House as well?!

Trump’s love of Diet Coke was so great that he had a red button on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office that when pressed, the soda would be delivered by a butler. U.K’s Time Radio Chief Political Commentator Tom Newton Dunn pointed it out in a tweet showing photos of freshly inaugurated President Joe Biden at the Resolute Desk on Jan. 20, 2021 compared to Trump’s previous setup.

“President Biden has removed the Diet Coke button. When @ShippersUnbound and I interviewed Donald Trump in 2019, we became fascinated by what the little red button did. Eventually Trump pressed it, and a butler swiftly brought in a Diet Coke on a silver platter. It’s gone now,” Dunn shared, stunning the world that Trump actually had a Diet Coke button on his desk!

Trump’s love of fast food has has also been well well documented. His first wife Ivana Trump claimed that Donald’s greatest “weakness is the Big Mac” from McDonald’s. During a Jan. 2019 White House visit by the newly victorious the NCAA football champion Clemson Tigers football squad, Trump had McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s items laid out on expensive platters for the players as their dinner. While the visit did occur during an ongoing government shutdown over his border wall funding demands, Trump told reporters that “I would think that’s their favorite food,” when discussing his cheap and greasy dinner selection for the elite athletes, as he himself loved the stuff.

Hillary Clinton managed to troll Donald Trump with just one simple emoji on February 17, in reaction to his Atlantic City hotel and casino being bulldozed.

Hillary Clinton used a waving-hand emoji to say goodbye to The Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, which was demolished in New Jersey on Wednesday morning. She shaded the former president on Twitter in a reply to a video of the wreckage, via Bloomberg. While the well-known emoji is typically used to say “hello” or “goodbye,” it’s obvious that Hillary’s use of the icon symbolized a grinning farewell to Donald’s since-destroyed property.

Hillary’s disdain for Donald, 74, is well-documented, especially during their respective presidential runs for the White House in 2016. Ahead of Trump losing the 2020 presidential election to President Joe Biden, Hillary, 73, made it clear that she would do anything in her power to “retire” Donald as leader of the free world.

“But to be serious, the number one priority for our country and world is retiring Trump, and, as I always have, I will do whatever I can to support our nominee,” she tweeted in January 2020. In November, Hillary kept that same energy when she told Amy Schumer in a Zoom interview, “I’m spending most of my time trying to do everything I can to retire [Trump], and to send him back to the golf course full-time.”

On April 28, it came as no surprise when the former New York Senator formally endorsed Biden on Twitter. “Wish we had @JoeBiden‘s leadership in the Oval Office right now,” she wrote, noting that “Americans deserve a president who will manage the COVID-19 crisis with the compassion, competence, and respect for science we need to save lives and revive the economy.”

Hillary’s hard work, along with many others on the campaign trail in support of then-Vice President Biden paid off. On November 7, the Trump-era in the Oval Office was finally over.

In a statement following his victory, Biden, 78, shared, “I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and Vice President-elect [Kamala] Harris. In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America. With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation,” he said, declaring, “It’s time for America to unite. And to heal. We are the United States of America. And there’s nothing we can’t do, if we do it together.”

Former FLOTUS Melania Trump is reportedly upset after seeing the warm reception Dr. Jill Biden has received in her short time in the White House that she never had.

Melania Trump left Washington, DC, behind on January 20 both physically and mentally. The former FLOTUS, 50, who had the worst public approval ratings of any first lady in modern history, has spent her time post-White House at the spa while husband Donald Trump focuses on his second impeachment trial, a source with knowledge of her schedule told CNN. It doesn’t seem like that will change anytime soon.

“She goes to the spa, has lunch, goes to the spa (again) and has dinner with Donald on the patio,” the source at Mar-a-Lago said. “Rinse and repeat. Every day.” It was clear that Trump had checked out in her last weeks in the White House, only being seen in public a handful of times. Unhappy with how his presidency ended — and the way it affected her — Trump has allegedly been “bitter and chilly” toward her husband. Especially because her successor, Dr. Jill Biden, has received a warm welcome by the public.

Trump’s most “fervent ire” was seeing Dr. Biden settle into the East Wing with ease. Within two weeks, she had over a dozen staffers happily working for her; in the last weeks of her husband’s administration, Trump’s staff was dropping out in droves. Shortly before Joe Biden‘s inauguration, a report surfaced claiming that Trump never reached out to Dr. Biden to facilitate an East Wing transition or welcome her to the White House — a tradition for most, if not all, first ladies. Trump reportedly did leave a note for Dr. Biden in the Executive Residence, but the contents of the letter weren’t publicized.

Former President Trump lamented before his Twitter account shut down that his wife never appeared on magazine covers during her four years as presidency. Less than a month after becoming first lady, Dr. Biden graced the cover of PEOPLE with her husband, the new president, and was featured in an article for Parents magazine. She also recorded a televised message with her husband that aired before Super Bowl LV.

Most recently, Twitter praised Dr. Biden’s wholesome and adorable Valentine’s Day decorations at the White House. The new FLOTUS hand-painted giant red hearts with inspirational messages and placed them on the White House lawn. Meanwhile, Trump’s Christmas decorations were mocked for looking like something out of Suspiria. Essentially, their experiences as first ladies already couldn’t be more different.

Dr. Jill Biden shared some early Valentine’s Day ‘joy’ by covering the White House lawn with hearts bearing messages of ‘kindness’ – and she couldn’t wait to show them to her husband, President Joe Biden.

In honor of her first Valentine’s Day as First Lady of the United States, Dr. Jill Biden celebrated on Friday (Feb. 12) with a surprise for her husband, President Joe Biden. Overnight, Dr. Biden, 69, had large red, white, and pink hearts installed on the North Lawn of the White House. These decorations mimicked the candy hearts given out during the holiday by bearing a specific message, like “Compassion” and “Love.” On Friday morning, President Biden, 78, and their two dogs – Champ and Major — joined his wife for a “surprise stroll,” per CNN’s Betsy Klein, where he saw the decorations for himself.

President Biden: "#ValentinesDay is a big. Jill's favorite day. For real."

Q: "What inspired you to do this?"@FLOTUS: "I just wanted some joy. With the pandemic, just everybody's feeling a little down. So, it's just a little joy. A little hope. That's all." pic.twitter.com/JW0S1cclNO

— CSPAN (@cspan) February 12, 2021

“Valentine’s Day is a big day, Jill’s favorite day,” the president told reporters as he viewed the decorations. When asked why she had the decorations put up, Dr. Biden said she wanted to bring a little holiday cheer. “I just wanted some joy, and I think just, with the pandemic, everybody’s feeling a little down, so it’s just a little joy, a little hope. That’s all.” The display reminded President Biden of a time when he was serving as Vice President to President Barack Obama. “First year…I walked into my office, and every single pane…she had taken the school-kind of paint that kids put on posterboards? She had put a heart that says ‘Joe Loves Jill.’ ”

“None of them said ‘Jill Loves Joe,’ ” joked the president. When asked how they could “extend that love story to the American people who are so down right now,” President Biden said, “Tell them there is hope. There is hope. They just have to stay strong.” That message was echoed by the words Dr. Biden had on her decorations. “Healing. Courage.  Love. Compassion. Gratitude. Peace. Amor. Strength. Kindness. Family. Unity. Love, Jill,” she posted to the official FLOTUS Instagram.

“The First Lady is known for her sense of humor, love of surprises, and celebrating traditions, especially with her family,” the office of the First Lady said in a statement, per NBC News. “Valentine’s Day has always been one of her favorite holidays. Sending messages of healing, unity, hope, and compassion, this is her Valentine to the country.”

The heartfelt display is sure to earn Dr. Biden some more kudos from her fans – and possibly aggravate the former First Lady, Melania Trump. Though Melania’s taste when it came to White House decor often resulted in mockery – and she famously dissed the Christmas decorations in a secret recording shared by her ex BFF, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff she at least made it seem like she put forth some effort when it came to the holidays. Since leaving the White House, Melania has reportedly felt a “most fervent ire” in watching Dr. Jill take to the First Lady role with ease and get universal praise while doing it.

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s new long hair was front and center in a gorgeous photo taken from her mom’s ‘British Vogue’ shoot.

As Shiloh Jolie-Pitt grows up, she continues to have a style all her own. The 14-year-old was once known for keeping the blonde locks she inherited from dad Brad Pitt clipped short. Now, she’s trying out longer hair like her sisters, Zahara and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt. Shiloh’s long hair was shown from behind in a sweet photo featured in mom Angelina Jolie‘s British Vogue shoot. The photo features Shiloh and her sisters, plus brother Knox, watching the 2020 election results with their mother. See the photo HERE.

While Shiloh now has long hair, you can see in the photo that she’s keeping it tied back in a casual ponytail. While the photo was taken in November, fans first got a good look at the new ‘do while the teen was out and about with Angelina and Zahara in January. The ladies indulged in a quick shopping trip in Los Angeles, where Shiloh rocked her high ponytail, denim shorts, a black hoodie, and Converse hi-tops. As they walked around LA, it was clear that she’s now just as tall — maybe taller — than her mother.

The British Vogue photo is absolutely wholesome. The Jolie-Pitt kids all perch on furniture in their mom’s living room while CBS News blares on the TV above the bookcase. Though none of the four kids are old enough to vote, they look enraptured while waiting to see who would win on November 3 — Donald Trump or Joe Biden. Angelina spoke about her love for her six kids — she’s also mom to sons Maddox and Pax Jolie-Pitt — and their unique style in the in-depth feature.

“I couldn’t force anything on anybody, which is part of the fun. They are all very different,” the Oscar winner gushed, adding that she thinks they’re “very” cool. “I was best friends with my mom. I loved having babies, but I love sitting up at night and talking to my kids. I like the teenage years. I like the older years. I love hanging out with them,” she said.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen stepped out for some afternoon family time, and the singer was seen carrying little Luna on his shoulders.

John Legend loves being a girl dad! The 42-year-old singer-songwriter was seen carrying his four-year-old daughter Luna on his shoulders while out with his family on January 29. He was joined by wife Chrissy Teigen, her mother Vilailuck and their two-year-old son Miles for the afternoon outing in Beverly Hills. The La La Land star cut a handsome figure in blue pants, a red leather jacket, white sneakers, and a black and red sweater. His baby girl Luna was all smiles as she rocked a pink tulle skirt and a matching pink top. The little fashionista proved she’s already taking after her mom, as she donned a pair of ballet tight and brown combat boots.

Chrissy looked ultra chic as she rocked a pair of white stilettos, which she paired with a long, black blazer, a black cropped top, and asymmetrical jeans which were cinched at the ankle. Her brunette tresses were styled into tight cornrows and she accessorized with layered gold necklaces, and bangles on her wrist. The cookbook author also carried a black leather handbag, as her mini-me son walked behind her wearing a Gucci sweater and black jeans. What a little fashionista!

It comes just one week after Chrissy shared video from Washington D.C., where John performed at Joe Biden‘s televised inaugural evening event Celebrating America. However, she got a little carried away by showing her talented hubby’s performance setting at his dress rehearsal, which she technically wasn’t allowed to do. It seems no one told Chrissy that the details of the event and it’s setting were supposed to remain a secret until the Jan. 20 prime time inaugural special!

The cookbook author said the view was “amazing” as she showed the Washington Monument lit up in the distance, and also shared a photo of a military band onstage, while John stood in a long coat in front of the band. The mother of two was so moved by it that she wrote “John! I’m going to cry” in the tweet along with the video.

Dogs are back at the White House, after Donald Trump broke the 115-year tradition. Major and Champ barked as Joe Biden signed an executive order that lifted a ban on transgender people serving in the military.

President Joe Biden has new roommates at the White House: his German shepherds Major and Champ. The new POTUS’ pooches finally left Delaware and moved into their new living quarters in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 24, four days after Biden was inaugurated into office. The dogs are already making their presence on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. known, too: they were seen happily roaming the White House’s lawn in the video below, captured by ABC News.

The First Dogs—Champ and Major—arrived at the White House on Sunday from Delaware.

Major and Champ are making sure their neighbors in America’s capital can hear them, too! They could be heard barking as Biden signed an executive order that repealed “the transgender military ban to ensure everyone who’s qualified to serve in the military can do so openly and free from discrimination” on Jan. 25, which the White House’s Twitter account announced that Monday. You can watch Biden lift the ban — and the dog barks that accompanied this celebrated action — which Donald Trump had put into effect in Aug. 2019.

People are celebrating the First Dogs’ arrival at the White House for many reasons. Major, whom the POTUS and First Lady Jill Biden officially adopted from the Delaware Humane Association in Nov. 2018, is widely believed to be the first ever shelter dog who has lived at the White House, since John Adams was the first president to first take up residence at the historical landmark in 1800.

Many citizens were delighted to see pets at the White House again, too, after Trump opted to not own any during his four-year presidency. This is extremely rare for a president to do; in fact, James K. Polk has been the only other president to not keep any pets at the White House…who held office between 1845-1849. Trump also broke a 115-year tradition of owning dogs at the White House (the last to not own dogs was William McKinley, who instead kept birds and cats).

Inviting pets into the White House wasn’t the only change Biden made during his first days as the POTUS. He also gave the Oval Office a makeover, which entailed parting ways with many of Trump’s old decorations. As you can see, Biden’s hard at work at getting rid of many signs of Trump’s time in office.

Jennifer Lopez looked stylish and toned in a white crop top under a long-sleeved pink over shirt and gray and pink patterned leggings as she walked into a Miami gym.

Jennifer Lopez, 51, was looking better than ever during her latest outing to the gym! The singer was photographed making her way inside the fitness establishment in Miami, FL on Jan. 24 while wearing an outfit that helped show off her toned abs and overall fit figure. It included a white crop top under a light pink cropped over shirt and matching gray leggings that had pink designs on them, including flowers.

She also wore black laceless sneakers, sunglasses, and a black face mask as she carried a white Birkin bag that’s estimated to cost around $18,000. The beauty had her long locks up in a high bun and was carrying her phone as she stepped through the door of the gym for her workout.

Jennifer’s gym outing comes right after she wowed fans when she recreated her 2001 music video for her song “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” in honor of the 20th anniversary of her second album J.Lo. In the clip, which she posted to Instagram, she’s walking on a beach as she tosses her designer sunglasses and expensive accessories off to the side just like she did in the original video, which was directed by Paul Hunter. “Happy 20th Anniversary to my 2nd album J.Lo!!!! Had a little fun at a recent shoot #Throwback #LoveDontCostAThing,” she wrote in the caption for the post.

Before that, she stunned with a performance at the inauguration of President Joe Biden on Jan. 20. The talented star sang “This Land Is Your Land” in front of the crowd at the West Front of the U.S. Capitol and got a sweet kiss from her fiance Alex Rodriguez, 45, when she was finished. She also gave the crowd a moving message in Spanish.

“Una nacion bajo Dios, indivisible, con libertad y justicia para todas,” she said, which in English, translates to “One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

In addition to Jennifer, Lady Gaga performed the National Anthem in front of the inauguration crowd, which also included Vice President Kamala Harris.

As Jen Psaki made her entrance in the White House with her first briefings this week, fans compared her to Darby Stanchfield’s ‘Scandal’ character, Abby Whelan. See pics of the ladies here so you can judge for yourself.

Scandal fans had to do a double take when they watched President Joe Biden‘s White House press secretary Jen Psaki, 42, give her first daily briefings at the White House this week. The redhead’s resemblance to the television show‘s red-headed character, Abby Whelan, who was played by Darby Stanchfield, 49, was quickly brought up in tweets and other social media posts when she stood behind the podium. The irony here is that Abby also had the role of White House press secretary before she became chief of staff to the fictional President Fitzgerald Grant on the series.

“Jen Psaki is giving me boring Abby Whelan vibes and I’m LOVING it,” one Twitter user wrote. “Did we get our real life Abby Whelan? Lol,” another asked.

A third fan also suggested that Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes was behind Biden’s pick of Jen to maybe try and recreate the beloved show in real life. “The new press secretary looking like Abby Whelan. I see you Shonda!” the tweet read.

After Scandal‘s fans kept tweeting about the similarities between Abby and Jen, Darby, herself took to Twitter to tweet some tips for Jen while in character and it was amazing. “Dear @PressSec, #1- If your boss forgets your name, slap a name tag on. (Fitz called me ‘Gabby’ for WEEKS Weary face) #2- Don’t get power hungry & try to get your friend killed. It won’t go well. #3- No such thing as too much hairspray. Ever,” her tweet read.

She concluded her message by signing the tweet, “Best, ‘Red’ aka Sassy Abby Whelan.”

Darby played the role of Abby on Scandal, which was about Kerry Washington‘s character Olivia Pope and her crisis management firm, from 2012 until the series’ end in 2018, and was one of the most memorable characters on the show. She has gone on to appear in the television show, Locke & Key as well as the films, Justine, Stargirl, and Mosquito.

Here’s a breakdown of the Biden family’s inauguration fashion, from the evening outfits to the colorful coats that Joe’s daughter and grandchildren wore.

Joe Biden has only been in office for two days, and his family has already taken Twitter and fashion columns by storm. The new POTUS’s daughter Ashley Biden, 39, and his grandchildren Naomi, 27, Finnegan, 20, Maisy, 19, Natalie, 16, and grandson Robert “Hunter” Biden II, 14, impressed fans with their Inauguration Day fashion on Jan. 20, which entailed monochrome winter coats for the daytime portion and sophisticated evening wear for the nighttime festivities at Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

We’ll start our fashion breakdown with Ashley. The social worker and activist ditched a dress altogether and made a powerful statement as the First Daughter of the United States in a Ralph Lauren tuxedo, complete with a bow tie and stilettos, for Inauguration Night — you can see a close-up shot below.

Meanwhile, Ashley’s nieces Naomi, Finnegan, Maisy and Natalie all wore designer dresses for the evening portion of Inauguration Day. Two of Joe’s granddaughters, Natalie and Finnegan, both wore dresses from Markarian (the same designer that their grandmother, Jill Biden, wore for the daytime ceremony). Finnegan is pictured below wearing a sparkly orange number from the high-end brand by her older sister Naomi, who looked lovely in a purple frock. Meanwhile, Hunter — who is standing to their far right — wore a classic suit and tie.

To the far left of the group shot you have Biden’s other teen granddaughter, Maisy. Like her aunt, Maisy defied traditional dress code by rocking a Rodarte print dress with Nike high-top sneakers! She is pictured standing by Natalie (in the gold dress), who’s actually a TikTok star with 1.5 million followers.

Biden’s family drew just as much attention even for the toned-down swearing in ceremony that took place at the U.S. Capitol earlier that day. Ashley opted for a sensible navy double breasted coat with a face mask in a matching color, and essentially twinned with her father as he became the 46th president of the United States (check out their matching outfits below).

Biden’s granddaughters’ outfits, however, were a different story for the daytime event. The foursome drew attention across the Internet for their monochrome winter outfits: Natalie especially stood out in a bubblegum pink coat and coordinating face mask!

Natalie’s cousins also stuck to this monochrome theme in different colors: Finnegan in peachy salmon, Maisy in navy, and Naomi in suffragette white. Even Jill coordinated with her granddaughters’ monochrome theme by having Markarian designer Alexandra O’Neill create her blue tweed coat, dress and coordinating face mask.

It’s easy to see why the Biden family got all dressed up for the big day (aside from the fact that Joe was becoming the president and replacing Donald Trump, of course). Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga performed at the daytime ceremony, and even former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama attended the historical day (you can see them standing with Naomi among the photos above). The nation’s youngest poet laureate, Amanda Gorman, also delivered a moving poem at the inauguration ceremony. The daytime event was followed by the Celebrating America television and livestream special, which Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris also delivered remarks for (for the event, Biden and his family gathered at the Lincoln Memorial, as you can see above).

“It’s been a tough time for her, to say the least,” the insider said. “Her whole family has encouraged her to slow down for a minute and they’re supporting her every way they can — everything from helping with the kids, to working out with her twice a day, to just being there for her to talk to.” Kim knows that her siblings have her back “110 percent,” so she’s heeding their advice to “take care of herself and her emotions,” they added.

A bombshell report claimed in early January that Kim was getting ready to divorce her husband of six years after having “enough” of his antics. The same day, Kim posed in a SKIMs photoshoot without her wedding ring. A separate source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians actually contributed to their marriage struggles. “Kanye has never been into doing the show, the constant paparazzi, or the cameras,” the source explained. “That was a big thing they’ve fought about for years.”

Another contributor to their alleged marital issues? Kanye’s tumultuous run for president in 2020. The rapper announced his candidacy on July 4, and quickly began a campaign that got increasingly bizarre. During a July 19 rally in South Carolina, Kanye broke down in tears while claiming that he and Kim considered aborting their daughter, North West, now seven. Kim never publicly endorsed her husband, merely tweeting out an American flag emoji. On Election Day in November, she liked a tweet about voting for Joe Biden.

As breakup rumors continue to swirl, “Type-A” Kim is “slowing down and taking some time to breathe,” just like her sisters recommended. That includes meditating and finding quiet, as well as “fun stuff” like golfing and working out, her favorite stress reliever. “It’s one of the things that’s helping her cope the most,” the source divulged. “Right now, everything for her is about finding healthy ways to cope with her stress.”

Whatever happens, the entire KarJenner family will still support Kanye, the father of Kim’s four beautiful children, the source added. “He will always be a part of her family and that is very important to Kim.” HollywoodLife reached out to Kim’s rep for comment but did not hear back as of press time.

Katy Perry closed out the ‘Celebrating America’ inaugural special by singing ‘Firework’ as real-life fireworks exploded over Washington, D.C. The pop star’s custom Thom Browne ensemble beautifully reflected the Washington Monument.

The Celebrating America inaugural special closed out with an epic fireworks display over Washington, D.C. after Joe Biden and Kamala Harris‘s inauguration on Jan. 20. So, it was only appropriate that the singer of “Firework” was chosen to perform against this pyrotechnics show: Katy Perry! The pop star looked incredible nearly five months after welcoming her first child with Orlando Bloom while singing her 2010 hit, “Firework,” by the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool and Washington Monument.

The pop star stunned in a custom ensemble from Thom Browne, and the all-white outfit reflected the Washington Monument that served as her performance’s backdrop. The high-fashion look — which featured a cashmere coat, a silk satin corset and floor-length skirt, elbow-length gloves and a creamy train of luxurious fabric — also complemented Katy’s platinum white hair. Buttons covered in red silk satin added a pop of color to Katy’s regal performance costume.

Katy followed on the heels of incredible performances from John Legend, Jon Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons, Demi Lovato, Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters, and more. Unlike these performers, though, Katy’s participation in the televised event was announced a bit last-minute.

On the eve of Inauguration Day, which fell on Jan. 19, the “Roar” singer tweeted a photo of four patriotic microphones: one looked like the Statue of Liberty’s torch; another was embellished with silver stars; the third was bedazzled to look like the United States flag; and the fourth was plain white. Although Katy kept her caption ambiguous, the Presidential Inaugural Committee retweeted the photo, making it clear that she would be joining the inauguration activities.

It’s no surprise to see that Katy was invited, though. Singing at political events isn’t new to Katy, who also performed her hits “Rise” and “Roar” at the 2016 Democratic National Convention to show her support for Hillary Clinton, who at the time was running against Donald Trump. So, Katy was understandably more than happy to sing at an event that also served as a farewell to Trump’s time in office.

Chelsea Clinton spoke candidly with Drew Barrymore about the absolute ‘sadness’ that her mother, Hillary Clinton, felt while watching the riot on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. unfold.

Chelsea Clinton opened up about how her mom, Hillary Clinton, reacted to the devastating and horrifying riot at the Capitol on January 6. Chelsea, 40, spoke with Drew Barrymore on her daytime talk show on January 7, describing the former Secretary of State and First Lady’s initial reaction to the horrifying events. “I said, ‘Mom, you have to turn on the television,’” Chelsea recalled for The Drew Barrymore Show host, referencing the phone call she made to her mom.

“There was just silence,” Chelsea said with immense sorrow, describing what she heard from her mom on the other end of the phone call. “And then so much sadness. And, also, so much anger that this was happening,” Chelsea went on. “When we spoke again later — last night — there was this real sense of, we have to hold people accountable,” she continued.

President Trump supporters storm the Capitol in Washington, D.C. [Mega].“We have to hold the insurrectionists, the terrorists, the mob who overwhelmed our Capitol [accountable]. We have to hold those individuals accountable and we have to hold the president accountable,” Chelsea went on, referencing President Donald Trump fomenting his supporters to take to Capitol Hill.

Hillary and Chelsea Clinton at “Gutsy Women” Book Signing Barnes & Noble Union Square on October 3 2019 [Mega].Chelsea went on to say that Trump “incited [his supporters], egged them on.” Although Chelsea shared the she and her mom thought it was “good” that social media platforms suspended or blocked Trump from use, it was still “insufficient, to put it mildly. We have to stop not only the amplification but the injection of hate and instability and violence that he has personified over the last [four] years.”

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump speak during the second debate between the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates on October 9, 2016 at Washington University in St. Louis [Mega].Following a rally that Trump held in Washington, D.C. on January 6, his supporters descended on the Capitol and disrupted sessions of Congress and the Senate as they voted to certify the election of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Rioters were able to get into the building where they looted and destroyed federal property. Hillary Clinton memorably ran against Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, and has since continued to support the democratic party and incoming Biden/Harris administration.

Nicki Minaj showed off her glowing, makeup-free face after having her hair styled into long waves three days before Christmas. The rapper even quoted an iconic line from Kamala Harris.

Nicki Minaj, 38, is ready to ring in the holidays in style. Before she played with Christmas-themed makeup looks, though, she went completely makeup-free while getting her hair done on Dec. 22. Nicki’s face glowed as she showed off her new long black waves courtesy of hairstylist Arrogant Tae in an Instagram video, seen below.

Nicki was excited about her new waves — so much so, she quoted a famous line from Kamala Harris. “We did it, Joe,” Nicki told her celebrity hairstylist in another video, who immediately burst into laughter. These were the same words the vice president elect told Joe Biden over the phone, shortly after he won the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 7.

Nicki is getting ready for her first Christmas with her nearly three-month-old son, Jeremiah Maraj-Petty. The “Barbie Tingz” rapper welcomed her baby boy with husband Kenneth Petty, 42, on Sept. 30 (per TMZ) and has been “loving every minute” of motherhood ever since, a source close to Nicki EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.

“Nicki and Kenneth are a team and they’re learning all about the highs and challenges of parenthood as the days go by. They really are great parents,” the insider told us in November, adding, “They love being in the thick of it all and Nicki is taking things amazingly well. Nicki knows she’s very blessed and the more time she can spend with her little one, the better.”

The past few months have been busy for Nicki, who has decided to not hop on the celebrity bandwagon of hiring a nanny to help raise her first child. “Nicki appreciates the luxuries she’s afforded, but she’s not like most celebrities, especially when it comes to her loved ones — so getting a nanny isn’t a decision she would take lightly,” another source told HollywoodLife in November. At least Nicki got to enjoy some pampering time for herself in the salon chair!

As countries roll out the vaccine for the COVID-19 novel coronavirus, some of the biggest celebrities are protecting themselves against the disease – like President-elect Joe Biden.

President-elect Joe Biden has now joined the ranks of high-profile individuals who have received the COVID-19 vaccine. The 78-year-old politician received the the Pfizer and BioNTech coronavirus vaccine, which was the first to be approved in the United States, on live TV. At a hospital in Newark, Delaware, Biden chatted with the nurse administering the vaccine and said he wanted Americans to know that it was safe. “I’m doing this to demonstrate that people should be prepared, when it’s available, to take the vaccine,” Biden said. “There’s nothing to worry about. I’m looking forward to the second shot.”

After receiving the injection, he addressed the cameras. “I want to say [that] we owe these folks an awful lot. The scientists and people who put this together. The front line workers, the ones who actually did the clinical work. It’s just amazing… we owe you big, we really do.” Biden also surprisingly gave a nod to the Trump administration. “I think that the administration deserves some credit for getting this off the ground with Operation Warp Speed,” he said, referring to the Coronavirus Task Force set up at the beginning of the pandemic.

“It’s a very special day, I feel euphoric,” Sir Ian McKellen said after receiving the first of two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at Queen Mary University Hospital in London, England, per the Evening Standard. With more than 1.65 million people dead from COVID-19, Sir Ian, 81, said it was everyone’s duty to get vaccinated and help stop the spread of the disease. “Anyone who has lived as long as I have is alive because they have had previous vaccinations, the take up amongst the older generation will be 100 percent — it ought to be — because you’re having it not just for yourself but for people who you are close to – you’re doing your bit for society.”

“Of course, it’s painless… it’s convenient, and getting in touch and meeting NHS staff and saying thank you to them for how hard they’ve been working is a bonus,” said the Lord of the Rings star. “I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. … I feel very lucky to have had the vaccine.” The United Kingdom was the first Western country to roll out the vaccine, with healthcare workers, the elderly, and people living in care homes getting inoculated at the start of December.

In addition to Sir Ian, Greatest British Bake Off judge Prue Leith, 80, and British rocker Marty Wilde, 81, also received the vaccine. “Having just had my Covid injection, I can honestly say it was an easy experience, if that’s the right word,” said Marty, who is known for being among the first generation of British pop stars to emulate rock and roll. “It was painless, and the staff were great.”

Dr. Jason Wimberly, the husband of Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks, also got the vaccine. Jason is an anesthesiologist, per Bravo, and has been helping fight COVID-19 in Charleston. “or those wondering, Jason is still standing and Bill Gates hasn’t overtaken his mind…yet. #GratefulForScience #ImJealous #VaccinesWork,” Cameran posted to Instagram on Nov. 17.

The U.S. rollout of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine began on Monday (Dec. 14), according to Buzzfeed. In America, the first person to receive the vaccine was Sandra Lindsay, a critical care nurse at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens, New York. She was vaccinated during a live press conference with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. “I hope this marks the beginning of the end of a very painful time in our history,” said Lindsay, per Buzzfeed. “I feel hopeful today. I want to instill public confidence that the vaccine is safe, we’re in a pandemic, and so we all need to do our part to put an end to the pandemic and not give up so soon.”

The COVID-19 virus has infected over 74 million people worldwide. Among those who caught the disease are musicians (Bad Bunny, Kanye West), sports stars (Cristiano Ronaldo, Lewis Hamilton), actors (Kristen Stewart, Tom Hanks), politicians (Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani), and reality TV stars (Larsa Pippen,  Khloe Kardashian). As the rollout continues, expect more and more stars to do their part and get vaccinated.

Jim Carrey took to Twitter on Dec. 19 to reveal he’s leaving behind the Joe Biden impressions he gave ‘Saturday Night Live’ viewers and we’ve got EXCLUSIVE details on what’s being planned next.

Jim Carrey, 58, shocked fans when he shared the bittersweet news that he’ll no longer be playing the role of President-elect Joe Biden, 78, in upcoming skits on Saturday Night Live, but also promised there is “a long list” of contenders ready to take his place. The comedic actor impressed viewers with his portrayal of Joe, who will soon be the 46th President of the United States, during the show’s first six episodes of the 46th season, but his role was always supposed to be limited and SNL creator Lorne Michaels is already considering other talented actors to step in next.

Though my term was only meant to be 6 weeks,I was thrilled to be elected as your SNL President…comedy’s highest call of duty. I would love to go forward knowing that Biden was the victor because I nailed that shit. But I am just one in a long line of proud, fighting SNL Bidens!

— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) December 19, 2020

“Season 46 is now looking for their new 46. Lorne and the producers loved Jim Carrey in the role of Joe Biden and always expected that they were only going to have him for a limited time,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife after the news of Jim’s departure made headlines. “Lorne has been looking to see if they could get another big-name celeb to take on the role but with Covid restrictions that has become much harder than originally expected.”

“So to get someone from the current cast to do it is now the next best option,” the source continued. “Beck Bennett is in the driver’s seat to get the part as he has been practicing being Biden. They have also considered Alex Moffat and Mikey Day to do it, but Beck is the frontrunner.”
As many SNL fans know, Beck has wowed with memorable impressions of political figures in the past, including Bill Clinton, Jeb Bush, and Mike Pence, so he could surely take on the role of Joe. Although Jason Sudeikis, who like Jim, has also impressively played Joe on SNL in the past, he’s reportedly been filming the Apple TV+ sitcom, Ted Lasso, in the UK, so it’s not clear whether or not that would stop him from returning to the role in the future.

“They have some time to figure it all out to make the final decision since this is the last SNL of the year and there are four years at least of a Biden presidency left,” the insider added. “We might find out tonight, but they are looking to open the show with a Covid vaccine sketch and/or a Tom Cruise sketch instead of a political one. They are still putting the show together so we might find out next year when they come back on who ends up with the job.”

Maya Rudolph’s Kamala Harris and Kate McKinnon’s Rudy Giuliani also made their returns to the cold open, hours after Jim Carrey confirmed he won’t be returning as Biden.

Alex Moffat, 36, has taken over the role of President-elect Joe Biden, 78. The Saturday Night Live cast member played Joe just hours after Jim Carrey, 58, confirmed he wrapped his stint for the season. Alex’s Joe appeared several minutes into the hilarious cold open, which opened with VP ‘Mike Pence‘ played by Beck Bennett ready to take the COVID-19 vaccine. Pence rocked a short sleeve shirt, he claimed, to show off his bulging muscles. While it appeared he wore the shirt for the vaccine, Beck’s VP was seemingly confused as he went to remove his trousers presumably for a shot back there.

“Before we begin, I just want to assure the American people that the vaccine is safe and harmless. Which is why Donald Trump refused to be here…he sent me to be his…,” he trailed off, as the nurse finished his sentence. “Human shield?” the nurse enquired, prompting SNL‘s Biden to note, “That’s exactly what he sent me.” He went on, “You probably noticed I’m wearing short sleeves — I’ve been lifting weights in my driveway like Kevin Spacey in American Beauty.” Maya Rudolph‘s Kamala Harris then returned, explaining she was allowed into the White House because she “got more votes.”

— Saturday Night Live – SNL (@nbcsnl) December 20, 2020

“I guess you and Joe will be in here soon IF those election results work out!” Beck’s Pence went on, as Alex then made his unexpected debut. “You look different somehow?” someone on stage inquired, taking a jab at the recast. “I’m like Colonel Sanders. A different guy every time!” Alex’s Joe reasoned, making reference Mario Lopez’s recent KFC film on Lifetime. “You’re about to have a real leader again. The most diverse cabinet in the history of American politics,” he added. Of course, the sketch wouldn’t be complete without a quick appearance by Kate McKinnon‘s Rudy Giuliani, who once again gave an excuse for having his hands down his pants.

Earlier today, Jim Carrey confirmed he wouldn’t be reprising his role as Joe Biden via Twitter. “Though my term was only meant to be 6 weeks,I was thrilled to be elected as your SNL President…comedy’s highest call of duty,” the Canadian born star posted on Dec. 19. “I would love to go forward knowing that Biden was the victor because I nailed that shit. But I am just one in a long line of proud, fighting SNL Bidens!” he added.

A source confirmed to us hours later that the show “loved” Jim’s Joe but knew it was only going to be for a short run. “Season 46 is now looking for their new 46. Lorne and the producers loved Jim Carrey in the role of Joe Biden and always expected that they were only going to have him for a limited time,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “Lorne has been looking to see if they could get another big-name celeb to take on the role but with Covid restrictions that has become much harder than originally expected,” they added.

Hunter Biden: 5 Things To Know About Joe’s Son Under Investigation For His ‘Tax Affairs’

After years of attacks by the Trump administration, Hunter Biden has announced that he is now being investigated for ‘tax affairs’. Here’s what you need to know about Joe Biden’s son.

The younger son of President-Elect Joe Biden has made headlines through the years for his partying, relationships, and business dealings. Now, Hunter Biden, 50, is back in the news after announcing on December 9 that he’s under investigation for his “tax affairs” by federal prosecutors in Delaware. Here’s what you should know about Hunter:

1. He’s being investigated by the DOJ for “tax” reasons. “I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs,” Hunter said in a statement. “I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.” Hunter, a lawyer, did not reveal any details about the probe, and the Justice Department has said they do not comment on open cases.

2. He married to Melissa Cohen after six days of dating. Hunter and Melissa, 34, quietly wed in Los Angeles in May 2019 — a complete shock, as the public didn’t know about their relationship. That’s not surprising, considering they had only been together for six days. The couple married at Melissa’s apartment in front of friends, and broke the news to their families later, following it up by getting matching tattoos. “I instantly fell in love with her. And then I’ve fallen in love with her more every day,” Hunter told ABC News in 2019. Melissa is a South African activist who co-owns a business in Los Angeles called Tribal Worlds, whose mission is to “promote indigenous conservation.” They welcomed a son in March 2020.

3. He struggled with addiction. Hunter signed up to join the Navy Reserve, but was discharged after he tested positive for cocaine in Feb. 2014. “It was the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge. I respect the Navy’s decision. With the love and support of my family, I’m moving forward,” Hunter said in a statement to CNN.

4. He’s a favorite target of Donald Trump. Prior to the 2020 election, President Trump attempted to smear Joe Biden by painting Hunter as corrupt. In late 2019, while Trump was being investigated for a quid pro quo deal with the president of Ukraine, his camp started to drum up controversy about Hunter’s business dealings with Ukrainian company Burisma. Nothing ever came from it. He’s frequently brought up Hunter’s substance addiction, as well.

5. He dated sister-in-law Hallie Biden after divorcing his 1st wife. The couple started a romantic relationship in March 2017, two years after her husband — and Hunter’s brother — Beau Biden, tragically passed away from brain cancer. Despite the complicated family dynamics with their relationship, the couple made it work for two years before their May 2019 split. “Hallie Biden and I are incredibly lucky to have found the love and support we have for each other in such a difficult time, and that’s been obvious to the people who love us most,” Hunter told Page Six in a statement in March 2017. “We’ve been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way.” The couple have not commented on their breakup thus far.

Hunter and his ex-wife, Kathleen Biden finalized their divorce in April 2017 after separating in 2015. While the split was apparently amicable, the proceedings were messy. Hunter was a no-show to court, and Kathleen was seen sobbing outside the courthouse after telling the judge why she and Hunter wanted a divorce after 22 years of marriage. Kathleen and Hunter have three children together: Finnegan, Maisy and Naomi, named after Hunter and Beau’s late sister. Hallie had two children with Beau before he passed away: Natalie and Hunter.

Legendary wrestler Dan Gable appeared to be at a loss for words when President Donald Trump left him and his family in the Oval Office shortly after presenting him with the Medal of Freedom, and Twitter took notice.

President Donald Trump, 74, caused mayhem on Twitter after he abruptly left the Oval Office not too long after presenting Dan Gable, 72, one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, with the impressive Medal of Freedom on Dec. 7. During the ceremony, Trump made a speech about Gable and all his achievements as the two-time NCAA Division I national champion and a big group of his family members, including his energetic grandkids who laid on the floor at one point, stood beside him and listened. After the medal was placed around Gable’s neck, Trump answered a few questions from reporters about the status of Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani‘s health after he was diagnosed with COVID-19 before he thanked Gable and his family and walked out of the office.

Once videos of Trump’s exit made their way around Twitter, users were quick to mock him for the awkward moment, which caused Gable to lift his hands up and shrug in confusion. “This is unreal. Trump abruptly walked out of Dan Gable’s Medal of Freedom ceremony today, leaving Gable shrugging and at a complete loss about what he was supposed to do,” one tweet read.

“We have officially hit an all time low… Trump wandered out of his own office and left Medal of Freedom recipient — Dan Gable — standing there wondering what to do next. What a selfish person… I’m embarrassed for him. This is pathetic right, it’s not just me?” another read.

“Today @realDonaldTrump wandered out of his own office and left Medal of Freedom recipient, Dan Gable, standing there with no clue what to do. ‘More Presidential than anyone in history’,” a third user shared.

In addition to Trump’s abrupt exit during Gable’s ceremony, another moment that caused controversy on social media was when he boasted about his own political record while listing Gable’s achievements. “He won 117 consecutive [wrestling] matches and lost only one, well you know, in politics, I won two. So I’m 2-0. And that’s pretty good too,” Trump said during his speech. Twitter users immediately clapped back with tweets reminding their followers that Joe Biden has been announced the President-elect, which would leave Trump with just one win.

— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) December 7, 2020

“These moments where he speaks off the cuff in public must be the most cringe-worthy, uncomfortable periods in the history of the White House. This man has zero control of himself,” one user wrote in response to Trump’s words.

“Wow. He is absolutely delusional. Maybe he meant 0-2. Since he has never won a popular vote,” another pointed out.

Cecily Strong also returned as Rudy’s star witness Melissa Carone, complete with a cocktail in hand — which she alleged was the ‘vaccine’ for COVID-19!

Kate McKinnon, 36, slayed in Saturday Night Live‘s cold open as former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, 76! Rep. Matt Hall called the senate to order (and one of the “great horrors” of his life) as the Michigan hearing started. “It’s great to be in the court room where I’m not the defendant…honestly, I’m just happy to be in doors…as my associate will explain, this was stolen was by a level of trickery not seen in Houdini,” Kate’s Rudy declared.

“But we’re going to turn this over in states like Georgia-valynia, North de Canada…but today I’ve got some highly intelligent, barely intoxicated individuals to tell the truth,” he went on, seemingly confused by the names of the states he’s ‘investigating.’ First up? Cecily Strong as Melissa Carone, who went viral for her testimony last week. “I promise to tell my whole story and nothing but my story…I have been threatened. I’m not lying, I’ve signed an after-David…that’s right. David signed, then I signed,” she explained to the confused room. Of course, the real-life Michigan hearings happened earlier this week amidst allegations Donald Trump, 74, is making about voter fraud in the election after Joe Biden, 78, won.

Heidi Gardner‘s witness then appeared with a bizarre confession of her own. “Well your honor, I’m not proud of this — but see, I ate ballots,” she revealed, puzzling the room once again. “That’s right, I didn’t mean to — but the demo-crats pulled up at lunch time with a food truck and it was full of ballot pizza, ballot sandwiches, ballot spaghetti,” she added. We’re going to guess that didn’t go down very well on the stomach.

Cecily Strong made her return to the ‘SNL’ stage alongside Kate McKinnon.

Cecily’s Melissa then came back to blame the “dominion” for cheating. “Well, for starters, they cheated me out of my cheesy bread,” she claimed, as others pointed out she appeared to be confused between Domino’s Pizza and the dominion. As if that wasn’t enough, she pulled out a martini while on the stand — claiming it was actually the COVID-19 “vaccine.” Kate’s Rudy didn’t seem to mind with her glass of scotch, noting that she’s gotta drink every 15 minutes or will “explode.” For a final witness, “Nicole Kidman” appeared as her character from The Undoing (actually Chloe Fineman) in defense of her on-screen husband Hugh Grant, who she said was “too hot” and “too white” to be guilty.”

Jim Carrey‘s Joe Biden and Maya Rudolph‘s Kamala Harris have also been nailing the political segments on Saturday Night Live! The pair been epic since the October premiere of SNL, nailing their impressions of the now President-elect and Vice President-elect. The duo were front and center in the last episode of the sketch series, which happened mere hours after the real-life Joe and Kamala’s historic win. “I honestly kinda can’t [believe I won]. It’s been so long since something good happened…we kept edging closer and closer, it was like having sex with Sting! I’ve never felt so alive and I’m barely alive,” Jim’s Joe joked, humble as ever.

Impressively, SNL recreated the real Kamala’s all-white suit for the sketch! The chic outfit was a nod to the Suffrage movement, which hit its 100th anniversary this year. “Like Joe, I am humbled and honored to be the first female — yes — the first Black, the first Indian American, and the first bi-racial Vice President,” Maya’s Kamala declared, going on to slay with a hilarious (and on-point) joke. “If any of that terrifies you, I don’t give a funt. My husband is also Jewish and the first second husband, so between us, we check more boxes than a disqualified ballot,” she added, referencing Kamala’s husband Doug Emhoff.

Joe Biden reportedly twisted his ankle this weekend while playing with his German Shepherd, Major, and is getting checked out by an orthopedist ‘out of an abundance of caution’.

Joe Biden, 78, had a little mishap while taking part in a fun activity with his dog and now Twitter is sending him love. The president-elect was playing with his German Shepherd, Major on Saturday, Nov. 28, when he ended up twisting his ankle, his team said, according to TMZ. No further details about the injury were released, but he is apparently set to get checked out by an orthopedist “out of an abundance of caution” on Sunday.

Reporters weren’t allowed to see Joe going in or out of the doctor’s office, per his team’s request, the outlet further reported.

Soon after news of the injury made its way on social media, Joe’s supporters took to Twitter to post their well wishes to him through kind words and light-hearted jokes. “Sending positive thoughts to our President-elect @JoeBiden for a speedy recovery from an ankle injury!” one tweet read. “If one must twist an ankle, this is the way to do it. Heal up quickly, 46! @JoeBiden,” another read.

“Prayers to you Mr. President-Elect @JoeBiden for quick healing to your ankle. No fault Major, we love you @First_Dogs_USA,” a third user tweeted while a fourth wrote, “The fact that Joe Biden slipped and twisted his ankle while playing with his dog makes me love him even more than I already did.” Another shared a similar sentiment when they tweeted, “While playing with his dog. Besides his twisted ankle I could not love this more. I hope your ankle heals soon.”

Joe’s ankle injury comes after it was announced that his dog, Major, will be the first rescue dog to ever live in the White House when he starts his presidential term in Jan. Major, who can be seen in the video below, is one of two German Shepherds Joe and his wife Jill Biden, 69, own and they adopted him from the Delaware Humane Society in 2018. Their other dog, Champ, has been with them since 2008.

Joe has publicly showed his love for his two pooches on social media many times in the past, including on Aug. 26, International Dog Day, in 2019. “Happy #InternationalDogDay from Major and camera-shy Champ!” he tweeted along with a pic of him and Jill smiling with the sweet boys. He also shared a pic of him and one of his dogs in a presidential campaign ad just days before the election with a caption that read, “Let’s put dogs back in the White House.”

Since President Donald Trump has no pets, Joe’s dogs will be the first pets back in the White House since Barack Obama‘s dogs, Bo and Sunny, lived there during his two presidential terms from 2009-2016.

Sharon Stone shared a new photo of herself looking amazing in an outfit that showed off her incredible figure as she sat on the arm of a couch and flashed a gorgeous smile to the camera.

Sharon Stone, 62, left her fans in awe when she took to Instagram to post a brand new photo of herself looking half her age in a black bodysuit! The actress wore an open silky blue, brown, and white button-down shirt over the bodysuit and a pair of yellow heels in the pic as she sat on the arm of a couch and lifted one arm up. She happily tilted her head back while flaunting her short blonde locks and smiling at the camera, and a large pic of Marilyn Monroe could be seen hanging in the background.

“My friend and brilliant stylist @paris_libby sent me this today. I am not only astounded but grateful that I am still modeling at 62, La Dolce Vita , Thx to everyone who hired me this year. Ss,” Sharon captioned the stunning photo.

Her fans were quick to compliment her once she posted the photo and their comments proved just how much of an inspiration the iconic star is. “No way are you 62. What!” one follower wrote while another gushed, “You’re a legend, Sharon.” A third wrote, “Still looking beautiful” and a fourth said, “Still the ultimate queen of ‘Sexy’ you defined the word. 🙌🏼👌🏼❤️ Go Girl..! X”

Before her latest pic, Sharon wowed in a different makeup-free pic she posted back in July. In it, she flaunted her new quarantine haircut as she smiled into the camera and thanked her hair stylist in the caption. “Thanks so much for my happy haircut Adir! @hairbyadir,” it read.

When Sharon isn’t inspiring her followers with her fresh-faced snapshots, she’s speaking out on important issues, like her sister, Kelly and brother-in-law, Bruce‘s battle with the coronavirus. She announced that Kelly and Bruce contracted the virus despite social distancing and wearing protective gear in Aug. and encouraged her fans to vote for Joe Biden in the Nov. presidential election to try and put a stop to the spread. She also showed scary photos of Kelly’s hospital room.

“One of you Non-Mask wearers did this,” she wrote in the caption. “She does not have an immune system. The only place she went was the pharmacy. There is no testing in her county unless you are symptomatic, & then it’s five day wait for results. Can YOU FACE THIS ROOM ALONE? Wear a mask! For yourself and others. Please.”

Ed Norton didn’t hold back while listing out the reasons why Donald Trump’s corruption runs deeper than just wanting to ‘make his base happy.’ The actor called him ‘whiny and vindictive.’

Ed Norton called out Donald Trump on Twitter in a scathing seven-tweet rant, condemning the president’s behavior after the 2020 election was called for Joe Biden. Calling him “whiny, sulky, and petulant,” Norton attacked Trump’s “desperate endgame” and shared some political insights he had learned from his father, a former federal prosecutor. “He taught me a lot and I’ve also sat a fair amount of poker [with] serious players, and l’ll say this: I do not think Trump is trying to ‘make his base happy’ or ‘laying the groundwork for his own network’ or that ‘chaos is what he loves,’” Norton tweeted. “The core of it is that he knows he’s in deep, multi-dimensional legal jeopardy and this defines his every action.”

…or that ‘chaos is what he loves’. The core of it is that he knows he’s in deep, multi-dimensional legal jeopardy & this defines his every action. We’re seeing 1) a tactical delay of the transition to buy time for coverup & evidence suppression 2) above all, a desperate endgame

— Edward Norton (@EdwardNorton) November 20, 2020

His ‘turn card’ bluff will be an escalation & his ‘River card’ bluff could be really ugly. But they have to be called. We cannot let this mobster bully the USA into a deal to save his ass by threatening our democracy. THAT is his play. But he’s got junk in his hand. So call him.

— Edward Norton (@EdwardNorton) November 20, 2020

Biden won the presidential election on November 7 after four exhausting days of ballot counting. Trump has refused to concede, and is actively pursuing lawsuits in a number of states, including Michigan and Pennsylvania where he alleges that widespread voter fraud occurred. Biden won more votes than any other presidential candidate in United States history, and there is no evidence of voter fraud. Trump is now actively rejecting the results of an election he lost fair and square and attempting a coup.

“We’re seeing 1) a tactical delay of the transition to buy time for coverup and evidence suppression. 2) above all, a desperate endgame which is to create enough chaos and anxiety about peaceful transfer of power, & fear of irreparable damage to the system, that he can cut a Nixon-style deal in exchange for finally conceding,” Norton tweeted. He compared it to Trump being dealt a bad hand of cards. Americans need to call his bluff.

But his contemptible, treasonous, seditious assault on the stability of our political compact isn’t about 2024, personal enrichment or anything else other than trying to use chaos & threat to the foundation of the system as leverage to trade for a safe exit. Call. His. Bluff.

— Edward Norton (@EdwardNorton) November 20, 2020

Faith in the strength of our sacred institutions & founding principles is severely stretched…but they will hold. They will. He’s leaving, gracelessly & in infamy. But if we trade for it, give him some brokered settlement, we’ll be vulnerable to his return. We can’t flinch.

— Edward Norton (@EdwardNorton) November 20, 2020

 

Norton really didn’t mince words when he went on to describe Trump as “a whiny, sulky, petulant, Grinchy, vindictive little 10-ply-super-soft b***h who no doubt is just throwing a wicked pout fest and trying to give a tiny-hand middle finger to the whole country for pure spite, without a single thought for the dead and dying… His contemptible, treasonous, seditious assault on the stability of our political compact isn’t about 2024, personal enrichment or anything else other than trying to use chaos and threat to the foundation of the system as leverage to trade for a safe exit.”

The Fight Club star concluded by stressing that although Trump will be out of the White House in January — even if he goes kicking and screaming — Americans shouldn’t let their guard down. If we “give him some brokered settlement, we’ll be vulnerable to his return. We can’t flinch,” he tweeted.

Barack Obama Jokes That Navy Seals Can Be ‘Sent In’ To Remove Donald Trump From The White House On ‘Jimmy Kimmel’

Barack Obama Jokes That Navy Seals Can Be ‘Sent In’ To Remove Donald Trump From The White House On ‘Jimmy Kimmel’

Barack Obama proved he knows how to use a Navy Seal team when it came to taking out Osama Bin Laden. Now he’s joking that the elite soldiers might be needed to remove Donald Trump from the White House.

Despite the 2020 presidential election being called for Joe Biden on Nov. 7, Donald Trump is still refusing to concede and making false claims of voter fraud. His predecessor President Barack Obama is now joking about what it will take to get Trump to leave the White House if he refuses to go willingly come Jan. 20, 2021, which is Biden’s inauguration date. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Nov. 19, Jimmy Kimmel asked the former POTUS if there was “a place somebody could hide in the White House if they knew they were going to be removed” — and Obama’s response was hysterical. “Well, I think we can send some navy seals in to dig him out,” he replied.

Then-President Obama famously used the Navy’s Seal Team Six to carry out the raid on terrorist Osama bin Laden‘s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan on May 2, 2011, killing the 9-11 mastermind. While Trump of course isn’t a murderous foreign terrorist, some are beginning to wonder legitimately what will happen if he refuses to commit to a peaceful transition of power, as all presidents have done throughout history. So far Trump has done all he can to obstruct and delay any transition to Biden’s team, and continues to make denials that Biden won the election. Even former First Lady Michelle Obama has begged Trump to honor the respectful transition of power.

So that’s why his new book is so long! 🤣🤣🤣 @BarackObama on Kimmel tonight! pic.twitter.com/hhxTE0qBIj

— Jimmy Kimmel Live (@JimmyKimmelLive) November 19, 2020

Obama appeared on Kimmel to promote his memoir A Promised Land. Jimmy noted that the book is 701 pages long, and asked if the 58-year-old did that on purpose to that the infamously reading-averse Trump wouldn’t pick it up. “You know I don’t think it would have had to be 700 pages,” for that to happen, Obama joked in return.

This marked the first stop on our 44th president’s  video book tour for his memoir, showing us what a dignified, intelligent and humorous POTUS we had for two terms. During his interview with Kimmel, Obama cracked jokes, told stories about his eight years of life in the White House and got asked the question if he and Michelle “made love” on the night the of the successful raid that killed bin Laden. Oh yeah, Jimmy went there!

Obama’s memoir went on sale on Nov. 17, 2020 and should be heading straight to the top of the non-fiction best-sellers list for some time to come. His wife Michelle’s memoir Becoming was the top selling book of 2018 after only 15 days on the market, moving two million copies in just over two weeks following its release on Nov. 13, 2018. Within five months it had gone on to sell over 10 million copies worldwide, and became one of the best selling memoirs of all time. While that is a hard act to follow, Barack Obama is probably one of the only people alive whose memoir could overtake wife Michelle’s monster numbers. What a power couple!

 

50 Cent Claims Trump Campaign Offered Him $1M For Support After Alleging Lil Wayne Accepted Cash Deal

50 Cent Claims Trump Campaign Offered Him $1M For Support After Alleging Lil Wayne Accepted Cash Deal

The Trump campaign was willing to pay a pretty penny for 50 Cent’s support, the rapper alleged on ‘The View’ — and claimed that Lil Wayne took the deal.

50 Cent doubled down on his claim that Lil Wayne was paid off by the Trump campaign during his November 18 appearance on The View, claiming that he was offered money to support the president, as well. “I think the timing of it — for me, they offered $500,000 and went up to $1 million to attend the inauguration,” the rapper, 45, said. “In Wayne’s case, they were looking for people to publicly support [Donald Trump] in different ways.”

The For Life star believes that Trump asking for his support was “absolutely” an attempt by the Trump campaign to gain the Black male vote before the November 2020 presidential election, doubling down on what he said on The Breakfast Club the day prior: “[Trump] was needing it for the same reasons you see now,” Fiddy told Charlamagne Tha God. “He participated with different artists for the Black vote. And I’m going, ‘nah, I ain’t gonna put myself in that position.’ Cause I don’t know what I’d have to do to recover from that.”

He got a small taste of what that would’ve been like when he seemingly endorsed Trump on Instagram prior to the election by bashing Joe Biden‘s tax plans. He quickly recanted and clarified that he was voting for Biden after massive backlash from fans — and his ex-girlfriend, Chelsea Handler. Chelsea told 50 Cent that he used to be her “favorite ex,” and would sleep with him again if he’d denounce Trump. He immediately tweeted, “F**k Donald Trump, I never liked him.”

Wayne shocked his fans by posing for a photo with Trump, which he posted to Twitter on October 29. He touted Trump’s “Platinum Plan,” which would allegedly provide $500 billion in capital to Black communities. Wayne was roundly skewered after sending the tweet. Some fans speculated that it was the reason he and girlfriend Denise Bidot split. His daughter, Reginae Carter, publicly supported Biden.

And Fiddy joked that Wayne should get Trump to bail him out of jail when he was pressed with federal firearm charges. HollywoodLife has reached out to the Trump campaign and Lil Wayne’s rep for comment on this story, but did not hear back as of press time.

Madonna has shared a rare video of her kids David and Mercy practicing their TikTok dance moves to a song by JuiceWrld and The Weeknd.

It seems Madonna‘s kids have inherited her dancing skills! The 62-year-old pop icon rarely shares much on social media about her children, but took to Instagram on November 14 to post a video of her son David, 15, and daughter Mercy, 14, practicing their moves. “It’s A Vibe,” the “Material Girl” hitmaker captioned the carousel post. First up was a video of the duo busting a move to “Smile” by JuiceWrld and The Weeknd. Mercy wore a red dress with a floral pattern, a matching bandana and plenty of gold jewelry.

Her big brother donned a white, long-sleeved top, blue pants and a brown belt. He also rocked glasses and some gold accessories including a necklace and watch. The pair have clearly been spending some time on TikTok as they expertly pulled off a series of popular moves while dancing around a bedroom. The second photo in the carousel post showed Mercy with her braided hair in two pigtails as she made a surprised face at the camera.

The teenager wore a black Nike sweater and a yellow bandana around her head. The third shot showed David sitting on a front lawn eating a wrap and a salad. He donned a black graphic tee, black and grey sweatpants, colorful orange socks, and yellow croc-style shoes. While the siblings are too young to vote, their mom proudly revealed she officially voted in the 2020 election on Oct. 11.

“The 3 faces of a girl who just voted,” Madonna captioned a carousel post of selfies. “Get out there and take responsibility people!!” She also shared the hashtag #BidenHarris2020, making it clear that she voted for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the election. The Grammy winner’s family has grown exponentially over the years. She gave birth to her first child, Lourdes Leon, in October 1996 with fitness trainer Carlos Leon. Madonna then welcomed son Rocco Ritchie with ex-husband Guy four years later. Lastly, she added four more to her brood by adopting David, Mercy, and twins Stella and Estere.

Sophie Turner is one stylish new mama. She changed out of sweats and wore a pinstripe black blazer while taking her baby daughter Willa out for a walk with husband Joe Jonas.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas have made sure that their three-month-old daughter Willa gets plenty of daily doses of mother nature and fresh air. The couple regularly take their little one on strolls around their neighborhood, which is also a great way for the 24-year-old actress and the 31-year-old singer to get some sunshine and exercise as well. On Nov. 13 the pair cut stylish figures while pushing Willa in her baby buggy, with Sophie losing her usual look of sweats for the walk.

Sophie wore a chic black blazer with white pinstripes as she pushed Willa’s buggy. The former Game of Thrones star paired it with a dark grey undershirt and leggings for a fashionable yet casual stroll. Sophie wore comfy trainers on her feet and had her blonde locks pulled up in a high ponytail with a small black scrunchie. Despite the presidential election being nine days prior and already declared in Joe Biden‘s favor on Nov. 7, she still wore her black face mask with the word “vote” written all across it.

Joe looked chic in a white t-shirt with a matching windbreaker over it. The jacket featured colorful bright cartoon faces across it with bright smiles and exaggerated noses. The DNCE member wore faded jeans and black Chuck Taylor style sneakers as he walked alongside his wife and baby girl. His dyed pink hair from early October is now gone, and Joe is back to rocking his natural brunette locks, which are still in a short buzzcut.

At one point the pair stopped and each seemed to reach into the buggy to give attention to their little one. A lavender blanket with magenta and purple patterns covered the buggy’s top to protect Willa from the bright L.A. sun, as well as any intrusive paparazzi lenses. While the couple seem to be okay with being spotted on their daily walks, they’ve remained guarded about their little girl. The pair has yet to share a photo of Willa to the world since her July 22, 2020 birth.

Sophie has to be happy with the outcome of the U.S. election. She let the world know she was a huge fan of Kamala Harris, 56, with an Aug. 12 Instagram photo shortly after now President-Elect Biden announced her selection as his running mate. The actress wrote, “My heart is so full…this is big,” in the caption showing a smiling Harris, who has become our nation’s first female, first Black and first Asian-American Vice President-Elect. On Nov. 7 when the election was called in favor of the Biden-Harris ticket, Sophie shared a photo of the pair with their arms raised in victory with a heart emoji as her caption.

Douglas Emhoff is set to become America’s first second gentleman after Joe Biden was declared the next President and his wife, Kamala Harris was declared the next Vice President on Nov. 7. Learn more about the loving and supportive husband here.

Lawyer Douglas Emhoff is making history as the first second gentleman of the United States. His new title was confirmed after Democratic nominee Joe Biden was projected to be the President-elect and Douglas’s wife, California Sen. Kamala Harris, was projected to be the Vice President-elect in the 2020 presidential election on Nov. 7. Kamala — born of Jamaican and Indian immigrant parents — is also making history as America’s first female, Black and South-Asian vice president.

So proud of you. ❤️❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/Orb1ISe0dU

— Doug Emhoff (@DouglasEmhoff) November 7, 2020

Ready to work! Let’s go @DrBiden! https://t.co/mY4lJhElbb

— Doug Emhoff (@DouglasEmhoff) August 11, 2020

Shortly after Joe and Kamala’s victory was announced, Douglas took to Twitter to share a sweet photo of himself giving his lady love a big hug after she found out the wonderful news. “So proud of you,” he wrote in the caption along with two red heart and two American flag emojis.

He was also by Kamala’s side later that night when she and Joe gave their first speeches as President-elect and Vice President-elect in Delaware. He confidently held her hand and waved to the in-person crowd after the amazing night and Joe even called the happy couple “family” during his epic time addressing the nation. “Kamala, Doug, like it or not, you’re family. You’ve become an honorary Biden, there’s no way out,” he said with a smile.

Ever since Joe revealed Kamala was his VP pick in Aug., Douglas vowed to be “ready to work” as the Nov. 3 Election Day drew closer and closer, and that’s exactly what he did. So, who’s the lucky man that gets to be Kamala’s husband? Here’s the answer to that question below:

1. Kamala’s husband has worked in law for more than 25 years. Douglas shares a love for law with Kamala. He attended University of Southern California’s Gould School of Law, and is now a partner at DLA Piper (a global law firm). “He represents large domestic and international corporations and some of today’s highest profile individuals and influencers in complex business, real estate and intellectual property litigation disputes,” Douglas’s bio reads on the law firm’s website.

2. Douglas also specializes in entertainment law. One of his clients included TBWA, the ad agency which developed the Taco Bell Chihuahua. This led Wrench, a company based in Michigan, to sue Taco Bell over breach of contract because it claimed to have created the “Psycho Chihuahua,” according to Douglas’s profile in The Hollywood Reporter. Douglas kept TBWA from taking on the financial burden of this lawsuit bill.

3. Douglas met Kamala through a blind date. Before Kamala entered his life, Douglas was married to a woman named Kerstin whom he welcomed two children with (a son named Cole, who graduated from Colorado College in 2017, and their daughter Ella, who is studying at Parsons School of Design, according to a 2018 Vogue article).

After Douglas divorced from Kerstin, he was a single dad who was eventually set up on a blind date with Kamala by PR consultant Chrisette Hudlin in 2013, according to his aforementioned profile in THR. It was a great idea, because Douglas and Kamala were married by 2014. Kamala now even has a close relationship with Douglas’s children, as well as her husband’s ex-wife!

Happy Birthday @KamalaHarris⁩! You are always there for us with a big hug, bright smile, infectious laugh and just the right words, all with delicious food and an amazing soundtrack! We love you so so much (and are VERY proud of you)! Doug, Cole & Ella. pic.twitter.com/7evystcTz1

— Doug Emhoff (@DouglasEmhoff) October 20, 2018

“They [Douglas’s kids] are my endless source of love and pure joy. I am so thankful to Doug, to Kerstin, and most of all, to Ella and Cole,” the senator wrote in an Elle essay for Mother’s Day 2019. Douglas and his two children even posed for a sweet photo to share on Kamala’s 54th birthday in Oct. 2018, which you can see above.

#GetUpStandUp2020 for ⁦@JoeBiden⁩ was so much fun! Over 3000 friends attended and over $1mil raised. Let’s keep up this energy all the way to November! pic.twitter.com/oxcWsSMMVf

— Doug Emhoff (@DouglasEmhoff) July 10, 2020

4. Douglas is Kamala’s #1 cheerleader and put his career on hold to campaign for her and Joe. He is often seen by the senator’s side at events, repping her “Kamala” T-shirt and his Twitter page is basically a fan account for Kamala, where he often retweets her posts and television appearances. He also shares sneak peeks into their married life, such as this fireworks date. His presence in her and Joe’s presidential campaign didn’t go unnoticed and he proved he would go above and beyond to support his wife and her opportunity to become vice president.

From spending his 56th birthday asking for votes in Virginia parking lots to greeting potential voters in his Biden-Harris gear in such a low-key way that most people didn’t realize who he was, he has been there for Kamala when she was running for president and then vice president, and his dedication has never wavered. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.), who has campaigned with Emhoff, even called him an election-year “sensation”, the Washington Post reported.

Last one… pic.twitter.com/K5hTR3eWav

— Doug Emhoff (@DouglasEmhoff) July 1, 2020

5. The lawyer considers himself an “advocate for justice and equality.” Douglas has lived up to his Twitter bio by being a champion for multiple causes, like the Black Lives Matter movement and LGBTQ rights. He even attended San Francisco Pride in 2019, where he jumped up on the backseat of a car with Kamala and busted out his best dance moves for the crowd (which you can enjoy above).

Suri Cruise, the teenage daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, was among the thousands of New Yorkers who took to the streets after Joe Biden’s triumph over Donald Trump.

It’s clear that Katie Holmes is raising her teenage daughter Suri Cruise with great morals! The 14-year-old, who has spent all of her life in the public eye, took to the streets of New York City on November 7 to celebrate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris‘ historic win. She was joined by her friends, who were among the thousands that celebrated Donald Trump‘s defeat with an impromptu party that lit up all corners of the city.

The teen rocked a pink top which was left unbuttoned around her midsection, along with dark wash jeans, white sneakers, and a blue protective face mask. In photos from the day, she was seen raising her hand in the air triumphantly, as she celebrate alongside thousands of other New Yorkers.

Later than evening, Joe and Kamala both delivered rousing speeches in front of a sea of supporters in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware.“We’re reminded tonight of those who fought so hard for so many years to make this happen. Once again America has bent the arc of the universe more toward justice,” Joe said. He also acknowledged that the African American community played a major role in helping him get elected. He said they’ve “always” had his back, so he’ll have theirs, too.

Joe went on to promise he would unify the country and work on a plan to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic which has affected the US for most of 2020. “This is the time to heal in America … That [COVID-19] plan will be built on bedrock science. It will be constructed out of compassion, empathy and concern.” He added, “I am a proud democrat but I will govern as an American President,” he further promised, and added, “We will lead not only by the example of our power but by the power of our example … I believe in the possibilities of this country. We’re always looking ahead, ahead to an America that’s freer and more just.”

Iggy Azalea showed off her amazing post-baby figure while sending a political message about the presidential election by cheekily lip-syncing and dancing in a new TikTok video.

Iggy Azalea, 30, is looking incredible in her latest TikTok video! The new mom shared a little presidential election joy when she shared the post, which showed her rocking a long-sleeved sheer pink top and matching pink short shorts as she lip-synced to a sound clip stating Joe Biden‘s presidential win before it was declared he was elected on Nov. 6. “Repeat after me, Biden is soon to be your daddy, hahahahahaha,” she mouthed in the clip while at one point, even cheekily flipping the camera off before giving it a shocked look.

The blonde beauty’s long locks were straight and down in the video and she was wearing large hoop earrings, pink eyeshadow, pink lipstick, and even pink nails. She flaunted her stunning figure by doing a front twerk dance move and looked as confident as could be.

Just one day before her latest video, Iggy got attention for a different dancing clip that she posted to her Instagram Story. In it, she was wearing a skintight purple maxi dress as she swayed back and forth to music that was playing. She had her hair down like her recent post and added the perfect glowing filter to the clip.

Iggy’s post-baby videos come after she secretly gave birth to her son, Onyx, whom she shares with Playboi Carti, 24. The Australian announced the big news that she was now a mother in a June 10 Instagram post but kept his face away from the spotlight until recently. She revealed his face in two photos she posted on Oct. 24 and he was definitely a cute sight to see!

In the pics, the loving mom is holding the precious tot at two separate times. She’s wearing black outfits in both and is sporting a smile as the dark-haired cutie looks straight into the camera like a natural. She only captioned the post with a baby angel emoji but didn’t need to say anything since the mother and son moments were enough to melt the hearts of her many followers!
