Yesterday, Liam Payne (sort of) went full frontal on Instagram.

Today, fellow One Direction member Zayn Malik made even more waves online; not by taking his clothes off, but by showing support for Palestine in its endless bloody conflict with Israel.

Like others such as Rihanna have done before him, Malik Tweeted #FreePalestine yesterday evening, taking a controversial stance in a war that continues to claim more and more lives each day.

Unlike Rihanna, however, Malik did not delete the Tweet as soon as backlash arose.

And that backlash surely has arisen.

Sarah Palin is giving the people what they want (or want they want to be up in arms about) by starting her own subscription-based online network.

The Sarah Palin Channel, which went live on Sunday, bills itself as a "direct connection" between the former Alaska governor and her supporters.

Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, vows on her homepage that the new political channel has "no need to please the powers that be."

"Are you tired of the media filters?" Palin asks. "Well, I am."

"I always have been. We're gonna do something about it," she adds, promising, "we'll talk about the issues that the mainstream media won't talk about.

Palin says she will oversee all content on the channel, which is either a good or a bad thing depending on how you view Sarah (to state the obvious).

By now, it's all but guaranteed that Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016. She's a virtual lock to receive the Democratic nomination and she's the current front-runner to succeed Barack Obama in the highest office in the land.

If the details revealed in a new tell-all book turn out to be true, however, Hillary's most important political ally could turn out be her biggest liability.

The book is titled The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents, and according to those who have received advance copies, author Ronald Kessler hits the Clintons the hardest.

Kessler reportedly makes some shocking claims about Bill's still very active sex life - specifically with regard to the 42nd president's frequent liaisons with a busty blonde mistress nicknamed "Energizer."

Selena Gomez has made her opinion known on the raging conflict in the Middle East.

Writing on Instagram that "It's About Humanity," Selena posted the controversial message last night for folks to "Pray for Gaza" in regard to the ongoing battle being waged between Israel and Palestine in that region.

Gomez is the latest star to weigh in on this difficult topic, with Rihanna (accidentally, she claims) Tweeting "Free Palestine" earlier in the week, only for the message to be quickly deleted.

But Selena isn't backing off.

Earlier this week, Rihanna caused quite the online kerfuffle when she Tweeted #FreePalestine.

The singer quickly deleted the message, with sources somehow saying she didn't mean to send it in the first place.

We're not sure how that's possible, but we're are sure Rihanna isn't the first celebrity to get into trouble for posting on Twitter.

Heck, she wasn't the first celebrity to Tweet about freeing Palestine this month alone, with Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard writing the same words online before also taking them down.

What other stars have regretting getting into politics over the Internet? We rundown several cases below and come to the same conclusion each time: stick to acting... or singing... or whatever it is you do, Kim Kardashian.

Leave the politics to the politicians.

Rihanna claims she never meant to Tweet #FreePalestine. The message was taken down immediately after going up.

Former political figure Sarah Palin is calling for President Barack Obama to be impeached in an op-ed quickly seized upon by every wannabe comedian on Twitter.

Palin's scathing indictment on Breitbart, in which she likens Obama to an abusive husband and America to his battered wife, set the Internet ablaze.

Reactions on both sides then threw gasoline on it.

  • You Betcha
  • President Obama in Rome

In her view, it's Obama’s diabolical plan to have Mexicans take jobs from Americans, so as to strengthen his hold on power, and he should be ousted as a result.

While Sarah has plenty of fans who would love to see Obama out of office, an overwhelming majority of Tweets about her comments have been ... well ...

Given her choice of words, questionable grasp of facts and the fact that it's Sarah Palin, her condemnation of the "imperial" Obama sparked widespread ridicule:

Some choice reactions after the jump:

Former President Warren G. Harding, the 29th man to hold America's highest office, would have made rapper Warren G proud with these racy love letters.

The latter cruised L.A. hollering at girls, bound for the East Side Motel. The former was dreaming of Carrie Fulton Phillips while in the East Room of the White House!

Harding (1865-1923) apparently carried on a salacious correspondence with his mistress in a selection of letters just released by the New York Times.

Warren G. Harding, Carrie Fulton Phillips

The letters, which detail Warren G. Harding's years-long affair with his Phillips, were originally discovered by historian Francis Russell during the 1960s,

Harding's descendants delayed the posthumous embarrassment by donating the letters to the Library of Congress, which kept them sealed for 50 years.

That half-century has just elapsed, and here we are.

The U.S. President, long regarded as one of the worst to ever hold that esteemed position, was married to Florence Harding from 1891 until his death.

He and Phillips began their affair in 1905, when the future Commander-in-Chief was editing a newspaper in Ohio, and she was the wife of his good friend.

He had a way with words. In 1912, he wrote her:

The West View News is a monthly publication in New York City's West Village with a circulation of approximately 20,000 subscribers.

But one article in its latest edition has now been viewed by far more people than that, thanks to one of the most controversial headlines you're ever likely to see in print.

The op-ed by author James Lincoln Collier is titled “N----r in the White House.”

The West View News Headline

The piece is actually a pro-Barack Obama article that criticizes the “racism” of far-right voters.

But most readers believe the newspaper is the one being racist by running such an attention-grabbing headline.

In a limited decision today, The Supreme Court ruled that closely held, for-profit companies can cite a religious exemption to the national healthcare requirement that they provide coverage for contraceptives.

Hobby Lobby, a chain founded on Biblical teachings, challenged this aspect of the Affordable Care Act, which forces companies with over 50 employees to cover preventive care services, such as as morning-after pills, diaphragms and IUDs.

The court ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby this morning, with Justice Samuel Alito writing the summation.

Barack Obama has come under major fire this week.

For his handling of the worsening situation in Iraq? No.

For reaching over the Sneeze Guard at Chipolte.

Prior to addressing the White House Summit on Working Families on Monday, the President of the United States stopped by the Mexican fast food joint, making his desired burrito bowl fillings as clear as possible.

While doing so, however, Obama breached the restaurant's code of etiquette, extending his entire forearm into no-man's land. What are you thinking, POTUS?!?

White House photographer Pete Souza Tweeted the picture soon after this embarrassing event took place, proving he's either a Chipolte newbie... or is secretly working for the Republicans.
