Chelsea Clinton is a mother for the first time. The global activist and former First Daughter, 34, welcomed a baby girl with her husband Marc Mezvinsky!

“Marc and I are full of love, awe and gratitude as we celebrate the birth of our daughter, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky,” Clinton wrote late Friday night.

Months after announcing she and Mezvinsky hoped to make 2014 the “Year of the Baby,” Chelsea, confirmed in April that the couple were expecting.

“I certainly feel all the better whether it’s a girl or a boy that she or he will grow up in world filled with so many strong female leaders,” she said.

Appropriately, Bill and Hillary Clinton's only child made the announcement at a Clinton Foundation event for the empowerment of girls and young women.

Her mom, the former Secretary of State, has been excited for the arrival, stockpiling kids' books and planning to have a car seat in her own vehicle.

Attorney General Eric Holder, a prominent member of the Obama administration since it began, will resign his post Thursday, according to multiple news reports.

The President is expected to announce the resignation this afternoon. Holder will stay on until his successor is confirmed, a White House official said.

Holder has long signaled he plans to leave the job by the end of this year, and has had several discussions with Barack Obama about his exit.

Among those mentioned as possible successors is former White House counsel Kathyrn Ruemmler, according to people familiar with the discussions.

Other candidates being considered by the White House are Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, along with Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

The first African American attorney general, Holder is one of a few remaining cabinet members whose tenures date back to Obama's inauguration.

Some are calling it the “latte salute.” Others prefer the coffee salute, and/or the single most baffling display of disrespect in the history of the U.S.A.

Call it what you want, President Barack Obama saluted two Marines today while holding a hot beverage ... in a video posted by the White House's OWN INSTAGRAM!

Fascinating moments in social media fails.

Obama stepped off Marine One at the Wall Street landing zone in New York City this afternoon, en route to the United Nations General Assembly.

As he saluted two Marines at the bottom of the stairs, the sunglasses-wearing president only managed a half-salute, since he was holding a coffee and all.

The odd gesture appeared in an Instagram video posted by the White House's account, which is bizarre and begs many questions in and of itself.

Why share something like this when it's just asking for ridicule - which it got, and then some - with critics slamming the unorthodox salute as “un-presidential.”

Earlier this month, the entire Palin family was involved in a brawl at a party in Anchorage, Alaska.

Even though she doesn't read newspapers, family matriarch and woman who came frighteningly close to being our vice president -Sarah Palin - somehow found out that her family was portrayed by the media in a less-than-favorable fashion following the fight, and she's madder than a bull moose with a burr on his butt, you betcha:

Thumbs Up From Sarah Palin

"As you can imagine [my kids] and my extended family have experienced so many things that may have crushed others without a strong foundation of faith," wrote Palin on her Facebook page.

"I'm thankful for my friends' prayer shield that surrounds, allowing them to remain their anchor. Thank you, prayer warriors!"

Powerful stuff. Sounds like her family has been through a lot. Hey, you know who else has been through a lot? The people who were violently attacked by the entire Palin family at a party!

Clear eyes. Full Hearts. Can't believe this incredible throwback photo!

In Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's new memoir, "Off the Sidelines," the politician talks about her life in and out of office, including her thoughts on the current system of government and many other personal tidbits.

But whatever. No one is talking about that stuff at the moment.

Instead, the Internet is focused on a picture Gillibrand includes in the book: It's of her and her roommate for a study abroad trip at Dartmouth: yup, that's actress Connie Britton!

Connie Britton and Kirsten Gillibrand

"We were quite adventurous," Gillibrand told HuffPost Live of her time with Britton in China. "We'd spend every weekend going someplace new in China and seeing and experiencing different things."

Islamic State militants released a video Saturday showing the beheading of aid worker David Haines, the latest in a disturbing series of such executions.

The 44-year-old Haines, who was British, was abducted in Syria in 2013 while working for an international aid agency. His whereabouts had been unknown.

The British government had kept the kidnapping secret out of concern for his safety until another video was recently released by Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.

ISIS' video identified him as a captive, showing him in an orange jumpsuit and calling out Prime Minister David Cameron personally for his soon-to-be beheading.

The British Foreign Office had said late Saturday that it was "working urgently to verify the video," but Cameron's statement left little room for ambiguity:

"The murder of David Haines is an act of pure evil. My heart goes out to his family who have shown extraordinary courage and fortitude."

This has been a rough few days for President Barack Obama.

First, a kid totally hated being in the Oval Office with him.

Then, Michael Moore referred to Obama as a huge disappointment.

Now, a student named Madison at a D.C. charter school has reacted to a surprise visit by the President by leveling with the most powerful man on the planet and telling him:

I sort of wish you had been Beyonce.

HA! Watch her make this admission and then try to backpedal from it, all while Obama takes it in stride. He's used to criticism these days...

Short on cash and feeling apprehensive about becoming a mother, a pregnant woman recently turned to a crowdfunding site to pay for her abortion.

To see if anybody would donate to this charity of her own creation - the cleverly-titled "Stop Bailey From Breeding Fund" - she signed up on GoFund Me.

Bailey was actually able to raise some cash for the procedure ... until GoFundMe began getting complaints, at which point it booted her off the site.

A representative said the company didn't want to be "associated with" the "content subject matter" she was promoting, and her page was removed.

The content subject matter, included gems like this: "Aside from having no desire to raise a child, she is economically unstable and can barely afford to support herself."

"This means having enough to pay rent, smoke cigarettes, drink rockstar, support her friends in prison, and if she’s really busted her ass, maybe go to a show or two."

Sarah Palin may not have not reached her goal of becoming vice president, but based on the latest gossip out of Anchorage, she just might earn the title of Most Insanely Psychotic Mom in Alaska.

And we'd imagine there's some stiff competition in that department.

Several media outlets are reporting today that Palin and her entire freaking family were involved in a massive, drunken, 20-person brawl at some sort of huge annual party.

The Palin Family

When the Palins arrived, eldest son Track spotted a dude who had recently broken up with his 20-year-old sister Willow.

According to witnesses, Track cold-cocked the guy and all hell broke loose.

Sarah reportedly stood around screaming, "Do you know who I am?!" while her kids (including daughter Bristol, who apparently has a "mean right hook") proceeded to gang-beat anyone in sight.

A Washington, D.C. middle school teacher is under scrutiny for using a Venn diagram to compare George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler as part of a homework assignment.

In the assignment, McKinley Middle School students were asked to compare and contrast the “two men of power who abused their power in various ways.”

Hitler-George W. Bush Venn Diagram

After the diagram was posted to Twitter, D.C. Public Schools released a statement acknowledging the diagram and condemning the teacher for it:

"This week, a DCPS teacher created a worksheet which asked students to compare and contrast President George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler, after reading two texts."

"No DCPS curriculum materials suggest in any way that teachers should compare the texts in this manner or compare Hitler to any other individual."

"The teacher deeply regrets this mistake, and any suggestion to malign the office of the presidency or make any comparison in this egregious way."
