Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States of America. He became a Democratic U.S. Senator from Illinois in 2004, and has...

Given all the excesses available in Hollywood, and all the stressed-out creative types who work there, it's not surprising that we could come up with a list of celebrity smokers.

Some of the individuals who made said list may surprise you, though.

Despite the obvious risks of bad breath, yellow teeth and ... what's that one we forgot ... oh, right, lung cancer, countless celebrities still smoke cigarettes.

Hey, at least they can afford to pay the sin tax on those $10 packs?

If you know who Lindsay Lohan is, chances are you know Lindsay Lohan smokes. Ditto Charlie Sheen. But you'd never think some of these other stars partake.

Take a look at 23 celeb smokers who should probably quit:

Katherine Heigl
Katherine Heigl is smoking hot ... although her smoking habit is so not. She also thinks e-cigarettes are cool, which is almost funny but more sad than anything.

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:

Barack Obama has had a trying week.

On Monday, an NYC newspaper referred to the President as an N-word in a freaking headline! Tuesday, Joan Rivers called Obama gay in one of her strangest tirades to date.

A bizarre couple of days like that would make anyone want to kick back and forget their problems for a while, but apparently No Drama Obama doesn't turn to the ganja when it's time to relax:

That's Barry in Denver where (of course) a stoned supporter shouts, "Want a hit?" presumably while offering the most powerful man in the western world some primo kush. ("Hey, man, it's legal.")

Not surprisingly, Obama politely declines the offer, laughs off the Chong-like fan, and keeps moving.

You may want to sit down for this: Joan Rivers made some offensive comments while promoting her new book.

The comedy legend, of course, has been shocking fans for weeks during one of the most bizarre press tours in recent memory.

Highlights (or lowlights, depending on whom you ask) include: Rivers accusing Miley Cyrus of incest, suggesting that Kim Kardashian has had sex with millions of men, and implying that Kristen Stewart slept her way to the top.

While it may not seem possible, Rivers actually topped herself earlier this week.

In addition to storming out of a CNN interview, Joan made some comments about President Obama and his wife that have many in the LGBT community demanding an apology:

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.

Hillary Clinton served as President Obama's Secretary of State for four years, and Obama will likely prove to be a valuable ally when Clinton makes another bid for the White House in 2016, but if a new tell-all book is to be believed, Clinton is still holding on to some hard feelings stemming from the 2012 Democratic primaries.

  • Hillary
  • Prez Obama

Edward Klein, author of the not-at-all-scandalously-titled Blood Feud: The Obamas Vs. The Clintons, claims that a boozed up Clinton vented her frustrations to a group of friends when asked about Obama in 2013.

The book quotes Clinton as saying:

"Obama has turned into a joke. The IRS targeting the Tea Party, the Justice Department's seizure of AP phone records...Obama's allowed his hatred of his enemies to screw him the way Nixon did."

It's been a rough week for Obama who's been racking up haters like it's going out of style:

Remember back in 2008 when every lunatic with an anti-Obama agenda claimed the President-to-be was a closet Muslim?

Well, it seems the torch has been passed, and now it's up to Obama's allies to question his religious convictions.

Appearing on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart recently, comedian and liberal pundit Bill Maher made the strange declaration that Obama is "a drop-dead atheist."

While if the same words came out of Bill O'Reilly's mouth, they'd be taken as an attack against the President's moral character,coming  from Maher the bizarre claim is the verbal equivalent of putting his arm around Obama's shoulder and posing for a selfie.

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.

Kanye West recently married Kim Kardashian and also celebrated the one-year birthday of his daughter.

But the rapper doesn't wanna talk about any of that.

Instead, via an interview with Power106FM, the rapper would like to discuss Iraq, the problem with being President… and the Almighty.

"You can't effect change from inside the White House,” Kanye said of Barack Obama sending 300 military advisors to Iraq to deal with upheaval in that nation. “You gotta have the money."

He then seemed to contradict himself, adding: "Good ideas usually aren’t connected to money as much …Creativity and extreme genius are extremely cheap."

Join us in celebrating 15 celebrity dads we love below!
