Having hit Ireland yesterday, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama touched down in London Tuesday for an official state visit to the UK.

On the agenda? Meeting Prince William and Kate Middleton!

Having just returned from their honeymoon in the Seychelles, the newlyweds happily greeted Barack and Michelle Obama in Buckingham Palace. Check it out:

"So last week I caught a fish this big ..."

Britain's golden couple were still glowing from their royal wedding and subsequent retreat off the east coast of Africa as they talked with the First Family.

Chatting with the First Lady, Kate Middleton looked wonderful in a tan, form-fitting dress. William and Barack look engrossed in a talk about ... something!

Upon their arrival at the Palace Tuesday, the Obamas were also greeted by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip, who gave them a tour of the premises.

In a light-hearted nod to the infamous birther controversy, President Barack Obama and his re-election campaign have released a new line of t-shirts and coffee mugs touting that the Commander-in-Chief was "Made in the USA!"

The "birthers" have long held the belief that Obama is not a natural born citizen of the U.S. of A. and thus ineligible to be president. Obama's birth certificate, released last month to quell the rumor, is featured on the shirts:

Obama said he "can't walk around with his birth certificate plastered on his forehead," so deputy campaign manager Julianna Smoot asked his supporters to wear it for him, according to an email message on Wednesday.

The birther conspiracy theory was given a loud, annoying mouthpiece this year in the form of Donald Trump, who allegedly pondered running against Obama but dropped out of the race for the Republican nomination Tuesday.

This is one of the best covers of Rebecca Black we've heard to date.

The youngster may not be pregnant, but she's given birth to a phenomenon - nay, a renewed sense of appreciation - every American can embrace.

Everybody is looking forward. To the weekend. Yeah. Partying. Yeah.

Words to live by if ever they existed. Listen to President Barack Obama get down on "Friday" with an assist from Vice President Joe Biden here:

President Barack Obama reached out to Justin Bieber this week for assistance.

It all started when Obama made a visit to Ground Zero soon after Osama Bin Laden was killed. There, he met 14-year old Payton Wall, who had written to the President, told him of her father dying on 9/11 and also expressed her affection for a certain 17-year old singer.

Obama reportedly told Wall that he knew Bieber and would organize an introduction between her and her idol. Many reporters and publications mocked the President for making such a promise.

But it looks like it will come true.

Amidst controversy from conservatives, Common performed a spoken word piece at the White House in celebration of American poetry and prose last night.

Among other critics, Sarah Palin ripped Common and the Obamas for inviting the rapper/actor, given his former harsh words against former President Bush.

In any event, Common brought Chi-town to the White House as Barack and Michelle Obama hosted a poetry night in the "People's House." Watch him here:

Did he just anoint Barack some kind of king at the end there?

It's unclear, but that was pretty cool. After all of the controversy of the last few days, Common responded by doing what he was invited there for, delivering a beautiful poem. He also addressed the criticism of his visit on Facebook.

“Politics is politics and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I respect that,” he said. “The one thing that shouldn’t be questioned is my support for the police officers and troops that protect us every day. Peace yall!”

Well put. Read the full text of his poem after the jump:

Despite reports to the contrary, President Barack Obama emphatically said today that he will not release an Osama bin Laden death photo to the public.

Photos taken after U.S. forces shot him dead Sunday clearly show the Al Qaeda leader's bloody, bullet-ridden face, which plenty of people want to see.

It appeared that the administration was on the cusp of releasing the graphic images, but Obama now says it's not gonna happen for myriad reasons.

In particular, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton both advised Obama against inciting a backlash against the U.S.

Obama told 60 Minutes in an interview to air Sunday that "the risks outweigh the benefits" and that they wouldn't quash conspiracy theories anyway.

Some will "claim the photos are doctored anyway" and the risk is that the photos "will only serve to inflame public opinion in the Middle East."

Osama Bin Laden Photo

The President continued his defense of not releasing the pictures:

"Imagine how the American people would react if Al Qaeda killed one of our troops or military leaders, and put photos of the body on the internet."

"Osama bin Laden is not a trophy - he is dead and let's now focus on continuing the fight until Al Qaeda has been eliminated." He makes a point.

What do you think, though: Release the bin Laden pics?

With conspiracy theories swirling, President Obama has decided to release at least one photo of a dead Osama bin Laden, according to The Drudge Report.

No word on when the White House plans to release the first image. However, a senior U.S. official tells CNN that there were three sets of pictures taken:

  • Photos of the raid where Osama bin Laden was killed.
  • Photos of bin Laden's body taken after the raid.
  • Photos of the late terrorist's burial at sea.
Osama bin Laden Pic

Why not show proof you can that Osama bin Laden is really dead? Because the photo that most clearly shows his face is also the most graphic taken of him.

Due to the massive head wound across his face, officials do not believe it is suitable to run in the media, however it's the image that's undeniably bin Laden.

No word when and if that particular image will be released, but the "Osama bin Laden death photo" circulating online today is NOT real. It's a hoax, people.

One you can see after the jump if you really want. It's grotesque, probably NSFW and NER (not even real), so you honestly don't have to bother, but ...

Now we've seen it all.

Donald Trump not only praised President Barack Obama on Twitter, he's called for a moratorium on partisan politics. Meaning he may actually shut up briefly!

“I want to personally congratulate President Obama and the men and women of the Armed Forces for a job very well done,” the business mogul Tweeted.

In response to the death of Osama bin Laden, he added: “I am so proud to see Americans standing shoulder to shoulder, waving the flag in celebration.”

  • Birther
  • The President of the United States of America

Donald then called for a verbal cease-fire of sorts, adding:

“We should spend the next few days not debating party politics, but in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and those fighting for freedom.”

“God Bless America.”

Indeed. Not only is it a time to stand together, but after Obama blasted Trump at the White House Correspondents dinner, maybe he realized he took some of his earlier criticisms of the President's grades and birth certificate too far.
