The artist behind the iconic “Hope” poster of Barack Obama that became synonymous with his successful presidential campaign has released a new set of images, just in time for Trump’s inauguration and the subsequent Women’s March.

Artist Shepard Fairey, who created the original in 2008 as well as a less flattering Donald Trump print complete with the caption “Demagogue,” has shifted his focus this time round.

Now his images center on a diverse mix of people rather than leaders, as millions…

During the past few years, Obamacare has been one of the most controversial and talked about policies in the United States.

Since its inception, Obamacare has faced its fair share of opposition, and with Donald Trump coming into office, those flames have again been fanned. Jimmy Kimmel was curious about how the public really felt about Obamacare. Specifically, he asked people if they preferred Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act.

Of course, those two are the same thing. But from the…

White House photographer Pete Souza can’t pick his favorite photo of President Obama, but he does have a favorite day on the job: a snowy Saturday in 2010.

“Washington was under siege with snow,” Souza wrote on Instagram Wednesday. “I slept in my office overnight, knowing I probably couldn’t drive to the White House the next day.”

Souza hoped that in the wake of the blizzard, he’d be able to snap some photos…

With the stunning news that a bulk of Chelsea Manning’s remaining sentence has been commuted by President Obama, there’s an obvious question in the air about that other infamous leaker of government document troves, Edward Snowden.

Chelsea Manning will go free. Now, about Julian Assange’s extradition …

WikiLeaks made a big offer just five days ago. If President Barack Obama commuted Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange would allow himself to be sent back to the U.S. to face charges for disseminating classified information.

That offer is being put to the test. On Tuesday afternoon, news broke that Obama had used his power as president to release Manning, a former army intelligence analyst, from prison as of May 17, 2017.

WikiLeaks had made the offer in a tweet, which remains up.

If Obama grants…

Having been inspired by the first round of beloved “Biden plotting against Trump” memes, the fine folks on the internet are back at it again, and have decided to transform the touching moment when Obama presented Biden with the…
