It’s a busy morning, see why we’re dashing off to Starbucks:
- After Donald Trump shamelessly went after our President, he congratulated Obama and called a truce. “I want to personally congratulate President Obama and the men and women of the Armed Forces for a job well done,” Trump said to ABC. “We should spend the next several days not debating party politics, but in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and those currently fighting for our freedom. God Bless America!” In other Obama news, a FOX news correspondent accidentally announced Obama’s death instead of Osama Bin Laden’s! Though the anchor quickly regained control over the situation, it’s a major slip-up on live TV. [Perez Hilton] [Hip Hop Wired]
