Scroll for updates… Michael Scott’s name came up several times during the Obama-lympics 2016 debacle. He was one of many Chicago cronies who stood to gain from the bid.

Taxpayers shelled out probably $1 million or more for the president, his wife and others to […]

From Michelle Obama’s failed pitch to the International Olympic Committee: “Some of my best memories are sitting on my dad’s lap, cheering on Olga and Nadia, Carl Lewis, and others for their brilliance and perfection.” Um. Ew. Oof. Mrs. Obama was 20 years old when Lewis first competed in the Olympics in 1984. Senior White […]
