Former President George H.W. Bush remains in ICU at Methodist Hospital in Houston.
Bush, 88, was hospitalized in November after he began running a fever and had a persistent bronchitis-like cough.
According to sources Bush suffers from a condition called vascular Parkinsonism, which Bush has described as a kind of leg paralysis where “you tell your legs to move, and they don’t move.” It’s unclear if the condition is related to his current hospitalization.
Mark Cuban, owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, made it known that he thought Donald Trumps challenge to Barack Obama was “one of the dumbest things ever” and is firing back at Trump with a challenge of his own.
Trump offered to donate $5 million to charity if President Barack Obama released his college and passport application records.
“Donald, you shave your head, $1 million to any charity you want,” Mark challenged Trump during a MyFoxDFW interview.
This isn’t the first time Trumps hair has been a stake…. in 2007…Trump and WWE owner Vince McMahon had a bet on Wrestlemania in Detroit. They each chose a side, and the guy whose side lost had to shave his head. Donald’s hair was spared after McMahon lost.
Donald Trump’s Stupid Remarks:
Donald Trump, three weeks before Obama released his long-form birth certificate in 2011…
“I have people that have been studying [Obama’s birth certificate] and they cannot believe what they’re finding… I would like to have him show his birth certificate, and can I be honest with you, I hope he can. Because if he can’t, if he can’t, if he wasn’t born in this country, which is a real possibility…then he has pulled one of the great cons in the history of politics.”
“All of the women on ‘The Apprentice’ flirted with me — consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.” Donald Trump
Former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords escorted by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz received a standing ovation when she surprisingly appeared at tonight’s Democratic Convention in Charlotte. The crowd gave Gifford a heartwarming rouse of applause and a few tears as she led the crowd in “Pledge of Allegiance.”
After reciting the oath, Giffords waved and blew kisses to the audience before leaving the stage…The crowd could be heard chanting her name which gave way to the Obama campaign’s signature cry: “Fired Up! Ready to Go!”
Giffords, resigned from Congress in January so that she could focus on her recovery after the 2011 shooting during a constituents meeting at a Tuscon, Arizona supermarket.
Traffic in Charlotte, NC., can be a pain on any given day…add the Democratic Convention to the already frustrating traffic equation and you get a “traffic nightmare.”
Police who are having to deal with the chaos have found a better way to direct the traffic around the convention area which has decreased road rage, lighten the mood and has actually brought smiles to the “grumpiest of grumps” and the faces of both pedestrians and motorist trying to navigate through the city.
When the City of Charlotte called on members of the Clayton County Sheriff’s Department and the North Carolina Highway Patrol to assist with the traffic congestion…they went all out and sent their multi-talented, muti-taskers!
The temporary cops…aren’t out there directing traffic in a typical manner…they have pulled out some nifty choreography moves as the densely packed motorists tried to go about their business.
The officers call it “Traffic Jammin.” Watch Video Here
According to sources…the “dancing cops” are becoming a huge hit and are expected to become a YouTube Sensation.
Michaela Salahi, former White House party crasher has run off with Neal Schon, the lead guitarist for Journey.
It was then reported that she hadn’t been kidnapped… instead she went to watch Journey perform in Nashville last night and was currently with Schon in Memphis where Journey will perform with Foreigner. This report came from a rep from scoop marketing.
Michaele and Schon have dated in the past.
A couple of would-be reality TV stars crashed a state dinner Tuesday evening at the White House, rubbing shoulders with Vice-President Joe Biden and CBS news anchor Katie Couric.
Tareq and Michaele Salahi not only gatecrashed the party being thrown to honour Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, they also wrote and posted photos of the event online.
