      Hmmm..I can tell you right now that the girl pictured in that tweet is NOT Malia Obama. This is a hoax… Why NBC Chicago would report this without confirming is problematic to me.

        I doubt it’s a hoax—-all over Chgo media—–more reports from Sun Times—–she was at the first day of fest too—Lorde concert—-and another cute selfie link at end of article.

          Dotster the article you just linked shows the same Malia in another tweet with a completely different clothes, hairstyle than the pic in the first article you posted. How do we explain this – pics supposedly taken of her at the same event?

            I don’t know, hf. I surrender to the whole mystery. Just passing along Obama stuff in Chgo news, altho a tad uncomfortable about it because of WH ban on girls’ photos when not with parents. One explanation may be that one was from 1st day of fest and one was from 3rd day—–I assume she may have been there all 3 days if that was indeed her. I think NBC Chgo has removed this post, likely from request from WH? —–altho Sun Times still has their article and tweet photo.

              LOL! Maybe NBC can revamp their “Unsolved Mysteries” TV series, and this would be their first segment. The unsolved case of Malia Obama at the Lollapalooza festival!

      • August 4, 2014 at 12:06 pm

        It does look like her though, Hopefruit. I just wish her friend hadn’t tweeted it and had some respect for her privacy and security.

    The David Gregory rumor mill has proved busier than ever this month, with the latest reports saying he could be looking for a new job.

    The New York Post said that NBC’s David Gregory was reportedly at CNN on Thursday, spurring speculation that he is considering a new job at the network. One source told the newspaper that he is trying out for a new primetime show.

    Gregory’s fate at “Meet the Press” has, of course, been the subject of speculation for years, and NBC News has always reiterated its support for the host even as the show struggles in third place behind “This Week” and “Face the Nation.” Just last week, the Post reported that Gregory could be taken off “MTP” after the midterm elections in November. The network called those rumors “false,” as it has done in the past in response to similar reports.

    This time, the Post said NBC News had no comment about sightings of Gregory at CNN.

    I am SO glad President Obama was born 53 years ago today! On that day, I was working at the Navy Department in D.C., waiting to start graduate school at GWU. Little did I know that a world altering event, , yes, I mean that, was taking place in Honolulu. Bless Ann Dunham. I think of her as a mother, and wish so much she had lived to see her son’s unbelievable success. She was three years younger than I, and I am now so enjoying my adult children and grandchildren, and feel so very hurt for her that she didn’t live to see all this.

    But, I am rejoicing that we as a country have him. He is the best president of my lifetime.

    Great R&S. Thank you.
    Congrats to all the Gold Medalists, starting with this thread and 4 back.
    So D. Gregory is now talking to CNN? Seriously? And Chuck Todd might be his replacement? Hmm? Talk about a nail on the Coffin for MTP. From one hack to a blatant rwnj drop out biased wicked fool? Wow. These people running NBC news are messed up.

    Serena Williams won. McIlroy won and Tiger Woods messed up his back again.

      You know, I’m not sure I would go to accept this – of what use is it to receive it now? Someone tell me how this makes sense. Places of learning should only be allowed to do stuff like this, legally, if the student has not met the academic requirements for graduation!

        Saw that Nena. I put him on my “to buy” list for iTunes! The tune he and the band played was super cool, almost like a track for early 90’s jazz-rap (which I am partial too :-) ) Loved how the tuba played such a funky base line!

    Today is a good day, because we have a President in Barack Obama who embodies integrity, peace, and compassion for all. Today is a good day also because there are so many people like those in this community who share those values and stand with him and support him every day.

    This is a beautiful day to be alive and sharing in the celebration of our 44th President of these United States of America with my TOD family.

    Mr. President, I hope that you are having a great time with your dear friends, and family. We have hope and loving thoughts going for wisdom, protection, and great continued work for every American who need so much to help them move FORWARD with you as our POTUS.

    Enjoy each moment of this day, Mr. President. We love you and we respect you as our great President. Mr. President, I have a delicious coconut cream pie and a lovely white mint candle as part of my celebration. Shining your beautiful light for the world, and eating a delicious coconut cream pie from (one of the best dessert places in my community) as part of my celebration of being alive during the presidency of one of the most sweet and decent men on the planet. Of course with great music and a cup of my favorite Peppermint Tea has to be a part of this wonderful celebration. Take care of your voice, Mr. President because we need a song tonight to celebrate.

    Happy Birthday, Mr. President. What an honor to wish a President Happy Birthday and know that I had something to do to help elect this president twice and be such an active part of his presidency. Thank you, Mr. President for allowing our TOD family to have your back.

    Loving hugs to our great and beautiful Chips. TY, Chips. You gave us this opportunity in this beautiful space to share this moment as well. HZ

    Anyone following this account? If so, tell them to stop lying about our President – unless they’re just tongue-in-cheek implying that literally the whole world is following him on Twitter, so anything that gets tweeted from his account gets read by the world.
