The White House will be very busy today.

LeBron James and the entire Cleveland Cavaliers championship team arrived to the White House on Thursday morning for the organization’s championship celebration — Buuuuuuut it also just so happens to be the same day President Barack Obama will be meeting with President-elect Donald Trump.

Will there be a showdown in the Oval?

LeBron publicly endorsed Hillary Clinton over the summer and has been very outspoken about being a Clinton supporter. Needless to say, Tuesday’s election outcome didn’t exactly sit well with the NBA player.

An emotional James took to Instagram Wednesday morning suggesting he “woke up today looking and searching for answers on what has happened this song hit it right on the head!”

He continued in the lengthy post,”If we continue the faith(as hard as it may be to do so) we will BE ALRIGHT!! Parents and leaders of our children please let them know they can still change the world for the better! Don’t lose a bit of faith! They’re our future and we must remain stronger than ever!!”

James wrote, “Yes we all wanna lace up the boots, put on the hard hats and strike but that’s not the answer. Love, genuine LOVE and FAITH will be the only thing that can get us through this. Minorities and Women in all please know that this isn’t the end, it’s just a very challenging obstacle that we will overcome!!”

The Cavaliers player explained, “The man above will never put something in our paths that we can handle no matter how difficult it may feel/be! To all the youth out there I PROMISE I’ll continue to lead u guys every single day without no hesitation!! Time to educate and even more mold my children into being the greatest model citizens they can become in life! They will continue the legacy beyond life! Lastly, Even if whos now in office doesn’t, Know that I LOVE YOU’LL!!!”

Cavaliers star J.R. Smith also shared his disappointment in the election outcome, posting a photo on Instagram of his young daughter in front of the White House with the caption:

“How do you explain to this face what happen? You can be a educated women in your field an not get the job because your a women or cause your black? How do you say “go try your best” even though it won’t be good enough. How do I even feel confident sending her on play dates knowing the kids family voted for the racist, sexist person an I don’t know how they will treat her when she’s gone. How? Seriously How? I understand let go and let God! But damn!”

This video of the team arriving to the White House shows a stoic LeBron on the presidential grounds.

Following Trump’s victory, POTUS called the 70-year-old, congratulated him and invited him to the White House for an “update” on the transition planning that the president’s team “has been working on for nearly a year.”

Becky With The Bad Braids: Meghan McCain + 8 Other Epic Braid Fails

Published

on

White folks rocking corn rows and braids is nothing knew, but Meghan McCain’s recent hair do while on The View had us shaking our heads.

Besides the fact that it’s Black History Month and they should put a pause on the cultural appropriation, it was just a bad look on Meghan. The Republican co-host (or her stylist) thought it was a good idea to put three cornrows in hair with a super teased pompadour in the middle section.  And to make matters worse the braids were chunky at the top and super thin towards the end. Sigh.

Clearly this was not a black hair dresser because if it were they would have at least added some hair. Instead they had Meghan out here looking like a character from Game of Thrones. Or maybe that’s what they were going for. Either way it’s a no for us dawg.

It was also a no for us when Christina Aguilera decided to get dirty and rock “medusa” braids to the World Music Awards in 2001.

Then sometime in the 2000s Fergie thought being apart of the Black Eye Peas gave her a pass to wear corn rows.

Kevin Federline also thought since his baby mama (Shar Jackson) was black he could walk around looking an NBA player. Deep sigh.

Melanie Griffin looked a hot damn mess rocking braids with beads and foil on the ends in 2000.

Ke$ha made us cringe in these colorful braids with knots the size of our knuckles.

Kim Kardashian also had us screaming girl bye when she first attempted to rock braids like Bo Derek.

Lena Dunham tried it with these pitiful plaits during her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

And Coco almost got a pass until she decided to call her braids the “Coco swoop”.
