The First Lady arrived to Joe Biden's presidential address in a dress that spoke volumes.
President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden made a very special stop while they were in Georgia for a rally to mark his first 100 days in office — they visited former President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter. It was The Carter Center’s Twitter feed that tipped everyone off to […]
Joe and Jill Biden say White House cat is "waiting in the wings."
The first lady and president made a stop on the Getting America Back on Track Tour.
This is so sweet.
The White House will be welcoming a "first cat" for the first time since George W. Bush's administration, with first lady Jill Biden confirming last week that a feline pet is "waiting in the wings." But judging by her husband's footwear, the president is still Team Dog.
“You can just pretend like your mic doesn’t work."
“You can just pretend like your mic doesn’t work" if you can't answer a question, a fifth grader in Yorktown, Virginia, told the president and first lady on Monday.
On Thursday, President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden visited former President Jimmy Carter and Rosalynn Carter in Plains, GA for the first time since Biden took office. According to CNN, the Bidens wanted to “stop by and say hello” since the Carters were unable to attend the inauguration in January. “It was great to see President Carter. It reminded me that I was the first person to endorse him outside of Georgia,” Biden told reporters of the very wholesome meeting. “We sat and talked about the old days and he introduced me to a friend of his, a reverend he wanted me to get to know, and Rosalynn was great, too.” This would normally not be a headline-worthy story. But after the visit, the Carter Center shared “a wonderful photo” of the couples smiling and enjoying each other’s company. And the closer you look at the picture, the more obvious it becomes that something is very, very off. The Bidens appear to be looming over the Carters, who are not only incredibly tiny but also seem to be seated in miniature chairs. Everything in the room looks proportional to Carter’s small stature, but both Bidens tower over the furniture and the former presidential couple. The image prompted reactions like, “This is a beautiful photo. Genuine smiles,” and “LOVE THIS. I love the Carter Family and the Biden Family,” and “Dude what is with the size difference between these people what the hell is going on here.” What is going on here? Is it a bad Photoshop job? Are Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter — who are 96 and 93 years old, respectively — just very small people living in a human dollhouse? Is Biden larger than we thought? (He’s around 6 feet tall.) The internet exploded with theories, jokes, and memes. Just a reminder that the Bidens got the vaccine before most of us, and they have already grown to 1.5x the size of a normal human. https://t.co/uhoI1G5imZ— Josh Jordan (@NumbersMuncher) May 4, 2021 CANT SLEEP BECAUSE OF HUGE BIDENS pic.twitter.com/QtSkqDMf1I— Luke Mones (@LukeMones) May 4, 2021 This may be an inappropriate observation, but it looks like the Bidens are ventriloquizing the Carters here https://t.co/RRXqh2s9RE— Derek Duplessie (@dnduplessie) May 4, 2021 i can’t stop laughing at big bidens and baby carters pic.twitter.com/WIJxcqThra— Vincent Martella (@VinMan17) May 4, 2021 Several photographers and experts weighed in with answers. “Even though the natural physical changes during old age may be playing a role here, I don’t think ageing shrinks you that much. Also, the scale of Jimmy Carter’s feet compared to the rest of his body is weird — sort of like a reverse statue of David,” said Carly Earl, a photo editor for The Guardian Australia. She said that the photo was likely taken using a wide-angle lens, a feature available on many cameras and iPhones. “When taking photos in a smaller space you often don’t have room to move far enough back to get everyone in the frame, so you use a lens that can take it all in,” Earl explained. It’s very likely that at least part of the explanation here is the fishbowl effect: the Biden’s are on the end of the wide-angle photo, and the Carters are in the middle, making them appear (comically) smaller. However, Jonathan Alter, who wrote the biography His Very Best: Jimmy Carter, A Life, also said that there is a difference in size, given Carter’s age and height. Even when they were in the White House, they weren’t “tiny people,” but they were “in the medium-to-smaller size among presidents and first ladies,” Alter told The Washington Post. For such a sweet, posed photo, there’s a lot going on here. Some Republicans have already called the Bidens hypocrites for posing without masks, even though the CDC has said it’s safe for fully vaccinated people to gather indoors. And many people have worried about Carter’s health, although Biden told reporters he’s “gotten better.” But when Biden’s head is roughly and alarmingly twice the size of Rosalynn Carter’s, it’s difficult to focus on anything else.

I really miss getting dressed! Don’t get me wrong, I love the latest style shift towards sweat-shorts, robes, and activewear that was born out of spending a lot more time at home — but, there’s something irreplaceably special about putting together a really cute look and taking it out into the world. With the vaccine rollout making socializing with friends a tangible possibility, I’m now finding myself dreaming more and more about all the fabulous plus-size outfits I’ll finally be able to wear. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had a passion for trying out funky new fashion combinations — but, as a plus woman, finding the pieces for bringing my style visions to life has often felt like solving a particularly tricky jigsaw puzzle. Although there’s been a gap in fashion for excellent plus-size retailers, brands are finally starting to step up their inclusive offerings. Since I know firsthand how frustrating it can be to fully express yourself with what’s available, I’m sharing the plus-size outfit picks that I’ve been loving and wearing in hopes that they help to inspire you. Below, discover five of my favorite looks of the month along with corresponding shopping suggestions for how to recreate them. I’ve put together everything from a Y2k-inspired vibe to some 90s-style street glam and even an ode to Emo. Y2K FTW Who doesn’t love an early 2000s vibe! I felt like a character in Clueless with this outfit on. I love recreating a feeling and a time and this piece allowed me to do that. I had a lot of light blue pieces in my wardrobe that I thought would complement the white skort well. If chafing is an issue for you, definitely bring the chafing relief balm along for optimal comfort. I was honestly inspired to buy the white skirt because I saw a friend wearing it, but I had trouble finding plus-size options! Mine is from Forever 21’s plus line, but Athleta and Target have one that’d work for plus-size bodies too. I chose to pair this outfit with a blue beret, but you could easily use cute butterfly clips or a claw hair clip for just as much of an early-aughts vibe. Emo Phase II I don’t know about you all, but I definitely had an emo phase in middle/high school. It’s been years since I jammed to the overly self-indulgent emo music that makes up the pop-punk genre. However, something about a global pandemic really brings out the angst and got me listening to all the new pop punk hits. I rang in my adult emo phase with funky snake print pants and a green cropped top. I love how way back when Emo music had it’s hay day funky prints and bright colors were dominant. I love the colors in this specific outfit a lot. The chunky loafers add the right amount of edge. The pair of pants I’m wearing is almost sold out, so check out the fun zebra printed pair I’ve picked out for a similar sort of vibe! If you want to throw in more colors, add in some fun accessories like a pink scarf around your neck. 90s Street Glam The oversized shacket, wide-leg pants and black beret are definitely perfect for channeling that 90s energy. I like the mixture of styles that you might not put together usually. The pants and zebra print shacket are an unlikely pair, but I found after mixing and matching clothing items they create a very fun combo. I leaned into the more grungy 90s vibe with huge platform loafers as well. You can find my specific shacket from H&M, but there are a lot more plus-size friendly sizing options with this cute brown zebra-print one carried at Missguided. Checks Out Ever since the boom in checked clothes popping up all over the past couple of years, I’ve been dying to get in on this fun trend. However, the options for solid quality plus-size items checkered items are still pretty slim compared to the plethora of standard size options. Wray definitely trying to change that by offering up to a 5X in all their beautiful checked lounge sets. I’ve bought this set in every color offered! The black set would look amazing with some easy sandals and some fun, loud accessories. I chose to wear it with my blue beret and fun heart-shaped sunnies. This set is ultra-comfortable as it was originally intended to be pajamas! Feeling Groovy This outfit will have you feeling groovy and “Love Shack” ready! This set is made-to-order from the brand K.S. Garner. Kelsey Garner runs a slow fashion miracle that is very plus-size friendly, and they also take custom measurements as well – everyone is included. The beret, socks, clogs, and heart-shaped sunglasses are the type of fun accessories to take this already perfect Teal Luna set to the next level.
