Board Game of the Day: Trump for President the Game Puts You in Donald's Hair in the Race for the White House

Donald Trump has stolen a lot of the limelight in this early race for the presidency.

Between recent nonsense like giving out Lindsey Graham's cell phone number and his social media presence, it's been like the proverbial car wreck where you try to hide your eyes but can't look away.

Wouldn't you like to take it just one step further and know what it feels like to be the Donald himself? Sure you would.

That's why the good people at Funny or Die have created a board game that incredibly reflects what it must feel like to walk in Trump's shoes and feel that perfect hair blowing in the breeze.

Forget virtual reality, this promises a truly immersive experience.

Art of the Day: Obama is First President to Have 3D-Printed Portrait

Earlier this year, a team of Smithsonian-led 3D digital imaging specialists scanned President Obama and then sculpted his bust using a 3D printer.

It is the first 3D portrait of a United States President.

From Smithsonian:

For the 1:1 bust, in a process called Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), a laser melted nylon powder into a highly accurate and durable print. Given the size of print (the bust stands 19 inches tall, and weighs almost 13 pounds), the printing process took 42 hours, after which the print cooled down for 24 hours.

The White House has now released a behind-the-scenes video of the process, and you can check out the bust in person in the Smithsonian Castle where it is on display for the public Dec. 2-31.

The Dark Lord is Running for President of Ukraine

Radio Svoboda reports that Vader already holds a position as chairman of the Internet Party of Ukraine, first established in 2007, and has filed the necessary paperwork with the country's Central Election Commission to appear on the ballot in a special election to be held on May 25. He's also made the required and hefty financial deposit of 2.5 million Ukrainian hryvnia ($225,225), which suggests this is more than an irreverent prank.

What do you think about all of this? A full on prank?

The latest meme workshop from Reddit is based on an Associated Press photograph of President Obama on the phone at a campaign fundraiser event in Orlando, FL. According to ABC News reporter Devin Dwyer, the photograph was taken right after Obama realized that he had called the wrong number, who was quoted as saying:

"Hi is this Ann? Hi, is this Ann? Oh, I'm sorry, I must have the wrong number."

Well, if the President of the United States calls you by accident, I guess you just gotta deal with it.

White House Beer of the Day

The United States' most top secret beer just gained declassified status. The White House has released the recipes for its home-brewed -- and government approved -- Honey Ale and Honey Porter, for those who really want to drink like the president.

While people probably wouldn't mind a few tax dollars being spent on the Commander in Chief's home concoctions, Barack Obama funds this venture out of his own pocket.
