US election!! Biden will be the next President, Obama tells Donald Trump

Formal US President, Barack Obama has said that Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States of America not minding the shenanigans of President Donald Trump. He made this public during an interview on CBS Sunday Morning’s Gayle King show. He said, “Look, Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States; Kamala Harris will be the next vice president,” he said. Obama said early hours after Trump took to Twitter to announce that he’s going to challenge the election result with big suits. In a previous interview, Obama shammed the Republican party for tagging along with Trump in casting aspersions on Biden and democracy. “They appear to be motivated, in part, because the president doesn’t like to lose and never admits loss,” he said. “I’m more troubled by the fact that other Republican officials who clearly know better are going along with this, are humouring him in this fashion. “It is one more step in delegitimising not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally. And that’s a dangerous path.”

House gift to my mom also belongs to my dad —Emanuella

Emanuella Samuel, a popular comedienne, says the early Christmas house gift to her mother also belongs to her father as well. Social media has been on fire since the 10-year-old comedienne announced last week that she built her mother a house. “I built this for you mom. For all the prayers; all the encouragement and support. Mummy, I know you said you want a portable house and this is it. But forgive me because I must complete your mansion for you next year. Don’t worry, it won’t make us go to hell; my super Christmas mummy. I love you,” Emanuella had captioned photos of the house in a post on her Instagram account. There have been comments flying everywhere especially on some social media users who had the opinion that the young actress should also build a house for her father since she built one for her mother. Then speaking on Monday in a PUNCH Facebook Live Interview, Emanuella said the house gift also belonged to her father too. She said, “I wanted to buy another car for my dad but Uncle Mark now told me to save more money and build the house that I promised my mom. So, I talked with my manager and they built the house and furnished it. See the house now, is it not fine? “If it is for my mom, it is for everybody; it’s for my dad too. My dad is married to my mom. After all, they are living together.” Emanuella tagged all that has been happening in her life to “God’s grace”. “Everything is God’s grace. I never ‘experrit’. When God wants to use you, He will use you at the right time,” she noted. Emanuella’s producer, Mark Angel, also said in the exclusive interview with The PUNCH that the young actress could afford to build the house. Mark Angel said, “Emanuella earns money, so she has money to build whatever she wants to build. She can afford it. Her management can afford it.”

So I messaged him but I was not expecting a reply.” “At the time I had just started my MSc. Degree 2 months ago and I vividly remember going to uni the next day all happy and smiling, telling all my friends that I had met my husband the night before. “My friends can bear me witness because they thought I was crazy when I narrated the circumstance surrounding my statement (bearing in mind I hadn’t got a reply yet!). “That afternoon , 23rd November I surprisingly got a reply from him.
