DailyPBO: The President & The National Action Network
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, the National Action Network held a summit today in New York and President Obama gave a barn-burner of a speech this afternoon. The Obamas will spend the night in New York and attend “Raisin In The Sun” on Broadway starring Denzel Washington.
If ever there was a selfie that we need… it’s Denzel & Obama. Make it happen, FLOTUS.

Instagramming the State of the Union Address
Tonight, U.S. President Barack Obama will deliver his 5th State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress. The State of the Union is delivered each year, allowing the President to report on the condition of the United States and propose new agenda initiatives.
In the run up to tonight’s speech, the White House (@whitehouse) has been sharing a behind-the-scenes look at the work that goes into drafting the address by having different staff members—including the President’s speech writer, policy council and broadcast director—take over the account.
