Michelle Obama: Barack Was The Good Parent, Trump Is The…Other Parent Our favorite FLOTUS is back, with a metaphorical burn for Donald Trump. During a discussion at the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston, Obama used a parenting metaphor to compare her husband’s style with Trump’s: “I always sort of felt like the eight years that Barack was president, it was sort of like having the good parent at home,” she said. “And now perhaps we have the other parent in the house.” Read her full statement...

According to historians, tales of mermaids and mermen can be traced back to the Babylonian sea deities Oannes and Atargatis in 1000 BCE. Since then, mermaid folklore has appeared in every era and every culture, from ancient Greece to Victorian England. But mermaid lore was not limited to the realm of folklore and mythology.
