President Reelect Obama takes the stage with his family. At the McCormick Place convention center, the President even gave a sweet shoutout to Michelle Obama: ‘I wouldn’t be the man I am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago, let me say this publicly Michelle I have never loved you more.’

Giovanni Di Stefano, the long time lawyer for serial killer Charles Manson has reached out to President Obama, asking the President to set his client free.
