After winning gold for Team USA at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Brazil, gymnasts Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, Gabby Douglas, and Madison Kocian, –a.k.a. the “Final Five“– have been unstoppable!

Most recently, the girls (except Douglas, who did not join) got to hang out in The White House, meet the Obamas, and even take over The White House’s Instagram account.

As you’d imagine, 16-year-old Laurie had the time of her life hanging out with LOTUS and POTUS. Here’s everything she and the girls did during their invasion of The White House.

They couldn’t contain their excitement as they stepped into The White House and took over the official Instagram account.

Really wishing Gabby Douglas joined the fun!

They posed, flexed and twirled in every room.

Werk it, queens!

Laurie strutted her dance moves in the East Wing.

Mirror Ball Trophy, she’s coming for you. 

She spent quality time with Abe Lincoln.

*Besitos*

She and her squad got to play with the adorable Bo and Sunny.

We’re officially jealous. 

And they juggled fruits with Michelle Obama.

They’re all so talented!

Simone Biles presented President Obama with a gift on behalf of all of the athletes in Team USA.

Surfboard, surfboard ??.

And they even got Obama to do a split with them.

Well, sort of. Maybe. Maybe not.

Yup. The Final Five is goals!

And we want to be part of their squad! ??

This SCOTUS Decision Leaves Millions At Risk For Deportation

The Supreme Court is back in session, and they have already dropped some bombshells on the American people.

SCOTUS reconvened on Oct. 3 to start their new session, which will surely be full of 4-4 split decisions. That’s mainly because the Republican-controlled Congress has decided to block any nomination for the position made by President Obama. It’s a tricky situation, since a 4-4 split leaves cases unresolved, effectively upholding the lower court’s decision. Those impacted by potential decisions are left in limbo.

The biggest bombshell is that they will not be rehearing arguments on the DACA+/DAPA court case that resulted in a 4-4 split last June.

SCOTUS did not offer an explanation as to why they are refusing to rehear the arguments for and against a program that would offer protection to millions of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. who are currently living in the shadows. The Obama administration petitioned the court for a second case for the immigration policies, but the denial was swift and unwavering.

“We’ve seen the success of the former program, and many people being able to, not just get work permits, but also start businesses, buy homes, really get their life settled,” Democratic U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego told ABC15.
