In 2008, Michelle Obama was tentative on the campaign trail, wary of saying anything to jeopardize her husband's historic bid to be America's first black president. Eight years later, the self-assured first lady -- back on the campaign trail -- electrified Democratic Party faithful with a passionate takedown of Donald Trump and what she called his "frightening" attitude towards women. "It has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn't have predicted," Obama told a rally for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire. "This is not normal. This is not politics as usual. This is disgraceful. It is intolerable." The speech cemented the transformation of Obama, who turns 53 on Tuesday. Once a reluctant 'mom-in-chief,' the tall, toned Princeton and Harvard graduate -- America's first black first lady -- has evolved, becoming a singular voice for women and a political dynamo.

He also criticized Ted Cruz because his wife worked for Goldman Sachs and because he received loans from the bank. By electing Trump, according to some narratives , the people rejected candidates funded by special interests in direct defiance of the established order. “I know the guys at Goldman Sachs ,” Trump said last February. “ They have total, total control over [Cruz]. Just like they have total control over Hillary Clinton ,” he claimed, referencing the funding Clinton and Cruz received. But as much as Trump’s rhetoric reflected the sentiments of millions of Americans — and though he refused donations from bankers — his actions since clinching the role of commander-in-chief have betrayed his initial position. In fact, before he even won the presidency, Trump was employing Steven Mnunchin, a former Goldman Sachs executive, as his campaign finance chairman.

Amid speculation that Donald Trump's pick for Labor Secretary, Andrew Puzder, may have lost his appetite for the job, the fast food CEO's personal financial disclosure documents are being kept from public view. When -- and if -- the Office of Government Ethics releases these documents, we'll get a clearer picture of the grand fortune Puzder has built up in his 16 years as the chief of CKE, the company behind the Hardee's and Carl's Jr. chains. But even the incomplete data CKE has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission make clear that Puzder has received massive rewards for exploiting his low-wage labor force. In just the four-year period of 2009-2012, SEC filings show Puzder made $27.5 million in total compensation, with a peak haul in 2011 of $10.1 million. (After 2012, CKE no longer had to report executive compensation data because it had become privately held.
