VIDEO: Mitt Romney falls for empty-room April Fools’ gag!/dgjackson/status/186576828910149633

Mitt Romney’s staff, with help from Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), played a little practical joke on Mitt Romney today at a campaign stop in Milwaukee, WI. Here’s the setup. Romney thought he was going to speak before an enthusiastic crowd after introductions by Ryan and Johnson. He got a big introduction, complete with loud crowd applause and his theme music and, as he stepped out behind the screen with Sen. Johnson he saw that it was all a prank. The room was almost empty.

Here’s the video, straight from Twitter, by his “body man” Garrett Jackson.

April Fools!!

Ellen Gave This School In Detroit A Surprise That Will Change People’s Lives

Like many places in Detroit, Spain Elementary School is broken down and neglected. The school’s roof is falling apart, the gym isn’t functional because of an unsafe floor, and the institution — which is full of talented performers — doesn’t have enough money in its budget to hire even one music teacher.

Ellen DeGeneres was disheartened when she heard about this, so with the help of Lowe’s — and one surprise guest — she decided to give the school one heck of an assembly. Isn’t that De-GENEROUS?

That seems like a ton of money, but given the recent investigation into the potential black mold that is making students and faculty sick, Spain is going to need a lot more than that to give these kids the safe, productive learning environment they deserve.

To donate to Ellen’s Spain Elementary School GoFundMe campaign, click here. If you want to help out the Detroit public school system, check this out.
