There was a lot going on today that affected the American people.

Capitulation to the Castro brothers was completed when Secretary of State John Kerry raised the American flag over the U.S. Embassy in Havana.

ISIS, which is using chemical weapons, was confirmed to have raped American hostage Kayla Mueller, keeping her as a sex slave for the caliph in two years of captivity before her death.

Al-Qaeda and the Taliban renewed their commitment vows.

Opposition to the Iran nuclear deal continues to mount, though the administration would rather bury its head in the sand for that development.

But President Obama’s playlist leads the White House website.

Yes, the White House announced, the commander in chief, who’s spent the week golfing along Cape Cod, joined Spotify this week! “And our inaugural playlist was hand-picked by none other than President Obama.”

“Your summer just got a little groovier,” the administration declared. “When asked to pick a few of his favorite songs for the summer, the President got serious. He grabbed a pen and paper and drafted up not one, but two separate summer playlists: One for the daytime, and one for the evening.”

And the White House provided official photographic evidence of POTUS picking his playlist:
