Petition To Rename Trump Tower Street After Barack Obama Makes Way 

A joke that's made waves.

Elizabeth Rowin jokingly started a petition to rename a section of Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th Street to "President Barack H. Obama" since the location is the same block as the Trump Tower's which means the landmark's address could be changed to "725 Barack H. Obama Avenue, New York, NY 10022." 

Much to her surprise, the petition has drawn in quite the crowd and has racked up over 90,000 signatures. "I saw a comedian joke about how it would make Trump so mad if it was named after former President Obama and thought why not," Elizabeth told Newsweek. The description of the petition is in response to Los Angeles' move of renaming a stretch of 134 Freeway after the former president. "We request the New York City Mayor and City Council do the same by renaming a block of Fifth Avenue after the former president whose many accomplishments include: saving our nation from the Great Recession; serving two completely scandal-free terms in office; and taking out Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind September 11th, which killed over 3,000 New Yorkers," the site details.

Many of us have friends, but very few have "here's a million dollars" friends. Longtime pals Will Smith and Duane Martin have known each other for decades, so when Martin needed some financial help, Smith didn't hesitate to loan him $1.5 million. Martin reportedly required the large sum of cash to save his Chatsworth, California mansion after he defaulted on his original loan for the property, but after it was purchased under a company named Roxe LLC, he was able to become a renter once again.
