First Lady Michelle Obama was spotted shopping at Target by an Associated Press photographer who told CBS News he was tipped off that she would be there.
AP photographer Charles Dharapak told CBS News he took the picture at the Target on Route 1 in Alexandria, Virginia.
The first lady's office confirmed that the picture showed Mrs. Obama, though it did not immediately respond when asked if it tipped off Dharapak.
"It is not uncommon for the First Lady to slip out to run an errand, eat at a local restaurant or otherwise enjoy the city outside the White House gates," said Kristina Schake, communications director for the First Lady.

Surely a photo op, but hardly is she just like us. I haven't been to a Target in over a year. Many people now have to shop at the Dollar General, or second hand clothing stores. And those stores are much more crowded lately. If she were in one of those for this staged pic, then she would be more like most Americans today who are broke and can't even afford Target.
Maybe she’s moving out and needed to pick up a few things for the new place.
Potomac Yards is where we would head from Capitol Hill to see a move or shop at Best Buy, Target, or Barnes and Noble. Right over the river and easy to park.
She’s using the shopping cart to block the veiw of her lower half.
Michelle truly is like us! This is a game changer...I’m voting for Obama!
Excuse me while I gag!
Disturbing to say the least.
Please someone help me understand this....MoHo can shop online at Target, so was this just a big photo op?
Boy they will do anything for photo ops won’t they.I bet she shops at target all of the time yeah right they do not sell $500 tennis shoes do they?
I don’t think Target offers Lobster or Wagyu Beef.
This is political theater at its most absurd!!
Did she also hit the Kmart in Marbella, Spain, or the Dollar Store in Marthas Vineyard?
If chutzpah was a qualification for POTUS, Obama (and his Missus) would be the most qualified president in our history.
This story is on Yahoo! and there isnt one positive comment. Not one. And Now there are no comments at all and you cant leave one.
If she had not alerted AP staff for a photog opportunity, I would have said ‘leave the poor woman alone so she can get away from that whining, childish, euro-socialist, ego-centric, bi-sexual she’s stuck with.’
Just like her husband, the story is phony.
