Michelle Obama, the most glamorous of all U.S. First Ladies, dazzled the crowd at a DNC fundraiser Tuesday night wearing over $42,000 worth of diamond bracelets ($42,150 to be precise). Designed by Katie Decker, a 23-year-old Texas-based jeweller, the First Lady dropped a few dimes on some serious bling:
(Daily Mail) - The First Lady, 47, chose to wear Miss Decker's Lotus cuff, with 2.9 carats of diamonds, costing $15,000, the Gothic cuff with 2.17 carats of diamonds, costing $15,350, and the $11,800 Quatrefoil bracelet with 1.73 carats of diamonds to the Gotham Hall event.
Damn, for that kind of money - and all the publicity Ms. Decker is about to receive - the Obama's better hope they will be getting a little kickback for Barack's 2012 campaign. Just look at that endorsement:
She might as well change her name to Simon Cowell and slightly turn her hand every time she takes a sip of Coca-Cola (Ahem, I mean Pepsi).
Just shiny peas. Chicago thugcrat peas.
She should be dressed in sackcloths an ashes. Shameful optics for a President that is all about optics.
Plus her arms look MANLY!!
You have got to be $h1++1N me!
“At some point, haven’t you made enough money?”
It’s good to be Queen.
Did she cut her hair off or is that a wig?
Where's my favorite picture of the dog walking Michelle...the one where her bra strap is hanging out...
(Barky’s taxes are too low and he has too much extra money, because of George Bush and those evil do-nothing republicans)
"The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more. "
Her hair has always been short. Most of the time, she wears wigs.
When you opponent is digging a hole for themselves let them keep shoveling....
In other news, unemployment for black youth remains at record highs, reduced only by death due do to gun fire...
No, she didn't.
All of it was loaned...a common practice, one which Nancy Reagan and Laura Bush also participated in.
To present it as a purchase by the Sasquatch, is to perpetuate a nasty intimation that the taxpayers may have been screwed into buying this crap for her.
I do not, cannot stand the fact that the jug-eared idiot is the POTUS and he has a Sasquatch, the nasty, pushy, overbearing zero that she is, for a FLOTUS, but we should not participate in the subtle crap-slinging that this is.
I ignore very much of what she does and I realize that she has no compunctions about spending the taxpayers money, but in this case, it's off base and uncalled for.
We should pursue the truth and leave the crap-flinging to the monkeys in the cage.
Her husband is ten times softer than thos diamonds. That’s why she needs so many
