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.

Yep. Secret Service got there first, just as I thought.
Look around the store behind her. Have you ever seen a Target so lacking in people. One lady right behind her is probably an assistant. Two checkers looking bored, that's it. It is a complete photo-op. They probably closed down the entire store, grabbed a couple of bags and random crap to put in it and took this 'staged' photo. I'm sure after this shot was snapped, she dropped the bags and had her assistant go to a custom designer for all her trappings.
They must have had a tarp sale....
Didn’t know they had a Target up at Cape Cod?
Pray for America
What a load of crap.
I recognize the Secret Service guy.
Where are the dark glasses and earpiece!!!
I see this now...
I figured she was ghetto enough to do something like this.
It’s not out of the realm for her to be caught doing something we’re not supposed to...like buy Chinese products, or eat fast food while she does.
LOL. This is what they’ve been reduced to—sending Hussein’s wife out to pretend like she does her own shopping...at TARGET?!?
BWA HAHA HA HA HA HA HAHA HA HA!
Now, had she snuck into Wal-Mart, now THAT would've been a scandal.
Gonna disinfect Zero's drunk, odoriferous (and illegal) uncle.
That was the first thing I noticed. She's carrying three bags, but pushing an empty cart?
It still looks a bit glossy to me to be done on the spot, but if it can be done, ok.
The aisles aren’t the only WIDE thing in that store ;-)
Does anyone recognize the purse she is carrying? A large leather designer purse like that could cost $2000.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the bag was very expensive. Remember she wore $500 sneakers to a food pantry.
Did she pay for everything with an EBT card?
OK you fashion pros, what is that about a $4,000 handbag?
