I thought Target was non-union?

In other words they wanted to show how she slips out to be with the common folk so they tipped the photographer.

I find this a bit hard to believe without them shutting down a three city block buffer zone and surrounding the place with SS agents.

It looks a little too prepared.

I’m told great colour photoes of that quality can’t just be snapped on the fly, but some prep work is necessary.

Notice there are no other customers shown.

Did Target open the store just for her?

What’s in her cart? Halloween candy?

She even went as far on this photo prop as to hide the Secret Service.

If she’s auditioning for “People of Wal-mart” she needs some leopard-skin stretch pants, a wife-beater shirt over a regular bra, and she needs to BE AT WAL-MART!

A decent digital SLR can do automatic white balance on the fly. Photoshop on the RAW image does the rest.

Most of the housewares for my (detestable) apartment in the Hybla Valley years ago, came from this very Target store.

Because it is fake?

Does anyone think she goes out and does this on her own?

Does anyone think a photographer just happened to see her?

Does anyone think there wasn’t Secret Service everywhere, even before she arrived?

Does anyone think this wasn’t decided and agreed upon at a PR meeting?

I am sure she was tipped off by Mochelle herself..I would not doubt she buys at target she dresses like she buys at Good Will in the maid section..Must be where she buys all those shorts she wears on Air Force One or Two..

3 city block buffer zone? The girl needs a minimum butt zone of 4 city blocks.

Yeah, Presidents and First Ladies just wander off the White House grounds and no body notices. If she didn’t have her SS detail with her, they are now stationed at BFN.

This must be staged. She’s pushing the cart with one hand, carrying the bags in the other. A normal person would put the bags in the cart and push.

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.

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?!?

Can’t.....hold.....back.....laughter....
