LOS ANGELES (AP) Gabby Douglas admitted indulging in post-Olympics fast food to the wrong person: First lady and healthy eating advocate Michelle Obama, who teased the gymnastics champion.
"You're setting me back, Gabby," Obama told Douglas during a taping Monday for NBC's "Tonight Show," according to a network transcript. "Sorry!" replied the 16-year-old athlete, who confessed to chowing down on a McDonalds' breakfast sandwich after winning two gold medals at the just-ended London Olympics.
Douglas became the third straight U.S. athlete and first African-American to win the all-around title. She and her teammates gave the U.S. its first Olympic title in women's gymnastics since 1996.

You tell her “thunder thighs”!
Do her jaws come unhinged to accommodate a larger prey?
Just reading the NBC transcript does no justice to this total non story. It was a very light hearted echange, with much laughter on everyone’s part.
One of Moochelle’s a$$ cheeks is bigger than Gabby’s entire body and Much has the nerve to tell Gabby what to eat???
Well, that's one thing an Obama and I agree on.
When Michelle backs up, you can hear the beeper. BEEP, BEEP, BEEP.
Moo slapped down Leno.
The comment was a silly joke.........Sheesh people I feel like I opened up a DU thread.
So you've been here since 1999 and you think this is JUST a light-hearted story?????????????? Gabby should be the first lady and Moochella should be in Federal Prison! Man, you just don't get it, do you!
What’s wrong with an egg mcmuffin? Under 300 calories, loaded with protein - I pick one up every day on my way home after my morning workout to go with a bowl of oatmeal, a bananna and a half gallon of skim milk.
Who the hell would come here and LURK since 1999 waiting for your chance to make Moochella seem normal. Man, stop posting or get over to DU.
Sorry, but there is no fraternizing with the open enemy of this country. Someone who wasn't proud of America until a dyed-in-the-wool Marxist was installed as president is worthy of all the contempt that true Americans can muster.
The truth is that govt is dictating what and how we eat, even to the point of making it illegal to sell some items we could purchase just a few months ago. There would be no “silly joke” if we weren’t being controlled. This is more sad than funny.
The comment was a silly joke.........Sheesh people I feel like I opened up a DU thread.
I saw it on the news this morning and thought it was pretty cute. Some here think they are at DU where they have to get mad at everything. There is NO WAY that we are going to be able to bitch and complain about them making fun of the next First Lady. If you give it out, you need to take it. I hope Mrs. Romney has thick skin because she will be crusified and the conservatives can’t say a word. Conservatives make fun of Michelle’s hair, clothes, looks, etc. Mrs. Romney should be open to be made fun of on every thing except the MS.
Have you purchased a Happy Meal for your daughter lately? They come with about ten French fries and a plastic baggy of rotted apple slices. And have you looked at school menus from around the country? People are not amused.
There is a special place in hell reserved for all the hypocrites.
If MO actually practiced what she preached, she would get more respect. But she is constantly chowing down on fattening food, which makes her a hypocrite. If the woman had any class, she would have praised Gabby for being a fit athelete and an excellent role model for young people, and left off any snarky remarks.
Go fly a kite
I don’t see why it had to be politicized. I don’t like the Obamas anymore than the ne t FReeper, but for crying out loud...
I’ve given up........
Why would I buy a Happy Meal for a 14yo? And what does the rest of your comments have to do with the topic at hand?
My daughter is quite familiar with Mrs. Obama’s stand on fast food and thinks it’s none of her business - but even she laughed when she saw the clip on the news this morning.
Does she have any idea how many calories an Olympic Athlete burn a day? Does she realize they ain't gonna build a lot of muscle being vegan they need protein? Has she ever fed an Athlete training at this level? I know someone that does, and their secret weapon is a home-made egg-a-muffin w/ bacon to get the "B" vitamins for their brain to keep them focused before an event. Hopefully when these kids make it, get the Gold and visit the Whitehouse, they will not have a sanctimonious food Guru their to bust their chops...
One of my personal favorite outcomes from The One losing in November will be the disappearance of Moochie from the airwaves, especially NBC w/Leno and the Today Show.
And it was supposed to be “cute” when The First Lady chastized Gabby that that Egg McMuffin had better have been on Wheat bread at least and we know it wasnt as they don’t sell wheat muffins at McDonalds.
Even if MO ought to be in prison (and I think there's a far better case against BO, Holder, and others in the administration than against MO herself), that doesn't mean that every single thing she does is an outrage. It was a joke. Gabby took it as such. Leno took it as such. Anyone who wasn't LOOKING for an outrage took it as such. Lighten up.
Oh for cryin’ out loud — it was not chastizing - and Gabby went back at her with “salad.”
And conservatives refer to liberals as the perpetually offended - sheesh.
Michelle shoud tend to her own McMuffins.
what a POS
Who criticizes a 16 yr old girl about her weight?
Especially when the kid just won multiple Olympic Gold Medals?
Moochelle’s narcissism and sense of superiority (actually inferiority) reach deep, not just over white folk but black achievers, too
I hope Mickey D’s gives Gabby a big fat endorsement contract
Miss Gabby. You should learn now, Wookie Wide Load is not looking after your best interest. In other words, she is as usual lying.
She didnt say anything about salad. Moochelle did chastise her maybe in sa joming way, but are you so naive you don’t see the hidden meaning there? The jab about, “It better have been on whole wheat bread at least” was the kind of snarky remark a total A-hole would make. I don’t care how cute or way you sugar coat it. Those are the remarks of a scumbag. And when Moochelle asked her, Gabby nodded meekly that it was Whole wheat (which we know it wasnt as McDonalds doesn;t offer whole wheat muffins for Egg mcMuffins) to get her off her back. She didnt say anything about salad.
All jokes aside, Michelle Obama is simply a bully.
Her behavior towards her husband, her kids, and anyone unfortunate enough to interact with her clearly demonstrates this. She attempts to conceal it with a smile or a nervous laugh but it’s still quite obvious.
What I’m really surprised at that I have not read on here yet or even in the hundreds of comments from the original Yahoo source of this story, No one mentioned the segment of her screwing with the Secret Service who are paid to protect her and she will do crap to make their job more difficult. Moochelle was laughing about it but I did not find it funny at all. It seems the reports of her distain for the Secret Service is more true than I thought after hearing her own words saying as such.
This was nothing more than lighthearted banter - y'know, the type of back-and-forth that is typical on late night talk shows like Leno.
Moreover, you're wrong. Douglas very clearly did mention a salad, jokingly. And when MO said something (again, jokingly) to the effect of "I'm sure it was on a whole wheat muffin," LENO (not Douglas) said something about it being on a whole wheat bun.
if she had any class or grace she would have quietly let Gabby Douglass have her moments But she had to butt in.
"Yeah, Gabby, we don't, don't encourage him. [Laughter] I'm sure it"
DOUGLAS: A salad.
Obama didn't finish her sentence before Gabby says, "A salad" which is odd and there is no reason she would have mentioned it other than she timed it wrong from where they rehearsed it.
Jokingly or not, this is the type of overreaching nature of a socialist type liberal like MO
I will take my “naivete” as you call it over your blind hatred and the totally unnecessary foul language you employed.
hate on them all you wish - but what ever happened to the ban on foul language on this site?
Your post was more than offensive because of your choice of language.
give it a break.
