Skip to comments.Obama: Michelle 'Bad Example for Pay Equality' Because She Works for Free
Posted on 06/19/2014 9:20:28 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Jumping on the bandwagon Hillary Clinton revved up with her comment saying she and her husband were broke when they left the White House, Barack Obama said Tuesday that his wife is "kind of a bad example" for the need for pay equality because she does the arduous job of being First Lady for free.
At a discussion regarding manufacturing in Pittsburgh, Obama said, "I will say, the first lady's kind of a bad example because the first lady doesn't get paid. And she works pretty hard," then quickly added, "obviously, we're ok."
Obama touted Michelle Obamas hard-nosed attitude when she interviewed for jobs before her current job. He bragged:
When she worked at the University of Chicago hospital, her first interview, she actually brought Sasha into the meeting with the CEO. She just wanted to kind of see, all right, how is he going to respond? Sasha was still in the bassinet -- you know, the car seat thing.
Michelles point, according to her husband? To inform her prospective employer, "this is who I am." He then imitated his wifes argument:
I think I can do a really good job. But it means that if I have to take her to a pediatrician I don't want to have to argue about whether or not I can do that. And if you are supportive of my efforts with my family, then you're going to get 110 percent out of me. But you've got to have some flexibility in terms of time and so forth....

I do the arduous job of living in America while you are president, and I do that for free...
What she does is work?
She works for free and costs the taxpayers of the USA a fortune since she lives more extravagantly than any queen in the world. She vacations as if that were her job. She’s shameless in her pigging out at the public trough, yet to liberals she’s “not getting paid” rhetoric resonates. Poor thing. Get a job.
Whoa ? wait a mintute ? what about all the feminist wives giving their husbands hell and telling them that they don’t work for free and need to be paid to be a house wife ?
Worse than a enlarged painful prostate, gall stones and kidney stones ?
She doesn’t work. She lives the life of an A list celebrity, but without ever having earned the money.
She goes to all the cool places, and gives her opinion. That’s her whole gig.
Lyndsey Lohan and Miley Cyrus deserve more respect. At least when they party and live the high life, it’s on their own dime.
Did Michelle send the Kenyan out to lobby for salaries for the first lady? She’s already vacationing every other week at taxpayer expense.
her last vacation alone cost the tax payers more than any 99 percenter will ever earn in their life time. Free? I think not.
Works? Really? I don’t recall electing her to any job, do you?
What crap. The bs job she had at U of C was pure patronage for the newly elected state senator BO. As he rose in power she kept getting 50% raises til she was making 300,000 when he was elected president. They’ve been telling us for years you can’t even ask about marital status or family requirements, and she brings a baby to an interview? He’s been taking lessons from “Sir Edmond” Hillary Clinton.
Yes, this started several years ago.
No, she eats for free. Big difference
Please tell me what her job actually is please.
Obama: Michelle ‘Bad Example for Pay Equality’ Because She Works for Free
Is he saying shes a slave on his plantation...him being da man ???
Obama: Michelle ‘Bad Example for Pay Equality’ Because She Works for Free
I’ve got a great idea to fix that.
Lets give Michelle a nice job so she can stay out of our business and out of our lives.
What exactly does he do, Barry Girl?
So being a pain in the ass should be a paying job?
Yes, and it is big, isn't it? I mean, if you are unfortunate enough to walk behind her, you will get a full dose of that monstrosity that follows her around, and contains her brains.
Wrong, Dorkus. You work so she can build the future with her kids for your grandkids. Oh, I forgot, that makes me a racist.
No, she eats for free. Big differenceShe may not pay for it, but it's DEFINITELY not "free".
She works for nothing, except for hundred grand outfits and million dollar vacations around the globe. But, yeah, other than that, nothing. Oh, that and room and board are paid for. But, other than that, nothing.
Loathsome: Disgust, repulsion, revulsion.
Yeah, that pretty much describes our feelings about the gruesome twosome.
And just when you don’t think you can be any more repulsed, they do something like this—suggesting that, Hey! we’re getting a great deal ‘ cause this 200 lb. leech isn’t drawing a paycheck.
She eats h e r weight @ day. Be gone vile Wookie!
Yeah, I’m paying for that big ass b*** to eat lobster while she forces everyone to eat her stinkin’ carrots. GO AWAY MOOCH!
Yeah folks, be sure to make all sorts of demands at your job interview and see how that works out for ya.
Well, if we can’t use her “job” as FLOTUS as an example of “pay equality”, then let’s go back to her last *paying* job. Tell me how she gets paid $300,000 for doing essentially nothing at that hospital. They never filled that vacancy when she left to become FLOTUS, so apparently she wasn’t doing anything vital to the business. Sounds an awful lot like the kind of crap libs love to accuse actual business CEOs of doing (except the CEOs actually provide value to their company).
... Our American president .... Is not a friend of America!
If you had a husband that was worth a half billion (including his PAC money) and all your bills, expenses, and vacations paid for by taxpayer $$$ would you really need to work? Once again Obama just doesn’t understand the plight of normal people because he has no reference point of understanding or experience in suffering.
Looking at her super expensive lavish lifestyle and the lack of anything positive she has to contribute in return to us for it all.....It’s incredible she’s so ashamed of our country. Maybe living In A country which is so foolish as to waste tens of millions on a single welfare case like this -—— is the cause if her being so ashamed of USA?
When she said “For the first time in my adult (?) life, I’m proud of my country”, I wonder what country she was talking about.
We would save millions of dollars by paying her 100 grand a year and make her pay for her vacations out of her own pocket.
If anyone works for free, it sure ain’t Michelle Obama. She has used our tax money to satisfy her wildest dreams and I bet a lot of it has found it’s way into shall we say some unidentified accounts.
That was the interview for the $300K no-show position? Which was abolished when she left it? Yeah, right.
Again, he shows his ignorance.
Works for free?
Gimmes a break. She’s a house wife, supporting her husband, who brings in the big bucks, uses his expense account for bene’s and even gets his employer to allow use of the private plane and pays for vacations.
Not exactly unpaid...
Let’s see, constitutionally speaking there is no mention of FLOTUS receiving renumeration under Article II or any duties of that office. Congress should gut that budget.
POTUS receives $400k per year for being president, plus:
Free room and board
Free medical care
Free office space
Free house keeping and gardening
Anyone care to put a taxpayer price tag on that?
Gazillion dollar vacations. Parties the public is not supposed to know about.
This guy puts his foot in it.
If Ronald Reagan said this about Nancy, there would be a public free for all!
She doesn’t work for free. She works for $100 million dollar vacations.
let’s call her vacations “compensation” and tax them
“The bs job she had at U of C was pure patronage for the newly elected state senator BO”
After 30 plus years in health care, I’m still fuzzy on the need for 6 figure “Diversity Coordinators”.
Barack Obama said Tuesday that his wife is “kind of a bad example” for the need for pay equality because she does the arduous job of being First Lady for free
FOR FREE? You are such a sack of crap. Your wife gets free housing, free utilities, free entertainment, free food, free medial care, free personal protection, free transportation, free maids, free assistants, and on and on..........
why is anyone shocked? It is the same attitude of all who go to the government for “free stuff.”
The thing that is laughable are the “free” perks, outrageously ugly clothes and millions of dollars in vacations.
Don’t know if I would want to have my family need secret service for the rest of their lives.
Obama just admitted moochelle should be hired but not to work as hard or as much as someone else for the same pay because she has a kid.
