President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama saw "Thurgood" on Friday night at the Kennedy Center, taking in a show about Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Justice on the Supreme Court. The one-man production stars Laurence Fishburne, reprising his Broadway performance, and was written by George Stevens Jr., the movie and theater producer who was an early and active Obama presidential supporter, helping to organize the arts community.
Stevens, executive producer of HBO's "We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Event from the Lincoln Memorial," was tapped by the president last September to be Co-Chairman of the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities. The First Couple left the White House at 7:21 p.m. for their night out and were back home on Pennsylvania Avenue at 9:25 p.m. following the 90-minute play.
FOOTNOTE: On Saturday morning, Obama left the White House at 8:36 a.m. to watch daughter Malia play soccer at a school in northwest Washington, standing on the sidelines under a warm sun with the other parents. Mrs. Obama arrived separately and stood next to her husband, with a sweater wrapped around her waist.
President Barack Obama walks to his waiting motorcade after attending his daughter Malia's soccer game at Rudolph Elementary school in Washington, Saturday, June 12, 2010.
How about a show called “Constitution” to balance it out?
Obama is such a loser.
Now this may be a mere technicality: but which "waist" are we talking about -- the one up near her neck, or the the one near her bellybutton (which is probably too wide to tie the arms of her sweater around)?
She’s the national wookie.
She’s neither first, nor a lady.
His sandals are so ghey
Maybe avoiding another bad photo op ...
Still haven’t heard anything from our leader about the Blackhawks Stanley Cup win. Guess he doesn’t consider Hawks fans as his constituents....
Sandals? Really?? And with slacks???
Worst President Ever!!!!!!!!
She so reminds me of Jackie O.
“What’s with the blue shoes?”
Color blind? Might explain a few crimes of fashion!
I’m thrilled that these two slugs had a wonderful evening.
ANOTHER FOONOTE: Sunday morning Barack and Michelle plan on attending church services in the DC area. The colors worn will be Bright Blue, Hot Pink, Blaze Orange, Screaming Yellow,Lime Green,Passion Purple,and Really Red. No press relelease has been issued indicating what colors Michelle will be wearing. Obama = Steve Urkel the second.
My thoughts exactly. The only men I see wearing sandals with slacks around here are the Somalian immigrants.
Actually, I just realized that I have some just like that.
I’M A GIRL.
