Let Them Eat Paint! Michelle Obama Wore $200 Designer T-Shirt for 9/11 Charity Painting
Sunday, September 12, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 09/12/2010 12:24:56 PM PDT by kristinn

I don't know about you, but when I paint fixtures with a sloppy broad brush, I make sure to wear my finest, most expensive designer shirts. Just like Michelle Obama.

Below are photos of Michelle "Antoinette" Obama wearing a $207.90 t-shirt by Tom Binns and John Eshaya at a National Day of Service and Remembrance event at the Vinson Hall Retirement Community in McLean, Va. on Saturday.

I suppose if she got paint on it she can claim it as a charitable deduction. The rich are just different from us.


AP photos

A woman lucky enough to have a job in the Obama economy would have to work nearly 30 hours at the federal minimum wage to be able to afford one of Michelle Obama's throwaway designer painting shirts.

From the looks of that brush, it was dipped once into a paint can and the excess left to run down the handle.

Guananteed that the Wookie never made more than one pass with that brush, and that had to be for the camera and then off to the lobster bar to snack on a 32 ounce tail with a gravy boat full of butter.

Dumbass illitist. Taking our hard earned $200 and buying a shirt to paint in. The second pic of “the first it” holding the brush says it all. “Someone get this icky thing away from me, the photographer is done”. “Smelly commoners”.

I am painting the front doorjamb and nearly got paint on my $5 t-shirt from AC Moore and had a cow. I jumped back and it missed me.

Poor Michelle has to wear $200 shirts. If only she shopped AC Moore!/s

This Spring/Summer capsule collection of oversized tees is a collaboration between jewelry deisgner Tom Binns (whose name you may recognize from here) and fashion consultant John Eshaya.

She’s wearing those $600 tennis shoes too.
I painted my bathroom last weekend. That was my vacation this year. Needless to say, I was not wearing a $200 tshirt and $600 sneaks. I don’t dress that expensively when I go to the office. What an elitist snob.

I would say that Mr. & Mrs. Obama, and maybe all the top-echelon democrats, are tone-deaf about how their richer-than-thou, holier-than-thou democrat party leadership is perceived.

I wouldn’t wear that ugly shirt if you PAID ME $200. Well, maybe I would if her hubbies promises to put gas in my car don’t come thru. Still waiting.

I could have bought 43 t-shirts at Sam's for 207.90 and since I am in Montana, there is NO SALES TAX!

Isn't Montana the greatest?

They aren't even bankrupt like my home in California.

The t-shirt is not the worst thing she’s ever worn. Admittedly that would be hard. But it’s got that QVC look to it.

What’s the story behind that huge vain on her “painting” arm? Did she just finish pumping some iron? The only “muscle” vains you see on her sissy husband are the ones in his forehead from all the strain in destroying a free nation in record time.

"The rich are just different from us."

Please stop repeating this socialist mantra. "The only difference between rich and poor is that the rich have money" --- M. Forbes.

Obamas are different from you and me, but that is because they are class-conscious, elitist pigs, which they were, I assure you even before they became rich.

If this does not help, think of the Rockefeller, the first billionaire, who led a charitable Christian life. Think of Malcolm Forms, whom even envious enemies could never accuse of being elitist. Oprah Winfrey asked him, "How did you manage to raise your children so normal with all that wealth, all those lavish boat parties?" He replied: "Are you kidding? My children hated those parties: they were the ones who cleaned the boat afterward."

Money does not make people more or less moral: people have a choice. The view that the rich are less moral has originated with 19th-century socialists --- Proudhon and particularly Marx. You should be aware of the company you keep.

That thing costs over $200? She should have waited for her change (unless it was given to her which is probably how she got it).

Walmart has better looking t-shirts for around $15!

Well, in this case, don't blame Obamas: it is we ourselves, the people of the United States, gave them millions by buying their books. Yes, we gave her this T-shirt, but we gave it voluntarily. That was the choice the sheeple wanting a messiah made when buying his books.

I found a great sale on the internet and ordered 10 shirts for about $100. Why spend lots of money on something I am going to wear around the house?

...I didn’t buy any of their “books” nor did I vote for them. I’m sure that shirt along with every other tacky item she wears and owns is paid for via tax payer money.

Just as I believe Michelle never had dirt under her fingernails before starting her “garden”, I do not believe she even held a paintbrush before this photo op.

"...I didn’t buy any of their “books” nor did I vote for them."

You must've missed the point: enough people bought his book and made him a millionaire.

"I’m sure that shirt along with every other tacky item she wears and owns is paid for via tax payer money."

You cannot be sure at all, and that was another point. If a person has $5M (inherited or got that as an author) and a $100,000 job at a factory, can you tell where $100 that he paid at a restaurant today came from? Of course not. It can be from his paycheck or it can be from the bank account. I understand that you are angry, but it still helps to make sense. Your post did make any, sorry.

Except ex presidents better post career earning potential; a lot better. Money will never be a problem for either of them, due to sycophants willing to pay them to show up somewhere.

But she sure lacks the sense to stifle her garish and extravagant tastes until you of office.
