Michelle 'loves french fries, pizza,' president reveals on Leno show

Michelle 'loves french fries, pizza,' president reveals on Leno show By Geneva Sands-Sadowitz - 10/26/11 09:54 AM ET

President Obama said his wife loves pizza and french fries during his appearance Tuesday night on Jay Leno's show.

Though the first lady has used her office to campaign against obesity and to tout healthy eating habits, she's OK with fattier foods in moderation, Obama said.

Obama made the remarks after Leno questioned whether the first lady would be upset with her husband's Monday visit to Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles, a famous soul-food restaurant in Hollywood.

"Michelle — quiet as this is kept — she loves french fries, she loves pizza, she loves chicken. Her point is just in moderation, so she does not get upset as long as, you know, it's not every day," Obama said.

He said he just couldn't resist the wings at Roscoe's, where he surprised patrons by making a brief stop.

"Originally it was just a way to be out there and say hi to everybody, but once we got in the car it smelled pretty good," said Obama on NBC's "The Tonight Show" Tuesday.

The president said he ordered the "Country Boy" special, which included wings and waffles with hot sauce.

"So, I'm eating the wings, got the hot sauce on there, you know, fancy presidential limousine smelling like chicken," added Obama.

The president was in California for campaign fundraisers and to promote his new housing initiative.

Obama told "The Tonight Show" host that he ate the food on his way to a fundraiser with celebrity guests including Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.

"Suddenly we pull up and my sleeves are rolled up and I got a spot on my tie … it was not elegant, but outstanding chicken," Obama said.

If she wasn’t posturing as the new world icon of healthy eating, along with her cigarette smoking husband, this issue would be moot. But they are posing as paragons of healthy lifestyles.

They are lucky their voters are so stupid and unprincipled.

I forget which reporter said he saw Moochelle on her HI vacation eat an entire rack of ribs, by herself in one setting. It wasn't a small slab of ‘baby-backs’ either, the entire rib section off one side of a hog!

She didn't get that huge azz 2 Axe handles wide eating carrot sticks.

Junk Food Junkie - Larry Groce

You know I love that organic cooking
I always ask for more
And they call me Mr. Natural
On down to the health food store
I only eat good sea salt
White sugar don’t touch my lips
And my friends is always
Begging me to take them
On macrobiotic trips
Yes, they are

Oh, but at night I stake out my strongbox
That I keep under lock and key
And I take it off to my closet
Where nobody else can see
I open that door so slowly
Take a peek up north and south
Then I pull out a Hostess Twinkie
And I pop it in my mouth

Yeah, in the daytime I’m Mr. Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I’m a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

Well, at lunchtime
You can always find me
At the Whole Earth Vitamin Bar
Just sucking on my plain white yogurt
From my hand thrown pottery jar
And sippin’ a little hand pressed cider
With a carrot stick for dessert
And wiping my face
In a natural way
On the sleeve of my peasant shirt
Oh yeah

Ah, but when that clock strikes midnight
And I’m all by myself
I work that combination
On my secret hideaway shelf
And I pull out some Fritos corn chips
Dr. Pepper and an Ole Moon Pie
Then I sit back in glorious expectation
Of a genuine junk food high

Oh yeah, in the daytime I’m Mr. Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I’m a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

My friends down at the commune
They think I’m pretty neat
Oh, I don’t know nothing about arts and crafts
But I give ‘em all something to eat
I’m a friend to old Euell Gibbons
And I only eat homegrown spice
I got a John Keats autographed Grecian urn
Filled up with my brown rice
Yes, I do

Oh, but folks lately I have been spotted
With a Big Mac on my breath
Stumbling into a Colonel Sanders
With a face as white as death
I’m afraid someday they’ll find me
Just stretched out on my bed
With a handful of Pringles Potato Chips
And a Ding Dong by my head

In the daytime I’m Mr. Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I’m a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

It’s truly abusive. Undermining one’s wife’s femininity, and the one public project that gives her respect apart from her husband. (I’m making no compliments to her femininity or respect, but that he’s tearing her down).

He did this before with “don’t get between Michelle and a (burrito/tamale?)”

I don’t mind her eating. She knows what she’s doing.

But I mind her telling us what to eat while she’s not following her own advice. Again, she knows what she’s doing.

Wait a minute, let me get this straight...

Barry just said on national TV that Mooochelle likes pizza and french fries, the same Moooochelle that’s raging mad and ready to sue Paula Dean for lies and slander, because Paula just said in her recent book that Moooochelle likes to eat fried food.

Sounds like Barry’s sleeping on the couch tonight.

I just imagine both of them smelling — with the high amount of junk food (and just eating out in general) they shovel in incessantly. It’s just not a healthy lifestyle. I’m no purist or vegan, but all the photos I see of them gorging make me ill.

I’m surprised he didn’t mention watermelon in that list. He is definitely going in the dog house for this one!

I think he does it to get under OUR skin. Obama has enough intelligence and insight to know the hypocrisy of his statements. It’s a dig to infuriate us - his base doesn’t care.
Even though the topic in this instance is something as benign as food, it’s still representative of his mindset and arrogance.

Interesting, this story broke yesterday.




First lady MICHLLE OBAMA fuming as PAULA DEEN dishes on her unhealthy eating habits despite new book “American Grown” PR blitz!

MICHELLE OBAMA is now furious with S o u t h e r n cooking queen PAULA DEEN for crowing that the first lady, a healthy-eat­ing advocate who’s waging a war against childhood obesity, pigs out on fatten­ing foods.

While plugging her new book, “Paula Deen’s Southern Cooking Bible,” the feisty TV chef took a pot shot at Michelle for gorging herself on greasy french fries, fatty hot chicken wings and sug­ary deep-fried Snickers bars!

“Michelle’s spitting mad,” a source told The ENQUIRER.

“She thinks Paula is trying to smear her and her family just as the 2012 presidential election race swings into gear.”

The trouble first be­gan before Barack Obama was even elected president in 2008, when Michelle made a guest appearance on Deen’s popular “Paula’s Party” show and revealed that fried shrimp was her family’s favorite meal.

Then in an interview af­ter filming the program, Paula quipped that Michelle would be serving high-fat, greasy and sugary foods in the White House if Obama won the elec­tion!

Now Paula is rehashing those at­tacks on Michelle in an attempt to plug her latest cookbook and offset Michelle's new book about eating healthy, noted the source.

“She’s no different than the rest of us,” Paula said about Michelle in a new interview.

Paula added: “She probably ate more than any other guest I ever had on the show! She kept eating even dur­ing commercials. Know what (the Obamas’) favorite foods are? Hot wings. Y’know – those kinds of foods that aren’t necessarily top-of-the-list healthy foods.”

“Michelle now deeply regrets ever being on Paula’s show,” added the source. “There are a lot of digs she would have been able to brush off, but portray­ing her as a high-calorie gorger during her crusade for healthy eating is crossing the line.”

He admits right here that it was just a photo-op.
