First lady Michelle Obama tells ABC's Barbara Walters that the biggest misconception about her is that she is "confined or trapped" at the White House.

"That couldn't be further from the truth," Mrs. Obama said.

Obama said that she's been able to take on issues that are important to her as well as "travel to see the world." The first lady says she has been "very blessed in this role." Transcript below.

Barbara Walters, "20/20" on ABC News: "What is the biggest misconception about you?"

Michelle Obama: "Someone asked me a question about whether I feel confined or trapped in some way. That couldn't be further from the truth. I couldn't do what Barack does. But I think what I've been able to do; raise my kids, take on issues that matter deeply to me, to travel to see the world. I feel very blessed in this role."

People are also saying, “You tell everybody else how to eat “healthy” yet you eat french fries and slabs of ribs.” How close is that to the truth?

Who thinks this? When *isn’t* she jetsetting and whining (pun intended) and dining on the taxpayer tab?

She burns through OPM like there’s no tomorrow.

If the curtains are missing from the WH when/if they leave, you will know they were separated at birth. Nasty hair. Nasty clothes. Nasty disposition. Surgery and botox up the wazoo. Both the ‘smartest’ women in the world. Sisters from a different mister.

Yes, quite a bit of traveling.

When was the last time many Americans saw a modest vacation, let alone "travel the world?"

It is instructive that she is so misinformed about our “misconceptions”. No one in the country thinks she is trapped there since she is hardly ever there. She must think we don’t know that.

We were the ones trapped when we were saddled with her queer husband as the terrorist in our whitehouse and Michelle Obama is as bad a First Lady as BHO is as president. The worst in our history and an abomination to freedom loving Americans. Our God gave us the gift of freedom and look at what we did with His gift. What a damned disgrace that pair is! And what a disgrace that Americans put them into office.

Probably ought to check on the White House silverware and china when these two scumbags vacate—along with priceless paintings, antique furniture, and AF1.

Mercifully, I missed this media slobberfest. These people are arrogant, ignorant and downright evil. I feel sorry for the daughters. Their upbringing probably borders on child abuse. Being taught that the world owes them everything. I can imagine 20 years from now one or both of them will be found dead in a gutter somewhere.

That’s what it’s all about to you, isn’t it, Michelle. You are trash and the highest your ghetto mentality can come up with is that “I get to travel”. Not that this is a unique opportunity to serve your country. You and your trash husband can think no higher than seeing this as having won the lottery, unless using the power of the office to enact your gangland mentality of grudges and paybacks, whether on a person or a whole nation. You are no part of the legacy of George Washington and the other great men who have served in this office.

What freaks me out is those czars who have been working nonstop to dismantle the United States of America unfettered and unsupervised since dickhead took office.

I can only hope the next president turns his back on these pieces of excrement and walks away when they take their final leave on Air Force ZERO like they did to President Bush to make their dinner reservations their first night in the White Hut.

She’s either out of touch with 99% of Americans, or knows how offensive her comments are, says them anyway, and doesn’t care. Either way, keep talking because it doesn’t help your husband.

Any doubt this broad is just on an extended vacation at our expense and these two idiots will run up at least 1 billion on this crap before the end of his first term. Second term if he makes it will be at least 3 billion more.

OMG - didn’t her mother ever tell her never to wear ten pieces of jewelry at one time? and never wear gaudy ostentatious pieces? She dresses like she was raised in a barn.

I think the proper term is called "Nouveau Riche!"

She’s no more trapped there than any other first lady, and even less so because of all her whirlwind vacations. Give me 4 years in the White House. I would feel like I’m on a 4 year vacation in a glorious vacation wonderland. How can you feel “trapped” in the White House?

We are the “suckas” paying for it.

Most of the Obama supporters are being paid by the Gubmint just for breathing, so we are the “suckas” paying for that as well.

Merry Christmas fellow SUCKAS!

I think we need to send Michelle to Antarctica for a month’s summer vacation [it’s summer there now]. I hear the outside temps are in the “balmy” 40 degree range. She could visit all the U.S. scientific sites and spread sweetness and light to those at the bottom of the world. Or, if we could plan it correctly, she’d be marooned there and have to “winter over” along with her entourage.
