Michelle Obama teases Gabby Douglas over fast food
The Virginian Pilot ^ | August 13, 2012 | Lynn Elber

Posted on 08/13/2012 8:26:38 PM PDT by petitfour

Gabby Douglas admitted indulging in post-Olympics fast food to the wrong person: First lady and healthy eating advocate Michelle Obama, who teased the gymnastics champion.

"You're setting me back, Gabby," Obama told Douglas during a taping Monday for NBC's "Tonight Show," according to a network transcript.

"Sorry!" replied the 16-year-old athlete, who confessed to chowing down on a McDonalds' breakfast sandwich after winning two gold medals at the just-ended London Olympics.

Like the First Mooch has never crammed fast food into her ugly pie hole. Geesh!

“Give us this day our daily bread.”

We receive food with thanks to God. It sustains us and keeps us (more or less) content until we reach the life to come. A Big Mac received with thanks to God is no better or worse than a blade of grass.

Michelle has enjoyed some fine chow in her day. I don’t mind that a bit.

Moochelle probably went out and fed her fat face after the taping.

The idiot woman manages to get a beautiful young girl who just won two gold medals to apologize to her. What a classless small minded malcontent.

If she burned calories like Gabby Douglas, she would not weigh twice as much as her husband. Gabby can eat anything she wants,because she is very physically active. Michelle ought to take the hint. Has she been to the White House gym lately?/s

"You're setting me back, Gabby"

With these grifters, it is always me, me, me, I, I, I. Egomaniacal narcissists. A gracious person would have only focused on the accomplishments of the fine young lady and not made herself the topic.

Michelle was looking for a way to say Forward! towards more government control over what you eat and how much you share. Michelle wants a share of Gabby’s GOLD.

I like Gabby’s outfit and love that she is able to go shopping for herself and for her family. She has worked so hard over the years.

It looks like Michelle is trying to appear like Mrs. Cleaver or some such with the flowery kitchen curtain dress. And Gabby is so petite and looks so chic.

Phuk MO. I noticed that NBC has a big interview with MO and Gabby. Usin’ her....as USUAL from the White Hut. ‘Cause ‘she bu-lack ‘n’ stuff’.

Makes me sick. She pulled off a great win for the USA as a TEAM MEMBER. NOT ‘Team Obama’.

Gabby Douglas is a high achiever. That makes her an automatic enemy of the white hut sasquatch.

"You're setting me back, Gabby,"

FLOTUS's petty insecurities must not be exposed! What else to expect from a life-long grifter who wishes she were... Beyonce? Now *there's* a lofty goal.

Our PHAT ASS BUTT ASS OOOOGLY mabelle michelle. BTW, she’s the “stylish” one on the right side. PHAT ASS has been shopping at the flea markets again. This wad of clothing rags probably only cost $4-5000, paid for by you & me, the taxpayers. She’s gotta hate herself when she looks in the mirror in the morning. No wonder 0dumb0 chases after other men (or boys).

And Gabby is homeschooled.

Gabby gives glory to God and acknowledges that God blessed her with the talent to do great gymnastics. She then worked hard to use those talents as best she could.

I love Gabby’s full name: Gabrielle Christina Victoria Douglas.

The Obamas are as big of douches as Kanye West, whether he's on a nationwide tv fundraiser saying "President Bush doesn't like black people" or on a televised awards program interrupting a prize winning recipient.

MO cannot cope with a non-affirmatively selected TRULY TALENTED individual. So, she’s got to do what all idiot liberals do — harp and lecture on sh*t she knows nothing about.

It’s simply this: Energy in, energy out. Gabby burns off 10 big macs probably every amazing workout. Simple metabolic principles, which MO has no clue about,or she wouldn’t be on her endless crusade against junk food ...

"You're setting me back, Gabby," Obama told Douglas...

No one could even remotely set you back as far as you've thrown yourself, Michelle.

And mind your manners - it's Ms. Douglas, to you.

I’m surprised she didn’t add, “And you didn’t earn that medal on your own.”

“You're setting me “back”, Gabby,” said the mooch to Douglas.

A retort to this fat azz who likes to stick her nose into other people's business could go something like this...

“Actually, Mrs. Oboma, I went “FORWARD” and won two gold medals, and had a tasty meal afterward, and I have no regrets.” And say it with a smile.

This b*tch in OUR White House has a big head, a big azz, a big mouth and biceps. And it's gone to her head. If the mooch is going to attempt to chastize people in public, people who know that they may be in her company need to have some prompt commentary in reserve to throw her way when she feels the need to “wag her finger and say, tsk, tsk.” Gotta take a stand somewhere some time. And you can do it with class and a smile.

You know, if she'd stop being such a f---ing meddler, perpetual malcontent, and busybody, no one would care how huge her ass is, or how bad her fashion sense is.

But in any case, it's none of her f---ing business what the rest of us eat. I for one wouldn't take her advice in a million years!

Why couldn't she just have kept her mouth shut? But no, it's always about her. How those two narcissists Michelle and Barack manage to live together is beyond me.

Exactly. If it wasn't something Miss Douglas ate, M.O. would have found some other way to criticize her.

Oh, well. Gabrielle Douglas goes home with gold medals, and Michelle goes home to Barry. Who's a winner, now?

Please excuse me as I indulge in a little fantasy...

"You're setting me back, ExGeeEye," said the First Wookie, as she adjusted her boob-belt.

"Well, I guess it just sucks to be you," I replied, wiping the bacon-grease from my lips.

I put down the napkin, smiled, and continued, "But that's kind of an 'every single day' thing for you, isn't it?"

Ahhhh, that feels so gooooooood.......
