Michele Obama Scolds Olympics Hero Gabby Douglas for Eating an Egg McMuffin
NewsBusters ^ | 8/14/12 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 08/14/2012 6:36:59 AM PDT by erod

JAY LENO, HOST: You trained your whole life, you win. How did you celebrate? What did you do?

GABBY DOUGLAS: We didn't have time to celebrate. It was team finals and had to turn the page all-around finals and event finals after that. But, after the competition, I splurged on an Egg McMuffin at McDonald’s.

LENO: Egg McMuffin.

[Laughter]

MICHELLE OBAMA: Yeah, Gabby, we don't, don't encourage him. [Laughter] I'm sure it was on…

DOUGLAS: A salad.

OBAMA: a whole wheat McMuffin.

LENO: It was on a whole wheat bun.

OBAMA: Yeah.

LENO: So an Egg McMuffin. Very good.

[Light laughter]

OBAMA: You're setting me back, Gabby.

DOUGLAS: Sorry.

OBAMA: It's so hard.

For all I know, Michael Phelps is a huge leftwinger but he regularly eats a ton of stuff that M. Obama wouldn't care for. I believe rice pudding every morning? Yeah, he works it off but America's first Nanny doesn't seem to care. She is a zealot

When you work out as hard as Gabby, you can eat whatever you please.
Especially when the games are over.
Michelle's "I can't have a burger so you can't have one either" is standard commie resentment against people who work harder.

I’m surprised MObama didn’t also criticize the poor child on her hair.

The young woman won gold medals for freak sakes. And all people like Moose can do is give her a hard time over trivial stuff like this.

No kidding.

Stuff some more BBQ ribs, lobster, cheeseburgers, ice cream and pies into your face Mooshelle, while you lecture others on what not to eat.

Can’t any part of America figure this out yet?

And I assume that McDonalds Corporation continues to donate to Democrats and liberal causes. Stockholders should have a say in this slam against McDonalds by the FLOTUS.

As you can see yesterday McDonalds stock dropped.

Egg Mcmuffins are actually a pretty healthy breakfast. High in protein with egg, cheese and Canadian bacon, plus Canadian bacon is one of the lowest fat breakfast meats you can eat.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a Mcmuffin for breakfast. It has just the right stuff and in the right quantities to start the day. The only reason Obuttma is mad is because it is from a successful company not under government control........

The ironic thing is that egg McMuffins are actually a healthy food, they are one of the least bad things you can order on the McDonald's menu.

Not that it should matter what Gabby Douglas chooses to eat.

An Egg McMuffin contains Canadian Bacon.

This wide-load mouthy busybody wants an ATHLETE, who expends more calories in half an hour than Mooch does in two days, to eat salads instead of protein and good quality carbs. Proof, as if needed, that leftwingers never know WTH they are talking about.

She needs to go harass her limp-wristed husband about his endless hot dogs, pies, and ice cream.

Someone as young as Gabby, who I’m sure has a high metabolism, and wins Olympic gold medals doesn’t need a lecture from someone who has the butt the size of a Buick.

Maybe it was different if you actually saw the segment, but it sure reads like an overbearing food Nazi beating up a kid who has worked very hard and can eat anything she wants anyway. Too bad Gabby didn't come back and say something like it wasn't for Obama to tell her what she should eat.

The exchange I like to have heard:

OBAMA: You’re setting me back, Gabby.

DOUGLAS: Sorry, but you really haven’t made progress. As a matter of fact, I’ve wondered... do you have to pay for two seats when you fly... oh, wait... THE TAXPAYERS pay for your vacations. So, why again are you bothering me?

Up here in the great white north the term Canadian Bacon is seldom heard. Bacon yes but the point of origin of the piggy seems irrelevant. London Broil is another term that seems specific to the US. We do use french fries however. :)

That’s because Gabby is adorable and full of laughter.

Cynicism about Mrs. Obama and her healthy eating campaign while she eats whatever she wants must be common among the press as well as the public for this story to have this headline.

I just watched clips from Gabby’s appearance with Leno, and Gabby is wonderful. I hope she is steered away from these people with causes and that she maintains her joy for life.

Sorry, but I am going to have to disagree. The last four years have been miserable for most Americans. This women is a control freak and she parades around the world eating Wagu beef, stuffing her face with lobster, and scarfing down ice cream while she tells all of us that we have to cut back on what we're eating.

Seriously, screw these people, even if Michelle's comments were in the context of a "joke," I really don't care I'm tired of the soft tyranny that this administration practices on us. It doesn't make a difference to me that she tells people "light heatedly" to not eat Egg McMuffins or have a piece of pie on Thanksgiving. Libs like Moochelle want control, they won't rest until their boot is forever on our necks.

What's notable here is that this one-trick-horse First Food Nazi seems to have absolutely zero depth as a First Lady...unlike other First Ladies. (I don't think she's very bright.)

Every freaking word out of this woman's mouth is about freaking FOOD. What people are sick of is not the "light-hearted or not light-hearted," it's the incessant tip-of-her-tongue FOOD FOOD FOOD.

Mooselle: READ SOME BOOKS or FIND SOME OTHER HOBBIES OR INTERESTS of/for which to converse/interact with others.

Please just PARK IT for a minute with the FOOD . For crying out loud she's creating more eating-disordered kids than those that would otherwise be well-adjusted and proportionally-informed regarding nutrition and food.

I see the Obama girls as developing major "food issues" as adults due to a mother that obviously has only ONE (obsessive and control-of-others) interest.

It's like Mooselle is a big one-chip robot with a whistle and a portable doctor's scale.

I thought that north of the border Canadian Bacon was referred to as “back bacon”? At least that’s what those two great arbiters of Canadian culture, Bob and Doug MacKenzie have taught me.

I agree with you about Gabby.

Where I live is considered part of the Virginia Beach TV market, and since she is a “hometown girl” we have been seeing lots of her on the evening news. Maybe it is that familiarity with her, I didn’t think anything of the segment last night other than some good natured fun.

Well, if you think about McDonald’s, Ray Kroc did not build that chain into one of the biggest companies of any kind in the world. His franchiseees did not build their own businesses under the umbrella of the McDonald’s corporation.

Remember, people had to drive their cars on publicly funded roads to get to McDonald’s. Also, their employees went to public school. McDonald’s stores are connected to public water and sewer systems. They are connected to the electric grid which has public oversight, if not government ownership. The delivery trucks which deliver supplies drive on government roads, and the trucks have EPA mandated pollution controls and required government inspections. And the truck drivers went to public school.

For so many reasons such as these, we can conclude that Ray Kroc and the Mc Donald’s franchisees did not build up their businesses to get that corporation to where it is today.

(sarcasm)
