Obama: Michelle was teasing Leno, not Gabby
politico44 ^ | 8/15/12 | DONOVAN SLACK

Posted on 08/15/2012 9:01:46 AM PDT by ColdOne

President Barack Obama, in an Iowa radio interview broadcast Wednesday, tried to set the record straight on his wife's ribbing of Gabby Douglas for eating McDonalds after her gold medal win.

First lady Michelle Obama teased the Olympian during an appearance on Jay Leno on Monday, but the president said Douglas was not her target.

"You know, the truth is the first lady was teasing Jay Leno, not Gabby, because Gabby can afford anything because she’s so fit," Obama said in an interview

Yeah, back peddling again.

Gold medalist, Gabby, shouldn't celebrate eating an Egg McMuffin.

You didn't build that.

Their going to put y'all back in chains.

We're going to continue to redistribute the wealth.

We will bankrupt the coal industry.

Your electric rates will necessarily skyrocket.

Why can’t he just say that she shouldn’t have harassed the young lady? Instead the liar has to lie and say she was talking to Leno! What the hell’s the matter with this illegal-alien jerk.

We all know what she said and to whom she said it. How can he lie so easily?

Just keep digging. It is not up to Obama, his wife, or anyone in the government to decide who is fit and who is not, who gets to eat a cheeseburger, slice of pizza or egg mcmuffin, and how often they get to eat one. This is the whole point of the criticism.

Wouldn’t that be the same argument as “nobama doesn’t want to destroy Free America, he wants to help it”? Spare me. nobama (and his grifter family) should be in prison.

So much cluelessness.

The point is that Michelle Obama has no business lecturing ANYONE about what they choose to eat.

Yes, of course, and Hussein was OBVIOUSLY talking about roads and bridges, not small businesses, when he said, “You didn’t build that”.

Remember Hussein Heads, to tell your lies FREQUENTLY enough, like your LEFTIST Nazi heroes told you to!

Gabby is an adorable young lady...the first lady makes a joke on a TeeVee show...how this warrants serious political discussion is indicative of some peoples’ need for a life. Sheeesh... a complete non-story.

Well that's not fair. Gabby didn't get fit by herself! Without the fat janitor, she couldn't have used the gym! Why should only Gabby be allowed an Egg McMuffin?

I'm sure the Illinois-based McDonald's Corporation is just thrilled with Muchelle's support.

Didn't they get an Obama Deathcare waiver? I'm sure they'll just BOHICA from the Dems.

I didn't watch any of the Olympics, and haven't watched any of NBC's Olympic "coverage" in years.

I'm betting that McDonald's was a sponsor, though.

Hah- must be getting some backlash from that event. What angered me the most is that Moochelle the cow had to insert herself when Jay was interviewing Gabby. First Bimbo just couldn’t shut up and stay out of the conversation.

Has he taken her medals to spread the medals around? Not everyone is as flexible as she is, and they need recognition and self esteem too.

You know, it wasn't so much what she said, but the fact that she couldn't just sit there and let this young lady have a bit of her well-earned fame without intruding and making herself, and her bogus "issue," the center of attention.

She's a classless boor.

Yes, everyone in the Olympics should get medals. Because they all worked hard, most are smart, all showed up for their events. It seems so unfair that some get medals and others do not, when they all worked hard. (/s)
