Have to say the hair looks cute..gives her a softer look.
unlike her majesty, Gov. Palin wears stockings with heels.
So, with all there is to criticize, you chose Palin’s legs???
Believe it or not I think the damon attack is going to hurt bama a lot. That was really a cheap shot.
Damon apparently complained about Obama’s being too conservative on some pet issue. Serfs do not complain about the King... not and live.
It really is a wig. Honest.
My two cents on her “look” wonderful if auditioning for a member of ‘Dawn’ at Tony Orlando’s Branson place. But for an almost 50 year FLOTUS...trying too hard to ‘keep it real.’. MAO must be very opinionated, because her latest stylist (Koop) flew the coop (probably because she suggest “Me!chelle, how about trying sleeves for once?’)
Oh, yeah, I know it’s a wig. I did think it softened her look a little, but maybe it was a little far out for a first lady. But, then, we don’t really have a first lady right now, do we?
Wasn’t that the worst display of viciousness by a US prez that you have ever seen?
This dinner traditionally is a roast of the sitting president! Not a roast of the paying guests.
How gauche, ridiculous, evil, venal, vindictive and juvenile was this? This president is an insane narcissist.
What’s with all the snake jewelry?
Is she the new Cleopatra now?
It was interesting to watch the Democrat hoi polloi eat one of their own.....waiting to see Trump’s next move.
“If it hasnt crossed your TV yet, you should know that dims are 100 percent in support of Trump running.”
That’s right. The commie would beat him in a landslide.
Draw your own conclusions.
