Fittest First Lady: Michelle Obama drops to the floor in an impressive push-up challenge
(London) Daily Mail ^ | February 3, 2012

Completed 25 push-ups on Ellen DeGeneres show beating the TV host

Michelle Obama has been touring California promoting her health agenda, so when she was challenged to a push-up contest on a TV show, she quickly dropped to the floor to prove she practiced what she preached.

The challenge began when daytime TV host Ellen DeGeneres asked the U.S First Lady on her show: 'How many push-ups can you do? Because I like to do a push-up.'

'I don't know I can do some - can you? I know you've got these back issues,' Mrs Obama teased.

To which the TV host stood up and took off her jacket, and a smiling Mrs Obama, who has completed push-ups with Archbishop Desmond Tutu stood up ready to take on the challenge.

During the show, Mrs Obama also revealed some bedroom secrets regarding husband Barack.

He doesn't pick up his socks.

'He thinks he's neat but he has people who help him. I'm like it's not you that's neat. It's the people who pick up your socks. Those are the neat people,' she told DeGeneres.

She also joined host the TV host in a boogie for the benefit of the audience.

That was why she lost - it took extra effort every time her face got close to the carpet.

She’s a muzzie, her face gets close to the carpet five times a day during prayer....

Somebody please tell me what a racist gesture is.

The Holy Cow pointed the index fingers on both hands when she danced the boogie!

Why just the other day, Jan Brewer pointed at the Wee Wee on the tarmac at Sky Harbor Airport and Rev. Jesse and Rev. Al went off like a roman candle. That was the ultimate sign of disrespect.

So, I figured that in the interest of racial equality, the same standards should be applied to all.

Ellen was going down much farther than Michelle and obvious let her win.

However, she’s a fit lady and, if I didn’t despise her, that would have been a cute segment.

But since I do, I found it disgusting.

I’m now going to see how many pushups I can do.

Back later if I don’t faint.

Okay, I did three. But it took me a while to get back up.
