  • Michelle Obama: I Won't Slow Down in 'Final Stretch as First Lady'

    Michelle Obama pledges not to slow down, despite the fact her second and final term as first lady is winding down. She made the comments in an interview with an Italian publication touting her Let's Move health initiative. The publication asked, "You just celebrated the fifth anniversary of your initiative “Let’s Move!” What are the best results you have achieved and the next goals?" "Through Let’s Move! we have started a new conversation about how we eat and live in the U.S., and the results we’ve seen are beyond anything we could ever have imagined. 1.6 million kids are now...

    Listen up, y'all. It's been what - like three weeks? - since Michelle Obama has taken a trip on the taxpayer dime. So it's TIME. And this time, she's going to to the U.K. and Italy . Because I've heard those two places are KILLER in the summertime. Especially when other people are paying for them. First up, she's going to London, then Milan, then Vincenza, and she's going to fit in some First Lady stuff in between seeing the sights, of course, including "planning events to support healthier families and communities as part of her 'Let's Move' agenda."...

    Michelle Robinson Obama didn’t have it too bad growing up. And her affirmative action catapult ride to Princeton and Harvard, to prestigious jobs, and to the pinnacle of vast riches and power has been fabulously smooth sailing — that is, compared to the often grim life struggles of the unsung multitudes of downtrodden, creepy-ass crackers across this land (despite all that white privilege everywhere, eh). Still, something’s wrong at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. If anyone should be over-brimming with gratitude for assorted blessings afforded to them by our society’s institutions and people,she should. So what’s with her endless racial resentment and...

    First lady Michelle Obama may know the names of the world’s most famous clothes designers, and she may even know how to dance the Uptown Funk, but judging from her commencement speech to the graduates of a historically black university in Alabama, America’s race-baiting FLOTUS knows nothing about great American civil rights leader, accomplished scholar, and founder of Tuskegee University, the late Booker T. Washington. Michelle Obama’s remarks at the commencement sounded more like she was paying homage to W.E.B. DuBois, who believed in civil rights via agitation and political activism, than DuBois’ adversary, ex-slave Booker Taliaferro Washington, who wrote...

Obama, speaking to graduates at Tuskegee University in Alabama, described insensitive media questions and derogatory remarks from political pundits that she said have kept her up at night. “You might remember the on-stage celebratory fist bump between me and my husband after a primary win that was referred to as a ‘terrorist fist jab,’ ” she said.

    First lady Michelle Obama used a speech Monday that was supposed to be celebrating the opening of a new museum to instead dig deeper the racial divide that’s been growing ever wider during her husband’s presidency. “Museums and concert halls,” she said, just don’t welcome non-white visitors – especially children – the way they welcome whites. Speaking at the new Whitney museum in New York City’s meat packing district last week, Obama said she grew up thinking that museums were not places “for someone who looks like me.”

A concerned mother took a photo of her child's lunch consisting of a dull looking fish fillet, a whole wheat bun, and corn and then posted it to social media this week. Virginia’s Portsmouth Public Schools say that their lunches are in compliance with Michelle Obama's federal lunch rules. Scroll down for video

But it's a good bet that "healthy" didn't exactly spring to mind. Yet it turns out that those fiery Cheetos beloved by school children (some kids even made an epic rap paean to Hot Cheetos a few years ago) actually qualify as a "Smart Snack" under revised federal nutrition guidelines for schools. The Obama administration rolled out the new guidelines last year in a bid to limit the amount of junk food kids...

Appearing for a segment on Jeopardy, the million-dollar question has now become: what happened to Michelle’s hair? Surrounded by a harvest brimming with God’s bounty and standing in front of a very large soup pot, the FLOTUS sported a hairdo that gave the optical illusion of baldheadedness. Looking like a female rendition of her husband’s hairdo in between dye jobs, Michelle seemed totally unaware of people not...

Citing persistent high levels of overweight and obesity, the report proposed "strategies across multiple settings, including health care, communities, schools, work sites, and families." First Lady Michelle Obama hailed the report as "the guiding light toward a healthier and happier America. The notion that individuals can be left on their own to choose what they eat and how much to exercise has proven to be a failure.

The First Lady, 51, was snapped alongside her husband Barack Obama in Riyadh, paying respects to King Salman bin Abdulaziz, the successor of the late King Abdullah, during what was a quick stop in the country for the funeral. As King Salman shook hands with the President, the First Lady was photographed frowning at the royal. At times, she looked rather uncomfortable and annoyed, even, as she and her...

The First Lady bowed and beamed as she boarded Air Force One in New Dehli on Tuesday, but by the time she landed in Saudi Arabia a few hours later, she had traded her floral dress for a more conservative long-sleeved jacket and slacks - as well as a new scorned expression.

The archivists for the Clinton Library sent notice that they were preparing to release a “huge trove or records” (as Politico put it) relating to Hillary Clinton’s policy work during her time as First Lady in Bill Clinton’s White House. The descriptions here beggar the imagination and probably overshadow the fact that they will just coincidentally be coming out just when Hillary’s expected POTUS run is kicking into high gear.

    Michelle Obama entered the White House as a chimera. To some, she was emblematic of fully realized African American womanhood and an incomparable fashion icon. To others, she was the voice of racial grievance, the nanny state and Seventh Avenue vanity. She has proved herself to be neither vengeful nor the patron saint of activist feminism. Yet misperceptions linger. So as she celebrates her 50th birthday, here are a few facts in the face of persistent fictions. 1. Michelle Obama is the most fashion-friendly first lady. [Snip] 2. She is a food tyrant of Bloombergian intolerance. [Snip] 3. Her legacy...

    Michelle Obama had the gall to tell supporters in New York City this week,“We don’t believe in handouts. We don’t think anyone should get a free ride,”What? That’s ALL they believe in is handouts and redistribution: ** Barack Obama has created two new food stamp recipients for every job created.** number of Americans on disability now exceeds the number of people in New York City.** Under Obamacare the Congressional Budget Office projects that nine million Americans would be added to Medicaid’s rolls in 2014.** 43% of Americans don’t pay income tax.** Under Obama the US government now redistributes two trillion...

    ...[President] Washington once said that government is “a troublesome servant and a fearful master.” Government has long ceased being a troublesome servant and has become our fearful master instead. Today the servants of the people have more servants of their own than many kings and queens. The government shutdown has forced Obama to make do with only a quarter of his 1,701 person staff. That would leave 436 “vital” employees. The 90 people who look after his living quarters would be slashed to 15 to “provide minimum maintenance and support”. Buckingham Palace, which is twelve times the size of the...
  • Michelle Obama Can’t Tweet after Government Shutdown of her 16 Assistants

    The Government Shutdown isn’t just hard for ordinary people. It’s also tough for the folks on top. A contingency plan has been developed to allow Obama to go on functioning with only 1/4 of his 1,701 person staff. And the effect is being felt even by Michelle Obama’s Twitter account. Sure Michelle Obama could take time out from her busy schedule to Tweet once every two days (that’s her average) but due to the Government Shutdown somehow impacting some of her 16 assistants, her Twitter account will now be “limited”. Maybe now she’ll only post once every four days. The...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Michelle Obama, first lady of the United States -- not content with botching the school lunch menu, not content with urging everybody to drink water so that they increase their exercise and energy level (which is a bogus thing) -- Michelle Obama "now wants food makers and entertainment companies to spend less time advertising sweet and salty foods to kids and more time promoting healthier options." Now, let me just say something. This is something that may not seem like a big deal to a lot of people. "Oh, the first lady just wants to help." Let...

    Just how bad is America’s underemployment crisis, in which college grads toil in dead-end jobs that don’t even require higher education, much less advanced degrees? Consider this: The country’s leading health-and-nutrition buttinsky has not just one but two Ivy League diplomas and earned over a quarter-of-a-million dollars back in 2006, before the Great Recession destroyed the hopes and dreams of entire generations, including those not yet born. Now she makes no salary at all and provides diet-and-exercise information that doesn’t even require a GED. I speak of course of First Lady Michelle Obama, whose bold new initiative aims to get...

    First came the bangs. Then a comedy sketch on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Next, her unexpected presentation of the Oscar for Best Picture. Now, in April, she graces the cover of Vogue magazine, for the second time. Do we need any more confirmation of Michelle Obama’s apotheosis? Some of the intense interest in the first lady may be owing to the fact that she is now inviting it. The second term of her husband’s presidency gives her increased freedom to be herself, notes Jennifer Lawless, director of the Women & Politics Institute at American University in Washington, D.C....

    CNN anchor Erin Burnett during an interview with former first lady Laura Bush that aired Monday posed a bit of a head-scratcher: Should we “accept” anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism “when we want to make change” in the Middle East? See for yourself [courtesy NewsBusters]: “An Egyptian woman, her name’s Samir Ibrahim, and she’s done a lot of things, courageous things. She’s also been criticized for sending tweets that are anti-Semitic, anti-American,” Burnnett said during a segment on the George W. Bush Institute’s Women’s Initiative Fellowship Program. “Does the U.S. need to accept that when we want to make change? You have...

    WASHINGTON – At last night’s White House state dinner honoring former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry, Vice President Biden managed to ignite a bit of a firestorm when he addressed the honoree and distinguished guests. After thanking Mayor Barry for his public service and congratulating him on his many accomplishments, the vice president strayed off-script and embarked on a bewildering oration that left some of the dinner guests uneasy and all of the guests confused. Mr. Biden’s discourse began to meander wildly when his subject matter shifted from Marion Barry to Mrs. Obama’s new haircut. “I’ve always been a big fan...

    OPINION February 27, 2013, 7:29 p.m. ET Michelle Obama: The Business Case for Healthier Food Options In recent years, they have generated more than 70% of the growth in sales for packaged-goods companies. By MICHELLE OBAMA For years, America's childhood obesity crisis was viewed as an insurmountable problem, one that was too complicated and too entrenched to ever really solve. According to the conventional wisdom, healthy food simply didn't sell—the demand wasn't there and higher profits were found elsewhere—so it just wasn't worth the investment. But thanks to businesses across the country, today we are proving the conventional wisdom wrong....
