    Ready for Michelle? Political Committees Form In Support of Political Run by First Lady By JORDYN PHELPS Dec 3, 2016, While First Lady Michelle Obama and the president have repeatedly shot down the notion that the first lady would ever consider running for political office -- let alone the presidency -- that hasn't stopped political committees from filing with the Federal Elections Commission to support a potential candidacy. One of the groups, Ready for Michelle PAC, filed with the elections commission on Oct. 31 and says on its website that its goal is to "get the ball rolling by identifying...

    President Obama says both he and first lady Michelle Obama will be “very active” in working with people at the grass-roots level to support progressive causes once he leaves office. But despite her popularity and natural public speaking ability, Michelle isn’t interested in a career in politics. “Michelle will never run for office,” the president told Rolling Stone in an interview conducted the day after the election. “She is as talented a person as I know. You can see the incredible resonance she has with the American people. But I joke that she’s too sensible to want to be in...

The First Lady kicked off the holiday season in style with an incredibly chic bell-sleeved black jacket, along with skinny trousers and high-heeled boots as the 19-foot Douglas Fir was delivered to the White House from Pennsylvania. Michelle called her nephews her 'replacement kids' and said at least one of her teenage daughters was asleep during the annual festivities. The president, on the...

    On Tuesday night, at her final state dinner as first lady, Michelle Obama solidified her legacy as perhaps the most adept and successful practitioner of the art of political dressing that any administration has seen. Her choice of an Atelier Versace gown for the Italy state dinner was not only a nice bit of sartorial diplomacy — Versace being an Italian success story, a company often touted as a candidate for a public offering — but, coming less than a week after her magnetic speech in New Hampshire on women and respect, it went far beyond being simply an ambassadorial...

    First lady Michelle Obama is making sure that whoever inhabits the White House next doesn’t rip out her iconic vegetable garden — at least not without a big fuss. Obama Wednesday afternoon unveiled a much bigger version of the garden that uses cement, stone and steel to make it a more permanent fixture on the South Lawn. The updates are seen not just as preserving Obama’s garden — recognized globally as a symbol of local food — but also as a way to dissuade, say, a President Donald Trump from scrapping it the way Ronald Reagan tore out Jimmy...

At the same time black mobs were beating up innocent white people in Charlotte, North Carolina, showing no mercy, Mrs. Obama, appearing on Colbert's late night show, went after Melania Trump. "No sympathy"? A more secure first lady would have said, "Yes, I have sympathy for the spouse of a presidential candidate. It's a grueling experience."

Now that they are in the White House, I don't think that attitude has changed one bit.

    President Barack Obama has enthusiastically endorsed Hillary Clinton, but his wife Michelle Obama remains silent since the former first lady claimed the presidential candidacy for the Democratic party. Surprisingly, Michelle Obama made no mention of Clinton’s historic moment for women during the entire White House United State of Women conference, produced by Obama’s senior advisor Valerie Jarrett. The First Lady participated an interview with Oprah Winfrey during the conference which focused heavily on the power of women — but Hillary Clinton was not discussed by Winfrey or Obama.

    First Lady Michelle Obama explains how she deals with “the haters” as she prepares to leave the White House with her husband in January. During an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the First Lady explained that she learned how to turn off social media and traditional media criticism of her family. “You can’t be reading all that stuff. I mean, that’s like letting somebody just walk up and slap you, you know?” she said. “You would never just sit there and go, slap me in the face and I’m good with it.”

    A United States Marine didn’t take too kindly to First Lady Michelle Obama stoking the fires of racial tensions while giving a speech at Tuskegee University. During the speech, Mrs. Obama used the platform to praise the Tuskegee airmen of World War II, something all Americans can agree with. Then the speech took a very different direction, with the First Lady telling the student they should prepare to an onslaught of racism that will come their way, regardless of their success.

    In a swipe at Republicans in general and Donald Trump in particular, first lady Michelle Obama urged native American high school graduates Thursday to reject leaders who advocate “that we should be selfish.” “More than ever before, our world needs you,” Mrs. Obama told students at the Santa Fe Indian School in New Mexico. “And you don’t need your first lady to tell you that. All you have to do is tune into the news and you’ll see that right now, some of the loudest voices in our national conversation are saying things that go against every single one of...

    First lady Michelle Obama will unveil Friday the country's first update to nutrition labels in more than two decades — a move that helps cement her campaign to encourage Americans to eat healthier. The new Nutrition Facts labels, which will take effect in two years and appear on billions of food packages, for the first time require food companies to list how much sugar they add to their products and suggest a limit for how much added sugar people should consume — two changes vehemently opposed by many food companies. The impact of the rule is difficult to overstate —...

    (CNSNews.com) – At a summit by the Aspen Institute’s Project Play, first lady Michelle Obama said Tuesday that some U.S. communities are “play deserts,” because they don’t have sufficient opportunities for kids to participate in sports and other outdoor activities, compared to wealthy communities. “So many communities are becoming play deserts, but in wealthy communities, there is a wealth of resources. You can be in field hockey, or you can learn how to swim. There are aquatic centers and -- I’ve seen the difference. The disparities are amazing to me,” she said. As CNSNews.com previously reported, the Obama administration coined...
