    Michelle Obama’s bare arms may have prompted tutting from protocol watchers when she was First Lady, but all that midlife women around the world cared about was how she got those killer biceps. The 55-year-old former First Lady provided a clue on the London leg of her book tour recently, when she checked into Orangetheory Fitness. It’s a high-intensity, science-backed, training class, where you navigate quick changes between running machines, rowers and floor exercises such as squats and weights, while a heart monitor tracks your progress.
  • Nasty Michelle Obama Goes After ‘Divorced Dads’ in Attack on Trump, Gets Hit From ALL Sides

    by Jenn Carter Over the weekend, while on the never-ending tour for her new memoir, Becoming, Michelle Obama launched a bizarre new attack on Donald Trump, but ended up taking on millions of American fathers as well -- earning her some well-deserved scorn from all sides. Obama actually compared the President of the United States to a "divorced dad" whose very presence makes his kids "sick." Needless to say that did not go over well with divorced dads who love their kids, nor many women who admire them. In an "interview" with liberal TV host Stephen Colbert, Michelle tried...

    Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff said Wednesday that her behind-the-scenes communications with Cook County’s top prosecutor about the case involving actor Jussie Smollett were not intended at influencing the outcome of the case. Facing backlash following the decision Tuesday to drop felony charges that Smollett faked a hate crime against himself, Tina Tchen said she simply reached out to Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx to put her in touch with Smollett’s family after Smollett reported that he was a victim of an attack in River North. “I know members of the Smollett family based on prior work together,”...

    As the Chicago Sun-Times reported, “Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff said Wednesday that her behind-the-scenes communications with Cook County’s top prosecutor about the case involving actor Jussie Smollett were not intended at influencing the outcome of the case.” The former chief of staff is Tina Tchen, who said in a statement:  “I know members of the Smollett family based on prior work together. Shortly after Mr. Smollett reported he was attacked, as a family friend, I contacted Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who I also know from prior work together. My sole activity was to put the chief...

    Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel don't get it yet. Former First Lady Michelle Obama, her former Chief of Staff Tina Chen, and Cook County State's Attorney Kim Fox, do get it. It's not about fairness. It's about elites showing their power. When Mayor Emmanuel says that Jussie Smollett got special treatment, that's exactly the message that the Chicago Black Elite want the Police, the Mayor and all of Chicago to get. Because We Can. We are above you. Message Telegraphed. Receipt Returned. You understand what we mean.

    How did hate crime huckster Jussie Smollett get away with it? All crooked roads in Chicago lead back to the Obamas. On Tuesday, as part of a sealed deal, the Illinois state attorney's office dismissed 16 felony charges brought by a grand jury against the Trump-hating actor, who blamed phantom white MAGA supporters for a brutal racist "assault" that left him with a teensy-weensy scratch under his eye. The day before the "attack," Smollett's two bodybuilding friends were caught on surveillance tape buying costumery (red hat, ski masks, bandanas, sunglasses and gloves) that just happened to match Smollett's descriptions of...

    Gays are less than 3% of the population, despite the propaganda. Blacks are about 10% of the population, thanks to Margaret Sanger's "Negro Project" killing 25 million African-American children. (Oops, sorry, that makes me a racist!) Gay Blacks are an even smaller proportion of the population, what-with African-Americans' traditional, social conservatism and strong families -- before the Depression, they had higher proportion of intact biological family with fathers present than the white population, long before LBJ's Great Society decimated Black culture by requiring fatherlessness for welfare. What's to mis-understand by the Chicago Black Elite? You can't have it both ways,...

    Oh boy! Barack Obama’s half brother, Malik, took to Twitter on Thursday to ask if Michelle is actually “Michael”. “Is Michelle Michael?” Obama asked, referring to a conspiracy theory that the former First Lady is actually a man. In 2017, Alex Jones claimed to have proof that Michelle was male. The Independent reported: In a 12-minute video, the Infowars host analyses footage and photos which he believes prove Ms Obama has a penis. “Since the early days of the Obama administration, citizens across the board have studied videos and photos of Michelle Obama and said that she is a man,”...
  • Why Michelle Obama Disliked Working at Sidley—and the Lessons That Still Apply

    Her buffed walnut desk. Her view from the 47th floor overlooking Lake Michigan. Recruiting law students. The money. That’s what Michelle Obama liked about working at Sidley Austin. What she didn’t like: Everything else. I’ve been reading Obama’s autobiography “Becoming,” and have been struck by her dismal depiction of the three years she spent as an associate at the firm from 1988 to 1991. The National Association for Law Placement puts out a periodic report it calls “Keeping the Keepers” about associate retention. Sidley for a brief time employed two of the keeping-est keepers you could imagine: Michelle Robinson and...

    MICHELLE OBAMA has been criticised after mocking US First Lady Melania Trump via a reference to mid-90s comedy film ‘Friday’, with TV host Piers Morgan accusing her of “b*tchy sniping”. Mrs Obama made the controversial remark during an appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show. She also claimed she felt awkward when Mrs Trump presented her with a Tiffany gift box. Mr Morgan wrote in The Daily Mail: “Melania Trump must have winced with anger and humiliation. “Michelle inexplicably decided to plunge the b**chy knife firmly into the back of her successor as First Lady. “How sad to see Michelle...

    Michelle Obama’s footwear is causing a fashion frenzy, after the former first lady sported sparkling $4,000 designer boots. The “Becoming” author stepped out in the eye-catching pair of Balenciaga boots on Wednesday at a Brooklyn stop on her nationwide book tour. Former “Sex and the City” star and fashion designer Sarah Jessica Parker served as the celebrity guest moderator for the chat about Obama’s best-selling memoir. The gold, thigh-high boots retail for $3,800, and several sizes were sold out or low in stock on at least one site selling them after Obama's appearance. Multiple fashion gurus and first lady watchers...

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama offered a candid assessment of the reality of trying to balance a marriage and a career and the idea of ‘leaning in.'” “Marriage still ain’t equal, y’all. It ain’t equal. I tell women that whole ‘you can have it all’—mmm, nope, not at the same time,” Mrs. Obama said Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday night. “That’s a lie. And it’s not always enough to lean in, because that shit doesn’t work all the time.”

    Former first lady Michelle Obama wrote that she was unable to put on a happy face and smile during President Donald Trump's inauguration in her new book, according to ABC News. "Someone from Barack's administration might have said that the optics there were bad, that what the public saw didn't reflect the President's reality or ideals, but in this case, maybe it did," Obama said in audio of the book. "Realizing it, I made my own optic adjustment. I stopped even trying to smile." In its interview with Obama, ABC News further quoted from her book, where the former first...
