ABC news journalist and Barack Obama fangirl Robin Roberts on Mondays Nightline gushed over a new book of pictures of the Obamas. Co-host Dan Harris deemed the collection of images picture perfect. Talking to former White House photographer Amanda Lucidon, Roberts fawned over a picture of the couple snuggling close to each other: Didn't the President tweet this photo for Valentine's Day?
Harris hyped, And picture perfect. The White House staff photographer getting candid about her years following First Lady Michelle Obama. The story behind this famous image.
In contrast, when Roberts interviewed Laura Bush in 2007, she wondered if the United States should be exporting generosity and not bombs. In November of 2016, ABC (and the other networks) highlighted First Lady-to-be Melania Trump being mocked for her accent during the American Music Awards.
During the Republican convention, the same networks hammered Melania Trump for plagiarism in having similar lines to Michelle Obama. Yet, ABC, CBS and NBC went easy on similar charges against Barack Obama.
Nightline 10/17/17 (10/16/17 in pacific and central) 12:38am ET
DAN HARRIS: And picture perfect. The White House staff photographer getting candid about her years following First Lady Michelle Obama. The story behind this famous image. ...
ABC GRAHPIC: Picture Perfect.
HARRIS: Finally, tonight, the woman behind the lens for some of the most memorable pictures of Michelle Obama. Here's ABCs Robin Roberts.
ROBIN ROBERTS: How about this photograph here with the Girl Scouts?
AMANDA LUCIDON: First ever girl scout camp-out on the south lawn of the White House. Like, how cool.
ROBERTS: Just one day in the life for photographer Amanda Lucidon. Now sharing the stories behind a collection of intimate images of former First Lady Michelle Obama, in her new book Chasing Light.
LUCIDON: As a photographer, you can spend your whole career chasing light. But for me, the deeper meaning was, working at the white house of a transformative time for me.
ROBERTS: From humble beginnings, she worked her way up to White House staff photographer, one of a few women in this role in history.
LUCIDON: I learned from her that you can be anything.
ROBERTS: For four years, Amanda traveled with Mrs. Obama, capturing photos of the first lady.
LUCIDON: She has such a serious role, but she has this lightness about her. She loves to laugh.
ROBERTS: Now, didnt the President tweet this photo for Valentines Day?
LUCIDON: Yeah, for Valentines Day. Which is pretty cool.
ROBERTS: Now, one of Amandas most widely shared.
LUCIDON: I guess that's the importance of having good editors, because I'm such a perfectionist, I guess, I'm like, "The picture is kind of messy." And then my editor is like, "The moment." And I'm like, "Oh, yeah."
ROBERTS: How about when she was with her girls And I believe that's the Great Wall.
LUCIDON: I love that picture because it shows that being a mother is still her most important priority.
ROBERTS: How are you different from the first day?
LUCIDON: I found confidence. The First Lady taught us that the challenges you've encountered in life are actually your strengths.
ROBERTS: For Nightline, Im Robin Roberts in New York.
For Nightline, Im Robin Roberts, just another racist in New York.
I have two nice zoos near me, so I’ll pass.
No pics of Michael and his junk floppin’ around I’m sure.
Forgot /Barf alert.
Yeah, that vomit-worthy exchange on the thread was enough for me not to click on it. The picture perfect’ photos are perfect for Halloween though.
Two men in love with their adopted daughters.
Yes, and I’m sure that reporters afforded Reagan and both Bushes this sort of treatment when they were out of office, lol.
Two men in love with their illegally adopted daughters.

Well, there’s a shock. The lesbian newsreader fawns over LGBT Barack and Michael? Surprising....
I have never forgotten her account of the plane with Loretta Fuddy ... “the plane spiraling down....” - well, about as accurate as anything else they do.
I have two nice zoos near me, so Ill pass.
Were all the photos for National Geographic?
[ LUCIDON: I learned from her that you can be anything. ]
Im gueshed,too. But i got most of it cleaned up.
I have always said that Republicans need to realize that dems do not sell policies, they sell gods. Many people are dysfunctional, with terrible families. They are looking for that perfect dad. They have made BO into the perfect father figure, a combination of Mr. Rogers and all of the best fathers on TV. Not only is he painted as the perfect father, but also as a pure and sinless, syrupy sweet god. You do not doubt your god, no matter what he does, or what is said about him. This is the real egg that needs to be cracked, if we are to fight them effectively.
