  • Michelle Obama says men are 'entitled,' 'self-righteous' because women protect them too much

    Michelle Obama says men are 'entitled,' 'self-righteous' because women protect them too much Fox News Former first lady Michelle Obama explained Wednesday at a summit in Chicago that she believes men are “entitled,” and that women protect them too much. Speaking at the first Obama Foundation international summit, Obama -- one of the event’s headliners -- said that men are essentially babied and protected by women, while women are raised to be “strong.” “It’s like the problem in the world today is we love our boys, and we raise our girls,” Obama said. “We raise them to be strong, and...

    Michelle Obama has a message for the men of the world: Do better, try harder and most importantly, communicate more. On Wednesday, the former first lady sat down with poet Elizabeth Alexander on the second day of the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago, the first of an annual event. The topic turned to gender, and Obama had some choice words: She noted that women tend to communicate, reflect and support each other better than men—something she feels needs to change. "Y'all should get you some friends," she laughed...

    Melania Trump is embracing a more active and public schedule as first lady – but she still runs one of the leanest East Wing operations in recent history. According to a Fox News analysis of White House personnel reports, Melania Trump has significantly reduced the number of aides on the first lady's office payroll in comparison to her predecessor, Michelle Obama. During then-President Barack Obama’s first year in office, 16 people were listed working for Michelle Obama, earning a combined $1.24 million a year. This year, just four people were listed working for Melania Trump as of June. Their salaries...
  • Michelle Obama Says Republicans Are 'All Men, All White'

    Michelle Obama ignored people like Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) when she said that Republican members of Congress are "all men, all white." And she greatly minimized them, and all the other minority and/or female members of the GOP caucus, when she said, "On the other side... some women, some people of color." But she didn't even stop there; the former first lady implied that this dynamic of right-wingers being only white men was a paradigm throughout the U.S. and throughout many industries.

    Former first lady Michelle Obama got the VIP treatment at a Bruno Mars concert Friday. Obama was spotted attending Mars’ concert at the Capitol One Arena in Washington, D.C. Friday night, according to posts on Mars’ Instagram. Obama posed with the singer in two posts on his Instagram.

Mrs. Obama came to the concert and blessed us with her presence," Mars captioned one of the posts.

As far as I’m concerned, any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice.”

    Mchelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump's administration with her husband and former President Obama's administration. The former first lady said at a tech conference in Utah that her husband's presidency was built on hope, while Trump's is being led fear, according to The Salt Lake Tribune. “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump's "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they...

    Conspiracy theorist and founder of media outlet InfoWars Alex Jones came under fire Thursday night after he shared a video that claims Michelle Obama is a man. The video was posted to Jones' website, InfoWars, after the 43-year-old claimed during his podcast that it provided "proof" that Obama was a man. Jones pointed to photos of the former first lady wearing pants or skirts that crease, saying they show a "large bulge inside her pants," and claimed that late comedian Joan Rivers' 2014 comment calling Obama a "tranny" is proof his theory is right. "Since the early days of the...

David Binkle, a chef who served as the director of food services for Los Angeles Unified School District until he was fired in 2015, was charged last week with multiple counts of embezzlement, misappropriation of public funds, conflict of interest, forgery, and perjury.

    It’s been nearly 200 days since the Obamas moved out of the White House. In that time, Barack Obama may have become a style star, but Michelle Obama has simply remained one. The former First Lady is as supportive of a wide range of up-and-coming designers as she was in her capacity as FLOTUS. Maybe—maybe—we’re able to detect a slight edge in her new looks. There’s the Cushnie et Ochs dress that she wore to the ESPYs, which is spot-on trend-wise, all black and asymmetrical and falling just below the knee. Plus, she’s managed to set her shoulders free without...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama was a breath of fresh air as usual while making a public appearance in Colorado since leaving the White House for a live armchair conversation with The Women’s Foundation of Colorado President Lauren Casteel. But even as poised and graceful as always, Obama touched on some tough topics, speaking out frankly about the hurt she felt from the racist attacks she received while in the White House. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said when Casteel asked her about the trials of being the first black...

    Last night, Michelle Obama was the honored guest of the annual ESPY awards. Naturally, the media collective was head over heels with praise and admiration. At the Sacramento Bee, Brian Blomster had what can only be described as a literary orgasm. Obama, he said, "wowed attendees" with a "black Cushnie et Ochs dress that was all curves and slashes." According to Blomster's reporting, Obama "gave the evening a markedly high-fashion feel." In tune, USA Today remarked, "Civilian life looks good on Michelle Obama. If Barack Obama is America's ex-boyfriend, the former first lady is this country's one that got away."...

    Melania Trump is far more popular than her husband, but she isn't the fairest, ahem, most well-liked, modern first lady of them all. Less than a month after the wife of President Donald Trump finally moved into the White House to join her spouse, the first lady's approval ratings have climbed by 14 points to 51 percent, a Fox News poll published Friday found. More Americans are also less inclined to dislike Melania Trump than there were before her husband became president, the poll found. About 28 percent of voters don't view her favorably, while 35 percent viewed her unfavorably...

    If you've ever had questions about what it's like working for Michelle Obama, one woman has all answers. That woman is Melissa Winters, Obama's long-time aide and current chief of staff. In an account to Cosmopolitan, Winters described her journey alongside the former first lady, which began during the 2008 presidential campaign.(snip) When Obama was in a bad mood, there was a simple solution: “Just put her in a room with children. She loves kids.” Of course, there was one bad mood that didn't seem to have an easy fix, and that was the night that Donald Trump got elected....
