    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...

    Michelle Obama kicked off her family's final Christmas season at the White House on Friday by receiving a 19-foot Balsam-Veitch fir from Wisconsin as the official White House Christmas tree. Joined by two young nephews instead of her teenage daughters, the first lady said she's ready and excited for the holiday. . . . Mrs. Obama explained that the appearance by her nephews "is what happens when you get teenagers," referring to 18-year-old Malia and 15-year-old Sasha, the daughters who in past years have joined her for the tradition of receiving the Christmas tree on the morning after Thanksgiving. "One's...

    At the Hay-Adams this fall, members of Washington’s diplomatic community gathered inside the historic hotel’s glass-walled loft, with its postcard views of the White House, for a conversation about fashion. About clothes and their place on the world stage. The program, hosted by the State Department and Elle magazine, included a panel discussion, in which I was invited to participate, that featured designer Derek Lam. When the conversation came around to first lady Michelle Obama — because how could it not? — Lam dropped his head in a mournful manner and lamented: Her departure from the East Wing signaled the...

    What would Thanksgiving Day be without more gushing over the Obamas? The Washington Post on Thursday declared That Michelle Obama’s “departure from the East Wing signaled the end of a singular era for American fashion.” The piece by Robin Givhan contrasts with the writer’s bashing of the looks of conservative women such as Carly Fiorina, who she mocked as a “style bully.” Regarding Mrs. Obama, Givhan fawned, “She helped young people see that fashion is more than catwalk extravaganzas and ‘Project Runway.’"

She will always be around. LOL. Everything is fine. I don't even know why I clicked on this article. Alright, back to the bunker. Step Two: Throw Shade At who? Everyone.

    Recalling Michelle Obama’s Long-Forgotten ‘Strikingly Ungracious’ by Jim Geraghty November 21, 2016. While I was away, the Washington Post ran a column about the “rude, racist, sexist or plain ridiculous attacks” against Michelle Obama, and pointed to me calling her “strikingly ungracious.” No context to when and where and why I wrote that, and the article’s link to my piece from February 2008 conveniently doesn’t work. My comment was in response to her declaring during her husband’s campaign that “for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.” As an NR reader observed at...

    Michelle Obama says she wants nothing to do with politics now, but oddsmakers still say she’s got the best chance of any Democrat of winning the White House in four years. Bovada, an online gambling site, says the odds of Mrs. Obama winning are 12-to-1. The next-best Democrats, Sen. Tim Kaine and Elizabeth Warren, get odds of 14-to-1. By contrast three Republicans have higher odds: President-elect Donald Trump is a 2-to-1 bet to repeat, while Vice President-elect Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan are each given 10-to-1 odds.

After Donald Trump won the US presidential election, Pamela Ramsey Taylor, from the Clay Development Corporation, posted: "It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady in the White House. I'm tired of seeing an Ape in heels." Clay's mayor, Beverly Whaling, responded: "Just made my day Pam." The post, which was initially reported by WSAZ-TV, was shared hundreds of times before it was deleted.

    On Thursday, Mr. Obama put on his choirboy face for the cameras. In a televised meeting at the White House with President-Elect Donald Trump, Obama engaged in his usual kabuki theatrics, fooling no one. We have become so accustomed to Obama's passive-aggressive antics that it wasn't even surprising that he and Michelle skipped the traditional photo op featuring the outgoing and incoming first couples together. The pair proved once again they are small, petty people. It is vile how the Obamas had no problem posing with the founders of a Soros-funded violent terrorist group called Black Lives Matter, whose members...

    President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama cancelled a photo op with President-Elect Donald Trump and future First Lady Melania Trump at the White House on Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported. The Obamas became strong campaigners for Hillary Clinton during the presidential race and held rallies for her around the country. In 2008, after President Obama won his first election to the presidency, President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush welcomed the Obamas to the White House in what has become a tradition, and took a picture of the two couples.

    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...

    Much has been made of the similarity between the eloquent speech given last night by Melania Trump and the one given by Michelle Obama in 2008. Certainly there are similarities but after a while it does become difficult to express the same sentiments in different and attractive prose. Naturally, the media had its head so far up its ass in 2008 that it could not bring itself to visit the same condemnation on Barack Obama when he plagiarized Deval Patrick. The White House responded with the lame explanation that obama did not copy Patrick, he was "inspired" by Patrick. https://youtu.be/J60qDBRI6PsObama...

    No, there is nothing Mrs. Trump needs to borrow from the overbearing Madam Frump. Thwack! The sound of #NeverTrump ‘Constitooshinal’ Conservatives pulling their thumbs out of their O-shaped mouths when their roll call sabotage was ignored at the Republican National Convention. Most knew that the minute when Donald J. Trump was officially nominated, in the face of all those who said it could never happen, that the kids would storm out of the nursery leaving Teddy behind to go dirt-digging.
  • Melania Trump’s Big Difference from Michelle Obama: American Pride

    Whether or not Melania Trump cribbed a passage from a Michelle Obama speech, there is one crucial sentiment Donald Trump’s Slovenian born wife certainly didn’t copy from Obama’s — the inherent pride of being an American citizen. As the media pours over one passage in Melania Trump’s Republican National Convention speech that is similar to Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech at the Democratic National Convention, they overlook a key sentence that was undeniably written by Mrs. Trump and reveals all the difference in the world between these two women and their husbands.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number one. I want to take you back to me on this program May 5. May 5th on this program, I warned everybody of exactly what's happening today. When Hillary Clinton is threatened by a female, then the media and her allies hop to. They get into gear and do whatever they can to take out the opposing female. RUSH ARCHIVE: My experience with wives of conservatives and wives of Republicans -- and the Democrat Party and the media -- is that usually (there are exceptions, but usually) the media and the Democrats...

The ever-chic Letizia, 43, stunned in a sleeveless scarlet dress from Nina Ricci that showcased her toned arms, adding a pair of pointed nude courts and turquoise earrings.
