    First Lady Melania Trump is embracing the spirit of bipartisanship for Tuesday’s State Dinner with French President Emmanuel Macron and French First Lady Brigette Macron — at least, when it comes to the menu and decor. The Office of the First Lady released details about the Trump administration’s first state dinner on Monday, revealing a menu that features greens from the White House kitchen garden, which was planted by Michelle Obama in 2009, and a china service that will include pieces from Bush 43 and Clinton’s services. The Clinton china services coordinates with the dinner’s gold and white color scheme...

    The former first lady put to rest a rumored White House bid and discussed diversity in higher education at the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston. It’s simple, really: Michelle Obama does not want to be president, and so she is not running for president. “I have never had the passion for politics,” Obama said. “I just happened to be married to somebody who has the passion for politics, and he drug me kicking and screaming into this arena. Just because I gave a good speech, and I’m smart and intelligent, doesn’t mean that I should be the next president.”

    Former first lady Michelle Obama likened her husband's presidency to having "the good parent" at home at a women's leadership conference on Thursday. At the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston, Obama appeared to take shots at President Trump's administration in remarks first reported by local TV station WBZ. The Obama administration “was like having the ‘good parent’ at home," the former first lady said. "The responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time." “And now we have the other parent,” Obama added. “We thought it’d feel fun — maybe it feels...

    Michelle Obama trumped Melania Trump in winning over the hearts of the American people. Michelle Obama placed second in Gallup's poll of the most admired women in the US, while Melania Trump earned the No. 8 spot. Trump has received backlash for wearing expensive outfits, which can make her seem out of touch with Americans. Obama, meanwhile, used her fashion choices to represent social and political initiatives. On Wednesday, Obama earned the No. 2 spot on Gallup's poll of Americans on the woman living anywhere in the world they admire most. The No. 1 spot went to Hillary Clinton. Obama...

    The Trump administration is ending yet another of Michelle Obama’s hated, overly strict school lunch rules by bringing chocolate milk back to school lunch menus. The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Thursday announced a new rule set to take effect on July 1 after the period of public comment. The new rule relaxes sodium limits and Obama’s whole-grain requirements. The rule will also allow milk with one percent fat back on the menu, ABC News reported. “Schools need flexibility in menu planning so they can serve nutritious and appealing meals,” Perdue said this week. “Schools want to offer food that...

    That’s the question about Michelle Obama’s intentions regarding a possible run for president in 2020. While she has consistently denied any interest in running, how plausible does that really sound? If the Democratic Party needed her and pleaded with her to run, does anyone really doubt she would? Here, then, are 12 reasons she will. She outpolls all other Democrats:According to a Zogby poll last month, she leads the pack of potential Democratic candidates, despite her insistence that she would “never run.” The only others even close are Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders – two very old white men. That’s...

    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 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.

    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...
