    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...

She said this by describing life after taking up residence in the White House.

She said one of her jobs in the White House was to teach her daughters “to ignore those who question their father’s citizenship or faith.” She was referencing the challenges to her husband’s constitutional qualification for office as a “natural born citizen.” Dozens of lawsuits were filed over that issue before and after Obama’s...

    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.

    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.

    It’s been more than six years since Michelle Obama kicked off her “Let’s Move!” initiative to fight against childhood obesity, and children are as overweight as ever before. That’s according to a new study published Tuesday in the journal Obesity. A team led by Duke University scientist Asheley Skinner studied data from the CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and found that the percentage of overweight and obese children between 2 and 19 years old has increased across the board since 1999. That comes as bad news for the Obama administration, which has sought to force children to...

    US President Barack Obama will be moving out of the White House in 2017, but he will not be moving far. Mr Obama said on Thursday the family would stay in Washington while his 14-year-old daughter, Sasha, finishes her education at the elite academy, Sidwell Friends.
