    Michelle Obama is home from her #letgirlslearn swing through Asia and back to hawking fruits and veggies from the stainless steel area deep within the hallowed halls of the White House kitchen. Appearing for a segment on Jeopardy, the million-dollar question has now become: what happened to Michelle’s hair? Surrounded by a harvest brimming with God’s bounty and standing in front of a very large soup pot, the FLOTUS sported a hairdo that gave the optical illusion of baldheadedness. Looking like a female rendition of her husband’s hairdo in between dye jobs, Michelle seemed totally unaware of people not...

    Just a quick update, as you organize to file your income taxes, on the Obama family's lavish travel expenses that your money is underwriting. Financing might be a better word. Barack and Michelle Obama have traveled more than any other first couple -- doing Spain, Africa, China, South America, among other distant spots. Often they're accompanied by friends and Michelle Obama's Mom, Marian Robinson, who's been living in the White House at taxpayer expense since her son-in-law's inauguration. And in some cases, Mrs. Robinson's friends tag along.

    A new report says that the federal government plans to keep track of how healthy children are by weighing and measuring them in daycare. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will weigh and check the height of roughly 3,000 children as part of a study mandated by First Lady Michelle Obamas Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. According to a report by Free Beacon, the USDA published a notice in the Federal Register on Friday proposing data collection on what meals are served in professional and home daycare facilities and how much physical activity children perform.

    Federally-mandated changes to school lunches backed by first lady Michelle Obama helped cause an unprecedented drop in the number of students eating lunch, according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO). The GAO cited two factors stemming from the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, which caused a decrease in the number of children eating school lunch each day: school childrens issues with palatability and federally-mandated increases in the price of school lunches.

    A middle school teacher in Louisiana received one of the most disgusting-looking lunches imaginable and posted a picture of it online yesterday. The post, titled "I'm a teacher. My school cafeteria served this today," said that the meal below was supposed to be "ham:" Unsurprisingly, the teacher decided not to eat her "meal" and threw the meat away after taking the picture. She also plans on sending the picture to her school's food director "who is supposed to be enforcing federal regulations."

    The White House said Monday that taxpayers paid for first lady Michelle Obama and President Obama to fly on separate planes to Los Angeles on the same day last week because they were traveling to different airports on slightly different schedules. They flew into different airports, said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. Its also my understanding that the first lady actually left to get back to Washington, D.C., before the president even arrived in California. Mr. Obama flew to Los Angeles International airport last Thursday on Air Force One, arriving around 4 p.m. local time for an appearance on

Youre going to need a No. 2 pencil and scrap paper for this. Estimates are that Air Force One costs about $206,000 per hour to operate.

    Michelle Obama is going Hollywood with her Lets Move health and fitness campaign. While President Obama was occupied Thursday reading mean tweets about himself on ABCs Jimmy Kimmel Live, the First Lady was busy taping Fridays episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Before the spot deteriorated into a choreographed dance routine, Obama informed Ellen she was on set to promote more healthy living and issued a social media challenge. Were calling it GimmeFive and were using the hashtag #GimmeFive on social media, Michelle said of the cause, which apparently includes dancing to coincide with regulated lunches.

    Her arm thrust out and pouting like a rapper, this is the moment that Michelle Obama showed off her dance moves during a toe-curling appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Challenged to show off her dance moves by Ms Degeneres, Mrs Obama gamely obliged and went on to pull shapes that wouldn't have shamed Rita Ora. Unfortunately for daughters Sasha and Malia, the appearance on Ellen, which airs on the 16th March, isn't the end of the 51-year-old's dancing ambitions.

Talk about an epiphany, I was estatic that he made this suggestion and for a moment I imagined the possibility.

Since we can be sure Michelle is supportative of her husbands accomplishments and goals, we can also feel confident she would...

    Was he serious? Some of his fellow panelists chuckled, but it wasn't obvious that conservative commentator Ben Domenech was kidding when on today's Up With Steve Kornacki he said that "the only person I think who could beat Hillary Clinton is Michelle Obama." Domenech's comment came during a segment on the subject of who might jump into the race should Hillary decide not to run. The mere fact that there was such a segment suggests that the controversy over Hillary's email might not be the much ado "about nothing" that some claim. View the video here.

His main complaint was about the new wheat tortillas and pizza crust. His taco shell and pizza just weren't as tasty anymore. So concerned about these changes, he voiced his displeasure to his second grade teacher, Margaret Cerami, who suggested he learn more about the lunch changes, and perhaps, write a letter to the person responsible for the changes, First Lady Michelle Obama. What began as an expression of displeasure turned into a...

At the School Nutrition Associations (SNA) 2015 Legislative Action Conference at the JW Marriott Monday, Hoeven announced the Healthy School Meals Flexibility Act to give schools more flexibility in complying with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulations when it comes to whole grains and sodium levels. The bill would allow schools to revert back to 2012 standards, which require at least half of all grains served in school breakfast and school lunch to be whole grain rich. The standard now is for 100 percent...

I wonder if she’ll be the last FLOTUS to maintain this tradition. If the future must not belong to those who would slander the prophet of Islam, presumably it also shouldn’t belong to women who would offend his inheritors by their immodesty.

The program seems to have taught them a valuable lesson in the realities of progressivism -- that when American voters give up power to busy-body progressives, the result is more control over their lives and the loss of individual liberties. They responded to this newfound reality with boycotts, social media angst, and filled trash cans instead of filled bellies.According to the Government...

    First lady Michelle Obamas 51st birthday is this week, and has its own jingle, but not the traditional "Happy Birthday." No, it sounds more like cha-ching, as in the cash register ringing up a new sale. Thats because the Democratic Party is using her 51st birthday to raise money. [Snip] Click the link to sign the card, and you get directed to a donor page seeking contributions up to $2,000.

    President Obama was not the only member of his household that fought to improve the P-20 education system in 2014. Michelle Obama carried out an impressive education agenda that rivaled her husband's in many respects. It seems that the two are a tag team for the ages, and P-20 education is lucky to have this duo championing it. Michelle Obama spent 2014 front and center for education -- in more ways than one. 1. First Lady endorses arts education. This past spring, First Lady Michelle Obama joined the stage with middle- and high-schoolers who performed in the first ever White...

    Just 24 hours after President Obama sat down for five-star dinner with the first lady, he was back in another renowned Hawaii restaurant for a luxury meal. He took his family to Nobu, a Japanese restaurant inside the hip Waikiki Parc Hotel where meals cost around $180 per person. Images showed his motorcade parked outside the stylish eatery as hundreds crowded to get a glimpse of the Commander-in-Chief, Michelle Obama and their two children. The president first ate at the upmarket restaurant in 2012 on New Year's Day, enjoying a three-hour meal of butter-poached lobster, roasted duck, and seared foie...

    For years, the government has been issuing guidelines about healthy eating choices. Now, a panel that advises the Agriculture Department is ready to recommend that you be told not only what foods are better for your own health, but for the environment as well. That means that when the latest version of the government's dietary guidelines comes out, it may push even harder than it has in recent years for people to choose more fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and other plant-based foods at the expense of meat....
  • National Enquirer reports famed White House chef quit over abusive behavior of Michelle O

    Say what you will about super market tabloids, but the National Enquirer was the only media outlet to expose John Edwards’ lying and cheating about fathering an out-of-wedlock child. Because it pays news sources, the Enquirer often gets stories that other media miss entirely. So it brings some credibility to its reporting that White House chef Sam Kass quit his job in protest over his treatment at the hands of Michelle Obama, dubbed the “Queen of Mean “ in the report. Kitchen magician Sam Kass got fed up with Michelle’s snippy comments and told the Obamas to take his...

    Queen of Mean” Michelle Obama has forced out another White House staffer – the First Family’s personal chef! Kitchen magician Sam Kass got fed up with Michelle’s snippy comments and told the Obamas to take his apron and shove it, insiders told The 
National ENQUIRER. “He just couldn’t take it – the relentless nitpicking, over petty little details that drove him insane. She thinks she’s Marie Antoinette!” a White House insider told The ENQUIRER. “It has nothing to do with Sam’s cooking, which is superb. But you could be Wolfgang Puck and Michelle wouldn’t be happy. She’ll find some reason...
