    I know it’s FLOTUS Friday…but Deep In the Heart of Texas linked this yesterday: Michelle Obama's 'nasty, rotty' school lunch guru busted for corruption  Michelle Obama praised Binkle for his newly reformed school lunch program, which nominally imposed his rarefied chef tastes of quinoa, pad thai, black bean burgers, and other chi-chi nouvelle cuisine as a substitute for tacos, burgers, and corn dogs favored by children across the vast multi-ethnic school district.  In reality, they were overcharging, overbilling, and under-delivering, with the food turning out to be basically slop.  It probably didn't help that it was public employee unions executing...

    Compare and Contrast is always a fun game on FLOTUS Friday, so let’s play:Float like a butterfly…or sting like a Queen Bee:The queen B gracefully drapes her long legs across the stage You can't deny it. Michelle Obama shattered a glass ceiling when she became the first black first lady in the United States. In one of her first appearances since leaving the White House, the former first lady was asked which shards of glass had cut her the deepest… "The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut," Obama replied, according to the Denver...

    Although Michelle O was always hyped said to be the most fashionable FLOTUS since Jackie O, some of us have always had our doubts. But the media still hasn’t given up on their Black Jackie, as this headline from earlier this week attests: Michelle Obama Sports a Fashion-Forward Look to Present at the ESPY Awards. Still pushing that “fashion forward” meme, I think you all saw how far forward yesterday:And that, my friends, is what’s know as a “wide stance”But back to our newest FLOTUS - a lot of people are beginning to think that perhaps she may actually be...

    Airing on June 25, the 2017 BET Awards were hosted by comedienne Leslie Jones and mostly featured live musical performances. Otherwise, the focus of the awards was a message of encouraging Black Lives Matter social justice warriors, although, without the long preachy political sermons delivered in many other awards shows. References to people killed in police-involved shootings - including the acquittal last week of the officer who shot Philando Castile - were present throughout. Four members of the cast of an upcoming movie titled Detroit, about the 1967 riots in that city, came out to present the Centric Award to...

    News One ^ | Written By China Dickerson
    Both Melania Trump and Michelle Obama had modest upbringings: one is White, born in Yugoslavia. The other is Black, raised on the South Side of Chicago. When Melania married Donald Trump in 2005, he was already a real estate magnate. When Michelle married Barack Obama in 1992, he had just become a law school professor. Both Trump and Obama went on to become president of the United States, and both women who hail from different walks of life, found themselves thrust in the job of first lady. So who has worn the FLOTUS title best? I submit, Michelle, 53. Not...

    Yahoo News ^ | June 18 2017
    Since leaving the White House in January, Michelle Obama has stayed relatively quiet and deprived us of her almost daily power-dressing inspiration. However, the former FLOTUS stepped out in N.Y.C. on Thursday in a vibrant summer sundress that we’re seriously hoping to copy for our next warm-weather event. For a day out in Manhattan, Obama chose a knee-length frock with vertical stripes of shades of blue and green that elongated her frame. She paired the vibrant dress with cat-eye sunglasses, hoop earrings, and nude pointy-toe pumps, keeping her accessories minimal to let her dress take center stage. ADVERTISING Michelle Obama...

    The former first lady says she's been hosting "bootcamps" for her friends to help whip them into shape and "be healthy together." [Snip] "When I was at the White House, I often hosted bootcamp weekends for my close girlfriends," Obama, 53, wrote. "It didn't matter that we were all at varying fitness levels. Our bootcamp weekends were a reminder that if we want to keep taking care of others, we need to take care of ourselves first."

    Michelle Obama looked out into an audience packed with mostly male tech workers and asked them to make room for women in technology. Obama was a guest speaker at WWDC, Apple's annual developer conference, on Tuesday. She was introduced by Tim Cook himself before sitting down with Lisa Jackson, the former head of the EPA who now heads up social and environmental initiatives for Apple. Their hour-long discussion touched on Obama's post-White House life, diversity in tech and not falling down the stairs of Air Force One. Apple did not allow press into the event, but CNN Tech spoke to...

    Ex-president Obama was right all along about gender inequality: Both these women have held the same job, and both have received the same pay (nothing) and yet…clearly life is unfair. I guess I can see how such inequality could lead to instability, violence, terrorism even. Today’s reflection compliments of Donnie, one of our regular irregulars.

    The ever-polished Michelle Obama stepped out this weekend in Montalcino, Italy, and gave us the best inspiration for a vacation style to steal for the summer. The former First Lady wore a pink one-shoulder shirt from Teija, a Finnish designer who trained under Christoper Bailey at Burberry before creating her own label. The shirt added a playful note to Michelle’s post–White House wardrobe, which has largely consisted of tea-length dresses and cashmere cardigans. She complemented the look with cropped white jeans, simple flat sandals, and gold hoops. This chic top is the perfect piece to wear all summer: It...

    Having former first lady Michelle Obama tweet your telephone number is one way to get a lot of attention. […] The telephone number apparently belongs to Duncan Wolfe, a former White House creative digital strategist. The tweet was quickly taken down. Calls were met with “I’m not available right now” and a mailbox full notification. An official who works for the Obamas says it was an accident and her account was not hacked. …

    Sometimes crossed signals can result in communication that go horribly and, in the case of comedian Chris Rock, hilariously wrong. What made the misunderstanding so funny is that it happened at the final White House party hosted by President Barack Obama. And the person with whom the signals were so horribly/hilariously misunderstood was First Lady Michelle Obama.  Chris Rock revealed what happened on the May 2 Tonight Show while recounting the laugh error to host Jimmy Fallon.

    Trump admin provides flexibility from Michelle Obama lunch! The Trump administration is allowing kids 300 more milligrams of salt in their school lunches. In one of his first acts as secretary of agriculture, Sonny Perdue announced his department was moving to "Make School Meals Great Again" by giving schools greater flexibility in complying with former First Lady Michelle Obama's lunch rules. Perdue, the former governor of Georgia, announced the changes on Monday during a visit to a Virginia elementary school. Schools can now provide an additional 320 mgs more sodium in school lunches, on average, and the government can now...

    The Trump administration is discontinuing a signature girls education initiative championed by former first lady Michelle Obama, according to officials. The "Let Girls Learn" program, which she and President Barack Obama started in 2015 to facilitate educational opportunities for adolescent girls in developing countries, will cease operation immediately, according to an internal document obtained by CNN. News of the program's end came the same day President Donald Trump's agriculture secretary, Sonny Perdue, was visiting an elementary school in suburban Virginia to announce changes to another initiative spotlighted by the former first lady, healthy school lunches. Perdue was set to unveil...
