    The former Secret Service agent Evy Poumpouras says an upsetting part of her previous job was not being able to protect Michelle Obama from racist slurs or signs while on duty. Poumpouras served on the presidential protective division for the first lady and President Barack Obama during their time at the White House. She also protected George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George H.W. Bush during her 12 years in the Secret Service. Writing in her 2020 memoir, "Becoming Bulletproof," Poumpouras recalled feeling "outraged" when seeing a racist sign directed at the first lady...... Poumpouras wrote. "I was on her...

    MICHELLE and Barack Obama enjoyed a swanky dinner with Steven Spielberg, Bruce Springsteen, and other Hollywood elites at Tom Hanks’ $26million mansion. The former US leader and first lady were spotted in Pacific Palisades on Sunday night, where the Secret Service took over the neighborhood to accommodate the A-listers' evening. Located in a cul de sac, Hanks' home was the perfect location for a lowkey but glitzy dinner after Tom and Rita celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary on Friday. The White House-turned-Tinseltown power couple was spotted sitting in a black car and staring intently at their phones as they left...

    CNN’s Don Lemon went on a bizarre rant Sunday night accusing President Donald Trump of possessing a severe aversion to his predecessor because Michelle Obama is apparently prettier and more accomplished than First Lady Melania Trump. “What is it about President Obama that really gets under your skin?” Lemon asked rhetorically to kick off his creepy monologue filled with awkward silences. Is it because he’s smarter than you? Better educated? Made it on his own? Didn’t need daddy’s help? Wife is more accomplished, better looking? I don’t know, what is it? What is it about him? That he’s a black...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign is planning a rollout for Michelle Obama’s endorsement, although there are questions around just how public a role the enormously popular former first lady will play in his campaign. Sources tell The Hill that the Biden campaign’s early plans include a focus on remote fundraising and voter registration efforts. The trick for Michelle Obama and the Biden campaign is finding the right balance for the pop culture icon, who could be a massive asset for the campaign but has never shown much enthusiasm for campaign politics. A source close to Michelle Obama said the...

    The success of Michelle Obama’s memoir Becoming apparently has Barack Obama feeling a lot of pressure for his own forthcoming memoir. Of course, his memoir has yet to be finished, and its release has been pushed back to 2020 or even 2021. “The writing has been going more slowly than he’d expected,” reports The Atlantic . “And according to several people who have spoken with him, the 44th president is feeling competitive with his wife, whose own book, Becoming, was the biggest release of 2018 and is on track to be the best-selling memoir in history.” Wow, that's sad. His...

According to Michelle, the incident served as a key lesson for her and her team - and they began to re-think their outfit choices moving forward. 'That was another outfit learning moment!' she joked.

The former first lady was seen slipping out of the side door of Crossroads Kitchen, an upscale vegan restaurant on West Hollywood's famous Melrose Avenue. Michelle walked in between two Secret Service agents before slipping into a black car. She sported a black dress...

    Michelle Obama is back doing one of the things she does best—giving compelling speeches. (Or, as she puts it, "I’m back! This is what back looks like.") On Friday, the former first lady gave her first big speech since she and her husband left the White House behind, and it had all the hallmarks of a classic Mobama address. There was empathy. There was hopefulness. And there was also, seemingly, at least a little shade thrown at the man who took over for her husband. (snip) "Trust me, I know this work isn’t easy, especially right now,” Obama said, according...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama was a breath of fresh air as usual while making a public appearance in Colorado since leaving the White House for a live armchair conversation with The Women’s Foundation of Colorado President Lauren Casteel. But even as poised and graceful as always, Obama touched on some tough topics, speaking out frankly about the hurt she felt from the racist attacks she received while in the White House. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said when Casteel asked her about the trials of being the first black...

    The newly devoid of hope Michelle Obama told a group of young Muslims and other immigrants Friday that "this country belongs to you." From The Star-Telegram: In her final speech as first lady on Friday, Michelle Obama singled out young immigrants and Muslims, many of whom express apprehension about President-elect Donald Trump. “Do not ever let anyone make you feel like you don’t matter, or like you don’t have a place in our American story — because you do,” she said. “Know that this country belongs to you, to all of you. From every background and walk of life. If...

    Donna Brazile fired back at her former employer, saying CNN ripped her “a new one” instead of letting her defend herself against leaked emails showing she gave Hillary Clinton a sneak peak at debate questions. “I wish CNN had given me some other things, like the ability to defend myself rather than ripping me a new one,” Brazile said at a Monday event at Hollins University, according to the Roanoke Times. “CNN never gave me a question,” Brazile said of her resignation. Brazile, who is the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, revealed that she’s still feeling pain over...

    Michelle Obama has bridled for years at the confines of life in the White House and has tried to steer clear of the partisan messiness that has consumed her husband and is fueling this year’s bare-knuckled presidential contest. But this week, Mrs. Obama will wade into the campaign fray on behalf of Hillary Clinton, putting her broad popularity and reputation for authenticity to work for a candidate who has suffered from a lack of both. At an event in northern Virginia on Friday, Mrs. Obama will urge voters to register ahead of the state’s Oct. 17 deadline, the first of...
