The worst First Lady in our nation’s history

MICHELLE OBAMA RELATES HER OWN PERSONAL HORROR STORY OF RACISM

“I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new.”

The fact that this entitled, affirmative-action Princeton graduate is offended by someone asking for her help, whose automatic, knee-jerk response to a request for a helping hand is to interpret it as an act of racism, says all there is to say about her world view and her narcissistic personality. I have often offered to retrieve items from shelves for people who can’t reach them: male, female, black, white – it’s called one person helping another – part of our role as human beings. For the president’s wife, it’s all about other people meeting her demands, and screw the rest.

Oh boy, boy! get me another.

Oh boy, boy! Get me another.

UPDATE: Turns out, Obama’s boss, Valerie Jarrett, demanded a refill of her wine glass from a four-star general she mistook for a waiter. He went and got her one, without comment or complaint.

White House economic adviser Austan Goolsbee, who was seated next to Jarret, began “cracking up nervously,” our tipster said, but no one pointed out to Jarrett that the man sporting a chestful of medals was not her waiter.

“The guy dutifully went up and got her a glass of wine, and then came back and gave it to her and took a seat at the table,” our tipster said. “Everyone is in tuxedos and gowns at this thing, but the military people are in full dress uniform.”

Which is the difference between a gentleman and a pampered pig.

  1. Can’t wait to see her go! Absolutely zero class! And Ms Lauten was spot on about the daughters, theïr appearance looked like they were looking for a place at the bar!

    I am white and I’ve had the same experience more than once-BFD

      The experience of racism like this may be is deplorable. Happens all the time in mostly white environments, especially in Manhattan where a person living in the building or a visiting relative of that person is mistaken for the household help, and it is usually indiscreet neighbors. Being asked to sweep the floor by the neighbor across the hall when one is visiting a relative and is not the cleaning person is really insulting.

      On the other hand, I often ask for help getting something down from the top shelf at the A&P, and whoever passes by is usually helpful. Michelle is tall and that is the criterion for being able to reach the top shelf.

      I frequently asked well dressed white people who appear to have neither an outer coat or bags with them if they work at a store, even a discount store Sometimes they do, sometimes not. I always ask shoppers in a strange store if they know where the bathroom or a department is. Most people will tell you if they know. So many of these things in stores relate to not many workers per square foot of store and shoppers thinking they can get help from other shoppers.

    I so deeply despise this woman, this shameful excuse for a first lady. Surprising that she and hubby can even stand under the tremendous weight of the giant chips on their shoulders. Funny that she refers to that phony baloney photo op trip to Target. Surely she was accompanied by Secret Service and the press, and she claims someone asked her to get something down for her? Highly doubtful. (BTW, I get asked all the time, bc I’m tall).

      Even when she’s not in a ‘disguise’, who can tell she’s the first lady? Not I.

        Ha! Good catch. I forgot to type my handle in. Oh- and I actually agree with the post and the comments re: FLOTUS’s attitude problem (at least as displayed in the amended tale). Helping others is just part of the social contract, but rudeness isn’t. For some reason, I used to be a Weirdo/Rude Prick magnet when I was younger.

      Citizenette: I was wondering the same thing re: the Secret Service. Ditto: on helping other people reach things, etc. *That* doesn’t bother me at all. Though for years after I left retail, I was approached in Saks, etc by other customers who assumed I worked there. Finally learned to dress uber casual to go shopping (I tended to attract extremely rude elderly or upper-middle aged women for some reason. It did get tiresome, I’ll admit.)

      • See the comment above – apparently Michelle tells the story one way when she wants to be a woman of the people, and offers another version when she’s posing as a victim of racism.
        As another reader said, I can’t wait for our country to be rid of this odious couple.

    Chewbacca can F-Off, thank you very much.

    Is anyone watching Obama’s address on Cuba, we are opening an embassy there and our healthcare workers are going to join together in “people to people” engagement. Soon we will all get RED cards to make the transition to communism complete.

      I am watching and wonder how the president can make such a decision without any discussion from Congress.

      • I don’t know either. The embargo was passed by Congress, and only Congress has the right to repeal its laws. Then again, Obama often mistakenly claims that the Executive branch of our government “sits atop” the judicial and congressional – he sees a pyramid, where the founders (and every president before him) saw three, co-equal branches with different responsibilities and powers.

        • anonymous

          He did this when congress is in recess!!!! it’s NO accident this was announced today. He knows he’s powerless so he’s taking every opportunity to look like he’s doing something, that is before he boards AF1 Friday morning. 🙂

          From last night’s agenda: “The Speaker announced that the House do now adjourn pursuant to H. Con. Res. 125. The next meeting is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on January 2, 2015. resolution. Agreed to without objection.”

        Anon: don’t be so surprised. He went to Harvard Law School, after all. They stopped teaching their students the actual law years ago, and deemed Constitutional Law an “elective” subject, worthy of a mere semester’s worth of “instruction” as well. It’s the equivalent of med school not requiring that it’s students take Anatomy – imagine how well that would work out.

          Tweet that relates to this discussion.

          @hale_razor: The Cuban embargo is the result of six acts of Congress, but undoing it is the act of one constitutional scholar.

      I don’t agree with Obama on many issues but I think he made the correct decision on Cuba. I am not sure that China has a better human rights record.

      • It’s not whether one proves or disapproves of a specific action by the man but whether he has the constitutional power to do what he does through executive action or “memoranda”. He does not, and the power he’s usurped to get done things you may agree with will come back to haunt the country when another president comes along and uses the same claimed power to pass his own agenda.

    I am white and have been asked to help quite a few times. Two reasons: One – I am pretty tall and can reach things high up. Two – if I am not wearing a coat they think I work in the store. BFD is right.

    A commenter at Weasel Zippers remembered that Michelle told this story on Letterman, but, mmmm, minus the race slice of pie. Looks like She’s altered the story to fit the People article. Sick. Sick. Sick

    “I have to tell you something about this trip though. No one knew that was me because a woman actually walked up to me, right? I was in the detergent aisle, and she said — I kid you not — she said, ‘Excuse me, I just have to ask you something,’ and I thought, ‘Oh, cover’s blown.’ She said, ‘Can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?’ I kid you not…And the only thing she said — I reached up, ’cause she was short, and I reached up, pulled it down — she said, ‘Well, you didn’t have to make it look so easy.’ That was my interaction. I felt so good. … She had no idea who I was. I thought, as soon as she walked up — I was with my assistant, and I said, ‘This is it, it’s over. We’re going to have to leave.’ She just needed the detergent.

    Worse, in this version Michelle says “I felt so good.” She felt good reaching for a box of detergent?????? If that doesn’t make a statement about her privileged ass, I don’t know what does.

    The People Magazine article is no different than the Rolling Stone pack of lies. It was written to fit the magazine agenda, that racism is Word One and what supposedly drives every white person’s decisions.

    Racism hypocrisy is alive and well in all of the Obama sphere. Oprah, the Queen of race baiters, worse than Michelle, was the first one to scream bloody hell when Donald Sterling’s personal hooker illegally taped his comments. Oprah went on a rampage, part of the group calling for his firing and even offered to buy the team. Fast forward to yesterday, over the Sony personal email hacking and all of a sudden, she says

    I would hope that we would not stand in judgement, in such harsh judgement, of a moment in time where somebody was hacked and their private conversations were put before the world,” Winfrey added, “There are things that you say in your private conversations, with your friends, with your colleagues, that you would not want to be broadcast on
    CNN.”

    Ye Old Double Standard is Alive and Well.

    New policy shift on Cuba just announced by O. I more bothered by his quotes that its an outdated policy that needed change (gee, are we doing the same with Russia and isn’t working to some degree?) than the actual shift. On foreign policy, you have to be more careful about appearing to be political in nature, otherwise respect suffers.

    obama complains of not being able to hail a cab…I assume he means NYC…no cab drivers are white….mainly persian/arabic or otherwise so why do black people complain as if white america is racist b/c of this?

    Lets not forget….the only reason this incompetent president with no real-world experience and no background was elected was the color of his skin….period. If he was white, he couldnt get elected to city council.

    Like many others, more times than I wish, I’ve mistaken someone who’s a shopper like me as someone who works at the company. Plus, being 5’1″, I just about NEVER can reach anything! Tall people 5’5″ or higher; watch out!

    Of course, has nothing to do with skin color. Red shirt at Target, someone looking industrious and knowledgeable, etc. etc. (Then again, who on earth would mistake Mrs. Obama for industrious OR knowledgeable?!?!) Tall? Yeah….

    I might ax her to help me if i was at the zoo.

    Chris-
    “Doctor Mengele”, your Dentist, here.
    I recall a cold wet November day at the end of the last century when you and I struggled to take a boat out of the water at the Riverside Yacht Club, scrape its raggedy hull and put it on a trailer for winter hibernation. Even on a good day, I’m not much to look at, but after that exercise, covered in bilge and barnacles, I looked like something the cat coughed up.
    Being the gentleman that you are, you offered to buy me a beer if I waited on the front steps of the Yacht Club while you moved the boat away from the launch area. While standing on the front steps of the Yacht Club with my hands thrust into my jacket pockets to warm my frozen hands, a guest at a wedding reception drove up, tossed his keys at me, and went inside. Whereas I would love to have considered the car a gift from a compassionate liberal, I knew that he had mistaken me for a valet car parker.
    Quite understandable, given the circumstances. You showed up, I told you the story, and we had a good laugh.
    By the way, did they ever find that car?
    (Just kidding).
