Don’t dare question Michelle Obama, even on small things such as her dietary laws and exercise programs. Why else would she hold “Listen Only” telephone conference calls?
The First Lady, wanting to promote her “Let’s Move” initiative for kids and never-eat-french fries-again campaign, held a conference call last week with reporters to talk about her programs. Reporters could participate by invitation only and were banned from making any comments or asking questions during or after her communique. She lectured them on the virtues of exercise and eating right, expecting them to convey this message to their eager audiences.
What? Has she become Evita on the Potomac? Why do they swallow this? Surely reporters did not like this format.
Maybe she didn’t want to be questioned about the fat fueled Superbowl party they held on Sunday. Reportedly it featured more pork than a Democrat budget: bratwurst, kielbasa, cheeseburgers, deep dish pizza, buffalo wings, German potato salad, twice baked potatoes, chips, dips and a First Lady favorite – ice cream.
