MICHELLE OBAMA SHORT SHORTS

WASHINGTON, DC – After her husband’s first fashion faux pas, First Lady Michelle Obama has apparently committed her own.
Bloggers and news pundits alike are discussing Michelle’s outfit after she dressed down during a recent family vacation.
This was how she was photographed exiting Air Force One after returning from the Grand Canyon:

Her supposed faux-pas as First Lady follows not long after President Obama was criticized for wearing “mom jeans” at a baseball game.
Should this be such a big deal? Michelle was on a family vacation, not official business, and spending time in a very hot area of the United States.
Or should she be expected to represent the White House at all times, regardless of the circumstances?

    • Yeah, but she's the First Lady…at least she could've worn an awesome top and a cute shortie skirt or pull it off with accessories or something and the way her hair is YUCK! Put a bow on it or fluff it up or SOMETHING it's so drab, so NOT First Lady-ish…she looks like the First Lazy…not the First Lady, because it looks like she was too lazy to pick out a nice looking outfit. She knows she's in the public eye and her counterparts are other heads of state and royalty, so as First Lady she should always look her best. Save the K-mart stuff for when her man's outta office.

    • omg worry about something that f"cking matters. If she'd come out in bruno magli you'd be complaining about her wasteful spending.

    • I had rATHER SEE HER DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT UGLY FACE. MMMMMMMMMMMMM THAT WOMAN IS UUUUUGUUULLLLYYYY

    • well lets hope you look half as good as she does, you cant criticize if you dont have a leg to stand on. lets see you wear a suit and dress shoes while your on vacation.

    • who cares if she's the first lady?? it's not like she looks awful. she was on VACATION with her family. cut her some slack damn.

    • I think the whole point is she is trying to be comfortable, (she does not look grungy, she is clean!) and to change how people see the first lady. She has shown this with most outfits she picked out. You just don't like it because it isn't "diva-ish." Plus why do people care so much! Get over it, she is fabulous….!

    • Those shorts are not short shorts. Short shorts are under ones butt line. The shorts she had on are bermuda shorts. Who cares anyway!!!!! She is on vacation it's hot and she dresses the way 99% of the women her age dresses. Who cares if she is the First Lady. At least she is real and not a snit, like some we've had in the past. Get over yourself and get a life.

    • Michelle obama dressed right. She was on vacation and in the park. It would have been wrong to dress otherwise.
      She must not be compared to other first ladies because she is a lawyer and the others are not.
      mrs obama is most appropriate first lady of the united states.

  1. Could she be uglier?! Geezus pleezus! That woman needs a makeover FAST! She could be pretty if she had the wig on she usually wears, some make-up and a better outfit…she's the frickin' First Lady for Pete's sake and she's walking around like she's a K-mart blue light special!! Get some class m'dear…please represent the U.S. better!

  2. She has TWENTY personal assistants as well as a hairdresser… She should look professional out in public, and there is no excuse. A pair of capris or skirt would have looked much better. She is in the public eye and should be professional at all times. This shows poor judgement, similar to that of her husband. What fools we are….

    Reply
    • She was on VACATION! Why would she have to look professional to have fun??? Its not like she was prancing around in a two-piece.

  3. LEAVE HER ALONE!!! This is so stupid! I think she looks just fine. Its like 100 degrees outside, should she have worn a long sleeve shirt with jeans and boots lol?? I don't see the problem. Its not like there booty shorts or something. I don't think they're that short! People will say anything, get a life! He's the President and he will for a while so get used to it! If Michelle were another race it wouldn't be a big deal!

    Reply
    • Yes because now that the big cheese is in the Whitehouset she does not hate America anymore. There moving on up.

    • It has nothing to do with her race. Her husband holds the highest office in our land. She should be a great representation of this great land and its peoples. I dress better than that when going on vacation.

  4. People in this country have too little to do if they worry about the First Lady wearing shorts!
    OMG!
    "signofthetimes? So…if she shopped at KMart, wouldn't that be saving $s and not spending 100s on a pair of shorts!
    LMAO! Too funny GetaLife!

  5. She looks comfortable and respresentative of the VAST majority of the people here in THIS country! She is not Royalty, she is the First Lady of the UNITED STATES where we are FREE to dress as we please! The Obama's are probably the best respresentatives we have ever had of the working class people that make our country go round! And the fact that they are willing to remain "real people" instead of pretending to be snotty "upper-crust" is to be commended, not condemned!!! WAY TO GO MICHELLE!!!!

    • Well said…..she is on vacation with her family. Not big news, just NORMAL… and good for them for keeping some sort of normalcy in their lives even in light of the fact that EVERYTHING they do is scrutinized by people who have no life

    • True, i so agree with Pro Bama. I LOVE the fact that they are normal people and a normal family just like the rest of us Americans, they are the perfect representatives of this country and I do not find anything offensive nor wrong about what she is wearing, totally normal. The people causing a stir about this are the representatives, who are still upset that an educated black man got voted into the white house, especially right after Bush, ugh! And no, I am not an AA, just a proud democart and proud American.

  6. Wow…with everything going on in America and abroad the only thing the media is focused on is First Lady Obama wearing shorts while on VACATION? Seriously…what is this world coming too? I applaud First Lady Obama for not conforming to what "society" think she should be and how she should act as First Lady. When will the media and other realize that…the Obama's are too classy to "trip" on what mainstream America say. Now my suggestion…focus on some real life issues and leave her shorts and wardrobe alone…PERIOD!!!!!

    • You are so shallow!! she is not at a ball or fancy restaurant, dummy she is at the grand canyon…the Desert!!! shorts a fine, you all shutup! and get a life! you are obviousley bored!!

  7. The focus should not be on First Lady Obama's outfit it should be on. Love your neighbor as you love yourself…3JOhn 3:16 how many people have been in a position to help, but yet they were so self center they could not see past them….They are a family …..What ever is focus on shall expand….this country is at war, people are loosing jobs, healthcare is under attack and the waste of time about a pair of shorts is crazy to me…God Bless America….now get a life and get some business and stay out of Michelle's…..

  8. She is the First Lady, but also a mother on vacation with her family. It's to bad the press and others don't worry about whats going on in the world. Stop trying to cause problems, don't we have enough? Maybe the press should not be allowed to follow these people. That is why I stopped watching the news…the important word being NEWS…not what the first lady wore.

  9. Ironically,she is dressed like a lady, and looking comfortable. It makes no difference about being first lady, she is a woman, with a woman personna, and a mom, her first example is to her God, then her family, then the white house.

  10. We have economy, health care and a small thing called a war going on yet this is a head liner. I think the american people has more to be concerner with other than the length of the first lady's shorts.

  11. Wow…is this what our country is coming to…all we can debate on is whether or not Mrs. Obama was misrepresenting our country by wearing shorts on hee VACATION…all you people with these negative comments need to get a life…what do u wear on vacation…if u wear a suit and tie or a formal dress while hiking to the grand canyon…thats your business…why must u judge people…and to all u OBAMA HATERS grow the hell up…all our President is trying to do is make the country a better place…and to the idiots who suggested she wear a skirt…slap yourself…that is the stupidest thing i have ever heard…what a moron….
    and by the way, feel free to reply to my post…but i suggest u keep your stupid comments to yourself…

  12. I think America has more to worry than the First Lady's clothes. I think she looks great. Like someone mentioned, if she wore anything else it would still be critisied. What she does on a family vacation is non of anyone's bussiness. She has the confidence to carry it off. LEAVE HER ALONE and worry about the economy of the country!!!

  13. Well I just came in from outdoors (backyard) in my underware and the lady next door was having a lemonade party for friends. Why don't we just ask the nudist camp what they think; since most of us belong to one. Or shall we call out a few names. Americans smartest people on paper but don't say a word. (SICK) GO GIRL. We never had many black visitors in the oval house. Lets get it on.

  15. You people make me disgusted to live in America…. judging our first lady like that. Why does it matter anyway??? You apparently must have no lives that you have to come on here to say nasty things about the way people dress. Sounds like someone has self image issues…. I feel sorry for people like that. Good luck in life if "issues" like the "length of Michelle Obamas shorts" are of high importance to you.

  16. UMM..PPL DOES IT MATTER WHAT SHE IS WEARING. DANG! SHES NORMAL JUST LIKE US. ITS ARIZONA THEY ARE IN! ITS GOING TO BE HOT. AND PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT HOW SHORT THEY ARE??? THEY ARE GOING TO LOOK SHORTER ON HER BECAUSE OF HER LONG LEGS AND ITS BETTER TO SEE HER IN THESE SHORTS THEN HER WEARING BOOTY SHORTS AND LOOKING LIKE COMPLETE TRASH.

  21. I heard all the pros and cons on mrs. Obama. and you are right she is on vacation but she's also the 24 /7 wife of the President and should realize that she represents the USA to the world. She doesn't have a private life anymore. That's the reward for her position

    Reply
    • that mean what? she's not a mom? she's not a wife? please, i say she is carrying herself well.
      i hope she continues to be as real as she is.

    • amen! and amen! skip you said it best….. and i totally agree. mrs. obama does look like she just left k-mart. and for all those people that's not up on classic sport wear probably are k-mart dressers. there are so many styles of classic sport wear to choose from today and not necessarily over priced. the first lady has not realized her ragged days are inappropriate as first lady of our country. when my family and i go on any type of vacation we are usually dressed very moderately. young people in the u.s. has already lost a lot of diginity in how they dress as it is surely they don't need to see ghetto dressing from the first lady. OK?

  22. I think she looked fine ..she's on vacation..how would you dress in the Grand Canyon? Pearls & gown or shorts to be comfortable..get a life!!

  23. wow leave the women alone, for pete sake shes on vacation and surely it's hot outside.

  31. THANK YOU! All of these idiots seem to keep forgetting that this particularly hideous woman is the wife of what used to be the most powerful country in the known universe!

  40. Why did she go for a more classy per of short ? First lady is a high honour, she is representing no only all the woman also her own country and she should dress accordingly. She is dropping the standard.

  41. This is so nuts. All the people judging her are the ones hating. The lady is in her 40's. She is wearing a pair of shorts people. She still has young children and does not have to dress like old ladies, nor will we see her dress in booty shorts either. The lady has class, I am sure we all have seen that. Remember it is time for change, just as you see a black President in office. It is what is inside that you need to consider. Bet you wish you had other things to talk about with this President dont you? You could have the President sleeping with all these woman and prostitutes, or even men for crying out loud, but you dont, so the best you all could do is talk about her shorts. This President will probably be Americas best. Get used to it!!!!!!! Lots of America voted this remember????

  42. YOU GO FIRST LADY!!!! You are just as human and normal as the rest of us. If you want to wear walking shorts so be it… you can have a casual day just like everyone else in America. Aleast she is not sporting pajamas like some of you that get up in the morning and wear them to the store and keep them on ALL DAY and sleep right back in them…now think about that the next time you want to TRY and down the FIRST LADY'S CLOTHING… there are more important issues than her shorts…why not chat about healthcare, the war,

  46. Michelle is a trend setter, I think its wonderful for her to be herself, and not try to dress the way other individuals that were previously in her position. Michelle is respectfully dressed at all time and that's what counts; she represents quality, respect and most of all she is family oriented. Did you notice how casually dressed her daughter was, it was a family vacation. Keep in mind the first lady has class and style……..

  50. This is the most stupidest thing that i have heard of so far. i have heard some crazy things but this takes the cake. i thought that my fellow americans would be more concerned about the WAR, HEALTHCARE, UNEMPLOYMENT, and HOMELESS PEOPLE than about a freaking pair of shorts. These people don't have any kind of life at all. Did anyone say anything about the other women that had on shorts? I am disgusted with most of the american people. We got a serious problem if this is what americans are worried about. Let the woman alone. At least she has a life. Sounds to me like people are jealous. So go put on a nice fancy dress, get your hair done and put on all that make-up and go play golf or something. Just leave her alone!!!!!!!!

  55. Perhaps the general public should be voting on her undergarments as well. Give her a break. Regardless of party line, she was on vacation (something we all need a little of) and attire is personal. Had this been a "sanctioned" event where she was hosting someone, I could see it being anyone's business. Get over it!

She was not on official business and when she is, she dresses beautifully. She is a much younger woman that the ones before her. Isn't this what most of us wanted in the White House…A CHANGE in the stuffy, rigid, uptight politicals? I say, GO FOR IT Michele Obama. And, to the news media…let's hear about some of the IMPORTANT things she is DOING…not what she is WEARING…BE real AMERICA!!!!

  59. Just because she is a woman doesn't automatically mean she has to get "made up." Why didn't ugly G.W.Bush have to get made up when he went out on the town? He could use a few nips and tucks here. She's on vacation with family she can look as ugly as she wants.

  63. If you have read any of the commentary made about her brands of choice K-MART is far from where she would purchase any clothing items. Do your research before you try to put her down as far as the brand of clothes she wears. We would more than likely find you shopping at K-MART for an outfit before she would. You don't have to agree with everything she wears. Lastly I don't believe you will find any Tracy Feith, Roberto Cavalli, Jason Wu, Lanvin and the list goes on. These shorts look more like J.Crew which is also a fav of hers. Your probably jealous because you would never be able to wear the shorts she was photographed in.

  65. I agree with you…I don't think her shorts were inappropriately short. I think that she and her husband are over criticized. Further more yes her husband holds the highest office but she is still human. It was not an official event…its her vacation…she can dress down.

  66. This is why the minds of people are so, are so sadly distorted today because they focus more on the things about other people that has nothing to do with them. How sad is it to make an issue about a pair of shorts on Mrs.Obama but you don't make a worldly issue about the clothes makers who design pants with everything tooo big and people thinking it's Fashion to wear them below their waist line. At least her shorts fit,FOOLS.. Not to short, not too tight, but hell, most of you would complain anyway because it is not the Fake White House Norm!! Dig It..

  67. God designed Michelle as he desinged you and I and what we wear on the out side do not make who we are she can dress to fit the way she feel and I like the fact she is being who she is and being real with who she is just because she has a title of being the first lady she was and is God's child so she to me is not taking a title for granted and just being herself rrelaxed and doing what she do which is minding her own business and spending time with her family. People get a life and sweep in front of your own fromnt door before you start on someone else's. When you point you have some coming back to you. We all fall short of the role we hold being a mother , wife, sister,brother, friend ect. YOU GO GIRL AND KEEP IT REAL.

  69. Being First Lady isn't really a job… it's more of a title. She doesn't have to "represent" the US because she's only the wife to an important person. Do we also look at the clothing of spouses of congress men and women when they're on vacation etc.? I think not. While we're at it, why don't we consider the clothes that their children are wearing on vacation? I'm sure they're not wearing dressy clothing, but no one cares because "they're just kids"? Even so I think she appropriately "represents" the US because a majority of people in warm areas of the US dress in shorts. How is that not representing "the people" in regards to the US? The headline says "short shorts" but they really aren't short at all. I know people in their 80s who still wear shorts. If anything were to inappropriately represent the US it would be our idiotic reality TV shows filled with ill mannered/tempered people who dress like strippers, not Mrs. Obama's casual shorts.

Stop trying to find things Wrong with Good, REAL, PEOPLE and enjoy the REALNESS of GOOD PEOPLE, hopefully like you do yourself and the people you know. That person called signof thetimes sounds like they really have low self-esteem issues with themselves and speak with a jealous tongue. Don't HATE,, APPRECIATE… Go to K-Mart and buy you a pair of shorts and I hope that you look good in yours, as The First Lady does in hers… PEACE to ALL,,, I'm out….

  78. "faux-pas"? she looks like an american on vacation to me. i think she IS representing our nation, do these judgemental people go on vacation in formal attire? why does everyone have to be so picky? NOONE EVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT CLINTON JOGGING IN SWEATS! would people rather her spend $10,000 on a designer outfit? the economy is a mess, i commend her for her thrift and openness. more "americans" could take a lesson from her. that's the problem with this country of our's, "STATUS" if we all woried about our selves more and others less, and quit playing "keep up with the Jones's" maybe…no deffinately… we would not be in the finacial mess we're in. most everybody in this country these days thinks their entitled to something just because they live or were born here. GROW-UP!!!! if you work for it, and earn it, it means a whole lot more!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  80. There is no reason for her not to wear the shorts. What lame person labeled them short shorts. I beg to differ. It sound as if we still have haters of her fashion sense. She looks good and has great legs. Get over it public, she has a right to establish her fashion style. She is and will always be different from all other first ladies.

They wanted to be able to say that these are lazy people, and they have all these family member laiding around the White House partying all night. Well quess what, if her shorts is all that you have.

I live in Tucson and I think First Lady or not I would have dressed the same way! I must say the I completely agree with "Probama!" If she had worn a dress, hat, heels, and gloves people would be criticizing that! It all comes down to whether you like her or the President, it doesn't matter what they wear, say, or do; people are going to talk negatively about them. I thought America had come a long way but I guess we have a long way to go! Maybe one day we will all grow up!

Oh. another note to this… I bet the president would have love to wear shorts … ,but maybe he needs too look classy for the people who complain.

  110. I think she looks great… she is a first lady that knows the importance of seperating family from work. Michelle is strong and confident in her stance to dress comfortable for a vacation and to spend some much needed quality time with her family and not worry about the public cynical comments of her casual dressing. The public must realize that she is and always will be a full-time mother and wife. I guess some people would expect her to dress formal and represent the United States when she tuck her kids in bed at night. Please stop criticisizing her and recognize that she deserves to have some personal time for herself and her family.

This would not be news if Michelle were not an African-American woman. Give this woman a break! Give this family a break! I do agree that perhaps Michelle could have had on a cuter "shorts ensemble" perhaps the top and shorts could have matched, but that's about it. The Grand Canyon is ridiculously hot – you have to be comfortable, and during the course of the day, you will get wrinkled and might ACTUALLY SWEAT. As for her hair, wake up people, she has it pulled back in a bun. She can't win can she? She was on vacation, a private family matter. What will the media do next? Go into the Obama's bedroom and see what she sleeps in?? This woman is not a prude. She is on the cutting edge of fashion, is very self-confident, has a great body and is a breath of "fresh air" in the white house. Now if she goes and gets a tattoo across her neck and pierces her lip, then we have something to worry about. But for those of you that don't know, we don't all do that!! Loosen up America.

  154. Well this is what millions of voters wanted. It's a casual, laid back country full of casual, laid back people, isn't it? Men don't want to wear suits or ties anymore, complain if they do, women much the same. If you want something different, people will have to vigorously reject the whole 1960s ideology of humanistic egalitarianism, moral relativism, etc. I don't see it happening until the last of my generation, the baby boomers, are dead. Since history goes in cycles, future generations will no doubt look and behave differently, likely with a different population in place as well. Think how ridiculous dignified, elegant clothes like were worn in the 19th century would be on most contemporary people. That's what I mean by needing a whole different population. Today, even pressed slacks and shined lace up shoes or a ladies tailored dress and hat (like Grace Kelly for instance) are too 'dressed up', even for church. Does the current vogue in western civilization really deserve to look different from what the people are on the inside?

While I agree that when he was elected President (don't blame me, I voted the other way), she knew she would live her life in a fishbowl until the day she dies, she is entitled to some down time, just like anyone else. I don't think those shorts are offensive, I think she looks like a mother. Which….SURPRISE! That is exactly what she is!

  162. At least I know that this outfit did not cost the taxpayers very much. I think we spend way too much for her wardrobe – it is nice seeing something obviously off the rack that she most likely bought herself, pre First Lady days.

  163. i agree! The First Lady should look like a Lady!!! She looks like a Kmart Blue light special addl! Vacation or not she should represent class not white trash!

  164. Leave the woman alone, yeahh she is first lady but do you think its fair she is being treated like this FOR WEARING SOME SHORTS its not like she pulled asian eyes like miley cyrus

  165. Kudos to Mrs. Obama for not wearing designer crap on vacation during a recession. I bet that outfit cost less than $30, not counting the shoes. If she'd worn her usual nice clothes, people would be giving her crap for spending so much during a recession. How many of you people have actually been to Arizona, anyway? It's hot as hell there. She was probably pretty hot in what she had on. Would you rather she got heat stroke looking good? Come on, people.

  166. she looks like a crack whore, she could have dressed in a sun dress, or something cute at least, the first lady is a total embarrassment and the reporters that rode on airforce One said they are pigs and they have never seen such disgusting, sloppy, lazy slobs ever. The plane looked like a trash can, dont they have people to clean up for them? dont they have people to tell them what is appropriate and what is not? The excuse that it was hot wont fly, there is air conditioning and in Texas when it is over 100 degrees, people still dress nicely.

  167. michelles wardrobe???—well–i think she could do better with a "little less fitted" outfits—but the sleevless dresses & shorts???—-whens the last time we had a first-lady YOUNG enough to wear them?????????

  168. Paula you dessicated clam, first, if you want to know what a crack whore looks like, just go to your family reunion.
    Second, you gibbering retarded babboon, the Grand Canyon is not air conditioned. It's OUTSIDE.
    I realize that as the offspring of incestuous rape who is physically deformed, you never venture outside for fear of being shot by animal control, but other people actually are permitted to go outside from time to time.

  170. OMG She's wearing shorts! USA Sucks.
    Do you really think we care abaut what your 1st lady wears? All who used that logic are idiots.
    It is okey from my point of view. whats the problem?

    Reply
  171. Why should a woman have to dress up all the time? Regardless of what she symbolizes, she's still a woman, it was a hot day, and she was on vacation. Those shorts aren't short AT ALL. They're practically capri pants. Who cares if she's dressing like a normal person instead of like what you think a first lady should look like?

    Reply
  172. She should be able to dress anyway she chooses.just like we do…..only most of us don't have a camara to follow us everywhere we go…..and as far as those shorts being short.please.lol''next thing you know they will tell us how to dress at wally world……ooooh my bad they already do…what are some of you people the dress police………?? I though this was stil a free country….you are still FREE NOT to LOOK…..<oh my>…

  173. The same people criticizing her comfortable outfit as "classless" are the ones who want to vote for Palin because she is "every woman" and "Down to Earth." I see no problem with the first lady enjoying her vacation in whatever she wants to wear. At least she isn't setting records with the amount of vacations like Bush did.

  176. Some of you people are totally out of control, accept the fact that the Obamas' are in the WHITE House and I emphasize WHITE and they are there to stay. The First Family is an icon, they have not let their position go to their heads, they are an everyday family and we should be thankful for that. Why is it that when there was Caucasians in the White House no one cared about what they wore or how their way of life affected our country? Get a life people there are far more serious things going on in the world than for us to focus on the clothing of our First Lady.

    Reply
  177. I'm the first one to say that I don't care for the Mr. and Mrs. Obamas. With that said, leave the woman alone. It's her vacation and she can wear what she wants. Good Grief! I think there are much more important things to worry about.

  181. don't worry about the clothes. she looks bad but that doesn't matter. all you hear is how we all have to sacrafice but somehow she doesn't look like she and the obama family aren't suffering at all. obama talks about "how much money does one have to have and how everyone else is greedy" what about them!

    Reply
  182. Some you people do not cease to amaze. At the end of the day Michelle Obama is a woman, a mother, a career oriented woman and someone who is touched with the reality of life. She is reflecting that reality right now and expressing outside the box of glit and glamour. She has show herself to be modest whilst at the same exhitbiting her sophiscated side. There is nothing wrong with what she is wearing. The occasion merits it. What should she wear to swimming pool?

  183. If it was G.W.'s wife she would be blasted to hell and back! Her job is 24/7 she needs to act appropriately. Then again, her dip of a husband has messed up the office of President more than enough so she's just following suit. Oh well, we shouldn't expect anything less from them!

  185. Michelle Obama gets my vote for having the most unsightly legs of any first lady since Eleanor Roosevelt. Even the tree stump legs of Hillary Clinton weren't that awful — and they were pretty awful. At least Clinton was astute enough to possess the world's largest collection of pantsuits. Obama should consider becoming a Muslim and wear a burqa and a hijab. Heck, she could even through away her wig.

  186. she is getting off AF One. if not on duty as 1st lady she should go commercial and dress as she pleases. if on taxpayers dime she should dress the part.

  187. I think you need to get some class, Michelle is still a human being, and she just came back from vacation with her daughter, Michelle is very beautiful woman inside out, and she's being herself, She' s the first lady and she knows it and don't have to flaunt it. She's down to earth. Her status does not make her snuff her nose at us. When her tour of duty is over with she's one of us. Stop being jealous.

    Reply
  188. I bet she's wearing those shorts as some sort of secret code to the Muslims that she's still one of them and hasn't gone and converted to Protestant or Jew or any American Approved religion. If she was a true patriot she'd wear Red, white AND blue at all times. You'll notice no sign of red anywhere. Now Nancy (Just SAY Blow, I mean NO) Reagan always wore red dresses. Now there was a first lady for ya. Here psychic always told her how to advise the President to lead the country. What a team. Bet cha $5 Michele YoMama doesn't even have a psychic. She doesn't care enuf to bother with it.

  189. PLEASE tell me why you had to bring the "race issue" into this ???? You are a big ol bigot. this has nothing to do with her race,this is only at all, because she's the first lady. Not because she's black.All the 1st ladies have been ridiculed at one time or another for their appearance. All the others were white. I guess it was about their race too, huh ?

  191. ALL 1st families are totaly scrutinized, and if you think that more than half of the people in this country have no life just because we put her up for scrutiny just like we always have for every other 1st lady , then you must be so wrapped around the tree you're gonna give birth to a twig.

  192. I know , without knowing YOU, that you are way far left, because you guys always resort to calling names and ridiculing any one with whom you disagree. You call people whose OPINION is that she should dress better in public tight asses, and you assume and declare that we all have fat ugly legs. You are judgemental and narrow minded.Oh and by the way, out numbered.

  193. To me the shorts are not the problem, it's that dang tank top. She need to try wearing a strapless bra to put her breast in the correct position and cover up her nipples, for God's sake. Casual or not..all class does not have to go out the window. I'm a black women with the same pear shape as Michelle. Being pear shaped with a small bust does not negate the need for me to wear a bra.

    Reply
    • Anything better to worry about? This lady represents our country and she is getting off a national aircraft and has on short shorts??? and forget about the rest of her outfit. She needs to have a little respect for this country and what she represents, forget about having some self respect, that is apparently out the window

  194. I totally agree with you. The time has come that a black family is in the White House, get over it and stop criticizing everything that they do. They didn't put this country in the mess we are in, they inherited it and are trying to fix it. Only in this country can you feel so free to talk about the president no matter what color he or she is.

  195.

    I have never seen a First Lady really dressed down until this….maybe slacks and a nice shirt, but those do look like my housecleaning clothes.
    We all know elegance is passe in this country. We no longer wear our heels and gloves when we fly so I guess this is no different.
    But even those of you who adore Michelle Obama have to admit…you cannot get any more dressed down than this. Honestly, I would not go to Walmart looking like that, but I am a grandma who is way behind the times.

  196. I am not an Obama supporter, however I will give credit where credit is due and base my opinions of a person on their decisions and character. MIichelle Obama's shorts aren't too short. She is tall and long legged. I'm short, 5 foot ,and if I had these same shorts on they would go to my knee caps. She has every right to dress casual during her vacation within reason and this outfit is reasonable.

  197. Send her Jillian Michaels Metablolism book/cd – she needs it and just because she's the first lady, doesn't mean she can show how fat she really is…cover up & put on the expensive stuff – they hide the fat much better.

  198. Am I the only one who notices the elder daughter rushes past her father leaving AF One? I have seen ts several times leaving the pople who are posed to greet the president only to have this rude child present herself. She should be taught to be polite to her father and more important she should not rush past the president.
    There is a certain image a first lady show have – these short shorts are ghetto….and she also looks sloppy.

    Reply
  199. Think back to all the first ladies ending with Jackie Kennedy – not one of them ever appeared as sloppy as this one. Let people alone and let them live? She is the person who is trying to interject herself into the eating habits of the nation – and she is the one who flipped off on a million dollar vacaton costing this government a fortune – when he tells us to hang in there do to unemploymnt or lack of mony – they are both a disaster.

  200. Amanda go back to school so you can learn proper english; after all Obama wants all us taxpayers to pay for all the freebies for all the people that won't work. As far as the way the first lady looks she cant help it if she has no class…She needed to take lessons and study all the other first ladies.Those ladies had CLASS. Michelle has how many people trying to make her look better. Laura Bush had 3 total. Gee what is wrong with this picture? If they can't handle our money what does that tell you? Funny they are multi millionaires but can't balance our budget?

    Reply
    • ok Janie…laura bush had 3 stylist and that still didnt help her look any better and she didnt have class neither did her mother-in- law . The budget problems happened when the republicans were in charge….The last time the budget was in order was when Clinton was in office. And both bushes messed up the budget. now Obama like Clinton has to sraighten things out. and it took Clinton 8 yrs. Then your last president the dumbest president in the history of the U.S., and then cheated his way into the white house to begin with, really messed things up….it is going to take Obama some time to fix what bush messed up. It amazes me how people criticize every little thing he does, and I cant help but to think its because he is black. Thank God after 8 yrs of stupidity, not to mention a war that is unneccesary, we finally have a smart man in office…that happens to be black. AMEN!!!!!

  214. She is not wearing short-shorts! Her butt or pockets are not hanging out, so why is everyone making this a huge deal? Teenage girls and sometimes even parents wear shorter shorts than these, so stop acting like she's done something wrong! Her shorts look close enough to her knees then some people's shorts… Leave her alone! Even if she was wearing too short of shorts, she's on vacation so it shouldn't matter anyways…
