Michelle Obama Tells African Audience, “I Love French Fries… But Eat Your Vegetables

Yes we can.

You’ve gotta love it…
Michelle Obama told an audience in South Africa that she absolutely loves french fries… But, eat your vegetables.
The Examiner reported:

…At the end of the session, one young person in the audience asked Mrs. Obama, who has devoted much of her time in the White House to promoting nutrition and healthy eating, what her favorite foods are.

“My favorite?” Obama said. “Oh, this is a tough one. “It is tough, you know, because if I say something not healthy, people will be, like, you aren’t really committed to health. If I say something healthy, you know — I do — honestly, I like all kinds of foods.”

Obama mentioned Indian food, and then Mexican food, and then said: “No, if I picked one favorite, favorite food, it’s French fries.” The audience began to laugh. “Okay? It’s French fries,” Obama continued. “I can’t stop eating them.” As the students laughed more, the First Lady quickly returned to her role as advocate of health eating. “But eat your vegetables,” she said, to still more laughs. “And exercise.”

    “It is tough, you know, because if I say something not healthy, people will be, like, you aren’t really committed to health.”

    So I’m, like, ‘did I have to pay for you to take the family to Africa to you could, like, tell them this?’.

  • I just posted a new MyPlate diagram to reflect Michelle’s french fry love: http://bit.ly/mOh3i2

  • cal rifkin

    …the attitudinal superiority of these lib mofos is unending…why can’t they mind their own effin bidness.

  • Waiting for all the Liberals who criticized Nancy Reagan for Just Say No, or the Bush’s Abstinence program, to all post their stunning wit.


  • patman

    I thought it was lobster Moochelle.

    Do they even serve french fries at all the posh 5-star resorts you stay at?

  • Gothguy

    Oh, she’s a smart one, isn’t she??

    F*ck, when will this national nightmare be over???

  • chocolate jesus

    Her husband smokes cigarettes. I suggest she shut her f**king (ehehehehehe) Pie Hole until she looses her caboose and gets Ear Leader to stop with the cancer sticks.

  • chocolate jesus

    Maybe they could fix her ugly crooked teeth so she wouldn’t talk like Mush Mouth.

  • No wonder hear rear-end looks like the back of a bus

  • SeniorD

    Government approved food for thee, but not for me.

    What a wast of oxygen!

  • haw haw RR, that is exactly what I thought! This fat a&& woman is one to lecture others about healthy eating? give me a F&kg break already… 2013 can’t come soon enought

    …. LET THEM EAT FRIES …. !!!!!!

  • Max

    (Pssst… french fries… potatoes… ARE vegetables. Probably even the oil they are cooked in too. OK, OK, I know she meant GREEN vegetables)

  • succotash

    What the he!! is with that face at the end? Snuffleuffulus! Gaaaah she’d scare the peas out of pod.

  • When is someone going to pipe up with “Hey, why don’t you butt out of my food choices?” Or do they screen her audiences that heavily?

  • dwd

    When someone prefaces something with “honestly”, it implies that they aren’t always honest. Are they being honest this time because they said so? Or are they lying and saying “honestly” to support the lie?

    I love fries, but eat your veggies… gotta love that “messaging”.


    Oh STFU you fat freakin cow…how many vacations are WE going to pay for your lame A$$ family…think about the “small” people who your mooslum husband said would have to “have a little skin in the game” and make sacrifices…you hyprocrit….what good did your A$$ do in S Africa by the way?????

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    Those aren’t Africans. Rather, they are affectionately referred to by Michele as “her people”. Btw, they’re all from “Barack’s homeland”.

  • succotash

    The liberal rags call her a fashion icon and so intelligent ……like really? Her wighat is not looking too good either.

  • Bunni

    Fat ass hypocrite. Why doesn’t she STFU and quit badgering everyone with her commie food police crap. I can’t stand this hag, more each day.

  • FurryGuyJeans

    “Your french fries are belong to us.”

    What a frapping hypocrite Moochelle is.

  • Pretty bold stuff when too many kids in South Africa eat no more than one meal a day, often with no vegetables or meat.

    WHAT justification is there for US taxpayers to pay for this junket? She got her extended family pod riding on the freebie again?

  • My first job was working with severely malnourished children in Kenya (I’m sorry! I never never never never would have guessed this would somehow someday actually be relevent to anything)
    but, here’s a little tidbit we all learned: the African cultural tradition of compliments includes the opposite of American traditions: to whit:

    American: “Oh! You look so THIN!”
    “Thank you!”

    AFricans: “Oh! You look FAT!”
    “Thank you!!”

    I am NOT making this up. THIN in Africa= FAMINE and POVERTY. It is NOT a compliment.

    I saw an American compliment an African that she looked so nice, so THIN. The African woman actually started with horror and looked like she’d been slapped.

    Also watched an African politician try to cover up the fact he’d forgotten he’d met an American woman before, so she reminded him. Being a true political guy, he tried to smooth it over by saying, “I didn’t recognize you. … ah ah. You look FAT!”
    She literally almost hit him and the poor man had no idea what he’d done.

    All Peace Corps Volunteers know that the fat girl volunteers arrive in Africa and are suddenly the belles of the ball.

    Now that ya’ll are aware of this, go back and listen and consider how well Michelle’s Obama’s Chicago-Centric comments went over.

  • Yes, they actually do say, “Oh! You look so FAT!”

  • Betsy Ross

    I don’t mind that the FLOTUS loves french fries.
    What I do mind is her sticking her nose into what everyone else should eat.
    And what I really, really mind is that she wants to legislate what restaurants serve, what kids can’t bring to school to eat, etc.
    So, eat your french fries, lady, and my kid is going to bring candy to school with a bottle of sugar pop to wash it down with, ‘kay?

  • tru

    Thanks to her husband all we can afford to go out and eat are fries off the doller menu at McD’s.

  • CommieJuice

    Just as brilliant and commie red as her single term only husband.

  • Will someone wire that knuckle dragging Yetti’s trap shut!?

    If your back side didn’t look like two Volkswagon Beetles maybe you would be taken seriously.

  • Truth Teller

    So that’s where Chewbacca got her fat ass….

  • Yikes

    She’s BaaaaAck! Mooch is off her meds again. Sounds like Angry Michelle (proud for first time) is Back! Yay! Anyone else think this gal is seriously skating on the straight edge?

  • Alana

    She seriously doesn’t KNOW potatoes are vegetables. They’ve been waging a war on potatoes in the schools, making a rule that you can only serve them one a week; and in WIC, with a rule that mothers on WIC can’t use the money to buy potatoes. (Not even sacks of potatoes.)

    (I don’t know what has happened with that WIC one. Last I heard, it was sitting in some kind of test 6-month mode or something.)

    But from everything Michelle has said, I am telling you, she does not realize potatoes are vegetables.

  • Andreas K.

    Sod off Michelle. South Africa has its own share of professional liars and idiots, aka politicians. They don’t need you. Go back to America.

    Seriously, this woman makes me want to break out a “Yankee go home!” sign.

  • jorgen

    We can see that she loves french fries and doesn’t like exercising. Best would be if she just STFU.

  • Linda

    Actually in Africa, they have damn good french fries/potato chips made from cassava root I believe and it is called “mogo” (at least in Uganda). Try some you’ll like them and they are better than many brands of frozen fries and chips from potatoes (more work to make though than using potatoes). Mrs. O should have given an answer on food that she liked related to corn and/or “mogo” which are two staples in the African diet her audience would have identified with more??

  • chicago

    it’s the same old “do as I say, not as I do” mantra from Michele “gimme my rack of ribs” flotus! you all eat your veggies while we feast on lobster at the waldorf!

  • JohnnyAmerica

    I’ve got news for ya Moochelle, ain’t just French Fries you like, you lard butt.

  • sablegsd

    STFU, you fugly assed beard. Your ass is 16 axe handles wide and your youngest kid is turning into a frakkin sausage. SHUT UP! Quit sticking your affirmative like, action nose where it’s, like not wanted. Stop wasting taxpayer money on your personal, like, vacations, you b!tch.

    When are you going to tell us why you and zero lost your law licenses, you frakkin tnuc.
