Figures. White House Tipped Off AP Reporter Ahead of Michelle Obama’s Target Photo-Op

Another staged moment in the lives of Barack and Michelle Obama.
Michelle Obama just had to get out to Target to do a little shopping last week. But, before the shopping run the White House tipped off AP photographer Charles Dharapak so that he would be at the store to memorialize the moment.

Michelle Obama checks out at Target. That’s her assistant behind her carrying the bags. (AP)

At least she wore a shirt that is reportedly from Old Navy(?) and not a designer T-shirt like she wears out when she paints community centers.

    If she backs up isn’t she supposed to beep to warn

    The unsuspecting victims of a wide load?!

    These people have no shame.

    fake, phony, fraud

  • Buffalobob

    If she was at Walmart she would definitely be in the top ten “people of Walmart”.

  • Craig

    It doesn’t matter what she wears, she always look ugly.

  • Logic

    I know this is immaterial, but why does she have the assistant carry the bags while she pushes an empty cart?

  • MrGoodWench

    What ?
    No $ 700 shoes ?

    Rush had fun with this. He noted that she had a bottle of Lysol.

    They failed to tell MoochL in her pre-shopping training that bags of groceries go INTO the cart, which is then pushed up to the car where upon the said bags are transferred to the car 😀

    This is so pathetic I feel ashamed FOR them. Michelle, thought to be last seen on that grainy video in the forest, thought it’d be a great idea if she pretended to be one of the ‘common folk’ after she was busted wearing a $40k bracelet the other day she bought with her daily stipend.

    Can you IMAGINE calling up photographers to document your daring venture into a Target? Why was she wearing a disguise? LOL


  • Gride

    Who do they think they are fooling with this? Do they really think everyone is going to all of a sudden think Michelle “wookie” Obama is just a humble person who shops at target like the rest of middle America?

    lol… I was asking myself the same question.

    I don’t know if I should laugh or burst out crying in sheer helplessness. We are stuck with these ignoramuses. But never again, I pray.

    Don’t she have handlers that could say that is not a good idea? Maybe that she treats them like “I know better than you …”, they just let her go and make a fool of herself and of course those of us who respect our America and it’s leaders.

    Hmm… let me see, where have I seen this ruse done before?

    Now I remember! In the movie Soap Dish, whenever Sally Field’s character, Celeste Talbert, needed an emotional boost, she’d head to the mall where she’d be “recognized’ by her able assistant, played by Whoopie Goldberg. A “surprised’ Celeste would then be flocked by her adoring fans and compelled to sign autographs.

    Since Michelle has been under such fire lately for the expensive bling, outfits, and vacations, maybe the administration’s PR department figured it was time to show her out mingling with the little people. Funny I didn’t see the throngs of adoring fans, however.

    How very gouche of the little people to not want to bask in her glory, even though she’s the First Lady of the United States, not some aging soap actress hoping to recapture the glory of her past. I’m surprised the White House didn’t furnish their own rented mob of ‘adoring” fans for the photo op.

    “They love me… they really, really love ME!” – Celeste Talbert

    America is “just downright mean!” – Michelle Obama

  • Billy Barty

    wow. I just went to the first link above, and I’m speechless. Read some of the comments.

    They are, without irony or anything, saying things like “Michelle defines class!”, and “She’s our best first lady ever!”, and “She really is one of us!”

    NO JOKE. I may just drown myself in the toilet

  • Patty

    Shameful, disgusting, repulsive, ignorant, anyone have anything else to add, have at it.

    This truly is one of the most despicable acts of condensation and ridicule to us.

    Why not just give us the finger.

    Such a truly disgraceful first lady.

  • Patty

    The two of the Obama’s are playing us people. They have advisers who are telling them to be more like regular folk. Campaign season has just hit a new low. And to thing those who are so ignorant to say she is just great. love, her…BARFING NOW, BYE.

  • Patty


    RIGHT ON! EXACTLY. And they need to be out of our White House, Today. But we can only pray that November is a Slam Dunk for America and those two are official gone.

  • Patty

    Who was boycotting Target a while back, oh, yes wasn’t it gays and lesbians?

  • Patty

    Look out Target, you have been served your first Downgrade.
