If Michelle Obama´s greige nail polish she wore during her Democratic National Convention speech was enough to spark discussion from Pulitzer prize-winning authors, then her Christmas Day polish is sure to cause fireworks. The First Lady, visiting a military base in Hawaii with President Barack Obama, celebrated December 25th in summery style, wearing a sleeveless cotton dress, sandals and a neon yellow pedicure. While she kept her hands bare, the pop of yellow on her toes was a simple way to liven up and add some colour to her black and white ensemble.
I am sure the Marines were thrilled to see her size 14 feet bare and glowing neon yellow. And thrifty her, dragging out the ugly $995 sandals she wore ONCE before. With a recycled 4th of July maternity dress.
Whatta gal. /s
(One welcome note. They´ve stopped bleaching her out in photos. He is said to have chosen her because she was very dark, to balance out his almost-whiteness. PC, dontcha know... She wore a violet coat-dress ensemble to a MMA ribbon cutting one time and it came out the palest lavender by the time they messed about with her skin tone... It´s good to be queen.)
Fashion note to Daily Mail Staff: The nail colour she wore to the convention was not greige, but Embalmer´s Blue-Gray. Anyone who knows ANYTHING about fashion knows that greige is a shade of gray beige. Not blue.
My daughter (who is mentally handicapped) said, when watching a picture of Moochella on TV, is she pregnant? If she noticed it, that lady had a problem. Either BHO and Moochie have been "doing it" or she isn´t following her healthy diet thing.
" The couple were visiting military personnel eating Christmas Dinner ..." Michelle was sporting a garment that looks just a step away from baby doll pajamas. In addition to the vulgar dragon toes and 995 dollar sandals we paid for. She was posing coquettishly next to her sheman who actually had the sense to wear shoes this time. No matter the temperature or climate , a lady of class would never visit soldiers on Christmas Day wearing a glorified bath towel.

She is a mess and a very unattractive first lady. If her daughters want to act like teenagers, let them, but she supposedly holds a dignified position in the White House. For Pete´s sake Michelle, grow up!
I will say this, she has lovely hands. I don´t like that blue/gray/dead color, but she does have a lovely pair of hands. Now, her husband on the other hand, well, he looks a wee bit dorkish in that photo from Hawaii.
TO make you feel better, many of the Brits that comment on her fashion feel exactly like we do. I see her attire this time as entirely indicative of her feelings about the event. She and her husband have no respect for those in uniform.
This "whatever she is" woman is disgusting. Grey nail polish and now neon yellow toenail polish to offset a dress that makes her look like a fool. I´m no longer surprised, just continually offended that she doesn´t make any effort to represent this country with even a modicum of taste and judgment. She looks like a cheap, homely-beyond-belief, mean and surly woman with a lantern jaw and 6" teeth who chooses deliberately to prove she can do anything she chooses.
Regardless of her skin color, ginormity, age, or intellect (or lack of), this is totally an inappropriate representation of the First Family to be seen at home and abroad during a MILITARY event.
Furthermore, I have no doubt whatsoever that the "in-your-face-sucka" attitude these two both present to the US and the world is entirely intentional. They get away with being so offensive, rude and basically hideous outwardly and internally is because they can. To object or criticize, would be racist.
On another thought, if MO dressed like normal First Ladies, she would never get headlines.
When Mohammad Hamedi Rad arrived in the United States last year, he carried his Iranian passport, a hard-won student visa and a backpack containing $14,000 in hundred dollar bills, because there was no simpler way of getting money into the country. "It was scary," Hamedi Rad, a chemical engineering graduate student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, said of his late-night arrival in Chicago, where he declared the funds to airport customs officials. "I´ve never carried that much money before. I was extremely nervous." Hamedi Rad´s experience is by no means unheard of among many of the thousands of
This spectacle had to have the white-hot spotlight, front page, bold type (whoa-oh!) — to quote one of the evening’s celebrated songwriters — because this Kennedy Center Honors gala was a talker. The night might have begun as the latest parade of cultural icons seated in an opera box with their president, but when a rapper and a Supreme Court justice take the same stage, it isn’t your standard lifetime achievement fete. (Snip) The show — hosted by actress Glenn Close — began with a resounding rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” played by Cuban jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval. Should anyone
The "Piano Man" who became one of the world´s best-selling artists of all time with such hits as "Just the Way You Are," "Uptown Girl" and "Allentown" is being awarded the nation´s highest honor Sunday for influencing American culture through the arts. Billy Joel joins Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, opera star Martina Arroyo and actress Shirley MacLaine in receiving the Kennedy Center Honors. All of them have been playing music, dancing or singing since they were children -- and have never stopped. Joel said the honor stands apart from his six Grammys. "This is different. It´s our nation´s capital," he
Couples should not have children if their relationship is not stable enough to merit getting married, a senior High Court judge said yesterday. Sir Paul Coleridge said those couples whose relationship was stable enough to cope with the rigours of child rearing should marry. But the judge, who is retiring from the bench next year after decades as a family lawyer and judge, said those who did not feel ready for children should not have them. He said couples had no right to have children, “you only have responsibilities if you have them”. Sir Paul criticised warring parents’ obsessions with
Thursday’s sad passing of world civil rights icon Nelson Mandela was a frequent topic of discussion at Friday’s White House daily briefing, as several reporters asked Press Secretary Jay Carney to elaborate on Mandela’s influence, and on details surrounding his funeral. CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta asked about “this great impact” that Mandela had on the President, while repeatedly stressing that President Obama had only met Mandela once. Acosta began with a personal observation, telling Carney that “it just sort of struck me that the President talked about this great impact that he had on his life, but
As an unrelenting wintry storm threatens to choke the Mid-Atlantic into Sunday evening, intrepid NFL players duked it out in Philadelphia amid white-out conditions. The potent system battered the South and Midwest in recent days and now, as it creeps East, it has the Eagles and visiting Detroit Lions both battling major snow. While the blizzard has professional athletes struggling to stay ahead of the weather, a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow is delivering a sloppy smorgasbord from the Mid-Atlantic through southeastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey.
The two drugs have been declared equivalently miraculous. Tested side by side in six major trials, both prevent blindness in a common old-age affliction. Biologically, they are cousins. They’re even made by the same company. But one holds a clear price advantage. Avastin costs about $50 per injection. Lucentis costs about $2,000 per injection. Doctors choose the more expensive drug more than half a million times every year, a choice that costs the Medicare program, the largest single customer, an extra $1 billion or more annually. Spending that much may make little sense for a country burdened by ever- rising health
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
