Michelle Obama has a
very neon Christmas with
highlighter yellow pedicure
in Hawaii

Daily Mail (UK), by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/27/2012 6:44:18 PM

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.

Looks like a toe nail fungus to me.
Has anyone told her she is not 14 years old any longer?

It would almost be worth giving up the internet (I don´t watch TV) just to be assured that I won´t suddenly see this woman. I don´t think I can take it much more.

She is definitely one of the classless President´s wife in the history of this once great nation.

We are now a banana republic.

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.

Re #26, she was dressed inappropriately to make a Christmas visit to the military with her husband, the president of the United States.

Her outfit would have been fine for a patio party. It was not appropriate for that event.

But there is some truth to the different styles of dressing. A visit to her fan sites will reveal that the use of the word "appropriateness" is anathem to those who hang out there.

That said I have known a number of black women who were always dressed appropriately for the occasion, well turned out, well-coiffed, impeccable. In the public sector, Condi Rice comes to mind.

#17, it´s a baby doll DRESS. Quite the height of fashion when I was in junior high in about 1965. I had two of them, one completely white.

And I have never seen a grown Black woman wear a baby doll dress for ANY occasion, until now.

My first thought, too, was that she looked pregnant - a common look for her.

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.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

One day after making an audio appearance on RT to ask Vladimir Putin about Russian surveillance operations, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden authored a Guardian column to clarify his intentions behind the question and push back on critics who suggest he was attempting to help whitewash the Russian president’s abuses. “Does Russia intercept, analyse or store millions of individuals’ communications?” Snowden asked Putin on Thursday, garnering a denial from Putin that included the statement: “We don’t have mass system of such interception. And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

Police say a high school vice principal who had been rescued from a sinking South Korean ferry has been found hanging from a tree. The news of the death came Friday as rescuers scrambled to find hundreds of people still missing from the ferry and feared dead. The passengers included 325 second-year students from Danwon High School heading to a southern island on a four-day trip. The school vice principal found hanging Friday was identified as Kang Min-kyu, the lead guide for the school trip. No suicide note was found near the site, but Yonhap news agency reported that Kang

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff.

The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

The woman, who introduced herself as Nova, got emotional as she told Clinton and the other people in attendance that she was an undocumented immigrant. Struggling through tears, she continued, “I want to say that it’s been extremely difficult for me

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
