First lady Michelle Obama, wearing a hat and sunglasses, made a quick dash to her neighborhood Target to pick up a few common household items. Of course there’s nothing common about Michelle Obama, who was shadowed by a Secret Service agent pretending to be a shopper (the man standing behind her). Mrs. Obama was accompanied by her personal assistant (the LSLH chick) who carried her bags and checked messages on both of Mrs. Obama’s cell phones.
First Lady communications director Kristina Schake explained, “It is not uncommon for the First Lady to slip out to run an errand, eat at a local restaurant or otherwise enjoy the city outside the White House gates.”
