It was like a scene out of Eddie Murphy’s movie Coming To America when First Lady Michelle Obama and her entourage arrived at the swanky St. Regis Hotel in Miami today.
The streets surrounding the hotel were blocked off by motorcycle cops until the First Lady and her massive entourage entered the hotel. Mrs. Obama was escorted by at least 50 motorcade police officers, her usual Secret Service detail and additional Miami PD patrol units. Cops would not allow anyone to walk or ride their bikes on Collins Avenue until the first lady had arrived into the hotel. Cars that were forced to wait for her majesty’s arrival beeped their horns in disgust and expressed their displeasure in very vocal terms at cops.
In an exclusive interview with NBC’s TODAY, first lady Michelle Obama reacted to the shocking Cleveland, Ohio kidnapping case.
“My heart just… swells up with relief, because just imagine first losing a child and not knowing whether they’re alive or dead or in harm’s way,” Mrs. Obama said. “And to be holding out hope for a decade and to finally have those prayers answered is just probably the best Mother’s Day gift… that these families will receive.
Mrs. Obama added: “We’re just grateful that they’re safe. It is probably a parent’s worst nightmare to lose a child in any way, shape or form. But I am just happy for these families that they found their daughters and that they’re alive and safe.”
First Lady Michelle Obama took time out of her busy schedule to visit the maimed victims of last Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon.
Mrs. Obama was in town with her husband, the president, to attend an interfaith prayer service for the victims. 3 people died in the bombings and scores more were injured.
The first lady quietly visited victims in local hospitals including the same hospital where Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is currently being treated for his injuries under heavy guard.
First Lady Michelle Obama confirmed what some of us already knew; that she is a single mother raising her 2 daughters in the White House — the home she shares with her estranged husband, President Barack Obama.
First lady Michelle Obama is not surprised that the haters came for her after she made a surprise appearance at the 85th Annual Academy Awards.
Iran doesn’t play when it comes to women guarding their modesty. Some Muslim women practice the longstanding tradition of covering their bodies and hair under layers of material. Other Muslim women just cover their hair while wearing non-traditional clothing like their American sisters.
Iran’s state-run news agency was faced with a dilemma this morning when they saw the “slutty” silvery sleeveless dress that First Lady Michelle Obama wore during her surprise appearance on the Academy Awards.
The news agency digitally altered the first lady’s dress to show her wearing sleeves — and they blurred the entire image almost beyond recognition to make it hard for Iranians to tell that there are two females dressed like men standing behind her.
MSNBC NOW has more after the break.
An unnamed White House source confirms that First Lady Michelle Obama will attend the funeral of Hadiya Pendleton in place of her husband, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Mrs. Obama will attend Saturday’s funeral in Chicago for the 15-year-old shooting victim, who was slain by an unknown gunman a few days after she danced for Obama during his 2nd Inauguration in January.
Pendleton was shot once in the back as she huddled with a group of friends in a park to wait out the rain. The King College Prep honor student was slain about two blocks from the Obamas’ Chicago residence in upscale Kenwood.
