Yesterday, self-appointed health and fitness expert Moochelle Obama piled her huge rear end into her government-supplied private jet to come to back to where it all started, Chicago, to stage a photo op with her husband’s chief of staff turned mayor, Rahm Emanuel, about those dreaded “food deserts.”
Lynn Sweet, who may or may not still wish she could follow Barack Obama into the men’s locker room at the East Bank Club, writes:
Mayor Emanuel Announces Three Dozen New and Expanded Grocery Stores in Communities Across Chicago, Creating More Than 2000 Jobs and Reducing “Food Desert” Acreage in Low-Income Communities by 20%
Also announces agreement between local growers and grocery stores to buy and sell produce in local stores; new farmers markets in neighborhoods that lack them
Today Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined First Lady Michelle Obama and executives from major grocery chains across the country to announce plans to open 36 new grocery stores in communities across Chicago: 17 traditional grocery stores and 19 expanded Walgreens Co. stores that include fresh food. The majority of the stores will be located in communities with food deserts, as part of the Administration’s ongoing commitment to expand access to fresh and healthy foods across in the city.
Had I been there, I would have pointed out that these “food deserts,” are low-income, high-crime, minority communities, areas dominated by illegitimacy, welfare dependency, gang activity and all the related social pathologies that exploded as a result of the liberal policies that Moochelle and the rest of the Alinskyites running Chicago on the Potomac want to take from urban areas and spread like a cancer across the rest of the country.
Or maybe I would have just said, “Michelle, butt out,” a phrase that she is uniquely qualified to understand, and one that is particularly appropriate, given this woman’s blatant and nauseating hypocrisy on this issue. Not only is her appetite for french fries, ribs, ice cream, and other high-calorie, high-fat foods legendary and well-documented (just ask Paula Dean), on the very day she was masquerading as a fitness and nutrition expert (again), her husband, on the Left Coast, for another $38,500-a-plate fundraiser, was indulging in some of the yummy treats that she scolds the little people for enjoying:
President Obama met with celebrities in Hancock Park on Monday night arriving at LAX from Las Vegas in the afternoon. He went to Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles in Hollywood (see photos). He was joined at the counter by Rep. Karen Bass, D-Los Angeles, where he ordered for himself and severalaides. Obama’s order included the No. 9 — the “Country Boy” — which
consists of three wings, with the choice of waffle, potato salad and French
I wonder which type of fries Barack had. Perhaps Michelle can report back to us.
It is stunning to me, and I expect to many others with functioning eyes and functioning brains that anyone can admire the phony, self-absorbed, seething cauldron of race-obsession and rage that is Michelle Obama.
