I disagree. It was a mild scolding done with a smile, but it was NOT called for. Michelle is a statist control freak and she inserted her personal political philosophy into a moment that belonged to a young girl who achieved something spectacular. Michelle showed zero class or respect by using the moment to make a political point. It also seemed that Michelle was trying to horn in on the limelight for political purposes. Most politicians are crass and the Obama's have reached a level of crassness equal to the Clinton's. That's a spectacular achievement in and of itself. This would have been such a heart warming segment if Michelle, the current Bolshevik Brunhilda FLOTUS, were just not present at all.

If M.O.'s food agenda were not politically controversial it might have been just a good humored joke. Given the reality, which is that M.O., Bloomberg and others want to control what American's eat, among other things they seek to control, it was not funny. That Leno may have set it up for M.O. just shows him to be a hack leftist himself for doing it. There is nothing humorous about the level of control the Obama's and Democrat party want to have over our entire lives. Presenting it in a warm and fuzzy, 'Mother Knows Best', staged manner does not make it any less crass or authoritarian. They successfully fooled you, but not most of us.

it was a joke, you need to understand the difference between a lecture/scolding and an actual joke.....its a late night tv show, which is suppose to make people relax and laugh....not everything is about politics...

Spot on JimP5. You nailed it. That little smile don't give Queen Bee Obama a pass with me. Frown or smile she is always locked and loaded to spue her adgenda. Good post.

AMEN! They can't control themselves from inserting their opinions into ALL aspects of OUR lives. They think they are SO special! Can't wait for them to return to gangland Chi where their buddy Rahm can protect them.
Kudos to Georgetwin---he nailed it! Oink.

She was practically cued to make the remarks by Leno. You people lack a sense of humor

Gymnast Gabby Douglas, as Jay Leno mentions in the following clip, worked her entire life to become an Olympic gold medalist, but did that stop Michelle Obama from scolding Douglas on national television for eating an Egg McMuffin to celebrate? (hint: no)

 

The only medal Michelle Obama will ever see is her husband's Nobel Peace Prize, and unlike Douglas with her gold medal, Barack Obama didn't earn that.
