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.
