What happened when Michelle Obama ventured to the Kids Choice Awards

posted at 3:50 pm on April 2, 2012 by Tina Korbe

Taylor Swift “freaked out” and green goo gushed … when Michelle Obama ventured to the Kids Choice Awards:

Michelle Obama got more than she’d bargained for when she turned up at last night’s Kids’ Choice Awards.

But perhaps it should have been no surprise when she was splattered with slime at the conclusion of Hollywood’s zaniest awards show.

Drenching celebrities with green goo is a hallowed tradition at the KCAs, and the First Lady was lucky not to be directly in the firing line.

But sitting close to the stage at the awards, she did pick up a bit of slime when Will Smith and Justin Bieber were caught in the gooey crosshairs.

Mrs Obama, who attended the awards with her daughters Sasha and Malia, seemed to take the mess in good humour, laughing along with the raucous crowd and even dancing in her seat.

Perhaps it seems to you that this is just silly, but don’t diminish the savvy this displays. The KCAs are one of the most-watched children’s programs on Nickelodeon. Michelle Obama, out with her daughters for a laugh-filled evening, is a relatable Michelle Obama. Her attire might not have been the classiest she could have chosen, but her bright eyes and big smile hint at why she’s enormously popular. Don’t forget: Michelle Obama has the highest approval rating of any woman vying to occupy the White House from 2012 to 2016 — and the women are more popular than the men.

For the most part, Mrs. Obama has played the part of First Lady well, and the First Family is an asset for Barack Obama on the campaign trail. Why else would he bring them into conversation so frequently? Then again, it could be that it comes naturally to him, as it does for many parents — but, if they were a liability, you can be sure he wouldn’t mention ‘em. What’s important to recognize here is that Barack, who has been so blessed by the support of his family, still doesn’t realize that his policies, so many of which seek to substitute the state for the family, weaken others’ chances to have what he has. Perhaps it’s time for Barack to do a little “soul-searching,” as he recently advised us to do.

Does that mean they still haven’t filled the position at the hospital when she left?

They eliminated the position the day after she left.

Yeah, and you would think that plastic would be immune to that sort of thing.

Did you notice how Ken had to inject the size of his manhood into the debate?

He said that the English should stay away from the kitchen because one should never serve a Shiraz with shrimp, but I never said anything about crustaceans. I said that Hanibella Lector, the only woman that will hit on his date blog, will throw KEN on the barbie.

Obviously, he doesn’t do puns.

HeII of an outfit right there, Good looking lady to boot. I’m not the least bit surprised someone slimed that. Hope it was protected.

Thats one way I could make the comment. Lets try another;

Who in their right mind would slime that? I mean look at it. Poor thing has probably never been slimed.

Or maybe go this way, some of you old timers please correct me if I use the wrong commenters name here. I’m just new enough to know a little of the reputation, but still not quite sure of the name.

lorien would hit that…..

Nickelodeon has been in the tank for “Team Obama” since he was initially running for office. Anybody remember the “Yes We Can” song that they crammed down kids throats back in 2008?

I can’t wait til cable and satellite companies are forced due to streaming competition, to offer channels on an ‘a la carte’ basis, so I can drop all the garbage liberal stations like Nick, E, and MTV, just to name a few..

My last comment on this thread.

Michelle Obama, you or your 53 assistants likely read these threads.

Please don’t disappoint ALL (not just Black) American women with your poor fashion choices. Remember, you are supposed to be ours… We want you to look better, more elegant, more tasteful and classy than anyone else in the world.

Choose elegance. Choose style. Choose class. Choose outfits that fit you well, color schemes that fit your tone; shoes and purses to fit the occasions and please choose your outfits to fit the occasion and the phase in your time in office.

Fire your stylists. They are sabotaging you.

I worked with Jackie Onassis my first job in publishing. She was a classy, impeccable dresser every single day of her life. Head to toe.

Michelle Obama is no Jackie O. Moose’s outfits are the clown car at the end of the anti-Christ Obama circus. It couldn’t be more fitting as a final insult.

I know this must have been said many times here, but I have to say it again. I cannot believe she appeared at a Children’s award show in that spandex outfit. It’s an appropriate outfit for Beyonce or Rhianna to wear to the Grammys, but the First Lady of the U.S.??? HuffPo ran its best and worst outfits at the Country Music Awards and one of their worst was a black spandex tuxedo type outfit that was far more appropriate than Mrs. Obama’s

xkaydet65 on April 2, 2012 at 10:11 PM

Tina, Tina, Tina…..

I wonder about you. can you possibly be this naive and stupid?

First of all, Michelle Obama resisted coming to Washington DC and fulfilling the responsibilities that American voters had entrusted to her. She wanted to stay in her comfort zone in Chicago — credentialed African-Americans and guilty liberal whites. we learn this from the book on the obama marriage that came out recently.

For the first 3 or 4 months of Obama’s Presidency, Michelle complained publicly– often in speeches to children and young people — that she was not being paid as First Lady.

Hard to blame her — what good is a no-show job if you don’t get paid big bucks? In all her previous no-show jobs she earned a big salary while doing nothing.

She is the only First Lady in our history to demand a salary. Even Hillary Clinton never tried that. Historic!

As to her fashion sense — this is the worst outfit she has ever worn. And that’s saying something.

She is burdened with a problem known as “camel toe” which is visible in numerous pictures of her in tight pants (for the fashion-challenged, it means the crease in one’s vulva is outlined clearly). We are spared the rear view in photos of this outfit, but the tight pants and skirts she wears normally show the crack between her very large buttocks as well.

To complete the picture, her very very teeny tiny titties are usually sagging as they are here, down around what would be her navel if she could find it in the fat. And, her paunch prevents the tunic from closing as it should. Add in the back fat (hereditary) and the thunder thighs and it’s not a pretty picture.

Not what I expect from the first Lady of our great country.

str8tface on April 2, 2012 at 10:29 PM

Moochelle and the way she dresses is a disgrace to this country.

Another picture of Moochelle a couple of years ago that was not well circulated showed her slumped in a chair with her legs spread so wide that anyone could see way up her dress. It was vulgar. People that do such things have no morals.

Even Hillary Clinton, as bad as she was as First Lady, knew how to dress and sit decently.

sherrimae on April 2, 2012 at 11:18 PM

Not quite sure how to say this. I’m not real politically savvy as some of you here at HotAir are. I come here to be informed and usually, reading your comments confirms my impressions of the articles I read. I admire your smarts and bow to your political prowess and witty remarks.

As a woman, I find a lot of the comments here as loutish, offensive and … well, beneath you. Is this how you want the world to see conservatives? Would you speak like this about your wives, girlfriends and daughters? I bet that most of you have wives that don’t have perfect female bodies.

I’m no liberal, just a woman.

fullogas on April 3, 2012 at 1:24 AM

Sure. I can see your point. There’s a lot of cranky comments.

But she’s earned them. Sorry. She has more money than a lot of us will see and that’s not going to end with these grifters doing the rounds after they’re not in the WH. We’re not expecting her to be a fashion plate or spend outrageous amounts of money, but to lend some dignity to the office and that means wearing appropriate clothing. If most of us can manage going to work not looking like we’ve joined the circus or just got out of bed, THE FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES can too.

From what I gather, she doesn’t have to spend a lot. Some nice tailored outfits and if she must go designer, she could probably get them cheap or even gratis considering it’s advertising for the designer. If she had any taste or sense whatsoever she would have found an upcoming American designer or any US designers and made a deal. Consider how well that would have went over. Cheap or free clothes and help advance US designers. Even go a step further and auction for charity afterwards.

But no, she has to dress like this. With all the advantages she has and this is what she deems appropriate?

She’s earned every nasty comment.

In some ways it’s sad, though. No one cares enough about her or is so terrified of her that they just can’t say “that just doesn’t work”. So she wanders out looking for the clown car.

Michelle needs to read this book, desperately.

But the fact that she does dress like this only solidifies my opinion that this is the way she shows her contempt for her position and for the country. All those idiotic get-togethers she has had in the White House confirms the same thing.
