She wouldn't be caught dead in a Walmart


Figures. White House Tipped Off AP Reporter Ahead of Michelle Obama’s Target Photo-Op

Another staged moment in the lives of Barack and Michelle Obama.
Michelle Obama just had to get out to Target to do a little shopping last week. But, before the shopping run the White House tipped off AP photographer Charles Dharapak so that he would be at the store to memorialize the moment.


What I want to know is what she was buying. Michelle wasn’t picking up some toilet paper for the White House and she wears designer clothes.

Was she picking up some gifts for visiting heads of state? Birthday presents for Cabinet members?

What do you think?

    According to the latest stories she was buying dog food for Bo (FDOTUS)

    But that doesn’t look like Purina Dog Chow in those bags.

      Maybe she needed sanitary napkins in a hurry.

        Prep H. She did not want to send an aid out for it.

        There’s a CVS around the corner from the WH, one doesn’t drive from the District with an entourage to Alexandria for anything “in a hurry” 😉 😉

        She also needs to discover the joy of online shopping. I haven’t been to a Mall or big box store in years. And the retail therapy is just as much fun. In my pajamas and without “boob makeup” (yes, the “girls” are definitely defined in that photo)

    I guess she was buying what I buy at Target, toilet paper.

  3. Mimi says:

    Dog food, pop tarts, box wine, Halloween candy to eat before Halloween, shot glasses. Just the stuff everyone buys at Target I am sure.

  4. this would be an idiotic stunt even for the obama’s! was it really her?

    • Mary says:

      You’ll be pleased to know that she left her $500 tennis shoes and her $42,000 diamond bracelet at home.

      Wouldn’t fit in with the desired meme, ya know?

    I read this article about an OFC in China, and I thought what great article MYIQ2XU could write about it and just how much fun could be had.

    Didn’t Soros just buy a lot of Target stock. I guess it is payback for the obama owner.

    This follows tradition. Marie Antoinette used to amuse herself by pretending to be a shepherdess in her own private hamlet within Versailles.

    Enlarge photo and see that Michelle wears lipstick that matches Target. Maybe she is buying her fave shade.

    Mwwuahhh from Michelle.

    Al Gore loses his website to Russia. Does this make Russia more green than Al Gore?

    Maybe she is buying obama’s jeans. I’m not sure where they make those “dad jeans”…

    I think it is an ‘in your face’ moment from Michelle to everybody. That’s definitely a simulated island type outfit she has chosen for the event – nothing like it has shown up in VA stores before. 😉
    Perhaps she’s given photographer, hubby, whoever told her she needed to do a simple folk moment, and the simple folk themselves … the bird.

  17. PamelaofthePoconos says:

    No problemo.

    Sorry – I did not realize I’d left Uppities. Shame on me.
