FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, faced is interposed on a Spanish magazine, Magazine de Fuera de Serie on a portrait done by French painter Marie-Guillemine Benoist in the early 1800's. The famed portrait was of a former slave done after the abolition of slavery. The portrait has been helmed by some as a representation of the emancipation of slavery at the time. The magazine maintains it is paying homage to a FLOTUS being a strong woman who stands by her husband. They refer to her as the "gran mujer" (great woman). Some, however, are saying that it is disrespectful, racist, and is too provacative.
Barack and Michelle Obama arrived yesterday to watch the U.S. Men's Olympic Team take on Brazil at an exhibition game to roaring cheers at the Verizon Center. The pair ended up on the Kiss Cam, which is when a couple appears on a large jumbo screen and are expected to kiss. Barack may have been clueless as he smiled for the camera, but didn't kiss Michelle. Some in the crowd were not pleased, and subsequently booed. Well, when you are POTUS, you can get a second chance, which he did. This time, he got it right.
During the 4th quarter, the pair appeared before a crowd of thousands, yet again, and Barack kissed Michelle. This time he received rousing cheers and its reported the crowd chanted Four More Years!!!! Whitehouse spokesman, Josh Earnest, says of their missing the first opportunity:
"This was the subject of some high-level conversations on the helicopter en route to Andrews Air Force base this morning." "I can tell you, based on a very good source, that reports that the president was rebuffed are false."
Earnest said the Obamas noticed that their images were on a large screen during the first half of the game and smiled, but didn't realize that "their images were on the screen in conjunction with the Kiss Cam." They didn't know about the Kiss Cam until halftime, when they first saw their daughters Malia and Sasha, who asked why they didn't kiss for the cameras.
"So during Act 2 of the Kiss Cam promotion, the president managed to steal a kiss from his wife."
Michelle Obama, our First Lady, has been threatned. An offier is alledged to have said he would shoot her and he also looked up the gun he said he would shoot her with on a phone.
The Post says that The Secret Service have been notified and the Metropolitan Police are investigating. The officer has been moved to adminstrative duty while the investigation proceeds.
The motorman allegedly made the comments Wednesday morning as several officers from the Special Operations Division discussed threats against President Obama. It was not immediately clear where the alleged conversation took place or exactly how many officers took part in the conversation.
During that conversation, the officials said, the officer allegedly said he would shoot the First Lady and then used his phone to retrieve a picture of the firearm he said he would use. It was not immediately clear what type of firearm was allegedly shown.
An officer overheard the alleged threat and reported it to a police lieutenant at the Division, who immediately notified superiors, the officials said.
