Michelle Obama Does The ‘Late Show’
March 20, 2012
It’s campaign season and for some reason that means First Lady Michelle Obama has to appear on late night television.
Last night, Michelle appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman and talked about how much fun she has trying to escape her Secret Service detail, however it doesn’t sound like she’s been successful…. yet.
“I technically could. It would drive a lot of people crazy. I’ve threatened to do it,” Obama said, discussing going to the 7-Eleven for a Slurpee. “I get my little jaunts out … I say, ‘I’m walking out that door, I’m walking out. I’m leaving!’ You see people talking into their wrists, ‘Is she kidding?’ I sneak out. We can do covert moves. I’ve been to Target, PetCo with Bo.”
Michelle’s comments have caused backlash on both sides. Democrats complain that she is putting her life at risk just for the sake of running errands at Target, while the Republicans are angry because they just found out about the Secret Service! Apparently, the Republicans don’t think their hard earned tax dollars should pay for the Secret Service details provided to the Obama family, even though this same service has been provided to all U.S. Presidents following the assassination of President William McKinley back in 1901.
Michelle Obama just can’t win.
On that note, I have to tell you that I recently met an former Secret Service agent and they were responsible for escorting Laura Bush on her shopping excursions and let’s just say she didn’t go to Target. Oh no, she went to ritzy stores and spent a ton of money. Maybe it was George’s money, maybe it wasn’t, but the point is this former agent didn’t think highly of the former First Lady.
Somehow, Michelle doesn’t look like she’d be that much trouble. Then again, having to watch someone every single day and follow them around while they live their life sounds incredibly boring. I feel bad for the Secret Service agents. Instead of trying to escape them, I’d play pranks on them, bake them goodies, and have parties to celebrate mundane accomplishments. For example, after one of my agents came out of the bathroom, I’d have a cake with candles waiting to accomplish his successful bowel movement.
You haven’t partied until you’ve had a bowel movement party… or something.
