Did You See Beyoncé and Michelle Obama Inciting Sexism on Easter Sunday?

blue-ivy-beyonce-white-house-easter-egg-roll-ftrOriginally posted at CLASH Daily

This year, in honor of Easter, Obama and Michelle hosted the 138th Annual Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn of the Whitehouse. The 35,000-person “Let’s Celebrate!” event had nothing to do with Easter, nor did it have anything to do “egg rolls”.

Nevertheless, the annual festivities, which are secular in nature, feature varied activities and including things like commemorative eggs with Obama’s name inscribed on them, and a story time where the president traditionally reads from Maurice Sendak’s book Where the Wild Things Are.

This year, about a week after ISIS killed 35 people at a Brussels International Airport, Obama, who seemed somewhat complacent after the bombing when it happened, sent a belated scary message to ISIS by acting out Sendak’s book complete with growls and creepy faces.

And although Broadway star Idina Menzel, singer Daya and Echosmith were on hand to entertain the children, the highlight of the day occurred when superstar Beyoncé, her billionaire husband Jay-Z, and their curly-top tot, 4-year-old Blue Ivy, surprised good friends Michelle and Barry by dropping in at the egg roll unannounced.

This winter, during a controversial Super Bowl half-time show live performance, Beyoncé dressed up in Black Panther leather, exalted Black Lives Matter, racial militancy, and Malcolm X formations.

But now it’s springtime, the bunnies are hopping and Barack and Michelle have just returned from their South America Spring Break trip. So, instead of skimpy black leather, Beyoncé showed up at the White House, dressed in a $3,510 Marco de Vincenzo white lace, see-through skirt, and a cream and pink top that accentuated her ample bosom.

Let’s just say Beyoncé’s White House Egg Roll get-up wasn’t exactly an Easter outfit in the traditional sense of the term.

What happened? Didn’t Mrs. Carter hear Michelle’s speech to schoolgirls in Argentina where she talked about being whistled at by sexist men who make women feel as if their bodies have more value than their minds?

Or could it be that Beyoncé likes being half naked because she enjoys being whistled at by men and agrees that her body is more valuable than her mind?

If Beyoncé had been in the audience during Michelle’s Buenos Aires speech would the pop star have even understood what the first lady was talking about when she said:

As I got older, I found that men would whistle at me as I walked down the street, as if my body were their property, as if I were an object to be commented on instead of a full human being with thoughts and feelings of my own. I began to realize that the hopes I had for myself were in conflict with the messages I was receiving from people around me.

Hate to throw a wrench into the Mrs. Obama’s “Let Girls Learn” sexism spiel, but, by flaunting her voluptuous curves for attention, Beyoncé, whom Michelle considers a very good friend, makes a living rejecting all of the FLOTUS’s advice.

Michelle Obama told the Argentinian girls that, as a woman, she wants to be recognized for her intellect. Yet at home, Mrs. Obama idolizes Beyoncé who, onstage and off, shows up everywhere, including an Easter Egg Roll, in see-through, skin-tight clothes.

When not busy rolling hardboiled eggs on the White House lawn or doing the Whip/Nae Nae, has Michelle ever broached the topic of modesty with the woman who shocked the world when she showed up at last year’s MET Costume Institute Benefit wearing a transparent body stocking?

Probably not!

That’s why, based on what Beyoncé doesn’t wear, the pop diva has made it clear that Michelle Obama may talk a good talk when morally chastising men, but in her private life the first lady befriends a woman recognized for something other than her intellect.

BEYONCE’S $345K SHOES: Obama’s BFF Shows Us the Duplicity of the Liberal Elite Read

image1Originally posted at CLASH Daily

For almost seven years now, those who are either unemployed or struggling to make ends meet have endured listening to Barack Obama imply that, as a group, Americans need to share more. As for the rich, or “life’s lottery winners,” as the president likes to call them, those people – while not “evil” per se – “pretty much have more than [they’ll] ever use and [their] family will ever use.”

So, based on what he says concerning everyone other than himself, the president is clearly of the belief that “at a certain point you’ve made enough money,” and apparently feels qualified to be the one who decides how much money is too much money.

That type of thinking is indicative of totalitarian regimes where the useful eaters, otherwise known as those who contribute, are transformed into robotic drones who live only to work and supply an elite, handpicked upper class with the funds they need to live like kings and queens. Meanwhile, the “state holds total control over the society and… wherever possible… seeks to control all aspects of public and private life.”

For example, although he doesn’t want anyone else doing it, Obama has no problem living like a king off the sweat of the proletariat.

The president’s wife Michelle wears mind-blowingly expensive haute couture, and the family has spent approximately $50 million jet-setting all over the world on the taxpayers’ dime. Although he plans to desegregate America’s neighborhoods, the president vacations in the tony white enclave of Martha’s Vineyard, golfs in mostly-white Palm Springs, and when kicking back at home, has his personal chef grill up some Wagyu beef at $100 per pound.

So, the guy who thinks some of us have “made enough money” pretty much exempts himself from the “made enough money” category and lives a more opulent lifestyle than the hedge-fund managers he publicly criticizes.

Moreover, what is also clear is that Barack Obama also makes those sorts of exceptions for his small circle of exceedingly wealthy friends, one of whom is pop star/diva Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.

While Obama lectures everyday Americans that “spreading the wealth around” is better for everyone, Beyoncé, his good friend and supporter of policies that demonize the rich, shamelessly exhibits a life of gaudy self-indulgence.

Recently, Queen Bey purchased for herself a $345,000 pair of gold-encrusted shoes to wear in an upcoming music video that is due out in the fall.

If my math is correct, the pop star paid about $173,000 per shoe.

Amazingly, there hasn’t been one peep from Barack Obama about how Queen B’s half-million-dollar decadence would be better applied to things like caring for sick veterans on waiting lists at VA hospitals, feeding starving children, or “keeping some of the brothers” in Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative.

Double standards aside, Beyoncé, who believes “poverty is sexist”, hopes to inspire music video fantasies by employing a pair of sexy shoes that the House of Borgezie owner Chris Shellis calls “the crown jewels of stilettos.” The Borgezie website also describes the sky-high heels as “Possibly the eighth wonder of the world”:

The Princess Constellation is a fully diamond set version of the Contessa Stiletto considered one ofH’s finest creations. The Princess Constellation is incrusted (sic) with 1,310 diamonds resulting in a massive diamond weight 65.50 carrats (sic), all set in to (sic) a choice of platinum or 18ct gold.

Barack Obama continually laments that the bottom segment of society receives a smaller percentage of wealth and blames capitalism for more of the nation’s wealth settling at the top. Yet, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t free-market capitalism the vehicle that made Beyoncé Giselle a multimillionaire?

Maybe Obama, who criticizes Republicans for being the “party of billionaires”, is setting Beyoncé up and will solidify his commitment to “sharing the wealth” by suggesting that instead of indulging her size 8.5 hoofs, Bey sell her $345,000 shoes and contribute the profits to the bottom segment of a society that he claims receives a smaller percentage of the nation’s wealth.

Meanwhile, as the president wags his finger at rich people for doing things like “ignoring poverty by sending their children to private schools” (the kind his daughters attend), Beyoncé, who also purchased an $85,000 gold belt from Britain’s House of Borgezie to match her shoes, gets a big fat liberal-elite pass.

Nonetheless, Shellis crows, “If you want someone to model your creations, you can’t get any better than Beyoncé.” After all, who other than “life’s lottery winner” Beyoncé could get away with announcing she’ll be headlining a global anti-poverty concert, and then spend almost a half-million dollars on a belt and shoes?

But why stop at Beyoncé? When it comes to modeling the double standard of the liberal elite, “you can’t get any better” than Barack Obama, who scorns the wealthy and then overlooks a good friend strutting around in a music video wearing $345,000 diamond-encrusted shoes.

GRAMMY AWARDS 2015: Grannies, Gays and God’s Grace

beyonce_perfOriginally posted at CLASH Daily

If you’re a hedonist, this year’s Grammy Award show rocked! For starters, last year Madonna, dressed like a cowboy, officiated a gay wedding; she showed up this year wearing a Granny-ass hammock and not much else.

An aging Angus Young in his traditional schoolboy outfit helped open the worship service with AC/DC’s very fitting “Highway to Hell” anthem. Then, not to be outdone, Hozier and an embarrassingly enthusiastic Annie Lenox, before segueing into “I Put a Spell on You,” sang the disturbing ode to gay sex, “Take Me to Church.”

When the Sovereign Queen Beyoncé won a Grammy for her song “Drunk in Love”, which features the lyrics “I’ve been drinking, get filthy when that liquor get into me,” and “Last thing I remember is our beautiful bodies grinding up in the club,” she thanked God in her acceptance speech.

Sam “Stay With Me” Smith, the openly gay Brit and Boy George of 2015, ruled the night, winning four Grammys. Accepting the record of the year trophy, Sam said “I want to thank the man who this record is about, who I fell in love with last year. Thank you so much for breaking my heart because you got me four Grammys.” Then he sang with Mary K. Blige.

Don’t get me wrong, there were some not-too-objectionable things going on, such as Kanye and Kim dressed in Jean Paul Gaultier on the red carpet, discussing West’s Yeezy Boost sneakers. Kanye promised that, at $300 a pop, the footwear would address classism.

L.L. Cool J hosted, and there was the high-spirited exhibitionist Taylor Swift dancing with such obnoxious abandon it’s easy to understand why the girl has trouble getting a date.

John Legend and his irritating wife model Chrissy Teigen, who admitted on the red carpet that they once had sex at an Obama event, were mouthing the lyrics to songs they clearly didn’t know.

Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine did an elegant duet, and the always “Happy” Mr. Pharrell Williams and his canary yellow sneakers livened up the show.

The singer-songwriter, rapper, record producer, and fashion designer seems like a nice enough guy. But when did Pharrell, who seems happily unaware that, thanks to Barack Obama, most of America is unhappy, trade his signature Royal Canadian Mounties hat for shorts?

Speaking of #‎ItsonBarackObama, he appeared via video to give a public service message to America about rape and domestic abuse with his #‎Itsonus‬ campaign. Barack’s the guy who’s fine with women being genitally mutilated, married off at nine years-old, beheaded, shot, burned, stoned, and above all aborted – just don’t hit ’em! Not to mention his being unperturbed about the looming prospect of Iran acquiring a nuke and blowing the state of Israel off the map.

Dressed in white, pastor’s daughter Katy Perry backed her hero up. Katy, the girl who was wearing devil’s horns and flashing the satanic salute during AC/DC’s performance, sang “By the Grace of God,” a ballad supposedly about domestic violence.

And all this took place as the violent, misogynist ode to sadomasochistic sex, “50 Shades of Grey,” is about to hit the big screen. The movie’s soundtrack includes songs by Beyoncé, Annie Lennox, and Sia in a ginormous white wig, all of whom were featured at the same Grammy Awards show that spent an inordinate amount of energy denouncing violence against women.

Disregarding old men being abused by young women, Jessie J, dressed in a see-thru black fishing net, sang “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling” to Tom ‘Cialis’ Jones, and Lady Gaga, who left her meat dress home, sang standards while rubbing her ample décolletage on a delighted 88 year-old Tony Bennett.

Other Grammy 2015 highlights included Sir Paul McCartney looking out of place, strumming his guitar with no mic and watching as Kanye adjusted his droopy drawers, and Rihanna, sans a Chris Brown-administered black eye, bounced around the stage singing “FourFiveSeconds.”

Stevie Wonder got a standing ovation he had no clue he was receiving, and an aging Prince, dressed in an orange-is-the-new-black jumpsuit, made a curious reference to the late Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri fame, saying, “Albums still matter. Like books and black lives, albums still matter.”

Clearly, Prince didn’t think through his wardrobe choice. Either that or he was unaware that if Michael had managed to steal Darren Wilson’s gun and shoot the police officer, a similar outfit is what Mr. Brown would be wearing in jail.

The show included lots of hoodies and ignorant “hands up” protest references, but not one mention of the two NYPD officers blown away in their police cruiser by Ismaayil Brinsley.

At one point, Madonna was introduced by that sweaty “badass…bitch’” Miley Cyrus and her cohort Nicki ‘Bloated Butt’ Minaj. Thankfully, “All About That Bass” Madge donned some much-needed shorts.

The decrepit diva attempted to relive the 1980s with a horde of horned men and did an embarrassingly clumsy number that looked more like she was auditioning for a Tena pad commercial than performing on the Grammys.

An out-of-place looking Beck, who beat Beyoncé by winning album of the year, was publicly dissed by Kanye and sang with Gwyneth Paltrow’s ex-husband Chris Martin.

Gwyneth, who refuses to be upstaged, dragged her girly parts away from her steam-cleaning machine long enough to introduce her “beautiful friend” Beyoncé, who went from being “drunk in love” to singing the sober Gospel song “Take My Hand Precious Lord.”

Beyoncé took to the stage in all her majestic glory to prove to the world that she, not Ledisi, should have played Mahalia Jackson in the movie Selma.

Wrapping up, country superstar Miranda Lambert cursed and was censored while singing “Little Red Wagon,” Nicole Kidman still can’t move her face, and the 2014 dead people slide show touched many hearts. But more importantly, for degenerates, gay rights activists, Obama fanatics, and cop-killer sympathizers, as always, this year’s Grammy Awards show really delivered.

Cuba, Anyone? A Bright Future for American Doctors

cuba docsOriginally posted at The Clash Daily

If ever there was a warning of what horrors lie ahead for our healthcare system, Cuba’s decision to give raises to their medical personnel is a sobering look into a future where America’s private physicians are downgraded to government employees.

In a vacation spot frequented by the likes of billionaires Jay-Z and Beyoncé, to promote “fairness” Cuba does benevolent things like ration food and medicine, pay government workers a share-the-wealth salary that averages about $20 per month, and, for their services, provides doctors with free housing and food subsidies.

Now, Cuba’s Communist Party daily newspaper Granma is reporting that Cuba “expects to take in $8.2 billion this year for the tens of thousands of medical workers it sends to care for the poor in countries such as Venezuela and Brazil.” In turn Cuba will reward health workers with raises that, in some cases, surpass a 100% increase.

Thanks to that infusion of money, as well as an “elimination of 109,000 redundant jobs in the last four years,” a cost-cutting effort that, quite frankly, the US federal government should attempt, 440,000 Cuban medical sector employees, also known as those without a “vested interest in disease,” will soon be rolling in the big bucks.

That should inspire the top 1% types here in America to encourage their children to pursue medicine as a career.

This is the pay scale our future doctors and nurses can look forward to if Barack Obama continues to have his way: Cuban doctors with two specialties such as hematologist/oncologists will see their salary go from the equivalent of $26 a month to $67, or $2.23 per day. For entry-level nurses, woo-hoo, the pay will jump up from $13 to a whopping $25 per month.

According Health Minister Roberto Morales, even double pay is still a small fraction of what Cuba collects from the 66 nations where 50,000 Cuban healthcare professionals work.

Nevertheless, one of those lucky winners of life’s lottery, 62-year-old nurse, Soraida Pina, is over the moon with excitement over the impending influx of extra cash. Sounding like a Cuban version of Warren Buffett, Soraida had this to say: “This is very good news that makes me tremendously happy. … With my first paycheck I’m going to buy a toy for my youngest grandson, who’s three.”

A toy for a grandson is a tad extravagant, but maybe just this once nurse Pina can splurge without the National Revolutionary Police Force addressing her unwillingness to share.

Don’t be fooled by the scarcity that permeates the socialist stronghold; while its people are poor, Cuba is a rich nation that, despite the impressive pay hikes and supposed economic changes, maintains a socialist system that is “irrevocable.

That’s why Laura Vazquez, a 38-year-old pathologist, isn’t all that impressed with the news, because in the beautiful socialist paradise that is Cuba, the salaries are low and the cost of living remains high. “They had talked to us about this,” she said, “and it’s very important for the family economy, but it continues to be a salary that means very little because everything is very expensive.”

It’s not “very expensive” Laura, it’s just central planning’s effort to keep the Cuban people grateful for things like the limited availability of rationed goods.

With that in mind, Dr. Laura should just be thankful that healthcare professionals assigned to international missions to countries like Venezuela, a nation that supplies Cuba with 92,000 barrels of oil a day (which can be exchanged for hard currency), are paid double.

Meanwhile, here in America, with the Castro brothers’ secret admirer ‘fundamentally transforming” the US healthcare system, it’s not implausible that American doctors will one day be demoted to government workers too.

That’s why all the medical professionals and future medical professionals who favored Obamacare should be relieved to know that when they voted for Barack Obama they also voted for a future salary of about $67 a month.

Christian Grammy Nominee Natalie Grant Walks Out of the Grammys

 

Natalie Grant

I would like to thank everyone for making this article so widely read:  @5 million readers. 

Outstanding! 

May God be glorified as His people stand for truth.

Christian Contemporary music star Natalie Grant was nominated for two Grammys.

Grant was up for Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance for “Alive (Mary Magdelene),” a song she wrote with her husband Bernie Helms, and Best Christian Music Song for the chart-topping “Hurricane.”

The couple went to the Grammys proud to represent gospel music. Little did they know when they arrived at the Los Angeles Staples Center that they’d be going to church.

To warm up the congregation and open the service, Beyoncé twerked her ample bethonged derriere to the delight of millions. After that, Natalie and Bernie were subjected to Mrs. Carter sitting astride a chair in, shall we say, an extremely come-hither position.

Next the high-powered billionaire, Jay-Z ,and his bodacious bride left little to imagination about what goes on in their boudoir when nobody’s looking.

From there, Natalie got to see pop star Katy Perry, who used to sing about Jesus. However, since crossing over into showbiz stardom she’s been circling the vortex of hellish behavior for years. Katy, wearing an illuminated Knights Templar cross on her chest, pushed the envelope beyond ‘kissing a girl’ in what even the secular media described as a Satanic Ritual, or at best, witchcraft.

Right about that time Natalie and Bernie were probably starting to feel out of place among people winning awards for being “Up all night to ‘Get lucky.’”

It’s unclear which debauched performance prompted Natalie Grant and Bernie Helms to call it a night.

Hopefully, they were already gone and missed the church-like mockery that was overseen by Reverend Latifah. Wedding music was compliments of a menopausal Madonna on behalf of 34 same- and mixed-sex couples who tied the knot on what’s supposed to be a music awards show.

Refusing to pass judgment on the debacle, after she left Natalie had this to say on her Facebook page, which in a few words said so much:

We left the Grammy’s early. I’ve many thoughts about the show tonight, most of which are probably better left inside my head. But I’ll say this: I’ve never been more honored to sing about Jesus and for Jesus. And I’ve never been more sure of the path I’ve chosen.

Michelle Obama’s Nip/Tuck Birthday

Michelle Obama

Originally posted at the Blacksphere

Michelle Obama is turning 50 and having a “Snacks & Sips & Dances & Desserts” dance party to mark the event. 

The guest list is still under wraps, but the Bey and Jay buzz is that, as predicted, Beyoncé will be singing Happy Birthday to the first lady.

Either way, in the run-up to her 50th Michelle told People magazine she’s unopposed to plastic surgery and/or Botox to help keep things ‘tightened up.’ With that in mind, maybe it would be a good idea for party coordinator Valerie Jarrett to invite Archie Bell and the Drells to perform “Tighten Up.”

The first lady, who’s not one to skimp on personal “feel good” things for herself, said about going the Nip/Tuck-Nancy Pelosi route that:

“Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves. Right now, I don’t imagine that I would go that route, but I’ve also learned to never say never.”

In addition to her cosmetic surgery views, Mrs. Obama also had some half-century advice for those now enmeshed in the Obamacare nightmare: stay healthy. Although she’ll never have to sit in a clinic, be denied access, or find out her gastroenterologist is no longer covered, Michelle never misses a checkup.

As a matter of fact, during the interview, falling into the TMI category, the 50-year-old first lady felt moved to share with America that those checkups include mammograms (ouch), Pap smears (eeww), and even a colonoscopy (eeewww).

Clearly a bit heftier than she was when her husband took office five years ago, Michelle, while still obsessing about what everyone else eats, said “I don’t obsess about what I eat, but I do make sure that I’m eating vegetables and fruit.”

When not vacationing, the mastermind of the failed “Let’s Move!” campaign to reduce childhood obesity rates claims that she does exercise.  Although inflexible like her husband in more ways than one, the first lady’s newest shtick is to become flexible through yoga.

However, she is no longer maintaining her world-famous biceps with strength training or working up a sweat doing the Dougie with Jimmy Fallon.

When asked in the interview if she has peaked at 50, menopausal Michelle admitted that, much like her husband’s haughtily-positioned nose, as first lady she too is “pretty high up.”

Also in keeping with the secular atmosphere that the Obama administration works hard to establish, the first lady said that her life is “ever-evolving.” And with typical self-effacing humility contended that she doesn’t have the right to “just sit on my talents or blessings” –  regardless of how wide those middle-aged talents or blessings may spread.

Michelle looks forward to the empty nest that lies ahead in 2017, when the country is freed from socialist oppression and Malia goes to college. With Sasha following her older sister out the door soon after,  Michelle said that “at that point in life, whoa, the sky is the limit.”

For a woman notoriously alleged to have spent upwards of $10 million on personal vacations, what she might consider to be the ‘sky’s limit’ is a scary prospect indeed.

Nonetheless, after almost a month of vacationing in Hawaii (half of which was spent lounging around on Oprah’s Maui estate), within the week the big White House birthday/dance party is scheduled to take place.

Although the surprise superstar guest list has not been made public, what we do know is that the fortunate invitees have been instructed by senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett to arrive already-fed and ready to move.  Sorry, but for the 50-and-over set, those party directives may necessitate Gas X and Milk of Magnesia be given out as party favors.

In the end, the pressing question is neither the party favors nor the guest list.

Instead, America’s concern should be whether the president is thinking about birthday gifting, at taxpayer expense, that face lift, blepharoplasty, Botox, and dermal filler that 50-year-old Michelle admits she’s thinking about.

Michelle Obama: The Funeral Frowning Wench

Originally posted at The Clash Daily

Michelle Obama is the scowling funeral attendee and Barack, whether he laughs or cries, just can’t please the woman.

For some reason the first lady either takes memorials so seriously that she glowers continuously throughout the service, or spending that much time sitting next to Barack Obama makes her perfectly-tweezed eyebrows furrow and her forehead elevens cry out for an emergency shot of Botox.

Unlike Bill Clinton, who cries only on camera at funerals, Mrs. Obama seems unaware that being on the world stage requires some acting skill. Even if the wife of a US president is bored, annoyed, or just plain pissed off at some blonde chick yukking it up with the old man, it’s best to learn how to pretend to be happy at public events.

If you think about it, the only time Michelle Obama beams is if she’s dancing with Ellen DeGeneres, front and center at a Beyoncé concert, making menu choices for chubby Americans, or if there is food involved.

The first funeral frown that was captured for posterity was at “Godmother” of the American civil rights movement Dorothy Height’s funeral. Her husband gave that eulogy, too. In essence, the gist of what Obama had to say about Dorothy was similar to what was conveyed at the 94,000-people strong funeral memorializing Nelson Mandela.

In Washington, DC, at 98-year-old Dorothy Height’s memorial, quite unlike himself, Obama had this to say about the deceased civil rights activist: “She never cared about who got the credit. What she cared about was the cause. The cause of justice, the cause of equality, the cause of opportunity, freedom’s cause.”

During that funeral, the president lost it. He cried so much it bordered on uncontrolled sobbing: 

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytorUeuZj9o[/youtube]

Michelle, doing her best Ice Princess, shot Mr. Obama a very displeased look that was thought to be a non-verbal communiqué to pull himself together. Let’s put it this way: judging from the expression on the first lady’s face, Barry’s histrionics were not going over well.

Now, three years later the first couple is in Johannesburg, South Africa, where the president eulogized the late Nelson Mandela with moving words such as:

Mandela understood the ties that bind the human spirit. There is a word in South Africa- Ubuntu – that describes his greatest gift: his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by sharing ourselves with others, and caring for those around us.

Only this time, rather than open lamentation, Barack Obama found a way to both mourn and have one helluva time as he horsed around taking playful selfies with British Prime Minister David Cameron and some blonde Danish PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

Again, Michelle displayed the same type of non-verbal displeasure as she did when Obama was crying back in Washington, DC over Dorothy Height, which certainly sends the president a mixed message.

When it comes to funeral etiquette, as far as Michelle’s concerned, it looks like poor Barack is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.

If he expresses sorrow by crying, Mrs. Obama shoots him an annoyed look. If he’s affable, smiling, and having a good time with attractive blondes who just happen to be world leaders, she also shoots him a look.

In this particular case, it looks as if Barry was given a time out and forced to switch seats so that Michelle could put some distance between hubby and Ms. Thorning-Schmidt, who got more than the cold shoulder from Michelle. The Danish prime minister got the cold back.

Not for nothing, as they say in New York, but could you imagine how awkward the plane ride back home was for G.W. and Laura? The Bushes were probably subjected to hearing a furious Michelle, who apparently can’t control her face or her feelings, read Barry the riot act for getting a little too chummy with the blonde Danish chick.

Anyway, it makes one wonder: with the look on Mrs. Obama’s face at Dorothy Height’s funeral, what if Thalia had been sitting on the other side of macho salsa dancer Barack Obama?

Street Cred’ Michelle says Obama’s Got Swag

Originally posted at The Blacksphere

Recently, Michelle Obama granted her first BET interview to the hosts of 106 & Park, Bow Wow and Keshia Chante.

After being introduced as the “personification of grace and beauty,” writer/lawyer/first lady Mrs. Obama made a grand entrance in biker leathers as a screeching Beyoncé filled the screen behind her, jumping around to “Move Your Body.”

After informing her hosts that the Beyoncé video was her music and that on the day the video was taped there were “flash mobs across the world,” Mrs. Obama spent a goodly amount of time speaking about her youth, her aspirations, and her husband Barry’s unimpeachable swag.

As part of the interview, the first lady was shown three extremely unattractive photographs of herself and was then asked, “What would you tell that girl?”

For the first picture, Michelle shifted into her predictable ‘I was afraid I wasn’t smart or bright enough’ routine.  She followed that up with the “Failure is the key to success” bit, which is something her husband knows a thing or two about.

For the second photo, the FLOTUS told the BET audience that despite their lack of confidence, one day even they could be president or first lady.

The third and final picture was Michelle and her senior prom date, which inspired her to share ad nauseam her ‘we didn’t have much money, mom sewed the dress with the slit, I rode the bus three hours to school’ blather.

The girl in the picture also revealed that by the time the senior prom rolled around she was breathing a sigh of relief, because despite school counselors telling her that she wasn’t Princeton material and after admitting that she stunk in math and science, it turns out Princeton accepted her anyway.

Leaving all the high falutin’ Princeton/Harvard/lawyer conversation behind, Michelle “unauthorized to practice law” Obama busted out her best gangsta’ lingo and said that for agreeing to appear on the BET show, she was getting “street cred’ at home” with her daughters.

The FLOTUS also admitted, “[m]y husband has got swag. He has got a good voice.”  Michelle’s “got swag” revelations were met with cheers from the audience and questions from the hosts about the president’s impromptu Apollo Theater rendition of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together,” to which Michelle replied:

It was really sweet. But he sings all the time. Oh, yes, he’s in the bathroom all the time just singing. He is always willing to sing. He’s like, you want me to sing now, want me to sing something for you?

Wait! Forget the “Failure is the key to success” and riding the city bus stuff.  Didn’t Obama just skip the 150th Anniversary Gettysburg Address ceremony because he was working nonstop on that notorious “website?” Now it’s revealed that while he’s in “free fall,” Obama spends time singing in the john.

What Michelle didn’t disclose was when hubby vocalizes in the commode, whether or not he wears a bandana under a sideways baseball cap.  Nor did she say if his pants hang below his butt and show his boxer shorts.

Sure, Obama has swag, but does his toilet attire include a gaudy gold chain and pinky ring, alligator shoes, and a grill like the one Lady Gaga wore to the YouTube Video Awards?

Either way, Obama’s approval rating is still 37% and sagging.

So before all is lost, maybe Michelle should use some of  her “street cred’” to insist our swaggering president up the swag quotient by spending even more time singing in the bathroom.

Beyoncé Loses Hair Extensions in Brush with Fan

BeyonceOriginally posted at BIG Hollywood

Situation Room visitor, White House frequenter, and object of Michelle Obama idolatry Queen Bey/Beyoncé/Mrs. Carter of the Mrs. Carter Show Tour got her coif caught in a fan.  Not a fan-fan like a stage fan, but one of those used to blow around J. Lo’s or Beyoncé’s flowing locks in order to make them look like they’re able to maintain the glamour edge in the midst of a 100 mph hurricane gale.

Reminiscent of the late Michael Jackson’s hair catching fire during the taping of a Pepsi commercial, Beyoncé, Pepsi’s newest spokesperson, had her hair entangled in the fan blades mid-song while she was performing her hit Halo. Bey should be thanking God that she wasn’t wearing that anatomically correct outfit that she dons during the concert because there might have been something besides her hair that needed to be cut loose.

Fresh off joining another guy known for his famous hair, the Rev. Al Sharpton, at the ‘Justice 4 Trayvon’ rally at One Penn Plaza in New York City, Beyoncé was in Montreal when the calamitous fan attack occurred.

Ever the consummate professional, she continued to sing while her hair was stuck in the fan, proving to America that having the constrictive presence of President Barack Obama twisting us into contorted positions is not a good reason to use pain as an excuse to stop moving FORWARD.

As Beyoncé tried in vain to release her tresses from the grip of the overzealous machine, an attentive servant, er, crew member grabbed a pair of scissors and cut Beyoncé’s Virgin Remy Malaysian hair extensions from the blades. To be truthful, the fan was just minding its own business when it was accosted by Queen Bey’s lion’s mane and then falsely accused of tangling up the pop star’s blonde mop in its whirling blades.

After the show, famous letter-writer Beyoncé posted an expressive explanation in longhand for her audience to read, explaining that during the song when she sang “Halo, ooh ooh, oh,” the wince on her face had nothing to do with the “…ooh ooh, oh” part and everything to do with having her extensions nearly torn from her scalp while attempting to look ultra-cool at Montreal’s Bell Center.

Displaying a creative mix of upper and lower case lettering as well as an overabundance of the letter “i,” the paraphrase of the song Halo read:  “Gravity can’t begiiiiiiiin to pull me out of the fan again.  I felt my hair was YANKIIIIIIIIN, from the fan that’s always hatiiiiiiiin, Virgin Remy & “Malay SIIIIIIAAAAAAN, HAAAAAAAAA!!”

Beyoncé summed up the note by saying: “I got snatched…‘2 snaps’” and ended with “Goodnight All, B.”

Lesson to be gleaned from the weave assault? In the future, Beyoncé should attempt to keep all hair extension-flicking to an absolute minimum, especially when sitting in front of a fan. However, in the worst case scenario, if it’s so important to have a wind machine in close proximity for effect while singing Halo, maybe Beyoncé should consider a hairdo like the one she wore in Cuba, or perhaps a protective Halo Helmet to go with that golden-breasted spacesuit she insists on wearing.

Another Al Sharpton ‘Movement’!

Billionaire rapper Jay Z and his wife Beyoncé lent their star presence to a rally in New York City headed up by Al Sharpton featuring Trayvon’s mother Sybrina Fulton, who was joined by her son Jahvaris Fulton.

Nationwide rallies were held demanding justice for Trayvon Martin, the teen who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a Neighborhood Watch volunteer who tragically crossed paths with Trayvon and who has since been acquitted of second-degree murder.

Over 100 rallies and vigils took place across the nation organized by the Reverend Al Sharpton, who is calling for the US Department of Justice to pursue civil rights charges against Zimmerman, even though he was acquitted in the state of Florida.

In the Big Apple, a diverse sea of New Yorkers showed up to stand for Trayvon by holding placards.

One protester’s sign quoted Barack Obama, who said, “I am Trayvon.” Another reached their own verdict with a sign saying “Guilty for stalking and murder.” There were fashion statements like “I love my hoodie,” patriotic expressions like “Justice for all Americans,” and Stevie Wonder fans encouraging Beyoncé to “Boycott Florida.”

Tearing up, Trayvon’s mother, who’s been thrust into the limelight, was met with shouts of “We love you.” Sybrina wept as she told the crowd, “Trayvon was no burglar [he stole jewelry], Trayvon is not here to speak for himself [obviously]. Trayvon was a child and sometimes I think that gets lost in the system.”  The last of which makes no sense at all.

At One Police Plaza, Jay Z, Mrs. Z, and Al Sharpton stood beside Sybrina Fulton. The quartet that included Shawn Corey Carter was a tad ironic, especially because Jay “Gangsta’ Sh*t” Z, whose lyrics extol the glories of the type of thug life Trayvon allegedly aspired to, could be considered partially responsible for the teen losing his life.

Although evidence showed that Trayvon broke Zimmerman’s nose, straddled him and was bashing his head against a sidewalk, Sybrina maintained, “George Zimmerman started the fight and George Zimmerman ended the fight.”

It was either that, or a few more bangs against the concrete and Mrs. Zimmerman would have been speaking at a memorial for her son.

Fulton said, “My son died without knowing who killed him. He died without knowing who his murdered [sic] was.” Yes he did – it was the “creepy ass cracka” who Trayvon treated to some “ground and pound” and threatened with the words, “You’re gonna die tonight.”

Former Governor Eliot Spitzer, that bastion of honesty and integrity, came out to support Martin and added his black socks to the discussion when he said that the Zimmerman/Martin ordeal is a “civil rights issue.” “Regardless of how you view the legality of the verdict in isolation, justice here was denied,” Spitzer opined, and “An innocent young man was shot and killed and that is a tragedy.”

Seeing as how Beyoncé chose not to lead another moment of silence for Trayvon, Spitzer (aka “Client #9”), saying that Trayvon was an “innocent young man” added gravitas to the event.

As for Beyoncé, it goes without saying that the performer was accompanied by a horde of armed bodyguards.

Nonetheless, when Queen Bey walked by protesters they shouted for her to follow Little Stevie Wonder’s lead of “No concerts in Florida!

Television Judge Greg Mathis was there criticizing stand-your-ground-laws, and said that legislation must be supported to overturn existing regulations in 30 states, including Florida. Mathis insisted,

“This backward state allows you to shoot first and ask no questions.”

Apparently this judge thinks verdicts should be questioned and an unbiased citizen jury reaching a verdict should be criticized for following the law.

George Zimmerman, stand-your-ground, and the trial verdict were not alone. NYPD was also dragged into the fray.  First they were accused of racial profiling, and then the stop-and-frisk policy was called into question.  Steven Shryack, 62, held a sign: “They never stop and frisk old white guys like me.”

Grandfather to a child of mixed race, Shryack asked “What kind of future does he face? I have the luxury of being white in this world. I have an unfair advantage.”  Steve should have spoken to Beyoncé about unfair advantage, because she’s a woman of mixed race whose future was severely impacted by being endowed with African-American, Louisiana Creole, and Native American blood.

Another protester from the East Village who, trust me, probably also plans to vote for Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer, said the Zimmerman verdict was “a horrible injustice.”  And although Bill Clinton wasn’t in attendance, the East Villager did make a veiled reference to the former president when he said “There’s racism going on in our country and everybody tries to blow it off.”

Sharpton, age 58, who rides around in a limo with his 35-year-old “girlfriend,” told the crowd “We are going to fight for what is right. They used to say segregation is better than slavery, but they never sat in the back of the bus” – and neither did he.

With Jay Z and Beyoncé adding credence to his words, the Reverend Al managed to sum up the spirit of the whole day.
