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

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.

Obama calms children as bees swarm his storytelling

Although it sounds a little like a new product for a couch potato suffering from chronic constipation, Michelle Obama’s ‘Let’s Move!’ initiative is celebrating its 5th anniversary of imposing government regulations on a nation that would rather she focus on something besides food.

To celebrate ‘Let’s Move!’ success, the healthy hashtag #gimmefive was added to this year’s theme for the 137th White House Easter Egg Roll.

Amidst all the excitement, in addition to hardboiled symbols of fertility being rolled around on the lawn of a pro-choice president, the first lady thought it would be appropriate to honor the ‘risen Christ’ by strutting her stuff with the “So You Think You Can Dance” dance troupe in time to a rhythmic rendition of “Uptown Funk.”

Then, in keeping with tradition, despite Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi being nowhere in sight, Barack Obama took to the Story Corner to read a cautionary tale by Maurice Sendak entitled “Where the Wild Things Are.”

Adhering closely to the tradition of prior years, the president sat down to read to the children. Unfortunately, before Obama could finish the 338-word story, a swarm of bees came in for the kill.

Not for nothing, as they say in Brooklyn, but did you ever notice that the president attracts ‘wild things’ like bugs, rats and, on more than one occasion, buzzard-sized flies?

This time, the same guy who reassured America that “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan” attempted to calm the children dodging the dive-bombing bees with the comforting words, “Oh no, it’s a bee. That’s OK, guys. Bees are good, they won’t land on you. They won’t sting you, they’ll be OK.”

That’s right, while Kenyan Christians massacred by the Somali-based al-Shabab terror group were being buried and Iran restated their commitment to the destruction of Israel as being “non-negotiable,” Barack Obama spent a busy Monday morning quelling the anxiety of children being menaced by bees.

Clearly ignoring the president’s insistence that bees, like ISIS, are just harmless JV team players, the children continued squealing, which inspired the president to kick it up a notch, yelling, “Hold on! Hold on! You guys are wild things! You’re not supposed to be scared of bees when you’re a wild thing!”

If this same group of kids realized that six years earlier the guy telling them not to be afraid of bees was the same person who would have enthusiastically funded the termination of their lives, it wouldn’t be bees the frightened children would have been stampeding to avoid.

Nevertheless, to reinforce the belief that bees notorious for stinging don’t sting, America’s most famous raconteur proved his point with a story about a badly behaved lad who, after being sent to bed without supper, dresses in a wolf costume.

Maybe the president finds “Where the Wild Things Are” inspiring because it reminds him of his own fantastical journey into the make-believe world of “Hope and Change.”

Think of it! Like America, Max’s room “fundamentally transforms” into a jungle. Obama flies on Air Force One and Max sails to an island populated with malicious beasts called Wild Things.

Obama bullies politicians and Max intimidates creatures.  But above all, similar to Barack Obama, Max is eventually acknowledged as the king of Wild Things who, before returning home to his supper, spends all his time cavorting with his subjects.

So that was Easter 2015 at the White House.  Before subjecting the kids to the excruciating sight of Michelle shaking her groove thing to “Uptown Funk” on the holiest of all Christian holidays, Barack Obama reaffirmed his empathetic nature by referring to small children terrified by a swarm of attacking bees as “Wild Things.”

Obama’s ball tossing a metaphor for his presidency – American Thinker Blog – April 7, 2010

Fresh from the inspiring White House 2010 Easter Egg Roll, where President Obama did his secular best to inspire children on the true meaning of Easter.  The teleprompter president showcased his skill by reading Dr. Seuss’s, Green Eggs and Ham.

It was there that President Obama told the children the “moral of the story was to never be afraid to try new things.” In all probability it wasn’t green eggs, or ham Obama was talking about, but probably pressuring Mom and Dad to buy an electric car to save the environment.

Obama, in a spiffy red Nationals jacket paired with inappropriate, shiny brown wing tips, took a break from rolling eggs. Gassing up the Cadillac limo Barry segued over to the Washington National’s opening game to participate in the 100-year old tradition of throwing out the first ball.

Back at the White House “Let’s Move” Easter celebration Obama was treated to adoration from a gaggle of giggling children.  At National Park the crowd, Obama tries “new things” on was larger and rougher.  The arena attendees “cheered a bit, but boos were clearly audible across the stadium.”

After “Obama took to the mound [he] made a costly error. He whipped from his glove a folded Chicago White Sox cap, shook it open and put the traitorous garment on his head. This time the boos came from Nat’s fans, too.” Playing both sides of the aisle, and reaching out to Independents, Obama injected post-partisanship into baseball. Obama donned the White Sox cap, which was met by “even louder boos” from the crowd. Pleased with the level of agitation the action stirred up Obama, in true Chicago style, kept the cap on.

Barack then attempted to throw the baseball 60 feet 6 inches.  The president’s “semisoft toss made the distance but missed the strike zone by a mile.” Sort of like going the distance by winning an election, but when governing, failing miserably by missing the strike zone by a mile?

Obama preened and then, “completed his delivery, using the familiar motion some commentators in the past derided as a girl toss.” Mimicking Obama’s endless highfalutin rhetoric, “the ball floated, slowly and with great loft, in the general direction of home plate,” but like Barry’s politics ended up being, “wild and far to the left.

Oblivious to the less than stellar performance, Obama reacted in the same way he does when responding to his diminishing standing in the polls.  Showered from all around with resounding boos, Barack “didn’t much mind. He stood atop the mound, waved to the cheering crowd and then strode off, doffing his cap.”

Of his pitch, Mr. Obama said afterwards: “I was a little disappointed with the pitch. It was high and outside,” sort of like the President, high-minded and outside the centrist mainstream. Then Obama did what he does best, which is to make excuses for shoddy performance by insisting, “I was intentionally walking the guy.”

Reminiscent of his Harry Smith interview, where Obama bragged that “Its like health care, I always come from behind – I finish strong.”  Obama excused his weak, girly toss by insisting, “If I had a whole inning, I’m telling you, I would have cleaned up.” It sounds like Obama was in campaign practice mode suggesting accuracy improves if given a “longer outing.”

Some advice for Barack Obama — stick to playing basketball because “had a runner been on base, the umpire may well have called a balk.”  So far, Mr. President it’s obvious to America you run the nation like you throw a baseball – poorly.
