First lady talks to Letterman about Target visit

March 20, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama says she thought for sure her cover was blown during an undercover visit to Target last year when a woman approached her in the detergent aisle.

But the first lady told David Letterman on Monday the woman only wanted help with a package she couldn’t reach.

Thankfully, the Associated Press photographer who went with Michelle to Target for her ‘photo op,’ and who clicked off an endless stream of pictures did not call any attention to her.

During Obama’s visit to CBS’ "Late Show," Letterman held up a picture of her after she put on sunglasses and a baseball cap to try to visit a Washington-area Target Corp. store last September.

Obama said the woman apparently was oblivious of the fact she had asked a favor of the first lady and said "you didn’t have to make it look so easy" after the detergent was retrieved.

"That was my interaction," Obama said. "It felt so good."

In the good old days, kings and queens would often dress up like the peasants and mingle among them for a lark.

Michelle’s spiritual ancestor, Marie Antoinette, even had a lavish farm built on the grounds of one of her castles, so that she and her friends could dress up like milk maids and shepherdesses, and play at being the ‘little people.’

The first lady talked about how she learned from her parents the notion of unconditional love, that the most important thing for children to know is that their parents adore them

Of course, Michelle and Obama know all about "unconditional love," if only from the way the news media and the entertainment media treat them on a daily basis.

She said she and the president try to instill that stability in their own two daughters, and almost became emotional talking about her father.

"Don’t make me cry," she said. "This isn’t ‘Oprah.’ It’s supposed to be ‘Letterman.’"

Apparently, the focus groups are saying the voters want to see Michelle’s vulnerable side.

But speaking of daughters, you have to wonder why didn’t Michelle ask Letterman why he ‘joked’ that Derick Jeter ‘knocking up’ Sarah Palin’s 14 year old daughter?

In fact, why did the First Lady even agree to appear on TV with such a notorious misogynist? Have Obama’s talking points about the abuse of women by media figures been cast aside already?

    Allow me to be the first to post how much this woman disgusts me.

    Solid evidence in the products Michelle had a cleaning job to cover-up a mess that she did not want anyone else to know about.

    It could be as petty as her puking after and bender to something much more sinister.

    Interesting womanizing Letterman is curious about this.

    And to think I thought NIKE and Lysol paid her under the table.

    Jeter? I thought that it was Alex Rodriguez.

    from one royal to a subject. One day at a time.

      Thanks,wirenut I needed a laugh and you just provided one. I haven’t heard that expression in thirty years and it brings back some fond memories.

    JohnMG, Thankyou! Funning about dire straits is all one can do. One edit from above post would be, royal to roil. The rest stands. Haw! Thanks for the input, and you’re insight is dead-on. See you on the flip side.

    So, a quivering lip is what’s in order now? Whenever a democrat needs to get some fancy-free exposure, they always run to dirtbag David Letterman.

    Rand Paul goes on, and Letterman argues with him, scrunches up his face in confused disagreement, but some liberal comes on, and you can just feel the phony set-up and rehearsed questions coming.
