Uhhhhh boy. This is a picture of President Obama and Mrs. Obama attending a Congressional Black Caucus event tonight. I’m sure my readers will sense a possible wardrobe malfunction, but this is really not my area of expertise, since I have many of those myself.
The question on the mind of the press pooler tonight was: Has Mrs. Obama cut her hair??
When POTUS and the first lady arrived, they received a long ovation. Michelle Obama was wearing a flowing, deep red gown and appears (on the big screen as the pool is very far from the stage) to have a new short haircut, though it’s possible that it’s just styled in a way that makes it look short.
Is it the short and sassy look for Michelle? It’s possible she was getting it cut just before coming out. From the pool report:
Slightly odd communications glitch at the start as Reps. Barbara Lee and Donald Payne were introducing POTUS. Just as Payne was saying how proud he was to welcome POTUS to the stage, he must have gotten some sort of signal that POTUS wasn’t ready. The band then played some background music for a few minutes, then a slideshow of key political and corporate leaders went up (biggest applause was for Donna Brazile), and several actors filled in briefly with a discussion of the plotline of The Young and The Restless soap opera. About 10 minutes passed.
Oh yeah, there was a speech. It had something to do with “Republicans suck.” But the CBC knew that already.
