First Lady Michelle Obama will barnstorm the country to “celebrate” the third anniversary of her Let’s Move initiative, staging events and taping TV appearances around the country to promote her controversial initiative.
Michelle has almost completely ignored the Let’s Move since last summer, choosing to keep it off the radar during the campaign and in the weeks after Election Day. The initiative was creating bad vibes for President Obama at the very high schools where he was frequently campaigning, with kids recoiling in revulsion at the healthier new menus. Meanwhile, Republicans were targeting the initiative as egregious Nanny State overreach.
But for at least several days, Michelle will be back with the program.
On Friday she will be in New York City to tape appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Dr. Oz Show, and on Good Morning America with pro-Obama Anchor Robin Roberts.
On Wednesday, February 27, Michelle will join TV personality Rachael Ray in Clinton, Mississippi for a cooking competition that will be broadcast on The Rachael Ray Show March 11.
On Thursday, February 28 she will be in Chicago with Mayor Rahm Emanuel, NIKE, Inc. President & CEO Mark Parker, Dominique Dawes, Gabby Douglas, Allyson Felix, Bob Harper, Bo Jackson, Colin Kaepernick, Sarah Reinertsen, Paul Rodriguez, Serena Williams, and “a surprise musical guest.” She’ll make “a major announcement to bring physical activity back to schools” during the extravaganza.
Later the same day she will travel to Springfield, Missouri for an appearance at a Walmart Store.
On Monday, March 4 Mrs. Obama will join a Google+ Hangout from the White House. The event will be moderated by Kelly Ripa. And on Wednesday, March 6 she will answer questions via Twitter.
