In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Michelle Hosts ‘Biggest Loser’ Workout in the East Room

A newly found photo that appears to have been taken by the White House itself shows that Michelle Obama last month conducted a sweaty workout session in the East Room as part of an appearance she will make on TV’s “The Biggest Loser.”

The ornate and historic East Room is a national treasure that has been used for events like presidential press conferences, command performances by the world’s greatest musicians, the signing of historic legislation like the 1964 Civil Rights Act, shimmering White House parties, presidential awards of military and civilian honors, and the funeral of Abraham Lincoln.

And this.

The White House may be trying to quash the photo, either because officials realized the it might look like Michelle was trivializing the White House or because they don’t want to preempt the show by advertising Michelle’s presence on it.

According to one of our readers – Janice, who videoblogs at Granny Jan and Jihad Kitty and who provided White House Dossier with the shot – the photo was on the White House Fickr photostream, from which she downloaded it. It’s now gone.

The photo is almost certainly by the White House. Its background coding includes the name “Herbert,” which likely refers to Sonya Herbert, the first lady’s official photographer. And it has not been widely circulated, which it would have been if news photographers had been allowed into the workout session to shoot it.

Michelle has held other events of questionable taste amidst hallowed White House backdrops. All, like the appearance on The Biggest Loser, were to promote her “Let’s Move” fitness and healthy eating initiative.

In January, she staged a potato sac race with comedian Jimmy Fallon in the East Room.

Notice the famous Lansdowne portrait of George Washington – saved in 1812 by Dolley Madison before the British torched the White House. He appears to be gesturing as if to say, “What the heck is going on here?”

Michelle and Fallon were also photographed having a tug of war in the Diplomatic Reception Room beneath another portrait of Washington.

Michelle’s appearance on The Biggest Loser, taped in February, reportedly will be aired in April.

  2. The Obama’s have absolutely no respect for the white House or anything to do with american history. These people are under the impression that they won a 4 year all expense paid vacation.

  3. “You can take the Apes out of the Jungle, but you can’t take the Jungle out of the Apes”. Her POS loser husband uses two hundred year old desks for footstools. These savages have ZERO CLASS and are a complete embarrassment to this country. These clowns need to be sent packing in November.

  8. Ugh. How could anyone have so little class or sense of appropriateness than Michelle (Baggy Underarms) Obama? Yes, I saw her baggy underarms in that awful gown she wore for inauguration. That is about the last time I looked for any appearance by that woman. Everything about her shrieks unattractive and unhistoric. Talk about homewrecker! Remember Michelle, everything there is only for your use, not destruction and/or take it with you when you leave. That White House and its contents are owned by US. Not you, US. Don’t let the door smack your fat behind on your way out. Can you hear it Michelle? The chimes of freedom. They are ringing the demise of your wrecking ball and the reinstatement of US.

  10. Why could we not have George and Louise Jefferson living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue instead of Barack and Michelle Bumstead?

    Just wondering.

  26. Gag – well I know what parts of that dvr’d session of Biggest Loser I will FAST forward through! These two people in the White House do not want to do what is best for America, they want to be famous celebrities and do what is best ONLY for them and their future books. They are the biggest scam artists and have pulled the biggest joke on America, half of whom don’t even know it.

  27. is it legal to show uppity black people on tv when they isn’t cleaning or doing chores?
    why cant this woman just stay off tv and shut up like a good wife is supposed to?

  33. Micheel Obama should be told REPEATEDLY that she does not own the White House,. It belongs to the people of the United States and should be treated with respect. She should hire a gym for such activities or use one at one of the many military facilities surrounding the District of Columbia.
