Outside of Barack Obama, there is no one the left worships more than Michelle Obama.
They cheer her every move and are thrilled with anything she does that can be presented as anti-Trump.
So they were jumping for joy after this jaw dropping attack on Trump.
Left-wing journalists generated a new fake news scandal when they accused Trump’s Chief Strategist Steve Bannon of “fat shaming”.
He joked that Press Secretary Sean Spicer was doing fewer press briefings because he “got fatter.”
The Atlantic reports:
“Neither Spicer nor deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders responded to queries about the changes to the briefings. Asked why the briefings are now routinely held off-camera, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said in a text message “Sean got fatter,” and did not respond to a follow-up.”
This infuriated liberals.
Chelsea Clinton blasted Bannon for “fat shaming”.
But nothing thrilled liberals more than when Michelle Obama posted a picture on Instagram of her working out.
Writing at Vanity Fair, Kenzie Bryant described the post:
On Monday, Michelle Obama posted a photo series to Instagram of a bootcamp she organized with her friends. In the caption, she wrote about how it’s a tradition carried over from her days in the White House, where, remember, she spearheaded the “Let’s Move!” campaign, initiated to fight childhood obesity.
Obama wrote, “My girlfriends have been there for me through all kinds of life transitions over the years—including a pretty big one recently!—and we’ve done our best to stay healthy together. Whether it’s a bootcamp or a walk around the neighborhood, I hope you and your crew can find some time this summer to be healthy together.”
Bryant claimed this was the perfect response to Trump because of all the fat jokes made by him and his aides:
“The text message from White House chief strategist Steve Bannon to Atlantic reporter Rosie Gray was a joke that fits the comedy instincts of the current administration: that of a fourth-grade menace bent on terrorizing the playground. His boss, Donald Trump, has called out Paul LePage, Maine’s governor who recently got bariatric surgery, in a gratuitous weight-based aside. Per Politico, the president said, ”Governor LePage of Maine, who, by the way, has lost a lot of weight—I knew him when he was heavy and now I know him when he was thin, and I like him both ways, okay?”
He also singled out New Jersey Governor and personal patsy Chris Christie, telling him to lay off the Oreos. And these are his friends, who ostensibly laugh along (or else). Meanwhile, Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado, a former employee, Rosie O’Donnell, Kim Kardashian West, Jennifer Lopez, and many more, all on the receiving end of his lazy fat-shaming, aren’t laughing at all.
The easy criticism here is to look at who’s throwing stones, that it’s easy to see everysingle poor lifestyle choice of a person living in a glass house. That’s not making anyone healthier, happier, or better at being president. But Michelle does it right. She manages to stay pitch-perfect and on-message in the caption: she’s neither judgmental nor disingenuously concerned, neither moralizing nor self-flagellating in the way some fitness-heads are. There she is modeling healthy habits without judgment, while this administration regresses to every bully’s easiest material. Even though her Instagram arrived a day before Bannon’s text came to light, Obama is still going high when they go low.”
