Michelle Obama Physique Criticized

First lady Michelle Obama, an advocate for improved kids’ nutrition in schools, was once again the subject of criticism aimed at her own physique this week. “Fat butt Michelle Obama,” a high school student secretly recorded his football coach Bob Grisham quipping. “Look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. She’s overweight,” he continued. Suspended 10 days for the comments, Grisham represents an ongoing trend that revolves around Mrs. Obama’s appearance—ranging from her body size to her hair. Inflammatory radio host Rush Limbaugh regularly refers to her campaign for low-calorie lunches as “Michelle ‘My Butts’ Lunch Program.” America’s fixation with the first lady’s looks has been around for decades, with Hillary Clinton being slammed with the claim that she had “cankles.”
