"I especially love the cover story, which for the first time isn't a super-popular star, but a fabulous, beautiful black transwoman channeling a politician who looks pretty much like Michelle Obama,” Venegas told Dazed Digital. “I remember back in early 2007 when the Democratic Party’s nominees were narrowed down between two "controversial" stereotypes never before seen for presidency: a black man, Barack Obama; and a woman, Hillary Rodham Clinton. At that time, I thought, 'when will the time come when these archaic walls break down and the White House will be occupied by, for example, a black, transsexual woman?’”

The Obama's are spending taxpayer money to vacation 3 weeks in Hawaii cost: 5 Million, that includes $258,000.00 to transport Mrs.Obama's clothes closet.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?????????
5 million dollars would go a long way helping the EAST coast families with getting re-settled.......
From day one I have never understood reports of how great Michelle Obama looks. May I ask, compared to what? I know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but if we're talking physical beauty about Michelle Obama I say nay nay. She is a towering amazon with some out to there bow legs. Heighth doth not a supermodel maketh. And no doubt she has dental insurance so she should do something about that overbite, seriously. I'll stop there because I don't want to be mean. I think the lad in the photo above looks better than she ever has, now that's just the truth. Nice clothes look nice but they don't change what's inside of them. One last thought and this is about those $540.00 Lanvin sneakers she owns. For Pete's sake, how did she not have the good grace and decency NOT to wear them to a food bank when arriving for her volunteer photo op. Oopsie.
