Michelle O: More Incoming Fire?

Well, US media is already spilling pixels (1, 2, 3, 4) on a quote attributed to Michelle Obama that was just published in a trashy unauthorized French Carla Bruni biography. Allegedly, Michelle told Carla that being First Lady is “hell.” If that’s the flimsy back story, what it also is is an invitation to another round of attacks after the right-wing and the media teamed up in castigating Michelle’s recent trip to Spain.

What’s the take away, beyond “cat fight,” from this Telegraph photo? Well, how about this Bruni nonsense setting up Michelle Obama again as a shallow narcissist and angry black woman?
