Why Can’t Michelle Obama Wear Shorts?
Should the first lady be entitled to dress down?
Hands up if you have ever worn shorts while on summer vacation? You’d be in the minority if you hadn’t, right? So why is everyone freaking out over Michelle Obama wearing shorts while on a trip to the Grand Canyon this week?
Does the first lady have the right to wear shorts? I say, are you kidding me? It’s not like she slipped on a pair of Daisy Dukes or was photographed writhing semi naked on some bed sheets like France’s first lady, Carla Bruni.
Sure, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton didn’t bare her arms or thighs – and for this I am profoundly grateful. They should stay covered up. But Michelle is a younger, hipper, fitter first lady, and I just can’t understand what all the fuss is about. While it wasn’t the most flattering outfit Michelle has ever worn, she was photographed in much uglier shorts back in June. And if you ask me, they were a far bigger crime – against fashion.
