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.

  1. I think shorts are fine but I sure wish she had a sense of style! Those shorts with the gold colored tank top looked like they came from a thrift store. She doesn’t know how to look stylish. If she wore a stylish short outfit there wouldn’t be as much flack. She seriously needs to hire someone to pick her outfits for every moment of her life until she is out of the White House. She has no taste! She could easily make the worst dressed list.

  2. Now, now, now nevie_one
    Did you ever hear the one about “people in glass houses…”?
    It is protocol (not protocal) you dummy
    breaking (not braking)
    and Michelle Obama can wear whatever she wants – she is a wonderful first lady


  4. Excuse me but being the president’s wife does put her in a glass house! The only reason the Kennedy comparison was brought up was because some fools have tried to compare her to Jackie. Jackie would never have been seen in shorts. She was a true lady and respected her position. She curtsied to the Queen and would never have given her an IPOD with pictures of herself. There is class and there is trash. Some of those outfits she wears would put her in the latter. I have to ask, if she is such a great first “lady”, what has she done that is so great? I know she has been on one vacation after another. She has been spending LOTS of our money traveling but other than that, she hasn’t done one thing to deserve the title of “great lady!” So what is so great about her? Is it only because she is black? If so, I have known many black women who would put her to shame.

  5. Thousands of people have lost their jobs, thousands more lost their homes. Too many of our soldiers are dying in far off wars and right here in the US there are young children who are starving. Our country is in a severe crisis that

  6. uuh, Im not really getting this without links to back it up… was there actually a national outcry againts her wearing shorts or is this article just talking about some other article that bashed her shorts-wearing? In either case, wow, I cant believe people are actually getting bent out of shape over this… whats the difference between wearing shorts and wearing a skirt above the knee, something which must be appropriate first lady attire. Is she breaking into a man’s territory by wearing shorts? Is it because she bares her ankles?? Seriously, maybe you should cover her up with a veil like a muslim… or maybe just stone her, that’ll teach her…
