Michelle Obama Condescending & Out-of-Touch in South Florida Visit

Michelle Obama at the Homestead YMCA Family Center., S. Florida - Feb. 10, 2012

Michelle Obama stopped in South Florida at the Homestead YMCA Family Center today to promote her anti-fat crusade. Even though she is not a nutritionist or a physician, Michelle Obama held a panel discussion on nutrition and exercise. At least this time she had some staff from WebMd.

Condescending:
Michelle Obama appears to think that parents are stupid. She acts as if we don’t know what healthy food is. NBC Miami reported:

[Michelle Obama] assured kids and parents that hamburgers and chicken nuggets aren’t completely off-limits, saying that burgers aren’t necessarily bad if they are grilled and served on a whole wheat bun. Chicken nuggets are better when they’re baked, not fried, she said.
Great! Queen Michelle Obama will not take away our hamburgers as long as they are on a whole wheat bun. And she will allow us to eat chicken nuggets as long as they are not fried.

Out-of-Touch:
Michelle Obama told the crowd that she does cardio, pilates, tennis, and a little kickboxing. “I did a Zumba class over vacation. That was a lot of fun,” Michelle Obama revealed.

How many Americans, especially people living in areas like the City of Homestead (where median household income is $37,901), can afford Zumba/pilates/tennis/kickboxing classes during these economic hard times?

Psyching up the crowd:
The small crowd was pumped up by volunteers before Michelle Obama’s arrival. They led people in a series of jumping jacks and arm-whipping jump-rope moves before her visit.
