First lady’s followers not on board with her Wal-Mart shout-out

Following Michelle Obama’s top-secret appearance at the Academy Awards telecast, a lot of people mistook as a right-wing “freak out” what was actually a routine case of first lady overexposure syndrome. We’d already been treated to her visit with Big Bird and her dance routine with Jimmy Fallon, all part of her push against childhood obesity. Her “Let’s Move” tour today landed here in the produce section of a Walmart store in Springfield, Mo.

Following her appearance, the first lady took to Twitter to thank Walmart for “stepping up” and offering healthier foods and dropping prices on fresh produce.

As it turns out, there was a freak-out over Mrs. Obama’s visit to Walmart, but it came from opponents of the nation’s largest (and supposedly most evil) retailer.

A few people got some exercise and fresh air outside of the Walmart.
