InstaFLOTUS! Michelle Obama posts first Instagram; Selfie fail?

My first instagram! So inspired and so impressed by these extraordinary young women. -mo #FLOTUSinAfrica

So, it’s come to this: Michelle Obama is now on Instagram.


Bless your heart.

Journos and media outlets swooned.

Sigh. Citizens weren’t as impressed.

And win:

Heh. Get with the program, Mrs. Obama! Selfies and photobombs are all the rage.

    Moosechelle figured out the interwebz.

    I can now die a happy man.

    • mickeyco

      I’d rather she die a happy woman.

      • James Artre

        I second that notion.

      • James Artre

        I second that notion.

    Why is there so much love for the Obamas?? Even in Australia, people fawn over them like they’re gods. They seem fake.

    • LinTaylor

      They’re extremely fake, but they managed to present an image that people find appealing so they get all the attention and praise lavished upon them.

      • SK Turner

        They are trash. He is a treasonous traitor and intentionally destroying our country yet his followers are totally blind. He is highly hated by just about half this country.

        • Alexia Asbury

          And about 80% of the other half are just plain ignorant and uninvolved with what is going on around them! But you can bet that they know what their fav stars are up to, dumbasses! The rest of them are vile communists!

    • Armando

      As a community organizer you need to be loved by the people to get any legitimacy. There are a few tricks, and the Obamas are the best at all of them. They have won two elections without much substance by applying them, and the GOP doesn’t know how to contrarrest them. They take the baits and fall on the same tricks again and again.

      • Alexia Asbury

        The GOP has the “weakness” of not being good liars!! I know that is actually a good thing. Well, it usually is–except when it comes to politics. Some people, especially on the Left, are fine with being snowed, or they’re just too stupid to figure out when they’re being duped! The conservatives and Republicans also have true class, morals, and decency which the Liberal Democrats severely lack!! And some of these RINOs certainly make an art of compromising to the point of overdoing it on issues that are vital to our freedom and the vitality of our country and constitution!! I only trust real conservatives and believe everyone of them should be thoroughly vetted to prevent “trojan jackasses”!! Yes, jackasses, as in braying Democrat donkeys, not horses.

    • mickeyco

      Not anymore so much. Did you see the youtube of the Irish congresswoman yelling about the way fellow politicians had fawned over Michelle and what a loser she and O are? Beautiful to see.

        I had been in Ireland when they were there. The irish folks we spoke with just laughed at Americans. They were especially upset that a lot of historical places were closed up several days prior to the “family visit”. And really upset about Trinity College being closed down for their viewing of the book of kells. People were upset becaus she came in and took over an entire hotel forcing people to find other lodging.

    • Alexia Asbury

      He sure seems to have lost some of that glow as far as I can see. With a turnout of less than 4500 in Germany as compared to a blast of 200,000 that he magically captivated into showing up in ’08! Add to that a big dis from the Irish! And a blatant show of disrespect from Putin! Let’s not forget the editor of a foreign paper bemoaning the idiots who voted for Obama as being more troublesome than the actual BO presidency! And there are more. But, worse yet, here at home, he has lost quite a chunk of popularity where his pop and unpop numbers have done an actual flip! If I were a black person living in Detroit and elsewhere, I would be asking what has he done lately to better urban life! Not a damn thing–that’s what!! But he sure has the money, which he takes from us through taxes, to fly all over the globe when the average family can’t muster enough dough to take even just a weekend trip!! I think he’s losing it!

      • Jean Gray

        He lost it a long time ago as far as I’m concerned. I would NEVER vote for someone who seemingly “came from nowhere” and got all the votes he got? Lots of bribery and union thugs intimidating people at the poles, not to mention the black panthers whom Eric Holder “let off the hook”. This whole administration should be imprisoned!

    • Dutra

      The same reason people want autographs from scumbag Hollywood types.

    • Jean Gray

      They ARE fake. Everything about them is fake and lies!

    • Cecelia Henderson

      The Obama’s pay well. Most of the people in the background were bought and paid for.

  • gracepmc

    Shock and awe!

  • philoise65

    “Oh, the humanity…” of it all.

  • SansMercy

    Bonus, we can leave comments in her feed. Hmmmm….

  • Marcy Cook

    I’m shocked that her sour faced daughter actually smiled in that picture.

    • Emily B

      Wouldn’t you be sour-faced if they were your parents? 😉

    • Lisa Dean

      IKR – did you see the pics of McSourPuss in Ireland? They meet an ancestor and she frowns, they go to a special performance of Irish dancing and she crosses her eyes.

      • Marcy Cook

        I did see that. Typical obama ingrates.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Why aren’t any of the other women, but one or 2, smiling? Some of them look as if they’d rather be elsewhere.

      • mickeyco

        Wouldn’t you?

      • Marcy Cook

        They probably figured out the obama mess faster than most people in this country.

  • AmericanMom

    Which million dollars of that $100 million dollar Africa trip is she toasting?

  • grais

    Does she explain what’s extraordinary or impressive about them?

    • Jim Denney

      Isn’t it obvious? Those are HER kind of people; the right color, the proper political ideology, and they got together enough OPM through foreign aid to put on this totally awesome party for Barack & his queen!

    • rambler

      They got up in the morning and went to meet her. Nuff said.

  • brando

    Just like the Roman Republic, the Executive branch in this country has evolved into a position of luxury and power.

  • HARP2

    Which one is the mooch ?

  • rambler

    She may have been impressed, but it looks like those young women were not. Way to go Shelly! Sour pusses of the world unite!

  • $27789750

    OKAY…someone please tell me what an Instagram is..just looks like an ordinary photo to me.

  • IronButterfly

    The Obama girls look a little white……………oh my.

    • Raymond Truesdale

      Check the blood line!!! Is he BLACK????????

  • DeadBuffalo Blog

    Wait ’til she figures out myspace.

  • yourmamatoo

    For shame.
    I thought sequester was supposed to make everyone suffer.
    That is what her hubby said.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      You care enough to comment, apparently.

      • James Artre

        …and nothing else.

        • Bathing Suit Area

          That’s twice now. I think you care more than you admit.

          • James Artre

            Are you touching my bathing suit area with these replies?

          • Bathing Suit Area

            I am not your bathing suit area.

  • anatated

    Looking at the faces of these women? They are not impressed with Moochie

  • SK Turner

    I am so angry about this trip while our soldiers only get two meals a day and then they are cold ones because Obama says the country can’t afford to feed them. The Obama dynasty is who we can’t afford to feed with their chronic mega vacations and her outlandish clothing and staff allowance.

  • unknown

    Nice to see Michelle still cares about the “little people”

    • mickeyco

      Foreign little people, Nick.

  • Spike Bement

    I know I’m excited…….I just got a thrill up my leg.

    • mickeyco

      Better double check, Spike.

  • Kinda

    I bet her “assistants” are posting for her.

  • LissaKay

    Oh it coulda been, shoulda been … THIS:

    • lainer51

      just tossed my cookies

  • Cruz2016!!!

    Just wondering what makes these women extraordinary….their skin color? Has she ever mentioned an extraordinary white women in a photo…ever? We all know that will never happen…..

  • Mom2Ian03

    Who cares? I sure as hell don’t!

  • AtomicMug

    OMG! OMG! OMG! :)))))) OMG! FIRST INSTAGRAM!!! OMG!!! :) ;)))))

  • dnl
  • Raymond Truesdale

    Tell her to PLEASE stay there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jean Gray

    Too bad she has no class whatsoever!

  • J.B.

    Did moose learn a new trick today? Oh give her a treat. Wish she’d learn magic and disappear.

  • right_on

    I can’t wait to see the FLOTUS in traditional African-American tribal garb…Nah…doesn’t go with the accoutrements. (Sheila Jackson Lee…eat your heart out!)


    Is it a coincidence that most of the women there look miserable?

    • Zach Smith

      They were probably interrogated and strip searched by the Secret Service.

  • Zach Smith

    Can someone tell me how this unfathomably expensive trip helps Americans in any way?

  • PJemmott

    Can she just stay there or just vanish
