Poor, poor Michelle Obama. She may appear to have a pretty sweet life, what with all the wining and dining and traveling and hobnobbing with celebs, but she’s still suffering. Oh, how she suffers!

In an interview with People, Mrs. Obama bravely shared a story about the racism she’s faced as First Lady. We suggest having a box of tissues handy.

“I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new.”

First Ladies aren’t supposed to help people!

Clearly, racism was at work here.

Oh, the humanity!

There’s simply no other explanation.

Nice try, but that trick won’t work! What FLOTUS needs is a heartfelt apology.

That’s more like it.

Don’t we all?

Ugh. All due respect to FLOTUS, get over it.

Heh.

Parting food for thought:

Technically it was a few weeks ago, but yes. Yes he did.

Indeed. But hey, at least he didn’t call them tall!

Update:

Anyone up for a flashback?

Ridiculous.
