Michelle Obama Is A Normal Person Who Shops At Target: Photos

by | 1st, October 2011

WHAT odds that when Michelle Obama went along to a supermarket to stock up on vaseline, chips and dental floss an Associated Press photographer should just happen to be there to capture her ordinariness in high resolution images? Given that just looking at the Obamas with anything less than adulation in your dewey eyes is likely to get you ten years in solitary and shot in the face, it seems pretty odd that a stranger should get close enough to point a large black metal device in her direction.

But, then, Obama might well recognise Charles Dharapak, the AP’s photographer in the aisles, from his beat at the White House.

This is Michelle Obama who told Oprah Winfrey:

“I can’t go to Target and walk around. I guess I could but it would mess up everyone else’s shopping experience.”

Only, she can. It turns out that Michelle Obama is just like the rest of you losers – but not like those sexy people of Walmart. That would be ridiculous…
