Michelle Obama’s Tone-Deaf Tweet

Our economy is in the toilet — due largely to Obama’s terrible policies.  That’s why I thought the First Lady’s tweet showing her dogs eating off china and drinking out of crystal was a bit much!!

  • Amanda Suzanne Brooks

    They’re not eating off of it… No food or drink there. They are just sitting in the chairs. I’m not defending them. I dont care for them, but call a spade a spade.

    • Peter Paul

      Yeahhh sitting in chairs.. The one with the necklace that looks like you could pawn it and buy a house with it looks nice..

      • Donalbain

        Dogs on furniture?! Its the apocalypse!

        • Peter Paul

          Omg omg omg omg… What!!! Ahhhhhhbhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

        • John Garrett

          Dogcalypse!

          • Donalbain

            Soon there will be cats and dogs living together. In the WHITEHOUSE!

  • Peter Paul

    Idk I shake her tree a lot and I’m not blocked… Clearly you just posted

    • Peter Paul

      For example I sent their friend Julie some pretty nasty texts because they yanked my chain and I’m still around… So you, you must have done some shit

    • http://www.reverbnation.com/whytetyson Whyte Tyson

      No good sir! Her fb pages :p…I just got tired of her hating on abortions and posting ridiculous guilt trips for people that are not ready for children! Like we need more foodstamps for the babies having babies, and like there isn’t enough children in foster needing amazing homes! I told her I hope she gets pregnant Everytime she has sex!

      • Peter Paul

        Oh that’s not so bad.. Willow pissed me off so I got her friend Julie’s work number and sent her some texts… Actually I’m joking what you did is pretty bad.. On a more serious note Bristol supports adoption maybe I’m reading that wrong.. And you telling her she needs to get pregnant everytime she has sex crosses a line also.. Look in the mirror and see if that’s alright to say that to a female.. Would you tell your mom that… I may have my own personal problems with them but they are personal and they are my people..

      • Corrie Nance

        Really ! Maybe if people aren’t ready to have children they should use protection or not have sex. Why get pregnant in the first place? People need to grow up and get some smarts about themselves. If they are going to have sex they need to use protection , not use abortion as a birth control. Sad to think that it is ok to have an abortion because they aren’t ready for children. How about be smart about it and not get pregnant in the first place?

      • Jacqueline Gilmore Estrella

        Whyte…it’s a little more complicated than that…they are trying to save this child. It was wanted.

        • cheeriogirl

          How disrespectful of you to use this fetus as your personal political prop. Where is your compassion for the rights of this “child”, and his or her privacy?

  • Ross Basco

    I felt insulted when I saw this picture. In my opinion its hypocritical to say you are concern about people in poverty and then post aicture of your dogs sitting at a table with China, crystal and silver..

    • Brittany

      So am I not supposed to post pictures of my house, or my car, or my ipod, or anything else that people in poverty may not have. That doesn’t mean I don’t ‘care’ about them or am hypocritical. << this coming from a non-lib. I just don't see the big deal. But maybe that's because I frequently share ice cream cones with my dog and allow him to sit next to me on furniture while I'm eating. Oops.

  • Judi Anne Hood

    Dogs do not belong at the table. I find this distasteful. But class is not something you can buy, or bribe to be bestowed. To the Obama’s – whatever. Your mark in history has already been made. You will be replacing Hayes as the worst, that is without a doubt.

    • Choice

      Wow, do you ever look like Jodi Arias. Creepy.

      • Judi Anne Hood

        Seriously? You are somewhat bizarre.

    • Laura Renea

      If you close your eyes and pretend real hard, reality will conform to your delusions!
      Obama’s mark certainly has been made, but your kind is going the way of the dodo. Really, Hayes was the worst? lol Aren’t you forgetting someone? Because no amount of pretending will erase the solid fact that Bush was the worst, most dangerous President in history, and one of the most hated men in the history of the world, and for very good reasons. You might not remember, but we do. You want us to forget who caused all this pain we’re in as a nation
      But seriously you’re on the blog of a girl who made tons of money off of her unwed pregnancy and talking shit about her ex on tabloid shows. She REFUSES to make peace with the father of her child because he bruised her ego by moving on and finding someone worth marrying. To Bristol, being a Palin, what Tripp needs is insignificant and unimportant as long as she can use him as a weapon against his father. And you have the nerve to say the Obamas aren’t classy? You can guarantee they would not use their children to hurt each other. Bristol is a total narcissist just like her mom.

      • Judi Anne Hood

        Well the only thing to say to that is – you are also on her blog. Seriously. And why one must ask? Perhaps to spew your own brand of stupid? Who knows. At any rate, I refer to my original comment, dogs do not belong at the table. And to your mindless rant – of no value.

  • Choice

    So your mother is starting to tease again about running for Pres. You guys running low on money?

  • cant_believe_it

    Oh come on, Bristol should stop kidding herself!
    SHE didn’t think at all, she just went to twitchy, her favorite source to draw fresh venom and ugly, Obama-bashy things , and when she found something, she copied it here, to her cute little collage of hate and ignorance.
    Didn’t even bother to come up with a new headline…. what a talent!

  • Donna Kellum

    ROTFLMAO, It’s the regulations that are tanking our economy you idiot!!! Please stop posting on the adult site and go back to the uneducated and uninformed site and post your stupid comments. Jeezz we really have allot of dumb people in this country.
    When did Sarah Palin become someone who could do something about our economy? I didn’t realize she held office anywhere in this country anymore, it’s been like what, 5 years now? As for Bristol, what the heck does she have to do with the pic we are all looking at? Talk about dumb’n down Vgf.
    These comments fall up there where the NAACP comments fall. They don’t want voter ID laws, but in order to be in there peaceful protest you have to show ID. How funny is that?

    • Jacqueline Gilmore Estrella

      As a matter of fact, you can’t get the freebies unless you have an ID so this “voter suppression” is a bunch of hoo ha!

  • Elle Hernandez

    They need to stop spoiling there dogs and blowing americans money to fit there high standards of living. Please your broke “trillions in debt” sale the china and start paying your bills!!!

    • Michelle Erb

      You mean the china picked out by a Republican first lady for the first family’s personal use? It is not theirs to sell. Are they supposed to go out and buy Corel because you do not think a black first family should be able to use the same plates the white families used?

      The dogs are purposely faced away from the table, they are well behaved and have not touched any of the settings. So how is this worse than the Bush videos showing Barney and Ms Beasley surrounded by expensive Christmas presents?

      • Stephanie Gaspard

        Wow lady…where the hell do you see someone mentioning ANYTHING in the above comment,about “blacks” using the same China as the “whites”? Always always always gotta throw in the race card huh? And what the hell is wrong with cheaper dinnerware? I understand not using paper plates but DOGS eating outta Chinaware. What a effing joke!!! Its a damn dog ppl. What makes them so special that they need dogs sitting at their dinner table eating outta China? Ohhhh…that’s right! Its the FIRST BLACK FAMILY IN THE WHITE HOUSE!! NOW I GET IT! THEY ARE SPECIAL BECAUSR THEY ARE BLACK……Well lemme tell you something….if you really think about it,NO ONE needs to live that high on the horse!

        • Michelle Erb

          Have you seen the comments on the same post that Bristol chose to leave on her facebook page? They are so vile I will not repost them, but just read through ten of them and at least two will make a decent person sick. The same with Sarah Palin’s post about MLK day. If they did not want to attract racists with these type of posts, they would delete those comments (like they delete and ban anyone who politely posts anything remotely liberal). A decent person would also make a statement that they do not condone referring to the Obamas (including their daughters) as “Mooslims”, “dogs” “Apes “ghetto trash” Nwords” “thugs” “arrogant” etc, never mind the actual threats of violence toward the American President. .

          When so called liberals post racist/sexist comments they get called out for it by other liberals. How come not even one “fan” ever speaks out against the outright racist comments on the Palin pages?

          • Choice

            It’s the new racism Michelle. Veiled and ugly Stephanie just proved it.

          • cheeriogirl

            Not so veiled, but very ugly indeed, choice. Sadly, they are blinded by their hatred and jealousy of our President and his family, The rest of us, however, can see it quite easily.

        • Michelle Erb

          No one deserves to have a decently set table? They did not go out and buy crystal and china, that is what we have always had in the white house, because the President is a the leader of the freeworld and entertains world leaders and dignitaries. That is how it always have been. Are you saying if they started eating off free McDonald’s souvenir plates Palin fans would not be making racist comments about that?

          What reason can you possibly have to say they should not be using the china that Laura Bush picked out for the first family’s use?

    • TNBlueDot

      OMG! You need to stop reading/posting on facebook and read an actual book to learn a thing or two… your ignorance is showing.

  • Laurie Lane

    My My Aren’t We Defensive.

    • TNBlueDot

      Don’t think so… she’s just stating the obvious!

  • Peter Paul

    You are all missing bristols point… She said in the tweet, had Ann Romney done it there’s have been an uproar.. Double standard… Sarah palin won’t be running for president she could but her house isn’t in order.. If it is how it is now in 2 yrs she won’t.. But her even mentioning it puts peoples feet to the fire.. Her backed elected officials that will be running can’t start mudslinging about her… Rubio Cruz Paul even Christie … She’s playing the game right though

    • Peter Paul

      Thered**

      • Peter Paul

        It’ll be her extended family playing 2nd and third base.. Todd is the umpire Bristol is first base piper is catcher… Willow is old somewhere in left field looking at the foul line post and track is watching in the stands.. She won’t run if it was today.. It’ll be a no vote from track and a wtf are you doing willow turn around there is a baseball game and you have to vote.. So that’ll be by default a no vote.. That’s how it’ll go

      • Peter Paul

        Hmm must have misposted… Anyway again it’ll be a baseball game Todd is umpire her extended family is 2nd and third base piper is catcher or short stop.. Track is in the bleachers watching and willow is off somewhere in left field turned around looking at the foul line post.. It’ll be a yes from everyone a no from track, and a wtf willow turn around there’s a baseball game going on and by default that will be a no due to incoherence. So rest easy libs

    • Michelle Erb

      Well there was no uproar when the Bush family posted video after video of their dogs living it up in the lap of luxury. Because they were cute. Since these dogs are obviously facing away from the table – Bristol comes across as petty-yet again.

      • Peter Paul

        Again Bristol was comparing it to Ann Romney Michelle… You already know I stand in bristols corner on the argument/s..

    • TNBlueDot

      Yes, B’s tweet made the Romney comparison – just a thinly-veiled dig at the Obamas. Everyone knows the Palins will never accept them.

      The difference is, if these had been Ann Romney’s dogs, they’d be actually eating and drinking from that elegant table, as opposed to the cute posed snapshot of the Obama dogs. (Or they’d be in a cage on top of the car!)

      Palin may run for president long enough to get the low-information voters who follow her to resupply the dwindling funds in SarahPAC. But, then she’d have to quit because it’s the way she does things. She doesn’t want to be president – that’s too much work, for which she knows she’s unequipped. She couldn’t even be mayor of Wasilla, but had to hire a City Manager to do the actual work.

      • Peter Paul

        She’d quit? Rest easy lib she’s whipping up the conservative spirit.. Sarahpac dwindling.. Go get the financial statement that says that… Trust me she doesn’t need to run for pres to hustle the low information voters.. She’s hustling you because you have actually come to this site to present your point..

        • TNBlueDot

          Quitting is Sarah’s MO… it’s what she does best. Conservative spirit? LOL! If you knew how to locate and read the filings, you could see for yourself the state of SarahPAC. I’ve read it. Do your own homework, pal. Trust you? Haha! You don’t have a clue what you’re talking about! She’s hustling me? OMG – you’re just too funny.

          • Peter Paul

            Lol…

          • Peter Paul

            Hustling is more than materiality.. I could spin your gears all day.. You must be assuming I am unintelligent.. Well good day to you

      If an imaginary thing had happened, there would have been an imaginary uproar. Wonderful.

    Excellent comment, Michelle.

  • Harry Johnson

    Yo Bristol— you need to stay away from politics, you have NO idea what you’re talking about. Stay with the cute snapshots of your kids.

  • glennisw

    Wow, how mean-spirited, in addition to misrepresenting the state of the economy. The economy is booming for the wealthy, but what keeps it from helping the middle class and poor are Republican policies and obstruction.

    And you, Bristol – well, I know that you didn’t write this and your ghostwriter did, but it’s sad to see such a young woman allowing herself to be associated with such nastiness.

    • Billy W

  • TRINIDAD BROWN

    Wendy Miller you must be smoking crack with that comment about the economy being the best it’s ever been. Obama tried saying that recently and got laughed at. He even had to laugh himself. People losing their jobs, less working hours and paying more for their Healthcare. What’s so good about it.

  • Stephanie Gaspard

    Wow lady! You seriously have some issues! And such a nasty mouth. Next time write a book why dont ya???? I mean,damn! You seem to be pretty stupid yourself! I didn’t even need to read your entire mini book to come to that conclusion! The Obama’s are important and busy ppl….ha! Busy how?? Covering up the Benghazi attack??? Let’s see…oh,raising everyone’s health insurance? How about lying to everyone? Obama has been quoted and called out on his lies many,many,MANY times. If you like your doctor and health plan,you can keep it….etc etc etc. No wonder our economy and ppls lives are so screwed up. Thanks to idiot Obama supporters like YOU!!!! lemme tell you something you may or may not have noticed…..you calling someone the horrible things you’ve called the Palin’s,makes you look like a bitter,good for nothing b*#ch!!!! You have the nerve to say those things….you are NO better!!!!! Actually,worse! You are a pathetic,blind,sad little person. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE,never get into politics! Our world will really go down the shitter with the Obama’s AND you around. May as well kill us all if that’s the case! Honestly, you say the Palin’s have trolls…..I think you are one of Obama’s trolls! Say what you want about me but I’ll tell you something, I don’t support ANY politicians! I think they will ALL say whatever they need to,to get elected. So before you write your second half of your book….understand that! Everyone is b*#tching about the post of Obamas dogs at the table eating….no one has ever complained about Bush’s dogs…blah blah blah. I have a problem with ANYONE letting a dog eat at a table..out of China dinnerware! That’s just stupid,and quite ridiculous! I swear,ppls brains are up their asses sometimes! The Obamas act like their shit don’t stink. Well…NEWSFLASH!!!!! EVERYONE’S SHIT STINKS!! I can’t stand how they act like they are sooooo much better than everyone else….Obama with his-i can do whatever I want attitude. I’m sooooo glad that loser can no longer run for Presidency! Thank the good LORD for that. Now maybethings can go back to being good again. Now,come back and rant more when the Obamas actually do something worth a shit. Which will be the day they leave the White House!

    Totally agree! Too many people equate the nation’s economy with their personal economy. Anyone with more than one functioning brain cell knows the sad state of personal wealth in this country lies at the feet of the R’s and their lack of interest in the people of this country beyond their own circle.

    Regarding “Our economy is in the toilet — due largely to Obama’s terrible policies,”…

    Do you remember GOP VP Dick Cheney’s famous quote, “Reagan proved deficits don’t matter”?

    I’m curious who you think should have paid the costs for the two wars Bush lied us into, the costs of Medicare Part D, and the costs of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans among us? Not one of them were put into the Bush budget. Any true believer in fiscal conservatism would have taken personal responsibility for the costs of these wars and programs implemented under his direct orders and on his watch, and addressed payment of them from HIS White House, Alas, GWBush was no fiscal conservative, and he was not an honorable man. When he left the White House, he left the costs for HIS policies to be rolled over onto the next President’s administration to pay for. Talk about a con job!

    And amazingly enough, there were no demands for offsets by any of the Republican members of Congress back then for Bush’s expenditures. As a matter of fact, Bush himself told us to go shopping- THAT was his entire plan to pay for his wars. Funny how these very same Republican Congressmen today positively swoon at the very thought of spending even one dollar to actually help their fellow man, for things like extending unemployment or helping victims of natural disasters. Why such radically different responses under two different Presidents? What could possible explain their differing demands?

    We are currently recovering from the Bush embraced GOP policies of endless wars, and trickle down economics that support more tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy. Until the GOP stops obstructing our President, and forcing filibusters which require 60 votes for the Senate to get any bill passed, I’m afraid our recovery will continue to be impeded by these poor policies. In the meantime, OUR President has worked with business leaders, world leaders, as well as Congress to get many bills passed into law and our economy growing again. And true to form, the GOP is still blocking him at every possible junction. How very patriotic of them, no?

    BTW, I’m curious, what specific “terrible” policies of PBO’s are you referring to?

    I’m hoping enough Americans are as fed up as I am with the minority party insisting THEY be allowed to lead via obstruction. Please consider joining me in voting in a Democratic Congress to work with POTUS, to move our country FORWARD once again.

    Remember folks, we’re all in this together, for better, or worse, and your vote counts.

    It is bad enough that a site that it is supposed to be about spiritual matters allows Bristol to use it to spread racist and misogynist propaganda. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/bristolpalin/2014/02/abortion-kills-black-and-hispanic-babies/ http://www.patheos.com/blogs/bristolpalin/2014/01/dear-wendy-davis-you-can-have-a-job-and-kids/ But now you are moderating polite push back?

    NoMore, you’re pathetic. Perhaps it is YOU who needs to grow up. Bristol’s post was regarding the dogs looking like they were eating off china when there are so many people struggling to feed their families. She wasn’t saying that they were actually eating off of it but, that it was IN POOR TASTE to put it out there when so many are struggling. The cheap shot about her Mother was uncalled for.

  • TNBlueDot

    Geesh! Have you ever heard of a humorous photo op? Get over it.
    Poor taste? Poor taste is the classless moron Palin’s continually putting down the President and First Family. They’re so obviously pathetically jealous of Obama’s being in the White House they can’t stand it.

  • cheeriogirl

    That “ugly table” china was purchased by Laura Bush to the tune of $550,000, and it arrived two weeks before she and George W. moved out of the White House. If you have a problem with it, perhaps you could take it up with her?

    http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Politics/story?id=6593323

  • Michelle Erb

    It is not hers? She has never claimed to be Robin Hood? Seriously now you are knocking the Obamas for not giving away white house property?

    You do realize it would be wasteful to get rid of the stuff the Bushes spent a fortune on and buy even more new stuff? Not that there would be any reason to do that.

  • Michelle Erb

    So it is not about the dogs after all is it? You have a problem with this family using the white house china.

    Liberals do not want to “redistribute” wealth we want to stop the reverse distribution that has been going on through corporate welfare. Remember “trickle down”? Giving to the rich and hoping it makes its way down does not work.
    We have been subsidizing big oil and walmart to the tunes of billions of dollars every year. We want to get the 1%’s hands out of the pockets of the 99% and make them start paying their fair share of taxes for the resources that they overuse and abuse.

    Why do you want the Obamas to waste money by ordering new furniture for the white house?
