    What a pushy, hypocritical grandee. I’d rather she fly her fat rear to Spain than throw that junk-in-the-trunk First “Lady” weight around.

  • Oil Can Harry

    Q: Why would Her Majesty visit the USDA- those infamous racists who refused to give loans to farmers who were black, hispanic, female, gay or Samoan?

    A: Because Michelle and her hubby know the discrimination charges were make believe. That’s why not a single USDA staffer was charged- let alone found guilty- of denying loans due to prejudice.

    It was “discrimination” without a discriminator!

      Billions of dollars in reparations from eeevil YT.

      That’s right! Evil and exploitive fairy tales used to legally rob the White taxpayer into more ‘gibs me dat’ for the Black non-deserving non-producers. It makes you ponder what will happen when the Whites are broke and unable to pay the legal ‘blackmail’ to ‘minorities’. Oh, wait….isn’t that being demonstrated in South Africa?
      And just what is this sub-intelligent woman doing at the USDA? She needs to be going to the ghetto of Detroit, where people spend their government food allowances on McDonald’s and junk food….The Black problems are always EVERYONE’S problems.

  • IstvanIN

    She is the President’s wife, regardless of what we think of either of them, so enhanced security would seem normal. My question would be why is she visiting a USDA office?

    • Katherine McChesney

      Correction: She is the wife of the fraud in the White House.

    • Hirschibold

      Reciprocity is a fundamental rule of human interactions. I know liberals who celebrated when Regan got shot. It’s their right to do that, but it is then also my right to say that Michelle Obama looks like Terry Crews in the movie Idiocracy.

    • Flaxen-headed Strumpet

      To advise all them rayciss USDA bureaucrats to prepare for Pigford V.

    • The__Bobster

      The First Wookie wanted some free gubmint cheese?

  • Katherine McChesney

    All for a fake flotus who looks like a tranny.

    • Bill

      And I guarantee any photo ops pics she has taken she will be surrounded by all blacks. Always happens that way. Goes to predominantly black schools, churches, etc etc etc. She just can’t seem to stand being around any whites. Gee. Do you think it could be because she absolutely HATES whites?

  • bigone4u

    With Moochelle, it’s always about her. She’ll get a chance to preach her message to eat healthy, while requiring a very wide chair for her own seating. As Marie Antoniette said, “The people have no bread? Let them eat cake.”

    • Tim

      After seeing the old movie I did some research on Marie Antoinette. The whole cake thing was a Nixon style dirty tricks campaign by revolutionary leftists to discredit her as being out of touch…

      • bigone4u

        It wouldn’t surprise me a bit. The revolutionaries turned out to be a mighty mean bunch.

        • Bill

          And turned the guillotine on themselves once they’d killed all the evil nobility. Libs, take warning. You may eradicate most of the white race, but that blade will be turned on you once it’s done and by your own kind. And then the blacks you love so much will finish off what’s left of you. That’s called divine justice.

  • 2. Court 5 will be closed all day. Automobiles, motorcycles and bicycles must be removed by close of business Thursday, May 2, 2013.
    The bicycle bomb?
    Their egos really are gigantic.

      Why insult Ewing? Besides, Michelle’s mustache is usually photo-shopped or pancaked out.

    “1. All employees, visitors, and contractors must wear their USDA identification badge in plain view at all times.”

    Wait, I thought it was raciss to ax for ID”s.

  • Homo_Occidentalis

    This reminds me of the terrified Imperial officer from Star Wars episode VI upon learning of the Emperor’s impending inspection of the incomplete Death Star: “The emperor is coming here?”
    You just know that these bureaucrats will get even less work done than usual. Why not just furlough them for Moochelle’s visit?

  • MBlanc46

    It’s not just the Obamas. We started treating the president as an emperor decades ago. The pres is just an employee but we treat him as if he were a potentate.

  • WR_the_realist

    This is an example of our increasingly imperial presidency, which just gets worse from one administration to the next, regardless of race or political party. When a government engages in endless war overseas and carries out policies hated at home it creates a lot of enemies, and so top politicians spend a great amount of our tax dollars defending themselves from the rest of us.
