Michelle Obama to visit "Live with Kelly and Michael"

WHITE HOUSE (CNN)—First Lady Michelle Obama will hit the daytime talkshows once again in the final weeks of her husband’s re-election campaign.

Mrs. Obama will tape an interview with “Live with Kelly and Michael” on Wednesday in New York. Co-host Kelly Ripa announced on Monday’s show that the segment will air on Friday.

Her appearance will be the First Lady’s second time on the show this year. In June, she appeared on the show to promote her book American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America . She also surprised a jump-roping team with a demonstration of her double-dutch jump-roping skills.

Republican candidate Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, appeared on the show in September where they talked about reality TV star Snooki, his pet peeve of Ann’s method of squeezing toothpaste out of the tube, and an embarrassing moment of walking in on former President George W. Bush receiving a massage during a White House visit.

Last week, Mrs. Romney co-hosted ABC’s “Good Morning America” with George Stephanopolous where she made her famous Welsh cakes and interviewed a thoroughbred rider from the Paralympics games in London in August.

    Another fluff piece from CNN, I foresee Crowley favoring Obama at the debate. Even though voters submit the questions she gets to select them. What do you want to bet there's nothing about Libya asked at the debate?

      Since it is a foreign policy debate, I bet Libya will be the first thing discussed. I hope you are not one of those who really think that the President has something to hide and all republicans want to do is just get the facts. Republicans are very publicly trying to destroy this president. I am an independent and I find this deplorable.

      Since day one of the President Obama's administration the republicans have made no honest effort to work with him. What they don't care about is the American people who suffer because of what they are doing.. I can't vote for Romney because republicans have not treated Obama fairly, and I can't vote for any other republican for that same reason.

        You are obviously blacque and a moron to boot. Nobody has treated the inept, clueless sock puppet badly – he's brought it all on himself.

        Are you kidding? You don't remember the first bipartisan meeting and his very public slap down of John McCain. "Elections have consequences and I won" he had control of the house and senate and didn't feel the need for any bipartisan work at all. We need a leader

        Anyone who isn't a bigot can easily agree with you. Calling you names only confirms the lack of reason and inteligence from your critics. I've never met a bigot who would admit to their racism. Karen Faye is the best example yet.

      There are plenty of subtle ways Romney can bring Libya into the fray - and you can bet Obama will swing the conversation against Romney and Bain even if they discuss Cheetos. The corrupt Chicago violin case carrying thug will probably have "plants" throughout the hall as well. He can't win anything unless it's rigged.

        You are VERY sick and a prime example of what's wrong with America. Your 1950s mentality is void of any facts reason or even common sense. Rush and Sean have brainwashed you to a point that is totally hopelessness.

      Are we in trouble or what?
      Tom Selkis' (Latham Ford) Facebook..........
      True story yesterday at the dealership.....

      "I'll try to make this as short and to the point as I can. One of my
      salesmen here had a woman in his office yesterday wanting to lease a brand new Focus. As he was reviewing her credit app with her he noticed she was on social security disability. He said to her you don't look like you're disabled and unable to work. She said "well I'm really not, I could work if I wanted to but I make more now then I did when I was working and got hurt" (non-disabling injury).She said the gov't sends her $1500.00 a month in 1 check; she gets $700.00 a month on an EBTcard (food stamps), and $800.00 a month for rent. Oh yeah and 250 mins
      free on her phone. That is just south of $3500.00 a month.When she was working she was taking home about $330.00 per week. Do the math and then ask yourself: "why the hell should she go back to work?" If you multiply that by millions of people you start to realize the scope of the problem we face as a country. Once the socialists have 51% of the population in that same scenerio we are finished........ and we are real, real close. The question is: when do we cross that threshold if we haven't already?
      She didn't lease the Focus here because the dealer down the road beat our deal by $10.00month. Glad to know she is so frugal with her hard earned money!

        Someone is lying big time, either you or your co-worker. NO-WAY she is getting 1500.00 from SS anything.
        What is sad is that there are people out here that will not think past this lie and really believe that your lie is somehow the POTUS fault. GOD HELP US

      • Pinsey

        First of all, I think what she told you was an outright lie because she wanted to be able to lease the vehicle.
        In a dealership Finance Office you've got two liars: The first one is the Finance Man filling the customer with lies to try and talk people into leasing a vehicle, instead of outright purchasing the car (more money is taken in by the dealer when a customer leases.) The second is the customer who tries to "puff up" their income levels to quality to purchase or lease. So, I don't believe either one of you. Why even post such nonsense. Makes YOU look bad.

    In the East Room, Mrs. Obama answered questions from 8 to 11 year old kids. The first lady said ‘Song of Solomon’ by Toni Morrison was her first favorite book.

    Here are a few of the more offensive lines from the book.

    Chapter 3,
    He ain't old enough to have wet dreams.
    Cause he whistled at some Scarlet O'Hara cu*t.
    Knocked him into the f*** radiator.
    A 12 year old is given liquor. "He was trying to get as drunk as possible as rapidly as possible."
    Who care if he f*** a white girl?
    Crackers care.
    Yeah, well, f*** Till.
    Nigg**s get their names the way they get everything else...
    Dumb ass.
    Like a f***'n sheep.

    Chapter 4,
    Watch the lump grow in a little boys pants.
    17 year old having sex with 36 year old cousin.
    Young boy strangled with rope and his head bashed in.

    I am saddened that a first lady of the United States would mention such a book to young children. This book contains murder, revenge, teenage sex, rape, 12 year old drinking, murder and the 'N' word. One character, Guitar, lies in his bed, figuring out how to bomb a white church and kill four little white girls. Throughout the novel, white creatures are symbols of impending harm or wrongdoing. Could she not think of anything better than this racist, foul language, hate-filled book?

    The book question is asked and answered at 30:20 into the video. Notice how young the kids are.

      How could this be anyone's favorite book? The media and the lefties will of course not even care, they're too busy worshipping.

      I do agree that she could have left that one out, but it was one of her favrites and I doubt any of the chldren's parents are going to let them read it. That is where parental control becomes necessary. I have read "Song of Solomon" and it is a good book.

      • Jay in NC

        I think it is as if she had said, oh, kids, now you have had orange juice, and apple juice, but let me tell you my favorite drink, rum and coke. It is my favorite drink. I drank the bottle completely. It would be inappropriate for a teacher it is defiantly so for the First Lady.

        These were Government Employee's kids. Imagine if your boss told your 8 year old about this book. Would you feel the same?

      This book is a classic story written by an Amazing American writer and it depicted SOME of the atrocities black Americans had to endure by caucasion people in Abusive power at that time. What is really sad that is it really happened. Which Jay I am sure you don't want to go over because it was a long time ago and it didn't happen to your ancesters. Why don't you try to be MORE inclusive and respectful of something you just don't understand. Did you even READ the book?.

        When all else fails play the race card, well im sick of it, the pres has been totally inept in doing anything besides blame everyone else. please come off your high horse and look around it is getting worse and oblunder does not have a clue what to do

        October 16, 2012 at 2:21 pm |
      • Jay in NC

        Lette, my complaint is not if the book should exist or not. It is that the First Lady should not have suggested it to 8 and 11 year old children.

        Just because I find the language in the book offensives does not mean that I am a racist. It is funny because you assume that I am Caucasian, therefore would not that make you the racist?

        I have read the book. Did you not read my original post and the list of some of the offensives quotes? At what age do you think it is appropriate to read?

    More free election ads for Obama. Between the $300 million in untraceable donations from overseas and the free ads he gets by letting the TV industry fawn all over him he is going to set records.

      EnuffAlready–you appear to be sour grape person who is one of Romney's 47%–rich people have the same attitude about you as you have about the President- not worthy

    And the call her michelle O...sounds like Jackie O...mz obama just isn't anywhere near the class and substance of Jackie Kennedy...not even in the hunt intellectually or in any other way. She (mz obama) is a south side chicago brat raised in a racist and marxist activist family...and it shows. We need to ake our White House back and put in the hands of adults.

    The Obama's have done the talk show rounds more than I think is normal for a sitting president and his wife. At we know when he's out of the White House they will have a job in Hollywood hosting some left wing talk show. They will surely have some weekly thing to ban for our own good. Yikes. Really I hope that when Romney wins the Presidential role, he is less apt to whore himself out so easily to every flippin talk show out there. Truly, I believe a statesman should make him self less familiar and smarmy. Just my opinion.
