Michelle Obama’s Hair was LAID Like ObamaCare at the DNC and I Am Here for Her!

First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, came to the Democratic National Convention to SLAY and she left many in her wake as she murked that speech she had to give effortlessly. And she had me eating out the palm of her hands.

Many other places will talk about what Michelle’s speech was about. I’m here to talk about how she came looking as FAHN as she wanted to look. Let me proceed.

Michelle Obama DNC 2012

You see Michelle coming up there looking like a stone cold FOX??? You SEE IT.

First of all, FLOTUS’ hair was LAID like ObamaCare! That coiffure was SILKY dinnamug! It looked like it felt like what I imagine Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak did. All light and airy yet still substantive. Re-read that sentence if you need be. Don’t argue with me about its’ validity either. Michelle’s hair had more body than Serena Williams. It was stacked! This is what everyone who gets a perm THINKS their hair will look like. But their follicles might don’t make it so well. OOP.

Then, we must talk about how Michelle’s face was BEAT like God’s favorite percussion instrument. It was BEAT like a choir’s favorite drum with the tambourine on the side. YES GAWD! Them eyebrows are SNATCHED like the wigs of the Republicans after Chellie O got off that DNC stage. I mean, slightly TOO snatched but it’s cool.

And then that dress??? THAT. GAHTDAMB. DRESS. Look at the whole thing:

FLOTUS Michelle Obama DNC Tracy Reese

COME ON, SOMEBODY!!! The FLOTUS was rocking a custom Tracy Reese dress and it gave me EVERYTHING! Is that silk fabric? Look at how it falls on her and shows off them awesome arms? YOU. SEE. IT. I give Tracy Reese ALL of the props because her designs are just amazing. I’ve rocked 2 of her dresses before and they made me feel so pretty. When I grow up, my closet will be FULL of her work. Hear my vain cry, Universe!

But yeah, the FLOTUS’ glamour squad came super correct tonight (as they usually do). I’ma do a church clap for that team because they keep her winning.

Besides what she looked like, Michelle’s speech was just captivating and moving. I was already a groupie and now I’m a stan. When she said “That is the story of this country. The story of unwavering hope grounded in unyielding struggle” I surely stood up in my living room and did an invisible tambourine shake.

She also talked about how at one point, her and President Barack Obama’s student loans were more than their mortgage. She basically said “Sallie Mae ain’t bout that life. But we made it through. LOOK AT GAWD!” *dances in the pews* COME ON SOMEBODY!

And at the end, she was on the verge of tears as she spoke and I was about to slide off my couch! That woman was giving me tea for my fever on that stage! As she finished and walked off, I was already rolling around on my carpet!

What I loved the most though was that she left the stage as Beyonce played! THAT IS HOW YOU DROP THE MIC! CHIEF REVEREND DEACONNESS HEAD OF THE USHER BOARD MICHELLE OBAMA, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!! GET ON YOUR DAMB FEET!!! Chile I almost caught the Juanita Bynum holy ghost! hfehfoiefjpfjewpofkofkqwffnioejf SHOULDACOMEINAHONDA!

I love Michelle Obama. I am such a fangirl for her. She came on that stage and took NO damb prisoners and I am HERE FOR HER ALLATAHM!

Did y’all watch? Was I the only one at home getting my LIFE? I doubt I was because Twitter went NUTS. Whatcha think of her #alphet?

P.S. This picture was tweeted from the @BarackObama account right after, of the First Family watching their matriarch do her thing and bring down the house!

First family watching michelle obama

The First Family has my doggone heart! I CAN’T TAKE THE CUTENESS!

    First Lady’s hair is laid like freedom, patriotism and apple pie. God must be pleased with Michelle’s hair and her stylist…with every head turn, it bounces and shines for His glory.She must deep condition and seal her hair with the Oil from the “Alabaster box”.

    Whos paying for all this designer and couture…. you blind dumbass taxpayers, when you’ve got people who cant pay for health care…….really good on you Obamas……keep on spending and making fools of those who follow you

      Yes, it’s very important to go in on how much tax money is spent on Mrs. Obama. Because we all know that all the First Ladies before her styled their own hair using Suave products, did their own makeup using Wet’N’Wild, wore all the same clothes they had already owned before their husbands started campaigning, and paid for it all using money they saved up from their previous jobs as a schoolteachers, bank tellers, and medical assistants.
      Okie dokes!

      The Obamas are millionaires. Barack Obama is NY Times best selling author, former lawyer. Michelle worked for a prestigious law firm, plus the fact the designer give away their clothes to be worm , that’s where they get it.

    Lady O gets all the love for her fabulous fit arms, but can we take a minute and meditate on that beautiful waist to hip ratio?
    I know some haters who know nothing at all about body types want to talk trash about her “large posterior” or whatever — but WOW! That waistline is epic.
    Paired with her generous hips – whose size has more to do with her skeletal frame than with her eating ribs (did you hear that, Plush Limbaugh?) – her proportions are amazing.
    At the risk of sounding borderline disrespectful (which is not my intention) – it’s a wonder that the 20 year marriage only produced two children.
