If you think Meghan and Harry and Oprah aren’t coordinating messaging with the Obamas, well... – You might want to think again, and you might want to include the Bushes, too. In an interview conducted by the laughably amateurish Jenna Bush on the Today show, Michelle Obama joined in the hurling of racism charges at the English Royal Family, saying she was not surprised by Meghan’s unsupported allegations.
Thus does a former first lady of the United States of America once again wander into the muck of pop culture, in the process defaming the monarchy of America’s closest ally.

From the story at The Hill:
Former first lady Michelle Obama says she’s not shocked to hear Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, speak out about claims of racism within Britain’s royal family, saying that race “isn’t a new construct in this world for people of color.”
“It wasn’t a complete surprise to hear her feelings and have them articulated,” Obama told Jenna Bush Hager in a Tuesday interview on NBC’s “Today” show when asked about Meghan’s allegations.
Interestingly, Michell’s not-so-subtle insult targeting Queen Elizabeth stands in direct contrast to a little anecdote she tells in her 2018 autobiography about the Queen behaving in a decidedly un-racist manner when they met:
In her 2018 memoir, “Becoming,” Obama shared how she felt nervous “coming face-to-face with an honest-to-goodness icon,” but quickly found the queen to be “warm and personable” as the two bonded over uncomfortable footwear.
“I confessed then to the Queen that my feet were hurting. She confessed that hers hurt, too. We looked at each other then with identical expressions, like, ‘When is all this standing around with world leaders going to finally wrap up?’ And with this, she busted out with a fully charming laugh,” Obama recalled in her book.
Yes, truly, only a white supremacist racist Queen would chuckle along with a Black American first lady when she says her feet hurt.
Look, for those of you sitting there thinking, hey, Michelle was asked the question, she just answered it, just stop it. First of all, Michelle Obama doesn’t just willy nilly walk onto a set or pick up a ringing phone and talk to reporters unprepared. She and Jenna Bush unquestionably communicated prior to that interview, so that Michelle could carefully prepare answers to the questions she knew would be asked. It is entirely likely, in fact, that Michelle herself actually suggested that line of questioning so that she could roll out that specific answer. In fact, it is entirely likely that that specific Q and A was the motivating reason for the interview to be held.
That is how these interviews work for Democrats.
Second, even if the question about Megs and Harry had come as a spur-of-the-moment surprise, the only proper answer for any former first lady with a shred of decorum and sense of her status in society and the weight her words carry would be to say she has no comment on a private matter involving the British Royal Family. This was a pre-planned, intentional exercise designed to keep feeding the engine of anger over “racism” in our society, whether real or made up out of whole cloth, as is likely the case with Harry and Meghan. This is what the Obamas have always done and will continue to do.
Yes, it’s despicable. Yes, it’s digraceful. Yes, it’s depraved, demented and disgusting. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here.
Speaking of pre-prepared questions and answers… – Oh, boy, Jen Psaki said yesterday that our national Sock Puppet-in-Chief is gonna do an actual press conference on March 25, the first of his presidency:
President Biden will hold his first formal news conference on March 25, White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced today.https://t.co/ftXYumUHnD

From the story at Politico:
President Joe Biden will hold his first formal news conference on March 25, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday.
While the president has periodically taken questions from reporters, Biden has been under increased fire from conservative news outlets — as well as some political allies — for waiting longer than some predecessors to hold a media availability after taking office.
Should the March 25 date hold, Biden will have gone more than two full months without holding a news conference to start his tenure. Recent past presidents have typically done so within their first month as a good-faith gesture toward the free press.
Note the outright lie Politico pushes to provide cover for China Joe even in such a simple story: That he has “periodically taken questions from reporters.” This is simply false. Biden has occasionally listened to a question as he is exiting the scene, but he has never, not one time, provided substantive answers to any real media questions across his first 8 weeks in office. Now Psaki claim he will actually hold a “press conference,” but no one should expect it to resemble the wide-ranging, off-the-cuff affairs conducted almost daily by President Donald Trump.
Like Michelle’s interview with Jenna, this will all be carefully staged well in advance.
Greg Kelly captures the likely pre-coordination between Psaki and her lapdog pals perfectly in this tweet:
MEMO FROM THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS OFFICE: please submit to us your questions for @joebiden’s first press conference. @PressSec JEN PSAKI will get back to you about whether or not your questions was approved. Thank you “reporters”!!!

Exactly. This will be a pretend presser with only pre-approved questions posed by pre-selected reporters. This human sock puppet is not capable of doing otherwise.
And guess who knows the truth of that? – A majority of Americans, that’s who. Yes, friends and neighbors, a new poll finds that a majority of voters now believe China Joe Potato Head Biden is unfit to hold the office of the presidency:

From the story at JustTheNews.com:
Less than half of all U.S. voters think President Biden is fit to hold the office of the presidency, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.
Asked about a series of recent gaffes Biden has undergone during the course of his duties, those survey were invited to offer their opinion as to Biden’s fitness for the office of the presidency.
Forty-seven percent said the president is “fine and fit for office and the gaffes don’t concern me,” while 40% said they were “concerned President Biden is suffering from some sort of condition that contributes to the gaffes.”
Honestly, I just cannot even fathom what sort of drugs the 40% of Americans who actually think this guy is capable of doing the most demanding job on the planet are taking. It’s truly mind-boggling.
Meanwhile, America’s Last Real President wants you to go get your shots. – The media, which toadies for the Democrats 100% of the time, will of course characterize this as President Donald Trump responding to Little Menace to Society Anthony Fauci’s statement Sunday urging him to advise his followers to go get one of the various COVID vaccines. The allegation that Republicans have been slower to be vaccinated than Democrats has served as a convenient talking point for Fauci in his never-ending hyper-partisan TV rhetoric.
In an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News last night, Trump did indeed urge his voters to be vaccinated:
“I would recommend it and I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it,” the President said. “And a lot of those people voted for me, frankly. But you know, again, we have our freedoms and we have to live by that. And I agree with that also. But it’s a great vaccine. It’s a safe vaccine and it’s something that works.”
Now, was that a response to the Little Menace to Society, or was it a President whose Operation Warp Speed is directly responsible for these vaccines becoming publicly available in a record short time that even Fauci himself was saying was essentially impossible last summer?
Personally, I’ll go with the latter. Trump is a notably prideful man with a huge ego, and he is rightly proud of what his administration – not China Joe’s – was able to achieve with these vaccines.
So, if you’ve been waiting to see what America’s last real President had to say on the matter, now you have it. Go get your damn shots.
That is all.
