Get Your FLOTUS On

Right, so last week we heard an endless stream of hateful and wackadoodle nonsense from politicians. Thank goodness the Democratic National Convention starts this weekend as an antidote to all that venomous bile. Does the party have issues, sure – politics is never perfect and is always a process. But my vote will invariably go to the people who fight for my rights instead of fear my very existence.

So tonight I can’t wait to see more friendly, thoughful folks talking to me from my TV screen instead of the fact-free free-for-all that was last week. Among them tonight will be none other than the FLOTUS with the most-us, Michelle Obama. I can’t tell you how much I am going to miss the Obamas when they leave office. They have been such a refreshing, wonderful, empowering presence for this country. And, come on, they’re so cool. They’re endlessly cool. I mean, what other First Lady could you see doing Carpool Karaoke to “Get Ur Freak On” with Missy Elliott herself?

Even if you watched it already this is one of those guaranteed mood lifters. And with each repeat watch it’s fun to spot the Secret Service vehicles tailing them in the background. HOLLA!

p.s. In case you missed it, or just want to feel chills again, here is Michelle's speech last night at the Democratic National Convention. My God, am I going to miss her as First Lady. We are so lucky to have had her, we really are.

The Obamas were great and it was an administration with no scandals! I'm gonna miss them a lot. Hope we see more of them in the future.
I really think Michelle would make a great senator.
