Michelle Obama Says People Don’t ‘Expect’ Her At PetCo

I suppose it's possible Michelle Obama took Bo to PetCo—there are two in the District—but I'm not sure I buy her reasoning for why no one noticed. She told Today: "I actually took Bo to Petco and the cashier asked me, 'Oh, what kind of dog is that?' I said, 'a Portuguese water dog.' He didn't recognize us because he didn't expect that we would be in Petco."

I don't know what people 'expect' but if a 5'11" black lady showed up at my cash register in Cleveland Park with Secret Service in tow, I'd sure as heck take notice, no matter what kind of dog she had. I can't help but think she's doing some damage control after all of the accusations that the photos of her at an Alexandria Target were staged.

But if we take Obama at her word, note that she says she also hits up Chipotle on occasion. So now that we do know where to expect her, just be cool, you guys.

    Not sure the point of this post, other than you think the First Lady went on national television with Al Roker and lied (maybe that's your point). But I will say this, you must not shop much in the District. Unless they need to ID you for something, clerks in big/busy stores (Target, Petco, Chipotle) rarely make eye-contact with you...actually that's pretty much true anywhere, not just the District.

    The point was I don't care if Michelle Obama went to the fucking pet store. I went to the pet store just last week. Is that cool or something? Politician, movie stars, musicians, etc. are just people like everyone else. I bet she even pooped that same day. OH MY GOD! Michelle Obama took a shit. Once we take all politicians off their pedestal they may actually start working opposed to sending dick pics to waitresses.
