First Lady Michelle Obama is being told to quiet down, but instead of making us do an eye roll- this time it’s actually kind of cute.
After taking criticism and frankly, plain MJB hateration from right-wing commentators the First Lady is making the best kind of retort- not paying them any mind. Continuing with her campaign against childhood obesity, Michelle Obama in continuing on her mission to raise public awareness for the cause.
Appearing in a new PSA, the First Lady promotes her “Let’s Move!” campaign with the help of some famous and precious faces. The spot features Michelle Obama and tennis super couple Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf coaching two pretty competitive girls. After the First Lady encourages kids to engage in physical activity for at least one hour a day, one of the girls turns to her and goes, “Shhh!” The First Lady responds mouthing “Ooh! Sorry!” and then makes a slightly more expressive Kanye shrug.

Orlando’s mother says that she and her daughter were not notified of the First Lady’s involvement until the night before filming the commercial.
