Michelle Obama mistakenly describes herself as a 'busy single mum'

US First Lady, Michelle Obama raised eyebrows with her brief slip of the tongue yesterday Thursday April 4th when she described herself as a 'busy single mum' during an interview with a Vermont CBS station.

She caught her mistake immediately and explained: "You know, when you've got the husband who's president, it can feel a little single, but he's there,". She then described herself as 'busy working mom."

The First Lady was answering questions about the difficulties that working parents can have when they try to balance their office lives with their home lives. "Before coming to the White House, I was in that position," she confessed. "Working, driving kids to practice, not having enough time to shop or cook, not having the energy."

Just a slip of the tongue, well, propaganda lovers can dwell on it and magnify it out of proportion if they so like.

You won't blame her if you've got a very tight schedule as a wife and a mum coupled with a very busy husband that is rarely at home....it sure does fill single @ times (from experience)....in between, there's absolutely no basis of comparism btw Michelle and Dame P cos sleep and death are incomparable!

Of course the job of the president of USA is very demanding. With all the meetings and all worth not.
We perfectly understand you, Michelle Obama. Does anybody even think a very hard working president of any country will have time for his own family?
We are not talking about our self-proclaimed-once-shoeless-but-found-otherwise president Jonathan here, who knows nothing more than traveling all over the world enjoying himself while Boko Haram is raining havoc down our throats.

When it comes to the white. House, it becomes "a slip " bt other pple like dame and my Oga on top it becomes a national embarrassment. Y

Well women can be very passionate about their kids, that they get carried away and forget that there is a man involved. It was mother's instinct that gave away the slip of tongue.

Rafaeluv said...

Rare gem not a 'rear gem' @ bona .
It appears part of her true feelings leaked . There might be issues between her and her husband being kept off the public. In trying to correct herself she still made it clear she feels single (most likely lonely) sometimes .

I sure hope these same people are not the ones complaining about the lack of employment opportunities in Nigeria.
And don't get me started on 'text- speak' it's ridiculous!

Opirite Abel Briggs said...

You can see that making mistake is a natural phenomenon, everybody makes mistakes irrespective of who you are and where you are, so you people should stop making irritating comments about our first lady when she makes mistake.
Secondly, "my oga at the top" is also a product of mistake, not knowing how to place words at the right time...so Nigerians stop all these mockery of our leaders!
