2. Careers on TV

I think the Obamas should start their own TV show after he stops being Prez. They're both naturals on the camera.

3. Michelle also talked about " Let Girls Learn "

"Working together to open the doors of education for girls around the world."

"To educate a girl is to build a healthier family, a stronger community, and a brighter future. Unfortunately today, more than 62 million girls around the world are not in school—half of whom are adolescents. We know that countries with more girls in secondary school tend to have lower maternal mortality rates, lower infant mortality rates, lower rates of HIV/AIDS, and better child nutrition."

The best contraceptive is an educated woman.

10. Yes indeed it is

I read decades ago that in places where women are essentially illiterate the norm is to have 8 children. To afford a girl even as much as a 4th grade education and that drops by half.

6. I lived her giving shade to the idea anyone should pity Melania !! Was beautiful to say

 

That IF she believed in what Donald was doing she should be right there with him. And would not say a bad thing about her "mistake" of stealing half her speech, her face said it all. Theft is not a mistake, and we all know it.

9. Exactly . Only thing I will say about Melania , she is a tool .



On the other hand I really really like / appreciate Michelle , she has class and of course Barack .

Pretty cool Stephen hosted event day before with Michelle at UN General Assembly Concert to benefit Let girls learn .

11. Her and Donald are using each other and that's fine, but there has been nothing laudable about

 

The lives they have led. Nothing.

Unlike Colbert and Michelle.
