WASHINGTON: Several witnesses have reported that Michelle Obama, the First Lady of the United States, got into a heated verbal argument with another customer at Whole Foods earlier today.
While many think it would be impossible for the First Lady to go anywhere "normal" during her daily routine, one of her aides explained, it isn't unusual for her to go on brief outings, provided she has a nearby security detail.
"Ms. Obama enjoys shopping for the family one or two times a week, as well as taking short walks to the park by herself or with a few agents. With a simple disguise, she is unrecognizable until you stand right in front of her."
While her outings are usually low-key and kept relatively secret, today's took an entirely different route when she was angered by another woman, shopping with her son.
The First Lady noticed the woman buying some regular potato chips for her child, and approached the woman, suggesting to her that she should spend her money on healthy fruits and vegetables for her family, instead of, "Chemical-filled junk."
When the woman refused, Ms. Obama then tried to convince her to buy the low-sodium or low-fat varieties, and when the woman resisted, she began shouting at her, saying that the woman's choices were going to have consequences on her son's health later in life, and that she should be more focused on being a role model, rather than giving in to her son's demands.
"The son looked completely healthy." one witness said.
After the woman began to shout at Mrs. Obama, security intervened, and escorted the First Lady out of the store.
Joyce Welchinton, a regular customer at Whole Foods, observed that there was a good amount of fruits and vegetables in the cart. She added, "I support the hard work and energy that Mrs. Obama has put into the last four years of promoting kids' health, but I don't see the damage that one bag of chips will do. A little junk every once in a while won't hurt."
