Michelle Obama Calls Herself "Busy Single Mother"

Living in the White House can apparently be lonely at times.

Asked in an interview about how she and President Barack Obama get daughters Malia and Sasha to eat healthy, First Lady Michelle Obama served up a gaffe.

She referred to herself as a "busy single mother."

"Believe me, as a busy single mother," Michelle Obama told Vermont CBS affiliate WCAX, before catching herself. "Or, I shouldn't say single, as a busy mother."

Wonder what Barack will have to say about this little snafu ... then again, after what he said about Kamala Harris, maybe this is just a make-up gaffe?

FLOTUS then clarified some more: "Sometimes, you know, when you've got a husband who is President, it can feel a little single. But he's there."

Yeah, yeah, leader of the free world. Excuses, excuses.

"But as a busy working mom, and before coming to the White House, I was in that position, you know, as well," she said. "Working, driving kids to practice."

"You know not having enough time to shop or cook, not having enough energy ... resources aren't the issue but time and energy is always the key."

Michelle, who heads the "Let's Move" Initiative focusing on healthy recipes and active lifestyles, is making the rounds promoting those worthy causes.


Fortunately for Michelle, it was merely a slip of the tongue, for had it been true, she would certainly have been attacked by social conservatives for contributing to the downfall of all that is good and wholesome in American society.

She doesn't have a clue what it's like to be
A single mom!!!
I guess Barry is spending to much time at the
