Michelle Obama Eats1,700 Calorie-Meal at the Shake Shack

As nit picky and meticulous as it may be, I have to point out a little Michelle Obama hypocrisy.  As the leading fighter in the “war against obesity,” last year the First Lady launched the “Let’s Move” campaign – a national initiative designed to trim the fat off America’s youth.

But as the stories keep coming in, it has become quite apparent that Michelle does not practice what she preaches.  I mean come on, tamales, french fries, ice cream, and big old greasy hamburgers are a regular part of her diet.  And because I know you are so interested, here’s the latest:

A Washington Post journalist on the scene confirmed the first lady, who’s made a cause out of child nutrition, ordered a ShackBurger, fries, chocolate shake and a Diet Coke while the street and sidewalk in front of the usually-packed Shake Shack were closed by security during her visit.

Now I’m not judging Michelle’s diet – I contribute a fair amount to McDonald’s net profits – just her hypocritical preaching on the fast food pulpit.  And I’m definitely not a calorie-counter; however, I’m pretty sure 1,700 is no small number.
