First Lady of Snot

When my friend Mark S. McGrew said in an email to me yesterday that there’s a video showing the First Lady with snot coming out of her nose, I was incredulous.

But you can see this with your own eyes for yourself.

On February 28, 2011, Michelle Obama gave a speech at the National Governors Association Meeting in the White House. Here’s the video, provided by the White House (fast forward to the end of the video where you’ll see the imprimatur).

Go ahead and verify the following for yourselves:

  • At the 10:47 mark: M.O. wipes her nose with a finger.
  • At the 11:16 mark: The sniffles begin.
  • At the 12:50 mark: Visible shiny mucus secretion from her nose.
  • Beginning at the 14:20 mark: A drop of mucus comes out of her left nostril.
  • Beginning at the 16:10 mark: The droplet of mucus is clearly visible.
  • At the 16:55 mark: M.O. wipes nose with right hand.
  • At the 17:02 mark: M.O. wipes nose with left hand. Right after that, I do believe I saw her tongue flicking up to lick the moisture.

Here’s a closeup of the screenshot I took of the shiny droplet under M.O.’s left nostril at the 14:20 mark (click image to enlarge):

First Lady of Snot

As you can see for yourself, this wasn’t just a little mucus; this was a sustained mucus secretion that lasted more than SIX minutes at least.

I don’t get it. If M.O. had a cold that day, why didn’t she use a tissue or hankie to blow her nose? Or is this a case of coke sniffles? From “The Signs of Cocaine Use“:

The signs of cocaine use can sometimes be obvious. Cocaine, if snorted, wreaks havoc on membranes in the nose. As a result of a heavy dose of cocaine abuse, a user may have the “sniffles” for several days afterward. Now, sometimes this may present itself as just a minor affliction, like that you might see in an allergy sufferer. Other times the sniffling is pronounced. You probably have noticed that your loved one is having some serious trouble with their nose.

When I used cocaine heavily I would need a box of kleenex by my side for days. I struggled with a mucus drip coming out of my nostrils and found myself sniffling frequently, about once a minute or more, to keep this mucus from running down my face.

  1. Apparently, they’ve pulled the video. I could not locate it at the website. Very hygienic, if true. 🙂



  2. Looks like a cocaine drip to me. Not only the drip, but how she handles it as if it’s perfectly normal to have snot dripping down to your lip.
    Whether it is or not a coke drip, it’s still a disgusting sight from someone who is accustomed to being a filthy pig.


  3. It looks awful.


  4. Did her mama not teach her common good hygiene habits when she was growing up???


    • Good question, DW. I’m frankly at a complete loss for words. It wasn’t a momentary thing. The snot dribbling from her nose went on for many minutes. Why didn’t she use a tissue????


  5. I refuse to watch the video. Just reading about it was enough to make me start gagging.


  6. geez what a pair we have in the whitehouse one smokes coke (crack) and the other snorts it. barack the smoker as reported by sinclair aroound 5 years ago.


  7. Could someone have PLEASE handed her a tissue? ..sometimes I wonder if we would rather watch the train-wreck than help. ..goodness!

    My better half’s comment… could we have had some other issue on here? ..get a life! :o) …they were laughing as this was said.

    My spouse agreed with you Ted!!


  8. my adult daughter added…. funny that she wiped that on both of her hands… then shake hands with someone important following this speech…Hope they all had their shots this year! ;o)


  9. oh DAMN,,,, damn! just dammmmmm.
    Ok, at first i thought ok, give her the benefit of the doubt, maybe its a lighting or makeup issue, but,,, really?!? Not once, twice or three times, but FOUR finger swipes of the nose? And this woman is supposed to be the role model for americans to look up to? What happened to the first family that demonstrated integrity and class? Me thinks me needs to go hibernate for 4 years,,,


  10. There was a time when a lady always carried a hanky, much of them time tucked into her sleeve, but even these days of relaxed convention, I would think a lady of her stature would at least carry a kleenex for those moments when her body insistson betraying her.


  11. You can take the first lady (?) out of the hood but you can’t take the hood out of the first lady (?)………………………………………….


  12. Boogergate?


  13. Geeez–what an example of pure “class”—–!


  14. Who nose? Snot funny. Another scene from “Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue”.


  15. Dr. Eowyn –

    My theory is, that our nation’s self-appointed Fat Czar became very hungry during her speech. And, the only nutrition available for her was her own snot. Please attempt to put yourself in this big woman’s shoes…….


  16. big woman much more like pig woman too bad michelle wasn’t visiting in china last week she would be lying in the shanghai river with the rest of her brethren…


  17. Dr. Eowyn –

    Thank you for your wonderful article. I found a way how to share it:

    Nation’s self appointed Fat Czar now auditioning for nation’s Etiquette Czar


  18. I’ve come to the conclusion that the First Lady of Snot is attempting to mimic one of her favorite persons. But, since MO talks so much; I think she is trying to innovate, using her nostrils. Her political idol would be proud of her:




  20. The MAD Jewess



  21. Did you all forget that she is just human like everyone else? not everyone brings a tissue with them, its not like every one knows when their nose is gonna run. i think you would all do the same thing in a huge conference as such so ya’ll need to shut the hell up.


    • No, if I were speaking before a group and my nose is dripping snot, and if I don’t have a tissue on me, I would ask someone for a tissue. I would most certainly do that particularly if I were the First Lady and have an entire retinue of assistants getting 6-figure taxpayer-paid salaries.

      In fact, not only have I made countless public speeches, I’d taught univ. students for 25+ years, beginning when I was still finishing my Ph.D. onto the Full Professor level, and I had NEVER EVER let snot dribble down from my nose — not even for a second, even less for minutes upon minutes. Nor have I EVER flicked my tongue up to lick the snot.

      So you can shut the hell up.


  22. If my nose was runnin’ money, I’d blow it all on you. But Honey, its snot.


  23. coming soon moocowchelle hires another staffer this one to carry kleenex and wipe the first ladies nose when the boogers start running


  24. Ohoh, flicking tongue – not a good sign!!


  25. its her way of disrespect for america!
