Oops: Michelle Obama calls herself a ‘single mom’

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Michelle Obama made headlines last week after she referred to herself as a “busy single mom” during an interview with WCAX – a CBS affiliate in Burlington, Vermont. Since Glenn was on vacation, he wasn’t able to cover the story when it happened, but he quickly made up for lost time on radio this morning.

“This is something that happened last week, but we haven’t a chance to comment on it,” Glenn said. “I believe [Michelle Obama] is married to someone kind of famous, however, I believe she believes she is single.”

MRS. OBAMA: …So we have to deal with the question of access. And believe me, as a busy single mother – I shouldn’t say single – as a busy mother. Sometimes when you’ve got the husband who’s president, it can feel a little single, but he’s there.

“I believe she believes she is single,” Glenn reiterated. “They take vacations separately. Look, if you take a vacation separate from your spouse and your children, maybe once it’s like, ‘You know what, it’s boy’s night and these are guys that graduated from college with. We’re having a weekend in Vegas.’ Not a sign of a real healthy thing going on…”

“I totally disagree with that,” Stu interjected. Stu, who has been known to take the annual boys trip to the Super Bowl, doesn’t think going on occasional trips is the problem, but the Obama’s separate vacationing habits have become somewhat routine.

“You’re going to Vegas for a weekend… But that’s not what these guys do,” Glenn said. “They go on separate vacations. He goes there, and she goes there. What? What is that?”

“And then they send the kids on separate vacations too,” Pat added. “Every spring break they send both daughters.”

Beyond their independent vacation tendencies, this comment is particularly insensitive coming from someone who constantly tries to paint herself as an average, everyday woman but, in reality, is living a very privileged life.

“You shouldn’t say single. Why,” Pat asked, “because you’re married to the President! It might be a very telling moment.”

“It could be, Glenn said. “[Maybe] she does feel like a single mother but not in a bad way. His job is all consuming. We know that she hates the White House. She has dreams – literally she said my biggest dream is just leaving this house and going back to Chicago. So she hates it. Not as much as we hate having you there. But she just hates it. And so she could very well just be like, ‘I’m kind of a single mom because he’s working all the time.’”

Despite Glenn’s surprising defense of the First Lady, the sympathy did not last long. “But that [argument] doesn’t work because [the President] leaves the office at 5 o’clock and doesn’t come in sometimes until 10 AM. He works a full…”

“A full six hours,” Pat said. “Five or six hours – five hours with lunch.”

“Sometimes he’s on the phone,” Glenn added. “Well, if she has a tendency of she’s saying, ‘I’m a single mom,’ maybe she should see if everybody can stay home more often. He is technically working from home. He’s got his ‘home’ office. He’s there. You’re upstairs… I’m just saying.”

    Well with all the golf he plays she might as well be a single mother.

    You have captured Obama’s profile well!  Some people think that what I’m about to say is meant as some kind of joke; it isn’t.  Recently, there was an article about Obama as the lord of the flies.  In Hebrew it is Beelzebub, ancient Baal, another term for Satan.  You have to Google, Obama, lord of the flies, it is amazing.  Obama’s demonization is becoming more apparent with each passing day.  It’s as though he is becoming drunk with power.  The question is; who is the source of Obama’s power and protection.  A

    i guess she considers herself single ever since his sexist,inappropriate comment re: the cali attorney general. i think it was her way of saying ” payback is a b.tch.”

    She is a single mother, if you can call her a mother at all. Her ‘husband’ is in name only. Doubt he is even the sperm donor. It’s all a charade. Another hoax on the people of this country. The only ‘family’ Barry has is his body man Reggie Love!

    Holy crap: Glenn Beck lies to his audiance over and over and over, and he still has people gullible enough to send him money every month for more lies.

    The 1st Lady MOMENTARILY misspeaks, and Beck — as is his wont — has to try to make a big deal out of it. All Beck and the other two stooges accomplished here is to make big asses of themselves.

    Will anyone who has NEVER misspoke, and quickly corrected him or herself, please throw the first stone…at Glenn Beck.

    You can call it misspeaking….I call it a Freudian slip. She doesn’t have the luxury of not having every word recorded or questioned. Those who lie a lot forget to whom they told what to.

    Small correction – Obama is not ‘becoming drunk’ he is drunk on power. It will only grow worse as his madness grows by the day. Demonic? Probably.

  • Denise

    Hi Snowleopard,
    The book of Daniel tells of a king “who does as he pleases.” This king is the Antichrist.  There are times that I am convinced that Obama is that king.  Then there are other times when I think that he is only a precursor or a prototype of the Antichrist.  A sort of John the Baptist, paving the way for the rise of the this demonic ruler.  
    What are your thoughts on this?

    She is married to a gay guy, so she probably feels single.

    I would not doubt it–I have several gay friends and they all say Obama is definitely gay

    Since bo is gay they probably are not married and I doubt those kids are even his. Hey, they lie about everything else why not this. Some day those kids will find out just how horrible and corrupt Bo and mooshelle really are.

    People in some circles hear “Single-Mom” so often it becomes almost an automatic phrase.   They get so used to saying it and hearing it so often that it just comes out automatically.   Community Organizers and Politicians hear and say “single-mom” so much in their daily jobs that they almost forget that some moms aren’t single.

    I most certainly can’t blame her – just look at him.  Course she is not a knock out either.  Poor kids.  I think she has and will have her hands full with Obama.  Poor kids….

  • Sandie

    That is probably why she sees herself as a single mother – he is never there.

    Glen I think you are missing the point (one of very very few you miss).  Michelle’s comment was indicative of the whole false front this administration wants to put on.  They want to be able to say “I’ve done that” or “I’ve been there” to lull the sheep with their own brand of “false empathy”.  The fact is they are so used to using this ploy that they don’t really know what they are saying they have experience with.  Only that they “feel your pain”.

     I absolutely love how a topic that started with Michelle Obama feeling like a single mother has quickly devolved into accusing the President of being a homosexual anti christ. Wow. I imagine life is pretty lonely for her in the White House. I sincerely doubt Obama, or any other President for that matter, has ever worked a 6 hour work day. If that was the case, man, sign me up. I spend 9 hours a day at work. I’d love to work 6 hours a day in the comfort of my own home. And to anyone who believes that this madness started when Obama took the helm, think again. This has been a long time coming. I’m not defending his actions in regards to the PATRIOT ACT enhancements or his very liberal use of drones abroad and apparently within the US. He’s simply continuing policies that were set in place long ago. And don’t think even for a second that this will all stop when he’s out of office. A lot of us thought the same thing when Bush left office.

     There are many “types” of Christ in the Old Testament and as so, I believe the same can hold true for the upcoming antichrist.  I said as much to several friends shortly after Obama’s first election, that I believe he is a precursor

    She was a single mom for a long time when the president was a senator. Single mom status probably doesn’t have to do with having a diferent last name than a person’s husband, it means he’s never around. Michelle had to raise the kids herself because the president was either in Springfield or in Congress. He works far more than six hours a day. Even though he’s in the White House he is still really busy. He plays golf partly because he hates the confines of the place so he has his meetings out there. Lots of people have business meetings on golf courses. As for taking vacations seperately partly those also might be business meetings. Anyway, where is there a law saying famillies have to vacation together? If all the people in a family want to go different places how is that not okay? It beats dragging people to places they might not want to go to or for the length of time the vacation is for and the Obamas seemm like a liberated family even though they share a last name together

    Didn’t Mrs. Obama work at a high paying job before the Senator became President? Her mother  moved to The White with the Obamas to take care of the children. Not only is Mrs. Obama not a single mother, she isn;t a stay-at-home mother either.If she and her girls are lonely, open the White House tour and speak to sone real single mothers and families who do vacation together.

    Seriously, I’ve seen this before. The POTUS is an alcoholic (Vodka), and she is distancing herself and kids from him. It’s the reason he went to bed night of Benghazi; he didn’t want anyone to accuse him of drinking and making decisions. It’s the reason for telepromters. Laugh if you want, but there was only one release of his physical, and the ‘doc said to cut back on the juice. It’s the reason for his being led around, and his peculiar behavior.

    Her mission was to go out there and stretch the truth, paint a picture and get a buy in. Say whatever it takes to get the point made. And then she realized she spun one that was so apparently a lie, she retracted. It’s not dishonest it’s just playing to the crowd. LOL

    Anti-Christ means: those who are against Christ and all he stands for via his followers and the written word of the Father.

    Under this standing, Obama believes in collective salvation of the masses – by persuasion, coercion and in the end by bloody subjugation (if he is not stripped of his office soon).

    This is contrary to the Word of God and the message of Jesus, in which salvation has been opened unto all, and grace has been extended; but it is left for the individual called to redemption to accept or reject based upon their own actions.

    Read Ezekiel and see the countless examples given by God thorough his prophet…the example of the Grandfather, Father and Son cover three generations; the Israeli people of the time assumed if one was guilty of a crime, then all generations were to be held to account forevermore.

    Yet God declared ‘your ways are not my ways…’ and explained by example that in the end we are all held to account for OUR OWN DEEDS.

    Thus the difference, the Devil and his minions seek control and power by usage of manipulation, coercion and force. All they offer in the end is death.

    God provides the means unto life, but never promises us a rose garden in this world. He leaves the choice to the individual in recognition he wants people who will willingly follow, and not have to be forced into it.

    Thus Obama represents an aspect of the Devil, who is a true Anti Christ (in that he stands in opposition to God/Jesus)

    Yea right and tell me HOW does he work sooo many  hours  when he has his first briefing at 10:15 am and at 11:30 takes his lunch with ol’Biden   ah yea I know he works out in the White House super Gym from 8 – 10 or what????  The same thing goes for her a $300K for a halfday job as a patient relations whatever ???  oh my  – already then they were abusers of the system no wonder they have all these 13 % followers. I’m just getting so tired of this – how can they expect respect from me when they do not show the least of restraint?  They want to be leadeers – proof you are leaders stop wasting!!!! 
    About all that other stuff I do not know and I do not want to know! Since Clinton, Wiener, Petreaus and the likes of those men I can not look at our Politians with the same enthusiasm as before. Sorry!  

  • greywolfrs

    Really? So, when she supposedly worked, was Obamao a “single-father?” You obviously don’t have the first clue what a TRUE single-mother goes through and neither does she. Most single moms get no help from the father. They work to support the family, ALONE. They deal with EVERYTHING ALONE. Calling Moochelle a single-mom is B S, stop trying to jusitfy what she said.

  • greywolfrs

    Seems as though you speak from experience, vicki tiffany.

    Yeah, it’s only a mistake, that happens when one lies all the time. They can never remember the lies they told and often make these kinds of mistakes. Oh, wait, Obamao makes these mistakes all the time. You are one dumb M F er, vicki tiffany.

  • greywolfrs

    The part vicki tiffany seems to be missing is that people who lie often can never see to remember the lies they told. That is why they “misspeak.” Now, insert Obamao and Moochelle, they seem to misspeak on a regular basis…

    Do you really think a single mother is going to have money for a vacation?  I am betting relatively few.  If they do have the money, why would they want to witness the destruction of the republic?

  • Robert

    How are multi-million dollar vacations and parties with celebrities supposed to make Michelle Obama look like a poor single mother struggling to make it?  I say she needs to go to the ghetto or maybe a backwoods trailer park and get to know the real single mothers. What she has is not being a single mother.
