    Jesus, they have the first black presidents' wife rapping now. I'm sick of this regime, can't wait for a new president. I wouldn't even mind a far right republican at this point

    Jason, I think she looks fine (but what do I know?). I don't think she should give up her day job for rap, but that's another story.

      Dagnabbit, I meant to post this to respond directly to Jason's post, somewhere at the bottom of this thread!. Oh, well....

    Good initiative and kids should be eating healthy, but she ruined it with the "holla" at the end. BARF!

      Could not agree more. Kids can see right through sanctimonious preaching. Were I ten and I saw this, it would make me want to eat an entire box of Twinkees on one sitting.

      I think the NFL's "Play Sixty" campaign is much more effective for sincerity and honesty.

        Maybe in the future there will be a Catching Fire theme weight loss program for "weigh-ward" youth. Could sprinkle a little Lord of the Flies element in there too. Pig hunts can always be a good source of exercise.

          I have always believed that I would rather raise a Katniss than a Kardashian...

          For certain. If the proverbial *&#@ ever hits the fan, white color job skills and celebrity status will be the first to go to the bottom of the totem pole in terms of survival.

    No one with a butt as wide as that moron should tell anyone what to eat.

      This comment struck me as borderline racist.
