What Michelle Obama Did To This Journalist Had Her Feeling “Creeped Out”

Meg Kissinger is an experienced journalist at the Milwauke Journal Sentinel. She thought she’d seen it all, until she covered Michelle Obama’s speech in Wisconsin on Monday. There, the First Lady did something that left Kissinger feeling “creeped out.”

Michelle was in town to campaign for Dem. candidate for Governor, Mary Burke. As soon as Kissinger arrived at the event, aides for Michelle and Burke told the journalist that she was not allowed to speak to other members of the crowd.

A stunned Kissinger took to Facebook to express her frustration:


In a reply to her post, she added:


Later, Kissinger described what happened in detail in her article:

“At the Burke event, a number of people in the crowd were upset about a lack of seating. Several people, including a woman using two canes, complained that she had nowhere to sit.

Reporters and photographers were cordoned off in a central area with chairs and tables. Several people in the crowd asked if they could have extra chairs reserved for the media — but reporters were initially forbidden from handing them over. Eventually, some of the Burke staff gave the extra chairs to attendees.

Burke and White House staff also told reporters not to talk to people in the crowd before the event.”

What could Michelle have been trying to hide from reporters? Perhaps she didn’t want them to quote the disapproving audience in their stories?

What do you think Michelle’s reasoning was? Sound off in the comments below!
