Michelle Obama Snubbed By Medal Of Honor Winner In a Brutal Way


December 22, 2014 7:50am PST

Cliff Romesha is a former Army staff sergeant who was awarded the Medal of Honor last year. Afterwards, first lady Michelle Obama invited him to sit in her box with her during the State of the Union address. Romesha, however, wasn’t having any of it.

The decorated war hero declined Michelle’s offer, refusing to sit with her in her box.

“I’ve done some soul searching,” Romesha told reporters. “As much as a great honor it would be to be a guest of the first lady, it’s also kind of hard to break away from the friends and the family and all the great guys here.”


It’s unclear whether Romesha’s reasoning was political, but the invitation was prestigious enough that his refusal definitely comes off as him taking a stand against the Obamas. Perhaps Romesha got tired of Michelle’s focus on banning cupcakes rather than helping veterans…
