Michelle Obama's Arms

What’s the big deal?

In my opinion this woman does not look particularly strong. Skinny even. She does have reletively low body fat and that will make anyone look who lifts the slightest weight show some muscle, but I do not understand why there is such an issue over her just because she looks like she works out.

In the words of a friend of mine, “I think the issue is we’ve gotten so fat as a country that anybody not fat is automatically fit.”

It’s the low body fat. It’s pretty sad.

Cuz it’s unamerican to not fawn over her for SOMETHING. After all, she is our president’s vaginal life support unit.

Because women who workout are a rare item in our society.

Therefor everyone thinks its something “different”

but really figure athletics is simply a subculture and doesnt get the exposure to put her arms in perspective as being not a big deal.

She looks healthy.

It’s annoying to keep hearing about this, but it’s not her fault that she’s so far above average in this country because the average is pretty disgusting.

lol.

Oh my god! People are stupid.

Wait, they said that’s a quote from an online forum. TexasGuy? Is that you?

Not everyone can be a goddess like Janet Reno. She is the fire that ignites my loins.

Exactly. She is tall and she is thin, it’s just the way she is. But just being that has made her “ripped” and “buff”, it’s sad like PMPM said.

Of course if Michelle Obama was a Republican they’d be chiding that she is prognathic enough to eat an apple through a pickett fence.

She does crossfit.

Thank you Push for the pic to show what I am talking about. She isn’t “buff” by any means, she is just thin and has some muscle tone.
The “hiding” part kind of makes me mad though…

“There is nothing uglier than manly, muscular arms on a woman. Mrs. Obama should be hiding them instead of showing them off.”

Mrs. Obama is just exercising her constitutional right to bear arms.

Yeah she isn’t buff at all…

I bet she couldn’t even deadlift 500#.

If she is so “buff” then why is her watch sliding half way to her elbow? Girl needs some grip work.

No she isn’t. She is not flabby but certainly not “buff”. She just looks healthy.

i lol’d

I am guessing the people who write this stuff are just fat. It’s much easier to bitch about people who are in “good shape” than to actually do something about their own body issues.

I don’t understand how skinny and slightly toned arms equate to masculine. Pretty sure it’s normal in parts of the world where 90% of men and women actually do manual labor to support their families.
