President Obama Tries to Trim First Lady’s Closet

Celebuzz / March 24, 2009

Good luck editing any of the gems Michelle Obama has in store for us, Mr. President.

The First Lady, who spoke at her recent gadren planting on the White House grounds, told reporters that her husband Barack Obama doesn’t understand needing more than one pair of shoes.

“You didn’t need any more shoes. The shoes you had on yesterday were fine. Why can’t you just wear that for the rest of the presidency?” she imitated him and his poking around her closet.

“He’s always asking: ‘Is that new? I haven’t seen that before.’ It’s like, Why don’t you mind your own business? Solve world hunger. Get out of my closet,” she joked.

And probably best he does. While politics is his clear song suit, he doesn’t pass fashion with flying colors.

Of the many mod ad-on’s the First Lady has in rotation, she says Barack gravitates toward a specific metallic belt.

“Barack calls it my ‘Star Trek’ belt,” Obama said.

We’ll leave accesorizing to his wife.
