Cleopatra for Halloween

By Arthur Piccolo

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Oct. 28, 2016: Well, how about that Obama’s America’s historic 300th weekly episode, which coincides with our annual Halloween episode. A coincidence?

Another coincidence?  The New York Times just featured Michele Obama on the cover of their Sunday Magazine as “Cleopatra,” even if not on purpose. Tell me Michelle could not be Cleopatra, a “true” Queen.

After all there is no doubt The Obamas’ will have a very exclusive Halloween Party at The White House. Sadly their last chance to do so.

And Barack and Michelle have thrown more parties at The White House for themselves and their elite pals than any other First Couple – maybe more than all the others combined?  They definitely know how to PARTY!

In fact, it began the night of January 20, 2009, while Barack and Michelle were going from Inaugural Ball to Inaugural Ball, all their special friends had already invaded The White House at Barack and Michele’s invitation for an all night party. The White Hoes staff had never seen anything like it. And the partying has never ever stopped for 8 years.

As for this Halloween, inspired by this NY Times cover, I am recommending that Barack & Michelle come to their Halloween Party as Marc Antony and Cleopatra! And dazzle all their special guests. One final time!

Compare Barack and Michelle to the original Marc Antony and Cleopatra. They make a very good match. The original Antony and Cleopatra – he the a famous Roman general and she the Queen of Egypt. They fell in love and were inseparable and ruled together but to the dismay of many, and alas, they met tragic fates just as Barack and Michele will soon lose The White House.

What could be more perfect for them this Halloween?

I do not want to lose sight of The NY Time Magazine story featuring Michelle that inspired me for this 300th issue. Ass Kissing reaches new heights as some so called notables are asked by The Times to sing and SHOUT their praises of Michelle.

Outlandish nonsense beyond belief – the kind of stuff I am sure the original Cleopatra heard all the time from her fawning subjects.

Here is what someone named Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who is the author of the novel “Americanah” and the book-length essay “We Should All Be Feminists” and a recipient of a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant, has to say in this article about Michelle.

“She first appeared in the public consciousness, all common sense and mordant humor, at ease in her skin. She had the air of a woman who could balance a checkbook, and who knew a good deal when she saw it, and who would tell off whomever needed telling off. She was tall and sure and stylish. She was reluctant to be first lady, and did not hide her reluctance beneath platitudes. She seemed not so much unique as true. She sharpened her husband’s then-hazy form, made him solid, more than just a dream.”

O Michelle you are so wonderful and so HUMBLE too as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichiewho tells us here. She goes on with more ….

“The story of her life as she told it was wholesomely American, drenched in nostalgia: a father who worked shifts and a mother who stayed home, an almost mythic account of self-reliance, of moderation, of working-class contentment.”

More …..

“She seemed genuine. She was genuine. All over America, black women were still, their eyes watching a form of God, because she represented their image writ large in the world.”

YES Michelle is a God … more than a mere Queen like Cleopatra!

ENOUGH from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichiewho. No more Koolaid for you.

Let’s move on to the next Michelle Sycophant – Gloria Steinem …

“She really entered my imagination once she became first lady, a tall, strong, elegant and seriously smart woman who happened to live in the White House. She managed to convey dignity and humor at the same time, to be a mother of two daughters and insist on regular family dinners, and to take on health issues and a national food industry addicted to unhealthy profits. She did this despite an undertow of bias in this country that subtly questioned everything she did. Was she too strong, physically and intellectually, to be a proper first lady?”

IMAGINE Michelle doing all that? Let’s all say it – SUPER WOMAN!

Wait there is much more from Gloria. It gets even better for Michelle …

“After a decade under a public microscope, she has managed what no other first lady — and few people in any public position — have succeeded in doing: She has lived a public life without sacrificing her privacy and authenticity. She made her husband both more human and effective as a president by being his interpreter and defender, but also someone we knew was capable of being his critic. Eventually, she spoke up about the pain of the racist assumptions directed at her, but she waited until her husband could no longer be politically punished for her honesty. And she has always been the best kind of mother, which means insisting that fathers be equal parents. All of this she has done with honesty, humor and, most important, kindness.”

Here is what I think just like Barack Michelle Obama “deserves” yes ….

THE NOBEL PRIZE for  … EVERYTHING!

That’s enough Ms. Steinem. No more Koolaid for you either.

Next and last here in PRAISE of Michelle, John Meacham.

Who is he?? Jon Meacham is a Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer and the author most recently, of “Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush.”

What does Mr. Meacham have to say about Michelle?
“As their history-making time in the White House comes to an end, it’s worth pondering the lessons of the Age of Obama. My own view is that both the president and the first lady have conducted themselves splendidly in the White House, managing the most difficult of tasks with apparent ease: projecting a grace that masked the ambition and the drive that took them, at early ages, to the pinnacle of American life.”

Yes the Age of Obama! More please Mr. Meacham …

President Obama gets much of the public credit for handling his eight years coolly, but the first lady has been a critical element of his success. She has chosen her shots carefully — not least in choosing to make the case against Donald Trump on the campaign trail in 2016 — and is leaving the country with a warm impression of an excellent mother, a steady spouse and a sensible, devoted American. She has chosen her shots carefully — not least in choosing to make the case against Donald Trump on the campaign trail in 2016 — and is leaving the country with a warm impression of an excellent mother, a steady spouse and a sensible, devoted American.”

That’s right, tell it like it really is ….

“President Obama gets much of the public credit for handling his eight years coolly, but the first lady has been a critical element of his success.”

Just as Antony needed Cleopatra – Barack needs Michelle just as much.

But wait … John Meacham is not finished praising Michelle; not close …

“She was not Mrs. Roosevelt or Mrs. Carter or Mrs. Reagan or Mrs. Clinton, playing roles in affairs of state. Instead she did what the first African-American first lady arguably had to do to play a successful public role. In Voltaire’s terms, she cultivated her own garden, never threatening and never intimidating her neighbors. Much more doubtless unfolded beneath the surface or behind closed doors; history will sort that out. For now, it is enough to say that she is leaving the White House a strong and popular figure with a lifetime of good will and great reservoirs of capital on which to draw as she and her husband write their next chapters.”

ENCORE ….

“For now, it is enough to say that she is leaving the White House a strong and popular figure with a lifetime of good will and great reservoirs of capital on which to draw as she and her husband write their next chapters.”

Yes, what will Michelle’s next chapter be? There are no limits. There are no limits for Michelle – she is a Queen. She is a God. She should be Immortal!

May we dream the Dream? And may I have the honor to be the first to articulate in here in the historic 300th episode of Obama’s America – and keep in mind it is Obama’s America NOT Barack Obama’s America!

So I will say it … After 8 years of President Hillary Clinton, what could be better and what would be more perfect than President Michelle Obama!

YES, YES, YES … DREAM THE DREAM … go head!!! Could you imagine it?
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichiewho, Gloria Steinem and John Meacham I am certain agree and million and millions of others across the world.

If only I could somehow get an invitation to The Obama’s final White House Halloween Party next Monday night and tell Michelle myself.

What costume would I wear, What part would I play?

The FOOL no doubt to do something like that and join Chimamanda Ngozi Adichiewho, Gloria Steinem and John Meacham in kissing Michelle Obama’s bejeweled  Rear End with fawning praise she does not deserve.

GLOVES OFF Michelle ….

You and Barack are simply the latest self-serving, very shrewd politicians to live in The White House. You are so very good at coning many Americans into believing you are something you are not – Saintly creatures!

In fact, drop the Antony and Cleopatra act. I suggest  instead you invite  Bill and Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump for sure and all five of you come as identical Con Artists to The White House Halloween Party.

That makes even more sense.

I won’t bother to come at all. I will find something far better to do…

Celebrate the 300th episode of Obama’s America far from The White House.
