McQueengate Update: We’re Over This Now.

Michelle Obama

The hands-down best comment on last week’s “Michelle Obama and McQueengate” post came from Maggie, who said: “She’s a lawyer. A LAWYER. Not a mannequin. Not a model.”

And now, here’s FLOTUS herself, laying the matter to rest (on “Good Morning America,” via The Cut):

Look, women, wear what you love. That’s all I can say. That’s my motto. […] It’s nice to have on a nice suit, but it’s a lot nicer to change a generation in terms of their health […] It’s a better use of my time to focus on rallying this country around our military families.

That’s right. LAWYERED.

So put that in your pipe and smoke it, Vanity Fair‘s Bob Colacello.*

*If you missed Jenna Sauers’ great rebuttal, Colacello is the charming critic who not only sputtered about Obama’s choice of an Un-American Designer, but had to so unnecessarily go to there by adding, “It made her look gigantic.” Because that’s classy.
