SPOTTED: First Lady Michelle Obama Tries To Go Undercover At TARGET In VA!

Could you imagine doing your usual Target run and seeing First Lady Michelle Obama in your checkout line?!  She was spotted looking incognito today in Alexandria, VA while shopping it up.

 

Pics inside...


 

Looks like Mrs. Obama's security threw on their street clothes to blend in because no suits with earbuds were spotted in the store. 

Right outside of D.C. in Alexandria, VA, FLOTUS decided to grab a few things for 30-40 minutes with her assistant at the local Target.  She was dressed in a floral button down, black pants, a Nike baseball cap, and shades.  But of course, she was still somewhat noticeable.  The Associated Press reported that Secret Service arrived 30 minutes before her and blended with the other customers.  The only person who recognized the First Lady was her cashier!

In case you're wondering if it was really her, the White House confirmed it this afternoon saying,

"It is not uncommon for the First Lady to slip out to run an errand, eat at a local restaurant or otherwise enjoy the city outside the White House gates," said Kristina Schake, communications director for the First Lady.

CBS News reports the pics were snapped by an Associated Press photographer who says he was tipped off that she would be there.

Sometimes you just want to do things yourself and without all the hoopla...

One of the smatest first ladies, including Hillary. When I shop if I have two or three bags I push the empty cart back to that section of the store. FYI they vacationed @ the Hamptons before he was president.

To all the dummies saying its staged because she is carrying bags and pushing an empty cart you are slow. After check out most people carry the bags and then you mut push the cart back to the cart section. And the Obamas were wealthy prior to moving in the white house. Work hard and you too can have nice things.

Ok seriously people, so Mrs

Ok seriously people, so Mrs Obama shopped at Target so she can look like "one of us". Really. So whether she is rich and spends her money on lavish vacations and jewelry, that means she doesn't shop at Target. So "rich" people don't shop at Target. Wow, there is a lot of ignorance in these comments. Your attacking the presidents wife because you don't like him, how mature. Does anyone understand that he is just playing the hand he was dealt. You guys blame him for so much and the reality this country was in a recession when he came into office. It's sad that instead of doing what you can to "help" in bringing America back your focusing your time and energy on saying such negative things about someone's wife. Sad! People very sad!

I think all of you need a life. I'm an average person, grew up in the "hood" and I'm making something of myself. And when the time comes that I can spend 40k on a braclet or any other piece of jewlery that I like guess what! IT WILL BE MINES! That doesn't make me any less "down to earth" than any of you. I am also a war veteran and a gov worker and people KILL ME saying that we're wasting tax payers money. IDIOTS I am a tax payer also! WE ALL PAY TAXES! People sit up and complain about what Barack is doing and how he's doing such a bad job but if it wasn't for you idiots who voted Bush in we wouldn't be in half the predicament that we're in now. Barack is NOT God, he can't come in and fix the US with one snap of his finger. He's trying to get things done and the republicans are unwilling to work with him. So before you start complaining about what he's not doing, do some research.

ALL of you are HATERS!!! if

ALL of you are HATERS!!! if she really needed a photo op Target wouldn't have been the place. If she went to some fancy ass store y'all would be hating b/c she didn't go to a place like Target to purchase regular household items. You can't win for losing in America, its the same old regular "You damned if you do and damned if you don't" outlook. Y'all remain blessed and OBAMA 2012 (bioches)

If she was trying to slip out "incognito", why was the reporter "tipped off" to be there to take pictures? Sounds like a staged photo op...And why are she and her assistant carrying all the bags while she pushes an empty cart? Strange!!!

Just look at the look on her

Just look at the look on her face. Look at it and tell me she isn't doing as second nature. She looks so at home shopping at Target. I bet she is going to the food bank later to donate all the props she bought today.

It doesn't matter how staged

It doesn't matter how staged this looks. The real die hard supporters don't care that this is just another staged photo with photographer in on it. We will support her anyway, because we really want to believe that she is one of us and we want to stay in our dream world. That way we don't have to regret supporting her in the first place. Its the rich peoples fault that the governement doesn't have enough money. You are a racist. I just wanted to call you that and get it out of the way now.
Obamalamb's picture

While I love The Obama's,

While I love The Obama's, Michelle and Barak. I can't help but think this is the first time she has ever been shopping in a mega-mart in her life. Why? Well, because most people don't have an assistant to carry the bags for us while pushing an empty cart. Somebody didn't tell her to put the bags of pre shopped stuff (which is also much larger than some knick knacks listed in the story), into the cart then pushed to the car where they are transfered to the car for the drive home. Its clearly a hoax. Maybe she is doing it to make up for being seen with $40k worth of bling that the American tax payer paid for the other day (I could live a year on what she paid for that piece of jewelry). While she looked more at natural being at a party acting like a queen then she did shopping at Target. Real down to Earth, smelly, people go to Wal-Mart by the way. This would have looked more believable if it wasn't staged for my benefit. Real [little] people don't get armed protection when they are shopping (look at the guy behind her in line looking around with no items to buy. You can clearly see the imprint of a sidearm on his right side under the white average man shirt.) The real peon serfs go with thought in the back of their mind that you do not have armed guards protecting us and we could get killed if someone really wanted to. And we go anyway because we need food. However, she should have gone alone pick her own items push them in the cart by herself not finding anything and having to ask someone for help. Pay with a debit or quest card only to have it rejected, put somethings back like you really didn't want them. Then put the bags in that cart thing because, you don't have an assistant to carry the bags, push with both hands and take them home only to have to put them in your bare cupboards. Wishing you still had those items you had to put back, because you did want that bag of sugar or cerial. Then it would have been more believable and less fraudulent looking. On a different subject, hopefully, if Barak tries to stage a hunting photo before the elections he will remember to take the price tags off his gear. With all the anti-gun rhetoric he's been talking the last few years he would be wise to skip this photo-op this time. Hale Obama, hope and change and if you disagree with me you are a racist...

I've met the First Lady twice, last time being Sept 30th 11th and she was nothing but kind each time. For you folks who have never had the chance to meet her, how could you judge her? So what they vacation in the Hamptons, they are millionaires. I am a black middle classer and I have no problem with it. Before he became President, I'm sure Michelle shopped in regular places like Target.

It was the WHITE HOUSE that tipped off the news photographer to "catch" her acting like "one of us"!! http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0911/64868.html Sorry, a snob like Michelle, who shows up to paint for charity in a $200 shirt, doesn't shop at Target.... Yes, I bet she needed to just pick up dishwashing soap...or toilet bowl cleaner.... or paper towels for all her servants....Riiiiiight! ((((Also, WTH, She's pushing a cart with almost nothing in it while she carries a whole bunch of bags & her assistant behind her carries a whole bunch more bags?!? Why are you pushing a cart then, if you're carrying all your bags?)))) She obviously doesn't EVER shop at Target & there is a reason the White House set up this photo op. What a fraud she & her husband are--empty facades, putting on a show because they think we are stupid fools. (& too many of you are) Yuck!

What does race have to do

What does race have to do with anything? If she was white she would still look out of place shopping at Target. Don't be a racebaiter. It does nothing to help your argument. Also, real people don't shop at Target, because to spite its name it doesn't have a sporting goods section and real people pick up a box of ammo while getting air fresheners and cans of corn. You can get all of that at Wally World.

There are plenty of intelligent black people who know Obama is a crappy president. Race has nothing to do with his inability to run our country (or his ability to ruin it). It is about time we had a black man, or woman for that matter, as president. But let's not just jump at the first choice please? Put a little thought into choices; don't be color blind. You are just as racist assuming that anyone who dislikes this president does so because of his color not his choices. Also, stop yell-typing at everyone. It makes you sound ridiculous.

Wasteful spending of other peoples money isn't cute either. Its more insulting to my intelligence then anything else. When she joined the public life she gave up the right to act like a snob, spending money like its going out of style. But it shows what the whole family is really like and lacks the character and discipline that we want in the first family. Its should be called the fist family because if you don't like what they are doing you will get a fist in your face by all their supporters.

Nothing like being willfully gullible. Yes Mrs. O is just like middle America. Pushing an empty cart and carrying the shopping bags. If she is so “just like us” why plastic instead of cloth? Did she “dress down’ to be among the common folk? Why was a photographer there just when the First Lady showed up for her publicity op? I’m sure more Walmart is next to ensure the non-union folk vote for BHO.

Yeah, she's worn Gap, J-Crew and H$M before on occasion. But usually only when she is going to sit down for an interview where they well report what it is she worn.
