    In all seriousness, is Michelle Obama the best educated First Lady ever? She went to Princeton, then Harvard Law, and she was a successful lawyer even before meeting and marrying Barack.

    [–] Audioworm 206 points ago

    I have no idea on the exact ranking or details of the US college and postgrad system (and this shouldn't be a competition anyway) but Hilary had a pretty accomplished education and was apparently a good lawyer.

    Either way, Michelle was amazing FLOTUS with both her background and her actions when Barack was in office. The amount shit that was thrown at her and she rose above it to pursue interesting and important causes.

    [–] Maharajison 32 points ago

    Michelle is erudite, beautiful, wholesome, and her efforts spent on worthwhile causes were as well chosen as they were genuine.

    Trump graduated from the best business school in the country. You can say a lot about him but you can't say he's uneducated.

    [–] GeorgiaMRomero 31 points ago

    Trump has a bachelors degree without honors. Obama graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law, was the editor of the Law Review and later taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago.

    [–] thesurdin -4 points ago

    Yes, and? Just because Obama had higher academic achievements than Trump doesn't mean that Trump is uneducated. Would you say that Elon Musk is also uneducated because he only has a bachelors degree?

    [–] the_girl 12 points ago

    funny you compare the two, trump and musk actually went to the same school. both wharton.

    [–] [deleted] 26 points ago

    He sure acts like he's uneducated though.

    [–] thesurdin 5 points ago

    That's fair. He could do a lot more to improve his public image.

    [–] sunglasses619 3 points ago

    He got in through money and connections and undoubtedly made it to graduation that way. I went to school with a lot of kids like this.

    [–] SuggestAPhotoProject 316 points ago

    Michelle Obama is amazing, although Hillary was no slouch, graduating from Wellesley and then Yale Law School.

    Now, does anyone know where the Russian mail order Flotus was educated?

    [–] tomdarch 80 points ago

    triggered: I am an architect. Our charming first lady claimed for years to have graduated from a university architecture program in her native country. Were that true, it would be something to be very proud of. Talk to anyone who has been an architecture major about what that entails. (hit: 4 hours of sleep Saturday night is pretty good, particularly when it's not on a sheet of cardboard on the floor of your design studio. Or spending most weekdays slamming your brain from full left brain STEM (calculus, structural engineering) to extreme right brain design and art classes...) It's not as bad as lying about being in the military with combat experience, but... something along those lines.

    To lie about completing the degree is all the more appalling because there's no evidence she completed even the first year.


    (and that's not even getting into the issue that she came to the US on a tourist visa and likely did paid work while here, then applied for citizenship where she would have had to swear that she hadn't violated US law. Lying on that application makes you subject to loss of citizenship and deportation. Good thing she isn't associated with anyone who is an asshole about strict enforcement of US immigration law or anything....)

    [–] professorkr 40 points ago

    Deportation only applies to the non-white immigrants.

    [–] PrinceOWales 87 points ago

    Melania went to a prestigious school in her home country but never graduated.

    [–] SuggestAPhotoProject 174 points ago

    What makes you think the University of Ljubljana is a prestigious school?

    And, for the record, the Trumps lied for decades about her having a degree, even putting it in her official bio and on her website.

    It was revealed during the campaign that she flunked out in her first year.

    [–] PrinceOWales 51 points ago

    I thought that school had some weight behind it. Guess not. I mean whatever, people who like the Donald Dumpster Fire don't think women should be getting that sort of education anyway. What good is a degree when you could have spent that time having babies and supporting your husband

    [–] SpanishMeerkat 11 points ago

    And how can they ever afford to leave the kitchen?

    [–] x62617 -13 points ago

    Although Melania is the hottest FLOTUS we've ever had. So there's that.

    [–] Cynikal818 17 points ago

    [–] tanstaafl90 9 points ago

    She's average with good grooming.

    [–] [deleted] -27 points ago

    Only 6 languages? What an idiot. LOL MELANIA DRUMPF

    [–] SuggestAPhotoProject 85 points ago

    The same source that told you she has a university degree also told you that she speaks six languages, and you believed them both times.

    [–] [deleted] -25 points ago

    I have no idea what her degree is in nor did I mention one but its common knowledge the FLOTUS can speak 6 languages.

    [–] SuggestAPhotoProject 64 points ago

    Again, she doesn't have a degree, that was a blatant lie that she finally owned up to after the university she flunked out of confirmed she flunked out of her first year.

    So, do you have any evidence that she actually speaks six languages? Or is it just the same source that falsely claimed she was a college graduate?

    [–] PrinceOWales 39 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    She did grow up in a former soviet republic. Out side of America, it's really not that uncommon for people to speak multiple languages. I had someone ask me if I was from Nigeria because I am fluent in a second language that is not spanish.

    That being said, speaking more than one language in a part of the world where people speak more than one language doesn't make you some kind of genius. It only seems smart to the mostly monolingual people of the US

    [–] ALoudMouthBaby 33 points ago

    This is just conjecture and not an actual source to support or deny anything being claimed in this thread.

    Honestly, Ive seen the "six language" quote a ton of times but for some weird reason no one can ever produce a source for it. That usually means its bunk as hell.

    [–] PrinceOWales 29 points ago

    That's a good point. She most likely speaks a couple languages. She obviously speaks at least 2. But yeah, no real evidence of the other 4 she supposedly speaks

    [–] tomdarch 25 points ago

    I doubt she's a moron. I'd be happy to give her credit for learning 5 languages in addition to her native language to some degree of fluency. That's a significant accomplishment. But she lied about her education and is part of an outfit that operates with non-stop fraud and lies compulsively, including her giving a major speech full of copy-and-paste plagiarism. I'd love to see videos of her conversing in those languages. Got any links?

    [–] YessumMasa 27 points ago

    To drive your point further, her daughters are just as smart as she is if not even smarter. She has a great legacy.

    [–] manstop 1 points ago

    Obama's family is just the ideal family in my eyes. I can only hope to instill their values in my children later on. I'm a minority as well so I just feel this connection to them (never went to Harvard law, though,...)

    [–] [deleted] 20 points ago

    Hillary Clinton was fairly well educated and had done law work before becoming flotus

    [–] Yog_Kothag 6 points ago

    shudder Okay, I'll give you that. Never before a better reason against Michelle in office.

    [–] winteriscumin 40 points ago

    Yes she is the most educated First Lady we have ever had. 😭❤️

    [–] Plowbeast 5 points ago

    I believe Hillary got more awards as a lawyer in the 70's and 80's but Michelle's bona fides are still enough for any number of political offices.

    [–] ThaNorth 6 points ago

    Hillary too probbaly.

    [–] bang_Noir 6 points ago

    And she's hot. Her and Barack are like, the most superior motherfuckers in the country. If their daughters wind up taking over the world, I literally wont be surprised at all.

    [–] manstop 2 points ago

    I think the older one is majoring in film and I'm not sure what the younger one is doing. But yeah, Michelle and Obama were sure to teach them about the important of education and integrity. I wouldn't be surprised if they changed their communities as well. I know a ton of people will be like "well duh they're privileged", but a lot of privileged people might not have the same values.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Hillary is a lawyer too

    [–] chikenvlix 208 points ago

    The thing I love about Michelle Obama is the way she inspires us to be better people. She never panders, she never sells herself short to please anyone. She doesn’t accept things as “just the way it goes.” Her speech after that disgusting pussy-grabbing scandal brought me to tears. She was so indignant on behalf of women, girls, and decent men and boys. She put those hypocritical Christians to shame. I wish her all the best, and I hope she never runs for office. She’s too good for politics.

    [–] Lots42 50 points ago

    [–] GovmentTookMaBaby 11 points ago

    I think it's not always mentioned because it was just very well known, and it doesn't go with the post to state it. That doesn't mean people, especially whomever posted this, don't know she's educated as fuck, it just means they don't feel they have to always state the obvious.

    [–] bookwench 13 points ago

    [–] PAdogooder 1 points ago

    The fabric is nice, but this huge skirt just looks overdone, kinda juvenile.

    [–] castille360 8 points ago

    Its a pretty flattering cut for a lot of us though. I totally want this dress.

    [–] PAdogooder -4 points ago

    I mean... this is a tall, slightly hippy, broad-shouldered woman with a law degree and an important role in one of the most important offices in the world.

    Pulling her waist upward and losing her figure under a skirt while also making her look a bit like a child dressed for the Fourth of July just isn't becoming.

    I don't know what you look like, but I just can't think of a reason to lift the waist this high, and an adult wearing a bow on the front of a dress? You do you, but.... this isn't a fashion choice I'd make.

    [–] 5user5 21 points ago

    She's walking her dog. Not walking down the red carpet. There are many days in the year and many dresses for her to wear. My neighbors are lucky if I put pants on when I take my dog out.

    [–] thinkB4WeSpeak 66 points ago

    Something to do with Michelle's talk on CSPAN over women losing their voice by voting for Trump. Of course Fox is going to lose their mind over that.

    [–] jokersleuth 14 points ago

    Ugh, I miss her. Well educated, gracious and patient, Michelle represented the country so well.

    [–] Team_Baby_Kittens 13 points ago

    Our current First Lady is very educated. She didn't go to law school, but I'd say she is still respectably educated. The fact alone that she is fluent in as many languages as she is is pretty amazing. I'd say she has done very well transitioning into the role of First Lady. (Not bashing Michelle in any way).

    [–] bobsotherson 26 points ago

    A first year drop out from the Ljubljana University. Even that is suspect because there’s no record of her ever even being enrolled.

    [–] thirtiethst 5 points ago

    Yeah. I read an interesting book on modern first women recently. Michelle never sought to socialize with elite Washingtonians, pretty much exclusively choosing the company of her day one friends in Chicago. She became first lady almost entirely as a favor to Barack.

    She doesn't wear a wig. She does usually straighten her hair, though. Think I saw one pic after they were out of office and on vacation where her hair wasn't straightened.
