DISARMED: Barack Obama’s Wife Conceals Signature Feature During Convention Address

Michelle Obama, a prominent spouse who summers on Martha's Vineyard, addressed the Democratic Party's virtual convention on Monday, but neglected to show off her signature assets.

When the Obama patriarch, Barack H., left office in disgrace in 2017, the U.S. media mourned the loss of Michelle's "guns," a popular slang term for arms. Vogue magazine captured the despair many journalists felt in its cleverly titled piece, "A Farewell to Michelle Obama's Flawless Arms," which allowed readers to relive the former First Lady's "7 Best Arm Moments."

Michelle's arms were an immediate hit after her husband was elected in 2008. A few months after the inauguration, for example, People magazine published a stunning report about the time celebrity actress Kirstie Alley told Oprah Winfrey that she wanted Michelle Obama's arms.

But they were nowhere to be seen on Monday night when Michelle delivered the primetime address at the Democratic convention, which has thus far received mixed reviews on the social networking website Twitter.

Michelle, who was also beloved for wearing outfits, donned a conservative, long-sleeved dress that did not appear to match the moment, when many Democratic voters are longing to turn back the clock to a simpler time—back when Joe Biden was just that guy who stood next to Barack, before he became last best hope to prevent another four years (at least) of Donald Trump.
