Huffington Post editor-in-chief, Arianna Huffington, has a little criticism for the First Lady. On her radio show with conservative Mary Matalin, Both Sides Now with Huffington and Matalin, Huffington implored the FLOTUS to focus less on lavish trips and more on people that are suffering.

Here's exactly what she said:

I'd love [Michelle] to be more [like] Eleanor Roosevelt right now, because the country needs an Eleanor Roosevelt who's going to go around and at the same time that she's doing fundraisers in Beverly Hills and Bel Air ... she should go to South Central [Los Angeles], I mean, if I were Michelle Obama right now, I would not go anywhere for a fundraiser without going and seeing the places where there is pain, where there is struggle, where there is homelessness, where there is unemployment, because we need to bring that conversation to the center of the debate and there's nothing like a first lady or ... a candidate to take us there.

Listen to the audio of her comments below.

What do you think? Huffington's comments come just days after the Obama family did volunteer work in D.C.

Is this much ado about nothing or does Arianna have a point?

  1. I do not know the context of the criticism. She is entitled to her opinion. But the one thing I appreciate about Mrs. Obama is that she holds her own and sets her own agenda. I think she knows where she could be of best use.
